Fredericksburg Castle Rental Photos and Description

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.

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!👍🏻🚊🛤💎🛁

Historic with lots of charm

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I decided to do something a little different for our 18th wedding anniversary and staying in the train car added so much charm to our visit. We found the train to be cozy and accommodating and the location close to everything. I had no idea at the time of booking that the company that owns the train car was Fischer & Wieser, the company that makes the delicious sauces and jellies we buy at HEB, or that it was established in Fredericksburg. The gift pack of sauces/marinades left for us was a nice touch. We will definitely stay here on our next visit!

A fun trip back in time

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I booked this rail car for 2 nights earlier this month. What a treat! We found it very charming. The bed was quite comfy, and there were plenty of linens (and wine glasses!). Our friends who dropped by want to stay there next.

2 things to note -the entry steps are fairly steep (though there are only a few), so those with mobility issues should be aware. Also, the interior hallways are pretty narrow -not a problem for me, but my husband had to turn partially sideways to get through more easily.

We found Pat to be very helpful, and highly recommend this place!
