  • This place is pure magic and far exceeded my expectations

  • The directions to this place are great! When you get into the gated area, and go down the hill and turn left, you will see serenity! Tranquility! Wonderful view of the Kokosing. Nothing better than a warm fire driven heat on a cold, snowy night and day. Sitting out on the bench in that cold, watching the show come down in the dark of the night! So peaceful, knowing the warmth of that fireplace will comfort you!! Just an amazing find! Virtually on the Kokosing River! The scenery is wonderful. We have been here one other time, in the tipi at the other end, in April of 19. The trailer campers are very respectful of you. This time, while in the cabin, we had the entire campground to ourselves! Ensuring true quiet, peace, tranquility! Bring hiking shoes, there is a nice, short trail around the bluff over to the Honey Run Falls and the walk back can be on the road of you want. It's not busy. Again, we had the park entirely to ourselves! The falls is beautiful. The cabin is open room and comfortable. You will get a great night sleep on that bed! If anything needed done, only as a suggestion, move the table to the sliding door, to enjoy the river as you eat. Not a big deal. I just fell in love with this place. One of my all time favorites in AirBnB, now! Apple Valley Amish store and Lannings is nearby going into Mt Vernon. The bicycle trail hugs the Kokosing River at the trailhead in Howard. You will LOVE the spot there! WE WILL BE BACK!!! Kim, the caretaker is very personable and full of energy and response! I can't say enough about her. So fantastic! Come here!!! Seriously...COME HERE!!!

  • Beautiful view!

    Sonya2020-02-08T00:00:00Z
  • Our third time staying here, and we will continuing coming! Amazing location, even in the winter. There are windows filling the walls and no curtains so maybe bring an eye mask if you wanna sleep in. Besides that, it is lovely!

    Maddalena2020-02-07T00:00:00Z
  • We keep coming back to this place over and over. What a great little experience.

    Iryna2020-02-02T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful views, peaceful area perfect for a weekend getaway. My husband and his brothers have gone here the past two years and have already started planning next years adventure. Two bald eagles were flying around the cabin all weekend. Local place for firewood if needed. Matt gives great details of what is available around the cabin for reference. Matt is quick to respond and checks in during your stay to make sure all is well. Would recommend this cabin and this host to anyone!

  • Great place. Loved the fire pit, as the moon rose over the Kokosing. Highly recommended for a “cabin by the river” experience.

    Matthew2020-02-01T00:00:00Z
  • A unique place. Awesome views from second floor great room. Loved the waterfall right Nextdoor. Beds were very comfortable.

    Mark2020-01-26T00:00:00Z
  • Where to start....one could say so much about this wonderful place Matt has created. My husband and I wanted to get away for a few days to celebrate our anniversary. This place was absolutely perfect for that. It offered a cozy atmosphere to enjoy. The living room being on the second floor was so nice to enjoy the scenery through all the large windows that surrounded you. This place is definitely nice and cozy. We hope to come back when it is nice outdoors as there was also a great outdoors set up with the fire pit in a wooded area or the deck off of the living room to watch the river from. Thanks again!!

    Updates include new custom kitchen with concrete counters and stainless steel appliances, new bathroom with walk in shower and all around general updates. Cozy 2 bedroom home is located directly on the Kokosing river thought to translate from the Algonquin Indians and mean “River of the Little Owls.” The cabin is a short distance to Kenyon College, Apple Valley lake, Ohio Amish country and tons and tons of great parks, hiking trails, bike trails and hunting.
    Located directly on the Kokosing river
    The cabin is located on the river. Although there are some neighbors, they are not so close to the property that you loose your privacy. The back yard leading to the river and the back deck are very large to entertain friends and family.
  • We had an excellent time at Al's place. The outdoor space is very relaxing and accommodating. All of the extra touches were great also.

    Brittany2020-03-10T00:00:00Z
  • Very peaceful

    Jennifer2020-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • This place is a hidden gem. We have been 3 times and will go back. Lots of special touches and very relaxing and is in a beautiful setting on the water. Highly recommended.

    Jenny2020-03-01T00:00:00Z
  • Everything about this place was amazing. The hosts thought of every detail to make us feel welcome and comfortable. Extra touches were a delicious loaf of homemade pumpkin bread, a btl of wine and other wonderful extras. The river right by the house made for a beautiful setting. The bed was extremely comfortable as were the sofa and loveseat in living area. For us, the only thing was the house itself being a little closer to road. You can hear vehicles driving by. That would not stop me from Staying there again though because being so near the river made it a beautiful property. I would totally recommend.

    Michelle2020-02-17T00:00:00Z
  • This cabin has stunning views of the river from almost every room. Much attention to detail and cozy and sparkling clean. We hiked for approximately 17 miles at the nearby preserves, and thoroughly enjoyed coffee and wine in the relaxing hot tub.

    Kim2020-02-09T00:00:00Z
  • This cabin is so cozy and feels just like home! The views are great and the back deck was an awesome amenity. We'd love to come back!

    Emily2020-02-02T00:00:00Z
  • Such a lovely place! They thought of everything, even a bottle of wine and ultra cozy comforters. It was easy to get in, make ourselves at home, and enjoy everything. Definitely would book again!

    Megan2020-01-05T00:00:00Z

With activities for the whole family such as kayaking, paddleboarding, fishing, hiking, and swimming. Don't miss this incredible find!
    There's no better location in Ohio! The Tipi sits about 100 feet from the beautiful Kokosing river.
  • Cool camping in great location!

    Alexzandria2020-02-09T00:00:00Z
  • One of our favorite places to stay. Relaxing and secluded.

    Steve2020-01-01T00:00:00Z
  • So amazing!

    Vanessa2019-11-24T00:00:00Z
  • 10/10 would recommend if you are looking for a different camping experience. The tipi was so neat and different to stay in. While looking for cabins to rent for our anniversary I came across Matt’s tipi and immediately was sold. I will say that even though this is advertised as “glampling” that this is still very much so camping. Not saying that this is wrongly advertised, I just had a misconception of what glamping is. With that being said make sure to grab your camping supplies to take with you such as cutlery and lanterns. We only stayed for 2 nights and the fact we only live about 40 mins away we managed just fine. Also it was nice that since this is the off season for camping we pretty much had the camp ground to ourselves. It was quiet and peaceful. I would rent again in the future.

    Laci2019-10-27T00:00:00Z
  • It’s a great spot for a quick weekend getaway. When we went no one else was there so it was nice to be secluded. We’ll definitely be back again soon!

