“Great, with a caution”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 8, 2013

Beautiful grounds, lovely, charming, clean rooms. One of the nicest B&B's we've stayed at. We were not told in advance this is a motel set up, our teenage daughter had her own room near the end where a gas station is hidden from view. Her window was unlocked (I almost didn't think of checking), my husband had to wrestle with it to get it to lock. Our window was unlocked as well. She was not able to dial our room phone from her room phone (it gave a busy signal). I didn't sleep well between concern for her (although she was perfectly content) and our too firm mattress and pillow. Don't let "motel set up" discourage you, this place is beautiful, charming and relaxing with lovely gardens out your door. Opposite the gardens is the house with dining room and breakfast there was very enjoyable. We hope to return.

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.

Tiny room made for single bed had two. Squeeze UNDER sink to sit in toilet. Closet doesn't open as bed blocks it. Only one table for +2 guests other than 1 that seats 8 for breakfast. Ancient hearing/cooling system. Could go on with problems encountered...

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.
