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 for wood...

Awesome private space, kids loved it, well maintained and equipped. A unique experience for young/small family and well worth it.

Management response:

The caboose is a special work of love. I have carefully planned every aspect of this project. I hope my guests will appreciate the effort put into this restoration.

Staying in the caboose was a perfect choice for our small family. Our 1 year old now has a new favorite word... "choo choo." Having the option of a campfire/s'mores was also a great touch. We would love to go back!!

Management response:

There is wood for fires or there is a gas fired fire pit. Bring your own charcoal for the Webber grill or use the gas grill.

About the neighbourhood
The caboose is on three acres with my cabin in a rural setting. It is private but not remote or secluded. Several other homes are visible from the property. There are landscape features and plantings which provide privacy. There is parking at the base of the stairs. There is a large open yard behind the caboose. The patio provides space to hang out outside by the fire or grill steaks or hamburgers on the gas grill.
