I had the opportunity to spend the night of September 14th at this exquisite inn. The innkeepers Nancy and Bob indulged me and provided outstanding service. They are among the top innkeepers I've had the pleasure to meet. They offered suggestions for dinning how to get the the closest Graeter's (my favorite ice cream shop). Breakfast was outstanding and they...

We always read the reviews and ALWAYS have our own thoughts on the various places. The Willis Graves B & B IS a 4 STAR place- without a doubt. Beautifully restored with all the "modern" bells and whistles. Steam shower, tv, wifi, jacuzzi bath and gourmet breakfast. Quiet area too-so you can actually get some sleep. The only "down side"...

We stayed in the Rouse retreat at Burlington Willis and loved every second. The room was spacious and the bathroom was to die for. The warm cookies and espresso were such a treat. We loved the mix of rustic and contemporary in the cabin. Breakfast was wonderful, with lots of options! Our only regret is staying for only 1 night....

Nancy and Bob made our 5th wedding anniversary a truly memorable experience! We were delighted with the log cabin retreat (second floor): a fantastic restoration project that perfectly balances rusticity, comfort, elegance and functionality. The crème brûlée French toast and lemon waffles we had for breakfast were nothing short than heavenly. Nancy and Bob are also exquisite hosts: they bend...

We stayed here in the smallest room (only one available at last minute) last year for our anniversary, and liked it so much we came back for our anniversary again this year, opting to book earlier and get the William Rouse retreat (2nd floor of separate cabin). I worried this room might have too low of ceilings for my 6'...

We have stayed in many b&b's and this is at the top of the list. We stayed in the second floor of the log cabin. It's a beautiful space and well crafted. All details are thought out from quality of pillows to colors of finishes. Many log cabins can be dark and dingy. Not this one, it's delightful. The food...

My husband and I spent a lovely Valentine's weekend with another couple at this charming B&B. We were treated to many delights, including a nice tour of the property, cookies waiting for us in the room, a hot cup of espresso, and the amazing breakfast in the morning. It was a perfect escape from the long winter of Ohio. We...

No compromise for the highest satisfaction of hospitality for their guests at the Willis Graves Bed & Breakfast in Burlington, Ky. Bob & Nancy's attention to detail, very cordial welcome, and wonderful personalities make you feel as though you've known them your entire life. Having stayed three nights, the luxurious robes we discovered to relax in, enjoy the gas fire...

No matter how much anyone writes there are no words that can do justice to an experience at Willis Graves Bed and Breakfast. Previously we had been to a place in Gatlinburg TN, which was amazing but for this getaway I wanted something a bit closer to home, thank goodness for my lack of desire to drive! We stayed in...
