Professionally Inspected & Certified Diamond Collection


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.

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!

Outstanding Service

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.

Amazing Night

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.
