OLD TIVERTON FOUR CORNERS SCHOOLHOUSE NO. 1 - CIRCA 1800 BY SAKONNET FARM

Tiverton House Rental Photos and Description

House, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4)

The Old Tiverton Four Corners Schoolhouse No. 1 is located within Historic Tiverton Four Corners. Let your imagination wander back to the mid 1800’s as you pass through the proper boys or girls door into this fully remodeled structure. Ring the working vintage twenty-four inch, cast-iron school bell to gather your friends and family for an old-fashioned meal prepared with local produce and cooked in our gourmet kitchen equipped with the latest fixtures for your convenience. Marvel at our collection of period décor and historic schoolhouse memorabilia as you relax in the spacious living room equipped with comfortable seating, a large 46' HDLCD TV, a working wood-burning stone fireplace, and central air conditioning / heating. Wide-plank pine flooring finished with an old fashioned and environmentally friendly Tung oil with citrus helps maintain the historic charm.

Tiverton Four Corners Schoolhouse No. 1 was built in 1800 by the Manchester Family, one of the original founding families of Tiverton. The Town realized the need for public education in the mid 1800’s, which at that time was typically provided for in private homes. In 1854 the Manchesters sold the property to the town for one hundred dollars with the right to buy it back when and if the town disposed of it. The Town of Tiverton used the Schoolhouse until 1925, a period in time when the advent of motorized bus transportation afforded consolidations to regional schools. Schoolhouse No. 1 was closed in 1925 when Nonquit School was opened and subsequently sold at auction in 1928 for one-hundred eighty dollars to Mr. and Mrs. Manuel Rego. The Regos converted it into a single family home where their family lived up until the early 1970's. Much to our surprise, the original bell is alive and well in Maine.

The Schoolhouse has two bedrooms and one bathroom equipped with a Whirlpool tub. The master bedroom has a king size bed fitted with a luxurious ten inch foam mattress covered with Egyptian linens. A wall-mounted 32' LED TV complete with cable access will help insure a relaxing finish to your day. The second bedroom is outfitted twin bunk-beds and a 26' LED TV to accommodate friends or family. WI-FI is provided free of charge for those of you who like to stay in touch while you are on vacation. A high-efficiency laundry system is available if you plan on an extended stay.

When you’re done exploring inside, take a walk around the five-acre grounds where you will find meandering streams, vegetable and herb gardens, path through the woods, plenty of chickens, ducks, four goats (Maggie, Lucy, Bandit, and Snickers). If your timing is right, you can help us gather a couple of eggs for breakfast, harvest some fresh herbs to complement your evening meal or perhaps pick some fresh vegetables for a garden salad. After you are done strolling the grounds, amble a short five minute walk north to visit the heart of Historic Tiverton Four Corners, a quaint three-hundred year old cross-roads village. There you will find unique shops, restaurants, Gray’s Ice Cream shop, an Arts Center, Art Galleries, and many other establishments. If you plan on cooking, be sure to visit one of the nearby roadside stands for some tender, sweet, fresh-picked corn.

If you find the Schoolhouse already booked for the dates you wish to travel or have a larger party in need of more space, please check out our other vacation rental in neighboring Little Compton. It's called Potters Corner and can also be found here on VRBO. Potters Corner is a brand new 3000s.f. Colonial with high end appointments and will be maintained with our same attention to detail.

Charming Honeymoon Getaway

My new hubby and I were fortunate to stay at the schoolhouse for our honeymoon - what a charming and unique place to stay! We loved it! Adam and Kristen have really created an inviting atmosphere, adding all sorts of nice little details that really made the place feel like home (Not to mention, it's really hard to escape the awesomeness factor of staying in a schoolhouse!) We especially enjoyed preparing our own meals together in the well-outfitted kitchen. The wide variety of coffees that accompanied the Keurig was a great treat to come home to on a chilly evening. You will love your stay at the schoolhouse! Thank you, Adam and Kristen!

We were looking for a weekend away from Providence, and found that Tiverton fit the bill perfectly. What it lacks in distance, it makes up for in its magical ability to transport you to another time. Historical charm with modern conveniences in an impossibly scenic corner of the state close to everything, I highly recommend the Schoolhouse. Ring the bell! Visit the goats!

This amazing little spot was perfect for our family to come for the weekend to play and relax! What a little gem. It is impeccably maintained, totally updated, very cozy, and still kept its historic charm. We would come back again and again to keep exploring the beautiful area.

I would like to say that this schoolhouse is absolutely the cutest and most unique accomodation for anyone who visits this part of the state. Kristen and Adam's hospitality were outstanding and making our stay not onl;y feel welcome but special, especially because it was part of our wedding weekend. the photos do not do the school house charm justice. although the pictures are accurate and nice, the school house is absolutly more than that. the added charm and authentic touches that they have throughout the school make it even more enjoyable. The school bell and chalk board are definatly a huge hit!
Kristen made our weekend even more special by the sweet welcoming note on the chalkboard and the flowers that were left in various rooms.
We would highly reccomend this to anyone who wishes to visit Tiverton's beautiful charm.
