Pirates Cove Caboose has been artfully remodeled from top to bottom. It's the result of the dreams and passion for trains of previous owners Ed and Sue Taylor who purchased and remodeled the Great Northern Caboose in 2001. Care was taken to use the highest quality materials throughout.
The iron base and beautiful aged hardwood floors were preserved. New walls and a higher ceiling were built in the style of the original Great Northern caboose. All the original hardware was carefully preserved and returned to the renovated structure of the caboose.
The views from the property are spectacular.

Kayaks are included with your rental. Explore Hammersley Inlet, as you observe seals, salmon, water fowl, and clams and mussels along the shores. Plan your kayak trip to start two hours prior to low tide, and the tide will help navigate you to Hope Island State Park. Pack a picnic and play on the beach while the tides turns. Then return to your cabin, with the tide moving in your favor. It is a pleasant and easy trip with great scenery the whole way.
The property is beautiful. . . forested behind Pirate's Cove Caboose, Pirate's Creek on one side and Puget Sound water views in front. An addition on the back side was added for a bedroom and kitchen, but from the front, it still looks like the original caboose.
Photo taken from inside the cabin. Tug boats pulling huge loads will surprise you.
The living room has incredible water views. A Sony TV sits on the base of an antique stove. You'll find a collection of DVD's, but no TV reception.
The living room is adorned with leather furniture, a TV for movies (no television reception) and the original aged floor boards of the old caboose.
The big window brings in the views of the water.
A gas flame stove to keep the cabins toasty warm. There are also electric base board heaters throughout.
The kitchen is well equipped with pots, pans, and dishes. There is a washer and dryer for guests to use, a full sized refrigerator, an electric range and microwave.
A small round dining table is in the kitchen area.
A Queen bed, four singles (2 sets of bunks) and a sofa sleeper could accommodate up to 8, but the cabins is small for that many. It is perfect for a couple, or a family with children. There is one bathroom with a shower, and not much privacy from bed to bed.
The bunks use all the old hardware from the original caboose.
The queen bedroom has a memory foam mattress, down comforter and pillows and a beautiful hand made quilt.
The ceilings above the bunks has a curve to duplicate the ceiling of the old caboose, but the walls are all a bit higher to give it a more spacious feel.
A leather sofa sleeper with memory foam mattress atop a slat base accommodates a second couple in comfort. It is nothing like a typical sofa sleeper.
View from the bedroom.
What a view from the hot tub!
One guest sent of photos of orcas that he spotted while soaking in the tub.
Kayaks are included with your rental. Go out sight seeing, observe wildlife, go fishing or exploring the shores along Hammersley Inlet.
Pirate's Cove Caboose is a fisherman's dream.
You'll enjoy unexpected splendor all year round. Watch a storm from the living room, or have your morning coffee in bed and watch the fog lift. Watch the gulls, ducks and other waterfowl play on the waters surface.
Two hour prior to high tide, head out on the kayaks toward Hope Island State Park. Take a picnic, explore the beach on Hope and by the time you head back to the cabin the tide will have turned. You'll have the tide working in your favor the whole way.

"Truly your caboose is a work of art and the visualization of dreams. It is perfectly finished and enjoyable to the extreme. Never has a retired train car come to such a noble end."
Joe & Betty McLennan
"And I thought it couldn’t get any better than their blackberry pie. But I was wrong. It’s brought to you by the same people who own the Copper Creek and make the worlds best blackberry pie in Mt. Rainier. It’s an adorable little caboose retrofitted with bunk beds and home touches, pristinely maintained and overlooking three gorgeous acres on Pirates Cove on South Puget Sound’s Hammersley Inlet. Wake in the morning and explore the hundreds of colorful starfish on the beach, grab the kayak for a float, build a fort, soak in the hot tub, explore the beauty and relax in front of an open fire. So relaxing. It’s like a one month vacation if only for a day.."
