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! ~ Tara

Why Tara Bentley chose Petersburg
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!

This was one of my favorite places I have ever stayed!! It was historic and old and yet super clean and comfortable! There was everything we needed and our kids had a BLAST exploring and playing there. Thanks!!
Great place when visiting the Creation Museum and Ark Encounter
We had a great time! The house was just right for our youth group of 15. We had one minor problem and the homeowners took care of it immediately. It was a pleasure to get to meet them. It's close to the Creation Museum and Ark Encounter. We enjoyed cooking some of our meals there, so that really cut down on the cost of our trip. The kitchen was well equipped for our needs. We would definitely recommend this house.
Attentive to our Guests' needs
Unexpectedly evacuating from Florida due to a hurricane, our hosts were extremely attentive to our needs, and quickly responded to all of our on-site requests. Having such courteous and timely assistance made our original purpose - providing lodging for extended family and international friends attending our daughter's wedding- a truly trouble free event. We also noticed your earlier response to other guests comments; adding an additional a/c unit for the upstairs, and surprising us by having added a walk-in shower to the bathroom which your website previously showed ohly the classic claw-foot bathtub. Thank you for your great customer service.
It was nice to stay in one place as opposed to multiple hotel rooms. We found it to be clean and roomy!
We enjoyed our stay at Captain's Quarters. For our family configuration it worked out perfectly. We enjoyed watching the barges on the river & also the quiet & unique town of Petersburg. Nice to walk & jog in b/c almost no traffic. The beds we used (8) were very comfortable & we appreciated the convenient hooks and shelves (not adequate in many rentals). Kitchen was well equipped & there was plenty of table space for meals, games & crafts. We all (2 children, 3 adults & 3 seniors) enjoyed the Creation Museum & Ark Encounter and pleasant down time at the Captain's Quarters in Petersburg. Thanks much.
Great house! Contact person eas very easy to work with. Tara went beyond the call of duty to make sure our stay was pleasent.
