Guestbook comments from the owner

HI Joel,



Thank you! The rest of the stay was just fine.



It's a very nice place to stay, especially as a base camp when day

paddling! We loved the bird activity.

Great secluded getaway!

  • 5 of 5
We were looking for a quick secluded getaway and we found it here! It's definitely off the beaten path. When can you say you've stayed in a train caboose?! Now, we can.

The caboose is fully stocked with everything you'd possibly need. The weather was frigid, but we kept warm with the cozy gas fireplace. We enjoyed the hot tub, made a fire, made some s'mores and then relaxed with a movie!

The surrounding towns have great pubs and food! We found a hiking trail, winery and even a casino. No need to leave the caboose, though. It has everything you'd need for a comfortable stay. We were able to relax before the craziness of the holidays. Thanks so much!

Authentic and Quiet

  • 4 of 5
Location, location, location! Looking for a place to come home to in the evening and relax and enjoy a glass of wine? This is your place. Loved staying here! Such a beautiful unique piece of heaven. If you want privacy, you will get privacy when you stay here. And if you want darkness, you'll get it (it's so beautiful to look up at the stars on a clear night).
The only thing I would change would be the time of year I will go on my next trip. We like to fish and this would have been an ideal fishing spot.

Right on track!

  • 5 of 5
Stayed at the caboose property to get a way from it all after some rock climbing adventures! A bit of a drive from the climbing site but that was the point, to get away! Set back in a place that's next to nowhere it was great to relax the muscles in the hot tub without anyone else around!

Little Caboose in the Woods

  • 5 of 5
This was a great site for a weekend get away. Close enough to town to venture out, but far away from all noise, streetlights and roads. All the amenities you need, kitchen, shower, heat, etc surrounded by trees and country roads and streams.

Unique getaway in the bluffs

  • 4 of 5
We love to stay in unique places so we took our 5 year old to stay in the caboose for the weekend. The area is beautiful and the caboose is so private. We enjoyed campfires, exploring a dry creek bed, and spent some time playing in the Mississippi River. We would definitely consider returning for another stay!
