My husband and I stayed two nights in the William Rouse suite. It was better than we had hoped. We were given a brief, but informative tour of the suite when we checked in (how to use the fireplace, whirlpool tub, steam shower, espresso machine, etc.). Everything was perfectly clean. The bed/bedding was very comfortable and the room itself is very cozy. All the little extras are icing on an already great cake. Robes, espresso, fresh baked cookies waiting for you, wonderful toiletries. Even the hand soap felt indulgent. They also have a large selection of movies to borrow from in the main house. Breakfast begins with fresh fruit and a yummy homemade granola and all of the breakfast options we had were delicious. For such nice accommodations you may expect stuffy owners, but Bob and Nancy are great. We felt really comfortable at breakfast and just chatting with them. It's just the right mix of high end and casual comfort!

Our stay was fantastic and made our 10th Anniversary very special. The room was exquisite-so comfortable and welcoming. Breakfast was outstanding and Nancy was a delight. The Innkeepers know how to make you feel welcome and at home. I can't wait to go back!

My husband and I chose The Burlington's Willis Graves Bed & Breakfast Inn for our anniversary stay and we were both really pleased with our choice. The room, the hospitality and the breakfast at the Inn were excellent. Their website also made an impression. We chose one of the restaurants on the website and we were very pleased with that. We also benefited from some of the historical tourists attractions recommended on the website.

Willis Graves is a relaxing retreat. Nestled right off the beaten path you get the serenity and quite yet are a few minutes away from the city life. Full recommended. We go yearly.

We stayed in the cabin detached from the main house on the second floor. The room was spectacular. Very clean and cozy. The whirlpool bath tub and steam shower was second to none. Our breakfast in the morning was off the charts. We would love to stay there again..... And we will!

Our stay at Willis & Graves was wonderful. Their warm hospitality met us at the door and followed us throughout our entire stay. We stayed in the restored cabin, it's quiet charm will bring us back again and again, along with Nancy's amazing Creme Brulee French Toast

After having all five grandchildren spend the night, I desperately needed to reward myself with a treat and what better way than to go to Willis Graves B&B. I took a book, brought dinner with me, put on comfy pajamas and settled in to one of the cleanest and welcoming rooms I have ever been in. Of course, my very favorite reason for coming is the oh so good breakfast. You can have a little of everything and enjoy it all. What a relaxing time I always have. Thanks Nancy.

This B & B was such a great find! I surprised my husband with a couple of nights away for his birthday in Sept. 2013 at Wills Graves B & B. Nancy and Bob made us feel so welcome. The Log Cabin Suite where we stayed was amazing. From a scrumptious breakfast to a library of DVDs from which we could choose to watch a movie, ours stay was fantastic. Nancy's recommendations for dinner at Tousey House Tavern was great. We enjoyed a wonderful meal on the deck on a cool fall evening. For those who do not like cigarette smoke, this is the place to stay. The entire property is non-smoking. That was a huge plus.We'll definitely stay at Willis Graves Inn again.
5 en octubre 22, 2013
Our stay was absolutely wonderful. Our room was very comfortable and peaceful and breakfast was delicious. We will definitely stay again and will recommend it to our friends.

This was my wife and my first experience staying at a bed and breakfast. Thanks to Willis Graves it won't be our last. The innkeeper is very friendly, the rooms are clean and have more amenities than we could have hoped. Breakfast was delicious and blew us both away.

Nancy is the gold standard for an innkeeper and host. She redefines hospitality. Bob and Nancy and their staff's collective attention to detail is second to none.
5 en octubre 07, 2013
This was out third time to Willis Graves, and once again we went away happy we stayed. We arrived in the afternoon to relax for a couple of hours, and then to dinner at one of the local historical sites. We stayed in one of the upstairs rooms and everything was great. Breakfast was amazing as always, and conversation with Nancy and other guests is always fun!! You will love it!

This is a one of a kind place! We have stayed at several BnBs, this is at the top of our list! Highly recommend!

Nancy is a fantastic hostess. The rooms (we got to see one besides the one we stayed in) are super clean; the espresso machine in each room as absolute favorite luxury for me; comfortable, great water pressure, beautiful grounds, charming dining area. My husband and I loved our stay and are looking forward to a return visit. We have already recommended this to our son and his wife.

I surprised my wife with an overnight stay at the Willis Graves B&B for our 28th anniversary. The hospitality was great, the accommodations were charming and the breakfast was culinary perfection. We enjoyed every minute, including the county fair that was going on next door!

Room was very quiet and comfortable. Breakfast was good with lots of variety. I would recommend that visitors plan on spending at least an hour at breakfast as staff is not going to set any land speed records. Very friendly proprietors.

Thanks so much for sharing your thoughts concerning breakfast. Not sure if the hour was based on arrival time in the dining room or when the breakfast was ordered. When a guest arrives in the dining room it should only take a few moments for someone to greet the guest with a question about coffee, tea or something else to drink. After that we mention the first course of fresh fruit and homemade granola and ask them if they would like juice. The fruit is delivered very quickly because it is ready to go. The menu is on the table when guests are seated so there is plenty of time to review the menu. We offer a full menu, not just one thing every morning. Most of the time our guests come in at different times between 8 and 10 am, it’s very nice to have that option at a bed and breakfast. If everyone comes into the dining room at once things get a little busy but we can still handle 10 guests at once if we need to. Once we take an order we tell the guest that it will take about 15 to 20 minutes. Depending on what is ordered, it could take less time. Considering that we offer a full menu and not just one thing, it does take longer. We make everything fresh. If someone is in a hurry they usually tell us, we ask how much time they have, we tell them what takes the least amount of time. Not every morning in the kitchen goes without a problem but most of the time we are pretty collected in the kitchen. It could be that we were off a little that day. My guess is that on the average our guests spend 45 minutes in the dining room, many of our guests love the whole dining room situation and they are in no hurry to leave. We have been in business for almost 20 years. In all of those years we regularly learn how to improve what we do. We will make a concerted effort to be aware of timing at breakfast. Once again, thanks for the comments. Most Sincerely, Nancy Swartzel Owner /Innkeeper

Charming! In a word our stay to Willis Grave's B&B was charming. The service was prompt and friendly, they gave us every attention. The inn is decorated in an eclectic mixture of antiques and and modern comfort. We stayed in the Willis Graves suit which has a steam shower and Jacuzzi tub for two. We enjoyed our relaxing anniversary get away. The only problem was it was too short of a stay, but we will return to visit again.
5 en agosto 15, 2013
This B&B is one of our favorite places to go to unwind and relax. Everything is always so clean and well kept, and the owners Bob and Nancy are super nice and very accommodating. The breakfast is always great as well! Will come stay here again soon!

Our stay was fantastic. Clean room, friendly staff & wonderful breakfast. Nancy & Bob made us feel right at home. I highly recommend this B&B.

