Spend Your Next Vacation in a Train Caboose on Clyde, North Carolina's Buffalo Ranch

Why spend your next vacation in hotel room when you could spend it in a train caboose? Buffalo Creek Vacations in Clyde, North Carolina allow their guests the chance to unwind in the Great Smoky Mountains on a 72-acre buffalo ranch. This is one vacation rental you've never experienced before. 

This unique getaway is a little piece of heaven. There are two fully furnished cabooses available for rent as well as six log cabins. The caboose runs $135 per night and can sleep up to five guests -- and your furry friends (for an extra fee).

The herd of buffalo roam freely around the property. You can wake up in the morning to see the bison feeding as the herd enjoys their morning oats. Each caboose has a full kitchen and a large deck so you can look out at all of the wildlife on the ranch. The bathrooms even have heated tile floors, which sounds incredibly cozy. Buffalo Creek has gone above and beyond to make sure you have everything you could possibly need to have the most relaxing trip possible. 

The property is only 25 miles outside of Asheville and 12 outside of Maggie Valley and Waynesville. How ideal does it sound to hit the town in the afternoon after enjoying a cup of coffee in the caboose living room while watching the buffalo walk around outside your window?

If sleeping in a caboose isn't your cup of tea, consider the Buffalo Bungalow log cabin. It comes with a hot tub, dual-sided wood burning stone fireplace, outdoor fire-pit and wifi. The property also has llamas, rabbits, goats and chickens onsite so you really get the full ranch experience. 

Waking up on a bison ranch is definitely one of the most scenic ways you could take in all of the sites of the Smoky Mountains.
