We loved staying here in the cabooses! Had a great time sitting on the deck, playing on the dock, resting in the hammocks and enjoying the lake views. Four of us went for a restful, relaxing girl's week-end and had so much fun. The deck was my favorite - with wooden rocking chairs, picnic tables, grills, and of course can't forget the squirrels running around. We could see the lake from the deck, beautiful sunsets. Inside the caboose we had plenty of room. Two bunks on each side at one end of the caboose with a queen size bed in cupola. We cooked our meals in the kitchen, pots and pans, plates, utensils all provided. Only thing I will take next time is another skillet. Refrigerator, microwave, coffee pot and toaster provided. Everything you need for a kitchen. Stool in one little room and shower and sink in another part. In middle of caboose there is a couch, chair, TV and a wood stove. Very quaint and authentic. The owners were very friendly. We definitely hope to come back here again and maybe bring the family.
