Description

Circa 1870. The rolling hills of Kentucky are home to a historic farm house on 21 acres. Set atop a hill and shaded by large maple trees, guests are treated to fresh country breezes as the inn rarely needs air conditioning. A fire in the wood stove makes for a cozy family room on chilly evenings. Two guest rooms feature queen beds and private baths. The tall windows in the 1870s guest room highlight views of the neighboring pasture while the Treetops room boasts additional sleeping space on a daybed with a trundle. Breakfasts include a hearty entrée of whole wheat biscuits with sausage gravy, breakfast casserole, or even pasta carbonara topped with bacon and eggs. Guests can settle around the grand piano, relax in the hot tub under the stars, cast a line for fish in the pond, or take riding lessons on the farm’s horses. Downtown Cincinnati is 30 minutes away.

Romantic Interest

We are quiet and private, in the country at the end of a dead-end road with only two guest rooms. First Farm Inn offers lots of undisturbed spaces to snuggle with your significant other — the hammmock, porch swing, sunset swing, paddle boat, row boat, etc. We provide corkscrews and wine glasses to toast in the hot tub or in your room after your massages. Special requests and engagement surprises enabled if at all possible. Check out our page of romantic surprise ideas.

What's Green About Your Inn

First Farm Inn has been an environmentally responsible or "green hotel" since its founding -- long before it was a trendy internet marketing technique. Perhaps the most green lodging in Cincinnati, our family-owned business reduces its environmental impact by using natural products, limiting chemical use, recycling everything recyclable and more. Living in harmony with nature and preserving the environment are ways we can safeguard the planet for future generations. Reducing the amount you "consume" and eliminating waste will set a good example to others and give value to your life.

Pastrami Cheese Ball

This is a nice red and green for Christmas parties. It goes together quickly and can be eaten immediately but it’s nice if the flavors have at least a few hours in the fridge to meld. You can roll it in nuts or parsley if you want, or add parsley to it


Garlic-Herb Boursin Cheese

Enjoy the health benefits of garlic and the taste of herbs with the easy spread.


Wonderful Easy Spinach

Tatiana, when she was 2, easily ate 1/4 of this. We never have any left over with the three of us. It’s a wonderful dish for pregnant women and anyone else who needs iron in their diet.


Tilapia Veracruz

If you’re a Midwesterner afraid to cook with fish, like I was, start with this recipe. It’s amazingly tasty and easy, despite a lot of ingredients. Capers are found near olives in the grocery store.


Cherry-Rhubarb Delight

This serves 8-10, although the original recipe said it would serve 15. Everyone wants seconds. We took it to a dinner party with 8 moderate-sized people and there was none left over.


Lemon Coffee Cake

The first time I tried this a girlfriend and I ate the entire 9 x 13 cakse in 3 days...I substituted the juices to increase its nutritional value.


Flexible Quiche

A great way to make little bits of left overs into a tasty meal. Experiment, this is something you just about can\'t go wrong with.

Loved our get-away here!

My husband and I stayed 3 nights at the First Farm Inn and hated to leave. It's such a relaxing and peaceful environment, and the breakfasts are superb! Jen provides healthy options that are truly delicious and unique. The purpose for our visit was to go to the Creation Museum (VERY close), and the Ark Encounter (45 min. drive). We also enjoyed a number of delicious restaurants in nearby Lawrenceburg, IN and highly recommend both LaRosa's Italian & Pizzeria & Acapulco Mexican Restaurant. We didn't take advantage of the horse rides, or hot tub, but we thoroughly enjoyed interacting with the horses and other animals there. Lovely place that we would definitely visit again if in that area.

Thank you so much for making our first-time experience so great. We won’t be so afraid to try again. Breakfast was delicious along with time of sharing with you. Our bedroom and bath were really comfy and homey. We appreciate your hard work and hospitality.

great sanctuary

“We love it here! What a great sanctuary from the hectic chaos of life. We enjoyed the morning sitting on the porch having our quiet time with God watching the rain move in. Odo was a wonderful playmate! We loved kicking him the ball & he did all the work of getting it back to us! He was patiently persistent and so easy to want to please. Thanks for opening your home – the cultural instruments were fun. Breakfast was amazing! So delicious! We truly appreciate your hospitality!”

Spring in Kentucky's emerald hills

“After a long year in the confines of a cold and ice-bound city, to come to the rolling emerald hills of Kentucky was a wonderful respite. We will long carry the treasured memories of Southern genteel hospitality, fine fare and the gentle rest of comfortable friends and being surrounded by quiet beauty. While we did not on this stay get to partake in all the treasures of the inn, we will most assuredly return to allow the equine beauty to bear our weary souls over the countryside.”

