Property Details

Property Description

The 1891 Schoolhouse Inn perfectly blends historical charm and antique furnishings with present day conveniences and modern updates.

Property Details

The 1891 Schoolhouse Inn was meticulously renovated in 2016 by Dennis Parman of Peaceful Valley Construction. Preserving the history and charm was important. The Schoolhouse Inn has retained many original features including the heart pine flooring, wainscoting on the main floor, 7ft windows with original glass panes and belfry with the original school bell.

Cooking and Eating

New custom-built cabinetry and beautiful wood countertops in the fully equipped kitchen awaits you with a Jenn-Aire gas range, full-size refrigerator, dishwasher and all the tools and gadgets you need to fix a hearty breakfast or that perfect feast. In the spacious living and dining area with 12ft. ceilings you may enjoy your meals at the 1810 Stretcher base table surrounded by comfortable Windsor chairs. The large picture window provides a perfect view of the wooded ravine.


In the beautifully decorated great room with deck access, a wall of glass overlooks the back deck and woods as far as the eye can see. Here you can enjoy the big screen satellite TV and DVD player or curl up on the comfy leather couch and enjoy a good book and a glass of wine. The pot-bellied stove has been replaced by a gas log fireplace for rainy days and cold evenings.


After a long day of biking or hiking, the newly renovated bath features a large walk-in tiled shower and a new custom build cabinet with loads of counter space. With the on-demand water heater, you can enjoy that hot, soothing shower for as long as you like! The large private deck features a four-person hot tub, patio table and a gas grill and firepit for your continued outdoor enjoyment. From the deck, you will enjoy wooded views all year round as each season offers a unique panorama. As bedtime approaches, up the loft-style staircase, you will find the first of two cozy bedrooms with queen-size pillow-top beds.

One Room Schools History

The first settlers came to Brown County around 1820. There were no formal schools until 1835. Hedgesville, a community in the eastern part of Brown County which no longer exists, established the first school. This only lasted for a short time. The second school was constructed in Nashville, two years later. This school was built of native logs and lasted five years. The state legislature set up a system to provide supervision over the schools in each community. Each of the five townships in Brown County had a township trustee that oversay the building of schools and hiring of teachers. The plan was that every schoolhouse was established within walking distance of each child’s home. The trustees were paid a salary out of which they were to finance all this plus buy books, buy firewood, furnish the school, and take care of the maintenance of the building.

Really cute space with great amenities! Thoughtfully appointed, with rustic charm combined with modern convenience (hot tub, kitchen, redone bathroom with plenty of light). Would visit again!

Overall our stay at 1891 Schoolhouse Inn was wonderful. I love how this property is off the beaten path! This cabin preserved the historical appearance of a dwelling in the 1800’s while providing us with modern day amenities such as a dishwasher and an oversized shower. We are already planning a return visit!
New Review by Roberta 08/01/2019
The inn is absolutely wonderful and super clean. We didn’t want for anything and everything was easily accessible. I would definitely recommend the inn to others. Thanks for a great stay!

Perfect weekend getaway for quiet and relaxation with a loved one or small group of friends. Wonderful and unique experience that gave us a real “getaway” moment.

Very clean, cool, unique, quiet school house retreat. You literally don't see another home or cars driving by. It was a wonderful tranquility. Wish I had more time to stay.

Love the fireplace! 🙂 by Joe 02/08/2019
Make a day 30 hours instead of 24 because we hated to leave. Everything was PERFECT. We will be back!

“The Schoolhouse Inn was a perfect getaway for the weekend. We stayed their for our anniversary and enjoyed the time playing board games and reading by the cozy fire as it was snowing outside. It was seriously perfect bliss. The place itself was very clean and comfortable and the beds are more comfortable than most hotels I've stayed at! I would highly recommend staying here and we may return in the future :)”

We absolutely love the serenity of the Schoolhouse Inn. It makes for a relaxing getaway from hectic day-to-day life. We enjoyed the hot tub and watching the sky change. This is the most perfect place to forget everything and enjoy real life.

The property and cabin were in great shape! by Matt 09/14/2018
The property and cabin were in great shape. Everything was well taken care of, clean, and easy to use. We had a great time relaxing in the cabin when we weren't venturing out into what the rest of Brown County offered. We really appreciated the small touches - a bottle of wine, some fresh eggs, a full binder of restaurant, activities and places of interest reviews. There was even a handful of local shops and restaurants that gave us discounts if we brought in the "coupon lanyard" they had for us!
New Review by Emily & Alex 08/03/2018
What a beautiful little corner of the world! Here to celebrate our 1 year anniversary. A year ago we threw our reception in a one room little Schoolhouse. So, how appropriate we should toast the first year of our marriage in one!
Thanks so much for the great place! We loved the Schoolhouse and are looking forward to visiting! by Bryan Arko 07/09/2018
The Schoolhouse was everything we expected and more! Such a great, relaxing place to stay and location was perfect. Secluded and private, while still close to all the fun Nashville has to offer. Will definitely be staying here again!
