A fun experience.
Very cool experience to stay in a caboose. My daughter loved it. Newly renovated so everything inside was new and clean. We filtered our search on places with “Free Breakfast” but unfortunately since it was so early in their season, the restaurant wasn’t open during the week. WiFi was great though. Microwave and fridge included. I’d suggest including microwaveable cups, even paper, as then I would have been able to make instant coffee or tea.

November Red Caboose Motel stay
I have stayed at The Red Caboose Motel several times over the past couple of years....It has become a nice getaway spot for me to relax away from the hustle and bustle of suburbia. The motel is located in the midst of Amish country so you can see Amish farmers tending their fields and traveling via horse and buggy. The Red Caboose Motel features cabooses remodeled into comfortable motel rooms....These cabooses once traveled the rails in freight service and have seen hundreds of thousands of miles on the rails prior to being retired and repurposed into motel rooms......Under the new management, a number of the cabooses are being remodeled inside....My caboose for my most recent stay in Nov 2017 was #49 which featured an upgraded bathroom with hottub as well as shower.....Room featured a/c and heat, flat screen tv, minifridge and microwave, and wireless internet. Room was very quiet and comfortable. There is a petting zoo on site with an assortment of Llamas, goats, miniature horses and hogs.....I have made friends with some of the animals over my visits and some of them enjoy getting a scratching behind the ears and a back scratch. There is a restaurant in an old passenger car on site with a varied menu....or else the Route 30 shopping and restaurant district is a short 10-15 drive from the motel. The Route 30 diner offers a good menu. I find the Red Caboose Motel to be an enjoyable place to stay to get away from it all and will return again and again.
