“Absolutely fabulous place for a family”

I stayed in the caboose with my husband and our two kids and we had a blast. Rusty and his family are great hosts, our kids even spent some time playing together. Our teenager was thrilled to get to sleep up in the loft, she loved the ladder system used to get up there. The younger daughter slept on the couch, so there is room for a family of 4 that isn't too sick of each other. The girls made friends with the horses next door, and Rusty's dogs came and hung out with us on the deck. We'll definitely stay here again if we're ever back in the area.

James gave us a warm welcome and useful advice as visitors to Yosemite and Oakhurst. The Little Red Caboose has been converted into a great holiday accommodation in a wonderful, peaceful setting. It was everything we had hoped for and more too.... Thanks, James!

My husband, 12 years old daughter and had a lovely time at the caboose. We spent 2 nights, had a full day in Yosemite and after the long hike the jacuzzi was the best. The place was very clean and so peaceful. Had dinner under the stars on the deck, warmed by the fire. Fabulous location and charming host. Would love to return. Thank you Rusty!

Great lil cozy home in this restored caboose. I will definitely return. The reading loft and bathtub are great, and we had rain so was perfect to stay in. I look forward to returning in great weather and hanging out on deck with grill & fire pit. Any tiny home lovers will love this gem!
Great proximity to Yosemite.

We truly enjoyed our stay at the Little Red Caboose. it was nice and surprisingly spacious for two people. It came equipped with lots of modern amenities and all the basics we would have needed from any hotel suite. I loved the spa tub, the marble bathroom, the in-room a/c unit, and spacious deck. We had a great time visiting with the dogs. The neighborhood was less wooded than I was expecting, but a close 15-30 min drive to Sierra National Forrest and Yosemite parks. There was plenty of room for a whole family to stay. The family that owned the property was helpful with directions and adding nice personal touches around the Caboose to make you feel welcome. The bed wasn't anything to write home about, but comfortable enough for a good night sleep. It was clean, non-smoking, and a fun, unique experience overall. the weather gets really warm in the mid-afternoon, so the a/c unit is a must in a big metal box, but the area gets so cool at night you can just leave the windows open and stay cool in the summer. We highly recommend this place.