    Nikole2019-10-08T00:00:00Z
  • the pictures don't do the tipi's justice bc they are outstanding! Def take a small hike to the falls just follow the trail up the creek along the rock wall. Nice little extra hidden find. The beds are comfy and so are the couches. Loved the heating blankets on the beds for a cool night. Absolutely recommended and the best

    Michele2019-10-05T00:00:00Z

    Tipi steps away from the Scenic Kokosing steps away. If 15 acres of pristine riverfront property, great fishing, hiking, kayaking, or just sitting around a campfire is what you’re looking for this is the place. Many memories have been created, and will continue to be created by many.
    The caves campground is are unique property found in Ohio. From the sounds of the river and the nature around you, you will be able to find your solace here. Kayaking fishing hiking or some of the few activities loved by many. It’s about a five minute hike over to the renowned Honey Run waterfall.
  • Really nice Tipi, by the the river! Enjoy!

    Lisa2020-02-21T00:00:00Z
  • Awesome stay! We went in January and thought for sure we would regret it.. ended up being a great night! The tipi stayed warm, nice rope lighting and decorative touches.. loved it!

    Christa2020-01-04T00:00:00Z
  • This place is awesome. The location is amazing, only steps from the Kokosing River. There are some trails near there to go for a hike and check out the waterfall and other beautiful sights. We were warm enough inside the Tipi with the heaters running and the heated blankets. Nice firepit outside and a small grill make it easy to whip up some firecooked food. Greatest place for a short getaway. Thanks again!

    Nick2019-12-28T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful place that allows you to step away from convention. Simple, yet breathtaking. There is a mini fridge, a/c unit, and space heater. A couch, bed, and two sleeping mats that appeared thick and above average. The tipi overlooks to kokosing river from high above on a cliff.

    Grace2019-11-06T00:00:00Z
  • Matt’s teepee was so cozy on a chilly fall night! He had the space heater and lights turned on for our arrival, and he provided extra sleeping pads. It was roomy enough for 5 adults and located in a beautiful spot right on the river. I will definitely return with friends and family another time!

    Katie2019-11-03T00:00:00Z
  • Wonderful spot! Bring boats or kayaks or canoes and enjoy the water or go on a hike! Would suggest this for anyone! Things to know: *the queen mattress is heated and there is heating blanket. I did not see a heater. *there are two cushy floor mats in there in addition to the couch and queen mattress. *there is rope lighting on the inside. *there is a picnic table next to a beautiful fire pit and mini grill

    Jessica2019-10-26T00:00:00Z
  • Loved it!!! Unique, very clean, loved the space heater and the heated blanket! We had a cold snap this weekend and slept super well even though we woke up to 32* outside! Loved the rock formations, the river, and the waterfall!

    Emily2019-10-20T00:00:00Z

    We have an 1840's Federal style brick house in rural Knox County, Ohio. We do not have WiFi but you will find peace and quiet, fresh air and a variety of trees and birds. Views from the house include fields, our barn and occasional deer. We are just seven miles from Kenyon College, Mount Vernon and the bike trail. The largest Amish settlement in the USA is only 40 minutes away. If you like to kayak, canoe or fish, you can access the Kokosing, a scenic river, in less than 5 minutes.
    There are more than a hundred different trees and shrubs near the house. Most are labled.
  • I loved Jerry's farm house. It's super spacious, clean, comfortable, and very private. If you're looking for a great spot in the beautiful Ohio countryside close to Kenyon, look no further!

    Kevin2020-02-25T00:00:00Z

    Paul2019-11-22T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful house on beautiful grounds that are fun to explore. There is a wonderful mix of experiencing a home from a different time with modern amenities. The board games and puzzles are a great touch. We hope to stay again. Great communication from friendly host, Jerry. We will definitely stay again when we are in the area.

    Amanda2019-11-20T00:00:00Z
  • What a perfect place to stay. We were out visiting our daughter at Kenyon and the location was minutes from the campus. Very cozy home and beautiful views out of every window. We can't wait to stay there again.

    Adam2019-11-10T00:00:00Z
  • Hospitality and accommodations are top notch! Antiques and honey touches at every turn. Could not have had a better stay!

    Yvonne2019-09-22T00:00:00Z
  • This home is a true treasure! It includes many beautiful antiques, thoughtful touches, and wonderfully landscapes grounds and trails. Sweet surprises at every turn! Can’t wait to return! And, by the way, was thankful for the lack of WiFi... unplugging is good for us every once in a while!

    Yvonne2019-09-15T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing place with a terrific—though remote—location. Close to the Kenyon campus and was perfect for our needs.

    Welcome to "The Roost", a renovated turkey brooder barn. This is a large, private retreat for 2-14 guests. It provides a unique experience due to the rustic backdrop and modern amenities. Wonderful country views of rolling pasture with grazing cattle, soft sounds of nature, creeks and ponds to explore and cast a line into, hiking trails through open woods and fire circles to gather around. It's a place of simple beauty and causes you to pause and ponder the goodness of creation!
    Indoor wood burning stove, private outdoor deck and fire pit. Great views of the rolling countryside, farm animals, and wildlife.
    The neighborhood offers a wonderful county park with many hiking trails and a waterfall, as well as "The Blonde Robin" a quaint coffee shop/boutique close by. A great breakfast treat spot is just over the hill.......Amish Bakery! Pizza places will deliver to "The Roost".
  • We booked The Roost and The Off Season Hunting Lodge for a basketball tournament. It was extremely accommodating for our group of 20! We woke up to 2 dozen farm fresh eggs and if we ever needed anything, Amy was happy to get it. She wrote everyone’s names on the chalkboard in The Roost and wished us luck in our tournament. We were able have great fellowship with one another. It was an awesome weekend!

    Krista2020-03-07T00:00:00Z
  • We loved staying at The Roost! It’s absolutely adorable, way more spacious than we expected and a cozy atmosphere. Amy provided us outstanding hospitality, great communication and quick responses to any questions or needs. From the shampoo and shower gels to the waters, fresh eggs, bread and pastry she had waiting for us to the welcoming vibe, Amy gave our group a outstanding stay. We loved the dogs and the kids loved feeding the chickens. We will definitely return! A great time and fun memories.

    Amy2020-02-16T00:00:00Z
  • The Roose was exceptional! Everything was clean and very nicely decorated with the farmhouse theme. The dogs and chickens were the biggest hit for the weekend, and there was plenty of space for our group. It’s a relaxing retreat with a few things to do in the area. The views were amazing and plenty of property, fishing and animals to keep the kids busy. It was lovely to do “nothing” for a weekend.

    Dana2019-09-23T00:00:00Z
  • Amy's place was perfect for us. We had 7 adults and 5 children and her place accommodated all of us perfectly. The kids loved the animals and chasing chickens. The pond was great for fishing too!

    Adam2019-09-15T00:00:00Z
  • Amy was absolutely amazing in every way, she was welcoming and she made our stay at the roost wonderful ! We were married on the property and I couldn’t have asked so better accommodations, everything was beautiful! There is a lot of space and beautiful scenery. Truly a great place for family! Thank you soooo much Amy❤️ Sincerely, Rashad & Melinda Law

    Melinda2019-09-08T00:00:00Z
  • The place was amazing. So much room for all the guys, super clean, great communication, animals around us were cool too. Cant wait to book it for a full weekend

    Adam2019-08-31T00:00:00Z
  • Hands down thee nicest, most relaxing weekend get away I’ve ever had. This is our second year making a girls trip to The Roost, and we can’t imagine the end of our summers without it anymore. You’d be crazy not to book with Amy!! Her hospitality is amazing, and it just really feels like home.

