Hear what our guests had to say...
Slice of Heaven in OHIO! My daughter and I were on a college tour of Ohio. We decided to stay outside of Kenyon and I'm very glad that we did. The converted barn is a beauty and the flora and fauna around it are breathtaking. Patricia was the consummate hostess and provided a very helpful tour and even stocked the fridge with some essentials before we arrived! From the Keurig coffee maker to the Nest thermostat, the loft had all the modern conveniences with a lot more history and hominess than any other choice of accommodation in the area. My only regret is that we didn't get the chance to spend more time in the area!
A+++ Beautiful, tranquil, well-appointed, cared for and cozy, Gambier Loft was all we expected and more. Patricia was a warm, generous host and thought of literally everything! Big and small touches made our stay extra special. And you can't beat waking up to that gorgeous view of the countryside. Enthusiastically recommended! A+++
Awesome!!! Great place and great hosts!!
Outstanding! Thank you for everything. Would recommend to anyone staying in area.
Thank you again,
We stayed 1 night and Patricia went out of her way to make sure we had everything we needed. I really enjoyed just "looking" at the renovation to the loft. It was exactly what we had hoped for.
Magnificent Accommodations!!!! I cannot say enough good things about the Gambier Loft! From the cozy loft to the spectacular property and gorgeous country side, a stay at the loft truly is a respite for the soul. If you need a quiet getaway with your spouse, your friends, or just you- Gambier Loft is the place to go. Not only are the accommodations pristine, Patricia is an absolutely delightful host. Like I said, I cannot say enough good things about the Gambier Loft- book a stay there ASAP and you will know first-hand just what an amazing experience it is!
Long Weekend In Gambier - My wife and children and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Gambier Loft, and everything about our stay was fantastic. The Gambier Loft is situated in a spectacular location with views in every direction. The lodging was incredibly comfortable and the hospitality was as good as it gets. Patricia and Alan are kind, thoughtful, and generous, and they made us feel welcome throughout our stay. The home is a fascinating blend of old and new with a beautiful antique barn structure renovated into a new and modern home. The old beams are visible throughout, giving the place a historic feel, but the outside and inside are all wonderfully finished with a modern, country feel. I can't say enough good things about this place, and it certainly is a place we will return to again - every time we come to visit Kenyon. Highly recommend this place to anyone who is looking for a peaceful retreat in the heart of beautiful farm country. Especially well located for people visiting Kenyon College as it is just a couple miles away from the campus.
Beautiful spot for our anniversary getaway! We really enjoyed our time at Gambier Loft. It was a lovely place to spend our 27th Anniversary. There were many personal touches and thoughtful additions that made our stay wonderful....the delicious pastries, luxurious linens and fresh flowers to name a few. We would recommend it as a great place to stay for any occasion! Mark & Lois M.
Absolutely lovely, clean and modern
We did a two night stay with Patricia as we had a family wedding in the next town over. After just a few hours we were wishing we had booked longer. The loft was immaculate, very modern and clean, yet had this beautiful rustic farm vibe. The kitchen was stocked with the perfect essentials to help us survive our two days with our little guys (2 and 5). Patricia was so sweet and helpful regarding things to do in the area. She also entertained and loved on our little boys each time they were out and running about. The farm was beautiful and the kids loved exploring the pond and the barns. My kids still ask about Butternut and Cooper, the house cats! On our 10 hour trek home my kids very much enjoyed the apples Patricia let us pick from the beautiful tree sitting right in front of the loft. Don't miss this secret spot if you are anywhere in the area. My husband and I already decided we need to come spend a week WITHOUT our kids! Renee R.
Charming property - A friend and I stayed at this property for one night. Overall, I can't say enough nice things about it - the loft itself is adorable in an idyllic setting and has every amenity you could need. Patricia and Alan are absolutely wonderful hosts as well. We were staying as part of a charity cycling event and they graciously offered to pick us up from Gambier so we wouldn't have to ride after a long day as we were without a car; Patricia even make sure we had items to cook breakfast with the next morning since we didn't have the opportunity to go to the store. We are looking forward to staying again! Andrea
Restful & Rejuvenating - We enjoyed our stay at the Gambier loft very much and will definitely be back! From the soft windblown trees to the chirping frogs in the pond to crackling fires at night everything was so relaxing. The attention to every detail at this loft was amazing! A lot of love & work went into creating a perfect retreat for others to enjoy which just proves the generous spirit of Patricia & Alan. Thanks for a great weekend! Heather W.
Beautiful, relaxing, and comfortable… My husband and I stayed at the Gambier Loft for a nice quiet weekend away from our busy life before baby #3 arrives. We had the most wonderful relaxing time! Picture the nicest hotel you've ever stayed in: now make it quieter and more private and add all the comforts of home. From the pictures, I knew what to expect visually, but the real beauty was in all the details. It was the little things like the soft throw blanket in the living room, the delicious pastries Patricia left for us, the simple things in the fridge like milk, cream, and orange juice, and the bathroom stocked with quality toiletries that made our stay truly exceptional. We did not want to leave this quiet little escape! This really was a treat! I will forever compare places I stay to this serene comfortable loft! Thanks Patricia and Alan! We hope to be back again! Leah
Hidden Gem! This getaway was a well-deserved excursion to celebrate our 12yr anniversary. The online reviews that we read before booking (though 100% positive) did not prepare us for the incredible stay. They truly thought of everything!! The craftsmanship displayed in the loft is absolutely beautiful and the location is perfect for anyone who can appreciate a serene setting. We can't wait to return again and hope that everyone else's stay there can allow them some of the relaxation and peace that we got to experience. Our sincere thanks to Patricia and Alan for creating this country oasis that we were able to enjoy. Jason M.
Amazing cottage in a beautiful location! We were headed to a wedding in nearby Mt Vernon, and happened upon the Loft. What a wonderful place to stay! Patricia and Alan were incredible kind and helpful, and the Loft itself is gorgeous, with everything we needed. Patricia even left us baked goods, milk, orange juice, and eggs for breakfast! Five of us comfortably shared the space, and it was the best value in the area by far. Thank you again, Patricia! Susan W.
Beautiful Place - The Gambier Loft exceeded all of our expectations as we returned for a visit to Kenyon College, our alma mater. The loft was inviting, immaculate and well appointed. The hosts were readily available and welcoming. Anyone visiting Kenyon College should definitely consider staying at The Gambier Loft. Margaret C.
Relaxing and Beautiful - We visited Kenyon for our reunion and stayed another day in this beautiful carriage home. Will certainly be coming back! Becky W.
Fantastic accommodation and hospitality! I stayed here with my daughter who was visiting Kenyon College. Patricia was exceptionally accommodating in all aspects. She greeted us when we arrived late at night and gave us a full tour. Wonderful homemade scones and cinnamon rolls where waiting in the Amish constructed full kitchen. The loft was truly adorable and homey. Beautiful floors, finishes and decorations. Top of the line towels and amenities. Truly like something you would see on Fixer Upper or another HGTV show. Instructions and notes throughout on cute mini blackboards. All the comforts of home including TV and Wi-fi. We wished we could have stayed for a relaxing weekend. Excellent Value!!
Wonderful place to stay! The Gambier Loft is a unique accommodation located in a very quiet area. The owners keep the place immaculate. We took a few days to tour the countryside. There are many tourist attractions in the area. It's close to Amish county without being in a busy tourist area. The view from the loft is beautiful. I would highly recommend The Gambier Loft for a quiet place to relax and get way for a few days. Granda B.
