I thoroughly enjoyed the stay. The proprietor was friendly and the accommodations were wonderful.

Central Ohio Gem

5 su ottobre 12, 2017

The Gambier House remains a central Ohio nugget. From the well-appointed rooms to the scrumptious breakfasts, it is well worth a visit. Sporting any number of "back in time" touches, the Gambier House provides both a stimulating yet relaxed atmosphere. The innkeeper is engaging and overlooks nothing. A truly superior experience!

Superb Gambier House stay

5 su ottobre 06, 2017

The Gambier House and hostess were perfect for making our visit to Kenyon a wonderful experience. The room was excellent and the delicious breakfasts were a treat. Betsy had information on Gambier, Kenyon and sites to explore in the surrounding area. We had a great time and hope to visit again.

Mid-Ohio Gem

5 su settembre 05, 2017

The Gambier House is everything you'd want in a B & B - and more. From tastefully antique-decorated rooms to scrumptious breakfasts prepared by the innkeeper herself, the Gambier House offers an extraordinary experience. An added bonus: the innkeeper is a delightful conversationalist! Don't miss it when in central Ohio. It's well worth the trip.

Wonderful B&B

The Gambier House is my go-to place to stay in Knox County. The rooms are charming, the beds comfortable, and the breakfasts outstanding.

Perfect place to stay while visiting Kenyon

Room was charming, breakfast was delicious and you can't beat the location.

A Perfect Stay

5 su agosto 22, 2017

We absolutely loved our stay here! I do believe my daughter will be back to visit her new friend, Pogo, Breakfast Supervisor. :) We stayed in Carriage House, and I truly can't think of anything one would ever need beyond what is provided. Great air conditioning, plenty of space, a very nice shower, and a cute little kitchen with everything provided. We didn't use the kitchen because we took advantage of the wonderful breakfast on Move-In morning and ended up enjoying some delicious corn pancakes as well as great conversation with fellow guests. I guess what I am saying is, "We'd move in, if we could!"

Alumni back on campus for a summer wedding

3,8 su luglio 10, 2017

My partner and I both attended Kenyon and returned for a summer wedding of two alums. I had always been curious about the Gambier House but had never been inside during my time as a Kenyon student. The Gambier House is cute, cozy, and welcoming. We did not get to spend much time in the cottage, as we were busy with wedding festivities, but I would have loved to curl up on the couch downstairs with a book for a quiet afternoon. Betsy was very flexible and provided us with clear, simple instructions for our after-hours check in. We awoke to the smell of bacon and homemade cinnamon Belgian waffles and thoroughly enjoyed our breakfast chat with Betsy, who caught us up on all of the latest village news. Our room (Drawer Room) was clean and comfortable (plus, it has a huge bathroom). We will definitely stay here when we next visit Kenyon.

Wedding Weekend at the Gambier House

5 su luglio 05, 2017

My wife and I stayed at the Gambier house while we attended the wedding of a close friend. We absolutely loved our stay. Betsy was warm and welcoming and a fantastic cook. My friends were all jealous of the quality breakfasts that we enjoyed (waffles one morning and a homemade egg frittata the next). We loved the cozy feel of the Gambier House and the location could not be more convenient to both the college and the main village square. Overall we had a fantastic time and will definitely recommend staying at the Gambier House for anyone who is visiting Kenyon and Gambier.

Relaxing, charming inn

5 su giugno 27, 2017

I spent almost a week at Gambier House, and it was a delightful stay (Master Bedroom). The innkeeper is helpful and knowledgeable while at the same time she gives her guests space. The location is terrific and the house is comfortable and charming. Very nice bathroom, too. I plan to return. I was visiting for a conference so I did not have breakfast at the inn, but I'm sure it was delicious. Snacks and drinks are available all day.

Gambier House cottage

The cottage is charming and we enjoyed having the living room for a visit with a friend after dinner. Betsy does a great job welcoming guests and cooking breakfast feasts!

Excellent visit all round

Had a lovely breakfast--perfect place for my son's visit to Kenyon college as an admitted student

Lovely weekend at Gambier House

4,2 su aprile 27, 2017

We had a very nice weekend with the highlight being the breakfasts. I am not really a breakfast person but these were outstanding!! the house is lovely also.

classic B & B!

5 su aprile 24, 2017

A stay at the Gambier House is clearly worth a trip to central Ohio. My wife & I have visited several times & have now stayed in every room. All are delightful & chock full of distinctive character. The inkeeper, Betsy Heer, provides delicious & hearty breakfasts, along with engaging conversation. Don't miss the Gambier House!

Very pretty and comfortable B&B

I stayed in Master room, liked the decoration and it is very clean. Breakfast is delicious. House location is the best.

A Great Place to Stay When Visiting Kenyon College

5 su aprile 02, 2017

Visiting my granddaughter, a student at Kenyon, I found that I could stay at Gambier House, right not the campus, for about the same price as a motel several miles away. The house is charming and comfortable, and the hospitable innkeeper invited me to have my granddaughter join me for breakfast.

Home away from home

4,0 su marzo 24, 2017

This was my second stay at the Gambier House Bed & Breakfast and Betsy was very welcoming. I travel extensively and have high expectations when it comes to lodging. This B&B is becoming my home away from home when I visit our daughter at Kenyon and I will continue to stay there on future visits to Gambier.

Gambier House Aims to Please

4,4 su marzo 13, 2017

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in the Carriage House of the Gambier House. The breakfasts prepared by Betsy, the owner, were out of this world. We very much enjoyed the freedom of coming and going out the back entrance, but mostly enjoyed talking to Betsy and meeting her wonderful dogs.

Another great stay at the Gambier House

4,8 su febbraio 25, 2017

I have a daughter at Kenyon College and have stayed at the Gambier House on several occasions. I am never disappointed. The house and rooms are cozy and comfortable, the breakfast delicious, and the hospitality is outstanding.

Home for the Holidays

4,6 su dicembre 28, 2016

Our stay was great, we enjoy staying at the Gambier House. The breakfast is great! and the rooms have a lot of charm and character. Access to the Keyon College Athletic Center is a great perk. We love the college town atmosphere. There is no gas station in Gambier so no random people passing through.

Lovely B&B - the best place to stay in Gambier

4,6 su novembre 20, 2016

The Gambier House is a comfortable, spacious B&B right in the center of town. The public rooms are welcoming, with space for relaxing or working. There are snacks, fruit, coffee and tea available for guests at all hours. The Green Room, where we stayed has comfortable beds nestled into the eaves of the house and was clean and well-kept.

Very welcoming and comfortable

5 su novembre 13, 2016

Perfect accommodation in the village of Gambier. Lovely room, delicious breakfast, and a charming innkeeper.

