We stayed in the Viking car and it was so nice and private. Loved the sauna and the Jacuzzi tub. Had a great anniversary getaway. Could hear the trains go by but after we fell asleep we didn't hear another till we woke up. Was very spacious and will be back to try another car in the future.

We came for tea here. The main house is absolutely lovely! The food was delicious and beautifully presented. The train rooms are exquisitely decorated and very clean. The staff is friendly and welcoming. This place is a must!

Our family loves trains so we were excited to try this B&B! I really appreciate the owner accommodating not only our late arrival, but also our two beautiful younger elementary school age children who absolutely love trains. I knew we were getting a little slice of heaven upon pulling up to the grounds and noticing how beautifully landscaped the open... More

We stayed one night in the caboose. It was indeed an old caboose, cleaned up, painted and decorated with all sorts of railroad memorabilia. It was a bit small, with low overhead clearance, but very comfortable. The bed is a murphy bed, and was very comfortable. Excellent whirlpool bath AND shower, lots of thick towels. Staying here tickled me even... More

We have stayed at the Whistle Stop 5 times now. We have been in 2 of the train cars, the Santa Fe House, the Caboose and recently the Great Northern Railroad suite in the main house. The facilities are always super clean, food very tasty and plentiful and the owner and staff very friendly. Yes you do hear the sounds... More

Lovely historically nostalgic B&B. Stayed in the cozy antique filled Great Northern Room in the beautiful house and am anxious to come back with more family. Very friendly and knowledgeable staff and guests.

We knew when we booked over the phone that we would have a great place to stay (friends had stayed here) but we were stunned by the reality. We were in the Viking Car for a quick get away from 'life'. The check-in was seamless and Jann so nice. From the moment we opened the door to our car we... More

The experience was awesome! Jann and company made the experience the best stay! Would recommend for any type of stay, business, pleasure, family, etc. The refurbished and renovated train cars were fantastic. Close proximity to many places to explore, whether it be shopping, antiquing, trail walking or biking, or in the winter snowmobiling, a definite must stay for a truly... More

My wife and I are not B&B regulars, we have too many kids and rarely get to do something this nice. We were actually treated by some friends to this fabulous weekend. They are B&B experts and have traveled the country and this is by far their favorite. I had heard that we would be staying in renovated railroad cars,... More
