The Red Caboose Motel is located in the heart of Pennsylvania's Amish Country, surrounded by picturesque farms roadside markets and footsteps from the Strasburg Railroad and the Pennsylvania Train Museum. Our peaceful location offers a true Pennsylvania Dutch experience.

The Red Caboose Motel is one of the closest hotels servicing Sight and Sound Theater, only 2 miles from our door. Plus great outlet shopping, Dutch Wonderland, the American Music Theater and the Amish Village are close by and easy to get to.

Stay the evening at the Red Caboose Motel and enjoy our silo viewing tower; offering an unrivaled view of Amish farms, nearby valleys and beautiful Lancaster County countryside. The Strasburg Railroad passes our property throughout the day, and you'll frequently see Amish neighbors out for a drive. We also have periodic sales of Amish baked goods on the property.

In the summer, our Amish barn becomes an outdoor movie theater. Bring a blanket, sit on the lawn outside and enjoy family movies under the Lancaster County skies.

The kids will delight in our petting zoo with sheep, goats, chickens, and ponies. And they'll be able to feed the farm animals. Our 9 1/2 acres of farmland includes a playground and plenty of open fields for playing ball, flying kites, tossing Frisbees or just enjoying a relaxing stroll through Amish countryside.

The Red Caboose Motel also offers leisurely Amish buggy rides through Strasburg and beautiful Lancaster County. As you travel, you'll pass Amish farms, the historic Strasburg railroad, and probably a few Amish neighbors along the roadways.
