The Inn at Schoolhouse Creek

Lilies by the koi pond.

One of the MAMA Project sponsors was the Inn at Schoolhouse Creek, run by Maureen and Steve. They put us up in a fully wheelchair-equipped cabin (ramp, accessible bathroom with shower seat, etc), that had one king-sized bed with a sumptuous mattress, and a day-bed with an extra trundle bed to pull out. We were a bit in heaven! A gas fireplace kept us warm despite the unfortunate chilly weather, and for extra heat we all got in the giant jacuzzi tub in the cabin and had a soak. The Inn, a collection of cottages, is nestled among quite a few large cypress trees, just a short distance from the ocean.

Note the disappointment on the left. She returned the deed on her next turn.

Outdoor amenities include a hot tub, hammocks, a giant chess set, and pooch-parking for guests whose companions would like to be close-by during meals. They feed the birds every morning during breakfast, for guests' entertainment. And breakfast was really great. It consisted of self-serve baked goods, toast, cereals, etc. and options for various delicious hot meals (omelets, french toast, pancakes, fritatta, etc.) from the kitchen. They also made an effort to cater to our children's allergies. Options to bring breakfast back to the cabin or for dinner, later, are also available.

We didn't have our dear Hazel with us to make use of the pooch parking, but we saw another dog waiting patiently there during one of our breakfasts.
