About Mary Hitzfield

My husband Dan and I live in Petersburg with our two children and choose to make this quiet little town our home. This is a great advantage to our customers for us to be so close. We can easily help you out with any of your needs or questions. We reside in the “Berkshire house” which was constructed around 1928 form the Brick of the old distillery building. Dan works as a firefighter and I am a Librarian. Dan’s family has lived in Petersburg for 5 generations, so needless to say we are vested in our community. When traveling ourselves, we often stay in a vacation rental. We find this to be the best and most affordable choice for our family and we think that you will too. So we hope to welcome you to our community. Please feel free to contact us with any questions.

Sincerely,

Mary Hitzfield

Why Mary Hitzfield chose Kentucky

Great location for visiting Ark Encounter and Creation Museum. Wonderful place to walk around town and along the river. This is one of the few houses in Petersburg that has a large yard for children to play.

Great place to stay while visiting area attractions!

  • 4 of 5

Loved this house! Old, but very comfortable. Updated nicely, while leaving the charm of the '20's intact! My husband and I rented the Parlor house, along with our mothers who are in their 80's, for a family trip to the Creation Museum and Ark Encounter! Great trip, great accommodations.

The house was very nice.

  • 5 of 5

The house was very clean and well maintained. The kitchen was well stocked with most anything anyone would need to prepare a meal for a small or large family. The owner was very pleasant and helpful when I called with some questions previous to the trip. Loved having a washer/drier traveling with four toddlers. The house is very close to the Creation Museum and the The Ark Encounter is a short drive away. I would highly recommend this property.

This was our second time in the Parlor House and it was just as nice as the first visit. We came with friends and had a wonderful stay. We came to visit the Ark Encounter and the Creation Museum. We had everything we needed, and it was great having a washer and dryer, which we certainly utilized. We plan to be return to Mary's properties in the future.
