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!

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 place for a family reunion

  • 5 of 5

Enjoyed staying here for our family reunion. We had 10 people and had more than enough room for our family. Excellent proximity to the Creation Museum and not far from the Ark Encounter.

Great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

The house had plenty of room and lots of character. It was close to everything in Cincinnati we went to and closer than we'd planed on to the Ark Experience. Our family had six adults and three small kids and never felt on top of each other. Great experience and would recommend it to anyone.

Comfortable, relaxing home

  • 4 of 5

We recently enjoyed a two night stay in the Captain's Quarters. The kitchen is well stocked and had everything we needed. We used the large electric grill on the back porch to make a fabulous dinner one night. The house is certainly "off the beaten path" but the little town is charming and the back porch a great place to spend the evening enjoying the bird songs.

Captain’s Quarters is full of charm and character!

  • 5 of 5

Our life group of 12 adults enjoyed our stay at Captain’s Quarters while visiting the Creation Museum and Ark Encounter, both of which were amazing. Petersburg is a small, quiet, friendly neighborhood. We loved watching the children playing and riding bikes. The house was very charming, comfortable, and had everything we needed. Beautiful view of the Ohio River. (There was no ice maker so you might want to bring a bag of ice.)

Wonderful Trip!

  • 5 of 5

The house was clean and spacious! We loved the improvements from last year! The downstairs tub bathroom got a stand-up shower, and the Eagle's next got an air conditioner! Wow! Thank you. Having stayed there 3 times now, we appreciate you taking our suggestions.

It was a great time.
