How exciting to say you stayed in the Yankee Clipper, which was featured in the July 2019 Issue of Bus Conversion Magazine!! Come and experience a uniquely different stay in our 2001 Thomas School Bus that has been converted into a fully functional living quarters; now considered a Motorhome. We converted her 100% ourselves & thought that while she's sitting in the yard we should share this unique experience with 'You'!

Enjoy outside your morning coffee or BBQing at night on our brand new deck with a campfire area to roast marshmallows over, as you enjoy the aroma of fresh honeysuckle in the air.

The Yankee Clipper runs off solar but during the hot months she is hooked up to electric so you can run air conditioning. She has on-board water storage tanks and a 6 gal hot water heater to shower, wash clothes and dishes.

Enjoy the comfort sitting on a couch and two chairs watching tv or just enjoying the peace and calmness, listening for the hoot owl off in the distance, enjoying our country living surroundings

You will have a most comfortable sleep on our king size memory foam bed.  A 3rd guest has room to sleep on the couch or we have a twin air mattress.

There's a ROKU TV on board with WiFi access and DVD players as well. You will always find fresh clean linen, towels & wash cloths.

How wonderful it will be to actually being able to make a real full pot of coffee or tea in the morning on a vintage 1956 stove w/ vintage coffee / water percolator. 

Think of staying a few days without having to leave to find a restaurant- we have a full size RV refrigerator, french door style. Enjoy cooking inside or BBQing outside in the fresh country air. Plates, bowls, cup and utensils, pots & pans are all provided.

You will have a firepit (firewood usually available unless there is a high fire level) and grill available to use. Otherwise please bare with us during our growing pains to provide you a more wonderful experience.

NOTE - - - - No Cannabis / Marijuana (EVEN IF FOR MEDICAL CONDITION.) or any other illegal noncontroled substance / drugs are STRICTLY Prohibited! YOU WILL BE TOLD TO LEAVE IMMEDIATELY!, NO REFUND ETC.

We live just outside City Limits on 4 acres of open grassy land. At night you can see so many stars on a nice clear, dark night. You might be lucky enough to see the 8-10 deer that roam through our property in the late evening.

You will find we are well centrally located:

15 mins west off Hwy 67 on Hwy 60 West

We had a great time at the YANKEE Clipper! Doug and Cindy were great and we loved their dogs. They were very friendly with us and our pup. The surrounding town and state parks were great for hiking and sight seeing. We are looking forward to visiting again!

I will start at the very beginning with the very 1st message sent to me after i made the reservation. It was TOP NOTCH communication from the very beginning. With the 1st welcome message and then every question I had answered very quick and prompt. Then came the day of our arrival and they were outside waiting for us!!!!! They were sooooooo very kind and friendly from the minute we got on their property to the last goodbyes. The accomodations themselves was BEYOND our expectations. It was my son's dream come true to stay on a school bus and this one was THE coolest bus any of else have been on. The bus was very clean, well kept and had EVERYTHING we needed plus more. Both Cindy and Doug were very helpful in giving us ideas of our daily plans, helpful to us when we got in for the night and making sure we had everything we needed while still giving us privacy to enjoy our adventure. On our last morning there while packing up every one of our three kiddos lamented about having to leave and made sure I looked to see if we could book it again. On numerous occasions our son said, "best vacation ever"!!!!!. If its not obvious in my review we HIGHLY recommend these hosts and the accomodations as well. We will DEFINITELY be back!!!!!!!!
