FALL 2016

Greetings from The Gambier House.  September went by in the blink of an eye and here we are at Family Weekend and the middle of October.

There are still rooms available for the last two weekends in October and for dates in November as well…come up and see the beauty of Knox County in the fall!

To catch up: Middle Path in the Village center is open for business and strolling and we’re so glad to have it back; the Old Bank building is gone and a hole in the ground awaits the construction of a new market/dorm building; the weather has begun to have that fall chill in the air; the leaves are late in changing, which means there’s more time to leaf peep in Gambier this month.

The jam has been made and we’re all done with local summer produce but we’ve got local fruits frozen for some special appearances during the cold months.  The local apples are going strong and that’s a great thing.

As always, Amish country is just up the road, the Kokosing Gap Trail is down the hill and there are many great walks to be found throughout the area.

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

E.J. Heer and Pogo, Innkeepers



The 2017 Family Weekend lottery will open on January 1, 2017.   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).

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.
