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. 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.

Wonderful escape for teachers who needed a breakout session! We visit often! Cozy and warm! Lots to do in the area but we chose to stay inside and play games, watch Netflix and cook! It was wonderful:)
Perfect way to start 2020
Excellent experience. Took the family to Kings Island for New Year's eve celebration and started for couple of days after. We loved the decoration of this property and the book / notebook Pamala (the owner) has explaining how she transformed this property. Her flexibility in accommodating our check in time were greatly appreciated! Great job, looking forward to booking this again if our future plans take us near that area.
Great location and communicative property manager but cleanliness is an issue
The property is in a great location and Lebanon is a lovely little town for a nice relaxing day. I chose this property for the location and because of the overwhelming positive reviews. It is an older property so we took that into account. However, when we arrived, it was clear that the property only gets a cursory wipe down between guests. It was grubby enough that we were confused by the positive reviews and that noone previously mentioned the cleanliness. There were several signs of no deep cleaning; burnt on food around the stove burners, built up dirty fingerprints around door handles, built up dust on top of the Keurig machine, dusty baseboards and picture frames, the bedding smelled like it needed to be washed, and stains on the couch. There were even coffee grounds from the previous tenant in the sink. The property has potential if it gets a deep, deep cleaning.
Simplify takes their cleanliness very importantly and has done so for the past 7 years. This review is hard to understand as many of the complaints just don't match the facts.
This property is so close to so many cute stores and restaurants. Will stay here again if we get back this way.
Wonderful Small Town Feel
Great rental environment! It's like a second home. I even enjoyed looking at the provided Visit Ohio magazine for future ideas. I will continue to visit this property. Very Much enjoyed the Greenhouse Cafe across the street!
Great weekend getaway in an adorable town!
Truly a home away from home! Loved it!
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.
