When the weather's nice, head out to the depot deck to dine al fresco while gazing out at the tranquil scenery as evening descends on the horizon. For dessert, roast some marshmallows around the fire pit as the luminous stars shimmer overhead, completely undisturbed by city lights.
As day fades to night, you and your companion will love retreating to the 2 twin beds with custom made quality mattresses, perched up high in the cupola, or the full platform bed in the living room! During the summer, you can open up all the windows and allow the fresh cross-breeze to provide a calming outdoor sleeping experience.
Although the caboose itself is sure to provide a memorable experience, the best part of this cabin is its unbeatable remote location, easily accessible from the interstate, allowing you to enjoy the best of both worlds.
