Come stay in our cute tiny house caboose in beautiful Joseph, Oregon. We've converted the caboose into a comfortable self-contained tiny house complete with kitchen, shower, and toilet. We can comfortably accommodate up to 4 adults with one double bed and two bunk beds. A little bit hippie and a little bit country, community oriented and ALL are welcome! PLEASE READ THRU ENTIRE DESCRIPTION TO MAKE SURE YOU WILL BE COMFORTABLE Check us out on Instagram @thedepotjoseph and www.thedepotjoseph.com

The space
The Caboose is located at The Depot - a multi-space Airbnb property that features four rental spaces, a small coffeeshop and store, a small farm and herb garden, a BBQ food truck, and a hub for yoga classes and women's empowerment workshops. We also host live music and events throughout the summer! We are open to our local community as well as guests, so it is a very busy, extremely fun place to hang and meet new friends! While each Airbnb rental space is private, there are many shared outdoor spaces and lots of people, events, and things going on around the property. The cafe/coffeeshop is open Thursday - Sunday from 8am until 2pm - we also offer packed lunches for hikes/picnics/adventures! Z’s BBQ food truck is open Thursday - Monday from 4pm until they run out. Quiet hours at night are respected for everyone to enjoy a good nights rest.
Our property has a train depot that was built in 1906 which used to be located in Enterprise, Oregon. It was moved in 1980 to its present location, one mile north of the town of Joseph and now serves as our small coffeeshop and store as well as housing for us and our Depot volunteers. We are a mother-daughter(s) team with an interest in re-purposing, alternative building methods, and fun places to stay! We have been renovating and creating unique spaces for the past four years for our guests to enjoy while vacationing in this beautiful part of the country.
The caboose is completely self-contained with a small fridge, electric stove top burners, table and stools, a shower, linens and towels, cooking utensils, and an RV style toilet room. There is one main bedroom with a full size bed with a memory foam mattress. There are two twin bunk beds which are separated from the main bedroom with drapery. The bunk beds are higher than usual (see photos), so we have “bumper boards” available for younger guests. The caboose also has a large covered deck for guests to hang out on and enjoy our beautiful sunsets. We have a community area where guests can use our firepit and charcoal grill.
It should be noted the caboose is a tiny house and the space is compact and, like many tiny houses, the caboose is run on an environmentally friendly grey-water system (meaning the used sink/shower water goes back into the ground in the form of a mulch basin). The RV toilet tank is pumped once a week-on Mondays. Our location is one mile outside of town, located on the main road into Joseph making it very convenient to get around and basically impossible to get lost, but the road can also be very busy during the day so please pull in and out of the driveway with extra care. There is also a busy campground/RV park located to the south side of our property. We are somewhat rural in our location and have stunning views of the Wallowa Mountains and beautiful sunsets.
