“What an experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 14, 2012

Stayed here this summer on a trip from Seattle to San Diego with our son. This was absolutely magnificent.
Excellent room, (nicely themed) superb breakfast and a nice tour by Olaf.
Not cheap, but really worth it!

What a great place to stay. We stayed in the Lavender Express. Everything was very elegant and tasteful. Crystal wine glasses, feather topped bed, plush robes, large jacuzzi, etc. Olaf and Charlotte are excellent hosts and the daily breakfast is the best we've every had. The food is amazing and the presentation perfect. We would definitely stay here again.

My wife gave me, her train nut husband, a surprise two-night stay at the Red Caboose Getaway. Our caboose, the wine themed one, was beautifully appointed and cozy. The breakfast in the dining car was beyond elegant; kudos to Charlotte for the gourmet meal-- delicious, unusual, and beautifully presented. Olaf, the proprietor, obviously takes great pride in his caboose restorations, their various theme decors, and offers wonderful stories of how he found the cabooses and got them to his property. I have every intention of returning year after year, sampling all the cabooses and enjoying encores of the delicious food. I couldn't recommend this place more for a combination of quaintness and class!

Room Tip: Can't miss. Just pick one.

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.

Room Tip: The Bouillabaise at the Dockside Grill was excellent, and what a great view.

We enjoyed our two night stay here very much. The Orient Express on track #2 is great. The breakfast was fantastic and beyond our expectations. There are many interesting things to do in the area including walks on Dungeness Spit and in Olympic National Park.

Room Tip: Orient Express on track @2

We just came back from a great 2 day get away to the Red Caboose. Our stay could not have been better. Olaf and Charlotte were gracious hosts. The breakfasts were to die for (all local food, fresh roasted coffee and a little desert with breakfast no less!!). We stayed in the Grape Escape and it was comfy and cosy to say the least. Nice big soaking tub with plenty of hot water. The bed was incredibly comfortable and the place was equally quiet at night. Lots of things to see and do close by.

We would go back in a heart beat!

We spent a lovely weekend in June in a bright red caboose on Track 2 at the Red Caboose Getaway just outside of Sequim. A comfortable bed, a fantastic jacuzzi tub, and a 4-course breakfast that was "to die for"! Charlotte and Olaf run the place and are a lovely couple with tons of knowledge about trains (Olaf) and a fantastic way with food (Charlotte). There is a pond in the center of the property with ducks, lots of birds fluttering around everywhere, and you go to sleep to the sound of frogs chirping in the pond. We can't wait to go back and try another "track".
Oh, and after a breakfast of Charlotte's design, you won't need to worry about packing a lunch during your day trips to Hurricane Ridge, Port Angeles, or a wine tasting tour in the area. Breakfasts are served at 8:30 in a real vintage dining car with white linen, china and crystal.

Room Tip: Take a look on-line to choose your track (caboose). All are of a different theme - Grape Escape, Wes...