We stayed at Burlington's Willis Graves on our way to a reunion in KY, coming from northern Michigan. We love B&Bs, and this was, by far, the nicest we've ever visited. Everything surpassed what we could have wanted and we thoroughly enjoyed the stay...our only regret was we could not stay longer. Great hosts, great food and a beautiful spot in a sleepy little town with a lot more going on that you see at first glance! A must stay spot - try to plan two nights and do some local sightseeing.

A perfect retreat to relax. The attention to details is evident in the beautiful rooms, furnishings, and the delicious breakfast. A wonderful experience and I highly recommend this B&B.
5 en julio 25, 2013
I wish I could give this B&B more stars. I went on a two day stay to go have some alone time without the kids and husband. It was absolutely amazing! I chose to stay in the smaller Catharine's room because it was just me and the perfect size. The bed was so comfortable and the linens were luxurious. I absolutely loved the bath tub. In the two nights I stayed there, I took three baths. It was the best bath I have ever had. Nancy and Bob were the nicest people you could ever meet. I absolutely loved talking to Nancy and she was such a gracious accommodating host. She reminds me of Diane Keaton in the movie, Something's Gotta Give. She got me laughing and smiling the whole time I stayed there. She truly makes you feel like a long time friend coming back to visit. The décor in this place is put together so well. There is not a single thing out of place. The breakfast...I do not even need to cover. They are so mouth watering and delicious. Check the other reviews. The collection of dvds are impressive! The cookies left on the bed pillow are so yummy, you will crave for more. I want to come back to place. I will come back to this place.

Everything about this property was great. The owners were away celebrating the arrival of a new grandchild, but the young hostesses were warm and welcoming. Have stayed at many inns and b&bs over the years and this was definitely one of the nicest!
4,8 en julio 15, 2013
The service was exceptional, even tho the owners were out of town. We were made to feel as if we were family. The breakfast and service are beyond reproach, and the setting is fabulous. Definitely will stay again when in the area.

Our stay at Burlington Willis Graves was great. It was our 13th anniversary. The room was cozy. We relaxed, and rested well following a good dinner at the Tousey House. Breakfast at the B&B was wonderful. I had the gingerbread pancakes and my wife had French toast. Simply awesome.

Everything about this Bed & Breakfast is amazing! It all starts with a warm greeting by the hosts, Nancy and Bob, fresh homemade chocolate chip cookies in the room each day, luxurious linens and pillows, robes, the two person whirlpool tub, beauty of the restored antiques everywhere, well kept property and the list goes on. The first class breakfast is second to none! The French toast with fruit filling is better than I could have imagined, the fruit, juice, coffee was the finest! If you''re looking for a bed and breakfast in the Cincinnati area, this is the place to stay!

We stayed in the log cabin in the William Rouse Suite which was so comfortable and VERY tastefully decorated. The bathroom was like a spa and the suite included all the amenities you could want. It was rustic elegance! We were extremely pleased and now call this our favorite B&B!

Excellent B&B, wonderful breakfast and friendly innkeepers. Altogether an enjoyable experience. Will return.

The innkeeper, Nancy, is wonderful. We have stayed here twice and plan to stay a third fairly soon. The breakfasts are terrific. Dietary needs are accommodated. There is a pretty good restaurant (Tousey House) around the corner. We stayed in the second-floor room in a secondary building. Great bath...and very comfortable.

My wife and I stayed at Nancy and Bob's Willis Graves B&B at the end of May and could not have been happier with our experience. The owners went out of their way to make us feel welcome. The room we stayed in was clean and comfortable. The breakfasts each morning were outstanding! I cannot recommend the Willis Graves B&B enough!
4,6 en junio 05, 2013
Not being a typical fan of Kentucky and the general offerings the state has, I was skeptical. The Burlington's Willis Graves Bed & Breakfast is clearly the exception. If you are in Kentucky for any reason, this is the place to stay. Charming rooms decorated to make you feel that you have been transported to early colonial times, with perfectly placed updates in appliances and bathroom amenities that make your stay very comfortable. The service is attentive from some of the friendliest people you'll meet, and the breakfast is delicious enough to bring even the heaviest sleepers from under their sheets. The Burlington's Willis Graves Bed & Breakfast made the trip beautiful and definitely warrants a return.
5 en mayo 31, 2013
Great visit to the Willis Graves B&B in Burlington, KY. Room was great and the people fantastic. We'll definitely be staying there again in the future.

Stayed one night and left wanting more! It felt like home. The owners were such gracious hosts. The suite was enormous. We had an antiques-filled living room and fireplace,bedroom and spa bathroom. The attention to details and luxury was much appreciated and enjoyed. The breakfast was scrumptious. We strolled the beautiful grounds and learned a bit of history of this historic place and surroundings. Can't wait to go back.

An unusual combination of style, charm, attention to detail in their hospitality, and excellence. This place is a standard -- an example of how to to provide a memorable and comfortable experience.

We enjoyed our stay. It was a fast drive to downtown Cincinnati (15 mins or so) but felt miles away from the city. I was surprised to see the B&B set close to a side road near downtown Burlington, KY but it didn't cause any issues and we didn't notice any traffic noise (even while in the main house). We stayed in the William Rouse Suite and it was set behind the main house and was peaceful and private. Nancy and Mary are warm and welcoming and I'm still dreaming of the Creme Brulee French Toast and Nancy's Breakfast Pie. Delicious! Also, we had a great dinner at the Tousey House located just a block or two from the B&B.

Only had time to stay one evening as we were traveling on to TN the next day. We would have enjoyed spending more time in the area.

This was our second stay at the Willis Graves Bed and Breakfast. It was just as great as the first time, Nancy is the most welcoming and friendly. They bend over backwards to make it the best stay possible and the breakfast is the best!!! We have told everyone we know about the little cottage cabin and the breakfast. It is worth the trip to meet Nancy and the wonderful setting that is offered.

Husband and I were looking for a quick and relaxing getaway to have some conversation sans kids. Burlington's Willis Graves fit the bill. Nancy is amazing and her hospitality shows in the details. Although we stayed in one of the smaller rooms, we were still pampered with yummy cookies, an expresso machine and more. It was cozy and lovely. Right down the road is Idlewood Park, where you can hike and bike to your heart's delight. Around the corner is The Tousey House, a Kentucky-esque dining extravaganza. And, yes, it's perfectly acceptable to dine there every evening. We can't wait to return!
5 en abril 08, 2013
As always, Nancy & her staff have wowed us with the overwhelming attention to detail that is standard here. Many B&B's have nice rooms & yummy food, but don't pay much attention to the details in between. This is where The Willis & Graves launches way ahead of the others. The rooms are luxuriant to the point that we really just want to stay in the room & enjoy it rather than go out & do anything. The breakfasts & service are always top notch. But don't discount all the small details in between. This is the best B&B. Plan ahead, or you may have trouble getting a room.
5 en abril 07, 2013
This place is absolute heaven! Everything is perfection and comfort. Ambiance, decor, food, amenities and peaceful quiet. This is our second stay and we will be back. Sorry we couldn't stay longer. This is one of the best B and B's and we have been to many. Pick the cabin, you will not be disappointed. And don't forget to check out the fried chicken at the Tousey House right around the corner from the B and B. Another delight!
5 en abril 03, 2013
We were in the cabin excellent accommadations, next time we will have to stay longer.
5 en marzo 31, 2013
We return to Willis-Graves as often as possible because it never disappoints. Nancy and Bob have set the bar so high that although we stay at B&B's often, none have compared to our experiences here. It is our "drop off the grid" place...and we look forward to each and every visit.
4,8 en marzo 23, 2013
Nancy is friendliness and service personified. Breakfast is outstanding without being overwhelming. We weren't going to watch a movie, but with 500 to choose from, we did so both nights. This place is neat, sensible, uncluttered, welcoming, and just plain nice.

