The Katy Trail State Park is the old M-K-T Railroad Line, or Katy, for short. I can't think of a better place to stage your daytrip or weekend getaway exploring the Katy Trail than the Katy Trail B&B's Katy Boxcar!

We have a "Self Check In." Your reservation confirmation email will provide you with the key code and all of the information needed for your stay, including directions and contact information should you need anything during your stay. We live a few blocks away, offering our guests maximum privacy and solitude at our bed & breakfast.

Restoring the Katy Trail Boxcar to It's Former Glory

Who would have thought that a 70-year-old boxcar would ever be the recipient of a "green" renovation! As we restored the Katy Boxcar into the Katy Boxcar Guest Cottage at the Katy Trail Bed & Breakfast, we made it as eco-friendly as possible.

One day we were working with blown cellulose insulation and paperless sheet rock, the next we were uncovering the original 2 inch thick walnut flooring and working with locally sourced materials.

We dismantled a 65-year-old greenhouse in St. Louis and reused the cypress tongue and groove decking to create the new, weather-tight exterior walls on the boxcar...

What a journey... It's not every day you get to bring a boxcar back to life!

Going green makes sense, and it also ensures

that your stay is as comfortable as can be.

Please help us spread the word that we're making sure the Katy Boxcar Guest Cottage is around for another 70 years!

So whether you are a railroad buff, have a Thomas-the-Tank-Engine-crazy kid (like me!), or just love the Katy Trail, check it out! It's a great place to enjoy Rocheport.

See you on the trail!
