Current News


Attention: If you are coming to Gambier in the next few weeks, bring your own rowboat and paddle. Just kidding, sort of. We are in the midst of what feels like 40 days of rain. The sun does break through from time to time but the rivers and streams are brimming over so, actually, don’t bring a boat as you shouldn’t be on the river right now.

Hello and welcome to summer in Gambier. Aside from the rain we are having a lovely time up here on the hill. Playwrights, writers of all ages, and older learners are among those taking over the village right now. Swim, tennis and college prep students are overrunning the Kenyon Bookstore, with weddings filling in the weekends.

The Gambier House pace is a bit slower and the rockers are a great location to watch the world go by. Remember, we’re a hop, skip and jump away from Amish Country and, once the rain stops and the river goes down, the Kokosing will be the place to be for water sports (tubing, kayaking,canoeing and fishing).

We’ve a new email address: info@gambierhouse.com. The old address still works but not for too much longer.
