COVID-19 Update (Updated March 1, 2022 Re: COVID-19 Proof-of-Vaccination System)


School House Bed and Breakfast is a home business. As we open our doors to welome our guests, the health and safety of our guests, staff as well as our family members remain to be a high prioroty. Therefore we continue to ask our guests to show their proof of vaccination upon entry after March 1, 2022. Regrettably, guests unable to show their proof of vaccination on the day of arrival will be denied entry and may not receive a refund. Individuals who cannot receive the vaccine due to medical exemptions will be permitted entry with an official note from a healthcare professional.


If you have any questions or concerns, please don't hesitate to contact us.
