Old Schools Converted to Bed & Breakfasts

Old School Houses that have been coverted to Hotels, Inns and Bed & Breakfast

Mcmenamins Old St Francis School Hotel, Pub, Theater and Brewery

Mcmenamins Old St Francis School Hotel and BrewPub
The Old St. Francis School has undergone a transformation from 1936 Catholic schoolhouse to lively destination hotel complete with classrooms-turned-lodging rooms, a pub, brewery and bakery, a movie theater, private meeting and event space and a truly fantastic soaking pool that beckons day travelers, shoppers, hikers, skiers and snowboarders alike. One of the most unusual place to stay in Oregon.
   This school offers 19 richly appointed guestrooms and four individual rental cottages with room for 2 to 10 people, perfect for group getaways. Old St. Francis School reopened in its current capacity in November 2004 and we honor the property's former life by featuring extensive artwork that pays homage to the history of the school and the surrounding community.

Dunkle School House in McArthur Ohio

Dunkle School House in McArthur, Ohio
Ever sit at a double desk with your best friend? Did the “teacher’s pet” get to ring the school bell? Remember McGuffey Readers? Were you chosen to wash the blackboard? Did you fall asleep in school? Now you can do all this and more in our restored Dunkle Schoolhouse in scenic Vinton County, Ohio, just north of the friendly little Village of McArthur. Our schoolhouse was built in 1885, the third school building on this site. It hosted its last students in 1936 and became home to a couple of families before sitting empty for several decades before we rescued and restored it during 2006. Several generations of students learned their “3Rs in this building…readin’, ‘riting and ‘rithmitic. Now you can make your own 3Rs…rest, relaxation and romance! Complete Story and Photos.

Davie School Inn - Anna, Illinois

Davie School Inn - Anna, Illinois
Located on quiet Freeman Street, the Davie School Inn provides a peaceful stay in one of Anna's oldest historic buildings. The Inn offers a truly relaxing environment for a couple's getaway or the whole family. Suites all offer 850 square feet of room to relax, private bathrooms with Jacuzzi tubs, king size beds, sitting area kitchenette, and your very own thermostat. WI-FI now available in most of our rooms. The building served as a public school until it was closed in 1996 and sat empty until it was bought by Gary and Andrea Dahmer in 2002. The Dahmer's 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.
