A Paradise

5 on May 21, 2018

My daughter and I decided to escape from Cleveland for the weekend and explore the Mounds, Earthworks and Serpent Mound of Southern Ohio. My daughter found this delightful Inn where every element from the immaculate rooms, welcoming staff and five star dining bowled us over. We will certainly return with friends and family. Thankyou to the Schutts particularly during our stay Andy who was a delight. Thankyou all so much!! M&A Chapman

We really enjoyed our stay this past weekend. Everyone was so helpful with whatever we needed. The cabin was clean, spacious and met our every need. The food was awesome too, and if they’re having ribs for dinner, ORDER THE RIBS!! My wife and will definitely return the the peaceful oasis that is Murphin Ridge Inn. The Barthelemys

LOVE LOVE LOVE Murphin Ridge Inn. We go several times a year and enjoy the peace and tranquility it offers!

Perfect getaway

Murphin Ridge is a great place to relax and rewind. My husband and I have been visiting for over 10 years. Thank you to the staff and owners for always making our stay amazing!! We can’t wait to return!

Jerry's cooking alone makes it all worth it! A truly dedicated chef! My only complaint was the beds and pillows could have been memory foam or higher quality. Otherwise loved the rest of the amenities.

Beautiful Cabin

3.8 on April 03, 2018

Beautiful, clean cabin in a quiet setting. Perfect for a mini "honeymoon".

Louie’s Cabin

5 on April 01, 2018

We had such a wonderful time. We stayed in Louie’s Cabin! The owners were so gracious, the food exceptional. The staff were very helpful. The weather was horrible but we made the best of it! We definitely will be returning to Murphin Ridge Inn.

March Getaway

5 on April 01, 2018

We had a wonderful 3 days away from the city life and work. The people were super friendly, the food was absolutely amazing, and the cabin was very clean, quiet, and relaxing with the Fireplace, jacuzzi tub and the surrounding woods. A+.

So pleasant

4.4 on March 30, 2018

3rd visit. Can't seem to get good weather. Love it anyway. Cabins are comfy and charming.

Perfect Getaway

4.8 on March 18, 2018

MurphinRidge Inn is one of my favorite weekend getaways. The bucolic, yet luxurious setting feeds both my soul and my senses. The friendly and incredibly accommodating of our hosts sets the tone for what have become some of my favorite life moments/memories, always creating the desire to return as soon as I can.

weekend getaway

3.4 on March 14, 2018

I enjoyed the peace and solitude, along with the extra of a massage. Good food, but there was a lot that I did not know about the area, and other things about the stay, and it was never volunteered. Overall, great stay, and I would go back. Rooms were clean, most of the service was good, and the food was good, when it was cooked to my specifications, and basic kitchen/sanitary measures were used.

What a joy!

5 on March 12, 2018

The innkeepers and staff were so very hospitable and friendly. The food was excellent. It is a good thing there are so many hiking trails in the area to walk off the wonderful meals. Murphin Ridge Inn is the perfect spot for a restful, and peaceful get-away. Things to explore include The Nature Conservancy trails, Blake's Pharmacy, and Miller's Amish Store.

The place I wanna be!

5 on March 08, 2018

Second visit and we will be back. Our go to for peace and quiet.

Peaceful Retreat

5 on March 07, 2018

This is our second time at Murphin Ridge and it was just as great as the first time. I really love how peaceful and easy it is. You really don't feel like you HAVE to do anything. Its nice to take a walk around the property, eat good food, sit by the fire and see a million stars. We also took a couple hikes around the Edge of Appalachia. I highly recommend Murphin Ridge if this is the kind of experience you are looking for. The whole place is very clean and well care for.

Cozy, romantic B&B

4.6 on March 06, 2018

We've stayed here many times over the years. The cabins are beautifully designed and well thought out, the two sided fireplace is wonderful and the food is always fabulous! You have to try Jerry's secret recipe Broasted Chicken. Always a delight staying at Murphin Ridge!

A Spring Ger Away

4.8 on March 05, 2018

This was our 8 visit to Murphin Ridge and as always we had a great time. Jerry and Paula are great host all ways seeing that everything is to are satisfaction. The breakfasts are amazing with plenty too eat. May it be scramble eggs to foggy bottom pancakes. The dinners were overwhelming way to much food may it be the pork chops or steak. I would recommend The Inn to anyone who wants a quite and relaxing time,

Nice stay, wrong time of year

4.4 on February 28, 2018

I chose to stay at Murphin Ridge Inn in what is considered their offseason, specifically during the winter months. The cabin was beautiful, the food really good (if lacking in a little variety), and everyone was fantastic. The only problem my wife and I had was the lack of things to do if the weather happens to be bad. We went for the hiking as the location provides a superb opportunity to visit multiple nature preserves. Unfortunately, it poured all three days we visited, ugh! However, we were close enough to Cincinnati to visit it for the day, so it wasn't a complete loss. I would say if you plan on going for outdoor activities, account for the weather ahead of time!

Another great stay

4.8 on February 27, 2018

My wife and I only had one day for a quick getaway. The Murphin Ridge staff was very accommodating in helping us find just the room we wanted on the day we wanted. Even in the rain it was a relaxing, rejuvenating time. Dinner was filled with delicious surprises. Breakfast was delicious and plentiful as always. The entire staff was cordial and helpful in every way. We highly recommend MR

Many Stays, Never Less Than Outstanding

This is our go-to getaway from downtown Cincinnati. Serene, peaceful surroundings; beautifully appointed cabins; delicious breakfasts and dinners; amazing, friendly owners and staff.

Peaceful Bliss

Beautiful fun time.

Best Couples Weekend

5 on February 08, 2018

My wife and I booked a spur of the moment long weekend at Murphin Ridge not knowing exactly what we would do with no TV or WIFI. This was the best experience we have had on a mini vaca in a very long time. Clean rooms, best service,

Best romantic getaway

5 on February 04, 2018

Our recent stay at Murphin Ridge in was absolutely the best! Our cabin was tidy and in a very private area. The atmosphere was extremely welcoming and the owners and staff were friendly and attentive. Can't wait to be back! Debbie and Russell


5 on January 31, 2018

My wife and I enjoyed yet another fabulous weekend at "The Ridge"! This truly has become our special place when time is needed to relax, reconnect, and shed life's daily stress! Jerry, Paula and staff excel at making everyone feel welcome, comfortable, and well fed if you take your meals there! The Inn grounds are just beautiful, and we enjoy spending time hiking the well marked trails and exploring the surrounding forest. There are many more visits in our plans, and I fully expect each one to provide the same wonderful experience. This truly is a hidden gem in Adams County! Until the next time! Doug and Mary Alliston

Lovely Christmas!

4.8 on January 12, 2018

We had a delightful Christmas holiday in a wonderful cabin in the woods. The staff catered to our every need. The cabin was very comfortable and it had everything we needed. The food was outstanding! We will be back.

great getaway

Super place for a quiet getaway!

The Best Ever

5 on January 11, 2018

The owners and staff are so wonderful and friendly. The guests are just as friendly. Food - Oh my gosh - absolutely delicious.

A tranquil retreat

4.2 on January 10, 2018

A great setting with terrific Hosts. Always enjoy our stay at MRI. Service cannot be beat. Food is good, not great, but the restaurant adds to the ambiance and means you don't have to leave the site.

A piece of heaven

5 on January 09, 2018

My wife and I have stayed at the Inn plenty of times with the previous Innkeepers. First time we stayed with the newest Innkeepers. I have to say this about the food, was the best food we have had ever!!! The cabins were spotless. Everyone of the workers was so nice and friendly. We will be back shortly.

Happy New Year Stay

5 on January 06, 2018

As usual, we had a wonderful time on the Ridge! Comfy cabin and outstanding food!! We will be back soon!

Excellent Stay

5 on January 04, 2018

My wife and I celebrated our honeymoon weekend in one of the cabins at Murphin Ridge Inn. Despite the bitter cold, our cabin was warm and cozy with everything we could want in B&B Cabin. We were amazed by the outstanding breakfast and dinner service. The food was incredibly fresh and delicious. The staff was warm and accommodating as well as discrete. Murphin Ridge Inn is a perfect getaway for any couple.

Wish we could've stayed longer!

4.6 on January 02, 2018

Our cabin was fabulous, easy to get to, and with wonderful walks around the area. Perfect place for a one-night getaway, but certainly wish we could've stayed another night or two!

Loved our stay at Murphin Ridge!

5 on December 31, 2017

I didn’t want our time to end. We stayed in one of the cabins and loved it. The food and the service at the inn were exceptional. We can’t wait to go back!

Couple getaway

4.6 on December 30, 2017

Breakfast was delicious. Bed was very comfortable. Room setup was romantic. Jacuzzi tub in front of the fire place was very nice. Will be returning soon.

Most relaxing weekend ever

4.2 on December 20, 2017

Owners and employees were some of the friendliest people we've ever met. The beautiful setting and nice cabin made for the most wonderfully relaxing weekend.

Heaven on Earth

5 on December 18, 2017

This place is amazing!! It was the most peaceful, relaxing, enjoyable weekend my husband and I have had in a long time. One of the nicest, cleanest places we have ever stayed in. The food was beyond comparison. A++++


4.8 on December 12, 2017

We rented a cabin for my husband's birthday. The cabin was roomy, clean, and felt so cozy. The onsite dinning is better than outstanding. Every single bite was superb. We were even able to book an in room massage short notice. Staff and service were great! The only regret I have is not having more time to spend there!

Great weekend.

5 on December 11, 2017

We had a room at Murphin Ridge and it was great. We had a nice relaxing weekend, the food was delicious and I hope to make it back this summer. Everything was perfect.

Amazing Getaway

5 on December 06, 2017

Everything about this stay was perfect. The room was spotless and beautiful. The food was amazing! We had a couples massage and they were beyond our expectations!! Such a peaceful and glorious getaway!

Disappointment on the The Ridge

1.8 on December 06, 2017

We stayed in a cabin, as usual, and the wine glasses had lip marks on them (yuk!!). This was a Tuesday so the place was not busy however maid service was not done while we were at breakfast. We saw them eating in the lodge sitting room. Maids arrived after we returned. They didn't have clean wine glasses and seemed annoyed that we asked them to wash the ones we had. The owners were very nice and accommodating, as usual.

Our favorite get-away!

5 on December 04, 2017

If we had the time to go back every month, we would! This is the perfect place to relax, do some easy hiking, and enjoy the surroundings. Great food, and the service is wonderful. No television (hooray!) and no hustle-and-bustle of our every day lives.

Unplug at The Ridge

4.2 on November 29, 2017

The Ridge is a great place to get away and disconnect. It is a beautifully peaceful setting. The food was spectacular, well worth the trip in itself.

Cannot say enough about this beautiful place!

5 on November 27, 2017

We chose to stay at Murphin Ridge Inn after seeing how close it was to us in Cincinnati. We knew nothing about it before we booked. After booking and telling a few people about where we were staying, so many friends told us how amazing it was and trust me, it did not disappoint! The service was incredible. We arrived early and I'm pregnant, so I really just needed to use their restroom, but instead they had our room ready for us in minutes! We got to our room, and I was thoroughly impressed with the cleanliness. It was perfect! Plus, the chocolate chip cookies waiting for us was the sweetest surprise as well! Our food was excellent and the trail to the Amish store was absolutely beautiful. We will definitely be back! What a perfect little place!

Excellent Thanksgiving Meal & relaxation

5 on November 26, 2017

Enjoyed being treated like family, while away from family for the Thanksgiving holiday

Honeymoon Destination

5 on November 23, 2017

We stayed here from November 18th - 20th for our honeymoon and it was just perfect! The whole place was clean and we were pleased with how neat our room was. We enjoyed the trails, riding through the country, the fire pit, and the cats (Jack and Roberta). The staff/hosts are great and very accommodating and chef Jerry is amazing! We couldn't say anything bad about the food, they're superb! Overall, we had a great and romantic time. Thank you MRI for the wonderful experience.

Best Weekend of Our Lives

5 on November 22, 2017

My wife and I got away for a weekend to Murphin Ridge Inn - and we went basically just because it was the closest Bed and Breakfast we could find to where we lived in Cincinnati. We feel incredibly lucky though that we lucked into the greatest place into the world. We had the best weekend of our lives. The cabins were absolutely perfect. Romantic, beautiful. Just great for a getaway. We enjoyed hiking during the day, the fire-pit at night. And we had the best two dinners of our life. I cannot possibly overstate how good their food is. The list of items we had at Murphin that are among the best food we have ever eaten is: Broasted/Fried Chicken, Steak/Ribeye, Murphin Burger, French Fries, Carrot Souffle, Pureed Maple Sweet Potatoes, and the Pancakes. This was legitimately the best food we have ever had and we have eaten at many of the top places in Washington, DC - and yet we would pick the food at Murphin every time. We will come back again and again.

We absolutely love staying in the cabins....such a relaxing stay...wonderful breakfast in a really great room...can;t wait to come again....

4.8 on November 10, 2017

We absolutely love staying in the cabins....and such a peaceful setting....everyone is so friendly and nice....great food also....great hiking trails....

Oct 24 & 25 visit.

4.0 on November 09, 2017

The cabin has the same quality year after year (4). When couldn't walk trails, just comfy to sit back and relax in room, reading, play games, etc. The tub was very relaxing. The cookie treats were DELICIOUS. Loved the dinner and the breakfasts were outstanding. YUM. Jack, the cat, was a most welcoming mascot.

November stay at Murphin Ridge

5 on November 06, 2017

As always our stay was excellent. We enjoy the beautiful scenery and the quiet this time of year. Everyone is friendly and make you feel welcome and as usual the food is excellent with a beautiful presentation. We always look forward to our stay at the Inn.

Wedding Weekend

5 on November 05, 2017

The Amish house was perfect for our family on wedding weekend. From the master bedroom you can watch the sunrise from your bed, hear the houses clip clop past the house , and enjoy a late night or early morning Fire around the outdoor gas fire pit. The food was excellent and the service was top notch. Now we are trying to find another reason to spend a weekend out there again!

A Gem

5 on November 04, 2017

A wonderful place to relax and enjoy nature. A place that is close yet so far away. First class accommodations, staff and food. Fred

Murphin Ridge Inn Getaway

4.6 on November 04, 2017

We have stayed in the Cabins nearly a handful of times, and have never been disappointed. They remain clean, timeless and comfortable. The from and back porches and always perfect for relaxing. Love being tucked in the woods with easy access to hiking trails and a short refreshing walk to the inn for meals.. Murphin Ridge Inn remains a favorite!

Great Autumn Break

5 on November 02, 2017

Peace and quiet and wonderful food!!

Wonderful stay

4.2 on November 02, 2017

We had a wonderful overnight stay at the Murphin Ridge Inn. The room in the guest house was clean and comfortable with a nice view of the sunrise. Our friends who stayed in one of the cabins loved it. The highlight of our visit was the food. Dinner portions were generous and expertly prepared. The included breakfast was also excellent and of gourmet quality.

Outstanding Service

5 on October 31, 2017

My wife and I stayed this past weekend. Accommodations were wonderful. We chose not to have the ribs; though they smelled delicious. We can not wait till we return.

Enjoyed our visit!

5 on October 26, 2017

The atmosphere was amazing. Our hosts were wonderful! So peaceful and relaxing. Excellent meals! Thank you so much!

Wonderful Retreat

5 on October 24, 2017

What a wonderful place with a great setting! The staff treats you like family and it is also a great place for business retreat. We have gone three years in a row and will be back next year. Cannot recommend them enough. Food was incredible and a wonderful place to unwind.

Quiet and relaxing.

4.8 on October 23, 2017

After moving to a new home and all the work that goes with it, I was ready for some R and R. As soon as I pulled onto the facility I started to relax. Check in was simple and friendly, my room was clean and very comfortable, I sat on the balcony and read and then walked the hiking trails. Not strenuous just really pretty. Dinner was sort of expensive but worth every bite. The peanut butter pie for dessert was so rich I couldn't eat it all, yum. I left the next morning relaxed and recharged.

Relaxing B&B

4.8 on October 22, 2017

My wife and I enjoy visiting Murphin Ridge and try to stay a few times every year. It's a great place for good food, fine accommodations and great relaxation.

Morphing Ridge

4.4 on October 22, 2017

Beautiful, romantic getaway. The staff bent over backwards to be helpful. They had trails, camp fires and delicious homemade food.

Amazing Night

4.8 on October 22, 2017

My wife and I stayed a night at Murphin Ridge for her birthday. It was an amazing experience. The cabin was great, the food OUTSTANDING, and the campfire a nice way to relax after dinner. We also walked the trails and played a little tennis. It was really great and we would do it again.


4.8 on October 21, 2017

Great place for relaxing couple of days. Food is fabulous

Our Favorite Long Weekend Getaway

5 on October 12, 2017

Lost count of how many times we've stayed at Murphin Ridge. That says it all.

Quiet, Relaxing, Get-A-Way!

5 on October 11, 2017

Murphin Ridge Inn is the place to go. Great food, relaxing atmosphere, evening camp fires, comfortable rooms, wooded trails, and all this surrounded by an Amish community.

Romantic getaway

5 on October 11, 2017

We just finished our second stay at Murphin Ridge Inn. As always the food was excellent, the rooms immaculate, and the massages perfect. The atmosphere is very relaxing and perfect for anyone wanting to get away with their spouse or for anyone wanting for find some peace and quit. We have loved our stay and will be going back many more times in the future.

a wonderful stay

5 on October 08, 2017

The accommodations, staff and surroundings were wonderful. The food was great and portions plentiful. Plan to go back soon!

Perfect Get-Away

3.8 on October 04, 2017

The view was amazing! Everyone was very friendly and helpful when needed. It was the most tranquil and relaxing setting. Watching the sunrise and the sunset was fantastic.

Comfy and relaxing

3.8 on September 30, 2017

Cabin was very comfy, service and food were very good. Loved sitting around the campfire meeting new people and the relaxing atmosphere. The only negative was that the cabin did smell a little musty.

Fall trip to Adams County

5 on September 28, 2017

My husband and I have stayed at the Murphin Ridge Inn each fall for the past 14 years. We had another wonderful weekend getaway this September! The dining was particularly outstanding this year. I recommend hiking at both the Inn property and the nearby Serpent Mound. I also recommend visiting House of Phaecops for interesting fossils, rare stones, and stories. We always stop by the Miller furniture store and bakery which are right around the corner from Murphin Ridge. Highly recommend this lovely Bed and Breakfast!


4.8 on September 27, 2017

Murphin Ridge Inn is one of our favorite places! The staff is very attentive and the food onsite is incredible. We love the peace and quiet and this B&B is the perfect place to unwind. Would HIGHLY recommend!

Murphin Ridge Three sisters cabin

5 on September 22, 2017

This place is amazing!! Our cabin was so cozy and wonderful. The staff was very friendly and treated you as if they have known you forever. The resident cat "Jack" greeted us every day and came to hang out on our porch. The food at the restaurant was absolutely incredible. I would definitely recommend them and can't wait to come back!! Bree Alexander

A Place to Relax . . .

4.6 on September 12, 2017

The perfect place to relax. The owners and their family are perfect hosts. The service and the food are 5 star!


5 on September 07, 2017

This place was wonderful to stay in. We really enjoyed it. The cabin we stayed in and the food for dinner and breakfast was great hope to come back soon

A wonderful anniversary

5 on September 06, 2017

Such a wonderful place to celebrate our anniversary. Quiet and so peaceful. Wonderful food and service and enjoyed the resident cats. Look forward to returning soon.


4.8 on September 04, 2017

The place is fantastic! Took my wife there for her birthday and it totally exceeded our expectations. The food is amazing....get the ribs even if you think you dont like ribs.......they are exceptional! Thumbs up all the way around!

A Weekend Get Away

5 on September 04, 2017

I wanted to get away with my wife for a weekend without the kids. This is the place to go. Great scenery, great atmosphere and the food was fantastic. I recommend this to any couple that needs a break from the daily grind of work and family life. The owners are really easy to deal with.

Murphin Ridge Weekend Getaway

4.2 on September 03, 2017

Beautiful setting, genuine hospitality and delicious food. Highly recommend!

Absolute tranquility!

4.4 on September 02, 2017

Beautiful views of rural Ohio. Loved the deer browsing the fields . Guests can enjoy the pool on a warm day and the bonfire every evening. A few simple trails take you into the woods. Nearby Amish establishments offer local flavor. The lovely old home on the property provides a great setting for the breakfast or for the order-ahead dinner if you plan to include that. Come for rest, relaxation and to reflect. Guests from Dayton.

Bringing Family Together

4.2 on August 31, 2017

A wonderful quiet place to enjoy the beauty of the surrounding area. We were disappointed when a large outside group was accommodated ahead of us. We were paying guests staying at the B&B and were asked to push our dinner time back an hour - too late for us.

A gem in the wilderness of Appalachian foothills

4.4 on August 29, 2017

We stayed at the inn while hiking and birding in the region and loved the tranquility of the property and friendliness of the staff. Dinner and breakfast were great while room was comfortable, clean and quiet for a restful evening.


4.8 on August 23, 2017

Everything about my recent stay was perfect as usual!

A very relaxing getaway

5 on August 23, 2017

This was our second time staying at this relaxing and beautiful place. We love everything about it.

Using a Gift Certificate at Murphin Ridge Inn

4.0 on August 22, 2017

My husband received a gift certificate almost four years ago, and we just now used it at this lovely country inn that exceeded our expectations in location, room comforts and food service. The only negative I experienced was using the GC the morning we checked out. The receptionist was very sweet, but another staff member made me feel rather badly about using a four year old GC (it did not expire and was purchased from the current owners). She informed me that gift certificates are required to expire in Ohio, but they still accepted ours. So I'm a bit confused. But other than that, our stay was just lovely and the rest of the staff was friendly and the owners' son cooked our steak and pork chops to perfection!

Relaxing stay at Murphin Ridge

5 on August 19, 2017

The service was excellent; accommodations perfect; food delicious; and atmosphere calm and serene. We also enjoyed a couples massage which put us over the top relaxed. Thanks Jerry and Paula for another memorable time at Murphin Ridge.

We love this place!!

5 on August 19, 2017

We've always stayed in a cabin. Spending a quiet evening rocking on the porch.....just like stepping back in time. Can't beat life in the slow lane. Dining here is fabulous!

Nice getaway

3.8 on August 18, 2017

Cabin was nice but pricey. Restaurant was very good. Plenty of food. Good breakfast. Neat things around to visit. The couples massage was very good. We would go back.

Perfect, In Every Way

4.8 on August 12, 2017

The photos and videos online simply cannot capture the magic that is Murphin Ridge. The cabin is much more spacious than it looks, and the positioning of everything within just makes sense. Fireplace right next to the whirlpool tub on one side and the bed on the other, for example. Every single spot on this journey is almost addictive. The rocking chair and swing on the porch - you won't want to get up once you sit down! Fresh air and only the sounds of birds and the local cats cuddling up beside you. Same holds true for the campfire circle. And the restaurant, where you'll get a meal that far exceeds your expectations. The only regret we had about this trip is not staying longer.

Dining a disappointment compared to earlier visits.

4.0 on August 11, 2017

The cabin maintained the standards and relaxing calm we remembered from our last stay over 5 years ago. While the rain didn't stop for the entire time We were there it didn't "dampen" our spirits. Our evening meal didn't compare well with our recollections of past meals at the inn. The steak was of daunting size - we should have split the dish and still have leftovers! Over salted/seasoned. We were most disappointed with breakfast. Because of the rain we ate toward the end of the breakfast period and the potatoes and scrambled eggs seemed to have been prepared earlier. The potatoes were excessively seasoned. The mystery sausage looked anemic, uncooked, unappetizing and not the kind I'd associate with breakfast at all - we couldn't bring ourselves to taste it. I'd have settled for toast if offered. Reading all the fine reviews perhaps our experience was an aberration. Sadly we won't be giving this inn another chance.

Great romantic getaway

4.6 on August 10, 2017

We stayed on a Thursday evening in early August and stayed in one of the cabins. The cabin was huge and perfectly appointed with a fireplace (that we didn't use in August), a jacuzzi tub, and a walk in shower, along with a mini fridge, coffee maker, and more. Upon arriving we were welcomed with cold bottled water and fresh cookies. My husband booked a couples-massage for our cabin, which was delightful. We decided we'd like some wine before dinner, and the staff brought it out to our cabin for us! Great service! We ate dinner in the dining house and it was delicious! A bit expensive, but the food was definitely worth it - plus a lot of it! I wanted dessert but wasn't hungry after the enormous steak, so they packaged it up to take back to our cabin to enjoy later. We took a quick walk on the hiking trails after we woke up and had breakfast - but it started to rain. That was probably the only disappointment, and you can't blame the inn for the weather. So instead we sat on the porch in the rocking chairs and watched it rain until we left for home. Beautiful cabin & property!

More than just a bed and breakfast

5 on August 07, 2017

The staff at Murphin Ridge Inn treat you like family. It has so many features most B&B's do not - a tennis court, swimming pool, hiking trails, and a fire pit. They also schedule in room massages. The customer service was just outstanding. It is a beautiful setting with Amish bakeries, furniture and gift shops in the immediate area.

Excellent place to stay

5 on July 27, 2017

The cabins were awesome! Very quiet and relaxing. Food and hospitality were excellent. The only suggestion we could make to improve the comfort of your stay would be to offer an ottoman/foot stool in the cabins.

Perfect Getaway

5 on July 25, 2017

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Murphin Ridge. The food was delicious (as usual!); we had the pleasure of enjoying the wood fired pizza. The cabin was comfortable. Perfect place for a mid-week getaway!

Perfect Weekend Destress/Romantic Getaway!

4.6 on July 23, 2017

We stayed in one of the cabins, and it was very clean and nice to be in. A very quiet, peaceful, private setting in the woods. There's a large fire pit with a panoramic view of the foothills. Also the inn is located near quite a few places to hike and enjoy nature, not to mention the Amish shops nearby. All in all a great weekend. We'll be going back again.

Awesome Getaway

4.0 on July 21, 2017

This was our first visit but won't be our last. My husband and I were both overwhelmed at how relaxed we were. The quietness, seclusion of our cabin, the freedom of space to roam, and the overall atmosphere was wonderful. My compliments to the chef and rest of staff. We will definitely return. I tried to give it an outstanding rating but my computer wouldn't let me.

Amazing Respite

5 on July 21, 2017

We love Murphin Ridge! First time in the Inn for more than one night-very comfortable & clean. Loved the back porch & waking to the sunrise each morning. The grounds are quiet with rolling hills & wooded paths. Relaxing walks prepared us for more than one nap. The food is delicious & the staff attentive. We chose to eat on the patio since the weather was fine! Enjoyed visiting a couple of nearby Amish shops. We will return to Murphin Ridge again!

Great overnight stay

4.4 on July 20, 2017

Only stayed one night, but thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The cabin was wonderful. Highly recommend.

My favorite getaway spot!

I love visiting Murphin Ridge Inn. I highly recommend this spot for anyone looking for a quiet getaway. The food is the best I've ever had and the owners are lovely people.

Fabulous stay

5 on July 19, 2017

We had the most amazing stay at the Murphin Ridge Inn! Our cabin in the woods was beautiful, modern and extremely well-appointed. The onsite dining was absolutely fabulous - some of the best food we have ever had. And there are so many activities on the property: tennis, swimming, hiking and a fire pit. Pure relaxation! We will definitely go back.

Fabulous relaxing weekend in three cabin. Food was superb!! Service was fantastic. Only thing we would change would be a full door on the restroom rather than just a slatted folding door.

Great get away

4.6 on July 18, 2017

Everything was excellent! The service provided was top notch, the property was beautiful and the food amazing! We will be back

Peaceful Romantic Getaway

5 on July 17, 2017

This was a peaceful romantic getaway from everything. We were only at the cabin for 3 days and it felt like we were gone for a week and we were actually relaxed when we got home from our mini vacation. We walked the trails and enjoyed the wildlife, relaxed in the pool and played shuffle board for the first time. Sitting around the fire in the evening with the other couples after dinner was so nice. Oh dinner...words can't describe how good the food is at the Inn and it is worth every penny! Need time to reconnect with a loved one or just disconnect from the world this is the perfect place.

Fantastic Stay

5 on July 17, 2017

Found Murphin Ridge Inn thru an internet search. Was very pleasantly surprised at the accommodations. The food, room and view were beyond outstanding. Wished we had longer to stay and visit then just the one night. Planning on returning.

Peaceful Getaway

5 on July 14, 2017

My blood pressure dropped 20 points just driving in to this beautiful woodsy paradise. This was a wonderful stay from start to finish. We had a couples massage in our cozy, well appointed cabin, sat out and read on the porch until dinner which was delicious, gourmet and lovely on the patio. We walked the trails and watched the sunset before going back to the cabin for the evening. Had coffee on the porch in morning before a true treat of a breakfast on patio at the guesthouse. We just came from Cincinnati for an overnight. Next time we will definitely stay longer. It was so easy to get to and close enough for a quick getaway, but seemed miles away from the rush of our city lives.

Always an amazing time at Murphin Ridge!

4.8 on July 12, 2017

We have been going to Murphin Ridge at least once a year for the past 10 years and it never disappoints! Always an excellent time.


4.8 on July 12, 2017

Very relaxing!!!!! Everything we needed was in the cabin. The food was wonderful. All of the staff made sure all of your needs were met. We had several conversations with Paula and Marjorie and Jerry even stopped cooking to step in to the dining room to check with us/the diners. It was quite obvious that their guests are their first priority. THANK YOU ALL!!!!

We love it on the "Ridge"!!!!!!!! very peaceful!!!!!

5 on July 07, 2017

We brought our friends from RI and they loved it too!!! One of our favorite Select Registry's!!! We love the quiet! Thanks for the memories. Bonnie

What a wonderful weekend...

4.8 on July 05, 2017

A couples getaway was perfect for us. The cabin was fabulous, the staff amazing and the food was fantastic. Adams County was lovely place to explore, but returning early each day to relax at the cabin was really a treat.

Perfect local weekend getaway

4.6 on July 05, 2017

After extensively Googling for local weekend getaways, I stumbled onto Murphin Ridge's website. The place has been there all this time, one hour away, and I had NO idea! The cabins are cozy and gorgeous, the staff is wonderfully friendly and the food - - I can't even make words over the food. All I can do is picture that steak. I want to eat a lot more of that steak! This is a quiet, enjoyable retreat and I intend to make a return visit in the fall just to see what it all looks like with autumn leaves and color. And eat steak.


5 on June 29, 2017

I surprised my boyfriend for his birthday by reserving the MY CABIN in the woods. Our stay was during the week so it was quiet with only a handful of other guests on site. We had the pool to ourselves for the day, which was nice. We had a lovely and most delicious dinner that night and our breakfast the next morning did not disappoint. The food is outstanding. The cabin was romantic and peaceful amidst a quiet, wooded setting. We enjoyed sitting on the front porch and taking in the peacefulness and wildlife around us. Another nice couple on a walk stopped that morning and we had an enjoyable conversation, and later saw them again at breakfast. The staff is over the top friendly and works hard to make sure your stay is as enjoyable as possible. We can't wait to go back!


5 on June 28, 2017

This was an amazing getaway for my husband and I. I loved the beautiful property and the privacy. The food was amazing and the staff was friendly and courteous. The surrounding area was wonderful too! We will return.

The BEST !

5 on June 24, 2017

I have stayed here 3 times and it never disappoints!!!!!! Rooms are well appointed! Cookies upon arrival! Soft robes! Staff makes you feel like you are visiting friends in their home! Warm and inviting! The food is always exceptional!!!!!! Five stars all around!!!!!! Murphin Ridge Inn is a must for anyone in the area!!!! Bravo MRI!!!!!!!!

A wonderful stay

4.8 on June 21, 2017

My wife and I needed a quiet getaway to recharge after a busy school year. The Murphin Ridge Inn was everything we were hoping for. The facilities were clean, the food was outstanding and the atmosphere was relaxed and friendly. We couldn't have asked for more.

A must stay

5 on June 20, 2017

a must stay for amyone looking for a realxing getaway. beautiful cabins and a staff that could not be more friendly and helpful. food was superior.

Love it on the Ridge!

5 on June 19, 2017

We go to Murphin Ridge every chance we get because it is so peaceful and relaxing! I have shared the information with many of my friends and it has become their favorite place too!

Quiet weekend getaway

3.6 on June 12, 2017

We were in this part of Ohio for a music and arts festival located an hour away from the inn. Because we weren't able to make it back in time for dinner, they offered to deliver our dinners to our room so we could enjoy them upon our arrival. Such a nice touch! And the food was delicious. The smoked ribs are not to be missed and my husband loved the smoked sausage at breakfast. They also offered to sell us a bottle of wine to enjoy on our own later. Very accommodating. We stayed in a cabin which had a comfortable mattress and adequate space. This was our second stay at the Murphin Ridge Inn.

The Most Peaceful of Places

4.6 on June 11, 2017

Truly a 'must' experience if you are in the OH, KY or IN area. We've been twice now and stayed in the cabins. They are quaint, well appointed, super clean and just secluded as anything. The food and service was great on our first trip and was beyond amazing the 2nd time. From pizza in their brick oven, to ribs, to bread pudding. Can't say enough good stuff. Visit Murphin Ridge and recharge.

Another superb stay at the "Murph"!

4.8 on June 11, 2017

This is the second long weekend we stayed at the Murphin inn ( the "Murph" to us) Last time was 2013 and the current innkeepers Judy just bought the place. Our stay this time was equally delightful . The cabins are some of the loveliest , most comfortable , cleanest , and best appointed of its type in our ample travels , but it is the attention of the staff and the owners and staff a great experience where everybody is friendly and efficient, and attended to our every need . We came to Ohio for our second Nowhere Else festival with Over the Rhine - in Highland county nearby. Yet our stay at the Murph was an equal highlight. Such a peaceful setting , everyone so cordial and competent, great food, fun amenities, awesome masseuse. We felt both pampered and welcome. Just lovely.

Fun Getaway

5 on June 08, 2017

Outstanding accommodations - and the food is absolutely wonderful. I highly recommend the Murphin Ridge Inn for a fun getaway.

My new favorite quiet get-away !!

5 on June 07, 2017

Initially I reserved a room at the Inn as just a place to lay my head after a weekend of Triatholons at Shawnee State Park. I was to stay two weekend nights, Friday and Saturday. I completed my event on Friday and Saturday morning. However, when I first entered Murphin Ridge I realized I had signed up for something way better than I could have imagined. I marveled in the serenity of the beautiful land, the singing birds, the magnificent lounge pool, the exquisite outdoor dining, the lovely trails that on the grounds, the well designed fire pit, porch rocking chairs, (all of which visitors enjoyed throughout my stay!) Murphin Ridge is a perfect get away made for a king or queen! (keeping in mind I am a full time working teacher and mother of two.) There was no way I was leaving that place Saturday night and Sunday morning to finish the last two triathlon events. Yes... I skipped the remainder of my event (which I trained for months and months) to relax, enjoy, renew and melt into the scenery of bliss that I desperately needed. My husband joined me Saturday night for "the best ribs he's ever had" he said (slow roasted for 13 hours,) and I enjoyed delicious salmon with mashed potatoes and green beans prepared with class and a touch of farm fresh herbs! Sunday morning we slept in and again enjoyed amazing pancakes, bacon and a homemade granola dish prepared w/ fresh fruit. I have told coworkers, family and many friends about Murphin Ridge since leaving. For me it was a utopic paradise.. that I can't wait to visit again and again!! -Becky

We didn't want to leave!

5 on June 03, 2017

We are from California and did not want to return home. The quiet beautiful landscape and people we met along the way were spectacular. I would go back in an instant. I want to move to Ohio now! Food was delicious. Home made and fresh. It exceeded my expectations!

