Cabooses at the Maplelag Resort in Callaway, MN
The Maplelag Resort has two cabooses up and clacking: the Great Northern X-85 and the Milwaukee Road 02118. They are both fully equipped with a bathroom/shower, electric heat and a double bed. Make reservations early, as these two cabooses disappear quickly! In the Switchyard, the “Station Master” has moved in three cabooses and is awaiting the arrival of two more. Although they will not be ready to go “clickety clack” this season, we cannot wait to have them “on track”. The Maplelag Resort is a destination cross country ski resort: overnight accommodations, American Plan, home cooked meals served family style, 33 miles of Pisten Bully groomed trails.

Whistle Stop Inn Bed & Breakfast in New York Mills, MN
Enjoy the ride of your life on the "Whistle Stop Limited". Our private train cars were built at the turn of the century and their historic past services include dining and railroad executive cars. Train travel has always held a sense of romance for those who choose to "ride the rails". Perhaps the greatest joy is having time for yourselves. Suspended in your cocoon you can soak in the whirlpool, enjoy some popcorn and a movie, read a book or just lie back and let the train gently rock your cares away. Experience the grandeur of the Victorian Era when you step inside the house and see the quality workmanship and restoration. Beautiful oak woodwork and turn-of-the-century antiques grace the interior. Whether staying in the house, built in 1903, or in one of the authentic railroad cars, whether a railroad buff, a lover of antiques, this place if for you.