    Pamela2019-08-18T00:00:00Z
  • This was one of my best air BNB experience is by far. If you're a group of guys, or a group of girls, or a small business, this place even works for families with children. It's been a few weeks and my children are still talking about it and begging us to go back again. It Accommodated all 15 of us and still felt comfortable. Amy and her husband are a wonderful couple, They really went above and beyond to help us feel comfortable. The animals at the property there where the best experience by far. I will repeat in the future

    We recently renovated our one-story home and are excited to welcome visitors to our cozy space. The house is mere blocks from Kenyon’s campus and sits on the same street as the Kenyon Athletic Center. We’ve arranged the house to make it easy for visiting with friends and family. The open kitchen and living room offer a warm shared space, and the two back bedrooms provide plenty of privacy. The large backyard deck is perfect for relaxing outdoors.
    This house is our quiet getaway spot, and we hope visitors will feel the same way. We envision the space as a vacation home, a remote place to work, or a comfortable place to stay while visiting family or attending programs at Kenyon College. Amenities include new appliances (including washer/dryer), plus a renovated bathroom, a single-car garage, high-speed internet, and cable TV.
    Our house offers the best of both worlds: a peaceful residential block within walking distance to Kenyon’s campus, Middle Path, the football stadium, and the Kenyon Athletic Center.
  • This home is lovely, exactly as described (perhaps even better than described), and extremely well-stocked. The location is ideal for a visit to Kenyon or the quaint town of Gambier. The hosts consistently provided helpful, timely communication. Truly, one of the best Airbnb experiences I have had.

    June2019-11-24T00:00:00Z

I highly recommend Maria and Matt's place and thank them for sharing their home with us.

  • Super house in great location in Gambier. This ranch house has been smartly renovated in a modern and comfortable style. It is very bright and features a private back deck and garage. It was also very clean. I was in town to bike the Kokosing Trail with my nephew. We caught the trail a couple blocks away. Kenyon College and the lovely village are less than a 5 minute walk away. Gambier is a special place for me as my father grew up there. As a kid we would always visit with my grandparents and many aunts and uncles who had farms there. This was a special nostalgic couple of days spent with a great nephew. We both said how wonderful the house was and he plans on coming back with his wife to the house as well. Thanks Matt for a great retreat.

    Marilyn2019-09-26T00:00:00Z
  • Beautifully updated & comfortable property in ideal location for very walkable visit to Kenyon. Well appointed kitchen and entertaining space. Matt & Maria are perfect hosts - very responsive to inquiries and flexible ( when possible) about check in/ check out times. Have recommended the property to other friends who frequently visit Kenyon.

    Thank you for viewing our comfortable home in Gambier Ohio! Our house is on a quiet street near the Kenyon Athletic Center, Pierce Hall and the Kokosing Gap Trail. We hope to provide you a comfortable and enjoyable stay. Please do not hesitate to message with questions. We have everything you should need at this rental: linens, towels, a well-stocked kitchen, an iron, and more! We are flexible about checking in and out.
    This home is perfect for anyone who desires to stay in the heart of beautiful Kenyon College campus in Gambier. It is also within walking distance to the Kokosing Gap Trail and Kokosing River.
    This question asks me to write what I love about my neighborhood, and the answer is: EVERYTHING! Gambier is the quintessential small college town. We are steps away from one of the most beautiful colleges in the world. While not officially "on campus," we are as close as it gets. We live adjacent to student housing Morgan Apartments. Gambier is extremely pedestrian-friendly. There are usually college events happening such as lectures, live music, or art exhibitions. During the summer, the residents of Gambier make up for the absence of the students at the Kenyon Inn and Village Inn. The Village Market is an interesting mix of typical pantry staples, unique beer and wine selections, and local food offerings. This area is perfect for those looking for a weekend outdoors. We are within walking distance of the Kokosing Gap Trial, the Kokosing River, and the Brown Family Environmental Center hiking trails. Knox County has quality parks, public golf courses, and nature preserves.
  • Great location if you are visiting campus. Very spacious, cozy and well appointed. Has the basics and extra touches such as to- go coffee cups! Plenty of space and nice deck. Highly recommended!

    Tara2019-11-24T00:00:00Z
  • The house is perfectly clean, stylish, and warm. A wonderful location right on campus and just an overall great place to stay when visiting Kenyon!

    Jesse2019-11-03T00:00:00Z
  • If I could give more than 5 stars for the location, I would! The house is comfortable and well-equipped and a very short walk to Kenyon's athletic facilities and fields and its dining hall.

    Jennifer2019-10-21T00:00:00Z
  • This house was absolutely perfect for a group of alums coming back to celebrate an on-campus wedding! The space is exactly as it appears in the pictures, and everything was spotless when we arrived. The check in/out instructions are very helpful and clear, and there are many thoughtful touches that make the space extra comfortable. We would most definitely stay here again!

    Elizabeth2019-10-13T00:00:00Z
  • All around great place. I was on my own, but this would also be a great place for a family to stay or for families to share while visiting Kenyon. Lots of beds and a fully outfitted kitchen. I didn’t need a car because the house is essentially on campus close to everything. Lovely deck. Plenty of towels and my bed was comfy. Pristinely clean.

    Andrea2019-10-07T00:00:00Z
  • Wonderful space - everything you need for an overnight trip or two. Location to Kenyon campus cannot be beat!

    Lakshmi2019-09-07T00:00:00Z
  • We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this clean, comfortable and cozy home. We greatly appreciated all of the amenities, closeness to the Kenyon Athletic Center, Kenyon’s campus, Village Market and the back deck. It truly felt like a home away from home.

    Dave & Amy2019-07-29T00:00:00Z

  • They were such lovely hosts!

    Mary P2020-01-20T00:00:00Z
  • We enjoyed another wonderful stay at the Russo House! We can't wait to see Matt and his wonderful family again next year!

    Jon2019-12-21T00:00:00Z
  • Matt's home is wonderful. I was only in town for a short night but I felt so welcome. I enjoyed the quiet, comfortable room and a lovely chat and a cup of tea before bed. I would highly recommend Matt's home if you are visiting Kenyon College or other locations nearby.

    Lauren2019-11-02T00:00:00Z
  • Loved staying here. I was attending Kenyon events so left the car at the farm and rode my bike on the Kokosing Gap trail (minutes from the house) back and forth to campus. Matt lent me his headlamp but i didn't think I'd need it with the big harvest moon. I needed it. so lovely. very good baked oats for breakfast and warm homemade bread as an evening snack.

    Andrea2019-09-15T00:00:00Z
  • He’s great! Very friendly guy who knows front and back what it means to be hospitable.

