Life's about choices! The Guesthouse on Schoolhouse Lake will offer you plenty of choices. It's great for work or play. A Sleep Number Bed or a bed in the Front Room watching the moon rise over the lake. Plan a meal for 2 or cookout with friends. Explore the lakes or fish from the shore.

Having been in the hospitality business most of my life, I knew exactly what the Guesthouse on Schoolhouse had to offer. First it had to be clean. Like really clean. 2nd, it had to offer options. Because it doesn't matter how good a cup of tea is, if you don't drink tea, well... 3rd. It had to be as nice as home or better. No hand-me-downs! 4th. It had to offer and then be easy to find, all those "things" you forgot or suddenly need when you're away from home. And last but not at all least, it must be inspiring. The view of the lake will stir in you a desire to go exploring. The sound of the jets from the saltwater HOT TUB calls you for a simple, refreshing dip. The incline beds are sure to be the coziest, fall asleep while being mesmerized by the water, place ever!

Interaction with guests
The Guesthouse on Schoolhouse is 100 feet from our family home. You'll have a private entry code which will allow you to come and go as you please. Look at the Guesthouse as your residence while you're the guest. No one will come over unannounced. Both my husband Rick and I enjoy sharing stories and welcome your company, if you wish. Yet, if you find there's assistance you or have any concerns, I'm close by.
Other things to note
The Guesthouse is a one level home yet there are at least two steps to enter and there are four steps that lead you to the laundry area. The house is located on a major thoroughfare and although there is a 6 foot fence with bushes and trees and we find it nearly inaudible inside the house, road noise happens. The spring fed lake is 4.5 feet deep at the end of the dock so NO Diving. You can walk a ways before it's over 5 foot. Yet the center of the lake is 60 feet. Unfortunately, little zebra muscles attach themselves to rocks in the lake, water shoes are recommended. Please bring your own proper fitting life jackets but if you forget we have a boatload of them.
We welcome all children of all ages. We are blessed that our 2 boys grew up on this beautiful property without incident. However, Airbnb urges me to remind you that the Guesthouse on Schoolhouse sits within 15 feet of the lakes shore. There is a set of 5 steps indoors, some tables low have right angles, the main floor is tile and there is a gas fireplace. Waton Blvd., which is 40 mph road, sits 25 feet beyond the yard's fence. We do not carry any equipment for a babies needs. Such as a highchair or crib. I do have games, books and a few assorted toys. If you have any questions or concerns please feel free to ask.
- No wet clothes or towels on any indoor furniture.
- Hot Tub Rules: It is very important that you do not go from being in the lake and then into the hot tub.you may mot wear a bathing suit that was in the lake into the hot tub. You must shower with soap after being in the lake water and wear a bathing suit that has not been or wash the suit thoroughly with soap& water before wearing it in the hot tub.
Always remember to a secure all four latches on the cover to the hot tub after use.
- Although we don't have houses near by, know that sound travels over the water very clearly. Please have your noise level to a minimum at 10 pm weekday and 11 pm weekends.
- Life Jackets are very important when your enjoying the water. Please remember to bring yours.
