Year Purchased: 2002
About the owner: 2002 Graduate of SIU and we love the area!!!
This 1910 building served as a public school until it was closed in 1996 and sat empty until it was bought by us in 2002. We have spent many hours in a combination of restoring and remodeling to created an Inn with all the modern conveniences yet still leave the atmosphere of the old school house. Each room still has an original chalk board and book case. The original hardwood floors still show where the student desks left their marks. Each room also has a whirlpool tub and air conditioning, not something you would find in a grade school class room.
Why the Owner Chose Carbondale: Beautiful Southernmost Illinois area, located next to shopping, dining, Shawnee Hills Wine Trail and Shawnee National Forest. From the Inn you can walk downtown to Antique Shop, Visit the one and only Kiki's Coffee, or have Dinner at the Brick House Grill.
