Welcome to Burlington's Willis Graves Bed and Breakfast Inn!

Experience a taste of sophisticated charm and relaxed country living at the edge of this small rural Kentucky town. We encourage you to stay at our inn as part of your travel plans and to explore the town and country feel of the surrounding area. Choose between our two masterfully restored early and mid-1800s buildings: the 1850s William Rouse log cabin and the 1830s Willis Graves Federal brick homestead.

In every detail, from the luxurious whirlpool baths and steam showers to our full gourmet breakfast served on individual tables dressed in white linens, your comfort is our top priority. Our goal is to understand our guests and deliver a lasting impression that involves all five senses: the sight of unusual antiques and comfortable surroundings, the sound of soft music, the touch of plush towels, the smell of the freshly ironed sheets, and the memorable taste of homemade cookies on your pillow. From guest feedback, we know that these unique impressions keep our guests coming back time and time again.

For leisure and business travelers, our bed and breakfast's accommodations go far beyond traditional hotel lodging. Details such as triple sheeting with luxury linens, down comforters, extra pillows, robes, and towels, and complimentary water are already in place when you arrive. For your convenience, guests may also enjoy wireless high-speed Internet, cable television and DVD players, and our comprehensive movie collection.

Explore our website to learn more about our amenities and nearby attractions. Other intriguing 19th century landmarks and the "big city" lights of Cincinnati, Ohio, await you just moments away. We are located in close proximity to over sixty major corporations and are a quick 9-mile drive from the Greater Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International airport. Our pledge is to make your visit as enjoyable as possible and to help you get the rest and relaxation you need.

Food & Wine

Maybe it's the antique wooden tables dressed in white linen tablecloths, the aroma from freshly brewed French Roast coffee or possibly the soft music playing in the background - whatever the reason, breakfast at the Willis Graves Bed and Breakfast Inn is a perfect compliment to your stay.

Our guests may choose either a quick continental breakfast or a full gourmet breakfast served at individual tables. Full gourmet breakfast dishes reflect our effort to present your meal with an artistic, attractive flair and include a first course of fresh fruit and homemade granola. Our signature French Toast, made with Crème Brûlée or Orange Marmalade, is the most requested item from our menu. Breakfast can be customized to meet each guest's dietary needs and delivered to any of our suites by request.

The mix of town and country life with nearby big city attractions is an ideal alternative if you are not sure whether you want to spend all your time in a peaceful environment or on-the-go.

If activity beckons, you may want to make reservations at top-rated restaurants, symphony concerts, or Broadway Across America shows for a night on the town. We can provide a list of attractions and contact information to aid your search. Whether your group is looking for down time to connect and be pampered or a home base to explore what the Cincinnati area has to offer, our destination is an ideal site for your next gathering.
