Just Wow! My husband and I stayed here for 2 nights for a babymoon getaway in a cabin room. We were so impressed! Not only is the room cleaned to perfection, so many little surprises are in the room! Warm cookies, smore kits for the gas bonfire out back, lavender pillow spray, high quality bath products, battery powered candles, even bath salts for the enormous jacuzzi tub! (The tub was waayyy bigger than the pictures!)That was a common theme, the pictures online were beautiful but they just don't do justice. This is truly the most perfect romantic getaway spot.Once you get over how amazing the room is then there is breakfast. Yet again our high expectations (due to all the great reviews) were exceeded again! Everything was high quality and cooked to perfection in generous portions.The innkeeper and all the staff were so kind and welcoming! We definitely plan on returning in the future, it was worth every penny!

Excellent 1800’s period B&B, with immaculate attention to detail! They thought of everything from beautiful rooms, s’mores kits to use at the fire-pit and fresh cookies in the room, to a beautiful bathroom with steam shower and an exquisite chef- prepared breakfast! It is a MUST STAY destination when visiting Northern Kentucky!

Somewhat hesitant to share our experience because we don't want this hidden gem to become too popular and a travel hotspot... In all sincerity, my wife and I really enjoyed our stay at Willis Graves Bed & Breakfast! The room was extremely clean and newly renovated with contemporary design and selections. Also enjoyed waking up each morning to a delicious breakfast on the outside patio! Jennifer and Sara went above and beyond to ensure our stay exceeded our expectations! We look forward to our next visit!

Willis Graves Bed & Breakfast was our first B&B, and we loved every part! We loved everything, from the sleeping arrangements to the breakfast. It set such a high standard for all other B&B's. We highly recommend everyone to go here!

Excellent food, accommodations and hospitality, as has been for the past 20 years as we visit at least once each year. - Allan and Mary-Rose Andersen

My husband and I stayed two nights in the downstairs 1850 log cabin. Jennifer and Sara thought of every detail! The bed was more than comfy and cozy. Homemade cookies and bourbon balls were in our room when we arrived. They were delicious! We had our own private deck where we ate our dinner both nights, the first being furnished by Jennifer, and the second by the Tousey House that is an exquisite restaurant within walking distance of the cabin. The amenities were well appointed….gas burning fireplace, remote control candles on the mantle, jacuzzi tub and steam shower, heater on the deck, robes and a robe/towel warmer, a small fridge and microwave, along with espresso coffee maker,, wifi, and a large screen tv with cable. Everything we could ever think of! The decor and furniture made us feel right at home. Breakfast was delicious! We were able to choose the time, the menu, and whether we wanted to eat in dining room or our own room. Try the Blueberry French Toast Bake! Yum! We wish we could’ve stayed longer!

This was our first time here,and we were celebrating Valentines day. I read so many great reviews. It was clean, and the extra touches were nice and very much appreciated. I liked the heart on the bed, the chocolate covered strawberries, the roses,which we ordered for Valentines day. The bed was comfortable, the jet tub was fabulous!!! Also the fireplace was so nice. The steam shower was cool. Loved the towel warmer. Breakfast was THE BEST that I have ever had, ANYWHERE in my life!!!!!!!! Whomever prepared it definitely knew what they were doing. I am a very discriminating person and I promise you that I would not write or say this if it weren't 100%accurate. We really enjoyed our stay in Mr and Mrs. Graves suite.We definitely recommend!!!

Our trip was amazing!! Our room was spotless. Actually, everything was spotless. Several choices for breakfasts. We tried them all and they were delicious. Just can’t say enough good things. Our entire family had a great time.

What a wonderful place this is!! We have stayed several times over the recent years and it is always special. The food is amazing! The decor and attention to detail are other aspects we greatly appreciate. The owner and staff are great people who consistently bring joy to their guests!

This was such a wonderful getaway! All the finishings were immaculately installed in the garden cottage! The jetted tub to the deliciously prepared, breakfast made our stay that much better. The bed was so comfortable and the cottage was pristinely clean! The staff was so kind! It was very peaceful and serene.

