We thoroughly enjoyed our stay! We did a whirlwind east coast trip with a 5 year old and 10 month old for a wedding. Looking for adventure for the 5 yo we booked in here at the end of our trip. GREAT DECISION! We all loved it. If you are looking for rest fullness and peace, go to the Best... More

Lovely stay and the owner and staff are extremely helpful with nothing being too much trouble. The unique rooms heighten to experience. We ate in the dining car every meal and enjoyed it. I especially enjoyed the beer from the local brewery. If I'm every in Nova Scotia again I will definitely come back here.

This was an amazing place to stay. Kids love it because not only can you see all the railway cars you can even stay in one! The owner Jimmy was very helpful and nothing was a problem. The food in the Dining car was excellent and the lounge carriage was like stepping into the past. The old station has been... More

We arrived on Sunday October 12 mid afternoon. Check in was quite easy. The lady in the gift shop said our Box Car (#6) was already heated up and the key in the room. We made dinner reservations at the dining car and within 5 minutes of arriving we were inside our room. The entire property is quite nice, lots... More

A friend and I love to travel by train, so when we heard about the Train Station Inn in Tatamagouche we booked a dinner and an overnight. This is a real train with engine, train cars, dining car and cabooses. Everything, even the baggage cart, makes one feel as if we have stepped back in time. From the minute we... More

We stayed in one of the caboose's, very small but unique. Had dinner in the dining car. Not very impressed. My husband and I had the seafood chowder which was a mistake. There was no flavor of seafood and it tasted like it was soaked in fresh water for a week. Absolutely awful We also had the Tai Chicken Wrap... More

You don’t have to be a railway buff or trainspotter to go here, but such a passion would certainly be rewarded. Now in its 25th year of operation, this inn is a joy to visit for its uniqueness. Cabooses of various vintages and freight cars have been added over the years and turned into “sleepers”. The food itself is delicious... More

I found out about the Train Station Inn while I was watching The Week the Women Went. Since then we have always wanted to visit. This was the year and we weren't disappointed. My sister and I surprised our mom for her birthday with a trip to Tatamagouche (Aug.2/14) and a night at the Train Station Inn. We stayed in... More

Train station inn lives up to the name. With the station master busy situating people with rooms and seating others in the dining car, he was full of rich history and stories. The food was amazing and the train car was an amazing stay. Recommend over and over.

We found out about this place from some fellow travelers. My son is obsessed with trains so we thought we'd stop in. It was a cute and charming experience to eat in the dining car. The food was good and the service was lovely. No complaints and it left my son smiling from ear to ear!
