I am a pretty picky traveler and it takes a lot to impress me. From the moment we approached the Inn’s sign on the side of the road, to the picturesque ride up the drive to the main home, to the stunning grounds, painstakingly cared for and meticulously decorated home, unmatched service from Tom and Carole, and the lengths to which the hosts and property go to ensure your stay is absolutely perfect…this is an unparalleled experience. The only thing that could have made our stay better would have been choosing to stay at the Inn for more than one night! The breakfast was delicious and Tom and Carole both ensure you have everything you need from wine upon arrival, complimentary snacks at all times, to fresh coffee delivered to your door in the morning. We stayed in Jenny's Retreat where the original hardwood floors are breathtaking and the bed was perhaps one of the most comfortable I've slept in. A plate of mouthwatering brownies were delivered to our room at some point while we were out for dinner! The private porch was a lovely addition for our morning coffee listening to the birds chirp and looking out over the pool below. I could go on… Overall, highly recommended. Thank you Tom and Carole for living and breathing hospitality like we have never seen before. This is now our new ‘go-to’ place! Thank you for a lovely night spent in your beautiful Inn.
My sister and two cousins recently spent Friday and Saturday night at Murphin Ridge Inn. Two of us were in cabins and two in the guest house. All of us couldn't have been more pleased with our selections. We had made dinner reservations for our first night at the Inn and were blown away by the food and hospitality! We had planned to go elsewhere for dinner on Saturday night but decided to eat at the Inn again and were so glad we did!
What a beautiful stay we had! Lovely grounds surrounding the Inn. The only request I would ask is to place a sign at the entrance off the main road in addition to a street sign Those without a gps system would have a difficult time finding this remote location. Will return for sure. Thank you from Brecksville OH
My husband and I had celebrated our 24th wedding anniversary the month before our visit and we were struggling to find time to spend together (just the two of us) so I was looking for a romantic one night "getaway" somewhat close to our No. KY home. And, WOW!, did The Henderson House provide that. Tucked back in a quiet little country area just 45 minutes from our home, we were able to truly disconnect from the craziness of our life with three kids, work and me going back to school. And the atmosphere and location aren't the only things that made this the perfect little getaway...the service was phenomenal! At check in we were greeted by Carlene, given a tour and then left alone to enjoy our stay. The room had complimentary champagne waiting, and, we were given fresh chocolate dipped strawberries to enjoy when we returned from dinner. We also chose to take advantage of the breakfast for two (at an extremely reasonable rate) and had the option of eating it in the beautiful decorated tea room, having it delivered to our room, or even to have it set up out on the balcony. Unfortunately for us we were having a cold spell instead of nicer spring weather so the balcony was out for us, but it would've been a wonderful setting to enjoy a meal together. Instead, we had the breakfast delivered to our room; and, like everything else, breakfast was superb (especially considering Carlene sent a staff member out to get chocolate milk that I decided I wanted at the last minute, only IF they had it though)! Anyway, I just cannot say enough about this B&B, the atmosphere AND the service! We will definitely return!
We have stayed at Murphin Ridge before, love the cabins and the grounds and because there is on cite dinning it was wonderful! This time they may have a new chef , the food not so good this time. We left the ground the second night to eat, the purpose of our trip was to relax not to drive 20 miles to eat! But again everyone was supper and the cabin great just not the food.
My wife and I have stayed at First Farm Inn more than once. This is a great B&B especially if you're an animal lover. I would highly recommend First Farm Inn to anyone. The food is great, and the property is clean and welcoming. Close proximity to a lot of local attractions. Book here if you're looking for a great weekend getaway.
We had a wonderful stay! The innkeepers are very knowledgeable of the area. They were very helpful with meal and activity information. I truly enjoyed the Eagle Bend Alpaca farm. The animals are beautiful! I would recommend for a relaxing time.
My boyfriend and I stayed here on our mini vacation. When we got there the place was even more beautiful then what the pictures could show. The people were very nice and the rooms were very spacious and they had everything we needed. We will definitely stay here again and we would highly recommend you stay here too.
My wife and I chose the 1861 Inn instead of a hotel/motel when we visited Batavia for two nights. Because we would not have time for breakfast the second morning, due to us having to catch a 7:15 A.M. flight, Carole prepared a light lunch for us on our arrival. The next day we had a very early morning appointment and couldn't fit in breakfast, but again Carole accommodated us and served a late breakfast upon our return. Both meals were excellent in taste and presentation. And, just as important to us, she prepared our dishes vegan to suit our life style. Our stay was great and so much more pleasant than if we had chosen a hotel or motel. The Cottrills are friendly and intent on pleasing their guests. Their house is charming with interesting history, and Marley, the beautiful dog, is a real treat.
My wife and I spent one night at 1861 for our 3rd wedding anniversary and thoroughly enjoyed it. Carol and Tom were very hospitable with great service and the Penn house was very beautiful. I enjoyed hearing some of the history of the home. It was well decorated and very clean, we left feeling refreshed and relaxed!
Nancy was the perfect host for a wonderful weekend. She was knowledgeable, friendly, and great company. Beautiful, clean, and comfortable accommodations. We had a terrific time. Thank you for having us!
My wife and I returned to the Inn to celebrate her birthday. At the end of our stay her comment was that "the Inn was the perfect place to have taken her". We found the owners and staff to be outgoing and friendly and went out of their way to make our stay memorable. The food was excellent and well worth the price. We made the mistake of going out for diner one of our three nights there, and will not make that mistake the next time we visit. The atmosphere is one that allows you to find a sense of peace, that few places afford. We will be back soon to enjoy the people and surroundings at Murphin Ridge Inn and the beauty that surrounds it.
If you have never visited Murphin Ridge - You simply must! Whether in a cabin or in the Guest House - we have stayed in both on numerous occasions, you will feel as if you are completely taken care of. The rooms and furnishings are wonderful, the setting of the place is serene and just beautiful no matter what time of year. Paula and Jerry and the entire staff will make sure you are most comfortable. And the food is exquisite - breakfast is so wonderful - you will eat more than enough to get to dinner - which is the highlight of any day we are there. Like they say on that TV commercial for another product - Just Do It!
The attention to detail, cleanliness and hospitality of the innkeepers makes this b and b stand out from the rest. This is truly a special place, especially for couples who need a getaway or to celebrate a special occasion. The breakfast is 5 star and worth the trip itself! Do wish it wasnt quite so costly so we could come back more often. Definitely worth the splurge though. Room note...voices and tv noise to carry through the floors to the upstairs cabin retreat. We had to play soft music to drown out the loud tv to go to sleep. Not a deal breaker for sure but worth noting for future guests.
Best hospitality ever! Hosts were warm and friendly, and very detailed in the accommodations of their home. We felt right at home and shared pleasant conversations multiple times. The breakfast meals were delicious and more than enough. A truly beautiful home. Will definitely go back for another stay!
The dream suite was wonderful!! The room was very clean (and I'm very picky) and decorated very tastefully. This was the first time in over 10 years my husband and I were able to get away overnight without our kiddos. It was so relaxing and peaceful. We were also very fortunate in having 60 degree weather in February which allowed us to take advantage of the fabulous patio area at night. The owner Leann was very friendly from the start and helpful, providing us a list of their recommended restaurants, since we aren't from the area. Might I also add she made an absolute delicious breakfast!! We both got different dishes and were overly pleased with the quality and quantity of the food. Overall definitely worth the money and we will not only spread the word about this little gem of a place but we'll definitely be returning!