Rainbow stay

Thank you for a lovely visit and for opening your home. The room has been wonderful (even when we lost power – that should be an entire extra charge!) I have THOROUGHLY enjoyed the porch swing and hammock! While, I’d love to embrace more days relaxing, reading and writing notes, I have a heart that is full of both happy memories and an energized spirit. I leave First Farm Inn feeling PEACE! The breakfasts were delicious, too. Boy do you know how to make an impression! From where I stand you ARE a rainbow!

7 stars from Maggie

I wanted to thank you so much for a great stay with my daughter Maggie. It will be a daddy daughter stay she (we) will always remember. You knowledge of horses and gentle teaching style was wonderful to see. Maggie can not stop talking about it!! You will like this, we were looking at your site on Facebook, Maggie asked about what the star! While rankings mean on the internet and I told 5 stars is the best you can get. I then asked her how she would rate her stay with you and Dana. She said "7 stars". I told her, 5 is the best you can give. She then said " if 5 is the best I definitely would give them a 7" Guess that sums it up:-)

Mom & Son Horsey Getaway

“My son and I died and went to heaven! We came here for a spring break getaway. We both love horses. We enjoyed the horse grooming, riding experience. Jen is very knowledgeable. She helped me feel comfortable riding when I had not been on a horse for many years. Her home is clean, inviting, lovely. Our breakfast was fabulous. My son and I loved our ‘quality time’ here. I will definitely be back.”

Lovely

Thank you for sharing your lovely home away from home with us. The animals and atmosphere were lovely. We enjoyed the trails, the time in the barn and in the hot tub as well as the terrific breakfasts. Attention to small details –like Jan’s diet Pepsi fetish and night lights on after dark were most noticed. We will tell our friends about the place and try to make it back to First Farm during next year’s Rolex.” Allison A.

Our time together with Dana and Jen was so special! They were so real and open with us yet let us have space. Their home was so welcoming. Thanks you guys!” Sugar Grove, IL

Great Trip!

Day 1 Sweet and easy check-in! We love the grounds, room and cats! Beautiful weather, wine and cheese on the deck (go to Findlay Market if you have the time!) Relaxation at the nearby casino. Day 2: Best day yet. Quick trip to Rabbit Hash (90 minutes) before riding Bode. Really fun time and we went at our own speed. Then off to the Wolf Habitat...Awesome! Brought some carrots for the horses and fed them. Hot tub, movie, wine/cheese, hot tub, bed. Completely relaxed Sunday morning. Great trip, great people, and things to do!

Our First B&B in the States

This was our first B&B experience in the States & it was great! The kids loved all the animals and the farm, playing soccer with Odo and riding the horses -- you even got me to ride a horse again when I didn't plan to. Breakfast was yummy too! It was great swinging in the swing and hammock and soaking in the hot tub. I think it's safe to say our mufti-generational family all loved it and meeting all of you!

A breath of fresh air

Breakfast was plentiful, delicious, and even healthy! First Farm Inn is located close enough to the major cities that its location is convenient, but far enough out that you don't experience the noise and bustle of city life. The family is welcoming, but not intrusive. I found the bed to be a little too hard for me, but my husband said he slept well.

One of the best

I contacted Jen and told her I was homeschooling my teenage son and looking to have horseback riding lessons and a lesson on the care of horses. She was very accommodating to our needs. We had a wonderful stay in the Treetop Room. The breakfasts were out of this world. We loved meeting all the animals on the farm. My son wanted to take some of them home. My son agreed with me that he would like to come back again.

Great start to a long road trip

We had a great stay at the beginning of a long road trip - Jen is a fantastic host, the horses are lovely (and so much fun to ride), the food delicious, and the room was very comfortable. And a hot tub before hitting the road again was perfect. We will definitely be back!

Relaxing place. Good breakfasts. Very Close to Interstate and great selection of restaurants nearby. Jen and Dana are excellent hosts. Love their dog. Lots to do nearby.

First Farm Inn family review

This is one of the few bed and breakfasts that allowed us to come with our young son (7 yrs.). We have stayed here twice and it is like visiting extended family. Last December (2012), I called Jen to let her know we would be arriving very late. She said she would leave the door unlocked and would get our beds ready. When we arrived, we let ourselves in, locked the door behind us, and fell into the sleep-ready beds. You sure can\'t do that at a hotel! It was just wonderful!!! Beyond that, breakfasts were yummy and healthy, the animals sweet, and our Christmas stuff was very safe in our vehicle. Oh, I almost forgot...Jen mailed our son's hat back to us. We didn't even realize it was gone. How thoughtful!

