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.

I spent two nights with the Murphin Ridge Inn while taking a class. It was a pleasant escape from the hussle and bussle of work. Beautiful scenery, exceptionally clean room, wonderful view, and dining was supurb!

Excellent weekend!

My wife and I took a long weekend away. On a recommendation of a close friend we decided to head to Murphin Ridge. The facilities were very nice. The cabin was well thought out with amenities. The staff were excellent. The food, both dinner and breakfast, were top-notch 5 star quality. (Bring your appetite) We had a great time and plan on going back in the early fall.

Great weekend!

Needed a short getaway and found this gem on TripAdvisor. Booked one of the King cabins (highly recommend a cabin for privacy) for a two night stay. Everything was fantastic. Every staff member was friendly, welcoming and attentive. All of our meals were outstanding. We ate dinner in the dining house both evenings and were blown away. We did spend a lot of time hidden away in our cabin just enjoying some peace and quiet (no tv, no internet) and only ventured out briefly for a nice hike and a little shopping. We will go back the first chance we get. For those of you who need TV&internet, there is availability in the guest/dinning houses. Cell service was good everywhere on the property.

Wonderful country getaway!

Murphin Ridge Inn is a wonderful place to get away for a weekend and enjoy the peace and quiet of the country. Their service and friendliness is spectacular. The food at the Inn is exceptional. It is a mix of comfort food with some unexpected flair added. I enjoyed every meal we had there and had a hard time deciding what to order. We will definitely visit again!
