My husband and I stayed at the Red Caboose as part of our anniversary celebration. We rode in from Port Angeles on the Olympic Discovery trail. The Red Caboose Getaway is conveniently located right off the trail. We enjoyed our stay very much apart from the Caboose not having A/C. It was a very hot day and the fan we had in there did nothing to help. Wifi didn't work as well. Breakfast was amazing. Definitely the best breakfast we had ever had at any B&B.

Had a very fun time here and we stayed in the Circus Caboose. As I laid in the Jazzuzi I closed my eyes and could hear circus music. The breakfast was the very best I have ever had 4 course at that. Elegant and good. The host are there for you to refer you to there little town of great food and things to do. We will be back I want to stay in all of them. Thank you for sharing your little fun cabooses with us. Loved it

Staying at the Red Caboose was a great addition to visiting the lavender farms in August of 2017. We are a young couple in our early 20's and found that there wasn't much to explore in Sequim past 5 PM as the stores closed early. However, the Red Caboose was a great place to relax and enjoy each other's companies. Upon arrival, Olaf greeted and walked us to our room. My boyfriend and I were both in awe at how well designed the room was. We stayed in the western caboose and it truly stuck to its theme. This is the most unique bed and breakfast I've ever stayed at. Though the accommodation was lovely, the onsite dining was a little lacking. The food that was served during our stay was very sweet. We were expecting a little more savory. However, I appreciated that all ingredients were local. It was a nice touch. I'd still recommend others to stay, but be wary that this may be a bit pricey for some people.

The Red Caboose was a great way to start our explorations of the Olympic Peninsula. We were impressed with the way every detail inside the caboose was considered with such care. And breakfast was truly exceptional, with blackberries from the property! The proprietors were welcoming and showed us great hospitality. We didn't have much time to explore Sequim, but did spend an evening at the marina on the bay nearby, enjoying the view and eating a delicious meal at the dockside restaurant there.

The beds are comfortable, the stay is unique, and the breakfast is to die for. I highly recommend a stay here.

My sister referred me to this unique and whimsical B&B... and am I EVER GLAD SHE DID! What a fantastic night we had in "The Western". Every nook and cranny was filled with a fun western artifact. What a complete and total labour of love! Breakfast was astonishing and definitely a major,, almost theatrical, affair. Olaf and Charlotte laid out a thoughtful, delicious menu, and served it in a style that is a throwback to another era. I wish I had worn more formal attire. Thank you, thank you, thank you. The only thing I would suggest is a common outdoor area for the guests to meet one another if they so chose. A wonderful B&B experience. Thank you!!!!!!

My husband and I spent our wedding night at the Red Caboose Getaway previously, and just returned to celebrate our 5 year anniversary. We stayed in the Grape Escape this time and overall had a lovely time. Olaf and Charlotte are delightful and the food (as before) was incredible beyond expectation. My husband had a dietary restriction that they did a fantastic job working around it and providing amazing options for him. The only sad note to our stay is that we noticed since our previous visit things are falling a bit into disrepair. Nothing was totally rundown or anything, but it's time for some updates and a little more upkeep that I'm sure it's becoming difficult for the owners to keep up with. We heard that their son will be taking on the business soon and we are hoping that his addition will help breathe some renewed life into this amazing and unique retreat. We had a great trip and hope to be able to return for our 10 year anniversary as well.

Phenomenal service - room, supplies, and advice. Beautiful decorum and attention to detail - name tags, uniforms, table settings, furnishings and rooms. The food was 5 star meals - and even more appreciated, made custom for my diet, vegan and gluten free. The 2nd night I couldn't make breakfast due to being on a mountain and they graciously made a special exception to package it for my partner. Hers was warm but mine was spectacular even later in the day. I love trains. I love bed&brealfasts. And home made gourmet meals - garden fresh. Having been to B&Bs all over the country and the world, there's nothing like this one and worth the trip and effort!
4.4 on August 08, 2017
We loved our stay. Very unique B&B - nice private rooms (each caboose is like a private "cabin", physically separated from the others), awesome breakfast, excellent service. Would definitely recommend it, and plan to visit again.
5 on July 30, 2017
Another fantastic stay and great breakfast. The Grape Escape has two very comfortable beds. The copper tub is unique. The traveller is greeted with a welcoming fireplace - that did not put out heat in July - just provided an ambience. Breakfast was amazing again. The only comment I could make is that it would be better if the laundrey detergent used on the linens could be non scented, then everything would be perfect. Very clean. Amazing experience. The owners are personable and remember unique things about likes and dislikes for a year. That is really incredible.
5 on July 29, 2017
Charlotte and Olaf had a wonderful idea with the Red Caboose and it was outstanding. The extra little details in our caboose where all over the place and the food was 6 star. We plan on coming back again and again to stay in each of the cabooses and enjoy the culinary surprises that will be served.
5 on July 27, 2017
We enjoyed our stay immensely. The caboose was beautifully decorated, and the breakfast was to die for! The service was excellent as well. I would stay again in a heartbeat.
5 on July 26, 2017
The owners are so terrific, knowledgeable and personable. They take great pride in what they do and do everything superbly. This was our 2nd stay and we can't wait to keep going back until we have stayed in every caboose since they are all different. We talk it up to all our family and friends. Great accommodations, great food, great people, a unique and memorable place that always satisfies 100%.
Thank you for the kind words. A-L-L...A-B-O-A-R-D!, Stationmaster Olaf

I spent three nights in the BN Circus caboose in mid-July 2017, and loved every minute of it. Olaf has invested tremendous energy into decorating each caboose with a different theme, and finding the decorating essentials to create cabooses that cover circus, western, wine, and other themes. I felt that a key feature of my caboose was the privacy I enjoyed, since I did not have neighbors on the other side of a wall. I did not have to be concerned if I was bothering my neighbors with TV or anything else, nor did I hear them. A marvelous experience was breakfast in the Burlington diner. Not only was it a treat to eat in a diner that actually ran on the Zephyr routes on the Burlington RR, but also Charlotte creates amazingly delicious breakfasts. The ambience is terrific, and both Olaf and Charlotte go out of their way to make all the guests feel comfortable. I am looking forward to returning several times to experience the different themed cabooses. I highly recommend finding a way to spend time at the Red Caboose Getaway - and more than one night would be richly rewarding.
It was fun building the Red Caboose Getaway B&B but the real reward is having our guests(friends) enjoying it. A-L-L...A-B-O-A-R-D !, Stationmaster Olaf.

Our weekend getaway was such a treat spent relaxing in the vintage luxury of the Orient Express. After a challenging bike ride from Victoria BC Canada, via the Coho, the huge jetted tub was very welcome! The caboose was so beautifully decorated with the theme to the last detail with objects from the actual Orient Express and posters of the movie, Murder on the Orient Express- as well as the actual DVD to watch! Very comfortable bed and lovely linens made for a restful sleep. We loved the classic dining car with fine china and crystal on which we were served an elegant four course breakfast. The individual printed menu for our day was a lovely touch. All in all it was a wonderful time and hosts Charlotte and Olaf are to be commended for bringing this fantasy to life. Highly recommended!
4.6 on July 19, 2017
Original caboose. Odolf very knowledgeable about the railroad and answers all questions. The 4 course breakfast was outstanding! Not the usual. Charlotte and Odolf were outstanding hosts.
4.4 on July 19, 2017
My spouse and I stayed in the lavender themed caboose in July. It was an eclectic place for our anniversary. Olaf, and wife, Charlotte, were gracious hosts. Olaf greeted us, explained the local area, sites and restaurants to dine at. It was helpful. The setting with the other cabooses was close to town and John Wayne Marina where we had dinner one night. The room was comfortable except a mattress that could be replaced. If you want a shower, there is none in the room. The cupola gives you a nice view from the top of the caboose and provided a welcome breeze when the temperature got warmer. The two breakfasts were very good and enjoyed eating the vintage dining car. A memorable experience and weekend.
Thank you for the kind words and valuable input. For Track # 5 we elected to have a relaxing 2 person whirlpool tub instead of a "rush to work" shower. Even though the mattress is only 2 years old we are looking at replacing it with a more firm one.

On a bike trip through North West Washington, we stayed at the Red Caboose. The accommodation was fabulous. We all really enjoyed our rooms. They were cozy, had a coffee machine and fireplace and great old rustic charm. The breakfast was delicious and they accommodated my Paleo diet. We will go back.
4.8 on July 12, 2017
Stayed here and enjoyed every minute. A real change of pace from the normal overnight stay. The breakfast was excellent. Will stay again when back in the area. Thank you Olaf & Charlotte for welcoming our entire group.
5 on April 25, 2017
The wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay. It was our 38th wedding anniversary and the Oreint Express was perfect hide away for us. The food was very high class. We have already recommended this place to several friends.
5 on March 15, 2017
We had a fantastic time. It was a very pleasant place to stay and nostalgic. I remember getting to play in train cabooses at museums and it brought back some fun memories. Olaf and Charlotte are very gracious people.
4.6 on November 15, 2016
My wife and I stayed a night in the Lavender themed yellow caboose. The bed was comfortable, the caboose was cozy and the jetted tub romantic. In the morning we were treated to a delicious 4 course breakfast during which the owner/host visited with us at our table. We found him to be friendly and engaging, and we really enjoyed talking with him about the history of the B&B. Don't expect plush luxurious accommodations, but you can count on plenty of cozy comfort and authenticity in a unique setting. We will be back.
5 on November 14, 2016
Fun, place. Obviously lots of love went into creating it. We will be back.
5 on November 13, 2016
The Red Caboose Getaway is easily our favorite place in the Northwest. The breakfasts that Charlotte creates are exceptional and always make us excited to see what she comes up with next. Olaf's knowledge of his railway cars and fine attention to detail put the whole place over the top. With a strong focus on the fun and whimsical approach to the B&B scene, the Red Caboose delivers a great experience across the board. Love this place and will return many times over. We only have one car left to have stayed in them all. You can't go wrong staying here, ever.
5 on November 08, 2016
We stayed at the grape escape and it was wonderful. The room was perfect and the the breakfast was unique and fantastic. Olaf and charlettle always made sure if everything to our liking. On a whole I would recommend this to anyone.

I was able to pull off the surprise of a lifetime for my husband's birthday. He has always loved trains and while we traveled one time on the train for a vacation, I was not thrilled with it. This was my way of giving him the chance to sleep on a train and knew that I didn't have to feel the rails under me! We loved the themed trains and chose to spend our time in the Orient Express. The Jacuzzi tub was just what we needed to end a day of driving. The gas stove gave warmth throughout the car and the breakfast.... AMAZING! I had read in the reviews about the breakfast but could not have imagined it being this fabulous! Charlotte and Olaf were wonderful hosts and we so enjoyed talking to them while we were having breakfast. We had been asked about allergies and things that we could not eat but never thought of the one food that can't be taken with a specific medication my husband takes. He declined one of the courses as soon as he realized that he could not have that with his meds and within minutes, he had another "option" delivered to the table. We certainly were not expecting that. You won't be disappointed if you have a day or two at the Red Caboose Getaway in Sequim. I think we might go back and stay in the Grape Express next time!
5 on October 25, 2016
We wanted to stay in a caboose as we teach for a railcar class and travel the United States. Who would have thought that this is the best one in the U.S! Wow! A fantastic setting of several themed cabooses to choose from, all reasonably priced and every detail was thought out. From the softest bed, to the jacuzzi tub, robes, fireplace, themed movies, darling use of the captain chairs and ability to utilize the toilet area inside the caboose. It seemed as though we had stepped back in time. The best part was the breakfast! In a Zepher dining car! Beautifully and meticulously decorated, china, linen tablecloths, and Olaf, our waiter. His wife is a gormet chef who prepared a 5 course, mouth watering breakfast, with all the trimmings. We felt as though we were in 1st class all the way!
5 on October 14, 2016
A wonderful experience in the Western caboose! A truly once in a lifetime experience and well worth the money spent. The caboose was impeccably clean, beautifully decorated and very well and thoughtfully restored. The breakfast was delicious and Charlotte and Olaf were welcoming hosts! You will not regret spending part of your holiday here!
5 on October 08, 2016
Me and my husband stay here for our 1 year anniversary. It was one of the most wonderful places to stay and we will for sure be back. Thanks, Alisha & Tim

Just can't say enough good things to accurately describe our stay. See for yourself...you won't be disappointed!

Had a wonderful stay in the Casey Jones! Our room was cozy and even included a basket of freshly picked fruit which we thoroughly enjoyed. The dining car was next door and the breakfast was fabulous! We thoroughly enjoyed the wonderful meal and service, which included a nice view of the duck pond.
4.8 on September 26, 2016
We spent two nights at the Red Caboose Getaway and were thoroughly happy. Each caboose has a different theme interior, though they are all pretty cool. We stayed in the "grape escape" car which had a wine motif, and our host showed us through several other cars, and gave us the tour of all the little details. It was great fun. Breakfast is different every day and is phenomenal. They have a dining car where breakfast is served with white linen, china and nice period music. It was a gourmet experience. We love it and HIGHLY recommend it!
4.8 on September 13, 2016
The Red Caboose is amazing... All the details were thought by Olaf and Charlotte to make these cabooses beautiful, very comfortable, and so unique!

Simply elegant & unique.

We had a wonderful stay at the Red Caboose Getaway. Our caboose, The Western, was charming, filled with fascinating memorabilia and utterly unique. The bed was comfortable, we loved the claw-foot bathtub and everything we needed was available. Sitting in the engineers chairs with a glass of wine and a good book was a real highlight. As was the breakfast the next morning. Wow! That was something special. The dining car is a beautiful vintage piece with fine linens and china, period decorations, and fresh flowers. The food was amazing. Really, amazing! One of the best meals we had on our holiday. I'll be making the baked bananas next time I want to impress my guests! The owners, Charlotte and Olaf, were lovely, friendly, knowledgeable people who tolerated our endless questions with patience and grace :) We always look for places that differ from the boring standard hotel/motel and this place fit the bill! We are looking forward to coming back for a long weekend and highly recommend this Bed and Breakfast.
5 on August 17, 2016
My husband and I stayed in the Western themed caboose and it was amazing! Breakfast was outstanding and service phenomenal. We will be coming back soon!

A wonderful B&B experience. Not to be missed!
4.6 on August 06, 2016
We really enjoyed our stay and wished that we could have stayed longer. The host were very warm and welcoming. The breakfasts were terrific. Eating in the dining car in the morning reminded me of the time , many years ago, I traveled with my parents to Florida, watching the world go by, while having grits and eggs.

I already left a review on some site, but now have the opportunity that came on email to review again. This is fantastic, and I wished we could have stayed more than one night.

Upon arrival we were met and shown to our caboose. It surpassed our expectations. As we had cycled to the location from Port Angeles we were given directions to great restaurants and other sites to cycle to. We were also kindly loaned a tarp to keep our bikes dry for our morning ride to our next destination. The breakfast was lovely and we had what we could not finish wrapped up for a snack on the road. We would not hesitate to recommend the Red Caboose or to stay again on our next trip along the Olympic Discovery Trail.
4.6 on July 19, 2016
This is an amazing place. Old railway caboose units converted to boutique accomodation, sounds a little odd but infact works incredibly well. Each unit has it's own theme - we stayed in the "Western". Breakfast was "to die for and really defies description, you must try it for yourself. Olaf's interest and knowledge of American railway history really shows through. Highly recommended. AP. London. UK

This is a great place. Charlotte and Olaf are once again the best hosts. The breakfast was divine. I want to stay again, really soon.

We stayed overnight for some much needed relaxation away from our little one. The service was warm and inviting. The breakfast was delicious and filling.The room was whimsical,cozy & romantic! We will be back! :)
5 on July 01, 2016
Our stay at the Red Caboose was absolutely outstanding. Right off we knew it was was going to be amazing since our family is train obsessed and have ways wanted to stay in cabooses. We have 5 people, so we needed two cabooses. We stayed in the Grape Escape (which accommodates 3) and the Orient Express. The detail and creativity that our hosts had put into making each "room" beautiful and unique was greatly appreciated. However, this B and B is so much more than a bunch of old train cars. The cabooses were emaculate and comfortable with beautiful bathtubs and comfortable beds. The four course breakfast in the dining car was incredibly special. We were unprepared for how wonderful it would be. The food was delicious and catered appropriately to our vegetarian children. Charlotte and Olaf were charming as is their exquisite dining car. Our whole stay was incredible--definitely the highlight of our trip to Olympic National Park.

