Happy New Year! We’ve had a good holiday season at The Gambier House, surrounded by friends, family, painters, handymen and electricians. Not to worry, all is well, the planned sprucing up of the place has occurred so we are ready to greet the new year and new guests looking our best.

Winter has arrived with a vengeance; beautiful snow, not so beautiful frigid temperatures. This cold spell will soon pass but April is a long way away yet. However, Gambier is beautiful in the snow and will be bustling this month. The return of Kenyon students to a new semester means lots of things to do in the coming month.

Kenyon’s basketball teams have begun conference play. Here at the House we have a soft spot for the Ladies and wish them well with their ‘building’ season. The swim team is also busy getting ready for Nationals in March with a number of meets, including one at home at the end of January. Other events of note are an upcoming lecture by herbalist/author Paul Strauss, discussions in honor of MLK day, the Angela Waite student concert weekend and faculty art exhibits. More information on these events and more can be found at kenyon.edu.

Wishing everyone a healthy and happy 2015. Remember, there’s a porch rocker waiting for you here in Gambier.

The 2015 Family Weekend lottery is open.  We are currently accepting entries for next October’s lottery. Please follow the link below to enter. Remember, only one entry per family. The drawing will take place in June — one room per family — and we contact only the winners.

We take reservations up to one year in advance (except for Parent and Graduation Weekends).

Graduation weekend rooms are secured ONLY by way of a lottery that requires previous stays. Don’t wait until Senior year to experience the charm of The Gambier House and get in on this special lottery. Graduation 2015 is fully booked.
