Overview

About the property

$225-$250 for lower level, $380-$405 for 2 levels. (See Deborah's Guesthouses)

This restored general store is a luxurious oasis. The sky-high ceiling, bronze detailing and brand new kitchen, dining, and living space is sure to help you relax and rejuvenate!

With 3 bedrooms and 2 full baths, this home is perfect for 6-8 adults plus children, with its 2000 square foot downstairs apartment.

(Add the Upstairs Apartment, and comfortably fit 22-23 guests in 6 bedrooms with 4 full baths.)

It's like renting two whole houses, with an adjoining (lockable) door at the base of the stairs! Perfect for groups who want to share, but still have privacy.

(Upstairs remains unoccupied and locked, unless also rented by the downstairs guests.)

Rate: $225 per night (main floor) ($250 Memorial weekend to Labor Day) Sleeps 10-11

Rent the whole building for $380/night ($405/night during high season) Sleeps 22-23. *Simply book the downstairs online, and include a note that you want the Upstairs as well. Or request a quote...)

Take a step into this once thriving General Store and be amazed by the original elevator that once brought goods from the basement storage up to the store level. Though not functioning anymore, this historic architectural element has been frozen in time during the latest remodel.

About Deborah

Originally from the St. Louis area, I lived in Petersburg from 1998 to 2013. The first time I drove into town looking for a home to buy, the 'Old Petersburg Operahouse' was for sale. Having majored in music many years ago, the old building sent out a siren call for me to buy it! I've been buying and rehabbing in town ever since. In 2011 I opened The Cottage for vacationers. It was a very slow start, and I wondered if it had been the right decision. But soon the Creation Museum guests started arriving--I love my guests! What a joy to interact with these Christian families (many with lots of children :), who are kind and thoughtful...and take care of my home! It was obvious right away that a vacation home offers a much-needed alternative to hotel rooms...most of which cannot accommodate the larger families. Also, the ability to cook your own meals instead of eating out can save money. (And doing a little laundry during vacation can rescue you from a mountain of clothes when you get home...;-) I hope you enjoy the adventure of staying in this historic general store...

Beautiful place in a small town

  • 5 of 5

This is a great place to stay if you have a large family or group. We used both the upstairs and downstairs for our extended family of 21 and there was room for all without feeling crowded. It was nice to have use of both kitchens as we have some kids with special food needs. We visited the Creation Museum (10 minutes away) and the Ark Encounter (45 minutes away) while we were there and this was just the perfect location. If you plan to be eating out, you have to drive about 20 minutes in any direction to get to restaurants but we made use of the kitchen and ate from there. The place has been renovated beautifully and it was perfect for what we needed. Deborah is great to work with and responded very quickly to my inquiries.

Roomy super clean home

We loved this beautifully renovated property. The kitchen was well stocked with everything in working order. The town of Petersburg is a quaint lovely location. We enjoyed our evening walks down to the river and around the town. We would love to come back.

Wonderful getaway!

  • 5 of 5

The General Store accommodated our group of 21 perfectly. The pictures don't do it justice....the rooms are much larger than they appear in the pictures. Thanks to Deborah and housekeeping staff!!!

My youth group loved it!!!

  • 5 of 5

Very clean, beautifully decorated, spacious, and welcoming. We stayed here while visiting the Creation Museum and the Ark Encounter. When I asked some of the kids what was one of the things they like best about our trip- they said staying in the house (store). Would highly recommend. :)
