You’ll love the Schoolhouse for it's relaxing atmosphere, remodeled rooms with private walk-in showers, A playful reminiscing motif of old school memories like chalkboards in each room, indoor volleyball & basketball, stage, high ceilings, tall windows.

Interaction with guests
My husband and myself are available to answer questions, recommendations, ideas, directions or good conversation about the area. We also give you all the privacy you wish. We operate the Bonk Stop Grill to the West. If you need something, you should easily be able to locate one of us or other staff to answer questions or assist you. Once in a while we do venture off for a trail ride or give others a 9 mile ride up to the route of the Hiawatha for their trail ride. We have 2 fur babies, you may however never see them. They spend time next doors when guest are at the schoolhouse. If they accompany us over here, they are never allowed on the beds. If you bring your own fur baby (dogs only, no cats) we hope that you will also keep your fur baby
