Loved staying in the railroad car, however the floor in our car was extremely out of level and had a slope as you approach the bathroom area. Other than that my stay was very good and I expect to be visiting again.

We wanted to do something special for my youngest son's 11th Birthday, so we stayed at the Red Caboose Motel for the weekend. My eldest son has always been fascinated by trains, so I knew he would enjoy this trip, too. We stayed in the Western Maryland caboose, and my sons liked the bunk beds. It is small inside, and the bathroom is in need of updating. The air conditioning units are loud. However, we're happy that the bathtub had hot water, and the caboose was cool inside. (The weather was around 83 degrees over the weekend). I give it a 5/5 for the unique experience!

Myself and my children loved the Red Caboose motel. Our room had a beautiful view of Lancaster and the railroad. Room was clean and neat for when we arrived and they even called to check and make sure everything was to our liking. I will definitely be staying here again.

We enjoyed our stay, although when I made the reservation I thought we would be in a caboose. Please put an extra blanket or two in that room (homestead #4) as there is a huge temperature difference between the front and back bedroom. The bedroom closes to the bathroom was quite cold. Very friendly people, although I'm not sure why the bathroom would be closed right as breakfast began - no other place to go with kids.