This was our first stay in a B&B and we weren't sure what to expect. Everything about this stay was amazing. We stayed in the William Rouse Suite and the accommodations were comfortable, clean, and beautifully decorated. The amenities were perfect from the steam shower to the espresso machine to the super soft bathrobes. Nancy's freshly baked cookies delivered daily were a nice touch. Breakfasts were phenomenal! There isn't a single part of this trip that let us down except for the fact it wasn't long enough--but that was OUR fault. Next time we won't make that mistake!!

This was our first trip to a bed and breakfast. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We stayed in the Graves suite. The fireplace was great for setting the mood and taking the winter chill out of the room. The whirlpool and steam shower were nice to have also. We will definitely return there in the future. We are northern Kentucky residents, so the location is ideal. It is a great place to get away but still be close to home.

I decided to stay at Willis Graves because of all the great reviews. I can count the times that service has exceded my expectations on one hand. I can't say enough about our experiance at Willis Graves. For a 170 year old home it was warm and cozy on a cold and windy night. At some point while wathcing a movie in bed I realized that I was not at home. Which seemed shocking because that was the way we felt. The breakfast was by far the best food I have ever had. Our only regret was that we could not stay longer due to a tight travel schedule. Even though it is 5 hrs from home, my wife insists that we must come back. We will I'm sure. Thanks Nancy for everything.

This was our first time back since our initial (incredible) stay at Willis Graves back in January. Last time we were in the cabin suite, but this time we opted for the cabin's upstairs room. Although a bit smaller, it actually seemed to enhance the experience as it seemed a bit "cozier". We will probably go with this room in the future. The interactions with the owners and staff were incredible and of course, the breakfast was amazing. We shall return!

We just stayed here for the third time and it doesn't disappoint time and time again. We can't wait to come back.

I must have read 200 reviews of Burlington's Willis Graves before booking. As outstanding as the reviews were it doesn't do it justice to have experienced it. Everything about this place was wonderful down to the cat with one paw. Nancy made us feel right at home. Thanks for a wonderful time. We hope to do it again soon.

This was our fourth or fifth stay at this B&B, and we just keep coming back whenever we get the opportunity. It's a great weekend getaway. The innkeepers are super accommodating, the rooms are cozy, quiet and romantic, and the food is out of this world. You MUST have the gingerbread pancakes.

Willis Graves is now at the top of my favorite B&B list. We didn't want to leave after our 2 night stay. Nancy made us feel like part of her family and she is the perfect host and chef. The best breakfasts we've had. She shared some recipes, too. We like the location which is close to Cincinnati and in a lovely area in KY. We can't wait to return to Willis Graves.

We have come here annually for the past 5 years. In the past we had always stayed in the cabin. This year we stayed in the Willis Graves Suite and it was fabulous. Now we have a tough decision to make before our next visit. What we know is you can't go wrong it is a great place to stay, no matter where you book your stay.

The bed and breakfast was very inviting. We stayed in the cabin and it is so quiet and private. Loved having a second room in which to relax. Breakfast is served anytime the guest wishes between certain hours and there is a menu from which to choose your items. Nancy is extremely helpful in finding interesting things in the area. The location is great for anything a person would want to do in Cincinnati or Northern Kentucky.

Our stay was so pleasant and relaxing. The log cabin room was so tastefully decorated and clean. The homemade cookies waiting for us were delicious. The staff were very congenial and helpful. The breakfast was supurb. I would recommend this B&B to anyone.

This was our second visit. Perfect just like last time. We have stayed at quite a few bed and breakfasts and this one by far has the best accomodations and breakfast! Very classy.

We enjoyed a lovely weekend in the Willis Graves Suite. The food was wonderful with a delightful hostess.

My husband and I recantly spent a night at Burlington's Willis Graves B&B. It was a wonderful restful stop at the end of a long road trip. the innkeeper greeted us before we even got to the door and made us feel at home immediately. We stayed in the Willis Graves Suite which is roomy, comfy, and very clean with a fantastic shower that we were most grateful for. Coffee was ready for us early the next morning with a very tasty and filling breakfast soon after. If our travels ever bring us back to this area we will definitly be staying here again.

We stayed in the room above the dining room., Caroline's room. Perhaps it had been awhile since someone had stayed in this room but it was rather musty. I had a hard time sleeping with my allergies. Other than that the room was small but bed was comfy. Food was excellent and Hosts were extremely friendly.
Respuesta del propietario
I was sorry to read this review and wondering where the musty smell was coming from. There is a small fireplace in the room that is not used and sometimes old fireplaces can smell like an old house, some people like the smell and some do not. If it was not the fireplace I would love to know what it was. I did some work on the windows in both the bedroom and the bathroom , painting was involved.Sometimes rooms do go unoccupied for a few days but when a room is booked we look for dust or in general look for anything out of place,any kind of smell would be at the top of the list. Most Sincerely, Nancy Swartzel

This was a wonderful weekend getaway without the kids. The breakfast was wonderful, the room was spotless, and the friendliness of the host and hostess were amazing, even though we arrived four hours late! Oh, and the double jacuzzi was perfect! I would definitely recommend this B&B to a friend.
5 en agosto 23, 2012
We were warmly welcomed by our host, who explained our stay and where things were and how they worked, etc. The B&B is cozy and very interesting with numerous antiques and quaint touches. We would love to return for another stay when in the area. Thanks for making our 43rd anniversary very special!

We stayed in the Mrs. and Mrs. Graves suite and were very impressed.

Stayed in the Retreat for our 1st B&B experience. Clean, quiet, well-maintained, home away from home in a log cabin atmosphere. Nice cable TV and large selection of DVDs. Relaxing double jacuzzi with lights. Good breakfast, accommodating to special food needs. Friendly staff.
5 en agosto 08, 2012
This is the best B&B we have ever stayed at and we have stayed at quite a few. Without a doubt they could write the book and outstanding service, cleanliness and value. The beds are the best and most comfortable we have experienced and the breakfast is great. I guess what impressed me most was the sheer elegance of the place and the hosts were so wonderful and down to earth. Treat yourself and stay here for sure.

