Break at Kenyon is a memory and March is turning Gambier upside down with its usual crazy weather so it MUST be Spring! Welcome to the home stretch of the college school year.

There are far too many events at Kenyon to list in this space. I urge you to visit their website: www.kenyon.edu to catch up with all the baseball, softball, lacrosse and track events as well as the musical, theatrical and artistic performances and exhibitions, not to mention the lectures and workshops and conferences abounding throughout the next six weeks. Here at the Bed and Breakfast, we’ve not got a moment to rest.

As of this writing, our weekends are pretty well booked up between now and the end of the school semester. You are welcome to double check in case of a vacancy and/or give us a call to be placed on the wait list. If you are a prospective family, there are plenty of weekday openings left in March and April to stay during a Kenyon visit.

And for those looking for last minute Graduation Weekend 2014 accommodations, our regrets but we’re fully committed and urge you to contact the College’s Office of Alumnae and Parent Programs for further assistance. Reunion 2014 is also booked but you can get on our wait list for any last minute cancellations.

The snow drops and aconite are showing off and the cloistered courtyard at the House has a few hardy crocus peeking out amongst the dead leaves. A friend says her pussywillows are about to bud out and the forsythia is thinking about blooming but with frigid temps yet in the forecast, I’ll believe it all when I see it.

I know Spring will be here very soon and, as usual in Gambier, it will be eyepopping. Don’t let my gloomy “let’s get on with it” attitude dissuade you from joining us for a lovely night’s stay and a delicious breakfast in the heart of Central Ohio. There’s a porch rocker (and a lap rug) waiting for you!
