Dunkle Schoolhouse - A Bed and Breakfast Stay


Love historic one-room school buildings?
Ever sit at a double school desk with your best friend?
Did the ‘teacher’s pet’ get to ring the school bell?
Remember ‘McGuffy’ Readers? How about “Dick and Jane”?
Were you chosen to wash the blackboard?
Did you fall asleep in school?


Now you can do all this and more in our restored one-room rural schoolhouse in scenic Vinton County just north of the village of McArthur, Ohio.

Several generations of students learned their “3 R’s” in this early 20th century schoolhouse…reading, ‘riting and ‘rithmetic . Now you can make your own
“3 R’s …rest, relaxation and romance.

Wander down a country road…Linger awhile in an early cemetery…
Amble through a covered bridge…….all without getting into your car!

Nearby are:
• Hocking Hills State. Parks
• Lake Hope State Park
• Zaleski State Forest
• More covered bridges
• The Quilt Barns of Vinton County
• Unique shops and dining
• (The haunted?) Moonville Tunnel and Rail Trail


Take a virtual tour of our cabin!
