Greetings from The Gambier House.  The  17-year cicadas have come and gone (only a few carcasses tell their tale) and we are in the midst of a hazy, hot and humid summer.  The fabulous Gambier 4th of July parade and picnic was still fabulous despite relocation to the train at the Kokosing Gap Trail.  This due to the other confusion in the Village…Kenyon’s reconstruction of Middle Path in the Village center.

Strawberry season has passed and the jam will happen soon, but blueberries are abundant and many are in the freezer awaiting winter baking projects. Our vegetable garden has been planted and we’ll looking forward to late summer bounty in the breakfast frittata!

As mentioned, Middle Path is a war zone of construction so the campus isn’t quite as pretty as usual and getting around can be a bit of a challenge.  The work goes apace and we are hopeful about the return of parking spaces soon.

Our summer weekends are booked pretty much through the beginning of August (this is a BIG year for weddings at The Gambier House).  Weekdays have much wider availability, so do think about that midweek cycling or kayaking getaway, not to mention the college visiting.

As always, Amish country is just up the road, the Kokosing Gap Trail is down the hill and floating season on the Kokosing River has begun (I’ve been once but am eager for more).

We hope you’ll join us on a porch rocker, they are ready for you.

The 2016 Family Weekend lottery closed on June 1st.  The drawing will take place on or about June 15th — one room per family — and we contact only the winners. Should you not be one of the lucky 6 winners, we hope you will find another occasion to visit Kenyon and choose the Gambier House for your accommodations. We take reservations up to one year in advance (except for Parent and Graduation Weekends).  Keep your eyes open to this space in December for Family Weekend 2017.

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 2017 is fully booked.

Currently, we are taking a wait list for Reunion 2017.  Please call or email us with your contact information to get on the list.
