Three of us visited the SchoolHouse for one night in June, 2014. We booked a two room house for one night. We planned on catching the chairlifts up to the wall, walking it, and riding the toboggan back down.
I was very very impressed with the accommodation - we stayed in the 'Hearts Desire' house. A very relaxing, traditional but modern style house. It had two separate parts to it. The first, a large open living space, with a very modern kitchen, wall to floor windows, views of the mountains all around, and even the great wall in some parts. The second part was the sleeping quarters. Two large bedrooms, air conditioned/heated, with new comfortable beds. There was also a very large courtyard that joined the two living quarters, which included a BBQ, outdoor dining area and grassed area. It also included free wifi which was a bonus.
We brought all of our own food, so be prepared. There is a reastaurant at the main SchoolHouse, but i think its best to bring your own, and enjoy the surrounds the house has to offer.
Ill definitely make the trip back here.
