About the Property

Voted the BEST Romantic Get-Away in Wisconsin!! New Lower nightly Rate!
Just newly restored and painted in and out!
Relive the old railroad days in this original 1954 Rail Road caboose! History at it's best!
Secluded on five acres, this caboose features a kitchen, bath, gas fireplace and a private deck with its very own hot tub!
Sit in the cupola of the caboose and read a book or scope out the wildlife from the wrap around view. We are just walking distance from a Class A trout stream. Fish or Dangle your feet in the cool flowing waters.
Ask about our Guided Caving,Kayaking, or Ice Climbing trips to add some Adventure to your get-a-way stay!
Enjoy a relaxing dinner at the best local restaurant- The Great River Roadhouse- overlooking the Mississippi River!
Sleeping is on a double size futon and bunks. Will sleep up to four people (two to three adults and a child). This perfect for a couple or small family with young children.
There is NOW Cell signal at caboose- at least with Verizon.....
Check-In is 3PM, Check-out is 11AM. Weekly bookings are Friday to Friday. ALL Reservation deposits are non-refundable. Refunds after final payments are made will only be given if we can re-book the dates that are canceled. Note: The caboose is now a SELF cleaning cabin with NO cleaning fee. You will need to clean it up at the end of your stay and provide your own linens(full size or twin), towels. This will save you. We also have critters in the area, like mice, that may be present in and around the property.
Pontoon Boat and Fishing boat packages on the Miss. River are also available. Ask our manager for more details.
HUGE DISCOUNT DEAL: Many guests ask for discounts for last minute bookings....sadly. most of our bookings are LAST Minute so we can not offer last minute deals BUT we are offering guests who book EARLY a deal! Here it is: Get 5% off your rate for EVERY MONTH in ADVANCE that you reserve with a PAID DEPOSIT! Example- book 4 months early- get a 20% off deal! 3 months get 15% off, 2 months get 10% etc. Deposit MUST be paid at least the number of months ahead of time for deal to apply. Max. discount is 20%(or 4 months) Guest must mention this deal at Time of Booking ONLY to get it. Thanks!
Holiday bookings require a 3 Night minimum.....
Cancellations: Vacation properties are often booked many months in advance and the property will be held for your use. While the property is being held for you, it obviously cannot be rented to someone else. Therefore, like cruise, tour packages and airline tickets, when booking/reserving a vacation rental home, you will need to make a full or partial payment upfront in order to hold the property.
Normally this is not a problem, BUT if you need to cancel your trip (especially at the last minute), you should know that you may forfeit a portion or all of your rental fees.
If you have to cancel, we will reopen your reserved dates. If we can rebook the dates, a total refund will be issued. If not, your deposit can be applied towards another rental period(within 6 months), or forfeited. Note, all cancellations OR Change in dates will be charged a $60.00 service fee.
