Ideally located just across the street from Kenyon College, The Gambier House, with 5 bedrooms and an attached suite, has been lovingly restored and decorated. It features a formal parlor, family room, fireplaces, antiques and hidden staircases. Enjoy the tranquility of the weeping cherry courtyard or watch the world go by on a front porch rocker. Ask us about events at Kenyon College or access to the Kokosing Gap bike trail and scenic river, Amish Country and antiquing.

We stayed at the Gambier House when my son was touring Kenyon College. Everything about the stay was outstanding.

My wife and I decided to go on a minute weekend away and were luckily able to book the carriage house. Great value for such a big space. Pancakes the next morning were delicious.

I'm a bit uneasy with the star rating system, since my expectations were that staying at the Gambier House would be a real treat, and in that sense, my expectations were met. However, were I to simply rate our stay as "met my expectations," the three stars would seem to imply a merely average place, whereas this B&B, like most, is a much better choice in my book than staying at a hotel or other impersonal spot. We thoroughly enjoyed out stay, and as a foodie, I loved the breakfasts, each a treat for a person who always starts his day with a morning meal. Mostly, we were out and about in Gambier, so didn't spend much downtime at the inn, but when we did, public spaces were just fine (though I'd have enjoyed a bigger screen TV for watching World Cup matches). Our room (Green) was fine, the beds comfortable, though having two doubles in a fairly small space meant not having room for an extra chair or couch, which would have been nice. I'd opt for one queen bed rather than two doubles given a choice. Nonetheless, everything was topnotch; we'll stay again when we return to Gambier.

The breakfasts were delicious. Egg souffle, fresh blueberry muffins, and waffles were amazing. I am very fussy about my coffee, and this was fresh and strong. A great start to the day.

Beautiful, well-appointed, historic home. Comfortable guest rooms and friendly innkeeper. Best place to stay to visit Kenyon College, if you can get a room! Directly across the street from the college, with convenient free parking area behind the inn.
