Great location
100% of recent guests gave the location a 5-star rating.
We renovated the home to exactly match the front facade to when it was a schoolhouse. The interior is modern and brand new construction however we've decorated with an historic feel. We scoured eBay and local antique stores for the just the right schoolhouse and local historic memorabilia.

The space
Old Tiverton Four Corners Schoolhouse No. 1 is located within Historic Tiverton Four Corners. The two front doors lead into the living room which is open to the gourmet kitchen. This wide open common area would have been the one room schoolhouse back in the 1800s. There is a functioning wood burning fireplace that our guests are welcome to use. We'll even leave a bag of our firewood to help get you started. There is a large TV located in this living room area.
The Schoolhouse has two bedrooms and one bathroom equipped with a Whirlpool tub. The master bedroom has a king size bed fitted with a luxurious ten inch foam mattress. A wall-mounted LED TV complete with cable access will help insure a relaxing finish to your day. The second bedroom is outfitted twin bunk-beds and an LCD TV to accommodate friends or family. WI-FI is provided free of charge for those of you who like to stay in touch while you are on vacation. A high-efficiency laundry system is available if you plan on an extended stay.

Let your imagination wander back to the mid 1800’s as you pass through the proper boys or girls door into this fully remodeled structure. Ring the working vintage twenty-four inch, cast-iron school bell to gather your friends and family for an old-fashioned meal prepared with local produce and cooked in our gourmet kitchen equipped with the latest fixtures for your convenience. Marvel at our collection of period décor and historic schoolhouse memorabilia as you relax in the spacious living room equipped with comfortable seating, a large LCD TV, a working wood-burning stone fireplace, and central air conditioning / heating. Wide-plank pine flooring finished with an old fashioned and environmentally friendly Tung oil with citrus helps maintain the historic charm.

Tiverton Four Corners Schoolhouse No. 1 was built in 1800 by the Manchester Family, one of the original founding families of Tiverton. The Town realized the need for public education in the mid 1800’s, which at that time was typically provided for in private homes. In 1854 the Manchesters sold the property to the town for one hundred dollars with the right to buy it back when and if the town disposed of it. The Town of Tiverton used the Schoolhouse until 1925, a period in time when the advent of motorized bus transportation afforded consolidations to regional schools. Schoolhouse No. 1 was closed in 1925 when Nonquit School was opened and subsequently sold at auction in 1928 for one-hundred eighty dollars to Mr. and Mrs. Manuel Rego. The Regos converted it into a single family home where their family lived up until 2004. We recently had the pleasure to meet a granddaughter of the Regos who told us the original belfry blew over in a storm. Much to our surprise, the original bell is alive and well in Maine.

When you’re done exploring inside, take a walk around the five-acre grounds where you will find meandering streams and a path through the woods. After you are done strolling the grounds, amble a short five minute walk north to visit the heart of Historic Tiverton Four Corners, a quaint three-hundred year old cross-roads village. There you will find unique shops, restaurants, Gray’s Ice Cream shop, an Arts Center, Art Galleries, and many other establishments. If you plan on cooking, be sure to visit our neighbor across the street at his roadside stand for some tender, sweet, fresh-picked corn.

Sakonnet Farm & Stay’s Cleaning Protocol

During the COVID19 Pandemic, we have modified our cleaning guidelines to include even more vigorous sanitization and disinfection practices. Kristin is a Registered Nurse with a Bachelor of Science in Nursing. She has assisted in keeping her surgical office open during this pandemic, keeping her staff and patients safe and healthy.

We have just a couple of us that perform all our cleaning. We have discussed not cleaning if we are not feeling well ourselves, proper use of PPE, proper use of all chemicals, and disposing of all trash, cleaning supplies and biohazards appropriately.

Cleaning is defined by the CDC as “the removal of germs, dirt, and impurities from surfaces. It does not kill germs, but by removing them, it lowers their numbers and the risk of spreading infection.” Disinfection is defined by the CDC as “a process that eliminates many or all pathogenic microorganisms.” Sterilization is defined by the CDC as “a process that destroys or eliminates all forms of microbial life” - so this would be appropriate in health care facilities, not in homes.

We have changed our cleaning products to use products listed on the EPA’s list that are effective to this COVID virus. We are using these chemicals to clean and disinfect as per the directions on the individual chemicals. We are paying close attention to high touch surfaces.

All bedding will be changed between guests. It will be laundered at the highest recommended temperature before being returned to the home.

Virus particles do not live long on soft surfaces such as upholstery. Viruses in general do not live long on any surfaces that are porous, with holes or microscopic grooves.

We take great pride in offering a clean and safe home for our guests. Even more so now in these uncertain times, we want our guests to feel comfortable when staying at a Sakonnet Farm & Stays property.

Adam & Kristin, with our four kids, are pleased to be offering a variety of homes for vacation rental in the Tiverton and Little Compton area. We moved to Little Compton in 2002 because we wanted to raise our family in this quiet rural town. It was one of the best decisions of our lives! In 2009 we bought the farm and about a year later bought the Schoolhouse. It was after the purchase and a complete remodel we learned about vacation rental homes and we thought we'd give it a shot. We immediately fell in love with the idea and not a year later, bought another fixer upper in our town of Little Compton. We were blessed with many wonderful guests and because of that, we were able to purchase the Samuel Church Estate in 2016, and the John Dyer Loft in 2019. In 2020 Kristin was able to obtain her real estate license and now We have now started to manage properties and have other beautiful large homes in Little Compton also available. We've also been able to travel and enjoy using Airbnb to find wonderful unique places to stay. Our extended family traveled in Europe staying in the most unique places thanks to Airbnb. We've been able to meet some wonderful people, which just adds to the vacation and Airbnb experience.
