Holiday Rental House
The river Cottage is in a quiet historic town on the Ohio river. It is beautifully decorated, everything is brand new and modern. Bring a boat, there's a launch 2 blocks away. We're close to the Creation Museum, Cincinnati airport, downtown Cincinnati, The Hollywood casino, Perfect north Ski Slopes and more. Relax, and get the feeling of getting away after a long day of excursions.

This house fit our family perfectly and made the 5 minute drive to the creation museum so easy! Don't be fooled by the outside neighboring area because once inside this immaculately clean quiet quaint little house was the perfect thing for my family of 7!...More

The town is one of the older historical towns in Kentucky, and has the only community center in the county. There is a boat launch 2 blocks away on the Ohio river and room in the backyard to park it. Feel free to take the kiddo's to the playground. Take a quiet stroll and enjoy the scenery. There is one store/restaurant in town and details are available on arrival. The food is pretty good too!
There is no public transportation in town, or Uber. You're 5 miles from the Creation Museum, 2 blocks from the Ohio river boat ramp, about 1 hour to the Ark Encounter, 19 minutes to the airport, and 17 minutes to the Hollywood Casino. Rising Star Casino in Rising Sun Indiana is 35 minutes away, Belltarra casino is an hour. Perfect North Slopes is 25 minutes. Downtown Cincinnati and Newport Ky. is 35 minutes. Belltara park gaming/ horse racing/ River bend 35 minutes. Be sure to check out the Newport Aquarium, it's great for all ages!
