Welcome to early Spring in Gambier! The snow has melted. The snowdrops and aconite are providing some hint as to the colorful bounty about to bloom here in Knox County. At The Gambier House the crocus are blossoming in the courtyard but we’re still wearing much of our brown drabness as temperatures are still cold in the night.

Spring Break is over and the race to the end of the Kenyon school year has commenced. Admission announcements will be out in a few days so the jockeying for rooms is about to begin. While most weekends are booked through the end of the school year, there are some vacancies the weekends of April 3/4 and 10/11. Please check our Availability Calendar for the most up to date vacancy information. As always, we do take wait lists. Please feel free to contact us by phone or via email to put your name down. We make no guarantees but things can change.

Speaking of contacting us, we’ve gotten a new email address: info@gambierhouse.com. The old address still works but not for too much longer.

Lots of events on campus over the next few weeks: lacrosse, baseball, softball, track and field, art exhibits, lectures, not to mention music, theater and dance performances. Hope you’ll come to visit as the weather warms and activities flourish.

Remember, there’s a porch rocker waiting for you here in Gambier.

The 2015 Family Weekend lottery is open.  We are currently accepting entries for next October’s lottery. Please follow the link below to enter. Remember, only one entry per family. The drawing will take place in June — 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 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.