This was our second stay. We have stayed in the suites previously but opted to stay in the retreat this time. Definitely hard to downsize after being in the suite. Will return again next year for our anniversary and splurge on the suite!

We'd never been to the Cincinnati area, and are glad we stayed here. Close to Cincinnati but a nice quiet area. Loved the rooms, wonderful breakfast, and the owners and staff were great/ helpful.
5 en julio 23, 2012
I had a wonderful time at Willis Graves. I am hopeful to return to experience a stay in the lovely little cabin separate from the home. The innkeepers are gracious hosts who go out of their way to make you feel at home. But it truly is the pancakes that I can't get out of my head. If nothing else, they will ensure a return visit.
5 en julio 21, 2012
Nancy & Bob have created an unbelievably detailed place in all categories. The main home renovation was not only done right, but decorated very nicely for the period architecture. The log cabin is simply the best of both worlds...old world character and high quality finishes, with modern comfort to boot! This is simply one of the best, and we would recommend this stay for anyone who appreciates the quality craftsmanship and excellent hospitality! Oh yes, and the food....excellent!

Great romantic feel, wonderful food, and super friendly service! You will leave relaxed, but wishing you would have booked your trip twice as long!

This was our second visit to this B+B and it only confirmed why we chose to come back a second time. Everything was just as good if not better than the first stay.

My wife and I stayed in the Mr. and Mrs. Graves Suite and it was gorgeous. Everything was clean and it was beautifully furnished. The breakfasts were incredible; absolutely 5-star cuisine! The greatest part of our stay, though, was the service. Nancy makes sure that you have everything you need and completely pampers you. We loved everything about it. It was the perfect weekend.

Our experience was fantastic and would recommend this B & B to anyone Scott & Lisa
5 en junio 21, 2012
Our room was a nice sized suite - a sitting room, a bedroom and a bath. Everything was neat, spotless and in good order. I never heard a sound from any of the other rooms, so either the other guests were quiet and/or the house is solid and well sound-proofed. The sitting room was comfortable with a nice TV and books placed around. The largest selection of DVD's I've seen in a residence were available. The bed was comfortable. Temperature control for our suite was in our suite. The shower and whirlpool were great. The owners and helpers were friendly. We choose what time we wanted breakfast and had choices of fruit and main dish. The creme brulee French toast and the breakfast pie were delicious. The grounds were well maintained. We did drive past it the first time because the sign is small. We have stayed at 20+ B&B over the years and this one is one of the best. We honestly can not think of anything to criticize.

A really nice place to stay. Good value and really felt welcomed.

What a great experience for our first stay at a B & B. The Willis Graves B & B was a great mix old and new. Old classic home with antiques complete with fully updated baths. The breakfasts were wonderful. Great hospitality and a great location in Northern Kentucky. Looking forward to a future visit.

We came for our anniversary, and had such a wonderful time. Our accomodations in the Willis Graves Suite (first floor level of the log cabin) could not have been more comfortable, clean, and luxerious. The Bathroom accomdations were especially enjoyable, with the double-size tub, and steam shower. The Breakfasts were everything that was anticipated from reviews we'd read, and we enjoyed dinners at the Tavern in town. Thanks for an outstanding retreat, Bob and Nancy!

This was our second stay, and we absolutely loved it again! We look forward to a 3rd stay someday in the future and would without a doubt recommend it to anyone as a romantic getaway.

Arrived in the late afternoon to a hardworking Nancy in her garden. I immediately felt welcomed and at home. After a brief tour and getting my key I arrived in my room - Catherine's Room - just the right size for one and could easily work for two. The room was bright and airy and charming. The bath was amazing - very nicely appointed, clean and roomy. The homemade chocolate chip cookies on a plate on the bed were soooo good. I looked forward to them when I came back from my day trips. The breakfast Nancy served in her lovely dining room was out of this world. I was lucky to stay long enough to sample just about every combination. Enjoyed some relaxing time on the covered deck with some very good coffee and some very nice people staying at the B&B also. Hated to leave...but will be back in the fall for another wonderful stay. Very highly recommend this B&B.
5 en mayo 31, 2012
We loved our time. The inn keepers were delightful and the rooms were beautiful, clean, and comfortable. Our food was delicious and the homemade cookies left on the bed each evening was the icing on the cake. This was a perfect restful stay for my husband and I on our anniversary. Thank you so much!

We stayed in the William Rouse Log Cabin Suite. I loved the homey rustic atmosphere, but with luxurious amenities. Nancy is one of the best innkeepers we have ever met. She made us feel very welcome. Breakfast was absolutely delicious both mornings. Would definitely like to go back.

Very pleasant surroundings.. Great selection of local reading material. Relaxing and as private as you want it to be. Hosts and staff very friendly and helpful. We've already recommended it to my son.

We love coming here. The inkeepers and staff are very nice and breakfast is always delicious. The bathrooms are what attracted us the first time and help keep us coming back. The steam shower and whirlpool tub are so relaxing. I wish the beds were softer. If the mattress wasnt so firm I would give he room a 5 star rating. Other than that we have no complaints!

We found the rooms tastefully decorated with antiques, clean, and very comfortable. The food was divine. The Swartzels are friendly but not intrusive--the perfect hosts.

My wife and I like to go to BnB's quite a bit. In looking for a place for our anniversary, we landed on Burlingotn's. This place was great, from the BnB itself to the town it was located in. My wife and I absolutely loved the town. If I was to have one complaint, and this is more a preference then a complaint, is that I enjoy it when we are all at 1 big table and able to meet the other guests. If you like having a table to yourself then ignore this last statement :) The food was extraordinary and the inn keepers were a pleasure to talk to. We have already recommended this place to some of our friends.
4,6 en mayo 16, 2012
This was a perfect place to stay. We thoroughly enjoyed our room which was clean, cozy, and charming. The owners were lovely - very friendly and made sure we had everything we needed during our time there. Would definitely recommend this B&B.

Our stay was met with every detail accounted for.
5 en mayo 08, 2012
Absolutely wonderful!!! Nancy is an excellent hostess who pays attention to every detail as well as her guests every need. I stayed in the small room above the dining area... very quaint and cozy... SO clean. Breakfast was above and beyond most B&Bs that I've stayed in. I'll be dreaming of my French toast left behind for months! The entire home is lovely beyond words.
5 en mayo 05, 2012
This Bed and Breakfast was FANTASTIC!!!! Perfect for our first night together as husband and wife. We woke up super early to the bird singing outside and had coffee on the porch. The breakfast was amazing, I have been telling all my friends they HAVE to go! I even dropped my earring down the vent in the bathroom and Bob went and fished it out. I will definitely be back and have already referred several couples to go there as well.
4,4 en mayo 01, 2012
We spent a night away from the kids and really enjoyed it. The staff was very friendly and helpful, the room was very clean and well set up. Breakfast in the morning was pretty good. The marmalade stuffed french toast was quite good, but the breakfast pie was a little runny. Overall, while the B&B was a little on the higher side, we definitely enjoyed staying there and will likely do so again in the future.
5 en abril 29, 2012
My wife and I loved this place. The place was beautiful and the rates are good. The breakfasts were really good. The people are friendly. We will definitely stay here again next time we are in the area.