What a great find

4.8 on June 01, 2017

Makes us wish we got to Ohio more often. Excellent service in a beautiful setting with outstanding rooms and facilities and without pretentiousness or superficial friendliness. We had a great time and enjoyed our stay beyond our expectations

Relax and unwind.

4.6 on May 30, 2017

Wonderful place to relax and unwind. The firepit was very enjoyable in the evening and breakfast was awesome! The bed was very comfortable and room/bathroom clean & spacious. Also, the staff is extremely friendly and accommodating. Great spot to get away from it all!.

Great Experience

5 on May 26, 2017

Wonderful, private location, with clean accommodations and friendly, helpful staff.

very satisfied

4.4 on May 25, 2017

My fiance and I had a wonderful time staying here and would do so again. The food was excellent and the staff are very courteous and professional. It's a nice get away trip for those who are interested in the southern Ohio experience!

Can't wait to go back!

5 on May 24, 2017

This was our 30th wedding anniversary getaway & well worth the drive. The staff was so friendly, professional & helpful. The cottage we stayed in beautiful, he surroundings peaceful. The cat, Jack, onsite was adorable & a great guide along the trails. The food both breakfast & dinner outstanding. We do not live close by but we will be back!

Great Weekend Get-A-Way

5 on May 21, 2017

My wife and I recently stayed here to observe a quiet weekend for our 45th Anniversary. The food was well presented and delicious. The inn room was comfortable and clean. Sitting around the fire pit in the evening and visiting with the other guests is always enjoyable. The Innkeepers and staff are dedicated to making your stay as perfect as can be. We will be planning our next visit for the Fall very soon.

A Most Pleasant Weekend

5 on May 16, 2017

My wife and I choose Murphin Ridge Inn to observe our 45th Wedding Anniversary. We have stayed here a number of times before and wanted to return again. Our room was spotless, the breakfast and dinners were well presented and delicious, and the Innkeepers, and all the staff, were friendly and helpful. We felt like we were family being there. We always enjoy an evening campfire with the other guests. A great place to sit back and relax, conveniently located in an Amish area............Gloria & Bill P.

Room to improve

3.8 on May 16, 2017

I thought the help was very talkative. Meals were only ok for such a high price. Left items in the bath that had value but no call regarding them. The room was immaculate and the breakfast was great.

Perfect Anniversary Getaway

4.8 on May 14, 2017

The Celebration cabin was the perfect first anniversary spot: no TV, lots of birdsong, a jacuzzi tub and fireplace. Wave after wave of thunder and lightning on our first night simply enhanced the cozy magic. The food was delicious and cheerfully served, accommodating my vegetarian requests without hestitation. The trails were a pleasant diversion and the nearby Edge of Appalachia Preserve areas offered more challenging hikes. If you can, stay two nights to really unplug, try the pizza fired in their hand built oven if it's offered, and father with other guests around the fire pit after dinner. It wasn't until we were checking out and I read other guests' notes inthe little notebook in our cabin that I saw they'd have been willing to deliver breakfast to our room; I might have tried that if I'd known. Everyone we met had been there before, and I'm sure we will return.

Without a doubt the best Bed & Breakfast we ever stayed!!!!

5 on May 14, 2017

We stayed in one of the cabins. Every part of the cabin inside and out was clean, comfortable and inviting. We had a little greeter on our porch by the name of Jack (cat), he walked the trails on the property with us that day. We like that extra touch whether it is a cat or dog! That evening we had one of the most delicious meals we have had in a long time at a B&B. There was no television in the cabin, cards, checkers and games a Jacuzzi; it was wonderful. The first night it rained and you could hear it on the roof top. After a delicious breakfast we came back to the room, pulled our chairs over in front of the fireplace, had another cup of coffee and relaxed more! We will be back for sure, already talking about coming back in late fall. Last but not least the staff was friendly and very efficient and the chef made outstanding dishes! We would like to thank them all for what was truly the best experience at a B&B we have had in a long time!

Lovely place to spend a weekend!

4.6 on May 10, 2017

The cabin was amazingly--comfy, bright with all the amenities. The food at breakfast and dinner was superb -- tasty and fresh. The mushroom soup was the best I have had! The people were friendly and welcoming. All in all, a wonderful place to spend a fun, relaxing weekend.

Murphin Ridge Inn

4.0 on May 03, 2017

I wanted to give a rating of "outstanding" on all the catagories, but it would only let me go as high as exceeded my expectations. My husband and I loved our stay and cant wait to go back.

Quiet place in the country

4.6 on May 01, 2017

We stayed in the main lodge. The rooms were quiet and comfortable with a great view out across the lawn and fields. We had breakfasts and dinners at the Inn. The food was good and the portions generous, so we had leftovers for lunches. In the daytime we hiked the property, drove to nearby parks, and went bicycling.In the evening we sat in front of the fire pit and talked with another couple.

Murphin Ridge Inn is a great get away

5 on April 30, 2017

Carol and I had a great time. Food was outstanding

Great Place to Get Away

5 on April 25, 2017

This is an excellent place to get away from your busy life and enjoy some peace and quiet. The food and service is exceptional. You will not leave hungry. If you can get a room with a porch, go for it. We saw 2 of the most beautiful sunrises ever. We will definitely return for more visits.

Serene, peaceful getaway

5 on April 25, 2017

I loved the fact that there were no TVs in the rooms. Time to reflect, forget about stress for a little while and get back to basics.


5 on April 23, 2017

This place was wonderful. It was the perfect place dor my husband and I to fall in love all over again. We aill be back!

Great Time in the Country

4.6 on April 19, 2017

This Inn is over a mile off the highway. It is truly secluded, and beautiful. Lots of space to just hang out and be with Nature. The breakfasts and dinners were homemade and delicious. We will definitely return.

Great Weekend Getaway

5 on April 13, 2017

The most amazing weekend we have had, the food was outstanding, the Inn Keepers and staff were beyond exemplary. Grounds are well kept, cabins are clean. Great place to go and relax. We will definitely visit again.

March 2017

4.6 on April 05, 2017

Everything about Murphin Ridge is always top notch. True its a bit pricey but well worth an annual visit.

As always this continues to be our go to placwe for a week end get away. Gerry and Paula make this a "family" retreat week end that i always look forward to.

Wonderful Stay

5 on March 30, 2017

The Murphin Ridge is our favorite local getaway. We have been going well over 20 years. Jerry and Marjorie are the third owners and they are great. The cabins are our favorite and we even had breakfast in our Cabin. The food served was world class. I had the best pork chop in my life! Murphin Ridge is in the heart of Amish Country and there are a lot of activities such as hiking and antiquing. You cannot pick a better getaway.

Beyond Perfection

5 on March 29, 2017

If you are searching for a romantic cabin, a tranquil setting, outstanding and friendly service, superb food and the beauty of nature, look no further! I rented one of the cabins for a little getaway for my boyfriend's 50th birthday. He loves nature, and I love amenities ~ Bingo! This was perfect! The staff has thought out every little detail to make your stay as stress free as possible. Even Mother nature cooperated, giving us 75 degree weather in March! We will definitely return, and since WE GOT ENGAGED right on the rustic front porch in our PJs (afterward enjoying the yummy breakfast in our rockers!), we most definitely will have to come back if just to relive that beautiful memory. The name of our cabin, Celebration, really did encompass our stay! The food is delectable and prepared with pride. A place you are catered to while at the same time, enjoying privacy. If there were six stars, I'd give them that!!

Excellent stay

5 on March 22, 2017

We spent two nights in a cabin and had dinner in the restaurant. Everything was perfect. The staff was friendly and helpful. Food excellent.

Great place to get away from it all!

4.8 on March 21, 2017

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.

Dingess Honeymoon

5 on March 16, 2017

The dinner was a little pricey but the cabin and service was top notch!!!! Thank you for a wonderful honeymoon. We are coming back!

Recent Stay

4.6 on March 15, 2017

My husband and I stay at Murphin Ridge at least twice a year. A beautiful and charming stay each time. Anytime of the year, the stay is always great. If you are looking for rest and relaxation this is the place.

Super Relaxing Stay!

5 on March 14, 2017

Our first visit to Murphin Ridge will be the beginning of many more for us! We were so pleasantly surprised by the quiet, peaceful surroundings and the food is outstanding! The staff and the owners really know how to make their guests feel at home. We also enjoyed meeting the other guests who seemed to be enjoying their stay as much as we were. We stayed in a cabin and it was amazing.. We will be back!

The Perfect Hideaway

5 on March 14, 2017

This was my wife and I's fourth time here and it was great as always. The weather outside was cold but the cabin was warm and sooo relaxing. The food was excellent as usual and the staff treat you like long lost relatives. We will definitely plan on coming again. We recommend this place highly!

Best Bed & Breakfast

5 on March 08, 2017

It's our favorite Bed and Breakfast. Great place to relax and unwind, great food, friendly staff! I highly recommend it!

Wonderful stay...

4.8 on March 08, 2017

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.

Fantastic weekend getaway!

5 on March 05, 2017

This was our first visit to Murphin Ridge Inn and we weren't disappointed! The cabin was cozy and clean. The food was AMAZING! Looking forward to going back.

THE place to disconnect and recharge!

4.8 on March 04, 2017

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!

Valentine's Day Get-Away

The food was fabulous, the cabin very cozy, and the staff very nice. Murphin Ridge was not too far from home, but yet just enough to feel we had been away.

Wonderful weekend

4.8 on March 01, 2017

We enjoyed a quiet and relaxing weekend at Murphin Ridge Inn. The property provided a peaceful getaway including hiking, the wonderful cabin, excellent dining, and access to antique shops and historic sites.

Beyong our Imagination

5 on February 27, 2017

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.

Wonderful stay

4.6 on February 25, 2017

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.

Class in the woods

5 on February 25, 2017

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.

A Great Getaway

5 on February 18, 2017

We had a wonderful time for a Valentine Getaway! The food, staff, cabin were all fabulous. The countryside setting is beautiful even in the winter. We went on a nice walk through the woods on a recommended path. We really felt like we had been away even though it was just for one night!

Carol's cabin # 1

5 on February 15, 2017

Quiet and secluded. All of the staff and the owners go above and beyond to make sure your needs are being met. Can't wait to go back.

Top Notch Service and Accomodations

5 on February 14, 2017

Murphin Ridge is the perfect place for a romantic getaway. We stayed in a beautiful rustic cabin with a fireplace. We felt pampered from the moment we arrived; from a couples massage in our cabin to fresh baked cookies left on our porch. The restaurant food was surprisingly superb- seriously like a high-end restaurant. And the service is impeccable. I love the family-run business where they make you feel special and welcomed. It was just what we needed to get away from the hustle and bustle!

Simple Relaxation

4.8 on February 10, 2017

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.

Favorite Ohio Getaway

4.6 on February 09, 2017

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!


3.8 on February 07, 2017

Very quiet, calm and relaxing overnight stay with great dinner and breakfast. Will come again for sure!

Great weekeknd get-away!

5 on February 05, 2017

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!

R&R Retreat 1/22/17

January stay

5 on January 25, 2017

Excellent relaxing place to stay. The food was outstanding. Highly recommend!!!

Joe's Place

4.0 on January 19, 2017

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.

Amish country get away

This is a lovely little inn that offers a quiet, contemplative place to rest & rejuvenate. It's one of our favorite places to go & relax.

Peaceful on the Ridge

5 on January 03, 2017

Celebrating my husband's birthday and my cousin and her husband joined us for their first time and she said it is now her favorite place to go. We have been there too many times to count.

Amazing Food

5 on January 01, 2017

We had a wonderful stay. The dinner was superb and well worth the price. Every item was perfect. The complimentary breakfast was worth getting up earlier than we otherwise would have. It was a very relaxing trip.

Always a Winner!

5 on January 01, 2017

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.

Christmas Stay

4.4 on December 30, 2016

Its a great get away the staff & food is great if you have not stayed or ate there its a must.

Delicious breakfast!!

4.8 on December 24, 2016

Perfect Getaway!

5 on December 07, 2016

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!

Beautiful Property

4.6 on December 06, 2016

Enjoyed our stay very much. Breakfast was superb. The homemade granola was excellent. I was only disappointed with dinner. Salad was so-so, soup good, pork chop needed gravy or a dipping sauce.

a pleasant stay

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!

A favorite over the years

4.6 on November 09, 2016

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!

Great getaway close to home

4.8 on November 05, 2016

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.

Three Sisters cabin

3.6 on November 02, 2016

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.

We shall return

4.2 on October 27, 2016

Great host and hostess, great food, great grounds, great atmosphere. In addition you are surrounded by Amish businesses, furniture store, restaurants and bakeries. We'll be back.

Could not have been better!

5 on October 27, 2016

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!

Great weekend break.

4.6 on October 24, 2016

The inn is well away from major roads in a forested area with several enjoyable hiking paths. The room was well-appointed, the staff extremely friendly and helpful to a fault. All of the meals were excellent, and we left refreshed and rejuvenated.

Amazing atmosphere and food!

5 on October 22, 2016

Love Murphin Ridge! I highly recommend the steak and the caramel cider vodka. Owners are alway gracious and welcoming. Great place to relax and unwind!

We'll be back!!

5 on October 17, 2016

Jerry and Paula are the perfect innkeepers. Great food; very clean and attractive lodging; gorgeous grounds with trails, bonfire site; outdoor patio option for eating, weather permitting.

college reunion

5 on October 16, 2016

We met several couples at Murphin Ridge for a night in October; we are all Miami grads and enjoy getting together with each other. We had such a wonderful time that one couple is planning to have their 50th anniversary gathering there. The lodging, food, hosts , bonfire, actually everything, was lovely. We all highly recommend it.

Wonderful getaway

5 on October 15, 2016

Quiet, peaceful accommodations. Best food we've ever eaten. The staff was very knowledgable, courteous and friendly. Looking forward to a return visit.

A slice of heaven

5 on October 12, 2016

The Inn has options of standard rooms or quaint cabins in the woods. The staff could not have been more accommodating and the food was decadent. After dinner each night we went out to the fire pit and watched the stars. We have already made reservations to go back.

Great weekend break.

4.8 on October 12, 2016

The inn is set well away from major roads and finding it was an interesting ride - GPS was helpful. Check-in was quick and efficient and we were soon in our room, which was clean and spacious with an excellent view. The air-conditioning appears to have been over-powered, and the gale coming from the vents caused the grill over the vent to shake. Meals, including box lunches, were of excellent quality and service was friendly, efficient, and accommodating. The grounds offer several walking paths and we enjoyed the evenings sitting around the fire ring with other guests engaging in pleasant conversation. It was a very enjoyable stay, and I will recommend to others.

Nice relaxing stay

5 on October 10, 2016

Had a great long weekend at the Murphin Ridge Inn. Stayed in one of the cabins - comfortable and very clean. The food was outstanding and the atmosphere was very welcoming. Will definitely be back.

Romantic Getaway, Peaceful Relaxation and Wonderful Dining

4.8 on October 03, 2016

The Cabin was beautiful and the little extra's are top notch. We ordered a fruit and cheese tray and chocolate covered strawberries to find them perfectly wrapped with ribbons awaiting in our cabin on arrival. They were absolutely amazing so delicious!

Fabulous Weekend

5 on October 02, 2016

We've been to Murphin Ridge four times and this was the best so far. We've always stayed in a cabin and we were in The Donald this time. This was our first time with the new owners. Room clean and extra towels and sheets happily delivered on request. Breakfast both Saturday and Sunday was fine, buy dinners both nights were incredible and I am a foodie! Relaxing and romantic. We look forward to our next visit.

Great stay

5 on September 28, 2016

This is our second stay here. The food is amazing!! We stayed in the cabins & were very impressed!

wonderful bed and breakfast

4.2 on September 23, 2016

Enjoyed the hospitality, food and charming bed and breakfast. I would recommend this to other friends.

A great little getaway!

4.8 on September 21, 2016

We had a delightful getaway the rest and relax.

Relaxing time in the country

3.8 on September 20, 2016

We had a room in one of the cabins. The room is very upscale, very intimate. There is no place to sit, other than on the tall bed or on one of the two comfy chairs. In good weather, it's also nice to sit on the rustic chairs or swing out on the porch. The glassed-in shower stall and the open jacuzzi mean that you and your partner will be on very inimate terms! The breakfast at the main building's indoor/outdoor dining area was wonderful.

Birthday celebration

5 on September 12, 2016

Secluded, great atmosphere, delicious food, wonderful, friendly and helpful staff. We will have a return visit!

4.6 on September 04, 2016

Our First Time Visiting Murphin Inn

3.0 on August 31, 2016

Wonderful Wonderful B and B. Great Food, nice Inn Keepers, tons of things to do, great spacious cabins, already have dates on when we can return. The ONLY thing I would suggest is better markings on the Red Dog Trail. It was poorly marked and we got lost in the woods. After climbing thru poision ivy for about a half hour we finally got back on the trail that led us back... but it was rough for a short stint.

Innkeeper Response
Thanks for your review.......we are in the process of making up more signage........we always recommend the use of the trail maps that we hand out at check in time.......we have been extremely busy and have not accomplished all the things we plan to do with the trails......Thank you

- Jerry (innkeeper)

Anniversary trip

Enjoyed the pool and hiking. Food was delicious as always!'

Business Trip

5 on August 31, 2016

The Murphin Ridge Inn is by far my favorite place to stay in the Ohio area. They are so friendly, the place is amazing, and the food is delicious!

Quite getaway weekend

5 on August 29, 2016

Beautiful and peaceful , in Amish community , service was off the charts , delicious meals . My wife and I did a lot of hiking and site seeing during the day and enjoyed the evening dining and relaxing .

Reunion Week End

Had wonderful weekend with grade school friends. Surroundings great and food and real treat. Even rain not a problem.

Quiet and Relaxing

4.6 on August 23, 2016

My husband and I like to get away in the country. Murphin Ridge was wonderful. It was quiet, relaxing, the food was excellent and the people were very friendly (employees and other guests). We are planning on taking our friends back with us. Pam J Lebanon OH

Perfect Romantic Getaway!

5 on August 17, 2016

I cannot say enough good things about Murphin Ridge Inn. We first stayed last March and absolutely loved it. The cabins are amazing, you cannot ask for anything better. The food is also wonderful. I look forward to the smoked sausage every time we visit. The ribs are also outstanding. As soon as we left last March, we immediately booked another stay for our Anniversary in August. It was nothing short of spectacular again. My wife is already bugging me about getting the next trip on the books.


4.8 on August 12, 2016

The lower rating of "exceeded my expectations" for "Value" is because the cost seems a bit on the pricey side, but it is well worth it! We stayed in one of the Amish-built cabins which are comfortable, cozy, well-appointed, and relatively secluded in their wooded setting. The owners and staff are all friendly and eager to ensure a wonderful stay at this inn. The breakfasts and dinners provided were delicious and well presented. We plan on staying with them again!

wonderful stay!

5 on August 12, 2016

Love this place! Cant wait to go back!!

What a Pleasant Surprise this was

5 on August 08, 2016

Secluded in the hills of Adams County is a wonderful, relaxing bed and breakfast. You have got to check this one out. we hope to return sometime in the near future.

Perfect One Night Getaway from Northern Kentucky

4.6 on August 08, 2016

We decided to get away from our hectic schedule, just the two of us, for one night. We chose Murphin Ridge because it was only about an hour an a half from home, so far enough, but not too far. From the moment we got to Adams County it was perfectly what we were looking for. The pace is much slower here. The cabin was amazing! The grounds are beautiful. We had dinner and breakfast at the property and both were delicious. The staff was very friendly and helpful. We definitely plan to return.

Perfect Retreat

5 on August 05, 2016

The Inn is fantastic. All aspects of our stay were outstanding. My only regret was not staying another night.

Murphin Ridge Inn

4.8 on August 02, 2016

Wonderful stay! Innkeepers and staff were so courteous and accommodating. The surroundings were peaceful and relaxing. Food was delicious. Thanks Paula, Jerry and Margie. .

Love this place!!

5 on August 01, 2016

Went back after 8 years away, took this kids this time. Absolutely so glad to be back and cant wait to get back to the solitude of this spot!

Morphine Ridge cabin getaway

4.8 on July 25, 2016

Loved our stay. The cabin was beautiful. A peaceful setting with delicious on site meals!

A Relaxing Getaway

5 on July 21, 2016

Beautiful cabins inside, very clean. Nice place to relax and enjoy nature. Food delicious. Staff helpful for different events in area

Perfect romantic getaway!

5 on July 20, 2016

The cabin...the property....the food, I don't even know where to begin! This place is wonderful! We stayed in the Frolic cabin. It was extremely clean and well maintained. The cabins are quiet and very private, we loved beginning our mornings watching the sun come up from the rocking chairs on the front porch. The property itself is beautiful. We walked a few of the trails. It had rained the night before so obviously it was a muddy hike, but it's obvious that the trails are well maintained. We loved taking walks after our meals. The food was out of this world! They have a set menu for breakfast and its included in the price of your room (but I get the feeling that you could practically order anything for breakfast and they would make it for you if they have it) the owner makes his own sausage and it was amazing! We also decided to get a boxed lunch the second day we were there. It's relatively cheap and you get a TON of food. The dinner menu is small, but packed full of delicious options. We had trouble deciding what to get each night and always left full and satisfied. We will definitely be returning! the owners are wonderful people and all of the staff are extremely polite and seem to really enjoy their jobs. Thank you for a wonderful time!! ~Chrissy Zimmerman


4.6 on July 19, 2016

Great family getaway from the day to day busy life! Enjoyed our hike and games! Food was fabulous !

Enjoyable stay

4.4 on July 18, 2016

What a relaxing weekend we had over July 4. Though it rained most of the time, we enjoyed our stay. Do wish we had had a TV in our room. Campfire was nice in the evening between storms and rain showers. Breakfasts we great. Dinner was a bit overpriced. Parking was less than satisfactory since someone gouged a four inch scratch in the side of our car by back driver's side wheel. Much more than could be waxed out. We never moved our car the whole time we were there., so it happened between arrival and departure. Next trip we hope to stay in a cabin. We walked in rain though cabin areas. They are very nice. campfire

Serene Getaway

4.2 on July 18, 2016

Murphin Ridge Inn was lovely. Despite the rain, we had a lovely hike on the property and met some interesting people around the campfire.

New favorite!

4.6 on July 15, 2016

This was the perfect place to relax and unwind. Beautiful property, very friendly and welcoming staff, and amazing rural scenery. We stayed in a queen cabin, but also toured the guest house thinking of future trips with the kids. Everything looks very homely, the furniture and decor are unique to every cabin and room. The rocking chairs were so comfortable I might end up buying one to take home next time. To top it all off, breakfast was ridiculously good. We definitely just found our retreat destination.

Murphin Ridge is Awesome!

5 on July 15, 2016

Murphin Ridge is the perfect getaway. It's meticulous, quiet, beautiful country, great food and very nice staff.

Nice Visit

4.8 on July 13, 2016

Visiting friends who live in Peebles, OH. We spent the day visiting numerous sites in West Union and Peebles; enjoyed dinner at the Inn; an evening chat by the "fire pit" with our friends after a very delicious dinner. My wife and I stayed at the Inn. We thoroughing enjoyed te accomodations within Room 2 of the Inn. We intend to come back to the Inn next year for a longer stay -- maybe in one of the cabins.

We LOVE Murphin Ridge!!!!

5 on July 12, 2016

We love visiting Murphin Ridge. It allows us to relax and enjoy one anothers company without any outside distractions. It is so peaceful!

A wonderful, relaxing weekend.

4.8 on July 07, 2016

Even though it was a rainy weekend, we relaxed, enjoyed the good food and laid back. Do wish we had had a tv in room. Staff was extremely helpful and cheerful. Campfire was a great experience. Even throughout the rainy days, we were able to work in camp fire. Next stay, we plan to rent a cabin. Thanks you for making it an enjoyable weekend.

Anniversary 2016

3.6 on July 07, 2016

Excellent service. Breakfast better than dinner, which, while good, was overpriced.

The best place to just relax and get away from it all..

5 on July 06, 2016

This was just the best 2night get away we have had. No tv, no internet in the cabin, just time to relax. The cabin was perfect and had all we needed. The staff and owners were extremely nice. The food was amazing, the best we had tasted in a long time and the service was first class. The setting was perfect. It was our first time, but will not be our last. We have found our recharge. Highly recommended ¿¿¿¿¿¿¿¿¿¿¿¿¿¿¿¿¿¿¿¿¿¿

Great Weekend Getaway

3.8 on July 05, 2016

Murphin Ridge provided a perfect setting for a relaxing weekend getaway. The grounds were beautiful, and the onsite restaurant was outstanding. We especially liked the outdoor dining area.

Visit to Adams County

4.8 on July 02, 2016

Originally from Wheelersburg, OH and now reside in Orlando, FL. We were visiting the area and ate dinner at the Inn and remained over night in Room 2 of the Inn. The meal was excellent, service from a very polite staff was superb. We enjoyed dining with our friends with occassional interface with the staff; my roomie is a retired schoolteacher and girls' basketball coach from Peebles, so just about everyone knows him. Wen departing in Inn we enjoyed the outside firepit area. Our room was very clean and we enjoyed the remainder of our evening in a rocker on the small balcony. We will be coming back.

Excellent first time visit

5 on June 29, 2016

Have Heard about Murphin Ridge from friends for years. We were able to go with some friends and spend the weekend. Wonderful countryside and so much to do at Murphin Ridge: tennis, croquet, Chinese checkers, swimming, hiking, and the food was amazing. Jerry's smoked ribs were amazing and the onion bisque was top notch. we finished each evening with a nice time sharing with other guests around the fire... Truly memorable.

Exceedingly Impressive - Will be Back!

5 on June 29, 2016

We chose to stay at Murphin for the short summer vacation we took this year, and are now going to make it a tradition because of how lovely our trip was. The food was superb - we had originally planned on one dinner at the Inn, and ended up having two. We stayed in Celebration cabin - cabin 8. It was perfect, and private, and I could talk about it forever, so I'll just leave you this. If you're on the fence about making reservation at Murphin, make the reservations. You won't regret it.

Another great stay

5 on June 24, 2016

Murphin Ridge remains top notch. Couldn't ask for nicer accommodations or service. They even served us breakfast earlier to help our schedule. Can't wait to come back.

A "babymoon" to remember!

4.8 on June 21, 2016

We headed to Murphin Ridge Inn to celebrate our "final hurrah" as a couple without kids, and boy was it worth the trip! We stayed in the Inn, and our room was clean and much bigger than the pictures on the website make it look! :) The food was incredible; we NEVER went hungry. All of the other guests were pleasant and talkative and fun to get to know, and our in-room massages were glorious. Thoroughly enjoying my robe and Amish pickles (from the pre-baby getaway package that they added to our room when we told them we were getting away for our "babymoon"!)! Thank you Murphin Ridge Inn, we will definitely be back!! Pro tip: If you like hiking, definitely check out the Buzzardroost Rock hike in the Edge of Appalachia Preserve. And if you are visiting in late summer/early fall, definitely head to the Chapparal Prairie to see all the beautiful blooms! Serpent Mound is a cool place to visit at the summer and winter solstices. Most importantly, enjoy!!!

Expectations Exceeded...Again!

5 on June 20, 2016

My wife and I just completed our 3rd visit to "The Ridge", and were so very pleased with entire experience! This has become our "go-to" place when we need a getaway, and need time to relax and recharge. The staff was amazing, and the dining out of this world. Jerry's work behind the smoker and wood fired pizza oven is something not to be missed....not to mention his fried chicken! Already anticipating our next visit! Special thanks for an outstanding job! Doug Alliston

Great place to relax and enjoy really good food.

A gem of a retreat

4.8 on June 07, 2016

Spent 2 delightful days at the Murphin Ridge Inn. It takes a bit of effort to find and get there, but it is worth it. Lovely scenery, quiet, quaint and great staff. The accommodations are simple, but comfortable. The food is excellent, tasty and fresh, the highlight of the visit. Innkeepers Gerald and Paula are like family. We will go back again.

Awesome 15th anniversary weekend

4.8 on June 05, 2016

If you want to get off the grid for a nice relaxing weekend, you must visit this hidden gem in southern Ohio. Owners and staff are very down to earth people and friendly. Cabins have a nice layout and include all u need. Scenery is amazing and plenty to do. Also, their menu maybe small bit the food is amazing!!! You will not be disappointed.

Perfect Getaway

5 on May 28, 2016

Murphin Ridge is a magical place that is perfect for a getaway. It was so much fun visiting the local Amish businesses, having a fabulous meal, and finally sitting around the evening bonfire.


4.0 on May 27, 2016

This was a very relaxing stay! Great place to relax and get away from everyday business. Food at the inndining room was great. Little pricey but quality was great.

Wonderful honeymoon getaway

5 on May 26, 2016

This was a perfect little weekend honeymoon getaway! The staff were wonderful and very helpful. The cabin was clean and very cute. And, well, Jacuzzi tub with a fire place is defiantly a bonus. We asked the waiter at breakfast a few good places to hike, and they didn't disappoint! Would recommend going into Peebles to the Green Beanery as well. We are planning on going back for our anniversaries to come ¿¿

Absolutely perfect getaway

5 on May 18, 2016

Wanted a getaway and found Murphin Ridge Inn the perfect place. The food was over the top great. We will have the brick oven pizza next time. The burger is the best you will ever have and the Saturday night ribs are a must! Recommend the hikers package for the lunch and the massage. It all just made for the perfect weekend for husband and wife. No wonder all the other guests we met said they had been there many times before. Put this place on your weekend schedule!

Relaxing and beautiful!

5 on May 15, 2016

It was the perfect getaway for my husband and I.

Perfect GetaWay

4.8 on May 15, 2016

We did a weeknight women's stay for our group of 6. We shared rooms in the lodge and the "common area" gave plenty of room for late night games and cards. It poured rain but the rockers on the covered front porch were very accommodating (along with the large golf umbrellas furnished by the Ridge). Dinner offered a nice variety with homemade soups and salads, along with our entrees. Amish merchants in the area offer a nice side adventure to the quiet and peaceful inn setting. Will certainly return!

Another Relaxing Getaway

5 on May 12, 2016

We took my 91 year old mother to the Inn for a relaxing Mother's Day and overnight stay. She enjoyed the getaway. The ramp to the guest house and the walkway to the Inn enabled her to use her walker. We were able to use the side door to enter the restaurant without using the stone steps in the front of the Inn. As always, the Inn Keepers and the staff were friendly and very accommodating. The food was excellent. The rooms clean and quiet. We love going to Murphin Ridge Inn for a quiet escape from our busy lives.

100% spectacular

5 on May 02, 2016

My wife and I needed a getaway for a weekend and this is where we found it!! There is a little bit of everything here and the inn keepers have thought of everything. We got in a little early was a cheerfully greeted by the inn keeper. She gave us a run down of what to expect and all of the relaxing and rejuvenating nature trails and sights in the area. The location of murph in ridge had a few trails on site that were spectacular for a shot walk or just some quiet time in the woods. The cabins are very well kept clean and romantic. My wife loves the jacuzzi and being able to look out into the woods while enjoying a hot bath. The food in site was nothing less than excellent Saturday night the inn offers ribs that are slow cooked for an entire day. FANTASTIC!!! My wife and I had an absolutely amazing time (recommend spending the day at Davis memorial....bring your walking shoes) we definitely will be back!!!!

Romantic Anniversary getaway

5 on May 02, 2016

Quite and relaxing surroundings. The staff was courteous and attended to our every need. The pancakes were the best ever! The flourless chocolate cake is fantastic. We also loved the fire pit were we could relax under the stars. We would recommend this to anyone who wants a place for peace and romance. We will be back again!

Wonderful cousins weekend

5 on April 27, 2016

My sister and two cousins recently spent Friday and Saturday night at Murphin Ridge Inn. Two of us were in cabins and two in the guest house. All of us couldn't have been more pleased with our selections. We had made dinner reservations for our first night at the Inn and were blown away by the food and hospitality! We had planned to go elsewhere for dinner on Saturday night but decided to eat at the Inn again and were so glad we did!


4.8 on April 26, 2016

great weather, beautiful, quiet , secluded setting

A lovely oasis in a remote location

4.0 on April 25, 2016

What a beautiful stay we had! Lovely grounds surrounding the Inn. The only request I would ask is to place a sign at the entrance off the main road in addition to a street sign Those without a gps system would have a difficult time finding this remote location. Will return for sure. Thank you from Brecksville OH

Totally enjoyed

5 on April 15, 2016

My wife and I needed to get away for a few days and this was the perfect spot. We were away from all the distractions and could enjoy just being together.

Cabins outstanding! Have stayed before and the food was great! This time the food was not so good. We chose murphin ridge because we like quite and the grounds also because food is on cite, this time we left grounds on the the second night to go and eat so we could

4.0 on April 07, 2016

We have stayed at Murphin Ridge before, love the cabins and the grounds and because there is on cite dinning it was wonderful! This time they may have a new chef , the food not so good this time. We left the ground the second night to eat, the purpose of our trip was to relax not to drive 20 miles to eat! But again everyone was supper and the cabin great just not the food.

Innkeeper Response
Thank you for your stay and your feedback, please call us or email us with the details of your dining experience, we work very hard to ensure that the meals are of utmost quality. Thanks again, Jerry

Great get away

We went looking for a relaxing time away from work and electronics. Perfect fit, thanks.

Romantic Night Away

4.8 on March 17, 2016

Highly recommend Murphin Ridge Inn, we have been trying to stay here far awhile, and finally found the time. So glad we did, it was the perfect night away....We will be back soon...

Wonderful Getaway

5 on March 10, 2016

My wife and I returned to the Inn to celebrate her birthday. At the end of our stay her comment was that "the Inn was the perfect place to have taken her". We found the owners and staff to be outgoing and friendly and went out of their way to make our stay memorable. The food was excellent and well worth the price. We made the mistake of going out for diner one of our three nights there, and will not make that mistake the next time we visit. The atmosphere is one that allows you to find a sense of peace, that few places afford. We will be back soon to enjoy the people and surroundings at Murphin Ridge Inn and the beauty that surrounds it.

Our Favorite Bed and Breakfast

5 on March 08, 2016

We have never had a bad experience at Murphin Ridge. This is our favorite place to relax and unwind. We absolutely love Murphin Ridge! Tom and Liz Adams

One of my Favorite Places, period!

4.8 on March 07, 2016

If you have never visited Murphin Ridge - You simply must! Whether in a cabin or in the Guest House - we have stayed in both on numerous occasions, you will feel as if you are completely taken care of. The rooms and furnishings are wonderful, the setting of the place is serene and just beautiful no matter what time of year. Paula and Jerry and the entire staff will make sure you are most comfortable. And the food is exquisite - breakfast is so wonderful - you will eat more than enough to get to dinner - which is the highlight of any day we are there. Like they say on that TV commercial for another product - Just Do It!

Murphin Ridge Inn

5 on March 02, 2016

Beautiful quiet retreat in Adams County, Ohio. The service, food and accommodations are exceptional. Love staying here.

Beautiful Setting, Nice Clean Accommodations & Friendly Staff

4.2 on February 29, 2016

Great place to go for a romantic weekend or a little R&R. Very remote and peaceful. Food was good, but there wasn't much selection and it was VERY pricey.

Wonderful Weekend Getaway

5 on February 20, 2016

We were happy to find out this was a family owned/operated Inn with a personal touch. My Wife and I stayed in one of the guesthouse rooms on Valentine's Day weekend. It was larger than we expected, with a cozy feel, and serene view looking out over an open field. The service was outstanding from the breakfast and dinner crews, and the larger than average servings of food were delicious. We sprung for the Pre-Baby package (a surprise for my Wife), the goodie basket is high quality and my Wife thoroughly enjoyed her massage while I read in the quiet common room of the guesthouse. We definitely recommend Murphin Ridge to all looking for a quiet getaway where you can unwind.

