Oakhurst, California
Just twenty minutes from the south entrance to Yosemite National Park. Our caboose is located on 5 acres in the Sierra Foothills just outside of Oakhurst, CA. With a queen sized bed and full bathroom including jacuzzi tub, you can relax in style. After a nice bath, sit out on the 300 sq. ft. deck with your favorite beverage. Barbecue and rejuvinate after a nice hike in Yosemite or just get away from the city for a while. The interior has been newly remodeled and is perfect for a romantic get away or a weekend trip with a couple of friends. Hardwood floors and kitchenette with granite counter top make it easy for you to cook in if you choose. But if you don't want to cook, there are many fine restaurants in Oakhurst or Mariposa. Don't worry about bringing a doggy bag home, we have a fridge for that as well. The caboose will... Read more

2 adults and 2 teenagers just about squeezed into The Little Red Caboose which was very clean and well equipped. Didn't spend too much time inside anyway, we BBQ'd and ate on the deck and found we had plenty of visitors (Austin the friendly cattle dog and numerous cats). There is a large VONS supermarket but if you don't want...

Quiet property. Owners friendly/ non intrusive. Its definitely a caboose. First impression when we pulled in was disappointing. Old abandoned Travel Trailer in driveway. Two broken down cars in neighbors yard. Deck needs maintenance and is an eye sore. Full, Stinking garbage can. Lumber and debris strewn around front in the yard. Inside was clean and nice. Shower was great,...

We just left here this morning! Stayed two nights on our California road trip. Rusty and his entire family were gracious and wonderful hosts, including the pets :) Located in Oakhurst, which is a cozy mountainside town close to Yosemite and Bass Lake. Far enough on the outskirts of town, and close enough for convenience like grocery stores, sporting good...
