Celebrations

From $190.00 / night

We get the very best ideas from our guests and someone who stays here regularly suggested we have a room we can change for each season or to re-theme if someone has a special celebration. That caboose is Celebrations (formerly Rosebud).

Whatever the season, this caboose gets very special decor to celebrate that holiday or special occasion. During certain times of year, we can also re-decorate it for your very special occasion such as an anniversary, birthday or very special celebration.

In November, 2011 we redecorated Celebrations once again with all new lighting throughout. There are reading lights over the bed and unique floral lights flanking the bay window. We sourced a beautiful antique armoire from our friends at Studio Antiques. There are now two cozy wingback chairs for reading. There's also a brand new flat screen TV with both DVD and VHS player for your viewing pleasure.

Once it's time to really relax, fill up the Jacuzzi tub for a comfortable soak. Of course there is the fabulous featherbed as well.

This caboose is unique in having a dining nook with a table. While some might come here to work (for shame!) it's a great place to play one of the many games we have in our collection. We've even had guests build a model of a VW bus here.

We have decorations for all sorts of very special occasions from birthdays to anniversaries, honeymoons, babymoons, and more. While Celebrations is decorated for certain holidays throughout the year, but we can also decorate it for your special occasion at no additional charge. We've found that a lot of people have given gift certificates to the Celebrations caboose already, knowing that a special occasion will be that much more so.

Celebrations Caboose History

  • Celebrations started its life as a Caboose on the Southern Pacific rail line. Southern Pacific built these cabooses with bay windows instead of a cupola on the top. Since it's one of the first cabooses on the property, many of the gauges, air lines and electrical lines are still in place from its service on the railroad. We've highlighted these fittings in a beautiful wine-colored hue and restored all their copper brackets. That same color extends to the trim along the walls. There is a new climate control system and all-new Jacuzzi tub system.

Orient Express

From $220.00 / night

If you've ever dreamed of a journey on the famed Orient Express, our Orient Express themed caboose is for you. The beautiful art deco mirror behind the Jacuzzi tub for two is the focus of this elegant room. Black, teal and gold are the colors that complete this room and transport you in time to a very nice place. A private deck with views of Clear Lake and Mount Konocti in the distance enrich the journey to relaxation. The second-story cupola is the perfect spot to enjoy a beautiful sunset over Clear Lake.

Orient Express Caboose History

If you've hummed along to the song Atchison, Topeka and the Santa Fe you have sung about this caboose, which was a member of that railroad's family. This is a very traditional caboose from the outside, while being completely refurbished on the inside. It features a second-story cupola from which the "caboose man" used to wave. We believe this caboose was built in Kansas City just after World War ][ and was used in high-speed freight trains, traveling all over the USA before it retired at the Featherbed Railroad.

La Loose Caboose

From $220.00 / night

If you've ever thought about a trip to New Orleans for Mardi Gras, perhaps getting sidetracked in La Loose Caboose might be just the thing. As you enter your caboose, you are warned by the New Orleans Police Department to Beware of Pickpockets and Loose Women.

Once inside, there is a burgundy Jacuzzi tub for two and a bar where you can see beautiful Clear Lake. The queen-size bed sits under a mirrored ceiling in La Playpen which is highlighted by a neon sign denoting the area. Marbled floors and golden crown molding round out the appearance of a New Orleans bordello.

The original artwork comes to us courtesy of the government's auction at the Mustang Ranch, where a beautiful and appropriately tacky nude on velvet completes the bordello theme. The second-story cupola is the perfect place to watch the sun rise or set if you don't feel like leaving the room and enjoying the private deck overlooking the Lake.

Wine Country

From $190.00 / night

With almost 30 super premium wineries just a short drive away, it only makes sense that one of our Caboose Rooms is a tribute to these local vintners. Above your Jacuzzi tub is a beautiful mural of the wine country to help you relax. The grape vine furniture has been lovingly crafted by hand and stenciled clusters of grapes adorn the walls.

The table, crafted by Wine Country Woods, started life as a wine barrel. Your seat covers, too, are former wine barrel lids. Bring along your favorite bottle of wine and you can enjoy it while luxuriating in the two-person Jacuzzi tub.

With oak floors and a mini wine press up in the Cupola, this is a terrific place to celebrate a trip to the wine country in style.

Casablanca

From $190.00 / night

Transform yourself from the peaceful surroundings of Clear Lake into the past when Bogie and his leading ladies ruled the silver screen. Step into Casablanca and stroll by the upright piano in Rick's Cafe Americain, awash in the glow of the red neon sign. Over on the corner you might spot Bogie's hat and coat on the antique coat rack.

But they didn't have it this good - there's a Jacuzzi tub in the caboose and peach-tinted mirrors sandblasted with palm trees.

Feeling musical? The sheet music from the movie is on the piano across from the bar, so you can "play it again, Sam." Or, maybe just a restful sleep in the featherbed after a sampling of the local wines from the over 30 wineries in the area.

If you've forgotten a story detail, you can even watch Casablanca on your in-room video system.

Whatever your passion, Here's Looking at You, Kid.

Casablanca Caboose History

Casablanca started its life as a Caboose on the Southern Pacific rail line. Southern Pacific built these cabooses with bay windows instead of a cupola on the top. This means this caboose is a little bigger in the middle. We believe that this caboose served on local lines up in Northern California and was built right after World War ][.

If you're looking to surprise that special someone for an anniversary, birthday or even a honeymoon, the Lovers Caboose could be just the thing! Tony & Peggy would love to help you with this celebration by placing petals on the bed, or arranging for some locally-crafted exceptional truffles.

With its canopied bed and peach colored mirrored accents, many people have referred to the Lovers Caboose as the Honeymoon Caboose.

Part of the uniqueness of the Lovers Caboose is the private Jacuzzi tub, our only caboose where the tub is nestled away in its own private room. Bring along a bottle of the bubbly - there are a few unique local sparkling wines that you can pick-up along the way.

Right outside your door there is a little park setting with a fountain and the shade of one of Northern California's famous redwood trees. It's a beautiful setting to spark some romance or just relax.

TropiCaboose

From $150.00 / night

Stepping into the TropiCaboose is like walking into a resort along the shores of the ocean in a place like Key West or Hawaii. The entire room is light and airy with inviting wicker furniture, beautiful hardwood floors and a light, coconut color scheme that really puts you in the mood to enjoy a margarita.

Instead of shoes, you might find yourself donning flip flops and thinking about the trade winds lightly blowing across Clear Lake. If you weren't so relaxed already, you might want to stroll outside and walk down the dock to feel the warm winds against your skin.

Look up and we've caught a beautiful hand-made Maherajah water ski that's been trapped with some shells in a fishing net. There are margarita glasses waiting for some lime, grenadine and tequila. The bed spread is a beautiful Dean Miller piece and there is even a Tiki button! You'll just have to stay with us to find out what that does.

Is that Margaritaville playing in the background? Have you stepped into a tropical paradise, or are you just in the TropiCaboose? It's up to your imagination.

TropiCaboose History

TropiCaboose started its life as a Caboose on the Southern Pacific rail line during the Great Depression. It is the oldest caboose on the property and still features some of the original fittings for a genuine railroad experience. The seats in the cupola have been redecorated, but are still intact with two facing booths perched way up high. This is the perfect spot to watch the sun rise or set with a cool beverage or some hot coffee. The view is great from up there!
