We stopped in for a quick lunch and the place was so nice we came back for dinner. Charming and immaculately clean. Service very friendly and quick. Food was good and prices very good. Would certainly come back again and bring friends to see the decor. Stuffed mounts of dozens of animal all over in animated poses, very amusing. All... More

Schoolhouse Inn is cute and must say very clean. Booked the suite for the night, which for $50 extra gave me a 2 person jacuzzi and a steam sauna (ended up not using either grrrr). Beautiful wood floors and tile. Bathroom had a huge 2 person, 2 shower head shower, double sink and still plenty of room for 5 more... More

I was immediately impressed by the old world charm of the outside of the buildings both for the main house and the building just to the left that contained the rooms that we stayed in. The structures kept their style but with modern building materials. Dinner was wonderful and happy hour was the most generous that we have ever seen... More

Traveled to Downsville just to eat at the Old Schoolhouse. Had not been in awhile and we were not disappointed. Ordered the prime rib with mashed potatoes, salad bar (with peel your own shrimp) was included. Great food. We also enjoy the rustic atmosphere.

If you don't like a beautifully decorated, immaculately clean, comfortable and quiet Inn with a great air conditioner (nice and cold, remotely controlled and not hanging out of a window), great flat screen television, beautiful fixtures, fantastic shower pressure, great bathroom lighting, in room refrigerator (disguised as a set of drawers), in a newly remodeled building covered in rich hard...

The old schoolhouse inn has been around since the turn of the century and serves delicious burgers and natural grass-fed Texas longhorn beef. They use locally sourced produce that really adds to the freshness of the food.

Stopped by for one of their famous burgers! Each burger comes with breadsticks, shaped like antlers sticking out top of bun, quite a touch! Julie, the owner, is always there, with a smile for all!. Great place for families! Get bar to watch a game. She has an elegant inn next door, where we have stayed previously. The best place... More

A few of us had eaten here 3 previous times and thought the food and atmosphere was good, so we decided to bring a group of 16 of our friends down from Syracuse on the motorcycles for lunch. We were sadly DISAPPOINTED in the food and service. Out of 16 orders 7 were wrong. 1 of those 7 was wrong... More
