Northern Rail Traincar Inn offers a completely unique experience! Made up of authentic train boxcars renovated into lovely guest accommodations. Our traincar Inn is nestled in the wilderness just 3 miles north of Two Harbors, Minnesota, near the intersection of Hwy 61 and Hwy 3. See our sign on Hwy 61 just past Betty's Pies.
At 30 minutes from Duluth, guests enjoy quick, convenient access to all of the North Shore's amazing activities including the Superior Hiking Trail, State Snowmobile Trails, Ski Trails, Gooseberry Falls, Split Rock Lighthouse and much more! Northern Rail features 17 rooms in authentic train boxcars and each room is one of several themes: Victorian, Oriental, Safari, Fishing, Lighthouse, Bear & Golf. Our rooms are connected by a charming enclosed hallway that is reminiscent of an old fashioned train station platform. The depot-style main building serves as our guest relations and breakfast area as well as a place for guests to play games or sit by the fireplace with a good book!
Northern Rail has welcomed thousands of guests and visitors from all over the world. Visitors from as near as our backyard and as far away as New Zealand, Russia, Ireland, Germany, Japan, England, Netherlands and Switzerland have experienced our one-of-a-kind accommodations. Spring, summer, fall or winter... the natural beauty and peaceful serenity of the area combine for a wonderful place for you to stay on the North Shore for a great getaway!
