 The Erickson family (David, Chelsie, Taylor, Jenny & Sosa)

"It all started with an idea to turn a caboose into a cabin near the Sparta bike trails.  Most of the other renovated cabooses that I'd seen looked more like a motel room than a caboose on the inside.  We wanted to keep the interior and exterior of the caboose looking like it did when it was in service so people could see what a working caboose looked like.  Of course we added all the comforts of home!  The renovations are complete and we invite you and your family to enjoy a stay in one of the most unique places you will ever experience!"    

-David Erickson, owner

"Wow!  Great Job! ..such a beautiful caboose cabin with all the conveniences one would need.  A night we will remember fondly!"  -Arlington, MA
