My husband and I loved staying at Thornton House! Barb and Charlie are the perfect innkeepers, they know when to be helpful and when to give their guests privacy. Barb is a fantastic cook, we loved the abundant breakfasts with homemade biscuits and yeast waffles. The grounds are beautiful and the neighborhood is quiet, comfortable and an easy walk to... More

We just spent our one year anniversary here with Barb and Charlie and loved every minute of it. We stayed in the cottage and spent a lot of time in the garden sipping coffee and enjoying the view. In the evening we took our complimentary Shari in the garden and brought home delicious dessert from the Owl Spirit Cafe and... More

Loved staying at Thornton House. Barbara and Charlie are gracious hosts and the breakfasts are supurb. The location is within walking distance of uptown and downtown Port Townsend in a very quiet, eclectic neighbourhood. Ready to return to the comfortable home and lovely bedroom.

I rarely give a five star review. The only other stay that has earned such was over three years ago. Thornton House is a B and B, and so visitors should expect such. A Bed and Breakfast should, in my opinion, emulate a stay at a family friend's house....maybe a family friend whose son is hoping to marry your daughter... More

It's hard not to be a bit over the top about Thornton House B and B. Barbara and Charlie really have thought of everything that makes staying in a B and B a great travel experience. Things we loved: The good cheer and warmth of the owners, the savory breakfasts--especially Barbara's biscuits, the way Charlie anticipated our need for tea... More

I think it is important to share what I think with other travelers, so here is my honest opinion. I am surprised that this had gotten nothing but perfect scores. For me to give a perfect score, a place has to be extraordinary, above and beyond in some way. I found the Thornton House to be simply average. The room... More

This location, tucked away on a quiet meandering lane, means that when you walk from here, you'll see historic homes and remnants of farms that you probably wouldn't walk by on a usual stroll through Uptown. It's an easy walk to the Fountain Steps that lead down to Taylor St.and the waterfront. We enjoyed our stay in the Carriage House,... More

We stayed with Charlie and Barbara at their lovely bed and breakfast. It sets the standard for B&Bs and a lot of hotels and inns could learn from them. They get all the little details right: the amenities, the sheets, the towels, the cookies set out at night, the "early" coffee before the amazing breakfast. The house and gardens are... More

We spent one night at the Thorton House and wished it could have been one week. Barb and Charlie are the perfect hosts, and the room was exceptional. The location is very close to the main area but far enough away to be quiet. Barb's garden is magnificent and the breakfast was delicious. We will definitely stay there again the... More
