School is probably the last thing on your mind in the middle of June. But this converted elementary school Airbnb near Toronto makes for the perfect summer beach getaway. So, swap out the pencils and books for flip-flops and oversized sun hats and get booking.
Located in Picton, Ontario, roughly 2 hours from Toronto, this converted school is close to the infamous Prine Edward County Wineries and just minutes from Sandbanks Beaches.
The best part? Your stay actually includes a Sandbanks Park pass, which gives you free access to the sandy oasis throughout your stay. The former South Marysburgh Central school was operational from 1960 until 2011.
The exterior screams public school, but inside you’ll find plenty of natural light and clean, modern decor. Amidst that modern decor, you’ll also find a few small callbacks to the school like the in-tact chalkboard and old PA system.
Past visitors rave about the morning coffee and snacks that are provided, as well as the friendly on-site hosts who live in a separate area of the school. Your room comes with a kitchenette, but you have access to the full kitchen located in the old teacher's lounge as well.
The spacious and well-lit school has 1 bathroom and 2 beds, with an extra bed available for rent upon request. If you’re a group of four this unique spot will only cost you $50.00 a night.
