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...

This was our third time visiting the castle. It had been ten years since we last stayed. This time we stayed in the Blue Room overlooking the fountains out front. The day was nice and clear. Right upon entering you are taken back into another time with all of the classic furniture,decor and beautiful craftsmanship of this castle. We love...

Lovely Castle, great view and wonderful service. The Grandview Room was great, very comfortable bed. The castle feels like you are going back in time, with some modern amenities. My only negative comment would be the room was equipped with Blu Ray DVD player and was unable to play any of the movies onsite, not a big deal though as...

Wife and I stayed here in the Presidential Suite for 2-nights and we absolutely loved everything about this place. The Castle remodel is beautiful with attempts at restoring to its original glory but still implementing some modern features. The room we stayed in was great, awesome views of the rear grounds and lake, and quite large too with several sitting...

Once in a lifetime experience. We are still in awe of the Castle and the garden. It's like stepping back in early 1900 and seeing how life might have been. Surely will be back some day. It was so much more than what we thought it would be.

We knew this would be a unice experience, but our expectations were far exceeded. We were greeted and given a brief tour, covering the history of the castle. We were encouraged to make ourselves at home and explore the castle. Such beautiful grounds and the inside of the castle is like a museum. Be prepared for lots of weddings, which...

My husband and I were married here in 2014 so this summer we decided to stay here again for a little romantic overnight getaway. The staff was great! We weren't able to check in until 9:30pm (my mother couldn't get to our house to babysit until late) and even though they had a wedding going on that night, they assured...
