We had another great stay at Riley's Railhouse. It's just a wonderful place to relax, watch the trains go by, chat with the owners, and play with the Railhouse dogs. This B&B is impeccably decorated, the rooms are nice, the breakfasts are delicious, and it's walking distance to several nice restaurants, which is handy. We're looking forward to our next... More

A truly remarkable experience and a highlight of our summer travels! Our hosts were very special and obviously love "railroading" and people!!! Still have memories of hearing the trains going through the small town! Rooms were large, very well furnished, very clean and the bed was soooo comfortable. They are adding rail cars and will be anxious to return .... More

My family thought this was a great place to visit and watch all the trains go by each day and night!!! My younger son especially enjoyed the upper berth deck from which he had sort of an aerial view of the trains that passed by every 20 minutes or so. The breakfast that owner Richard Riley makes each morning was... More

We had the opportunity to stay in this unique bed and breakfast for 3 nights, and will definitely be back. Hosts Richard and Ann Marie were such gracious hosts...friendly and warm. Together they designed and oversaw construction on this wonderful renovation - bringing the historic freight depot well beyond its original charm right on into fun and comfort. They made... More

We stayed one night, and look forward to visiting again and staying longer. We stayed in the upper berth with our 8 year-old son...he was thrilled with the room and the loft area, and we loved it, too! Richard and Ann Marie were fantastic hosts, and we really enjoyed the little town of Chesterton. We will be sure to return!

We just got back from our second stay at Riley's Railhouse and enjoyed it very much. Richard & Ann Marie are wonderful host and excellent cooks, the French toast is delicious. The rooms are very comfortable and cozy. The B&B is in a renovated old train station. Trains do go by pretty often but you are provided earplugs if the... More

My family of four spent one night at Riley's Railhouse in the middle of August. We were driving from Chicago to Grand Rapids, MI and I was having a hard time finding a decent hotel halfway. After I found it online and read all of the wonderful reviews, I was excited for our night at the Railhouse. We arrived around... More

Not only are they fantastic hosts and great conversationalists, Richard and Ann Marie have curated an amazing space inside an old rail station. The attention to detail is incredible: your eye will always land on something interesting that is set in exactly the right place. The accommodations are very comfortable, and even though the trains pass right outside you can... More

I found this bed & breakfast on Trip Advisor. I thought it might be worth it to try out because it was an old train station. I thought our kids would like that. I was wrong. They LOVED it, and it was probably the best part of our whole trip. The bed & breakfast is converted from an old train... More

This place is absolutely one-of-a-kind. The owners, Richard and Ann Marie, are wonderful, welcoming people who made our family feel very comfortable. The two dogs, Chloe & Jackson, are good dogs. The old train depot is beautifully rebuilt with a lounge that's a great place to hang out and decorated with train memorabilia that takes days to explore thoroughly. Breakfasts,... More
