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.

Really great, can't wait to visit again!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I spent the majority of our honeymoon at the Four Corners Tiverton Schoolhouse and loved it. The owners were extremely helpful and friendly and made our stay extra special.

The kitchen was well stocked with cooking implements to made our own meals if we so chose, and there was good food and grocers within close driving distance. The master bedroom was both spacious as well as very comfortable. The washer/dryer was a huge help as well! There is schoolhouse themed decor throughout the home, giving it a very nice cozy feeling.

Overall, the home was warm and comfortable and charming and we can't wait to visit again in the future!

The only drawbacks were a fireplace that tended to let too much smoke into the house, and we recommend guests use a firelog as opposed to split wood. A firepit outdoors would be an ideal addition to our stay! Lastly, the cable television offerings didn't have much to watch in our opinion, and there was no smartTV or DVD player to watch films or stream content. Highly recommend bringing your own device or a Chromecast type dongle.

Loved everything overall, thanks to the owners for their gracious and lovely accomodations.

Great Building

  • 3 of 5

The schoolhouse was impressive. Very clean. The grounds were pretty even in the fall. The schoolhouse sits on a well traveled road and is a bit noisy. No firewood provided or regular coffee for machine. When I called the owner she was very pleasant but no firewood or coffee was provided.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review Cindy. I am sorry that you didn't like any of the coffee selections we left in the basket and that you were not able have a fire while you were here. The hurricane winds during your stay made that quite difficult.

WONDERFUL property!

  • 5 of 5

Staying at the Four Corners Schoolhouse was comfortable, fun and overall an excellent experience. The decor is simple, with clean lines and no clutter! The art and framed information about the history and renovations of the schoolhouse itself were informative and an added bonus. I had a little trouble with internet access and one call to the owner and she was on site and fixed the issue immediately! Her response was gracious and helpful. The linens and towels were high end and the kitchen was well furnished both with cooking and eating paraphernalia and the cupboard necessities: spices, oils, vinegars, etc. A lovely touch was the dozen fresh eggs from their farm that were in the refrigerator when we arrived. I would stay there again in a minute! Thank you so much! krismartin

Beautiful cottage!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent four nights at the Tiverton Schoolhouse recently and couldn't be happier! We've stayed in a a lot of VRBO properties all over the country and this one had the highest quality renovations of any we've stayed in. Very nice! And it was the cleanest. Also, the location is great for feeling like you've gotten away to the country and yet it's not far to drive into Newport or explore other parts of Rhode Island or Massachusetts. We loved sitting out on the brick patio in the garden. This little house is perfect!
