About Patricia Wolf

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.

Why Patricia Wolf chose Ohio

Just down the road from the Gambier Loft, is the Kokosing River, a state scenic river. Its clear waters are great for kayaking, canoeing, fishing, and swimming. The Kokosing Gap Bike Trail follows the river and is known for its picturesque rural views. The Farm sits between two historic churches and is only 3 miles from charming Gambier, Ohio and Kenyon College. It is about 5 miles from Mount Vernon, Ohio and Mount Vernon Nazarene University. Holmes County and the heart of Amish country is 45 minutes to the north and the Columbus, Ohio is 45 minutes to the south.

Slice of Heaven in Ohio!

  • 5 of 5

My daughter and I were on a college tour of Ohio. We decided to stay outside of Kenyon and I'm very glad that we did. The converted barn is a beauty and the flora and fauna around it are breathtaking. Patricia was the consummate hostess and provided a very helpful tour and even stocked the fridge with some essentials before we arrived! From the Keurig coffee maker to the Nest thermostat, the loft had all the modern conveniences with a lot more history and hominess than any other choice of accommodation in the area. My only regret is that we didn't get the chance to spend more time in the area!

Beautiful, tranquil, well-appointed, cared for and cozy, Gambier Loft was all we expected and more. Patricia was a warm, generous host and thought of literally everything! Big and small touches made our stay extra special. And you can't beat waking up to that gorgeous view of the countryside. Enthusiastically recommended! A+++

very nice

We stayed 1 night and Patrica went out of her way to make sure we had everything we needed. I really enjoyed just "looking" at the renovation to the loft. It was exactly what we had hoped for.
