Character and rustic charm abound in this authentic little red caboose, reimagined as a comfortable, cozy vacation home. Located just one block from downtown Bryson City and three miles from Great Smoky Mountains National Park, yet tucked into a private, secluded lot, the caboose is the perfect launching pad for mountain adventures. Start the day outside on the deck, enjoying the tree-lined view and planning for your day. Grab some breakfast at a local restaurant, or keep it simple with a cup of coffee courtesy of the Keurig inside.
The caboose's interior features lots of original pieces, fixtures, and flooring, yet lacks none of the modern necessities such as WiFi and central AC. The seating area features a DVD player and library, along with a convenient microwave for making movie-watching popcorn. Just beyond is the bunk room, with four cozy, stacked bunks, and just past that, you'll find the bathroom, with a modern, stand-up shower and sink. And, as if that's not enough character, the trivia fans in the group will love that the caboose was featured in the movie 'The Fugitive.' After a day of adventure, spend the evening gathered around the communal fire pit in the yard, chatting about your first perfect Smokies day - and the one to come tomorrow.
Guests looking for extra space can rent this home with The Bryson City Cottage, which is on the same property and sleeps an additional four people.