We have been coming to the Willis Graves for almost 20 years, multiple times some years. It was excellent before Jennifer owned it but she has made it even better. Immaculate accommodations - both the rooms and the grounds are always spotless and tidy, comfortable and luxurious beds, showers and baths, superb food with choices, all the amenities one could want, and centrally located in proximity to many points of interest: Ohio River cruises, Lexington horse country, The Ark Experience, Big Bone Lick and many parks and arboretums. There are several very good restaurants within walking distance. Can't say enough good things about this B&B, the owner Jennifer Goodman is on top of everything and is personable as well as an excellent chef, and her server, Sara, who is an exceedingly gracious and nice person. We would recommend Willis Graves B&B in a heartbeat.
22:19 15 Aug 21
Beautiful place. Jennifer and Sara helped us immensely. Food was delicious. Of all our stays the furnishings and accommodations were wonderful. We had an emergency situation and Jennifer was most helpful. All ended well. Please if in the area, don't miss Willis Graves in Burlington, KY.
13:45 01 Aug 21
Highly recommend Willis Graves B&BStaff, accomodations and food are excellent. Great attention to detail! We'll definitely be back!
01:11 22 Jul 21
Jennifer was so kind and helpful! We truly felt at home. We stayed 2 nights in the Graves Suite. The breakfast was delicious! Thank you for a wonderful stay. We have travelled all across the states and this is one of the cleanest and sweetest B&B we have had the joy of staying at. Jennifer makes it so special and is a wonderful hostess! Can’t say enough beautiful things about our time here.
00:54 21 Jul 21
This is a slice of historic and contemporary heaven. Right around the corner from good food, shopping and the great state of Ohio! Jennifer and Sara are wonderful. So much fun and so accommodating. A great place to get away for peace and quiet and an amazing selection for breakfast! Who knew scrambled eggs could be so delicious. I’m telling all my friends about it so you better book fast! We WILL be back!

We stayed here last minute for an anniversary/ high-school reunion night. It was fantastic! They have thought of everything to make the stay comfortable and enjoyable. The property is gorgeous and the place is meticulously clean. We stayed in the upstairs cabin and enjoyed every moment. There was complimentary cookies and a bag of bath salts and also a pack of smores for the campfire. The fridge had cold water and ice, very convenient. There were plenty of clean towels the bed very very comfy. We enjoyed the jacuzzi tub and sauna shower very much. The breakfast was delicious and we enjoyed the host. It was a great great stay we will be back !
19:25 04 Jul 21
Wonderful accommodations and fabulous breakfasts. Host was also wonderful.
19:43 13 May 21
Absolutely beautiful place, GREAT place to get away. All the staff very professional, kind, and friendly!
23:59 05 May 21
FREAKING INCREDIBLE. I stayed here for my wedding night and could not have dreamt of a better choice. BEAUTIFUL property, beautiful rooms, amazing accommodations, and just an altogether incredible experience. They make most of their own consumable products (soaps, lotions, granola, yogurt, etc.) and all of them are TOP-TIER. In addition to all of it's wonderfulness, the Willis Graves Bed & Breakfast could honestly be just as successful as merely a restaurant, because the food is TO DIE FOR. Seriously, the BEST quiche I have ever had, and I've had a lot of quiche. DEFINITELY worth the stay and I can promise you I'll be back there myself.

Visited this weekend for a quick staycation and it was everything we anticipated and more!!! We left very relaxed. I haven't found a more romantic place to unwind.
17:14 15 Mar 21
Our favorite B & B of all time Have been coming here for over ten years. The new owner, Jennifer, has made wonderful improvements and upgrades. Super clean, cozy and comfortable and excellent breakfast each morning. Very CDC compliant so we felt very safe. Highly recommend.