Warm and charming

4,6 su ottobre 26, 2016

The Innkeeper is a great cook and has a magic touch for creating a comfortable little community at breakfast. The common library and living rooms are well laid out. While rooms and baths are more cozy than luxurious, the location makes this the best place to stay when visiting Gambier.

We stayed in the carriage house for a wedding in town. Everything went really well. Good breakfast, comfortable bed, helpful service.

Best place to stay in the area, if you can get a room

4,6 su settembre 06, 2016

Had a lovely stay. Our host was charming and friendly, the house is beautiful. Can't recommend enough.

Excellent Bed and Breakfast

5 su settembre 05, 2016

Gambier House is a charming bed and breakfast. The host was friendly, clear about check in and check out and arrangements for breakfast. The food was delicious! This B & B is conveniently located next to Kenyon campus. There is a small parking lot in the back which will be appreciated by guests as well. My room was clean and very nicely decorated. With a house this old, a guest doesn't get all the upgrades available in a new hotel but to me the charm, friendliness of the place and convenience more than makes up for that.

THE place to stay in central Ohio

5 su agosto 27, 2016

The Carriage House at the Gambier House is just a marvelous suite with everything you need combined with great little extra touches. The innkeeper is always warm & personable & always serves interesting & delicious breakfasts. Make the Gambier House a "must stay there" destination!

Gambier House never disappoints!

5 su agosto 26, 2016

We stayed at the Gambier House on August 22nd for one night. We have stayed there frequently in the past as our daughter is a student at Kenyon College (also located in Gambier). It is our number one choice of a place to stay when visiting/dropping off/picking up our student. Very relaxing and the food is wonderful!

I think I am shooting myself in the foot - best place to stay!

Fantastic place - stay here if you are visiting Kenyon!

A great place to stay. The house is old and funky with lots of character. The food is great.

Perfect Place to Stay for Kenyon Events

4,8 su agosto 15, 2016

Our host was lovely and accommodated our many wedding-related requests. Breakfasts were healthy and delicious. I highly recommend this property!

Wonderful, affordable option

4,8 su agosto 02, 2016

We spent the night in Gambier on a jaunt through Central Ohio and the Gambier House was by far the most affordable and easiest to schedule online. The innkepper was very responsive via email and even let us spend time with her little dog when we were in the living room reading the Times. I do wish that they had more rooms with King Beds, but that's a minor flaw, the place is really a wonderful little gem of a hotel.

A stay at Gambier House felt like home

4,4 su agosto 02, 2016

I have wanted to stay at the Gambier House since my son started at Kenyon in 2014, but there was never a room available when we needed it. My son was up there this summer so I thought I'd give it another try and they were able to accommodate me. I stayed in the Drawer Room upstairs which was very comfortable and unique, although the shower (in the private bath) was a bit difficult to navigate. The innkeeper was lovely and hospitable and I felt at home. I was not able to stay for breakfast, but it sounded like it would be yummy. A lovely experience overall.

Gambier Gem

4,0 su agosto 01, 2016

We enjoyed a three-night stay at this lovely inn in Gambier, Ohio, home of Kenyon College. Gambier House is situated ideally in a residential area that is also very near campus, shopping and dining establishments. Hospitality and breakfasts were superb. Highly recommended! (Onsite Dining score is irrelevant, as no onsite dining is offered.)

Nice, comfortable spot

3,6 su giugno 11, 2016

We were visiting Kenyon College, and the location was great. And the owner was very helpful.

Love the Gambier House

4,6 su maggio 19, 2016

On a recent visit to Kenyon College, I once again stayed at the Gambier House. The house is charming, the rooms are cozy, and the innkeeper friendly, efficient and talented in the kitchen. In every way staying at Gambier House feels like home.

A pleasure to stay here!

5 su maggio 11, 2016

Comfortable lodging in a perfect location - the Gambier House is an ideal choice for visiting Kenyon. Betsy's hospitality, delicious breakfasts and cookies, and charming decor made my second stay here so pleasant. I will definitely return!

Wonderful Home away from Home

5 su maggio 08, 2016

What a wonderful place to stay while visiting Kenyon. The location is ideal, and the environment at the Gambier House makes it easy to connect with other Kenyon families. Betsy is a warm and welcoming hostess, full of useful information about the area. The delicious breakfasts are truly the icing on the cake.

Mixed Review

4,0 su maggio 01, 2016

The location cannot be beat. It is practically on campus. The hostess is lovely. I think the house would appeal to many people. The ground floor is quite nice, plenty of space to lounge and meet with others or enjoy the paper or read a book. The rooms are quirky, and will appeal to many, but not all. For example, in the room I had, the sink was in the bedroom, not the bathroom, and you needed to use a stepstool to use it – quirky, but that was fine with me as a single parent (it was a room for two). The main reason for dinging the ratings is that it is noisy – you can hear every step in the hall and every word of the steppers -- loudly. I had a room in the front of the house. I could literally hear every word of every person/couple/group who walked on the sidewalk in front of the house -- every word. I also heard all the music from the campus parties that seem to happen every weekend. If noise and quirkiness is not an issue, this is a great place to stay. Also, I must say, the breakfasts were quite tasty, and the hostess is very accommodating – she is lovely. The Gambier house may well meet, or exceed, your expectation. However, the noisiness was too much for me.

Lovely stay at Kenyon College

4,6 su maggio 01, 2016

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!

Comfortable stay

4,8 su aprile 29, 2016

Stayed in the library room which was lovely, quiet, convenient to Kenyon where daughter was visiting. Would highly recommend.

a true gem!

5 su aprile 21, 2016

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.


4,8 su aprile 21, 2016

Wonderful place to stay while visiting Kenyon College. And the breakfast is outstanding!!!

College Visit

5 su aprile 17, 2016

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. .

First time in Gambier

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!

4,6 su aprile 07, 2016

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.

Gracious Gambier House Provides Perfect Place at Kenyon

5 su marzo 16, 2016

The Gambier House is the perfect location for all things Kenyon! This was my third or fourth stay, tried many of the rooms, which are always cozy and comfortable. It is an easy walk to everything and has private parking. Betsy, the innkeeper, is always gracious, has a wealth of knowledge about the area, is very accommodating, and prepares absolutely delicious breakfasts! We also like the warm, welcoming common areas to just hang out in and visit. Highly recommend this fabulous bed and breakfast!

Great Service and Location in Gambier

I have family in the area and have stayed at Gambier House many times. The rooms are very clean and comfortable. I always sleep so well there .. which was especially important this last trip because I was in town for a funeral. Breakfast is creative and healthy and always on time. And I always enjoy tea and Betsy's homemade cookies in the evenings as a bedtime snack.

