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...

We had an amazing time at the Thornwood Castle. The decor was beautiful. Nothing else like it. Was wonderful to learn all about the history of the Castle in all the photo albums available. Warm loving atmosphere. Rooms were beautiful and even if you have a detached bathroom it's only yours for the rental time. We are considering using the...

If you're looking for a different experience I would definitely recommend thornewood castle, they are modernized but still feel the history in it... great breakfast and not a lot of people were there so we get to explore the other rooms. Oh and Christmas decorations were up when we stayed there

My daughter wanted to spend the night at Thornewood Castle after completing a report on it for Washington State history class. We liked learning about the history of the building and being able to roam the house and the grounds. Our room was clean and comfortable and the breakfast was really good - probably the best scone I've ever had!...

Thornewood Castle Inn & Gardens is an absolutely beautiful spot. We felt like we spent the night in Europe and it only took us 25 minutes to get there from home. We had a lovely lunch at Marzano's Italian Restaurant in Tacoma and the evening and night in the Castle. We walked the grounds and had a picnic snack and...

“Pack light if you are on the third floor. the stairs are steep and well polished and although we were told we could bang/drag my sisters 50 pound suitcase up them it didn't feel right.”

“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!”