    Shelby2019-08-31T00:00:00Z
  • We enjoyed another wonderful stay at Matt and Renne's beautiful country house! Their warmth and hospitality was very much appreciated after our long drive from NJ.! The breakfast provided was so scrumptious and a perfect way to start our day. We also enjoyed our conversations with their children who are truly some of the most well-behaved and insightful children that I've ever met. Their great character is a true reflection of both Matt and Renne's great parenting skills! We can't wait to return again!

    Jon2019-08-27T00:00:00Z
  • We loved the stay! The breakfast was very nice, and they treated us like family.

    Prakash2019-08-25T00:00:00Z
  • Nice experience in Matt house! I am an international student from China. During international student's pre-orientation, my father stays in Matt's house. Matt is very warm-hearted. I really appreciate that Matt gave my father a ride to Kenyon college. The location is about 5 minutes' drive from Kenyon College. So if you are an international student or you want to stay during vacation, I strongly recommend this one!

  • Barbara was very accommodating and even let me borrow a few bowls for my dogs. I definitely recommend staying here!

    Shane2020-02-27T00:00:00Z
  • I flew in from the West Coast and arrived to Gambier around 2:00 am. I didn't expect for Barbara to stay up and wait for me. The drive from CMH to Gambier at night (alone!) was pretty daunting but Barbara told me to call her if I needed to. She went on to say that, "Sometimes hearing a friendly voice on the other line can calm your fears." She knew exactly what I was feeling and was a very thoughtful gesture to extend to me. She and Bill made my stay in Gambier wonderful. I got to see some snow fall, a rare sight in Southern California. I loved their place - very spacious and welcoming. We will definitely be back in May. Thank you, Bill and Barbara, for a wonderful stay in the countryside. Best, ~ Rowenna

    Rowenna2020-02-02T00:00:00Z
  • Excellent place - the view out the back is very nice. Everything was spotless and Barbara was a really good host. Hope to visit again someday - would highly recommend!

    Brian2019-12-26T00:00:00Z
  • As always I look forward to staying at No Ordinary Manor! It is a gem of a place with the kindest hosts in Barbara and Bill! So cozy, comfortable and immaculate - with all the amenities you need for a perfect stay!! Can’t wait to return!!

    Linda2019-12-06T00:00:00Z
  • Barbara's apartment is very comfortable, cozy and well equipped for a couple. She has it decorated with many country touches and it feels wonderfully homey. You cannot go wrong if you are looking for somewhere quiet in the rural Ohio countryside close to Amish country.

    Jon2019-11-29T00:00:00Z
  • I do not usually trust reviews that give ***** but you can trust this one. My expectation was this would be a small place to crash for a few days while we were in Gambier. Instead we found it to be a roomy, immaculate place with everything you could need. We got in late and Barbara met us with a smile and showed us around. She was available if we needed anything, but we did not as she already thought of everything. We will definitely be back!!

    Marcy2019-11-13T00:00:00Z
  • More than we expected, spacious, well-kept place with everything we need. Close to Kenyon College and Mt. Vernon.

    Joy2019-11-03T00:00:00Z
  • I don’t think you could have a better stay anywhere else! Barbara is an amazing host that takes pride in offering a clean, comfortable and relaxing home away from home. I would recommend her to everyone!

    Sandra2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • This is a basement with owners living upstairs but it’s wonderful. You get the whole basement to yourselves and it’s nice a cozy with a gas fireplace that turns in with a switch. Very pleasant hosts. Small refrigerators and no kitchen but again, it’s a great place with wonderful touches.

    Ted2020-02-17T00:00:00Z

    A comfortable home at the edge of the Kenyon College campus. Private home with guest bedroom that can accommodate 1 or 2 guests, or more. Full kitchen, nice yard, easy parking, easy walk to campus and village. Great for visiting parents, prospectives
    Proximity to Kenyon College campus in a mid-century home with character.
  • The space is very comfortable and a short walk to the Kenyon campus. Jerry is a wonderful host, generous and charming. I hope to be back soon!

    Stephen2020-01-26T00:00:00Z
  • We arrived late and left early, so we actually didn't meet the host, but he made our visit smooth. We have no complaints, all was good.

    Chris2019-12-14T00:00:00Z
  • Close to Kenyon and the space was just as expected.

    Kevin2019-11-10T00:00:00Z

    Rachel2019-10-13T00:00:00Z
  • Jerry is an amazing host. He is friendly, welcoming and readily available. His home is cozy and comfortable, perfectly located at the edge of Kenyon College's campus. We already have another stay booked !

    Bridget2019-09-28T00:00:00Z
  • Jerry’s house was clean and pleasant, convenient to Kenyon College campus, restful and quiet. We had a great stay, Jerry was super generous and communicative.

    Mark2019-09-23T00:00:00Z
  • I and my daughter have stayed in Jerry's house for a few days before check-in Kenyon College. The location is very convenient for the parent to visit Kenyon College. I would like to thank Jerry and his friends for warmly and usefulness hospitality. I would select Jerry's house if I have a chance to come back Gambier.

    Pham2019-08-18T00:00:00Z
  • My partner and I arrived at Jerry's house in the evening after a long drive from Minneapolis and in need of peace and quiet. We loved the place. Interesting, comfortable, quiet. It was perfect.

    Our home is close to Kenyon College, Mount Vernon Nazarene College, Kokosing Gap Walking and Bicycling Trail. We are only an hour and fifteen minutes from the Ohio State campus. You’ll love my place because of the wooded setting, quiet and peaceful environment, warm open floor plan. Our home is good for couples, solo adventurers, business travelers, and families (with kids).
    The very spacious bedroom with a queen bed, also has a lazy-boy chair and a rocking chair as well as a desk. Our home is nestled on three acres of woods with a walking path. You will have a private bathroom with a shower.
    We are in the country, but the nearest Kroger is 10 minutes away, gas station and mart is 5 minute. Restaurants are located in Gambier and Mount Vernon . There is little light pollution, so stars are brilliant, and deer are plentiful.
  • Bege and Denny were very hospitable hosts. My stay with them was fantastic and I enjoyed their company while there. The house was very clean and nicely set up as well.

    Damon2020-01-13T00:00:00Z
  • My stay here was very pleasant. The house was incredibly clean, the room was comfortable and homey. Bege is a wonderful host and I would highly recommend staying here!!

