The entire experience was way beyond our expectation. John is an excellent communicator and the property was filled with nice touches to make us feel welcome. Very clean, very up to date, very romantic. We would love to go back.
My wife and I had a fantastic weekend at the caboose. Zero issues with the heat as some reviews mentioned. The baseboard heaters were plenty so never bothered with the fireplace. Shower worked perfectly well so no issues as some reviews in the past mentioned. Yes there were a few bugs and other TYPICAL things you should expect in nature. But nothing that stands out in a way that should deter from a good time. I greatly overestimated what I'd needed to prepare meals as the kitchen was appointed nicely. Hot tub is a great touch but to be honest hardly used because there was so much to do in the area. Few miles off the highway on a gravel road so you get the feel of being in the middle of no where. But it's a short drive to several small towns with plenty to do and see. The Wooden Nickle in Ferryville was full of super friendly and fun folks. Solid drink specials and great bugers. Will absolutely make the caboose a yearly, if not more frequent weekend get away.
Great stay at the caboose
This was a perfect getaway for my boyfriend and I over winter break. However, we were very surprised how icy and slick the roads were getting to and from the caboose. It was raining and 40 degrees, but that area has steep and narrow roads so be advised. The caboose overall was amazing and looking forward to visiting again.
Btw, The Wooden Nickel in Ferryville had such amazing and friendly people, and were so welcoming :)
Secluded, quiet, fun!
This was such a unique and fun experience! We had a great time staying here and loved the hot tub, fireplace, woods, peace and quiet. John was very communicative and answered all my questions before we arrived. We appreciated him letting us know the shower pipes had frozen (it's a rustic caboose - no big deal) so we could come prepared for that situation. Easy to get to and neat area - saw tons of bald eagles and nests. Good food in Lansing. Great coffee selection in the caboose and nice extras like games, a microwave and fridge, and a firepit (although we didn't have a chance to use the pit). Excellent area for the outdoorsperson. All in all a memorable and fun weekend! Note that this is an authentic caboose, so the entry is metal grated steps that could be challenging for some dogs. We travel with a ramp for our older lab, so it was no problem but wanted to mention it for others.
This was a great weekend getaway for my boyfriends birthday! Being able to bring our fur buddy was a plus. Cozy with great views, plus a hot tub 👍🏻