We spent one night. I have nothing negative to report. Friendly staff/inn keeper, good food, great accommodations.

Gambier House is Geeat

5 su ottobre 30, 2015

My stay was wonderful. I cannot rate the onsite dining because my circumstances didn't allow for me to have meals there (as I got in late and left very early too.). However, Betsy made sure to ask me numerous times if I wanted anything else (Since I didn't have time for breakfast) Betsy (of Greenhouss). offered to come over and make coffee (and I told her it wasn't necessary as I don't drink coffee and brought my own drink.). She also offered to bring me a couple of muffins and i again told her I was fine! Very beautiful house, very nice room (The Drawer Room) and a really good size , private bathroom. I will definitely stay at Gambier House again!! Holly Brown Indianapolis

This gem of a B & B in tiny Gambier is a must-visit. Well-appointed rooms, in old-fashioned style, combine with terrific breakfasts to make this a great value as well.

A great option for Gambier

4,2 su aprile 19, 2015

I love to stay here because it is the best value right at Kenyon College. The owner is wonderful and makes a fabulous breakfast. Unfortunately, I think it is due for a spruce's becoming shabby chic, I guess you would say. I hope the owner will make some much needed updates in a way that is economical enough to not ruin the great value. Perhaps you just can't have it all!!!

Risposta del proprietario
Ah, the challenges of maintaining a Victorian house with charm amid the bustle of legions of guests. Your comments are duly noted and your understanding appreciated. Our list of sprucing is long, but we are working our way through it. We hope that improvements will be noticeable with your next visit.

- EJ Heer (innkeeper)

Charming and affordable

We had a very pleasant stay. The proprietor, Betsy, was very accommodating. The rooms were lovely. Bathrooms are modern with good water flow. Public areas (living room etc) accessible and comfortable. We did not have the breakfast, so cannot comment on that, however, it smelled delicious.

Great stay at great place

Charming house and innkeeper; delicious breakfast!

The Gambier House was a perfect spot to stay while visiting our daughter at Kenyon. This stay was in the Carriage House, which was a comfortable suite, with its own sitting room and small kitchen. The bed was very comfortable, and despite the subzero temps outside, we were warm inside. We had (as always) the most delicious breakfast. The B&B is in the heart of town and right across the street from the Kenyon academic buildings (I was closer than my daughter's dorm). Betsy knows the town and gives great suggestions for dinner, etc. They have a great little parking area right behind the house, and you can walk anywhere in town with ease. All in all, I highly recommend the Gambier House!!

Fantastic place to stay.

Pleasant stay

4,6 su febbraio 12, 2015

Spent one night for a mother-daughter college visit. We stayed in the green Room which has two double beds. The beds were comfortable. The private bath was small but very clean and completely adequate. The room has reading lights by both beds and throw rugs. A chair to sit on would be a nice addition. Sitting in the room is bed-only. The temperature would have been chilly but our innkeeper provided a modern space heater with a thermostat and we were very comfortable. Breakfast was delicious. It's very nice to have access to snacks and beverages in the evening. The parlors and library on the first floor are pleasant for sitting and reading or using the computer provided for guests. The location is perfect for a college visit to Kenyon. The walk to the admissions office is one block or less.

Everything good

5 su dicembre 17, 2014

Great central location in Gambier, within easy walking distance to anything in town. Everything was in great order and the house is wonderfully old and quirky. The innkeeper was very accommodating and helpful. French toast was great.

Delightful stay!

4,6 su dicembre 16, 2014

We stayed in the old library, which was beautifully furnished and clean. The fireplace is a lovely touch, but the hearth sticks up and without a lot of room around the bed, made us nervous about tripping. I also prefer a bedside light so that I can read at night, but the light in this room was above the bed and one one switch (not a problem if you have a kindle). The service is fantastic, and the innkeeper is delightful. Breakfast was outstanding and different each day. The patio is lovely to look at in winter and we have also enjoyed sitting out there for drinks in warm weather.

A charming and well-kept inn with a great manager

5 su dicembre 02, 2014

We stayed during Thanksgiving and were greeted by the wonderful owner/manager Betsy Heer who looked after our every needs. The rooms are comfortable and spacious. The converted large house is charming with respect to a hotel experience. From the great morning coffee and homemade pumpkin scones (on Thanksgiving) our every comfort was looked after. Overall, a great experience.

Revisit the college

My son and I thoroughly enjoyed a visit of my old college. Staying in the Gambier House was icing on the cake.

Very Nice Stay at the Gambier House

4,8 su novembre 19, 2014

My son and I had a great stay here while visiting Kenyon College. The owner was very accommodating, and the house lovely and perfectly located fright across the street from the school. An unexpected surprise was the benefit of sitting around the breakfast table with others in various stages of the admissions process-including an admissions director from another school. Delicious food and valuable conversation. This is the kind of experience you just can't get at a hotel.

Prime Location for Visiting Kenyon

4,4 su novembre 11, 2014

For parents and prospective students, this location offers a good sense of living on campus, with access to all campus buildings and ancillary services as typically experienced by the Kenyon community. The breakfasts, assuming there are other other parents and prospective students resident at the same time, provide a useful roundtable discussion and comparison of the college application visit and process, and the food is creative and excellent.

Kenyon Visit

3,8 su novembre 05, 2014

The house is cute. It could use a bit of upgrading, though I believe it is trying to be a period B&B. Also, it was a bit chilly in the room. The innkeeper was very nice and made a great breakfast both days I was there! And the shower in the "Old Library" was divine. It would be nice if it had a full length mirror in the room. Thank you.

Great Place for a Kenyon Visit

3,6 su ottobre 28, 2014

Location, location, location. If you are visiting Kenyon, this is the place to stay. Hard to beat for convenience and comfort. Only drawback is that TMobile doesn't work in Gambier but that isn't anything the B&B can do other than let you know in advance.

Cute and Convenient

4,2 su ottobre 22, 2014

I really appreciated the access to the kitchen fridge and microwave and dishware. Made it very convenient to accommodate my food allergies. Also super convenient to campus. Makes for a perfect stay while your child is visiting Kenyon College.

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.

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 su ottobre 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

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.

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!

4,6 su settembre 04, 2014

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

5 su agosto 30, 2014

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!

Convenient and cute

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.

Perfect solution for a stay of several days in Gambier

4,0 su luglio 05, 2014

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.

Check this place out.

Perfect place to stay in this idealic location especially when visiting Kenyon College. Loved my walk along the Kokosing Trail. Saw my first cardinal and caught my first firefly.

