Happy New Year and Greetings from The Gambier House.   Gambier is in winter sleep mode with Kenyon students not scheduled to return until January 14th.  Various sporting events will take place during the down time so check the College event calendar and give us a call if you’d like to make a night of it.

Here at the House we, too, are in winter sleep mode and closed for some cleaning, tweaking, paperwork and training up the setter pup until the 9th.  But you can give us a call and see if you can budge us to make a room available.  The bitter cold is gone for the moment, a winter thaw is in process but won’t last long.  Check the weather forecasts as Gambier should get some more snow this winter and this is a beautiful place in the snow.

Once classes begin there will be lots to take advantage of.  Keep your eyes open to this space and visit Kenyon’s website to get the latest update on what’s happening on The Hill.  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.

The porch rockers may be chilly but are still welcoming on a sunny day to watch the world pass our front door.  We hope you’ll join us.

The 2017 Family Weekend lottery is open.   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).

Family Weekend Lottery

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.

We will take a wait list for Reunion 2018 after May 15, 2017.  Please call or email us with your contact information to get on the list.
