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