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.

Friday night stay in Jan 2015

4.6 on January 27, 2015

We were in the area for another reason and decided to stay over on a Friday night. Everything was extremely nice and our hosts were very friendly. The meals were delicious and the cabin was as cozy as it gets. And the snowfall topped it off and made everything stunningly beautiful, We stayed several years before and are very pleased to see the fine traditions as strong as ever. Thank you !

Like a mirage, but real

I was looking for a place to stay after a long drive through Ohio and a local told me about the MRI. I couldn't have been luckier or more pleased. The host was great, the price was extremely reasonable and though I was a walk-in I was welcomed as if I had been there many times before. Great indoor and outdoor dining, beautiful evening by the fire pit. Very relaxing. As a bonus a young deer had adopted the owners and visited for meals entertaining the guests.

Comfortable Country Elegance

Not a detail was missed, and even simple requests were met with enthusiasm. Excellent in all service. Food was simple, but very delicious. The cabins were pristine, beautiful and cozy. The owners and employees were very attentive to our needs and even delivered dinner to our cabin one evening. Really a wonderful place to stay with all the right amenities and attention to detail. I definitely plan to stay here again. Couldn't recommend Murphin Ridge Inn enough. Thank you.

A disappointed guest

3.0 on January 04, 2015

We were guests for New Year's Eve and stayed in a cabin. It was very clean and well kept, however, the beds were uncomfortable with hard pillows. The food was below average for a New Year's celebration or for any time. Breakfast was homemade beef smoked sausages that were not tasty and offered no meat substitution. On a previous visit we were served the same sausage patty so this must be their norm. Pancakes were tasteless. The fruit was a few strawberries in a crepe. Not sure why you were serve a crepe if you are having pancakes. Murphin Ridge is a nice getaway for a romantic weekend but don't expect much while dining there and be sure to bring a pillow and foam pad.

Innkeeper Response
Thank you for for stay and review. Reviews are very important to us and we were deeply troubled that you were disappointed with your stay. Our goal is for all our guests to enjoy a relaxing, memorable and enjoyable stay, every time.Please accept our apology. We would like to add that as innkeepers, we were present for the entire New Years Eve celebration and the following breakfast. If you would have voiced these concerns to us we could have addressed at least some of them immediately. We had extra memory foam pillows on hand .....we had bacon as an alternate meat selection for breakfast. A few of our guests requested bacon and eggs and we did serve them. We want you and all of our guests to know that we really care and want to serve the very best. Thank you, Jerry

Never a disappointment! Murphin Ridge

Great Stay

Great dinner. Very nice room. A nice easy walking trail to the nearby Amish stores. We're very glad we decided to get away. The only negative was that the room was dry. A humidifier or even a Kettle on the stove would make the room more comfortable. We highly recommend this experience.

Cozy Cabin

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.
