Great location, only a 5 minute drive to the Strasburg Railroad Station. The petting zoo on the property was a added bonus but they need to monitor the food dispensers better. The old silo turned into observation tower added a great view of Lancaster. We will definitely stay

Several vintage railroad cars converted into a fine restaurant atmosphere! GREAT FOOD! Best pot roast I remember ever having! Garlic potatoes and tomato bisque soup in large portions finished with broccoli! YUM!!

Very clean rooms. Kids thought it was a unique place. Rooms sleep 6. Bunks in back for the young ones. It was warm so the place is insulated well. Maybe cramped quarters for some if all 6 were to occupy the room.

Get ready for an adventure of a life time. Sleep in a caboose of yesteryear and imagine what it was like to ride the rails across this great nation. Have a romantic meal in the dining car as trains roll by your window. Watch the Amish work their farms and even take a buggy ride

Do you offer discount tickets to the Sight and Sound theatre?
I do not know if they do. But I have found any city I have visited, always has a visitor center where maps and discount coupons can be picked up. Plus the personal knowledge of the area's best known places to see from their own experiences.

Is it pet friendly?
Hello, lisatayloriv187, I am sorry to say, not pet friendly..only service dogs allowed. I had the same problem. I think nearby there is one pet friendly motel but very small like a closet size room. This is why I am not posting the name of it. Apologize I could not help further but hoped in some way it did. thank you, Lu

What type of room is the Reading? I'm looking to fit two adults and two 3 year olds (too small for bunk beds).
Hello! The Reading Caboose was recently renovated and now features a single queen bed. There is a small area to sleep up in the cupola using a sleeping bag but we don't count that toward the capacity of the room. We market this room as being for 2 people. Your better bet would be to request a "Small Family Caboose." The Small Family Cabooses have a double bed and a set of bunk beds. If you have any other questions we would be happy to answer them. Give us a call at 717-687-5000. All aboard!

"The restaurant is across the street from the Strasburg Railroad!"
"Great train and caboose related items in gift shop."
"try for the best level of accommodation that you can get."
"There are family cabooses with full size bathrooms, they are not listed on the website. You have to call to request them."
"Ask at the desk about what's in each car or caboose - they are not all the same."
