Train Cars Converted into Cozy Suites on Wooded Property

Set on 160 forested acres near Lake Superior, Northern Rail Traincar Suites channels the adventurous spirit of rail travel with 17 guest rooms housed within authentic, converted train cars. The train cars are connected by an enclosed platform and extend from the main lobby, which resembles a train depot. Within the suites, you'll find amenities that wouldn't typically appear in a railcar—cozy beds, phones, TVs, heating and AC, and a private bathroom.

The property's location on the North Shore puts it within easy reach of hiking trails, biking trails, waterfalls, and lighthouses. Deer and moose occasionally walk through the wooded property, and the homey décor reflects the rustic setting. Suites incorporate Victorian, oriental, Northwoods, and safari motifs. Each room features an en suite bathroom and queen and king Conductor suites have separate living areas to accommodate additional guests.

Minnesota's North Shore: Craggy Shoreline, Forested Wilderness, and Historical Lighthouses

Minnesota's North Shore runs from Duluth to the Canadian border, about 150 miles of craggy Lake Superior shoreline and dense forests. The North Shore is an official American Byway, which means it boasts spectacularly scenic roads worthy of a few hours' exploration by car. One stop worth making along the way is Split Rock Lighthouse State Park, the site of an iconic 1910 light station. Costumed interpreters give tours of the restored lighthouse, fog-signal building, and keeper's home while sharing tales of life on the shore.

By foot, check out the Superior Hiking Trail less than 10 minutes from Northern Rail Traincar Suites. The path wends through seven state parks and the Superior National Forest, home to more than 100 species and the largest gray-wolf population in the lower 48. You can easily hop from one trailhead to the next via a frequent shuttle service.
