Welcome to The Gambier House.  At 28 years, we are Gambier’s longest continuously operating bed and breakfast.   We hope you’ll like us on Facebook: gambierhousebandb. 

Thanksgiving greetings to all.  We have friends and family in the House this week as we share the blessings of the season.  Kenyon’s fall sports finished up over the weekend when the men’s soccer team made it to the NCAA D3 sweet sixteen.  Alas they did not prevail so the playing fields are now quiet for the winter but the basketball courts and pool are heating up!

There are rooms open for returning from Thanksgiving break and end of semester pick up.  Other events on the calendar in the rush to the new year are “The Art of Trees” on 12/12; Kenyon’s Gamelan Ensemble on 12/3; the Chamber Singers on 12/7; the Symphonic Wind Ensemble on 12/8 or the College’s Fall Dance Concert 12/12-14.  Please check Kenyon.edu for more specifics and visit gambierhouse.com for room availability for these and other wonderful events.

And don’t forget the usual area attractions: the Brown Family Environmental Center, the Kokosing Gap Trail, the Kokosing River (we can guide you toward canoe and kayak rentals), the Kokosing Nature Preserve and Amish Country (we’re just a hop/skip/jump away).

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

Without the 300 year old pine tree (you can pay homage at its stump) the view from the front porch is unobstructed.  If a cold porch is not your style, there’s a fire in the hearth.  We hope to see you soon!
