School Bus vacation rental, Shepherdstown, WV

Cozy School Bus in Historic West Virginia

Clean, comfortable and secluded in the picturesque Shenandoah Valley, this bus offers an offbeat and affordable all-season stopover spot.

  • Location: You’ll find the Cozy School Bus 80 miles west of Baltimore in the small town of Shepherdstown, WV, nestled behind a grove of trees in a semi-wooded area. It is a four-minute drive from downtown Shepherdsville, and a 15-minute drive from Harpers Ferry, known for its national historical park, 19th-century buildings, a Civil War museum, and history galore.
  • Amenities: One double bed; a couch may sleep one additional person; heating and air conditioning; bathroom in private area of adjoining owner’s house; kitchen in owner’s house available upon request.
  • Tripsy Gypsy’s Musings: The refurbished 1973 school bus is located a 30-second walk from the property owner’s house, yet upon arrival I had difficulty initially finding it. That goes to show the seclusion and privacy of the area. I was greeted with fresh wildflowers and a personalized welcome sign. It was the middle of the summer but the air conditioning was cooling the bus perfectly. The bed was feather-soft, and the added hippie touches were amusing and delightful. There is a small deck off the bus with two chairs and a charcoal grill, and they have since added a firepit (with wood provided) for your outdoor evening enjoyment. There is a functioning wood stove inside the bus for the winter months, but the heater can be used to warm the space sufficiently without it. It is a 30-second walk to your private bathroom in a closed-off section of the main house. The bath facilities were very clean and well-stocked, and the path is very well lit at night. I was traveling as a single woman, and it felt very safe. It was fun to explore the homestead property, as it’s a wild outdoor expanse of greenery with a treehouse (which can also be rented out) and very friendly dogs. Shepherdstown is small but has fun dining and shopping options.