Great breakfasts

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.

Excellent place to stay to visit Kenyon

A lovely spot to stay

We recently stayed at Gambier house while looking at Kenyon. Betsy, the owner, was lovely and welcoming. She was very informative about the school and we felt right at home. The breakfast was delicious and there were also snacks and drinks available at all times. We would definitely stay there again!

Small Town Hospitality

3,8 su aprile 10, 2014

The Gambier House B&B is convenient to everywhere in Gambier and provides a comfortable, homey atmosphere. The breakfasts are way beyond ordinary and worth a stay on that criteria alone. Take a bike and get your exercise nearby on the trail that runs by the beautiful Kokosing River.

Friendly innkeeper, charming room and common areas, fabulous breakfast. We would definitely come again.

A Great Stay!

4,6 su marzo 05, 2014

The innkeeper is very friendly and explained all of the lovely amenities at the inn. We thoroughly enjoyed the public rooms for an evening of re-connecting with family. The breakfast prepared for us was pretty, delicious, and just enough gourmet to be fun but not enough to put off a pickier eater in the family. The price was reasonable as well. We will definitely return when we are in the area.

Pleasent Stay after Long Drive

3,8 su gennaio 15, 2014

After a Seven and one half hour drive bringing my 20-year-old daughter back to Kenyon College, I was looking forward to relaxing with my feet up on a coffee table,a good book to read and a cold beer before hitting the hay in a comfortable bed. The Gambier House Bed and Breakfast met these needs admirably, without the "staying at your Rich Grandmothers house/hands off" feeling that often comes with B & B stays. The 1st floor areas of the house (living room, dining room, Kitchen) were all tastefully furnished with an emphasis on comfort. During the tour the very kind proprietor made sure to show me the generous allotment of home made cookies, as well as sodas, fruits, juices, coffees and teas available on the house. My bedroom was of good size, much of which was filled by the queen-sized bed covered with bedspreads, comforter, pillows and decorative throw pillows. I was shown the very large private bathroom, which included a marble bath, toilet / bidet , two small make-up desks with mirrors and the softest, fluffiest towels I have ever seen.We returned to the kitchen to settle my tab. I then drove my daughter to her campus house ( Gambier is surrounded by Kenyon College! ) and stopped at the well-stocked grocer on campus for Belgian beer before returning to my room. My evening was pleasant, and I The only complaints were minor: the promised wifi continually disconnected. and the bed squeaked and groaned loudly whenever I climbed in or out of it. While this was not a problem for me alone, had my significant other and I been in the bed together with the romantic atmosphere, the loud squeaking and moaning of this bed might have made for a sleepless night for our neighbors, as well as a few snickers and side-long glances in the morning! All in all, the Gambier House made for a beautiful and comfortable stay on the Kenyon College campus.

Only The Best

They only gave me the best service, and they didn't do anything less than that. They were timely, helped me with everything and the location was spot on. Loved it!

Pleasant surprise

We loved our stay. The hospitality was warm and friendly without being overbearing. Plan to be back.

Betsy Rules

4,4 su novembre 25, 2013

The only reason to go to Gambier, Ohio is to visit Kenyon College and the only place to stay is The Gambier House. Yes, you could stay at the Kenyon Inn or in Mount Vernon (8 miles away) but why bother when the Gambier House, run by hotelier extraordinaire, Betsy is directly across the street from the main part of the campus. Comfortable, roomy, pleasant facilities and excellent breakfasts w/free parking--what more could you ask for. We have stayed here in excess of a dozen times--Betsy rules.

Perfect stay for Kenyon Parents

4,4 su novembre 24, 2013

This is by far the best place for Kenyon Parents to stay when visiting. Nothing in Mt. Vernon compares.

Best breakfast in Ohio

4,8 su novembre 17, 2013

Gambier House was the perfect place to stay for my visit to Kenyon College. It was convenient to everything in town. The owner, Betsy, was very knowledgeable and accommodating. She is also a fantastic cook, having run a bakery in NYC. Breakfast was the most delicious I have had. The room and the public areas of the inn are welcoming and comfortable. It truly felt like home, only better.

A wonderful breakfast and great host in gambier

3,4 su novembre 07, 2013

Betsy is a very helpful host, as always the people staying there are always nice and friendly and the breakfast is to dream about.

Convenient to Kenyon College

4,4 su novembre 07, 2013

Stayed 3 nights. Within 200 yards of Kenyon college. Comfortable bed, good shower, enough room to spread out. Public rooms are comfortable and pleasant. Parking right outside. Breakfasts are fresh cooked, graciously served, and delicious. Cookies and coffee, space in freezer and fridge. Some outside noise at night. Relaxed and enjoyable. Much preferred to hotels in the area. Old house with charm.

Inviting Bed and Breakfast

The Gambier House is cozy and most convenient for Kenyon families. Betsy's breakfast was to die for!

Convenience, comfort, charm

4,2 su novembre 04, 2013

Right in the middle of the Kenyon campus! That made our college visit easy, as well as the offer to park all day in the lot even though we'd checked out already. Delicious food, comfy rooms and pleasant common areas were just what we needed, and Betsy is a charming yet unobtrusive host. We would definitely come back.

Lovely bed and breakfast in the village of Gambier, Ohio. Very relaxing and peaceful. Gracious innkeeper. Delicious food. Will definitely stay here again.


4,8 su ottobre 21, 2013

Our son is a Kenyon senior, and during the past 4 years we have stayed several times at the college inn, at a nice chain motel in Mt. Vernon, and at an upscale hotel near the Columbus airport. But Gambier House is by far the best and most enjoyable place we've stayed. The location is perfect, the breakfasts are delicious and filling (and vary each morning), and the house is extremely comfortable. There are two large sitting rooms with comfortable couches and chairs for reading, a front porch with rockers, and a lovely enclosed garden in the rear. The innkeeper could not be more helpful or knowledgeable about things to do in central Ohio (if you want to get away from campus for, say, biking or sightseeing). There's free kitchen access, with a section of the refrigerator dedicated to guests for beer, yogurt, etc. The house dates back to the 19th century (in keeping with Gambier and Kenyon), so the floors creak and some ceilings are lower than in a modern structure, but for us, at least, that's part of the charm of Gambier, where the Amish still sell baskets, preserves, and needlework on Middle Path each Saturday. All in all, a significant enhancement of the Kenyon experience.