InnSide Tip - Stay longer
If you like horses at all, you should stay long enough to ride one.

A Lovely Retreat

My husband & I had a very relaxing stay at First Farm Inn. The sweet kitty cats were an added bonus! I rode a horse for the first time in ten years and had a wonderful experience.

Animal lovers dream

Lovely peaceful home with lots of cats, horses and one crazy dog. Breakfast was fabulous. Room was nice with private bath. Owners were very nice and easy to talk to. Location is very convenient and not too far from Cincinnati. Hope to go back someday.

Perfect Place for Our Vacation

You have a beautiful home. Thank you for opening it up to John & I. It was wonderful to stay at such a peaceful place away from the city. The breakfast was scrumptious and the trail ride made4 for a great day activity. We loved the animals and playing fetch with Odo. I wanted to plan a quiet, relaxing getaway for my husband and I and I think this was the perfect place for our vacation...”

We will be back

What a wonderful relaxing few days! Jen was the perfect hostess and a great breakfast cook – we did not need lunch the whole time because the breakfasts were so delicious & filling. We really enjoyed the horse rides with Sam and Tommy and Jen riding Bode! Jen is an awesome instructor – I learned a lot in a few days. We will be back

Perfect 3-Day Getaway

We appreciated the hospitality, friendliness & atmosphere of First Farm Inn. The home, grounds, people & animals are first-rate! Oh, the breakfasts also. Jen’s riding instructions & leadership helped we novices feel like horse people. The grooming & handling the tack was as much fun as riding. Perfect weather helped, but this was a perfect 3-day getaway in the spring. May God bless the First Farm family & future occupants to the 1870s room.”

This place is like heaven on earth for horse and cat lovers! We have absolutely loved our stay here. Sage is my absolute favorite horse I have ever ridden! Such a beautiful horse! Your hospitality has been outstanding and the breakfasts are incredible. Thank you for a wonderful weekend.” Don’t know how you get it all done! The flowers, decorating, food were outstanding. Thanks so much for a memorable, relaxing, wonderful weekend. First Farm is definitely and appropriately named...wishing to return...”

A Lasting Memory

“As someone who has traveled a lot through my life, I find it rare to find a place I’m not eager to leave when it’s time to go home. Here, I feel I could happily stay as long as I was able. It has been a true pleasure. Thank you for providing this wonderful getaway. You and your home will be a lasting memory and stand out in my mind from the so many bland memories I’ve had from my travels.”

Great Ladies Getaway

“Thank you for hosting our ladies weekend away! It was so fun and relaxing to come here with all the comforts of home and then some! This was a weekend of many ‘firsts’ for us – horseback riding for two of us, the hot-tub outdoors in winter for one of us, shopping at Jungle Jim’s for two of us, the wonderful massages for one of us, getting away without the kids for one of us, the list could go on and on!”

Back Again

“We just wanted you to know how very much we enjoyed staying in your home. We came last year and had such a nice time, our kids gave us a visit for this year also. We don’t travel much, but I will never want to stay in a motel again after experiencing the hospitality and cleanliness of a Bed and Breakfast. Your breakfasts are absolutely wonderful! I’m sure you’ll see us again.”

Fantastic

“What can you say? What a great place. Small town feel with big city living. So close to the main stream but yet so far away. The hot tub is what the Dr. ordered. What a great and relaxing place. I know we have to return to the north and back to the real world until next time. Keep your place as it is – fantastic…”

Hate to Leave

“Beautiful, wonderful, amazing God has blessed you with a wonderful gift. We can’t thank you enough for sharing it with us. Our three days here has been amazing. The hot tub was the first wonderful thing we were able to experience since we arrived so late in the day. Then the sun came up and oh the breakfast was amazing…The second day the same thing, but to top that off was the horseback riding. What a wonderful feeling it was to get ‘back in the saddle.’ Your hospitality was above anything I could every wish for. The time we got to spend here with our friends from Indiana was truly a gift from above. I hate to leave. I know we will be back! Your cooking – as everyone else has said, is awesome. Thank you, thank you for opening up your home.”

Amazing Weekend

“Thank you for such an amazing weekend. Your patience with us was greatly appreciated as you taught us about horses. We learned so much! Your breakfasts were sumptuous, esp. the caramel walnut French toast!!! That was unexpectedly delicious and worth making again and again. We loved all the cats, but Monkey was our favorite and Odo is so much fun. Your hospitality is unmatched! Thank you for being so welcoming.”

