About Tara Bentley
Greetings! I'm the mother of two girls, both homeschool graduates. The Creation Museum has played a big part in our lives over the years and our oldest daughter was married there in 2013! We enjoy hosting families as they come together from different parts of the country to visit the museum and spend time together. I look forward to helping you make your stay in Petersburg a cherished memory for your own family! ~ Tara
Tara Bentley purchased this House in 2014
Why Tara Bentley chose Petersburg
This spacious and historic home is the perfect resting spot for your family's visit to the Creation Museum.
What makes this House unique
This quaint, historic house was once the home to Captain Perry McNeely and his family. The Captain and his wife had 12 children and all four boys went on to be Captains as well. Their home faces the beautiful Ohio River and you can imagine wifey and the children watching the river for Captain to return home. You family will love spending time together in this home. With open space flowing between the living room, dining room, and nook space… you'll have room to gather together for meals, games and late night conversations. The loft room is perfect for children to play together!

Great home for muli-family vacations to visit the Creation Museum and Ark Encounter.
This place was perfect for us as our family along with Grandparents and cousins visited the Creation Museum (10 minute drive) and Ark Encounter (1 hour). Lots of beds and lots of room for everyone to spread out and enjoy. There were 12 of us and there was room to spare! Beds were comfortable and clean, the house's enclosed yard was great for the kids to run around. We enjoyed the small town feel and walking to the local pantry for ice cream. Tara was fantastic. We had the power go out one night due to a storm and she brought us lanterns and even some fun lights for the kids. It turned out to be their favorite night of the 5 nights we stayed. We definitely will be back the next time we visit the parks.
Thank you for your review! We appreciate you picking our home for your visit. I love hearing that the kids enjoyed the lights.
What a wonderful memory for you all!
Wonderful, clean, everything we wanted and more.
We had 16 people from our Church in Alabama go to see The Ark Encounter and Creation Museum. We stayed 3 nights and had a great time. Love the community around. The river right across the street was a wonderful view each morning. We visited the Petersburg Baptist Church on Sunday and we were welcomed like old friends. One of the children with us wants to "Live in this house forever". I hope to return one day and will definitely be staying here again if it's available. Felt just like a Home away from Home. Couldn't have asked for a better experience. Thank you for opening your home to us.
Great place to stay for the Creation Museum and Ark!
Very nice place, plenty of beds to sleep in and plenty of sitting areas to spread out after a day of exploring. We would stay here again!
Great place for our Family of 13
The Captain's Quarters worked great for us and our extended Family. Plenty of beds and tables and chairs. We appreciated having a kitchen where we did breakfast and dinners together. And it was so great to be all together. The history of the house and the one next door- fascinating! And the view of the Ohio River is wonderful.
We also give 5 stars to the Ark Encounter and the Creation Museum!! 2 Must-Sees!!
Excellent house for family get together!
We had a great time at this house! Everything we needed was included and that was so appreciated. The house was big enough for three families and my grandchildren. We were very comfortable and had a great time. Thanks for your hospitality!
Great house! Great location! Perfectly quaint town!
We are a family of 6 and we vacationed with a family of 7. This house was perfect for us and we could have comfortably fit another family as well! That’s not easy to do with our bunch :) They provided toilet paper, paper towels, laundry soap, dishwasher soap, plenty of towels, and many more items that I have always had to bring with me to other places! We replaced what we used because we were so appreciative! Wonderful yard for the kids to play in, electric grill to use, beautiful view of the Ohio River at sunset. Less than an hour from The Ark Encounter, right down the road from the Creation Museum, and less than an hour from Cincinnati Zoo, the location can’t be beat! Highly recommend this house to any large family or group wanting to visit the area.
Also, we had an issue with the air conditioning late at night and told the owners no rush, they had someone there first thing the next morning and issue resolved, even on a Sunday!! Perfectly wonderful owner, perfectly wonderful vacation! Thank you again!