Stayed 2 nights. The railroad cars were a bit rustic. But hey, they are original, old, and are exactly as promised. Besides. It was fun. As To service, it was great. It's just Olaf and Charlotte, the owners were exceptionally personable and helpful. Breakfast? Wow. I've stayed in some pretty upscale places and have never had been fed a meal that nice. It'll take days to get back on our diet. The food, coffee, and beverages were 5 stars easily. I'd stay there again.

3.6 on June 07, 2016
This was a surprise getaway for my husbands birthday. This was unique and fun. The breakfast was incredible, outstanding, and amazing! Olaf also gave us a tour of those cabooses that were not occupied, impressive to theme and decor. Olaf and Charlotte are the original owners who purchased property and made this B&B happen 16 years ago, we found out.
4.4 on June 06, 2016
We had a great time celebrating our 2nd wedding anniversary. I loved how our caboose was themed. My favorite part was the jetted tub. The breakfast was beyond what we imagined it would be like. They really go the extra mile. We will deffinetly be staying here again!!!
5 on June 02, 2016
What an incredible stay in the Red Caboose Getaway! Perched on tracks in the center of an immaculately manicured property, the cabooses are brightly painted and obviously tended with loving hands. Inside our wine-country themed caboose ("The Grape Escape"), we discovered many amenities that transformed our "escape-the-stress-of-life" weekend into an "I-feel-amazingly-refreshed!" weekend. From bubble bath to a fully-stocked coffee/tea station, this hideaway didn't disappoint. One of our favorite thoughtful details was the cleverly curated collection of wine-themed DVDs, from which we enjoyed Bottleshock, starring Alan Rickman. The 5-course breakfast in the Zephyr dining car was deliciously inventive - no menu cliche's here! - and had us saying "wow!" at each course. We especially enjoyed the many framed, antique dining car menus lining the walls - a glimpse into yesteryear. If you enjoy unique accommodations that spark the imagination, but don't want to skimp on traditional comforts, then the Red Caboose Getaway is the place for you.

We have recommended this B&B to all of our friends and family. You will love your stay!!!
4.2 on May 04, 2016
My husband and I stayed at the Red Caboose getaway in the 'western caboose'. It was so charming. Every little detail was thought of, from bedside chocolates to western themed DVDs to watch. The bed was comfortable and we awoke to birds singing and frogs croaking in the center pond. The breakfast was amazing - 3 courses plus little 'desert' bite. We are already thinking of who else we can take there this year - and when we can stay again! NOTE: they do not take kids younger than 12 years.

My husband and I stayed in the Lavender Limited car of the Red Caboose Getaway and we had a great time. The car was charming and cute. There was more room inside than we had expected, also very clean. The breakfast, all four courses of it, was delicious. I'm lactose-intolerant and they were able to accommodate my food allergy with no problems. We would definitely go back. Highly recommend!

First off id like to note that the app would not let me give 5 stars on the review categories otherwise I would've across the board. So now for the Red Caboose Getaway... We absolutely loved it! The caboose's were really really cool! And the accommodations were fantastic. My fiancee and I stayed in the "Grape Escape". It was wonderful! Very comfortable, quiet and extremely unique. The location is great as well. They're close enough to town for convienance, but also Just off the path enough to make you feel as tho your away from society. The breakfast they serve is second to none! Hands down the best I've ever had. They also have a small pond with a bunch of ducks. We fed them a little wheat bread in the mornings.( very fun) All together this place makes for a very memorable trip. Charlotte and Olaf are wonderful folks that clearly take pride in what they do and it reflects in the getaway. Altogether I give the expirance an 11 out of 10. It's very unique and a great change vs the general hotel type stay. Go to the Red Caboose Getaway!!!!!
5 on March 12, 2016
This B & B is the most original we have seen. The food and service are top notch, the property is beautiful and the caboose offers a level of privacy that is not available at a standard B & B.
5 on March 03, 2016
This year, my husband and I stayed in The Orient Express rail car at the Red Caboose B&B. Everything was perfect during our stay. The bed was large and comfy; the hot tub, roomy and bubbly and with soft towels and robes to use afterwards; the DVD selections were old movies with excellent plots; everything was clean--even up top where we sat in chairs overlooking the duck pond and could watch the waterfowls' antics. As for breakfast, Charlotte proved to be a true chef by the way everything was prepared and one's palate pleasured. And Olaf? He served us with a wide smile and engagingly, told us some fine tales of his and Charlotte's adventures running a B&B. DO give this one a try! -Morris and Sharon
3.8 on March 02, 2016
My husband is very resistant to B&Bs, but this one had trains! He had a blast talking with the proprietor about the various railway cars. He was even impressed with the western decor in our caboose. It was comfy, cozy, clean, and filled with amusing little touches. The dining car (yes, a real one from 1934) was amazing - beautiful linens, china and silver. The food was three courses of gastronomic adventure - fare that I have never seen an any other B&B. We will definitely be back, and my husband won't whine about it.
4.4 on February 23, 2016
Special valentine weekend surprise and we would go back. Although a little pricey for just a normal getaway, it was very memorable and we have recommended to friends and family.
5 on February 21, 2016
We had a wonderful time .We will gladly return. The caboose was cozy and decorated with original railroad memorabilia.We were given an interesting history tour of the railroad cars onsite. The dining car and food was outstanding and the chef should publish a cookbook because the breakfast was delicious, very fresh and creative. We highly recommend.

We loved our weekend getaway at the Red Caboose Getaway in Sequim. The "Orient Express" caboose on Track #2 was fabulous and unique and Charlotte and Olaf are the perfect hosts. Breakfast in the "Silver Eagle" dining car is always a meal to remember, five-star service and a culinary delight, sure to please all. We can't wait to return and check out another caboose... perhaps the "Grape Escape!" - Leslie & Walter

My husband and I had a great anniversary at red caboose getaway. We stayed in the "grape escape", the wine country themed yellow chessie system caboose...loved it inside an out. The bathtub was amazing. The breakfasts were delicious, and Chef Charlotte went out of her way to take care of my husband's dietary needs. Stationmaster Olaf was a wonderful host.

What a unique and wonderful B & B. The owners are absolutely committed to making your stay a memory you will keep forever. The room was unique and very aptly decorated. Anything we might have needed was there. Breakfast was delicious and served effortlessly although we know it's a lot of work for them. It was also very delicious. We are telling all our friends encouraging them to make a visit.

We stayed in the "Grape Escape" Caboose and it was clean, well appointed, comfortable and super quiet from outside noises. The breakfast was absolutely delicious and it was a treat to have a gourmet meal in a restored 1934 dining car. Charlotte & Olaf went out of their way to make our stay fun and interesting.

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!
5 on August 13, 2015
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.

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.

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.

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!
4.8 on May 25, 2015
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!
5 on May 25, 2015
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
Thank you for the kind review. We have reviewed our cancellation policy and have shortened the time to 2 weeks. Thank you for your suggestion. A-L-L......A-B-O-A-R-D !! Thank you, Stationmaster Olaf.

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
5 on May 17, 2015
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.

The breakfast in the 1937 dining car was outstanding. The white tablecloths, the handsome waiter, and the FOOD. The breakfast was expertly prepared and beautifully presented. As if spending the night in an authentic caboose wasn't enough, the morning meal was another highlight of the experience.
5 on May 11, 2015
Immerse yourself in a restful and unique experience. The caboose room was fabulous. The attention to detail was truly enjoyable. The breakfast was delicious. I only stayed one night, but would have loved to have stayed longer. This is a First Class experience you should not overlook.
5 on May 06, 2015
We have a lovely stay and the proprietors of the establishment are extremely pleasant and helpful. Food was absolutely delicious and changes every day. Cabooses are done up very nicely. I would definitely recommend staying.

It was a true getaway with the friendly, heartfelt service and the breakfast was delicious for eyes and mouth.

Amazing breakfast, fantastic themed caboose with such thought and attention to detail. Couldn't have been improved.
3.8 on April 15, 2015
The stay at the Red Caboose was very fun!. We stayed in the western-themed caboose and I enjoyed looking at all the different treasures the owners had found to decorate. It was a neat experience. The breakfast was A MAZE ing. Not only was the food A++++, but we really enjoyed talking with Olaf, the owner about the area and trains. It was just a really neat experience!
5 on April 09, 2015
Stayed here of a unique experience for my wife's birthday, Great concept very relaxing atmosphere. Charlotte and Olaf are great hosts. We've never had such an elegant breakfast. We will plan another weekend getaway trip.
5 on April 07, 2015
Everything you want when staying away from home: comfort, cleanliness, quiet, privacy, and great food!
5 on April 01, 2015
The purpose of our weekend at the Red Caboose B & B was meant to be memorable. The Caboose rather than a motel/hotel option was ideal because of the privacy plus the bed was extra comfy. But the bonus of the B & B was the elegant serving of the breakfast. The china table settings plus the silver dinnerware and each unique serving piece. Very, very elegant!! Each of the four servings were presently as in a very high class and expensive restaurant. One felt very unique and "wealthy" to have the special attention in the Burlington Zephyr dining car. The entire weekend was a special treat to always be remembered!
5 on March 14, 2015
This was our second stay and we just love it. The dining and service is outstanding and we recommend it to everyone we know.

We went for our wedding aniversary and really enjoyed it.
4.8 on March 02, 2015
My husband and I went tot he Red Caboose B &B because we liked the idea of staying in a train car and wanted something not too far from home. We live in WA, and have passed the RC B&B several times. We chose to stay in the Great Escape, the winery themed train. It was beautiful, clean and very thoughtfully decorated, not overdone. We loved the little perks: the chocolates, the mini fridge placed in a wine barrel, the HUGE soaking tub, the heated tile floors in the tub area, the wi-fi, the electric fireplace and the tasteful wineries decor. Our welcome was very warm and we were shown our room and even given an exterior tour of the other trains, along with description of two trains that were yet to be renovated. We slept well on the very comfortable bed. The town of Sequim is quiet and not very awake on a Sunday morning, but just a little further are the mountains and bigger towns. It was nice to not have a lot of noise by the trains, so the serene atmosphere was pleasant. The three course breakfast was one of my favorite things about our stay. It was fabulous. Both my husband and I loved the local roast coffee, the hand prepared juice, the delicious and creative courses and the to die for fresh baked bread. We cannot say enough to recommend this wonderful, creative over-night adventure. Try it out for your next vacation, possibly when the lavender fields start to bloom!
5 on March 02, 2015
We loved our stay at the Red caboose getaway... It was an experience to remember. The attention to detail was amazing. We were thankful to Olaf in Charlotte for such an outstanding dinning car meal... The two person tub, the real flowers, the cozy fire place... We cant wait to take another ride. It was a one night stay to get away from our normal lives, it was so quite and relaxing... We LOVED it!
4.4 on March 01, 2015
It was wonderful. Stayed in the Orient Express. Olaf and Charlotte were great. Charlotte is an amazing chef. Maybe the best breakfast I've ever had! The room was amazing, my only complaint is it got a little cold at night. But they provided plenty of blankets, and it was winter after all. Loved the Jacuzzi tub, and the DVDs they provided.
5 on February 19, 2015
Had a lovely time in the "Western" caboose. Owners were friendly and knowledgeable about the area and breakfast was fantastic!
4.6 on January 23, 2015
My wife and I visited Red Caboose last fall. We were blown away by Olaf the friendly conductor who showed us around the rail yard. Everything is authentically restored. The breakfast was the quality dining of years gone by, candle lit breakfast table and lots of wonderful breakfast surprises, delicious! I loved the wild west Caboose, I think next time we will stay in the Orient Express. Thanks Olaf and Charlotte
5 on January 17, 2015
We see the RCG is for sale, sad day. If you get a chance to have Olaf and his wife host your stay, please do so. We stayed a few years ago, it is an experience we tell all our friends, a memory we talk about all the time and will never forget.
Thank you for your kind review. While we have immensely enjoyed building our place and entertaining our guests( friends) the last 15 years it's gotten more than this 71 year old can handle. it's time to turn the throttle over to new hands. Stationmaster Olaf

Sleeping on a vintage caboose should be on everyone's Bucket List especially if it is in wonderful Sequim, WA! Olaf and Charlotte are commended for making our 2 night stay a special memory. I will recommend Red Caboose Getaway to all who find themselves in the Pacific NW.
4.4 on December 14, 2014
My husband and I went for our ten year anniversary and we were so pleased on the way home we were planning or next trip. Breakfast is elegant and simply to die for it was so fantastic.
5 on November 05, 2014
Fun setting for anyone, but especially for a railroad buff. Beautifully appointed cabooses. Great breakfast in the dining car really set the experience apart.
5 on October 21, 2014
Riding on track #9 was OUTSTANDING!!! The accommodations were not only comfortable, cozy but unique! Chef Charlotte prepared delicious and healthy breakfast served in an elegant dining car. Station Manager Olaf served us with attention to our every need. Highly recommend you experience the Red Caboose. Thanks Olaf and Charlotte for making this a favorite on our "bucket list"! All Aboard for a 5-star experience!
5 on October 09, 2014
The caboose was such a delight to stay in, the bed was cozy, the fireplace on created a romantic atmosphere, and the soaker tub for 2 was so relaxing I found myself falling asleep. The breakfasts are the most amazing breakfasts we have ever had, you will leave so full you will end up back in your caboose for a little rest to try to digest!! Charlotte and Olaf went above and beyond to make our stay comfortable, catering to dietary restrictions, and providing delicious fruit grown in their orchard in our room!
4.2 on October 08, 2014
The Red Caboose Getaway was a great place to celebrate our anniversary. Stayed in the Lavender caboose, the tub was heavenly.. The breakfast made by our hosts was to live another day for, very delicious, took into account our needs, would recommend for a getaway, that's different..
4.8 on September 29, 2014
The accommodation was over the top, but the innkeepers and the quality of the breakfasts was just way over the top. Great stay, and we would recommend to anyone looking for a very different stay in Sequim.
5 on September 27, 2014
We read about the Red Caboose Getaway in Sunset Magazine so we decided to spend a night. What a great experience and would highly recommend it to anyone wanting an unique place to stay. We want to return to the Red Caboose Getaway and bring our bikes to ride the Olympic Discovery Trail nearby.
4.8 on September 25, 2014
This was our second stay at the Red Caboose and we love it! Charlotte and Olaf go out of their way to be sure everything is great. The rooms are adorable and breakfast is always a culinary delight! I only wish the bathroom had a handheld shower along with the tub.
4.6 on September 20, 2014
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!
4.8 on September 14, 2014
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!
4.6 on September 10, 2014
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,
4.6 on September 07, 2014
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.
4.8 on September 06, 2014
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.

