“Unique and fun experience sleeping on the caboose.”
Reviewed 19 March 2012

We recently stayed at the Featherbed for one night while on a northern CA driving tour. Staying on the caboose was a real treat. If you are a train fan (or even if you're not) this was a really neat way of treating yourself to something entirely unique. We were on the Wild West car, which had a nice deep clawfoot tub and comfy bed. There's a lookout perch you can climb in to read or just sit. Breakfast in the morning was prompt and delicious. The hosts were friendly and welcoming. Because of the pouring rain, we didn't get to do much outside near the lake but it's right across the street. Not much else to do around the property but still worth the stay.

Nice is a beautiful drive a few hours north of San Francisco. It is a wonderful little retreat tucked into a small, quiet community. Owners are very helpful and friendly. The room was fun and comfortable. Breakfast was great!

We were drawn to this lovely, unusual place based on the photos and we booked it for my boyfriend's birthday last fall, staying in the Celebration Caboose. Upon booking, I immediately received a call from the owners, just thanking us for booking and asking me if we had any special requests and what occasion we were celebrating. I advised them of my boyfriend's birthday and they took notes. Upon our arrival, we found that the grounds were lush, well-kept, and tranquil. It truly had a resort feeling: tucked away and peaceful with a gorgeous view of the lake and an adult-sized swing that must be experienced! The owners, Tony and Peggy, were both present upon our check-in and they encouraged us to explore the station house and the grounds. Our room was decorated for my boyfriend's birthday with banners and small decorations. The bed was amazingly soft and comfortable. The hot tub was excellent. Staying a caboose that was separated from other rooms offered a quiet sense of privacy which was very relaxing and unique. Breakfast was lovely (a German farmer's breakfast to celebrate the Oktoberfest which was happening in town that day). We had a truly lovely getaway weekend.

We had the pleasure of staying here for two nights as a surprise trip for the fella's birthday. We stayed in the Casablanca Caboose, and enjoyed every minute of our stay. The owners definitely put time and attention into the details.

The resort itself is very unique and relaxing. The dining room/lounge area was cozy and decorated for the holidays. There were a wide selection of teas, fresh coffee, and some snacks available throughout the day. Puzzles, books, magazines, games and movies are available to borrow during your stay. Don't miss breakfast from 9-10am each day! Tony prepared us delicious food to start each day. One morning we enjoyed ham & spinach crepes with a delicious tomato basil sauce, and a hazelnut chocolate crepe for dessert. The following morning was fresh fruit, a cornbread crusted quiche, and jam filled aebleskiver for dessert.

The cabooses are located just across the street from the lake, providing a lovely view in the morning and evening. Be sure to take a ride on the tree swing, it's the tallest one I've ever seen! There is a private dock to access the lake. Within walking distance is a dive bar/BBQ joint, and also a grocery store with a surprisingly extensive liquor selection!

We loved the Casablanca Caboose. It was even better than the photos, and larger inside than I'd expected it to be. There is a piano (with "As Time Goes By" sheet music!), a bar with mini fridge, a copy of the script, and some lovely movie artwork adorning the walls. The bed was very comfy, with a recessed ceiling fan above. The hot tub was spacious and it was amazing to soak in the hot water while watching Casablanca.

We are looking forward to coming back and enjoying another caboose!