    Amanda2019-11-16T00:00:00Z
  • We have been staying at Airbnb's for several years but always chose "entire place". We booked Bege's and Denny's place on pretty short notice and I was a little apprehensive of staying in someone's home with them. Bege quickly put me at ease and made us feel comfortable and welcome. Communication and check-in were easy with quick response times and the room actually looks nicer than the picture and is very spacious. Everything was very clean and the bathroom offered some amenities. Coffee in the room and we were treated to home-baked raisin bread in the morning. Lego, the dog, is very friendly. Diva, the cat keeps her distance. I have a pretty severe cat allergy but oddly (and thankfully) had no reaction to the cat at all. We enjoyed our space and its surroundings but what really makes this place special is the hosts - Bege and Denny are open and welcoming people who are interested in the guests they host. We thank them for a nice stay and a wonderful morning and hope we didn't talk your ears completely off :)

    Heike2019-11-02T00:00:00Z
  • What a fabulous place to stay! The house is tucked away in a lovely little forest of trees in an area of gently rolling hills. The room was big, clean and quiet. I had my own bathroom which was spotless. Bege and Denny were friendly and helpful. I’d definitely stay here again.

    Joseph2019-07-26T00:00:00Z
  • Bege is an outstanding host with a lovely home. It was so beautiful tucked up in the woods that I didn’t want to leave. The room is large and comfortable. The bathroom was perfect, also.

    Janet2019-06-14T00:00:00Z
  • Clean, comfortable, cozy place with hot coffee and homemade bread each morning! My 2nd stay! Close proximity to Kenyon College! Highly recommend!

    Diane2019-05-19T00:00:00Z
  • WARNING: you will be smitten with a great reluctance to leave this dreamy house and these great folks. You will want to be adopted (and I’m 70 yrs old). But you’ll be in line behind all the birds and woodland creatures and flowers Bege is Steward to. Their home deserves superlatives I haven’t learned or perhaps have not been created yet. The accommodations are palatial. Let’s put it this way the only amenities not available are indoor pool and masseuse.

    Billy The Kid2019-05-04T00:00:00Z

    quiet neighborhood, close to restaurants & shops
  • Guys. This place is JAW DROPPING. Theres so.much detail i cant even begin to explain. The bathroom and bath tub is PHENOMENAL. She left snacks and champagne and just so much detail. I loved the speakers in the rooms, the art room was soo cute...and just everything I cannot rave enough.

    Morgan2020-03-02T00:00:00Z
  • We came here for a weekend away. We had a great time! We would recommend this stay to anyone. The house is very comfortable and well decorated. Pretty much had anything you would need (plenty of towels, kitchenware, extra toiletries, and snacks). The outdoor area looked great and we wished it was warmer so we could have enjoyed it. The bedrooms and bathroom both exceeded expectations. Very comfortable. The Airbnb is also very close to Kenyon College and Mont Vernon Nazarene which are both nice campuses to walk around and visit or if you are here to visit one of those colleges this Airbnb would be a great place to stay at. Glad we came here for the weekend.

    Jude2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • The Little Pink Barn is the perfect weekend getaway! It had everything you need plus more and Ginny is available to help with any needs! The house is so cute and stylish and I definitely want to make another trip there at some point!

    This is a late 1800s farm house on my working family farm. It has been fully remodeled and infrastructure updated but retains the simple architecture of the period farm house. Located one mile East of Gambier (Kenyon College), it's site overlooks the Kokosing River and is a short walk to the Kokosing Gap Bike Trail. Includes a fully furnished kitchen, three bedrooms and two baths. The wrap around porch overlooks the river and surrounding pasture. Enjoy the secluded, quiet, pastoral setting.
    Farm livestock include Katahdin sheep and Nifty the guard Llama. During summer months, bring your canoe or kayaks and enjoy exploring the Kokosing River from this home base, or wade the river and hook yourself a few small mouth bass. If you bring your bikes, there are miles of paved, scenic trails (former railroad tracks) to explore to the east or west of Gambier.
    The Gambier area is a small college town in a predominantly agricultural environment.
  • Great place, a beautiful farm house, exactly as described. Norman and Patricia are super friendly and attentive hosts. The house is fully equipped and everything is in pristine condition. We had a lovely stay! We will be back. Thank you!

    Pedro Alvaro2020-02-18T00:00:00Z
  • Bent Canoe Farm never disappoints, and our stay this January was no exception. Our daughter was recovering from surgery and we needed a place convenient to the Kenyon Campus to ease her back into the semester and Norman and Patricia's place was perfect. As always, the house was lovely, warm and welcoming and the hosts were incredibly generous and attentive throughout our lengthy stay. This is truly the best place to stay in Gambier and we appreciate every opportunity we have to do so!

    Sarah2020-01-22T00:00:00Z
  • Bent Canoe remains a favorite place to stay when visiting our daughter at Kenyon College. This fall was no exception, and we thoroughly enjoyed the beautiful foliage, tranquility of the river and hospitality of Norman and Pat. The farmhouse continues to provide a space to relax, reflect and enjoy everything Gambier has to offer.

    Sarah2019-11-03T00:00:00Z
  • This home and location is so beautiful, I hesitate to write a review for fear it will become unavailable the next time I want to stay. It is a fabulously updated farm house situated on a piece of land fit for a movie scene. Atop a hill, surrounded by trees, next to a river, with a pasture of sheep guarded by a "Mama Llama". The house is complete with every possible need anticipated from the totally equipped kitchen, comfortable bedding, luxury baths, large dining table for conversation, gas fireplace in Living Room, 2 porches to enjoy morning coffee, a firepit supplied with wood and a lovely path to walk near the Kokosing River. The home has a full bathroom and King bedroom down as well as 2 bedrooms up. One with Queen bed and 1 with Twin beds with full bath in between. There is a smart TV for evening viewing and the quaint college town of Gambier is only 1 mile away. Norman was quick with communication and he and wife Pat were truly warm and hospitable.

    Michelle2019-10-14T00:00:00Z
  • Just a beautiful setting, very clean and wonderful hosts!

    Christine2019-08-25T00:00:00Z

    Beverly2019-07-29T00:00:00Z
  • Great location! Beautiful family home with all the amenities. Very spacious and beautiful decorated.

    Aprell2019-07-21T00:00:00Z
  • This farmhouse has been so beautifully remodeled that it feels like a warm and comfortable home as well as a new house. The big wraparound porch has a screened in portion for evenings sitting on the glider, watching the sheep graze in the pasture. It is almost too picturesque. The property is very well kept with lots of flower out back and the river as your next store neighbor. All the appliances are new and up to date. The owners have also filled the kitchen with every small appliance you might want to use (crockpot, blender, ect.) The gas grill even had an extra full tank of propane next to it so you don't run out mid cook. If I needed anything I found it clean and ready to use in a drawer or cabinet. The bedrooms had clean crisp white bedding. The bathrooms were spotless and had stacks of white towels that looked as though they had never been used. The bathrooms reminded me of a high end hotel with small toilettes and lots of extras. The upstairs bathroom has a huge walk in tile shower and both bathrooms have exhaust fans to clear the steam. The tile floors in the bathrooms and hardwood floors in the rest of the home make the house easy to keep clean. This home completely exceeded my expectations. Wish we could have stayed longer. Thanks Norman!

