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.

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.

Stylish and homey stay in a beautiful area

  • 5 of 5
We stayed here for our wedding weekend and it could not have been a better place to relax, hang out with girlfriends as I was getting my hair and makeup done, and even have a mini photo shoot out front. Make sure to visit the chickens next door!

Wonderfully Cozy Piece of History

We stayed here for our wedding weekend and found it was absolutely perfect. We appreciated the personalized welcome sign, the complete and CLEAN kitchen, as well as having farm fresh eggs and other local products available. Highly recommended. I would stay there again!

Perfect Family Getaway!

  • 5 of 5
What a special place with an interesting history of how the school became a 2 bedroom house and updated amenities. Also, my five year old son and 18months daughter had their first experience with live chickens, ducks and goats in the farm next door and had a great time. We will definitely go back again!

Wonderful romantic getaway location

  • 5 of 5
We had a great long weekend at the old schoolhouse. The property has been tastefully restored with every modern convenience and afforded us some much-needed downtime as well as a convenient base of operations for exploring the surrounding area.

A perfect farm stay!

  • 5 of 5
What a lovely place! We stayed at the schoolhouse during the memorial day weekend and had a great time. My two year old daughter loves farm animals and this was just the right place for her. The farm had lots of chickens, goats, ducks and some kitty cats too. There is a little walking trail behind the farm and a small creek. My daughter loved throwing pebbles into it :) and the swing nearby added the right touch.

The schoolhouse itself was lovely and clean. The kitchen is very well done with a huge island and all. It was well stocked and we loved the complimentary eggs during the stay :). The bedrooms were the right size for us. The living room was very comfortable too.

The back of the house has a little yard and a sitting area too.

There is so much history in this place.

Overall the schoolhouse is fantastic and we would highly recommend it.
