Lovely historical home , meticulously restored. This 200 year old home is beautifully decorated with antiques. Tom the proprietor serves a delectable breakfast. The town has a great bicycle path, that was once a train bed. One can ride for miles. We enjoyed our stay and look forward to returning.

I grew up about four blocks from the Russell-Cooper House and had never set foot in it until this visit. I was in town to visit my father and didn't want to impose too much on him, so I opted to stay somewhere in town. The Russell-Cooper house is a very warm and welcoming place, and it is situated in...

I am not a b&b guy (I don't care for much conversation before noon) but my wife loves them. That being said, I enjoyed our stay at the Russell Cooper House. It was quaint and clean. Tom, the proprietor, made us welcome from the moment we arrived. The rooms are spacious and quiet - we had a full house but... More

Was in Mount Vernon for a class reunion and was immensely impressed with the RCH. Wonderful rest in beautiful room. Incredible breakfast. Will definitely stay there again next year.

There is a warm, cozy feeling as you enter the Russell-Cooper House which is nearly 190 years old. The rooms are large and comfortable each with their own private bath. There are many interesting antiques and the fire blazing in the living room makes it very homey. I have stayed at different times of the year but Christmastime is especially... More

I have stayed at the Russell-Cooper House many times, and my granddaughter and I and my family and friends have stayed there as well. We love it! Tom, the host, is very accommodating--he is extremely knowledgeable about the area (and his breakfasts are yummy). And the house itself is fascinating. The location is convenient for walking to historic downtown Mt.Vernon... More

My family and I have stayed multiple times and have never been disappointed ... convenient location and clean, large rooms. Tom, the owner, is a great guy and a wonderful host. He'll go the "extra mile" to ensure your stay is enjoyable - even if he can't accomodate you at his property! Last time I was in town all the... More

I booked a reservation 6 weeks in advance through Hotels.com. I recommend you call the inn directly to make a reservation because, when I called to confirm 5 days prior to my reservation, they informed me they had received my reservation but had failed to update the web, so had no room for me. Rather than contacting me or returning... More

Working at nearby Kenyon College, I was looking for a local property that I could stay during selected days throughout the Winter 2011. The Russell-Cooper House was a perfect choice. Location: The location is a few miles away from Kenyon College in Gambier, OH and centrally located on a residential street near quaint downtown Mt. Vernon, OH. Easily walkable to... More
