A vintage 1934 Hiawatha Dining Car (later converted to an exclusive railcar) houses this one of a kind inn. The car is richly appointed with fine furnishings and inlaid woods shined to a soft patina and harkens to the era when a journey was more than just a means to get from place to place, but an event to be savored by those fortunate enough to travel in first class luxury. The Inn is designed to afford the occupants the utmost comfort. Stretching 85 feet from end to end and featuring a 45’ long living room, the car provides plenty of room to mingle or the privacy for the occupants to enjoy their own space. The furniture is reminiscent of that found in a gentleman’s club car and with its generous proportions invites visitors to sit and relax.
