Chapter Retreat

5 on August 25, 2016

The property was in immaculate condition and ideal for our rooming and meeting space needs. All accommodations were unique and had character. Prose or Teacher's Pet is where you want to be! The food offerings were fresh and delicious. See you next year...

Oct '15 Katy ride brought us here

4.8 on February 09, 2016

The School House B&B was awesome! We loved that it had been repurposed to a B&B but kept some nice touches from the past like real chalkboards, bells, Dick & Jane art. The Poetry room was fantastic (with poetry books!), robes, Q tips, beautiful décor, comfy bed, wine and opener, a shed for bikes with a compressor, nice outdoor seating, hearty breakfast. We even did our laundry. We loved this place and highly recommend it. Our Katy ride -

Overnight Stay After Riding the Katy

4.8 on September 13, 2014

My husband and I stayed at the Schoolhouse B&B after a long ride on the Katy Trail. We were welcomed by Mike who was very accommodating. The Schoolmarm room as great and very comfortable. The breakfast in the morning was perfect and carried us through a very hot day and a rainy afternoon on the trail. Thanks for everything. We will definitely be back to visit!

Bicycling the Katy Trail...dormitory stay

5 on May 22, 2014

Mike and Lisa have thought of everything! Beautiful, clean spectacular accommodations for bicyclists. We wanted to depart to hit the trail at 7:00am. The provisions for self serve breakfast were great. The free laundry in the hallway was a godsend too. Very quite, pleasant and comfortable experience. While in Rocheport, you may also wish to reserve a table at Abigail's for dinner. Just a few blocks away with spectacular fine dining experience in an artsy eclectic venue!

Bicycle heaven!

This is the perfect stay if you are riding bikes on the Katy Trail! The "dormitory" is affordable, easy, and perfect for cyclists. It has at least one room with one set of bunk beds, auto check-in, auto check-out, continental breakfast, and a secure, large shed to store your bicycles. Laundary facilities included (right outside your bedroom door). Come and go anytime with coded door locks.

Amazing Bed and Breakfast

This bed and breakfast is remarkable. The owners have thought of everything! The place is clean, the rooms are beautiful and the food delicious. I can't wait to go back.

Weekend getaway

5 on July 25, 2013

We wanted a weekend getaway to celebrate our 35th wedding anniversary. This was our first time in Rocheport and at a bed and breakfast. The School House was a perfect place to stay-we felt welcomed as soon as we arrived. The room was great-alot of charm and all the ammenties we needed. We took walks along the Katy Trail, explored the shops and restaurants and generally just had a wonderful time. We will definitely return to the School House and recommend it to friends.

Wonderful stay

We were with one other couple for a night on 4th of July. The owners Mike and Lisa were wonderful. Took us up to the winery so we could have dinner there which we recommend. Such a nice night we walked back. We were on the Katy trail riding from Sedalia to Hermann on bikes. Beautiful place. Comfortable beds. We played cards in the breakfast area. Wish we could stay longer. Hope to go there again. One of best B and B we have stayed in.

Great experience

4.6 on July 15, 2013

My sister and I stayed here this past weekend. We enjoyed our stay; the accommodations were very exceptional and squeaky clean. The appointments reflected the era of construction and the rooms were themed for the schoolhouse. We stayed in the "Spelling Bee" room. Rocheport is a beautiful town, but there is not much to do there during the evening. It is right on the Katy Trail. Finding a sandwich after 4 on Saturday was challenging.

Wonderful Stay

I can't think of better place to stay to ride the Katy Trail than School House. The Breakfast was fabulous to start our day. The room and common room was beautiful. We want to come back to enjoy all that Roachport has to offer. Mike and have thought of everything. This was the first time my son had stayed at a Bed & Breakfast and he mentioned why would you stay in a hotel when you could stay at the School House. Thank you for a great start to our vacation.
