Caboose Cabins on a Buffalo Farm

Feel like a kid again by spending the night in a caboose on a working mountain farm with bison, llamas, goats, alpacas and more. Buffalo Creek is located in Haywood County in Pisgah National Forest by the Great Smoky Mountains. This very special setting also has larger rental log cabins, an elaborate indoor model railroad town and many other surprises.
