1 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 2
Natural Bridge, Virginia
This caboose will accommodate a couple or a small family. It has one bedroom with a double bed and a single daybed in the "great room". Small children could sleep in the cupola with sleeping bags. I have one in the drawers beneath the captain's bed in the bedroom. The caboose has been fully renovated, has a galley with stove, convection microwave, sink and small fridge. There is a full bath with shower. This is a work of love and packs a lot into a small 200 square foot space. The patio has a gas grill and a gas "hobo fire pit". Come and create memories in the "Valley of Virginia" The caboose is heated with a "Mr. Slim" heat pump but the floors tend to be cold so bring slippers! I haven't figured how to insulate the floors of a railcar.
I have an old stew pot on the patio which we use...

The caboose had everything we needed. The patio is very relaxing. A really sweet German Sheppard came to visit....

5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 8, 2014 for a stay in October 2014

This restored caboose was amazing. I stayed one night. The caboose is small, as it should be. Small refrigerator. Microwave. Bring your own food. No Wi-Fi (lol -- if you're looking for that experience, then go someplace else). One queen bed and a loft for two. Clean bathroom and great shower. A couch and a TV -- if you want...

I am glad you came to visit. The day bed in the galley is small and an antique. We discovered the shower head was partially clogged after you left. Also,...
