Current News


Welcome to The Gambier House website.  At 27 years, the House is Gambier’s longest continuously operating bed and breakfast.   We’re on Facebook: gambierhousebandb.  We hope you’ll like us.

Kenyon winter sports have drawn to a close (Ladies Basketball made it to the conference quarterfinals this year) and lacrosse has already been playing games.  The Swim team competes in Nationals in mid-March!  Go Kenyon!

Rooms are still available for any Presidents’ Weekend college visiting.  We are taking advantage of spring break ourselves the first week of March but will be raring to go on the 11th for a busy season of college visiting and other spring activities.

Outside there is still plenty to do: visit Amish Country, explore spring nature at the Brown Family Environmental Center (this year they are hosting monthly birding excursions), visit the Kokosing Nature Preserve or walk the Kokosing Gap Trail. 

Roam the shelves at the Kenyon Bookstore and get a bite at The Kenyon Inn, the Village Inn or the Gambier Deli!  Wiggin St. Coffee is a great place to continue the wake-up after a gourmet breakfast with us.  

We provide a great starting point for any area excursion or there’s a comfy chair by the fire waiting, as are those frosty porch rockers.

P.S. Our Family Weekend Lottery is open and we hope you’ll add your name.  Please see below.

The 2019 Family Weekend lottery has opened.   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 Lottery 2019


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.
