The SpaceCome spend some time in a real, completely refurbished railroad caboose (with all the modern amenities) just off the Blue Ridge Parkway at Orchard Gap, approximate mile 193.5. Probably the most unique lodging along the Blue Ridge Parkway. Grassy Creek Cabooses are cabooses renovated into cabins for lodging/rental in the Blue Ridge mountains near Fancy Gap Virginia with private bath, kitchenette, 2 person Jacuzzi's, 32” flat screen satellite TV (w/over 145 channels), heat and air in each unit. We are convenient to I-77 near the NC/VA state line or highways 52 & 58. We're family owned and operated (we live on site)open since 2001. Please tell your friends, family and coworkers about us. Relive a bygone era when train travel was fun and elegant. Come relax in a real caboose built by Nickel Plate Road or Norfolk Western and reminisce about the simpler times when everything wasn't so hectic and fast paced. Travel back in time and remember how you enjoyed waving to the brakeman in the caboose window when you were sitting at the tracks waiting for the end of the train to pass. Perhaps you'd prefer to stretch out in our large mountain cabin, we call it the Depot. It's similar in appearance to some of the old depots that once dotted the landscape at small railroad stops across the country. The 2 person jacuzzi is in the bedroom with a queen size bed and an additional queen size sleeper sofa is in the living area. The depot is very spacious with over 500 sq/ft (16'x32') and features 3 decks 2 of them covered as well as all the other amenities of the cabooses. There is also a 34' flat screen TV in the living area. You will not find a cabin this size with all the extras we provide for less. We have a few of the remaining mining cars from the old Austinville lead mines. There is only limestone left now but the mines used to produce the lead for musket balls, cannon balls and other things during the Revolutionary War and the Civil War. The lead was taken to the Shot Tower on the New River & molten lead was dropped down the tower into the river where it immediately cooled to form a round ball. The mines were opened in 1756 and were discovered by Colonel John Chiswell. The center car was an actual dynamite car but I had to rebuild it after it was out in the weather for around half a century. We are members of Virginia Green. They promote recycling, conservation, energy efficiency and other environmentally friendly projects. There are bins on the decks for recycling. We do conserve electricity so we need advance notification to make sure everything is turned on for your stay. Reservations are suggested but drop ins are also welcome, just have to cut things on. Recycling requires more work but we believe it is a good cause. We're also installing LED lighting outdoors to reduce power demands. Escape the hustle and bustle of urban life as you relax on one of the decks in an oversize rocker while taking in the high meadow, rolling countryside at an elevation around 3000 ft. There are a couple of oversize swings on the hill to relax and unwind while the world hurries by. Since we're just off the Blue Ridge Parkway you will find this to be a peaceful and serene setting. Grassy Creek Cabooses is a great place for your anniversary, honeymoon or a romantic getaway. You will find our accommodations to be secluded & private. We are biker friendly. On a clear night you can sit outside to see thousands of stars in the higher altitude without a bunch of those bright vapor lights. During the day you can walk around the 33+ acres and hike down the hill to Grassy Creek. There you can relax all by your lonesome among the pine & laurel thickets. On occasion you may see a doe & fawn run across or maybe even some turkeys or a buck. We have added some horseshoe pits for fun and relaxation. Whether you're just stopping over while traveling the Blue Ridge Parkway or as a home base for the many local activities you will find Grassy Creek Cabooses to be a most enjoyable and memorable place to spend some time. Mabry Mill the most photographed spot on the parkway is north about 18 miles.

