Olaf and Charlotte have done a remarkable job restoring and decorating the train cars. Late check in was easy as the key was left for us. In the circus-themed train, there were magnetic letters spelling our names to welcome us. Jet tub was a hit. Breakfast in the dining car the next morning was the highlight. Thank you Olaf and Charlotte!

What a fun place to stay! We really enjoyed the Oriental Express. The food was phenomenal and one of the best breakfasts we've had. The hosts were very friendly and the service was great!

You get to stay in your own caboose! Definitely the most unique b&b we've ever stayed in. My husband and I stayed just one night for our anniversary. The owners are exceptionally friendly and the 4 course breakfast was delicious and very filling! The cabooses are all decorated with lots of attention to detail in different themes. We stayed in the orient express. It had everything we needed. The only thing that would stop me from staying here for a longer time is the lack of shower or at least if the faucet in the bath was one that pulled out so you could use it like a shower. There was a large bath jacuzzi. The location is about 1 mile from the town of sequim with restaurants and shops, Reasonable drive to port Angeles and olympic national park. If you like trains the owner is very knowledgeable. Overall a very enjoyable stay,

My husband and I stayed in the Grape Escape for one night over the Labor Day weekend and absolutely loved it. Olaf is a wonderful host and walked us through our caboose and its amenities after we checked in. The caboose itself was more spacious than most with a full size couch that folded out into a double bed, alongside the bed. The copper slipper tub was amazing and much appreciated after a day on the road. Note that there isn't a shower in this caboose, however. There is a hand-held shower attachment in the tub, but it's not a regular stand-up shower by any means. The WC/toilet is small, but serviceable. The tub is barely concealed from the rest of the caboose by a glass panel, so I would not recommend staying in this caboose with anyone you're not comfortable being naked around (unless you can work out an elaborate bathing schedule where your fellow travelers occupy themselves somewhere else while you bathe). The breakfast in the dining car was truly amazing. THE best breakfast I've ever had at a B&B, EVER. Hand's down. Fresh and local was the highlight, plus you can make special requests if you have allergies or food sensitivities when you make your reservation. The best part: No kids allowed. A truly unique, kitschy, peaceful and wonderful place to stay. I HIGHLY recommend it.

Everything about this was simply fantastic. It was clean. The food was great. The jacuzzi bath was great. The friendliness of the owners was beyond compare. My partner and I were simply blown away. We plan to return again and try more of the caboose/rooms.

We loved spending a night in our private, western theme caboose. Attention was paid to every detail and we hope one day to return and stay in another of these wonderful cabooses! Breakfast, served in the antique train dining car, was absolutely wonderful. Charlotte and Olaf provided first class service in all aspects of our stay. We highly recommend this unique getaway.

I have always loved trains and this was a great opportunity to stay in such a unique environment. The cabooses were private and provided an overnight stay like no other. The whole experience was very enjoyable and the food and hosts were amazing.

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.
