Current News


Welcome to The Gambier House Website.  This year we are celebrating 25 years in operation; Gambier’s longest running bed and breakfast. 

Spring Break has begun for Kenyon and we are taking a few days off here and there between now and March 17th.  Please check our availability calendar or give us a call if you wish to visit during that time.  Don’t begrudge us the time as we’ll be spiffing up (and doing taxes) in advance of a very busy spring season.

From March 18th through the end of May it will be a whirlwind of activity here on the Hill with sporting events, lectures, and performances, not to mention a graduation and a reunion.  Please visit Kenyon’s website to check out what’s going on, but there will be lots to do and see.  And for those on a slower pace, spring in Knox County is lovely.  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.

Just a reminder: Kenyon’s Graduation Weekend 2017 is full as is Reunion 2017 but the Family Weekend Lottery is open.  Please see below for more specifics.

The porch rockers may be chilly but are still welcoming on a sunny day to watch the world pass our front door.  We hope you’ll join us.

The 2017 Family Weekend lottery is open.   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).

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. Graduation 2017 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.
