We stayed at the Northern Rail Traincar Inn 2 nights. We would stay again. The beds are good. Breakfast was limited due to Covid but adequate. Rooms are quiet and comfortable. Rooms are clean. The location allowed us to get to many north shore sites with little trouble. Service was outstanding.
Booked 2 rooms anticipating unique furnishings in keeping with the exterior railroad cars. But interiors are drywall walls with very ordinary furnishings. Pricey at $170 per night per room. Have stayed elsewhere for less that was more interesting. Breakfast was packaged food one could get at a convenience store.
We had a full rail car room, Queen Safari (Rm 207). Lots of room. Sitting area was separated from the bedroom. Bed was comfortable! Room was spotless. Loved the idea and the way they connected the cars, including the hallway.
The owners of this place are very nice. They told us we were able to get dvds from the lobby and take them to our rooms to watch. We didn't use this option, but appreciated the offer. They also had breakfast packed for you to go based on a menu you submitted. I wasn't sure what to expect for room size(we did 1/2 car with a queen bed), but they were ample, and actual the bathrooms were larger than I expected. The sheets on the bed were the softest sheets I have EVER slept on. I don't ever think about things like that, but this is a noticeable difference than the norm. We were only there for one night, so didn't explore the property or the lobby, but it looked like it would be a place you could enjoy. There was a bit of noise on the hallway walkway, but it was no different than a chain hotel when people are walking down the hall. I would go back here again if we were in the area.…
This place was awesome. It was unique and so well done. The owners were so nice an it is obvious they love this place. We had a half traincar with two beds and it was perfect for mom dad and two teens. They had movies for borrowing and a nice breakfast. It’s also a perfect location for all the local sites.