Easy access to Squim and area. Quiet location.the cabooses were cozy and fun.
5 on August 31, 2014
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.
4.4 on August 30, 2014
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.
4.8 on August 25, 2014
We had to arrive late - and they were great about accomodating us. Great night in s fun atmosphere, then a wonderful breakfast! Thanks!
4.8 on August 21, 2014
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.
4.4 on August 20, 2014
Unique and enjoyable. Breakfast was out of this world.
5 on August 18, 2014
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

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.
4.8 on August 14, 2014
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.
5 on August 11, 2014
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.
4.4 on August 06, 2014
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.
4.8 on August 06, 2014
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.
4.8 on August 04, 2014
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.
5 on July 25, 2014
Went to Squim for a wedding and stayed at the Red Caboose. Had a great time there. The Jacuzzi tub was fantastic. The breakfast was very good. Everything fresh and made on the spot. Will do it again.
4.8 on July 20, 2014
We heard about Red Caboose Getaway on TV. We always ride trains where ever we go so we thought this would be a neat place to stay. We were right! We chose the Western caboose, complete with bullet holes in the windows, swinging door to the bath and all the John Wayne movies yoiu can handle. The bed was comfortable and the fog came in during the night and cooled us down wonderfully. The breakfast was all the anyone could ask for. Four courses and the food was wonderful. Olaf and Charlotte are fine hosts. We didn't see much of Charlotte except at breakfast but Olaf was full of information and enthusiam. We really injoyed our time there and would recommend it to all our friends (we already have!).
4.6 on July 16, 2014
My wife and I have stayed here twice. Once in the Circus room, and once in the Orient Express. We love the themes. The only thing I would add to either room is a removable shower head for washing hair. Olaf and Charlotte definitely work hard to make it an enjoyable experience. The pond and all the ducks definitely add to a scenic and fun place. The breakfasts are classy, artful, and extremely delicious!
5 on July 08, 2014
Our second time here. Perfect. And delicious!
5 on June 28, 2014
We came to sequin looking to do something different with our friends. I suggested staying in a caboose vs. a hotel for some fun. Visiting the red caboose getaway was amazingly fun. We stayed in the Casey jones caboose and our friends stayed in the lavender limited. We loved our rooms. I would have never imaged that the train would have a very comfortable bed. I slept like a log in deep slumber. The details that Olaf has come up with in each room shows that he truly puts a lot of effort into the caboose. It was also really nice that all the cabooses weren't linked together. They all had there own little sections surrounding the duck pond with their own parking spot and little sitting area. Breakfast next morning was SUPER amazing! Charlotte is amazing in the kitchen. Hearing that Charlotte wakes up at 4am to start making breakfast made me feel like she put in a lot of care to detail. Seeing inside the silver bullet made me feel like I was special. The feeling like you were in a five star resturant. Coming back home made me miss charlottes cooking very much. We will come back again for sure.
4.4 on June 25, 2014
Olaf was friendly and had the room available for us when we came in. Breakfast was amazing and all homemade. Very cool train caboose idea.
4.8 on June 24, 2014
We go every year and stay in a different themed caboose
4.8 on June 22, 2014
I don't usually write reviews, but I decided to write one because we had such a great experience at the Red Caboose Getaway and I want others to be able to experience as well. First of all, the idea of staying in your own themed caboose is so much fun! We stayed in the Western and the decor was definitely in the style of the living in the Old West. Additionally, breakfast was delicious and all of the personal touches Olaf and Charlotte add makes it even better. They were very accommodating to account for allergies and/or food preferences. Even though we really enjoyed staying in the Western caboose, I hope to return soon to experience another caboose!
5 on June 20, 2014
This is a wonderful place. We were amazed by the attention to detail and the creativity. Olaf and Charlotte are wonderful hosts. I think this was the best breakfast we have ever had at a B&B. We also loved the pond and birdfeeders. We hope to return.
5 on June 11, 2014
We had the best time. Olaf and Charlotte are fabulous and they have created a wonderful place to stay and enjoy.
4.6 on June 05, 2014
Olaf and Charlotte seem to really enjoy what they do. They are so pleasant and gracious. The first morning we were not going to be there for breakfast so they put together a sack breakfast to take with us. They are very accommodating and great people. The four course breakfast in their dining car is amazing. They put a lot of thought into what they provide and change the menu every day. Such a wonderful experience. We will be back! :-)
4.8 on June 03, 2014
We stayed in the western caboose and were totally amazed at the attention to detail. Charlotte and Olaf were the best innkeepers; very friendly and knowledgeable. The breakfast was definitely 5 Star. I enjoyed the oversized claw tub. We will return again to stay in the upcoming Vegas theme.
4.4 on May 08, 2014
I took my boyfriend here for our two year anniversary, and everything was lovely except for the hosts. We felt like we were judged unfairly simply because we are a younger couple, (in our twenties). They were both polite but seemed curt and suspicious. There was another couple in the dining cart with us for breakfast, and Olaf and Charlotte were noticeably friendlier towards them, even though they were late for the meal. We were both well mannered and clean, dressed nicely, etc. There was no reason for us to have been treated that way.
5 on May 03, 2014
This was our second time staying here and definitely will stay again. Our goal is to stay in every one of the Cabooses.
4.8 on April 27, 2014
For anyone who is the least bit interested in trains, this is a must stay place. Olaf and his wife, Charlotte, have restored several old cabooses, each with a different theme. Be sure to ask for a tour of the cars as they are just delightful. The cars are artfully arranged around a small pond at the quiet end of Sequim. The bed was very comfortable and the fresh flower touches added to the ambiance. Breakfast, in a 1937 dining car, was outstanding! Be aware that there is only one caboose with a standup shower as the rest either have jacuzzi tubs or tubs with handheld showers. Thick terry robes were available for our use. Olaf and Charlotte were very warm and welcoming. This was a unique experience and we would certainly return the next time we visit the Olympic Peninsula. P. Fiaccone
3.8 on April 26, 2014
Not your ordinary B & B staying in a converted caboose! This was great fun and a very different experience for us - we loved it! Also the best breakfast of a 6 day trip!
4.8 on April 23, 2014
This was a great adventure! Sleeping in a caboose that is quiet, clean and comfy is an experience I am so glad I got to have. We stayed in the western themed caboose and the decoarations were perfect! The breakfast was outstanding and Olaf and Charlotte made us feel like family. Highly recommended!
5 on April 17, 2014
My husband and I have been going to the Red Caboose Getaway since 2006. The rooms are beautiful and comfortable, the food is up there with the best you'll ever eat anywhere, the service is wonderful and Charlotte and Olaf are just lovely people in general. A stay at the Red Caboose Getaway is a wonderful all around B&B experience, especially for train enthusiasts and those nostalgic for times gone by.
5 on March 23, 2014
We had a lovely stay and incredible breakfast and just enjoyed every aspect of this unique place. They have left as much intact as possible inside the train cars but turned it into a gorgeous room with all the amenities you could ask for, even a gas fireplace. Thank you for the lovely memory.
5 on March 22, 2014
WE TRULY ENJOYED OUR STAY. THE CABOOSES ARE GORGEOUS AND COMFORTABLE. THE BREAKFAST WAS DELICIOUS AND UNIQUE. I VERY MUCH WILL BE RECOMMENDING IT TO MY FRIENDS AND FAMILY.
5 on March 09, 2014
I took my brother and his wife here because he loves trains. I on the other hand, like comfortable stays and great breakfasts. Everyone was happy! My room had a small gas fireplace to keep the caboose cozy on a very rainy night. Our bathroom had a large jetted tub for relaxing. Of course we had a flat screen and WiFi. What made our stay truly special were all the little details Olaf has added to each caboose. He stays true to each theme, adding special touches to each car. Breakfast was elegant in the beautiful dining car, right down to the china. The food was fresh, hot and delicious. The warm orange pull-apart bread was to die for and our breakfast ended with chocolate covered strawberries! I would choose Red Caboose again. It is perfect for a romantic getaway and is close to Sequim and Port Angeles.
5 on March 01, 2014
We just had the pleasure of spending our 22 Anniversary at the Red Caboose in the Orient Express. Stationmaster Olaf greeted us and gave us a personalized tour. We enjoyed the history and his love of trains. We were able to watch and feed the ducks in the duck pond. The Dining Car was elegant and Olaf & Charlotte served a 4 course breakfast that was the best we've ever had. It was very romantic and a memorable experience. We will definitely plan another trip. We've stayed a lot of places through the years, and this is very high on our list as one of the best! We are recommending this to all our friends.
5 on February 26, 2014
My husband and I took my brother, a train buff and his wife to Red Caboose Getaway. Olaf was so helpful and knowledgable about trains and their history. Our cabooses were roomy, very clean, and filled with special details. The Grape Escape was spacious and the soaking tub was so special. Breakfast in the dining car was like stepping back in time. Olaf has certainly created an elegant breakfast served in a beautiful vintage dining car. The food and ambience were delightful. I cannot wait to return and check out the other cabooses!
5 on February 19, 2014
If you like trains and a whimsical environment, with good food and great staff: hop aboard.
4.6 on February 18, 2014
Had a great time, will do it again for sure. Close to town and walking distance to the discovery trail, a wonderful treat. The breakfast was defiantly a treat, nice 4 course and service was right on the money.
4.4 on November 27, 2013
Olaf introduces himself and gave us a map of the area and some great dining reccommedations! Gave us a tour of all the cabooses and their history. The next day Charlotte made us a fantastic 4 course breakfast, minus the peppers I don't like. It was all in a Art Deco period dining car. Awesome!!!!!!! It was such a personal detail to attention that made it wonderful. Can't wait to go back, just have to figure out which caboose is next, so many choices. Thank you to Charlotte and Olaf, fantastic hosts!!!
5 on November 27, 2013
We stayed in the Grape Escape themed caboose. The interior was beautifuly done.
5 on November 24, 2013
Best place we've stayed by far. We celebrated our one year anniversary there, and it trumped our honeymoon. Olaf greeted us, and showed us our room personally. His excitment and enthusiasm for trains is infectious, and his cabooses' (we stayed in Casey Jones) decor is well executed. It was warm, homey, and the decor was natural, minimal, and historical. The breakfast was a delight. It felt like we'd gone back in time, and Charlotte served us the most beautiful, tasty, home-made five course meal we ever had. Charlotte even made a point to ensure everything I ate was dairy free, a service one rarely receives. Olaf and Charlotte have a true gift for hospitality. It is well worth a stay! We hope to return, and have already recommended it our friends and family.
5 on November 16, 2013
We had an amazing time at the Red Caboose getaway. We stayed in the lavender room. It was perfect. I would highly recommend this Bed & Breakfast to anyone, whether or not you are a train fanatic.
5 on November 13, 2013
A very unique experience! Each caboose is different and fun in its own right. Olaf, the Stationmaster and his wife, Charlotte are wonderful hosts and make you feel at home. The food was exceptional!!!! We look forward to our next visit.
4.8 on November 06, 2013
The friend who recommended this B&B called the breakfast "life changing." Accurate! Staying in a themed caboose itself is remarkably charming and unique. Olaf and Charlotte pay keen attention to little details that make a visit perfect.
4.4 on November 04, 2013
A wonderful breakfast and a fun place to stay.

We were made to feel very special and welcomed the whole time we were there. The caboose was elegantly decorated to depict the times of the western era. The breakfast every morning was to die for. Our Hosts were absolutely wonderful in making the stay fabulous. We have recommended this B&B to everyone we know.
5 on October 29, 2013
We had a great stay. Olaf & Charlotte are magnificent hosts. They had great tips on places to eat and things to do. We Will Be Back.
5 on October 28, 2013
Olaf and Charlotte are excellent hosts. I liked the fact that each train was self contained (no sharing bathrooms). Such attention to detail in each train, we stayed in the lavender and loved it. The breakfast each morning set your whole day, how wonderfully delicious! My palate is not the same. We can't wait to go back!
5 on October 24, 2013
Wonderful experience! Great property, great food and great hosts! How often can u sleep in your own train? Definitely a must stay property!
2.8 on October 16, 2013
it was a change from the everyday routine. the caboose idea is great but I think more detail is needed to the outside appearance of the property and caboose's the Breakfast needs to have more substance to it as well.
We are sorry that our 4 course gourmet breakfast elegantly served in our private dining car did not satisfy this guest. We have added 3 new cabooses which are undergoing renovations. Stationmaster Olaf

Awesome. Enjoyed the caboose! Great breakfast. Great service. Highly recommend it!

This is our second time at the Red Caboose Getaway B&B, and certainly won't be the last. We have now stayed in the "Orient Express" and the "Lavender Theme" cabooses. They both were wonderful, including a two person Jacuzzi tub! The breakfast in the beautifully restored 1934(?) dinning car is so lovely, and the food is Five Star rating! She is so accommodating, even made my husband an amazing gluten free meal. Olaf is so gracious, friendly and very knowledgeable train enthusiast. It is so peaceful and private. We love it.

They should get rid of the Circus theme. The caboose bed-and-breakfast was awesome. The breakfast was above first-class dining! The owner was great he even played in character while serving breakfast and checking you in.
5 on September 16, 2013
We so enjoyed our stay in the Casey Jones Caboose. Olaf and Charlotte were fabulous hosts - knowledgeable, witty, and authentic. The four course breakfast was fabulous. The highlight of our trip to WA.

Unique and fun stay. Also great breakfast.

We had a wonderfull stay in the yellow caboose and a Amazing breakfast.

A total treat!
5 on August 29, 2013
Accommodations were way beyond my expectations. Caboose's are cozy, fun, and romantic. Gourmet breakfast was fa-nominal!
5 on August 29, 2013
Unique and a must for train aficionados, and the breakfast is to die for! We wanted to try something 'different', and the Red Caboose more than filled the bill. When we checked in Olaf shared a little about the caboose we would be in, then collected an ancient key and gave us a detailed tour of our caboose - the Casey Jones. Walls covered with memorabilia, a stack of train-related movies on DVD, a mini fridge with bottled water nicely chilled and the most comfortable bed... Olaf knows all the places to eat and can recommend according to your interest. I was directed to a nearby lane lined on both sides with blackberry bushes, where I quickly picked all that I could eat! Breakfast is served in an old dining car, and was a four course affair, all First Class - fine china, snowy linens, and a meal guaranteed to delight. After breakfast we were given a tour of all of the cabooses (we were the only ones there) and quickly resolved to return enough times so we could stay in every one of the cabooses!
4.4 on August 26, 2013
Quaint, cosy and very comfortable. Spectacular breakfast, friendly hosts. We will definitely return. The Red Caboose is right on the beautiful Olympic Discovery Trail, which we navigated from Port Angeles. this is a journey that I would recommend to all cyclists
4.4 on August 26, 2013
A wonderful experience, Olaf was very knowledgeable when it comes to trains and Charlotte makes a mean breakfast using local fresh berries. Dietary needs were met and as I filled them out and were confirmed by Olaf on check in.
5 on August 25, 2013
Olaf does an outstanding job as Conductor at check in to waiter for the incredible breakfast in the luxury dining car. We enjoyed our stay greatly. The gourmet breakfast was wonderful, served with perfected elegance. The caboose fun to stay in. Clearly a labor of love, the attention to detail was impressive.
4.6 on August 23, 2013
Had a wonderful stay. Very clean, quiet, fun, the tub on the orient express was to "die for", and the meal was exceptional. Service and attention to detail shows as coming from a family that has a passion for the place. Recommend. Surrounding area very fun to explore wish we had another night to stay.
4.8 on August 20, 2013
This my 3rd visit and they never let me down...I do girlfriend getaway weekends... we shop, we watch movies, we go to the local winery.... The weather is great!! They are always so wonderful to me and remember things about me... I'm planning my next adventure, by myself...
5 on August 15, 2013
The Room: You step into another world where every item is a collector's piece and an enhancement of the theme. Even the DVDs are relevant, esp. the very entertaining "Bottle Shock." The Breakfast: Four outstanding courses in an Art Deco setting. Vegetarian? No problem. The offerings are only slightly reworked and stay just as wonderful. The only thing missing is the clickity-clack.of the wheels. If you want to be whisked away from it all to another place and time, the Red Caboose will do that for you, in style.
4.8 on August 14, 2013
What an incredible experience. We stayed in the Orient Express and loved every minute of it. Charlotte and Olaf were exceptional hosts and knew the area very well - be sure to get their recommendations for restaurants in the area. The accomodations were superb - where else can you stay in a real caboose??? The breakfast was beyond any expectaions we had - excellent doesn't even fully describe the experience. The food and the atmosphere were incredible. We're looking forward to a return visit so we can try another caboose.

