Ms. Chessie Caboose
Ms. Chessie caboose was originally built in 1971 for the Baltimore & Ohio Railroad, the McGurn family was able to save it from the Florida Central Railroad where it was stored in Plymouth, FL. Since itís arrival in Folkston, the McGurn family have been hard at work restoring this piece of History into a unique lodging experience. Plenty of room for 4 Adults and 2 children, the Ms. Chessie also has itís own private covered deck with lights, fans, wi-fi, and trackside lighting.

Ms. Chessie has a huge bathroom and walk-in shower, flat screen HD TV, Air Conditioning, a small sink as well as mini-fridge.

You wonít miss a minute of the action on the funnel! This is as close as you can get without actually being on the tracks!