    Studio apartment located about an hour northeast of Columbus. Includes full kitchen, washer and dryer and internet. In town, so close to downtown Mt. Vernon and shopping. Close to bike trail and park, and about 10 minutes to Kenyon or the Nazarene University.
    The garage is separate from my house and you get in with a keypad. I put the stairs to the apartment on the inside for safety and security, so you will walk past my tools and workbench. The neighborhood is pretty quiet and since I insulated the apartment well and put in laminated glass windows, you should have a private and quiet stay. I attempted to sound isolate the garage doors, but you may hear the door go up when I leave( I couldn't find any fancy sound mounts like we had on the submarine) There are snacks and drinks available and multiple restaurants are near by. The kitchen should have about everything you need. There is a 43" smart TV so you can log on with whatever service you want( I provide Netflix and Pandora). there is a massage recliner , loveseat, and a yoga mat and blocks under the tv. The queen bed is a 10" memory foam mattress with a 2" memory foam topper. There is a white noise machine on the night stand if it gets too quiet. Thanks for looking and booking my place.
    The neighborhood is pretty quite. You will hear some street noise, and during the day hear the kids at recess from the elementary school across the street. The garage is very well insulated and has laminated glass windows, so overall it is quiet.
  • We had a great stay at the Garage Getaway. Don’t let the “garage” part fool you, this is a comfortable and well-appointed place with lots of extra touches.

    Mark2020-03-07T00:00:00Z
  • The Garage Getaway is very comfortable and clean! Chad also had plenty of snacks and cold drinks available. The location is convenient to shopping, restaurants and both Colleges/University. I hope to stay here again when visiting Mt.Vernon. Highly recommend!!

    Paula2020-02-02T00:00:00Z
  • All the comforts of home with some thoughtful touches, Chad's place was perfect for our 2 night visit to the Mt Vernon/Gambier area. This was our second time staying here, and we wouldn't hesitate to stay again in the future. Thanks Chad!

    Marna2020-01-26T00:00:00Z

On 5 acres over-looking the Kokosing River our home offers gorgeous views of sunrise, sunset and Kenyon’s twinkling night lights. ~1 mile from Kenyon’s campus, off of 229, our home is a charming place for parents visiting their students, families celebrating a reunion or friends looking for a retreat. Originally built in 1852 (with a gorgeous apt added in '94), this home provides a cozy place to entertain and fall in love with the charms of rural Ohio.
  • Our second stay here in Gambier with Ryan and Sarah. We love the house, love the location. Ryan and Sarah are great hosts and were very attentive to our needs. Would definitely come again.

    Shane2019-12-03T00:00:00Z
  • Nice farm house right next to Kenyan’s campus. Great farm house feel. Perfect for a large group.

    Andrew2019-11-24T00:00:00Z
  • Great house, super close to the college.

    John2019-11-17T00:00:00Z
  • Comfortable old farm house in the country. Beautiful area.

    Shane2019-11-05T00:00:00Z
  • We stayed at Ryan and Sarah's place for Kenyon College Parents Weekend. The location is ideal- less than 2 miles to Kenyon, an easy 5 minute drive. The home was spacious and comfortable but also felt warm and cozy. We enjoyed cooking a dinner for 10 as the kitchen was well appointed. The refrigerator was stocked for us with the basics and there was plenty of coffee and tea to enjoy all weekend. The owners were very helpful and welcoming to us. You will find comfort and serenity staying at this home!

    Denise2019-10-20T00:00:00Z
  • Kenyon parents and alums will love the rich history and connection of this unique house to the college and anyone else will appreciate the ample space, charm and beautiful hilltop setting. Sarah communicates clearly and quickly, welcoming you into the space with a bottle of wine. Sarah also stocked the refrigerator with breakfast essentials, making our first morning at the house relaxing and enjoyable. If you need to prepare food, as we did for a post game tailgate, the kitchen is exceptional-- well stocked with the basics and beyond. Poke around and you will find a professional stand mixer, a pasta maker, sharp knives galore, and some new appliances mixed in with a beast of an old Viking range. Heavy well used pots and pans lend a definite Julia Child air to the space, and I wish I'd had more time to spend in it. Kokosing Chateau is a welcome addition to an area that is often difficult to find quality accommodations and we look forward to many return visits.

    Sarah2019-10-13T00:00:00Z
  • I highly recommend staying at this Gambier/ Kenyon College Airbnb home!! It's a large charming old farm house with a lovely addition. The sunsets are breathtaking since it sits up on a hill and that overlooks acres of rolling land that makes this area so special. The entrance to Kenyon campus is only 3 minutes by car.Bagels, fruit and an assortment of coffee was available for breakfast. I suggest the Village Inn in town for good lunches and dinner in a relaxed atmosphere. Book now! Don't hesitate 😊 You get a bottle of wine as a gift!

    Vee2019-10-10T00:00:00Z
  • This rustic but modernized 1800s farmhouse was the absolute perfect site for our 10-person family reunion over a weekend in September. Because all of the basics of hospitality were flawlessly seen to (bedding, linens, temp control, friendly signage to find things, wifi, cleanliness, etc.), I would just highlight the bonuses that we appreciated in the house: --Beauty of the natural setting (yard, surrounding countryside, view) and the fact that the house had many ways to access it totally or partially (sit outside, sit in a screened in porch, many different versions) --Stuff for kids to do and grownups-playing-along-with-kids to do, like: trampoline, tree swings, awesome hide-and-seek options, huge yards for frisbee, and nature exploring --A loaded kitchen!! that accommodated the cooking needs of a bunch of fairly snobby chefs and also easily allowed us to cook for a large group. E.g., down to things like sharp knives, cast iron cookery, all cooking basics we didn't bring (olive oil, salt, dressings, etc.) and many gas-powered range surfaces. --The house blends the old and the new in a way that allows you to appreciate the history of the house without feeling like you're roughing it at all. --Easy access to short, meaningful excursions: Kokosing Gap Trail, creeking in the Kokosing River, Kenyon Student Farm, and of course Kenyon College and Gambier downtown. Our hosts were really generous with their time ahead of and during our stay in helping us pick the right local activities to suit our interests.

    Cozy two-bedroom home located within the Gambier village limits a short walk from middle-path.
    I purchased the home in December 2017 and have spent quite a bit of time on renovations. Due to the weather the exterior has yet to be repainted.
  • Very nice accommodation next to Kenyon college. small and cozy:) very beautiful

    Emma2019-09-02T00:00:00Z
  • Max was very prompt on communications and professional. Nice clean house and perfect for a Kenyon parent when visiting. Thanks!

    Scott2019-04-06T00:00:00Z
  • Max is a great host with a beautiful house. Newly renovated, well decorated, and super intimate space. Would heavily recommend.