Magical weekend in Gambier

5 su ottobre 16, 2013

A small group of my alumna friends decided to gather in Gambier for a spontaneous reunion and the carriage house at the Gambier House appealed to us because of the small kitchen and living space. We had a surprise extra guest and Betsy was so understanding about her joining us. We only were able to eat one of our two breakfasts, but the waffles were delicious and Betsy provided an alternative fruit for me since I'm allergic to apple (really, I know!). We've all stayed at the Kenyon Inn, but the Gambier House provided to intimate and relaxed feel that we wanted for our visit. Thanks Betsy!!

beautiful on campus B&B

Great choice when visiting Kenyon College

4,4 su settembre 01, 2013

I stayed at the Gambier House in late August. I had the Victorian Room, which was very pretty and comfortable. Gambier is a very small, safe town and I arrived to find a note on the door welcoming me inside and letting me know where to find my room key. Betsy's breakfast the next morning was superb, and I enjoyed the conversation with her and with fellow guests. Her dog, Hotspur, is very nice, enjoying affection but not forcing himself on anyone.

Great stay at the Gambier House!

4,8 su agosto 30, 2013

I recently stayed with my son and daughter on a visit to Kenyon and was very impressed with this B&B. We stayed in the Green Room which was comfortable for three. The owner was very accommodating with our late arrival and served us a wonderful breakfast in the morning.

The only Bed and Breakfast in Gambier Ohio.

3,8 su agosto 25, 2013

Worth it just for the breakfast.Really amazing .So convenient for Kenyon as it is actually on the campus and the other option to stay is never available and more expensive.This is also barely available and even runs a lottery once you have stayed there so you have a chance of paying to stay there again!!

4,8 su agosto 10, 2013

We stayed at the Gambier House for three days in August, 2013, while we were on a college tour of the "Ohio Six Colleges." The location is perfect (just across the street from Kenyon College), and the service was excellent. The breakfasts were wonderful, and took into account the fact that my child's a vegetarian (even though we are omnivores). The only negative is that the lighting is pretty dim inside; this may have something to do with it being an older house, with older circuitry, but I found this a little disconcering.

Lovely, Fantastic Breakfast

Very comfortable, clean accommodations and one of the best breakfasts ever, homemade and lovely.

Was perfect for the occasion

4,8 su luglio 10, 2013

I was in town for a wedding, and it was absolutely perfect. The inn keeper was a bit quirky, but extremely helpful and nice. When I was trying to get information on where a local bar was from the front at the Kenyon Inn (I was visiting friends), they couldn't help me out. The Innkeeper at the Gambier House knew exactly what I was talking about and exactly how to get there. The rooms were classy, the service was excellent, the food was delicious, and the dogs were lovely. Kind of expensive though.

my daughter and I stayed in the Victorian Room the night before visiting Kenyon College. The bed is small for two people, but it was comfortable. The toiletries provided were very nice including glycerine soap. My daughter found a small trap door in the floor and their was a note inside. That was fun and she left a note for the next adventurous guest. Breakfast was delicious, and the location was right on campus so very convenient.

Cozy and Clean in Gambier

4,4 su giugno 29, 2013

I was looking for a one-night pit stop for a workshop I was attending at Kenyon College. Gambier is a quaint and vibrant small town with good food, a coffee shop, and bookstore, everything I need to feel completely content. Plus, the campus is more than lovely. The Gambier House is a block from the cluster of eateries and books. The hostess provides a generous breakfast of locally grown healthy and delicious food. The house is delightful, clean, cozy.. I stayed in The Master Bedroom which has a large soaking tub, complete with a brass swam spigot, and a vintage vanity. I hope to return one day and have a longer stay at Gambier House.

Clean, well kept, great food: what more could you ask for? Between my wife and I, we have stayed here 3 times and will continue to every time we're in Gambier or surrounding area after my daughter graduates from Kenyon. We have stayed in many B&Bs and this is at the top of the list. Keep up the good work, Betsy!

Wonderful stay, beautiful home and warm and welcoming innkeeper. Loved being able to hang out in the parlor- really felt like home. Only downside was that the internet access was sketchy unless you were in the living room area. Hard to get it from in the bedroom. Other than that our stay was fantastic!

Very quaint

4,4 su gennaio 23, 2013

Walking into this B&B reminded me so much of my grandparent's home from childhood. I loved it. The only complaint I have is that in my particular room it was very cold. Initially, I found a window cracked and vents closed but even after resolving both issues I still found it quite chilly throughout the night and by morning. Other than that, Betsy was quite accommodating and I would return if my son chooses Kenyon College.

Loved our stay here!

Quick stay near Kenyon College

5 su dicembre 12, 2012

This is a wonderful B&B virtual on Kenyon's campus. We have stayed a couple of times, and would do it again. The house is early to mid 19th century, warmly decorated, and quite cozy and comfy. The innkeeper doesn't live in the house, so isn't "all in your business" but she lives right next to the house, and is very attentive! Breakfast is "to die for"!!!! We have only stayed in the Master and the Old Library, which had very nice private bathrooms, with very nice soaps and shampoos, and really, really nice towels! I understand the other rooms have private baths as well. No TV in bedrooms, but there is one in the common family room. Not sure if this is typical, but my husband was pretty pleased. I don't have a lot of B&B experience, but I would certainly recommend Gambier House, and would stay again!

Carriage house

3,6 su dicembre 09, 2012

We stayed in the Carriage House. Was very pleasant and comfortable. Downstairs is nice size sitting area, bathroom and kitchen. So, would be great if you want to bring a couple of guests in for some food or drinks at your room. Quirky set up with bedroom upstairs and bathroom downstairs. There was a 2nd bed in the loft area at the top of the stairs, but I don't think there was a door between that and the main bedroom. The bathroom seemed a little old, but everything worked fine and was clean. Very welcoming when we arrived. Breakfast of fresh fruit, bacon and waffles was very nice. The common sitting areas seemed very nice, although we di not have time to use them. The price was a little high for primarily just spending the night there, but if we wanted a kid of "home base" while visiting Gambier, it would be very good.

Charming and will definitely return here!

3,8 su novembre 29, 2012

Had a lovely 1 night stay to visit my daughter at Kenyon. Breakfast was truly delicious, consisting of baked oatmeal with fruit and chicken sausage, freshly baked pastries, juice and tea.

A Very Pleasant Weekend Stay

5 su ottobre 21, 2012

My wife and I stayed in the Green Room at Gambier House on a recent October weekend. It was beautiful fall weather with nothing really big happening on campus. Several other rooms were occupied, but I believe the house was not entirely sold out. Our stay was very pleasant and quite satisfactory in every way. Our room was very comfortable, just as pictured on the web site. The weather was cool enough to leave the windows open during the day and enjoy the heat from the space heater at night. One thing that is perhaps not obvious from the web descriptions it that this house is very close to downtown Gambier and the Kenyon College campus. Both weekend nights, there was the noise of young people walking by until midnight or later that was clearly audible through the closed windows. As a Kenyon, alum, it was just like good old times, but some might find issue with it.