An unforgetable breakfast
4.6 on August 05, 2013
We were in the Circus Car. Lots of attention to detail in decorating. The breakfast was elegant!
5 on August 05, 2013
Excellent accomodations we especially liked sitting in the tub with the jets relaxing us.All the food is made from scratch
4.4 on August 05, 2013
The stay was more than we could of dreamed. The breakfast was 5 star, unique and delish! Would recommend to all ans will definitly stay again.
4.6 on August 04, 2013
This was our second stay at the RCG, and in the Casey Jones caboose. This caboose, like all of them, is a bit space-limited and has a queen bed, which can be an adjustment if you really want a king, But it was comfortable in a cozy way and well temperature-regulated. The only misgivings we had with this unit were the lack of a tub (corner shower instead), and a redundant sink which makes the toilet room VERY cramped (and unusable for big people.) Breakfast in the dining car was exceptionally good, served by the owners with a personal touch. Even if you're not a railroading buff, this is a unique B-&-B.
5 on August 04, 2013
Cabooses whimsically restored by a train lover with an eye for detail. The four course breakfast is up there in our top three B & B experiences.
5 on August 03, 2013
We had stayed here before several years ago and love it then and loved it once again! Olaf and his family are incredible hosts and are very friendly and informative about the area.
5 on August 01, 2013
This was our first bed and breakfast experience. Loved the privacy of the individual cars. The food was amazing. Loved every minute of our stay and wish we could have stayed longer.
4.2 on July 30, 2013
Had a great time.
4.0 on July 29, 2013
The interior of the caboose was outstanding. We had a nice quiet stay. The breakfast that Olaf provided for us was wonderful. I'm sure we will be back next year !
4.8 on July 28, 2013
We stayed in the "Western" caboose and it was charming down to the boots on the floor. The lavender soap was lovely and the sheets smelled so nice. The dining car was dressed impeccably and the food was delicious and elegantly presented.
5 on July 22, 2013
We have passed by the cabooses since they first started to bring them in, and only recently discovered that it was a B & B. With a family reunion in the area my wife and I decided to give it a try, and we were very glad we did. The 4 course breakfast in the dining car was amazing, and staying in a caboose was just great fun. They have done a fantastic job of restoring them. The staff was friendly and helpful.
5 on July 15, 2013
We spent another wonderful weekend at the Red Caboose Getaway, again in the Orient Express Caboose. Charlotte and Olaf are absolutely wonderful hosts and the food for breakfast is to die for! An added plus is always having a menu to take home as a momento. Ducks in the pond, birds at the feeders, sunshine and blue sky! What an amazing place to kick back and relax for a long weekend. Can't wait for our next "ride"!
5 on July 10, 2013
We stayed in the Lavender Limited on 8 July 2013 and the Grape Escape on 9 July 2013 and had a great time. We really enjoyed both nights. Olaf's vivid imagination, dedication, and hard work have really given these old cabooses new lives. Each has it's own theme carried out through all the decor right down to the selection of DVDs supplied in each caboose (examples: The Lavender Hill Mob, and The Grapes of Wrath). Breakfast, served in a period dining car, was a special treat. We'll be talking about our stay for quite some time and will definitely recommend The Red Caboose Getaway to any of our friends who are looking for a special time away from home.
5 on July 10, 2013
We enjoyed a weekend away on the Olympic Peninsula, and thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Red Caboose. The caboose was so much fun, and the breakfast served by owners Olaf and Charlotte was utterly delicious. The guest book in the caboose was written in by many returning visitors, and I can see why--we can hardly wait for our next visit!
4.2 on July 10, 2013
A novel concept that extends the typical bed and breakfast.
4.6 on July 08, 2013
Stayed in car next to dining car. Accomodations comfortable and clean, unique experience but a little pricey ($175+).
5 on July 08, 2013
The caboose are very unique and restored to an excellent condition. The service and food in the dining car was wonderful. Fun getaway.
4.8 on July 07, 2013
We used a Groupon and basically received half off our 2 night stay. Even if we didn't receive half off, it would be worth it! The breakfast was a amazing! If you are wanting a "light in calorie" breakfast, don't bother! The cabooses were immaculate, and had everything we needed. Wonderful stay.
4.8 on July 07, 2013
this was much more than we expected. The caboose was great and very comfortable. Very fun to climb up to the conductor chairs. The breakfast for both days was incredible and the dining car setting was delightful. We enjoyed it and have told all our friends, you must go here!
4.6 on July 05, 2013
We had a wonderful stay at the Red Caboose, the first night of our honeymoon week. The attention to detail was wonderful, Olaf was so helpful in directing us to a good restaurant for dinner and Charlotte's breakfast was incredible. What a fun way to start our marriage!
5 on July 05, 2013
This was a gift stay for my husband who is a train nut. We loved it! Service was great. Lots to see in the area. We will be back.
4.4 on July 04, 2013
Staying at the Red Caboose Getaway is much more than just crashing somewhere for the night. The themed cabooses show attention to detail in every nook and cranny, and the proprietors maintain an atmosphere in which we felt like both honored guests and a longtime friends. You will leave this place knowing a little more about American RR history and also what a first class breakfast is like (its amazing, btw). Note: our stay included a very warm day (upper 80s F) and we were concerned that the caboose wouldn't cool down in the evening (there was no A/C in our caboose), but we needn't have been concerned - there are plenty of windows in the cabooses and an in-room fan which helped to cool our room quickly.
3.8 on July 04, 2013
Such a fun experience to stay in an old caboose! The best part was the dining car where we were served a wonderful gourmet breakfast each morning. Proximity to Olympic Mountain range also a plus!
5 on July 04, 2013
The Red Caboose is a husband and wife run Bed & Breakfast. Everything about the Red Caboose was exceptional. Each caboose is theme decorated. We stayed in the Lavender decorated caboose. Olaf took us to our caboose and told us everything about its history. He showed us important operation tips. He is very knowledgable about the history of each caboose on his property. My husband loves trains, so it was perfect for us. Breakfast was served in the dining car that was set up just like a dining car on an operational train. The breakfast was a memorable experience. Charlotte prepared a gourmet breakfast that was top chef quality. Her attention to the presentation of the meal was exceptional. Breakfast was served by Olaf. He was dressed in perfect dining car attire. Olaf has a great sense of humor which is well suited for his Bed & Breakfast business. My only regret is that that we didn't stay two nights. Linda Alvar, Edmonds, WA

This was our 2nd time at Red Caboose Getaway and it is as amazing and wonderful as before. Olaf & Charlotte are a wonderful couple and she is a super great cook. The breakfasts in the 1930s era dining car are always a very special affair, with white linens, crystal and china - and served with a flair by Olaf. Ducks in the pond, birds at the feeders, comfortably appointed cabooses all add to the great experience here. The Orient Express caboose has a wonderful jetted tub - perfect after a hike on Hurricane Ridge or the Dungeness Spit. We highly recommend this B&B - it is a unique and special experience.
3.4 on July 01, 2013
The room was smaller than I thought it would be. The breakfasts were amazing and a real treat. Things I would never think to cook for myself.
4.6 on July 01, 2013
Wonderful hosts, a very special place!
4.8 on June 30, 2013
Very quaint and you feel like a part of history. You are in a caboose, not a five star hotel. You need to experience it to enjoy the quaintness. The breakfast is fantastic in a 1937 dining car with white linen covered tables.
4.6 on June 30, 2013
Gourmet breakfasts! Comfy bed. Well thought out themed décor. Great location. A shower would be nice for those of us who have trouble getting out of a tub. :)
5 on June 27, 2013
We enjoyed our stay at the Red Caboose way more than we thought we would! Somehow you have this sense that a train car really won't be that spacious or comfortable, but it was very comfortable and had plenty of room to move around. Granted, a caboose has it size limitations but it was fascinating to see how Olaf utilized every inch of the space in the refurbished car. We were in the Grape Escape and had some very nice Sofia champagne and several containers of fresh flowers which I REALLY enjoyed. My partner and his 22 yo daughter had relaxing rainy afternoon in the caboose just talking and planning... it was a highlight for them. Another surprise was the gourmet breakfast... using fresh local herbs and produce. It was fabulous! We had a great time and enjoyed every encounter with Olaf, Charlotte and Leif! It was a great time for us all!
5 on June 25, 2013
This was a wonderful experience. The railroad cars are a unique B&B and the dining car breakfast was outstanding. We would highly recommend Red Caboose!
5 on June 24, 2013
Something different, the accomodations may not e "5 star" but they are unique! The owners are wonderful, passionate about their place and helpful in every way
4.8 on June 24, 2013
Red Caboose Getaway was so much fun! Our caboose was absolutely charming down to the last detail. We stayed in the "Western-themed" caboose, and there were even a bunch of wonderful old westerns on DVD! Breakfast was delicious and the whole thing was very friendly and homey. Some activities we enjoyed while there were amazing Olympic Mountains views from Hurricane Ridge and a walk on Dungeness Spit. We were there for our 30th anniversary and couldn't have been happier!
5 on June 24, 2013
Red Caboose Bed and Breakfast is an experience everyone should have! The rooms are unique and an experience, the breakfasts are incredible and Charlotte and Olaf are wonderful! I highly recommend the experience and plan on staying again in the future.
4.6 on June 22, 2013
The breakfast was incredible!!!!!!!!!!!
4.8 on June 22, 2013
The only complaint I have....is that the mattress was just too soft for me, but my wife loved it!. Just killed my back.... Otherwise it was a thoroughly delightful place to stay, convenient location and the owners are a delight as well....
5 on June 21, 2013
We had a wonderful time at this getaway! Everything was wonderful! The hosts completely tool car of us. The food was wonderful and the circus caboose was awesome! We will be back!
4.8 on June 20, 2013
The caboose cars are so charming and cozy. We've stayed at the Red Caboose previously, and would go it again. Olaf, Charlotte, and Leif are wonderful hosts, with great stories and tips for things to do while visiting Sequim. The breakfasts are incredible! The best we've ever had at a B&B. The duck pond and baby ducks were so much fun to watch. Julian & Betty
4.2 on June 20, 2013
What a terrific getaway! Each caboose is theme decorated ( we stayed in the Lavender Caboose) with every amenity possible. Besides the shopping, dining, hiking, sightseeing of Sequim, we thoroughly enjoyed just hanging out in our caboose, watching the sunset from the captain chairs in the cupola. The breakfast in the dining car was FABULOUS!!!!! Don't miss it!!!
4.6 on June 20, 2013
Hospitality was outstanding, breakfasts so very tasty served hot with delicious coffee (endless refills and decaf on request) in such a unique setting. My husband noticed that the hot bread was 'anchored' on the board like it would be on a moving train. Our unit was well appointed and clean with a comfortable bed. Where else can you have such an experience filled with fun and get an education about the function of a caboose?! Olaf was cordial and obviously loves what he and his family do. I have already told friends about this great experience. Also lots to do in the surrounding area; we walked at Hurricane Ridge, Crescent Lake and near the Elwah River.
4.2 on June 20, 2013
Amazing 4 course gourmet breakfasts! Very professional. Bed was very comfortable, local recommendations were very good as well.
5 on June 18, 2013
Each caboose has.a theme, ours was wine. Every detail in the caboose was carefully chosen; from the stained glass used to the smallest details in the car. From the moment we turned the key to our caboose this B&B exceeded every expectation. Fresh flowers set next to the bed, a bottle of champagne in the mini frig and Chocolate mints on the nightstand. The most delightful addition to this room was the huge COPPER BATHTUB! The Lavender bubble bath, candles and fireplace allowed you to slip completely into wine country. In the morning a five course Gourmet breakfast will be waiting for you. Again every detail has been seen to. Each table is set. Linen table cloth, perfect table settings silver salt and pepper shakers, a daily menu, and small flower on each table. Coffee and a hot loaf of a Specialty bread is served to you after you are seated. Olaf is delighted to share the details of this1950s dinning car while he and his family prepares a breakfast you will not soon forget.
5 on June 17, 2013
Our children sent us to the Red Caboose for our 59th wedding anniversary. The entire experience was more than we expected. The breakfasts each morning were one of the highlights with food we never take time to fix at home. Watching the ducks and birds while dining in the dining car was most enjoyable. Olaf was our host for the time we were there and we had some very interesting conversations with him. He was always so cordial and went out of his way to make our stay pleasant and carefree. Although our caboose was yellow on the outside, the inside decor was most pleasing following the theme of the purple lavenders. We are grateful to our children for sending us on this adventure. Oh yes, visiting Sequim again was nice since we hadn't been there for years. We ate at the 101 diner and the Doclside Grill. Both had good food and were fun places to go. We now recommend this Bed and Breakfast to people we know and to all of you reading this. Helen & Joe
4.4 on June 16, 2013
We didn't want a typical B&B and this place was great. We wanted to explore the Olympic peninsula and had two days. The 'room' (converted caboose) was very clean and spacious. We liked the captain chairs in the 'upstairs' area - great for reading. It didn't have a shower which we much prefer, but for those who like jetted tubs, it had a large one. We rarely eat breakfast, but wanted to try this one since we read it was fabulous. It was super fancy, way more than we're used to. Each day is a different menu, and definitely creative - no eggs and toast that's for sure. The facility was very clean and obviously well loved and proudly renovated.
4.4 on June 11, 2013
We have stayed at numerous bed and breakfast places in our travels. The food at this place was amazing! The rooms were definitely unique. Only downside was not having a shower.
5 on June 10, 2013
We stayed at The Red Caboose on May 23&24. What a delightful place. We were in The Lavender Limited and they didn't miss one detail in the interior design! The breakfast, served in The Silver Eagle Dining Car is amazing and not to be missed!!!! Sequim is a great place to explore, as well as the surrounding towns. We don't think you'll be disappointed if you go. Enjoy!
5 on June 08, 2013
We loved the cozy caboose and the hosts were AWESOME!!
5 on June 07, 2013
I have been to many B & B's over the years. This was, by far, the best one. The food was INCREDIBLE, the service wonderful. From the moment we arrived to fresh flowers and champagne in the room, until we went to bed with chocolates by the bedside, it was all great. Olaf has a passion for what he does, and is more than happy to give you all the information about what he has done and plans on doing in the future. We will definitely be going back.
5 on June 05, 2013
The hosts were everything osts should be! the atmosphere was amazing, the food was More than amaaing. you could tell they have put alot of thought, time and energy into the B & B. Will definately be suggesting the Red Caboose Getaway to others.
5 on June 01, 2013
My wife and I stayed here for our honeymoon and it was the best trip we could ask for. We stayed in the Grape Escape, the caboose was decorating in a grape and wine theme included with an excellent copper tub that was perfect for soaking after a days hike. During our stay the breakfast served in their silver dining car was one of our favorite memories. No breakfast was the same and all of them were beyond delicious and filling! We enjoyed Olaf's conversations during breakfast and suggestions of what to do within the area. Olaf, Charlotte and Leif were all so kind we can't wait to see them again! Definitely plan to visit this heavenly get away again soon!
5 on May 29, 2013
We only live an hour and ahalf from Sequim so we are familar to the area. We decided on the Oriental Express Caboose and it was beyond our expectations. Beautifully decorated it sucked us right into our O. Express experience...right down to watching the Murder on the Oriental Express movie...Breakfast each morning was our favorite part of the day in the fabulous dining car...Olaf and Miss Charlotte and their son Lief where great hosts!!!! This place is definetly a must see... I can't decide which caboose to stay in next... circus? no maybe the wine caboose.. no no maybe the ocean one when it is finished. Maybe all of them!
5 on May 20, 2013
A wonderful experience! Food was amazing! We will definitely be returning!
5 on May 19, 2013
From arrival to departure, our stay exceeded all expectations. The cabooses are works if art, the multi-course breakfasts were phenominal, and the views of the Olympics were breathtaking. We have a new favorite getaway.

lovley caboose's, very nice family. quiet and relaxing. fantastic breakfast. we will be back.
5 on May 04, 2013
We had a great time. Fun to stay in the caboose, very private. Food was amazing. Bed comfortable with lots of covers, so being cold was not a problem. A good experience to recommend. We are telling others what a great adventure this can be.
4.2 on May 03, 2013
It was a lot of fun staying in the caboose. The breakfast was outstanding and we would definitaly go back.
4.6 on May 01, 2013
We stayed at the Red Caboose Getaway in the Circus caboose. From the moment the door opened, there was something to look at. From the personalized magnet "welcome" to the lions in the "cages", nothing was missed. Bed was comfortable, caboose stayed warm with the propane fireplace/stove. You can absolutely not miss the breakfast!! The atmosphere of the dining car was warm and inviting. And the food... so very, very good! Olaf was an attentive waiter, and it was interesting to hear him speak about his plans for other cabooses. We felt pampered and welcomed from the moment we checked in until the moment we sadly closed the caboose door behind us... Do not miss an opportunity to visit here, it will be worth it!

This was our 4th time there & we'll go back. Each time was a different caboose and all were great. The food and service are marvelous as is the beautiful dining car. Sharon R

It was a treat to have some original fixtures of the caboose. We enjoyed reading on the two steel chairs perched on the roof line. It was a pleasure to have breakfast in the dining car with the tables set up elegantly.
4.6 on March 13, 2013
Great weekend at red Caboose Getaway. We stayed in the Lavender Limited on Track 5 and our only complaint was the dehumidifier noise. My husband is retired BNSF and he absoltuely loved all the train memorabelia. The breakfasts were fantastic. We will definately go back and plan to spend a little more time to check out ther area.
5 on March 06, 2013
What a delightful weekend. The Red Caboose Getaway was nice and peaceful since our weekend is in the middle of the week. We stayed in the Orient Express..listened to provided music CD's in the car and ate dinner sitting up in the observation seats. Breakfast both days was nothing short of AMAZING!! Bed was nice and cozy. I would recommend this little slice of paradise to anyone wanting to get some well deserved R & R...Thank you to Olaf, Charlotte and Leif!!!

