Location + Surroundings

Come spend some time in a real, completely refurbished railroad caboose (with all the modern amenities) just off the Blue Ridge Parkway at Orchard Gap, approximate mile 193.5.—probably the most unique lodging along the Blue Ridge Parkway! On a clear night, guests can sit outside to see thousands of stars in the higher altitude without a bunch of those bright vapor lights.

During the day, walk around the over 33 acres and hike down the hill to Grassy Creek. There, glampers can relax all by themselves among the pine & laurel thickets. On occasion, guests may see a doe and fawn run across or maybe even some turkeys or a buck. The hosts have added some horseshoe pits for fun and relaxation, too.