During a recent visit to see Kenyon College with our high schooler, we stayed at this lovely B&B. Other than the beds being a "hotel-sized" queen-sized bed (smaller than our queen bed at home), we had no complaints. The room was graciously appointed and everything about our stay was wonderful. We would glad stay here again, if our child decides to come to Kenyon!

Overnight at Gambier House

3,4 su ottobre 15, 2012

Gambier House was lovely, charming, and very convenient for our overnight stay during a college visit. The friendly hosts served a delicious breakfast, and we enjoyed visiting with other guests. Our only complaint was that the ground floor room was quite chilly, and there was no obvious way to adjust the temperature. As a consequence, we had to sleep in our jackets.

Wonderful visit

Breakfast worth getting up for

4,4 su ottobre 01, 2012

The Gambier House is a charming B&B on the campus of Kenyon College. The rooms are adequate, but the public spaces offer many more opportunities for enjoyment. On a beautiful early fall evening, we enjoyed the back patio and courtyard for a dinner we picked up at a carry-out along with a bottle of wine. The breakfast the next morning was elegant and excellent. It was an egg soufle of some type, served with excellent fresh fruits and coffee cakes. It was served on fine china in the main dining room, which created a full experience. Overall, this was good value for the money, mainly because the location was excellent for visiting Kenyon College and we really felt we were getting something of value in the breakfast.

Lovely, classic B&B

4,2 su settembre 27, 2012

The Drawer Room was perfect for one (the double bed was a bit small, in my opinion, for two unless you like to snuggle). The bathroom was beautiful, hidden behind a false door of drawers. Not the perfect choice if you want a lot of light, but great if you prefer a dark room to sleep in. Breakfast was delicious and I really appreciated their flexibility in start time. Very clean and comfortable, lots of antiques and creaky old floors. Completely enjoyed my experience.

Prepare to be spoiled!

The town is charming.The rooms are beautiful and immaculate. The gourmet breakfasts are delicious and satisfying. Can't wait to return next year for a longer stay!

Visiting Kenyon

3,4 su settembre 20, 2012

We stayed here one night while my daughter was visiting Kenyon. The prices in the area are all high. I have a feeling there are too few rooms available. The house is old and comfortable. The wifi worked well. The bathroom was small but livable. The beds were clean and comfortable. The breakfast was excellent. It was really nice that we were able to keep our car in the lot even after check-out. Overall, it was a good experience and I will likely stay there again if our daughter is accepted.

Thanks for a great visit!

Everything about our stay was wonderful. The room was great, breakfasts were delicious and it just was an all-around great weekend. Thanks.

Fantastic breakfast!

The Gambier House has fantastic staff, excellent breakfast and cookies, and a wonderful atmosphere. The beds are a little stiff for my taste, and the house is beginning to show its age. Everything is clean and tidy.

Fine Lodging for Kenyon College Visitors

5 su settembre 01, 2012

This lovely inn was perfect in every way. We stayed in the master bedroom, which had a queen bed and very large bathroom. The room and rest of the home were beautifully decorated. The innkeepers were very friendly and offered a delicious and healthy breakfast each morning. The off-street parking was an added bonus. Everything on the college campus is an easy walk from the inn, which is centrally located in Gambier.

Wonderful introduction to Gambier and Kenyon

Betsy was a wonderul host and we felt quite at home. Our room, including the bathroom, was very nice, and the rest of house (dining room, living room, family room) was very comfortable. We had all-hours access to the kitchen, with its refrigerator, coffee/tea and cookies, which was appreciated! Breakfast was a delight. Did not have a chance to enjoy the terrace in the back. We look forward to our return! Kevin and Julie Granville

Outstanding B and B

We could not have been happier with our stay, the continental breakfast was delicious and there was a great variety to choose from. We had problems with our son's laptop and did not have time to fix it at home, Kim helped us by asking around for local computer repair shoprs. She went the extra mile. We would definitely come back again, the rooms were very clean and the beds comfortable.

Gorgeous Historic Property

Set in the beautiful town of Gambier, just off the Kenyon College campus--one of the most beautiful in America, the Gambier House B&B offers quiet and clean accommodations in historic surroundings, in and out!

Gambier House was Great !!

Betsy was wonderful and could not have been more nice. She was warm and friendly and made us feel like we were visiting a friends home.The food was homemade and delicious for our breakfast. Everything in our room was spotless and provided warmth & comfort. A great experience !! I'd stay here again.

A great B&B experience

5 su agosto 16, 2012

We only stayed one night. However, they were very accomodating with our dietery requests and the food, presentation, and service were superb. The room was very clean and comfortable with all the amenities needed and the home touch. If my child decides to attend Kenyon, I would make sure to reserve a room there way ahead of time. Thank you!

Our stay during Pelotonia

4,6 su agosto 14, 2012

Everything was at/above expectations! I would recommend this B&B to anyone traveling in this area; especially visiting Kenyon College. Check-in and check-out were super easy, there was plenty of parking, and the food was great! I would choose a different room next time as there were minor inconveniences in the one we stayed in (Victorian Room - floors inhibited easy opening/closing of doors, weird bathroom setup), but it didn't detract from the experience. Thanks for a great stay!

We heart Betsy (and Hotspur)

Friendly atmosphere, tempered with Betsy's flexibility (thanks again) , made our stay memorable. The French Toast alone will keep us coming back

We had a wonderful stay. A quiet retreat within walking distance of everything on campus. Great service and food.

Carriage House Stay

2,8 su luglio 11, 2012

We stayed in the carriage house suite for two nights. We chose this room because it was the only one with a TV, and we wanted to have that feature "just in case". The room itself was fine - nothing spectacular, but certainly acceptable. The TV had a very small screen (19", I'm guessing), which turned out to be less of a "plus" than I had anticipated. With the low prices for TVs today, I would suggest the innkeeper put in a somewhat larger set - it would be a small investment which would undoubtedly have a favorable impact on those who rent this room.

Wonderful experience!

4,6 su luglio 05, 2012

The room was lovely, the innkeeper was wonderful, and the food was fantastic!


3,6 su luglio 01, 2012

Lovely place to stay

5 su luglio 01, 2012

We were in Gambier to do a college visit to Kenyon. The location was perfect - a two minute walk (if that) to Admissions. The room was comfortable and quiet - and breakfast the next morning was terrific! - individual cheese souffles, fresh fruit salad, homemade blueberry muffins, homemade jam -- Parking was available in the back of the house, and Betsy said it was OK to leave the car there until we were done with out tour of Kenyon. Even the other guests were fun to talk to!

