Welcome to The Gambier House.  At 28 years, we are Gambier’s longest continuously operating bed and breakfast.  Visit our Facebook page: gambierhousebandb.

Ohio’s governor has lifted various lockdowns so life is beginning to take on a new normal.  We are open for business but would ask that guests follow some virus etiquette: keep that personal space at 6 feet, please bring your own masks/gloves (we’re not quite equipped yet) and wear the masks in the public rooms to help insure the safety of other guests and our wonderful staff. 

Once the rest of the county begins to open, we hope to see the return of college visitors AND cabin fever escapees!  There are many springtime getaways in the area: you can walk/ride/run the Kokosing Gap Trail, visit the Kokosing Nature Preserve and drive through Amish County (we’re just a hop/skip/jump away).  

Without the 300 year old pine tree (you can pay homage at its stump) the view from the front porch is unobstructed.   We hope to see you soon!

WE’VE EXTENDED THE DATE!!: The 2020 Family Weekend lottery is open through June 15th.   This is the ONLY way to stay during that popular weekend.  The drawing will take place by June 20th — one room per family — we contact the winners that week.  Should you not be one of the lucky 6 families, 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).

Enter the Family Weekend Lottery

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.  This lottery has also been extended, with the drawing taking place on June 15th, only the winners will be 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).
