|"Stayed with my wife over a long weekend in September of 2012. This is a really neat concept - this is an old Great Northern RR caboose that has been molded into a gorgeous waterfront cabin. The front part is the caboose (still sitting on rails!) with the roof raised 3 - 4 feet to get a vaulted ceiling appearance, and it holds the living room and the two bunk-beds. The back attachment is the rear wall of the caboose removed to add a very nicely equipped kitchen. Skylights, nice details, and some retro Great Northern memorabilia finish out the cabin.
The main attraction is the outdoors. We saw river otters feeding, a curious Harbor Seal, sea-stars, a coyote, and TONS of birds - loons, cormorants, grebes, etc."
