Willis Graves' Reviews

This was one of the best experiences I have had staying over night hands down! My wife and I had celebrated our wedding day and we were able to get away to this fantastic location for two nights of rest and relaxation. With flower petals on our bed, chocolate covered strawberries, and sparkling wine waiting for us when we arrived it was truly a magical stay that was everything we wanted and more! Breakfast was delicious both days and with such friendly people around it truly felt like we were being welcomed into someone's home. We loved our patio/deck off the back of the log cabin and enjoyed some sun before it began raining but overall loved our time there! We are definitely looking forward to making return visits and will always remember how great of care Willis Graves took for us!
We have been coming to this B&B for years. Very comfortable rooms. Good breakfast and good service. We'll be back again next year!
Perfect all the way around - every amenity you could want, a wonderful host and really a beautiful place. It was the weekend getaway we were looking for!Burlington is a lovely little town with a few nice restaurants, too.

We had a wonderful visit. The room was spacious and very clean. The bed was one of the most comfortable I’ve ever slept in. Loved the little personal touches! The grounds were lovely, and the fire pit was an added bonus. Everyone was nice and welcoming. Breakfast was amazing. (I had the French toast, bacon, and fruit bowl... YUMMY!!)I would highly recommend Willis Graves to anyone staying in the area! You will not be disappointed!

Recently stayed with my husband for the weekend for our 20th anniversary. Was absolutely a wonderful place to stay with warm hospitality, delicious food, beautiful and cozy room and amazing charm. It was an experience to remember. Can't say enough about how host and staff are friendly, welcoming and accommodating. Was first time trying a bed & breakfast, and this one surely sets the bar high. Will look forward to returning again soon in the future

This B&B has everything you could ever want if you’re looking for a clean, romantic, historic, relaxing, hospitable, and quiet getaway. From the moment I walked in I was ohh-ing and ahhh-ing over all the little details put into our stay. My husband surprised me with chocolate covered strawberries with a fruit and cheese tray that was phenomenal Jennifer prepared! The bed was so cozy we didn’t want to get up except to eat the fabulous breakfast Jennifer made every morning! The bathroom with its heated floors, two person shower and soaking tub was a relaxing way for us to unwind from school, work, kids and every day life. You will not be disappointed with your stay here!

Was here to ski at Perfect North just 20ish minutes from this B&B. Absolutely stunning room and thoughtful service - definitely on the level of a 4-star hotel (I stayed in the Thomas Suite). Even though owners are not there all the time, they are very thoughtful about what they provide in the room. Breakfast was top-notch restaurant quality that won't pale in comparison to some of the best brunch spots in New York City. Already booked my next ski trip accommodation here! A hidden gem - I will be a regular during ski season.

Enjoyed our stay, stayed in the upper cabin suite everything was great and breakfast the next morning was excellent
What a wonderful little gem a friend told me about. I stayed in the log cabin downstairs suite and it was more than I imagined. The suite is perfectly appointed, the fireplace turns on with the push of a button, and the jetted tub is huge. Robes and slippers are provided. The bead is heavenly. The owner is very kind and goes above and beyond. Breakfast was delicious. I can't wait to go back.

We were there to visit the Ark and the Creation Museum. This B&B made our visit perfect. The breakfasts were were over the top, 10-out-of-10, delicious and splendid. AND it is a short drive to both exhibits.

My wife and I visited this bed and breakfast over the weekend and were very impressed by everything we experienced. We stayed in the Mr. and Mrs. Graves suite and it was fantastic. The soaking tub was just amazing. We also enjoyed two days of a very nice breakfast. I would highly recommend this to any couple looking for a quite getaway. We will be back for sure!!
A topnotch, historic Bed & Breakfast located in Burlington, Kentucky. The setting is absolutely beautiful with luxurious rooms. The cabin has two private rooms that are both large and with lots of amenities. The bathrooms are large, have separate walk-in steam showers, and jetted tubs. Room #1 is a main floor room with the only stairs outside leading up to the covered porch. This room has a large patio off the back of the cabin, while Room #2 is located on the second floor. When booking this cabin, you also have the option to rent the basement. Here, you'll find a large screen (80in) TV, reclining sofa, tables, refrigerator, popcorn machine, and games. Additionally, there's a gas firepit outside, with smores kits located in each room.If you're looking for something that's brighter and there are no steps to navigate, The Garden Cottage is absolutely gorgeous. You'll also have your own private patio. Lastly, if you'd rather stay in the main house or have a family, there are 2 options, the Willis and Graves Suite, which is the largest, or the main house where you'll find extra room with two bathrooms and additional sleeping via a daybed. However, you should note that this room is located on the second floor and the stairs are a bit steep. Whichever you choose, I'm sure you'll love it! Another noteworthy mention is that the owner is a culinary expert. You'll place your breakfast order the day before, picking the time you'd like to eat. Breakfast is served in the main house dining area. The food was amazing and prepared to perfection!

