Today the Schoolhouse is definitely growing, now including the neighbouring Brickyard. The Brickyard repeats Spear's theme of luxury and simplicity, this time more geared at individual rooms, rather than the houses for rent at the Schoolyard.

Prices at the Schoolyard start at 2,600 yuan per night for a house suitable for four people. Rooms for two at the Brickyard start at 1,380 yuan per night. Discounts are available.

Getting to the Schoolhouse:

From Dongzhimen station, buses #936 and #916 offer some direct trips to Mutianyu. From Mutianyu, keep to the right, and walk down the smaller road for 10 minutes.

But if your bus stops at Huairou Beidajie, you can hire a car to take you up to the Schoolhouse ("Xiaoyuanr") for 60 yuan, or walk 2 km north up the hill towards Mutianyu Great Wall.
