“Surprising Find”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 April 2012

Usually stay at the Kenyon Inn when I visit my son but they were booked last weekend. Took a chance on Mount Vernon Inn and was pleasantly surprised. The rooms are simple but have everything you could want including a fridge stocked w/ a few goodies, microwave, coffeemaker and plush robe. Didn't have breakfast but breakfast room looked lovely. Great price too- I will definitely be back.

Based on prior reviews and photos on the website, I expected much more charm. Our room was located outside the main house, across a lovely landscaped patio, in a row of rooms that was really just like a typical motel. Our room was a decent size with 2 queen beds and a table with chairs. The armoire for the tv was huge and made the room rather cramped. The bathroom was not only very narrow, but also inconveniently arranged, so that while you were sitting on the toilet, you were surrounded by the long narrow countertop containing the sink. Both my husband and I found it claustrophobic. However, the room was clean and comfortable and the breakfast was quite nice. There was a buffet containing delicious warm bread pudding and fresh fruit and made to order entrees like omelets and pancakes. I asked for an omelet with an ingredient not on the menu, and the cook kindly obliged. Also, if it matters to you, they give you a pass to exercise at the local YMCA, several blocks away.

My daughter and I stayed at the Mt. Vernon Inn while visiting Kenyon College. We absolutely loved our stay. Our room, the White Ash Room, was lovely. It had very recently been remodeled, and everything was in pristine condition. All of the touches are of the highest quality: plush towels, high quality bed linens, and lovely furnishings. Everything was immaculately clean. We couldn't believe that they had put several items in the room refrigerator for us: candy, water bottles, juice, coffee, and popcorn. What a nice touch! The courtyard garden was stunning, even though it was early spring and things were just beginning to bloom. The breakfast was amazing! Everything is fresh and delicious. A buffet is set up with bowls of fresh fruit, yogurt, cottage cheese, pastries, bagels, and cereal. There was freshly made coffee and a selection of teas. In addition to all of that, you can order a main entree off the menu, at no extra charge. I had a delicious, vegetable-filled omelet, while my daughter had scrambled eggs. Both were accompanied by an English muffin. The staff we encountered upon checking in and at breakfast were warm and helpful. Kenyon College is less than ten minutes away. We'd be delighted to stay at the Mt. Vernon Inn again, and we highly recommend it.

We stayed at the Mt. Vernon Inn while touring Kenyon College. Got the recommendation from the already full inn in Gambier. Was an excellent recommendation: ten minute drive from the school, nicely redone room, hot breakfast included and incredibly friendly and accommodating staff. The only criticism I could make would be it's location being across the train tracks and a ten or so minute walk from the Main Street shops/restaurants, though it would be unlikely one would be in that area without a car. If we ever find ourselves back in town I would certainly stay there again.

Room Tip: We stayed in the White Ash room.

When I made this reservation I was under the impression that we would be staying in the main house. However, when checking in was told that our room was "outside and around the corner." At first I thought...really? But was pleasantly surprised. First, that the room was very nice and clean, second, that I was charged $10 less than I would have if the room were inside the main house. Since we were only there for one night (for visit next day at Kenyon College) it really didn't matter to us one way or the other. The breakfast was in one word...AWESOME! I have a very picky eater in my daughter and she loved everything on the buffet (i.e. yogurt, fruit, bagels, etc.) plus they have cooked to order other items (i.e. french toast--yummy!, waffles, etc.). We will definitely stay at this B&B again!
