About Mary Hitzfield

My husband Dan and I live in Petersburg with our two children and choose to make this quiet little town our home. This is a great advantage to our customers for us to be so close. We can easily help you out with any of your needs or questions. We reside in the “Berkshire house” which was constructed around 1928 form the Brick of the old distillery building. Dan works as a firefighter and I am a Librarian. Dan’s family has lived in Petersburg for 5 generations, so needless to say we are vested in our community. When traveling ourselves, we often stay in a vacation rental. We find this to be the best and most affordable choice for our family and we think that you will too. So we hope to welcome you to our community. Please feel free to contact us with any questions.

Why Mary Hitzfield chose Petersburg

Great location for visiting Ark Encounter and Creation Museum. Wonderful place to walk around town and along the river. This is one of the few houses in Petersburg that has a large yard for children to play.

Very happy with the house. Everything you would want or need for an enjoyable stay. We really enjoyed the fire pit and grill. Would stay again if in the area.

"Parlor House" A Home away from home!!!

  • 5 of 5

The house was extremely clean and well kept. It had everything we needed from linens, towels, to paper towels and toilet paper. The property is large with a gas grill and fire pit. Plenty of outdoor seating. Very cozy house that we all enjoyed!!!! We came to enjoy the Creation Museum and Ark Encounter but ended up enjoying the community park and well as walking around the town looking at the historic homes there. Enjoyed the dirt road down to the boat ramp access to the Ohio River. Skipped rocks and collected a few to bring home as memories.

Perfect landing spot!

  • 5 of 5

Like many others, we chose this property based on two things: how many it could sleep and proximity to the Ark/Creation Museum. It was perfect for us on both of those accounts. But it also had fun surprises up its sleeve -- a yard with the perfect climbing tree for my kids at the end of some long travel days, as well as access to many other fun lesser-known sights. For those traveling to see the Ark/Creation Museum -- make sure you check out other fun spots as well: we enjoyed Big Bone Lick State Park (KY) as well as stopping for bottles of pops and candy at Rabbit Hash (KY), the Boone County Barn Quilt Trail (KY), and the greater Cincinnati area, where we ate at The Schoolhouse Restaurant in Camp Dennison (OH), and we enjoyed the Cincinnati Art Museum (free admission) as well as driving downtown to see the "Toy Heritage" mural (Kenner Toys from 1970s/80s). We only had 2 full days to sightsee all of the above, but we packed it in and had a blast. Thanks again for a wonderful stay, Mary!

Quaint little home in historic Petersburg

  • 5 of 5

The Parlor house was comfortable and provided a home away from home experience, while visiting the Creation Museum and Ark Encounter. The kitchen was well-equipped with everything you needed to prepare a family meal. Patio was available for lounging / meals outside if you prefer. The air conditioning was much appreciated.
