Cincinnati house description
Our home is less than 5 minutes from Downtown Cincinnati, Ohio with great restaurants, fine shopping, and great museums. Our place is perfect if you want a small town feel without giving up the advantages of the 'big city.' Within 5-10 minutes of Rookwood Pavilion outdoor mall and Kenwood Town Center indoor mall. Great place to stay for a weekend series with the Cincinnati Reds or a Cincinnati Bengals game. 50 minutes from Downtown Lexington and 70 minutes from Downtown Louisville. 30 minutes from Perfect North Ski/Snowboard Slopes. 25 minutes from the newly finished Creation Museum. 5 minutes from Newport Aquarium and 10 minutes from Cincinnati Zoo.
This house is within a 5-10 minute walk of two major grocery stores, several local restaurants, Blockbuster, Starbucks, and not to mention the close proximity to our famous hometown ice-cream, Graeter's.
House comes with a stocked kitchen with quality appliances. Kitchen has entry to the main living space, the stairs to the second floor, and the dining room. It walks out to a back deck overlooking the fenced-in backyard, which dips down to a small creek. The dining room has a table that can seat 6 comfortably and 8 if needed, and it enters into the main living space. There is also a high chair available for infants or small children. The main living space has plenty of comfortable seating, a small desk and chair (perfect for laptop work while connected to our super fast WiFi internet), and a flat screen TV with DVD player. The whole house is fully furnished with ceiling fans throughout for added comfort. Upstairs has 3 bedrooms and 1 bathroom. The master bedroom has a queen size bed and windows overlooking the front of the house. The other 2 bedrooms each have a full bed and one has a baby crib and twin bed as well. The full bathroom has an old fashion claw foot tub with shower. All beds have linens and one bath towel per person will be provided.

A Great Holiday Retreat
A Great Holiday Retreat
We stayed for a week with our two young children (ages 1 & 3). The reservation process and all communications leading up to and during our stay were very smooth, courteous and speedy. The photos in the listing are a perfect representation of the house itself and we were very happy upon our arrival to the property. The house is situated in a quiet neighborhood and the property (and surrounding properties) are very well maintained. The house is located very close to a sizeable shopping center which was convenient. It's also the perfect distance from the expressway - close enough to quickly jump on, but just far enough away so you're not inundated with road noise. The house is older and, therefore, has some of the interesting quirks of such. During a very cold week the heat kept us perfectly warm, but some of the rooms do heat up much more than others. There was more than an ample amount of storage and closet space. The bedroom furniture is a bit dated and worn, but all functioned well and provided us with the room we needed to spread out our things and be comfortable for our stay. The bear claw tub and shower were a little cramped, but the water pressure and temperature were fine. This is a very clean house in general and is well-kept. There were also ammenities specifically for children that we were so grateful for: toys (suitable for children 4 and under) placed alongside a perfect play rug, a new and very sturdy Pack 'n Play that kept the baby sound asleep, bunk beds, a high chair and child-sized dining utensils and dishes. Because we knew there were stairs, we brought our own gate. Since we stayed over a holiday, it was nice to be able to have a couple family members over and the children have a place to play while the adults chatted. Overall, this was a great stay and we'd recommend it. There is a very eclectic mix of old and new in the house interior that make it charming and the location is convenient. Most importantly, we had confidence that the owners would be rapidly responsive if we needed anything or had any problems during our stay. We were most grateful for that.

Very nice, clean house. We stayed during what was probably the hottest week of the year and the central A/C kept it very comfortable. Much to see and do in the Cincinnati/Newport area and I would recommend this property to anyone visiting there.

Year Purchased: 2007
About: Born and raised in Cincinnati, this area will always be home. I run a test prep firm and help thousands of high school students get scholarship money for college. Having this property is a way to stay connected to the city I love.
The location means everything for this property. Less than 500 meters from the interstate and 2 minutes from downtown (traffic is never a problem!), this home gives you the feel of being in the suburbs while basically being in the city.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Close to interstate. Hearing the fireworks from the stadiums. Porch swing on cool summer nights. Grilling out on the back deck. Original wood trim. Unique design on main level hardwood flooring.
