We had a wonderful, relaxing, great time away. This is a very nice place to stay (wish the weather would have been nicer during our time there but...still nice!) The food was EXCELLENT! Best salmon I ever had...would eat there even if I wasn't staying there...and u can do this by the way. They have different specialty items on their menu every day to change things up for the guests which is nice too. No TV or wifi in our cabin (MY Cabin) which was fine with us! Sometimes we all need a time to get away from the distractions in life and just enjoy time together. Something I which we could have done but couldn't because of the weather was enjoy the walking trails as well - next time. One suggestion - we brought our laptop and a DVD along to watch a movie on there instead.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Murphin Ridge. The food was absolutely scrumptious. Nothing bad to say...all good. The staff was great and super friendly. We are glad we found Murphin Ridge and will look forward to our next visit.
The innkeepers are great hosts. They were very attentive and courteous. The bedroom is nice and bed is comfortable. Only suggestion is it would be nice to have a separate A/C unit for the bedroom I stayed in.
I am a mother of six, working full time, in graduate school and internship for clinical counseling. My husband is a restaurant manager finishing his undergrad. To say that we are a little stressed would be a drastic understatement! So for our 7th wedding anniversary, we decided to escape the hustle and bustle of the city. We'd never heard of this place before, but the pictures looked relaxing, and we can be happy anywhere, so we gave it a shot. OH. MY. GOODNESS!!! The pictures don't do it justice. I have NEVER seen a hotel room as pristine as our king cabin was. The wood floors, wood walls, every single centimeter of the bed, windows, bathroom were spotless. It looked like they'd been renovated the day before we checked in! The bed was a little hard, I'll admit; but the relaxation factor of laying with my husband in a jacuzzi tub with a glass of wine by firelight as we watched an evening lightening storm cannot be captured in words, it was THAT magical! I had an in room massage on Saturday while my husband napped. It was cold, but we still had a great time exploring nearby shops and the serpent mounds. And the food is amazing!!! I didn't have a single thing I didn't like, and everyone was incredibly accommodating with my diabetic needs. The chef sincerely wants to please and will come to check on you personally while you're eating...and not because he has to. He seems to actually care what you thought and that you were happy. It was just amazing!! Definitely on your list to try should be pancakes, ribs, sunrise juice, bread pudding and their morning granola. YUM!!! The bath products provided smelled and felt amazing, and there were cookies and water in our room each morning. Overall, it was FANTASTIC...the most romantic and relaxing vacation I've ever had. I will definitely be going back!
We live nearby and were looking for a chance to relax and reconnect for a night away from home. The suite was beautiful, the bathroom accommodations especially were more than we could have hoped for and breakfast was delicious!
We spent our 10 year anniversary here as a treat to ourselves. A treat is definitely what it was. The staff was professional, friendly and always exceeded our expectations. The grounds were well kept allowing for wildlife to be seen even during the winter months. The food was phenomenal. We were forced out of our comfort zone with some of the choices and were pleasantly surprised by it. Not one meal was amiss. Our cabin was amazing! It was clean and stocked with all our needs at all times. We also chose to do couples massage on one of our days. That was the best decision. The masseurs set up and preformed our massages in the comforts of our own cabin next to our warm fireplace. We truly couldn't have asked for more. This was our first B&B experience and we're already planning a summer trip here with our children.
One of the best evening meals I can remember and the best breakfast ever!! The fire pit in the evening was so relaxing and the stars really shone. No light pollution out here. As comfortable an evening and stay as I can remember. The owners are great and take extra time and courtesy for guests.
We wish we could stay a month at Murphin Ridge! Our cabin was lovely and private. The owners and staff are delightful and so accommodating. Our dinners in the historic inn were the best we have ever had. Jerry, the chef/owner is superb! We are so pleased that the 1826 brick home is restored.
My husband and I needed a getaway and it was amazing . The interior very sophisticated and the staff Rachel And Korine were friendly . The cooking class was a Must very fun and upbeat . Great wine and music . Terrific atmosphere ! And to top it off it's a couple shops , restaurants , and winery in walking distance . We will become regulars .
Simple decor, lots of quiet, perfect for relaxation. No TV so you actually have to talk to your loved ones/friends, read, play games, listen to the birds. Heaven. Read your book on your private deck during the rain, then listen to the birds. Great food -- a meeting place of gourmet & home cooking! Very friendly hosts. lots of great hiking & Amish shopping nearby.
This was my wife and I's forth retreat at Murphin Ridge. It rained the whole time but didn't bother us a bit, we enjoyed the quiet time in the cabin talking, reading, playing games. Beautiful and refreshing!
We stayed in the Lodge for Friday and Saturday nights and loved it! The room was very clean and comfortable. We would never have known that there were other guests nearby, as everything was calm and quiet.The food for every meal was delicious and beautifully presented. We did a great hike on Saturday and visited the Amish Shops. Saturday night we sat around the fire pit and watched the stars come out. The whole experience was exceptional!
Nancy and Bob are fantastic! They have a passion for service and an eye for detail and it shows in everything they do. And to top it off the food is terrific!! We will continue to book stays here as it truly is one of the best!
Great quiet and relaxing get away. Service, accommodations and food were very good! Would come again without a doubt! Thanks for creating this property and all that goes with it. Service personnel made it extra special!
We recently stayed in the Joe's Place cabin... The cabin was spotless and beautifully decorated down to the little details that made it very special (bath oils, candle, robes, monogrammed wine glasses, etc). Someone obviously put some thought into the details. We absolutely loved the fireplace and whirlpool tub, and the bed was very comfortable. We loved that there were no TV's in the cabins but there were games, and that everything was so peaceful and quiet on the property. We visited in winter and on a Sunday so many little shops around town were closed for the winter or it being Sunday, but we did visit the Serpent Mound. We would love to come back in summer or early fall when the weather is nicer and sit by the outdoor fire, go swimming, do more hiking around the property, etc. Breakfasts were very nice, loved the tea selection!! The staff was very polite and attentive.
Wecoming and homey, beautiful furnishings, great stories about Taylor family history. Yummy breakfast and a host who truly loves to cook and meet anyone's food requirements. Large guest room and bath (no stand alone shower though); excellent linens and towels. Hosts treat you as member of family, not strangers stopping for a stay. Close to most anything one would want to enjoy in the Newport/Covington/Cincinnati area.
We travel to Murphin Ridge Inn once or twice a year as a "getaway from it all" kind of stay. We always rent one of the cabins and we cannot say enough positive things about the innkeepers, the staff, the breakfasts and dinners and the coziness and comfort of the cabins. Murphin Ridge Inn is a definite "must do" kind of place in Adams County.
