Even if you are not a train enthusiast, this is an experience worth enjoying. Olaf and Charlotte are very nice hosts, the caboose was roomier than most hotel rooms, and the little touches were tasteful and a piece of history. I don't remember the last time we had a four course gourmet breakfast. It was very nice, and despite lots of wonderful food, was not overly heavy. Dining in the lovely dining car was wonderful, the service fantastic.
We couldn't make breakfast the first morning because we had to catch an early ferry to Victoria, so we received a lovely sack breakfast for the road. Very nice touch.
All in all this was a wonderful experience. We'd do it again.
Somebody who never stayed here intentionally brought their rating down because they don't accept four year olds. Sheesh, can't you be the owner of a property and have rules? What's up with that? I for one was glad there weren't a bunch of little ones around. We love children, but this wasn't that kind of weekend for that.
Stay here, enjoy a weekend together without the kid(s). You deserve it.
