This charming private home overlooking the woods is ideal for relaxing with your family after a day of exploring the zoo, biking the trails, or enjoying the sights of Cincinnati. Walk to the beautiful 700+ acre park nearby. Ride the ferry across the Ohio River. Let your children run in the fenced in backyard while you watch from the deck. When night falls, make s’mores in the fire pit on the patio. Once the day is done, tuck the kids into matching beds in the renovated attic with skylight.

The space
A home located in the small historic river town right across the Ohio River from downtown Cincinnati (about a ten minute drive) means you can enjoy everything the city has to offer during the day and return to a quiet neighborhood with none of the city bustle at night. We are also ideally located for a stay that includes a visit to the Ark and the Creation Museum (13 miles/17 minute drive from the Creation Museum) and Perfect North Slopes (less than 30 minute drive) for a day of skiing.

Situated on a quiet, one way street, the porch, deck and patio give lots of options to enjoy the outdoors, while indoors, the newly renovated kitchen with stainless steel appliances and marble countertops and a tiled bathroom with shower seat are top of the line. The living room features a deep couch with soft pillows and throws and a new 58 inch SmartTV. Super soft bedding and a comfortable mattress in the master bedroom and Kentucky-themed artwork throughout the house and more all make this home a delightful and comfortable stay.

As parents ourselves, we understand the challenges of traveling with children and want to do all we can to make your stay easier. The house has outlet covers, kid-friendly dinnerware (as well as fancy dishes), a pack-n-play, baby monitor, booster seat and games, and toys and books for all ages.

There are stairs to enter the house, which sits on a hill, and stairs to the 2nd bedroom. The 2nd bedroom with two twin beds is accessed through the master bedroom.

An office area is also on the second floor, complete with desk, office chair, lamp and power cord. The porch is super cute with a hanging bed swing and bistro table.

Coffee/tea station is provided.

Guest access
The entire house and yard are available for guest use. The first and second floors have been newly renovated. The basement is next!

Ludlow, Kentucky, United States

Love history? Our town has a unique story to tell. The front porch overlooks the former site of one of Cincinnati’s major attractions. The Lagoon Amusement Park, which featured a (now gone) lake with five islands, midway and rides and motorcycle races up until 1917 has a rich and intriguing history.

Kentucky has been our home for almost 30 years. We have raised our children here and are always happy to share the southern hospitality we have experienced with our guests. We value families, which is why we have worked to make our home a haven for those with children. We remember how much we appreciated finding a place to stay where our three boys could run wild and not break anything, a place that is safe, a place stocked with toys, books and games and right next to a park. This home is our way of acknowledging the hard work of parenting and hopefully offering a bit of respite. We also value marriages (we’ve been married for 32 years) and have made sure our home is a cozy sanctuary for two. Our sons are now all grown and married, so we have time and attention to lavish on our guests.