Beautiful grounds, accommodations and servcie

3.6 on February 18, 2016

This property is situated in a very remote and private setting, perfect for a romantic getaway or to relax and unwind. We stayed at the Guest House which was very clean and nice, but not as rustic as you would expect in this type of setting. I would recommend the cabins, they are more expensive, but really are beautiful. The only downside we had was the food. It was average quality, but very pricy and not a real good selection especially with regard to side dishes. And, there aren't any other dining options nearby, so you were stuck eating there.

Awesome visit. Will be back.

20th Anniversary Getaway

4.6 on February 01, 2016

My husband booked a surprise getaway with Murphin Ridge Inn for our 20th wedding anniversary. I'm pleased to say that it exceeded my expectations. The cabin we rented was spectacular, not to be surpassed by the delicious food every morning at breakfast and evening at dinner. Definitely check out Murphin Ridge if you're looking to recapture the calm in your life. Bill & Tonya Toops Grove City, OH

Cabin retreat

4.8 on January 11, 2016

This was our second time staying at Murphin Ridge. We enjoyed the food, hiking, couple's massage, going to the Amish shops, and visiting with Jack and Roberta (the outside kitties) and Murphy (the pig). Such fun!

Wonderful Stay

5 on January 11, 2016

It has become a bit of a tradition for us to take off a couple of days after Christmas to unwind, just the two of us, at Murphin Ridge Inn. It is so peaceful--the perfect break from the activity leading up to Christmas. We arrived in the evening and had a wonderful dinner which included pleasant conversation with the staff and other guests. I hope I can someday review the complimentary breakfast but, once again, we chose to enjoy a late morning in bed, instead. After our departure, we enjoyed a relaxed visit to the nearby Amish stores and then took a driving tour of the countryside and some of the Amish sites. We stopped for an excellent cup of Hot Chocolate at a nice little coffee shop just of Route 32 in Peebles on our way home to Chillicothe. It was a wonder trip.

Wonderful Christmas

4.4 on January 09, 2016

Great stay as usual. Fun hiking and just getting away from the world.

Great getaway location

5 on January 02, 2016

A delightful 3-day stay. Even with in climate weather, we still has the perfect getaway. All of the staff went out of their way to make our time enjoyable and relaxing.

Excellent B&B

Perfect weekend getaway

Relax in Amish Country

4.8 on December 12, 2015

The views out our window of Amish country, walks in the woods, reading by the fireplace, terrific food and great hosts. A wonderful place to relax. What more could one ask for!

My husband and I stayed here after reading a feature article in Edible Ohio. The menu may be better in the summer when fresh local ingredients are available it was just okay - nothing I could not have made at home.

Wedding weekend stay

5 on December 02, 2015

My frantic weekend for my daughters wedding was calmed with the soothing tranquility of the community of Murphs Inn. Guest were relaxing in chairs viewing the sunset as well as several guest socializing around the fire pit. Children played a shuffle game and Murph the pig ran rampant. I squatted down to greet Murph and he was quite receptive. My next visit will allow for relaxation. The comfy bed and warmth of the fireplace allow for a good nights sleep.

Great place to get away!

5 on November 27, 2015

I felt so at home there. Everything was just perfect. The folks managing the Inn were so warm and friendly. The food and service was, one to ten, a 14! Just the best. The fried chicken was crazy good and the filet mignon just melted in your mouth! We will definitely return, as we made reservations to return before we left. It was so peaceful there.

Birthday celebration

4.8 on November 23, 2015

Our second visit. Once again it was relaxing and beautiful. Our dinner was exceptional. My only complaint was because we were not permitted to have access to our cabin early. We had driven two and a half hours to get there and arrived at two pm , earlier than anticipated. Since it was a Thursday evening and only one other cabin was being occupied it seemed reasonable that we could have access to the room early. Most hotels allow you access early if the room is clean. We were told we couldn't have a key until 3pm. Our choice was to set in the car or drive around some more. We changed shoes in the car , walked around and drove over to the Amish store until 3pm. We felt the staff could have been more accommodating under the circumstances. Otherwise , our stay wonderful.

Wonderful relaxing weekend.

5 on November 19, 2015

Thank you once again for a relaxing restful weekend away. The weather was perfect, so much so we could see the Milky Way shining brightly! The food was amazing as always. Thank you! Thank you!

Another wonderful stay

4.6 on November 14, 2015

Our last minute room request was easily accomdated by the staff. Beautiful views of deer rollicking in the fields. Nice clean room. Loved the robes provided. Great dinner and breakfast. We highly recommend this inn.

Great place to stay for a quiet getawsy

Fall Getaway Weekend

4.8 on November 11, 2015

My husband and I booked this weekend getaway several months ago, and as the time got closer, we were both very much looking forward to leaving home for a weekend to unwind. We asked friends to join us for the weekend, too. We enjoyed our time around the fire pit both before and after our dinner. The weather on Friday evening was warm enough to sit outside on the dining patio, watching Jerry bake pizza in the brick oven. Our meals were all excellent. We enjoyed watching Murphy wander the grounds. We are looking forward to another quiet weekend in a couple of months.

25th Anniversary stay was beautiful!

4.4 on November 08, 2015

We stayed in the Encore cabin and absolutely loved it. Beautiful cabin, wonderful service! We only wish our anniversary was 2 weeks earlier, being here when the tress are in bloom would be magnificent.

Wonderful, relaxing weekend!

4.8 on November 07, 2015

Murphin Ridge Inn is a wonderful place to escape from the pressures of daily life! My mother and I had been looking forward to spending a couple of days together at the inn for several months and our visit lived up to our expectations. Murphin Inn is a beautiful place. We drove over a covered bridge on our way to it. The trails on the property are so pretty and so is walking down the lane where you'll see Amish families driving their buggies. The food at the inn is amazing! My mother loved the fried chicken and the ribs I had were so delicious (and I'm a big fan of Eli's here in Cincinnati). We loved the breakfasts, which are included in your room price. My mother and I both think the inn's restaurant is one of the most charming places we've ever eaten at. Mom and I are planning to come back next summer so we can enjoy the pool, too. Just wish I'd had someone to play tennis with when I was here! I'm going to buy some gift certificates for family members for Christmas because they'd love it here. Service was incredible, such friendly people. Rooms were beautiful, comfortable, and very clean. I just love this place! I'm so looking forward to returning and hope to be greeted again by my new friend, Murphy, the inn's pet pig!

Nice, quiet and secluded. Just what we needed!

4.6 on November 01, 2015

The food was excellent and our cabin was very modern with a secluded feel.

Yearly Customer

I love this place. The owners are very friendly and really make you feel welcome. I have never had a meal I didn't like. My room is always clean and tidy. Any time I request anything, I am responded to and it is always with a smile. This place is peaceful and full of love and friendly people. The camp fire at night is so relaxing and you make friends quickly. I have been coming every year for the last 4 years and plan to keep coming back.


4.2 on October 10, 2015

Very nice place to get away from the crazy city life. Very friendly people and animals. The pet pig will make you smile. The staff goes out of their way to make your stay comfortable.

Fall Get Away

4.8 on October 09, 2015

The cabins were beautiful and rustic all at the same time. It's in a very secluded location with great hiking trails just outside your cabin door. The owner made pizza in a outdoor fireplace for supper. It was the best! If you're looking to get away from it all, this is the place

Nice Stay

5 on October 07, 2015

We stayed at Murphin Ridge Inn for a girl's weekend. We were all happy with our dinner and the breakfasts were wonderful, especially the sausage! The rooms were very clean. I wish we could have spent more time there.

Peaceful Weekend in the woods!

3.8 on September 30, 2015

My husband and I have stayed in B&B's all over the United States. Murphin Ridge is a very unique B & B with the outdoor cabins in the woods, hiking trails, fire pit to enjoy before and after dinner. The grounds are beautiful with lots to explore. Outdoor dining on the patio was very enjoyable, especially watching your pizza bake in their outdoor wood fired oven. Our breakfast the first morning was just ok.....nothing special. But the second morning with the foggy bottom pancakes were very yummy. Would like to see more variation on the menu especially for dinner. We will book and look forward to staying here again. R Miler, Loveland,OH

A Healing Get A Way

4.8 on September 13, 2015

After being in a car accident a year earlier, my wife and I found a wonderful place to relax and enjoy ourselves. Murphin Ridge Inn was the perfect for us,just relaxing by the pool or taking short walks through the woods. The evening were wonderful just sitting by the fire pit and glazing at the stars. What a great place to reconnect with your love one.

great stay

4.4 on September 10, 2015

The best Inn we've ever frequented in Ohio and elsewhere.

Perfectly relaxing

5 on August 19, 2015

The perfect place to spend our wedding night! And they catered to my food allergies for breakfast. Woohoo! We will definitely be coming back!


5 on August 19, 2015

The entire visit was absolutely magical. They even accommodated various food allergies. Extremely hospitable, and absolutely gorgeous.

One of Our Favorites

4.8 on August 16, 2015

My husband and I have made it a habit to stay in at a B&B within a few hours drive of home every year. This year we decided to check out Murphin Ridge Inn, and although the cabin was a bit more than we traditionally spend on our trip, it was the perfect choice! The cabin was comfortable and quiet with a cozy see-through fireplace and two-person jacuzzi tub. On Saturday, we hiked around the inn, then visited Serpent Mound and Lake Adams State Park before stopping at Miller's Bakery & Furniture. We probably could have skipped the state park, but Serpent Mound was interesting. We had dinner Saturday evening at Murphin Ridge Inn, which was also delicious. The food, hospitality and location do not disappoint. This is the perfect spot to get away from it all and just relax! We are definitely planning our next trip back (and for longer than just two nights, hopefully!).

Awesome get away

5 on August 11, 2015

From my phone call to Kelly to being checked out our stay was wonderful. I cannot say enough about the fabulous hospitality of the staff and their kindness. Our room was one of the most comfortable I've slept and room #9 indigo bunting oozed tranquility. I would love to return when in the area. Dining was also a treat with the wonderfully blended flavors for breakfast and dinner options.


5 on August 05, 2015

I had never stayed at Murphin Ridge but it was perfect for us. As a family reunion for our Dad's 90th birthday, there was plenty to see and do in the area as well as on site. There is hiking, tennis, shuffleboard, swimming pool and lots of peace & quiet to enjoy with rustic rocking chairs, not to mention the firepit lit each night---came complete with Adirondack chairs and bug spray! I have stayed in thousands of places over the years---From really good and bad hotels, swanky resorts and, yes, other B&Bs---but Murphin Ridge with it's Amish simplicity of furnishings, the tranquility of venue and hospitality that goes above and beyond anything you might expect....I anxiously await my next visit to this retreat!

Luxury in a quiet, rural setting

5 on July 10, 2015

We enjoyed the private, quiet, luxury of our three-day weekend in early July. Breakfasts and dinners on the patio were excellent. During the days we enjoyed the pool, the trails as well as shopping in the Amish shops and a bit of hill-top golf.

Beautiful, relaxing, peaceful escape

5 on July 09, 2015

We loved our stay. This was our third trip to Murphin. The innkeepers Jerry & Paula are kind, helpful, and easy-going. The food is delicious and made from the freshest ingredients. The cabins are amazing - from the beautiful interiors, to the jetted-soaker tub, to the porch swing & rockers. It is everything we needed to unwind. We enjoyed the outdoor amenities - tennis, walking trails, pool, and lawn games. We can't wait to go back.

Always Excellent

5 on July 08, 2015

Have been coming for many years, multiple times per year. Never been disappointed. Love the uniqueness of the various seasons.

Charming, Peaceful Getaway

3.8 on June 30, 2015

The out of the way location made this Inn a quiet, restful retreat. Our room was very clean. The bed linens were a nice quality and the mattress very comfortable. The bathroom was large and also very clean. We got two great nights of sleep. We sat by the window and drank coffee in the morning as we looked out upon fields and mountains. A couple of deer came into view to add to the charm. Breakfast was very good. The homemade smoked sausage was delicious. There were several ways to handle the food offered, and I had plenty to accommodate a gluten, egg, and dairy free diet. Dinners were also delicious. Saturday night we reserved the smoked ribs. They were outstanding. I've never had ribs like that. The Innkeepers were friendly, helpful, and had a great sense of humor that made for delightful conversations. It was hot in the afternoon, so we went to the pool for a swim. They said the pool was four feet deep, but I don't think so. It was shallow and my feet touched the bottom when I tried to swim. However, the water was clean and felt good on the hot day so we just lolled around in the water for awhile. We liked our stay so much that we've just made reservations to return. That's the best recommendation I can think of.

Lovely mid-Ohio getaway

4.2 on May 28, 2015

We enjoyed our brief stay at Murphin Ridge and would recommend it to anyone traveling to the beautiful farmland of central Ohio. Thank you for a peaceful respite!

Seven year anniversary return to the scene of the crime

4.4 on May 28, 2015

Seven years ago my wife (second marriage for both) and I stayed at Murphin Ridge on our honeymoon. We heard that the Inn had changed hands and were concerned about whether the qualities we loved about the place remained. By and large they have. The breakfast was excellent. The grounds continue to be exceedingly well maintained. It is a quiet retreat place where there is little to but connect - and we found many other couples in second marriages and young couples doing just that. Nearby hiking, Amish shops and serpent's mound are all good opportunities to extend the connection. The new owners are down to earth people who work to make the stay convivial. The Memorial Day dinner was a barbecue, which was fine but very casual, we did not sample the usual fare.

Natural beauty abounds

4.4 on May 28, 2015

If your expectations are in the right place prior to your stay, you will be pleased with your decision to lodge at Murphin Ridge Inn. If you want a break from technology, stay at Murphin Ridge Inn (no television sets in the cabins and slow internet). If you want to hike on flatter ground, stay at Murphin Ridge Inn. If you want to experience semi-Amish hospitality in the land of the Amish, stay at Murphin Ridge Inn. If you want to be miles away from civilization, stay at Murphin Ridge Inn. The cabins are comfortable; the food is tasty; and the experience is refreshing.

YOU should stay here!

4.6 on May 16, 2015

My wife and I have stayed at MANY B+B's. This one ranks right near the top. The grounds are great, fire pit is a nice addition, as is the tennis court. Breakfast and dinner were great! Thanks to Kelly for guiding us to some great places to hike, and to Britany for outstanding service and making our stay so memorable!

Murphin Ridge Inn

5 on May 13, 2015

The cabins are great! Nice and peaceful! We like going to the Murphin Ridge Inn for a quick getaway. It's close to Cincinnati so it's easy to get to but you feel like you are far from home! The grounds are beautiful and staff are great! Highly recommend it to anyone looking for a peaceful getaway.


5 on May 10, 2015

This was a wonderful place! So peaceful and romantic. A really lovely area. I would recommend it to anyone. And GREAT food!

Outstanding Bed and Breakfast Facility

5 on May 07, 2015

We just returned from Murphin Ridge Inn and had a beautiful, relaxing 3 day weekend there. The Innkeepers, Paula and Gerry, are doing a remarkable job. Our room in the Inn was spotless, they also have Amish built cabins, but we choose to stay in an Inn room on this visit. The cabins are great also, as we have stayed in those before. The meals are presented as if they were posing for a food magazine article, and delicious they were. The staff, along with the innkeepers, are helpful and friendly. The nightly campfires are a great time to sit around and get to know some of the other visitors, many were repeat visitors to M.R.I. The setting is beautiful and sits in an Amish area in Southern Ohio. The Amish can be seen doing their daily chores while driving through the gentle rolling hills. There are a couple Amish stores nearby also, where one can buy furniture, bulk foods, bakery items, etc. A great place to sit back and unwind, whether for just a few days, or for much longer. This was our 4th visit, and definitely won't be our last. Stay here and you won't be disappointed............Gloria & Bill

Amazing Place to Stay in OH

5 on May 07, 2015

Randomly selected this inn for a 2 night stay because a concert we would be attending was nearby but found out that Murphin Ridge Inn could be a destinaton all by itself! Beautiful peaceful surroundings yet plenty of shopping and places to see just far enough away to help us stay relaxed and restful. Now hoping my hubby will take me back in the Fall. Friendly, nice people and sweet staff. Loved it!

A relaxing getaway

4.6 on May 04, 2015

My husband and I stayed here for two nights for our wedding anniversary. Rooms: We stayed in a cabin (Celebration) and it was the perfect balance of 'woodsy' and luxury. The cabins are relatively new, and are so comfortable. We enjoyed the peace and quiet, the fireplace and the shower/tub amenities. Everything seemed very clean and well kept. Service: The innkeepers and staff couldn't be nicer. Dining: You can tell most everything is home made. Dinner was pricey but SO good. Breakfast was also amazing. It definitely wasn't health food, but worth the splurge :) Area: If you're looking for a lot of action and adventure, you're in the wrong place. We enjoyed the simple tranquility of the area. The towns are small and don't offer a whole lot of entertainment or dining, but that was fine with us. For lunch we picked up sandwiches at Miller's (a huge Amish store and grocery) which was perfect. We drove around the country side, played games in our cabin and did a crossword puzzle by the fire pit at sunset. It was restful and simple. Beautiful place to visit. We talked about coming back again with a group of friends when life gets crazy. It would be fun to rent the cabins next to each other.

Murphin Ridge is the place to go if you want to get away and relax!

5 on April 30, 2015

The cabins are clean, bright & comfortable. Meals are delicious and the folks are friendly and accommodating. The grounds are well kept and the trails are easy.

Our stay at Murphin Ridge was wonderful! The room was very clean and inviting. The spa tub and fireplace were great elements in our cabin! We loved the restaurant and the pork chop and smashed potatoes were womderful. We also loved the very personable and down to earth staff! Just a great experience.

After hearing the raves for years

4.2 on April 26, 2015

We had heard many good things about murphin ridge inn and our high expectations were met. One always has concerns after a change in ownership yet the service level and quality of food are continuing the tradition.

Murphin Ridge Inn

5 on April 21, 2015

This is an amazing place to get away. My husband and I have been coming for years and always return for a relaxing weekend away. Everything is consistently impeccable from the cleanliness, dining, accommodations and surroundings. Will be back again next year if not before.

Fantastic Stay

4.6 on April 13, 2015

Truly a terrific stay! Our cabin was immaculate, both inside and out. The quiet was so peaceful. The only sounds were the birds, roosters and the occasional clip-clop of horse hooves.The tub and fireplace in the cabin were amazing! The grounds were beautiful and the food was absolutely delicious. Loved the Murphin Ridge Lemonade! Also, enjoyed a visit from the orange cat, Jack. We found him lounging on the front porch of our cabin.

A little disappointed

4.0 on March 27, 2015

The room and surrounding area was wonderful as usual. We were disappointed in the food, especially for the price we paid for our dinner. It was not what we've been used to when we visited in the past.

Innkeeper Response
We are very sorry that you didn't enjoy your dining during your stay. This is not he normal review of our food. I personally spend 12-16 hours a day working to ensure our guests are happy, with 75% of my day focused in the kitchen. I am at a loss for an explanation. Please call me at 877-687-7446 to discuss specifics. I really need to find out what you did not enjoy. Thank you, Jerry

Super Get Away close to Cincinnati

4.8 on March 25, 2015

Murphin Ridge has long had a great reputation and my wife and I wanted to visit. We were impressed. We stayed in Cabin One and the King Bed and Whirlpool tub were great. Cabins One to Six are closer to the lodge and dining area. Cabins Seven to Nine are a bit more private. Each night there was a nice firepit going, and the meals were awesome. Gourmet breakfast on Saturday and Sunday were included in the room price. The dinner options were reasonably priced. The Fried Chicken is a must, and if you enjoy a great burger, the hamburger was made from ground filet! Delicious. The next night we were lucky enough to have some fall off the bone smoked ribs that the owner started that morning at 4 AM. The Inn is near a terrific Amish Bakery and Furniture store. Two friendly cats and a gentle dog are on property and they only bother you if you want them to! Worth the cost. We will be back.

Room, dining and atmosphere surpassed our expectations

5 on March 18, 2015

Wonderful cabin with a comfortable bed, jacuzzi and fireplace. As requested, a cake, cheese and crackers and drinks were waiting for us upon arrival. Breakfasts and dinners were abundant and the service was impeccable. A great value and one of the best weekends ever. Heartily recommend it.

Amazing bed and breakfast!!!!!!

5 on March 04, 2015

My husband and I went here for a weekend was a truly relaxing experience. We were both a little under the weather but it was so nice to enjoy the quiet, the views and each other's company. The service was wonderful, the food was fabulous! We can not wait to return when the weather is warmer so we can take advantage of the hiking trails and the nearby shops. I highly recommend this as a nice couples getaway.

An Amazing Place

5 on March 04, 2015

The cabins were great! It was a very relaxing weekend for me and my wife. The owner and employees were all helpful and extremely friendly. Lastly but by far not the least was the food, this little place can really cook up some food. It was some of the best meals I've ever had.

Winter Break

5 on February 13, 2015

This was our annual February B&B winter getaway. Murphin Ridge is a wonderful place to visit to gain an appreciation of the hills of Southwestern Ohio. As former area residents we had eaten there several times but this was our first overnight. Our accommodations just like our meals were definitely first class. The evening campfire was a nice touch but at 20 degrees we did not linger.

Murphin Ridge Inn - 2.6.2015

4.6 on February 11, 2015

We enjoyed our stay at Murphin Ridge Inn this past weekend. The staff and owners were very friendly and attentive to us in all of our interactions. The food was absolutely wonderful! Jerry's homemade breakfast sausage was delicious. The cabin we stayed in was very well appointed, and had everything we needed, right down to the corkscrew and wine glasses. We could not have found a nicer place to stay to celebrate our winter birthdays.

We spend a weekend at Murphin Ridge every year, and every year continues to be a pleasant surprise. From perfectly appointed, comfortable rooms to incredible food and friendly people it simply can't be beat. The bonus is the surrounding community that always reminds us to find joy in the simple things and beauty in all of creation.

Great B&B. Highl recommended!!

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

5 on January 05, 2015

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

4.8 on December 30, 2014

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

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

5 on December 19, 2014

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!

5 on December 08, 2014

Perfect weekend getaway! Spectacular rustic cabin with 6 head shower, whirlpool tub and double sided fireplace. Amazing food and staff. Owners and staff make you feel like family. Will definitely go back! In fact booked prior to leaving!

Great place!

5 on December 04, 2014

We loved it, and will definitely go back as soon as possible!

A wonderful weekend getaway!

4.2 on November 30, 2014

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

4.8 on November 18, 2014

Wonderful stay. Peaceful, relaxing, beautiful and great food. Will be back.

Relaxing rural retreat

5 on November 12, 2014

A relaxing rural retreat! Great place, great people, great food!

Loved our stay

4.8 on November 12, 2014

My husband and I have gone the Murphin Ridge Inn a few times over the past few years. We recently started in Fantastic Carols for the first time and loved it. Breakfast and dinner were amazing and the cabin was clean and inviting. Murphin Ridge Inn is an amazing retreat to visit and we look forward to visiting again.

Nice quiet get-a-way

4.4 on November 12, 2014

We enjoyed our time spent at Murphin Ridge Inn. The only drawback was the charged 10 dollars more a night than the internet said and the price listed in the room in their reference booklet. The cabin was cozy and the waitresses were nice. However the food was was on the high end for traditional meals. $22 for a regular hamburger, uh no thanks! Won't go back bc I do not feel for the amount of money spent was worth it for what it was.

Excellence at Murphin Ridge Inn

4.8 on November 10, 2014

My wife and I stayed at Murphin Ridge Inn 11/4-11/6 in the main lodge. The double queen room was large, with good sized closet and bath. The shower had very hot water with strong water pressure! They had free coffee and tea in the large sitting area that had a dining table for games or meals, a piano, and several comfortable chairs, with an outside rocking chair porch. The meals are exceptional, from the free breakfast, to the sack lunches and dinner available for purchase. The dinner atmosphere was friendly among other diners and we enjoyed the exceptional service. There is an easy walking path in the forest with Amish neighbors about riding in carriages or on scooters. Quiet, peaceful. They are definitely on our return list, to try a cabin with fireplace and jacuzzi next time.

Nice bed and breakfast

3.2 on November 09, 2014

Nice room, no television was sort of hard to get used to (made us go to bed at 9-9:30). Breakfasts were very good, dinners a bit pricey. Small very quiet dining rooms made us feel a bit uncomfortable.....every one in the room could hear everything we were saying. Couldn't be anonymous. Very far removed from civilization so there were no other options for dinner other than the Murphin Ridge dining room. Would have liked there to have been some some kind of enclosure around the tub, felt like I was out on display in the middle of the room. We enjoyed our stay there but have suggestions on how to improve the experience.


5 on November 09, 2014

My sister and I stayed at the Murphin Ridge Inn last spring. Our room was delightful, so clean and comfortable with a lovely view. The service was wonderful and the food delicious. We have such a great memory of this Inn, that we will probably travel back that way just to stay again!

Wonderful getaway!

4.6 on November 07, 2014

Our first trip to Murphin Ridge and it was better than expected. The food service was excellant. The views were fabulous. Sooooo very relaxing!!

Nov 2014

4.4 on November 06, 2014

This is a fantastic place if you are looking to relax and unwind. The owners are fabulous, and it truly is a much calmer, serene lifestyle for visitors looking to get away.

A gem!

5 on November 03, 2014

Homey, cozy and impeccably clean. This is our "go to" place when we want to get away from it all. The innkeepers are so nice and friendly. The food is outstanding. We really loved Jerry's homemade sausage that we had for breakfast. We'd like to see it for bulk sale! The highlight of our visit this time was the semi tame young deer that Jerry has bottle fed from birth having lost its mother. It came running to the inn door in the evening and let every one pet it before getting her daily bottle. If you like to hike, there are numerous trails in the area ranging from easy to challenging. And of course, don't miss Miller's retail complex just down the road.

Peaceful retreat

4.8 on November 02, 2014

The inn had outstanding service, the owners and staff were friendly, and they had a few things to make the stay extra special. The most memorable was getting to see and pet a baby deer they had helped feed since it's mother died when it was born. The views from sitting around the fire pit at sunset were amazing. We loved the historical aspect of the inn and the luxurious cabins. Thanks for making our 10th anniversary relaxing and special!

Weekend getaway

4.4 on October 22, 2014

The weekend was very romantic and relaxing. Taking a hike in the woods was great. The food was extraordinary. Service was excellent. We have been coming here several times in the last ten years and will be back.

Our Autumn Getaway

5 on October 20, 2014

I could not have been more pleased with our stay at the Murphin Ridge B&B!! The entire staff was so friendly. The grounds were so rustic and especially perfect for enjoying the outside fall weather. The cabin was extremely clean and decorated beautifully. Loved the outside porch with rocking chairs and porch swing. It had rained a little while we were there so it was nice to be able to still sit outside. We thoroughly enjoyed the gas fireplace inside (kept the cabin nice and cozy) and really enjoyed the jet bath tub for two. The food was amazing!!! Very very good. Gourmet in all ways. We will definitely go back there and I would recommend it to anyone.

Return Stay after Many Years

5 on October 18, 2014

We were returning to Murphin Ridge for our 25th Anniversary (after a stay some 15-20 years ago). While the Inn has changed somewhat, the service, food & quality have only improved! Thank you for a great visit! B&L J.

Cabin stay at Murphin Ridge

5 on October 17, 2014

Cannot say enough good things about this gem! I have wanted to go to Murphin Ridge for quite some time and finally got my opportunity. We spent two wonderful nights over Columbus Day in a private cabin...My Cabin. It was a little piece of heaven from the king-sized bed to the two-way fireplace and jet tub. The cabin was clean and comfortable. It was such a relaxing, romantic weekend and the weather was perfect. The staff is exceptional and is very pleasant and accommodating. No request and/or question were an inconvenience. The food was fantastic being made fresh on the spot. You do not leave hungry! I am already looking forward to next year as we booked again. This is definitely going to be our go-to place to un-plug, relax, eat well and enjoy the beautiful outdoors.

Anniversary Get Away

3.6 on October 17, 2014

My sister in law recommended this B&B to us as she had stayed here with her Bible study group in the Spring. We loved the peaceful atmosphere and the fact that there were no children or dogs to disturb that! (love both, but enjoyed the quiet!) We attended the Herb Festival which was close by, then came back and took a nice walk in the woods before dinner which was a bit too pricey for chicken and pork chops. We most defiantly would return, a lovely place indeed!

Wonderful Getaway

4.8 on October 16, 2014

Murphin Ridge Inn is a beautiful property in a lovely, peaceful setting. It was a girl's getaway and my sister remarked that the innkeepers thought of everything. Our dinner was amazing, our room was beautiful and the attention to detail was wonderful.

A quiet lovely spot in the country

4.6 on October 15, 2014

First visit under new ownership. Everyone is anxious to please and I continue to wonder how they keep the large shower doors in the cabins spotless. We felt the food was down a notch, but still appealing. The herb festival was fun even in the mud.

Last Minute Booking, Unexpected Magic

4.6 on October 14, 2014

Last minute plans for a two day trip, desperate scramble for a place to stay I stumbled on the Murphin Ridge Inn on the website for the Serpent Mound. One room left and I snagged it. It looked positively enchanting, something both I and my significant other would enjoy (a surprise for his birthday.) Upon arrival we knew instantly that we had stepped into a serene retreat. The staff was kind and accommodating, answering questions before we could even ask. The Goldfinch room was spacious, clean as a whistle, and comfortable in it's simplicity. The view is spectacular in October, unfortunately rain kept us from hiking. Dinner was fabulous beyond the expected. A younger couple in our twenties we were slightly oddballs there but never felt out of place. Beautiful hideaway in Adams county which I know well and yet had never heard of the Inn. I've been raving about it since our return. How could I not with that delightful breakfast send off? We've vowed to return, we agree it would be a place to behold as a winter wonderland under a blanket of snow. A tremendous round of applause for the staff, chef,and owners who were always present and always inviting.

October stay

4.2 on October 12, 2014

We stayed in the Celebration cabin and thought it was fabulous! Owners were very pleasant. Dinner was pricey.

Great weekend getaway

4.6 on October 09, 2014

We had a wonderful getaway weekend. The staff were incredibly accommodating and friendly. The food was delicious but slightly overpriced for dinner. The grounds were great and this is exactly what my husband and I needed. We left refreshed and rejuvenated.

expected the fall menu in October but the summer menu was still being used. However they did accommidate out second nights dinnger with a warm fall soup. Thanks

4.6 on October 08, 2014

Looking forward to our next anniversay on the ridge!!

Great Stay

4.8 on October 05, 2014

Nothing but the best!

Ahhh..peace and quiet at beautiful Murphin Ridge Inn!

5 on October 01, 2014

Our children and daughter-in law and son-in law gave us a gift certificate to Murphin Ridge Inn some time ago. We finally made plans to go, and are eager to go back again! The staff was friendly and helpful, and breakfasts and dinners were delicious! We enjoyed hiking, meeting people in the dining room or at the bonfire, and stargazing on a beautiful clear night!

Best Bed and Breakfast Ever!

5 on September 27, 2014

We had a wonderful 3 night stay at beautiful Murphin Ridge in. We stayed in a cabin. We dined at the Inn for breakfast and dinner. The food and service was terrific. The Inn keepers were very friendly to their guests as were the rest of the staff. We enjoyed setting around the outdoor fire pit and watching the stars. You can really see them out in the country. We enjoyed walking the easy trails and our day trip to Adam's Lake. We found a flat tire on our van as we were leaving and one staffers was so kind to help us put air in the tire. I would highly recommend Murphin Ridge Inn.

Luxury in Adams County, Oh

4.8 on September 27, 2014

The cabins are extremely nice. Great for a romantic weekend. Whirlpool tub, two sided fireplace, two person shower. The whole complex is very rustic and well maintained.


4.6 on September 18, 2014

The food was excellent.

A little piece of paradise in Ohio

4.6 on September 15, 2014

We came here 10 years ago on our honeymoon and wanted to return for our 10th anniversary. It was still as peaceful and charming as it was then. Murphin Ridge Inn in the perfect place to get away from the craziness of city living and unwind with nature.

Super relaxing B&B!

5 on September 11, 2014

If you are looking for a nice and quiet getaway where the atmosphere, food and service is top notch, look no further. The staff at Murphin Ridge is amazing, the cabins are very clean and tidy and the grounds are so peaceful. We can't wait to come back for another stay.

The accommodations were wonderful, the setting was lovely, the food was outstanding and the hospitality was warm. This is simply the best place anywhere for a quiet get-away.

Great weekend!

Another wonderful time on the Ridge! The Farm to Table dinner was fabulous! We will be back soon. Joe and Diane Columbus, OH

Peaceful stay

5 on September 04, 2014

My husband and I needed a break from the stress of family illnesses during the summer. We retreated to the country at Murphin Ridge Inn for a Labor Day weekend break for one night (all that was available at last minute planning.) We had a delightful afternoon and night in a gorgeous cabin outfitted with a beautiful and comfy king size 4 poster bed, jacuzzi spa tub and spa shower. The property is in a lovely location of rolling hills and farmland in Amish country. The restaurant food is wonderful, well crafted with local herbs and ingredients when possible. One thing to note, there is no alcohol served on Sundays in the restaurant but one can bring your own wine to the cabin! It was so relaxing to unwind by hiking the open very accessible trails, followed by a swim in the pool, and watching the sun set around the fire pit. Friendly people, good food, lovely location. The website is very accurate. I highly recommend the cabins!

anniversary weekend

We stayed in a cabin for 2 days and had a wonderful time! Quiet, peaceful, easy to get to and the food was awesome! We will be back.

Truly Relaxing Stay!

4.4 on August 22, 2014

Murphin Ridge exceeded my expectations! It was the most relaxing bed-and-breakfast day I've ever had. I love the special finishing touches they add to the place. The gardens, the fire pit, the walking trails, etc. were just perfect! The cabin set up was extraordinary! We very much enjoyed our time there and look forward to coming back during all seasons there! thank you!

We love this place!

4.8 on August 21, 2014

Never a surprise here. Quiet, peaceful. Scrumptious food. The innkeepers are the best.

Our Go-To Destination

4.6 on August 18, 2014

My wife and I recently celebrated our 31st wedding anniversary by making a return trip to Murphin Ridge. This has become out go-to destination when we need to relax, eat some great food, and enjoy a beautifully appointed cabin. Every trip to Murphin Ridge has been memorable. Can't wait to go back!

Wonderful Place To Stay

5 on August 18, 2014

We took our teaching staff to Murphin Ridge for a retreat. The staff was very accommodating and the Inn was so peaceful and beautiful. My staff went on and on about how AMAZING this experience was!! The food was OUTSTANDING!!!! They all want to go back again with their families!!!!

Hadn't stayed here in years and don't know why I waited so long. The staff and service are wonderful. Really love the David T, Smith furnishings. Certainly won't wait this long to visit again.

An anniversary evening

5 on August 13, 2014

It was our anniversary--44 years. Very nice evening. We truly enjoyed it all. We sat at the fire pit and enjoyed meeting others. But also sat in rockers and enjoyed some alone time. A good and quiet place.

Breathtaking and relaxing

5 on August 13, 2014

This bed and breakfast thought of everything to make this the most relaxing and delicious weekend. The food was amazing and the accommodations were perfect.

Murphin Ridge Inn

Wonderful getaway!

Excellent experience at Murphin!

4.6 on August 03, 2014

My wife and I spent two enjoyable days at the Murphin. Stayed in a cabin----very comfortable---ice and snacks brought to the room each afternoon. Food was superb, breakfast and dinner each day as well as a boxed lunch. If you are looking for a great getaway in a short drive from Cincinnati, this is it. We're already looking forward to our next visit.

