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...

Beyond our expectations!

  • 5 of 5

We had a group of 4 families with 21 people total. Everyone loved the house. We had both levels and there was plenty of room for people to spread out. Our group was there for a family Conference at the Creation Museum and it was so nice to have a house so close. My only regret is that we were so busy with the conference, the museum, and the Ark that we didn't get to spend as much time at the house as we would have liked.

I would definitely stay at The General Store again. We had everything we needed and the place was so clean and welcoming. The experience we had was beyond our expectations! We absolutely loved it!

Best Rental Ever!

  • 5 of 5

This is my second time renting the General Store. Couldn't ask for a better place. Very clean and quiet. My grandsons didn't want to leave. Our entire family loved having all the space to relax. We went to the Newport Aquarium, Creation Museum and the Ark. All of these are just a 45 min drive or less. Deborah and her staff thought of everything you would need to make your stay enjoyable. My grandsons loved riding bikes around town and talking to the very friendly local residents. Highly recommend you visit and rent one of Deborah's guesthouses. I will rent again soon.

The General Store was beautiful inside and out.

  • 5 of 5

The high ceilings, open floor plan, freight elevator structure, and interior decoration were a joy to experience.

The General Store is perfectly located for access to the Creation Museum and Ark Encounter, and Petersburg is a beautiful little town along the river if you decide to get out for a walk.
