Check out this quirky-sweet B&B in Bisbee, Arizona.
Bisbee is a quirky place to begin with, being an old mining town in the desert southwest. But imagine stumbling across this unusual gem in your travels!
House Crazy Sarah loves old schools converted to living spaces and this one does not disappoint.
From the kids’ art on the walls, to the array of antique furnishing, The School House Inn is brimming with whimsy and history.
Originally the Garfield School dating back to 1917, the building now houses 10 bedrooms and 13 bathrooms plus an Owner’s Suite.
The former classrooms have been turned into suites which all feature 12-foot ceilings & private baths.
This unique find is currently listed for sale for $899,000.
That’s a steep price but you are buying a place with over 8,000 finished square feet and a variety of potential uses.
Plus, the listing states that “all furnishings/decor/bedding stays”, so you are getting a lot for your money here.
The decor is decidedly kitschy with some vintage touches. It has that grandma’s house feel to it.
But what a creative use of the space!
The building also features a large kitchen (not pictured) and a public dining room that opens onto an oak-shaded patio.
How charming is this place?
If you’ve got the cash and the gumption to move to Bisbee, Arizona, then this would be such a fun place to have!
Thanks for sharing this intriguing B & B in a colorful city!
I stayed there. It’s fantastic!
No way! That’s awesome Terri!!!
