My husband and I returned to the FBRR on our 20th anniversary. It has changed in the past 20 years! The have a greater selection of cars! We stayed in the Orient, and enjoyed it immensely. Very relaxing! We had a great dinner in Upper Lake and a delicious breakfast the following morning. The hosts were very nice and friendly....

A clever idea, but not for $200 a night. We arrived before 3 pm and the office was closed. We found our railroad car a little outdated. The sink in the bathroom drained so slowly, you had to wait nearly 5 minutes for it to drain. No television reception or Wifi. Breakfast was disappointing, some sort of very sweet French...

After years of investment and work on the property it's always a bummer when someone doesn't thoroughly love their getaway here. We fully own the fact that we're a bunch of vintage cabooses in a rural area and we're certainly not for everybody, but when someone gets all excited about the place and then is let down, that's not good....

This place was really unique... like different than anything I've ever experienced before. Every car has a different theme and we stayed in one that was Halloween themed. The jacuzzi is an awesome touch and each room comes with one. The lot is close to a beautiful lake and they have a dock for guests. The owners were extremely nice...

We stopped here on our way to the redwoods. Nothing cooler then a yard full of cabooses. We stayed in the Celebrations caboose, the bed was great and the hot tub fun. The breakfast the next morning was fantastic. We would stay here again in a heartbeat.

We are always so happy when someone takes a bit of their vacation time and shares it with us. But nothing makes us happier than when we can be a part of that vacation that they look back on fondly. Thank you for sharing your vacation with us and we're thrilled that you enjoyed your stay.

A unqiue experience. TropiCaboose was comfortable and QUIET. The Clear Lake area is beautiful. Innkeepers Tony & Peggy are friendly and helpful. Stayed two nights and had two delicious and filling breakfasts. At our request, Tony provided some winery recommendatoins and directions and we had a marvelous day. So glad we came to Lake County and missed the Napa eathquake....

We spent 3 nights at this B&B in the Orient Express Caboose for my husbands birthday. It was really nice....we loved it. It was actually a surprise for my husband who is a big train buff, so it was a big hit! We drove in from Sacramento airport and didn't have any trouble finding it. Checking in was easy, and...

We travelled to the States for the first time this summer and wanted somewhere that evoked the West. We stayed in a caboose with a wild west theme. How much more American can you get. The steel bedroom was clean and well appointed with an antique bath that was fun and practical with lashings of hot water. Hosts Tony and...

We sure appreciated your staying - was great speaking about music with you and, of course, we're always happy to go test the waters at the local bars. It's something Tony's quite adept at, actually.

A great place with a difference... Beautiful cabooses done up in different themes. Large Spa bath in rooms. Pool. Best ever breakfast! Staff are excellent . Must be seen , I've travelled a lot but this place has such a great originality. Perfect getaway for couples.

My husband and I spent a night in the Wild Wild West Caboose for our anniversary. It was really fun and we had a great time! Our flight was delayed getting in to Oakland, so we didn't have much time to see the lake or the surrounding area, so I'll focus only on the B&B itself. Finding the place, and...
