Over the past several years I have had the opportunity to stay at the Schoolhouse several times. It has always been a pleasant stay, and the history accompanying the old school and community make for a unique experience. Recently they have put a lot of work into the outdoor areas, including refinishing the tennis courts.
The rooms are somewhat dated, but have a very comfortable feel. The conversion from an old school to hotel led to a slightly different room layout in some rooms. They are all very roomy and have always been clean. The staff are helpful and full of information about the area.
The continental breakfast may not be enough for some, and is limited in selection, but there is a restaurant in town as well as a country store a few miles down the road.
Overall, it's a comfortable place to get some rest and learn a little small town eastern Kentucky history.
