Excellent, Relaxing Experience

5 on September 15, 2014

We truly enjoyed our stay at Willis Graves. It was a wonderful place to get away for a few days and not be all that far from home. The owners and staff were exceptional, and you could easily see they truly enjoy what they do. The food is FANTASTIC!!! Thank you for a relaxing weekend we really needed!


Will go back!! Great Stay !

5 on September 10, 2014

We really enjoyed even a one night stay at the Willis Graves house. The room was beyond our expectations, and the breakfast was fantastic! Definitely will go back and try to stay longer.


Enchanting Place to Stay

5 on September 07, 2014

We had a delightful weekend at this B&B. Beautiful, quiet place full of charm. It had all the comforts we needed and a breakfast second to none. Our hosts went above and beyond in helping us find civil war sites to explore. Hope to stay there again some day!


Excellent in Every Way

5 on August 26, 2014

Superlatives in all ways describe the Willis Graves B&B. Owners are terrific folks, food is absolutely top-notch, rooms and facilities are as clean and spotless as any we have ever seen. We would recommend this to anyone anytime!


We absolutely loved our stay in the Cabin!

5 on August 21, 2014

We stayed one night in the suite of the cabin and couldn't have been more comfortable. Nancy was so welcoming, and every touch was thought of - from the steam shower to the in-room espresso machine. We had a wonderful dinner around the corner at Tousey House Tavern, and enjoyed every minute of our stay!


This place is the best of the best!

5 on August 11, 2014

Perfect!


Relaxing Tranquil and food beyond compare

While the room rate is a little pricey it is well worth the stay.


'Burlington's Willis Graves Bed & Breakfast Inn' Review

5 on August 04, 2014

Such a lovely get-away! Couldn't have dreamed up a more beautiful place to escape to! High end amenities, luxurious linens & bathrobes, steam shower & whirlpool tub, even homemade cookies before bed! Not to mention a breakfast made from heaven! This inn provides all the comforts of home and the elegance of a five star hotel! Our second stay here, and we'll be sure to be back again!


A lovely getaway

4.8 on August 01, 2014

My husband and I came here for a little mini-vacation. We stayed in the log cabin, which I heartily recommend. The room was beautiful: rustic and charming while still having all the modern conveniences you might want. The whirlpool was fantastic. The innkeepers were very friendly and helpful, and the breakfast we were served was absolutely delicious. I'm still having dreams about that creme brulee french toast. Overall the stay was absolutely fantastic. My only real gripe was that we were only left one and a half rolls of toilet paper for our entire stay, and running out at the end of the last day was not super fun. Oh, also the Tousey House Inn was given a glowing review by the staff, but when we went we were very disappointed: mediocre food at sky-high prices. So to sum up: Awesome inn. Order the creme brulee french toast. Skip the Tousey House. The cabin rooms are extra-special if you want some privacy.


Great stay at Willis Graves B & B!

5 on July 28, 2014

My wife and I spent three wonderful nights and days at the Willis Graves B & B. Nancy, Bob, Margaret, and Mary were friendly and helpful. The breakfasts were so delicious and if anyone tells you that "real men don't eat quiche," tell them that "real men eat whatever they want, especially if it tastes good!" The breakfast pie was good and filling. The ginger bread pancakes were tasty too. The back porch was a place of quiet solitude to sit, drink coffee and do some reading. We were there to visit the Creation Museum in Petersburg. Nancy told us how to get there on the back road and we saw the beautiful Kentucky scenery instead of the highway. If we ever have a reason to be back in that area, we would gladly return to Willis Graves B & B. Ron and Bren A.


Perfect Getaway in Northern Kentucky

5 on July 24, 2014

My wife and I and another couple stayed at Willis Graves in Burlington recently. We have not stayed in many B&B's, but this one made a convert of me. It was fabulous. We rented the two suite cabin. The amenities were top flight - very comfortable bed, steam shower, whirlpool bath, etc. Breakfast was to die for! The only problem was that we could not decide what to order. Everything was great. Our hosts were hospitable to the max. We would definitely stay here again.


Best B&B EVER!!

5 on July 18, 2014

Love Nancy and Bob. My Mom and I have been coming here for 15 years and we love it!!! I highly recommend this B&B to anyone traveling for fun or business.


Most beautiful room

5 on July 18, 2014

The cabin rooms are the cleanest and most beautiful rooms we have ever stayed in. We stay at B&B's several times per year and this is the best. Nancy and Bob are great and the breakfast is excellent!!. The Tousey House is very close for dining and the food is great!!


ABSOLUTELY AMAZING

5 on July 02, 2014

My boyfriend and I stayed here for one night on a spontaneous mini vacation. I loved the place before I even got there, based on the website. Nancy was so sweet and made sure we were constantly satisfied and happy. Our room was very clean and I didn't even really worry about bed bugs or other issues. I felt more like I was part of a family rather than just a room. I definitely recommend this place! I wish we could have stayed longer!


Very nice property, nice people, superb breakfast

5 on June 27, 2014

Had a very enjoyable stay. The breakfast is amazing. The property is very nice and comfortable.


Great Getaway

4.6 on June 26, 2014

This is the second time my wife and I have stayed at this inn for an anniversary and we have been beyond pleased both times. We very much enjoy the rustic appearance of the William Rouse Retreat in the historic log cabin but having all of the modern amenities such as the steam shower, chromatherapy whirlpool tub etc. The cookies are fantastic, breakfast is fantastic and the Retreat is hard to leave once we become ensconced. I haven't stayed in the main house and probably won't as I love the cabin so much but we intend to spend more kid-free overnights here and would recommend the inn to anyone. I only knocked back the star rating on value because according to the key above three stars means it met my expectations, which in this case for my financial situation it's a bit of a splurge but I felt pampered commensurate to my outlay. I have no qualm about the price of my stay, but I tend to be a budget traveler so I am used to hotels and in general not receiving the service or amenities offered by Nancy and Bob at their wonderful inn.


We just keep going back, all the way from Denver, CO

5 on June 25, 2014

We love this treasure of a B & B in Kentucky. Nancy is charming and delightful and she and Bob have created a beautifully decorated and comfortable place. The antiques are artfully arranged and reflect the local history of the area. It's great to have a choice at breakfast and the food is delicious.


Our 52nd Anniversary...

5 on June 25, 2014

This was our second time to visit this B&B and it was even better than our first visit. Our room was large, well furnished, and the bed was comfortable. The breakfast menu had a good selection of items and. even with my food allergies, I was able to have several choices from which to select. The portions were large, served hot, and were delicious! We will definitely return for a 3rd visit at some point.


Fabulous stay!

5 on June 23, 2014

My husband and I just needed a little get away. This was within an hour from home, close to a wide variety of things to do, and offered a great relaxing atmosphere. The breakfast both mornings was wonderful. We had a wonderful time and plan on going back the next time we need a break from daily life.


A bit of heaven in KY

5 on June 16, 2014

If you need a peaceful place to relax and be pampered Willis Graves B and B is that bit of heaven. The entire place is thoughtfully and tastefully decorated. The amenities are so extensive. Books to read, DVDs to watch, luxurious toiletries, plush robes, beautiful gardens, relaxing spaces in which to sit are just a few of the many touches provided to make your stay heavenly. The beds and bedding are lush and so comfortable. The breakfast is beyond delicious and generously served. Guests can chose from a varied menu and the meal is cooked to order and is served on delightful china with white linens in a charming breakfast room. Finally the hosts, Bob and Nancy, make you feel so welcomed and are eager to make your stay just a bit like heaven. It is the best B and B we have ever experienced.


The best bed and breakfast we've been to! Loved it!

