This is a very unique B&B. Glad we went. I am not a train enthusiast, but I am fascinated with history in general. I would enthusiastically recommend a stay here. My wife and I are already talking about our next visit. Rooms - awesome. For a reworked caboose and a fascinating piece of history, I think they are a 5 out of 5, but as compared to a plushly carpeted room with big screen TV and overstuffed recliners, not so much. Not running them down, I loved it. Lets just be honest, it is a train car. Bed is very comfortable, tub was fantastic. It is hard to rate this as compared to a regular B&B. Service - could not be better. Value - once again, how do you compare the value something as unique as this? Cleanliness - could not be better Dining - WOW!!!! Great experience. "We serve breakfast to our first class passengers promptly at 8:30, and we do not serve a second class breakfast!" I love it! Excellent cuisine, awesome service! Thank you for the history.

Olaf & Charlotte were very courteous. Our stay was a complete and unique experience that will not soon be forgotten. Olaf was very knowledgeable willing to answer any questions we asked and was filled with history. We plan on staying at the RCG the next time we're in Sequim to see Hurricane Ridge. Thank you for a wonderful and unique stay. Rick Danioth & Katie Zipp

Simply the best!

This place is worth going out of your way to experience. My husband and I both thoroughly enjoyed the stay. It's just too bad we didn't say longer.

Delightful stay in a charmingly wacky circus themed caboose

Having driven by this place for years, I'd always wanted to stay here, and when we finally did it was every bit as much fun as I expected. My boyfriend thought we were going to some lace-covered pillow Victorian B & B, (yawn) so it was a fun surprise for him too. The breakfast was hearty and great, and Olaf and his wife shared a lot of their experiences acquiring and renovating the cabooses and dining car.

RCG Overnight

My granddaughter was delighted with our stay at the RCG. She loved it and gave each of her parents (one at a time) a tour of the Casey Jones and the exterior via her I-pad. She'd like to return and stay in each of the other cabooses or would that be caboose.

Charming and unique stay

We recently made a weekend visit to Sequim for a bicycling weekend, and after some poking around the interweb found Red Caboose. It seemed like fun, and there weren't a whole lot of options in Sequim, so we went ahead and booked. My wife and I both came away very impressed. Olaf has done a great job in concept and execution. Our caboose (Grapes something) was very charming, beautifully outfitted, and comfortable. Olaf was the consummate host, full of information and obviously very enthusiastic about his business. We enjoyed the privacy and amenities offered by the concept, liked learning about the history of both the train cars and his business, and breakfast was awesome:) We've had bed and "breakfast" meals which were basically coffee and pastries...not here! Perfect fueling stop before a long day on our bikes. It didn't hurt that the weather was beautiful, his restaurant recommendation (Dockside) was perfect, and that the riding was great....but Red Caboose certainly contributed. We are headed back again next year, and will stay here again.

Unique and Wonderful

I was worried that the gimmick would interfere with comfort. I thought 'how comfortable can one be in an old rail car'? I was wrong. The attention to detail in both decor and comfort were outstanding. The elegant breakfast (5 courses served on linen tablecloth and real china) was the crowning touch along with Olaf's stories about how it all happened. My husband, the engineer, was really impressed with the fact that all utility connections were underground and how difficult it would have been to run them into the cabooses.

Great place to stay!

Very unique and a great place to stay. Caboose was very clean and the food was wonderful. The owner clearly loves what he does and the details make the whole experience.
