Come spend some time in a real, completely refurbished railroad caboose (with all the modern amenities) just off the Blue Ridge Parkway at Orchard Gap, approximate mile 193.5. Probably the most unique lodging along the Blue Ridge Parkway. Grassy Creek Cabooses are cabooses renovated into cabins for lodging/rental in the Blue Ridge mountains near Fancy Gap Virginia with private bath, kitchenette, 2 person Jacuzzi's, 32” flat screen satellite TV (w/over 145 channels), heat and air in each unit.

Relive a bygone era when train travel was fun and elegant. Come relax in a real caboose built by Nickel Plate Road or Norfolk Western and reminisce about the simp...

We were looking for something fun to do without having to travel to far from home. We remembered hearing about the Red Caboose's off the Parkway, so we decided to take a chance and spend the night. WE LOVED IT!!! We will definitley go back. The owner checked us in and was very nice and helpful. All the amenities provided were so nice and the peace and quiet was great!! I forget how beautiful it is up there and the ride along the parkway was beautiful.

We were riding the Blue Ridge Parkway on our motorcycle and this was our first night's accommodations. This was our most memorable night on the parkway. Sitting on the deck in front of the caboose watching the sun set is etched in our memories. This is a hidden gem. Clean property, GREAT Jaccuzzi, comfortable bed and what a view. Granted - you have to pay attention to the mile markers to find this place - the access is at mile post 193.5 which is across the street from the Rap's Bar & Grill - once your on the paved road the signs will get you to the cabooses. Also - from a motorcyclist point of view you really have to watch the gravel road up to the cabooses. The gravel is a little loose and it will make you pay attention - but it is worth the effort.

Management response:

Thanks for your review. We're glad you all enjoyed your stay. We sometimes forget how peaceful it is up here ourselves until we have to travel down into a big city.