Burlington's Willis Graves B&B is our absolute favorite place after visiting 20+ inns over the years. It just doesn't get any better than this! Nancy and Bob have created such a luxurious oasis - my husband says we are spoiled and nothing else compares after the pampering experiences we experience at their inn. We will be back!
5 en abril 19, 2012
We stayed for three nights at the Willis Graves B&B, and then on a separate night about a week later. Our suites were located in the charming log cabin apart from the main house. Both times that we stayed we felt like we were "home." It was so comfortable and spacious with luxurious amenities. Our hosts, Nancy and Bob, could not have been any more hospitable. I felt that we left some good friends when we finally had to say goodbye! I would highly recommend this bed and breakfast and hope to return sometime soon.
5 en abril 15, 2012
Our experience at the Burlington's Willis Graves B&B definitely exceeded my expectations. The property is beautiful and well maintained, the hosts are friendly and well informed. But, it is not until you experience their breakfast that you are thankful that you stayed at a B&B. I am not a lover of breakfast foods, but this meal was deliciously heavenly! I will recommend this Inn to anyone and everyone! They truly deserve every "outstanding" rating that I gave them. My personal piece of advice....when you make your reservation, request the cabin on the 2nd floor!
4,8 en abril 04, 2012
This was our second visit and enjoyed our stay very much again! Nancy and Bob are wonderful owners that make sure your stay is fabulous! I highly recommended staying here if you want to be close to the Cincinnati area. Very close and a great restaurant around the corner from the bed and breakfast.

This was our second stay at Willis Graves. We stayed in the Willis Graves Suite and were more than pleased. The fire place was perfect on rainy night... and we enjoyed the bathroom as well... Nancy and Margaret have exceptional service and the food is to die for. They allowed to mix and match the breakfast menu to our liking. They recommended a local dinner restaurant which was phenomenal as well. We plan to return very soon for another night!

Thank you Nancy!! We were blown away by the hospitality at Willis Graves B and B. The rooms are beautiful & full of amenities with the utmost care given to every single detail.

It was our first time away from our baby in a year! This place exceeded our expectations by far - the owners were so sweet and accomodating and boy can they COOK! The breakfast was amazing! Next time we are in the area visiting family, we will be staying TWO nights, not just one. Thanks so much! J&A from Houston, TX

Everything from the room to breakfast to the hospitality was wonderful. We took advantage of having a massage therapist come to our room to give me and my husband massages. It was definitely the respite we needed. The only thing that could have made it better was if we could have stayed more than one night. We will definitely tell our friends and hopefully will get the chance to come back.

We stayed in the Willis Graves suite for a weekend birthday getaway. We got massages through Adrienne and she was perfect. Nancy made the most amazing cake that was left in our room to enjoy when we liked. It was exactly what you need for a short getaway!

The William Rouse Retreat is the perfect place for a romantic getaway. The room was cozy, the bed was very comfortable, the robes were soft, and the steam shower and big tub were awesome. The suite had all the charm and ambiance of a romantic cabin with all the comforts of a modern hotel room. Between decorations and the log walls, there were a million places for dust and spider webs, but the place was spotless. The food wasn't what you expect from a b&b, but it wasn't bad either.
5 en diciembre 05, 2011
This was our second visit in 3 months staying in the cabin suite. Beautifully decorated, elegant but so inviting and comfortable. The double spa tub is pure decadence and the steam shower simply wonderful. Nancy and Margaret are such wonderful wonderful kind and lovely gentle ladies. The food is wonderful, cooked to perfection and they are so good at spoiling us. We will come back as many times as we can. Little Burlington is close to everything you could want - a quick drive to Cincinnati, concerts, steamboat dinners, the huge aquarium at Newport, horse races, beautiful Kentucky countryside and a wonderful night skyline on the Ohio River is just minutes away. I love this bed and breakfast, everything about it is perfect. Five stars from us.

We stayed in the log cabin suite. The room was very clean and comfortable. We did not use the downstairs living area and I'm guessing it doesn't get used very much. The Inn sits close to the road and is on a small piece of land. For some reason I pictured it to be on a large lot. Breakfast was very good and our dinner at Tousey House was excellent. We never saw the owners of the Inn but the caretakers who were there were very nice and accomodating.

I stayed just one night while traveling through the area. I was greeted warmly and given a choice of rooms (since they were not full; it was a nice touch).

Just surprised my wife for our 4th year Anniversary. We had a wonderful time, the service was great and friendly. Little more pricey than other B&B's around the area but it was well worth it. Breakfast was great! Only wish I could have had seconds. We stayed in the Willis Graves suite, the steam shower was amazing as was the 2 person spa tub. I would definitively stay again.

We made reservations only a week in advance and were able to book the upstair room of the cabin. What an excelent B&B. We have stayed at more than 20 different B&Bs over the years and Burlington's Willis Graves Inn is certainly one of the best. We especially loved the breakfast. The Inn keeper (Nancy) was very nice and helpful in finding local activities. The double tub was great. We'll be back again.

My husband and I stayed here after dropping off our son at college and becoming 'Empty Nesters'. The Inn is as quaint as promised and a collector's dream. The perfect place for the antique lover with an occasional outdoor antique market going on right down the road. Great and playful collections are tastefully displayed everywhere and keep your eyes wandering. Nancy provides a very welcoming atmosphere where you feel you can be as private or public as you wish. We stayed in Mr. and Mrs. Graves suite which is the perfect culmination of the old and the new with luxurious linens and a state of the art bathroom. We could choose to sit on a private porch or sit on the communal porch on the back of the house. We did both. I guess Nancy is a natural innkeeper. She is a vibrant, fun and outgoing person who makes you feel at home immediately. The women that help her were carefully chosen, I am sure. Breakfast was amaaazing. I am so looking forward to our next stay and try out the room in the cabin. We will be back!

We were only able to stay one eveining and had to leave early the next morning, but this is a wonderful place. Nancy was very accommodating to prepare an early breakfast. We consider B&Bs to be special lodging and have high expectations for them to be clean and nice and, well...special. Burlington's Willis Graves Bed & Breakfast Inn fully met our high expectations. We would love to stay here again when we visit the Creation Museum.

