Full disclosure: I'm a train fan so that may have colored my review a bit. But only a bit.
This is a cute "concept hotel"; each "room" is a real caboose. We stayed in "Celebrations" which has a jacuzzi. The room was great. The staff was great. The view & ambience was great (check out the swing in the common yard area) and they have their own dock for fishing and sunset worshipping. The grounds are kept in great shape and the cabooses have all the usual amenities except for Internet access. For that you have to go to the main building or nearby to get a signal strong enough to use. Given that cabooses are made of metal there's zero chance of getting a signal inside, even when your caboose is the closest to the main building (as ours was).
If you're the typical carnivore male half of a couple and it's your mate that's the big B&B fan then you'll be a little disappointed with the breakfast. On our last day it was quiche and chicken sausage. Only American coffee is served - no espresso/capuccino/hot chocolate. And neither morning's breakfast included any kind of bread or pastry ala European style breakfast. On the other hand there are a couple of good breakfast places down the road and a spectacular Thai restaurant (try the Spicy Lamb special if it's available - it's awesome).
