You can stay in a Kansas Airbnb that’s a converted boxcar

Built in 1941, the hosts believe the car was used on the Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fe Railroad, also known as the ATSF Railroad (via Airbnb). According American rails, this railroad was first used to help people settle in Kansas, but was later used to transport things like wheat and cattle. In 2020, Amy transformed this old boxcar into a unique Airbnb experience.

The original wooden lining inside the walls is still intact, bringing warmth to the space. Although the square footage is small, the host has made it cosy, inviting and cozy with a loft where you’ll find two beds and a bathroom on the other. Although there is no full kitchen or oven, the hosts provide a toaster oven, hot plate and microwave to prepare snacks or meals. In addition, there is a charcoal barbecue and a table and chairs to cook and enjoy a meal outside. The outdoor area includes a fire pit to sit at night and a tether ball and cornhole to play in while you wait for the barbecue to finish. You will need to bring your own firewood and charcoal; just make sure the wood is local (via Do not move firewood).

The entire covered wagon is for guests and has a private entrance. Although the wagon is on the edge of the host’s farm and you can see their house from the Airbnb, you will have access to a private courtyard.
