Idahoans are pretty creative people and we’ve got the strangest Airbnbs to prove it. Perhaps you’ve seen the Potato Hotel or this Western Saloon B&B. But today we’re highlighting yet another unique Airbnb in Idaho. Converted from an authentic 1909 train carriage, this Airbnb is as charming as can be! It’s been beautifully restored to its former glory and it’s enough to send any railway enthusiast straight to heaven by the looks of it. For an overnight experience that you’ll be thinking about for years to come, be sure to check this place out, as it is set within a very cool recreated Deary, Idaho train depot.