We stopped at this b&b for one night on a trip between NC and IL. We will definitely make this b&b a regular stopping point on future trips. We stayed in Thomas' room. The room was very charming and romantic. The bed could not have been more comfortable and the linens were luxurious. The bathroom attached to this room, while not huge, was adequate, definitely high-end and very spa-like. The shower was amazing! The breakfast here is what you would expect from a nice b&b. What is unusual though is you have a menu with a few different selections to choose from. The hosts were very friendly and concerned about your comfort and enjoyment while there. I'm trying to come up with a reason to drive to IL sooner rather than later so I can stay there again.

It's always such a treat to get to return to Willis Graves. The Innkeepers, the grounds, the accommodations, and the food are extraordinary.

Everything about our stay was very confortable as the hosts were very friendlyand accomodating. The Willis Graves Suite contained a lot of period furniture which created a very nice atmosphere but was not particularly confortable in the living room. The bed was confortable and the two person whirlpool was a nice touch. We particularly liked the spacious back porch in the morning with coffee and the afternoon with a cocktail.

This was to be my second visit to Burlington's Willis Graves B&B, but my husband ended up in the hospital the day before our trip. He was ok, but couldn't travel, so I sent another couple in our place. Nancy took great care of them, as she did of me last summer. The home is beautiful; the rooms are wonderful and the food is great! We can't wait to return.

If you love B&B's you won't be disappointed with Burlington's Willis Graves accomidations. Everything is there that you need for a wonderful stay. They pamper you from the moment you get there with fresh chocolate chip cookies, a wonderful jacuzzi tub and luxurious room. If you also like antiques, this place will take your breath away and they are also located right beside the Burlington Fairgrounds that has antique shows one a month. The breakfast is out of this world with items you probably have not eaten before. I have stayed there the last three years on my anniversary, and it's been wonderful each time. I can't say enough wonderful things about this inn..... it's a must visit.

We celebrated our 49th anniversary at Willis Graves B&B. Even though we live close, we had heard so much about this B&B that we decided to give it a try. We were definitely not disappointed. We have stayed at B&B's throughout the U.S. and this was by far the best! We stayed in the log cabin. The acommodations were immaculate, the food was delicious and Nancy, Bob and Margaret were very hospitable and easy to talk to. We have reservations to go back next month and are taking another couple with us. We would highly recommend this B&B. Judy and Rich

My husband and I stayed here for our honeymoon (4 nights) in the Mr. & Mrs. Graves suite. It was gorgeous! Nancy was very friendly and helpful, but also allowed us to do our own thing for the week. We will definitely be going back. :) Very clean, delicious breakfast, comfortable atmosphere.

We made plans to stay at Burlington's Willis Graves Bed and Breakfast Inn so that we could meet friends who were visiting the area from Arizona. This was the perfect choice for such a meeting. The facilities accommodated the opportunity to relax and visit with friends. Our room was a roomy suite that was most comfortable for a group and the porch was very comfortable. The rooms were exceptionally clean and the breakfasts were outstanding. The Tousey House restaurant offered a wonderful menu, great wine selections, a most comfortable atmosphere and value! We chose to have out lunch and dinner meals there. The surrounding parks are also very nice. The only downside is that the town of Burlington doesn't have much to offer.

The room, service, location, everything was incredible. Breakfast left us begging for recipes. Could not recommend it highly enough. We'll be back soon!

Wonderful bed and breakfast! Room was beautifully decorated and so comfortable, great night sleep! Nancy made us feel welcome from the phone reservation to her greeting at the door when we arrived. Breakfast was terrific and Margaret was so sweet and breakfast service was great! The home has been meticulously restored and a quick visit to peek at the outside cabin was amazing! Would highly recommend this inn and we are anxious to plan a trip to be able to visit again. Thank you Nancy, Bob and Margaret.

Staying at the Burlington Willis Graves B&B was one of the very best that we have stayed at. Nancy is the greatest as an Innkeeper! The food was exceptional and the outdoor patio was most relaxing. We would strongly recommend this B&B to others and plan to return ourselves.

Wow what a great way to spend a rainy weekend. We had a great time at this charming BB. They had some homemade cookies in our room when we arrived that were soooooo good! We had a nice relaxing jacuzzi/bath, then we cuddled in front of the fireplace with a glass of wine.

My husband and I stayed here on our way to Kentucky. We were impressed by Nancy's friendliness and loved the chocolate chips cookies that awaited us that evening. Breakfast was excellent. I only wish that we could have stayed longer!

We had a wonderful time at Willis Graves! The innkeepers and the people who work there are so friendly and helpful. My husband and I are only 24 and we were concerned that we might feel out of place, that was not the case at all though. Not only were the prices reasonable for a young couple wanting to enjoy some time together, but the innkeeps and the guests were very embracing. We were actually late getting out one day because we ended up staying in the dining room talking with other couples and Nancy for over an hour! Our favorite part of the night was sitting on the back patio playing board games, drinking coffee, eating some of Nancy's wonderful cookies, and talking with another guest of the B and B. We are planning on getting my parents a gift certificate so they can enjoy this place as well.

We had a wonderful time and felt very cared for. They've done a great job, and we will definitely be back.

Nancy and Bob once again have set the bar so high that no other inn can compare with this one. It is the perfect quiet, clean, friendly, and relaxing getaway. It's cozy atmosphere is all you need although there are plenty of options if you want to keep busy. The Tousey House nearby is a perfect complement to the inn and always has a great variety on their menu. We have been viisting this gem for almost 10 years and each time there is something new and delightful. It is definitely our de-stress remedy.

First time ever staying in a B and B and Nancy and Bob made it a fantastic stay! The log cabin room that we had was dated with gorgeous antiques and the breakfast was beyond wonderful! Nancy was a gracious host recommending things for us to do in the area and places to eat dinner at as well. She is also a superb breakfast cook offering what ever we wanted as well as so delicious favorites!

We enjoyed our one night stay. The room was comfortable and had all the extras we could have needed plus some that we would not have though of. Breakfast was delicious and well balanced. It was terribly rainy while we were there and they even thought to leave an umbrella outside our door to get from the cabin to the main house. We will definitely stay there again if ever we are back in the area.

My husband and I spent our past weekend at the B&B and had a very enjoyable time. Our Inkeepers were very accommodating and such a pleasure to know. Breakfast was the meal they served and it was great!!! Our Innkeeper Nancy gave us several ideas for places to go and eat. Several quilt shops for those who are interested. They had for sale a book that listed alot of the B&B's in KY. and their recipes. I have already cooked the pork tenderloin and was great! We stayed in the cabin and it was so nice and quiet, clean and relaxing. I am sure anyone who would be interested in taking some time away from home, you would really love the Burlington's Willis Graves B&B. Kathy

I am not one to give a perfect review, but in this case, I must. We have stayed at Burlington's Willis Graves B&B twice in the past year. This is why we love it there and will continue to return... the innkeepers, the cabin room, the breakfast. Nancy & Bob are gracious hosts who make you feel at home right away, that makes a big difference when you're traveling. Stay in one of the 2 cabin rooms if you can. They are nice sized, private, and both rooms have a huge jetted 2-person tub and steam shower. Heaven. The bed is cozy and there's a fireplace in the lower room. It is the perfect setting for snuggling up with a book and the person you love. Nancy makes a gourmet breakfast to order that will leave you full and happy for most of the day, yummy ginger pancakes, cheesy eggs, fruit w/ homemade granola. This is a high-class B&B with care taken to make your stay comfortable, relaxing, and memorable. Not far from Cincinnati, surrounding suburbian shopping, and Perfect North ski slopes, there's plenty to do nearby. Or... you can just stay in, order take out, and enjoy doing nothing at all. Perfect.