5 on June 12, 2014

We just enjoyed our stay so much we're talking about going back for a long weekend! The room was spotless,. It's now our favorite little get away!


Consistently an Excellent Stay

3.8 on June 04, 2014

Over the years my husband and I have stayed here several times and we are always impressed by the excellence of the service and cleanliness at Willis Graves. There's a great mix of antiques with all the modern amenities like steam shower and espresso machine. We spend hours relaxing on the beautiful covered back porch. The staff are excellent and the culinary experience is not to be missed! We hope to stay here many more times in the years to come! It's become kind of a home away from home!


An Outstanding B&B

5 on May 30, 2014

In May, 2014, while on vacation, my husband and I spent two nights at the Burlington's Willis Graves B&B Inn. We stayed in the Mr. & Mrs. Graves Suite. It was absolutely gorgeous. The first day was rainy and cold, so in the evening, we took advantage of the lovely gas fireplace in the living room to get warm & cozy. Nancy had made some fresh chocolate chip cookies for us. When we asked for her suggestion for dinner, she said the Towsey House, less than a mile away in town, was always good. She volunteered to make reservations for us, if we'd like, so we took her up on it and had a lovely dinner. Nancy provides a microwave & refrigerator in each suite, plush robes, wonderful soaps & lotions and the bathroom has a steam(or regular) shower as well as a wonderful soaking, bubbling bath tub. The brealfasts were extraordinary. Guests could choose when to arrive at the breakfast room between 8 and 9:30 a.m. White linens and Johnson Bros. stoneware and fresh flowers dressed the tables. We were each able to select from a menu presented to us of four breakfast entrees. My husband chose Baked Ham & Eggs Crisp the first morning and Creme Brulee French toast the second and enjoyed them both. I selected Gingerbread Pancakes both mornings because they were so good and were easy for me, as a Type 1 diabetic, to count the carbs to determine my insulin needs. Nancy happily provided me with sugarfree syrup, too. We liked this place so much, we both wanted to stay another night! However, we had reservations & committments ahead on the wind-up of our 3 week road trip. My husband and I have stayed at well over 100 b&b s in our 37 years of marriage. Burlington's Willis Graves is tied with two others for first place in our experiences. This is a quiet, restful, beautiful, accommodating place. Be sure to give it a try!!


Our favorite B & B

5 on May 30, 2014

We have been coming here 2 or 3 times a year for the past several years and will continue to do so. It is so comfortable, super clean and has an ambiance that promotes relaxation. We just love the Willis Graves suite with the separate sitting room with comfortable furniture and gas fireplace (especially in the winter months). The breakfast is A+++. The owners have become friends. Nancy and Bob and so friendly and go out of their way to make sure your stay is as pleasant as possible. We love having our wine on the covered patio and the owners often join us for some spirited conversations. Overall, we can't give this B & B a 10. We would have to assign an "11." It is that good! Dick & Judy


Highly Recommend!

5 on May 30, 2014

The owners made you feel right at home. The rooms and breakfast were amazing! So relaxing! I look forward to coming back!


Outstanding B&B

5 on May 28, 2014

Absolutely loved this place! Our first experience with a B&B and loved it!! Every little detail was amazing and we will def be back!! My husband and I had such a relaxing and lovely time! Couldn't say enough nice compliments about it!!!


Great experience in NKY

4.8 on May 27, 2014

What a wonderful log cabin we stayed in and Nancy was just the best hostess


Charming

5 on May 20, 2014

Willis Graves met all of our expectations! My daughter and son-in-law had stayed here twice before and highly recommended it. I also would highly recommend it.


Lovely

4.4 on May 16, 2014

Very nice place. The owner was out of town but the staff was great. I was amazed at the safety planning in place. They have a storm basement in case of tornado and a window ladder in case of fire The house was lovely and food great. Jim


Willis Graves B&B was Fantastic!!

5 on May 09, 2014

My wife and I celebrated our 12th wedding anniversary this past weekend at the Willis Graves B&B in Burlington KY. We have 4 children, all 9 yrs old and under, and we 'rarely,' if ever, get an opportunity to truly relax! Staying at this B&B was the first time in a long time we really relaxed and got to unwind. We would recommend this B&B to anyone looking for a truly valuable and memorable experience! Every detail, from the incredible breakfast our room, was outstanding, clean, comfortable, and beautiful! 10 stars for this place!! We will definitely be returning!!


Anniversary Getaway

5 on May 07, 2014

We had a wonderful, relaxing time during our visit! Bob and Nancy were absolutely the best! Looking forward to staying again in the near future!


Great

4.8 on April 22, 2014

New to the B&B experience but this went above and beyond my expectations. The accommodations were outstanding, and breakfast was fantastic. We will definitely be coming back.


One of our top B&Bs

5 on April 19, 2014

Nancy and Bob are fantastic folks and made our stay a wonderful experience. We will be back, soon! We stayed in the Graves suite and loved it.


Loved Kentucky!

4.6 on April 17, 2014

This was our first visit to Kentucky & we only stayed one night at Willis Graves, but felt very much at home. Nancy is a lovely hostess who made us felt welcomed & relaxed. She recommended a fantastic restaurant nearby which made the entire experience even more enjoyable.


Wonderful B&B

5 on April 11, 2014

The suite was beautiful and the breakfast was fantastic. My favorite breakfast is now the Creme Brulee stuffed French Toast. Can't wait to go back.


Wonderful 1st Anniversary Getaway

5 on April 08, 2014

This place is amazing! We were welcomed at the door and given the tour of our lodging for the night. There were fresh cookies available, and the espresso machine was a nice touch. We stayed on the 2nd floor of the cabin and enjoyed the VERY comfortable queen-sized bed and the spacious bathroom. The owners are very kind, and Nancy is a WONDERFUL cook! My wife tried the Crème brûlée French toast and highly recommends it. She ordered it on both mornings of our trip, she liked it so much! I can heartily recommend the orange marmalade French toast as well as the peach-mango French toast that was not on the menu but happened to be available. The price is also very reasonable for the accommodations, especially for the quality of the room, furnishings, and food! The only complaint is that it is too far away from our home in Georgia to visit more often! Thanks to Nancy and Bob for a wonderful stay!


Loved it!!

5 on April 07, 2014

We could not have asked for a better experience. We stayed in the log cabin and it was so beautiful. There are many bonuses to this place...steam shower, jetted tub, espresso machine, fridge, etc! The customer service is awesome. Bob and Nancy make you feel like you have known them forever!


Just as we expected...fantastic

5 on March 26, 2014

Room was very quiet, remote, clean, wonderfully decorated with great amenities. Food was fantastic with lots of flexibility to order whatever you'd like. I would highly recommend Willis & Graves to anyone. I know my wife and I will be back.


Our first B&B in KY and loved it!

5 on March 24, 2014

I cannot say enough good things about our stay at this B&B. Nancy was so sweet and accommodating to my husband and I along with our children. We stayed in the Graves Room which was very roomy, clean and cozy. Nancy's breakfasts were delicious along with the cookies she baked daily and put in our room. The inn is in the historic part of the city, which was so nice for us. Being from South Florida, we don't get to see too much countryside and this was such a treat for us. This was the first time my children were in a B&B and don't want to ever go back to a hotel! Thanks again Nancy for such a wonderful experience. We will be back!


Warm and Cozy

5 on March 17, 2014

The Innkeeper was welcoming, and the breakfast delicious. Great bed!


We had a very nice time

4.6 on March 15, 2014

We were at the Willis Graves B&B for just one night on our way to Nashville. Unfortunately the weather dampened our visit. Nancy & Bob were very nice & we hope to return so we can see more of Burlington. Just not during an ice storm.