A Perfect Getaway

5 on August 01, 2014

We rented one of the cabins and it was lovely. Quiet, spotless, and very well appointed with all modern conveniences even though we felt like we were in the woods. Hospitality is unsurpassed and the food is excellent at the Inn. If you want R&R, consider Murphin Ridge.

A gem--best weekend getaway I've ever had!

5 on July 31, 2014

A gem--best weekend getaway I've ever had!

Wonderful escape!

4.2 on July 31, 2014

Our second stay at Murphin Ridge Inn was as wonderful as the first. Jerry and Paula are wonderful innkeepers, and their staff is friendly and helpful! MRI is a quiet and restful inn. The walking trails and swimming pool allow one to work-off all the fabulous food they prepare! The cabins are pleasant, yet "rustic" accommodations, with all the comforts of home, and beyond!


5 on July 23, 2014

We went 3 nights in a cabin and enjoyed every minute of our stay! Breakfast and Dinner is amazing! I could go every weekend if I lived closer!

Wonderful and relaxing!

5 on July 23, 2014

The cabin we stayed in was beautiful! There were woods around us and lovely fields. The dining area was in a separate historic barn...the food was a set menu to choose from and was wonderful! The innkeepers were very friendly and accommodating as was all of their staff. I would definitely recommend the Murphin Ridge Inn for people who would like to experience a great stay.

Awesome place!

5 on July 23, 2014

What a great place to stay! We had one of their king cabins and it was terrific! A king sized bed, two recliners, fireplace, two person tub and a big shower with 6 shower heads! It had a small frig, coffee pot and they brought ice each afternoon. The front porch had two rockers plus a swing. The first night we were there it rained and it was relaxing listening to the rain on the porch! Food was FABULOUS! We ate dinner both nights - saturday night we had the best ribs! Breakfast is included in your room and it was also awesome! Sat morning we had homemade smoked breakfast sausage! My husband thought he had died and gone to heaven! Jerry, Paula and their staff are very attentive and take great care of you! We are going back that is for sure!!

Great local Cincinnati get away!!!!!!

5 on July 18, 2014

We simply love the Murphin Ridge Inn. It is a complete package, great rooms, great food , great service, and a beautiful relaxing atmosphere. We will go back whenever possible.

New owners, outstanding job

4.2 on July 16, 2014

This is our second stay with the new owners and they are doing an outstanding job. Fine commitment and attention to guest comfort and expectations. Will be back again next year.

Fabulous place for a quiet anniversary celebration

5 on July 15, 2014

We have stayed at Murphin Ridge Inn for the last several years for our wedding anniversary. The atmosphere is peaceful, the place is beautiful, the food is the best we have ever had, and the service is exceptional. It is worth every penny. We will be back next year!

A place we completely relaxed!! Exceptional service!!

4.4 on July 13, 2014

We will return anytime we need to unwind & relax! We LOVED it! These days seems like the level of service is lacking,but not at Murphin Ridge Inn! It is exceptional,and we really appreciate this! Beautiful cozy,clean lodge & rooms,we felt more relaxed here than anywhere we have stayed. You won't be disappointed,the owners make sure of it!

A Wonderful, Romantic Getaway!

4.6 on July 12, 2014

We LOVED our two-night's stay at Murphin Ridge! Joe's Place (cabin) was wonderful, as was the food and atmosphere. The grounds are well-kept, and we enjoyed starting our days off with a morning 2-mile hike around the property. We can't wait to return!

Everyone should make a trip here!

5 on July 09, 2014

Murphin Ridge Inn is fabulous! we stayed here one night on a stop between North Carolina and Michigan, and chose it because of its proximity to Serpent Mound, which we wanted to see, and because of the excellent reviews online. We were not disappointed! Murphin Ridge Inn exceeded our expectations! The restaurant was fantastic and lovely, the extensive grounds are lovely---I went for an early morning 1 hour walk through woods, fields, saw wildflowers, farm animals, amazing birds. Our room in the guest house was lovely--the neo-Shaker furniture and the simplicity of the decor a welcome change from over-stuffed B ans B's. The service was divine. I asked for flowers to be in our room when we arrived (at a fee of course), and we were greeted with a lovely, generous bouquet of seasonal flowers and greens from Murphin Ridge's own garden. I loved, loved, loved it here, and would love to come back! So peaceful, tasteful, restorative!

Wonderful Getaway

4.8 on July 05, 2014

The cabins at Murphin Ridge are a great place to escape. No TV and no internet in the cabin! Had a great time!

Time Away

4.4 on July 04, 2014

Enjoyable atmosphere, Peaceful . Convenient yet removed from CIncinnati

Beautiful in the summer!

3.4 on July 02, 2014

We've stayed at Murphin Ridge several times, usually in the winter. This year we went in the summer. It was beautiful. The grounds were well cared for, the flowers were in bloom, they have a huge garden. They grow their own food. The new owners Jerry and Janet were very nice. Jerry makes some really great ribs. I really enjoy their breakfast. Always fresh, and they make their own granola. It's worth a visit.

Gracious hospitality; unwind from the world

4.8 on June 29, 2014

Gracious hosts and employees. Relaxing atmosphere. Lovely views. Good and plentiful food.

Quick Trip to Murphin Ridge

Wonderful Cabin

My wife and I had a wonderful weekend. We will be back soon.

A retreat near home

4.4 on June 21, 2014

We've returned 3 years now to the Murphin Ridge Inn. Maybe it's 'our spot,' but we still find it to be a good experience each time we stay. We typically get 2-night stays at the Inn and will eat once in the restaurant. The food: Murphin Ridge is known for it's food, and for good reason. This visit the bread was fresh (one of my let downs last visit was day-old tasting bread). Even if you just stop by for a meal, it's worth it. Specials each night are unique and fun - we even had some wood-fired pizzas one evening we were there. Very tasty. Portions are generous. Hanging out by the fire after a meal is a must. Lots of fun connections and conversations happen there. The rooms: cabins are comfortable and relaxing. No TV, which means: peace. The staff at Murphin Ridge seems always relaxed, very helpful and ready to serve. There's no request that is too much for them. Our favorite thing to do while at Murphin Ridge during the day is simply relax around the grounds. There's plenty of seating, between the guest house and the main building, cabins and random adirondack chairs placed throughout the lawn. There are walking trails for the adventurous, and boxed lunches if you order before hand. Oh, breakfast! There's always something different when we visit (OK, well, the french toast we've had twice now, but who's complaining?). Tasty, tasty, tasty. From what I understand, this is also a meal you can ask for a reservation for (830am-930am). I've got only one issue: we really like good coffee in our family. While MR is great at serving their coffee (my cup is always full), the coffee itself is kind of weak and the roast is not very flavorful. There are many roasters in the Cincinnati area, it would be great to taste some awesome coffee on our next visit.

Best Restoring Get Away ever.

5 on June 20, 2014

Beyond expectations. So rested n mellow hard to get serious again.

Peaceful Respite!

4.8 on June 16, 2014

We have stayed at the Murphin Ridge Inn several times in the past few years and have always found it to be consistently outstanding! It is such a peaceful respite from the real world and we always stay at the cabins which we love. The dinner and breakfast meals were delicious and eating out on the patio for breakfast was an added treat, since it was such a beautiful calm morning. We can't say enough good things about this wonderful place!

Outstanding Weekday Getaway

5 on June 13, 2014

Stayed on a Monday night and had a outstanding experience. The Three Sisters Cabin was fantastic accommodations and the meals were top notch. Great selection on the dinner menu. Staff was very friendly and accommodating. We asked and we're given a late check out on Tuesday so we could enjoy all that the Inn had to offer. Will definitely be coming back again!

Late Spring Sojourn

4.8 on June 11, 2014

Quiet! No TV! My wife and I had a romantic encounter such as we have not had in many years. Murphin Ridge Inn seemed to have been designed with that in mind. The pictures of the accommodations do not do justice to this place. The proprietors and staff were exceedingly friendly, and this just inspires friendliness all around. We enjoyed sitting around the fire pit, chatting with total strangers as if they were long-time neighbors. We've lived in Ohio twenty years, and had no idea that such a beautiful place existed. Oh--and the food is superb too!

A Step Back in Time

5 on June 10, 2014

Unadulterated natural surroundings of beauty and serenity were just what was needed on our 4 day/3 night stay in the Donald, cabin 4. Nestled around Amish farms the sounds of nature fill the air and the stars shine brighter. You take a step back in time to when life was simple and man and nature lived in harmony. You can disconnect from the electronics and relax in a rocking chair on the front porch or enjoy good fellowship with other guests around the fire pit. This place will always be our little oasis to visit when we need to reconnect as a couple or when life gets to hectic. The staff is first rate, food is excellent, and the accommodations are perfect. We planned on staying 2 nights but decided we didn't want to leave so we stayed an extra night. We can't wait till we can return during a different season so have a new experience. Thanks to Gerald, Paula and the entire staff for making our stay so memorable.

a magical and surreal experience

5 on June 09, 2014

my wife and I wanted to celebrate our 10 year anniversary and had received Murphin Ridge as a recommendation from a friend. this is just one of those places where from the moment you arrive it is like entering a world of calm and serene relaxation. the staff is amazing and friendly, and every component of the grounds has an attention to detail that brings a smile to your face in every direction that you walk. the cabin we stayed in was very luxurious and had exactly everything that we needed for our stay. there were little gifts waiting for us. the surrounding woods were peaceful and comforting. the food at the dining hall was incredible, both for dinner and breakfast. i wanted to try everything on the menu. while our stay was expensive I feel that we got our money's worth. just before we left, my wife and I decided to take a hike on the property's nature trails. we thought that they would be simple little trails through a small patch of woods, but again we were pleasantly surprised to find a rather extensive circuit of trails that led through forest and prairie. being avid nature lovers, we enjoyed the variety of birds due to the lush and varied habitat. it was the perfect end to our stay. in short, we would recommend this inn to anyone. my wife and i have already decided to come back for a longer stay in the fall.

week-end get-away

4.8 on June 08, 2014

We spent 2 nights in Cabin #4--just to get away from the city, jobs, and responsibility! It was wonderful--so very quiet and peaceful. The place was full of guests, but didn't seem like it--no waiting on meals, and all service was great. The only improvement I would suggest is better lighting for reading in the chairs in the cabin--only the overheads and hard to see at night. I don't read in bed, so would have appreciated a reading light. We are planning another weekend in the fall. Thank you.

Super, amazing place....quiet, peaceful, clean, yummy!

4.8 on June 05, 2014

Murphin Ridge Inn was the perfect escape from the busy world of having 3 teenage kids and working. It was clean, quiet, a place to reconnect with your spouse, scenic, and the food was outstanding. Will definitely return (hopefully soon)!


4.8 on June 05, 2014

My husband and I stayed in the Celebration Cabin to celebrate our 21st anniversary. It was beautiful! This was our 1st ever stay at a b&b, and I'll have to say, the bar has been set pretty high! The food was amazing!!!!!! The entire staff was so nice and informative. The grounds were lovely to walk around. We had a wonderful time! Thank you!

Great place to relax

4.2 on June 02, 2014

We were in a cabin and it was very quiet and relaxing. The dining room is willing to honor requests if you don't care for or if you can't eat what they are offering so just ask.

Fabulous Stay at Murphin Ridge Inn

I've shared the link to the Murphin Ridge Inn site with soooo many friends since coming back from our anniversary getaway weekend! I just cannot say enough about our amazing time spent at Murphin Ridge. The cabin was perfect and had everything you would need. The food was OUTSTANDING!! The staff were WONDERFUL, especially Levi, Josh, JC, Jerry, and Paula! We can't wait to go back this year to relax by the fire pit and enjoy Josh's amazing culinary creations.

Company Off-site

5 on May 30, 2014

This was our 7th year going to the Murphin Ridge Inn for our annual company off-site and the 2nd year under the new ownership. It is the perfect place for team-building and camaraderie. The food is a delicious blend of country and gourmet. We are looking forward to going back next year.

Hosts were very accommodating in that they kept the dining room open late to allow us to visit local heritage site.

Bucolic yet refined

4.4 on May 26, 2014

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay from the quiet country setting to the gourmet dinner and outdoor activiites. It was the perfect quick getaway - we'd love to go back and stay a little longer.

Great getaway!

The grounds were so beautiful and the food is maintaining it's excellence. It is obvious the cordial "new " (1 year) owners are taking great care to make this a lovely experience.

Peaceful and delicious!

5 on May 24, 2014

My wife and I have stayed at the Murphin Ridge Inn several times. We've stayed in the cabins and in the guesthouse.Our most recent stay was in Room #5 in the guest house over the week-end of May 15-18, 2014. Jerry and Paula Schutt maintain a first class establishment in every way: setting, service, room and bathroom amenities, and delicious food! I have recommended the Murphin Ridge Inn to friends and family and all have been delighted. I recommend the Inn without reservation.

Awesome place to Go!

5 on May 22, 2014

You never know what to expect when you book somewhere new online. I went in hoping it would be as good as it looked and sounded on the website. Murphin Ridge Inn was much better than I expected in every way. The service is awesome, the location is beautiful, and the cabin wonderful. My wife and I did not want to leave and are already planning our return trip.

A Little Piece of Heaven!!!

5 on May 14, 2014

This is a Little Piece of Heaven!! Everything was just perfect for our 8th wedding anniversary and Mother's Day Weekend!! Food was OUTSTANDING, Thanks, Chef Josh!!! I am looking forward to Chef Josh's Cookbook!!!! Everyone was sweet and very helpful!! Can't wait to return for a stay! Looking forward to my Birthday Dinner here!!!

I would highly recommend Murphin Ridge!

4.6 on May 14, 2014

The staff and the FOOD cannot be beat! The owners and service staff were the friendliest and most caring people! The food was AMAZING! Best food I have ever eaten! We will surely return!

Excellent service, Outstanding cabins

4.8 on May 14, 2014

This is our first time staying here since the new owners took over last year. Service, friendliness, food quality, cleanliness, and quality of cabins is still as good as, if not better than, before. It was our first time staying in the cabins, and will certainly be staying in them again. The guest house can get a little noisy if kids are around, but the cabins are secluded and kid free. Highly recommended and worth the extra money. The restaurant is a bit pricey, but very high quality food. Jerry's ribs on saturday were fantastic. The wait staff is very friendly and helpful, but I think they are a bit overtasked and sometimes it can be a long time between visits to your table. The only other negative is that there is no wifi in the cabins, but not a big deal.

after years of going to differant paces, this is our new favorite forever place!

5 on May 09, 2014

The chef is outstanding....dining attendant was way beyond compare. The cabin is a work of art, and SO comfortable. It was extremely clean and some of the best features is the staffs willingness to accommodate... the jacuzzi tub was a life saver... the food was SO good, I hated to get full!! And, the fact that everything is made from scratch is a real bonus. Chef Josh didn't mind that I stepped into the kitchen a number of times.(I am a chef myself). What a treat....I ask, why did we wait so long to go here!!!

My wife's 50 birthday celebration

5 on May 06, 2014

We visited due to a recommendation from a friend. Wow! We were totally blown away with our cabin. The food was amazing and the staff could not have been more helpful. Highly recommended!!

Great stay

3.8 on May 03, 2014

Cabin was excellent and staff was great. Really enjoyed the stay! Food was a mixed bag: we have fairly simple tastes and like simple food. The chef is excellent, but expect a very refined and higher class of food. It was more than we wanted as a meal...hoping for the familiar instead of the fancy. If you love fine dining though, you'll love this place!

Innkeeper Response
We are very glad to hear that you enjoyed your visit with us. As our Chef makes everything from-scratch each day, we are more than happy to create a personalized menu for you when you visit. Last week, for example - we had a guest that was craving Grilled Cheese and Tomato Soup. (Perfect for a cool, rainy Spring evening if you ask me...) The comfort of our guests is our main priority - especially when it comes to "comfort food!" We hope to see you back on the Ridge again soon! - Levi

- Levi (Assistant Innkeeper)

Can't wait to go back!

5 on May 02, 2014

The atomsphere was great. We went hiking in their woods, had a wonderful dinner, and sat around the bonfire visiting with other guest after dinner. Breakfast was delicious and we ordered box lunches for our trip home. They were delicious also and enough for our lunch and dinner when we got home. Would love to go back in the fall!

Innkeeper Response
Thanks so much for the great review! We are very glad that you enjoyed your time with us on the Ridge. Our Box Lunches can satisfy most appetites, from those taking an invigorating hike up Buzzard's Roost to those taking a relaxing nap in the hammock - and usually with some left over for a snack! Come back and visit us again this Fall!

Getaway Weekend

Loved the grounds, hiking trails, photo opportunities, food, food, food, meeting new people and of course the friendly, helpful staff.

Innkeeper Response
Yay! Glad that you had a good time with us on the Ridge! With the Red Bud trees blooming and our gardens coming back to life, this is a great time for "Photo Ops" at Murphin Ridge Inn! Check out our Facebook Page for some great pics from recent guests! (Peggy, is this you? - Thanks for the great pictures!)

Weekend stay

5 on April 23, 2014

Beautiful room. Great shower. Helpful staff. Wonderful food. Beautiful scenery.

It doesn't get any better than this

5 on April 20, 2014

I have stayed at a lot of B&B's and have never been to one any where near how wonderful Murphin Ridge Inn is. The cabins are fabulous with everything you could possible need and then some. The all-wood interior design is stunning and so comfortable. My favorite part was sitting in the rockers on the porch in the evenings and watching and listening to nature. I fell asleep several times. Also it is not just a B&B. It is fine dining in the evening that is so good, it worth going there for dinner even if you are not staying there. The owners are wonderful people. We sat around the fire pit and talked and laughed for a couple of hours after supper. I can't wait to go again. If you miss this wonderful opportunity, you have no one to blame but yourself. Try it. You will never regret it. Dr. Edward S. Umlauf, D.O.

Excellent get away from it all

I spent two nights with the Murphin Ridge Inn while taking a class. It was a pleasant escape from the hussle and bussle of work. Beautiful scenery, exceptionally clean room, wonderful view, and dining was supurb!

Excellent weekend!

5 on April 16, 2014

My wife and I took a long weekend away. On a recommendation of a close friend we decided to head to Murphin Ridge. The facilities were very nice. The cabin was well thought out with amenities. The staff were excellent. The food, both dinner and breakfast, were top-notch 5 star quality. (Bring your appetite) We had a great time and plan on going back in the early fall.

Great weekend!

5 on April 15, 2014

A great place to stay and relax! We loved the food, service, location, and visiting the Amish locals. we will be Back!

Just what the doctor ordered!!

4.8 on April 14, 2014

Needed a short getaway and found this gem on TripAdvisor. Booked one of the King cabins (highly recommend a cabin for privacy) for a two night stay. Everything was fantastic. Every staff member was friendly, welcoming and attentive. All of our meals were outstanding. We ate dinner in the dining house both evenings and were blown away. We did spend a lot of time hidden away in our cabin just enjoying some peace and quiet (no tv, no internet) and only ventured out briefly for a nice hike and a little shopping. We will go back the first chance we get. For those of you who need TV&internet, there is availability in the guest/dinning houses. Cell service was good everywhere on the property.

Wonderful country getaway!

3.8 on April 09, 2014

Murphin Ridge Inn is a wonderful place to get away for a weekend and enjoy the peace and quiet of the country. Their service and friendliness is spectacular. The food at the Inn is exceptional. It is a mix of comfort food with some unexpected flair added. I enjoyed every meal we had there and had a hard time deciding what to order. We will definitely visit again!

Lovely winter time

4.6 on April 04, 2014

We enjoyed our stay at Murphin Ridge Inn this last weekend. Though it was winter we loved seeing the deer and wild turkey wander across the field as we enjoyed a wonderful breakfast. My husband and I plan to come back sometime in the fall to enjoy the fall foliage and hike on the trails close by. This is an experience that should not be missed.

Great inn

5 on April 03, 2014

Lovely location, friendly staff.

Cabin Stay

4.4 on March 27, 2014

Cabin was very nice and the meals were delicious. We were happy with our stay at Murphin Ridge. It's a great place to get away.

Outstanding spring get-away

5 on March 24, 2014

Just what we needed for a few days of quiet break. Meals were excellent. Lodging was superb. Staff took care of our every need and more.


5 on March 19, 2014

We enjoyed our weekend very much and thank everyone at the Inn for all the hospitality and graciousness. I forgot to mention before I left how much I enjoyed the poached pears Saturday evening!! Thanks for the accommodations on my plant based eating preference - everything was just delicious. It was a great weekend for us and I hope we can make a return visit sometime!

An annual getaway we can't wait to take!

5 on March 10, 2014

My husband and I have been going to Murphin Ridge Inn for several years now and we cannot wait to go back each year. What started as a neat Christmas present and a chance to get away and be husband and wife instead of Mommy and Daddy, became a yearly tradition for us. We look forward to the cuisine, especially the breakfast, the gorgeous views, no matter what season you visit, and, of course, the amazing, and genuine, treatment the owners and staff give you from the moment you walk through the door until the time you check out. It is nice to go to a place where you feel like you are visiting a old friend every time you visit. We HIGHLY recommend Murphin Ridge to anyone looking for a peaceful, beautiful, scrumptious, "like home" place to kick off your shoes and relax. The rooms are wonderful, although you won't want to spend much time in them between the Amish shops near by and beautiful trails to walk. They are nicely decorated, home-like, and comfortable, and the Amish stoves in each one warm you up quick if you are there on a cool/cold day. In a time where rushing around and barely stopping to get to know people seems to be the "norm," it is a welcome and wonderful site to have places like Murphin Ridge there to help you slow down and "take a load off", all while making you feel like part of their family. You can certainly go "off the grid" and forget the outside world for awhile in their beautiful bed and breakfast, and go home ready to tackle all that life throws your way. Thank you so much for many years of helping us "take a load off" and truly be husband and wife in one of the most beautiful Inns we have ever been to. You won't be disappointed, that is certain, when you visit Murphin Ridge!

Time together

4.8 on March 04, 2014

Had an absolutely wonderful 2 night stay in a cabin with my wife. Cabin was beautiful, food was delicious (breakfast and Dinner), staff was great. If you need some time to reflect and reconnect, murhin ridge is the place you've been looking for.

We'll be back!

5 on February 26, 2014

Everything about our stay was absolute perfection!

Five-star stay!

A wonderful experience all the way around-great cabins, great dining, great hosts-a great getaway in a very peaceful, tranquil location-always a perfect experience.

Valentine's Day Stay

4.4 on February 19, 2014

Beautiful area and Inn. The special Valentine's Day menu was very good! Would be an added touch if there were TV's in the room.

Valentines get away

4.4 on February 19, 2014

Very romantic weekend with my girl friend who became my fiancée. We will return when the weather warms. Have several friends that would like to return with us.

Relax, Relax, Relax!!

5 on February 14, 2014

This was one of the most relaxing weekends we have had had in our 34 years of marriage. We did not miss not having a TV and it was a great opportunity to get "unplugged"from our busy real world. This place made this happen!! We stayed in cabin 5 and the roomy space it provided was great. The fireplace, gigantic tub, huge shower and four post bed all added to the romantic feel on our anniversary. The staff was very attentive with a can do attitude that anticipated our every need. They started the weekend as staff and ended the weekend as friends. The two of us talked about the weekend on our way home and the only thing that could have possibly improved the experience was to have some winter activities or gear. Some cross country skis, snow shoes or horse drawn sleigh rides would have been nice but this may be getting a little nit picky. We had a great time and enjoyed the meals, cabin and our new friends!! Dave & Julie

The perfect place to get away from it all yet have the best of everything. The cabins are outstanding. The food is better than the finest restaurants in a large city.

We will be back!

5 on February 05, 2014

We could not have asked for a better getaway! The place is beautifully done, clean, friendly, private and the food and people are the best. The food is excellent and so fresh. And small touches like good shower heads and good mattresses also stand out. We are going to make this a yearly tradition (wish we could do it twice a year).

Everything it's Cracked up to Be!

5 on February 03, 2014

We had an absolutely wonderful stay! The accommodations were top-notch, but comfy and cozy. The people were warm and friendly and the food was excellent! Again, high-quality but good comfort food, too. A romantic place and a wonderful retreat from the craziness of four kids and the city! Thank you!

Great cabins, great food and great trip

4.6 on January 31, 2014

My wife and I visited Murphin Ridge for her Birthday weekend and stayed 2 nights in one of the cabins. Our cabin was beautiful and very clean. The fresh fallen snow made the property georgous. Every meal we had was fantastic! The staff was very friendly and provided excellent customer service. We would definitely visit again.

We spent our anniversary weekend at Murphin Ridge Inn and could not have been more impressed. We loved our quiet cabin and the food exceeded our expectations. What a great relaxing weekend. We will be back.

What a great place to get away and forget all your problems.

5 on January 02, 2014

For the two of us, it was a great weekend of great food, excellent service, nice hiking and just a relaxing time to do a crossword puzzle and forget about everything else happening in our busy lives. We have been here many times and it only gets better and better.

Loved our stay at Murphin Ridge!

5 on January 01, 2014

Service was friendly and prompt, food was amazing, and the entire stay was relaxing and perfect. Would definitely go again and recommend to friends.

Perfect holiday escape

4.6 on December 29, 2013

My husband and I were sad that we couldn't be with family and take another big trip to a warm island for Christmas - work commitments kept us home in Cincinnati - but we did do a brilliant thing and booked ourselves at the Murphin Ridge Inn for Christmas Eve. The perfect, quick getaway - a close-enough drive and yet an entire world away, tucked into the countryside of Adams County. Christmas Eve found us reading in rocking chairs beside the fire in our room and watching the sun set across the field and distant hills. We then enjoyed a spectacular Christmas dinner, followed by a cozy huddle by the outdoor fire pit. Christmas breakfast was another incredible meal. We loved the old brick building that houses the restaurant and cannot rave enough about the exceptional service. The staff at the Inn made the stay pure pleasure, especially Levi. The Murphin Ridge Inn was a perfect cure for an otherwise lonely holiday.

Murphin Ridge: Outstanding all round

5 on December 23, 2013

highly recommend. owners are warm, welcoming and atentive.

Late Fall Stay

3.4 on December 08, 2013

Hiking and places of interest are great. Suggest more vegetarian items on the dinner menu. The service was superb. Will return during wildflower season.

Innkeeper Response
Thank you for your remarks! Our Chef will gladly create requested vegetarian options (or any other desired dishes). Just let us know when reserving and we will pass the word.

I love the place the crew is fantastic. My only sugestion is the signing to arrive and park at night. Need to improve.

Innkeeper Response
Thank You for your stay.....our staff is top notch and we are striving to keep the service level up...please call us at 877-687-7446 to elaborate on the sign in issue we are wondering what we would need to do to improve...Thanks again

Extremely Quiet Property

3.8 on December 05, 2013

Dinner was fantastic. I would drive the 1 1/2 hours to eat there again. Didn't care for breakfast. Too sweet. That was a disappointment since it is a B & B. We stayed in the least expensive room, $140, and although it was extremely clean it just wasn't anything special. We liked the fire pit. We liked the quiet. We just don't think it's worth the price so we would not stay there again. We have stayed in at least 20 different B & B's over the years, maybe more. This one just isn't memorable. Sorry. The hosts were lovely and the staff, as well.

Innkeeper Response
We are pleased that you liked your dinner and our service but we are sorry that you would not come again.....our breakfasts are alternating every day is sweet the next is savory...we are careful that no breakfast is the same regardless the length of your stay....please give me a call at 877-687-7446 to discuss suggestions and I really want you to elaborate on your concerns with your stay....Thanks, Jerry

Fabulous B&B

4.8 on November 24, 2013

Great place to go if you want to do nothing but relax and enjoy nature. Trails to walk on and fire pit to relax by. Great service, people so friendly and helpful and the food is out of this world!!!! Took dessert back to our cabin and was shocked and surprised to see our waitress wrapped our dessert up on real plates and gave us a tray to carry it back on and we had real forks and napkins. Nice touch. No TV in cabin and you can reconnect with your spouse and the fireplace added just the right touch. . Great get away. Will be back.

Innkeeper Response
Thank you so much for the great review.....we are striving to please our guests and it is nice that you noticed the small touches that we use to make you feel at home.

My wife and I retreated here for the weekend from Chicago. We booked a cabin, which was amazing and spacious, and enjoyed good food and good times all weekend long. Murphin is a favorite of ours, and it lives up to its reputation as one of the best B&Bs in the US.

Innkeeper Response
Thanks for the nice review.....we are happy to be here for you....we will strive to serve our guests and make their stay a wonderful experience. Thanks again.

Murphin Ridge is in a beautiful setting, Peaceful, Clean and Relaxing, just what we needed after a busy week. THe Inn Keepers are very Friendly and the food and service were very good. Loved the smoked sausage Saturday morning and the Ribs. Oh, and can't forget the bon Fire at night, beautiful, warm and inviting. I hope to return again soon.

Innkeeper Response
Thank You! We hope to see you soon!

4.2 on November 06, 2013

New owners doing a great job. Loved the campfire. Nice gathering room for our group to hang out. Beautiful private setting with trails to hike. Lovely separate historic building for dining. Saturday morning breakfast was excellent. For dinner we chose the ribs that the owner devoutly smoked for the entire day - never had anything close to it's taste - absolutely fantastic! Others in our group mentioned dinners were pricey. The bed was a bit stiff.

Great weekend retreat

5 on October 30, 2013

A wonderful family run inn. Beautiful setting. Great food served in an 1820 farm house. I'll go back.

Loved the Murphin Ridge Inn!!!

5 on October 30, 2013

We thoroughly enjoyed our visit to the Murphin Ridge Inn! The cabin was perfect, tucked away in the woods. We hiked the trails, ate delicious food that was some of the best I've ever had! The fire pit was a nice touch. It was great to be out in nature, away from tv and cell phones!

will return

4.8 on October 29, 2013

will return

Outstanding But Pricey

4.6 on October 26, 2013

Everything was first class; comfortable, beautiful, clean, wonderful grounds with hiking trails. On the other hand, it cost over $500 for two nights in the wonderful cabin and one dinner. On the other, other hand, I can see that is not exorbitant considering the cost to maintain, amortize and staff a really first class inn.

Beautiful Get-away

4.6 on October 25, 2013

A harvest moonrise, miles of autumn trails, Amish country, fabulous breakfast, beautiful sylvan cabins, bonfire surrounded by adirondack chairs... we love Murphin Ridge.

Fantastic getaway

Peaceful, friendly, and warm on a chilly Fall getaway. Murphin Ridge is ideal!

Diane's Review

4.6 on October 23, 2013

I very much enjoyed my stay at the Inn. The food was absolutely delicious. My cousin unexpectedly had to work late and the staff happily made sure she was able to eat from their menu upon her arrival. The fires in the pit were just delightful and relaxing. I can't say enough about my stay. The only downside was we didn't have enough time off work to stay longer.


4.8 on October 22, 2013

We stayed in the Celebration cabin. The service was fantastic. The food was fabulous. Had a great time. There is no TV in this cabin and that facilitated more talking about hopes and dreams.

Thoroughly enjoyed the time spent at the cabin at Murphin Ridge Inn. Loved the evening fire, hiking the trails on the grounds, sitting on the porch swing and especially the wonderful food served at the restaurant. Kudos to the chef(s). Everything was delicious! The inn keepers are extremely nice and although I had no special needs, I'm sure they would do their best to accomodate if I did. Certainly plan to return and would recommend to others as a great place to get away.

Very nice Inn to stay at. The Inn was relaxing and comfortable. The Inn Keepers are very kind and welcoming. We plan to go back again since it is such a short trip from our home.

Excellent Getaway

4.8 on October 08, 2013

We celebrated our 25th anniversary recently at the Murphin Inn and had a wonderful time! What a perfect escape from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. The owners are great people and the food was excellent! Nice firepit to enjoy as we watched the moon come up, and the Saturday morning rain was great to watch from our front porch in the woods. I highly recommend Murphin if you are looking to get away and forget the world for a while.

Wonderful weekend

4.8 on October 07, 2013

This was our first visit to Murphin Ridge Inn. Everything was incredible. The cabin was beautiful . The food is the best! The owners, servers, house keepers were all friendly and very helpful. We can't wait to go back.

58th Anniversary visit

3.6 on September 28, 2013

We enjoyed our one night stay at Murphin Ridge. Cabin was very nice, but the mattress needs to be flipped or replaced. We spent the night trying not to end up in the ditch in the middle!! The new owners are trying hard, but they have big shoes to fill. They will do well.

Honeymoon Heaven

4.6 on September 27, 2013

Most wonderful time ever. We loved the cabin in the woods, with the fire place, hot tub, and the lovely room for relaxing and sleeping. We loved setting on the porch, out in the field, and by the campfire. The dinning was excellent. All of the meals tasted so delicious. Will definitely go back.

Fantastic Stay

We just completed our first visit to the Inn and could not have been more pleased. Everything from the facility, the staff, the owners and the dining experience not only exceeded our expectations, but blew them away! It truely is the place to go to reconnect with that special person, and "detox" from a fast paced, hectic schedule. Murphin Ridge Inn has my highest endorsement.

Peaceful Retreat

Everything about Murphin Ridge Inn exceeded our expectations, from the friendly owners and staff to the wonderful food. I will come back, and stay longer.

Excellence continues

A serene setting, good food, lovely rooms and gracious hosts make Murphin Ridge Inn an ideal get-away spot.

Murphin Ridge Inn- Second Time Visitors

4.6 on September 19, 2013

This was our second visit to Murphin Ridge. We are already anxious to return as it has become our favorite vacation get away. We highly recommend this to anyone who wants to escape. An amazing group of people complete the staff and the surrounding country side is to die for.

A Peaceful Retreat

4.8 on September 17, 2013

Turning 40 wasn't so bad... in Amish County, OH. This was our first trip to Murphin Ridge Inn and it was even better than I had imagined! We experienced a peaceful setting with charming cabins, lovely trails, delicious food and a friendly staff. Seeing the Perseids light up the sky on our last night there was a bonus. A truly unforgettable weekend!!!

A great get-away

4.4 on September 16, 2013

Our stay at Murphin Ridge was a wonderful get-away. The cabin was lovely. The staff was very helpful. The meals were very good but since we were there for a holiday "cook-out" we didn't get to fully explore the normal menu.

It's all great.

5 on September 15, 2013

Our goal of total relaxation, great food, meeting new people,enjoying wonderful food in a terrific room was all achieved. Our hosts are very special. Bob and Dorothy L.

Happy anniversary

3.6 on September 10, 2013

We especially enjoyed the seclusion. Food was superb except for the ribeye steak -- I got the impression that the tour group that was there was a little more than the staff could handle. Met nice people, enjoyed walking around the grounds very much. Only real complaint was that the mattress was a little hard but that's sort of subjective. We will go back and we will recommend to others. It was our 44th wedding anniversary and we've spent time in expensive downtown hotels that was less comfortable. By the way, go there to do nothing. If you're looking to be entertained, this is not the place.

Best B&B Experience Ever!

5 on September 09, 2013

I don't know what my favorite part of the stay was as there was farm to table dining, an Amish country locale and we watched the sunrise over the Appalachian foothills from our bed. Innkeepers Paula and Jerry were welcoming and the entire staff was eager to please.

First visit w new owners

4.4 on September 09, 2013

The new family taking on the task of the Murphin Ridge Inn legacy have risen the the challenge with admirable success. Our two night visit was terrific. The food continues to be top notch with the addition of the saturday night barbecue. Looking forward to the new outside fire brick oven creations. We will be back.

The vacation we were longing for!

5 on September 09, 2013

The spacious cabin designed with comfort in mind, the peaceful setting, gourmet meals and gracious staff made it a restful retreat for weary souls.

quiet retreat

4.0 on September 05, 2013

peaceful and charming place for a retreat. lovely trails for some exercise. delicious food!

