Texas Train Hotel

Is the Bonnie Brook Rail Car the only train accommodations in Texas?

Certainly not! If you're into trains and you live in Texas, there are lots of amazing opportunities to ride, dine, and even spend the night in these fascinating forms of transportation. In the heart of Texas Hill County, Country Woods Inn in Glen Rose has a renovated Santa Fe boxcar you can rent for the night, and it’s one of the most unique overnight stays the Lone Star State has to offer. Secluded and private, this renovated Santa Fe boxcar is not only located in the most unforgettable setting but also promises to whisk you back in time to the heyday of railroad travel. Inside, you'll be met with an atmosphere just as charming as the exterior; the car is brimming with train-themed decor, from antique railroad lanterns to vintage signs, and even a book all about locomotives for the little ones to read with wide-eyed fascination. In terms of what to expect from the Texas train "hotel" itself, you'll be pleased to find that the boxcar features two sets of twin, log cabin bunk beds, sleeping a total of four. Central air and heat, a sitting area, and an old-fashioned bathroom with a clawfoot tub provide all the creature comforts you know and love without sacrificing the traditional rusticity of camping. There's even a full-sized kitchen, too!

Don't feel like sleeping aboard a train? With accommodations ranging from more traditional cabins to vintage Airstreams and even a land yacht, Country Woods Inn is home to the most unique stays in Texas!
