Overview

About the property

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.

great little place

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay at the Schoolhouse. The place was immaculate, the sheets and towels so soft and comfortable, as were all the beds.

During our stay there was a small problem with the wifi (turns out it was a problem in the general area, not just at the property) and Kristin was very responsive.

One note about the sleeping arrangements: a taller adult might have difficulty using the top bunk. There isn't a lot of room between the bed and the ceiling.

Good amount of closet and bureau space too.

A treasure.

  • 5 of 5

More than a B & B. Historical experience for our family, especially appreciated the artifacts placed around the home and the children's book. We highly recommend this to all.

Fun!

  • 5 of 5

This place is amazing! The renovation is great, with all the modern conveniences. The decor was perfectly 'schoolhouse-y' too. A really fun place to stay, with easy walk to Four Corners shops, galleries, and restaurants.

Wonderful stay in Tiverton!

  • 5 of 5

My parents and I travelled to Tiverton for a long weekend and a wedding at the Stone House in Little Compton. I booked the schoolhouse as it was a great location and just what we needed space wise. I was completely surprised just how wonderful this charming home is, from the cute outdoor space, to the lovely period decorations. The owner has a nicely stocked pantry for a short stay as well. We spent one long day in Newport touring the mansions and the Cliff Walk. I would definitely recommend this property to family and friends and hope to return again.
