This place is absolutely goregous in every detail. Breakfast was incredible, the room and bed were absolutely incredible, the owner was extremely nice, the gardens were goregous, the lakeview was incredible. I've told everyone I know to stay here immediately. I'll definitely be coming back.

What a gorgeous and unique place to stay. Beautiful grounds, immaculate rooms, lots of history and stories to be told of the property, and last but not least: YUMMY breakfast! We stayed here as a couple to celebrate being newlyweds, as well as my wife's birthday. Lots of areas to relax and have fun: a game room with a pool...

My husband and I decided to visit the historic Thornewood castle after learning of it's history. We are both fans of Stephen King's miniseries Rose Red and the haunted castle is the main character. In reality, the castle was warm and inviting and simply breathtaking from the inside out. Exterior bricks, stained glass, stair case and paneling all traveled their...

We are so glad you enjoyed your stay at the castle. We like to think the real character of the home is nothing like it is portrayed in the movie either. Thank you for taking the time to write us such a lovely review. We hope you come and visit us again in the future.

My husband and I spent Valentine's weekend here. The rooms are elegant and comfortable, the castle is an incredible building set in a quiet, lakeside community. The employees of the establishment are courteous, attentive and friendly and not at all intrusive. A wonderful, quiet getaway. I highly recommend Thornewood Castle.

To be honest, we stayed here because of the Movie "Rose Red" . That's how we found out that the Thornewood Castle even existed. We did not know what to expect... We could not have even dreamed our stay would be as nice as it was. Between the room (we stayed in the Rose Red room of coarse) the staff...

I booked a night at Thornewood Castle as a surprise for my wife, who is a fan of the TV series Downton Abbey. The home is quite grand and elegant with a lot of history. It was a few days after Christmas, so it was still decorated for the holidays. We stayed in the Presidential Suite, where Presidents Theodore Roosevelt...

It was a great experience! The rooms have a romantic feel to them but you can still have a good time with your friends or family. We stayed in the Rose Red room and it had a great view of the lake. Also, my brother and I were able to explore the entire castle to ourselves since we were the...

I had my wedding at the Thornewood Castle in early January, and it was just beautiful! Everything I could have hoped for from a venue they provided, and I was incredibly impressed with their helpfulness, professionalism, and attentiveness to detail. I would highly recommend the Thornewood for any wedding! My husband and I also stayed overnight after our wedding at...

For my cousins wedding we stayed in the Rose Red room. The accommodations were very wonderful. The venue was perfect for the event and I am sure it will be remembered for a long time. Even with the thought that there might be ghosts present, it was not spooky. I didn't see any or feel anything. All in all good...

“You can not go wrong with the choice of any room. We got to look in all the rooms during our stay and they were all impressive. Our room had a detached private bathroom (we knew that ahead of time) and even that was fun. The bathroom that goes with the Rose Red room was so nice, bright and large. Wow!”
