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.

we really enjoyed our stay. the home had a warm feeling the minute you walked in, and it had everything needed to make your stay enjoyable. the owners went out of their way to make you feel at home. this was a special trip for us, we was taking my mom and dad to creation museum and art encounter. i picked this place due to my mom can only sleep in a recliner and she was very comfortable. thanks for making this such a special time for our family, being able to be together.

Perfect place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

This cottage looks small on the outside but is spacious on the inside. Very charming and cozy. It is just minutes away from the Creation Museum so we were able to come "home" for lunch and then go back. It is also only 45 minutes from the Ark Encounter so that was great for our trip too. We had supper at the little Pantry across town and the food was great and the people were very friendly.

The tub drains a little slow but we have a big family and never ran out of hot water.

We would highly recommend staying at this sweet little house with the big rooms!

Charming, Clean and Convenient to the Creation Museum.

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at Mary's house which is very clean, charming and within a few miles of the Creation Museum (less than fifteen minutes from Petersburg).

Her personal touches were appreciated including a bag of candy for us to pass out to all those trick or treat guests who stopped by. Thank you Mary.

The kitchen has everything we needed for our two day stay and we found chatting with her friendly neighbors both fun and helpful as they recommended a great place for dinner about fifteen minutes away.

Having only one bathroom for four people was somewhat of a challenge however it was well equipped and again, very clean. Although she is prepared to sleep up to eleven guests we feel four would be the maximum for convenience.

The Ark Encounter was about 45 minutes away and was our number one reason for coming to Kentucky. You will not be disappointed.
