Property type hotel


About the property

Carriage 4388 offers you a generous art deco inspired living area to relax in. There is a cosy, Queen size bed, self contained kitchen/dining area and your own rain water shower.

Movie buffs will also enjoy looking at our collection of old movie posters that line the walls.

There are also plenty of DVDs, videos, magazines and board games to keep you entertained.

There is a slow combustion wood fire - perfect on a cold winter Canberra day and in the warmer months the train also has air conditioning and windows that provide a nice through breeze.

Close by is our spring fed brook where kangaroos and other wildlife can often be seen. The large wrap around verandah is an ideal spot for you to enjoy a BBQ whilst admiring the clear starlit skies, beautiful sunsets and stunning views of the nearby ranges from our rural property.

This carriage is suitable for 2 adults.

Strictly non smoking.

Train-buffs would love this!

  • 4 of 5

Lovingly restored train carriage on a rural property 15 minutes from Canberra. Secluded and peaceful and perfect for a single night. Well equipped with music, board games and memorabillia. David and Jenny were good hosts, just the right amount of contact (we usually avoid B&B's)

Unique accommodation & friendly hosts

  • 4 of 5

We stayed here for an overnight stopover while on a road trip. Unique and comfortable accommodation; beautiful, peaceful surroundings; and a delicious breakfast prepared and served by friendly hosts Jenny & David, including eggs from their own chooks. Good location to explore the surrounding wineries. Would stay here again if looking for accommodation in the area. The only inconvenience is that they only take cash payment.

The owners put you at ease straight away nand were very attentive to your needs, the breakfast provided within their house was excellent along with their friendly informative insight to Canberra's tourist attractions and how to get there etc..

The carriage we stayed in "4388" was fantastic, we arrived mid Friday afternoon to find our names on a blackboard welcoming us aboard plus the log fire was already up and running, so cosy and romantic. Accommodation was excellent, all cooking utensils provided including a B-b-que. Watching the western sunset over the distant ranges from the timber deck with cheese & bickies plus of coarse a glass of wine in the other hand, well it just doesn't get better than that, of coarse the lady of your mdreams right besides you.

The attention to detail by the owners certainly did not go un-noted. Five stars xxxxx
