You Can Stay In A Train Near Austin That Theodore Roosevelt Once Used

Talk about making history.
The 1894 Private Pullman Palace Car Is A Historic Texas Airbnb

While most of us get around by car these days, trains were once the main form of transportation and unfortunately, most locals never got to experience that time. If you're looking to take a trip back in time, look no further than the 1894 Private Pullman Palace Car in Texas, an Airbnb located in Fredericksburg. The car was once used by Theodore Roosevelt himself, so you know it's historic.

1st Class Lodging is the Superhost of the 1894 Private Pullman Palace Car, one of the most unique stays listed on Airbnb.

For $250 a night before any additional fees, you can experience what it was like to walk through the very same locomotive Teddy Roosevelt did.

According to the listing, he used it for one of his trips to the 6666 Ranch in North Texas. Who knew he once made trips out to this part of the Lone Star State?

Not only will you be blessed with the Airbnb itself, but its location is unbeatable thanks to being just miles away from Austin, the Capitol of Texas.

The locomotive holds two guests and has one bedroom and 1.5 bathrooms.

The bedroom looks like the design inspiration came from the Oval Office itself, and the rest of the interior screams "antique."

Wifi, a coffee and tea bar, a small fridge, and Direct TV are just a few of the amenities you'll enjoy while here.

This really is an ideal spot for newcomers of the glorious state of Texas.
