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.

This was my wife and I's forth retreat at Murphin Ridge. It rained the whole time but didn't bother us a bit, we enjoyed the quiet time in the cabin talking, reading, playing games. Beautiful and refreshing!

We stayed in the Lodge for Friday and Saturday nights and loved it! The room was very clean and comfortable. We would never have known that there were other guests nearby, as everything was calm and quiet.The food for every meal was delicious and beautifully presented. We did a great hike on Saturday and visited the Amish Shops. Saturday night we sat around the fire pit and watched the stars come out. The whole experience was exceptional!

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.

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

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

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.
