Description

Petersburg House Rental Photos and Description

$195-$250 for lower level, $350-$369 for 2 levels. (See Deborah's Guesthouses)

This restored general store is a luxurious oasis. The sky-high ceiling, bronze detailing and brand new kitchen, dining, and living space is sure to help you relax and rejuvenate!

With 3 bedrooms and 2 full baths, this home is perfect for 6-8 adults plus children, with its 2000 square foot downstairs apartment.

(Add the Upstairs Apartment, and comfortably fit 22-23 guests in 6 bedrooms with 4 full baths.)

It's like renting two whole houses, with an adjoining (lockable) door at the base of the stairs! Perfect for groups who want to share, but still have privacy.

(Upstairs remains unoccupied and locked, unless also rented by the downstairs guests.)

Rate: $195 per night (main floor) ($250 Memorial weekend to Labor Day) Sleeps 10-11

Rent the whole building for $350/night ($369/night during high season) (Upstairs AND Downstairs $350-$369/night, 4000 sq. ft. Sleeps 22-23. *Simply book the downstairs online, and include a note that you want the Upstairs as well. Or request a quote...)

Take a step into this once thriving General Store and be amazed by the original elevator that once brought goods from the basement storage up to the store level. Though not functioning anymore, this historic architectural element has been frozen in time during the latest remodel.

About Deborah

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 thoughtful...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 general store...

Perfect

This home is clean, decorated beautifully and had exactly what we needed for a relaxing time for our two families. Owner is prompt with communicating. Would book this home again. Already recommended to friends.

Best Stay Ever!

  • 5 of 5

We had a group of 14 visiting the Ark of encounter and Creation museum. We really enjoyed our stay. The pictures on the website don't do any justice. The house is really spacious and there is a tv in every room with Netflix. For cleanliness, we give 10/10. No one had anything to complain about. Deborah was very fast with her response and questions. We are so glad that we chose this place. Will defintley recommend this place to our friends and family.

Thank you!

A wonderful experience

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at the General Store was such a great experience - so spacious, beautiful and clean! The proximity to the Creation Museum and even to the ark for our 2 day stay was perfect. We enjoyed the pizza at the local Petersburg Pantry....delicious! We would definitely recommend it to anyone. Would love to return sometime with an even bigger group and use the upstairs as well as the main floor!

Better than the pictures

  • 5 of 5

One of the best places we have ever stayed! Comfy beds, linens and pillows. Plenty of room to stretch out and relax. (We were two unrelated couples touring the Ark) Stroll through the town and you will be greeted by friendly neighbors willing to help with your every need. The Ohio River is a stone's throw away and we fell in love with the town. This is high end New York in a country setting. You will not be disappointed booking this property. Squeaky clean!!!!

Beautiful and Relaxing

  • 5 of 5

The General Store is quite the surprise when you step through the door! I was not expecting to find such a beautifully decorated transformed General Store! The high ceilings added such a unique and charming feel to this rental. Everything we needed was provided and the appliances and furnishings were very, very nice. Beds were very comfortable and we loved the open concept of the kitchen/living room. We were part of another group staying at another rental so we did not really cook in this rental, but the kitchen was beautiful. Was a very fun, relaxing place to stay!

Beautiful Gem!

  • 5 of 5

This place is over the top! We have stayed in many VRBOs, B&Bs and AirBNBs... this home is immaculate, cozy and comfortable. Deborah was most helpful in making arrangements as our numbers changed several times, always getting back with a prompt reply. Also, when we tripped a breaker (don't recommend two hairdryers going at the same time in downstair bedrooms lol!), Wanda came right over and remedied the situation :) Our group of five adults found this a refuge after full days of Ark Encounter, Creation Museum, BB Dinner Cruise and C.S. Lewis "The Reluctant Convert" show and lots of sightseeing... even cooking dinner at home several nights. We feel so blessed to have found such a gem! Would highly recommend to anyone that wants something above and beyond just another "hotel" experience that can accommodate a small group to a large number being able to stay at the same location. Thanks again, Deborah and Wanda... from your Texas guests <3
