First off, Charles and Barbara are the nicest, kindest people you'll ever meet. We felt so incredibly welcome. And we were completely spoiled by the wonderful breakfast every morning. Barbara is a fantastic cook and the table was always beautifully set. The rooms were immaculate, beautifully decorated and very comfortable. We stayed in one of the upstairs rooms the first night and then moved to the private cottage in the back for the rest of our trip.

There are quite a few different sitting areas throughout the house and garden to choose from and the garden is just as beautiful as the house. It was clear to us that the B&B is a labor of love and it's evident in everything they do. They go above and beyond to make guests feel welcome and comfortable. I can't say enough about what a wonderful experience our stay was. We will definitely be back!

My wife and I were looking for a last-minute getaway for the 4th of July weekend. Thornton House had a room available and I'm glad they did! We stayed in the Garden Room and it was perfect. Every morning the coffee was sitting outside our door just waiting for us to enjoy on the balcony in the morning sun. The bathroom is down the hall which sounds like a minus, but I assure you that it was never an issue.

The breakfasts were delicious! Our first morning we ate a rainbow chard frittata which was fabulous. The conversation around the table was great and the hosts are amazing. They were warm, friendly and helped us plan some excursions. We are very busy with work and don't take a lot of time off. Thornton House took us to 100% relaxation immediately and it was a wonderful getaway - We'll definitely be going back!

Details-

The bed was VERY comfortable and the sheets were high thread-count

The room and bathroom was IMMACULATELY CLEAN

The location is about a 10 minute walk to Water Street and a 2 minute walk from the Farmer's Market.

People will say hello to you on their morning walks from the street when you're sipping coffee on the deck. It's very friendly there.

There will be tasty cookies and port waiting for you when you are ready for bed!

We visited Thornton House for just one night and had a wonderful time. The hosts are incredibly friendly, but not too much so. The grounds were beautiful and our room was very nice. We were in the Garden Room and it was a nice size room, nicely done, but not too frilly in an overly Victorian sort of way. The private bathroom was just down the hall, recently redone, modern and really lovely. The breakfast was delicious and they accomodated my gluten intolerance beautifully. She even made special gluten-free muffins that were better than any I've ever had - seriously. We'd stay there again any time we're headed to Port Townsend.

I couldn't agree more with the other reviewers. We stayed in the Carriage House and it was beyond comfortable, quiet and private. Barbara's breakfasts were fabulous (I still want that waffle recipe) and Charlie was so much fun to chat with. They truly made us feel completely welcome and like one of the family. Very relaxing!

Thornton House is a simply wonderful B&B that will make you want to be sure to include Port Townsend, and Thornton House, into any future plans you have for a return visit to the Olympic Peninsula area. One stay is not enough. Charlie and Barbara are gracious people who make you feel right at home in their home, and the breakfasts they create in their large kitchen are just wonderful too. We couldn't have asked for a better place to stay during our too short visit to Port Townsend.
