We had our wedding in the garden at Thornewood in the middle of August and it was absolutely beautiful and perfect! The natural beauty of the building and the grounds makes it so that very little decoration is required on the wedding party's part. The staff was very helpful when we required assistance, but otherwise stayed out of the way....

I loved this beautiful historical castle. The room was lovely. Service was great. Was greeted at the door and showed to our room. I wanted a tour of the castle in the morning before we left.

Wonderful stay at this Castle B&B, midway between Seattle and Olympia. A delight to explore the"secret garden" and the rest of the grounds. Our breakfast was a home cooked belly-stuffer. Delicious. Room was clean, with free snacks and drinks and a great view. Stay in a room with a water view, or the fountain view. Take selfies that will look...

Beautiful well maintained mansion expertly decorated with period furniture, but has antique plumbing. Friendly service. The grounds are manicured with stunning statuary and an exquisite formal walled garden. The local restaurant "Pacific Grill" was excellent. Nice getaway!

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...

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!