The SpaceYou will love this cabin that overlooks a pond with more expansive views of Orchard Gap, VA. Just off the Blue Ridge Parkway, this cabin is set in the lovely "Reflections" area. Featuring modern conveniences yet off the beaten path, you'll find this a restful space. The main level features a fully equipped kitchen, bathroom with shower, living room with music and movie entertainment, gas fireplace, and two seating areas. A main floor master bedroom has french doors and a full-size (double) bed. Each morning, stunning sunrises greet you when you awake, with a view of Orchard Gap and the pond. You'll even see deer or geese or turkeys, depending on the season. Upstairs are two additional bedrooms and a bathroom with a jacuzzi tub. One room has a queen size bed, a game-size table and 4 chairs, and a LOT of extra space. The other room has a futon when you need an additional bed when pulled out, or wonderful seating as a couch. The cabin is located in the Reflections development, surrounded by mature trees and homes sitting on a minimum of one acre. Our driveway (concrete pad and adjacent crushed rock area) accommodates 2 cars, maximum. During the day or evening, you'll enjoy sitting by the fireplace on the leather couch and chairs. Play games located in the chest, red a book, listen to music, or watch a movie. Better yet, take advantage of the large deck for outdoor (gas) grilling, enjoy a picnic on the table out back, walk on nearby trails, or build a fire to roast hot dogs and s'mores while you breathe in the mountain air and take in the expansive views. While there, you may see bluebirds, deer, or turkeys in the vicinity! Sunrises and sunsets are amazing, and the stars shine bright nearly every night. If you're looking for nature's beauty and that peaceful feeling, this is the place you'll want to visit! We love it and know you will too. We are located within minutes of the intersection of Hwy 52 and the Blue Ridge Parkway, half way between Mt. Airy, NC and Hillsville, VA. All rooms have ceiling fans and lights, electric baseboard heating, and windows to stunning views no matter which way you face. Galax, Hillsville, and Mt. Airy are within a 30 minute drive where you'll find excellent restaurants, wineries, movie theaters, shops, antiques, and other entertainment. Closer to the cabin are the Fancy Gap Deli, a new coffee and ice cream shop, Lakeview Diner, the Dollar General store, a gas station, an antique shop and plant nursery. Within 15 minutes, you can visit with the Alpacas. Drive 30 minutes north on the Parkway and you'll find historic Mabry Mill and Meadows of Dan. Drive 30 minutes south on the Parkway and you'll stumble into the Blue Ridge Music Center with Americana features, live music, and a museum. Guest AccessThe whole house is available to you with the amazing views and surroundings--situated on one acre with lush trees behind you, bluebirds and other birds singing, and deer close up. The kitchen is fully stocked with all the cooking essentials, there's firewood for an outdoor campfire (and hotdog holders!), and plenty of yard games if you decide to play. If you're inclined to stay indoors, enjoy the DVDs, board games, books, and music. Interaction with GuestsYou will be on your own to explore and enjoy! The NeighborhoodYou will not be disappointed by the vistas and views that are majestic! There are flat roads to walk on, as well as hilly areas to climb, inviting everyone into wildlife and nature that weave throughout this area. You'll see turkeys, deer, geese, and groundhogs. The pond is for catch and release fishing. Getting AroundTwo parking spots--one concrete, one gravel, are available for you. Bring your bike if you want to enjoy wonderful mountain biking on trails and off trail. Or, bring your hiking shoes to explore on foot. Other Things to NoteThis is an extraordinary place--the energy is uplifting, fresh, and clean.

We started with 2 Nickel Plate Road bay window cabooses then a few years later we added the N&W cupola caboose for our third. We stripped down the interiors of the cabooses & refurbished them ourselves. Then we added the Depot a couple of years later to accommodate more guests. We're hoping to build something for the future for our children & granddaughter. She is already working on the business at 3 years old, if she is visiting she wants to help check folks in and insists on helping clean if we need to clean while she's here. The NeighborhoodWe have a rural, high mountain meadow setting with views for miles, and probably the best sunsets around. We are just off the Blue Ridge Parkway near Fancy Gap VA.

        Come spend some time in a real, completely refurbished railroad caboose (with all the modern amenities) just off the Blue Ridge Parkway at Orchard Gap, approximate mile 193.5. Probably the most unique lodging along the Blue Ridge Parkway. Grassy Creek Cabooses are cabooses renovated into cabins for lodging/rental in the Blue Ridge mountains near Fancy Gap Virginia with private bath, kitchenette, 2 person Jacuzzi's, 32â€? flat screen satellite TV (w/over 145 channels), heat and air in each unit. We are convenient to I-77 near the NC/VA state line or highways 52 & 58. We're family owned and operated (live on site). Please tell your friends, family and coworkers about us. Relive a bygone era when train travel was fun and elegant. Come relax in a real caboose built by Nickel Plate Road or Norfolk Western and reminisce about the simpler times when everything wasn't so hectic and fast paced. Travel back in time and remember how you enjoyed waving to the brakeman in the caboose window when you were sitting at the tracks waiting for the end of the train to pass. Perhaps you'd prefer to stretch out in our large mountain cabin, we call it the Depot. It's similar in appearance to some of the old depots that once dotted the landscape at small railroad stops across the country. The 2 person jacuzzi is in the bedroom with a queen size bed and an additional queen size sleeper sofa is in the living area. The depot is very spacious with over 500 sq/ft (16'x32') and features 3 decks 2 of them covered as well as all the other amenities of the cabooses. There is also a 34' flat screen TV in the living area. You will not find a cabin this size with all the extras we provide for less. We are members of Virginia Green. They promote recycling, conservation, energy efficiency and other environmentally friendly projects. There are bins on the decks for recycling. We do conserve electricity so we need advance notification to make sure everything is turned on for your stay. Reservations are suggested but drop ins are also welcome, just have to cut things on. Recycling requires more work but we believe it is a good cause. Escape the hustle and bustle of urban life as you relax on one of the decks in an oversize rocker while taking in the high meadow, rolling countryside at an elevation around 3000 ft. There are a couple of oversize swings on the hill to relax and unwind while the world hurries by. Since we're just off the Blue Ridge Parkway you will find this to be a peaceful and serene setting. Grassy Creek Cabooses is a great place for your anniversary, honeymoon or a romantic getaway. You will find our accommodations to be secluded & private. We are biker friendly. On a clear night you can sit outside to see thousands of stars in the higher altitude without a bunch of those bright vapor lights. During the day you can walk around the 33+ acres and hike down the hill to Grassy Creek. There you can relax all by your lonesome among the pine & laurel thickets. On occasion you may see a doe & fawn run across or maybe even some turkeys or a buck. We have added some horseshoe pits for fun and relaxation. Whether you're just stopping over while traveling the Blue Ridge Parkway or as a home base for the many local activities you will find Grassy Creek Cabooses to be a most enjoyable and memorable place to spend some time.
