Nestled between thriving Mason and historic Lebanon on U.S. 42, this recipient of the 2013 TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence award is a 48-room, classic 1970s-style roadside motel that has been fully renovated and transformed into a country inn.  Kirkwood Inn’s updated guest rooms offer complimentary Wi-Fi access, flat screen cable TVs, luxurious duvet comforters, refrigerators, coffee makers, herbal bath amenities and more. Classically decorated rooms featuring Williamsburg-style décor and cherry furnishings pay tribute to the colonial history of the on-site Historic Kirkwood House (c. 1799), where guests enjoy a complimentary breakfast buffet each morning.

Guests step back in time and enjoy what TripAdvisor users call, “the best complimentary breakfast we have ever had,” when dining in the on-site historic home that served as a hitching post and farmhouse inn for stagecoach travelers throughout the 1800s. This delicious full, hot breakfast buffet includes biscuits and gravy; sausage, ham, or bacon; eggs; fresh fruit; country apples; Danish pastries and muffins; homemade bread pudding; oatmeal; cereal; yogurt; homemade poppy seed bread with homemade peach butter; and much more.

Spanning six scenic acres, Kirkwood Inn is also home to a charming white gazebo and brick patio, vibrant perennial garden, and wooded nature trail.

Families enjoy swimming in the spacious outdoor pool while viewing Kings Island’s breathtaking fireworks display. Couples experience a pampered night’s rest in romantic Jacuzzi-fireplace suites. With a wide variety of packages available, including tickets to Kings Island amusement park or dinner and a Broadway-style show at LaComedia Dinner Theater, Kirkwood Inn provides convenient access to a variety of local dining options and attractions.

Experience the best of both worlds at this award-winning property that TripAdvisor users write, “is a short drive to Kings Island but a world away from the hustle and bustle of the chain hotels by the interstate.” We look forward to seeing you soon.