A Real Gem

My Excellent Weekend

5 su aprile 30, 2012

I stayed to attend the Dad's weekend at my son's Kenyon fraternity. I arricved Friday about 5PM and left Sunday at 11AM. The Gambier House is right there on campus which meant I had easy back and forth access to the events and to the bed, for napping (Can't keep up with the Frat Boys.

Five star B&B.

5 su aprile 26, 2012

We've stayed at the Gambier House at least seven times since 2005. Every visit has been a pleasure. It's a very comfortable place, breakfasts are delicious and the innkeeper is marvelous.

Wise Choice

5 su aprile 26, 2012

I recently stayed at Gambier House while my daughter attended a Kenyon College accepted students weekend. What a wise choice that turned out to be. Not only was the B&B comfortable, charming and in very close proximity to the college, but being able to converse with the other guests, most of whom had a connection to the college, was very helpful to me. However, I would have enjoyed my stay at this B&B no matter where it was located. The breakfasts were outstanding. The rooms were scrupulously clean and very comfortable. The fact that it offered wireless internet was way beyond my expectations!

Best place to stay in Gambier!

4,8 su aprile 25, 2012

Feels more like a stay at a family member's house than your typical bed and breakfast experience. Betsy was very sweet and welcoming, taking the time to explain everything around the house before we checked in. A great taste of midwestern hospitality!

Perfect for Kenyon Parent or anyone

4,0 su febbraio 24, 2012

I thoroughly enjoyed my stay. The room and bathroom were spacious for one person and very clean, quiet, and charming. The innkeeper graciously lowered the cost of my room because of my significant dietary concerns that limit my ability to eat most breakfast foods. The location was perfect for my visit with my daughter, a Kenyon student, and was a walk from restaurants. Also, the price was right.

Needs upkeep but great location

Great stay in the Carriage Suite

We stayed in the suite that included a small, but fully equipped kitchen, cable TV, WiFi reception, and considerable privacy (being separated from the main building by an enclosed, plant-filled breezeway). The bedroom is upstairs with an extra bed on the upstairs landing. The inn is utterly charming as in the proprietress. The common areas are comfortable and sehr gemütlich!

You should visit downtown Gambier!

5 su dicembre 20, 2011

I have stayed at Gambier House several times over the three years our daughter has been a student at Kenyon College. Innkeeper Betsy makes a great breakfast, whether the best whole wheat blueberry pancakes you ever ate or a frittata loaded with fresh vegetables. I am looking forward to returning in the fall!

Gambier B&B

4,6 su dicembre 14, 2011

The innkeeper was very accommodating. The house was quiet and spacious and extremely convenient to campus. Our room was lovely although the bed groaned (loudly) when getting in and out--I guess all antiques have their idiosycracies. We would definitely stay there again.

A Perfect B & B

Gambier House: First Choice Visiting Kenyon

4,8 su settembre 05, 2011

I've stayed at the Gambier House on three occasions, and my daughter is only beginning her sophomore at Kenyon. This comfortable, homelike bed and breakfast is right against the heart of Kenyon's beautiful, small campus. The breakfasts are delightful, the hostess is extremely helpful and kind, and her breakfasts are first class.

Another good stay at Gambier House

Rooms are a little quirky, but food and hospitality are very good.

Best place to stay in Kenyon College and Knox County area

4,6 su settembre 05, 2011

The location is perfect for visiting Kenyon College, or spending a weekend on the Kokosing Gap Trail and exploring Amish country. The rooms are well-appointed and comfortable, and the breakfast is fabulous and ample. The innkeeper was a professional baker, so the menu changes daily and a weekend visit offers lots of variety. There are many amenities to make your stay very welcoming, including suggestions of activities in the surrounding area if you can drag yourself away from the rocking chairs on the front porch.

Warm welcome and much help with advice about local resources from our hostess. Our room (Victorian) and bed were very comfortable, breakfast was terrific, and the location perfect, with Kenyon right at our door. The price was reasonable for all the pluses. I don't like the rating system of this site, though, where 3 stars means "met my expectations"--I had high expectations for Gambier House, and they were met, but 3 stars seems like such a lukewarm endorsement.

Why Gambier House Rules

5 su agosto 22, 2011

If you are visiting Kenyon College or are passing through the area around Gambier this is the place to stay--ideally located directly across the street from Kenyon (2 min walk) in a wonderful old Victorian run by Betsy Herr. Betsy is a great innkeeper, with rooms that are pristine, full of Victorian character and including a great breakfast and off-street parking. This is our "go to" residence when we visit Kenyon.

Kenyon College Visit

We so enjoyed the stay at the Gambier House. Betsy was so knowledgeable of the area and made the stay extra special. We look forward to another visit. Mt. Vernon and Kenyon College offered a perfect spot for this bed and breakfast.

Superb breakfast in sleepy college town

The room was large and quaint, the bathroom was a little cramped. The service was courteous and helpful - but only available for limited hours. The service at breakfast was fast and attentive.

College Visit in Gambier Ohio

5 su maggio 05, 2011

My family of three stayed in the Library Room at The Gambier House in April during a visit to Kenyon Clollege. The B&B is right in the middle of the small town and wonderfully convenient to the college. Our room was very comfortable, fantastic bed and sheets, and the breakfasts were beyond delicious. It was so nice to relax in the common rooms after our long drive from Vermont and since it was rainy we didn't walk around as much as expected. The innkeeper was attentive to our needs, but gave us our space as well. She always had cookies fresh from the oven ready for us all, and loaned us an umbrella for our tour. We met some very interesting people at breakfasts, even another prospective student from Vermont! All in all a FANTASTIC place to stay! We loved it. One tiny minus...if it's rainy the raindrops play the drums on the bulkhead outside the Library window and kept us awake one night. Didn't have the heart to tell the innkeeper, but I'm sure she would've made it right if we had told her.

Excellent hospitality in peaceful tranquility

5 su maggio 01, 2011

We arrived late, so there were post it notes everywhere telling us how to get to our room and to ask us what we wanted for breakfast. The Green Room is very large, the 2 queen beds comfortable and cozy. The breakfast was plentiful and excellent. What a wonderful place to stay when you are visiting Kenyon is right next to the campus.

The Gambier House Bed and Breakfast is a place I have stayed many times. The proprietor, Betsy, is always welcoming, helpful and makes a wonderful breakfast, even for those of us with dietary problems. It is charming, comfortable, and could not be more conveniently located when visiting Kenyon College or the surrounding area.