Went to Burlington Graves Willis for 1 night. The room was amazing and the bed oh so comfortable. The Innkeeper was wonderful and very friendly. I have stayed at B&B's all over the U.S. and Europe and have never had such a wonderful breakfast. The Creme Brulee french toast was to die for. Would recommend it to everyone and will definately return.

This was our second time visiting Willis Graves and once again, it was awesome! From the luxurious spa tub and steam shower to the high quality bed linens, this inn is a true gem! We could not have asked for a better breakfast or service from the inn keepers. We had such a fun a relaxing time that we hated to leave. We will certainly visit again!

Willis Graves has exceeded my expectations. We needed to get away. Just needed to relax and forget our worries even for just one night. Our get away started when Catherine welcomed us at the door and the aroma of homemade granola was an immediate invitation to what we wished for. We stayed in the William Rouse suite and I totally suggest you do the same. It is a room where you can just wind down and let everything do. The breakfast was scrumptious. Creme Brule French toast.....Yummy...

Our daughter gave us a night at Burlington's Willis Graves Bed and Breakfast Inn for Christmas. We got away to the Inn through the new snow in Kentucky. Such beautiful scenes there and on the way! Our suite was cozy with the fireplace and hot tub, and the 4-poster bed and decor made it feel like going back in time. Of course football on the tv and the oh-so-comfortable mattress brought us back. Breakfast was a super indulgence of fresh fruit, eggs and bacon and yummy french toast with marmalade filling. Even the coffee was rich and delicious. Can't wait to go back.

Had a great family get-away and can't wait to go again. This B&B has spoiled us in that few others can match the value and overall experience.

Nancy's high standards are evident in every detail, from the ironed bed linens to the excellent morning coffee, to the impeccable beauty of the buildings' restorations. Elegant comfort provided with warmth and grace makes Burlington's Willis Graves a Kentucky jewel in the Queen City's crown. This is it, the real thing, the inn and innkeepers you didn't dare hope to find. We didn't want to leave.

My wife and I look forward to our repeat visits. The owners are so friendly and caring, the rooms are so cozy and exceptionally clean, and the numerous gourmet breakfast menu choices are amazing. This B & B has become our get-away weekend of choice.

The Inn was a great escape from the city! Some highlights of the area are Rabbit Hash General Store (about 12 miles away) and the Freedom Museum (in Cincinnatti) and the Tousey House Restaurant (right down the road).

Everyone with whom we came in contact here were absolutely delightful and made us feel like part of the family! My mom and I indulge ourselves with a yearly "girls' getaway" and stayed in the Mr. & Mrs. Graves Suite. Visiting in late fall, we so enjoyed the warmth from the sitting room's fireplace and the authentic antique decor. The sheer luxury of the triple-sheeted bed linens would have made it impossible to rise before noon had it not been for the lure of the best breakfasts we've ever had at a B & B! The menu was offered with our choice of several gourmet dishes each morning - more than one if we could not decide! Fresh juices & fruits, homemade granola, stuffed french toast, gingerbread & more pancakes, eggs, quiche, or omelets - any style - fresh eggs taste like none you buy in a grocery. Most surprising, each guest was served at his convenience during the breakfast hours - not at a set time! There were plenty of nearby dinner spots including the Tousey House -where we (& others) ate every night! There was just enough to do in the area to enjoy our stay, relaxed and refreshed, but not harried! Nancy was so much fun - I just can't say enough good things about staying at Willis Graves B & B - and my mom and I ALWAYS stay at B & B's for our trips! I'd love to go back to this one right now!!

My one night stay at Willis Graves B&B was a last minute decision. I was not only pleasantly surprised, I was overwhelmed--and I am a picky person! Impeccable, tasteful, immaculate, delicious--these often overused superlatives really do apply to this B&B, and the welcome was warm and friendly. That this is an 1830 house is even more unbelievable, as the updating and comforts are definitely 21st century, with no loss of historical charm and character. A skillful blend of antiques and reproductions with modern, well-functioning conveniences make this a perfect retreat for the traveler. The inn is surrounded by countryside, is a five minute drive to the small town and an excellent restaurant--another restoration--(the Tousey House Tavern), and about a 30 minute drive from Cincinnati. Breakfast was delicious in a small, elegant dining room, and the proprietor was adept at fielding questions along with serving a meal. I hope to return sometime. It was all a very pleasant surprise and is now a wonderful memory.

We arrived to a beautiful home in the town of Burlington. The room was perfect and clean. We went into town for a great dinner, at the suggestion of the owner..and the prices were really good as well. We watched a movie from thier EXTENSIVE collection of DVD's and had a great sleep. We woke up to the smell of breakfast, and as my title says, I was so full after breakfast, I truly could not ask for more. We spent the day at The Creation Museum. It was AMAZING as well, and only about 10 min from the B & B. If you are looking for a restful nights sleep, and a great start to the day...PLEASE consider Willis Graves...we met some great people in the owners and guests!!

We had a wonderful stay. The food was great, the room was beautiful, and the hospitality was the best. If you get a chance to stay at this B & B you won't regret it!! We love to travel to different Bed and Breakfasts and this one we will for sure come back to! Jason and Crystal

My wife and I made a second trip into Kentucky for a winter vacation. I had never stayed at a B and B before on our first vacation, so I had no expectations on our first stay. All I know is my last hotel stay was not so good. I was overwelmed by the comfort and the friendliness of the Inn. It was everything I loved about a place to stay, and was very much like home. Like the feeling you have when you are done for the day, and we looked forward to coming, "Home", to relax from the days activities. We will definitely go back when we plan our next vacation for the summer Cincinatti zoo and city visit. There was no stress in the time we stayed there. This is very unlike the vacation we spent in Michigan staying at a beach front hotel. It was awful. Loud, crowded, the bed was unfriendly, and the breakfast bar was so unorganized we left. We will NEVER stay at a hotel again after my experience at this B and B left with us. The stay, the rooms, the accomadations, the quiet, the privacy, the BEDS, Great sleep, and a wonderful breakfast to start the day. Did I say quiet!?!?! Thanks to Nancy and Bob and Margaret! Thank you from Mike and Pam Downam.