Willis Graves B & B...Expectations Exceeded.

5 on March 12, 2014

Just completed a quick one night stay in honor of our wedding anniversary and could not have been more pleased. The owners and staff were wonderful and made us feel at home right away. We stayed in the William Rouse Suite, which was the perfect blend of historical 1850s cabin, and modern luxury. Breakfast was a treat featuring an amazing culinary experience topped off with lively conversation with staff and other guests. I give Willis Graves B&B my highest recommendation.


Romantic relaxation getaway.

4.8 on March 04, 2014

A beautiful location for a bed and breakfast. A very romantic getaway.


Such a Great Experience!

5 on February 26, 2014

What an amazing place! The food was outstanding, and the room was exceptional. And we loved the in-room espresso machine! This is probably the best place in the Tri-State! My wife and I will be back!


A much needed get-a-way with my wife!!!

4.8 on February 20, 2014

Fantastic food, relaxing environment and exceptional service are just a few phrases to describe our time at Burlington's Willis Graves Bed & Breakfast. We arrived several hours late...driving through a snow storm and Nancy was waiting up for us. She never made us feel we were putting her out, but was the standard for hospitality. We have been to many B&Bs, but this is head and shoulders above the rest. It hasn't even been a week since we left and we are planning our next stay there...and the anticipation is great!


always a good time

5 on January 29, 2014

This is our third time staying with Nancy & Bob. They always provide good service. The room that we stayed in was very clean & tidy. No complaints here. We love staying here & will be back again.


My stay at Willis Graves B& B

5 on January 25, 2014

Beautiful accommodations, very helpful innkeepers, and the crème brulee French toast was delicious!

Nice place to stay

4.0 on January 13, 2014

Enjoyed the stay


Quick Getaway- such a retreat

5 on January 06, 2014

We stayed in the Willis-Graves Retreat in the Log Cabin and it was truly a retreat. The bed was comfortable and the double spa tub was so relaxing. And when they say "extensive DVD collection" they mean it! There is truly something for everyone! It was a fantastic stay with very kind innkeepers! Couldn't be more pleased with my stay!


The Best Bed & Breakfast I Have Ever Stayed At!

5 on December 16, 2013

My husband and I have stayed at several Select Registry Bed and Breakfasts, but this one is, by far, the best! The breakfast was wonderful! I can't wait to go back!


Cozy and Memorable

5 on December 04, 2013

The perfect respite. Cozy and delightful. Delicious breakfast. Nancy is the perfect hostess. .


Wanted to stay longer

4.4 on December 02, 2013

So comfortable and cozy, woke up to a dusting of snow. It was picture perfect. I just wished we had another day to stay cozy in front of the fire.


Great stay!

4.8 on December 02, 2013

This was our second stay and was just as lovely as the first. It is a great getaway for us, not too long of a drive and there is a good deal to do in the area. Nancy is full of information to help select where to go and where to eat.


Relaxing, cozy, comfortable, welcoming...

4.8 on November 24, 2013

Loved my stay! From the moment I walked into the door I felt welcomed and relaxed. The bed was one of the most comfortable I have ever slept in and breakfast each morning was delicious and very filling! I will definitely be back the first chance I get!


Wonderful room and InnKeeper

5 on November 21, 2013

Wonderful relaxing vacation. Breakfast was Yummy and we didn't need lunch. Just had breakfast and an early dinner each day.


Great find!

4.4 on November 18, 2013

Now one of our favorite places to stay. Recommended restaurant was excellent and everything was perfect.


Perfect 2 night getaway!

5 on November 17, 2013

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!


We Will Return!

5 on November 14, 2013

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!


All around great experience

5 on November 13, 2013

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.


Amazing as always

5 on November 12, 2013

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.


Excellent B&B

4.6 on November 08, 2013

I took my fiance for her birthday. Had a massage therapist come to the cabin for her massage. Then dinner at Tousey House. Great experience and service was outstanding.


21st Anniversary celebrataion

4.4 on November 06, 2013

My husband and I celebrated our 21st wedding anniversary last weekend here and loved every minute of it. I felt like a new person when I left. At first I was a little bummed that there was nothing to do in town but in the end was thrilled because we left feeling refreshed and relaxed. Bob and Nancy have thought of everything- top notch service!!!


Quaint

4.8 on November 06, 2013

Breakfast was excellent and the service was great!


Amazing! Can't wait to go back!

5 on November 04, 2013

My husband and I stayed here on the night of our wedding. Nancy was very welcoming, warm, and friendly. We stayed in the William Rouse Retreat room, and it was perfect. Everything was super clean and spotless. It looked brand new! We loved LOVED everything about this place, and we can't wait to go back. We are going to be staying in the same room for our one year wedding anniversary next year.


Great Place

4.6 on October 30, 2013

We had a wonderful time!! Service and food was excellent. Would highly recommend to anyone.


Cabin getaway

4.6 on October 29, 2013

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!


Met Us At The Door

5 on October 28, 2013

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


Time Just For Me

5 on October 26, 2013

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.


A Surprise Birthday Getaway

5 on October 22, 2013

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.


Highly recommend

5 on October 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.


Top Notch!

5 on October 21, 2013

Bob & Nancy provide a great escape back in time with all of the amenities of today including great hospitality!


Fabulicious Get Away

A Wonderful Stay

4.8 on October 08, 2013

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.


The best bed & breakfast in which I've stayed to date without question

5 on October 07, 2013

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.


Always the same..GREAT!!

5 on October 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!


Burlington's Willis Graves B and B Inn

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


great time

Everything was better than expected. and we will be back.


peaceful getaway

4.6 on September 10, 2013

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.


A Blessed Overnighter!

5 on August 25, 2013

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!


Willis Graves B & B

3.2 on August 21, 2013

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.

Innkeeper Response
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


Perfect anniversary getaway!

5 on August 20, 2013

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.


Excellent Stay (again)!

5 on August 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!


Third Time Back

4.8 on August 05, 2013

Our third visit to this bed and breakfast was just as nice as the previous two. It is why we return each year.


Wonderful B&B

5 on August 05, 2013

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


Best B&B ever!

5 on July 30, 2013

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.

Anniversary stay at Burlington's Willis Graves B & B

5 on July 30, 2013

We enjoyed our accommodations at Will Graves B & B. the room was very clean and cozy. The setting outdoors was full of tranquility and beauty. Breakfast was delicious and the staff was very courteous.


Second visit and loved it this time too.

4.6 on July 29, 2013

One of the best


FIRST CLASS BED & BREAKFAST

5 on July 28, 2013

My wife and I had a wonderful time staying there. The suite was wonderful, from the cookies on the bed to the wine glasses, very romantic. The breakfast outstanding, the staff and service was first class. We both highly recommend Burlington's Willis Graves Bed & Breakfast Inn.


Lovely experience!

4.8 on July 28, 2013

We stayed in the Graves Suite. It was immaculate and we enjoyed every second! The innkeepers were very accomodating!


33rd Anniversary Gift to Ourselves

4.8 on July 27, 2013

The food was delicious, the staff was very helpful and friendly, and the suite was so comfortable and clean. We would highly recommend this bed and breakfast and would love to come back again.


Great Owners!

4.2 on July 25, 2013

Secluded, yet very convenient. Stayed here for our wedding night and we did not regret this. We plan on going back often - great find!


Best B&B Ever !

5 on July 25, 2013

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.


Best B&B I have stayed at. Hands down.

5 on July 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.


Historic Charm

4.0 on July 22, 2013

Nice historic place, very well maintained, great staff and a memorable experience. Would stay there again if travels take me to this area and would certainly recommend it to others.


