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.

Our suite features a King Size Sleep Number Bed, a sitting area with a couch and rocking chair, as well as a circular table and two chairs. The nightstands are antique sewing machines. The spacious bathroom features a rainfall shower, a sink from a local farmhouse, and a classroom mural that you must see.

Our next-door neighbors, Mike and Mary, have been supportive of the renovation project from the beginning and generously sponsored this Suite. Mike attended the Nome Schoolhouse until 3rd grade when the school closed. With a nod to M&M, you will find everyone’s favorite candy treats.
