Travis Ward and his staff stand out with their courtesy almost as much as this jewel of an inn does. There is not another place like this. Beautiful old schoolhouse lit on the hill when you drive onto the property. Rooms are charming. The food is spectacular and the staff is amazing. A true must visit for you

Our church group stayed here when we were on a mission trip for the Kentucky Project. Travis and his staff was very accommodating to us. The on-site restaurant was a huge plus for us. Our kids loved the ghost stories one of the staff told them. Some people complained about the mattresses but ours slept fine. We plan on using them again this year.

My wife and I traveled here over the holiday weekend to spend one night and experience the schoolhouse and was not disappointed. We did not start out well as when we arrived to check in the room they had for us they had the door propped open with a piece of wood, Upon carrying our luggage in and closing the door we immediately realized that the floors had been refinished in the recent past week or so and stunk to high heaven. (This is so ironic as the reason for our weekend trip here was because we had our own 100 plus year old wood floors refinished and was getting away from the smell for a few days.) After a short time the smell started giving us a headache so I went to the desk looking for a different room. After a little while the nice lady realized she had a cancellation and moved us to a different room. After that we had a great time visiting the local museum and going to a real coal mine in the next community a short distance up the road. The room was clean and comfortable with good a/c , the only complaint would be the cheaper mattress that hurt my lower back after awhile. They have a pretty good in house restaurant that we enjoyed for lunch and dinner and was pleased with both meals. The provided continental breakfast left a lot to be desired so we just got coffee and went down the road for a fast food breakfast, your choices are very limited for a pretty good ways. Overall we enjoyed our visit to the area and would recommend the schoolhouse.

This is a schoolhouse built in the 20's that has been converted to a hotel. The rooms are the old classrooms, the lockers are still in the hallway. Outside patio is beautiful. Rooms are clean and simple. Rate was reasonable. restaurant was closed (Monday) but Jackie our host made us drinks. We had a great time there.

We stayed here when my father-in-law passed away. The atmosphere was comfortable and homey, yet the charm in the old school was familiar yet different. I travel a bit with my job and stay in Marriotts and Hiltons typically...I have to say, I love this place! It is an unforgettable experience!
