Unique & authentic train depot vacation experience with hot yub & central AC

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!

The caboose interior is where you can enjoy a cozy den designed with industrial-inspired furniture, an electric fireplace, and Smart HD TV. An open floor plan takes you into a well-equipped, full kitchen with stainless steel appliances, custom hickory cabinets, and granite countertops. A striking cupola opens to a vaulted ceiling and allows the natural mountain light to flood the kitchen. Every square inch has been professionally designed with love and purpose!

For young (and young-at-heart) train lovers, the caboose has a second private bedroom with handmade bunkbeds and a sound machine that plays optional railway sounds to create that perfect railroad ambiance!

The caboose has one bathroom designed for the luxury traveler. A locally-sourced river stone and slate shower with Delta fixtures, and a craftsman-made, solid-poplar vanity adorned with a vintage mirror creates the perfect space to get ready for your next adventure in the Smokies!

The Smoky Mountain Station fosters outdoor living for guests with a piping hot spa and a roaring firepit with Adirondack seating to enjoy after a long day of exploring. All of this can be enjoyed under the warm glow of garden lights. The Station also encourages photo ops in and around the train! You'll spot natural boulders and lush evergreens scattered throughout the landscape. The caboose’s porches are the perfect spot for those Instagram-worthy guest shots!

The owners spared no expense in creating this incredible and unique property for the Smoky Mountains to share. From the flickering depot cupolas to the authentic touches throughout the property, adventure seekers and train lovers alike will discover priceless memories at The Smoky Mountain Station!

My son is a HUGE train fan. This lived up to what he thought it would be. No detail was spared. Very well done. My son is already asking when we can come back.

Awesome place. Very unique in that it’s part caboose and part “train station.” Very well done! Did this as a special trip for my Dad who loves all things trains. Was able to enjoy the time and quite a great to see his appreciation for the venue where we stayed.

This place is for any train enthusiast. It's an actual early 1,900's caboose with all knotty pine walls and floor; sitting area, small kitchen, then leads back to a room with bunk beds. With an adjoining section that has the bath room with a walk in shower lined with stone and a pebble floor. Going from there into the master bedroom that's in a building looking like a depot. The bed is very spacious. There's a French door from the master bedroom that leads you to a back deck that has the hot tub. There are curtains for privacy. Beyond that, you go down steel stairs to the sitting area that has chairs around a fire pit. Also a grill and pic- nic table. A privacy fence has been installed made of steel strips that goes with the theme of the experience, doesn't make you feel boxed in. It's located within a small drive to the strip of Pegion Forge or Gatlinburg; just a walk to a mountain coaster or Dollywood. Sometimes can here the whistle of the steam train from the park. It's a one of kind stay for the area and will be back.

Very cozy and unique I would definitely recommend
Shannon W. Sep 2022
This place was extremely nice and clean. Close to everything. It’s just on a main road and you can hear traffic. It would be nice if there was a fence behind for a little privacy when you are grilling or having a fire.
Manager response:
Thank you for your feedback, Shannon. We are delighted to hear that you enjoyed your stay and that traffic did not detract from it. We have forwarded your comments to our owner, and we are pleased to report that they are being considered for the future of this very special property. We hope you’ll return for another visit!

It was like going down the train tracks right down to the music. The beds were so comfortable and every thng was clean and neat. The shower was a foot massage with the little stonesl go out the French doors of the bedroom to the hot tub.. I will never forget my stay want to do it again.
Timothy K. Jul 2022
We really enjoyed our visit here with our train-obsessed son. There are several nice features of this home, as well as some things that could be improved.

What we loved:
-Easy to find, with a great location very close to downtown Pigeon Forge and Dollywood
-Easy check in and check out
-Home was clean when we arrived
-Everything feels new
-Great outdoor space with hot tub, fire pit and chairs, and picnic table
-The train theme is very well done
-Comfortable beds

Things to be aware of before booking:
-This home has a lot of exterior doors, which is generally convenient. In the king bedroom, the exterior doors have deadbolts up high and out of children's reach. But in the children's bedroom, there are no deadbolts—just a relatively easy-to-open door handle. For that reason, we were not comfortable having our young child sleep in that room alone.
-When it is very hot out, the A/C is not completely efficient. We were there during very high heat, and the temperature of the home never got down to what we set the thermostat at. This seems to be mostly because of the nature of the home and the fact that it likely doesn't have a lot of insulation, as the A/C worked well on the one night that was cooler. The bedrooms do not have fans, which would be nice for hotter nights.
-The living room does not have a couch—just a padded bench and matching chair. For that reason, it was not a very comfortable space to relax and watch TV.
-The home is located right on a busy highway. For us, this wasn't an issue, but it's definitely something to consider if you are looking for a quieter location.
Manager response:
Timothy, thank you for the review of your stay! We are so glad you enjoyed Smoky Mountain Station and the location. The local team appreciates the comments and suggestions to help us provide a great stay for our guests. The bee hive has been removed. The home is on regular extermination to control pests. We hope you will return soon. Thank you!

The craftsmanship and attention to detail was amazing! Very convenient location to all the areas of The Smokey’s. Would recommend it highly to anyone for a great get away. Wish we had more time. The only 2 suggestions I would make is to quieten the heat pump and add a make up mirror with lights for the Mrs. We do plan to make a return vacation.

Everything about this stay was perfect- from the location to Dollywood, fire pit, private hot tub, decor and ambiance- You won't be disappointed. Our family absolutely loved all the details of this place. We will definitely stay again.
Jameson C. Jan 2022
Everything about Smoky Mountain Station was perfect! The cabin itself is gorgeous, super clean, and had everything we needed. The location was great, just outside of Dollywood and only minutes from Gatlinburg. We couldn't help but smile everytime we drove up the drive. I would recommend the caboose cabin to everyone and will definitely revisit soon!
