Grandma's Place (Schoolhouse Hotels) (Nǎinaijiā) Review

This two-bedroom rental cottage is part of a project by Jim Spears, a long-term resident of Mutianyu, called Schoolhouse Hotels, which offers gorgeous self-catering stays in remote villages around the Great Wall; Grandma's Place is the pick of the bunch, created using stones salvaged from Ming and Qing Dynasty structures, as well as massive beams from an old village house, featuring a cosy, traditional kang—a brick bed heated from beneath—and a very private fruit garden and terrace that provides jaw-dropping views of the Great Wall. There are two bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms, wireless broadband, a kitchen, and laundry facilities.
