Fully restored, Tom’s caboose serves as a memorable place to spend the night. Join Tom as he shares the tale of finding and restoring his iconic red caboose.

Rockbridge County Virginia is steeped in history--a drive down Lexington’s main street is like stepping back in time—so much so that Hollywood has utilized downtown as a movie set for Revolutionary War, and Civil War era films. They just move the cars out and top up the roadways with dirt and they’re ready to roll.
