Are you visiting Kenyon or Mount Vernon Nazarene University and looking for somewhere to stay? Enjoy cooking your own meals while you're away? This is the place for you! We're located about a mile from MVNU and 4 miles from Kenyon (where we both work). The Kokosing Gap Trail is also just a short trip down the road. We list this home for four guests, but you're welcome to bring extras (and crash on the couch/air mattress) for a small additional fee.

Guests will have access to two of the three bedrooms, all bathrooms, and the garage. Guests are welcome to do their laundry (please don't overfill the washer!) and use any of the cookware in the kitchen.

Anything "off limits" will be closed off in the third bedroom.

The house is all yours for the duration of your stay, so you won't be restricted by our early bedtime :)

Our neighborhood is conveniently located half-way between Gambier and downtown Mount Vernon. We're close to nature, history, and education!

Mount Vernon isn't exactly known for its public transit system, but there is an affordable bus system that runs through Knox County

We have two cats (who won't be joining you, don't worry!), so please keep that in mind when making your reservations. We would hate to have you spend the weekend sneezing!

House Rules

We hope you enjoy your visit and we have only a few expectations:

1. No smoking
2. No pets (unless we have discussed this in advance; we're open to pets on a case-by-case basis)
3. Please respect our awesome quiet neighborhood and keep the debauchery to a dull roar

We stayed here for Kenyon family weekend. Really convenient location in a quiet neighborhood, and the house was exactly as pictured, clean and neat as a pin. Kim and Grant left us a great selection of snacks and coffee, and Kim was so helpful before our visit answering my questions about the area. The kitchen was well appointed, so we were able to cook dinner for our daughter - something she misses while at college.

This house is super convenient to Kenyon college. We rented it for graduation weekend and it was perfect. Clean and roomy with a large and comfortable sofa that can sleep an extra person, and a nice deck out back for socializing. Kim left snacks and breakfast foods, so we never had to go looking for a store. But if we had, it wouldn't have been an issue because the location is excellent.

Kim and Grant were very welcoming both in person and via email. They provided us with coffee and breakfast food (bagels, O.J., etc) which was a very nice touch. We enjoyed the comfortable and clean space as well as the quiet neighborhood. We hope to have the opportunity to stay here again when visiting our daughter at Kenyon College.

The house was perfect for our needs! We were traveling to Kenyon College for our son's graduation and needed a comfortable and inviting place to stay. We had grandparents and other family from around the country staying at hotels in the area and the house was a perfect place for us to gather and get away from the hectic pace of graduation festivities! They have a beautiful backyard! Comfortable beds, nice bathrooms. They had plenty of drinks and snacks for us when we arrived. I highly recommend.
