The Seaboard Coast Line #0877 is the first in an upcoming group of Caboose cabins to open for rental at Buffalo Creek Vacations in the Great Smoky Mountains, North Carolina.
ASHEVILLE, NC, April 09, 2016 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Buffalo Creek Vacations announces the Grand Opening of its new caboose cabin. The caboose, named the Seaboard Coast Line #0877 is the first in an upcoming group of Caboose cabins to open for rental in Clyde, NC. The Seaboard Coast Line #0877 opens in early April, 2016.
The Seaboard Coast Line #0877, a 1960's caboose, came from Fayetteville, NC. It was originally a part of the old Seaboard Coast Line Railroad which operated in the late sixties through the early eighties in the Southeastern United States.
The caboose has been completely restored to its original color and transformed into a fully functional rental cabin. The caboose cabin is about 390 square feet and has one bedroom, plus a cupola where kids can sleep with a window view of the bison. Additionally, the cabin is furnished with a full kitchen, bathroom and wireless Internet.
The Seaboard Coast Line #0877 caboose rental is the latest edition to the Buffalo Creek Vacations compound, a 65-acre bison ranch located in the Great Smoky Mountains. In addition to the newly added caboose rental, there are currently five rental cabins which range in sizes and amenities, sleeping anywhere from two to fourteen. Other activities include hiking, fishing, and swimming in the nearby Pigeon River.
"We're the first caboose lodging in North Carolina," says Cheryl Hillis, Buffalo Creek Vacations Co-Owner, "Most kids love trains and animals, so this is a great place for families to reconnect, get kids off of the electronic games and enjoy what it was like in the olden days."
The Seaboard Coast Line #0877 has been featured in recent travel related blogs and articles and was touted one of the "The Absolute Coolest, Most Unique Places to Stay in North Carolina" by Thrillist, a popular lifestyle publication.
Buffalo Creek Vacations, situated in the Great Smoky Mountains of Western North Carolina, is a family owned business with custom designed log homes and train caboose cabins that are rented out on a weekly basis. Buffalo Creek Vacations is located on a 65 private acre bison ranch which is home to not only bison, but also llamas, miniature horses and goats.
