About Tara Bentley

Greetings! I'm the mother of two girls, both homeschool graduates. The Creation Museum has played a big part in our lives over the years and our oldest daughter even got married there in 2013! We enjoy hosting families as they come together from different parts of the country to visit the museum and spend time together. I look forward to helping you make your stay in Petersburg a cherished memory for your own family!

Met our needs

  • 3 of 5

We were happy with the charm of a historic house and spaciousness. Our family of 11 with ages ranging from 1 to 64 were all suitably accommodated for sleeping and other basic comforts. There were ample linens supplied and furnishings are lived in but clean and suitable for a family group. The kitchen had a good set of cookware, table service and glassware. There were 2 coffee pots- nice for a large group. The patio could use a little more seating but the porch and balcony have chairs which could be moved if needed. We were pleasantly surprised at how close it was to the creation museum, one of our day trips, but there really isn't anything else nearby to do. The depressed area has a small playground and a riverfront and cemetery with very old headstones for history buffs. There is a small convenience store nearby. I don't think there is an ice cream parlor within 15 miles. It is about a 20-30 minute ride to other shopping. The neighbors are quiet but the area is quite run down. There were a couple of neighborly cats and a friendly pig that came visiting. LOL!

We would stay closer to other activities next time but we probably wouldn't find such a perfect house for our group for the price.

BTW- wifi password didn't work but owner answered phone and we troubleshoot that together by resetting the modem.

The perfect house for our large group!

  • 5 of 5

Our group of 17 absolutely loved our stay here. True to their word the home is located 10 minutes from the Creation Museum. The small town it sits in is rich with history and we enjoyed walking through and seeing historic buildings. The fact that the house included all bedding and towels was also incredibly helpful! Tara was great to work with. Thank you for allowing us a comfortable stay on our extended family vacation!

Nice spot close to creation museum

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay and would stay again when we go to the Creation Museum. House was comfortable and worked great for two families. AC worked great. We had several suggestions and the owner was happy for the feedback.

We maxed out capacity...comfortably!

  • 5 of 5

We brought 14 youth to see the Creation Museum, along with 4 of us chaperones. The 18 of us slept comfortably in this house, with plenty of room for prepping food (for 18), eating, playing games, and the living room was the perfect size for our group lessons. We were right down the road from the Museum, and a reasonable drive from Cincinnati. The house was clean and we felt right at home. It was exactly as advertised and perfect for our group. I had chaperones and kids alike repeatedly tell me this was the best accommodations we've ever had. It was perfect!
