Unique & Authentic Train Depot Vacation Experience
There's a train car from 1916 that has been converted into an Airbnb in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee. This thing is awesome. It still sits on wheels attached to a "track", and you even enter the caboose via t little ticket station. According to the Airbnb listing, here's a little inside on this converted train car:
Welcome, and all aboard the Smoky Mountain Station - Pigeon Forge’s first “Traincation” lodging choice! Inside this two-bedroom/one-bathroom authentic circa-1916 CSX caboose, train enthusiasts will discover an original railroad-charm-meets-luxury mountain retreat. Greeted by your very own ticket booth, you and your guests will climb aboard your very own “Traincation” retreat! The caboose is seamlessly connected to a replica Euro-inspired train depot that houses the main suite, which features a hand-carved, king-size bed, dual closets, a Smart HD TV, and direct access to a private spa deck. The home is located in the heart of Pigeon Forge within one mile of Dollywood, two blocks from a mountain coaster, and within a mile-and-a-half of top attractions such as Dolly’s Stampede, the Island Pigeon Forge, and the Old Mill District. And yes, you can hear Dolly’s Steam Engine Whistle from the Smoky Mountain Station! How nostalgic!
This caboose features an open floor plan on the inside with a comfortable living area with an electric fireplace and Smart HD TV. You'll also find a fully equipped kitchen with everything you need to enjoy a nice meal with the family.
There's plenty of room inside this old train car for the entire family too. You'll find a master bedroom with a king-size bed, closet, and another smart TV. Plus, there's a second private bedroom that has handmade bunk beds and a sound machine that plays optional railway sounds to create that perfect railroad ambiance, according to the Airbnb listing.
This thing looks beautiful and cozy. Oh, and I forgot to mention that it also has a luxurious bathroom inside too. No one wants to stay in a place with a nasty bathroom. You definitely won't have to worry about that here.
Outside, you will find a hot tub and a fire pit area with Adirondack seating for you to sit outside and take in that Smoky Mountain air.
