Thanks to several scenic train rides in the U.S., we've fallen in love with locomotives all over again. But what if we were to tell you that you could rent a caboose in Washington for your next unique getaway?
The Red Caboose Getaway is nestled in the Olympic Peninsula's town of Sequim and is only a 2-hour drive from Seattle.
There is a "track" of nine trains in a rainbow of colors, costing between $222 to $242 a night for a bogie that sleeps four. That's only $60 per person if you split the cost with friends.
This railroad-themed B&B's themes range from circus and western-themed ones to a pretty lavender or one spilling with wine inspo. Each car has its own quirky decor and is filled with Native American craft, wildflowers or sports collectibles.
If you're SO is a train-lover, it'll be perfect for them because you can snuggle up and watch everything from movies like the Orient Express and sit in high-backed conductor chairs!
You won't have to ride coach in this railcar though. To accommodate first-class passengers, each of the cars comes with a queen-sized bed, a fireplace to cuddle by, and a small fridge to chill your beers.
There's also cable service, and TVs with DVDs for entertainment.
A bathroom with whirlpool tubs, toiletries, and soft robes will have you feeling like it's a holiday.
There's free WiFi and a gourmet breakfast that includes baked banana and the orange pull-apart bread, with views of an adorable duck pond is included with your 'ticket' to this spot.
There's plenty to do around here if you are looking for a daytime adventure. And it's some of the best things to do in Washington too.
The famed lavender farms are only 15-minutes away. The Olympic National Forest, including the Hoh Rainforest, beaches, mountains with exotic views and lighthouses are all close by. It's also just a day trip away from Victoria B.C., Canada.
Isn't it true then, that some of the best places are just a train ride away? We think so.
