We had a great time at the schoolhouse!! We came for a long weekend to celebrate my son's birthday. Check in was super easy and Kristin even left a balloon and small gift for our son. He had a great time ringing the school bell (hope we didn't drive the neighbors too crazy!) and going next door to feed the animals (one of the trip highlights for him). Newport was a little further than we expected (about 35-40 minute drive), but we made it there both days of our stay and really enjoyed being more out in the country. Wish we had one more day to explore the local area more. Lots of cute shops nearby! Would definitely recommend staying here to anyone. Kristin is a great host and made sure we had everything we could possibly need.
