Greetings from The Gambier House!
If we can really call this winter here in the heart of Ohio? Yes, there has been some snow and some frigid days but el nino is treating us very kindly so far. Which is all to the good as there is much going on now that Kenyon’s 2nd semester has begun.
Senior Swim weekend has come and gone but there are more sporting events on the horizon with the basketball teams in full swing and lacrosse to begin by the end of February. In addition, there are plenty of plays, concerts and speakers to keep you entertained and educated during these cold months.
Amish country is just up the road and the Kokosing Gap Trail knows no season. Of late we’ve seen bluebirds, woodpeckers and a Cooper’s hawk while traversing the Trail. The Kokosing River is facinating at this time of year — half frozen and half running — just have a care how you see it.
Windows, beds and refrigerators have been spruced up at the House and we’re looking forward to having you stay, whether you are looking for local color or are visiting The College.
Hope you’ll join us: the porch rockers may be a bit chilly but the fireplaces are ready to go. See you soon.
E.J. Heer, Innkeeper
