“Hospitable and Peaceful”
Reviewed September 16, 2013

We were looking for a place close to the Kokosing Gap Trail (a beautiful bike trail) and found this inn on Tripadvisor. It is very peaceful and the gardens were very beautiful. The complimentary breakfast was very nice; the dining room was beautiful and they provided both buffet items and an entrée choice. The buffet contained many choices of fruit including berries, homemade muffins, bagels and cereals. All the entrees included bacon or sausage which were delicious. Angie was particularly hospitable and friendly during our stay. We stayed in the cottage which was very nice; a large bathroom and a very comfy bed.

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.