    Austin2018-12-02T00:00:00Z
  • Dear Traveler— Max is a very responsive host. Checking in was a breeze. During our stay, I felt that if I had any problems or questions he would be able to solve them. All the appliances, TV, heat, lighting, etc. worked perfectly. Everything was in good repair. The neighborhood is quiet and safe. There is parking on site. This is the perfect house to rent for a family visit to Kenyon College. At times, it can be next to impossible to find accommodations in Gambier.. (Tip: There is not handicapped access to the beds on the second floor, but Max’s giant couch in the living room could accommodate an NBA player.) We were very comfortable in the two queen-sized beds. My teenager has reported that the TV has a good selection of channels and the WIFI is extremely fast, no matter where in the house you use it. Max has worked hard to modernize the 100 year old farmhouse that you will be renting. Everything is brand new. Even the kitchen is big enough for two cooks. (Another Tip: for the best selection, purchase your groceries in Mt. Vernon - don’t expect there to be restaurants on campus!) Tanya

    Tanya2018-11-11T00:00:00Z
  • We enjoyed our stay in this charming little house that is getting a serious facelift. It will be fabulous when complete but had plenty going for it even now: comfy beds, new kitchen, great loungey sofa, and an awesome dart board dominating one wall. The location is perfect for anything Kenyon related.

    Our home in Gambier is near Kenyon College and Mount Vernon Nazarene University in beautiful Knox County Ohio. My husband and I live in a wooded country setting minutes away from the Brown Family Environmental Center, the Kokosing Gap Trail and several Kokosing River access sites. Our semi-private suite is newly renovated specifically for our Airbnb guests. It has a bedroom with a queen bed, sitting room with sofa bed, and bathroom. Smart tv, wi-fi, coffee maker and access to deck.
    Your suite is semi-private in a separate area of our home. You have your own private room, bathroom, and sitting room with private access to a large deck in a private setting.
    In nice weather we have an outdoor firepit available for you to use as well as a hiking trail through our upper woods. There is a large deck on the back of our home that overlooks a ravine and many acres of woods.
  • The place is even more beautiful in person than pictures! Very close to Kenyon College. Warm and thoughtful accomdation. Highly recommend Nancy's place!

    Joy2020-02-15T00:00:00Z
  • Nancy and David's home is very conveniently located to Kenyon College. It offered a beautiful, clean, and quiet space for a restful night's sleep. The coffee and snacks for the morning were greatly appreciated. Will definitely try to stay again when the need arises. Thank you for your hospitality!

    Julia2020-01-27T00:00:00Z
  • The perfect place to stay when visiting Kenyon College. Hotel options in the area are limited, and if you’re looking for a clean, quiet place to spend the night this is it. Dave and Nancy tend to be at the other end of the house; there is a bedroom, private bathroom and large sitting room (with breakfast amenities). Very simple and has everything you need. While there is no separate entrance, I found Dave and Nancy to be friendly but absolutely respectful of their guests’ privacy. I’ve stayed here twice now when helping my daughter with move-in or move-out, and it was more convenient and congenial than any of the hotel options I’ve tried.

    Stuart2020-01-12T00:00:00Z
  • Nancy and Dave's place is cozy, warm, and well-situated. We enjoyed our time at the Airbnb. It's the perfect place to stay if you are visiting Kenyon College.

    Alexandra2019-12-19T00:00:00Z
  • This is our fourth time staying at Nancy's. She is very hospitable. Her place is comfortable. There are caring amenities like a Keurig, tea, coffee, granola bars and hot cereal. The location is just minutes from Kenyon College.

    Karen2019-12-01T00:00:00Z
  • Delightful hosts in a location that was perfect for us! So close to Kenyon! Thank you Nancy and Dave for once again being phenomenal hosts!

    Maria2019-11-24T00:00:00Z
  • Nancy's place is an incredibly wonderful place to stay. Nancy and her husband are so very kind and gracious, making sure your stay is comfortable and with all amenities. I loved the bed (SO COMFORTABLE), the nice living room area, the sparkling clean bathroom, the snacks, drinks, temperature, proximity to Kenyon College, and the cleanliness of everything! WHAT A FANTASTIC PLACE TO STAY! You will be delighted with this air-bnb!!!

    Maria2019-11-03T00:00:00Z
  • If your daughter/son is going to Kenyon College, you can't do better than staying here. It's cozy, comfy and the hosts couldn't be nicer - after all this is rural Ohio! The only thing I ask is that everyone who stays there put the address into Waze...not enough people have and it has NO idea where this place is. Tip: Click on the link in the Airbnb to maps or you'll be lost. Seriously, it doesn't get better than this for a college visit!

    Adjacent to Kenyon College, steps from Village of Gambier. 19th Century charm, 21st century amenities. Recently renovated – central air, great room, fully equipped gourmet kitchen - high-end appliances, custom cabinetry. Lovely private patio surrounded by magnificent wooded lot. 3 Kings, ability to convert 2 into 4 twins. Fabulous master bath - huge shower, separate bath, vanities and toilet. Great for visiting parents and professors, college reunions, graduations, or a peaceful get away.
  • This house is great! Pictures do not do it justice, it was much larger than I thought it would be. Kitchen is very well stocked with tons of pans, pantry items and spices. The bed we stayed in (master bedroom) was super comfortable, pillows and linens were top notch. Definitely will rent this again when visiting Kenyon.

    Rocky2020-02-16T00:00:00Z
  • Don, Susan and their property manager are excellent to work with. Great space, very comfy beds, fully stocked kitchen for cooks to make nice family meal while visiting their Kenyon student.

    Colleen2019-11-17T00:00:00Z
  • A lovely home with a perfect location if you're visiting Kenyon College! From a well appointed kitchen and great spaces to relax in, both inside and out, to a spacious master bathroom, my husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our weekend stay.

    Sarah2019-11-10T00:00:00Z

    Amy2019-10-27T00:00:00Z

    Eileen2019-10-20T00:00:00Z

    Beth2019-12-01T00:00:00Z
  • LuAnn's has a wonderful space with a great common space for multiple guests. It was clean and inviting, and easy to access and check out! It was also close to downtown and trails/parks in the area.

    Tyler2019-11-16T00:00:00Z
  • Great location. Convenient to Kenyon. Spacious.

    Tony2019-10-27T00:00:00Z
  • LuAnn has thought of everything. The basement apartment is very nicely appointed and is a great alternative to staying in a hotel when visiting Gambier/Mt Vernon.

    Lisa2019-10-20T00:00:00Z
  • When you stay here, you have a private entrance to the finished basement, which is all yours to use including a rev room, laundry/kitchenette, bathroom, and bedroom. The bed has a wonderful memory foam which I appreciate so much!! The bathroom is spotless. LuAnn provides many thoughtful touches and quick responses. And I love that it’s literally two minutes from MVNU!

    Lisa2019-10-06T00:00:00Z
  • LuAnn was a great host with quick communication and easy check in/check out. The space was clean. Very nice updated bathroom

    Nestled on 4.4 acres our home is a short 5 minute walk from the center of Gambier and Kenyon College. Despite being centrally-located, the home is a private getaway in the woods. With a large paved turn around drive way, guests have plenty of parking and room to maneuver vehicles.
  • Drew's place is comfortable and nice, and there are plenty of dishes and pots and pans in the kitchen for preparing your own food (as well as a full spice rack and a few other essentials). It's really quite close to Kenyon College (half mile walk to the coffee shop down there). It's very quiet at the house, and there are plenty of rooms (most are a good size, too) to spread out. We had cell reception at the house, and there is good wifi as well. There is a full laundry room, and plenty of closet space if you need to hang anything. We had a great stay!

