Amazing place to stay! Donnie was fantastic to deal with and I would highly recommend this unique experience on the Blue Ridge Parkway.

What a fun little adventure we had. We enjoyed sitting in the rockers on the porch and watching stars all evening. What a beautiful view! The caboose had everything we needed for the night.

I had the absolute best weekend. It's a gorgeous location. Couldn't ask for anything better. The cabooses are beautiful and so unique. Everything was extremely clean and neat. They offer everything you need except for your food. The awesome scenery is spectacular. I could just go and sit in those rockers for hours of peace and tranquilly. Donnie and Carol were the best hosts. They reside on the property and would do anything to help you. Made some great memories and hope to be visiting again soon to make more. If you need to get away from the stress of your life please go to Fancy Gap and visit the Grassy Creek Cabooses.

Loved this little red caboose. It was so peaceful. Very clean. Even has a jacuzzi tub to relax in after a long day of driving or hiking. Great location, away from the sounds of the city. We heard the sounds of nature. Would stay again.

This place was awesome! We were traveling home after a vacation at the beach. Donnie gave great directions and we found the place with no problem. Check in was so easy! The caboose was great, it was very clean and I am a cleanliness freak. It had everything you could need to make a quick dinner, but we opted to eat out at a local place. The two person jacuzzi looked like it would be fun. The bed and pillows were very comfortable and we had a wonderful nights sleep. We will definitely be back!

Want to stay in a comfortable and unique place in the middle of a stunning countryside? This is the spot! How great to stay inside a caboose with a jacuzzi! At night you can sit on the porch outside and enjoy the star show and the quiet!

Donnie is everything you could hope for in a host. Friendly, responsive and provides a great service. My wife and I were delighted that the caboose was spacious yet cozy, the bed was very comfortable with a special foam topper and every detail was thought of. They even had a corkscrew and wine glasses there for when we needed. Thank you! We'd love to return.

A very unique way to experience the Blue Ridge and Virginia in general. We loved our caboose - it was clean and comfortable and despite being understandably small, still contained everything you could need (and a jacuzzi) for your stay. The cabooses have been lovingly restored and every detail has been thought through. The bed was incredibly comfortable! The scenery around the caboose is stunning, a great place to stop for a few days. Donnie, our host, was an absolute delight, very helpful, and we had some great chats. Thanks for a great visit!

Thanks for allowing us to enjoy a piece of your wonderful country side. Enjoyed watching the sun set and the storms roll through. Excellent base for our exploration and hiking on the Blue Ridge Parkway.

Such a great escape from the city!! Donnie is super friendly and helpful. We will definitely stay here again if we are in the area again.

Cool place to stop and stay. Good diners nearby and nice country views to see all around the area. Caboose was clean and more spacious than I had expected. You almost forget your in a caboose and not a hotel!

I loved staying here! The hosts were super friendly and helpful. The bed was very comfy, especially after a long drive. The view is gorgeous and we spent quite a bit of time on the porch and the hanging swing. It's very serene and has everything that you might need for a little getaway. I would definitely stay again if I have the chance!

My wife and I have stayed here a few times and the cabooses have become our go-to stopover on our way back from the OBX. We've stayed in all three of the train cars and each has its own unique charm. It's amazing to see the work, craftsmanship and detail that went into restoring each one. We've been in both cold and hot weather and they are always very comfortable-- and you could not ask for a more scenic view! Right off the Blue Ridge Parkway and not far from the interstate, it is serene and tranquil but still pretty convenient. Donnie and his family are always very friendly and helpful, but allow you your privacy.

Super peaceful setting. Donnie was easy to work with, and we would definitely recommend staying there! It was a great getaway with a lovely view.

What a unique experience staying in an actual caboose. Very quiet location with a great view. We also had a gorgeous sunset for our one night stay. Donnie is a gracious and friendly host. I would certainly stay there again. As soon as we pulled up Donnie was there to greet us. Making both check in and out a super easy and enjoyable experience.

I booked this spot for parents. They loved it! Donnie was so accommodating and they will definitely be back!

We stayed one night on our way from Nashville to NYC and had such a lovely time. Check in and out was super easy, and Donnie was very friendly. The caboose is one of three that are at the top of a beautiful hill just a few miles off the Blue Ridge Parkway. We watched the sunset from the swinging chair and it was breathtaking. If you want a place to really soak in the natural beauty of the area this is it. The caboose was clean and had all the things you might need- plates, utensils, and most importantly a wine opener. The bed was very comfortable and the hot tub was a wonderful way to relax after hours of driving. A really unique part of our trip.

You have to experience this little piece of heaven on the hills of Virginia.All the amenities you could ask for and you sleep in a caboose!

The caboose is really great. It’s a fantastic drive on the blue ridge pkwy to get there and its a really cool way to spend the night. It had a porch with an epic view and chairs to enjoy it. The room had everything I expect a room to have and the bed very comfortable. Highly recommended.

Everything was great about this place. Charming, unique, great hospitality, perfect for the Blue Ridge Parkway traveler!
