Step back into another world and time and unwind with your family and friends or slip into a romantic weekend in this recently restored historic home in the heart of Zoar Village, a National Historic Landmark. The Schoolmaster's House was built in 1881 for the Village Schoolmaster. The home has been lovingly restored to share with guests looking for a peaceful retreat or as a base when exploring Zoar Village, Amish Country and nearby Atwood Lake.

The space
The historic Schoolmaster’s House retains many of the original features of the home, including exposed wood beams in the kitchen and exposed brick chimneys throughout, while offering modern conveniences such as a completely renovated main bath with jetted tub. The home is approximately 1900 square feet and boasts 3 bedrooms, 1.5 baths, and a back screened-in porch for your morning coffee or evening glass of wine.

The first level greets guests with a comfortable living space that includes an electric fireplace with heat for added ambiance and warmth in the cooler seasons. There is an antique checker/game table and game chest with a selection of games for all ages. A record player with a small vinyl selection helps take you back to another time. If you prefer more modern conveniences, there is a 43” inch smart television that includes complimentary Netflix, no cable. WIFI throughout the home. Each floor of the home has smart speakers. The living room can be closed off by doors for privacy for guests using the Queen pull-out sofa.

The dining room includes a custom Amish-made dining table that can comfortably seat up to six (6), with additional space for two more. There is a wine bar with all the basic essentials for an evening nightcap after exploring the area. The kitchen has original hardwood floors and exposed wood beams while offering the modern conveniences of new cabinets, quartz countertops, gas stove, and refrigerator. There is a kitchen banquette that seats up to four (4) and can be doubled as a workspace. The kitchen island provides additional seating for two (2). A custom Amish-made coffee bar includes Keurig coffeemaker, latte/cappuccino maker, a regular coffee pot, and electric tea kettle.

Off the kitchen is a screened-in back porch with two rocking chairs and a loveseat to enjoy a quiet morning coffee, read a book, or unwind with a glass of wine. The front porch offers a porch swing where you can enjoy the Zoar Schoolhouse across the street or catch an Amish buggy passing by.

The second level has three bedrooms and the main bathroom. The main bedroom has a comfortable king-size four poster bed and electric fireplace. The second bedroom offers a Queen size bed and make-up vanity. The third bedroom was appointed with children in mind and includes a daybed with a trundle and small play area, complete with two historical American Girl Dolls and accessories (Kristen and Addie), play barn, wooden train set, play table, handmade historical dress-up clothes, and other vintage toys and books.