A very relaxing time, with such a comfortable bed, a relaxing jacuzzi tub, great views and an awesome breakfast made for a very unforgettable night out. Thank you, Olaf and Charlotte.

This was our 3rd stay at the Red Caboose. We enjoy the theme idea so much and everything is done so well, down to the last detail. The highlight is always Charlotte's breakfast the next morning! She and Olaf are just the nicest people and they really know how to make your stay there an exceptional experience.

The whole place is very quaint and unique. The breakfast was amazing and the dining car was beautiful. We had a wonderful stay and would definitely reccomend it to anyone looking for a memorable stay in sequim.

Very unique B&B experience! Comfortable bed, plenty of warmth from the heater, interesting decor, and outstanding breakfasts. Loved the duck pond and its visitors. Olaf can talk about trains and where all the cabooses came from to your heart's content. If you want a caboose with a shower, be sure to take care which one you reserve, as most only have tubs. We will definitely be back!
5 on December 22, 2012
Great host and hostess. Train cars are so uniquely different and chosen carefully to represent different types of cars. We stayed in The Orient Express, watched the movie, had a great visit in sunny Sequim. The breakfasts are to die for. I wasn't sure what a multi course breakfast looked like. Sweet or savory bread, fruit course, main course like brunch casserole, French toast, or frittata (but with special ingredients), and small special finishing sweet. Juice, coffee, and relaxation. Fun!
4.2 on December 19, 2012
The rooms are as original as they can be! Olaf has really done a great job at keeping them original and comfortable. They are all different, with different themes. Very clean, comfy, with jacuzzy or bathtub. Breakfast is a 4 course delicious gourmet endeavor, do not miss it!!
4.6 on December 19, 2012
We stayed in the western themed caboose. I really liked it. It was kind of like a fantasy. The location was close to everything. There was a nice pond with ducks. The neighborhood was a little strange but overall I had a great time.
4.6 on December 19, 2012
This went far above and beyond my expectations in every way. We can't wait to go back in the summer. We plan to make this an annual visit and train hop between all the cabooses :o) Charlotte accommodated my very limited diet and both she and Olaf were super friendly! Highly recommend this getaway!

We were impressed how warm and comfortable you can be in a caboose! Unique and cozy, plus the food was exceptional quality. On top of this, it is close-in to Sequim, with cute shops and close access to walking and bike trails. We really had a nice getaway! Robert Regan-Hughes

My husband and I were looking for a unique getaway and found the Red Caboose on the internet. The Lavendar Caboose was beautiful, quiet and romantic. The breakfasts were wonderful. The owners really put alot of care and thought into the comforts of their guests. We haven't stopped talking about our wonderful weekend and recommend it to all!
5 on December 04, 2012
The caboose was retrofiied very nicely.Breakfasts were terrific.All things considered a great place to stay.
5 on December 03, 2012
We had such a great time in Sequim. The Red Caboose was the perfect getaway for Sandy and I. Charlotte made an unforgetable breakfast each morning, a real gourmet chef, I consider myself a, "good", cook but nothing like our experience with Charlotte's breakfast. Oalf is the most passionate man I have met with his focus and direction on where the business is going. His focus to attention on each of his, Caboose's is unbelievable. Every detail to the last little piece perfect to the best. Oalf is the best person for the job and Charlotte is the best breakfast chef in the West.....5 1/2 stars without a doubt......The absolute best getaway... Tim and Sandy

We have traveled all over the world and have never seen a place like this - and that's a compliment. The "rooms" are indeed individual cabooses, and the four course breakfast is almost too much - and served in an authentic railroad dining car, to boot.
5 on November 18, 2012
Olaf and Charlotte have created the most unique and enjoyable escape in the Northwest. The charm flows from the host and hostess to the amazing bedrooms and a breakfast that defies description--it has to be experienced! The room transports you away from the stresses of everyday life to a better place. The attention to detail is extraordinary and makes the whole experience a ton of fun. We did not want to leave.
5 on November 15, 2012
This is a very impressive property. Each caboose is individually themed and beautifully decorated. The breakfast is the best - 4 courses and impeccably presented and served. Olaf and Charlotte are very professional. We will definitely stay again!
5 on November 13, 2012
the attention to details is amazing, very 'at home' feeling.
4.4 on November 12, 2012
we had a great time here, the food was amazing and the Owners are both so lovely, welcoming and helpful
4.8 on November 11, 2012
Need a special place to enjoy.? This is it!!!! This couple shows they love of their business. Its in their heart and shines though their eyes. The breakfast is the best ever. I think of this as the best place in the NW. Sequim has lots to offer.
5 on November 09, 2012
My Husband and I were able to get away for the weekend and had an amazing time at The Red Caboose Getaway. The place is wonderfully done and the owners, Olaf and Charlotte have done an incredible job, the attention to detail is fantastic, Breakfast is fabulous. A gourmet and filling breakfast to start your day. We look forward to going back!
4.8 on October 29, 2012
A wonderful experience and the best 4 course breakfast we have ever had. i would recommend this place to anyone who is heading to Sequim, WA.
5 on October 23, 2012
This Red Caboose Getaway is a wonderful experience that takes you to another time when train travel was splendid. The trains are authentically decorated, good beds, lovely setting with a duck pond, and the dining car with 1930's music and the best "first class" breakfast. Highly recommend this getaway.
4.4 on October 23, 2012
The thing that bothered me the most was no shower curtain for the tub! Everything else was very interesting and fun. Olaf and Charlotte are just great.
5 on October 23, 2012
I surprised my husband with a HOMECOMING get away to the Red Caboose Getaway. He had just returned from a deployment in Afghanistan and this was the BEST weekend - ever! The caboose, service, value, cleanliness & dining were beyond great. Olaf & Charlotte were very knowledgeable of the area and were able to point us in the right direction for restaurants near the B&B. I must say that the First Class Breakfast served in the Dining Car deserves more than 5 stars. We stayed in the Grape Escape caboose and it was delightful! Thank you again, Olaf & Charlotte for an amazing homecoming getaway for me and my Sailor! We will be returning :D
4.8 on October 22, 2012
Stayed in the Lavender Caboose and it was amazing, gas fireplace, two person jet tub, (no shower) queen size bed and two conductor chairs. The place was warm enough in the Fall weather. Breakfast in the Silver Eagle Train Car was more than amazing. Some fine hotels can't do what Charlotte does, Cinnamon Swirl Mini Loaf, Bake Fuji Apple with Sausage Cornbread Stiffing then a Dutch Baby with RCG handpicked blackberries and Lavender Whipped Cream and then Chocolate Dipped Mandarins all this in one sitting.
4.8 on October 21, 2012
Just a lot of fun and definitely a place we will return to! We have already recommended to others due to the unique environment, the lovely owners and the truly wonderful service and food!
5 on October 17, 2012
Wonderful experience. Very charming and the service & food were excellent.
4.8 on October 17, 2012
Nostalgia with some modern conveniences and clever details. The Circus Caboose is stocked with circus-themed DVDs. The mural on the wall is lit with multi-coloured lights which can be changed to fade or flash, adding to the whimsical feel of the caboose. A nice touch was the personal welcome, spelled out in magnetic letters on the mirror wall. We missed having a shower but the jetted tub was very nice and the bed very comfy. The location is quiet and peaceful, adding to a restful evening. Breakfast was delicious and the dining car is set up as it might have been in its heyday. A great way to start the day. Olaf obviously enjoys sharing his knowledge of the rail cars and he and Charlotte are thoughtful hosts.
4.4 on October 17, 2012
Clever idea - restoring old cabooses. We loved it. Will go again to experience a different themed car.
5 on October 17, 2012
My husband and try and do local get aways around washington every couple of months to spend time with each other and not work weekends (own a small business). I thought that the Red Caboose looked like alot of fun and Unique. Well I was right... What a fun experience. I wanted the Grape excape caboose so we waited 4 months so we could stay in that caboose. It was amazing... The decoration and large copper soaking tub was great. It was such a fun experience to have your own train to stay in and the Breakfast in the mornings in the dining was was AMAZING..... His newest train s will be a Vegas and Sea theme and we will be back to stay in those two for sure.
4.8 on October 15, 2012
Our first b&b experience will be hard to top. Expertly renovated caboose train cars, (we were in'Casey Jones'), including a real dining car, made this weekend to remember. Excellent gourmet breakfast prepared and served by Olaf and Charlotte. They obviously enjoy what they do. We recommend without hesitation. One suggestion: The room could use a microwave, and the TV is teeny tiny
4.8 on October 15, 2012
A very unique place to stay. I alwways looking for something special and the Red Caboose is the most spechial place that I ever found! It is very funny. Each caboose is restored with a lot of love for each detail - and the theming of each caboose is amazing. Breakfast was more than fabulous. Olaf and Charlotte were extremely welcoming. I highly recommend the Red Caboose and I would definitely stay there again when I am in the area. We have stay one night in the Western Caboose. Due to the fact that we do not have enjoy a dinner at Red Caboose I could not really rate it. Unfortunatelly technicaly I could not check out without a rating for Dining. But I expect that the dinner will be that great like the breakfast.
4.2 on October 14, 2012
We stayed in a caboose with the name "Oriental Express". The interior was decorated with hues of red and gold. And there were posters of "Murder on the Orient Express" along with other railroad memorabilia. The bed was very comfortable. The jacuzzi tub was big. I would have preferred a shower option but that was not available. Also no ironing board or iron was provided, and there was no curtain or door separating the bedroom and the jacuzzi for privacy. (Yes, there was a door to the toilet.) The food in the dining car was quite good, although one morning it was particularly loaded with carbs. Our second day's breakfast was over the top good. The grounds have a long way to go. There were several ducks in residence and their poop was everywhere - including on the walkway and the stairs to the dining car and office. We had dinner coupons at two restaurants. The Alder Wood Bistro was not very good but the Dockside was excellent.

Each Fall a group of bicyclers head over on the Coho Ferry from Victoria , B.C. to Port Angeles and proceed to ride along the Discovery Trai to Sequim. For many years now Stationmaster Olaf and his fine wife Charlotte have been looking after us with 5 star service and accommodations at the Red Caboose Getaway. Their personalized service is outstanding.
4.0 on October 06, 2012
We could not have had a better time. The breakfasts are amazing! The location is easy to get to and very centrally located. It is better than most B&B's because each caboose is separate and there is not another room on the other side of the wall. Having the Discovery Trail go right by it is also a plus. Would recommend it highly.
3.2 on October 03, 2012
Olaf and Charlotte were delightful. Had a wonderful weekend. Enjoyed the stay.
3.8 on October 03, 2012
It was a wonderful experience. The hosts were very informative. The food was outstanding and every breakfast was very well presented. We enjoyed our stay and will recommend to others.
4.4 on September 25, 2012
Was browsing through a magazine and came across an article on this place. He secretly found the web site and booked it for my 50th b-day. It was such an awesome getaway for us. We stayed in the #9 caboose the Grape Escape. It was amazing. Olaf and Charlotte were wonderful hosts and the breakfast was excellent both mornings. Everything was fresh made and very tasty and presentation was beautiful. We will be back next year.
4.6 on September 22, 2012
What a great place to stay. The rooms are as elegant as a caboose could be. The breakfasts are amazing!! Charlotte & Olaf are wonderful hosts.
4.8 on September 22, 2012
Excellent breakfast, great hosts, cute cabooses to stay in. I highly recommend it!
5 on September 21, 2012
Room was fun and had a wine theme, beautifully decorated. Breakfast was amazing and the station master Olaf was a fountain of knowledge. We will stay here again.
5 on September 21, 2012
My husband and I spent 2 nights in the Western themed caboose and it was so much fun. We had a fireplace to keep us warm at night, the ambiance was wonderful, no detail left undone. It felt cozy and personal. The food was unbelieveable. They used fresh local produce and the chocolate dipped mandarin oranges are to die for. The area of Sequim has so much to do and is so interesting that it was a wonderful getaway.
4.8 on September 13, 2012
This place is a gem! Wonderfull hosts, great breakfast and fascinating stories how he obtained the Cabooses and how he relocated them to where they are today. I never stay at B&B's but this an exception. I plan to visit again. The breakfast was out of this world. Their passion for what they do reflects the details and work they have put into their cabooses!
4.4 on September 13, 2012
Our caboose, #9 The Grape Escape, was classy and comfortable. The owners Olaf and Margaret were very friendly. The breakfasts were superb, truly gourmet.
4.2 on September 12, 2012
We visited the Red Caboose Bed and Breakfast this past August 2012. We reserved the Lavender Caboose. It was lovely and many of the items went well with the lavender theme. We weren't sure what to expect out of a caboose lodging but were pleasantly surprised. It was a bit warm but they had put in a portable airconditioner in the room to try to keep it cool. It had a lovely clawfoot tub that you could soak in. However, if you are more of a shower person, you might want to pass on this room. The breakfast for both days was just outstanding. She did a terrific job with the food and made substitutions for someone in our party who had allergies. He was a wonderful host and waiter. The caboose was quiet and there was plenty of privacy. There is a cute duck pond that is in the middle but there's a lot of bird droppings that you have to cross in order to get to the main dining caboose. Just be prepared. Other than that, it was a wonderful experience that you have to at least try once in your life.
5 on September 09, 2012
This is our 5th stay and it gets nothing but better. The food is great. We always have a great time.
5 on September 06, 2012
This was our second stay at the red caboose getaway and we will always stay there when we are in Seqium. We feel like Olaf and his wife are more like friends then the great hosts that they are. The cabooses are decorated with creativity and detail and the breakfasts are as elegant as any fine dining establishment. You will never be disappointed if you stay here.
4.4 on August 28, 2012
Rooms (caboose) is very clean and quiet. The breakfast was gourmet. Sequim is a great getaway location.
5 on August 27, 2012
This is a unique stay and perhaps not for everyone, but we really enjoyed it. We stayed in a Railroad caboose for two nights and had a delicious four course gourmet breakfast ina railroad dining car. This was fun! The hosts, Charlotte and Olaf are very friendly and accommodating. If you are a railroad enthusiast, this is the place for you. Pick Olaf's brain, he really knows the history. If you are not a railroad enthusiast, like we are not, don't hesitate to stay here. Location perfect and the accommodations are roomier than you might think. Decor is as you would expect...Everything historic railroad. Nice eye for details.
5 on August 27, 2012
Charlotte and Olaf are wonderful hosts! The breakfast every morning was outstanding!
4.8 on August 27, 2012
Staying in a real caboose was great fun. The breakfast was outstanding, as was the welcome we received from the owners. We will return. Lee & Audrey
4.2 on August 23, 2012
The most memorable B & B we've ever stayed. Highly recommend the Caboose B & B experience.
3.4 on August 18, 2012
Fun and different place to stay. Comfortable bed, big tub, nicely decorated. Owners very friendly and make you feel welcome. Breakfast in the dining car was wonderful. Worth the trip just for breakfast. Things to know, the tub is open to the room, just behind a screen. The toilet and sink are inside a small compartment not much space...it is a caboose after all. I would have liked fresh towels each day otherwise it was a enjoyable.
4.8 on August 18, 2012
The breakfast was outstanding. The area around Sequim has many interesting things to do that include the sea and mountains.
4.4 on August 17, 2012
We had an absolute blast. Each train car uniquely decorated with individual themes. We'll have to try them all now. Breakfast was fantastic, and fueled us for the whole day.
5 on August 15, 2012
What an absolutely fantastic place. The attention to detail in each lovely caboose is extraordinary. Olaf and Charlotte put their heart and soul into it and it is evident. We're going back again and again. Charlotte's beyond gourment and imaginitive 4 course breakfast served on fine china in a lovely dining car is out of this world. Olaf can tell you everything and anything about his search for the perfect piece to add to the decor. They don't skimp on anything and the service is top notch. We loved it!
5 on August 13, 2012
Hospitality- extraordinary; food- scrumptious; Ambiance - delightful
5 on August 11, 2012
Absolutley the most fun we've had staying over night. Olaf and Charolette are great hosts and wonderful story tellers. The attention to detail is impecable and the breakfast in the dinning car was so ellegant, unique with fabulous food. We sat out by the dock pond and enjoyed the nature one of the evenings. We felt like they made the whole experience special just for us. I would recommend this to anyone. We will be back for another stay.
4.2 on August 10, 2012
We enjoyed our two night stay at the Red Caboose Getaway. Olaf personally showed us around our room and Charlotte adapted our breakfast to fit our food restrictions. The place was both clean and quiet. The rooms are a bit pricy for those on a budget and the 8:30 breakfast time was a bit early for us, but overall we'd recommend this place to others!
4.0 on August 08, 2012
We had a great time, cabooses were interesting and fun and our bed was very comfortable!
5 on August 07, 2012
Theme based train Cabooses decorated to the smallest details, such as the Orient Express has murder mystery videos, including Murder on the Orient Express.Very comfortable. Fantastic breakfasts!!!! Hosts are very pleasant and helpful about local area sights.
4.6 on August 04, 2012
Enjoyed our two night stay in the 'old west' themed caboose! Hospitality and wonderful meals where beyond expectations! Thank you to Olaf and Charlotte for an enjoyable stay. We will return and spread the word of your unique establishment. Oh, and Charlotte your breakfasts were so delicious and innovative ! THanks again! Art & Vicki
5 on August 01, 2012
We stayed in the grapes of wrath caboose it was beautiful and breakfast was amazing. Definitely will be going back again. Olaf was a wonderful host and Charlotte makes a great homemade breakfast.
5 on August 01, 2012
We love to stay in B & Bs on our trips to see our children! They gave us this gift for Moms and Dads day; but we stayed on my Birthday ( I'm the train nut ). I would love to return when you have your new Stainless Steel KS caboose done. Loved the Breakfast and the history lesson. Thank You very much!!!
4.0 on August 01, 2012
My husband and I love B&B's, and we're adding this one to our list of places to return. It's fun to stay in your own train caboose for a unique and novel experience. We stayed in the red caboose - the Orient Express - and definitely enjoyed ourselves. The only warning I'd give for this particular caboose is that it doesn't have a shower, just a large tub. For us, it was perfect because it forced us to take a relaxing bath for the first time in years! Yes, it's big enough for two and has jets if you like :) Perhaps we will give one of the other cabooses a try next time, just out of curiosity. As for the breakfast, get ready for an amazing 4 course spread! Everything was beyond delicious, and they were super courteous in asking us if we had any dietary considerations both when we booked and when we checked in. It's served in the largest, main caboose which is set up beautifully on the inside. The only thing I would warn potential visitors about is, 1) there's a lot of food, so come hungry! and 2) most of the dishes were heavy carb / bread based - yummy, for sure - but for those who crave protein / meat in the morning (or veggies) you might have to specify that preference.
4.2 on July 28, 2012
A very unique B&B that we encourage people to experience. The cabooses were very comfortable and the food was outstanding. The dining car was such a particular treat that we brought our friends in to experience it. However, if you have trouble with stairs and steps, I wouldn't stay here.
We offer authentic stays in a caboose complete with the original steps as well as the upper cupola chairs. Those mobility challenged we offer the "Casey Jones" with easier access up the Station House ramp (no steps) and coupled to our 1937 Zephyr dining car.
- Stationmaster Olaf (innkeeper)

