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 next time we visit Port Townsend.

Room Tip: The cottage room is outside the main house and faces the garden. The upstairs rooms have a balcony w...

The Thornton House is a real find! Only two rooms in the main house and a Carriage House in the garden so you're not mingling with lots of guests. We stayed in the Carriage House in the garden and it was a weekday off-season so we were their only guests. We were served a magnificant breakfast and lingered over conversation with Charlie and Barb so it probably ended up being a 2-hour breakfast. What a fun time!

Room Tip: We thought the Carriage House was wonderful -- very private with a patio with chairs and table just...

Barbara and Charlie are perfect hosts! Their home tastefully combines Victorian charm with modern amenities. The bed and bedding were wonderful and I had a great night's sleep. The location is also convenient, just a few blocks to a street with stores and coffee and then not far to walk into the main part of town. Plenty of parking on the street as well.

Room Tip: There are two rooms in the main part of the house. One has an en-suite bathroom while the other inv...

We stayed 2 nights at Thornton House and from the moment we met Charlie & Barb, we felt like we were home. The location was perfect - quiet yet close to town with a beautiful garden created and maintained by Barb. Much to their chagrin, the deer like it too. We stayed in the cottage which was spotless and fresh and new. The bed was sooo comfy and the blackout curtains made a great night's sleep last well into the morning. The bathroom was spacious and had all the amenities - soap, shampoo and lotion - and was also spotlessly clean. Barb's breakfasts were yummy and Charlie's coffee divine - a special Thornton House blend made especially for them by a local Port Townsend coffee brewer.

Charlie and Barb have done a beautiful job of restoring this historic Victorian. The kitchen is the most inviting and welcoming room of the house and we spent lots of time picking Charlie and Barb's brains about what it was like to relocate to Port Townsend. Their knowledge of the town and its people and their enthusiasm and love for the place was infectious. We will absolutely come back to stay and HIGHLY recommend Thornton House. Thank you for welcoming us into your family, Charlie & Barb. Can't wait to see you again!

We stayed at Thornton House in Port Townsend for our anniversary. We were very familiar with Port Townsend because we normally camp there during the Spring and Summer. However, an anniversary is special, and so is Port Townsend, so we decided to pamper ourselves and stay at a Bed and Breakfast. It is always nerve-racking to stay someplace new on such a special weekend, but we had read wonderful reviews of Thornton House. These reviews were absolutely accurate! Barb and Charlie are wonderful hosts, very welcoming and knowledgeable about the area. We got cookies every night, a wonderful treat, tea in our room in the mornings. The breakfasts were absolutely delicious. I can't say enough about the accomodations. The bed in the Carriage House was extremely comfortable, and I have to mention the "rain" shower, which was relaxing after a long hike. We now have a new tradition and are recommending Thornton House to our friends!

Room Tip: We stayed in the Carriage House, but I am sure the other rooms are just as comfortable.
