I have, once again, had a fantastic time at the Red Caboose Getaway! I love staying the night in the decorated cabooses. They are warm and inviting, complete with a gas fireplace and spa tub. The gourmet breakfast served in an authentic dining car is a wonderful experience, and the food is amazing too. I have visited twice and will most likely come again! Red Caboose offers a great couples' escape.

We recently stayed two nights at the Red Caboose. We loved our caboose and our stay. Leif and Jamie were excellent hosts. They recommended several activities and places for dinner. We enjoyed all of their recommendations. We have recommended Red Caboose Getaway to several of our friends.


Unique experience

I would call this a quirky, unique little spot! If you want luxury- it’s not for you. That said, the caboose we stayed in was very cozy and spotless. The owners are the most gracious of hosts & the Location is excellent for exploring Sequim. The breakfast was delicious and served on elegant china. All in all- a truly fun experience! I’d recommend it to anyone looking for something out of the norm!

A unique and fun getaway

We stayed in the circus car and enjoyed the fun decorations, whirlpool tub, comfortable bed, and opportunity to watch circus-themed DVDs. Breakfast was a highlight of our stay, with delicious food and great service, all in context of a perfect re-creation of a first class dining car. The hosts paid attention to every detail, including a souvenir menu with the current date. So glad we stayed at the Red Caboose Getaway.


Great Valentine's Day getaway

This overnight was a surprise for my wife. She was thrilled when we pulled into the driveway and I told her it was a B & B. The Orient Express caboose was just the right mix of nostalgia and modern convenience. We watched the movie (the one starring Albert Finney). The breakfast the next morning was one of the best in my 71 years. I am not an acventurous diner but each course was absolutely great. Don't miss the second to the last if they are still serving the crepe with blueberries and whipped cream.


Great place to stay

We had a great time, the Owners are wonderful people. It is a great place to jump over to Port Angeles for a trip to Victoria BC or anywhere along the coast for some great trails. We recommend it highly. thank you


Toot toot!!

It is a unique B&B in the caboose accomodations, fun themes in each one. Ours was a western theme, complete with bullet holes in the windows. TV pixelated a lot. On the property is a small pond with LOTS of entertaining ducks and widgets (?). Very nice breakfast in the silver eagle club car. It was a fun stay.

Center cupola is left intact with high backed conductor chairs and a place to plug in all your laptops/phones/cameras.
