Stayed overnight in Margaret's Porch while visiting for a concert and this place is almost heaven. Such a great place to enjoy the evening. First visit to a B&b and we will be back this summer. Thanks for your hospitality. James
My wife and I took a weekend getaway and couldn't have asked for a better stay. We stayed in the "My Cabin" Cabin and loved every minute of our stay. We enjoyed walks on the many trails, enjoyed quiet time by the onsite fire outside and couldn't have asked for better food! You won't regret it!
We stayed the weekend following Thanksgiving of 2016. As usual we had a great time with wonderful hosts. It's always a great trip for us and we were welcomed into the home and hearth of the 1861 Inn. It is always the very first place we think of for a getaway.
We had a wonderful 2 day stay at the 1861 Inn! The accommodations were great, breakfasts amazing ,they were so welcoming & the history on the house so interesting. We plan to return when the weather is better so we can enjoig the pool!
I had never stayed at a bed and breakfast prior to this. We stayed in the Mr. and Mrs. Graves suite which was quite spacious. The jacuzzi was lovely and Mary was very accommodating. The only thing I would note is that this suite is directly off of the dining room which made me feel a little awkward, but we didn't really have any issues. The food was excellent.
Cozy stay for our anniversary in the suite room in a historic setting. Very comfy and well decorated. The inn keepers were super and breakfast was made to order. We love staying at these places; it's like being back in time.
My wife and I have visited several times and have loved it every time. It is such a peaceful place to get away from life for awhile and relax. The rooms are clean and the food is great. We plan to return.
We very much enjoyed our stay at the Willis Graves B & B. The home was very clean and comfortable and the breakfast (selection of choices) was fantastic. We would definitely stay there again.
We stayed in Jennie's Room and had a great time. Tom and Carole told us all about the history of the place and the food was perfect. They made us feel at home and Marley was so well behaved and made it even more special. It was an anniversary getaway and we spent Saturday visiting Main street in Milford. We highly recommend 1861 Inn and plan to try and visit in the spring when the area is in bloom.
My wife and I stayed in the Marguerites porch suite last week and had one of the best times ever. I could say the food (stuffed French toast and overstuffed burrito) were out of this world but everything about this B&B was outstanding. We look forward to coming back next year.
My wife and I had a nice visit at First Farm Inn. We stayed Oct 24 while visiting the Creation Museum which happens to be at the same freeway exit and only about 3 miles away. We stayed in the Treehouse room on the second floor which was spacious with a big private bathroom. The breakfast was tasty with crisp bacon, french toast, juices,and fresh fruit.
We heard many good things about Murphin Ridge and wanted to see for ourselves. My husband and I stayed at The Donald cabin. It was a beautiful room set inside the woods with walking trails next to us. The rocking chairs in the room are very comfortable. Unfortunately, the queen size bed mattress needs to be replaced. We did not sleep well at all. The bed is worn so that you roll into the middle and it was hard like the padding was all gone. I mentioned it to the front desk and she offered to move us to a different cabin, but we chose to go home the following night because we live less than an hour away. If the mattress gets replaced, I'd give this cabin 5 stars. This is the best food ever! The pumpkin soup was amazing! They even gave me a copy of the recipe :-) I had their fried chicken with mashed sweet potatoes and green beans. The best! The breakfast had home made granola like I've never had before. I absolutely loved it. And the pancake we great. As I said, the food----amazing!
Probably our 5th or 6th visit. Each one has been charming. If you're going just as a couple you must try one of the cottages (1 BR) if any are available. A little pricey, but you definitely get what you pay for. The food has always been lovingly prepared and well presented. Under relatively new management (4 yrs +/-) and it's even better than before. Quite an accomplishment!
Our favorite bed and breakfast of all time. Nancy and Bob are great hosts and make you feel right at home. The breakfast is delicious as are the chocolate chip cookies. Have been coming here for years and have brought many of our friends here.
This was such a wonderfully private and pleasant getaway for our anniversary. The dual whirlpool was amazingly romantic. Breakfast was MAGNIFICIENT, the gingerbread pancakes superb. Will definitely go again when we go through Cincinnati.
Everything about our visit was well managed and attended to. We stayed in cabin #8 and found it to be well appointed, clean, and private. We enjoyed dinner both evenings and it was delicious. We also got packed lunches which we enjoyed after our local hike. We also walked the Murphin Ridge trails both days and found them to be peaceful and well maintained. The breakfast was delicious both days. Cookies in the room were an added bonus. Also enjoyed the campfire both nights. One evening with a drink alone before our dinner reservation, and the other evening in after dinner with couples also staying at the Inn. Will definitely be back.
This historic home makes for an excellent overnight experience. It has so much character and the owners have worked hard to preserve the character of the mid-1800's house. The three different rooms all have something unique about them. Let's not forget the breakfast, it is absolutely delicious. You will not be disappointed in your decision to stay at the 1861 Inn.
We had a great one night stay and enjoyed ourselves. The home is exceptionally well maintained and the breakfast was wonderful. We would definitely stay here again! Mark & Terry
Going right before Halloween seemed to be perfect timing. The drive past all the colorful trees was amazing. Pumpkins were displayed throughout the property. We stayed 2 nites in the Three Sisters cabin. The room was comfy...nice bedding and plenty of towels. Two reclining chairs and throws made looking at the trees thru the upper windows seem very calming. The cabins are all very close together, so not very private. The fireplace in the center of cabin at first seemed odd, but it was nice to have it close to the shower and tub. It was on timer which made it easy to use. There was plenty to do while hanging out on the property. They have several trails, a bonfire pit surrounded by chairs, a hammock, and several Adirondack chairs scattered around. I took my throw and book and found a chair to read in amongst all the falling leaves from the trees. Breakfast and dinner was excellent. But dinner seemed to be very overpriced. And getting the brown bag lunch did not seem worth it at $11.50 (ham/swiss sandwich, pear, can of coke, bag of chips, and a hard boiled egg (?). Highly recommend going to the Miller Bulk Foods and Furniture to look around and pickup a sandwich and some delicious bakery goodies.
Sat on the front porch of Cabin 7 and carved a caricature head of my wife who is in a Care Center.. I really needed this mini vacation. As usual, the meals were excellent, and the young lady at the desk mixes a great vodka manrtini, 2 of which I carried back to the cabin; one enjoyed on the front porch while enjoying the beautiful fall colors, the other later in the whirlpool with the fireplace blazing away!
I stayed overnight after tent camping for three days in the rain, and felt so luxuriously pampered. My room had a clawfoot tub, fireplace and steam shower - so wonderful. When I arrived at 8 pm, there was a welcome sign on the stairs, and Tom brought me a glass of wine and brownies. Breakfast was delicious, and I enjoyed a great talk about books with Carole and Tom in the kitchen afterwards. Highly recommend staying here!