One very unique getaway!! Complete with it's very own pond, family of Ducks, and plenty of birds to watch!! Olaf & Charlotte were great! Very Welcoming, courteous, and friendly. There dog Pickle was adorable! Our stay was very enjoyable and memorable. The Orient Express Caboose was charming & fun to stay in! If you visit the Washington Peninsula this is a must do!! Thank you soo much for the great experience & the Lavender!! Michael & Christina.
5 on July 25, 2012
We love the Red Caboose Getaway. It's really nice, the themes are well done and its a very relaxing place to be. The breakfasts are worthy of a 5 star restaurant. It's located really close to the trail and the park and is a great place to get out and be active, yet its great to come back and relax in a long bath.
3.8 on July 23, 2012
We had fun staying in the Orient Express car and they serve a wonderful breakfast.
5 on July 23, 2012
An unbelievably unique, special B&B. Olaf's passion is clearly evident in every caboose. Great attention to detail. He truly is a master at his craft. And Charlotte prepared awesome gourmet breakfasts. This is truly a gem and a must go to B&B. Will definitely return should our travels take us back to the Pacific Northwest.
5 on July 18, 2012
The owners are amazing warm folks who are experts in their area and are happy to talk trains with you over breakfast, but also understanding of people's desire for privacy on vacation. The cabooses are so cozy and charming as well. I can't wait to recommend this place to family and friends.
5 on July 18, 2012
Olaf and Charlotte are terrific hosts who make you feel like celebrities. The attention to all the railroad details with photos, antiques, and media to see and read in the room was unexpected. The well prepared breakfast was served with Olaf's unique flair with ancedotes of the construction of their dream B&B. I will recommend this great experience to my friends and my collector car buddies looking for another interesting destination.
5 on July 15, 2012
Room, details, comforts - amazing. Services, hospitalality, attention to needs - amazing. Breakfast - BEYOND amazing. Cons...not a single one! We will be going back again...and again...and again.
4.8 on July 10, 2012
This is a great place to stay. Loved the caboose that we stayed in and the breakfast was fantastic. We will stay here again.
4.6 on July 09, 2012
Fantastic breakfast...highly invested owners....totally unique experience.
5 on July 06, 2012
Olaf and Charlotte were amazing hosts in this unique little B & B. The food was gourmet and delicious. And the rooms cozy, sweet, and very tidy, offering more character and TLC than any B & B we have visited. The Red Caboose is a wee bit more rustic and far more quaint, than fancy places, considering the rooms are cabooses. We were also impressed by the attention and care of the owners in this lovely setting. Top notch!
4.8 on July 05, 2012
when you tell them about your weekend getaway. Ours were. Staying in a caboose, relaxing in the jacuzzi tub and a breakfast so good you have a hard time explaining really how good it is. And Olaf and Charlotte are wonderful hosts that truly enjoy what they do. We will be back again and again to stay in each of the cabooses and try the wonderful eats Charlotte comes up with.
5 on July 05, 2012
One of the best kept secrets of Washington. The theme is unique but don't let the idea of staying in an old caboose throw you. The owners (Olaf & Charlotte) have restored and retrofitted these cars to the utmost detail that rivals upper level rooms in any hotel. Many cars have Jacuzzi tubs and gas fireplace/ stoves and the attention to the car's themes have been well planned from the decor to the collection of DVD movies that match the theme. Each car has a different experience. Top that all off with one of the most amazing breakfasts I've ever had... Anywhere. Plus the fact that it's served in a fully restored 40's dinning car just adds to the fun. You'll feel like your eating on a set of a classic movie. Detail here hasn't been left out either. Even Olaf and Charlotte are dressed for the part in period Train Staff attire. Even if I wasn't able to stay here (the place stays constantly booked) I'd opt to have breakfast here. Olaf and Charlotte are extremely friendly and don't pass up the chance to hear any of Olafs stories on the cars and what it took to get them here. The effort and expense it took to the cars here and convert them, it's amazing that they make any money based on what they charge. Making this a really good value. Out last stay was the second time we've been to this B&B and it was just as fun as the first time. We talked our friends into renting a car as well this time around and they instantly fell in love with the place as we did. This place is truly a memorable experience and if your lucky enough to book a car for the weekend you will definitely not be disappointed.
5 on June 28, 2012
Breakfast was was the best from any bed and Breakfast I have had. We have been to bed and breakfast place from all over Europe and the US and this was not among the best it was the BEST!
5 on June 27, 2012
Staying in a caboose is already really neat. You can get your own caboose, so you have total privacy. Each caboose has a different theme. You have a reason to visit again. My wife and I have already been there 3 times. Breakfast? The best breakfast!! Breakfast is served in dinning car (cool, isn't it?), and multi-course breakfast fills you up entire day!! Olaf and Charlotte, the owners, are sooooo nice. You can hear all about the caboose and breakfast.
4.4 on June 26, 2012
We stayed in the Casey Jones caboose which still has the conductor's desk & chair, the two observation seats, and the 'head'! The car has been elegantly modified and has all the conveniences of an upscale hotel room. Great breakfast, too!!
4.6 on June 20, 2012
We stayed in the Casey Jones caboose. My husband loved sitting in the conductor's chair and checking out all the train related items. The breakfasts were outstanding.
4.4 on June 20, 2012
We had a great stay in the Lavender Limited Caboose. Breakfast and service were amazing!
5 on June 19, 2012
Olaf and Charlotte were tremendous hosts. The whole experience was excellent. Olaf was like the Chamber of Commerce describing all the wonderful things to do and see and the great food that is produced in the Sequim Valley and the local restaurants that prepare it to perfection. Charlotte is a gourmet chef. Her breakfasts were the Best! The meal was different each day, prepared with locally produced food and cooked to perfection.
4.6 on June 19, 2012
Over the past weekend (6/15-6/17) we slept in a refurbished caboose and ate breakfast (4 courses) at a table covered with white linen, crystal & china. All of this took place at a wonderful B&B called the Red Caboose Getaway, located in Sequim, WA. Our hosts, Olaf & Charlotte, were wonderful, entertaining, and full of knowledge about the area and their prized cabooses. If you are looking for somewhere unusual and fun to stay, this is a great choice. All of the cabooses are totally refurbished and luxurious and each has some of its original parts. Ours had a glorious spa tub with room enough for two! A towel warmer and cozy robes finished off the relaxing soak. We plan on going back many times to try more of Charlotte's wonderful breakfasts and each of the other cabooses!
4.2 on June 19, 2012
We went to the Red Caboose Getaway using a Living Social deal, which included a 2 night stay, a $20 coupon for dinner at two local restaurants, and free wine tasting at the local winery. We stayed in the Western Caboose, and loved it. Olaf and Charlotte are wonderful hosts, and have thought of every detail. Also, the breakfast was delicious and enough to keep you satisfied till dinner!
5 on June 17, 2012
We didn't know exactly what to expect when we booked our stay here. It was fantastic. The room was very cute and clean. We stayed in the lavender room. It was more spacious than I had expected. It had a two person jacuzzi tub the we enjoyed. The breakfast was to die for! Charlotte is definitely a gourmet chef. There was sooo much food. You definitely do not start your day hungry. After breakfast Olaf let us know what was going on around the area. We'll definitely be back here to stay again!
3.8 on June 05, 2012
We stayed in the Western theme caboose. We loved the decor as well as the western movies! Olaf gave a great informative presentation of the caboose! He and his wife Charlotte were gracious hosts dishing up a gourmet first class breakfast! I would definitely recommend the Red Caboose Bed and Breakfast!
5 on June 02, 2012
I cannot say enough about our experience at the Red Caboose. It was a completely unique experience and the breakfast was to-die-for!! We will be back!!
5 on June 01, 2012
Thank you Olaf and Charlotte, we were only sorry we couldn't have breakfast on our second day because of having to leave to early. But the breakfast to go was perfect. We went on a cruise from there and we never got a good meal after that. You are the best, hope to come back again. God Bless Lynne and Ron

You almost need two reviews for this property: One for the sleeping accomodations and one for the most spectacular breakfasts you'll get in a B&B. Each of the eight cabooses (there's more in the works) is themed to a different style (Western, Circus, Orient Express, etc.). Separate from each other they surround a very serene duck pond which, during our end-of-May visit, was loaded with little ducklings. Other songbirds add to the appeal of the surroundings as well as the chirping of the frogs at night. The circus caboose (our choice) came complete with a jacuzzi and plenty of space to move around. Room appointments include TV/DVD and an amazing attention to detail and accuracy. Only a couple units have showers so if that's important make sure to request one. Breakfast: 5-star doesn't even come close! All fresh and responsibile for us spending an extra night. Your host and hostess put out the mostest. We had our choice of coffee, tea, or a variety of flavors of hot chocolate (went with caramel but heard the peanut butter was great). Juice was a choice of orange/mango or pomegranite/berry. "Appetizers" included orange pull-aparts and a spectacular grapefruit (which didn't taste like any grapefruit I've ever had). This weekend's main course was a sausage-stuffed Fuji apple on Sunday and then a "hobo bag" on Monday. As if that wasn't enough desserts were chocolate-dipped mint leaves and mini-baked Alaskas. Where else does this happen? No pets (the proprietors'dog Pickles is a pleasant substitute) or children under 12 insure that the grounds (located a couple hundred yards from the spur road into town and next to a residential area) can be enjoyed by the adult guests. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

We spent two nights and saw the local area. We just can't say enough about how we were treated from the minute we arrived to the time we left. Red Caboose Getaway B&B is tops in all catagories. If there was a way to give ten stars for our experience, they earned it. Thank you for an ideal stay. Joan and Jim Wells

The Red Caboose was awesome. The dining experience was outstanding. We loved the different caboose themes and can't wait to try another one next time we're in town.

Bought a living social deal to stay at the Red Caboose and will definitely go back. It was a great experience and Charlotte & Olaf were wonderful. The cabooses were fun and Olaf suggested a lot of fun things to do around Sequim. The breakfast's were 5 star as well as the service. You won't be disappointed. Can't wait to go back!!! Thank you!

Our stay at the Red Caboose was so wonderful! Our hosts were very welcoming, told us all about the area and gave us great recommendations on local restaurants. The accommodations were not only fun and interesting they were also very comfortable. The breakfast was a great experience as well with delicious food and great service. We highly recommend the Red Caboose and look forward to visiting again one day!

We loved our stay at the Red Caboose. We stayed in the Lavender Limited car - highly recommended.Olaf and his wife were perfect hosts and the highlight was the 4 course breakfast. It may sound expensive to stay there, but if you factor in free parking, and at $30 breakfast x 2 people, it is a bargain. Would definately stay there again. Rick and Jane Hinman - Erie, PA

