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.

Murphin Ridge Inn is an amazing place to stay! My husband and I stayed in one of the cabins. We stayed there on a Saturday and Sunday the beginning of November. The cabin stayed nice and warm, but not too warm. We were able to enjoy the 3-sided fireplace. Everything was nice and clean. There was plenty of hot water for the tub. The bed was comfortable. The food is amazing! I know that dinner is a little pricey, however, you get a LOT of food (3 courses)! Breakfast was so yummy! My husband does not even like pancakes, but he like the pancakes at Murphin Ridge!! We will definitely be going back in the future!

Can't wait to go back to my second home

We went to Murphin Ridge as a last minute decision for our anniversary celebration. We can't wait to go back!! There's no tv, no cell phone service, and no Wi-Fi in the cabins. And it was the most relaxed we have ever been! Just us, a fire place, hot tub, and nature! The food....I can't say enough about the food. Very fresh and cooked to perfection! The next time we want to get away....we have no other choice. We will be staying at Murphin Ridge!!

Relaxing Anniversary

4.6 on November 23, 2014

We enjoyed two nights in the 'Encore' cabin and it was a wonderful way to spend our 25 year anniversary. We stayed in the first day because of rain, but we enjoyed the next day with a fabulous breakfast and a hike afterwards. The entire staff was incredibly sweet and very accommodating to our needs, and the place was immaculate! Dinner was a little pricey, but all in all, it was worth it. We will most definitely be back!!

Peaceful stay in the country

Loved our stay

4.8 on November 12, 2014

My husband and I have gone the Murphin Ridge Inn a few times over the past few years. We recently started in Fantastic Carols for the first time and loved it. Breakfast and dinner were amazing and the cabin was clean and inviting. Murphin Ridge Inn is an amazing retreat to visit and we look forward to visiting again.

Nice quiet get-a-way

4.4 on November 12, 2014

We enjoyed our time spent at Murphin Ridge Inn. The only drawback was the charged 10 dollars more a night than the internet said and the price listed in the room in their reference booklet. The cabin was cozy and the waitresses were nice. However the food was was on the high end for traditional meals. $22 for a regular hamburger, uh no thanks! Won't go back bc I do not feel for the amount of money spent was worth it for what it was.

Excellence at Murphin Ridge Inn

4.8 on November 10, 2014

My wife and I stayed at Murphin Ridge Inn 11/4-11/6 in the main lodge. The double queen room was large, with good sized closet and bath. The shower had very hot water with strong water pressure! They had free coffee and tea in the large sitting area that had a dining table for games or meals, a piano, and several comfortable chairs, with an outside rocking chair porch. The meals are exceptional, from the free breakfast, to the sack lunches and dinner available for purchase. The dinner atmosphere was friendly among other diners and we enjoyed the exceptional service. There is an easy walking path in the forest with Amish neighbors about riding in carriages or on scooters. Quiet, peaceful. They are definitely on our return list, to try a cabin with fireplace and jacuzzi next time.