Everything was amazing. The property is gorgeous. The rooms are so beautiful and so many details taken care of. We enjoyed the jet tub and steam shower…. Even the s’mores kit ready for their large outdoor fire pit. The bed was so comfortable, the birds chirping were pleasing to our ears and breakfast was delicious. We will definitely be back.

This was our second time staying at Willis Graves and it was such a pleasant stay. Every detail on the property is well thought out and well executed. And the food is out-of-this-world good. Jennifer is an extremely talented chef. All of the food is amazing but our personal favorites were the homemade yogurt (WOW!) and homemade granola, and the big fluffy pancakes. Oh, and Jennifer bakes the best welcome cookies when you arrive - so delicious!The property grounds are very well kept and we enjoyed walking around and looking at all the flowers and plants; it was too warm for a fire during our stay but there is a great fire pit and the rooms are equipped with s'more making kits. The rooms all have a microwave, fridge, nespresso maker, and tea kettle, which is very much appreciated. The bathtubs in the rooms are also very large and nice. Jennifer has done a great job at preserving the history of the place, but also providing all the modern comforts you could ever want. The A/C worked very well and we were nice and cool in July.Thank you for the wonderful stay, Willis Graves. We cannot wait to return!

My goodness! This might be the nicest bed and breakfast I have ever stayed at. The inn keeper was lovely and the log cabin-- I don't have the words to say how nice it is. You will not regret booking a room at the Willis- Graves Inn
Where do I begin? Everything was wonderful! The bed was so comfortable and the sheets were the softest and smoothest I've ever felt. The breakfasts were all delicious! We were fortunate to spend four nights there and enjoy four breakfasts too. The day before you would fill out a form online picking the various breakfast items you wanted - eight entrees to choose from, plus multiple sides to choose from! The staff, Shondell and Laura, who cooked our breakfasts each morning were awesome and wonderful cooks! Jennifer was great at communicating before our stay through texts and emails. She thought of so many details to make our stay great. From the cookies on the table, the carafe of water in the minifridge (which was big enough to actually store any leftovers in), the magnifying mirror in the bathroom, the reading lights above the bed, the labels on the light switches telling you what each turned on, the flameless candles, to the huge soaking bathtub! We stayed in the Mr. & Mrs. Graves suite in the circa 1830's building. We loved our separate living room with gas fireplace which we used every night. The grounds are beautiful and well-maintained. What else could you ask for? Nothing!

We had another amazing stay at Willis Graves. We stayed in the Upstairs Cabin #2. It was nicely decorated, cozy, quiet and perfect spot for a quick getaway from home. We both agreed that their are always so many small details thought of that make the stay enjoyable and memorable. There are handmade cookies left in the room, a water carafe in the fridge. The rooms have coffee makers and a kettle for making tea. The rooms are always clean and well maintained. We have stayed at numerous bed and breakfasts over the years, but Willis Graves is the only one we have made multiple trips. We have stayed 3 times already and definitely plan to return again.The breakfast is unbeatable. I think I had the best pancakes ever on this trip. The berry parfait is also unbelievable with the homemade granola.Thanks again for the hospitality. We truly do enjoy staying here and we will look forward to our next trip up to the Cincy area.
Such a charming B & B. Our stay in the Graves Suite was delightful! Breakfast was delicious, and the staff were so friendly!

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!
Stay at Willis Graves was such a joy! We appreciated all the details and accommodations Jennifer made. The breakfasts are fabulous and delicious and just what we needed to keep us going on our vacation! Can't recommend enough!!!

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!!!

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.
