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 was 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!

Why Tara Bentley chose Kentucky

This spacious and historic home is the perfect resting spot for your family's visit to the Creation Museum.

What makes this house unique

This quaint, historic house was once the home to Captain Perry McNeely and his family. The Captain and his wife had 12 children and all four boys went on to be Captains as well. Their home faces the beautiful Ohio River and you can imagine wifey and the children watching the river for Captain to return home. You family will love spending time together in this home. With open space flowing between the living room, dining room, and nook space… you'll have room to gather together for meals, games and late night conversations. The loft room is perfect for children to play together!

Very comfortable for a large group!

  • 5 of 5

The house was nice to come "home" to after a day out doing stuff. It was wonderful having a full kitchen and so much dining space. The beds were comfortable. The living room was great for relaxing in the evening. We loved the porch. And having the river right across the street not only made for a nice view, but was fun to go down to the river. The kids/teens all loved the loft room. Having only 2 bathrooms and 1 shower was fine, you just have to know that ahead of time. I would suggest this place to any friends coming to the area.

House was great and plenty of room for our youth.

  • 5 of 5

House was clean with plenty of beds for 14 on our trip with beds to spare. Plenty of seating. Youth loved playing volleyball outside and going to river. Adults enjoyed sitting on porch visiting. The weather was great. We went to the Creation Museum and The Ark and had a wonderful trip. We would definitely stay at the Captians Quarters again.

Neat place to stay and soak in a little history and atmosphere. The grandchildren loved the toys that we're there. I lived the back porch and it's swing!

Plenty of room for our family of 10. Enjoyed the history of the house. The view of the river, and the tugboats pushing barges made it fun!

Very comfortable, quiet neighborhood , perfect for our needs

  • 5 of 5

We brought our church youth group, 18 people, to the Creation Museum and The Ark and we all had a comfortable place to sleep. We had enough supplies including towels that last our entire stay. The kitchen was well supplied. Believe it or not we all took showers and never ran out of hot water!!! The neighborhood was friendly and enjoyed our afternoon walks. The community center, just around the corner, had a playground for the smaller kids. It was a quiet little town and when we told others where we were staying, everyone had something good to say about Petersburg. The house was very clean and Tara was extremely easy to work with. I would recommend this place to everyone and if we venture back again, we will stay here again. Try it ...you will be pleased.
