An amazing stay

5 on September 01, 2015

My wife and I stayed in the Casey Jones caboose and can't say enough good things about it. The caboose was very comfortable as well as fun and quirky as you might imagine. Every detail about the place, from the decoration to the music during breakfast was well thought out and perfectly placed. The highlight as you might have guessed from other reviews was the breakfast. I have never had such an amazing breakfast.....ever. The service was 5 star level and the food was even beyond that. From the website the place looks great, but the photos don't remotely do it justice. It's far better in person. The only downside is that it was at the beginning of our trip so has set expectations too high for the rest of the vacation!

Anniversary Ride

My husband loves trains so I surprised him with a 2 night stay for our anniversary in the Orient Express. The caboose was comfortable, wonderful two person Jacuzzi tub, valet stand and fridge with cold bottled water and chocolate. The 4 course breakfast was incredible, far exceeded our expectations. Some dishes we savored for the first time and now want the recipe. Charlotte and Olaf are beautiful friendly folks, and are passionate about their small town, providing a map and marking the best sights to see, places to shop and eat.

Really fun experience

My husband and I stayed in the Western caboose at Red Caboose Getaway. I had a really tough time finding an affordable place for 1 night on an August weekend in the Sequim/Port Angeles area. Most B and B's in the area have a 2 night minimum during this peak season, and chain hotels were also very expensive with all of the weekend festivals in the area. Our experience at Red Caboose was really fun, affordable, and accommodating. The Western is decorated to the theme and included lots of western movie DVD's as well. The room features small swinging saloon doors into the bathroom, so if you need absolute privacy for bathing, you may want to choose a different space. The claw foot tub is really fun though, and the toilet is in it's own private stall. Since there is no air conditioning, the room was very warm when we arrived in the afternoon, but it cooled down as the evening progressed and the sun set. By the time we went to sleep, the temperature was very comfortable. The setting is lovely with a duckpond and lavender bushes, and the breakfast was the best we've ever had at a B and B. The dining car is very cool, and you feel as if you're transported to a time when people enjoyed full dining experiences during train travel. The food and service were amazing. We would definitely stay here again.

Fantastic place to stay!

We booked the Casey Jones caboose for a two night stay. Check-in at 4:30pm was smooth and very personable thanks to Olaf (one of the owners) who gave us a quick tour of the grounds and our caboose. Recommendations for lunch and dinner were "spot-on" and no need for breakfast recommendations except "don't be late". Not a problem for us as the well appointed dining car (from 1937) was a mere 5 feet from our caboose. Breakfast was unbelievable, a four course gourmet treat. The whole stay must really be experienced. Our pleasure just kept growing and growing. We would definitely stay here again and would highly recommend RCG to those we care about.

Best little b&b in Sequim

I took my son here for his 12th birthday and it was a perfect choice! We stayed in the Grape Escape and it was lovely. The copper soaking tub is fantastic! Breakfast in the dining car was really the highlight though. Olaf and his wife were so friendly and welcoming. Thank you so much!

completely charming

The Orient Express is completely charming. And breakfast in the restored 1937 dining car was deluxe in every sense of the word! Thank you to Olaf and Charlotte!

Exceeded our expectations in every way, thank you!

Everything was Perfect! Only thing I would suggest would be a more reasonable cancellation policy, sometimes things happen that make it impossible to plan a month out. Probably would have a lot more bookings with maybe a one or two week policy instead of a month. Thank you Olaf and Chalolette for a wonderful experience.ppo?jcc

Weekend getaway

Such a great, fun, and unique place to stay. Skip the traditional hotel and book the Red Caboose! Not only was the bed one of the most comfortable we have ever slept in but breakfast one of the best we have ever had. Charlotte and Olaf take amazing pride in their BnB and it shows. We will be sure to stay here again on our next trip to the Olympic National Park area

Our lovely weekend

The food served for breakfast is way above anything we have had at other bed and breakfast places. The uniqueness of the caboose rooms is fun and amazing. We have stayed there three times. Our favorite was The Grape Escape. The Orient Express and Lavender were also very nice rooms. Olaf and Charlotte are great peoples to talk with also. Being able to watch the ducklings in the pond was an added bonus.