What a find!

4.6 on September 05, 2013

You can get just the right amount of solitude and good company and you get to choose. The cabins are beautiful. The food is very good although you may want to hide your scale when you get back home. No television in the cabins - this is a better idea than you might think. We have been there twice and it has renewed us.

Repeat Customers for the Future

5 on September 05, 2013

This was our 4th stay at Murphin Ridge Inn and we really enjoyed our stay. The hospitality of the staff & owners is second to none and the property & its amenities is very well maintained. The food is outstanding and served with great care. You can count on us going back again and again in the future.

Great Destination B&B

4.8 on September 04, 2013

Loved everything about this place. Quiet, pastoral setting. Comfortable rooms, well maintained. Attention to detail. Fabulous food. Outstanding.

At Murphin Ridge Inn we are always certain of an outstanding experience

5 on August 30, 2013

When we need to escape the pressures of daily life Murphin Ridge Inn is where we go. As usual the food was outstanding, the staff were friendly, and we gained much needed relaxation.

Great getaway, instant peace!

5 on August 28, 2013

As soon as we arrived we were able to unwind, relax, and feel the peace. Even grabbed naps in plenty of time to make our 7pm dinner reservation!

Best Time--Recommending to everyone we know

5 on August 28, 2013

Food, friendliness, and relaxation the three things I remember most about my stay. And that I wish it could have lasted longer! Thanks Murphin Ridge for a memorable time.

Great food...amazing atmosphere

4.4 on August 28, 2013

It was very relaxing and the food was beyond anything I could've expected.

I give it a 10

We stayed here in August and were pleasantly surprised how nice it was.

Wedding at Murphin Ridge

5 on August 25, 2013

This was our secon stay at Murphins Ridge and I am sure we will be back every year. We love staying in the cabins, eating the amazing food and relaxing by the pool. The staff is AWESOME, always friendly and doing everything needed to make your stay perfect. Only negative is that we had to leave!

Wonderful Get-a-way!

4.8 on August 23, 2013

We thoroughly enjoyed our two-night stay at Murfin Ridge Inn. The cabins are perfect and the food is outstanding. We shall return!

Murphin Ridge Inn

5 on August 21, 2013

Very brief stay at this charming Bed & Breakfast in Ohio. Friendly and accommodating staff. Unfortunately, our schedule while we were there meant we were only at the Inn to sleep a couple of nights and breakfast one morning. Would like to return some day and stay longer. It was a lovely, secluded, quiet place. The only other request we could have made would be 24-hour availability of cold drinks (tea, sodas, etc.) in the lodge. They supplied a Keurig for hot coffee, etc., and ice, which was ok, but would have been nice to be able to get a cold cola.

Beautiful, Hospitable and All-Around Awesome

5 on August 20, 2013

This is an exceptional and beautiful place to dine and stay. The cabins are luxurious and the food is wonderful. No small details were missed.

Fabulous Getaway

4.8 on August 20, 2013

We stayed in the Celebration Cottage/Cabin - we couldn't have had a more relaxing experience. We took advantage of the couples massages that are offered as well as dinner in the restaurant. Strolling the grounds, chatting by the pool after a delicious breakfast...We highly recommend Murphin Ridge Inn! We have been talking about it with our friends and family since!

Country quiet

4.4 on August 19, 2013

A wonderful getaway for us. I'd recommend this property to anyone.

Great time at Murphin Ridge

5 on August 18, 2013

We only stayed one night, but it was definitely worth it! The room was neatly decorated and we really liked the covered porch and rocking chairs. We took advantage of the pool and trails and enjoyed the peace and quiet and country scenery. The dinner and breakfast were delicious and we especially enjoyed eating outside on the lovely patio. The service was excellent.

Outstanding..... In the process or scheduling another visit!

5 on August 16, 2013

We unfortunately arrived late and did not get to enjoy all the amenities offered here since we also had to be on the road early. We had to tear ourselves away putting us behind for our next destination. Beautiful area, very relaxing, awesome service. Outstanding breakfast on the beautiful patio on that rural farm setting was so perfect. The Amish farms in the area appeared untouched by modern society and just what we expected to see. All I can say is arrive early, (construction on some of the small bridges made it a little hard to find detouring after dark), plan on staying late. Give yourselves plenty of time. We definitely will the next time. Mark and Melanie Pulos Texas

Had a wonderful time.

4.2 on August 15, 2013

Especially enjoyed campfire and wait-staff.

Great place to stay!!

5 on August 15, 2013

Murphin Ridge Inn is the perfect place to stay for a relaxing getaway! The cabins are so clean and the food in the restaurant is amazing!! We have stayed twice now and plan to come back soon!!

Getting Away

4.4 on August 14, 2013

This property is truly in the middle of nowhere- which is what my wife and I wanted. The property was very clean and the dining experience exceeded my expectations! I would consider a return trip to Murphin Ridge.

Joes' Place Review

5 on August 13, 2013

Everything was perfect except there was no hot water for the Jacuzzi! We had hiked the Buzzardroost Rock that day and really needed a HOT muscle treatment!

Murphin Ridge Rocks!

4.8 on August 11, 2013

we totally enjoyed our latest stay at Murphin Ridge in one of their cabins. We try to visit a couple of times a year and have done so for the past 5 years. Paula & Jerry, the new inn keepers, are great and seem be keeping the high standard set by Darryl & his wife. We stayed 2 nights, every thing was well kept, clean and service was fantastic. We enjoyed sunning by the pool and the fire pit in the evenings. The additional of a smoker with Jerry cooking up chops and ribs is an excellent addition.

The perfect summer night with mom

5 on August 09, 2013

I wanted to take my mom to a place of quietude and beauty, where I knew the surroundings to be safe and maneuverable . Murphin Ridge came to mind! We'd had a long run of great, no humidity weather, and the perfect day and night presented itself in late July. We spent time reading and swimming at the pool , enjoying a small glass of wine and a delectable cheese basket purchased by the inn, and listened to the birds.....and was treated ro a signting of a summer tanager in it's red glory ! We dressed for dinner , and at 93 1/2, mom enjoys dressing nicely. The weather was so nice that all the guests enjoyed eating on the bugs, a soft breeze filled with freshness. The wait staff were so kind, patient, and suggesting alternatives if appropriate to customize mom's meal. The presentation and taste of our trout dinners was remarkable, as were the salads, breads, and soup. Servings were very ample, sadly leaving no room for dessert ! Afterwards we joined other couples around the fire pit, watching the full, orange mom ascend over the corn fields. At 10:30 p.m., mom turned to me and said, " I think I like this better than Florida," as in the past many, many years she has vacationed with us there, but due to the heat and travel, she didn't want to try it this year. Our room in the guest house was spacious and perfect for us, with two comfortable beds , room to move around, and a Kureig coffee maker in the main hallway to access before breakfast. The staff at Murphin Ridge is very welcoming, hospitable , and was amazed that mom was 93. The new owners are equally very kind and courteous. Murphin Ridge provides excellent quality in all they do, and we will be back soon! Being 75 minutes from Cincinnati makes it a very affordable night away. I've visited with my spouse as well, and enjoyed the down time to reconnect in the beauty of the inn and fields.

Great romantic get away for two.

4.6 on August 04, 2013

Have been to Murphin Ridge with our children many times. First time there as a couple. The cabin was comfortable and spacious. The service and food were outstanding.

Perfect, relaxing weekend

4.4 on July 31, 2013

Beautiful surroundings, clean rooms, amazing service... we loved it. We enjoyed sitting around the fire in the evenings, star gazing and meeting the other guests. The food was superb - we love, love, loved the food! The Murphin Ridge Inn is not your least expensive option, but it is a lovely one. Thank you for the perfect, relaxing weekend.

Beautiful Weekend Away

4.4 on July 31, 2013

We loved being able to feel so far removed from the routine of regular life within such a short distance from home. The food was seriously outstanding. The rooms were exceptionally clean and comfortable. The grounds are beautiful and hike worthy with multiple trails to access. We had only three criticisms to an otherwise perfect weekend away. The first was that we would have liked room darkening drapes. Our second floor room faced the rising sun and it cam barreling through at 6:00 am when we wanted to sleep in. The second observation we had was that while the beds were comfortably firm, they would have benefitted from a topper of some kind to add a little extra cushion. Finally, the parking lot is pea gravel which makes it difficult to trolley luggage up to the paved walkways. This was an extra problem for our group because we were on motorcycles. Motorcycles and gravel don't play well together. All that said, we would not hesitate to stay here again.

27th Anniversary Stay

4.4 on July 30, 2013

Excellent accommodations! The food and staff were all exceptional! Only drawback is after staying in the cabin, my wife wants one built on our property!

Could not ask for more!

5 on July 28, 2013

Myself, my Daughter, and my Grandson could not have asked for anything more. Excellent service, relaxing atmosphere, and the Owners' were more than pleasant! Accommodating, Friendly, with a peaceful clean atmosphere all around. Thank you for the excellence!

Murphin Ridge Rocks

5 on July 26, 2013

Best place within and hour and a half of NKY and Cincinnati. And if you don't stay for dinner you missed it!!

Murphin Ridge Inn never disappoints!

5 on July 26, 2013

My husband and I have been going to MRI at least once a year for the past seven years. It never disappoints! Our kids were so upset that they didn't get to get with us this time that we booked another trip with them in September. Can't wait to go back!

Peaceful paradise

5 on July 25, 2013

My wife and I love the cabins at Murphin Ridge Inn. We had a romantic evening with the rain hitting the metal roof of our cabin as our background music. The food is always great. We can't recommend it enough.

This was our first visit, and it was everything and more than I had hoped from the website! We will be back for sure.

Nice and quiet

4.4 on July 17, 2013

The staff was wonderful. The food was great also. It is a nice quiet place.

Nice getaway

4.0 on July 14, 2013

Hiking paths at Murphin Ridge made this a memorable trip. We explored before breakfast when it was peaceful and wet. The room was comfortable. TV would have been nice because there is not much to do after dinner. The dining in the old historic house was good and we enjoyed the barbecue special at dinner. We had never visited Adams County and were surprised to find Amish culture in addition to the hills and the river. We would recommend Murphin Ridge to friends. If you go, don't trust GPS. It will take you on a terrible dirt road. Follow directions on the website instead.

Relaxing experience.

5 on July 13, 2013

We had a wonderful time at Murphin Ridge Inn. Stayed in Guest House. Room basic but very nice and clean. Nightly fire pit and afternoon cookies are nice touch. Not much to do in area but it doesn't matter because we were there for relaxation. The grounds are beautiful with flowers and surrounding corn fields. The owners and all of the staff were extremely welcoming and nice.

A good place to unwind.

4.0 on July 12, 2013

The service is very friendly and helpful. The staff makes you feel like you are visiting with old friends.

a lovely stay in a lovely place

4.6 on July 11, 2013

This is a very nice place.

Great getaway

4.8 on July 08, 2013

It was all so fantastic -- the food was so good, and the accommodations so comfortable, that we cancelled our plans to explore the area more in favor of a relaxed weekend vacation. It's the perfect place to just read/write/draw/think/sleep/etc. while having all your gastronomic needs met in a most excellent way. We will certainly be coming here again!

Relaxing Cottage get away

4.2 on July 08, 2013

Went away for the fourth of July and it rained and rained so we had to to stay in the cottage. Lovely cottage with jacuzzi and fireplace and a private porch that keeps one dry! The Inn did not have their regular menu that evening so we ate elsewhere. Breakfast was good but the bacon could have been crisper. Overall we would definitely go back-- a restorative getaway from the city.

Relaxing . . . and the food is unbelievable!

5 on July 08, 2013

My wife and I enjoyed a remarkably laid-back weekend in one of the cabins. Both Friday and Saturday night dinners were outstanding, and the breakfasts were so good we ate much more than we should have. Walking all of the trails on Saturday morning (including the trail to the Amish bakery) helped us avoid gaining five pounds in one weekend.

A week of relaxation built into two days

4.8 on July 07, 2013

This was a last minute visit and we had to switch accommodations from a room to a cabin due to availability. It gave us a chance to appreciate all the Inn had to offer. The cabins will definately be our choice next time. The Inn was scrupulously clean and the service outstanding. We were lucky enough to be there for a night Jerry cooked ribs. The best ribs I have EVER tasted. What a great place to disconnect from the world and relax.

First time, no regrets

4.4 on July 05, 2013

This was the first time my wife and I did a Bed and Breakfast, and we loved the experience. Gerald and Paula thought of every little detail. The guest house was clean, modern, and comfortable. Breakfast and Dinner were both delicious, and the staff, especially Levi, have made us consider another trip next year.

fantastic stay at Murphin Ridge Inn

5 on July 03, 2013

Everyone on staff was kind and helpful. My sister and I found our get-away relaxing. We used the pool (very clean) and tennis court (good condition). Our dinner and breakfast were delicious.

Excellence Continues

4.6 on July 02, 2013

Our recent return was the first under the new owners. I am pleased to share wit everyone that accommodations and dining were excellent, staff service was very attentative and the owners are warming up to the task of running a beautiful retreat in Adams County. We will be back!! Tom B

Time well spent

4.8 on July 02, 2013

Quiet ... breezy winds in the trees ... good food ... restful cabins ..

Escape the World

4.6 on July 02, 2013

Beautiful surroundings, no television, spotty cell service, limited internet, a great place to unplug and unwind. Food is excellent. We've never had a bad meal. We always leave refreshed and relaxed.

Outstanding attention to quality

5 on June 29, 2013

Absolutely a wonderful two day retreat, to relax. Our room was large and roomy, the surroundings are just beautiful and peaceful. We really appreciated the cleanliness and attention to detail. The food was wonderful. Will go back for sure!

made for anniversaries!

5 on June 27, 2013

my husband and i went to murphin ridge 7 years ago on our honeymoon, and again this past weekend to celebrate 7 years of marriage. We stayed in a cabin each time, and the peace and solitude that this inn offers is just perfect. The food is simply spectacular, and lingering with that extra glass of wine by the community fire pit while we laughed with other couples that we met at the inn was just what the doctor ordered. i would highly recommend!

Outstanding Experience

5 on June 26, 2013

This was my first visit to Murphin Ridge Inn but will not be the last. I visited with a couple of girl friends and the weekend was one we will never forget. The calm that came over us as we entered the grounds was almost magical. The grounds, the food, the rooms, and the staff were all outstanding. There are no suggestions for how the weekend could have improved. We even enjoyed the hiking trails. Definitely a MUST do again!

Everyone should stay here once in their lifetime

5 on June 25, 2013

The attention to detail is superb. The cottages are the place to be to just relax and get away for a day or two. And the food was excellent. The community bonfire at night provides one the opportunity to get to know the owners and other guests. We compared notes, found out what others were doing and planned our next day. The staff went out of the way to insure that our stay was enjoyable. We will be back! Tom & Eileen

Great night

4.4 on June 24, 2013

Enjoyed a nice evening away from TV and Internet. Breakfast was great!


5 on June 17, 2013

Spending one night in one of the cabins is the perfect retreat. We loved hiking the trails prior to dinner. Dinner in itself was an event. The food is fabulous and in such a relaxed environment. Levi is the best host ever. I highly recommend lying in the hammock after dinner. Sitting in the rocking chairs drinking coffee in the morning with the birds was so peaceful and a great way to start the day. We've decided to make Murphin an annual event.

A great place to relax, unwind and enjoy nature.

5 on June 17, 2013

Great service, very clean and comfortable room, and wonderful menu options.

We felt like royaly

5 on June 14, 2013

The new owners Jerry and Paula are absolutely wonderful people. We were made to feel like we were the only ones staying there. We had plans during the day that ran late and they offered to either change our dining reservation to a later time or they could bring our dinner to our cabin. And we met some fantastic people sitting out at the camp fire. We certainly want to return again!

Weekend away- great food, great accomodations, beatiful scenery

5 on June 13, 2013

We wanted to go someplace not too far from home, but still get away. Murphin Ridge was just the right place. We stayed at one of the cabins, which was peaceful and had all the amenities to make it enjoyable. The food served at breakfast and dinner was delicious with dishes that were very creative and ingredients that were fresh from the local gardens. The hiking that was close by ( Shawnee State Park and the Edge of Appalachia Preserve) provided wonderful outdoor activities to complete our weekend. We will definitely come back.

Fun Get Away!

5 on June 12, 2013

Beautiful surroundings, friendly hosts and delicious food!

Murphin Ridge Inn - A Great Getaway in Amish Country

5 on June 12, 2013

My wife and I recently stayed at the Murphin Ridge Inn In West Union , Ohio. It was an unforgettable experience. The new owners Jerry and Paula Schutt went out of their way to make sure that we were served meals to accommodate our schedule and that my wife could get a late checkout while I attended a class at the Tactical Defense Institute. Everyone on staff was most pleasant. The property is well maintained and very scenic with many deer visible in the distance. We stayed in a king cabin that featured a king size bed, two-sided fireplace, large whirlpool tub and six showerhead shower. Very romantic and very relaxing. Would highly recommend the Murphin Ridge Inn.

A wonderful, restful get-a-way.

4.4 on June 12, 2013

This is a great place. The cabin was clean and bright. The food was delicious. Loved the breakfast! We also had a fun hike right there on the property.

Can't Say Enough!

5 on June 04, 2013

There aren't enough words to describe our stay at Murphin Ridge Inn! The service was exceptional, food delicious, room clean and cozy, and the whole atmosphere was friendly and heart-warming. We were so rested and at peace while there. Such a great getaway and we will surely be back!

Relaxing weekend

3.6 on May 31, 2013

We enjoyed the setting, hiking in the area, delicious meal, campfires, and friendly hosts.

Fantastic relaxing getaway

4.6 on May 30, 2013

Murphin Ridge Inn is fantastic! We loved the relaxing atmosphere! The cabins are beautiful, clean, romantic, comfortable, and well kept. I didn't give it 5 stars because the only draw-back in our book is that the "toilet room" could use a little more privacy. It has a door but only with slats. We stayed here for our 10 year anniversary and could have still used a little more privacy. The dining is the best part. Every bite of food we had was delicious and well worth the price!

Secluded and Relaxing B&B

4.4 on May 29, 2013

Scenic views, amazing dining and relaxed atmosphere.

MRI is our favorite place

5 on May 27, 2013

We love it here and go as often as possible. It's the perfect peaceful retreat. Once I get there I can no longer hear the noise in my head from my hectic life. We've stayed in the cabins and the guest house; the cabins are much more private and secluded so we prefer to stay there when possible. The food is out of this world.and dinner is very reasonably priced, which is a good thing because there is nowhere else to eat nearby. The free breakfast is amazing and fills you up until dinner. I can't say enough good about MRI.

Murphin Ridge Inn

5 on May 16, 2013

Great Food! Great Hosts! Loved the cats and birds!

16 years of visiting and still the best

5 on May 14, 2013

We've been staying for around 16 years, mostly in cabins, but if we visit twice a year, sometimes in a room. Just the best, most relaxing and friendly get-away around and for us living in Cincinnati, just about 75-minute drive. Up until this last visit, we got to know Darryl and Sherry very well, and now Jerry and Paula welcomed us and made our stay great. They made an extra effort to get to know us; we sat around the outdoor fire pit and chatted for quite awhile, as well as in the dining room. This place will remain a top-rated inn in the country and plan to return in October when the trees are ablaze with fall colors. Great rooms/cabins/grounds/gourmet dining in casual setting/owners and staff. Check it out.

Beyond anything I expected!!

5 on May 12, 2013

We will be returning as much as possible.. it was beautiful! The hospitality was outstanding, accommodation were fantastic, the food was out of this world!! Everything was fantastic! The massages iced the cake... the area was so nice and peaceful and cute. I loved it... it was the break we needed :] Our honeymoon is coming up and now we know exactly where we wanna go!!


5 on May 11, 2013

Couldn't believe all the great reviews now I know it's all true had a great weekend and would certainly go back

Sunday night stay

4.2 on May 09, 2013

We had a great time. The place and people were wonderful. Our only disappointment was there was no wine allowed to be served at dinner on Sunday. A liquor control issue I'm sure, but something they'll want to work out. It was the only night we had to celebrate our anniversary and would have loved to toast with a glass of wine!

A very relaxing place.

4.6 on May 08, 2013

New owners took over three days before I arrived. Good people sincerely trying to provide for the guests. A little clunky as they were learning their ways. Great fire pit and plenty of rocking chairs everywhere. My room was nice for just me, but the cabins really looked the place to stay for the ultimate stay.

Simply Amazing

5 on May 06, 2013

Speechless! Honestly. Exceeded our expectations. We all have busy schedules, life happens, but everyone really should take some time and enjoy this wonderful place. Thank you Murphin Ridge for paying it changed our lives.

Been staying here for 20 years and still love it!

5 on May 02, 2013

My wife and I have seen the Inn through different owners over the years (Bob and Mary, Darryl and Sherry). They have made Murphin Ridge such a great place. It truly is what the website describes (i.e., relaxing, romantic getaway). The rooms, cabins, food, and service are all outstanding. On our recent visit, we met the new owners Jerry and Paula. They are very nice people, and we look forward to seeing them on our future stays.

Murphin Ridge Inn

5 on April 24, 2013

We came for our first anniversary and we loved eveything about the place. It was our first time staying at the inn. The people and the food are the best. Thank you to the owners and staff. We will be back soon.

Innkeeper Response
Thank you! We look forward to seeing you on the Ridge again.

- Paula (innkeeper)

Great Escape

5 on April 22, 2013

Our recent visit was wonderful. The hiking trails are lovely, as are the woodland views from the front and back porches. The lack of television encourages conversation and "bonding" such that one comes away with renewed relationships and a relaxed point of view.

Innkeeper Response
You experienced all that is Murphin. We are glad that you recieved relaxation and feel renewed. Hope to see you on the Ridge again.

- Paula (innkeeper)

Can't wait to go back

5 on April 17, 2013

Out in the middle on nowhere Ohio a pleasant retreat, worth the drive.Great food.

Wonderful Anniversary celebration location

4.8 on April 17, 2013

We spent two nights at Murphin Ridge. Being there during the week, to celebrate our 25th anniversary, it was very quiet - perfect for us. We found the cabin to be just right. We loved the whirlpool bath after a grueling hike through the Edge of Appalachia preserve. The bed was huge and very comfortable. We loved how private it felt. Even if the other cabins had been filled, I think they're situated well enough that they feel very private. The dinners were excellent. Being a small place, the menu is not extensive, but everything is well-planned to consider the fact that guests will be eating there for several days. The soup and salad courses are varied each day, as are the country breakfast offerings. The surrounding area doesn't offer enough interest for us to want to spend more than a couple days at a time. Mostly, it's perfect for a complete wind-down. We splurged on massages in the cabin. How wonderful to have them come to us! The service was excellent, very friendly and knowledgeable, there when we needed them, but not intrusive. Our first night, as we got ready for bed, we noticed that there was a fire lit in the communal firepit. But we were already on our way to bed. So the next night, we asked if they were going to have a fire that night, and Levi, our wonderful server said if we wanted a fire, he'd light one for us. The staff go to great lengths to make guests feel at home. We look forward to a return visit.

Innkeeper Response
We are so happy you enjoyed your time on the Ridge. We have the greatest staff. Thank you for taking the time to mention this to us. Please do come back to the Ridge to celebrate! Thanks again.

6 Year Anniversary Trip

4.6 on April 17, 2013

It was the first time my husband and I had been to the Inn. If it weren't for the hilly, curvy drive, which makes me car sick, we'd come back frequently.

What a romantic, wonderful and relaxing stay.

5 on April 13, 2013

We stayed in one of the Queen cabins and well can't say enough how wonderful our stay was. The Cabin was clean, warm, and very relaxing. The staff was amazing and welcoming (thank you Levi). The food was excellent in both taste and presentation. The grounds were well kept, quite, and we loved watching the birds out the large windows in the breakfast area.

Innkeeper Response
Thank you for such kind words. We will be sure to let Levi know. We hope to see you on the Ridge again soon!

Weekend getaway

5 on April 10, 2013

My wife and I just stayed at Murphin Ridge as a weekend getaway from our kids. It was recommended to us by some friends. If you are looking for a quiet weekend to reconnect with your spouse this is a fantastic option. We stayed in one of the cabins and I highly recommend those. The staff and innkeepers were very helpful, very friendly and made you feel like you were old friends. The food was fantastic.

Innkeeper Response
Wow! Thanks for the great feedback. Our staff really works at making your stay a great one. We appreciate you noticing and letting us know. See you on the Ridge. Keep the good feelings till the next time.

- Sherry (innkeeper)

Perfect getaway

5 on April 09, 2013

We stayed two nights. The craft beers and wine list were a perfect complement to the wonderful food. Service was a nice combination of laid-back and attentive. The setting is gorgeous. Cabin, walking trails, things to do, layout, and ambiance were quite adaptable to a couple of which one-half is quite active and the other half not so active. We'll be back.

Innkeeper Response
You described your stay exactly as we hoped it would be. Thanks. Your return is the perfect compliment!

- Sherry (innkeeper)

This Bed and Breakfast equals a very Relaxing and Restful stay!

4.6 on April 08, 2013

We thoroughly enjoyed the time spent at the Murphin Ridge Inn. The food and service was superb. We felt very welcomed. Sherry and Darryl made our stay a very memorable experience.

Innkeeper Response
You know what a girl (and guy) need! Thanks for letting us know. Come back to the Ridge soon.

- Sherry (innkeeper)

Easter night stay

5 on April 05, 2013

My mother and I spent Easter night just for a girl's night away. We were greeted warmly when getting our room key and told to come to late buffet dinner earlier than our scheduled time, if we would like. We had cookies and a coffee machine at our use to make us feel at home.The room was warm and inviting, with comfy beds and chairs. The breakfast the next morning was wonderful with even gluten free bread (my diet) offered. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and I do plan to return again.

Innkeeper Response
So glad your stay was a great one. Bring Mom back! We love that you will be back.

- Sherry (innkeeper)

Mother/Daughter weekend getaway

Murphin Ridge Inn

4.2 on March 28, 2013

The cabin was beautiful. Unfortunately the weather was bad during our stay so we could not enjoy the outdoors. There was no tv in the cabin so that was kind of disappointing. The place I beautiful and I will definitely go back when the weather is nicer!

Innkeeper Response
Sorry about the weather. Come back and we will show you another season in all its glory.

- Sherry (innkeeper)

Outstanding is certainly an appropriate description.

5 on March 27, 2013

Every aspect of our stay was outstanding - it even surpassed our expectations based on the information and photos we saw online. A perfect getaway - convenient, beautiful surroundings, superior dining and attention by the inkeepers, great accommodations, and the perfect blend of availble activities and privacy.

Innkeeper Response
We are so glad you enjoyed your stay and that you took the time to tell us! Your applause is what keeps us going. See you on the Ridge.

- Sherry (innkeeper)

Wonderful 20th Anniversary!

5 on March 24, 2013

We couldn't have chosen a more romantic and peaceful location to celebrate our 20th anniversary. The cabin is beautifully appointed. The food rivals any five star restaurant. Sherry, Darryl and their staff are genuinely warm and welcoming. We enjoyed visits to antique shops, Amish furniture shops, bakeries and markets, and a hike on the many paths on the grounds. We stayed three nights, but reluctantly had to return to the real world. We'll definitely return in 2013. JoAnn & John

Innkeeper Response
You bring smiles to our faces. Thank you and keep the romance going.

- Sherry (innkeeper)

Nice, Romantic Getaway

4.6 on March 24, 2013

My wife and I stayed at Muprhin Ridge a few weeks ago and had a wonderful time. The cabin was very pleasant and the food and service was wonderful. Murphin Ridge provides an excellent environment for spending time with each other stress free and uninterrupted. We would definitely go again.

Innkeeper Response
Hope the stress relief stays a while. Thanks and come back when you need a shot of the Ridge.

- Sherry (innkeeper)

Never disappointed

5 on March 20, 2013

As always, an excellent weekend at Murphin Ridge Inn.

Wonderfully relaxing time at Murphin Ridge

4.2 on March 18, 2013

One of the isolated cabins at Murphin Ridge was just what my wife and I needed for a stress-free couple of nights, and the dinner was amazingly tasty.

Innkeeper Response
Anytime you need another stree free getaway, return to the Ridge! We will let the Chef know you enjoyed his work in the kitchen. Thank you!

- Sherry (innkeeper)

Quiet, Peaceful, Relaxing

5 on March 16, 2013

This was the first time we visited Murphin Ridge Inn and we really enjoyed ourselves. It was so peaceful and quiet and relaxing and the food was outstanding! Can't wait to go back again. The staff was awesome!

Innkeeper Response

- Sherry (innkeeper)

Great getaway for a weekend

4.6 on March 10, 2013

Incredible hospitality and food. The location is perfect to get away the hustle and bustle of every day life. Every night was packed full of entertainment when eating dinner. During this time Darryl (one of the owners) would walk around checking on everyone and was so funny. We had the opportunity to experience the guest room and the cabins. If going for a romantic couple weekend - get the cabin.

Innkeeper Response
You nailed Darryl. That is his job description. We will tell him he does his job well. Thanks and come back soon.

- Sherry (innkeeper)

Murphin Ridge exceeds expecations

4.8 on March 10, 2013

Warm hospitality by innkeepers Sherry and Darryl, fine attention to detail in the accommodations, a friendly and helpful staff, and a world-class dining experience combine for a deeply satisfying experience. We booked our next visit within minutes of returning home.

Innkeeper Response
Your return is our 5 star review. Thank you! Our staff is thrilled, they work tirelessly to see that you enjoy your stay. Thanks so much for letting us know!

- Sherry (innkeeper)

Quiet winter night

5 on March 07, 2013

We enjoyed a quiet night away from the kids, which included in-room massages and an amazing dinner! We had a great time and would recommend it to others!

Innkeeper Response
Thanks for spreading the word about your experience to your friends - just don't tell the kids how much fun you had without them!

- Levi (jack-of-most-trades)

My only gripe would be.....

4.6 on March 05, 2013

The only gripe I would have is to have a "few" options for breakfast. We only stayed the one night and it was a weekday so maybe things are run a little differently on a weekend. But being a food lover, I would love to have the option of a few items to chose from for breakast. Other than that, it is our favorite thing we do all year and always look forward to our stay.

More than a B&B

5 on March 04, 2013

We have stayed at this B&B several times and are always very pleased. The service is first class and very personal. The food (both dinner and breakfast) is fantastic. This time we stayed in the Inn and was very pleased with all of amenities like cookies upon arrival and plush robes to use. Next visit I would like to come in the spring or summer so that I can enjoy more of the outdoor activities available at Murphin Ridge.

Innkeeper Response
Thank you for taking the time to note the small details. We truly hope your visits to the Ridge get better each time. We hope to see you on the Ridge when the warmer weather hits. Thank you again!

- Sherry (innkeeper)

A quiet night

4.8 on February 27, 2013

My wife and I decided to take a last minute trip to get away for a night. We could not believe how quiet murphin ridge was. We found ourselves whispering to one another because it seem as though no one else was making a sound. We went to one of the Amish markets and furniture stores nearby. It was a great trip. Very relaxing and family-like. The staff was very kind and helpful. We are planning our next trip to murphin ridge already.

Innkeeper Response
Whispering to one's partner can only be good! Thanks, see you on the Ridge soon.

- Sherry (innkeeper)

Our Perfect Respite

5 on February 24, 2013

We first discovered Murphin Ridge for our 1st anniversary in 2006. We've returned many times since, and it never disappoints. A pre-valentines stay in one of the cabins was the perfect brief escape from the most recent job-related stressors in our lives. A quiet luxurious cabin to enjoy "disconnecting" for a few days, coupled with fantastic food and service. We always leave thinking about our next return trip.

Innkeeper Response
Try to keep a little of the Ridge with you during the "difficult" times. Thanks!

- Sherry (innkeeper)

Birthday Getaway

5 on February 22, 2013

Valentines Weekend

5 on February 21, 2013

My husband and I came to the Inn for a romantic weekend getaway. We had two wonderful dinners and a great massage. As always, the breakfast was wonderful. This is a great place to spend a nice quiet weekend.

Innkeeper Response
Thanks, I will take credit for the breakfast, even though Abbey or Josh probably prepared it! Thanks for taking the time to write.

- Sherry (innkeeper)

Wonderful get-away!

5 on February 21, 2013

My husband and I went for a weekend and loved Murphin Ridge. This was our first time and we definitely plan to return! It is also a beautiful area of the state.

Innkeeper Response
We agree, this area is quite a secret. Its beauty is in its secrecy. Come back soon. There is more to see. Thanks!

- Sherry (innkeeper)

FAvorite Getaway!

5 on February 21, 2013

We have stayed in a Murphin Ridge cabin many times and always come away relaxed. For us, it is the perfect close to home getaway. The Cabin is so comfortable and amenities are well thought out. Dinners and breakfasts are fantastic. Walks in the woods are right out the door ~ watching the sun set and sun rise, enjoying the quiet and the beauty surrounding this spot are all what make for a perfect and relaxing get away. Sherry and Darryl and their staff are very attentive. I am glad we found Murphin Ridge.

Innkeeper Response
Many thanks, I will pass your remarks on to the best staff ever. We are glad you found us!

- Sherry (innkeeper)

Wonderful stay at Murphin Ridge

4.6 on February 20, 2013

Murphin Ridge is a beautiful place with wonderful people! The innkeepers were more than accommodating, always making sure we were happy and comfortable, ready to help with any questions or concerns. We enjoyed exploring Amish country and were pleased at how many stores and antique shops were within a short 10-minute drive of the inn. My only complaint is that the sun came blasting into our room at sunrise- thicker curtains would have been nice, but a sleep mask did the trick. We plan on staying here again in the future!

Innkeeper Response
Thanks for the curtain suggestion. Don't let that keep you away. See you soon.

- Sherry (innkeeper)

Just a delightful place to stay.

5 on February 20, 2013

Just a delightful place to stay. Beautiful Amish countryside and friendly people. The staff at the Inn is first rate. We have stayed here several times and will be going back again.

Murphin Ridge Valentine's stay

The room and service was excellent!

Innkeeper Response

- Sherry (innkeeper)

wonderful place to relax

5 on February 19, 2013

Our stay was a great way to rejuvenate. Sherry and Darryl and all the staff went out of their way to make you feel at home. The cabin provided the perfect place to unwind, away from all distractions. We found the bed to be so comfortable, which sometimes isnt the case in B&B's. The meals were delicious and still are a topic of conversation. We definitely will be back for a longer stay.

Innkeeper Response
Thanks so much for the kind words. We are so happy you rested well. That is why folks come to Murphin. See you soon on the Ridge.

- Sherry (innkeeper)

perfect getaway!

5 on February 18, 2013

Delicious meals, serene setting, gracious hosts Darryl and Sherry and wonderful accomodations all combine to create the perfecf getaway for us. We've lost count how many times we have stayed at Murphin Ridge Inn but try to get there at least twice a year. Each season brings its own magic. It is a place for us to truly unwind, relax and let go of the daily stress. Thank you for a memorable Valentine's Day!

Innkeeper Response
Thank you! Loving people help to make your stay a good one. We are glad we have helped to make good memories.

- Sherry (innkeeper)

Best B&B ever!!

5 on February 16, 2013

We stayed at Murphin ridge inn on a whim last year and couldn't wait to return!! Booked another trip and it was even better the second time! Absolutely STUNNING cabins, hospitality was wonderful and food was amazing! All homemade! I can't say enough about Murphin ridge inn. We will be going back again! I really appreciate the hard work and kindness that they put into our stay. I will recommend it to anyone! Thank you Murphin ridge!!!

Great Experience!

4.8 on February 06, 2013

We celebrated our 25 anniversary on Murphin Ridge. This was our first vist. We found everything to absolutely wonderful.

