Visiting historical places in Teas can be a beautiful treat but staying in one is even better. The Antler Inn in Kingsland, Texas offers you the chance to stay in one of their train cars and cabooses! The train hotel is not only historically beautiful, it is also an experience that you can get nowhere else.
The cabooses are a homage to their founding, as people would travel on trains to their original hotel all the time. Being completely remodeled, the rooms have a queen bed and two twin beds. Although the inside has been redone, they have kept as much of the original structure as possible to keep the experience as authentic as they can.
All of their train spaces are equipt with a kitchen, common area and cupola where you can sit and read a book or look out into the lake. They also have an outdoor space where you can have a picnic or grill. You won't take another train "ride" like this anywhere else!
If you happen to have a larger party, you can trade in the caboose for a train car that sleeps four people. The wooden cart is from the 1880s comes with a queen bed, two large leather couches, a kitchen and 1 1/2 baths.
