  • Introduction

    Red Barn Village Bed & Breakfast, front viewWelcome to the Red Barn Village B&B

    The Red Barn Village Bed & Breakfast is a truly unique accommodation located in Calrks Summit, PA, set in the country side twenty minutes from Scranton, and forty five minutes from Wilkes Barre, Pennsylvania. Each of our suites have a private bath and kitchenette so you always feel at home. We believe you'll agree, you've never seen anything like it, and you'll never forget it after you've stayed. We hope to see you soon!

    When you stay at a Bed & Breakfast you should receive more than just a room for the night. It's a chance to relax, be pampered and enjoy the uniqueness the Inn has to offer. It's attention to detail, making new friends, and finding unexpected pleasures. It's somewhat like a treasure hunt, where you always find the prize.

    Set in the beautiful countryside 5 miles West of Clarks Summit, we offer a very unique atmosphere for couples,  families and people traveling on business.

    Red Barn Village Bed & Breakfast, gazeboThe Garden Train

    In the late 1800's and early 1900 railroads emerged all over Scranton and the surrounding area as the need to transport iron and coal became greater. Northeast Pennsylvania was known as "The Anthracite Coal Capital of the World."

    Our model railroad pales by comparison to the hard work of the early settlers in the region. Born from an idea of a friend and initially struck down by Bert as "silly", the G Scale Model Railroad has become a conversation piece and the source of hours of enjoyment for bed & breakfast guests, friends and neighbors. Special thanks to Bob, Noah and Wayne for their contributions.

    Extended Stays

    If you are relocatng to the area or on a temporary work assignment, we offer reduced extended stay rates for all of our suites. These rates are available for stays of one week or more.  They include limited maintenance of the room and services which can be customized to your wishes. Contact us for more information and availability.
