Overview

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. We provide complimentary Sakonnet Farm Fresh Eggs (seasonally) and Keriug Coffee during your stay.

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 two other VRBO properties, Potters Corner in neighboring Little Compton and the Captain Philip Cory House located in the Historic Tiverton Four Corners area. All Sakonnet Farm properties are maintained with the same high level attention to detail.

moving stay

  • 5 of 5

The Schoolhouse No. 1 is a wonderful place to stay. Very comfortable, very very well supplied for the kitchen...could use a few more paring knives. I had a delightful time and will be recommending this property to many people. It might be helpful if there were a 6 ft. folding table and chairs for hosting a dinner. We were one chair short. We hated to check out, but the schoolhouse was not available for more than four nights.

Wonderful property and location

  • 5 of 5

We were drawn to this property by its historic charm and location in Rhode Island and it was everything we'd hoped for and more. The schoolhouse is so beautifully restored and well looked after, but has all the modern conveniences of a family home. Our children absolutely loved the location next to the farm, visiting the goats and chickens and being out in the country. Tiverton Four Corners is only a short walk away and it's very pretty and everyone was so friendly. We're from England so we wanted a base to see the wider area, again the location was perfect for us with easy access to so many interesting places and lots to do and see. The local beaches and woodland walks are really special. Thanks for a wonderful nine-day stay, we miss it so much!

So much fun!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Schoolhouse for our Easter holiday and just loved it. It was very clean and beautiful inside. We rang the school bell, visited the farm stand next door and saw the goats and chickens. We had fun exploring the nearby shops and also two beautiful beaches. Lee's market was good for any provisions we needed and all in all a beautiful area and wonderful time. We'd definitely love to come back.

Perfect getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We booked the schoolhouse for an end of Winter getaway. It was the perfect place to relax and unwind. The house is so clean and spacious. The layout works so well. Even when it started to snow a bit it was so scenic and beautiful to watch. I loved how we had one level living, yet we could still have privacy as well. It was such a great family weekend, where we spent time with our son and no one else. He loved it!! We can't wait to come back in the warmer weather!!

Schoolhouse stay

  • 5 of 5

We had a crew of 9 staying at the schoolhouse following a relative's funeral service and a snow storm. It was great to get back to the cozy schoolhouse for a meal and sleep at last. We found it is possible to have someone sleep comfortably on the couch, and even had someone sleep on the back cushions laid down on the floor. It is very clean little house, with nice kitchen and living room space.
