Built in 1913, this historic site was originally the Norfolk-Southern Cafe. In the 1930s, the building was the site of grocery stores and meeting spaces, eventually becoming a popular coffee shop called "The Coffee Caboose". The space was converted into a private house, located steps from the waterfront and downtown dining and shopping. We sincerely invite you to come and enjoy our waterfront town.

The space
The Caboose is a studio unit complete with a queen bed, two futon sleeper couches, living area, kitchenette with refrigerator and gas stove, a washer and dryer and a full private bath with shower. For your convenience parking and wi-fi are complimentary. We are open to longer stays to those traveling for work and needing extended stay accomodations. We also own and operate the AirBnB property next door called "The Sleeper Car" which you can view here: https://www.airbnb.com/rooms/11677186?guests=1&adults=1
We look forward to having you and please let us know if you have any questions at all!
