Great location

Center School B&B and Museum serves two main purposes; a country school museum on the main floor, and a comfy B&B complete with amenities in the basement level. (A variety of breakast choices, hot and cold, will always be provided.) It doesn't have air conditioning, because basement lodging stays warm in the winter and cool in the summer. A cozy, quiet place that guests will have all to themselves - nestled in the residential area of a friendly rural community that has a lot to offer.

Very nice little space under an old school. Mini-museum upstairs is a near experience. Tons of breakfast options. Really enjoyed our stay.

What a cool place! This was a total unexpected gem on the way home from a Colorado trip. Berni is very communicative and check in was a breeze, very clean and the place has everything you need including books and movies of the Wild West to get you in the frontier town spirit…

Berni’s school house is great. The BnB is very roomy, has all the amenities and a great selection of breakfast items. You must see what she had done with the one room school (Website hidden by Airbnb) is amazing! Put Arnold on your itinerary.

This is the first time we drove through Arnold. It was a small, quiet town surrounded by beautiful Sandhills. My husband and I really enjoyed our stay. We were impressed by Berni's thoughtful touch and her passion for teaching. The breakfast was left in the fridge, and it was…

Yumiko, I'm glad you enjoyed the books. (I probably should put a few more down there.) I love Nebraska history and especially enjoy reading about our Native Americans. I did the BRAN ride in 2017 and was thrilled when we got to stay on Sacred Ground at Winnebago. The Bicycle…

Berni was very responsive. The Airbnb was as just as described with nice touches throughout. We didn’t get to see the school bc of late arrival but the info in the space was very informative. A lovely spot and perfect for our overnight needs.
