    Property description
    Natural Bridge
    Rental Home – 
    1 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 2
    This caboose will accommodate a couple or a small family. It has one bedroom with a double bed and a single daybed in the "great room". Small children could sleep in the cupola with sleeping bags. I have one in the drawers beneath the captain's bed in the bedroom. The caboose has been fully renovated, has a galley with stove, convection microwave, sink and small fridge. There is a full bath with shower. This is a work of love and packs a lot into a small 200 square foot space. The patio has a gas grill and a gas "hobo fire pit". Come and create memories in the "Valley of Virginia" The caboose is heated with a "Mr. Slim" heat pump but the floors tend to be cold so bring slippers! I haven't figured how to insulate the floors of a railcar.... more

    Additional Location Information
    The caboose is on three acres with my cabin in a rural setting. It is private but not remote or secluded. Several other homes are visible from the property. There are landscape features and plantings which provide privacy. There is parking at the base of the stairs. There is a large open yard behind the caboose. The patio provides space to hang out outside by the fire or grill steaks or hamburgers on the gas grill.