Trains are fun, even ones that don't move and this little B&B is uniquely fun. Our room was a bit tight, but had everything we needed to be comfortable. The soaking tub was lovely, but I really would have preferred a shower. Breakfast was delicious, but I am still working it off; and I missed having some fresh fruit. Still, if you are in the area and want a fun experience, check onto one of the 9 different train cabooses
5 on May 13, 2012
It was the greatest two days we have had in a long time. The caboose was a real treat and the food not what you would expect for a B&B. We will be returning again.
4.6 on May 13, 2012
This was a great stay for my wife and I. The gourmet breakfast prepared by Olaf and Charlotte was great. This Bed and Breakfast was featured in GROUPON. We will definitely be going back. Staying in the Grape Escape Caboose was great.
4.8 on May 11, 2012
we weren't really sure what to expect and we were pleasantly surprised. we stayed in a real caboose and loved it. It did not feel cramped at all and even had a 2 person bathtub and towel warmer. Breakfast was absolutely delicious. The grounds were really cute with a pond in the middle and lots of birds. The area has lots of things to see and do. We had a great weekend.
4.8 on May 04, 2012
We stayed in the Orient Express caboose. It was comfortable and clean with a TV, fridge, and DVD player. Wifi is a bit spotty because of the thick metal walls. This is a unique idea and very well executed. The breakfasts were among the best we've had anywhere. I understand the reason for a firm check-in time, but check-in takes about 15 minutes per caboose and, with only one person doing the check-in, those at the end of the line wait a long time to get to their room. More flexibility about check-in time would no doubt be appreciated.
5 on April 30, 2012
This is a little expenive, but well worth it for a unique experience. The service was exceptional and the breakfast was AMAZING! The owners are a great couple who are passionate about what they do. The area is beautiful, and the combination makes for an unforgettable experience.
5 on April 25, 2012
Our stay was a fantasy come true for any railway buff. What a treat to wake up on your birthday in a caboose and dine in a 1937 dining car! We stayed in the Lavender Express caboose and loved it. The décor was cute and comfortable...the jetted tub superbly relaxing. The frosting on the cake was a gourmet three course breakfast with scrumptious locally roasted coffee and even a tiny dessert! We have already chosen a theme car for our next stay. Thank you Charlotte and Olaf.
5 on April 21, 2012
The breakfast for both of our days was out of this world. We have stayed in the western and lavender caboose. Loved both of them.
5 on April 18, 2012
Amazing! Highly recommended! The caboose was very spacious and decorated really nice. Breakfast was wonderful! Can't say enough good things about our stay!
4.8 on April 17, 2012
A very fun place to stay with an amazing breakfast to boot!
5 on April 16, 2012
We had a great time staying in the Great Escape Caboose it had everything in it and was so darling, very clean . Olaf and Charlotte were super along with the great breakfast that was prepared for us. We have already highly recomend it to our friends. Thankyou Olaf & Charlotte
5 on April 14, 2012
What a great 45th. anniversary get away. Excellent breakfast in a 90 foot dinning car. I wish I could have rated it with six stars! Quiet, comfortable beds, with warm quilts resting inside of a restored, themed caboose. Make a plan. Do not miss this most pleasurable adventure.
5 on April 13, 2012
I had won a gift certificate through my work, but will definately be back to see Charlotte & Olaf! The experience was amazing. They made you feel like family, and the breakfast was out of this world!
4.8 on April 11, 2012
We traveled to the RCG for our one year anniversary. The rooms were just as we expected. The photos are very accurate o what you find at check in. Lots of movies on the room to watch. Comfy robes and lovely soaking tub. Only reason I gave 4 stars instead of 5 is because we never had good Internet service the whole time we were there and they were supposed I have wifi. It just wasn't a strong enough signal. Overall we had a great time. The breakfast was out of this world. So yummy and great first class service. We will definately be going back.
4.8 on March 14, 2012
The rooms are fun and cozy, the jacuzzi tub is wonderful. The breakfast each morning was a delight as were Olaf and Charlotte. I can't really speak to the value since we used a living social coupon. We will definitetly visit again
4.6 on March 08, 2012
Our experience was so nice, I loved the original idea of staying in an actual old caboose. They are super cozy and the whirlpoor tub was so nice. The breakfast was amazing!! they serve breakfast items I never would have thought of, and everything is freshly made and delicious.
4.6 on February 27, 2012
We had a wonderful pre-Valentine's Day weekend away. We stayed in the Circus caboose. Every detail of the caboose is true to theme - we enjoyed it all! It was comfortable, cozy, and romantic - a great place to get away for a weekend.
4.8 on February 26, 2012
My wife and I stayed at the Grape Escape which was beautifully furnished. The entire experience was quiet and very pleasant. Charlotte and Olaf prepared a marvelous breakfast for us that blew my mind. Excellent cooking, great service, and beautiful places nearby to see makes this one of those times I will remember forever.
5 on February 24, 2012
There needs to be a separate category for Olaf and Charlotte's caboose getaway - it's so far above any other place we have ever stayed. Olaf does an unbelievable job refurbishing the cabooses and Charlotte's breakfasts are breathtaking. Can't wait to return - again and again.
5 on February 19, 2012
My husband and I could not believe how wonderful our stay was at the Red Caboose Getaway. The circus-themed caboose was bigger than we had expected and the two-person tub/spa was perfect. The best part was the breakfast each morning. A four-course meal served in the dining car on white linen tablecloths with china and crystal. We felt like we were in a 5-star restaurant. This is the perfect place to stay and we'll be sure to return!
4.6 on February 16, 2012
We spent 2 comfortable nights at the Red Caboose Getaway B&B, Olaf and Charlotte were exceptional hosts and we felt very much at home. The Breakfasts were fabulous, we would not hesitate to hightly recommend staying there, we will be going again!
5 on February 12, 2012
We stayed in the Western caboose and the moment we walked in it was a feeling like we had come home! All of the details from the floorboards to the ceiling were right on! Charlotte and Olaf were so welcoming and made it seem as though they were guests as well instead of the hosts. The food was incredible! Definitely an experience... we were open to trying new things and loved every bite! If you're a bacon and eggs every breakfast type, inform Charlotte and Olaf ahead of time and maybe make arrangements to have something to fit your needs. They go to great lengths to be unique and are extravagant with their recipes (which are delicious!!) so if you are not open to trying new things please let them know, they are willing to adjust your menu to your liking. Charlotte and Olaf are a great couple and work hard to make it a wonderful getaway for those who are looking for a relaxing weekend. We can't wait for our next visit... :-) Kristen and Justin (Everett, WA)

We stayed in The Grape Escape. It was fairly roomy and the decorations were great. Olaf & Charlotte had the heater on ready for us when we arrived, and they were understanding of our schedule (couldn't arrive until after midnight). The breakfast prepared by Charlotte was amazing! Everything was beautiful and delicious. She also accommodated for my boyfriend's vegetarian diet. All in all, we were very impressed and we highly recommend this place for anyone interested in staying somewhere unique.

The Red Caboose Getaway in Sequim is fantastic! You get to choose from several luxurious cabooses to stay in overnight. We opted for the Grape Escape. I absolutely loved the copper tub - that was definitely one of our highlights! In addition to the fabulous theming (with great attention to detail), the breakfasts in the mornings were delicious! Served in a dining car, Charlotte created four-course gourmet meals despite my wide array of food allergies. My favorites included the Orange Pull-Apart Mini Loaf and the Strawberry Dutch Baby. I also really liked that they offered a lot of suggestions for things to do in the area and places to try for lunch and dinner, but also gave you a lot of space to do your own thing. If you ever make it up to Sequim, you should definitely give the Red Caboose Getaway a try.
4.6 on November 22, 2011
We stayed in the car "the Lavender Limited" it was gorgeous. The food was out of this world. The hospitality was awesome. Never stayed at a bed and breakfast before so didnt really know what to expect. Will definately plan on coming back hopefully when its warmer out so can explore some.
5 on November 16, 2011
What an incredible experience! My husband & I recently spent 3 nights in the Grape Escape caboose & can't stop talking about it...Olaf & Charlotte are the nicest couple....Charlotte's breakfasts are an event in themselves. Attention to detail was everywhere & easy to imagine what it might have been like on the Orient Express with all of the personal attention. On morning of our anniversary the breakfast menu had a personal congratulations message for the two of us. This is definitely a "destination" B&B and we'll be back. So many places to visit around Sequim. Thank you Olaf & Charlotte for helping to make our anniversary a memorable one.
4.6 on September 22, 2011
We stayed in the "Grape Escape" caboose. It was adorable and very cozy. The food in the dining car was spectacular! Charlotte and Olaf were wonderful. I would highly recommend staying here.
4.8 on September 11, 2011
We are making a point of going every year and picking a caboose with a different theme. THis was our third stay and I recommend it to anybody. We have seven more cabosses to try.
4.6 on September 08, 2011
Can't beat the atmosphere and you certainly can't beat the food!! Olaf is very talented, knowledgeable and interesting. Charlotte is charming and an extrodinary chef. We highly recommend a stay at the Red Caboose!!
5 on September 01, 2011
We loved the Red Caboose Bed and Breakfast! The train cars were decorated to the tee, and Olaf and Charlette were the most friendliest people I have ever met. The breakfast was outstanding and beyond all my expectations. If you want someplace fun and out of the ordinary you have to stay at the Red Caboose Getaway. If you go there, you have to say HI to Pickles! Thanks for a great weekend getaway!
4.2 on August 30, 2011
What a unique experience. Loved the lavendar theme, beds were soft and cuddly. Breakfast was fantastic, loved the linen tablecloths and china.
5 on August 25, 2011
My best friend and I spent a whole week in the Pacific NW, staying at a different B&B each night. The Red Caboose Getaway was BY FAR the best and most enjoyable night we had! I so wish we had planned to stay in Sequim more than one night, but now we have an excuse to go back one day. Olaf was the ultimate host. The train cars each had a different theme and the craftmanship/remodel was excellent down to every detail. I really felt like we were back in time! We felt like royalty having breakfast in the dining car. Service was top-notch. I HIGHLY recommend Red Caboose Getaway to anyone staying in the area!
5 on August 24, 2011
Delightfull owners, a phenominal breakfast and cabooses are perfect. We have stayed 4 times now and will be back again.
5 on August 23, 2011
We loved this unique accommodation and the enthusiastic couple who are so excited about their B&B!! The caboose we stayed in was a Western theme with western details everywhere! The breakfasts were superb! When we wanted to use a table to play a game, our hosts set up a place for us in the dining car that we could use until 10:00 PM!!!
4.8 on August 15, 2011
A wonderful addition to the B&B community. Breakfast was 4-star in the Silver Diner Car! Each "room" was unique and quite comfortable. The little things such as a DVD movie following the "theme" of the caboose! We'll do it again if we're close by.
4.4 on August 15, 2011
We recently enjoyed a unique and very memorable stay at the Red Caboose Getaway and we would highly recommend the experience to train lovers and lovers as well. Thanks to Olaf and Charlotte for the interesting conversation and exceptional breakfast!

We rented 3 cabooses for my husband's 60th birthday; July 29, and 30, 2011. Our sons and wives joined us on the 30th. We all liked the privacy of having our separate caboose, no one above us or next to us as in a normal hotel room. They all were very clean and have nice extras; robes, heated towel bar, two person jetted tub. The beds were very comfortable. Our daughter-in-law loved the Lavendar caboose-her favorite flower! We of course went to a nearby lavendar farm that Olaf recommended before we headed home. The breakfasts were superb. Olaf and Charlotte are very gracious while they serve. Olaf filled us in on the cabooses in the works and their themes. We hope to return to experience them. We have since recommended the caboose getaway to friends and family. Vicki and Scott Taylor - Oregon
5 on August 11, 2011
We thoroughly enjoyed our two nights in the "Grape Escape". We absolutely loved the caboose and the creativeness it took to transform this train into our own little special getaway. The breakfast was top notch and we really appreciated the attention to detail in the dining car, it made us feel that we had traveled back into a more elegant time period. Olaf and Charlotte are wonderful hosts. I would and have raved about this Red Caboose getaway to anyone staying on the Olympic Peninsula. This definitely a place where we would return.
5 on August 10, 2011
If you want an adventure, this is the place to stay! It was so much fun to stay in a caboose! A lot of time and thought has been put into this B&B. There is such an attention to detail. The breakfasts were amazing, the best we've ever had! Charlotte & Olaf, the owners, were wonderful hosts. We will definitely go back.
4.6 on August 08, 2011
Olaf & Charlotte are the best, we stayed just one night but loved the whole experience. We stayed in the Circus caboose and we along with our son totally enjoyed it. If you love to eat breakfast then the whole dining expereince and food is out of this world, Charlotte puts on an incredible spread....Olaf you were right we skipped lunch! Can't wait to come see Casino caboose next year! Thank you Dean, Molly & Daniel
5 on August 05, 2011
Just the experience I was looking for. Great attention to detail, cozy, charming. My breakfast in the Zephyr dining car was fabulous. I will definitely stay here again and again.
5 on August 04, 2011
We highly recommend Red Caboose Getaway, Charlotte and Olaf- pay attention to details and made our stay extra special. The breakfast is superb as well as very creative. We look forward to our next visit!!
4.2 on August 02, 2011
We recently spent two nights in a caboose with a "wine country" theme. Olaf and Charlotte have done a fine job of converting the old cabooses into themed bedrooms. They were very nice people and served a fabulous breakfast. The room was very clean and tidy. The only knock I have was the bed. This bed was mentioned by someone else in the room's guestbook. It was a queen sized bed with a too soft mattress and box springs. I am 6' 2" 225 lbs. and it felt like I was in a hammock. My wife naturally rolled towards the middle and against me all night long keeping us both awake. The second night she slept on the couch and said it was great. We are used to a firm mattress and we have never had that problem. All in all, other than the bed, I would recommend "Red Caboose" as a nice place to stay.
Upon examination we found the box spring under the mattress broken in two places so the mattress had no support. We have replaced both mattress and box spring with a new Sealy Posterpedic firm mattress. Had we been made aware of the problem we would have replaced it for the second night. Our guests have always raved how great our beds are.

This was a surprise for my husband and he was really pleased with it. Sitting high above the world in the chairs up top he could view the world passing by. The caboose was really clean and very pleasant. Olaf and his wife were very friendly and the food was fabulous.
4.8 on July 31, 2011
Caboose a little too rustic for us. Breakfast was wonderful! Hosts were great.
We are sorry this guest found our cabooses "too rustic." Our accomodations are advertised what they are-your own private caboose most with 2 person whirlpool tub, gas fireplace, queen feather bed set on 3 acres around a central duck pond with 4 course elegant breakfast in our 1937 private dining car.
- Olaf (innkeeper)
4.8 on July 27, 2011
I surprised my husband with this weekend getaway for his birthday. He has always wanted his own caboose in the back yard, but says now he can just come here. Much better and more cost effective, if you ask me. We had an absolutely wonderful weekend and would recommend it to anyone who is looking for a new and different experience. We stayed in the Western and were amazed at the accomodations and attention to detail. They even had a real claw foot tub complete with about 30 western movies on DVD! We'll definitely go back.
4.6 on July 19, 2011
The Red Caboose is a great place to spend a night. The owners are passionate about their place and the service is top rate. The breakfast is first class.
4.4 on July 14, 2011
We chose to stay a night at The Red Caboose Getaway to celebrate my husbands 60th birthday. I chose the wine themed caboose, since he is a wine connoisseur, which was perfect. Olaf suggested a great local seafood restaurant and a lavendar farm to visit. The location was perfect for catching the ferry over to Victoria on Vancouver Island, after a truly, exquisite, gourmet breakfast prepared by Charlotte. We enjoyed hearing Olafs interesting Train stories before our departure. We shall always remember our getaway at the unique, romantic, & very comfortable Red Caboose. We hope to stay in their other cabooses if we are ever, again, in the Sequim area. Thank you for your fine hospitality for a memorable night! Kathy & Marty, Florida

Stayed for two days and had the best two breakfast meals I have had at any B&B or hotel. The Grape Escape car was awesome. Loved the attention to detail on all of the little things you have added. Thanks for a great stay. George Vancouver, BC
4.6 on July 08, 2011
We were so pleased with our delightful stay at Red Caboose Getaway: the attention to detail, the warm friendly atmosphere, and the great homemade food! The amenities were whimsical and comfortable and we had a great time (and slept much better than we ever have on a moving train.) All Aboard!!!
4.8 on July 06, 2011
Charlotte and Olaf were outstanding hosts and went above and beyond what one might typically expect in order to make us feel comfortable, at home, and oriented to the community. Breakfast was a spectacular gourmet treat and the quaint and exceptional rooms offered an incredibly unique experience. Overall it was an outstanding visit and we look forward to returning in the future and referring friends and family.
5 on July 03, 2011
We have spent just one night there but it has been great. What you see outside has nothing to do with what you will find inside the rooms. By far, nicer and cleaner than almost each and every B&B we have been before (you know that sometimes "charm and "too old" are too close to each other...). Breakfast was great and the restaurant nothing short than perfect. Thanks for the experience!
4.2 on June 28, 2011
SOOOOO creative. Olaf offered a lot of knowledge and information about the trains and about the area. Breakfast was amazing and we especially enjoyed the soaking tub in the "Grape Escape!" It was obvious how much this business meant to them-it was a passion they had. This was a wonderful start to our anniversary weekend. We will be going back.
5 on June 23, 2011
I happened upon a treasure located in Sequim Washington. Who knew a caboose would be our favorite place on our vacation. First thing our older teenagers said when we opened the door to our caboose was, "This is the coolest place ever!" Well you can't beat that. :) The breakfast was fabulous to boot and Olaf and Charlotte were the perfect hosts. We hope to go back for a visit soon!
4.6 on June 22, 2011
I hope to visit again and experience a different themed caboose. Breakfast was over the top and amazing.
5 on June 21, 2011
We love Red Caboose Getaway! We started going in 2006 and have gone back at least once a year since, and hopefully, we always will--we have withdrawal if we go too long without a visit. It is a lovely, relaxing place and a completely unique experience, particularly if you love trains. Each themed caboose is a theme-decorated labor of love, full of fun little details and new ones being added all the time. Many have large jetted tubs, and they all have wi-fi, fridges and the like. The breakfasts are out of this world--I've never had better food--and the hosts accommodate your dietary restrictions if they know them ahead of time. Just a fantastic getaway--I can't imagine a better bed and breakfast experience.
4.4 on May 29, 2011
Clean, comfortable and quiet. Olaf & Charlotte are great hosts. Breakfast is superb. We loved the copper tub in the Grape Escape.
4.8 on May 20, 2011
Spent a relaxing two nights. The breakfasts were outstanding. The location was close to town,but very quiet(no road noise). Olaf was willing to share information which was very useful.

