Great location

In the middle of the Village, Gambier House gives the filling of being part of the college community/ A charming house with an open kitchen and wonderful common areas. You feel like you are at a home without the burden of being under the constant scrutiny of ahostess, who lives off-site.

Sweet and charming

Cozy room with extra blankets if needed and plenty of hot water for the shower. Delicious breakfast and a gracious host.

Visiting my son

5 on October 06, 2014

I had one night lay over in Gambier to visit my son at Kenyon. The stay at the Gamier House could not have been better. My son got his first good nights sleep in 4 weeks! One cautionary tale about Gambier. I pulled into a parking spot for less than 2 minutes, did not see that it was 'sticker only', and got a 100$ fine. The person giving out the fine must have been lying in wait, I literally dropped a box off at the door of the dorm and then returned to my car. No sympathy from the community office of gambier. I would however, highly recommend the Gambier House!

Great place to lay your head and relax

Clean and comfortable room, easy access to surrounding countryside and Kenyon, and wonderful food and hospitable hostess. Non-sleeping rooms are comfortable and like home.

Recent Stay in September.

We had another excellent stay at the Gambier House. Everything is just perfect in every respect! We will continue to stay every time we come to Gambier.

Great Place to Stay while visiting Kenyon College

I came here with my daughter to visit Kenyon College. Gambier House is a beautifully furnished gem of a B&B conveniently located by the campus. Betsy was a very welcoming hostess, and her breakfast (french toast & fresh peaches) was superb. Also, the rates were very reasonable. Definite recommend.

Sweet home away from home

We arrived very late and were given easy directions and access to our charming room. Betsy provided lovely breakfasts each morning. If my daughter chooses Kenyon College we will stay here again in the near future!

excellent bed and breakfast in lovely college town

We were dropping off our son at Kenyon College and tried out the GAmbier House for our overnight. We were welcomed warmly and were comfortable and at home our whole stay. We will definitely return

Love at first stop!

Stayed here for the first time - my daughter is starting her second year at Kenyon. The House was exactly as I pictured it. Everything is in walking distance and the backyard is so great! My room was charming and comfortable. The shower is a little small but it works great. I couldn't stay for breakfast but the frittata that was being prepared looked divine. Will definitely stay here every time I'm in Gambier!

Perfect B&B Experience

I love the Gambier House. It is perfect when dropping off kids going to Kenyon College. Like the college, it is scenic, laid-back and comfortable. The front porch is a great spot to chill and enjoy the moment. Breakfast is delicious!
