Vintage 1920’s Caboose Turned Tiny Home Vacation

This post contains affiliate links.

This lovingly-restored 1920s Caboose used to travel the Cotton Belt Route, and now sits on a large plot on Lake Limestone in Texas and acts as a nightly Airbnb rental.

It has a giant deck on one side for eating outdoors or relaxing, as well as a fire pit for s’mores. Inside it sleeps up to five between a single bed, queen bed and fold-out couch. You’ll also find an equipped kitchen that makes it easy to cook your own meals, or picture yourself living in this beauty full-time!

You can book your stay over at Airbnb.

    Very nice; we used to have a neighbor in Ottawa, KS that owned a Caboose too. Not something you see as much these days, so much for history.
