About Deborah

While I was living in The Cottage (VRBO 384587) I noticed The Victorian three blocks away was in foreclosure. I love old houses! After seeing the monumental overhaul it needed, saying a few prayers, and talking to family and friends, I bought it...and was instantly overwhelmed!

First project: Put in a huge deck in back--the beautiful views kept me inspired during the long rehab. And now it's all finished and worth every bit of the TLC it required. Hopefully it blesses my guests as well!

Deborah purchased this house in 2007

Great home for families to enjoy time together with easy access to Creation Museum, Ark & Aquarium!

  • 4 of 5

The set up was great. We had 6 adults and 10 children 6&under. We all slept well and loved having two kitchen areas! It’s a fun Victoria house but with that you have the wood floors (easily hear kids running and dropping toys upstairs) and loud doors 😂. The view of the river was fabulous, the deck and backyard is all securely blocked and fenced from going down the hill. The kids were able to play and have so much fun. Used the fire pit the last night! Plenty of kitchen supplies for cooking. Great stay!

We loved Deborah's guesthouse!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Deborah's guesthouse over Labor Day weekend and had a wonderful time! The property was clean and we had plenty of room for the four families to spread out. We really enjoyed watching the boats on the river. We have recommended it to friends! Thanks for a great get-away!

Peaceful home right on the Ohio river

  • 4 of 5

Very relaxing get away. Plenty of room to spread out for our group of 3 couples. Luxurious towels provided. Well equipped kitchens. Yes I said 2! Bugs were bad so we couldn't enjoy the outside porch. But we absolutely loved the upstairs screened in porch. In between touring creation museum and the ark we sat in the porch and played games and watched boats go up and down the river. So relaxing! Would stay again.

Perfect for us.

  • 5 of 5

We are a group of 13 parents, children and grandchildren. There was plenty of room for all of us. The house is nicely decorated. Everything we needed was in the kitchen. The Victorian even has videos, books, and toys. The bedrooms are very comfortable, and nice and roomy. Eating on the deck and watching the river was really a plus. The trip in is a bit of a thrill ride (the kids loved it). There are lots of hills and curves. While there we visited the Ark and the Creation Museum. It was a fantastic vacation. It was so easy to communicate with Deborah and her manager, Wanda.
