Pullman House Inn
Ranked #1 of 1 Portola B&B and Inns
Reviewed July 29, 2012

This B&B is a great spot for train lovers. It is within walking distance of the Western Pacific RR Museum, rooms overlook the UP tracks and crew changes occur here. There is only half the train movements that previously occured here as apparently only West bound trains pass thru on this line.
The inn is also only a short drive from the inn to the Clio Trestle, the Keddie Wye and the Quincy (AKA Williams) loop.
The innkeeper is very nice and knowledgable.
The WPRR Museum is a gem in that it is a very hands on, kid friendly place.
My grandson and I were lucky enough to see a short train of spine cars go over the Keddie Wye, the cars were dropped off at Portola, and the locomotives were there as well. That was actually the only east bound action we saw.
I highly recommend this inn.

I was the only guest (early in season) and it was very pleasant. Nice continental breakfast. Small room but had everything needed. Personnel very helpful.
