Ms. Chessie Caboose

ms_chessieOur newest addition to our fleet is the Ms. Chessie caboose.  Originally built in 1971 for the Baltimore & Ohio Railroad, we were able to save it from the Florida Central Railroad where it was stored in Plymouth, FL.  Since it’s arrival in Folkston we have been hard at work restoring this piece of History into a unique lodging experience.  Plenty of room for 4 Adults and 2 children, the Ms. Chessie also has it’s own private covered deck with lights, fans, wi-fi, and trackside lighting.  Ms. Chessie is also home to Folkston’s newest webcam which you can watch live HERE.

Ms. Chessie has a huge bathroom and walk-in shower, flat screen HD TV, Air Conditioning, a small sink as well as mini-fridge.  This is a perfect setup for the die hard railfans, we have also installed a small bar area along the front side where you can setup your laptops with power available.  You won’t miss a minute of the action on the funnel!  This is as close as you can get without actually being on the tracks!  We look forward to having you!

The Roadmasters Lodge

roadmastersThe Roadmasters Lodge is an authentic lodge used by the railroad here in Folkston around the turn of the century.  It was aquired from the railroad after it was no longer needed and moved to it’s present location a bit further south in town.  The lodge is situated just north of the Family Lines System caboose.

The lodge is a bit more spacious and has it’s own full kitchen.  Enjoy trainwatching from the covered back porch or enjoy yourself in our beautifully renovated interior.  We offer DISH TV, walk-in shower, air conditioning as well as 20% off your purchase at Whistlin Dixie!  Stop in and say hello and enjoy a Blue Bell Ice Cream!
