I have enjoyed two wonderfully relaxing stays at First Farm Inn, located just southwest of Cincinnati in Northern Kentucky. It offers a rural setting, yet is only a few minutes from Cincinnati.
They have horses to ride or just visit, a very friendly "welcoming committee" in their dog, Fluffy, and a host of kitties to snuggle with.
The owner, Jen Warner, provides a delicious homemade breakfast in the morning to get your day off to a great start. There is a great hot tub on the back deck that can be used year round to get you relaxed and de-stressed, and if that isn't enough, you can get a massage from a licenced massage therapist who comes to you!
My first visit was the best birthday gift I have ever received, my second visit was just a one night get away from it all stay because I enjoyed the first one so much.
All in all, I would highly recommend First Farm Inn to anyone looking for something a little different than an impersonal hotel when searching for someplace to give themselves a bit of a break or a little vacation.
