My friends and I stayed here for one night, easily could have stayed longer. There are so many beautiful things to look at, from the antique decor, to the lake views, the gardens and just the castle itself. It has an old world charm that just doesn't exist anymore. We were fortunate enough to be able to explore all the... More

We toured Washington and stayed at Thornewood Castle Inn for our anniversary. Everything was perfect, room was beautiful, gardens are splendid and the breakfast was delicious! We happened to be the only couple staying that night (lucky us)

Special time with my neice. I've always wanted to stay in the castle ever scene they made the movie Rose Red. It was wonderful I enjoyed the gardens and all the other rooms we were able to see. The glass and woodwork is amazing. I hope to come back someday with my Sister.

The castle was beautiful, we were welcomed by a couple of very friendly staff and had a very private and fun time exploring the castle and grounds. Breakfast was excellent and after checkout we were able to still explore and take photos as long as we pleased!

The room was beautiful and comfortable a quiet night sleep, I enjoyed my stay. The castles gorgeous garden and water view was great for sunset watching. My only wish was that the breakfast had not been so much extra, I would have liked to have enjoyed my room and food without happening to leave.

We went here for part of our babymoon and had the entire place completely to ourselves. Beautiful grounds and rooms. The breakfast was brought to our room and was delicious. The complimentary snacks and drinks were also a plus. Couldn't have been happier with the experience. SeaTac area's best kept secret!

We loved every minute of it! From the absolutely beautiful rooms, amazing architecture, historical value, and the really good breakfast. We loved the views and felt very welcome to stay and explore the rooms and the property. From the artwork to the decorations, we seriously didn't want to leave.......worth every penny spent!

Wonderful rooms and a great estate - a great location for our anniversary trip was provided by Thornewood. Many thanks. Wonderful breakfast, too. We hope the couple that were getting married that Friday had a service free of rain.

We had a big anniversary coming up, and I had always wanted to come to Thornewood Castle.
