This place was perfect from the initial reservation process until the minute we headed for home after a week's stay.
The innkeepers are a delight, and their passion for this beautiful place is apparent in every detail. The Murphin Ridge Inn is a wonderful place to go to relax. The grounds are extremely well-kept without looking contrived. Beautiful gardens and landscaping, trails through the woods, a pool, an awesome fire pit with the most relaxing, fantastic view of the sunrise, great porches and chairs for sitting, reflecting, reading, or finishing your morning or evening coffee.
We stayed in My Cabin. Great choice. It was quiet, felt very secluded, roomy, warm, and well-appointed with amazing reproduction furniture from David T. Smith ---you MUST stop by his workshops in Morrow, OH while you're in the area. The housekeeping staff did a fantastic job. A delicious homemade sweet treat was delivered to the room every afternoon. Plenty of fluffy towels and luxurious bedding. Loved it.
The food was beyond good. Foodies will love this place. I think between my husband and I, we tried nearly everything on the menu since we were there for a week. It was all delicious, creative, artfully presented, and perfectly seasoned. I never picked up the salt or pepper all week.....no need. We never had to ask for anything as the wait staff was fantastic. The staff all seemed to like working there very much.......which makes me like the place even more. Breakfasts were also amazing. Sherri's Foggy Bottom Pancakes are simply the best.
Darryl was extremely helpful in making suggestions and giving directions to things we might enjoy in the area. Both Darryl and Sherri were lots of fun to talk to and they really give the place a personality. We will most definitely be going back. I've never had a more relaxing vacation. It was worth every penny.
