About

The Featherbed Railroad Bed and Breakfast Resort is Northern California's most unique Bed and Breakfast. The Featherbed Railroad is located on the shore of Clear Lake. At the Featherbed Railroad, you enjoy the peace and tranquility of one of nine luxuriously themed vintage railroad cabooses set in a park-like setting overlooking our private dock, boat launch and beach. Lake County's Clear Lake offers activities of all sorts, from boating and fishing to antique shopping. There are almost 30 premium wineries within a short drive of the Featherbed Railroad. Ecotourism is growing quickly in the region with hiking trails, kayaking and bicycling and geo-caching is very popular here too. Clear Lake has the cleanest air in California and the third cleanest air in the US. In fact, we have some great ideas for two- and three-day itineraries. We serve a fresh, homemade breakfast every day incorporating the incredible bounty of our local farmers. All the cabooses feature private restrooms, individual heat and air conditioning and queen-size beds topped with a luxurious European-style featherbed. The Featherbed Railroad is just 120 miles north of San Francisco and about 90 minutes away from Sacramento. Also near by are Mendocino, Healdsburg, and Calistoga. The unhurried local attitude in Lake County makes this a wonderful destination to anyone looking to truly relax away their stress. Join us soon for a relaxing stay in a genuine antique railroad Caboose where you relax in your own private two-person Jacuzzi tub and savor some of our excellent local wine. With nature trails, fabulous water sports, bass fishing, great antique stores and more, the Clear Lake area offers something for everyone and with peaceful, uncrowded country roads and a relaxed atmosphere; it's the perfect place to unwind this weekend.

The owners where so sweet and cordial. The breakfast was outstanding! My only slight complaint was the room could have been a little cleaned but others then that I would highly recommend this destination to anyone. Wineries close by, casinos close by and great restaurant close by. Come stay and this darling B & B and choose your themed room.

I just wanted to let you know how much I needed this beautiful relaxing vacation. Everyone has a different journey in life and no one knows where that one person is at in their life journey. As for us we were in a very difficult time in our lives. Our teenage son was in a very bad car accident and our Christmas was spent in the hospital (little over a week) and everyday things get a little better and our son is now starting to walk again. So we ran away to your beautiful resort and boy did we need it. I know I gave you way more info then needed. I felt I needed to THANK YOU AGAIN for making us feel so welcome . I will tell everyone who will listen about you guys.
