Go back in time and in style in this tastefully remodeled 1978 Norfolk Southern Caboose Car (#555025). Outfitted with a queen size bed, sofa, table for two and attached outside deck, Caboose #1 provides a charming overnight stay including a complimentary breakfast. Visitors can also enjoy beautiful mountain views and 5 miles of hiking trails during their stay. A unique and unforgettable experience. All proceeds support Apple Ridge Farm, a non-profit org.

The space
For 39 years, Apple Ridge Farm has provided an environmental education and camping experience for more than 70,000+ youth, many from Roanoke’s inner-city neighborhoods and public housing projects. Our founder, visionary and educator Peter Allen Lewis, believes strongly that all adults must take responsibility for helping young people succeed. Matching dreams to deeds, Peter purchased his Copper Hill farm in 1975 in order to establish a mountain camp to give under served children an educational experience at a rural retreat. Three years later, the non-profit, tax-exempt camp was organized. In 1992, Lewis and his family donated a barn and 8.5 acres of their farm for the camp. The wooded mountain areas and country spaces are magical places for urban youth and adults as well. Our programs also teach self-esteem and positive values, guiding scores of young campers in their personal and academic growth.
