We are the Poff family...Dad, Mom, and 7 beautiful children (ages 1 to 23).
Barry and Angella Poff purchased this cottage in 2014
Enjoyed the cottage very much. Everything we needed. The wall art was inspiring.
The location of the house was absolutely awesome. A nice view of the Kentucky landscape in both the front and back of the property. Roomy kitchen and dinning area. The upstairs was also a perfect play area for our little girl.
Close to market. Close to great Mexican restaurant. Great heat, everything worked. Quiet. FUN upstairs loft for kids, decorated like Noah's Ark. Our grand kids and grandma had a super special time sleeping, in the 'Ark.'
Granddad, me, slept comfortablely on the futon. Our son and daughter-in-law had the master bedroom, with a port-a-crib for the baby. High chair in kitchen a life saver. Washer and dryer very useful. We would definitely come again on our next trip. For the Ark Encounter, the 8 y.o. got the most and stayed all day. The two younger siblings 5 & 2, were close enough, to slip home for a nap after lunch. Next time we will arrive two hours after opening, to let things settle out. The later in the day, the lines at exhibits were definitely shorter. I shared the framed sayings with FB. Everyone like them. Thank you for sharing your lively guest cottage. We enjoyed meeting the neighbor who originally grew up in this home.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Everything was just what we needed for our stay. There were nine adults from three different states. It was close to the Ark and the Science Museum. A very good time by all.
Overall everything was as advertised and hosts were very friendly. Very convenient to the Ark Encounter and the home felt very welcoming and quaint (in the positive sense of the word).
Though it does "sleep 10", there is really only one "real bed". As we had mostly older kids (11 to 19) the mattresses and space and single bathroom weren't ideal for us. Probably a lot better for someone with little kids.
The house was everything I expected and more. It is close to the Ark Encounter and the Creation Museum and made for a very comfortable base camp. Would definitely stay again.
