The award-winning Featherbed Railroad Bed and Breakfast Resort is Northern California wine country's most unique rural bed and breakfast. The Featherbed Railroad is located right on the shore of Clear Lake in Northern California's Lake County. At the Featherbed Railroad, you get to stay in one of nine theme-decorated antique railroad cabooses set in a park-like setting overlooking our private boat launch, beach and pier.
Lake County's Clear Lake offers activities of all sorts, from boating and fishing to antique shopping. There are over 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 geocaching is very popular here too. Clear Lake is known for its exceptional bass fishing.
The Featherbed Railroad is just 120 miles north of San Francisco or Sacramento. We are just a short drive from Santa Rosa, Mendocino, Healdsburg, Calistoga, Ukiah and Willits.
The unhurried local attitude in Lake County makes this a wonderful destination to anyone looking to relax away the stress of work yet we're less than a tank of gas away.
Join us soon for a relaxing stay in a real antique retired railroad caboose where you relax in your own private Jacuzzi tub and bring in 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 truly unwind - or maybe be wined and dined!
