Welcome to The Gambier House website.  At 26 years, the House is Gambier’s longest continuously operating bed and breakfast.   We’re on Facebook: gambierhousebandb.  We hope you’ll like us.

How time flies when you’re having fun…Family Weekend, The Kenyon Review Literary Festival, fall sports, Thanksgiving AND the Kenyon Invitational swim meet have all come and gone.  Exams are upon the College, along with snow, sleet, icy rain and other fun weather phenomena of the season.  Oh well.

It is not too late to come spend time with us, visit Amish Country, explore winter nature at the Brown Family Environmental Center, Kokosing Nature Preserve or the Kokosing Gap Trail.  These last few weeks before the Holidays are busy but can be lots of fun.  The finery is up in the House so we sparkle no matter the weather.

The Kenyon Bookstore is all new and you can still get a bite at The Kenyon Inn or the Village Inn.  Wiggin St. Coffee is a great place to continue the wake-up after a gourmet breakfast with us.   Fingers crossed that the Gambier Deli opens before the end of December.

We’ll be taking our winter’s nap beginning December 23rd  but it is never too late to make reservations for January 11th and beyond.  Basketball is in full swing (Go Ladies — our favorite).  We hope you’ll join us, a comfy chair by the fire is waiting as are those frosty porch rockers.

The 2018 Family Weekend lottery has closed.   This is the ONLY way to stay during that popular weekend.  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 2019 is fully booked.

Reunion 2019 has a wait list.  Please call or email us  to get on the list.
