We enjoyed the Whistle Stop very much. It is amazing how they transformed these old Railroad cars back to their original grandeur. We felt like we were transported back in time. Although the accommodations are spectacular, New York Mills is a small town. We would suggest you consider dinner before you arrive.

We had a wonderful time last year for our wedding anniversary (the welcome message and marriage advice were hilarious) and the chocolate dipped strawberries just the perfect touch- We stayed in the house because some wedding was going on and all the carts were full, the bed was a fairy tale four poster canopy bed- during breakfast we got a...

My wife and I stayed here and loved it. The entire experience was outstanding. This is a railroad themed place though and the tracks are close by so if you're awoken easily you might want to bring ear plugs. Didn't bother us though. The train cars are very elegant and relaxing. We stayed in the Palace Car and it was... More

It is absolutely unfathomable the amount of time, labor, creativity, and money that went in this lovely B&B. We've been here twice now. We've stayed at several B&Bs and this is by far our favorite. Each car is unique in its own right. The detail in each corner and ledge is superb. We played bocce ball in the spacious yard... More

I have wanted to check this B&B out for quite some time and finally got the opportunity. My husband and I stayed in the Imperial car and it was stunning. The owners and staff were wonderful to work with and the breakfast was fabulous. I can't say enough good things about this place. I can't wait to go back. Connie... More

I think we stayed in 2012- 2013. We girls always make the plans for trips, but this time the boys planned everything. We stayed here and each had a car. Hubby and I were in the caboose. Very delightful! We will make another trip as soon as we decide to head that direction again. Our hostess was so sweet and... More

This is our second time staying at the Whistle Stop B&B! This time we were in the Imperial Car. What a lovely and romantic place to be. I like relaxing you feel when you walk into the car. I so enjoyed the glass of wine and reading in front of the fireplace. The innkeepers are sharing a wonderful piece of... More

We celebrated our 25th wedding anniversary in the Viking car. It was a very unique evening as we relaxed and enjoyed the ambience and each others company. Very romantic as we snuggled under homemade shawls, listened to soft music and experienced a sauna. The sound of the trains was almost soothing as they rumbled by every few minutes. Not as... More

The WS B&B exceeded our expectations! If you're a train enthusiast, you must make a reservation! The innkeeper and server are very kind, friendly women that made us feel right at home and gave us absolute privacy. Breakfast was delicious and plentiful. We stayed two nights in the Palace car and it was spectacular! The car is decorated with period... More
