First Farm Inn
Kentucky's Bed and Breakfast for people and horses.
Convenience and comfort at First Farm Inn.
Two miles off I-275 Cincinnati's beltline, First Farm Inn offers two bed and breakfast rooms in a historic 1870s farm home. Our 21 acres are set in Kentucky's rolling hills above the Ohio River where Indiana, Kentucky and Ohio join.
Relax under the open sky in the hot tub, fish in the pond, catch a rainbow from the stained glass windows, listen to rain on the tin roof, meet the alien in the kitchen, watch the lava lamp move, warm up beside the fireplace, or visit with the horses and neighborhood cows and goats.
Trade secrets on the porch swing (a good place for proposals), hike the hills, explore the barns, paddle around the pond or track down the spring that feeds the creek. Rock and read on the veranda or stretched out in the hammock hung between huge maples in the front yard.
Play the grand piano or sit back and enjoy Dana or Tatiana's practices. Relax the old fashioned way with a wide assortment of card and board games or jigsaw puzzles
A half-hour away, downtown Cincinnati offers all the variety and excitement of a big city art museum, professional sports, botanical gardens, zoo and more. Newport on the Levee dinning and entertainment district is also a half hour away. Indiana's riverboat casinos and Perfect North Ski Resort are 10-20 minutes west.
First Farm Inn's spacious and attractive rooms have queen-sized beds with private baths. Baths are accessible from inside the room.
Rooms are furnished with wi-fi, phones, TV/VCR/DVD/CD players, chairs, lamps, dressers, blinds, oversize cotton bath sheets, quality linens, hairdryers, irons, ironing boards, ceiling fans, extra pillows, wine glasses, bottle openers, assortments of scented soaps, shampoos and extras of any toiletries you many have forgotten. A large video collection is available for guests use.
The house is air conditioned, although it is seldom needed with shade from the huge maples and top-of-the-hill breezes. The wood stove in the family room has a crackling fire most chilly evenings.
The downstairs 1870s room has tall windows overlooking the neighbor's pasture, a matching antique oak bedroom set that has been in Jen's family for four generations and quilts made by our great grandmothers.
The spacious upstairs Treetops room, perfect for a family or girlfriends getaway. It features a queen bed, day bed and trundle, a cathedral ceiling and big two-part bath with oversized shower. Shade from the 200 year old maples and breezes from the open windows combined with the spring green color and floral linens give the feel of sleeping in the treetops.
Prices include a bountiful breakfast for two and use of the outdoor hot tub.
Children, friends or pets sharing your room are a little extra per night. Well mannered kids and pets have a great time here. It is not safe to let undisciplined children run wild on a farm or in a house furnished with antiques and art glass.
Please call between 8 a.m. and 8 p.m. Checkout time is 11 a.m. Check in is 3-8 p.m. Exceptions made upon request. We don't allow indoor smoking. Ashtrays are on the porch, patio & deck.
Our cancellation policy is refunded if rebooked. That means you share the risk of leaving the room empty if you change your mind. A booking is a commitment we keep to you, turning away others who would like to come on that date. Unlike big hotels, we cannot absorb late cancellations.
Guests tell us our bountiful, low fat, healthy breakfast is the best they've ever had at B&Bs around the world, that First Farm Inn rosti is better than it is in Switzerland and that our Pasta Carbonara is better than in Italian restaurants.
We serve family style, passing dishes as long as you're hungry. Guests choose from a variety of unusual and creative menus or as well as old favorites. Let us know if you prefer a special menu - vegetarian. low fat, low sodium, etc. We usually eat around 9, but adapt to guest preferences and schedules as much as possible.
Horsemanship Lessons Available
Friendly horses of assorted colors and breeds offer noses to pet and eagerly take carrots and apples from outstretched hands. During the two-hour horsemanship experience, you'll learn grooming basics and help tack up.
We help you mount and fit the saddle to you before heading to the riding arena where we work on becoming the horse's leader and communicating when we want stops, starts and turns.
Then we head for the hills, along the ponds and through the woods to see what kinds of farm animals, birds and wildlife we can find. The experience ends with removing tack, feeding treats and bathing or grooming, depending on the weather and the day's schedule.
Please let us know if you weigh over 225 pounds as horses should only carry 20 percent of their body weight. Anyone who is fearful may be led on horseback. Riding is physically strenuous and requires good posture, balance, concentration, thoughtfulness and the ability to listen.
Even the quietest horses can be unpredictable. By coming to the farm, you accept responsibility and all liability for your experience on the ground or riding. Please arrange riding in advance. You may bring carrots or apples as treats if you'd like. Overnight boarding is available.
