Bryan and I are attracted to staying in unique places while on vacation. The accommodations are an important part of the travel experience for us. One of our favorite places to stay is the Red Caboose Getaway B&B in Sequim, WA. Each caboose has a theme which is reflected throughout the interior décor. The owners, Olaf and Charlotte, have clearly put a lot of time and energy into the beautifully decorated cabooses.
For our first trip we stayed in “The Grape Escape.” The décor was grape and wine-themed. The bathroom had a beautiful copper tub which was perfect for a relaxing soak. Included in the room’s DVD selection was The Great Escape.
On our next visit, we stopped for only one night with my sister while on an Olympic National Park road trip. We stayed in the “Circus” caboose which sleeps up to four people. Upon our arrival, Charlotte and Olaf had spelled out our names and the words “welcome” on a magnetic board inside the caboose. While this caboose can accommodate more than two people, it is not ideal when traveling with your husband and sister. The bathroom door has a half door that doesn’t reach to the floor so neither my husband nor sister bathed while we were there due to lack of privacy.
On our most recent trip, Bryan and I stayed in the “Western” which was decorated in western and cowboy-themed décor and complete with multiple classic Western movies to enjoy.
While we love the themed-cabooses, the best part is breakfast. Breakfast is served in the “Silver Eagle” dining car. Each caboose has its own table (I dislike B&Bs where everyone sits at the same table so I love the Red Caboose B&B’s arrangement). Breakfast is a four-course meal which starts with warm, freshly-baked bread and ends with dessert. A small menu is at the table so you know what food you will be served. The breakfast is wonderfully made.
My favorite part is the first-course bread. Our orange pull-apart bread was served at the table…
A few minutes later, Bryan and I devoured it.
I would pay just to eat breakfast here. My goal is to eventually stay in all the different themed-cabooses.
Red Caboose Getaway B&B provides a memorable experience – would highly recommend it to anyone.
