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

We know it is spring because the Admissions decisions went out recently — Congrats Admitted Students!  We’re a great place to stay while visiting Kenyon this season; just steps from the Admissions Office.  We still have rooms for dates in April.

The College’s construction boom in downtown Gambier continues, which means some traffic challenges and fewer dining options but the Kenyon Inn and Village Inn are both open.  AND, the refurbished (basically all new), Kenyon Bookstore is open for business.  Hooray!!

Wishing you a wonderful spring and hope you’ll come and enjoy a porch rocker in the coming months.

E.J. Heer, Innkeeper



It is time for the 2018 Family Weekend lottery.   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).

 Family Weekend 2018
