Cabooses were a unique place to stay and something for the bucket list. The food at the Dining Car (Casey Jones) was very good and we had fun just staying on the property.

Love the kitschy caboose theme. It's been updated since the last time i was there the restaurant and gift shop are very nice. The cabooses are neat but the bathroom was tiny and they need some insulation the wind was brutal and the room was cold.

Unique Fire pit was a total disappointment - more like a construction burn pile

Very neat experience for my two train fanatics. As long as they are pleased, then I’m pleased, and that’s all that matters to me.
