Cincy Chic: Tell us more about Sweetspire Ranch!
Pat Gorman, Owner of Sweetspire Ranch: Sweetspire Ranch is the newest country chic wedding venue and Bed & Breakfast in the Cincinnati area. A charming 25-acre working horse ranch with a large ranch house, barns, pastures, ponds, trails and nature abounding.

It has been our home for the last twenty-seven years where we have enjoyed our children, grandchildren, horses, dogs, cats and chickens. The time has come for us to share what our family and visitors have enjoyed these many years.

Cincy Chic: Who’s behind the ranch?
Gorman: Myself, Pat Gorman, and my husband Hearsel. We have been happily married for 47 years and we have decided to share our family home of 27 years. We look forward to hosting weddings where couples are just starting out on their own journeys. Our wish is that every couple married at Sweetspire Ranch enjoys a long, happy marriage as we have.

Sweetspire Ranch offers beautiful views of nature.

Cincy Chic: Where can we find Sweetspire Ranch?
Gorman: Sweetspire Ranch is located east of Cincinnati at 4632 Ross Road in Batavia, Ohio.  Just minutes from I-275 and Route 32 off the Olive Branch Stonelick Exit.
