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.

Relaxing Romantic Retreat

Wonderful weekend getaway! !!!

Cozy Cabin

5 on December 22, 2014

My husband and I loved our stay in this cozy cabin within the most peaceful setting. The cabin was clean and simple. The food was amazing! The service was given with a smile at every turn. We enjoyed a hike in the woods and a visit from a deer. Our couples massage was the icing on the cake of a perfect weekend. We hated to leave and can't wait to visit again! Christine and Kevin Smith

What a Wonderful Experience

We are kicking ourselves for not getting to Murphin Ridge before now. Gerry and Paula were the perfect hosts and the food and dining is quite possibly among the very best away from home eating experience one could have. Gerry's freshly ground breakfast sausage, without a doubt, is the very best we've ever had. These people know what they are doing and their hospitality is fantastic.

My fiance and I were celebrating our new engagement and both of our birthdays so this was a treat for us. This place was amazing and the customer service is outstanding. The Schutt family treats everyone like family and are very accomodating. We are going to make this an annual affair. I can't say enough great things about Murphin Ridge Inn.

Perfect for relaxing and recharging!

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

4.6 on November 30, 2014

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
