Had a very relaxing stay. Enjoyed the garden, views and touring the castle itself with antique furniture and gorgeous wood carvings. Breakfast was on time and tasty with a good variety of food. Easy to locate from freeway.

I brought my daughter here for her 21st birthday. She had wanted to come here since she was 9 years old. We were looking forward to a fun mother-daughter mini-vacation and were not disappointed. The vacation was everything that we wanted and so much more! There are DVDs that you are able to borrow and we were looking for the... More

There are many things to like about my stay at Thornewood -- the siting of the castle on the lake's shore, the magnificent castle and gardens, the abundant breakfast, the friendly servers, to name a few. All these amenities go a long, long way to offset my 50s era suite without hot running water.

I would highly recommend Thornewood Castle. The rooms are exquisite and just beautifully furnished. The grounds are magnificent, and it was a treat to get to wander around them. And the breakfast was absolutely amazing, very generous and delicious!!!! This was the perfect place to spend our one day honeymoon, and we will be back, most likely for our anniversary!

Great room and a great location. Easy to find and close to other entertainment and shopping. The desing of the exterior and the interior filled with antiques and art was fascinating to explore and discover.

My mother and I were very impressed with the charm of this place. It is very beautiful. The rooms are very nice with lovely English/ European décor. I loved the paintings and room layouts. The grounds and sunken garden were also lovely. The staff is very friendly and welcoming. The only disappointment we had was our breakfast. With the exception... More

It was so relaxing! we slept great and... More

Steven King's "Rose Red" is a favorite movie of mine. I learned that some of the filming was done at Thornewood Castle, and that Thornewood Castle was also a bed and breakfast. I never forgot that. When my husband and I decided to go to Seattle for vacation, I thought how great it would be to stay at Thornewood Castle.... More

My first B&B, bed was very uncomfortable. Went for a one night stay for my wedding anniversary, was the only people staying at the manor, so we were able to tour the whole manor which was nice. Lots of decor out of place. Very hodgepodge, not 19th century manor like I was hoping for. A few rooms were very nice.... More
