The Gambier House is cozy, charming, very clean, very convenient to Kenyon College--you won't even need your vehicle--and Innkeeper Betsy makes a daily gourmet breakfast. Although it is a bread and breakfast, each room is situated so that guests barely see the other guests. I've stayed at the Kenyon Inn (when it is available, which is almost never since Kenyon College reserves it entirely for its own guests all too frequently), and I have found the Gambier Inn to be much more hospitable and definitely has better breakfasts. I am only sorry we only discovered the Gambier Inn at the end of our son's junior year at Kenyon.

My boyfriend and I stayed at the Gambier House for only one night, but we wish we could have stayed longer. We were absolutely charmed by the house, our room and host Betsy's hospitality. (Don't pass up her waffles!) The house -- inside and out -- was very lovely and a very short walk to the main part of campus as well as restaurants. Our room was large, and the bathroom was gigantic, with a dressing nook and a large soaking tub. Would definitely stay here again if visiting Kenyon College.

With sadness these past 4 years have flown by and this Fall we had a wonderful stay at the Gambier House...Betsy's breakfasts and freshly baked cookies cannot be beat. Her breakfast service is the perfect way to start a busy day.

We wish we had another child enrolling in Kenyon College so that we can stay at this lovely B&B.

It is the BEST location in town with the most welcoming the TV room, lovely living room, kitchen complete with round the clock cookies, coffee, tea, etc., porch, back garden area, and a place for our college student to stop by on her way to and from class.

We were lucky enough to win a room in the Graduation lottery...can hardly wait to get back!
Thank you Betsy for making our stays so comfortable.

With an amazing location on a tree lined street, steps to the Middle Ground Cafe, looking toward the Church of the Holy Spirit on campus - this warm and welcoming B&B can't be beat. The common areas downstairs are very comfortable with great magazines and publications and a kitchen that offers round the clock freshly baked cookies, coffee, tea and cold drinks. Betsy is a fabulous chef who whips up well balanced breakfasts using the freshest ingredients.
Wish we had gone to Kenyon College but visiting our child in Gambier and staying at the Gambier House is a treat!

The Gambier House is an excellent choice for any traveler (honeymooners included!). The rooms are comfortable and well decorated. Betsy, the innkeeper, is fabulous. She is very accommodating and friendly, but stays out of the way.
I have never liked eggs, but Betsy's breakfast has made me a believer. She leaves delicious cookies in the cookie jar for that late night snack, and makes the place really feel like a home away from home.
