George and Abe Invite You to Spend the Weekend with Them...

Presidents' Day Weekend, that is.  February 21st is Presidents' Day.  We have availability for a last minute get-away on Friday, Saturday and Sunday nights.  If you're a lucky employee who has Monday off, consider a School House B+B getaway on Sunday night, February 20th.  All the shops in Rocheport are open 12-5 pm, the Les Bourgeois Bistro is open for lunch 11am-3pm and Abigail's Restaurant is open for dinner on Sunday evening by reservation.

And Thomas Jefferson is 'hanging' around here, too!

Katy Trail Bridge Replacement

MoDOT has begun work to replace the Katy Trail bridge on the east side of the Rocheport tunnel and expects to complete the project in May.  There will be a 4 mile detour onto State Hwy 40 and the Hwy240 Spur that comes into Rocheport from the north. 

As a courtesy to School House guests, if you do not want to ride on the highway detour, we can provide a shuttle for you and your bike from the Davisdale Conversation Area parking lot to Rocheport or vice versa.  Please let us know when booking if you wish to take advantage of our shuttle service and if so which direction (east or west) you are traveling.  In our response to your reservation we will provide contact information for pick up time arrangements on the day of your arrival at the School House.

A Winter Wonderland in Rocheport

We had at least 18" of snow here on February 1st turning the town into a winter wonderland! Cross-country skiing on the Katy Trail anyone?