Honeymoon at fifty+ on Easter sunday and monday; the breakfasts were gourmet +++++. Thank-you for the suggestion for the Dockside at the John Wayne Marina, Easter dinner was just as good as the breakfasts. love K&G

I loved the Red Caboose Getaway! We spent two nights in the 'Orient Express' caboose. It was clean. I liked the way it was decorated---posters from the movie 'Murder on the Orient Express' and other railroad items. Innovative---I liked the clock on the ceiling. The caboose was more spacious than what I expected. The owners seemed to think of everything---even providing a copy of the movie 'Murder on the Orient Express' which we enjoyed seeing again. The breakfast in the morning was very good. Four courses! More than I normally eat and items that I wouldn't even have thought about ordering. The host and hostess were very nice and welcoming. Both have much knowledge about trains and were willing to answer questions. I am sure that they are asked the same questions almost every day by someone new. I would recommend the Red Caboose Getaway and will go back. I might like to try another caboose on a different track but I really liked the 'Orient Express' caboose and would be happy to stay there again.
3.8 on April 27, 2011
Fun exploring the cabbose learning about trains a added plus touch of history
4.4 on April 25, 2011
This was our first stay at a b and b and it was perfect! The owners were so nice, and too fun to interacct with. We were the only guests at the time so we got to talk with them a lot and showed us around the grape escape as well. So very fun! And of course their pup pickles was a cutie and so adorable! My husband works oon trains and he even enjoyed staying on the caboose. Thanks for such a great time!
4.8 on April 18, 2011
My husband & I went here for our 21st Anniversary. It was better than I had hoped the attention to detail in everything from the themed caboose (We stayed in the western)with a towel warmer fresh flowers, valor bath robes, and even local made lavender bath bubbles was fabulous! Olaf and his lovely wife made a delicious 4 course breakfast served in the vintage dinning train car. We found a souvenir menu waiting for us at breakfast that was personalized with our anniversary and names! What a great time, I can't say enough!
5 on April 09, 2011
The accomodations were great and the Breakfast fantastic. Highly Recomend. We stayed in the Western Themed caboose.

Originally made the reservation for the wrong date. When I contacted them and explained my problem they were great and changed my reservation to the date I needed. Caboose was outstanding and the breakfast was stupendous!!! Richard Fucillo

We had a totally delightful time enjoying the Red Caboose, very confortable and full of original details that brought back lots of good memories from my childhood. The Dining Car and Breakfast in the morning was indeed a highlight . We will definitely return.

Quirky but unique experience. Must-do for any railroading buffs. Great host/hostess - very accommodating and personalizing. Breakfast was seriously good, in the well-appointed classic dining car.

We stayed in the Grape Escape. Great atmosphere, relaxing slipper tub, super amenities. Breakfast was first class. Olaf and Charlotte are very cordial & enthusiastic hosts.
5 on February 28, 2011
My husband and I stayed here for Valentines day and had the best time! We plan on making this a yearly tradition so we have the chance to stay in each room. The breakfast was wonderful and the dinning cart was so much fun. Charlotte and Olaf are so accommodating. They were making something with crab for breakfast and knew we did not like seafood and made something different just for us.
4.2 on February 27, 2011
We thouroughly enjoyed our stay. At first glance, the Red Caboose may not seem like much, but once you've slept in your cozy train car and eaten at the dining car, you are impressed enough to write a review when you get home. We got snowed in and loved it. Perfectly romantic!!
4.4 on February 27, 2011
This was a fun and unique experience. The rooms were very comfortable and nostalgic. The hosts were gracious and the food was fantastic. We will definitely stay again. Next time we will try a different theme.
4.4 on February 24, 2011
Our stay in the Casey Jones caboose was a little step back into nostalgia. It was a wonderful experience and the cabaoose was a fantastic re-creation with numerous little reminders of the glory days of railroading. The fun sleeping experience was only the prelude to the breakfast dining experience. Olaf and Charlotte perpare the most fabulous breakfast - this must be 1937 again!!! The railroads of yesteryear could not top the culinary delight Charlotte had prepared and Olaf served. Whether you are a railroad buff or not, this experience will make you one for at least a night and the morning breakfast will satisfy you for the day.
4.6 on February 01, 2011
Charlotte and Olaf are wonderful people and make you feel very comfortable the minute you arrive. The Caboose's are amazing and so unique! The breakfast is so worth getting up for and you eat in a dinning car! Overall it was an outstanding experience and we will go back.
4.6 on November 18, 2010
We actually had to cancel our original reservation due to a medical emergency. Olaf and Charlotte were kind enough to allow us to reschedule and we are so happy they did. We had expected to have just a fun and unique evening and it turned into such a wonderful time and a great memory. Our 'Orient Express' was cozy and warm. We couldn't stop smiling while there. We watched a movie we probably would not have otherwise watched, and the food...AMAZING!!!! The magic that Charlotte creates in the kitchen is worth waking up for, the ducks on the property are wonderful to watch, Pickle is well, a cutie, and the one thing that just amazed us were the sheets. Granted, we visited in winter, but we fondly refer to them as the 'teddy bear' sheets. They were fleece and so very soft and warm...we still dream of those sheets. We will be back, and perhaps even try another caboose...however, the "Orient Express" is hard to beat. Thank you Olaf and Charlotte!

Enjoyed every minute in this exceptional refinished caboose. The owners did everything to make the stay memorable for us. The interior of the caboose is luxurious, quiet and helped us truly feel we had a romantic interlude from life.

A great place to get away. Charotte and Olaf took great care of my girlfriend and I. We stayed in the lavender car. Will come back again.
4.6 on October 10, 2010
The Red Caboose Getaway was even better than we expected! We stayed in the Grape Escape car and it was wonderful! I loved the fireplace and the copper tub. The heated floor in the bathroom was so nice in the morning! I am still raving about the four course breakfast. We will definitely come again, and stay longer next time. One night is not enough!
5 on October 06, 2010
Yes! Rather than going on our vacation traveling,(Montana had our eye) we decided to treat ourselves to ,, yes a full-on leather sectionals sofa. And then on a spur'o the moment, do one night in an area we love, Sequim Wa. area at this B&B. Everything was superb but i'd just like to add, the ease, which a vacation should include. First the reservation,(online) the getting there, from Seattle, via the Edmonds/Kingston ferry and just a 60 miles of total drive! Check-in, this is not a hotel, you will listen to your host. And as he said, you don't have to go out of state, Europe and the like to get-a-way. A tip: this gem in NOT always booked, and the caboose makeovers are remarkable, outstanding !!

My husband and I stayed in the circus caboose for his birthday, and it was wonderful, and best of all, we only live three miles from here, so the trip home was a quick one. The room was fun, made me smile (thank you for the welcome in magnets), lived in the jacuzzi :-). Breakfast was five star served by friendly faces. Thank you for accommodating my food request. It was private, pleasant, and just a relaxing time. We WILL return to check out the other caboose's. Thank you again Charlotte and Olaf!

We decided to have a quick holiday overnight close to home. We thought the Red Caboose getaway looked so unique and it was! Olaf and Charlotte took care of every little detail. I loved the bed! So often I can't sleep on hotel beds but I slept like a log. Breakfast was a real treat for my husband. I am vey restricted in what I can eat and they bet over backward to accommodate me. Overall, we loved it and will be back!

Cozy charm and great hospitality are just the beginnings with the breakfast exceeding excellence. The only flaw I could find was that bed was too soft for my bad back.

This place is great!!! The rooms are so cool and the breakfast was amazing! I recommend the Peanut Butter Hot Chocolate...yummmm! The owners are so friendly and nice! We had a great time and will be back for sure.

Very original accomodation and friendly owners. The breakfast was the most sophisticated one we have enjoyed so far in any hotel. If you can afford it (we received a B&B gift certificate from friends), I definitely recommend the Red Caboose Getaway.

The food is gourmet, the rooms are a delight, the town and people are very friendly and the experience is one of a kind!

Are you tired of the nice but predictable stay at a bed and breakfast location? If you are, then the Red Caboose Getaway is just the place for you. This place will give you a very unique adventure that you will remember always and definately want to come back to time and time again. Each individual caboose will fit anyone's fantasy and particular personality and per olaf there are more choices coming in the future. My husband and i stayed in the Grape Escape and just walking thru the door found it just what we had hoped for and what was shown online. Even though the cabooses can be small they have found away to decorate them to give you the feeling of home. The details are outstanding for each theme. Waking up to the sound of birds chirping as the sun rises stems from the home they have created not just for their guests but for the wildlife as well. Now to the breakfast that awaits you each morning of your stay. Charlotte again shows her talent not just in decorating your caboose but her creativity on the plate put before you. She loves to cook and each course shows that with presentation and flavor. You will not be disapointed. One other thing do not miss hearing the stories of Olaf and Charlotte's adventure in building their dream you are staying and what they could have in store for your next stay. C

Out of all the B&B's we have stayed in, this one stands out. This was our 2nd trip. The place has great atmosphere. Each caboose has unique decorations. The private dining car is so fun and breakfasts are beyond amazing. We will be back again soon....

This will be a very memorable experience for us. This is by far our favorite hotel. The staff is friendly and helpful. The food was outstanding. The size of the rooms and comfort are 10/10!

I was in De-Stress mode (job related). This was the perfect place to do so. Olaf & Charlotte did more than make us feel welcome. We would'nt do the stay justice without mentioning ... Pickle!!:)

We stayed in the "Murder on the Orient Express" caboose and it was a truly unique experience. It was very romantic, quiet and there was plenty to do in the area. We can't wait to come back and hope to eventually stay in every caboose. Charlotte and Olaf were wonderful hosts and the breakfast was more amazing than I can put into words! Go there!

My wife and I enjoyed every minute of our stay at the Red Caboose. The area is beautiful and the Caboose we had was an awesome place to be. It made us feel warm and very comfortable. Charlotte and Olaf gave my wife and I the most rewarding experience of a life time, especially being that this was our first ever stay at a B&B. The Breakfast and service was amazing, we felt like royalty.
5 on September 01, 2009
Each caboose has a different theme and decor is perfect. 5 course breakfast, selling and service perfect. Olaf and his wife, the chef, are delightful hosts.

Both the bed and the breakfast were unique!

I proposed to my girlfriend and she accepted. The caboose was so romantic and breakfast was first-class. The hosts, Olaf & Charlotte, were the best.

Innkeepers Olaf and Charlotte host a B&B for the train-lover in you, as well as amaze your tastebuds with unique breakfast fare. They have preserved the cabooses well, especially the coupla seating area which is a great place to sit and just relax. A wonderful expeience even the spouse of a train-lover will appreciate!

From the moment you turn the key, you are transported to another era and tucked away in luxury. In the Grape Escape Caboose, it's the slipper tub. But there is a theme for everyone here- meaning you'll be sure to return to experience them all. Breakfast is beyond words and the hosts endearing.

We went to a wedding in Sequim, Wa August of 09. Most rooms in Sequim are, in my opinion, not worth their cost. Not so with the Red Caboose! Olaf and Charlotte have gone far beyond to make your stay unique and enjoyable. the 4 course breakfast in the morning included in your nights stay could be served in any 5 star restaurant. Each caboose has a different theme and has been lovingly decorated. The jacuzzi was huge, and comfy. small side note: no shower in the Orient Express or Lavendar room, be prepared to wash your hair in the tub.

Awesome, wonderful!! A very unique B&B. We loved the privateness and the pampering we received. The breakfast was fantastic!!! We definitely recommend this as superb place to stay.

We spent Friday and Saturday night in the "Red Caboose" (The Orient Express) and were very impressed with the accommodations and the owners, Olaf and Charlotte. Saturday, July 4th was our anniversary and this was a great get away to celebrate the occasion. The breakfast that is served, different each day, was GREAT and the service is first class. We will be going back someday soon.

We stayed here for two amazing nights for our honeymoon on July 12 & 13 2008. We stayed in the Lavender and Circus ones. Olaf and Charlotte are fabulous hosts and have such a passion for this great get-a-way!!! We can't wait to go back this coming weekend for our first anniversary!

This is a fantastic caboose, every design and detail perfectly done. But it is only half the story. The Silver Eagle Zephyr dining car is amazing and breakfast unbelievable. Best, most attentive and talented hosts of any place you can stay. Truly a step back in time when service and quality mattered.

Exceptional attention to detail. We stayed in the Western Caboose. Comfy and quiet with great owners who were attentive.

We love this place and try to go back twice a year or so. The gourmet breakfasts are out of this world! Hosts are fantastic and interesting. Luxurious and romantic accommodations. Bravo!

We stayed in the lavender caboose (each one has a theme), the decor was very relaxing, as was the jacuzzi tub and very comfortable bed. The gourmet breakfast was amazing--beautifully served and a culinary treat! I am allergic to milk, which they asked about ahead of time, and specially cooked mine so that I could enjoy the same meal as my husband. It was truly a delightful retreat for us.

We wanted a fun place to stay that would be good for the two of us as well as our son. He loved the Carnival Caboose, he kept saying "this is the best day ever". I liked it mainly because it was quiet and had a jacuzzi tub, which was great after the day hike we took. Breakfast in the dining car was fantastic. My son is a pickey eater so didn't fit with the food well, but asked for some bacon and it was available for him, even though it was not on the menu. We will go back again and try one of the other themes, i.e. the Lavender Caboose. I loved reading the guest book of past visitors.

We spent our honeymoon locally at the Red Caboose. Wonderful hosts, food exquisite! Location location location!!!

The Cabooses are each themed, and decorated beautifully, but the breakfast was delightful & extraordinaire!

The caboose we reserved had a lavender theme; Its ambience and decor made it seem like a dream. The whirlpool tub was a wonderful sight; Soaking in it made for a very relaxing night. The lavender field mural painted on the wall was our favorite caboose decoration of all. The gourmet breakfast served in the train diner; In our opinion, we've never tasted finer. The bed kept us warm, as did the nice fireplace; This caboose is just the ticket to escape from the rat race. Our wonderful innkeepers were Charlotte and Olaf; For a most delightful weekend getaway, we can't thank them enough. We recommend these cabooses for relaxation and rest, and firmly declare the Red Caboose Getaway "the best!"

We originally had booked one night at this bed and breakfast, but after the wonderful service, FANTASTIC breakfast and the fun of staying in the "Circus" Car, we asked to stay another night!! Charlotte and Olaf are wonderful hosts and the breakfasts were out of this world. Beautifully presented with local flair and flavors, they were absolutely scrumptious. While we stayed in the Circus car which was a load of fun, "station Master" Olaf gave us a tour of some of the other cars. The "Lavender" car is exquisite and we can't wait to see the completed "Grape Escape!" I highly recommend this incredible B and B if you are anywhere even remotely near the the town of Sequim, or Seattle, or Washington! Oh and did I mention the breakfasts were top notch?!!
5 on November 29, 2007
As the first guests in the Lavender Limited, we must say our setting was exquisite! Olaf and Charlotte definitely attend to even the most minute details! The breakfasts were gourmet to the max and delicious! My husband knew I've always liked trains and still travel by rail when I get the opportunity. We were like kids in a candy shop and would return at the drop of a hat! We highly recommend the Red Caboose Getaway!

Olaf and Charlotte ask for anything special you may want when you arrive. I said I would need a bubble bath after a three hour ride on a motorcycle and they had a terrific set up in the western caboose. The breakfast was far more than you would expect from a B&B.

Unique, comfortable, and friendly. Knowledgeable hosts provide interesting info, Breakfasts rank with world class restaurants.

The room was whimsical and fun. Decorated in a Western theme. The food was delicious. Olaf and Charlotte were very warm and made us feel right at home. This bed and breakfast is incredible, but not just because you are staying in caboose cars. This is the total package. Olaf acted as both conductor and local guide. Every place he recommended was excellent from food to must-see-places.

I have stayed at B&Bs with every theme imaginable, but Red Caboose Getaway is in a class all of its own. The attention-to-detail and creativity(in the individual caboose/suites as well as the meticulously restored dining car) is amazing. The innkeepers are delightful, and our breakfast was one of the best and most elegantly presented I have experienced anywhere. I hope I will have an opportunity to return to this one-of-a-kind B&B.