By far the best B & B in the towns around Gambier, Ohio.

4,4 su aprile 25, 2011

Our two children both attended Kenyon College in Gambier so we've stayed at the Gambier House many times. Without exception every stay has been great. Innkeeper Elizabeth Heer is most welcoming and accommodating. Her breakfasts are delicious. The rooms are all beautiful and very comfortable. A highlight of our last visit was the game of Scrabble we played in one of the common living rooms. We feel very much at home staying there.

Ideal location for Kenyon College; other guests were friendly and either visiting students/family or on college trips with parents. Innkeeper (Betsy) was wonderful and helpful. Each breakfast was different and tasty. Library and rooms were well stocked with books and magazines. Bed and chairs were comfortable. Only minor point of inconvenience was showering in the narrow, freestanding tub.

The Best Breakfast Ever

4,6 su aprile 14, 2011

Such a wonderful bed and breakfast with the most amazing breakfast ever! My guests and I could not remember the last time we ate so well before noon. From this point forward, I will only stay here when I am in Gambier! It was truly cozy enough to be a wonderful home away from home.

Excellent in every way

5 su aprile 10, 2011

For us, Gambier House exceeded our expectations. The rooms were great - well-apportioned, quiet, and clean. What made our two-day visit special was the service and attention to detail. One example - on our way in, we got lost (GPS didn't cut it that far off the beaten path), and our host literaly talked us in, staying on the phone a good 15 minutes. I'd heartily recommend Gambier House.

Great location!

4,6 su aprile 06, 2011

Gambier House is a lovely place, warm and inviting. The breakfasts were a little carb-heavy... but maybe that's just me being picky since I prefer lighter fare to start the day. (I did eat everything in front of me and it tasted great.)

I hope to go back for our anniversary next year!

this is a lovely alternative to the standard, and lesser, choices in Mt. Vernon, which are either borderline, or acceptable with no character. Gambier is a lovely town, the campus is beautiful and quiet. the room in the Drawer Room was just fine for me on my own, and the breakfast food was fabulous. This will be my standard choice next time I visit my mother in Mt. Vernon.

We booked the Master Bedroom as it had the tub and fireplace. We were sad to learn (when we got there) that the tub was not a Jacuzzi tub, and the fireplace in the room did not work. We did have a warm, cozy real fire in the game room. It was a nice evening away.

Risposta del proprietario
When the reservation was made no one specifically asked about the using the fireplace, which, at this time, is not functional. We are working to remedy the situation. This room has a lovely bathtub but we do not have, or advertise, any jacuzzis at The Gambier House.

This is a great place to stay in Gambier, especially if you want to be close to Kenyon College. Betsy, the owner, is a wonderful cook and provides more than you can eat at breakfast. The rooms are confortable and clean. The only drawback was that the house seemed colder downstairs in the living areas than what was comfortable.

Very Satisfied

This was an excellent choice; I couldn't have felt more at home during my two night stay. Betsy was very personable and a gracious hostess. Although my home is only a two hour drive away, I will definitely consider staying over during my future visits to Kenyon College.

A touch of Ohio gentility

4,8 su ottobre 24, 2010

This is the second time I have visited the Gambier House. Several of my relatitives have stayed there over the years. Attraction rather than promotion. The rooms have a most warm and comfortable feel to them. Not ornate and overstuffed with things, as is the case with many B&B's. The rooms to me are spacious enough. I stayed in the Victorian Room, just right for a parent and child, who might be visiting the tree-lined, old New England-looking Kenyon College, famous for its Kenyon Review. I visited in the fall and the maples were in their full colors. The breakfast was pure organic and healthy, clear down to the free range chicken eggs poached in pastry shells, one day, and whipped in a cake slice size piece of a french toast dish like something I have never tasted before, covered with locally tapped pure maple syrup. The inkeeper is highly organized and helpful. I found myself sitting with my coffee each morning in either of two common areas that were furnished like the old elegant Ohio houses that I am s familiar with. It is a minute's walk to the heart of the Kenyon campus and coffee shops and a fabulous bookstore. There are some famous writers who frequent this area regularly. There is no hustle and bustle in this tiny, elegantly simple village. The inkeeper lets her beautiful, well-behaved English Setter lay around during breakfast. He doesn't bother you. Though he is the only dog allowed, he adds a country touch to the wooden floored cherry dining room. That, and the homemade ginger cookies to snack on made my visit memorable. It is by far the best in the area, and I have stayed in 4 of them.


4,6 su ottobre 24, 2010

Stayed in Library room--spacious wih nice updated bathroom and Queen and twin bed so easy for three people. The breakfast was outstanding with homemade goodies and congenial company. Common rooms pleasant and welcoming. Would stay again any time of year.

Charming stay on a lovely campus

5 su ottobre 20, 2010

My husband and I stayed two nights in the Master Bedroom at the Gambier House while visiting our daughter at Kenyon College. We were welcomed by our hostess and immediately made to feel at home. Our room was lovely, and included a gas fireplace and a full bathroom complete with a large tub and a bidette. Guests also have access to two spacious sitting rooms, the kitchen refrigerator, and a cookie jar that is always filled with home made treats. Breakfasts were served between 8:30 and 10:00 each morning and included a choice of hot chocolate, tea or coffee, that we had specified the night before. Each meal also included a fruit dish and orange juice. Saturday breakfast consisted of a warm, spiced apple compote followed by Belgian waffles and crisp bacon. Sunday brought a fresh fruit cup with a touch of mint, followed by an exceptional mushroom and red pepper fritata served with wheat toast and an avocado-cilantro salsa. Needless to say, I was too full to sample the nut bread! The Gambier House has been a home away from home for us as we have visited our daughter at college. She is a senior this year, and we will miss the good food, warm hospitality and small town comfort of this B&B after she graduates.

Gambier House--Wonderful!!

5 su ottobre 17, 2010

We stayed in the beautiful master bedroom last year, but have opted for the carriage house suite this year. Great breakfasts, lovely rooms, adorable English Setter, and Betsy, the perfect hostess. She does everything you need, but is unobtrusive yet friendly. We'll be coming back every year.

Conveniently located in this delightful college town, within walking distance of everything you could possibly want to see or do. Betsy made us feel welcome and breakfast was beyond special. If we pass this way again or even close, we would make this a must stop on our list.

Maximum Satisfaction!!

Our only negative was the bed and mattress. It was a little too soft for us, and more so than you would find in a hotel. But, this one thing aside, we had a wonderful time. Betsy, the owner was delightful and interesting to chat with. You could not meet a more friendlier and helpful host. We will certainly return if we have an opportunity to do so.
