Nothing was lacking during our stay. We stayed in both rooms in the cabin. It was clean, comfy, spacious, and had all of the comforts and amenities we needed. It is so nicely decorated. The beds are comfortable and the showers are hot! The breakfast in the mornings were delicious! It really was a fabulous stay. I enjoyed the little touches. The landscaping was beautiful. Cookies were in the room for us. The rooms came with espresso coffee machines and there were creamers in the refrigerator. There were s’more packs for the fire pit. Shampoo, conditioner, and hairdryers were provided. You could control the thermostat. We loved every minute of our stay. My friends and I will return. Jennifer is a wonderful host.

We stayed in the Mrs Graves suite. We especially liked the steam shower and also the jetted tub. The "sitting area" with a fireplace was so welcome on a cold Feb. night. Although we only spent one night, it was a great getaway.

I've stayed at Willis Graves several times over the past 14 years, but my recent visit was the first since Jennifer became proprietor. I LOVE what she's done! This B&B still has all of its charm, but the little additions she's made - seamless check-in, fire pit, back patio and the Garden Cottage - make it even cozier and more relaxing. In fact, I was so grateful for the Garden Cottage and its availability the week between Christmas and New Years; it's the only reason I felt safe making the trip to visit family for the holidays this year. And I can't say enough about breakfast. WOW! Choosing the meal each morning was difficult because everything sounded appealing. It was all incredible....especially the Winter Parfait "appetizer" (homemade yogurt, cranberry-apple-mandarin orange compote, granola). It alone was so filling, I could barely finish the main course (and often didn't....which my nephew appreciated). I am already thinking about my next trip to northern Kentucky and another stay - when the weather is a bit warmer and COVID restrictions may be relaxed - to take advantage of everything Willis Graves now offers.

Hi Amy Thank you for choosing Willis Graves for your family holiday vacation. I mentioned your name to Nancy and she remembered your mom and you immediately. She said to send you her best wishes. I hope one day I will get to meet your mom and have a conversation without masks! Thank you for your very kind words. Jennifer

I wanted to leave my condo. I wanted to go somewhere where someone would cook for me. It took me less than 30 minutes to drive to Willis Graves, but it took me a world away. The room was spotless, and that's coming from someone who walks around barefoot and does yoga on the floor--I tend to see what gets missed. The bed was cozy and the bathtub was heavenly and just when I thought it couldn't get any better, they brought me my breakfast. And don't get me started on their homemade chocolate chip cookies...

When I travel, my favorite places to stay in are bed and breakfasts. I love the atmosphere and the service given. When I am in Kentucky, visiting my family, I stay at Willis Graves Bed and Breakfast. It is beautiful, the hospitality is exceptional and Jennifer, the Innkeeper, cook and owner dies not disappoint.
