Another Perfect Stay

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.

Unique place to stay

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%.

Outstanding cabooses

5 on July 23, 2017

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.

Innkeeper Response
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.

All aboard!!

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!

Loved the Caboose!

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.

Innkeeper Response
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.

Party of 4

4.8 on July 15, 2017

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.

Great place to stay with gracious host

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.

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.

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.

A unique and inviting getaway at Red Caboose

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.
