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(in Winter) 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.

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!

Example- book 4 months early- get a 20% off deal! 3 months get 15% off, 2 months get 10% etc. FULL payment 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 the deal. 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.
NOTE: The location requires you to become a member/owner of the LLC while visiting. This is NOT a PUBLIC facility or Tourist Rooming House(TRH). It is private and by Invitation ONLY. Your fee paid your pro rata share of expenses and only offsets expenses and it should not to be mis-construed as a commercial operation of any type or TRH… Deposits or full payments made to lock in a reservation are NON-refundable but can be transferred to another date that same season, subject to LLC manager discretion

We had a wonderful time at the Caboose. Our 6 year old son who loves trains, couldn’t believe it when we pulled up. And then of course we all loved the hot tub. We would definitely go again, so fun!
Cold weekend to spend at the caboose, but great nonetheless!
Cold weekend to spend at the caboose, but great nonetheless! It’s a remote location with limited cell service, so be prepared as far as travel goes. The setting is picturesque, it’s a nice place to get away.
Thanks so much!
Perfect little weekend getaway. Romantic and peaceful, exactly what we needed!
Thanks so much!
Cool little get-a-way. 3rd time. Relaxed and fun.
This is a neat place to go. It is quite and away from lots of business. My wife and I found this place before we married. Now we brought our kids twice. My son actually requested it for his birthday. We like the quite, cozy, simple, cabin living aspect. The kids like the outdoors, hot tube, camp fire, creek bottom, hikes, and space. ...and your in a caboose in the driftless bluffs.
There are what might be considered a few downsides for some. The futon and upper bunk are a bit rough on the back. It is not house keeper clean but definitely not bad. Some dog hair and damned Japanese beetles. The hot tub has some hard water stains and I think it idles for a while without service.
Overall awesome fun place.
Cozy in the woods
Even though the weekend was wet, the cabin provided a cozy environment that was perfect for a weekend away from the city.
best get away we ever took!
beautiful area, the caboose was very cozy.
Awesome to hear! Thanks for staying with us!
