First Farm Inn, a renovated 1870’s farmhouse on 20 acres, is set just off Cincinnati’s belt line offering all the amenities of country living. Surrounded by pasture populated with a colorful assortment of friendly horses, the inn’s spacious rooms have queen-sized beds and private baths. Bountiful homemade breakfast options vary from traditional breakfast casseroles to pasta carbonara or Swiss Rosti. Filled with original art, each room will inspire your creativity to integrate your family history and the things you love into your home.
Hang out at the farm, rock on the porch, watch the sunset from the outdoor hot tub, swing and sip wine, play with the cats and dog, or paddle around the pond. Ride the friendly horses during a two-hour session that will help you gain confidence with big animals at whatever speed you’re comfortable. Help groom, tack up and really learn to communicate with your new equine friend.
Midweek, multi-day discounts available Sun-Thurs.

We moved to the Greater Cincinnati region in October 1997 with our then 2-year-old to start First Farm Inn. A computer programmer, Dana commutes to the city each day but occasionally entertains with the keyboard or grand piano. Guests may get to see and hear him in a musical with one of the community theaters.
Never anticipating having an entire herd of horses, we listened to guests' requests to ride. After seeing how animal-loving, intelligent people who thought they knew how to ride horses rode, Jen began learning how to teach and evaluating riding disciplines.
Largely self taught by riding bareback on untrained horses, Jen has created a riding experience that includes getting acquainted with the horses from the ground during grooming, practicing balance and control, then actually riding our horses like they were your own. (We learned shortly after acquiring multiple horses that Dana is extremely allergic, as he is to Odo, our border collie and most of the kitties....)
Our son Ty is now living in the tiny house to help out with critter feeding and room cleaning.
