The old Upper Chetco School is now open as a rustic getaway for families, fishermen, hikers, bikers, swimmers and people who love the Chetco River! Short miles to Riverside Market going back to town or Loeb Park heading up river. As only locals know Brookings is home to the beautiful banana belt which comes with a marine layer frequent in the summer. Just above the fog line, enjoy a short trip to the ocean for the day and then retreat to sunshine and a swim in the river at Loeb Park or one of the many river bars on the Chetco.
The South Wing consists of two large "schoolrooms." One with a modest kitchen and open living room. The living room has two couches and a futon that can be used as a bed. The second houses the library books from the school along with 3 queen sized beds. The large bathroom has an overhead shower and roomy stall area. Converted from school rooms, this rental is unique and unconventional. Some of the perks include a playground at your doorstep, a large stone fire pit and bbq, an outdoor basketball court, a library with hundreds of interesting reads, and spacious rooms. Surrounded by horse pastures we have a large parking area and are fully wheelchair accessible. Enjoy the Upper Chetco ideally located at the gateway to the Upper Chetco River and the Kalmiopis Wilderness area.
We had a great time at the school, playing pool in the game room and tetherball in the yard. The rooms are huge but thoughtfully arranged so it still feels cozy, with lots of comfy areas to relax. The location is perfect - close to town but far enough away for peace and quiet. And our dogs had a ball exploring the enormous yard!
This was our second stay at the Schoolhouse. The weather was pretty bad so we only spent a couple of hours at the beach. But our kids didn't mind because we spent hours in the gym! This is such a fun place to stay. The game room has been improved with nice paint and new lighting. The WiFi was improved and very fast. Great overall experience for families.
This is such a great, unique place to stay! Stayed with our twin 7 yr olds and 10 yr old. They loved it so much, we hardly went to the beach! They loved playing dodgeball in the gym. The fire pit was great for roasting marshmellows. Loved that it was so well stocked. The beds were pretty comfortable. I do wish the internet worked better, but that can be fixed easily.
As many other reviews have stated- this place is very cool! What a great idea to convert on old schoolhouse to a vacation rental. It is eclectic, charming, and has ample supplies. The kitchen/living room is open concept and has ample seating for 12+ adults, not including the table and bar. Our kids loved the school room, gym (all balls included) and the playground. There are so many unique things to appreciate about this house- hammock in bedroom, library nook with new and old books, the laundry room on site, and plenty of games and movies to watch. With kids, there is always the fear of making a mess- well, at this rental- they were outside playing or in the gym the whole time! NICE! Bonus- there is another side of the school that is currently being renovated; in the future, you could probably rent the entire space and that would allow a very large party to stay here. We will be back!
We had the BEST time, kids and adults alike, at the Chetco School - everything about it from the sleeping quarters, living and kitchen space, outside area, and the activity room! Could have stayed an extra few days without getting bored... we will be back for sure! Thank you Erin, for being so enjoyable and professional to work with. We absolutely loved it!

Although this property is ideal for large groups, there is only one bathroom and one bedroom. If the number of people exceeds 7 additional charges apply. In addition, we have had to add damage protection for all due to the ill use of a few customers. We expect to be notified if there are broken items and also for things to be put back as they are found. Please note that events are an extra charge and must be noted. The gym and other areas are large and require a lot of cleaning if a large group has a party.
Returning trusted clients can enjoy a reduced fee, just ask. Also the cost of 2 people or less can be reduced to the original 125.00. Just communicate with me and I can offer a quote for a specific amount. Thank you for understanding.
* Approximate monthly rate. Actual rate will depend on the days of the month you stay.
