About Ted Dahmus

My name is Ted Dahmus, I am the General Manager and Hospitality Point of Contact. We are a full service management and real estate enterprise operating out of Cincinnati, OH. PetermannvilleUSA was founded in 2015, with the purchase of this half a million dollar property, sitting in arguable the nicest cove across the lake. As a visitor since Age 18, ten years of trips to this wonder was enough for me to finally save up and pull the trigger! Our portfolio includes this property, along with commercial and residential sites in Cincinnati, OH. We take pride in our excellent service, and always tell visitors and potential clients to reach out to our website, for reviews and testimonies before renting with us. We look forward to serving you! Visit us at for more detail. We can also be found at if you need more pictures to make the choice right! Cheers!

Ted Dahmus purchased this house in 2015

Why Ted Dahmus chose Big Creek

It stands out, not only on the lake, but with a "contemporary" theme- usually overlooked when designing lake homes, (typical, cabin style, log home, etc)

The view. The view is by far- the best feature this home brings to any guests lucky enough to enjoy

The area- Big Creek. No over populated party throwers over here, well, we do still party but not like the locals who drive around carelessly, as you will see more towards down the lake. All these homes are privately owned, and built/crafted like real homes- not rentals. The neighbors are here all year long, opposed to some other areas where they seasonally come and enjoy. Big Creek= Best

What makes this house unique

Easy Walk to the boats/dock, the dock also has a lift with 2 slips (depending on party size you have the ability to house 2 boats on the property during your stay with us. Luxury Living and Convenience; the view is the best on the lake! We will try and do anything and everything we can to make sure you enjoy your stay with us. Have a question? Just ask, I am here to help. The number one goal is to make sure we have your hard earned money in trusted hands for your vacation experience, and to represent the lake the best we can. Good Luck with your search and let us know if you need anything.

We had a fun week here with family. Amazing view from the deck. It was unseasonably cool so when we woke up in the morning we sat on the deck and watched the fog lift and gradually reveal the lake with mist rising up from the water. Stunning! As it warmed up we were able to get out and enjoy the boat. Great area to ski/tube. We enjoyed the kayaks, hot tub and ping pong. My husband brought a hammock and found the perfect spot to just relax. It is a very steep walk from the dock to the house. The water level dropped significantly while we were there but we had read about the timing for that. It did not diminish our use of the lake at all. As others have mentioned, no cell phone service (we have Verizon), but WIFI worked OK.

The kitchen is well stocked and drawers/cabinets are labeled. There is a large island and also a buffet counter which was fantastic for prepping & serving meals.

We had 5 adults so the bedroom situation worked for us. The third bedroom has a trundle bed which has been detached to make two separate twins. The bunk beds are in the loft/hallway so no privacy and open to any noise from downstairs.

Other than a few minor issues, this was an excellent choice for us and I would highly recommend booking this house. We also appreciated that our daughter could bring her two dogs. They seemed to pick up the relaxed vibe in this place and enjoyed the water and hanging on the deck as much as we did. We hope to come back again.

We stayed here for a long weekend for our first family vacation to Norris, and it did not disappoint. The house was immaculate.. extremely clean and updated. The kitchen was huge and they had every cabinet full of various dishes, pots and pans.. anything you could want or need. Maybe not a big deal to others, but we noticed the walls weren't thin either... while a few stayed up late watching TV or playing games in the living room, we were able to sleep in a bedroom upstairs without hearing much. The house is also dog friendly, so we were able to bring the whole family. We had a small fishing boat we kept on the dock, but when we weren't using that, we were swimming off the dock. There's a ladder, making it easy to get in and out. The walk up and down to the dock is very steep, but manageable. We just limited our trips up and down. Ted was also very easy to work with!

Great place, well maintained, modern and clean, awesome view!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic time. Took the fam for a, family only, retreat. Spent some quality time boating, floating, eating and hanging out. Will definitely go back to Petermannville. Boat slip was sweet. My boat slipped right in there. Owner has taken great care to ensure a good time is had by all.