Loved our Stay

5 on July 21, 2013

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!


Honeymooning

4.8 on July 18, 2013

My husband and I definitely enjoyed our visit. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful, the room was beautiful and had a relaxing atmosphere about it. We even timed our stay right because we had a fantastic view of the IHM Festival fireworks show that night. This B&B is definitely going to have us back there again every year.


Extremely enjoyable

4.8 on July 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.


Burlington Willis Graves

4.6 on July 12, 2013

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.


Can't wait to make a return visit!

5 on July 11, 2013

Great location, great room & great food!


Relaxing Retreat

5 on July 08, 2013

We stayed cabin and loved it- not sure I was going to be able to fish husband out of bathtub for some sight seeing. Comfortable beds, amazing staff and mouth watering breakfast make this a must make time for trip in our busy lives. Thanks to Nancy and Bob for creating a little slice of heaven.


Burlington's Willis Graves Bed & Breakfast Inn

5 on June 30, 2013

We had a fabulous stay. The staff was great, the breakfast fantastic. Our room was beautiful, creatively decorated and clean.


Excellent B/B

5 on June 25, 2013

We had a wonderful visit at Willis Graves B/B! Highly recommend the William Rouse cabin; it was perfect! Keep up the good work, Nancy and Bob! Tell Mr. three-paws we miss him! Brian and Laine Tousey Greensboro, NC


Home away from home!!

5 on June 23, 2013

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!


Willis Graves B&B Review

4.4 on June 22, 2013

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!


Willis Graves B&B Burlington, KY

4.8 on June 22, 2013

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


Second stay

5 on June 13, 2013

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.


Everything was wonderful, clean, beautiful and the food was excellent!

5 on June 13, 2013

We stayed in the William Rouse Retreat, This was our second visit and it was even better than we remembered. Everything is done to perfection and the breakfast is so amazing!


Great Bed & Breakfast

3.8 on June 10, 2013

Very enjoyable stay, very clean, excellent breakfast, excellent hosts.


Amazing B&B - Could not have been better!

5 on June 05, 2013

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!


Sweetest Berry in the Briars

4.6 on June 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.


Wonderful Experience

5 on May 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.


Simply superb

5 on May 21, 2013

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.


Wow!

5 on May 17, 2013

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.


best in country

5 on May 14, 2013

My wife and I have stayed at many bed and breadfast inns in our travels... and this inn is definitely the best. It is at the top because of the quality of their accommodations, the kind hospitality of their service and delicious excellence of their food. Do not miss this experience!


Awesome 1st experience at B&B

5 on May 04, 2013

The stay was relaxing and warm. Nancy was quite helpful for info about the area. Thank you!


Nice B&B.

3.8 on May 01, 2013

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.


Burlington's Willis Graves B&B

4.2 on April 30, 2013

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.


so relaxing

5 on April 29, 2013

A relaxing place to stay. There is a lot to do in the area. We have stayed four times in the past two years and plan to go back again.


BEST B&B WITH THE BEST OWNER!

5 on April 24, 2013

We had yet another fantastic stay at Nancy's B&B...love this place!


Anniversary Stay

5 on April 23, 2013

The room was amazing and the Creme Brule French Toast was fantastic. I would recommend this to anyone and everyone.


Perfect treasure

4.6 on April 20, 2013

Lovely facility, room upgraded for no additional charge for our two night stay, hosts were attentive and friendly. Awesome breakfast and we would stay here again!! Nice and close to the Creation Museum in Petersburg, KY. Kiwi's in Florida.


Wonderful Cabin Retreat

5 on April 15, 2013

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.


Delightful All Around

4.8 on April 08, 2013

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!


The Best

5 on April 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.


Heaven in Burlington

5 on April 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!


Outstanding Birthday Getaway

5 on April 03, 2013

We were in the cabin excellent accommadations, next time we will have to stay longer.


Perfect, as always

5 on March 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.


So pleasant!

4.8 on March 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.


Outstanding!!!!

5 on March 12, 2013

From the lovely rooms to the personal service received, Burligrave was amazing! Would love to stay there again at some point.


SPECTACULAR first B&B experience!!

5 on March 11, 2013

Staying at Willis Graves was an amazing first bed and breakfast experience. From the antiques to the homemade chocolate chip cookies to the dinner suggestions, everything was spot on. Nancy and Bob were friendly and very, very helpful. I would recommend Willis Graves to anyone and everyone!


Wonderful Inn!

4.6 on February 27, 2013

My husband and I just returned from a long weekend stay at the Willis Graves Inn - it was wonderful! Our room (Mr. & Mrs. Graves Suite) was spacious and comfortable, the service was friendly, and the breakfast was delicious. We are hoping to return soon.


Birthday getaway

5 on February 20, 2013

My husband and I have made several visits to Willis Graves Bed and Breakfast. We are never disappointed! The Inn keepers do not let any detail go unnoticed! So clean, cozy and romantic!


Blew up away!

5 on February 20, 2013

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!!


What a wonderful and memorable stay!

5 on February 19, 2013

We truly were delighted with this beautiful property and the delicious breakfast. Though we were only 2 hours from home, we felt like we were a world away. We are looking forward to our next visit to Burlingtons Willis Graves! Peter and Kathie Turke


Perfect alternative to a hotel!

5 on February 17, 2013

With a warm staff, a beautifully appointed room, and spectacular marmalade cream cheese French toast, my stay at Burlington Willis far exceeded a comparably priced hotel. I'll certainly be back next time I'm in Cincinnati for business.


The Perfect Little Getaway

4.4 on February 16, 2013

Unexpectedly amazing food and elegant cozy rooms!


Excellent getaway

4.4 on February 15, 2013

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.


First Time B&B

5 on February 12, 2013

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.


Excellent B&B!!

4.8 on February 03, 2013

The room was beautiful and so cozy. The breakfast in the morning was out of this world! I would definitely recommend this B&B!


My Favorite B&B!

5 on January 31, 2013

We have stayed at multiple B&Bs, but we continue to return to Burlington's Willis Graves. We absolutely love the rooms, hospitality, breakfast, etc etc. I can't praise them highly enough.


Will definetely return!

5 on January 30, 2013

Stayed in the "cozy" room. It was perfect!!! The staff was wonderfully accomodating!


Great Place...Excellent Hospitality!

4.8 on January 25, 2013

Just needed to stay one night in Norther Kentucky and Willis Graves hit the spot. Large rooms and great amenities. Breakfast was very good as well. Would highly recommend!


A True Memory Maker!

5 on January 22, 2013

We enjoyed every moment at Willis Graves B&B. The staff was cheerful, informative and helpful. The other customers were also friendly--maybe they took a cue from the hosts!


Perfect gateway with amazing breakfast

5 on January 18, 2013

Can't wait to come back


Perfect

5 on January 09, 2013

Could not have been a better place for our wedding. So nice we plan to return for our anniversary.


Another Excellent Stay!

5 on December 19, 2012

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!


3rd times the charm

5 on December 12, 2012

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


Perfect Getaway

5 on December 10, 2012

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.


It's Perfect

5 on December 09, 2012

It's perfect, it's always perfect...the cabin is perfect. Nancy's gingerbread pancakes and orange marmalade french toast are to die for. Did I mention that it's perfect?


Excellent

4.8 on December 05, 2012

We had a wonderful weekend at the Willis Graves B & B. It was a very romantic and rustic setting, which we greatly enjoyed. The service was fantastic and the food was excellent. We will be going back.


Divine Relaxation!

