Ok folks... Here's the thing.... If you're looking for a five star hotel with all the amenities, this place is not for you. It's simple, like a 50's motel where the "parking in front of your room" space is now an old fashion garden full of a variety of plants and sidewalks. There are spaces in front of the room...

love this place! so cozy and the staff is exceptional. I stay here every time I visit my son at Kenyon because it's the best in the area! Great value and extreme comfort. This time I was with my husband and we stayed in a larger room. The room was perfect, wonderfully decorated and extremely clean - despite the fact...

My Grandson is a student at Kenyon College. We stayed at the Mount Vernon Inn on the weekend of 10/12-2012. We stayed in the Philander Chase Cottage. There were 5 of us. It is a wonderfully roomy cottage with full kitchen. There are 2 baths although both are downstairs. It was perfect for our family. The stairs are steep to...

I have stayed at this property before and this time stayed in the cottage. As other reviewers have said the cottage is really nice. It has easy entry and a full kitchen. Yes the stairs to the second level are steep and I would not recommend for an elderly person or someone with limitations. My only criticisms would be that...

We intentionally stayed here because it would be nicer and less expensive than a local hotel for our group of seven adults. The main house and lobby where the breakfast is served was fairly impressive, and the grounds were well maintained. Unfortunately, our accommodations in the Dan Emmett House were less than satisfactory. First, it was dirty - black, inexplicable...

Once again our stay was delightful. Rooms are small, but comfortable and very clean. Courtyard garden is a pleasant retreat for enjoying your coffee, tea, etc, quietly read, or just sit and relax. Staff is welcoming, helpful, and friendly. We'll be staying there again.

I relied on the website, and was disappointed when we checked in. The room we stayed in was not nearly as nice as the photos online. There was an ugly dark bedspread but no comforter. It felt more like a motel room than an Inn. Plus the generic soap and the combination bath wash/shampoo was not what we expected, and...

Basically The Mount Vernon Inn is a beautiful antique Federal style house coupled with a 1950s motor court that has had the court converted to a lovely garden. It is a very clever re"use" of the motor court form. The rooms have been completely refurbished and are really quite elegant. Breakfast is in the antique house. The breakfast is terrific...
