We spent one night at the Thorton House and wished it could have been one week. Barb and Charlie are the perfect hosts, and the room was exceptional. The location is very close to the main area but far enough away to be quiet. Barb's garden is magnificent and the breakfast was delicious. We will definitely stay there again the...

The Thornton House is a real find! Only two rooms in the main house and a Carriage House in the garden so you're not mingling with lots of guests. We stayed in the Carriage House in the garden and it was a weekday off-season so we were their only guests. We were served a magnificant breakfast and lingered over conversation...

Barbara and Charlie are perfect hosts! Their home tastefully combines Victorian charm with modern amenities. The bed and bedding were wonderful and I had a great night's sleep. The location is also convenient, just a few blocks to a street with stores and coffee and then not far to walk into the main part of town. Plenty of parking on...

We stayed 2 nights at Thornton House and from the moment we met Charlie & Barb, we felt like we were home. The location was perfect - quiet yet close to town with a beautiful garden created and maintained by Barb. Much to their chagrin, the deer like it too. We stayed in the cottage which was spotless and fresh...

We stayed at Thornton House in Port Townsend for our anniversary. We were very familiar with Port Townsend because we normally camp there during the Spring and Summer. However, an anniversary is special, and so is Port Townsend, so we decided to pamper ourselves and stay at a Bed and Breakfast. It is always nerve-racking to stay someplace new on...

Nicest owners on the planet! Charming Inn and tasty breakfast. Spent a couple of hours wasting time on their balcony drinking their port, eating their freshly made bake goodies and watching the clouds float by.

Charlie and Barbara are the best hosts from start to finish! We felt totally welcomed, the weather was gorgeous for our first trip to Port Townsend. We had the run of the upstairs as our friends had the other room. We sat out on the upper balcony for coffee in the morning before breakfast, the front porch in the evening...

My husband and I spent a most enjoyable and relaxing weekend at Thornton House. The sitting rooms are inviting and comfortable; you feel at ease to put your feet up and unwind. The Garden Room was homey and spacious, and we slept well in the comfy king bed. There was a variety of magazines to choose from, and a bright...

“The detached room is the one we chose and it was very quiet and very private and comfortable. I am sure the experience would be quite different in the interior space.”

“There are two rooms in the main part of the house. One has an en-suite bathroom while the other involves a walk down the hall. Both are nice, but be sure to ask which one you're getting. There is also a renovated carriage house outside. More modern but spacious.”
