My partner and I had a wonderful stay. We really enjoyed the School House and we had everything that we needed. Gas stove and a BBQ was awesome to have during the power outage that resulted from a hurricane. Richard came up to welcome us and was very accommodating.
Great Location , within driving range to the Cabot trail and Louisbourg Fortress
Great accommodations for six adults
Loved the school house. It was very comfortable and cozy. Richard was very accommodating and even checked in with us the morning after we arrived to make sure we got checked in fine. We will definitely stay there again
Very affordable, nice and clean property
The schoolhouse is nicely renovated, very clean, fully supplied, and very affordable too. We had 2 issues that were quickly addressed by the owner (e.g. a fuse blew up and a glitch with a door). The water quality is not great (it's very rich in iron) but the owner supplied bottled water. Our major issue is that nobody welcome us (and we came early, ~4pm), which would have been nice and useful (e.g. to talk about house issues as well as to provide tips and local information). We eventually met the owner due to the fuse issue, and he' provided useful information, but we believe he needs to consider always welcoming his guests. The other issue is that the house is on a long dirt road and the owner should post the exact location (satellite map picture) because google maps can't find it, and it'll be impossible to find it at night time. The final issue is the owner should provide internet, which is very important to tourists to get information about the region.
Hi there, thank you for your review, sorry that I wasn't up to greet you at 4pm but all guest arrive at different times and if I knew that you were there at 4 then I would have came up that is why we leave instructions for access to the property. We do not offer wifi and this is posted on homeaway it is hard to get a good provider in the area as speeds are very slow. Also included are written directions in case the GPS directions take you off course As for google maps I can't speak for them. Im Glad you enjoyed your stay.
Peace and quiet.
I enjoyed the history of the old school house, the staircase was not an easy task being of a certain age, the view was lovely and the drive to get to the house was amazing.
The school how is fantastic it’s central to pretty much everything with much privacy the owners are excellent we will be back thank you for everything
