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!

My wife and I recently spent two nights at The Train Station Inn. We stayed in one of the Inn's converted railroad cabooses. The caboose was charming and fantastic. The caboose/room was comfortable and nicely decorated. We also had two terrific meals in the Dining Car. The staff and owner were fun and very responsive. We also enjoyed the adjacent... More

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
