Three genuine cabooses sit on acres and acres of undeveloped rolling land. Peaceful, serene setting. Each train car has it's own little deck with table and chairs for relaxing outdoors. The interior feels like a small motel room and bath. On the plus side: The owner was very personable and eager to please. The unit was very clean. The bed... More

My wife, our puppy, and I just returned from another wonderful stay at Grassy Creek Cabooses. We were fortunate to get to stay in the "Depot", again, and everything was perfect, as we have come to expect. The folks who own the cabooses have never failed to provide a fantastic experience. The facility is spotless, and comfortably furnished. We look... More

The best part of Grassy Creek is the location - remote and quiet, yet close enough the the parkway. The caboose was fun - it's sort of like an RV once inside. We brought a picnic dinner and some quick breakfast items. The little kitchenette area was well stocked with what we needed. We spent most of our time outside... More

Silent, remote location. Little sounds, a few cars, mooing. After dark, with clear skies, the view is fantastic. No Wifi though (and my cell didn't work), so print your Heavens-Above satellite schedules and starcharts the day before! The caboose was tiny but perfect. We brought some dinner to zap and cold stuff for the little fridge. Didn't use the hot... More

We stayed here while touring the Blue Ridge Parkway to get out of the rain. This was a very unique experience. The owner of the establishment, named Donny is very nice and helpful! The rooms: The rooms are actually the cabooses. It is amazing how much they can fit in those little guys. Ours had a large bed, a hot... More

We rented 2 cabooses and the depot.The cabooses and the depot are well appointed, clean and comfortable. Each one has a Jacuzzi tub, microwave, refrigerator and coffee maker. One of... More

My wife and I have been visiting this beautiful property for years, and continue to be totally satisfied on every occasion. On our first visit, there were 3 cabooses, and we were amazed at the creative use of the space. Who would have expected a Jacuzzi and kitchen in a caboose? This year, we were treated to a stay in...

The wife, I and our dog Toby really enjoyed our stay at The Cabooses. We were going to the beach in NC and needed to stop along the way. We really enjoy the Blueridge Parkway Area so we picked this area. We had thought about finding a log cabin....but in looking we came across Donnies place. The photos looked great... More

This is a group of four old cabooses way out in the country that have all been refurbished into very nice accommodations. They all have jacuzzis, and a small kitchenette. We stayed here in 2009 while travelling down the Blue Ridge Parkway, and again this year in Sept. Very close to the Blue Ridge Music Center and to the town... More
