Hobo Inn: Mount Rainier National Park, Washington
Near the foot of majestic Mount Rainier, the Hobo Inn is the place to bed down for the night for an experience that melds creature comforts with the hobo lifestyle.
Around 1990, the proprietors converted about a half-dozen vintage cabooses into motel rooms (scarf on a stick not included).
