The gracefully elegant mixture of Victorian and Country charm is an invitation to relax, take a deep breath, and enjoy all that surrounds you at The Gambier House in Gambier, Ohio. Whether entering through the cast-iron fence to the front door or by way of the trellised back courtyard, guests cannot help but be enveloped by the special warmth of this 1845 home, built by one of Kenyon College’s master carpenters. The inn features a formal parlor, family room, fireplaces, antiques, and hidden staircases. Choose from six beautifully decorated guestrooms – all private baths, and some have fireplaces. A gourmet breakfast is a prime attraction at the House. Specialties include country frittata, savory souffle, whole wheat buttermilk pancakes and french toast. All dishes are made with local ingredients when in season. Gambier is ideally situated in Knox County and only five miles away from Mount Vernon. As the home of Kenyon College, during the school year Gambier is the site of many athletic, academic and artistic attractions. Down the hill is the Kokosing Gap Trail and the Kokosing River; Amish Country is just a scenic drive away.
