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.
PROS: Cool mix of vintage and modern aesthetics. Super friendly staff. Very clean. Room had loads of "nice touches" and features. AMAZING BREAKFAST. Ability to add on things like flowers and chocolate to spoil your significant other. This is a great B&B that gets the Bed AND Breakfast very, very right. CONS: The chocolate strawberry's and flowers were well done. However, the charge for them, in my opinion, was a bit much. I've stayed at other B&Bs and it's been more reasonable elsewhere. This is a very nit-picky thing, though, and again, overall this place is amazing.
Beautifully decorated for the holidays. Cozy and comfortable and relaxing. Couldn't have asked for nicer or more accommodating host. Especially enjoyed all the history of the home and the vintage instruments. Will definitely be back!
We have stayed here just after Thanksgiving four or five times over the past dozen years of so. We love Catherine's Room. It's small but very comfortable and just right for us. If that wasn't enough, the breakfasts are worth the stay by themselves.
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.
