Beautiful and Historic!

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying at the loft! We were in town for a wedding, and it was perfect. It is incredibly well decorated, and the kitchen and bathroom have lots of supplies. We loved the back patio as well as the drinks and food in the brewery downstairs. I would just recommend adding a full length mirror to the space somewhere. Thanks for a great stay!

Owner's Response: So happy to hear you enjoyed your stay & your time in Petersburg! We usually keep the full length mirror in the closet, but we’ll get that replaced if it has gone missing. Thanks for pointing that out. Come back and stay again any time! Thanks!

Loved the place!!

This was a unique accommodation and we loved it! Wish we had more than one night! Just a bit pricey with all the fees.

Owner's Response: Hi Amber - So happy to hear you loved the loft! We do keep our rates very low so that lots of people can experience Petersburg and the loft. We charge a flat rate of $100, $3 in lodging tax, and a $25 housekeeping fee (our actual cost). Unfortunately, we can't control any additional fees that you may have been charged since you used a booking site to make your reservation. We think $103/night is a great deal for a brand new space that accommodates a good sized group and is very well stocked & we hope you'll consider visiting again! Thanks for taking the time to leave a review!

Great Place...

Based on the reviews, we had pretty high expectations of The Loft. Our expectations were met and exceeded. What a cool place! We are already planning to stay here again in the future. We couldn’t recommend this property any higher. It’s fantastic!
