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!

The house was fantastic. Nice big old house. It was wonderful for our large group (6 adults and 7 children). We had an amazing week visiting the Ark Encounter and the creation museum. Thank you so much for making the happen!

Spacious historic home. Great for large families.

  • 5 of 5

Tara gave clear instructions regarding check-in and check-out. Friendly notes posted around the home were helpful. The rooms were larger than they appeared in the photos. This property makes a great place to stay for larger families wanting to enjoy the Creation Museum and the Ark Encounter.

Beautiful Home!

  • 5 of 5

This was perfect for our senior class trip. We had the perfect amount of space. The character and charm of the home was an added bonus as we got to share history with our students. The area is quiet. It is located very close to the Creation Museum. The Ark Encounter wasn't that far away. We highly recommend this location! Thank you for a wonderful stay!
