Parents 50th wedding anniversay moon weekend getaway

5 on October 25, 2017

My siblings and I got together and planned our parents 50th wedding anniversary moon weekend at Red Caboose Getaway. When I purchased there caboose I was hopeful that they would have a good time. I did not expect to hear so much excitement in my mothers voice when she called me from her caboose to tell me how wonderful everything was. My mom told me that they have never experienced any thing like this in the 50 years that they have been married. She said the caboose was plush and very romantic. She also told me about the wonderful breakfast they had every morning that was as she said "cooked by a chef like the ones you see on TV". When my parents got back home they couldn't stop talking about how thankful they were to have had such a wonderful weekend. i am very thankful for my parents and their better than expected weekend at Red Caboose Getaways. I hope to take my husband there on one of our anniversaries. Thank you for service we appreciate you Charlotte & Olaf.


Such a fun getaway!

We had a great stay here! The couple that runs this is friendly and accommodating. The caboose we stayed in was great, We plan on trying another caboose next time we are staying in the area! It was a nice quiet property with ducks and song birds. The breakfast was delicious and varied each day.


Food is amazing, Caboose is awesome!

The food blew my mind. Every bit as good as the famous chef's in Seattle and New York. The caboose was delightful!! My husband and I look forward to staying in every single one! We will be getting my parent's a gift card for a night. This is a hometown treasure and it's time they experienced the creativity!


Life on the Tracks

Really enjoyed our trip to the past when travel was by rail. We stayed in Casey Jones Caboose, explored the historical room decor and gained an appreciation for the hard work of the caboose operator. Every detail exhibited authenticity. Dining car breakfast was memorable with great conversation among other guests.

Unique fun stay

I had booked this B&B as a surprise for my friends traveling with me. They were so surprised when we pulled up to cabooses! Our friends were in Casey Jones and loved all the RR memorabilia. We enjoyed the lavender car. We had videos with a lavender theme and music CDs which we put on and felt a million miles from anywhere. I loved sitting up in the cupola reading and watching the world go by. The breakfast was as good as other reviewers have stated. Olaf showed us inside some of the other cars which we really enjoyed. He is a wealth of information! The only suggestion I would offer them is to tidy up the area around the cabooses. Landscaping could use some attention. All in all a wonderful stay!!


Amazing place to stay!

My husband and I went to celebrate his birthday, our baby on the way and our recent wedding! The room was even better than the pictures. Staff gave excellent dinner recommendation and had up to date information on the current town happenings. Breakfast was my favorite part! 4 course meal served in the elegant dining car! The coffee was local and kept flowing. Not a single detail was missed. Quiet and adult only place. A great location to relax and if you are lucky you'll pick a room with a big jet tub!


Fun Getaway at the Red Caboose

4.4 on September 07, 2017

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.


What fun this was

3.8 on September 06, 2017

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
