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.

Truly a colorful and relaxing stay. We played horseshoes while watching a thunder storm move across the sky. Over an hour of lightning strikes moved from the west to the east sky, clearly seeing all. The west sky transformed into a magnificent colorful sunset, continuing to lightning in the east. The sky cleared up to see a 1000 stars and there were no polluting lights from the neighbors, hats off to them. Additionally, the sounds of three types of frogs resonated. The caboose was comfortable and the jacuzzi a plus. The morning was filled with more horseshoes and the sound of cows mooing in the distance. A lovely stay.
