Enjoy Your Stay at the Best Bed & Breakfast in Kentucky
When planning a special weekend away, it’s worth trying something a little different. If you haven’t been to a Bed & Breakfast in a while, or if you’ve never been to one at all, the refreshing personal hospitality is a real treat.
There’s something of a resurgence in Bed & Breakfast establishments in the United States and it’s wonderful to see the industry thriving. In the Cincinnati – Northern Kentucky area, you can stay at one of the very best.
Taste of Home recently named Willis Graves Bed & Breakfast the Top Bed & Breakfast in Kentucky in a 2022 list that highlighted just a single Inn for every state. Our entire team is incredibly proud of and grateful for the recognition. And if you want to know what makes our historical Bed & Breakfast so special, our doors are open.
Things are Different When You Stay at an Award-Winning Bed & Breakfast
For travelers that aren’t accustomed to Bed & Breakfast accommodation, there are some wonderful surprises at Willis Graves.
Sure, the term Bed & Breakfast seems to give a lot away, but it’s so much more than that. There’s a misconception that a Bed & Breakfast provides fewer amenities than a hotel, but this isn’t the case.
The difference is apparent from the moment you walk through the door at Willis Graves Bed & Breakfast. Our small and dedicated team is completely focused on hospitality. Your comfort and satisfaction in your stay is an absolute priority. Personal service and attentive staff are part of the package. This is the kind of personalized service that people pay extra for when visiting a high-end hotel in Kentucky or Cincinnati. At Willis Graves Bed & Breakfast, it’s all part of the core experience.
Jennifer, our wonderful Innkeeper and Chef loves to meet and greet guests. All our staff are highly trained and will go the extra mile to ensure that you are comfortable. Our rooms offer privacy and luxury in surroundings that are more authentic and much more relaxing than what’s available in the average or even the not-so-average hotel room.
Taste of Home pointed to our excellent hospitality when naming us the Best Bed & Breakfast in Kentucky. That’s something that we’re especially proud of. And then, there’s our kitchen…
Jennifer’s Gourmet Breakfast Kitchen
The Bed & Breakfast experience is as much about the dining as it is the luxurious rooms and personalized hospitality. Jennifer is a passionate and accomplished chef who has designed a breakfast menu to give you a real taste of our corner of the world.
Our guests say that our menu is “to die for”, and once you’ve stayed, you’ll undoubtedly agree. Jennifer is a real foodie, excited to try interpretations of classics with her own twists. The Cincinnati – Northern Kentucky region is a cultural melting pot and one of the best places to sample cuisines from around the world. You can start your day and your local adventure with menu items that have some familiar names yet unique flavors.
Everything starts with farm fresh and local ingredients. As a small local business, we love to support local producers.
Our Fabulous French Toast is a classic menu item, but you’ve never had it like at Willis Graves Bed & Breakfast. This traditional thick French Toast is prepared with real cream, Farm Fresh Eggs, and warm spices. It’s seasonally curated with assorted fruit and nut toppings. Of course, two ingredients must always go on French Toast – butter and pure maple syrup. We use plenty of both, making this one of the most popular items with our guests.
Some people love their Fabulous French Toast with a savory side, for which our Thick-Cut Slab Bacon is the recommended accompaniment. Sweet and savory flavors come together for a decadent breakfast that you will never forget.
Whether it’s our French Toast, Farm Fresh Eggs done your way, or Jennifer’s fantastic Quiche of the Day, our breakfasts are hearty, and filling. You simply won’t dine like this on a hotel menu.
Our Beautiful Rooms
We have rooms available in our 1850’s Federal Home, Authentic 1830s Log Cabin, and our airy and bright Garden Cottage.
