Staying in an original caboose that has been outfitted as a B&B room is probably the most memorable places we have stayed. The caboose was even outfitted with a large Jacuzzi tub and plenty of hot water. The breakfast was hearty and delicious - the Hobo Breakfast lasted us the entire day! The lake right across the road is a... More

What a unique surprise this well manicured "rail yard" is. Nine well appointed Cabooses to choose from and at a reasonable B&B price. Tony and Peggy run a friendly railroad here. The breakfast was a good way to start you morning. Within walking distance of an acceptable lakeside restaurant where you can have a nice lunch or dinner on their... More

Can't say enough good things about Featherbed Railroad B&B. The place is absolutely charming. Nine little cabooses ringed around a beautiful little park. Hugh trees and plantings. The lake is just across the street, and it's beautiful. They have a private dock for watercraft. The cabooses are so cool. We stayed in he Wild West themed one. So cool. Breakfast... More

What a fun and different place to stay. The rooms are all old cabooses, each decorated in a different theme. They are situated in a lovely wooded area across from Clear Lake in Nice,CA. We stayed in Tropical Treat and it was quite large and comfortable. Breakfast was served in the main dining room and it was delicious. They have... More

When we drove up to the property, we were pleasantly surprised. Looks just like the pictures and the property was well maintained. Pool was closed and under construction, but everything else was great. It was located right across the road from Clearlake and the property had its own dock and pier. The only downside to the room was that there... More

A clever idea, but not for $200 a night. We arrived before 3 pm and the office was closed. We found our railroad car a little outdated. The sink in the bathroom drained so slowly, you had to wait nearly 5 minutes for it to drain. No television reception or Wifi. Breakfast was disappointing, some sort of very sweet French... More

After years of investment and work on the property it's always a bummer when someone doesn't thoroughly love their getaway here. We fully own the fact that we're a bunch of vintage cabooses in a rural area and we're certainly not for everybody, but when someone gets all excited about the place and then is let down, that's not good....