4.8 on November 25, 2012

We were made to feel so very welcomed into this lovely home. From the time our hostess, Mary, greeted us until the time we departed we were "pampered" & made to feel like we were personal friends or family visiting this lovely home!


Gary and Cathy

4.6 on November 23, 2012

On a quick get-away for a needed respit we found Willis Graves B&B to be an great value and close to a miriad of activities to fill our day. Great Job!


Warm & Welcoming!

4.2 on November 14, 2012

We were warmly welcomed by Nancy and given an excellent suggestion for Dinner. Our room was nicely decorated with warm cookies waiting for us. There is a large selection of DVDs to choose from if you want to relax with a movie. Breakfast was fantastic and quite filling, the perfect start to the day along with many sightseeing suggestions from the hosts. We plan on visiting again and staying longer next time!


We'll Be Back

5 on November 06, 2012

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.


My Favorite

4.6 on November 04, 2012

This is the sixth time for us at the Willis Graves and it is a beautiful experience each time.


Can't wait to return.

5 on November 02, 2012

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.


Better than Expected!

5 on October 28, 2012

I had high expectations.... but this wonderful B&B exceeded them in every way possible.


Burlington's Best

5 on October 17, 2012

This is our second time and Willis Graves B&B and I forsee this being a annual trip. The locale appeals to all ages, etc. You have the aspects of the city but the quietness and serenity of the country. From shoppers to hikers, all can be found. The facility is excellent and worth every penny. The staff is wonderful and it is always a pleasure to stay!


Great place, will visit again.

5 on October 15, 2012

This charming B&B will be one of our annual visits. The room, food and hospitality from the staff was outstanding.


one night stay

5 on October 01, 2012

wonderful hostess, clean,clean,clean room and delicious breakfast. Would definitely recommend this place.....excellent value!


Great Stay

5 on October 01, 2012

This place was in a beautiful spot. The room and food were excellent. I enjoyed the variety of breakfast dishes that we had, healthful and filling. The owners were helpful in finding things to do around the small town of Burlington and places nearby. Loved the quilt store across the road!


our kentucky weekend

5 on September 26, 2012

our stay could not have been better !! The bed was so comfortable the room could not have been cleaner and the food was wonderful Add a very impressive hostess to make a great weekend Thank you so much Nancy and Mary !!


"Best Ever Room"

5 on September 20, 2012

My wife and I stay at B&B's about 6 times per year and this was the best by far. Although we have stayed in some more scenic areas we have never had a room this nice and this clean. The real authentic log cabin combines old world charm and decor with modern and comfortable amenities. It is very very nice!!


ANOTHER WONDERFUL VISIT

5 on September 17, 2012

This was my second stay and it was just as great as the first time. The room was gorgeous and everything was perfect as ecpected. Nancy and her staff were so gracious and awesome as ever. I cannot wait to come visit again and stay for more than just one night! Thank you again for everything!


Dream Date

4.8 on September 17, 2012

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.


Great B & B and location

5 on September 16, 2012

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.


Awesome experience

5 on September 10, 2012

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.


Wonderful bed and breakfast

5 on September 10, 2012

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.


Rest and Relaxation was the name of the game!!!

5 on September 04, 2012

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


Beautiful and comfortable

5 on September 03, 2012

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.


Food was fantastic but expected more from room.

3.6 on August 27, 2012

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.

Innkeeper Response
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


Just what we needed!

4.8 on August 27, 2012

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.


A wonderful anniversary stay

5 on August 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!


Great Place

5 on August 20, 2012

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


Nice place to stay

3.8 on August 16, 2012

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.


The benchmark for perfect hospitality

5 on August 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.


Anniversary Stay #2

4.4 on August 04, 2012

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!


Couldn't be better

4.8 on July 24, 2012

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.


Willis Graves: Beautiful rooms, great people, pancakes that trump all else

5 on July 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.


The Best B&B to date!

5 on July 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!


Best B&B ever!

5 on July 17, 2012

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


Just as Good

4.6 on July 13, 2012

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.


Our 40th Birthday Get-Away

4.6 on July 11, 2012

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.


Yet another stay!

5 on July 08, 2012

This was our 6th visit to WG ... passing throgh on a vacation trip. The service and ambiance have always been top notch ... we B&B often ... this one is our favorite!


Willis Graves was an excellent place to stay. Old fashioned decor with modern amenities

4.4 on July 07, 2012

We loved staying at the Willis graves B&B. Loved the decor and cleanliness. Breakfast was delicious. I also really liked the modern spa tub and steam shower. You had the comfort of home but felt like you were back in the past. It was a wonderful retreat away from the kids.


Birthday Surprise stay......

4.4 on June 25, 2012

Our recent stay at this B & B was great! This stay was a surprise gift for my husband. We were delighted with the cabin suite and all its great amenities. The staff and breakfasts were excellent! We will definitely recommend this B & B to our friends.......


Stay at Willis Graves B & B Burlington, KY

5 on June 24, 2012

Our experience was fantastic and would recommend this B & B to anyone Scott & Lisa


Peaceful perfection

5 on June 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.


will go back again

5 on June 15, 2012

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


Willis Graves B & B

5 on June 13, 2012

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.


Nothing disappointing about THIS place!

4.8 on June 12, 2012

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!


Willis Grave's B&B~ worth the trip!

5 on June 10, 2012

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.


My Wonderful Long Weekend

5 on June 09, 2012

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.


Perfect Experience at Burlington Willis Graves B&B

5 on May 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!


Willis Graves review

5 on May 30, 2012

Excellent establishment close to Cincinnati


Great Experience

4.4 on May 28, 2012

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.


Great getaway

5 on May 28, 2012

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.


Graves Suite: Our second time here!

4.8 on May 25, 2012

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!


Absolutely perfect. We would return in a second.

5 on May 23, 2012

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.


Anniversary Get Away

4.4 on May 21, 2012

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.


Wonderful place to stay

4.6 on May 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.


Exquisite escape!

5 on May 10, 2012

Our stay was met with every detail accounted for.


A Stay in May

5 on May 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.


Happy Honeymooners

5 on May 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.


Great get away if even for just a night!

4.4 on May 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.


Bed and breakfasts from now on.

5 on April 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.


A Great Stay!

5 on April 26, 2012

This was our 4th visit and every bit as good and wonderful as the other three! I highly recommend.


The nicest b&b we've ever stayed at.

5 on April 23, 2012

Very nice owners and the cleanest place we've ever stayed at. Staying here is a must if you're in the area!


Amazing as usual!

5 on April 21, 2012

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!


Wonderful Kentucky Hospitality

5 on April 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.


A perfect getaway!

5 on April 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!


Awesome time at Burlington Willis Graves

4.8 on April 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.


Anniversary trip

5 on March 14, 2012

Amazing Stay! What a great place to celebrate our one year anniversary trip! Thanks again for a great stay. Third time staying and still amazing!


4-7 Mar 2012

5 on March 10, 2012

OUTSTANDING, from check in to check out, room was fantastic, breakfast was out of this world and Nancy and staff could not have been better....will be going back again soon


A wonderful stay!

5 on February 26, 2012

My husband and I have been to many, and this was amazing for the price! HIGHLY recommend the cabin room- the jacuzzi tub can't be beat!


Wonderful getaway!

4.8 on February 18, 2012

My husband and I planned a short getaway to the Cincinnati area. Our stay at Willis Graves was simply wonderful! Nancy was so friendly and accommodating and made us feel at home. Our cabin suite was comfy,yet had all the amenities we could ask for! Thanks for a relaxing stay and we look forward to returning!


Awesome!

4.0 on February 06, 2012

What a wonderful night away. The bed was Most comfortable and the breakfast was fantastic. The entire experience was so special and Nancy and Bob were the perfect hosts. Carrie L.


