JULY 2020

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

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

College life will resume in the fall, with dorms opening on a specific schedule in August, please refer to Kenyon emails for that schedule in July.  We hope you’ll consider staying with us as you move your student into their dorm for the fall.

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).

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!

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).
