About the property

Perfect for the couple that wants a unique place to stay, walk to everything!

Want to experience what it was like to ride in a Pullman car while crossing this great country of ours? The 1894 Private Palace Pullman Car will give you that feeling and more! Theodore Roosevelt used this car on one of his trips to the 6666 Ranch in North Texas. It is believed that the Indian Chief – Quanah Parker has also ridden in this unique Pullman Car. History surrounds you in every nook and cranny. This wonderful antique train car was built in 1894 by Pullman for the Quanah, Acme and Pacific railroad. Not only is the car historic, but it is very Romantic and perfect for a 'Just the Two of You' Getaway.

Hospitality and history close to everything!

  • 5 of 5

Really a lovely little place to stay if you're wanting to experience some rich Texas history, with the added benefit of being close to Main Street and many other cool places in Fredericksburg. We loved learning the long, interesting history of the Pullman car. Also loved the many amenities and treats from the host. The only thing missing was the swaying of the car back and forth on the tracks!

Unusual combination of romance and history.

  • 5 of 5

Was looking for something different to celebrate our 42nd anniversary. We travel a good bit in and out of the US, often by train, but had never stayed in a private train car before. We very much enjoyed the experience and won't hesitate to do it again. Private and great for romantic getaways. The 6666 was built for a famous North Texan in 1894 and is full of antiques and Teddy Roosevelt memorabilia from that period. Very comfortable queen bed and lounging area. Everything is a bit tight by modern standards but that's just part of the experience. Huge clawfoot tub in one bathroom and small shower with great water pressure in the other. Tiny galley on the far end with Keurig, microwave and small refrigerator to hold the wine and desserts you'll bring back from Main Street. Located across Barron Creek about 3 or 4 blocks from Main Street in a light industrial area (~7 minute walk). There's also a HEB grocery 2 blocks away for essentials. Big parking area. Some traffic noise but nothing intrusive. By a neat twist of fate, our favorite sauces and condiment maker, Fischer & Wieser, owns the 6666 and it's right by their facility. We had no idea! We also received two large gift certificates to use in their store on Main Street or the Peach Haus and came home with a backseat full of different sauces and such. Very friendly people and we will definitely be back in the next year or two!

Would I recommend this vacation rental to my best friend? Yes.

The coolest place to stay when visiting Fredericksburg!

  • 5 of 5

This historic train car is definitely the coolest place I have stayed in during a vacation. It really takes you back in time and provides you with not only a place to stay, but adds to the experience of your stay in Fredericksburg. It's only 3 blocks away from Main Street, well within walking distance but also set back a bit, and very quiet. If you're looking for an out of the ordinary place to stay in Fredericksburg, look no further!

A unique experiance

  • 4 of 5

I rented the train for my wife's 30th birthday weekend. She loves history so I thought something different would be good. The train is very well kept. Clean, and comfy. It's located in a "warehouse" district, so it's soooo quiet out there it's easy to pass out. It's also just a few blocks away from Main street, so that was a plus! AND I got a gift certificate to their shop which was amazing!!

Overall, I'd say this is a good place to stay at if you like history!

My wife loved it!

Step back in time!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I enjoyed our stay at the Pullman rail car in Fredericksburg, TX. The furnishings are vintage and quaint. The bed was very comfortable. Ms. Beltran went the extra mile for us with hot chocolate and English breakfast tea for use in the Keurig as we are not coffee drinkers. We also enjoyed the tickets for the Pacific War museum. It was a unique way for us to celebrate our 40th wedding anniversary. There is lots to do in town and surrounding areas. Great fun and good times!👍🏻🚊🛤💎🛁
