Professionally Inspected & Certified


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.

A Perfect Getaway

5 on August 01, 2014

We rented one of the cabins and it was lovely. Quiet, spotless, and very well appointed with all modern conveniences even though we felt like we were in the woods. Hospitality is unsurpassed and the food is excellent at the Inn. If you want R&R, consider Murphin Ridge.

A gem--best weekend getaway I've ever had!

A gem--best weekend getaway I've ever had!

Wonderful escape!

Our second stay at Murphin Ridge Inn was as wonderful as the first. Jerry and Paula are wonderful innkeepers, and their staff is friendly and helpful! MRI is a quiet and restful inn. The walking trails and swimming pool allow one to work-off all the fabulous food they prepare! The cabins are pleasant, yet "rustic" accommodations, with all the comforts of home, and beyond!

We went 3 nights in a cabin and enjoyed every minute of our stay! Breakfast and Dinner is amazing! I could go every weekend if I lived closer!

Wonderful and relaxing!

The cabin we stayed in was beautiful! There were woods around us and lovely fields. The dining area was in a separate historic barn...the food was a set menu to choose from and was wonderful! The innkeepers were very friendly and accommodating as was all of their staff. I would definitely recommend the Murphin Ridge Inn for people who would like to experience a great stay.

Awesome place!

What a great place to stay! We had one of their king cabins and it was terrific! A king sized bed, two recliners, fireplace, two person tub and a big shower with 6 shower heads! It had a small frig, coffee pot and they brought ice each afternoon. The front porch had two rockers plus a swing. The first night we were there it rained and it was relaxing listening to the rain on the porch! Food was FABULOUS! We ate dinner both nights - saturday night we had the best ribs! Breakfast is included in your room and it was also awesome! Sat morning we had homemade smoked breakfast sausage! My husband thought he had died and gone to heaven! Jerry, Paula and their staff are very attentive and take great care of you! We are going back that is for sure!!
