We've stayed here a couple of times and I can honestly say that it's our favorite bed and breakfast of those we've stayed in across the U.S. Why? Well, you get your choice of a number of beautifully furnished railroad cars. The ambiance is historic, romantic even. It puts you back in time. You feel like you are in another... More

We have stayed at a couple dozen B&B's from Ipswich, MA to Victoria, BC to San Diego to St. Augustine, and this is the most unique and one of the very best. We have stayed at the Whistle Stop many times over the years, since New York Mills is my home town. But this time was unique because his family... More

My husband & I stay here once a year around Thanksgiving. It is one of our favorite places in MN to stay. Jann & Lori are so friendly & accommodating. We typically stay in the Viking car & it's just wonderful. Fun antiques & decor. Even though we've stayed there for the last 4 years or so, we always find... More

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