We have been to this Inn tweice and each time it is an amazing experience that keeps us coming back. We have stayed in the 2nd floor log cabin retreat and the warmth of the atmosphere, plus the quiet comfort provide a wonderful place to relax and recharge. I would recommend this B&B to anyone.

My husband and I stayed only one night as a mini-break from our two small children. Everything was as beautiful as the pictures.

I only wish we could have stayed for a week!

We have stayed at this Inn several times and each time is nicer than the last. Nancy and Bob have a real gift for making you feel at home no matter which room or suite that you choose. Her breakfasts are incredible...we want to stay several days just to see what delightful surprise will await us at the table. We have not stayed at a hotel since visiting this Inn and though we have had wonderful experiences in other places, none compare to this experience. A totally relaxing, pampered, escape!

The Catharine Room at Willis Graves Bed & Breakfast charms one with a mix of 19th Century decor and 21st Century conveniences. For example, the bed's head and foot boards are cannonball design. The softness of the bed puts one to sleep in very little time. The bathroom has a jacuzzi, which is very relaxing after hiking down the nearby Idlewild bike and hiking trails. The breakfast offers a variety for one's health and pallete. If one desires fruit and granola, they have it. If one desires a scrumptious creme brule french toast, they have it. Willis Graves provides one with a good opportunity to rest and recouperate from the daily stresses of life.

We stayed in the Mr. and Mrs. Graves Suite 9.12.09. Bedroom was a bit small but felt just right. Had everything we needed. Bed and pillows were comfortable with very nice linens. Closet with a light held our suitcase along with the inn supplied robes, games, iron and ironing board. Bathroom is beautiful - there is a steam shower, large whirlpool and a sink with ample space to put makeup/brushes out on. The room was a bit on the cold side and we did not have access to the thermostat but the blankets kept you warm. The breakfast was phenomenal. We enjoyed the crème brulee French toast and the gingerbread pancakes. I’m picky and these were delicious. There were plenty of DVD movies on hand to pick something out we had not seen yet. I like to run in the mornings and there is a park with asphalt trails about ½ mile down the road that was very nice. Everything is beautifully maintained. Nancy is a wonderful hostess with a wealth of information and operates this home very professionally. She strikes me as a high energy individual who keeps everything maintained, organized and running right.

Short distance to tons of activities, but secluded enough to feel like your are getting away from it all. Every detail is thought of and you leave feeling pampered. My husband and I go here at least 3 times a year for time to relax and reconnect. The log cabin suites are the absolute best with their fireplaces, huge whirlpool tubs, steam showers, and lush linens. We love waking up and having coffee in bed and then going over to eat what I think is the best breakfast I ever had, the stuffed french toast. You really can't ask for anything more than what they offer.

I left this B & B saying to my wife that I would definitely write a review to recommend Willis & Graves; excellent in every way. Any time that we are near Cincy, this will be our stop-over.

We just returned home from another fantastic stay at Willis Graves. It is my husband's favorite place for us to getaway since we are spoiled by the luxurious surroundings, gourmet breakfasts, fresh baked cookies, spotlessly clean rooms, and warm hospitality. The bathrooms (with air-jet tubs, beautiful tile and plush towels/robes) are the best we have experienced in any bed and breakfast (we've been to 12 so far) or hotel. It just doesn't get any better. Nancy is friendly and welcoming, she has masterfully created a welcome escape from our everyday lives. We are always sad to leave, it is like a mini-vacation every time we visit!

Upon arrival and reviews from other guests, we had high expectations of the inn. They were correct. The inn was beautiful and relaxing. The innkeepers were gracious and their recommendation to dine at the Tou Sey House made our 28th anniversary special!

The Burlington Willis Graves B&B is a treasure to find. Stayed here on the way to the East Coast. Enjoyed everything so much that I stayed here again on the way home. Breakfast was the creme brulee french toast, sausage and eggs. So good! That alone is worth the 8 hour drive! Will be back. Lots of things to explore nearby. Clean beautifull inn.

I truly enjoyed my stay, coming to town for business, it was a refreshing change from all the hotels. I could not have been made to feel more at home with Bob and Nancy if they had been family. The breakfast was great, you must have the Stuffed French Toast, especially the Orange Marmalade flavor. It was perfect. I will definitely return with my wife for another visit. Pat R.

It couldn't have been more perfect! The welcome we received from the owner was warm and friendly. The room "Cabin Retreat" was very well appointed, clean and comfortable. We also enjoyed a hot, delicious breakfast. Fresh fruit and many made-to-order choices. We had gingerbread pancakes and marmalade- stuffed French toast. All served with a smile! AWESOME!

We found the Willis Graves B & B to be a hidden gem in northern Kentucky. If you have never stayed at a B & B before this is a great place to start. It will spoil you. Nancy, the innkeeper, was very friendly and helpful. She made us feel right at home.

If you are looking for an historic, charming, clean and romantic bed and breakfast, then you will love Burlington's Willis Graves. From the moment you walk in the door to the second you leave, Nancy, Bob and the staff treat you with genuine hospitality, warmth and service. Each room captures 1800's charm and decor with pampering quality. The bathrooms, especially the Grave's Suite, feels like a five-star spa. Breakfast is incredible! You are treated to a variety of scrumptious gourmet meals. Every meal we had both fills you, yet leaves you craving more of their delectable food. This place is a must stay. It's not humongous, but well worth the trip!

We stayed at Willis Graves for only one night during our vacation, but I wish we could have spent the whole week there! Everything about the inn was outstanding: the room was wonderful, the food was delicious, and the staff was extremely friendly. I can't wait to find an excuse to stay there again!!

I took my wife to the bed and breakfast for her birthday. It was so comfortable and gave us both the chance to relax. The breakfast was out of this world, we felt so at home!

From the moment of arrival we were treated in a most down-home yet personable manner. Nancy made every effort to make us feel welcome in her "home", sharing history of the area and the home, including a sneak peak at the restored cabin on the premises. It is the tickler that may get us back for another visit if possible! Breakfast was gourmet, and the steam shower and jacuzzi tub was our daughter's favorite item, besides the 3 enjoyable cats!

We have stayed at the Inn three times and we have loved every minute. The rooms are well appointed and very beautifully decorated. The bathrooms are spacious and luxurious - something which is hard to find in most b&bs. To top it off, the breakfast is phenomenal. We are looking forward to visiting again!

My wife and I loved trying new B&B's until we found this place. Everything is perfect every time we go. The Willis Graves Suite and the Log Cabin rooms are our favorites. There is a charming local restaurant within a mile for a truely unique experience and Cincy is a short drive away for all types of entertainment. We still try new B&B's but this is a weekend for us each year.

We spent our 10th Anniversary in the new cabin and enjoyed everything about the stay. The innkeeper was very hospitable and the breakfast was wonderful. The room was comfortable and the jacuzzi tub was so relaxing. I could have stayed longer.
