The fabulous 4th has come and gone and we are now hip deep into the lazy hazy days of summer. Currently fighting weeds and deer for control of our gardens.

Before we know it, August will be here and the Village and House will be full of cyclists and then Kenyon students returning or beginning their college sojourn. Before that, as is our custom here at the House, we’ll be closed until July 28th for a little RandR. By the end of the month we’ll be back at the helm, refreshed and ready to take on the new school year.

The first part of August has many vacancies as of this writing. Aside from Pelotonia weekend, we have rooms available most days. Kenyon begins to wake from its summer nap around the 12th of the month as the sports teams begin to arrive. At this point we are taking a wait list for Freshman Orientation weekend (8/22-23). Other nights leading up to and away from that weekend have spotty availability.

It is hard to think about the while wallowing in the Kokosing River — great for kayaking and tubing — watching the day lillies bloom and the zucchini grow and grow and grow! Please consider us as a cycling and water sport destination. We’re just up the hill from the Kokosing Gap Bike Trail and the Kokosing scenic river.

After July 28th there’s a porch rocker waiting for you!

The 2014 Family Weekend lottery is closed.  The room drawing has occurred and only the winners have been notified. Thank you for playing. 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).

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.

Currently, we are taking a wait list for Reunion 2015.  Please call or email us with your contact information to get on the list.
