Fall semester at Kenyon has begun, all the fall sports teams have played at least one home game and the window art in the Bookstore features mums and asters. It must be September in Gambier.
We are bearing up through the first cold snap of late summer, I’m not quite ready to embrace autumn just yet! There’s more warm weather to come, which means there’s still time to enjoy kayaking and fishing on the Kokosing River and walking/running/cycling on the Kokosing Gap Trail. Indeed this is fall fair season with tomato and pumpkin festivals in the area through the month. The Mt. Vernon farmer’s market is shifting from zucchini and tomatoes to squashes and pumpkins.
As for the bed and breakfast; we’re a busy place in September and October. There are weekday but few, if any, weekend rooms available. Do check our availability and call us if you wish to be put on the wait list. The courtyard has been spiffed up with some new landscaping and we’ve been experimenting with a new breakfast entry (corn pancakes with salsa), which might show up on the menu soon. For those planning ahead, November is good time to stay.
It is not too late to join us on a porch rocker this fall. The leaves aren’t changing quite yet.
