Welcome to The Gambier House.  We’re still here, disinfected and eager to have visitors explore the natural beauty of the Kokosing Valley and enjoy some darn fine breakfasts! 

The fireplace has been christened for the new year and we did have a fabulous white Christmas, which, in true Central Ohio spirit, is gone now replaced by rain and grey skies.  Despite our variable weather, it is still possible to enjoy the attractions of the area: you can walk/cycle/run the Kokosing Gap Trail, enjoy the Kokosing River, visit the Kokosing Nature Preserve and explore Amish Country (we’re just a pretty drive away). 

Tinker, the English Setter and Breakfast Supervisor, and I had a quiet holiday with a delightful visit from some long time guests for the New Year.  The dog is eager to get back into his job this year and hopes everything opens up sooner.  There are still rooms available for Kenyon’s spring semester move in and also (?) for thoughtful visits during the semester.  The College and the students were extraordinary last semester.

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.

At 29 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 for 2021 is in limbo at this time.  While it is the ONLY way to stay during that popular weekend, the College has not confirmed a date as yet.  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).  Keep checking this space for more information.

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).