The Best B&B we've ever stayed in

Thanks for making our 45th anniversary celebration so perfect! Coupled with our visit to the Creation Museum, our stay at First Farm was such a blessing in every way – beautiful room (and house, great food, enjoyable hosts – and Tatiana’s superb musical talents) and fun conversations. We loved it all. Thanks for being the best B&B we’ve ever stayed in.”

Gracious hospitality is alive and well “chez voris!” We fell like we have “kissed the wings of a butterfly” during our two night stay! Thank you for your delicious breakfasts, genuine conversations and peaceful surroundings! My husband prefers the country – no question about that!

Want to return here and to Kentucky

“We are very thankful to have been able to stay here at the First Farm Inn. Your kindness to extend extra time helpins us find places to see has been a blessing. We also thank you for a clean, beautiful and comfortable place to stay. The whole family enjoyed the swings and your farm. The breakfasts were also delicious and we appreciated the turkey. Thank you for our special treatment. The children felt right at home which isn’t always the way things go when we travel. We all will want to return here and to Kentucky. The fresh flowers and live animals were a balm and brought joy to our stay. We like LIVE creations! Until we meet again, our prayer is that God will continue to bless your family’s property.”

Breakfast alone is worth the cost

“We enjoyed watching a DVD each evening. You have a great selection of DVDs. The shower is large enough to play soccer in. The breakfast alone is worth the cost of admission. All the animals were friendly and very enjoyable. This is a great location since it’s only 5 minutes from 275. Your hospitality is really a gift. A wonderful place to stay.”

“We had an absolutely amazing time! Thank you so much for your hospitality. You have a beautiful home with so many wonderful animals. We had such a great time that we decided to get engaged. Thank you again for making this occasion so amazing and a memory that will last forever. Thank you so much for the great experience. It was completely unexpected when Jordan asked me to marry him. I didn’t think the day could get any better after the horseback ride and the beautiful countryside. I look forward to bringing our kids here in the near future!!”

Mini Art Museum

“We enjoyed our stay so much – great food, fine music by Tatiana on the holiday morning was a delightful surprise, and Odo, the stress reliever. Our riding time and lessons will carry us down the road a bit safer with our horse encounters. I love the art your home is filled with – a mini museum!

Attention to detail

“Thank you for sharing your lovely home away from home with us. The animals and atmosphere were lovely. We enjoyed the trails, the time in the barn and in the hot tub as well as the terrific breakfasts. Attention to small details –like Jan’s diet Pepsi fetish and night lights on after dark were most noticed. We will tell our friends about the place and try to make it back to First Farm during next year’s Rolex.”

“This is the second and hopefully not the last time we’ve visited First Farm. The hospitality is superb and the breakfast so yummy. (Jen makes the prep look so easy, but “people of the kitchen” know it’s talent & organization!) Riding Ginger, Sunny, Blue & Missy and this time Bode and Tommy was amazing. Jen is a great riding teacher. What a pleasurable time. Thanks.” Sombra, ONT, Canada

Exactly what I needed

This trip was exactly what I needed. Our room was just perfect – the homecooked breakfasts tasty & filling (freshly brewed coffee from an avowed tea drinker!) The horses, the kitties and Odo – God’s creatures all gathered here in this wonderfully warm and friendly farm. Jen – your artwork has inspired me to “make time.” Thank you so much.”

“What a nice “get away” this was for us. We love it all – from the beautiful and warm surroundings, the peace and quiet (no more fireworks), the pleasure of your company each morning, and tips on where to go for a good meal at night. The food was excellent! Thanks for sharing your recipes! We’ll be back. P.S. We will miss playing ball with Odo and petting all the kitties.”

“Such a relaxing time. It began as 1-2 days, but we stayed for three. We celebrated our 32nd anniversary week here on the farm. What a delight! Food was the Best! I enjoyed learning about and caring for horses followed by the daily ride with Jen and other guests.

Renewing, refreshing, repeating

We originally contracted for a 3-night stay but enjoyed ourselves so much, we added a night! Close to many attractions--go to the Cincinnati Observatory, the Conservatory at Eden Park and Jungle Jim's. Definitely worth your time. but it was the quiet serenity of the farm itself, with its many animals, beautiful scenery, and clean comfortable rooms, as well as Jen and Dana's detailed attention to our comfort that really made our stay. Breakfasts were plentiful and filling, the horseback riding was a soul-lifting bonus, and soccer with Odo kept us active! All in all, highly recommended.
