Our rental consists of two fully renovated cabooses. The first has a full kitchen, dining area and living room. Walk across the covered porch to the second caboose which has a full bath with shower/tub, sleeping area with futon and a bedroom with queen sized bed. Climb up and enjoy the cozy cupola sitting area. The cabooses are minutes away from the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, Harrah's Cherokee Casino, Great Smoky Mountain Railroad, whitewater rafting, mountain bike trails and fishing.
The Cabooses sit right on the banks of the Tuckasegee River and on the tracks of the Great Smoky Mountain Railroad. Sit on the front porch and watch for Bald Eagles flying over the river. Riverside fire pit and picnic area for roasting hot dogs and marsh mellows. A covered BBQ grill area and another picnic table are available for those rainy days.
Guests have full access to both cabooses. Walk across the railroad tracks to access the riverfront fire pit. The tracks also make a nice riverfront trail. Don't worry-the Great Smoky Mountain Railroad trains travel very slowly, you will have plenty of time to get off of the tracks.

I live close by and enjoy meeting my guests. I am always happy to provide area info for things to see and do.
There is also a guide book to area attractions in the caboose.
This property allows me to enjoy 2 of my favorite pastimes at once. Have been a train lover since early childhood and am an avid whitewater boater. I can sit on the front porch of my own caboose and watch The Great Smoky Mountain railroad trains go by. I can also sit on the front porch and listen to the sounds of the Tuckasegee River.
