About Pamala Smith

I am originally from a small town in Kansas called Colwich. I moved to Cincinnati, Ohio in 1988. After about 10 years of living 10 minutes from downtown Cincinnati. I moved to Lebanon, Ohio where I discovered a true love of the small town life once again. I discovered a new love for the History and Historic attributes of Lebanon. I created Simplify to allow guest to share in Lebanon cuteness.

In my spare time I am a teacher and a decorator. I love being creative and both these loves allow that. I also enjoy the outdoors. Boating, camping, hiking, exploring, exercising and good health.

Pamala Smith purchased this apartment in 2011

Why Pamala Smith chose Lebanon

I quickly fell in love with the small town life here. Historical buildings, the feel of community at every corner, quant places to shop and eat at everywhere. I wanted to share it with the world. Henceforth came my idea to create Simplify Rental. A place where families can come together for a short or long stay with the convenience of home while exploring the wonderful town of Lebanon, Ohio.

What makes this apartment unique

Simplify was designed with the comfort and warmth or home in mind. The entire floor was newly renovated in 2012 from the flooring to the lighting. Creating a cozy, fun, warm, private and safe environment for my guests was my goal. Families, loved ones, generations, or a significant other can all find something they enjoy at Simplify. My expectations of this place is for it to bring joy to you as you stay and discover my wonderful little town in the process.

7 of us had the opportunity to stay here for a fun girls night out. As soon as we walked upstairs we knew we made the right decision. So cozy, but lots of room to have fun. The decorating was so cute! The beds were very comfortable too.....even the couch! Convenient for walking to the shops and restaurants. We are already making plans for another girls night out!

Perfect family getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at Simplify! My family of 4 was comfortable and did not have any issues. We parked for free around the corner, we had dinner at Vilaggio’s (a pizza place right next to Simplify) and enjoyed frozen yogurt at Whit’s! We would love to come back and go shopping and visit the Lebanon Train Station! There was so much within walking distance! My kids loved all the windows at Simplify, and my husband enjoyed the coffee maker and coffee! The AC works great and the kids even found a few toys and games in a closet! The down sides - it is on the 3rd floor and the 1st staircase is a little steep and there were a bunch of trucks outside early each morning (we assume they were preparing for the upcoming music festival). Overall - great place! We felt safe walking around the town and it was only about 15 minutes to Kings Island!! 🙂?

A lovely apt / flat that is uniquely decorated with rimsicallity and love!

  • 5 of 5

We were in town for my niece's graduation and also enjoyed our time exploring the quaint town of Lebanon as well. My grandsons especially enjoyed the train depot! Our stay was very comfortable and everything we were looking for. Pamela was very easy to communicate with before, during, and after our stay. I would highly recommend staying here. You won't be disappointed!!

Best Place To Stay in Lebanon, Ohio

  • 5 of 5

We visit the Lebanon area every year, but normally stay in a hotel. We decided we wanted something different this year and are so happy we did. We were very excited about staying in a 200+ year-old building, and from the moment we opened the door of Simplify and saw the beautiful apartment that Pamala has created, we were delighted! She has added so many personal touches and we felt right at home! We had absolutely everything we needed to have a wonderful stay. I didn’t want to leave!

Pamala’s communications with us were always prompt and helpful. . All of our questions were answered and she was able to suggest many wonderful and fun places in the area to visit. I absolutely loved staying at Simplify and can’t wait for our next visit!

Spacious, charming and a great location in downtown Lebanon.

Our hostess was very accommodating to our needs and unobtrusive.

A great space for our family to hang out together. The views of Lebanon from this apt. were wonderful.

Simplify is just 8 miles form Paramount Kings Island and The Beach water Park. Both are great attractions. Lebanon, Ohio is a quant little town with lots of little shops, pubs and cafes. All are walking distance from Simplify.

Lebanon is an Historic town with lots of great history including the famous Golden Lamb where Woody Harrison the actor once worked as a teenager and the movie 'Harper Valley PTA' movie took place at Berry middle school right here in town as well as 'The Christmas Spirit' movie from Hallmark was shot right on our little corner of Mulberry and Mechanic.

Lots of antique shopping, a large flee market and a 50 miles walking track. During your stay here you can travel just 40 minutes North to Dayton, Ohio or 40 minutes South to Cincinnati, Ohio. Both cities have much to offer.

Lebanon, Ohio has some of the best festivals around. Just to name a few is The Country Music Festival, The Blues festival, The Apple festival and the Carriage Parade. All of these festivals can be viewed from inside the windows of Simplify. The perfect location warm or cold to enjoy the festivals and then walk up to your home away from home to put your feet up for a bit only to rejoin them again as much as you wish. Food music and lots of shopping at your finger tips.

My favorite thing about Lebanon is all the wonderful places to stop and grab a bite to eat, a coffee, a smoothie or an ice cream. We even have a chocolate factory and a candy shop within walking distance from Simplify.

Lebanon, Ohio is a Mom and Pops kind of place with lots to explore and do. A map with many location will be conveniently in place for you to look at during your stay at Simplify to help you on your way to a wonderful time.
