Hear What Our Guests Have to Say


My wife and I had the pleasure of staying here recently and it was awesome. We are not cabin folks, by any means, but the place had all the charm of a cabin with just the right amount of modern creature comforts for city-dwellers like us. The owner, Jennifer, made it more like visiting family you like and actually want to visit more than a business. She was thoughtful, made great recommendations, spent time us just chatting, and man, can she cook! The breakfasts were 5-star. 



Willis Graves was an excellent B & B for a quiet getaway weekend. Only 20 minutes from Cincinnatti, it’s easy to get to and still feels like you’re far away from the hustle and bustle of the day-to-day. We stayed in the ‘Mr. and Mrs. Graves’ Suite’ which included a spacious sitting room and a two-person hot tub in the bathroom. It was cozy and comfortable, with lots of attention to detail and small amenities that gave a feeling of luxury (welcome cookies, s’mores kit and a fire pit, a fireplace in the room …) We will definitely be back! 



My husband, daughter and I make a trip to northern Kentucky every year in May to visit family, and it is always a pleasure to stay at the Willis Graves Bed and Breakfast. My husband and I delight in staying at the downstairs suite of the charming Log Cabin, while our adult daughter stays in the comfortable Catherine’s Room of the main house. The atmosphere is quiet and restful, the innkeeper Jennifer and her staff are cheerful and attentive, and the breakfast ( and the treats deliverd daily by the housekeeper) are gourmet delights! We’ll be back again (and again!)
