A wood-burning stove, roomy kitchen, outdoor patio and large, edgy living room offer ample options for lounging. Come experience a piece of Lubbock past, and imagine fire engines roaring off into the distance.

The Caboose

Beside a precious bed and breakfast is this authentic Santa Fe caboose, which has been remarkably restored. Now in its permanent location, it’s been set up to accommodate two guests who’d like to immerse into railroad history, literally. If you book the caboose, the bed and breakfast amenities are still available to you, like the pool and home-cooked breakfast.

While being straight forward inside with a nice subway tiled kitchen and open concept floor plan, this is the perfect private dwelling for couples or solo travelers.

The private patio can be utilized for morning coffee drinking or an afternoon tasting of cheeses and wines.

Enjoy retreating to a traditional home, that is both comfortable and updated at the same time. Glossy wood grain floors flow throughout the space, and the galley kitchen is ideal for preparing goodies to take outside and grill. Speaking of outside, a pergola hangs over the patio, where there is an inviting hot tub, and patio furniture awaiting. The backyard is spacious enough to play with the pups, as they are allowed to come along as well – just be sure to let the hosts know in advance.

The Little House

The Little House is actually a studio, that can ideally sleep two, but one more person can be accommodated on the pull-out couch. While everything is ultra-tiny, under 300 square feet, trendy and sleek finishes have been incorporated into the lovely getaway. Being ideally located near one of Lubbock’s main freeways, this might be one of the best, most affordable options when it comes to convenient Airbnbs in the area.
