Great stop along the way! Our son was thrilled to stay in a caboose and we were pleasantly surprised. Not the biggest room but fun and very comfortable. Our service as great. We will definitely return.

Really unusual accommodation in a converted caboose. Quirky, and delightful. Dinner in Dining car was great, as were the staff. A wonderful experience! Don't expect lots of space (the cars are only the width of a train, of course). Enjoy climbing up to the caboose viewing area, and even pretend you are a train driver.....

Thought our grandkids would love this idea. It was a surprise. We did not get the wow factor we thought we might get. We had Caboose #4, two bunks and a queen bed. The kids wound up sleeping together on the lower bunk, not sure why. It was worth trying once. Had dinner in the dining car which was pretty... More

My wife and I recently stayed here.We were on a bit of a budget so we had booked "Boxcar Jimmy".In my opinion,this accomadation is not suited to 2 adults,especially those that pack enough clothes and toiletries to stay comfortable.In other words,this room was very small and I found it un-comfortable due to its size.And while it is advertised as having...

We were visiting with relatives in Brule, NS and decided to go out for dinner. Both adults and kids thought the meal was outstanding. After dinner we were able to tour one of the many old caboose and baggage cars they use for accommodation. The owners were even able to provide the provenance of the dining car, the governor general's... More

Kids will love it. Book in advance for the peak times and arrive on time. The area has a nice trail, a creamery and a few beaches - Rushtons provincial park, Malagash(Blue sea provincial park) - the water is warm when compared to the Atlantic shore of Nova Scotia. Also, there are a few museums, a sheep farm and a... More

Our family has stayed at the Train Station Inn several times throughout the years and we have always very much enjoyed our stay, the inn is certainly rustic and makes you feel almost as if you're sitting right at the station awaiting your train. We visit the restaurant every year as well, which is built inside of the old dining... More

We have a cottage in the area , but went for dinner. It was excellent, great atmosphere, you can imagine the train travelling across the country with you in the dining car. The seafood linguine was the best ever, the service was excellent, and the homemade applecake was delicious. A unique atmosphere, and good dining experience

We saw an ad for this little spot in the NS Summerscapes calendar and although it wasn't really on our vacation route we went out of our way to check it out! Although there was very little else drawing us to Tatamagouche, we weren't disapointed with our journey! As soon as we pulled up we were pleased with the unique... More

Upon arriving at the Train Station (built in 1887) I was pleasantly taken back by the artistic atmosphere. What a great concept, saving an old train station along with train cars and a caboose and restoring them into a beautiful and playful place to stay. 4 stars for the atmosphere. The dinning experience was not even close to the expectation's... More

Good Afternoon David, I had an opportunity to speak with the staff who were working on Friday evening and everyone involved was very upset and disappointed to hear your comments. We welcome all feedback from compliments to constructive criticism. Without feedback we would never know where we need to improve or what may need to be changed. For your Caesar's... More