    Becky2020-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • The gaskin ave inn is the perfect place to stay if you are visiting kenyon. Within walking distance to campus and enough space for your whole family. Rooms are clean and comfy and the house has everything!! Just mad I didn’t discover it sooner!!

    Erin2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • Drew's place was so clean and we were greeted by deer in the front yard. It was magic!! everything we needed was there and the view was beautiful. We need to see it in the spring!

    Heather2019-11-24T00:00:00Z
  • Drew's place is adorable! Very clean and well stocked! Had everything our crew needed. It will be our "go to" place for any future visits!

    Kelley2019-11-03T00:00:00Z

    Keith2019-10-20T00:00:00Z
  • Drew has a beautiful and well-appointed home 1/2 mile from the heart of Gambier and Kenyon college. The setting and location could not be better! The house is well laid out with four bedrooms and two separate living/tv areas. From the spacious and comfortable upstairs living room you can look out over the wooded backyard, and the kitchen has everything needed for cooking and entertaining. Drew was very responsive whenever we had a question and check in and out were a breeze. We hope to stay here again very soon!

    Susan2019-10-13T00:00:00Z
  • Drew's house is beautiful and so clean. Even with several people, the house had plenty of space. There is a well stocked kitchen making it easy to cook. The neighborhood is quiet and safe. Would absolutely stay here again!

    Hcaldwell19882019-09-29T00:00:00Z
  • Lori's cabin offered the perfect space for us to get away from the hustle and bustle of our everyday lives and relax. We utilized the hot tub quite a bit and enjoyed a camp fire under the stars. The only thing I would suggest if you are planning on staying in and cooking, is bringing your own skillet. The one provided is not the greatest but the rest of the dinner wear/utensils really came in handy. We always forget at least one thing. Other than that I do not have any complaints, the couple staying in the cabin next to us were respectful, friendly and stayed to themselves.

    Hilary2019-09-22T00:00:00Z
  • This cabin is adorable! It’s cozy, quiet and very private. The hot tub was relaxing and the bed was comfortable. It met all of our needs and it was pretty close to restaurants in town and also the waterfall we were looking forward to seeing as well ❤️

    Private, tranquil, and beautiful setting for this cabin getaway. Secluded, yet conveniently located 3.5 miles from Kenyon College, 4 Miles to Apple Valley Lake, and 3 miles from Mt. Vernon's shopping, food, and entertainment. Top-notch building materials throughout with exposed wood beams, polished concrete counter-tops. Covered porch and sitting area with fireplace overlooking a small pond. One bedroom and a large loft with 2 twin beds. Please Note: The indoor fireplace is no longer available.
    This property is located on a non-thru gravel road. Just off a state highway, but feels like it's in the middle of nowhere, in a good way.
  • Great place for a getaway. Private, clean and very comfortable. We really enjoyed walking the property with our dogs and the view of the night sky was gorgeous.

    Lindsay2020-02-16T00:00:00Z
  • I needed a quiet/ relaxing place to stay on a recent business trip and this place was perfect. Completely secluded but only minuets from town. I couldn’t have enjoyed the location or cabin more. That view👍👍👍👍👍

  • Lovely space near Mt Vernon, OH. We were in town for the Wood Splitter Winter Solstice Endurance Race and it was a perfect place to stay. Less than 10 minutes from lots of restaurants and shops, and about 25min from the race location. The fireplace was just what we needed after being out in the cold for a full day. Cosy with a lovely view. Firewood is on premises for purchase which was really appreciated!

  • The feel of this lovely cabin was incredibly relaxing and peaceful! My boyfriend and I wanted to spend our new year away from everything and this was the perfect place to do so! Hot tub under the stairs was the best! We will be back!

  • The hot tub was amazing! Great place overall.

  • I loved staying at this cozy cabin. The hot tub had a lovely view of the woods. It was so peaceful here! The fire stove is a nice touch too. I had a relaxing cozy stay here and would recommend a visit! It's also not too far from a few small towns. I was able to have pizza delivered easily. I also stopped in at Howard Hilton and would highly recommend their burgers. Would love to stay again!

  • Easy to find off of the main road, dirt road, and driveways. Cabin is nice and small and cozy. Its about 200 ft from another cabin, but the backdoor/fire ring/hot tub area was sufficiently private to forget you're near anything else. Furnace worked great making the cabin warm quickly. Hot tub was nice and clean. We grilled out, built a nice fire (bring your own firewood), and relaxed in the hot tub at night. During the day, I highly suggest walking the trails and seeing the waterfalls river at Honey Run Park. They are very beautiful for a romantic hike. We hiked all day and really enjoyed it. Not much civilization nearby so would recommend planning ahead and bringing everything you need. Overall a decently priced, quiet, remote getaway for a night or two.

  • This cabin is beautiful. It's everything you need for a getaway. My husband and I enjoyed the hot tub, and fire pit the most. We hope to go back again soon!

    Danville, OH, United States

    Welcome to a small piece of paradise in the rolling hills of Central Ohio! We are just outside of Mount Vernon, and it is 2.5 miles to Kenyon College and to Mt. Vernon Nazarene U. We are close to Granville, Amish Country and Mohican State Park. Our welcoming, large place is fully equipped with a kitchen, library, and two bedrooms with very comfy queen beds. It has great natural light and wonderful views! Note: This space is upstairs, one flight. We accept pets; please contact me first! Thanks!
    Your private apartment offers a large, relaxing library and plenty of room to chill out, read, watch tv, surf the web, cook, or whatever your heart desires! The bedrooms are at opposite ends of the space and offer great privacy to all guests.
    We live in the country, on a beautiful road just perfect for walking and hearing the birds sing. We do have cropland on either side of us, so our setting is quite peaceful! Neighbors are a few hundred yards away, so you can really enjoy your retreat.

  • A lovely and spacious suite with plenty of charming touches (the library was a huge hit with my family), and within easy reach of Kenyon College. Great communication, even when we booked at the last possible moment. Very much recommended if you find yourself visiting Gambier.

    Eamon2019-12-01T00:00:00Z
  • Barbara was such a great host! The space is just as quaint and cozy as the pictures. There were thoughtful touches everywhere and we appreciated all of them. We will certainly be staying again and are looking forward to it.

  • This is a well maintained. and comfortable home. Barbara is a welcoming and warm hostess who goes the extra mile to make her guests comfortable and feel cared for. It's unique library and open space made it perfect as a place to relax and entertain. We have enjoyed staying there twice and will definitely return. Perfect location for visiting Kenyon College.
