Come spend some time in a real, completely refurbished railroad caboose (with all the modern amenities) just off the Blue Ridge Parkway at Orchard Gap, approximate mile 193.5. Probably the most unique lodging along the Blue Ridge Parkway. We now have disc golf baskets and discs as well as cornhole sets.

Come spend some time in a real, completely refurbished railroad caboose (with all the modern amenities) just off the Blue Ridge Parkway at Orchard Gap, approximate mile 193.5. Probably the most unique lodging along the Blue Ridge Parkway. Grassy Creek Cabooses are cabooses renovated into cabins for lodging/rental in the Blue Ridge mountains near Fancy Gap Virginia with private bath with shower, kitchenette, 2 person Jacuzzi in this unit, 32” flat screen satellite TV (w/over 145 channels), heat and air in each unit. We are convenient to I-77 near the NC/VA state line or highways 52 & 58. The renewable energy for Grassy Creek Cabooses comes from a hydroelectric power plant on the New River off I77 at exit 24. We're family owned and operated (we live on site) open since 2001. Please tell your friends, family and coworkers about us.

Relive a bygone era when train travel was fun and elegant. Come relax in a real caboose built by Nickel Plate Road or Norfolk Western and reminisce about the simpler times when everything wasn't so hectic and fast paced. Travel back in time and remember how you enjoyed waving to the brakeman in the caboose window when you were sitting at the tracks waiting for the end of the train to pass.

Perhaps you'd prefer to stretch out in our large mountain cabin, we call it the Depot. It's similar in appearance to some of the old depots that once dotted the landscape at small railroad stops across the country. The 2 person jacuzzi is in the bedroom with a queen size bed and an additional full size futon is in the living area. The depot is very spacious with over 500 sq/ft (16'x32') and features 3 decks 2 of them covered as well as all the other amenities of the cabooses. There is also a 34' flat screen TV in the living area. You will not find a cabin this size with all the extras we provide for less.

We have a few of the remaining mining cars from the old Austinville lead mines. There is only limestone left now but the mines used to produce the lead for musket balls, cannon balls and other things during the Revolutionary War and the Civil War. The lead was taken to the Shot Tower on the New River & molten lead was dropped down the tower into the river where it immediately cooled to form a round ball. The mines were opened in 1756 and were discovered by Colonel John Chiswell. The center car was an actual dynamite car but I had to rebuild it after it was out in the weather for around half a century.

We do conserve electricity so we need advance notification to make sure everything is turned on for your stay. Reservations are suggested but drop ins are also welcome, just have to cut things on.

Escape the hustle and bustle of urban life as you relax on one of the decks in an oversize rocker while taking in the high meadow, rolling countryside at an elevation around 3000 ft. There are a couple of oversize swings on the hill to relax and unwind while the world hurries by. Since we're just off the Blue Ridge Parkway you will find this to be a peaceful and serene setting.
Grassy Creek Cabooses is a great place for your anniversary, honeymoon or a romantic getaway. You will find our accommodations to be secluded & private. We are biker friendly.

On a clear night you can sit outside to see thousands of stars in the higher altitude without a bunch of those bright vapor lights. During the day you can walk around the 33+ acres and hike down the hill to Grassy Creek. There you can relax all by your lonesome among the pine & laurel thickets. On occasion you may see a doe & fawn run across or maybe even some turkeys or a buck.

Whether you're just stopping over while traveling the Blue Ridge Parkway or as a home base for the many local activities you will find Grassy Creek Cabooses to be a most enjoyable and memorable place to spend some time. Mabry Mill the most photographed spot on the parkway is north about 18 miles.

We bought the land around 1997 and built the entire business from the rails/ground up on our own. We started with 2 Nickel Plate Road bay window cabooses then a few years later we added the N&W cupola caboose for our third. We stripped down the interiors of the cabooses & refurbished them ourselves. Then we added the Depot a couple of years later to accommodate more guests. We're hoping to build something for the future for our children & grandchildren.

We're hoping to build something for the future for our children & granddaughter. She is already working on the business at 3 years old, if she is visiting she wants to help check folks in and insists on helping clean if we need to clean while she's here.
