About the Property

Sleeps 10. 5 Bedrooms. 1 1/2 Baths. Full bath upstairs, 1/2 bath downstairs

Rackett Enterprise LLC was started in 2006 with the encouragement of our parents, Bill & Jean Marie Rackett. There are 9 children in our family between the ages of 65 and 48. Our goal is to remain a close knit family in our later years of life. Mom and Dad always provided us with opportunities to get together for the holidays, vacations, picnics and sleepovers so their 9 children, 29 grandchildren and 12 great- grandchildren would be able to spend time together. By starting this business, our parents knew we would have a meeting each year so we would never lose our family connection when they were no longer with us. In February, 2014 our dad went to heaven to be with his wife of 60 years. We have a beautiful historic home in Lebanon, Ohio where we grew up and have wonderful memories. Now, the dilemma is: What do we do with this 5 bedroom home?

Our business would like to provide families, business men or women or couples a “HOME AWAY FROM HOME” in historic Lebanon, Ohio. We would like to make your stay when you travel as comfortable as possible. No more hotel rooms! No more living out of a suitcase! No more being cramped or having noisy people next to you because now you have a WHOLE HOUSE and not just a room.

Our home is very spacious (as you can imagine with 9 children). You will have a living room, family room, closed in porch, large kitchen equipped with everything you need to cook, one and half bathrooms, patio, beautifully landscaped back yard and 5 bedrooms to choose from. It also is on the historic register in Lebanon, Ohio.

The location of our home is perfect for vacations. We are 2 blocks from the historic Golden Lamb.

Additional information about rental rates

Fees:

  • Refundable Damage Deposit $250
  • Cleaning fee $75
  • Tax Rate 9.75%

Notes:

Beginning December 1, 2015, our daily rate will be $250.00, an increase of $25.00. We have not raised our rates in over a year. We had some major repairs this past year. We try to be very flexible with the check-in and check-out times. Once we have the house cleaned, we just want you to enjoy it! So, even though check-in says 3:00 pm, we usually are able to allow you to come anytime the first day. Just let us know if you have special circumstances. If you want to rent days during the week instead of the week-end, please let us know. Also, if you have questions regarding deposit and final payment, please e-mail questions to: okellyme@aol.com

The $250.00 security deposit will be refunded when the house is left the way you found it. However, if you want to make more than 2 payments, let me know. Sometimes, it is easier to divide the payments up more often.


Owner's cancellation policy:

50% refund for cancellations more than 7 days before check-in date.

100% refund for cancellations more than 14 days before check-in date.


Don't forget your vacation protection! Get protected now

Adding our Vacation Protection services can make sure your getaway goes smoothly, no matter what. We offer Cancellation Protection and Damage Protection so you can truly relax.

About the owner: There are 9 children in our family and we are excited about renting our family home as a vacation rental. We want everyone to enjoy the history of our home, the decor and the peacefulness. It is located on a quiet street in Lebanon, Ohio, just minutes from the famous Golden Lamb restaurant.

Why the Owner Chose Lebanon, OH, USA:
Our home is on the historic register and was built in 1808. The history of our home is fascinating. We want people to enjoy having the freedom of an entire house, not just a hotel room. We want this to be your 'Home Away From Home'

The benefits are endless. You can walk to the Golden Lamb, you can take a train ride at the end of our street and the antiques in Lebanon are everywhere! We are close to Cincinnati, Dayton and Columbus, Ohio for any one day trips. There is also a public golf course within 2 blocks from our home. Outlet malls are within 10 minutes from our home as well as the Miami Valley Casino. IF you are sharing our home with different families, the individual amount each family will pay is minimal.
