1st time here & we have been here for 3 nights & brought our grandson (who we have taken on train vacations for the past 8 years, since he was 4). This is a wonderful, relaxing place and great for anyone who loves trains! Every employee we came in contact with went out of their way to be helpful and made us feel welcome. Our grandson enjoyed the pool when we weren't out in the cabin watching the trains. They provide a golf cart for you to drive to the cabin, as it is not very far and it is also heated in the winter or you can drive your car Also, they have a live webcam on one of the TV channels where you can watch the trains from the comfort of your room. The rooms and hotel were very clean! We loved the large lobby area where my grandson & his pa pa played pool, while my mother in law & I relaxed in the comfy chairs reading and crocheting. The decor is trains, but very tasteful! Yes, lots of trains go by, but they did not disturb our sleep as they are not right next to the hotel. The only drawback we found is you really need to drive to Kirksville (around 10-12 miles) to find someplace to eat, but other than that, we will be back!
