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

We enjoyed that side of it and brought our copy of the movie to watch.However, in addition to the beauty of the house, gardens, view,etc. We just had a wonderful time. 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

Beautiful place, pleasant staff, highly over priced. Check in 4-6, check out 11AM. I expected to be able to tour the castle, and hear the history of the place. Nope. Here's your key. Here's your room. Breakfast is in the morning at 9. Gardens not impressive. But the entertainment room was fun. No Ghosts that we saw/heard.

This place was just what I wanted it to be . And even though your in a huge building with other people it still feels kinda magical and like your the only one there :) I love that you get your own key to come in and out and that there is no front desk makes it feel more intimate.... More

The care we had was great. Breakfast was not only beautiful but delicious and filling!! Can't wait to go back and see the grounds in warmer weather when the garden is in bloom. Very romantic from the time we arrived. Loved the privacy