Quiet relaxtion with great food!

4.4 on January 30, 2013

All the employees were extremely friendly and helpful. The food was homemade and delicious and unique in many ways. The scrambled eggs were out of this world; they had cream cheese and dill in them! We played a lot of indoor board games as the weather was very cold. The pet cats greeted us on the way to breakfast and dinner each night. It was fun to watch the large herd of deer grazing in the back field. Our room was very nice with comfortable furniture, bed and view of the open field with the rolling hills of Appalachia in the background.

Innkeeper Response
You seemed to get the Murphin Experience. Thanks! Come back to the Ridge.

- Sherry (innkeeper)

Wonderful again!

5 on January 28, 2013

We make a visit to 'The Ridge" at elast once a year and are never disappointed. The cabins are wonderful, the food is awesome and friendliness exudes from our hosts, their employees and even fellow guests. This is the perfect getaway!. Keep up the great work.

Innkeeper Response
I am not sure of the innkeepers, but our staff and guests are superlative in all ways. We are fortunate people. Thank you for noticing. I will pass this on to very hardworking people.

- Sherry (innkeeper)


5 on January 27, 2013

Needed a quick getaway to celebrate my husbands birthday. It rained the entire time we were there, but I think that made the experience even better! Scrabble, reading, and wine....what could be better? Fabulous dinner and breakfast. Cannot wait to return!

Innkeeper Response
Bliss is what we hope you have here on the Ridge. Thanks and come back!

- Sherry (innkeeper)

Great Inn!

3.4 on January 24, 2013

- Sherry (innkeeper)

Relaxing weekend

4.6 on January 23, 2013

The Murphin Inn was a fabulous place to unwind and relax. The cabin was great, with all the amenities one would expect. Make sure to take a book as there aren't any TV's in the cabins. The 3 sided gas fireplace and jetted tub were wonderful and provided great ambiance.

Innkeeper Response
Glad you enjoyed your stay without TV. Our intention is just that. Thanks!

- Sherry (innkeeper)

Just as Advertised!!! Relaxation!!! :)

5 on January 22, 2013

Wife and I needed a quite little get-a-way from the kids, work, and everyday stress. We found Murphin Ridge Inn online and was pleased to discover that it was exactly like advertised. We will be planning further get-a-ways at the cabins in the future.

Wonderful Murphin Ridge

5 on January 14, 2013

What a magical place to get away! Loved the room, the surrounding land and the inn keepers. The food servers and chef all get an A++ Topped the dinner with a completely perfect evening around the bonfire sipping red wine by the light of the new snow and full moon!

Innkeeper Response
Snow on the Ridge, and a full moon. Doesn't get better. Thanks for taking the time to let us know.

- Sherry (innkeeper)

Another Great Stay

5 on January 10, 2013

As always, we had a great time at Murphin. At always, we were made to feel very much at home. Come to think of it-Murhin is better than being at home because it's clean and quie and they cook.

38th wedding aniversary

4.6 on January 09, 2013

we had a great time, this was our 4th stay and I know we will be back for another. The food was excellent and the staff were the best. We bought a high chair for grand daughter at Miller's Amish furniture and lunch and a case of wine at Moyer winery.

Innkeeper Response
I will pass your kind comments on to the staff. Thanks and come back!

- Sherry (innkeeper)

Murphin Ridge Inn is the Best!

Fun time

4.0 on January 04, 2013

Three couples went to spend New Years Eve. Everything was very nice, but the meal was extremely expensive and everything was served cold. Very disappointing! I would definitely go back but would go elsewhere to eat!

Murphin Ridge is Awesome

5 on January 03, 2013

Returning to Murphin Ridge is like coming home. They truly treat us like their own family and like royalty. Every staff member exceeds expectations. The cabins are so quiet, clean, peaceful and romantic. The chefs are 5 star. The farm setting in Amish country is spectacular.

Recent stay

5 on December 26, 2012

We stayed at the Murphin Ridge Inn on December 20 and 21st and enjoyed it thoroughly. The dinners were amazing in quality and taste and having such personable inn-keepers made the stay so enjoyable. Any questions were answered promptly and with such knowledge of the area that it made touring around that much more pleasant. We look forward to visiting again. Debra McKenzie

Innkeeper Response
Debra, we sure do appreciate your kind words. We look forward to your return visit. See you on the Ridge.

Much needed getaway

5 on December 12, 2012

My husband and I received some very stressful news on the day before we were due to arrive at Murphin Ridge Inn. Everything about our experience was relaxing...the fireplace and jet tub in our cabin, the big comfy bed, our in room couples' massage, walking the trails in the rain. It was romantic and couldn't have come at a better time. Our thanks to Darryl, Sherry and their crew for being just what we needed to cope with an unexpected change in our lives.

Innkeeper Response
Thanks for taking the time to tell us of your Murphin experience. We all hope life gets better soon.

Peacful and relaxing stay

5 on December 07, 2012

Murphin Ridge Inn is the perfect place to escape for a weekend getaway. It is only a little more then an hour from Cincinnati. The location is beautiful and peaceful. The cabins are clean, bright, and beautiful. The restaurant is great! This great place to go if you need a quiet and relaxing weekend getaway.

Innkeeper Response
We appreciate your kind words. When you need a little R&R, you know you are always welcome back on the Ridge! Thanks again.

Best Time I've Ever Had On a Short Getaway With My Husband

4.6 on November 13, 2012

Murphin Ridge Inn is more than a bed and breakfast, it's an experience. It provides the perfect opportunity to unplug and have some peace while you connect with a loved one. My husband and I loved the amazing food, fun hiking trails, and the cozy cabin we stayed in. The owners and the employees are as friendly as can be, and make you feel right at home. I absolutely cannot wait to go back. My husband and I decided we are going to go there at least once a year every year for the rest of our lives.

We wlll be back!

4.6 on November 12, 2012

We have heard great things about Murphin Ridge Inn for years from local friends. We had a lovely time ~ so relaxing & comfortable. The food was fabulous!


4.6 on November 12, 2012

This was our first time visit and surely not our last.


5 on November 10, 2012

Very romantic!! Perfect weekend getaway!!!

Our favorite B&B

4.8 on November 05, 2012

We have stayed at several B&B's over the last few years in Maine, Ohio, Hawaii, Oregon and Washington and Murphin Ridge is by far our favorite. Daryle and Sherry are the definition of bed and breakfast innkeepers. They are warm and witty and maintain Murphin Ridge in immaculate condition. The pastoral ambiance is so relaxing it's hard to get up in the morning in time for breakfast but you must because the food is wonderful. The staff is incredibly friendly and we love them dearly. My wife and I highly recommend Murphin Ridge to everyone.

Absolutely Outstanding On All Levels!

5 on November 01, 2012

This was a dream trip. Everything was perfect. The inn is immaculate, the food is outstanding and we were treated like family or better. Highly, highly recommended to all.

Anniversary Weekend

4.4 on November 01, 2012

I found this place on the internet and decided my husband and I needed some alone time for our anniversary. We had a wonderful time, Darryl and Sherry were friendly and entertaining. The whole staff was great!! We loved the Inn and will be back.

The five stars are all well earned

5 on October 29, 2012

Even though my wife and I only stayed for two nights, it was just the kind of recharge the two of us needed. Like most folks we know, our lives are full of long hours in our jobs and our faces stuck in one electronic screen or another. Probably one of the best parts of the cabin we stayed in was that there was no television, so we were really able to cut ourselves off. This stay has also inspired us to purchase our own cabin in the woods when we retire. Bring a good book and get ready to just relax. The innkeepers are very personable and the staff was very kind. Everything you could want out of a bed and breakfast is right here. And we can't wait to come back. We really would love to see what this area looks like covered in snow. You won't be disappointed.

Impressive place

5 on October 28, 2012

My husband and I booked a cabin for our one year anniversary and were very pleased. The staff and owners are so friendly they make you feel welcome and at home. We loved the delicious breakfast and had a lovely dinner by the fireplace on our anniversary. Thank you Sherry, Daryl, Levi and Paige for making our stay unforgetable. We'll difinitely be back.

Had a precious time

4.0 on October 25, 2012

We had a precious time. Very kind and friendly staffs, clean and gorgeous room and beautiful nature were there.

Innkeeper Response
Thanks for taking the time to review Murphin. Come back some time to the Ridge.

- Sherry (innkeeper)


5 on October 18, 2012

We recently stayed at the Murphin Ridge Inn. Our goal was to have a quick getaway, relax and enjoy nature. Our stay exeeded our expectations for all three. It truely was wonderful and we were sad to leave. Can't wait to do it again!

Wonderful as always!

4.4 on October 14, 2012

There is nothing better to beat the stress of everyday life than to have a weekend at the Ridge! We reserved a cabin for the 5th time and enjoyed every minute! Our Friday started with an evening spent at the local Amish auction and fundraiser for the school! What a wonderful experience! As for the innkeepers, a large group was there at the same time but you would never have known it! Darryl and Sherry worked hard to make sure that every couple felt welcome. Thank you! We'll be back....and selfishly, we still hope to see you both!


5 on October 12, 2012

Darryl and Sherry are outstanding hosts and the dining is excellent!! All of the staff are very friendly and ready to serve you with kindness and friendship. We LOVE going there, it's like going HOME on your mini-vacation!!

Lovely Getaway BedNBreakfast

4.8 on October 10, 2012

Our daughter was married on Oct 5 on the patio and it was beautiful. Karen did a wonderful job. We had 4 cabins and my family had no idea what they were in for. They have raved about Murphin Ridge since the wedding and they all want to come back again. My husband and I are coming back by ourselves and then again with another couple. The hospitality, service and dining was outstanding. The Inn and the grounds are beautiful. My family wants to all "kick in" and buy it! Haha! We can't thank youi enough for our wonderful stay. I already have your cookbook and I bought mugs for everyone to remember their stay. Warmest regards, Connie Bruser

Awesome, totally exceeded my expectations!

5 on October 09, 2012

My sister got married there this past weekend and my parents booked the rooms. I did not know what to expect but the whole experience was out of this world. It is a totally "chilled out" place that really is peaceful and surreal. The staff were very friendly and accomodating and always attentive to our needs. I will definitely go back and would recommend it to my friends and other family.

Peaceful getaway

4.4 on October 06, 2012

We rent a cabin 4 or 5 times a year, always an enjoyable stay. Expect to eat well, the owners are very visible and care about their guests.

Great stay at Murphin Ridge

4.6 on October 03, 2012

We really enjoyed our stay at Murphin Ridge. We were looking to disconnect and it serves this really well. We did visit some local Amish stores and the Serpeant Mound which was very interesting. We didn't find much in the local towns but did some great walks and hikes in the area as well. The restaurant was good and the food was excellent. I would love to see some better wines provided or allow you to bring your own.

Perfect 33rd

5 on September 27, 2012

My wife and I spent our 33rd anniversary at Murphin Ridge. Perfect place to relax and enjoy a slower pace. The owners are delightful and the food is some of the best that I have ever enjoyed.

Perfect Getaway

4.6 on September 23, 2012

Murphin Ridge is just the place for getting away from it all. The cabin was very well decorated and had many amenities such as a jacuzzi, two-person shower, refrigerator, fireplace. The restaurant was excellent and the owners were very gracious and engaging. They made us feel at home. We also enjoyed the evening firepit and made several new friends.

Feel like Royalty

4.8 on September 17, 2012

My wife and I stayed on Labor Day weekend 2012 at the Murphin Ridge in. We rented cabin number nine and it was beautiful. All of your needs are met by the friendly staff. The owners Darryl and Sherry do everything to make your stay as enjoyable as possible. I would recommend the Murphin Ridge Inn to anyone who wants a relaxing, romantic getaway. The food is unbelievable and rates with the finest of restaurants anywhere. We will definitely be coming back the first chance we get!

Innkeeper Response
Thanks for the kind words. We passed your reviews on to our hard working restaurant staff. Hurry back!

Better Than Our Honeymoon!

4.6 on September 16, 2012

Just got home today from a 2 night stay in one of the cabins at Murphin Ridge Inn. We did not want to leave "Heaven On Earth." We simply cannot say enough good things about this place. Everything was excellent...the cabin...the views...the service. The breakfasts and dinner were out of this world! Sherry, Darryl and staff do a fantastic job. It is extremely pricey for the cabins, but well worth the privacy. We are already saving up so we can go back. My husband and I enjoyed our stay here more than our honeymoon in Hawaii 18 years ago!

Innkeeper Response
Thank you! Quite a comoplement. We all get better with age. Wait till the 25th. It only gets better! Come back to the Ridge.

Gorgeous Getaway

3.8 on September 15, 2012

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed a much deserved, relaxing, restful, romantic getaway, and Murphin Ridge Inn fulfilled our need. Although our stay was only for two-days, the staff made us feel very welcome and warm as if we had been friends of theirs for many years. Despite that I have a significant disability and use a power-wheelchair for mobility, the grounds and buildings of Murphin Ridge proved to be very navigable to me with the use of my portable ramp that I brought to get in and out of the cabin. Although Murphin Ridge Inn does not completely meet the Americans with Disabilities Act standards, it is as they promote "handicapped-friendly" and could be even more so if they provided a portable ramp for access to the swimming pool and cabins (as there is one-step to enter both) or simply build a small permanent ramp on a couple of cabins. Should they do so and promote these cabins as "handicapped-friendly," it could definitely increase their business to be inclusive to all. Overall, a memorable experience we will always cherish in our hearts and can't wait to return for another getaway from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.

Innkeeper Response
Thank you for your recommendations. We want your stay to be the best it can be and to that end we will do the best we possibly can. We are glad that you want to return to the inn.

Anniversary Weekend in Utopia

5 on September 12, 2012

The entire visit was magical from start to finish. The Inn and the cabins are absolutely gorgeous and impeccably clean. The staff make their guests feel like welcome family members. The food was incredible and the vistas perfect. We took a long walk on the grounds, which was so peaceful and beautiful. What a fantastic way to get away from daily life and live in beauty for a few days. We can't wait to return.

Innkeeper Response
Wow! We are elated that your stay was 5 star. Your good time makes all of us feel that what we do is appreciated. Many thanks and do come back. We are happy that you are happy.

- Sherry (innkeeper)

A weekend get away!

5 on September 12, 2012

Our experience at Murphin Ridge Inn was a fun and relaxing time.Taking a quiet walk on the trails or just sitting in the rocking chairs on the porch and reading a book. Breakfast were great and the dinners were excellent. Finishing the night relaxing at the fire pit with a glass of wine enjoying conversation with other guest. Could not image a better time! We will return.

Innkeeper Response
Returning is the best complement you could give us. The great rating feels good too.

- Sherry (innkeeper)

Wonderful & Welcoming - an exceptional stay

5 on September 12, 2012

The staff at the Murphin Ridge Inn is - in a word - fantastic. They are warm and welcoming. Everything was done to make you feel relaxed and valued - more as a friend than just a customer. Facilities are great. Dining is OUTSTANDING! They did a wonderful job accommodating some special requests we had during our stay. I'd stay there again - and HIGHLY recommend them.

Innkeeper Response
You are correct. We have the BEST staff ever, anywhere. They even have the backs of two old innkeepers. Thanks and come back to the Ridge.

- Sherry (innkeeper)

last minute getaway

5 on September 08, 2012

We try to come to Murphin Ridge at least once a year for a retreat from the day to day. We picked a room with a private porch this time. It was peaceful and perfect! The meals are outstanding and after breakfast we took a hike on the trails and photographed wild flowers.

Innkeeper Response
You really KNOW us! This is what Murphin is about. Thank you for noticing.

- Sherry (innkeeper)

Back to Murphin....

4.2 on September 06, 2012

This was my third stay. I love this place but it is very pricey so I have to save up before going back. So, I guess it's worth it but would love a lower price so I could go back more often!

Innkeeper Response
Please take a look at our website to see specials. We know good things are costly and worth we hope waiting for. Thanks and do come back.

- Sherry (innkeeper)

A wonderful weekend!

4.8 on September 06, 2012

My wife and I spent our 30th wedding anniversary at Murphin Ridge. The cabin was extremely well appointed, clean, service was excellent and the food at the restaurant was all delicious and well above standard fare.We look forward to our next visit to this quiet setting in Adams county.

Peaceful and refreshing

4.6 on September 06, 2012

two nights in an extraordinarily peaceful setting, spacious room, really good food, outstanding service from all staff, friendly hosts, refreshing dips in the pool...we would go back in a heartbeat!

Innkeeper Response
Don't hesitate to come back in the Winter. The snow is great to jump into. And thanks for taking the time to let us know of your stay.

- Sherry (innkeeper)

Get away from it all

4.6 on September 02, 2012

We celebrated our 34th anniversary in one of the cabins. The cabins are worth the splurge for a romantic weekend. The lodging, food, and hosts make this a very special place tucked away in scenic Amish country in Adams county.

Murphin Ridge Inn review

4.6 on August 29, 2012

Coffee and tea in the guest house ran out both days of my stay but was available in the dinning facility.

August 2012

4.6 on August 27, 2012

Highly recommend staying in one of the cabins. We stayed in cabin #7 and it was very nice. This is a great place to spend a romantic night or weekend. Dinner was excellent and breakfast may have even been better! We had a massage in the cabin and it was excellent. If you go be sure to look for Short-tailed Bob! He's a cute cat that walks around the property! He walked us back to our cabin after dinner one night!

Peacefully pleasant

5 on August 27, 2012

Our stay at Murphin Inn was very pleasant and, my thoughts are still there from time to time. It was just like home away from home, but allowing you a serene experience without the hurries of home. We enjoyed the elegant dinners and the picnic lunch that they prepared. There is no place like Murphin Inn. We look forward to our return in the near future.


5 on August 27, 2012

This is our third annual trip in room #1 at the #1 Murphin Ridge Inn it is so peaceful and fun too and the food was absolutely delicious! We hiked on the trail, played shuffleboard and roasted the biggest marshmellows ever around the fire pit. Darryl and Sherry are the best host and hostess ever!

our girls get away week-end!

5 on August 23, 2012

Where do I start...... absolutely fantastic! Every thing was as I hoped it would be.I wanted to go somewhere to fall back and regroup about my life and I most certainly did that this weekend. I am already planning my next trip as soon as possible......! Thanks to everyone! See you soon! Jan Stephens

Awesome retreat

4.8 on August 23, 2012

Not only did we have an awesome dinner with Rockmill Brews paring but beautiful and peaceful time away. We always feel renewed when we have been to the Ridge.

A Perfect Weekend

5 on August 22, 2012

As a celebration of 12 years together, my wife and I treated ourselves to a stay here. Whether you're looking for a chance to get away and stay active on the hiking trails or the pool, or if you just want to stay in your room for two days, this is the perfect place. The room was beautiful and comfortable, the food was amazing (don't miss the field to farm festival, best burger I've ever had) and the staff was cheerful and helpful. Don't let anybody tell you that this place is anything short of perfect.

Great place to stay

4.8 on August 22, 2012

My fiancee and I really enjoyed our stay at Murphin Ridge. We rented a cabin and it was so romantic, just what we needed. The food was great and the environment was really terrific. thank you so much for your hospitality. We will be back!

Innkeeper Response
Our best to you both. Sounds like Murphin fullfilled your needs. You are welcome. We hope you will celebrate many happy anniversaries at Murphin. And thank you!

Wonderfully amazing Inn! A little on the pricey side. Beautiful setting. Delicious food. Glorious hospitality!

Innkeeper Response
Thanks so much for your response. We appreciate the kind words. We take your comments to heart.

- Sherry (innkeeper)

Easy to relax.

4.2 on August 20, 2012

We especially enjoyed hiking on the property, enjoying the Amish neighbors, then sinking into the whirlpool next to the fireplace.

Innkeeper Response
So glad your stay was a good one. We love the "sinking into the whirlpool..." comment. Aaah Murphin. Come back please.

- Sherry (innkeeper)

Wonderful place to relax and refresh. -

4.2 on August 19, 2012

Time went by too fast. We loved this place and will return. Swimming pool, camp fire under the stars, dining on the patio, deer in the field, quiet and peaceful trails to walk in a beautiful setting of gentle hills.

Innkeeper Response
You described all that is Murphin Ridge. Thanks so much.

Perfect Spot

A wonderful escape

5 on August 15, 2012

Another wonderful visit in Amish country, relaxing in the pleasant surroundings of an Amish built cabin with jacuzzi tub, large walk-in shower, and gourmet meals served in a laid-back atmosphere. My children love the swimming pool and fire pit for relaxing and socializing, as well as the frog pond and outdoor games. I love the peaceful surroundings, garden, hiking trails, and hospitality. We will be back soon! Caroline

Innkeeper Response
Wow! We are so happy you like us! We love you and your family. It is always a joy to have you all at the Inn.

Murphin Ridge Inn Review

4.4 on August 15, 2012

The rooms were immaculate, and provided a great view of the area. The service providers were friendly and helpful. The adjacent restaurant provided great food, but was a bit pricey. This B&B is perfect for people who want a relaxing vacation and an opportunity to experience what Amish country has to offer.

Innkeeper Response
Thanks for your input. We find it extremely helpful.

- Sherry (innkeeper)

Great two day getaway

3.8 on August 13, 2012

My wife and I spent two nights at the Murphin Ridge Inn. We stayed in one of the cabins. Overall, the stay was wonderful. The owners and staff were very hospitable. The cabin was spacious and had every amenity. The location is remote and that was what we were looking for. The restaurant was very inviting. The food was nothing special though. It was also priced pretty high.

Innkeeper Response
Thank you so much for your input. We take all comments seriously. We hope you come back to the Ridge.

- Sherry (innkeeper)

Terrific Anniversary Weekend thanks to Murphin Ridge!

5 on August 09, 2012

Our second stay was just as wonderful as the first. Thank you for making our weekend special. We will be back next year!

Innkeeper Response
You are welcome. It is truly our pleasure.

- Sherry (innkeeper)

So peaceful!

4.6 on August 07, 2012

The property was so peaceful and inviting. I don't usually spend time just sitting and staring out at nature, but I did here! I especially enjoyed the lack of TV viewing (although I think it was hard for my hubby). We stayed in a cabin which was so cozy. One thing I would recommend is that visitors bring their own bottle of wine or other beverage, as Murphin Ridge is located in a dry county. You can buy wine in the dining room, but it is pricey. The meals were very good, but definitely not in the "light and healthy" category. We found a place in West Union, the Happy Turtle, which sold healthier fare, but it was the little take-out type. Overall, we had a relaxing two-day getaway.

Wonderful Getaway at The Murphin Ridge Inn

4.8 on August 06, 2012

My husband and I had an outstanding time at the Murphin Ridge Inn. We walked off the excellent food by hiking at the Edge of Appalachia. Whatever is served for breakfast or dinner is always freshly prepared and interesting. If you choose a hamburger it is never just a hamburger.

Favorite anniversary get away

5 on August 05, 2012

Murphin Ridge is a wonderful place to get away from it all for your anniversary or any other time. The inn keepers are absolutely amazing. They are down to earth and want to take care of you. They honor most special requests because they genuinely want to take care of their customers. The cabins are great! The food is outstanding! We will continue to go back any chance we can!

Surprising and Delightful - An Exceptional B & B

5 on August 04, 2012

What a delightful surprise to find this most wonderful B & B in the middle of Amish Country! It was our first stay at Murphin Ridge Inn, and we couldn't have been happier with our stay - the comfortable accommodations, the relaxing atmosphere, the first class menu, and the warm and welcoming service. (Darryl and Sherry are host and hostess supreme!) Our cabin amenities were beyond our expectations with soft, smooth high quality bedding, a comfortable mattress, a tub for two including bath supplies and lush toweling. Oh, and did I mention that every afternoon a snack is delivered to your room (home-made cookies in our case). And the food!!! Wow! My husband and I are in agreement that the Inn's dinner menu and breakfast offerings are some of the best we have ever experienced. The food is fresh and right from the garden... absolutely delicious! We can hardly wait to stay at Murphin Ridge Inn again and have already made reservations for our next visit.

Girl's Weekend 2012

4.2 on August 01, 2012

I had a wonderful and relaxing weekend with my sister-in-laws, Mother-in law and daughter. The rooms were very large and well equiped, except for the lack of a televison. Which was fine since there was a tv in the living room. (We had to see the opening of the 2012 Olympics) I loved the fire pit which we enjoyed sitting around one night, just perfect! The breakfast was delicious as was the dinner we enjoyed on Sat. evening.

Innkeeper Response
Thanks for taking the time to tell folks of your stay. Come back to the Ridge.

A Little Piece Heaven

This was our ninth stay at Murphin Ridge and we will be returning in the Fall! From the very friendly staff to the exquisite food to the peace that enfolds you no matter where you go, Murphin Ridge is a blanket for your soul. :) I could not recommend this more to anyone who wants to just get away from stress!

Innkeeper Response
I love your words. May we use them on the website? See you for the tenth.

Perfect, Tranquil Getaway!!

4.8 on July 22, 2012

Loved our stay at Murphin Ridge!

4.8 on July 18, 2012

We had a wonderful family reunion at Murphin Ridge! The rooms were so clean and the set up was perfect. The owners and the staff went out of their way to make sure we had everything we needed and wanted! Would love to go back for another stay!!!! The food is outstanding, but gave dining four stars because ordering from the menu can be a little pricey. But breakfast is included and is delicious!!!!

Innkeeper Response
Thanks for the kind words. We are ever vigilent in trying to keep quality and cost in line. We appreciate you letting us know. Come back any time.

- Sherry (innkeeper)

Serenity at its best!

4.8 on July 15, 2012

Murphin Ridge exceeded our expectations in so many ways. The food was fantastic (I have allergy issues...they were so careful!). The owners (Sherry & Darryl) and the staff took care of all the little things to make the stay so memorable. The cabin was peaceful, the grounds beautiful, and our visit at Murphin Ridge is one we want to repeat.

Innkeeper Response
Thanks so much and do make sure to repeat the Murphin experience.

Murphin Ridge Inn Getaway

4.6 on July 15, 2012

Excellent 1 Night getaway. Stayed in one of the Wooded cabins-very clean, very nice, very modern,very quiet Excellent breakfast Excellent staff

Excellent bed and breakfast. Highly recommended

5 on July 14, 2012

We stayed in the Fantastik Carol's cottage. Everything was perfect. Immaculate attention to detail. Dining in the old house was outstanding as was breakfast the next morning. If you are seeking a quiet get-away in the country, look no further than the Murphin Ridge Inn. You will not be disappointed.

Very relaxing and quiet, just what we were looking for!

4.2 on July 14, 2012

It was a great time at a very quaint and relaxing inn! We would highly recommend Murphin Ridge to anyone who is looking for a quiet, couple of day getaway!

Murphin Ridge Inn is a beautiful setting for a quiet stay in the country.

One Is Never Enough

5 on July 09, 2012

My husband and I stayed in one of the cabins. It was super spacious and allowed so much natural light in! We really enjoyed all of the little 'extra's involved in our stay - like the fresh-baked cookies delivered each day to our room, the restocking of teas, water, bath oils and soaps and the friendliness of the entire staff. The owners are hilarious, warm-hearted people and the food was simply amazing! Every morning, we just couldn't wait to hear what they were going to serve. There's no rush, no hurry, they continued to fill your coffee mug and let you just sit back and relax while looking out the window to their beautiful gardens while listening to timeless classics. They offered the use of a television and DVD player in the main guest house, but we were more than content sitting on our porch rocking chairs with a good book, enjoying the beauty of God's nature around us. This will certainly NOT be our only time visiting! We look forward to making this a frequent vacation spot! ~Tim & Stephany Weldon

Peace and Quiet - a much needed break!

5 on July 08, 2012

We had a wonderful stay that was cut short due to our daughter's injury. We loved the peace and quiet. The food was superb! So sad that we did not get to enjoy our second night there. Thank you for being understanding and not charging us the full rate for the second night. We will be back! Sue & Pat Kowalski

Perfect weekend getaway!

5 on July 07, 2012

I had high expectations after reading many good reviews online about Murphin Ridge. My expectations were met and exceeded. Thank you for the wonderful service! This was exactly the weekend I was looking for.

Secluded Getaway

5 on July 05, 2012

Murphin Ridge is a nice quite getaway in southern Ohio Amish country. Quite and peaceful....a haven of rest from the city restlessness. I recommend the cabins, but the guest house can be a great rendezvous for several couples wishing to have a good time together.


4.4 on July 03, 2012

If you and the spouse just want to get away from it all, Murphin Ridge is the place. Food was very good. I think it was a little pricy, but hey, you only have your first anniversary once. I got steak, the missus got chicken, gourmet mac & cheese with roasted tomatoes was to die for. We staid in MY Cabin. Rooms were super clean, hot tub, double shower, King Size bed. checkerboard table, remote 2 sided fireplace, remote ceiling fan. The only thing lacking was A) counter space (we brought food to try to keep costs down & B) the bathroom stall had a slatted door (use your imagination). Birdwatching area was fun, big fire pit. We spend a couple hours out there with some friendly regulars and watched satellites in the clear night sky! The have a pool as well, clean and clear. Saw very few kids. Def a place for people to come and relax. I have to say, the staff made the difference. Always smiling, with great attitudes. ps. DO NOT try the Mexican Restaurant in West Union. Trust me.

Diamond in the rough... a must place to stay!

5 on June 26, 2012

This is the second time we stayed at Murphin Ridge Inn and it was the most relaxing time we ever spent. Most definitely will return for a third time.

Wonderful weekend

5 on June 25, 2012

My wife & I had a wonderful weekend at the Murphin Ridge Inn. We stayed in one of the cabins off in the woods. We enjoyed the king size bed, the whirlpool, fireplace, and relaxing in the rockers on the front porch. The food & service was excellent! They have some of the best coffee we've ever drank. We even purchased some from the store to take home. Recommend visiting Millers Amish bakery while staying.

Awesome as always.

5 on June 25, 2012

This was our 7th or 8th time here. We keep coming back because of the outstanding service and personal warmth shown by the Owners and staff. Cabins spotless, beds comfy, fireplace firey, and Jacuzzi roomy. Food at dinner is over the top excellent, and the breakfast is worth the whole megillah.

Girlfriends Getaway

5 on June 20, 2012

My long-time best friend and I thoroughly enjoyed the peaceful and serene setting of Murphin Inn. The clean, beautiful, and well-appointed cabin nestled in the woods was an upgrade to our original reservation. We loved the friendly personal attention of the innkeepers and staff, and savored the delicious meals served on the relaxing patio. Our retreat away from the hectic pace of our busy lives - and husbands - was truly more than we could have hoped for. We plan to make our visit to Murphin Inn an annual event! Thank you!

anniversary getaway

A perfect bit of paradise!

The Inn is such a delight. The staff pampers you with small delights, such as fresh, homemade cookies left at your door each afternoon. I cannot remember such a relaxing, refreshing time. We will definitely visit again soon.

Great getaway

4.8 on June 13, 2012

The meals were outstanding and the staff was friendly and willing to go the next step in making sure we were happy during our stay.

Awesome Retreat!

5 on June 07, 2012

The cabin was wonderful and just as promised in the website, the food was outstanding and worth every penny, we enjoyed a couples massage and the ladies were so good! The owners are friendly along with the rest of the staff! I can't say enough good things about Murphin Ridge Inn! We will be back!

Amazing quiet getaway close to home

5 on June 06, 2012

This unbelieveable getaway is so close to home, yet so far away. Secluded away in West Union, it provides you that quiet, calming getaway from the stress and strain of every day life. The cabins are incredible. Every amenity you want is at your disposal and those you don't need are not present. The biggest surprise was the restaurant! Definitely it can contend with any big city 4 star restaurant. Ingredients are all obtained locally and taste that way. We couldn't wait for the next course. each was a surprise to the palate, far greater then the previous one. Unfortunately we had to cut our stay short due to an emergency, but can NOT wait to return!

Great getaway

3.6 on June 06, 2012

My wife and I spent a weekend evening at Murphin Ridge to celebrate her Birthday. We stayed in one of the King Cabins which was very spacious for two people, not lacking for anything and just an all around cool place to stay. Dinner & breakfast the following morning exceeded our expectations. We were pleasantly surprised to find the high level of culinary skill at this country Inn. Everything we tasted, from the evening's Salmon entree cooked to a perfect medium rare, to the sumptuous Griddle cakes the following morning ,breakfast is included, was a "Ten". This is an enchanting place to spend some time,. Cool vibe and a great place to take your best girl! Entire Staff was pleasant, & friendly. The Proprietors, Darryl & Sherry are delightfully friendly people and interesting to talk with Great motorcycle ride to the Inn coming from Hillsboro. We will definitely be back!

As Advertised!

This was our first visit to Murphin Ridge Inn. We were very pleasantly pleased with our stay. Life can be so busy and hectic sometimes and when we were there we felt so relaxed and at peace. It is a beautiful property and so peaceful and quiet. All the staff made us feel very special and at ease. I would recommend this B&B to anyone. We were sad when we had to leave. We will be returning there again for sure.

Wonderful Weekend Getaway

5 on May 30, 2012

My husband and I needed a weekend away badly! My in-laws recommended Murphin Ridge. We're SO glad we took their advice. It's incredibly relaxing. The staff is so accommodating and friendly! We were a little wary about the fact that there aren't any TVs or WiFi in the cabins, but we found plenty to do in the area and had so much more time to talk and have quiet time together than in a regular hotel or resort. The food was AMAZING!! We bought the cook book on our way out! We'll definately be back many more times!

Relaxing getaway

5 on May 30, 2012

As always, we had a wonderful time on the Ridge. Hiked, spent time at the pool, had a massage and just enjoyed ourselves! Joe & Diane Columbus, OH

Nice location, clean rooms, and good service.

4.2 on May 23, 2012

We stayed for 2 nights and found the rooms and grounds very well-cared for and the food in the dining room very good as well. The price of dinners was high for the location, but there wasn't an obvious alternative nearby.

Loved it!

Murphin Ridge Inn exceeded our expectaitions! This was our first time at a bed and breakfast and we loved it! So peaceful and relaxing!Very clean and excellent service!Food was wonderful! We can't wait to go back and try a cabin!

Simply Fantastic!

4.8 on May 15, 2012

I recently brought my wife to Murphin Ridge Inn for her birthday. We stayed in cabin #9, and found it to be very beautiful and clean throughout. First off, my wife enjoyed an in-cabin massage while I took a nice quiet walk of the premises. Later, we walked to the eating quarters where we ate some of the best food I have had in a long time! After dinner, we joined some other dinner guests around the campfire, and shared some great stories. The night was cooling off... and the see through fireplace and jacuzzi were just what the doctor ordered. The next morning, we enjoyed some of the best homemade granola I have ever tried, in addition to eggs, bacon, and hashbrowns... All delicious! Every staff member we met was increadably kind and helpful! We will visit again!

Birthday Surprise

4.0 on May 14, 2012

I booked a cabin for my wife's birthday. I also purchased the champaign and cake package. She loved the cake and is still talking about it days later. The cabins are well built, clean and comfortable. The property was well maintained and a very relaxing atmosphere. The best part though was the food. The dinner is worth the trip and sets you up for a nice evening. I only wish we had better weather. We can't wait to go back and cap off dinner with an evening around the outdoor fire.

Great weekend getaway

4.6 on May 07, 2012

Wonderful and helpful innkeepers. They have good contacts with local merchants if you are looking for something in particular. The food is outstanding but the menu is limited. The breakfasts are great.

an amazing getaway

5 on May 07, 2012

This is my second time staying at the Murphin Ridge Inn, and it was even better than I remembered. The staff always takes such good care of you --- they make you feel like you are at home away from home. The setting is incredibly relaxing --- a wonderful place to get away!

Another great stay!