Exceptional!

4.8 on February 01, 2012

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!


January Stay

4.6 on February 01, 2012

Our room was beautiful and the breakfast was delicious! I loved having the option to choose from a breakfsast menu.


Our Favorite Getaway!

4.6 on January 23, 2012

This has become our favorite getaway! It's not far from where we live, Bob and Nancy make you feel like old friends and go the extra mile to make your stay comfortable. The cookies waiting on your pillow are a nice touch.


THE Best place to stay in the Cincinnati Northern KY area

5 on January 09, 2012

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. Everything was perfect from the homemade chocolate chip cookies when we arrived to the last drop of coffee as we headed out the door. We didn't want to leave & can't wait to stay again! Liz Boyd & Kent Laycock, League City, TX


Wonderful B & B!

5 on January 06, 2012

I love this property! We have stayed at Willis Graves three times now, and plan to visit again. I love the food!!


Best & Most Romantic Stay

4.0 on January 04, 2012

My husband and I chose this B&B because it had everything we wanted: Fireplace, privacy, HUGE tub, seperate steam shower, private porch, and romance. 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


Great Anniversary Weekend

5 on December 21, 2011

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.


An outstanding experience!

4.8 on December 07, 2011

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!


Great place for a romantic getaway!

4.6 on December 06, 2011

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.


A getaway to heaven

5 on December 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.


Great Room!

4.0 on December 05, 2011

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.


Homey and welcoming

4.6 on November 29, 2011

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). Proprietors were very friendly and helpful, and the room was pleasant - roomy and warm, and the bed extremely comfortable. Would definitely stay again if ever in the area.


Honeymoon getaway

5 on November 28, 2011

Superb experience. Will definitely return for anniversaries. The right price with exceptional value. Loved our experience. Thank you for making our honeymoon something we will remember forever.


amazing find

5 on November 22, 2011

Perfect!, luxurious privacy, rejuvenating...delicious breakfast and good recommendations for dining, exploring.


Had a wonderful stay

4.4 on November 15, 2011

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.


Best romantic getaway EVER!!!

5 on November 09, 2011

Far exceeded our expectations .no sooner than getting back on the freeway home, we were making plans for our stay for next year. We would recommend this place to our friends but we don't want to compete with them when we are looking for dates open..ha


Best Value in Town

5 on November 03, 2011

Our third sty at Burlington Willis Graves. You could not ask for a more congenial and acoomodating Inn Keeper. Nancy goes that extra mile to help you find what you are looking for and the accomodations are second to none. Certainly a great value for the money! We look forward to our next stay.


Burlington's Willis Graves Bed and Breakfast Inn

5 on November 02, 2011

Oustanding service! Great Breakfast and Hospitality! My wife can't wait to come back next year for our Anniversary! Special thanks too Nancy!


Another great stay!!

4.0 on October 31, 2011

My wife and I stayed at Burlington's Willis Graves Bed & Breakfast on the weekend of Oct 14th and had another great evening in the town, and a great breakfast. They do a GREAT job, and this place is certainly a step above the rest!!


Delightful respite

4.8 on October 26, 2011

Beautiful furnishings. Outstanding gourmet breakfasts each day. Serene and peaceful.


Anniversary

5 on October 16, 2011

The property was immaculate, the staff was warm and cordial, the food was outstanding and our stay was restful, we plan on returning!


Awesome!

5 on October 05, 2011

We stayed on the second floor of the log cabin for a couple of nights. The place is very clean, warm, and inviting. Breakfast was delicious! Everyone we met was very nice and friendly. We plan to visit again next year!


WONDERFUL GETAWAY!

5 on September 25, 2011

We love coming to Willis Graves---it is such an amazing place to get away and relax! Everything is beautiful and clean and you will feel so pampered and spoiled! Nancy and her staff are professional, friendly and the food is simply amazing---we really couldn't recommend it highly enough!


A Kentucky Vacation

5 on September 20, 2011

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.


anniversary stay

4.4 on September 17, 2011

Lovely and romantic inn. It was a quick overnight retreat for our 27th wedding anniversary. Would love to stay there again. Creme Brulee french toast was wonderful.


Best B&B!

5 on September 08, 2011

I have stayed at this bed and breakfast four times over the last four years and each time exceeds my expectations. Great customer service, accommodations, breakfast, etc. etc. I have recommended this B&B to several friends and family members - First Rate!


Relaxing weekend

4.6 on September 07, 2011

Nice relaxing weekend with great accommodations, service, and friendly staff for our 42nd anniversary.


A gem in northern Kentucky!

4.6 on September 05, 2011

We received a stay at this B&B as a gift and it was wonderful. The service was amazing, the food was amazing, and it was an incredibly relaxing stay! We'd definitely recommend it to friends and consider staying again!


wonderful experience

4.8 on September 05, 2011

Very relaxing, delicious breakfast, great attention to detail. Would highly recommend.


Eye Candy Paradise

4.8 on September 04, 2011

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!


William Rouse Suite

4.0 on August 31, 2011

The cabin suite was fantastic.Nancy and Margaret made us feel at home. Breakfast was great.The dining area in the main house is cozy and relaxing.


Couldn't have asked for anything better.

5 on August 23, 2011

This was our first stay at a B & B. It was the most wonderful experience. The Inn keepers were so friendly and accommodating. The suite was immaculate. Breakfast was spectacular. We felt like royalty.


A Wonderful Stay!

3.4 on August 15, 2011

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.


This is a 5-star b&b!

4.4 on August 11, 2011

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.


The Best...

5 on August 09, 2011

Burlington Willis is simply the best! From the reservation to check out! We have stayed at several Band B's, but nothing stands out like B.W. Thank you for all the wonderful stays.... Pam and Mike


Wonderful Stay in the Retreat Room

5 on August 03, 2011

We had a wonderful weekend stay in the Retreat Room. The bathroom was like a spa with the air jet tub and steam shower. The room was very comfortable and relaxing. Nancy is delightful and her breakfast is out of this world. We also had dinner down the road at the Tousey House and it was excellent. We look forward to staying again in the future.


HONEYMOONERS

5 on August 02, 2011

My husband and I stayed here on our honeymoon. It was absolutely amazing. The rooms far exceeded our expectations, the food to was delicious, and the staff was great. We will be returning and are hoping to make it our yearly honeymoon getaway. We loved it so much we even bought my parents a night stay so they could experience the relaxation we did. You will love this Bed and Breakfast!


Just Married!

4.0 on July 28, 2011

We stayed here the night of our wedding and couldn't have asked for anything better. The room was great, and the staff was very nice. Breakfast was amazing! Nancy even made a special breakfast for us :)


"Staycation"

3.8 on July 27, 2011

Nancy was most accommodating and informative. Their extensive collection of DVDs was nice. Breakfast was truly outstanding; it's rare that a B&B offers multiple choices on breakfast entrees, and there were several good choices.


Great Stay

5 on July 24, 2011

Great Stay at the Willis Graves B & B! The inn keepers gave us great ideas for fun daytime activities (hint: don't miss the drive to Rabit Hash!). Breakfast sooo good! Room - perfect and loved the colored lights in the jacuzzi bath tub - makes for pink/blue/green bubbles! Perfect - would stay there again!


Our Favorite Get-a-way!!

