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 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.

awesome, fun, adorable, easy

  • 5 of 5

What a great place with everything we needed! Thanks so much for making our weekend easy and accessible. There was plenty of room for all four of us (2 adults; 2 small children). Our oldest loved the chalkboard :). We loved playing in the tub too! Easy, clear directions for everything such as wifi and check in/out. Many thanks!

Cute & Cozy

  • 5 of 5

My cousin and I stayed at Schoolhouse No. 1 in October, 2016. We were visiting all over Rhode Island (especially between Providence and Newport). The schoolhouse was beautifully remodeled and was perfect for the two of us. We had everything we needed to make breakfast with the farm-fresh eggs (which were delicious)! Kristin was easy to get a hold of to help with the A/C and heat. Old Tiverton Four Corners was fun to explore; we loved visiting all the specialty & art shops! We would recommend this little Schoolhouse to anyone looking for a place to stay while visiting Rhode Island!

Wonderful respite

  • 5 of 5

The schoolhouse is beautifully renovated and was a wonderful place to stay during parents weekend with our Brown student. The beds are very comfortable. It is very quiet. The fresh eggs in the fridge were delicious!!! Kitchen is well stocked with pots/pans/utensils/dishes etc. HVAC is top notch. My only recommendation for the schoolhouse would be to rearrange the living room furniture to make a more cozy and intimate setting. Perhaps making the front doors decorative only and using the side door as the main entry would allow the furniture to be arranged in a more cohesive and cozy way.

We loved visiting the farm animals too!! Tiverton provides a perfect backdrop for a romantic getaway by the sea in this gorgeous schoolhouse!! We will return!!

Tiverton Four Corners Schoolhouse

  • 5 of 5

My cousin and I spent a delightful 3 nights in this beautifully converted 1800's schoolhouse, just prior to the special event of her ordination. She wanted me to see Rhode Island in the Fall, so discovered this charming VRBO as one of our bases of operations for the week. It was perfect and the owners were so hospitable! We had fresh, free range eggs, a beautiful kitchen in which to cook as needed, comfortable beds, fireplace as needed, new washer and dryer, lovely grounds. In all, just a lovely setting in an immaculate and wonderfully historic property. The decor was enhanced by all of the research that traced the history and ownership of this beautiful, one-room schoolhouse. Vintage farm implements, toys of the era--made this a fascinating place to stay. I'm hoping to return during summertime, but Fall was gorgeous!

We enjoyed a number of restaurants, including The Mooring in Newport, the Barn in Little Compton, the restaurant overlooking the bay in Portsmouth, delightful shops in Bristol and Tiverton Four Corners, etc. Galleries were fun and so were the farms and farm stands.

The schoolhouse is perfect for just about anyone wishing to explore this lovely part of New England!
