JUNE 2017

Welcome to The Gambier House website.  This year we are celebrating 25 years in operation: Gambier’s longest continuously operating bed and breakfast. 

Well, the hazy, crazy days of summer are upon us.  Heat, humidity and thunderstorms are the forecast these days.  In between, we’ve begun to get our garden together and had a good weeding of the House beds not long ago.  The deer are nibbling on the hosta but things are growing and the local fruits are finding their way to our breakfast table.

Summer activities have begun: playwright and writers workshops, swim camps and the Kenyon Institute are all happening this month.  As always, there are many interesting hikes in the area (and the Kokosing Gap Trail), a scenic river (The Kokosing) to enjoy and lots of flora and fauna to catch the eye.  Amish country is just up the road and we can point you toward bald eagle and heron nests and, of course, the white-tailed deer wandering through the Village.

I can’t speak highly enough of the Village’s 4th of July festivities.  If you find yourself in the area, come stay and participate in the shortest but best parade around followed by a pitch-in picnic with music and bouncy castles!  Unfortunately, downtown Gambier is under construction so the whole thing will happen by the train at the Gap Trail but it is still heaps of fun.  Speaking of which, dining options for the summer are fewer but business is still booming at the Kenyon Inn and Village Inn.

The porch rockers are a wonderful way to watch the world pass our front door.  We hope you’ll join us.

The 2017 Family Weekend lottery has closed.   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 2018 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.
