    The home in Gambier has everything needed for a perfect stay. Well appointed, super clean, and a convenient walk to the college. Couldn't be happier.

    We were pleased with the rental! It was spotless, easy process from check-in to check-out. The kitchen was the best equipped kitchen I have ever had a rental. We look forward to coming back : )

  • Wonderful Accommodations


    Beautiful home in a wonderful, quiet part of town. Very close to campus. We had a great experience in Gambier. The home has everything you could possibly need. Lovely outdoor porch looks out on an expansive backyard. The hosts are very friendly. Highly recommend this lovely 19th century home that has been recently upgraded to all the 21st century comforts.
