The highlight of this place is by far the location. I loved that the railcar was on a secluded road (hardly any cars went by) and across from Skaneateles Lake (great views). The dock was huge, great for the 6 of us that stayed there. The train car itself was very cool, well kept…

If you want a charming lakeside retreat from civilization this is definitely the place. Dock is amazing and incredibly beautiful and the car has plenty of bed space.

If this place comes up after you put in your filters, and it is available, then no need to look anywhere else, and book here. The large area outside to sit and enjoy a fire is amazing. The deck on the water is even more amazing, and all the furniture in both spots for hanging out…

This was a wonderful stay and experience! Very unique location that is much larger than we had even anticipated, so that was a pleasant surprise! Very comfortable beds and space for a group to relax inside and outside.
