  • A restored 1800's schoolhouse with lots of little historical touches


    There are so many small details of history to remind the visitor of the building's history, while also having comfortable accommodations. We spent so much time just looking over all the historical books, primers, old school posters, globes, etc. It was a really nice stay.

    Lovely stay in this schoolhouse studio. Accommodation was clean and comfortable, and great location for exploring historic area, rivers, restaurants and a day trip to DC. Highly recommend!

  • Excellent Getaway


    The area itself is just great. Drive around a while and you will not know if you are in West Virginia or Maryland. The area is absolutely beautiful and there are many places to go. There were not many places that we went that were overly crowded which was a major plus. As for the Schoolhouse...excellent. It is just a great piece of history to stay in and it was in great shape. Look forward to returning again in the future.

    Loved the wide open space for relaxing and hanging out. My husband especially enjoyed sitting at the desk which brought back memories of his days as a principal. The place was well stocked and provided everything we needed. :)
