Property description

Gambier Loft - This historic timber frame barn has been renovated into nightly guest accommodations. The Gambier Loft is nestled on a circa 1800’s farm amid rolling fields, mature trees & spring fed ponds in Gambier, Ohio. The sophisticated, fully furnished 1200 square feet of living space features idyllic panoramic views of the surrounding countryside, soaring ceilings, exposed post and beam construction, hardwood and tile floors, a flat screen television, dining table, comfortable sofa, cozy chairs and fully equipped kitchen with range, microwave, full-size refrigerator, and Amish-made custom cabinetry. The bedroom features an inviting queen size bed with luxurious linens and serene views of the spring-fed pond and pastures beyond. The bath features fresh linens, tile floors, vessel sink, tub/shower, and washer and dryer. There are also two twin beds adorned with plush bedding in the expansive living area that allow for 2 additional guests. (Accommodates 4 guests.)

Owner info

About the owner: The heart of the farm and adjacent to the Gambier Loft is the Gothic farm house, a historic, solid brick and stone gem. The home was built in 1872 by the Smith family, lovingly restored over the past 10 years by the Wolf family and is still a work in progress. It features original Victorian moldings, high ceilings, reclaimed barn wood floors and front and back porches. Adorning the house and the Gambier Loft are colorful perennial gardens. The spring house was the home’s original “summer kitchen” and features a historic root cellar, the refrigeration for the farm in the 1800’s. There are two other hand- hewn, post and beam structures on the property other than the Gambier Loft. One is the original chicken house and the other is the large bank barn. The Farm has panoramic views of rolling hills, woods, streams, spring-fed ponds, cattle and an abundance of wildlife. One might see deer, turkeys, foxes, coyotes, bald eagles, hawks and unusual water fowl in the spring.
