What more could you ask for? The themed cabesse are quirky and well detailed with everything you'd want. The only downside is it takes some effort to climb up into the caboose! Still, it's worth it. The owners are gracious and welcoming and will tailor breakfast for your specific needs. The food was tasty and just what you need to...

Thank you for your review. Yes, those caboose steps are steep, how well I know! Sometimes I am up and down all the steps of all of the cabooses several times. Doesn't seem to help me lose weight though, hmm. But, never trust a skinny cook, right? Thanks again for staying with us, hope you join us again.

Loved our caboose. Dog friendly and oh so quiet!! The bed was comfortable. Everything was very clean. The heater was a bit noisy and we could have used more light. But coffee was great, the hosts very accommodating.

We stayed there for the 'train' experience and had a very nice time. The hosts couldn't have been nicer and breakfast was very yummy. The spectacle of 9 cabooses on the lakefront property is novel. The conversions which were done a couple of decades are beginning to look a little worn, which is to be expected with some of the...

Thank you for your review. I am glad you had a nice time. Sorry about not being able to use the dock, but we are waiting to make sure the water level doesn't rise more again, before putting the dock back together, looks like we will be able to restore it soon. You are totally right about certain things, like...

This was a fun and unique place that was furnished nicely. We stayed in one of several theme decorated cabooses. Ours was right across from the lake with a little deck . These are very comfy and cozy. Ours had a hot tub and a feather bed. We were in at the off season and it was a little chilly....

It's actually nice that they don't allow kids here -- if you're as intrigued by the thought of staying in a historic caboose as we were, it forces you to figure out childcare for a couple days and give yourself a romantic getaway. We stayed in and loved the Wine Country car. The hosts could not have been nicer and...

My husband and I stayed at Featherbed for 4 nights earlier this month, and enjoyed every minute of it. The owners, June and Paul, are phenomenal hosts. They've taken care of often-overlooked details in the room like large, soft towels, high-quality bedding, locally sourced and delicious coffee. They make a full home cooked breakfast every day - delicious! And they...

We are rail fans and staying in caboose a real treat. We love to sit in high seats in the cupola and relax , talking, drinking coffee. Fun to imagine when the caboose was going down the tracks. Breakfast excellent with beautiful presentation. Owners wonderful. We appreciated efforts to provide breakfast with consideration for food allergies. Wonderful experience!We look forward...
