Top 3 Schoolhouse Rentals
With all the kids back in school, HomeAway is going back to school, too, with its top three (former) schoolhouses available to rent for your next vacation:
Gardiner, MT- Renovated in 2009, nearly 100 years after it was...
Renovated in 2009, nearly 100 years after it was built, this one bedroom former schoolhouse was originally a haven for children of immigrant coal miners. Many original items including old school desks and books are still on display, and black and white photos of the property in its early years adorn the walls throughout the historic Montana rental. With picturesque mountain views from every window, a sprawling meadow surrounding the property and fresh eggs delivered to your door upon request, this property takes guests back in history to a simpler time.
Hancock, NY - If contemporary living in a tranquil setting is what...
If contemporary living in a tranquil setting is what you seek, look no further than this converted Catskills rental. Formerly the site of the Cadosia Schoolhouse, built in the 1920's, this modern-day funhouse features plenty of on-site or nearby activities including bike riding, kayaking, hiking, hunting and swimming. To preserve the historical integrity of the property, the two-story red brick structure contains all of the original woodwork as well as familiar extras like a giant chalkboard.
County Mayo, Ireland - Built in 1925, the Old Red Schoolhouse still...
Built in 1925, the Old Red Schoolhouse still exhibits architectural features that reflect its purpose of yesteryear. However, times have changed; despite having two front doors (which once led to separate wings for boys and girls), the renovated home is now a spacious vacation rental equipped for students of all ages. There are plenty of lessons to be learned beyond the property gates as well, as the rental is located near the historic town of Westport.
