  • Great place


    We enjoyed our stay very much. We hated leaving. The house was beautiful,very clean. We didn't get to meet the owners , but we messaged and Judy was very nice. She had even messaged just to say she hoped we had a good evening and if we needed anything to just ask. I wish we could have met her in person. We were also greeted with flowers and a cake for our Anniversary which was a pleasant surprise.. When we got back from our outings it was just so nice to sit and relax , look at the view around us, listen to the birds etc. We will most definitely if ever that way again want to stay at Valerie's place. It is the kind of house I dream of having someday. Nice and cozy and in the country.

    Thank You to Judy and Mark

  • Excellent home away from home!


    We were in Northern Kentucky specifically for the Creation Museum and Ark Encounter. This location was about 25 minutes away from Ark and 40 minutes from Creation. Both locations are fantastic, and our teenagers said they were 100% worth the 12-hr drive from Central Kansas. We also visited the Newport Aquarium in Newport KY.

    This 2-bd 1-ba house out in the country is the perfect place to stay. It's clean and comfortable. What more could you ask for?!

    We had a bit of car trouble while in the area. The owners were so kind to pick us up. They gave my family a ride back to the house and gave me a ride to the parts store 30-min away. You cannot ask for better hosts.

  • A nice little house to relax and enjoy nature


    The house was very clean and well supplied, comfortable for 3-4 people. We had a relaxing time sitting outside in the morning and at night.

    It is in a perfect location either to the Ark or the Creation Museum.
