If you enjoy GOOD ICE CREAM..be here for whatever flavor you like. This is a happy place for families or being by yourself. Like the Four Seas Ice Cream in Centerville. A real treat...

This seasonal ice cream shop has the best ice cream in town. Many flavors. Big portions. You can eat out on the deck or inside. Family friendly and they stay open late. Don't have dessert in a restaurant - come here for your dessert.

We tried many ice cream places in the area, and Schoolhouse is the best! Portions are huge- even my kids couldn't finish a small. Delicious, smooth, creamy ice cream.

Many choices, very fair prices, open til 10:30 in summer, nice staff. Sit inside or out. Downside is limited parking but you can figure something out. You want ice cream you go HERE. It's that simple... cause it's really good stuff.
