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. Grassy Creek Cabooses are cabooses renovated into cabins for lodging/rental in the Blue Ridge mountains near Fancy Gap Virginia with private bath, kitchenette, 2 person Jacuzzi's, 32” flat screen satellite TV (w/over 145 channels), heat and air in each unit. We are convenient to I-77 near the NC/VA state line or highways 52 & 58. We're family owned and operated (live on site). Please tell your friends, family and coworkers about us.
Relive a bygone era when train travel was fun and elegant. Come relax in a real caboose built by Nickel Plate Road or Norfolk Western and reminisce about the simpler times when everything wasn't so hectic and fast paced. Travel back in time and remember how you enjoyed waving to the brakeman in the caboose window when you were sitting at the tracks waiting for the end of the train to pass.
Perhaps you'd prefer to stretch out in our large mountain cabin, we call it the Depot. It's similar in appearance to some of the old depots that once dotted the landscape at small railroad stops across the country. The 2 person jacuzzi is in the bedroom with a queen size bed and an additional queen size sleeper sofa is in the living area. The depot is very spacious with over 500 sq/ft (16'x32') and features 3 decks 2 of them covered as well as all the other amenities of the cabooses. There is also a 34' flat screen TV in the living area. You will not find a cabin this size with all the extras we provide for less.
We are members of Virginia Green. They promote recycling, conservation, energy efficiency and other environmentally friendly projects. There are bins on the decks for recycling. We do conserve electricity so we need advance notification to make sure everything is turned on for your stay. Reservations are suggested but drop ins are also welcome, just have to cut things on. Recycling requires more work but we believe it is a good cause.
Escape the hustle and bustle of urban life as you relax on one of the decks in an oversize rocker while taking in the high meadow, rolling countryside at an elevation around 3000 ft. There are a couple of oversize swings on the hill to relax and unwind while the world hurries by. Since we're just off the Blue Ridge Parkway you will find this to be a peaceful and serene setting.
Grassy Creek Cabooses is a great place for your anniversary, honeymoon or a romantic getaway. You will find our accommodations to be secluded & private. We are biker friendly.
On a clear night you can sit outside to see thousands of stars in the higher altitude without a bunch of those bright vapor lights. During the day you can walk around the 33+ acres and hike down the hill to Grassy Creek. There you can relax all by your lonesome among the pine & laurel thickets. On occasion you may see a doe & fawn run across or maybe even some turkeys or a buck. We have added some horseshoe pits for fun and relaxation.
Whether you're just stopping over while traveling the Blue Ridge Parkway or as a home base for the many local activities you will find Grassy Creek Cabooses to be a most enjoyable and memorable place to spend some time. Mabry Mill the most photographed spot on the parkway is north about 18 miles.
