1911 Gothic Tudor

Thornewood Castle

Nestled on four acres at American Lake and dotted with old growth fir trees is Thornewood Castle. Built in 1908 by Chester A. Thorne, this 27,000 square foot manor is of the Gothic Tudor style and is the only one of its kind on the west coast. Built as a single family residence, Thornewood is now a gracious country inn that has been lovingly restored.

Walk through the halls where Presidents and dignitaries walked. Presidents William Howard Taft and Theodore Roosevelt spent the night in our presidential suite. Roam the grounds and lovely 1/2 acre sunken English perennial garden, swim, fish, or boat on the beautiful American Lake.

Enjoy watching remarkable sunsets from the hand tiled lakeside patio. Medieval stained glass window insets adorn the manor as well as antique furniture and paintings. Whatever your choices, we will pamper you and make your stay with us a special memory.
We thank you for your interest in Thornewood Castle. The Castle is a private residence and located in a private neighborhood. It can be seen by a guest only when coming for overnight lodging or for a scheduled event. We cannot accept "walk up" guests.

Ghostly stuff

The King of Horror Stephen King was inexplicably drawn to this Tudor Gothic-style mansion, which served as the setting of his scripted miniseries Rose Red. Charles Thorne, one of the three founders of the port of Tacoma, spent four years building the extravagant 54-room castle, completing it in 1911. He’s said to haunt his old room, unscrewing light bulbs and making frequent appearances to guests. Thorne’s wife Anna reportedly appears in the bridal suite gazing down at the gardens, while her reflection has been spotted in a vintage mirror.
