Historic home, the former Calabogie train station built during the heyday of Canada’s logging industry. 

The first part of this house, the original station, was built in 1878 and the “new” addition, was added as a hotel in 1884. The railroad came in 1886.Located on the North Fork of the Madawaska beside the trestle bridge of the K&P, this charming rustic home was both a successful AirBnB/Guesthouse prior to the pandemic, as well as an empty-nester’s dream.The large country kitchen with original wood ceilings backs onto the deck and the river with its soundtrack of rushing water and singing wildlife. The heat from the wood-burning stove in the living room wafts up to the second level through the open back staircase. Once the Waiting Room for the station, the dining room is spacious and inviting. The front staircase leads up to a loft which could be a fourth bedroom, office or studio. On the surrounding deck, listen to the rippling water, the loons  and if you get up early enough, see the deer come out of the woods to cross the river. Watch the ducks,  beavers build their dams in the winter and the playful otter slide down the bank for a swim. Feed the  chickadees, blue jays, hummingbirds, woodpeckers and squirrels.
