Welcome to The Gambier House.  We’re still here and eager to have visitors enjoy the natural beauty of the Kokosing Valley and some darn fine breakfasts!  The schedule is out, Kenyon (in a Covid-inspired form) is back in business, and we’re disinfected and ready for guests.

We do ask guests to follow state mandated virus etiquette: keep that personal space at 6 feet, make use of the available hand sanitizers and wear masks in the public rooms to help insure the safety of other guests and our wonderful staff.  We are disinfecting after every stay but be aware that rooms may turn over with less than 24 hours between guests.

For Kenyon parents, we hope you’ll consider staying with us as you move your student into their dorm this fall.  The House is campus adjacent so no dormitory is very far away

We welcome college visitors AND cabin fever escapees!  There are many summertime getaways in the area: you can walk/ride/run the Kokosing Gap Trail, kayak/tube on the Kokosing River, visit the Kokosing Nature Preserve and drive through Amish County (we’re just a hop/skip/jump away).  Recent local sightings and soundings include great horned and screech owls!

At 28 years, we are Gambier’s longest continuously operating bed and breakfast.  Visit our Facebook page: gambierhousebandb.  The porch rockers await.  We hope to see you soon!

The Family Weekend lottery is CANCELED.  While it is the ONLY way to stay during that popular weekend, the College has canceled the 2020 Family Weekend.  Despite Covid19,  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.  The 2021 lottery is closed and the winners have been notified.

Reunion 2021 is booked.  Please call or email us  to get on the wait list (May 2021 is a long way away and things might change, they sure did for 2020).
