Situated on the edge of the Appalachian foothills in Adams County, Ohio, the Murphin Ridge Inn and its surrounding 140 acres nestle you in the comfort of the countryside. No matter what the season, the Ridge is awash with color. The Inn offers a cozy stopping place in beautiful, natural surroundings. We invite you to explore our wooded trails and take along a picnic lunch prepared by our chef. Enjoy a game of tennis or relax by our seasonal pool. Read, nap, or play a game of croquet. If you must leave the Inn, take the short trip to historic Serpent Mound, the surrounding Amish community or other nearby attractions. As the sun sets, join us in our 1820s Farm House for dinner, where our chef prepares delicious, fresh regional cuisine. Then, when the candles dim, stroll back to the Guest House to read and chat with other guests in the great room or retire to one of our cozy, modern guest rooms, custom furnished by southern Ohio's master craftsman, David T. Smith. When the sun beckons, enjoy a full country breakfast in the Farm House before beginning another day. Murphin Ridge Inn is a perfect setting for creative work, writing, and conferences. We strive to cater to all our guests' needs. Whether you come for quiet or companionship, relaxation or inspiration, you will find it at Murphin Ridge Inn.

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!

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.

Quiet place in the country

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

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.

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.

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

Wonderful Stay

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.