4.4 on May 06, 2012

This was our 2nd stay Murphin Ridge Inn. The cabins are the only way to go. What a beautiful location. Really enjoyed the fire at night outside under the stars. The breakfasts were amazing and we got a lot more food at breakfast than previously. The dinners there are expensive. The salad with dinner was really good/dressings were amazing. I thought the value for dinner was not as good. I will stay there again and again, it's a nice getaway for where we live!


5 on May 02, 2012

Stayed 2 nights, the food was Soooo yummy, the environment was very relaxing,staff was very friendly

April Get Away (Semi-Off Season)

3.8 on April 29, 2012

~ Beautiful accomodations - cabins' decor is excellent! Had a few dead ants from a previous spraying of cabin, but not a big deal and Daryl knocked some $ off of the tab. Definitely would not stop me from visiting again. Everything else immaculate. Might add a few more pegs for hanging miscellaneous items and some additional lighting over the kitchenette area. Always wish for real fireplaces vs. gas, but recognize it is probably a fire/insurance issue. ~ Great food! Visited Sun-Tue so might not of had "1st string" chef whole time, but still excellent. Salads and chicken superb. Would of appreciated more choices in menu e.g. fowl (duck, pheasant) and missed not having a chance to sample foggy bottom pancakes. ~ Peaceful surroundings! Lovely paths, but I was too lazy to utilize this time. On-site biking would be a nice addition. During our visit there was really only one other couple and the weather turned rather cool, so there was limited activity. We did, however, hang out around the fire pit one evening which was very pleasant. ~ Outstanding staff! Enough said. All we very accomodating. ~ Charming owners - Sherry & Daryl are great fun! Would love to talk with them all day. They are obviously incredibly busy people, but they manage to make time to speak with and get to know all of their guests and make each person feel special. Essential skills for inn owners ; )

A short drive from home led us to a world of peaceful beauty in the country. Evening shadows fall across a rolling field and the only sound is rustling wind and birdsong - tranquility at its best.

Everything from the food, location, room layout, and amenities was exactly what we were looking for during our stay.

Springtime Frolic

Had a wonderful April visit at Murphin Ridge. The food was spectacular and the hospitality was heart warming.

Gone 12 years, still as great

4.6 on March 22, 2012

Had an absolutley lovely and peacefull time at Murphin Ridge in Cabin #7. Loved sitting on the back porch with wine, and loved the fire pit on a star lit night. The whole team at the Ridge is so wonderfully accomodating.

Perfect quick getaway

4.2 on March 14, 2012

This was the perfect place to get away for my wife and I. It was only an hour from home yet far enough to feel we were away. The cabin we stayed in was great, we enjoyed the fireplace and the whirlpool but the bed was extremely comfortable which surprised us. The food was amazing, we had steaks the first night that came with a fantastic blackbean soup. The next morning the foggy bottom pancakes were delicious. That afternoon we had a box lunch which included some delicious brownies. For dinner that evening we had chicken and the mac and cheese. Soup that evening was celery pear, again delicious. The morning quiche was outstanding as well. The bar had generous pours which had us stumbling to the cabin the final evening. Everything was very clean and worth the price. We will definitely return for another weekend away.

The perfect place for meditation and deep-thought

4.6 on March 14, 2012

After a particularly tumultuous time in our lives, my husband and I were desperate to escape and unplug for a long weekend. We needed time together, away from ringing phones and email and visitors, to really ruminate on the next steps in our lives, and we'd stayed at Murphin Ridge four years prior. It was even better than we'd remembered it. We've never been anywhere more appropriate to take a "creative pause" in our lives. Murphin Ridge engenders both peace and conversation, a clear and calm space to think, to plan, to escape back to just being human. Darryl and Sherry, and furthermore each member of their staff, treated us like old friends. The food was superb; upon returning home my husband remarked that he thought he was spoiled for all other food for life, and after those delicious four course meals (and exquisite breakfasts in particular), he might be right. Murphin Ridge exhibits a style of service that we thought was gone from the world, and we'll be returning as soon as we can to this safe haven.

Everything We Wanted and More

4.4 on March 12, 2012

Wonderful tubs, showers, beds, breakfasts, dinners and warm and welcoming hosts.

very relaxint stay

4.6 on March 10, 2012

The room was beautiful and clean and very comfortable. The whole atmosphere was warm and relaxing. The food and service was wonderful. I would definitely recommen this cozy and quiet getaway.

Murphin Ridge Excels Once More Time

5 on March 09, 2012

Our stay was lovely. We are so impressed with the attention todetail that the McKenney's have placed into the inn. They put Murphin Ridge on the map with the addition of cabins, David T. Smith furniture, and the dining rooms and the sitting room take you back to another day. Sheri and Gus Neuss III


5 on March 07, 2012

I have traveled most of the world during my 26 years in the military in peacetime and time of turmoil and I only wish I could have found a place like Murphin Ridge were I could escape my problems at that time. The staff from the owners to the grounds people were the friendliest people, always willing to talk or help you with all your needs and or desires. Everything about the Ridge was beautiful, relaxing, romantic and tranquil. This is the one place that everyone should share with the one you love.

Our Stay in March

4.2 on March 07, 2012

We stayed in the Main House and it was great. Nice, clean room, and very comfortable. The dinner food was exceptional and the service excellent. Breakfast was very good. The innkeepers were very friendly and helpful. Will try and get back in the summer time.

Murphin Ridge Inn Is Excellent

4.0 on February 26, 2012

Made a quick trip to Ohio and the company I was visiting suggested the Murphin Ridge Inn. I received a call on the trip from the airport to make sure I could find the way. Also they waited up for me to get there; I arrived around 9:30 pm. Very accommodating folks, I had to leave early the next morning before breakfast but they made sure I had some items available for my breakfast. I had the a best accommodations and a beautiful sunrise. Very clean and quite. I will go back when I can enjoy it fully. Thanks Again ....

We had a wonderful stay (our 2nd time) in a cabin. It was a cold weekend so we really enjoyed the fireplace and the whirlpool tub. We had a delicious dinner with great service and the best part we just walked back to the cabin. The only thing is we wish they would serve breakfast a little later so we could sleep in, but not a deal breaker. Morrow OH

Beautiful weekend!

4.6 on February 16, 2012

This was our first visit to Murphin Ridge Inn and will definitely not be our last!! We loved the quiet setting and the staff made us feel like family. The delicious breakfast was worth getting up for. We are looking forward to returning in the future.

Great Stay

We stayed at Murphin Ridge for two nights at the end of January. This was our third stay at the Inn, all of which have been in the cabins. As usual, the cabin was perfect , the service was great and the food was delicious. We will definitely be back.

Great Valentine Getaway

4.0 on February 15, 2012

My husband and I just had our first stay at Murphin Ridge Inn and it won't be our last. We rented one of the new cabins, Encore, and were surpirsed at how nice it was. This little hidden gem was a nice secret. It was very warm and cozy . Nice furnishings with all the imenities. Hot tub, glass enclosed , freestanding fireplace. Very well appointed room with every attention to detail in a wooded area that feels very private. The dining in a restored colonial was amazing and a nice surprise. we weren't expecting a chef and food of that quality. The owners are onsite and hands on. Very engaging and make sure everything it to your satifation. They even cleared the snow from our truck early the next morning!

Innkeeper Response
Thanks so much. Your words are being passed on to the staff who will appreciate the time you took to let us know as much as we do. We hope to see you on the Ridge soon.

Great Weekend!

We had 3 couples each with a cabin. It was the perfect mix of togetherness and aloneness with your spouse. Meals and service where outstanding. Would like to return in warner weather.

Beautiful place for a special event stay!

4.4 on February 01, 2012

Cleanliness would have been rated outstanding if the glass on the fireplace had not been dirty on the inside. That's it, everything else was wonderful. The staff and owners are all very accommodating and friendly.

Innkeeper Response
Because of you taking the time to let us know of your stay, we have competed cleaning the glass on the Fireplaces and we are thrilled. Thanks for the kind words and the honest response. Come back to the Ridge soon!

Murphin Ridge is the best run, best food, cleanest, best ambiance, awesome pleace ever!

More than a vacation

4.6 on January 23, 2012

This place is absolutely wonderful! My fiancé and I got engaged there a year ago and have decided to have our "mini honeymoon" there. The cabins are beautiful and cozy, the food is to die for, and the owners and staff are such great people who make you feel welcome. I know this will be a vacation spot for us for many years to come.


4.0 on January 19, 2012

The CABIN is an outstanding experience!! So good to mingle with Staff as well with guests. And the privacy of it all is most refreshing.

Our home away from home...

4.8 on January 18, 2012

My wife and I visit Murphin Ridge every year. It was outstanding the first year and yet somehow gets better with each passing year. The people are friendly, the service outstanding and the food is simply incredible. We have thought once or twice about trying someplace new, but when you have discovered the best we have decided to stick with it. We can't wait until we are able to go again.

First class treatment

5 on January 15, 2012

We have stayed there before - this was our fourth visit. We wanted to take in the NewYear as we did with Thanksgiving a few years back. Every time we stay, we are treated with a smile and first class treatment

A Christmas getaway.

4.6 on January 09, 2012

Christmas eve and day were spent in the splendor of the hills and woods of Adams County and the two miles of trails on the lodge property. Of course, the fireplace in our room, and the great dinners both nights made our stay the best it could possibly be. Another necity is the option to have a custom meal designed by the Inn's Chef.


4.2 on January 04, 2012

The structures, rooms and natural surroundings are beautiful and kept up extremely well so the environment is quite pleasant and relaxing ... and the hosts are attentive and full of personality which adds a warmth to the experience. Dining at the Inn is usually very good, both the breakfasts and suppers, but the chef disappointed on one of the meals this time. (The pot pie made to use up the leftover groceries before an end-of-the-year break was lacking ingredients and flavor and was not deserving of its cost.) We don't expect perfection and this will not deter us from visiting again. Cost of the dining, in general, though, is expensive ... as is the cost of a stay at the inn, especially in a cabin. The positives, still, far outweigh the negatives.

Very Relaxing!

4.4 on December 15, 2011

My husband and I stayed 2 nights for our honeymoon. We had a very relaxing time! We thought that we would miss the tv, since there wasn't one in the cabin, but we were able to relax and enjoy our time away! The food was very delicious, but expensive! Breakfast was included, and again very delicious! Overall, every thing was wonderful!

Innkeeper Response
Thanks for taking the time to let us know of your stay. May you both have a wonderful life together. Our best!

This is our favorite long weekend get away!

5 on December 10, 2011

We love Murphin Ridge and Thanksgiving was our 6th stay there. We are already planning our next getaway. It is perfect for relaxing, reading by the fire, walking the trails on the property and having great dinners and breakfasts. Sherry and Darryl are perfect hosts.

Innkeeper Response
This is the best way to start a rainy Wednesday! Thanks for the kind words and for taking the time to write them. I am keeping the Darryl part away from him.

- Sherry (innkeeper)


4.4 on December 05, 2011

My wife and I recently visited Murphin Ridge and spent the night in one of their cabins. The only thing wrong was that we did not have the time to stay longer. If you are a type A personallity it will take a little while to slow down and enjoy this place. Our cell phones did not have reception, there was no TV, no newspaper layed at your door etc. It truly enables you to slow your pace and enjoy one another and actually sit on the porch with a glass of wine and talk. The owners along with all the staff were great and treated us like they had known us for years. It is a little pricey when you throw in the couples massage, but it was well worth it. We will definitely be going back Chuck Middleton

Innkeeper Response
Thanks for taking the time to review our stay. Glad you enjoyed the real "Murphin". Hospitality Southwest Ohio style. Please do come back to the Ridge.

Exactly the break we needed...

4.8 on November 27, 2011

We LOVED Murphin Ridge, we needed to get away from things for 48 hrs and I can't imagine there is a better place within driving distance of our home than this Inn! The food was incredible, the scenery was lovely and peaceful, the cabins were luxurious. Thank you SO MUCH!

Innkeeper Response
You are more than welcome. And thank you for letting us know how much you enjoyed your stay. COME BACK TO THE RIDGE before you need to.

Celebrating our 50th Birthdays

4.0 on November 15, 2011

Our daughter gave my husband and I a night stay at Murphin Ridge Inn, for our 50th birthdays, which are a month apart. We arrived to a wonderful cabin, with a fireplace, whirlpool tub, cedar all around, it was so warm and comfy. We hiked in the crisp fall air, came back and sat by the fire pit, to unwind. Two cats came and joined us, hopped on our lap, purring, it was really nice, (plus they kept us warm!) Our dinner was delicious, and the guest house was very quaint. Our table was in front of the fireplace, which added ambiance to our evening. After returning to our cabin, we played checkers, a game we had not played since our children were young, it was fun to do something so familiar yet often forgotten. Our breakfast was hearty and yummy, and then off for another hike before we said goodbye. It was definitely a place we would like to return to, at least once per year.

Innkeeper Response
And we look forward to celebrating 102 years with you both. Thanks for taking the time to review your stay!

- Sherry (innkeeper)

Far from the madding crowd

4.2 on November 14, 2011

I'd been wanting to visit Murphin Ridge literally for years and finally was able to get there in November 2011. While it was the restaurant's reputation that most interested me, it turned out that the food was the least of the pleasures there. We stayed in a cabin, which was so wonderful, I'm sure it was worth the extra $ compared to a guest room. (The whirlpool and fireplace were highlights, but the whole experience was the height of comfort.) Dinner was good, but breakfast was outstanding. We will return, I hope, again and again!

Innkeeper Response
Thanks for taking the time to tell us of your experience. At any time, let us know how we can make your dining experience more memorable. Thanks!

- Sherry (innkeeper)


4.8 on November 14, 2011

We greatly enjoyed our stay at Murphin Inn. We arrived late, but the office in the main office/restaurant was open until 9:00. At check-in we were offered a cup of coffee and there were cookies waiting in our cabin. We enjoyed the fireplace in the spacious room. The next morning, the breakfast was delicious...fruit, muffins, eggs, ham, seasoned potatoes, yogurt, granola, juice and coffee. The breakfast room was so charming! The grounds were beautiful, with hiking trails available. The staff was friendly and gracious. We would definitely stay here again.

Innkeeper Response
Looking forward to breakfast again with you. Thanks so much for the kind review.

- Sherry (innkeeper)

Best ever!

5 on November 11, 2011

My husband and I truly had a relaxing time just was too short. We will definitely be back for another visit soon.

Great Getaway!

4.8 on November 11, 2011

My sisters and I were looking for a great place to go for some quality time together with a great atmosphere and wonderful food. We found it all at Murphin Ridge! It is so calm and peaceful, a great bonfire every evening, the staff are so much fun, and the food just fantastic! You won't go wrong staying here weather you are with friends or as a couple.

Innkeeper Response
Thanks! Come back anytime to the Ridge! Hope the calm stays with you all.

It's like being transported away to a beautiful place where everyone takes care of you.

5 on November 04, 2011

It's like being transported away to a magical place where every detail is taken care of for you. It's in pristine Amish country where it's peaceful and you can see a whole sky full of stars at night. We love the king cabins with the fireplaces, spa baths, little kitchenettes, and king sized beds. We love the food - everything is delicious. We love the service. We love the owners. If you've not been to Murphin Ridge Inn, you must go.

Innkeeper Response
We love that you loved your stay. Thank you for taking the time to let us know and for your very kind words. Come back to the Ridge.

An escape

It's an annual escape for my wife and I in celebration of our anniversary. A cabin in the woods, warm fire and an overall peaceful setting.

Innkeeper Response

Rest at its best!

5 on November 02, 2011

Our cabin couldn't have been any better. The atmosphere of the entire grounds lent itself to complete relaxation. The innkeepers were welcoming and generous with their suggestions. The dining experience was terrific with fresh choices each day. Our time at Murphin Ridge was just what we needed.

3.4 on November 01, 2011

A very good experience, although we wish the weather had been better so that we could have taken advantage of walking trails, fall scenery and campfire socializing. Alas, it was rainy & cold for our entire stay. If only the innkeepers could control the weather!

Innkeeper Response
Would that we could. Come back when the sun shines. Thanks for taking the time to let us know of your Murphin experience.

- Sherry (innkeeper)


4.8 on October 31, 2011

Our stay at Murphin Ridge was beyond amazing! What a great way to celebrate our anniversary - the perfect spot to reconnect and fall in love all over again! The surroundings are beautiful, calm and peaceful and the trails on the Inn property are wonderful. It's also close to really great hiking areas and antique and Amish stores. However, the best part for me was probably the food - as a vegan, it's hard for me to eat out. I usually end up with a salad. However, when I made Sherry aware of my dietary needs, she and Chef went ABOVE and BEYOND my expectations, making me some of the most delicious vegan meals I have ever tasted. That, to me, is the epitome of hospitality. Thank you for making our anniversary getaway so amazing and perfect - we cannot wait to return year after year!! -Alicyn & Tory Fischetti

Quaint and quiet Murphin Ridge

Our stay was amazing. The food was exceptional and the easy atmosphere made our stay so relaxing. I would love to visit each season. Foggy Bottom pancakes were the best I've ever eaten.

We've already booked our weekend for 2012!

There's no place like Murphin Ridge--a beautiful, intimate place to get away from the world and enjoy great food and wine in the Amish countryside.

We were thrilled with the cottage! The architecture of the building was outstanding! Everything had been beautifully planned and it all worked for us. The owners did not miss a thing. All we had to do was enjoy! The food was exceptional. The very best chicken we had ever eaten! The staff was all gracious and helpful from the moment we walked in to register. We, or family members will visit again.

Just What We Needed

5 on October 19, 2011

This was our third time at Murphin Ridge and it won't be our last. We stay in the cabins and they have everything we need to reconnect with each other and disconnect from the outside world. We highly recommend Murohin Ridge to all our friends and even sent our daughter and son-in-law there on for a short honeymoon.

Innkeeper Response
The nicest complement is sending loved ones to us! Thank you! I am glad that Murphin is "just what we needed"! See you the next time you are on the Ridge.

Murphin Ridge Review

5 on October 15, 2011

My wife, 2 young boys, & I recently had the privilege of staying at the reknowned Murphin Ridge Inn. It truly blew us away. The cabin we stayed in was immaculate & beautifully constructed. The natural setting was incredibly relaxing & serene. The meals were expertly designed & executed, providing a culinary experience that can not be offered locally otherwise. We certainly plan to stay there again when we are able to leave on vacation from Chicago.

Innkeeper Response
We are looking forward to your return visit. Thanks so much for the kind words. Stay away from the cold and wind in Chicago, but enjoy all that the Windy City has to offer.

The only place to stay!

5 on October 10, 2011

Looking for the ultimate "Inn" experience? Murphins Ridge is it! From the soup and salad to the dessert, the food was out of this world! The rooms and cabins (I had relatives stay in two of the cabins) were super clean and very comfortable. The Innkeepers Sherry and Darryl were outstanding and made us feel like lifelong friends after just 5 minutes, you can tell they really love their role as Innkeepers and take pride in everything they do. I normally don't do surveys or leave feedback but because of my Murphin Ridge experience I felt compelled. Darryl, I loved our breakfast banter, see you next year!

Innkeeper Response
Thanks so much! I passed your review on to the staff who deserves much of the credit for Murphin Ridge. And since you enjoyed Darryl so much, he is your parting gift. Thank you for making an exception and doing this review. We are all smiling. Yea! Come back to the Ridge before next year!

The Best of the Best

4.8 on October 04, 2011

My wife and I are regular visitors to the USA, and have stayed in many hundreds of B&B accommodations across 48 States over the past 20 years. Murphin Ridge Inn was undoubtedly one of the best B&B's we have ever stayed in. The location is quite exquisite, the grounds extensive, the hosts genial & hospitable, the accommodation (we stayed in My Cabin for 5 nights) was wonderful - clean, light, airy and quiet. Sherry & Darryl made us feel entirely at home - nothing was too much trouble. Would not hesitate to stay here again if in the area.

Innkeeper Response
Thank you so much! We loved having you as well. We are thrilled that you hold us among the "best". We appreciate you taking the time to let others know how much you enjoyed your stay at Murphin. COME BACK!

Unforgettable experience - must stay!

4.6 on September 17, 2011

We had our family reunion at Murphin Ridge, and I cannot give them enough kudos. The service was WAY beyond expectations, and the ambiance of both the guest rooms and the cabins is something you just have to experience to fully appreciate. Everyone in my family is now planning on returning at some point in the future. This is out of the way in a remote section of Southern Ohio, but worth the effort to make your way there!

Innkeeper Response
Thanks so much! I will pass your comments on to our staff who all work diligently to make your stay a grand one! Do come back and bring the whole bunch of you!

- Sherry (innkeeper)

Loved it all!

My husband and I simply needed to get away for a long weekend together. We wanted to be in nature yet be pampered a little. We wanted upscale food in a casual setting. We wanted a relaxing escape. Murphin Ridge Inn delivered in every way.

Innkeeper Response
You got the best of what we have to offer. Thank you! We all hope Murphin stays with you awhile even though you are back to "life"! Please come back for a Murphin fix when you can.

Hill sisters visit to Murphin Ridge

5 on September 17, 2011

All 6 of us gathered for two nights at Murphin Ridge. From all around the world and close by we came to carve out a bit of time for just the 6 of us. It was a fantastic time ! Swimmiming in the pool, relaxing in the calming rooms, sitting on the rockers, looking into the shooting stars while at the fire: all was lovely and relaxing for us ! The food is the best- as good as we can make at home and we are serious gardeners, cooks, bakers !! We had such tasty food at every meal- thank you for this gift of time and pleasure to share. Hoping to return...

Innkeeper Response
I don't know how I missed this review. Especially since it was so kind. I am sorry. Please do return, and bring a covered dish from home! Just kidding of course. Do come back and THANK YOU!

- Sherry (innkeeper)

Another wonderful visit to Murphin Ridge!

4.6 on September 11, 2011

This was a once/twice a year visit to Murphin Ridge that we enjoy for "R and R". We have treated ourselves for many years--the entire time that Sherry and Darryl have been the innkeepers. It always amazes us that they have been able to maintain and exceed our expectations year after year. It's wonderful to have a special place to visit.

Innkeeper Response
Thanks! You make us very happy! Knowing that you enjoyed your stay is why we do what you do. Thanks for sharing with us!

- Sherry (innkeeper)

Heaven on earth....

4.8 on September 09, 2011

I recently had the pleasure of visiting Murphin Ridge Inn for the first time with my sister for our annual sister's getaway. We enjoyed lounging in the pool, hiking the wooded trails, playing Scrabble on the porch, and getting a relaxing massage in our cabin. Breakfast was absolutely delicious, and the view of the birds at the feeders was nice too. I will recommend Murphin Ridge to my friends and family. Looking forward to planning my next trip back too.

Innkeeper Response
You did Murphin the way it was meant to be enjoyed. Thanks so much. Come back to the Ridge anytime you need a fix!

- Sherry (innkeeper)

always excellent

5 on September 09, 2011

We visit Murphin Ridge Inn frequently because they excel at everything. If I had to pick one aspect to highlight it would be the people. We consider the owners and staff our friends. Everyone feels welcomed and your total enjoyment of your time at the inn is always their utmost priority.

Innkeeper Response
We are smiling! This is what we strive for in every aspect of innkeeping. We think hospitality is the hallmark of being an innkeeper! Thanks so much for your noticing, enjoying and appreciating all of us! Come back SOON!

Another Glorious Stay on the Ridge

5 on September 08, 2011

We made a last minute decision to spend Labor Day Sunday night at Murphin Ridge. This was our first stay in an Inn room as we've spent many other nights in the wonderful King cabins. The room was very nice and we might have liked the bathroom a little better in the room than at the cabins. We were welcomed graciously by all the staff. Sunday night's dinner buffet was wonderful and the next morning's breakfast was terrific. We spent a wonderful, quiet weekend that was a great recharge for the week ahead. Murphin Ridge is a part of our lives and hearts and we stay as often as we can.

Innkeeper Response
Thanks so much for taking the time to tell us of your stay. Your kind words are music to our ears. Knowing we are in your "lives and hearts" is an awsome responsibility and the staff takes the responsibility seriiously, but with joy. See you on the Ridge again soon!

- Sherry (innkeeper)

Secluded, romantic retreat for couples!

4.4 on September 08, 2011

The food was superlative, every bite delicious and plentiful!! The entire place was very peaceful and quiet. It's the perfect place to get away and spend time alone with a loved one and capture the feeling of togetherness and the reason why you fell in love.

Innkeeper Response
We had an elderly guest who took the time to tell a young honeymooning couple, "remember why you two love one another". It seems you get that now! On the not two happy days, (hope they don't come often) remember... and remember the Ridge. Thanks so much for the kind review.

- Sherry (innkeeper)

Our B&B Getaway

4.4 on September 05, 2011

This overnight stay was a surprise for my wife on our first anniversary. It worked! She was so surprised and pleased that she shed tears - of joy! The cabin, the flowers in the room, the presents I gave her were over the top, she said. We also enjoyed the two-sided fireplace, the whirlpool tub and the large shower. The furnishings were beautiful too! We found nothing wrong with the Inn and have recommended it to our friends.

Innkeeper Response
Yea! Your recommendations are our best reviews. Thanks so much and do come back to the Ridge. And congratulations on pulling off the surprise.

In Touch with Serenity

4.0 on September 02, 2011

The local was extremely serene and restful, but if you are addicted to TV it may not be the local for you. The staff was friendly and helpful, especially the young man in charge of the front desk. The food was well prepared and its presentation attractive. I especially appreciated the availabiity at all times. My wife and I have fallen in love with Murphin Ridge Inn.

Innkeeper Response
Thanks for telling us of your experiences on the Ridge. We appreciate your time. "Falling in love" with the Ridge is easy we think. We hope you remember the Ridge and each other always.

The Gift of Quiet, Family, and great Hospitality

5 on September 02, 2011

My husband and I spent quite a few nights in the Inn and loved coming back each time. Last weekend I had the joy of coming with my five adult children for the weekend. What a special memory I will always have of this fantastic gathering. The food was wonderful, the service beyond expectation, and the memories will last a lifetime. Thank you all. My daughter said she felt this was the most beautiful place other then the tropics that she had ever been. I believe I agree. For me it was returning to the place I was born, the place my deceased husband and I so loved, and the joy of sharing all with my children. How special.

Innkeeper Response
Wow! Our hearts are full of gratitude! We are so pleased that you all had a "Murphin Experience". We hope it lingers awhile, and you come back soon.

An Amazing Experience

4.8 on September 01, 2011

My wife, daughter, and I spent 2 nights at Murphin Ridge Inn at the close of summer. We had been there before and have always loved it. This time, we parked the car on arrival and let it sit until time to depart. The weather was picture perfect. We enjoyed sitting on the porch, hiking the trails, chatting with other guests, and eating delicious food. Wow.

Luxury in the woods

4.4 on August 31, 2011

This was a great place for our 32nd anniversary. We stayed one night but should have stayed at least one more. We will definately return. The dinner was wonderful, but the breakfast was to die for. Everything was the best that one could expect and more. We enjoyed it so much my wife and her coworkers actually got a gift certificate for a friend. I know they will love the place.

Innkeeper Response
We will get up and cook a "to die for" breakfast anytime. Thanks for the kind words and do come back and stay longer. See you on the Ridge.

- Sherry (innkeeper)

Third anniversary stay

4.0 on August 30, 2011

My husband and I got engaged at the inn and also stayed there after we got married, both times in a cabin. We visited again for our third anniversary with our young son. The innkeepers went out of their way to accommodate our needs, bringing dinner to our cabin the first night and keeping our son entertained while we enjoyed an amazing meal in the restaurant the following night. We will definitely return.

Innkeeper Response
Many thanks! It is a pleasure to make your stay a memorable one. Thanks for the kind words. Come back for the fourth anniversary! Or sooner!

- Sherry (innkeeper)

We love this place!!

Put this place on your bucket list....seriously.

5 on August 22, 2011

Staying here with my wife for our 13th wedding anniversary at the beginning of the August was the absolutely best anniversary that we had spent together and we have the Murphin Ridge Inn to thank. Words cannot express how Sherry and Darryl have made this place such a haven for relaxation and solitude. The cottages are so perfect to stay in and the food was absolutely unbeliveable. Our sincerest thanks to them for their attention to detail and for making sure that we'll be back next year. Thank you again.

Innkeeper Response
We will read your review again as we go to sleep. It makes for sweet dreams! Thank you. All of us appreciate the kindness in letting us know about your stay. Come back soon. Good night!

A lovely retreat in Amish Country

3.4 on August 17, 2011

Murphin Ridge is a delightful respite from an otherwise busy world from which most of us seek to escape. And escape you can if a pastoral setting complete with the sights and sounds of nature all around, accomodations to please the most discriminating traveler; delightful cuisine in a Farm to Table approach; all made more enjoyable by an endearing, if not cantankerous inn-keeper. It's on my list of places to which I look forward returning.

Innkeeper Response
Darryl and I have been married for 46 years. I hope he was the cantankerous inn-keeper I know and love, and that it was not me! Come back anytime you need a little more "Murphin" Thanks for taking the time to respond. We love to hear from our guests.

- Sherry (innkeeper)

loved it all, great experience

5 on August 15, 2011

The cabin was just what we needed a place to relax ,loved the front porch. All the food was wonderful,you can taste the freshness, the scenery was breathtaking. The little touches were great. Can't wait to go back, and experience each season.

Innkeeper Response
I don't think it could get better. THANKS so much for the very kind words. We are so glad you got what you needed. We hope Murphin lingers with you a good while. Come back whenever you need to.

Quiet Weekend at Murphin Ridge

4.4 on August 14, 2011

My wife and I shared a quiet weekend at Murphin Ridge - doing a bit of hiking, but mostly relaxing and enjoying the wonderful food prepared by the kind folks at Murphin Ridge. It is a great place to get away and I would recommend it highly for anyone hoping to get away for a quiet and peaceful stay.

Innkeeper Response
Thanks for the very kind response. We are glad you got the best we have. Peace, quiet, nature, great food. Come back again and again.

- Sherry (innkeeper)


5 on August 13, 2011

With only one day to spend away from our jobs, this was the perfect place to stay. The attention to detail was unbelivable, the owners made sure you feel right at home. Delicious food, atmosphere, and views. We even had a double rainbow to enjoy! Look forward to going back for another stay.

Innkeeper Response
We can't take credit for the rainbow. But your participation in the Murphin experience is apparent. Thanks for enjoying what we enjoy doing. See you on the Ridge.

Amazing B&B/Inn - top of the list

4.8 on August 07, 2011

My wife and I just had the pleasure of celebrating our 5th wedding anniversary at the Murphin Ridge Inn. The experience far exceeded our expectations and quickly moved into a tie at the top of our list for favorite B&B/Inn. It was the perfect blend of historic farmhouse, cozy log cabin and mouth-watering farm-to-table culinary creations. The cabins have been eloquently designed to blend rustic appearance with modern architecture, amenities and comfort. Almost more impressive than the sunken whirlpool tub, two-person rain shower, vast windows and exposed beams and the double sided fireplace, was the immaculate cleanliness of the cabin. I have honestly never stayed in a cabin that didn’t have at least one cobweb. Before drifting off to sleep for my afternoon nap, I stared hard at the ceiling, but never located even one remnant of cabin critters. Other small pleasures about the cabin included a checker board painted on the table, a black hand towel for makeup removal, comfortable bed and pillows, coffee mugs and wine glasses (both came in handy) and well thought out placement of lighting controls and dimmers. Owners Sherry and Darryl McKenney go out of their way to meet and spend time with every guest. Their exceptional hospitality and attention to every small detail is the obvious cornerstone of success that makes Murphin Ridge so well rated and visited. A testament of this success is the number of return visitors that proudly boast the number of return stays that each trip marks. While we sheepishly confessed our “newbie” exposure to Murphin Ridge, we are already looking forward to progressing to the classification of “alumni” for our next visit. After only being home 6 hours, we are already looking for dates on the calendar to return to Murphin Ridge Inn.

Innkeeper Response
Thanks so much for all the kind words. You noticed all the little details that we work hard at to help your stay be the best possible. Thank you, thank you. Our staff is the best and we thank you for noticing. Come back so you will get alumni status soon.

Wonderful , relaxing stay at Murphin Ridge Inn

3.6 on August 06, 2011

Our stay was most relaxing and peaceful, enhanced by the slow pace of the surrounding Amish neighbors, the gardens of flowers and birds, the swimming pool, the shuffleboard court, the friendly but unobtrusive staff. the cofort and cleanliness of the rooms, and the general ambiance of the Inn itself. While the breakfasts were good, We were disappointed in the quality and price of our first dinner meal as well as the lack of alternative dining sites within the area.

Innkeeper Response
Thanks for letting us know of your experience at Murphin.If you would share with us your disappointment in the dining experience it would be helpful to us. We are anxious to make each guest's experience a great one. Thanks so much for your input. Do come back to the Ridge.

- Sherry (innkeeper)

What a Trip

4.8 on August 05, 2011

This was our first trip to Murphin Ridge and we didn't know what to expect. However, we LOVED our experience. This is the kind of trip that we were searching for...a time to relax, enjoy the natural surrounds, and spend time together. Beyond that, the food and the innkeepers were AMAZING!!! They knew us by name, helped us plan our day, and offered any assistance we needed. We will CERTAINLY recommend this to our family and WE WILL RETURN!!!

Innkeeper Response
We LOVE that you loved your visit. Wish I knew who wrote this so I could say thanks using your name. In any case, come back to the Ridge very very soon. THANKS!

Great inn, wonderful staff

Lovely Murphin Ridge Inn

4.6 on August 02, 2011

My husband & I stayed at the Inn for our 13th anniversary. It's only about an hours drive from our home, but it's a world away. It's peaceful and calming. Check in was quick and easy. Our room was immaculate. We had a view of the fields. The mattress was a little firm for my liking. Or, it could have been that I sometimes don't sleep well the first night away from home. Since it was mid 90's, we decided to enjoy the pool. It was clean & refreshing. We made reservations for dinner & it was SOOOOOOO good. It was really a splurge for us, but it was really worth it. Breakfast was fantastic too. The Inn keepers were awesome. So, my only negative was the mattress. However, I would NOT let that stop me from staying there again. Actually, before we left, we were already talking about the "next time" we come. Great place to get away!!!

Innkeeper Response
Thanks for the very nice review and the information about your mattress. The best complement is that you are coming back.

- Sherry (innkeeper)

anniversary celebration

5 on July 31, 2011

We were amazed that such a piece of heaven could exsist in the southern hills of Ohio. The staff were friendly, helpful and entertaining at times. The food measures up to a five star restaurant, needless to say we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and are looking forward to a return trip soon.

Innkeeper Response
Thank you for taking the time to share your experience at the Inn. We are so happy you enjoyed everything and that you are coming back.

- Sherry (innkeeper)

Great place to get away

4.4 on July 31, 2011

My husband and I stayed in the guest house and loved it. The room was great with an excellent view. We watched deer roam the area all throughout the day! The service was great; very friendly and inviting. The food was amazing, we ate breakfast and dinner there for two days and came home fat and happy. The grounds are extremely peaceful and beautiful. We left the grounds to try to do some touristy things but for the most part the immediate Amish shops and hiking tails nearby are all that are worth seeing (better to enjoy the grounds and nearby Amish communities). We plan on coming back to Murphin someday and staying in one of the cabins. We can't wait!

Innkeeper Response
Thanks so much for the very kind words. We want you to come back and enjoy a cabin too.

- Sherry (innkeeper)

Very relaxing

4.2 on July 31, 2011

Picturesque, relaxing and extremely nice hosts. The inn's food, prepared from local sources, was excellent. If the ac in our rooms wasn't so loud, it would have been perfect.

Innkeeper Response
Thanks so much. We will work on the AC so your next Murphin experience will be just right. Thanks!