4.6 on July 22, 2011

My husband and I have celebrated every wedding anniversary here at the Burlington's Willis Graves Bed and Breakfast! We always feel extra pampered by Nancy, the innkeeper, and her staff. There was great attention to detail paid to every aspect of our stay from the homemade cookies upon arrival, to the Italian hand soap to the luxurious linens and robes. As always, this stay exceeded our expectations!


wonderful stay

4.0 on July 21, 2011

this was a wonderful time for my wife and i, taking our last big break before we have our second child in october. funny thing is we did the same thing two years ago at the same place when we were having our first son. we love it at willis and graves


Tranquility at it's best

5 on July 13, 2011

It's always such a treat to get to return to Willis Graves. The Innkeepers, the grounds, the accommodations, and the food are extraordinary. It's as if you step into a little fantasy world and forget about the real world. It's immaculate, luxurious, friendly, and relaxing. I just can't say enough about this little piece of heaven!


Two Night Retreat

4.4 on July 11, 2011

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.


Can't Wait to Return

5 on July 06, 2011

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.


Favorite B&B

4.8 on June 21, 2011

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.


A memorable experience

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


Beautiful, relaxing, friendly

5 on June 20, 2011

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.


Wonderful Weekend Get-a-wa

5 on June 16, 2011

Very friendly owners and staff, nicely decorated rooms, relaxing atmosphere and absolutely wonderful breakfast. First rate and very reasonably priced.


Wonderful getaway.

5 on June 13, 2011

The upstairs cabin suite is beyond cool. Great place for relaxation and romance. My wife and I have already recommended it to three couples in our circle of friends.


Wonderful Experience!!!

4.8 on June 13, 2011

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.


Blown away

4.8 on June 06, 2011

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


Enjoy the ambience

4.8 on June 02, 2011

Lovely rooms, succulent cuisine, friendly hosts. No I don't write reviews for a living. Just a regular guy with his wife on his anniversary who can honestly say "my highest recommendation". Enjoy the ambience. Enjoy. Rich & Jan


Good people, great food!!

3.8 on June 01, 2011

Always Outstanding

4.8 on May 24, 2011

This was the third trip to the Willis Graves B&B and it never fails to disappoint. We stayed in the log cabin suite and it is now our favorite room. It was a perfect way to celebrate our anniversary.


Outstanding B&B !

5 on May 22, 2011

Our stay was outstanding in every way. We stayed in the log cabin and it was such a delight that I hated to leave for home. We still dream about the breakfasts each morning with the Creme Brule french toast being our favorite. A great experience!


My thoughts on Willis Graves B & B

4.8 on May 22, 2011

the food was fabulous. Our hosts were wonderful.the room was a dream. the grounds clean and beautiful


Will Be Back

5 on May 20, 2011

My wife and I found this B&B searching the internet and decided to try it out. We have never stayed at a B&B before, and this wont be our last time. We really enjoyed our stay; the room was great, and the food was great.


Comfort and Hospitality

5 on May 19, 2011

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.


Perfection

5 on May 15, 2011

Staying at the Burlington's Willis graves Bed & Breakfast is like visiting a good friend. The rooms are beautifully decorated, bed linens are top quality, breakfast outstanding and Nancy makes you feel welcome and at home the moment you arrive.


Value for Money

4.0 on May 02, 2011

A very pleasant experience in a well kept Inn. We would not hesitate to return in the future.


One of the very best B&B's we've stayed at.

5 on May 01, 2011

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.


Rainy week-end!

4.8 on April 27, 2011

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.


Lovely and Welcoming!

4.4 on April 25, 2011

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!


Wonderful Get Away

5 on April 24, 2011

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.


Wonderful Experience!

5 on April 23, 2011

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


WOW

5 on April 20, 2011

Our stay at Burlington's Willis Graves B&B is always a wonderful experience from the wonderful rooms to the delightful breakfast. Nancy and Bob and their staff are the consumate host and hostess. John and Linda Birdcell


Breakfast was outstanding.

4.6 on April 06, 2011

The highlight of our stay was the breakfast that would rival anything you'd get in a four star hotel. The staff was very nice and made sure that all of our needs were being met. One of the nicest places we've ever stayed and we look forward to returning!


Burlington Willis Inn

4.2 on April 05, 2011

This bed and breakfast is clean, the breakfast is superb, and the hosts are very informative and accommodating. We will return sometime in the future.


Another Perfect Getaway

5 on April 03, 2011

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.


Wonderful place to stay and relax

4.8 on March 23, 2011

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!


Wonderful stay

5 on March 17, 2011

Recommended by a friend. Very clean and beautifully decorated. Very comfortable bed, quiet room, and great bathroom. Breakfast - amazing! Must try the creme brulee french toast and the gingerbread pancakes. Would definitely go back! Good food at the Tousey House down the street.


Romantic Getaway

4.0 on March 15, 2011

My husbnnd and I wanted to get away, close to home for just a single night. We stayed at the inn, and had a wonderful dinner at the nearby Tousey House. Everything was perfect and we came home rested and refreshed!


Wonderful stay

4.8 on March 12, 2011

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.


I WILL BE BACK!

4.6 on March 09, 2011

We LOVED our stay at Willis Graves B&B. Truly the service was outstanding!!! The room was gorgeous and peaceful and the FOOD was SUPER YUMMY- and PLENTY of it! :)


Northern KY gem!

4.6 on February 25, 2011

What an incredible get-away not too far from Cincinnati. Nancy was the perfect host, and the breakfast was absolutely incredible. The room was gorgeous and wonderful for a weekend getaway. We will definitely return!


Burlington's Willis Graves Bed&Breakfast

5 on February 23, 2011

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


The perfect getaway

5 on February 09, 2011

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.


Outstanding

5 on February 06, 2011

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.


Another Great Weekend!

4.8 on January 24, 2011

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!


Wonderful Get Away

4.0 on January 24, 2011

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...


Willis Graves Bed & Breakfast

4.6 on January 18, 2011

This was our first stay at a Bed & Breakfast. Now we can't wait for our next stay!


Wonderful B&B getaway!

4.8 on January 15, 2011

We absolutely enjoyed our stay at the Willis Graves B&B. It was the perfect little retreat for my husband and I. We enjoyed dining at the Tousey House and the breakfast at the inn was wonderful. The room was beautiful and so cozy. We will be back for sure!


January getaway-gift

5 on January 14, 2011

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.


the title of my review

5 on January 11, 2011

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.


Willis Graves B & B - log cabin suite - anniversary retreat!

5 on January 07, 2011

The innkeeper was very pleasant and accommodating, offering suggestions and little extras. Our room was beautifully appointed with carefully chosen decor, fabulous bedding and a luxurious bathroom. Breakfast was delicious and the dining room was delightful with lovely linens and table ware.


Amazing Anniversary Trip

4.8 on January 03, 2011

We spent most of the days walking around downtown Cincinnati (only 20 minutes away), and then drove back to our cozy room in the log cabin. It was awesome! Very romantic for our 5th anniversary! Couldn't have enjoyed it more!


Burlington Graves B&B Review

5 on January 03, 2011

The stay, as always, was absolutely magnificent. I love the managers, the place, the environment...everything.


Stress free getaway

5 on January 02, 2011

Staying in the Log Cabin Suite was the perfect getaway for our wedding anniversary.


Slice of Heaven

5 on December 26, 2010

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.


Another great weekend retreat

5 on December 09, 2010

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.


Simply Amazing

5 on December 06, 2010

For the second year in the row we have made this our weekend get-away destination. It's a true retreat. The suite was fabulous, dinner at The Tousey House Tavern was excellent, and breakfast was to-die-for! Highly recommend this lovely B&B.


great get away weekend

4.0 on December 05, 2010

The hosts were gracious and very helpful in assisting us with activist off the beaten path in the area. A very enjoyable weekend.


Great B & B

5 on December 02, 2010

This was a return visit since we enjoyed it so much a couple of years ago. K & S


Nice Kentucky Weekend

4.4 on November 30, 2010

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).


