“Unique”

Reviewed 24 Apr 2014

It was a very cute and unique experience, however the sofa could have been more comfortable. Also the shower head was stopped up. But it was a fun experience and we had a great time having dinner and s'mores outside with a bonfire. It was a little pricey for the accommodations .

Response from the owner I am glad you came to visit. The day bed in the galley is small and an antique. We discovered the shower head was partially clogged after you left. Also, we discovered that you had not turned on the heat in the caboose. It has a central heating and cooling system. This is a quality renovation and I do not wish to attract guests looking for the least expensive accomodations.

“Fun in the Caboose!”

Reviewed 25 Oct 2012

My 89-year-old dad, who loves trains, wanted to go see the leaves change, so I was excited to find this little caboose! We stayed two nights and then went on to Cass WV to ride the steam trains! Natural Bridge was the perfect stopover point for us - and the caboose was so clean and comfortable! (I was prepared for the shower to be not so great, as often happens in situations like this - but I was very pleasantly surprised - it was great!) We loved discovering all the little details - Tom's Train songs CDs, a great Bose system, a charming train library - how did Tom get all that cool stuff in that little caboose? Ha! And what a hoot to drive up to a flashing RR sign - Tom thought of everything! The caboose was so much fun, and it made the trip so memorable... dad is already telling all his friends about it!

“The perfect getaway!”

Reviewed 15 Oct 2012

We had hoped for a quick, quiet weekend getaway, and what a great place we found at the caboose! Attention to detail, comfort, convenience - Tom has thought of everything. Despite the chilly evening, we grilled steaks and enjoyed a bottle of wine around the fire pit. On Saturday we went to Lexington Valley Vineyards and had a wine tasting and a picnic. The fact that the caboose and the vineyard are dog-friendly made our stay even nicer, as we don't like leaving our rescue Bichon at home! We hope to return with our granddaughter, who is a big Thomas fan. She will love it!

“Perfect anniversary Weekend Getaway!!!”

Reviewed 17 Sep 2012

Like to take the road less traveled, off the beaten path then you'll find this lovingly restored Caboose fits the bill! As our three-year-old grandson would say, wow! and wow! and wow! We hope to return one day with him so he can experience the ambiance, hot dogs and smores from a hobo fire. Find your way to the nearby Pink Cadillac for some delicious omelets and from scratch homemade biscuits. We were thrilled by the animal antics at Safari Park -- go early in the day, especially if it's warm, as the animals are more active. Hold on tight to your feed bucket! Celebrating our 39th wedding anniversary, we wanted something memorable. Our weekend getaway at the Caboose was just that! Toot! Toot! to Tom!

“Loved, loved, loved the caboose!!”

Reviewed 20 Jul 2012

What a fun experience! We called at 1:00pm on a Sat. for a Sat. arrival, and Tom got the caboose ready for us. My 12 year old loved it. Sleeping in a caboose, smores over the fire pit, and a visit by Jingles. It was perfect. Perfect location for the Natural Bridge, the zoo or safari park!

“Little Red Caboose!”

Reviewed 16 Jul 2012

We thoroughly enjoyed out weekend at the caboose! We will be recommending it to friends and maybe one day we will be back! Thanks for everything! The relaxing atmosphere of the Hobo Pit made the weekend just perfect!

“Unique & special experience”

Reviewed 16 Jul 2011

A really great & 'different' spot to stay over, either while in transit (as we were, via motorcycle) or for a brief get-away (from both home & the typical motel/resort type accommodations) -- we'll definitely return & spend a bit more time (than just 2 nights) at some point in the future.

Response from the owner There is much to see and do in our area. Natural Bridge and it's attractions, Natural Bridge Caverns, Natural Bridge Zoo, Virginia Safari Park, Cave Mountain Lake, Blue Ridge Parkway, Trails, Lexington and it's historic sites, The two colleges and their museums. Goshen Pass, and the Peaks of Otter all close by. There is more to do than can be done in a two day stay.

“Charminig and Relaxing”

Reviewed 23 May 2011

Microwave was not working. would be super if the sofa were a bit more comfy.

Response from the owner We found that the Kitchen Aide microwave had a problem and promptly replaced it. The daybed in the galley is an antique. As with most antiques, they are not necessarily the most comfortable.

“Our Favorite New Place to Stay”

Reviewed 23 May 2011

This caboose was a fun place to stay! It was in a convenient location being right off of the interstate, but was set down a country road and you really didn't notice that the highway was near once you were there. It was obvious that the owner put a lot of love and care into renovating it. Everything coordinated with the railroad theme and every inch of space was utilized to make it seem larger than it is. It is a real caboose, so it isn't very big. But the charm and uniqueness made it definitely worth staying there. The owner is very clever. When you pull up in your car, a real Railroad Crossing sign lights up and begins flashing. The patio outside has a gas firepit, which was fun to sit around at night. If you wanted a real fire, there was firewood for that as well. We plan to visit again next year!
