When I found this place on the internet, I thought I would book it as a surprise for my partner and not tell him until we got there and when he saw the trains he loved it!!! it is so wonderful. You have to have a real vision to put this place together. It is more comfortable than a lot of hotels that I have slept it and warmer too, I can promise you that. A variety of foods are available for breakfast. There is a fantastic view of the Chena River and Mike and Susan are very welcoming and friendly and are up for a good ole chat. It is nice to sit around and look at everything that is put together in these carriages as it is an art. If you like to stay at places other than the norm and like things a bit different to the norm book in here, you will love it.
