Experience the ultimate glamping adventure in our converted school bus! Nestled on 5 acres of land, the campsite features lush woods and a creek. Enjoy the peace and quiet of nature with the comfort of a home away from home. Whether you are looking to relax and unwind or seeking an outdoor getaway, you’re sure to find it here! Our skoolie is the perfect basecamp for outdoor adventures-30 minutes to Richmond and 5 minutes from the nearest trailhead at Pocahontas State Park with pass included. ——— The space Our fully functional skoolie comes equipped with everything you need for a comfortable stay, but please read the full description of this space and property to make sure this is the right experience for you! Attention Guests: Please note that ticks will be prevalent in wooded areas throughout the state due to the unseasonably warm winter we had last year. According to VCU Dr. Marconi, Virginia is experiencing a “quite extreme” tick season. As the skoolie is located in a wooded area, we are diligent in our efforts to manage them, but we advise all guests to take precautions. It is HIGHLY recommended to treat your dogs for ticks before your stay, and to perform thorough tick checks on yourselves and your pets during your stay with us and whenever you are in the woods. We want all guests to understand the risks before booking and to take necessary measures to protect themselves. *Beds* Comfortable queen-sized bed in the back. The couch folds down into a bed slightly smaller than a full size mattress. We have bedding included for both beds. The bus will sleep 3 comfortably, 4 if you really like each other! *Full Kitchen* Gas stove top inside the bus (back burner knob removed for fire safety). Pots, pans, plates, bowls, utensils, storage containers, and coffee maker/french press are all included. Pantry space to store your food. RV fridge and freezer. Small kitchen sink with hot water and a 7 gallon water tank underneath the sink that you will need to empty if full. *Bus Bathroom* There is a Nature’s Head composting toilet, with instructions included, and please only use the bus bathroom for urinating only. *Main House Full Bathroom* You have access to a full bathroom, shower, and laundry in a side door of the main house. If you prefer convenience over adventure and are not comfortable with a short walk (approximately 150 feet) to use the bathroom facilities, this may not be the ideal booking for you. The owners of the house also use this space for laundry, but it is closed off from the rest of the house to ensure privacy. *Heating/Cooling* Portable A/C unit on bus. A small space heater has been provided that works well to keep the bus warm in winter. Also has a wood burning stove, with firestarters and wood for the stove included. In the winter, it could still be a bit cold on the bus so we encourage you to bring extra blankets and clothing depending on the weather. Maxxair Fan and personal fans for your use are provided. *Outdoors* Includes a deck with a small seating area, picnic table to enjoy your meals, and a portable propane grill for your use. Enjoy a campfire in the private fire ring. There is plenty of firewood to collect in the woods. Look for the gnome and follow the walking trail from the campsite to explore the creek and more of the backyard. *Electricity* While the bus has solar panels and a battery bank to be completely off-grid, it is hooked up to shore power for your convenience. Has 2 USB outlets and a standard wall outlet. Wifi is available with high downloading speeds. *Pets* All pets are welcome! Please keep in mind that there are two dogs on the property contained to the yard by an electric invisible fence. The dogs are not able to access the campsite. We ask that you keep your pup on a leash unless it is well trained and can stay in the campsite area and away from our pets. *Extra Guests* We allow a maximum of 4 guests to stay inside the bus. For a fee, you can have extra guests stay with you in a tent outside. Please let us know before booking if you will be bringing extra guests. ——— Guest access You will need to drive on grass and through the backyard to access the school bus. There is parking right next to the campsite. We will be respectful of your space and privacy, but with that being said we like to grill out and hang out on the back deck pretty often so feel free to come over and chat. ——— Other things to note The interior height of the bus is only 6 feet so please note that it could be a bit cramped for taller individuals.

I really enjoyed walking around the creek trail, as well as firewood ready to go in the pit before I even got there. Chloe gave great in person instructions about the ins and outs about the bus, and there was plenty of helpful written instructions if I forgot. I knew the bus would be in their backyard but it was still quite private. I would definitely come back.

This was such a fun overnight trip for my family! Everyone loved the bus and had fun walking the creek side trail through the woods. After enjoying a hike at Pocahontas State Park, we relaxed, had dinner, built a fire, and played cards under the string lights. We all slept well and were really pleased at how comfortable (and functional) everything was!

The area is serene and quiet. We enjoyed seeing deer unfazed by us. The creek is beautiful

Loved the Creekside Schoolbus
We had an absolutely spectacular experience at the Creekside Schoolbus! It was a celebration for my wife’s birthday and we had plenty of space for kids and cookout. Hosts were wonderful and the property is a real gem tucked down behind their backyard. The bus converted to camper was clean, comfortable and was a pleasure to stay in. We hope to enjoy this site again next year.

What a great experience! The hosts are very welcoming and attentive. There was communication from the moment the reservation was placed. They have set up a great relax spot and the kids loved the trails with the gnomes! The bus was awesome, and had everything you need stocked and ready. This was more of glamping than what I'm used to, but A great time! They have thought of entering everything to make your stay as comfortable, inviting and stress free as possible! Kudos to you all on your hard work, thank you for sharing the skoolie with us!
