The Old Albion Schoolhouse


Property Details

Updated: Sep 9, 2014
House, 3 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, 8 Sleeps

The Old Albion Schoolhouse served as a school for the town of Albion from 1924- 1966. In 1998, legendary record producer, Bill Bottrell renovated it into a luxurious home. Bottrell used the library as his recording studio at one point and artists such as Sheryl Crow, Shelby Lynne, Seal, and Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers recorded in there. The property is like a private resort. Set on the beautiful Mendocino Coast, this house is not just a place to stay, it's an experience. Just ten minutes south of the town of Mendocino and 300 ft from the Albion River, the activities to do in the house inside and outside are endless. We offer a wide list of concierge services for our guests.

Book your stay at the Albion Schoolhouse and let us take care of your needs. Come engulf yourself in history, beauty, and rustic elegance. We will make you feel like a part of our community. Your trip will be unforgettable.

Wild Woman,s Weekend

30 years ago our girl friends started getting together, some of us go back
to early grammar school, we have been to many places, but the Old School
House was hands down the most prefect. 9 women need their space and the School
House has it, huge bedrooms with giant bathrooms, fit the bill!! The kitchen/
dining room was outstanding, plenty of everything we needed with a view to
die for. The music room with the stage gave us all a chance to ham it up, what a blast. It's location is a stone's throw to everything, however, we found
ourselves not wanting to leave for to long. I would say to anyone with a group/
large family, this place is for you. I'll be coming back!!

A Beautiful and Enlightening Experience

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I stayed here for a week several months ago. I can't overstate what an amazing experience it was. Situated on a small hill just above the tiny coastal village of Albion, this former schoolhouse is spacious and equipped with every luxury while remaining a paragon of exquisite taste and restraint. It is furnished in a Japanese-inspired, Zen-like style, with beautiful copper and untouched virgin wood, giant windows to look out over nature, and a sense of space and beauty in every room. It is very large - the master bedroom is the size of a small house - and so quiet that at night you hear nothing but your own breathing balanced with the sound of the sea. The Schoolhouse is equipped with every modern amenity while retaining a sense of rustic charm, and that subtle Japanese flavor that emanates peace, balance and beauty. I highly recommend this place to anyone and everyone.
