Hi Jann, Gotta say, I liked the stay a lot. I love people and I love to visit but it's nice to go places where you make pleasurable but short encounters. I'm not big on communal meals drawing the crowds together to socialize. This was my kind of stay. Loved the ambience and what a meal. My wife and I could have shared one of your fabulous breakfasts. In fact, we brought most of the second serving home and our children who took it down without stopping for air. :-) We have remodeled 3 homes in my lifetime from removal of plaster & lath to rewiring, plumbing and new drywall. Siding and roofing are the final cosmetic touches that people see. I know and can feel all the effort you folks put into those cars. Remarkable! Well done. Be seeing you again, Tim and Jane

The Alexsangria Red Hatters from Alexandria spent an amazing afternoon having a delicious lunch served in Jann's beautifully furnished tea room. We also toured her charming Bed & Breakfast rooms and the Pullman cars, which were stunning with all the bygone era amenities they included. All of the ladies are now busy convincing their husbands this is the perfect overnight anniversary trip to take. Don't miss this gem in New York Mills.

On a beautiful Sunday in June, seven sisters spent a delightful night at The Whistle Stop. We stayed in the Imperial Pullman and the Caboose. Both were impeccably furnished with so many special details and were very clean and comfortable. We come from a railroad family so this was a special treat for us. The rates were good, the service outstanding and the breakfast was superb. Jann and Lori were so warm and friendly that they made us feel like old friends yet we had just met. We loved our time at The Whistle Stop and highly recommend it! Cheri

My husband and I stayed in the Imperial Car for our 6th anniversary. I was really excited when we booked our car, but I couldn't believe how beautiful our car was until we saw it in person. We have stayed in many bed and breakfasts, but this was by far the most unique. There was personal touches everywhere around the car from antiques to little items waiting for us to make our stay special. You could really tell the time and energy that went into creating this bed and breakfast. I love the 1900 era and the car really reflected the style of the period. It was easy to get comfortable right away. We put on our comfy robes and sat by the fire place. The jacuzzi room was a nice way to the end night. I wish we could have stayed more than one night. We woke up to an amazing breakfast at our door. We sat in the old breakfast nook and I felt like was really riding on a train. We didn't even mind the trains that passed by. This is what makes this bed and breakfast so memorable. Everything was absolutely pleasant and perfect. We will be definitely returning to this place!

My Fiancé & I were very impressed with Imperial Car that we stayed in. The renovation & decor was beautiful, the railroad car was very comfortable and our breakfast was delivered to us in a basket! The breakfast was wonderful. We plan to stay here again. Highly recommend it and it's a great way to enjoy a break from the busy lives we live.

Wonderful respite from the every day busyness of life. Took us back to simpler times and a slower pace of life....just what everyone needs once in a while! Would highly recommend this B&B for anyone. You don't even have to be a train buff to enjoy these accommodations.

The Palace Car is a charming restored train car parked right along the train tracks, and is a realistic ride when the train passes! The oversized dual whirlpool in this car was very relaxing, and breakfast is scrumptious! The perfect get away, we have booked again & again! When we stayed it rained all weekend and we enjoyed the fire place and whirlpool. Breakfast upon request was delivered to the car in a picnic basket with orange juice and coffee, eggs, sausage, toast, fruit, and a wonderful berry souffle. Would recommend a fall or winter stay, for the drive is beautiful in the fall, and snow is the ultimate excuse to stay indoors and relax!
