What a unique and fun experience! Leif and his wife were very hospitable and very accommodating with our late arrival. We reserved two Cabooses, which were both very beautifully decorated. Breakfast was absolutely incredible as well. I felt like I was in a 5-star restaurant. Would highly recommend!

Unique Experience!

Absolutely loved our "Grape Escape" room! Very cozy and adorable. Breakfast was incredible and set us up well for our day of hiking in Olympic National Park. Telling our friends we slept in a converted train car inspired many ooh's and ah's. This was definitely one of the most unique places we've stayed! A little tip from us: There's a winery not to far away, Olympic Cellars, grab a bottle or two from there and some nibbles from the grocery store and tuck yourselves in for the night with the fireplace.

Wonderful !

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.

Gotta' go again

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.

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!

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