Our stay was in the Garden Cottage. Very well-appointed and separate/private room just a few steps from the main house: Large room with open ceiling, huge Samsung smart TV, large, modern bathroom with deep air tub, comfy bed with several pillows, fridge, iron and ironing board, nice bedside extension plugs with USB, etc. And most importantly, the breakfast was bountiful and delicious. Such a nice place to stay for our weekend ski getaway!
00:12 26 Feb 21
Our stay for a ski weekend (at Perfect North) was in every way wonderful ! The breakfast was to die for!
16:06 18 Feb 21
Terrific accommodations...great breakfasts and service...it was a perfect Valentine's weekend getaway...
02:02 14 Feb 21
Amazing is the best word to use. It's was quite and relaxing also felt totally pampered by the most amazing breakfast and incredible bathroom steam shower and tub. At the same time enjoyed the historic cabin and it's period pieces that remain frozen in time from the original settlers.
16:23 12 Feb 21
A wonderful experience from beginning to end! My family booked three rooms for several nights to go skiing at Perfect North Slopes. Each morning we’d enjoy a mountain of gourmet breakfast foods (of a tremendous variety) that kept us full through an entire day of skiing. At night, we were pleasantly surprised by the number of restaurants within walking distance. And, most importantly, the rooms are luxurious yet cozy and charming—really can’t recommend enough!
05:10 11 Jan 21
What a great place to enjoy a quiet weekend with someone special!!! Had a fantastic time!! The Garden Cottage is "Awesome!" ❤❤ This is a great quick getaway!! See you guys again soon, real soon!!!

My wife and I love this place, and it's still great despite everything associated with 2020. Food is delicious; beds are comfy; plush decor; friendly service. Best staycation spot, hands down!
23:25 10 Oct 20
Stayed here on our wedding night and just visited again last week for our 5 year anniversary! We love everything about Willis-Graves... cozy suite, luxury furnishings, perfect outdoor space, and absolutely phenomenal breakfast! Even during the COVID pandemic, they still managed to make us feel special and cared for with personal touches and wonderful hospitality. This place is everything one could hope for in a B&B. I don't know if we can wait 5 more years to come back! Thank you for giving us such an amazing place to enjoy as we celebrate our milestones. Looking forward to many more visits in years to come!

We just arrived home from our third stay at Wiilis Graves B&B. We love it there. The property is lush and beautiful, the rooms are cozy and beautifully decorated and have every amenity of a five star hotel. The food is amazing and Jennifer, the owner makes your stay like being at home, giving you your choice of homemade cookies upon arrival, and placing supplies for Smores in your room incase you want to light a fire in the cozy outdoor fire pit. We cannot say enoughabout this charming getaway and it's owner and staff. We are already planning our next visit.Highly recommended.Debbie W. Indpls, IN.

Best Bed & Breakfast We've ever encountered !A breakfast to die for. A host that thinks of everything !
00:39 29 Aug 20
We wanted to get away from it all. COVID and other factors told us "away" wasn't all that far from home. Through the comfort of Log Cabin #1 and the food/service we accomplished our goal of getting away from it all. The sheets felt like butter. The bed felt like it was made for my aching back.I suggest you take a couple of days. Run around to Eden Park or the Aquarium. Have dinner around the corner at Zozo's (sushi and other yummies) and then back to W&G. You won't regret it.

What a great oasis for escaping the norm!! Beautiful suite and surrounding garden. All of our needs were met, and the breakfast foods were VERY delicious and filling.
14:56 19 Jul 20
The room was beautiful, if I could put the Garden Cottage on wheels and take it home with me I would. The bed was so comfortable, I haven't slept that well in a long time! The SHEETS, oh my! They were so soft. The bathroom was so luxurious and completely updated. Hands down the best breakfast I have ever had. We can't wait for our next visit!
22:53 14 Jul 20
We’re locals. We stopped in unannounced just to check the place out. Very rude of us. But Jennifer was a very gracious host. We sat on the back patio and learned about the property. Then she gave us a tour of the cabins. Even though we live nearby, we’re saving for a weekend getaway here. Are the cabins as nice in person as they appear in the pictures??? No. They’re even nicer! We love this place!!
19:50 28 Jun 20
Very nice place to stay. Clean, quiet, and every essential and each detail, was beyond expectations. Highly recommended!
10:53 10 Jun 20
We stayed here just to get away and relax. Jennifer was awesome. We absolutely LOVED the cabin and the breakfast was phenomenal! We had an awesome experience and would definitely stay again!
23:35 09 Jun 20
My husband and I needed to get away from the teenagers we've quarantined with since March. It was our anniversary of a long time and this was local enough (5 minutes away) that we could check on the teenagers and they could reach us if there was a problem. We stayed in the Garden Cottage, bought sushi from Kroger and hung out. It was perfect. The most delicious breakfast, the next morning, was served at our door (they took our order by phone the night before). It's was the perfect getaway, felt totally Covid safe. Highly recommended!
09:49 17 Mar 20
Love this place! Clean, warming and relaxing! Loved the breakfast! They also have 2 separate cabins as well, I just stayed in one of their smaller rooms.They also have cooking classes! Only 40 minutes away from Cincinnati Outlet Mall! 10 minutes or less away from shopping. Check the website out or call directly.
00:34 16 Mar 20
Very rustic setting, lots to look at as you stroll through both the outdoor and indoor property. Jennifer & Sarah have worked hard to create an attractive environment. We stayed in the cabin, originally built in the 1850’s, moved and restored down by the “creek.” With a metal roof and all modern amenities it looks like it was just recently built. Has jacuzzi and a steam shower in a large, private bathroom. We loved the décor and the fireplace. We sat on the porch and soaked in the sun. As a plus, Jennifer provides a menu for breakfast – most satisfying. A delightful experience!
01:43 18 Feb 20
My wife and I stayed here on our why threw from Tennessee back to Michigan. It is a beautiful property. The breakfast was amazing. Definitely recommend staying.