I Want to Live Like This!

5 on November 29, 2010

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!! Becky V. Powell, OH


First B&B

4.4 on November 29, 2010

Victoria and I just wanted to do something that we hadn't done before and a Bed and Breakfast sounded great. Willis Graves B & B looked great. We had a great time and will definitely be back.


Great Little Getaway

4.8 on November 07, 2010

My wife and I celebrated our 5-year wedding anniversary by driving down from Cincinnati. It was a great stay at such a beautiful, historic building. Loved every minute of it. We'll certainly return.


Gem near Cincinnati

5 on November 06, 2010

Nancy and her team made me feel right at home. Wonderful inn, with outstanding comforts and a surprise jacuzzi tub. This weary traveler was able to recharge and rest up for a full day of activities in Cincinnati. Highly recommended!


Just the get away I needed!

4.6 on November 01, 2010

My stay at Willis Graves Bed and Breakfast was amazing. The room was very warm an inviting I felt right at home!! And there's plenty of things to do in the area. Andre Taylor


Frequent Business Traveler

5 on November 01, 2010

I frequently stay at the Burlington Willis Graves B&B while on business. Feels a lot more like home then the typical chain hotel. I would highly recommend a visit.


A very nice B&B

4.0 on October 26, 2010

The Willis Graves is a very nice place. We found our room to be very clean and comfortable. The breakfast choices were all very good and Nancy made us feel very welcome. We would definitely stay here again.


A lovely memory of my stay

5 on October 24, 2010

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.


Could not ask for more!!

5 on October 18, 2010

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!!


This B & B is one of the best

5 on October 14, 2010

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


Great Anniversary

5 on October 07, 2010

One night stay for anniversary...very special, loved the little town of Burlington and especially the Tousey House. Would definitely stay again!


Impeccable B&B - A true resort for the soul

4.4 on September 27, 2010

Burlington's Willis Graves B&B truly exceeded our expectations, thinking of every possible need and then going above and beyond - providing accommodations that will ensure our return!


Our September Stay

4.4 on September 26, 2010

We had an enjoyable night and morning at Willis Graves. The house is wonderfully decorated and although the owners were out-of-town, Katherine was an exceptional hostess and breakfast was delicious.


Hope to return

5 on September 06, 2010

We enjoyed our two day stay. Spent the first night in the Log Cabin Suite and the second in the Retreat upstairs. Both are beautiful, we felt so comfortable. It was a very relaxing break on our hectic vacation. Breakfast was delicious! Nancy, Bob, and Margaret were so helpful. We hope to return.


Great Stay

4.8 on August 29, 2010

Our two-day stay was great. We will definitely return.


Stay at Willis Graves B&B

5 on August 20, 2010

Nancy and Bob have a wonderful place for us to "retreat" to. Thanks for making our stay enjoyable.


Can't wait to return!

5 on August 19, 2010

My husband and I stayed at the Willis Graves B and B for our 6th wedding anniversary. The Inn really was excellent. We stayed in the Graves suite. It was so clean, warm and relaxing. The spa bathroom was great. We can't wait to return for another special occasion!


Just like home...only better

4.8 on August 13, 2010

Nancy makes you feel at home right away. The cookies and breakfast were wonderful and the rooms clean and neat. It was much nicer than staying at a hotel...more like visiting family.


My Favorite B&B From Our Vacation

5 on July 20, 2010

Loved everything about our stay. So homey and comfortable. Wonderful breakfast.


One word: WOW

5 on July 15, 2010

My husband and I spent two nights in the cabin. We loved the rustic look and all the modern amenities. Breakfast was amazing. It was wonderful to come "home" each day to chocolate chip cookies.


Wonderful Experience

5 on June 01, 2010

Our honeymoon visit to Willis Graves was an incredible introduction to the pleasure of staying at a bed & breakfast. All aspects of our stay met or exceeded our hopes and expectations!


Finest Bed&Breakfast

5 on April 30, 2010

We spent the weekend for our anniversary. This is an amazing B&B with its 1830's charm. We have stayed at a number of B&B's, but this is the finest. The innkeeper Nancy and staff made us feel very much at home. The breakfasts were incredible! The inn has many nearby attractions, but yet a very quiet getaway. Loved the nearby Tousey House Tavern. We will definitely visit the Burlington Willis Graves inn again and not wait for a special event.


Wonderful Experience

5 on March 10, 2010

Great place, beautiful, rustic, every modern convenience. Great breakfast - Bob and Nancy are fabulous hosts.


Our second visit.

4.8 on February 13, 2010

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.


Warmth and Comfort

5 on January 30, 2010

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.


A Nice Place to Stay

3.6 on December 30, 2009

The inn was clean, neat and the staff...

Innkeeper Response
I recieved a guest review today and would love to recieve more information from the guest who sent the review.I'm not sure if the guest felt neglected or what.Any information that this guest is willing to share would helps us to see where we need improvement.


A Perfect Getaway

5 on December 21, 2009

My husband and I stayed only one night as a mini-break from our two small children. Everything was as beautiful as the pictures. The food was amazing and the people were incredibly friendly and helpful. The amenities were impressive as well. We were able to truly and deeply relax which was exactly what we needed. I only wish we could have stayed for a week!


Excellent B&B with rustic, authentic feel

5 on November 06, 2009

Converted from original log cabin, the B&B has character & luxurious details. Breakfast was excellent, comfy bed, & plenty of space. Recommended. Very close to Creation Museum


Just the BEST!

5 on November 03, 2009

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!


Enjoy the moment

4.8 on October 28, 2009

We needed a getaway to renew our relationship and celebrate 34 1/2 years of marriage. Willis Graves was homey, relaxing and totally enjoyable -- not too far from home for a few days away.


A Great Place to Rest

4.4 on October 07, 2009

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.


Burlington's Willis Graves Bed & Breakfast Inn

4.8 on October 01, 2009

Our stay was fantastic. Room was clean and immaculate. Provided breakfast--breakfast was gourmet and impressive. Owners were sweet and attentive. Would recommend and stay there again.


Great alternative to a hotel to attend an out of state wedding

5 on September 18, 2009

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.


Best quick getaway location!

5 on August 05, 2009

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.


Our favorite B & B to date...

5 on July 27, 2009

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. Early-American decor, wonderful, gracious service, outstanding breakfast; no complaints. Nancy treated us like family...


AMAZING!

Wonderful weekend getaway. Superb hospitality and a fantastic breakfast!


Outstanding in Every Way!

5 on March 30, 2009

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!

Peaceful night in Burlington

5 on January 13, 2009

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!


Great experience!

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.


Great Business stay

4.8 on November 13, 2008

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.


Anniversary celebration

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!


I will go back

4.8 on November 02, 2008

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.


A Fantastic Stay In Every Way!

4.8 on September 08, 2008

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!!


Our wonderful stay

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!


Absolutely wonderful.

I cannot say enough good things about this inn. Everything was wonderful. The room was top notch. The food was fantastic. We were thoroughly spoiled. I can't wait to come back soon.


Historical Escape

4.6 on July 04, 2008

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!


Great Time!

5 on May 29, 2008

My husband and I had an awesome time! The room was beautifully decorated and clean. The hospitality was unsurpassed, and breakfast was delicious.

Very nice in quiet setting. Log Cabin was quite unique. Will come back!


Looking forward to our 4th visit

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!

Located this b&b online, what a wonderful first experience. Friendly, helpful, charming, comfortable and luxurious accomodations.


We visit annually.

5 on May 15, 2007

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.


Anniversary Relaxation

5 on May 05, 2007

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.
