Description of Glamping Units

Nestled in the Cascade Mountain foothills of Central Washington, this alternative accommodation was originally constructed in 1909 by the Chicago, Milwaukee, St. Paul & Pacific Railroad and served until 1974 as temporary housing for men who had the job of getting trains over some of the most hazardous tracks in the country. Now featuring an extensive collection of historic photographs, artifacts, and railroad memorabilia, the lovingly renovated inn has been placed on the National Register of Historic Places.

This glamping site offers four genuine caboose cars that have been renovated for a glampers comfort while preserving their charm and character. Accommodations range from economical to exquisite, and each captures the essence of the bygone era of railroading. Antique furniture and railroad memorabilia are featured throughout.