We were so comfortable staying at this b & b. Our bed was wonderful, the house is quite, breakfast delicious and Jennifer was very open and inviting. Thank you!

Excellent B&B. Wonderful location. Friendly staff. Inn keeper went out of her way to make our stay excellent. Breakfast is amazing. we will definitely stay again. Very close to The Creation Museum and not too far from The Ark Encounter
15:05 17 Aug 19
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Willis Graves. The garden cottage was nicely decorated, comfortable, and quiet. The grounds were nicely kept, and breakfast was amazing! We also enjoyed sitting on the back porch.We also appreciated all the nice extra touches from the staff, including cookies in our room upon arrival and chocolates the next day. We definitely look forward to returning!
18:03 03 Aug 19
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 actually like and want to visit than a business. She was thoughtful, made great recommendations, spent time with us just chatting, and man can she cook. The breakfasts were 5 star!
13:12 22 Jul 19
This is a fantastic B&B, the cleanliness, decor and food are all exceptional! We've stayed 3 times in the past few years and plan to make it a regular visit.

The accommodations, amenities, food, location, southern hospitality...basically, we loved everything about this place!
18:39 18 Feb 19
My wife and I have stayed at 4 B&Bs. All in Kentucky, and they each had there own fine points. The Willis Graves Bed and Breakfast surpassed all our expectations. The facility 5 stars, the service and accommodations, 5 stars, the staff 5 stars, the food was beyond 5 stars. If you are traveling or just want a special treat of a night or more out this is the place to be. YOU REALLY SHOULD CHECK THIS PLACE OUT!!!!!!!!!
15:54 29 Jan 19
Always a perfect getaway.

This was our second time staying at Willis Graves, and our first with the new owner. We were not let down, staying there was like being at home but without kids :-D. The breakfast is incredibly pleasant and it was nice talking to the charismatic staff. 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 delivered daily by the housekeeper) are gourmet delights! We’ll be back again (and again!)
00:32 29 May 18
We stayed at the Willis Graves Bed and Breakfast in Burlington KY for our 5 year anniversary and it was wonderful! We had actually gotten engaged there about 6 1/2 years ago. The staff is great, amenities are TOP NOTCH and we will definitely be going back again. My all time favorite b&b!

Absolutely love this Historic Bed and Breakfast! The breakfast is amazing. We loved the William Rouse Log Cabin Suite. Private and cozy. Burlington Historic District is a great place to come visit and stay.
22:32 11 Sep 17
A well furnished, historic home that's been transformed into a romantic bed and breakfast. An extremely comfortable get-a-way to go and relax. The cookies present in our suite when we arrived were 'to die for'. The addition of chocolate covered strawberries was heaven sent. (Get them) The breakfast was to order from a select menu and was excellently prepared by Chef Jennifer. We'll highly recommend this B&B to friends and family. (I know it sounds sappy but we really liked this place and will go back again... maybe the log cabin next time.)
16:10 28 Aug 17
Hands down, the cleanest and most charming B & B I have ever stayed at. The innkeeper Jennifer is warm and delightful. Worth a stay just for the breakfast. A great place to relax and tune out. Only 15 minutes from the airport but seems a world away. Can't wait to go back!
