The Mount Vernon Inn
Ranked #2 of 5 Hotels in Mount Vernon
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed August 24, 2013

I have traveled to Mt. Vernon and Gambier for many years and found this to be the best place to stay in either town. It is certainly a bargain. With the exception of one B and B in Gambier, which is pricier and has fewer rooms, this is my favorite of the several options in the area.

We return each year to ride the Kokosing bike trail and then rest at a patio table in the beautiful flower gardens with the complimentary glass of wine. We put our packed dinner in our refrigerator and prepare it in the microwave in the room. ( don't forget plates and silver) They provide glasses and cups with the coffee maker. We really enjoy dinner in the garden.

The order off the menu breakfast is served in the main house and is delicious.

The rooms are nicely furnished but the bathroom is very small with a shower.

The grounds are adorable and the setting just lovely -- the rooms are immaculate and comfortable, the breakfast was delicious and the employees so friendly. Can't say enough good things about the Inn! There was a small miscommunication in the housekeeping of our originally reserved room but they had everything straightened out before we even arrived, upgrading us to a larger room. I would definitely stay here again.

My husband and I stayed at Mount Vernon Inn 4 days, while enjoying the graduation of our grandson from Mt Vernon High.The elegant beauty and peaceful atmosphere of this B&B was wonderful. The room was nice and modern, The staff earned an A+ for their helpfulness, friendliness, and dedication to the guests. The breakfasts were just what was needed to start our day.
We would recommend the Mt. Vernon Inn to anyone traveling in or near this area and will definately stay here in future visits.

The Mt Vernon Inn is by far one of the nicest small motels / B&Bs ! It is by far the nicest in the Mt Vernon / Gambier OH area. We have stayed there a number of times over the past 4 years when our daughter was a Kenyon College student. The management is very friendly and helpful and flexible - they go out of their way to make your stay perfect. The rooms are nicely appointed and some quite spacious. Even the smaller rooms are very nice indeed. The rooms and bathrooms are very clean. Extra amenities are provided in the room & bathroom such as microwave, coffee maker, fresh flowers, bathroom soaps, mouthwash, shampoo, body gel etc. The complimentary breakfasts are cooked to order for hot dishes and there is always great fresh fruit, muffins, cereal, yogurt, juice coffee, tea etc - all set in a lovely bright breakfast room / converted porch. Nice weather also affors sitting outdoors at tables in the beautifully landscaped garden surrounding the rooms. A glass of wine can be found at the bar in the evening. There is ample and safe parking right on the premesis. although this is a small family run place, they are very professional and kind and were able to handle the large # of guests staying there for Kenyon graduation. They keep good track of reservations on their system so no worries there either. I am only sorry that it may be some time before i have the pleasure of staying there again soon as my daughter has graduated.

Room Tip: Discuss the room selection with the staff to make sure you get the room you desire.
