Murphin Ridge Inn

750 Murphin Ridge Road , West Union, OH 45693-9734 USA (Show map) Diamond Collection

Professionally Inspected & Certified Diamond Collection


Situated on the edge of the Appalachian foothills in Adams County, Ohio, the Murphin Ridge Inn and its surrounding 140 acres nestle you in the comfort of the countryside. No matter what the season, the Ridge is awash with color. The Inn offers a cozy stopping place in beautiful, natural surroundings. We invite you to explore our wooded trails and take along a picnic lunch prepared by our chef. Enjoy a game of tennis or relax by our seasonal pool. Read, nap, or play a game of croquet. If you must leave the Inn, take the short trip to historic Serpent Mound, the surrounding Amish community or other nearby attractions. As the sun sets, join us in our 1820s Farm House for dinner, where our chef prepares delicious, fresh regional cuisine. Then, when the candles dim, stroll back to the Guest House to read and chat with other guests in the great room or retire to one of our cozy, modern guest rooms, custom furnished by southern Ohio's master craftsman, David T. Smith. When the sun beckons, enjoy a full country breakfast in the Farm House before beginning another day. Murphin Ridge Inn is a perfect setting for creative work, writing, and conferences. We strive to cater to all our guests' needs. Whether you come for quiet or companionship, relaxation or inspiration, you will find it at Murphin Ridge Inn.

We had a room in one of the cabins. The room is very upscale, very intimate. There is no place to sit, other than on the tall bed or on one of the two comfy chairs. In good weather, it's also nice to sit on the rustic chairs or swing out on the porch. The glassed-in shower stall and the open jacuzzi mean that you and your partner will be on very inimate terms! The breakfast at the main building's indoor/outdoor dining area was wonderful.

Our First Time Visiting Murphin Inn

3.0 on August 31, 2016

Wonderful Wonderful B and B. Great Food, nice Inn Keepers, tons of things to do, great spacious cabins, already have dates on when we can return. The ONLY thing I would suggest is better markings on the Red Dog Trail. It was poorly marked and we got lost in the woods. After climbing thru poision ivy for about a half hour we finally got back on the trail that led us back... but it was rough for a short stint.

Innkeeper Response
Thanks for your review.......we are in the process of making up more signage........we always recommend the use of the trail maps that we hand out at check in time.......we have been extremely busy and have not accomplished all the things we plan to do with the trails......Thank you
