This beautifully renovated 1874 Colonial is located in historic Peninsula and offers the best of the past and the present. We are nestled deep in the heart of the scenic Cuyahoga Valley National Park, which means the serenity and grandeur of nature is right at your doorstep!


Upon arrival, open the french doors of “The Blue Hen” and walk into the double parlor of this charming retreat. Select one of the four, uniquely beautiful, specially designed bedrooms. Each bedroom has its own private, impeccably clean, and modern bathroom.

Utilize the full, modern kitchen to prepare home cooked meals and enjoy them in the elegant dining room or out on the veranda shaded by wisteria flowers.

Rest your weary body in one of the soft leather armchairs in the sitting room after a day of hiking the trails or biking the towpath. Sunbathe out on the lawn or have a picnic on the beautiful grounds. Settle in for the evening and select a good book or board game from The Hen’s collection, or watch TV or surf the internet.

You will find every room in The Blue Hen, including the bathrooms and kitchen, impeccably clean and sanitary, professionally cleaned after every guest.

Stroll right down the sidewalk to downtown Peninsula and explore this quintessential “one stoplight town”. After you hike the trails, bike the towpath, or ski at Boston Mills to your hearts content, take in some live music at the intimate GAR music hall, enjoy a tasty breakfast, lunch or dinner at Fisher’s Cafe, take an art class at the Peninsula Art Academy, check out the gourmet popcorn shop or enjoy a craft beer and wings at the Winking Lizard.


Even more options await you a short drive or Uber away. Head west and within a 10 minute drive you will find a Buddhist, Sikh, and Hindu Temple. Visit all three to find inner peace and a spiritual calm to balm your hectic daily life. Stop at Country Made Ice Cream for the best ice cream anywhere, or take a quick dip in The Quarry, a unique, natural swimming hole right down the road from The Blue Hen.

Go east and in 10 minutes you will be in the town of Hudson, which has excellent renowned restaurants, a Heinens grocery store, and a wide variety of shops. You will find everything from women’s high fashion clothing to a charming old bookstore to a classic board games shop. You will also find a gastric pub and an exceptional wine cellar restaurant.

Drive north and in two miles you will be able to enjoy skiing, snowboarding, and tubing at Boston Mills / Brandywine Ski Resort.

Head south and in 12 minutes you will find Hale Farm and Village, as well as Blossom Music Center where you can hear a variety of musical artists, including the world renowned Cleveland Orchestra. Drive a little further to experience the impressive Stan Hewet Hall.

Peninsula is truly a destination you will want to explore year after year, and we hope that you will allow us to host your amazing experience in the Valley!

Please Note: The Inn at Blue Hen Falls is strictly an inn – not a bed and breakfast. As such, you will always find plenty of complimentary coffee, tea and condiments in the kitchen, but we do not serve breakfast.
