FALL 2016

Greetings from The Gambier House.   The Holidays are upon us and we’ve used the Thanksgiving break to deck our halls and encourage that Christmas spirit.  Too bad the small snow we had a few weeks ago is long gone; but it is early in the season!

Kenyon’s Fall semester is nearly over.  But there is a lot going on in the next couple of weeks.  The Kenyon Invitational Swim Meet, Dancing with the Kenyon Stars and the Chamber Singer’s Winter Concert are all this weekend.  Next weekend is Basketball and the Fall Dance Concert.  On the 18th the Brown Environmental Center is holding its Winter bird count — could be a good time to spend the night, enjoy some winter birding (we have great raptors in the area as well as many woodpeckers and other birds) and spend a pleasant evening in front of the fire.  Please check our availability calendar or give us a call to see what’s open during the next few weeks. 

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 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.
