The train depot dates back to 1909, when Paint Bank was the final stop of the Potts Valley Branch line of the Norfolk & Western Railway. This expansion was part of the mining boom of the early 1900’s. The depot and our other historic buildings have been renovated and converted into charming lodging, while maintaining much of the original architecture. The main section of the depot lodge features 4 rooms upstairs, each with private bath, a gas fireplace, and the soothing sounds of flowing water from nearby Potts Creek. The lodge also offers a master suite with private bath, living room, and a deck overlooking the water. Choose from a variety of accommodations including an actual restored train caboose, one of many lodge rooms, one of two cottages, or a private cabin by Pott’s Creek. 800-970-DEPOT
