'My Old Kentucky Home' is a charming 100+ year old cottage in historic Williamstown, Kentucky. Williamstown is home to the Ark Encounter and is approximately 45 minutes from the Creation Museum in Petersburg, Kentucky. Although we offer a DVD library, games and children's book assortment, and wireless internet, our goal in offering our cottage to you is that your family will come here and actually INTERACT as a family! WE PURPOSELY DO NOT OFFER CABLE OR BROADCAST TELEVISION. If you're looking for mindless entertainment so your family can ignore one another, PLEASE LOOK ELSEWHERE! Our Old Kentucky Home is set up to be your family retreat for study and devotions, intimate but comfortable togetherness, and creative play both indoors and out. Your little ones will love the "Ark Room" upstairs with stuffed animals, original artwork, and bedding for a crew of 8! Our cottage was described by a recent guest as "Overtly Christian". We accept that as a high compliment. We sincerely hope that you enjoy your stay, but more than that... we pray that your family is refreshed and encouraged through your visit here!
