This is real comfort and relaxation. Get out the camera to capture the views from our 3 bedroom, 2 bath home with immense living room on the Ohio River boasting 2.2 acres, perfect for a large family or friends to gather or see the ARK ENCOUNTER.

Create lasting memories together and let your cares fade away. Have a family picnic on the lawn or lounge on the two huge decks. Fish on our private dock! Roast marshmallows at the fire pit or sip wine while watching falling stars on the upper deck.

The space
WE HAVE GAS!!! As of 5/14, the gas shortage effecting some Southeastern states is not effecting KY. If you are concerned message me for an update of our area.

- Ohio River views will take your breath away.
- Nearby parks and places to enjoy the outdoors hiking, boating, and sightseeing
- Sit on the deck watching the barges go by and discussing how much each boat must cost are some of our favorite pastimes.
- Charcoal grill/smoker
- Waterfront property with dock on the Ohio River
- 17ft canoe available

Warning!!! The CICADAS ARE COMING! If you have never experienced the “Brood X” cicada invasion it is pretty intense. They are everywhere, and I mean everywhere and the sound is quite loud. You will hardly be able to carry on a conversation outside and will hear their hum from inside. They may land on you or our decks. We cannot control Mother Nature and can’t provide refunds for them. Be warned!

As a family with three young children, we understand just how difficult it is to travel with all the things children need. The house has toys and books from toddler age to elementary. Additional items available for use are pack n plays, a single and double stroller, travel high chairs, a travel exersaucer, changing pad with cover, and a video baby monitor. If you need any of these items, please let us know in advance so that they can be set out and ready for you to use. Since many families do not need these items, we do not leave them out at all times.

Where you’ll be

Warsaw, Kentucky, United States

Warsaw is a small town but in a GREAT LOCATION: YOUR HOME AWAY FROM HOME! The town of Warsaw is small and walkable but is a "Retreat" of sorts--there are grocery stores and restaurants within minutes, but it is 20 miles away from major retail outlets and big box stores.

- Within an hour of Louisville, Cincinnati, and Lexington.
- Located between the ARK and Creation Museum--about 40 min drive to both.
- Celebrating? Just 7 miles away, you'll find the Belterra Casino and Golf Course as well as the Ridge Winery (one of many wineries with tasting rooms in the area.)
- Great restaurants and local establishments including Jewell’s on Main and the Sunset Grill
- Take a quick drive to historic Carrollton, KY or Madison, IN for a local festival or to find some antiques
- Old-fashioned ice cream at Shell’s in Vevay, IN (a favorite in our family! We highly recommend the Pralines and Cream.)
- Neeley Family distillery is a local place for Bourbon sampling.
- Deaton's market has a great breakfast selection--if you are from out of town, you must try goetta--traditional German food that is a blend of sausage, oats, and tiny bits of heaven.
- Riverfront Park is just 3 blocks away and has a playground, basketball court, shelter houses, fishing dock (in the late spring/summer) and a paved walking path for your family to enjoy.
- Gallatin County library is also within walking distance to our home.
- Smuggler's Cove Marina has pontoon rentals and transient slips for overnight if you bring your boat.

I’m an Assistant Principal at a local Middle School and my wife is a teacher and mom to our 3 off-the-wall kids. My wife and I love volunteering our time, and between the two of us, we have coached everything from volleyball to football, directed student leadership initiatives, and tutored students after school. In my spare time I love to travel, work on cars, go boating, and relax with my family. My favorite international travel destinations have been Germany, the Netherlands, and Italy (when my wife and I went backpacking for a month!) These travels led me to an understanding of what amenities guests truly need when traveling and how to be an accommodating host. We are excited to be first-time hosts and open up our former home to guests looking for a little R&R. My wife and I are devoted to making your stay as comfortable and memorable as possible, so if there is anything at all I can do to earn your five-star rating, be sure and let me know. As parents, we know how difficult it is to travel with children, and we want to do whatever we can to make your stay more enjoyable. If you let us know the ages of your children, we will do our best to make sure there are some games, books, and toys that they will enjoy.

During your stay

If you want to book our home, its probably because you want some seclusion. We offer contactless check in with a lock box, allowing you to check in anytime after 3pm and not have to wait. Please read our check-in instructions.

Our permanent residence is about an hour away and I know your vacation is valuable. We can schedule time to come by if any problems arise, but will give you complete privacy. As a family, it is much easier for us to set up the space before you arrive, so please let us know if there are any extras you require. We are also available at nearly anytime through text or phone.

If you have a request after 11pm, we ask that you wait until morning to contact us unless it is an emergency. In that case, please contact us as soon as possible.
