My wife and I stayed at the Thornewood Castle last Spring and had an amazing time. The grounds are just beautiful and a fabulous lake view in back. We were lucky enough to be the only guests during our stay so, for three days, we had this amazing castle all to ourselves. Plenty of lovely artwork and rooms to explore.... More

Everything about this place was amazing. Loved all the history and the overall feeling at the house. The staff is fantastic! I went during the holidays season and the Christmas decor was perfect! I really felt like I was in a family home. ❤️❤️

Great for that romantic getaway you need to have. Make sure to plan ahead though. Pleasant staff, wonderful food service in the morning brought to your room if you wish. Our booked room was not available due to construction partially blocking the view so they upgraded us to a better room for free. Quiet secluded and gated neighborhood right on... More

Beautiful place to get away from it all. Took fiancé here as a surprise and we both loved it. We went in early December so all the Christmas decorations were up. Almost every room had a tree in it!! They have a policy about leaving the doors open to the other rooms that are not booked. We explored nearly the... More

We stayed here for our 11th anniversary. The castle is amazing. We wandered the halls enjoying all the art work and the history of the structure. We watched red rose in the red rose room. The breakfast was delicious and the staff was super friendly. We look forward to bringing the whole family in the spring to enjoy the garden... More

Overall wonderful - except = The room was cleaned and stripped 20 minutes early and I was unhappy about that. We were not ready to leave. The cleaner came into the room when it was locked at 10:40am and began to clean. We had been out for a walk and took our things to the car, but when we came... More

My husband and I stayed at Thornewood for our 20th anniversary. The only reason I did not give 5 stars is because there was a wedding going on while we were there. The wedding party lasted well after 10pm, loud music and excited guests, no parking. It definitely took away from our quiet romantic experience we were hoping for, and... More
