About Our Retreat

the Choo Choo rooster house

Curious why our retreat is named the “Choo Choo Rooster”?  With the historic Oakland train station (built in 1884) right around the corner, you are apt to hear a train whistle or two during your stay. So we developed a catchy railroad themed name for the retreat.  We found the perfect rooster patterned dishes and decor for the kitchen, and we started combining the two themes and Choo Choo Rooster Scrapbook Retreat was born!
