Authentic Fully Restored 1946 Bangor Aroostook Caboose

Step back in time and stay in one of New England’s most unique accommodations perched up a hill overlooking the New England Central Railroad Railyard, our 1946 Bangor Aroostook Caboose.  We have meticulously restored this gem, authentically so that you do not lose sight, the fact you are in a caboose.  

Sit at the original desk and take in one of the many books, or  sit up in the copola and sip a cup of fresh coffee and oversee the Railroad hard at work.  At night sit around the fire pit and roast s’mores that we have provided and talk about the day’s adventure.


Unique Experience

Palmer is a railroad town. At one point, it was known as “The Town of Seven Railroads.” These days, there are four railroads that run through Palmer. The Bangor and Aroostook line ran from 1891 to 2003.

Steaming Tender Restaurant

One of the most unique dining spots in Massachusetts, the Steaming Tender restaurant is located in the Palmer Railroad Station. When the Palmer Railroad Station was built in the 19th century, it was the 5th largest station in the United States.
