Nome Schoolhouse

A unique Inn & Event Center shaped by creators for creators, dreamers & those wanting to get away.
There is no place like Nome!
 

Hey There

We’re Chris and Teresa.

the dynamic duo of fiber arts. Yep, you heard that right! We’re talking knitting, felting, weaving, and everything in between!

But wait, there’s more! We’re also proud owners of a 100-year-old abandoned school building that we’ve transformed into a wonderland of creativity. We’ve poured our blood, sweat, and tears (and let’s be real, a whole lotta money) into restoring this historic gem to its former glory.

And now, we’re ready to share the love! Whether you’re a fiber arts fanatic or just a curious soul looking to explore your creative side, we’ve got something for everyone. So come on down and soak up the inspiration, the community, and the sheer joy of making something with your own two hands. We can’t wait to meet you!

The Perfect Escape!

Our beautifully restored schoolhouse offers guests inspiring spaces where they can immerse themselves in the kind of peace and tranquility that is unique to rural North Dakota.  Nestled on the edge of the small community of Nome, our fiber arts retreat center proudly boasts our state’s agriculture heritage. With a desire to share that heritage with others we were intentional in our design. Using an open floor plan, we were able to recreate the wide open spaces that North Dakota is known and loved for. Floor to ceiling windows throughout allow our guests to experience the beautiful outdoors while enjoying all the indoor comforts of our tastefully appointed Fiber Arts Boutique Hotel and Event Center.  With abundant natural lighting that feeds your soul and nourishes your senses, makers, will appreciate creating in a space that not only connects them to their work, but to the elements surrounding them.

Stay with us at the Nome Schoolhouse

Imagine waking, rest filled, to the distant sound of a Meadowlark’s song. Imagine opening the curtains to a view of rolling grasslands and miles of blue sky. Imagine a place where you can go to nourish your senses and wake up replenished as green grass after a spring rain. 

These are the experiences possible after staying in one of our 11 tastefully appointed, full service, Boutique Hotel rooms. Because we want your stay to be as comfortable as possible, we have rooms available to suit a variety of needs including a large suite, individual accommodations, family and friend rooms as well as dog friendly rooms. Each of our guest rooms has its own private bathroom and offers an experience as close to home as possible. It’s no wonder our guests leave saying, “there’s no place like Nome.”