Best place ever !!!!!!!

5 on July 28, 2011

My wife and I spent three wonderful nights at Murphin and it couldn't have been better. Sherry and Darryl were wonderful and their staff was the same. Levi and Candice took such good care of us and we are already planning our next trip back. The grounds are beautiful and well kept. The cabin was pure heaven from the fireplace, two person shower and two person jacuzzi. The food at the dining room was 5 star all the way. Thank you Sherry and Darryl for a wonderful long weekend. Vicki and Tom Kelly

Innkeeper Response
Many thanks for the standing ovation. You can imagine how much this means to all of us. Come back before the Murphin Memories fade. THANKS!

Great Escape

4.4 on July 27, 2011

As a return customer, we again loved our stay at Murphin Ridge. The area is so peaceful, the food is wonderful & Sherry & Darryl are such pleasant hosts. We try to support locally owned businesses rather than chains whenever possible so we can continue to enjoy the uniqueness they provide.

Quite sisterly time

4.8 on July 25, 2011

My sister and I enjoyed the quite country time there. We went for a walk on one of the trails and looked at all the wild flowers, while watching out for the poison ivy. The food was amazing. I recommend Murphin Ridge Inn totally.

You certainly got all that is Murphin. Thanks and come back soon!

Fantastic Time at Murphin Ridge

5 on July 25, 2011

My stay included myself, my mother and my 2 sisters. What was an awesome getaway for us, seemed to be a romantic place for couples. Every one at the Inn was spectacular. The dinner was fabulous and our room was exceptionally clean and tidy. We were impressed when we arrived and disappointed when we had to leave. Oh! And breakfast was over the top yummy.

Innkeeper Response
You are wonderful. Your comments are really appreciated. Our entire staff applauded when I read this to them. Thank you and do come back soon.

- Sherry (innkeeper)

Perfect pre-baby get a way

4.8 on July 22, 2011

Quiet, friendly, comfortable, breakfast was really fun to just be served the chefs choice (always really friendly), dinners were gourmet, the pool was really useful as we don't belong to one at home. I could go on and on.

Innkeeper Response
Do go on and on. We are thrilled. Thank you and come back so we can do it all over again.

Peaceful paradise!

5 on July 14, 2011

We were married on 7/9/11. We chose Murphin Ridge Inn Cabin as a romantic, close by honeymoon spot. Our expectations were exceeded when we arrived - the cabin was beautiful. At first we were surprised there was no T.V., but it turned out to be a great thing - it gave us time to do other things: play cards, talk and get to know one another better. We LOVED the food and the hammock. We loved walking on the trails and enjoying the beautiful surroundings. Thank you so very much for such a wonderful place. We will be recommending this all friends and family.

Innkeeper Response
We hope your lives together is a continual honeymoon. Enjoy each other and come back to renew these moments. Thanks so much for the kind words1

- Sherry (innkeeper)

Simply wonderful in every way.

4.8 on July 11, 2011

Excellence in every detail. Beautiful property with trails through fields and woods. Cabins are "luxury cottages." Food was of the highest quality. Personalized and warm hospitality of the owners was refreshing and added to our positice exerience. This is the perfect natural retreat setting, escaping from noise, television, and other complexities of life. The only way it could have been better is if we had stayerd longer!

Innkeeper Response
Thank you! You have enjoyed the essence of Murphin and we are pleased that you did. Come back and do stay longer.

Farm to Table experience

4.6 on July 11, 2011

This is a great place for a relaxing and quiet stay. This is ideal if you need a time-out from the pressures of everyday life. They offer Farm to Table weekends where local and home-grown food is served. Remote location. Our stay exceeded our expectations, we can't say enough. Convenient access to Amish shopping and culture, and hiking. Lovely short hikes are offered on site. Food was incredible, service superb, and the hosts were so friendly and welcoming. The grounds & rooms were immaculate, clean, and very well kept. Try scheduling massage on-site in a cabin, it was glorious!

Innkeeper Response
Your review is overwhelming! Darryl and I think we will go to the Ridge sometime. Kidding of course! Thank you so much. Come back for more Murphin anytime.

Absolutely amazing!

5 on July 07, 2011

We stayed at Murphin Ridge for our honeymoon (July 1-4, 2011) in one of the cabins and we were totally blown away. The pictures on the website do not do Inn justice- you really must see it in person because it is amazing. Our cabin was cozy, very clean, and beautiful. Dinner at the dining house is spectacular, and every morning my husband and I couldn't wait to see what was for breakfast. I would definitely recommend Murphin Ridge Inn to anyone and we will definitely be staying there again.

Innkeeper Response
You are "amazing" for taking the time to let us know of your Murphin experience. Thank you! See you on the Ridge.

A Don't Miss

5 on July 07, 2011

From the warm, inviting welcome to the last morsel of a scrumptious breakfast before departure, this inn exceeded our expectations -- lovely and comfortable accommodations, mouth-watering food, beautiful setting, fun and nostalgic activities. If you're in southern Ohio, this is one inn you don't want to miss!

We loved the simplicity of Murphin Ridge. We stayed in a cabin and loved the rustic feel of it. The grounds around it were fabulous and the wonderful gardens. Every one there was very pleasant and accommodating. The Innkeepers were very gracious. We would definitely come again and recommend it to others.

Innkeeper Response
Thanks so much! Come back for another anniversary and anytime.

The garden setting for dinner was beautiful and quiet. The entree was one of the best meals I ever ate, and the server was friendly without being intrusive. The lodge room was very clean and nicely decorated with reproduction antiques. A super week-end stay!

Weekend Away

5 on June 22, 2011

Everything was first rate as always. We have been guests for 10 years and enjoy every minute of our stays. The cabin is wonderful, quiet and clean. As always, breakfast was great and very hearty. The new chef's food was absolutely fabulous. He is very talented for being so young. All in all a wonderful get away.

Innkeeper Response
We must be doing something right to keep you satisfied for 10 years of Murphin memories. We are so glad that we continue to please. -- I will let Chef Brad know that you really enjoyed his food, though I may leave out the "so young and talented" bit. We wouldn't want him to get an ego complex. -- Best Wishes and Good Health to you. See you on the Ridge again soon.

A beautiful place

4.8 on June 17, 2011

We loved this Inn. The rooms are immaculate and cozy. The innkeepers, Sherry and Darryl, are extremely attentive to every whim and need. Every detail has been well thought out down to the umbrella tucked in the closet and stacks of wood for the outside fire pit. We were there to celebrate our very happy engagement and the completion of (my) newly published book. When we mentioned the book to Sherry and Darryl (A CINCINNATI PRIVATE EYE PROTECTING PRINCESS DI: A Fascinating Footnote In History) they were genuinely interested in hearing about it. Sherry has a great cookbook, too! The surrounding Amish community is gorgeous and profound. Everything at the Inn was perfect! We would go back.

Innkeeper Response
Not only are we interested in your book, we would love to read it. Thanks for the good words. We care about our guests in so many ways.

The Best!

5 on June 15, 2011

My husband and I celebrated our 5th anniversary with a 2-night stay at Murphin Ridge Inn. We were pampered the entire time! The food (we ate two dinners, two breakfasts, and ordered box lunches one day as well) was terrific. I truly felt like I was in California with the sophisticated flavors and delicious combinations of home-grown produce and locally raised meat. Our cabin in the woods was gorgeous and oh so clean, and came with free water bottles, cookies, tea, and coffee. In addition, we had ordered a wine, cheese, and fruit tray, which was exquisite. We took part in all the amenities, playing tennis on a newly renovated court, basketball, croquet, shuffleboard, board games in our cabin and the guesthouse common room, and taking a hike on well-marked trails. We also explored Amish country and went to a few local stores. I highly recommend Murphin Ridge Inn for anyone wanting a peaceful and fabulous getaway!

Innkeeper Response
You are the "best" for all the kind words. We love that you enjoyed everything that Murphin Ridge is. You "got" it! Thanks for letting us know and come back for a refresher anytime.

I was looking for a get-away tucked away from the rest of the world and I found what I was looking for. Down one-lane roads is an amazing farm with great cabins, common spaces, and amazing food. They make you feel welcome right away like they have known you your entire life. Amazing get-away spot; I will definitely be returning.

Our favorite little cabin in the woods!

5 on June 09, 2011

The cabin was intimate and cozy, perfect for a few warm stormy days in May without the boys! We love Sherry and Darryl and their warm comfortable hospitality. The food is consistently amazing, and the Spring fruit and veggies were amazing. They get all the small touches right. Definitely our go-to getaway!

Innkeeper Response
You found in Murphin what we hope to deliver. Thanks so much!

A great place to stay away from the hustle of todays world. We visited the Serpentine Mound and then came to Murphin Ridge. An early morning walk down the wooded paths prepared us for a wonderful breakfast.

Memories forever

5 on June 04, 2011

My husband and I spent the night at Murphin Ridge following my mother's funeral in a nearby town. It was a perfect place to be during that time. Beauty, serenity and quiet dinner. Followed by a glass of wine while taking a tearful breath by the evening fire under the stars. Darryl and Sherry dash around lovingly and joyfully serving everyone's need with a pep in their step that tells you they love what they do. I will always remember this stay at Murphin Ridge. At a time of sorrow, being there was a gift to my soul. Thank you. Connie Greene

Our Stay at Murphin Ridge

The cabin was extraordinarily clean. The food was some of the best I've ever tasted! We enjoyed visiting the Miller's furniture store, bakery and grocery, all just minutes away from Murphin Ridge.

We love to stay in the private and beautifully crafted cabins. Our two night stay was so relaxing. We enjoyed a delicious breakfast, tasty boxed lunch, and of course, Murphin Ridge's dinner! YUM! Candace was especially helpful and went out of her way to be sure our needs were accommodated. She brewed an evening pot of coffee and met us on the porch with two fresh cups! She even moved a large (and happily noisy) group into a different dining room so that my husband and I could have a quiet dinner. We can't wait to go back!

Innkeeper Response
Thanks for noticing that we care about our guests. We can't wait to see you again on the Ridge.

Best B&B in Ohio

5 on May 28, 2011

Awesome get away just 1 1/2 hrs from Cincinnati in the heart of Amish community. Sherry and Darryl make you feel right at home and never stopped attending to every detail to make this the best stay possible. From roses and champagne in the room for our 25th anniversary to gourmet popcorn by the bond fire. The food was amazing and staff wonderful. The only disappointment was my mobile phone worked fine keeping me in touch with work, ha! Looking forward to our next anniversary and chance to visit Murphin Ridge Inn again! Tom & Dana

Innkeeper Response
Wow! The best is that you enjoyed yourselves. Thanks for the great review. See you both on the Ridge.

My experience at the Murphin Ridge Inn was nothing short of heavenly. The food was expensive but you absolutely get more than you pay for. The rooms are also a bit pricey, but the accommodations were relaxing and welcoming. This was the perfect place for a weekend away and I will be returning again, and hopefully soon!

Innkeeper Response
Thank you for your kind review. We appreciate you taking the time to tell us of your experience at the Ridge. Come again and again and again. You had the experience we strive for. See you on the Ridge.

Hope to be back again soon

5 on May 12, 2011

My husband and I stayed in the "Celebration" cabin for our anniversary. It was, without a doubt, the most relaxing time we've had in years. We loved the cabin -- the fresh cut flowers, the comfy chairs, the cozy fireplace -- everything was perfect. And the food! Breakfast was a delightful surprise both mornings -- orange-kissed french toast one day and the fluffiest and most delicious scrambled eggs I've ever had with bacon on the second morning. Darryl, Sherri, and the rest of the staff really go out of their way to make everything wonderful, and they succeed every time. We hope we can come back again soon.

Innkeeper Response
Wow, thanks for the wonderful review. We sincerely hope the memories you made at Murphin linger with you and pop up when you most need them. See you soon on the Ridge.

- Sherry (innkeeper)

Perfect weekend getaway even if the weather isn't perfect!

5 on May 12, 2011

My, what a rainy spring it has been. Fortunately, this in no way diminshes a visit to the Murphin Ridge Inn. Between the cozy gas fireplaces, the sumptuous linens, the flavorful meals and the strategically placed umbrellas a relaxing, restful weekend can be had despite a drizzle or two!

Innkeeper Response
Your review tells us that a rainy day for you turns into a cozy day, when you get a lemon you make lemonade and a glass is always half full. How fortunate you are and how happy we are that you were our guest. Thanks so much for the kind words.

Beautiful and comfortable place to stay

5 on May 04, 2011

Murphin Ridge Inn is very clean, beautiful, and serene place to unwind. The food served is outstanding on its own but the Inn Keepers went way above and and beyond the call of duty to accomodate my unique dietary needs by serving some of the best diabetic friendly food I have ever eaten. My husband and I highly recomend both the Inn and the Restaurant.

Innkeeper Response
Your appreciation for all of us at Murphin is MUCH APPRECIATED! We all work to please so that you will come back to the Ridge. Many thanks!

This is our 3rd stay at Murphin Ridge and we could not have been more pleased. It is one of our favorite places to be. The food is remarkable and the quiet, peaceful atmosphere is what the Ridge is all about for us. Thank you to everyone, we'll see you in the Fall.

Innkeeper Response
The thanks should go to you and all of our other wonderful guests. Good to hear that you enjoy the tranquility of the Ridge as much as we do. They may say "third time is the charm," but here's to the "fourth" and many more. See you this Fall!

wonderful stay

4.2 on April 17, 2011

everything was wonderful about Murphin ridge. the cabin was great. I thought it was expensive especially the dinner. $25.00 a person before you add a glass of wine was high. the food tasted great but you did not get enough.

Innkeeper Response
While we are very glad that you enjoyed your time with us on the Ridge, we are sorry that your dinner did not meet your expectations. We hope that you do come back - we would be happy to have you speak with our Chef to create a dining experience that would knock your socks off. Until then, best wishes and safe travels to you both.

Absolutely wonderful! Murphin Ridge Inn is the perfect place to get away and truly relax. The cabin was extremely clean and comfortable. The surrounding was so peaceful it was easy to forget the hectic day to day routines we had left behind. We were able to relax, reconnect and rejuvenate. Sherry and Darryl are perfect hosts. The entire staff is friendly and welcoming. Everyone makes you feel completely at home in this little slice of heaven. Can't say enough good things about our stay. We are already planning our return visit.

A Piece of Heaven

5 on April 12, 2011

If you are all about relaxing and getting away from the hassles of life, this is the place to come. Starry nights, rocking chairs, cozy surround fireplaces and even an afternoon treat make this a memorable experience. It has become a yearly event for us and I hope it continues. The chef prepares exquisite taste treats- his soups are divine! Words just do not do justice to the beauty and tranquility of this getaway.

Innkeeper Response
No need for words, we actually prefer a hearty "mmmm" at the dinner table or the relaxing "aahhs" of our guests by the firepit. -- Come see us on the Ridge again soon. Our gardens are getting into gear soon, who knows what Chef will come up with next!

A wonderful weekend getaway...

5 on April 08, 2011

I never rate things "outstanding"; however, that is exactly how I would describe our weekend. My husband and I haven't "gotten away" since our honeymoon 9 years ago. Grad school, work, 2 wonderful kids, and life have sort of gotten in the way. But, the weekend we spent at Murphin Ridge was the perfect way for us to reconnect and just be a couple. The cabin we stayed in, Encore, was fabulous. The cleanliness, coziness, food, and service were superb. I whole heartedly recommend Murphin Ridge Inn to all couples needing to spend time together. We will be back for our anniversary in August! Thanks so much to the proprietors and staff at Murphin Ridge Inn.

Innkeeper Response
Congrats!! We are very glad that our "Murphin Magic" gave you the opportunity to reflect and re-charge. Enjoy your Spring and Summer - See you in August!

Individual cabins create a wonderful space for a quiet, relaxing retreat. Beautiful setting. No television is a definite plus. (available in the common area if you have to have it- along with Keurig!). All the staff are warm, personal, and friendly. Food is fantastic! This was our 2nd visit -and we will be back!

Innkeeper Response
Thank you for your kind words. We are glad you had such a good time. Come back soon to try the new Spring Menu! The gardens are almost ready - nothing like fresh-picked asparagus... Ps. The TV & Keurig got some extra attention through March Madness, but everyone was able to share the remote without incident.

Can't say enough about this truly unique experience at Murphin Ridge! The Innskeepers and staff are very friendly and accommodating, we felt welcomed and cared for. The cabin was spectacular! Beautiful, clean and well maintained. We enjoyed all phases of sunlight pouring in throughout the day, the whirlpool tub coupled with the fireplace made it easy to unwind and the bed is luxurious comfort. The Dining House offers an intimate dinner experience serving a Chef prepared meal with a lovely presentation. The Murphin Breakfasts are by far our favorite! The location is peaceful, quiet and the perfect place for romance and relaxing together. We look forward to another stay!

I decided to surprise my wife with a short overnight stay in the country for her birthday and valentines day. We had eaten at the Murphin Inn before but had never styed there, so I thought I would like to try it. As it turned out it was better than I had expected. The cabins were nicely appointed, the food was excellent and the inn keepers and staff exceeding friendly and helpful. It is not the place to go if you don't enjoy being with yourself or you spouse. The area and the inn don't afford a lot of nightlife or non-participatory excitement, but if love a simple walk in the woods, some good food, watching the stars, sitting around a warm campfire or relaxing in a two person jacuzzi with a glass of bubbly this is the place for you.

Innkeeper Response
Sounds like you "got" Murphin. Thanks for appreciating all that is the Ridge and for letting us know. See you back again soon. Thanks!

Valentine's Day Weekend at Murphin Ridge Inn

4.4 on February 27, 2011

We were given a gift certificate from some of our very close friends who knew that we were "foodies" to use whenever we decided, for a visit the Murphin Ridge Inn because they knew the scope and quality of the menu and wine list. We decided to visit the Inn on the weekend just before Valetine's Day and we stayed in the large lodge rather than one of the cabins. The room was spacious, immaculate and decorated with beautiful wood furniture.The bed was a trundle bed so it sat very high off the floor and this was great for me ,since I had had a total hip replacement several years ago. There was also a gas burning fireplace which we enjoyed as the sun was setting out our window showing the beautiful fields and woods. We were not disappointed by the menu nor the wine list which was very diversified and all were priced very fairly. Portion control was perfect on the meals and the hosts went out of their way to make every guest feel comfortable and welcome . We spent Saturday visiting the Serpent Mound and shopping at various antique shops along with a visit to the Amish furniture store. The only downside to the whole visit was there wasn't any sign to indicate where to check in or register when you arrive. We finally asked some guests in the lodge and they directed us to the historic house where all the meals are served. We highly recommend this unique inn in the Ohio Amish country.

Innkeeper Response
Thanks for your kind words. And we will take your comments very seriously. Thank you!

Be King of your Cabin

4.4 on February 16, 2011

If you can't afford a summer cabin of your own, rent one at Murphin Ridge Inn and be the king of your castle for the weekend. The cabins include every amenity you could dream of in a country cottage: shower for two, hot tub, fireplace, mini-kitchen, and more. The grounds are lovely and relaxing; the meals are delicious and served with care. A real retreat.

Innkeeper Response
Many thanks! This means so much to us. Come back to the Ridge!

An Amish Weekend

5 on February 09, 2011

We participated in "Amish Weekend" at the Ridge and words can't describe the wonderful time we had. First, the room accommodations were impeccable, the meals were delicious and the staff was friendly, welcoming and unmatched in the industry. The other guests that we befriended were some of the friendliest people we have ever met. The entire weekend was a huge success and we can’t wait to return to the Ridge.

Innkeeper Response
Wow! Thank you! I hope the experience of the Amish Weekend is lasting. It is for us!

Relaxing, pampering getaway

4.8 on February 09, 2011

We stayed in one of the cabins for the weekend. The cabins are amazing--so comfortable, clean, and luxurious. Every little detail is taken care of. The innkeepers are amazing: so friendly! the food was great--some of the best food i've had in Ohio. We had the pork and the steak and both were amazing. The food is as local as they can get and you can tell: If I recall, my steak had been butchered by their chef that morning. We were there for Amish weekend, coincidentally, and it was clear that the Inn is a great neighbor to the Amish and has great neighbors that all look out for each other. It was a great and unforgettable experience. Lastly, I cannot fail to mention the excellent service by the waitstaff: so attentive and friendly! They were always offering things to-go, explained the menu, offered suggestions. Murphin Ridge Inn is a gem in Southern Ohio and I can't wait to go back.

Innkeeper Response
Thank you for taking the time to tell us of your stay at Murphin. We are thrilled to hear of your stay. We are looking forward to your next stay on the Ridge.

Murphin Ridge Inn is Pure Delight

5 on February 09, 2011

Each Winter, we get away to Murphin Ridge Inn to stay in one of their woodland cabins. It only takes moments to unwind once you step into the serene cabin and bite into one of their luscious meals. Innkeepers Sherry and Darryl are so gracious. We highly recommend Murphin Ridge Inn!

Innkeeper Response
Thanks so much for the kind words. We work for the applause. And we take to heart all the accolades and will continue to make your stay a great experience.

Murphin Ridge is a Gem!

4.8 on January 26, 2011

We stayed at Murphin Ridge on January 21st & 22nd. It was bright, cold & wonderful! The cabins are sublime. Dinner on Saturday night was exceptional! Sightseeing in Amish country is fine, and if you need good, solid furniture at reasonable rates, you need to come here. Daryl & Sherry are the best.

Innkeeper Response
Many thanks for taking the time to share your experience and kind words. See you back on the Ridge.

Weekend geta way when it was -2 degrees

Great fun. Met Darryl and Sherry the Inn Keepers. They are so much fun. Especially enjoyed their stories....and it was their 45 wedding anniversary as well!!! Met Sara the friendly ghost. If it is this nice in the winter, imagine the summer!!

Innkeeper Response
Forty five years and still in love. The inn makes it easy. Thank you for letting us know of your experience. Come back to the Ridge.

- Sherry and Darryl (innkeeper)

Stop your search... this is where you want to stay!!

5 on January 22, 2011

I spent a few weeks looking over various inns and cottage in Ohio, Michigan and Pennsylvannia and I admit that some where way out of my price range and others just seemed too bland or outdated. Then I stumbled across Murphin Ridge and it caught my eye because it wasn't outrageously priced but it still looked country/modern. After reading through 80+ reviews, there was not a bad one to be found. The cabins are beautiful, so peaceful and quiet. You really are in the middle of nowhere, and sometimes its just the perfect place to be. Sherry and Darryl are two very genuine people and when they are talking to you, you feel as if you have known them for years. Being a chef myself I was glad to see that everyone raved about the food at Murphin Ridge. After dining there myself I agree, the food was wonderful. This place truly is a gem and I have recommended it to everyone who asked me about our stay. You will not be dissapointed. -Matt and Mary

Innkeeper Response
I remember you well. You both were a joy to have and thank you for sharing your experieces with us. As a chef you know what work goes into our food. Thank you for appreciating our efforts.

Murphin Ridge

4.2 on January 21, 2011

My wife and I loved our stay at Murphin Ridge (it was our first). Even though it was one night the property and cabins were breathtaking. We decided less than a week later to book a two night weekend get away this coming Spring.

Innkeeper Response
Thank you for sharing your thoughts with us. See you in the spring.

- Sherry (innkeeper)

Wonderful, as usual!

One Year Anniversary Stay

5 on January 17, 2011

My husband and I celebrated our one year anniversary at Murphin Ridge Inn, and had a wonderful time. We were welcomed with warm wishes, and the friendly staff was extremely accommodating. This was our third time staying in the cabins, and we highly recommend it to anyone who wants a relaxing weekend get-a-way!

Innkeeper Response
Thank you so much! Happy Anniversary and we look forward to seeing you for the second.

- Sherry (innkeeper)

New Year

5 on January 07, 2011

Spent the New Year in a cabin at this pleasant retreat. The staff was friendly and extremely accomodating. The brunch was delicious. The cabin had a great shower, and we loved the fireplace/whirlpool set up. Would love to revisit in the summer time when the pool is open.


5 on January 05, 2011

Everything is great here. Darryl and Sherry are ready for anything one may require. We stayed here last summer solstice and enjoyed the pool and the huge rockers on the porch where we watched a gigantic rainstorm that had the cornfields waving. The rooms are soooo clean. Food is comfort. Homemade. Amish fresh. Great bonfire to sit around; outside dining areas. Lots of birds. Walking paths. We enjoyed it so much we stayed here for the winter solstice. It feels really good here.

Innkeeper Response
You have captured the essence of Murphin Ridge in your comments. Thank you for taking the time to let us and others know. It does feel really good here.

New Year's at Murphin Ridge Inn

4.4 on January 04, 2011

Staying at Murphin Ridge Inn is an absolutely wonderful experience. The innkeepers and the entire staff are most gracious and thoughtful and truly do everything they can to make you feel welcome and cared for. I highly recommend the inn and am planning on several more stays with them.

Great Romantic Getaway!

4.6 on January 02, 2011

My husband and I had only 24 hours for our getaway. The Murphin Ridge Inn enabled us to leave the world behind and really luxuriate in each other's company.

the perfect getaway

5 on January 01, 2011

The McKenneys provide the perfect getaway for us-- great food, great cabin and no agenda or alarm clock. Even though it was very cold, our cabin was toasty! We are planning to return in the spring.


4.6 on December 31, 2010

We loved the comfort and convenience of the Murphin Ridge Inn. The service was excellent, the food delectable and the cabin (Fantastik Carols) was cozy, comfortable, private and clean. A perfect getaway.

Innkeepers gave very personal attention. Food was wonderful! Very special

Murphin Ridge in winter

3.6 on December 22, 2010

A weekend at Murphin Ridge eased our holiday stress. Sherry and Darryl were very friendly, helpful and made us feel at home -- and that no request was too great. They were without a regular chef when we visited, so the dinners were not up to the reviews we have read. Breakfast, prepared by Sherry, was another story. Excellent.

Superb quiet get-away!

5 on December 16, 2010

Our 4th time staying here & we are always pleased with everything they have to offer. We were surprised when returning from breakfast that our cabin had already been cleaned! Upon checking out we were even offered coffee or bottled water for the road. We will return & we highly recommend this to anyone.


4.6 on December 14, 2010

We had a very relaxing stay at the Murphin Ridge Inn. Everyone made you feel "special" and went above to assist with any request.

Memorable Experience

5 on December 08, 2010

We can't say enough nice things about our stay (too short) at the Murphin Ridge Inn. Everything was exceptional, especially the personal touch added by Sherry and Darryl. Their genuine interest in making sure their guests have a wonderful experience was evident from the moment we approach the front desk. They truely know the meaning of making their custmers very happy!! We HIGHLY recommend this wonderful get a away destination.....the experience was fantastic.

Murphin Ridge

5 on December 05, 2010

We stayed in the lodge in a comfortable and well-appointed room. The meals were great. We walked one of the several wooded trails and visited one of the cabins. On our next visit, we will seriously consider staying in one of the cabins, just for fun. The innkeepers were delightful.

Murphin Ridge Inn

4.8 on December 03, 2010

The Cabins were outstanding, food was excellent and Mr. and Mrs. McKenney were wonderful hosts. Will return in the near future.

Our anniversary getaway

4.8 on December 02, 2010

Yes, the food is delicious. Yes, conversation around the campfire is lively. Yes, the cabins & lodge rooms are great. But, who else has Darryl's kazoo! ;-)

Hidden Treasure

4.6 on November 29, 2010

The inkeepers couldnt have been nicer and more accommadating. The food was excellent!! Cabin was modern and clean. The grounds were well maintained and had beautiful views of the foothills. The Amish community surrounding Murphin Ridge make for nice long walks and shopping.

Romantic Getaway

5 on November 26, 2010

I recently stayed at the Murphin Ridge for the week-end. It was one of the best stays I have had in awhile. The staff was very friendly, and very accomadating. The room was very clean. As you walk in, you know this is just what you wanted in a cabin getaway. The fireplace was so inviting, and my favorite, was the jacuzzi tub. I had to take a least two baths a day. I was worried that the food was not going to be what I was use to, but I was wrong. It was absolutly great! After dinner we went outside to the outdoor fire pit. This was my husbands best part, it was very cozy. They also offered breakfast with the room, which makes it very convenant, for there is no other restraunts in the area. I loved sitting in the side dining room, it was bright and cozy, you could also take your coffee and sit outside and enjoy the view. The area was nice, we enjoyed going to the amish stores in the area. Overall, this was a great getaway for my husband and myself. The rekindling we needed. I would highly recommend Murphin Ridge, Ive stayed at alot of Inn's, and this was a "10".


5 on November 15, 2010

Our first visit in August proved to be so relaxing and peaceful, that we returned in October for a cabin stay. It's hard to say which accommodations are best, but the meals are outstanding and the innkeepers are gems! Thanks, Darryl, for just what the doc ordered for the laryngitis! We will spend many more peaceful nights at the Ridge!

A Perfect Rural Ohio Experience You Shouldn't Miss

5 on November 07, 2010

If you want a relaxing country experience in Ohio (or even in the entire Midwest), you'll have a hard time beating a stay at Murphin Ridge Inn. Here's a sample experience: The night sky at the Inn was amazing. Before sunrise, I left our cabin and walked to the campfire spot on the Inn property. I put a couple of fresh logs on top of the coals from the past evening's fire and within a few minutes I was sitting next to a warm fire and looking at a night sky unlike any I'd previously seen in southern Ohio. The Milky Way was beautiful (you could actually make out dust lanes). I saw half a dozen shooting stars and two satellites. (Between the morning and evening skies) I could see, with the naked eye, the Double Cluster in Perseus, the Beehive Cluster in Cancer, and the Andromeda Galaxy. After star gazing for thirty minutes I wandered into the inn kitchen at about 0645 and found the innkeepers busy working on breakfast. We had a nice conversation and I took a cup of coffee back to the fire and watched the sunrise. I saw deer come out of the treeline while looking at a harvested corn field across from the fire pit. I saw birds and squirrels greet the day and start working the feeders scattered about the property. I certainly wouldn't mind having every day start that way. The Inn property has a nice set of hiking trails you can share with the deer. The local Amish culture provides a perfect contrast to the lives most of us are living today. Cultural experiences extend to Native American relics... be sure to visit the Serpent Mound and you'll also get to see an ancient impact crater. You can easily fill two days with activities and still have time to read a good book while rocking on a cabin porch. The food and service is excellent, you couldn't ask for better innkeepers and staff. Make sure you have at least one dinner at the Inn. Brian and Tracey Dayton, Ohio

Innkeeper Response
Thanks so much for "getting" the Murphin experience. Darryl and I hope it stays with you till the next time. You are kind to take the time to write. You made our week, no our month. See you soon on the Ridge.

Engagement weekend!

4.8 on November 03, 2010

We had a wonderful time! We got engaged at Murphin Ridge Inn at sunrise and it was a day we will never forget! If you are thinking of "popping the question" or have been married for a number of years and want to celebrate, Murphin Ridge Inn is the place.

Innkeeper Response
What nice words to wake up to. May your lives be filled with joy. See you on the Ridge and THANKS!

Murphin Ridge Inn

4.6 on November 03, 2010

I was amazed when I came back from eating breakfast that my room was all made-up. I wasn't gone more than 40 minutes. Also, I was there Friday, Saturday and Sunday and I never saw a cleaning person at all.

Innkeeper Response
Our staff is the BEST. Thanks for noticing and letting others and the great housekeepers know. Come back to the Ridge and see if you can find a housekeeper.

Nice stay at Murphin Ridge

4.2 on October 27, 2010

We stayed at the Murphin Ridge Inn 2 nights during a family visit. It is a really nice place out in the country with many interesting nearby to visit. The room was nice with a beautiful view and the dinner we had there was wonderful!

Innkeeper Response
You warm us with your words. Thanks and we will see you again on the Ridge.

- Sherry and Darryl (innkeeper)

This is a bit of heaven.

5 on October 22, 2010

I want to move in and experience the warmth, quiet, friendliness of Murphin Ridge Inn every day. Darryl, Sherry, Karen and the other members of the staff made our stay so special. The dinners are out-of-this world and having Darryl and Sherry there to share their thoughts about food and about the entire Adams County environment and their reasons for locating there added to the dining experience. We slept with our balcony door open and listened to the coyotes calling in the distance and breathed the cool, clean air. If I can't move in, I hope to visit again real soon.

Innkeeper Response
Your observations remind us of how fortunate we are. Thanks, and thanks for taking the time to write.

Murphin Ridge Wonderful Holiday

absolutely peaceful, charming and refreshing

5 on September 28, 2010

The moment I stepped onto the front porch of our cabin, I felt a peace surround me that was so needed. The remainder of the stay was the same. i can't wait to find a night or 2 to return!!!

Innkeeper Response
Peace is what we seek on the Ridge. Glad you found it. Come back!

Inn Exploration

4.4 on September 27, 2010

My wife and I wanted to compare the Murphin Inn's cabins with those of similar Inns in the area. The cabins were of more modern log cabin design and were very clean and comfortable. The individual cabin units were close together but the environment was very quiet. The food and service were excellent, and the grounds were very well maintained and scenic.

Innkeeper Response
Thanks so much and please come back to the Ridge.

Late summer retreat

4.6 on September 25, 2010

I took my mother to celebrate her 1 year anniversary of surviving breast cancer. We had a gorgeous drive along the river before we turned north to arrive at Murphin Ridge. I've been a long time cabin-stayer, but had booked an inn room for my mother and the room she stayed in was, indeed, a welcome respite. The food in the dining room at dinner was the best ever. I can't say enough about how welcomed we felt. Thank you Darryl & Sherry!

Innkeeper Response
Let's celebrate next year together. And many years on the Ridge to come. Thanks for the very kind words.

- Sherry (innkeeper)

Just beautiful!

Wonderful Getaway!

4.6 on April 30, 2009

What a beautiful drive and place to stay in Adams County, rain or shine. Recently enjoyed a wonderful two days there. The owner is friendly and quite comical! The service at dinner was second to none! Would highly recommend the cabins. :)

Oh My!

5 on February 21, 2009

What a wonderful, wonderful Inn. The view, the food, the friendly service it all was excellent. I can't wait to go back.

Beautiful location

4.6 on October 30, 2008

I visited the Inn with my granddaughters and it was a very delightful experience for all of us, even the toddler had a good time. I have visited several Bed and Breakfasts and Inns and this one is one of the best. The food and service was awesome.

Wow!!! This is heaven!

5 on August 13, 2008

This was our first stay in a B&B. We stayed in a beautiful cabin that was impressively decorated and incredibly clean. Very comfortable beds, many sites for lounging with beautiful views...or hiking/exploring. The food is incredible. (We bought a cookbook.)Make sure to join for dinner. Innkeepers are friendly and warm - You'll feel like old friends!

Get Getaway!

5 on January 19, 2008

It was a wonderful and very enjoyable experience. This was our first trip to the inn but it won't be our last.

Great friends Get-Away

5 on June 21, 2007

Three of my friends and I have hectic lives and decided to do our first annual get-away at Murphin Ridge Inn. It was a delightful stay. We especially loved sitting around the fire pit, looking at the stars and having great conversation with the other guests. The food was fantastic and the owners have a wonderful sense of humor and make you feel so at home! Loved it!

Murphin Ridge Anniversary

5 on January 18, 2007

This is truly one of the nicest inns we have ever visited. We stayed in a cabin. It was beautifully decorated and we loved the shower as well as the whirlpool. It was such a pleasant and relaxing stay, perfect for our anniversary. The innkeepers were friendly and yet allowed you your privacy if you wanted it. The food was delicious. We also enjoyed the fact that they had trails (with maps) that we could hike. The inn is a bit isolated, but that added to its charm for us. We would highly recommend this inn to anyone looking for relaxation, romance and just unwinding from the daily stresses of life.
