Whistle Stop Inn Bed and Breakfast in
New York Mills, Minnesota
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 or just someone who enjoys the unusual, this place if
for you. The Inn sits on an acre of land, nestled among towering 150 year old
pine and oak trees.
Whether you're planning a business trip, a honeymoon, a slumber party, observing
an anniversary, or just an "escape" from the ordinary, the Whistle Stop is at
your service. And don't forget your "Golden Spike" at the end of your memorable
Built in 1903 as a Day Coach it originally had 80 seats and served on the North
Coast Limited between Minnesota and the state of Washington. Purchased from the
Northern Pacific in the 1930's for use as a hunting shack it later became a
house for a family of 4 in the 1940's. Ultimately it too was used as a storage
shed until it became the star of the
"Whistle Stop Limited Railroad".
Built in 1909 as a club dining car, used by the Northern Pacific R.R. until the
1960's. Given to a retiring railroad man who worked at the tie factory in
Brainerd who used it (or MISused it) for a storage shed until the roof gave way.
After a full year of non-stop expenditures (labor and dollars) we have restored
it to its' original opulence and now it's yours to enjoy.
