About the Property
2 Bedrooms, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 5-7 (See Deborah's Guesthouses for more)
The open design of the Bank makes it ideal for 2-3 adults plus children. The only bathroom is accessed through the main bedroom, off the kitchen.
**Note: If you are one family with more than 5 children coming (NOT adult children :)), and many of them are young, send an inquiry to me with how many adults, how many children plus their ages, and we will consider going over the maximum in this case.
The Bank's septic system is also "historic", and we have to treat it with tender loving care!
The vault is now a bedroom, with a twin over full bunk bed. There's also a TV with video player in the vault (no TV reception), just in case you want to lock your kids in there for a while. (Kidding...the steel vault door is wired open :)
The main teller's area is now the living room with TV/DVD. Plus a table if your group is larger and wants to eat meals in this spacious room. The living room has a twin day bed, and a twin trundle bed.
Off the living room is the former office area, which now has a queen size bed, a large reading chair with ottoman, and a nice-sized closet filled with extra linens, blankets, and some games and puzzles.
The kitchen is in the back of the bank--this was the employees' area. It comes complete with dishwasher, microwave, fridge/freezer, toaster oven, pots and pans, dishes, coffee maker, and a small dining area.
Off the kitchen is the laundry area, and that leads to the full bath, with tub/shower, towels and washcloths, plus hairdryer. (NOTE: The only bathroom is located at the back of the Bank, accessed through the main bedroom and the kitchen.)

About the owner: Originally from the St. Louis area, I lived in Petersburg from 1998 to 2013. The first time I drove into town looking for a home to buy, the 'Old Petersburg Operahouse' was for sale. Having majored in music many years ago, the old building sent out a siren call for me to buy it! I've been buying and rehabbing in town ever since. In 2011 I opened The Cottage for vacationers. It was a very slow start, and I wondered if it had been the right decision. But soon the Creation Museum guests started arriving--I love my guests! What a joy to interact with these Christian families (many with lots of children :), who are kind and intelligent...and take care of my home! It was obvious right away that a vacation home offers a much-needed alternative to hotel rooms...most of which cannot accommodate the larger families. Also, the ability to cook your own meals instead of eating out can save money. (And doing a little laundry during vacation can rescue you from a mountain of clothes when you get home...;-) I hope you enjoy the adventure of staying in this historic bank building...
There's a daybed and trundle in the living room for extra sleeping.
A vault inside the vault. One dad threw coins in there for his kids to find!
