The Red Caboose Motel & Casey Jones' Restaurant

Welcome to Paradise Station!

The Red Caboose Motel, Casey Jones' Restaurant and The Barn at Paradise Station (opening May 2023) are Lancaster County's most unique and iconic motel, restaurant, event venue and gift shop! Sleep in a restored 25-ton caboose and wake up in the heart of Amish farmland. Listen to and watch the Strasburg Rail Road's steam engines go right by our front porch. Buggy rides on premise along with a full-service 175 seat restaurant and expansive gift shop. Host your wedding or special event in our meticulously restored Pennsylvania 1800's Bank Barn. Children of all ages will love our petting zoo, playground areas and viewing tower. Picnic areas also available.

Amenities include cable TV, microfridge, air conditioning/heat, and private baths. Our cabooses sleep anywhere from 1 to 6 people. Handicap accessible options are available. Don't miss the Shady Rest Hotel in our historic farmhouse on property, featuring 4 efficiency units. Our beautifully designed, custom built Conductor's Quarters (available May 2023) is the perfect spot for that special getaway!

Enjoy breakfast, lunch or dinner in one of two genuine dining cars (yes, it still shakes!) at Casey Jones' Restaurant. Featuring made to order family fresh fare, our 175-seat restaurant is open seven days a week year round. Outdoor seating, take out and even caboose room service are available. Group Dining also available.
