When the owners of Izaak Walton Inn in Essex, Montana discovered a series of abandoned train cars on their property, they considered throwing them away. Then, they came up with a much better way to put the cars to use.

According to Conservative Tribune, they turned the old railroad cars into luxury hotel rooms.


Ironically, the inn was initially constructed in 1939, when the Great Northern Railway decided to place a stop at Essex. Sadly, World War II prevented the stop from ever actually being build, but the inn remained in the area anyway. Now, the railroad has saved the inn once again as tourists flock from all over the world to stay in the unique hotel rooms.

The rooms are equipped with stoves, ovens, refrigerators, microwaves, coffee makers and more. The train car pictured in this story can house up to six people, and the inside is designed to look like a log cabin.
