“Magical Experieence”
Reviewed 15 March 2014 via mobile

Today, March 15, 2014; was the most beautiful day we experienced in months. We decided to take a road trip and threw our destination to the fates. By the luck of the draw we headed toward Marysville, a place where we had past connections, and had not visited in years. Entering Marysville from the south can be very tricky; if you don't know to go straight into town, and fellow the road right, as indicated by a large arrow painted on the road, you are trapped to cross the bridge crossing the bridge into Aberdeen, Ohio. We just followed the road till we came to another bridge crossing back into Kentucky. Back in Kentucky, we saw the sign to Augusta and since neither of us had been to Augusta, we followed the road to a new destiny of discovery. Upon arriving in Augusta, we explored around a bit. We were especially charmed by the riverside drive and it's expansive river views. Hungary from our long drive. We stumbled upon the Plainview Inn. We no idea what we had stumbled into, started to enjoy one pleasant discovery after another. The Inn has been beautifully restored faithful to its historical past. The buffet was exquisitely prepared to perfection. I have never experienced home cooked food as perfectly prepared and presented. A truly wonderful gastronomic experience. I look forward to another visit to this treasure of Kentucky...

The buffet is quite good home made food. There are several entrees and a wide variety of vegetables and salads. Drink and dessert are included in the price on week-ends. The waiter was quite attentive to our needs. I recommend this buffet for those looking for quality food at a reasonable price.

My wife & I stayed overnight at the Parkview based on previous Tripadvisor reviews, and we were very surprised by what we found. The carpet in our room (the Derby) was VERY stained. I found a large empty bottle of gin, an empty wine bottle, and a Kotex wrapper under one of the beds!! One of the towels we were given for the bathroom was literally tattered and ripped. Every corner of the room had cob webs. The T.V. was one of the old ones with the VHS player in it (the VHS didn't work). The place needs a good cleaning & updated amenities. The only reason I am giving the Parkview 2 stars is because the breakfast was good & our waiter (Joseph) was very attentive. I did notice however that a table of 5 in the dining room all got their food at staggering times, so that the first person got their food and was done eating before the last person got their meal - - There are too many good B&B's nearby to waste your money on a poorly run Inn.

We just moved to the area and wanted a special night out with our daughter and her boyfriend. We took the Augusta ferry from the Ohio side and enjoyed a really nice dinner in this quaint inn. Joe, the waiter, was very attentive. Two gentlemen were providing dinner music and were very nice to listen to.
The buffet dinner was $13.95 and included drink and dessert. (No alcoholic beverages). We had several entrees including beef roast (very tender), pork roast (very tasty), fried fish (good flavor, but a little hard), fried chicken tenders (mine wasn't completely cooked). Sweet potato slices, really good scalloped corn, green beans, and real mashed potatoes. Salad bar included two types of lettuce, lots of different dressings (but no labels so we didn't know what was what), and a few add-ins like cheese and beets. Three soups were available; potato, chili and chicken noodle. The potato soup was good but could have used a few more potatoes in it.
Homemade bread was brought to the table. Dessert has a dozen different choices at least. We had blackberry pie and ice cream, key lime pie, cookies & cream brownie sundae and coconut cream pie. We were told the apple pie is awesome, but it was gone.
The dinner buffet is only available from 5:30-8pm during the week. We had to leave by 7:30 to catch the ferry back to Ohio or we would have stayed for coffee and listened to the music.

I discovered this place while on a Pittsburgh-Louisville Ohio River trip on my boat in 2010. The lock eight miles downstream from Augusta had one chamber out of service and we were looking at a 4-hour delay to get through. It was late afternoon so we went back up river to Augusta to search for a place to spend the night. The Parkview is just a couple blocks from the very nice Augusta riverfront and they had a room for us.

Phil and Jenny manage the place and they and their staff do great job. The rooms are unique and the food is very good. Augusta has a several little shops and places to eat. We have been back by boat on two other occasions.

I treat myself to a trip along the Ohio river and take the ferry across the Ohio river to a wonderful town of Augusta, Kentucky! This was and is sometimes the home to to clooney's and Miss America,Miss Heather French! the town has a good selection of shoppe and stores to wander in and out of and good food to dine on! We were lucky to find a treasure like the Parkview Inn! the owners Jenny And Phil greet you with a smile and a warm country welcome! We stayed two nights instead of one just because we felt at home and the rooms are so well decorated that we just had to make a weekend of it! You won't be disappointed at the prices either. they believe in a fair price for a great room,each room has its own theme and the cleanest B&B I've been in a long time! As the country folk there say" it's so good it makes your tongue want to slap your brains out! I can't say enough great things about this place! thank you again Jenny and Phil!

Room Tip: Each room has its own theme,the best thing is to visit and pick one that makes it special for you!
