The Deal

$229 for a Bed-and-Breakfast Package for Two ($329 Value)

  • Five-course dinner on a moving train
  • Overnight stay in a two-bed room in a sleeper car
  • Hot breakfast

After arriving at the station between 5 p.m. and 5:30 p.m., couples drop overnight gear in their two-bed, 1950s sleeper-car room and head to the private lounge to nibble hors d’oeuvres and sip a cocktail. Once all passengers are aboard, the train pulls away from the station, slipping into the beautiful solitude of the Northwoods for its three-hour circuit. While chugging along tracks laid down in the 19th century, guests dig into the rest of their five-course dinner, starting with a fresh salad and an appetizer of Wisconsin cheese. Soup warms stomachs before four entree options cater to vegetarians and carnivores alike, with rotating selections such as shrimp scampi, flatiron steak, and grilled salmon. After the main course, diners can tackle the dessert or temporarily defer the sugary finish for a before-bed treat.

The 1950s dining car remains open after guests finish their feasts, encouraging long conversations. Farther down, a dance car lets hoofers show off their moves to classics from the ‘60s, ‘70s, and ‘80s while the lounge serves up tasty cocktails. Hot breakfast the next morning tops off the excursions.

Wisconsin Great Northern Railroad

The Wisconsin Great Northern Railroad whisks passengers away on food-filled excursions through the scenic forests surrounding Spooner. A lineup of vintage train cars ensconces guests in antique luxury, starting with the dining car that plays host to elegant five-course dinners, leisurely brunches, and kid-friendly pizza feasts. Overnight guests sidle into the retro comfort of the 1950s sleeper car's double-decker single beds and individual climate controls. Those seeking deluxe accommodations can book a 1914 private car, complete with such railway luxuries as a full-size bed, private washrooms with showers, and emergency speakers set to play flapper-repelling waltzes. A lounge with a full bar accompanies most trips, lubricating pleasant conversation as each trip wends its way past quaint towns, shimmering streams, and towering trees.

We did the overnight bed/breakfast experience with the wonderful dinner at the beginning of the evening. We've been spoiled by the VIA Rail(Canada) transcontinental adventure in the past, and our expectations were correctly diminished beforehand--this is an excellent rail experience that my wife and I will do again ! By far the best combination of food, drink, scenery, entertain- ment, plus a comfy overnight stay anywhere in the upper Midwest USA.

The time change made it dark for our dinner trip, but they even had side lights shining out into the woods, so we had some view--they really thought of everything! Dinner was delicious, coach sleeping accommodations quite comfy-even a reading light for the top bunk, so I didn't waken my roommate in the morning. Really takes you back to slower, simpler, more gracious times--loved it! The 7 hr.drive from Chicago was worth it! Check out the town of Spooner while there-great shops & nice people!
