Northern Rail Traincar Inn



About Us

Northern Rail Traincar Inn offers a very unique experience! Made up of authentic train boxcars renovated into lovely guest accommodations, our Traincar Inn is nestled in the wilderness. We are just 3 miles north of Two Harbors, Minnesota, near the intersection of Hwy 61 and County Hwy 3.

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, Poland, 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!
