Step back in time and experience Nova Scotia’s Railway heritage, brought to life in this award winning country inn. Accommodations are located in private railway cars which have been developed into deluxe suites with all the modern amenities from fireplaces, king beds and air conditioning. We also have rooms in the former Stationmaster's residence on the second floor of the Train Station. You can dine in our Railway Dining Car, enjoy your favourite drink in the observation lounge of the Vice Royal Railway Car "Alexandra" or relax in the railway museum café in the train station. Don't forget to explore our "funky" gift shop and take a stroll on the old rail bed now the Trans Canada Trail that follows along the Tatamagouche Bay passing the Creamery Square and Tatamagouche Grain Elevator Village.

Once again, we were in caboose #10. We also like #6 and they are quite different from each other. I imagine that each caboose is unique, but am accustomed to a nice sitting room with futon and small dining table with chairs and simple kitchenette. The bath is small, but complete

"We liked the caboose."
"Beware; getting into the dining or accommodation cars means climbing train car steps. Well worth it, but very steep."
"Don't choose #5 Other railcars must be much better for the Inn to get such positive reviews."
"Take the last caboose in the line if it's available - although wifi is less reliable the further you are down the line."
"did not overnight, just ate at the dining car."
$107 - $181 (Based on Average Rates for a Standard Room)
