Yarnold School was first built in 1864 and sits on a small acreage with a distant view of Clinton Lake. This wonderful piece of history was rebuilt in the 1940's after a fire. It was a Roosevelt New Deal W.P.A. project. Thick limestone walls make the inside quiet beyond belief! The inside has been completely redone so you will have modern amenities while enjoying the peace and quiet of the countryside. Lots of windows so you can enjoy this quiet, sun drenched space.

The space
Disconnect and Reconnect! This piece of history offers peace and quiet. If you are craving solitude or a place to disconnect, our stone schoolhouse can provide it. Have your morning coffee at the sunny kitchen booth and gaze at surrounding trees and Clinton Lake in the distance. Enjoy this sun drenched space in one of our comfy chairs including our massage chair! We have a TV that picks up local stations. There is also a DVD player and an extensive DVD collection.
A Verizon wifi jet pack will keep you connected if you need to be.
Our modern kitchen has everything you need if you enjoy cooking or baking.
Vitamix blender for smoothies, Cusinart food processor, Waffle Maker, cookware and an assortment of spices, oil, and Pam Spray. Otherwise, guests provide their own groceries .
Maybe you'd rather read a book, show your coloring talents in one of our adult coloring books, play a board game or one of our outside games including ladder ball & Bocce. Take a walk down our nature trail to see native grasses and wildflowers. You might even spot an eagle soaring overhead! Great couple's getaway or writer's retreat. You'll be amazed at how quiet it is.
We do rent for gatherings and events but due to COVID concerns, are not booking any larger gatherings at this time. We apologize that we're not able to offer that at this time. Please check back in the future!

Guest access
You will have access to the main floor and the outside property where we have a nature trail for you to walk. The kitchen is furnished with everything we can think of for someone who loves to cook or bake. If you have something you are needing- just ask! We probably have it. Laundry is available- please inquire. You can use our supplies if you are doing just one load or doing a load of towels. Otherwise, we ask you to provide your own supplies. The basement is private. Otherwise you have the entire space to yourselves!

Other things to note
Filtered Water - we have two sources of filtered water. One on the refrigerator and one filtered water faucet at the sink.

Wifi - We have a Verizon Jet Pack with unlimited data. However, we've learned that the unlimited data at high speed (4G) is for the first 30gb of use. It then drops to 600Kbps until it resets on the 15th of each month. We apologize for the drop in speed but are limited on our options in the country where we are at. We will continue to check with Verizon as to new options they may offer in the future.

No smoking on the property. Our promise to our guests is a smoke free environment. No judgment but we have returning guests and family who have allergies. The smoke odor also carries into the house on clothing or the air and is difficult to get out. We kindly and respectfully ask you to please respect this house rule.

Registered guests only on property due to liability reasons. No parties. We do rent for meetings and events but they must be preapproved and a signed event contract must be agreed upon. Due to COVID, we are not booking events at this time. Thank you for your understanding. Please check back with us in the future.

Location

Lawrence, Kansas, United States

You will be enjoying the peace and quiet of the country. You travel to our location on hard surfaced road but the last mile is a rural gravel road. Clinton Lake is viewed from a distance to the south and there is a boat ramp access a few miles away. Lawrence is 10 minutes away including Rock Chalk Park, the new west side hospital, restaurants, grocery and shops. Downtown Lawrence on Mass Street is an easy drive on 6th St. KU Campus is 15-20 minutes away.

Hi! I'm Rhonda! Thanks for checking out our Airbnb space! My husband and I have created this space with the hope it feels like "Your Home Away From Home" Our goal is to create a clean, inviting & comfortable place! My heart smiles when a guest tells us that our place provided a relaxing reprieve to gather with family, friends or their work group during their visit to our area! We sincerely hope you feel that way if you choose our place! Randy and I have been married 35 years, love to travel, play tennis and volunteer in animal rescue by fostering dogs. Our best vacation to date would have to be a 10 day trip to Belize where we camped in the jungle, went scuba diving, canoed in underground caves and climbed temples in Tikal. Back then, there was no Airbnb but I bet you could find one now! We love Airbnb for all the adventure it can bring and for the kind and lovely guests it has brought our way.
