We were thrilled with our stay at the Northern Rail Traincar Suites. The hospitality could not have been better, very friendly staff and management. The rooms were extremely clean. We stayed in the King Suite and could not get over the size of it. Pricing is also very much inline with what you would get with a larger chain, but probably a much smaller room.
This is not a B & B and management is working with Trip Advisor to have this distinction taken off. They do offer a continental breakfast which does have many choices. There are DVD's, books, and plenty of board games that you can borrow at no charge.
We never would have thought sleeping in a train box car would be so enjoyable. We are already planning our return trip here next summer with our daughters! Well done Cyndi!
