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 even got 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!

Beautiful, Clean, Spacious, Well-stocked Home. We Loved It!

  • 5 of 5

Seriously, this place was better than we expected. The layout is very nice and spacious. We had 12 adults and 5 children there and it was plenty of room for everybody. We stayed for 4 nights and did most of our cooking at the house. The kitchen had everything we needed for this much cooking. Very impressed with how well stocked the house was. AC worked really well and we were able to keep the house at a very nice temperature. The town of Petersburg is quaint, classic rural town of mid-America. We enjoyed walks to the river and times at the little park. Will definitely be recommending to other families and hope to be back again. Thanks Again!

Great home for our needs

  • 5 of 5

We appreciated the amount of room available to us as we had 13 family members. Kitchen and dining area worked great for feeding all of us. Grandkids loved running up and down the two staircases. Would have appreciated better quality beds and the grass was long and un-mowed so we could not use our yard games we had brought along.

Grand house in a little river town.

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed the restoration done to this amazing house, especially the high ceilings. It was well appointed and we appreciated having linens and towels provided. Being very close to the Creation Museum was a plus and I personally enjoyed the winding road to Petersburg. (I wish I were on my motorcycle.) There were plenty of activities for the little ones and good books available to read, although we didn't have time to do so. I would certainly recommend this stay to anyone who plans on visiting the Creation Museum or the Arc Encounter.

Home away from home!!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this welcoming house for 5 nights while we visited Creation Museum (10 minutes away) and Ark Experience(45 minutes away). We travelled from Houston, Delaware and Philadelphia and met here for a family vacation. This house fit 5 adults and 6 children very comfortably with room to spare. The house is well kept, quite clean and is well stocked with anything you could need. There is a park a walking distance where we took the kids to. There is a convenience store in this small town but for major shopping or gas, I recommend shopping before you exit the highway. Everything is across the river in Indiana (last exit before you cross Ohio river into Kentucky), or a few exits after you get into Kentucky. Shop anywhere before you get to exit 11.

We liked that Tara was responsive but she gave us our space to enjoy a quiet vacation. This house is so welcoming and comfortable, the beds are so comfortable, the AC works well. The house has all modern amenities yet maintains it's historic charm.

I would definitely stay at this house again if I was in the area. I recommend to bring bug spray because there is a lot of mosquitos in the evening.

Thank you Tara for letting us enjoy A.B Parker house!! We had a great time.
