Lovely stay at Kenyon College

We had a lovely stay at the Gambier House at Kenyon College. The innkeeper is extremely responsive, knowledgeable about the area, and provides an excellent breakfast. The B & B is located right on the Kenyon College campus so it was ideally located for a college visit. I would definitely stay there again!

Nestled quietly in the college town of Gambier, Ohio, the Gambier House (circa 1845) is a warm & welcoming B & B. Innkeeper Betsy Heer has tastefully decorated the guest rooms with period pieces, and no two rooms look alike. Her vibrant personality & culinary skills make breakfast a wonderful addition to your stay as well.

Wonderful B&B right in the heart of Kenyon College. The proprietor Betsy could not have been more gracious or accommodating. The Inn is lovely with comfortable quarters and many "at home" amenities. As I arrived I was greeted by the aroma of fresh cookies from the oven. What could be better. Breakfast was excellent and I enjoyed a chat after breakfast with the owner which was delightful. Highly recommend Gambier House for your next stay in Kenyon. Made visiting my granddaughter even more enjoyable. .

The Inn is an excellent alternative to the Kenyon Inn. I enjoyed talking to the other guess at breakfast, something you do not get to do in hotels.

Worth the trip to Gambier!

A very comfortable stay with no doubt the best breakfast we've ever had at a B&B. The innkeeper was very knowledgeable about the area and Kenyon College.
