1926 Caboose Tiny House with Bathroom Depot in North Carolina

This post contains affiliate links.

The only thing better than a unique vacation spot is a historical vacation spot, and you get both with this 1926 Caboose Tiny House getaway in North Carolina!

The real train caboose has been transformed into a tiny home, complete with a living room, queen-sized bed, and kitchenette with a dishwasher!

But what really seals the deal is the attached bathroom “depot” which is larger than the caboose itself! Talk about luxury. The attached porch has plenty of seating so you can relax and take in the gorgeous, very private, views. Thanks to The Hive Drive Bus for sending us pictures and a video tour of their stay at the caboose!

      Amen and Thank You! One of my pet-peeves! lol…. And from a “journalist” yet. I’m not so surprised to see it on IG or FB from my many non-native American-English speaking friends, but… “Whoa” as in “Whoa, Nellie.” Yes, the horse. It’s “whoa, horsie!” Am I really that old or are young people really just that untaught? I hope, Cate, you are a younger person – it gives me hope… 😉

    This looks great! What a nice re-purposing of a caboose. I love the tracks underneath as well. Awesome bathroom.
