Thornton House Bed and Breakfast
Ranked #10 of 16 Port Townsend B&B and Inns
Reviewed 15 June 2012

This location, tucked away on a quiet meandering lane, means that when you walk from here, you'll see historic homes and remnants of farms that you probably wouldn't walk by on a usual stroll through Uptown. It's an easy walk to the Fountain Steps that lead down to Taylor St.and the waterfront. We enjoyed our stay in the Carriage House, and a delicious breakfast to fuel the day's hiking and biking. Charlie and Barbara are gracious and welcoming.

Room Tip: The Carriage House has space to lock bikes on the patio outside the bedroom door.

We stayed with Charlie and Barbara at their lovely bed and breakfast. It sets the standard for B&Bs and a lot of hotels and inns could learn from them. They get all the little details right: the amenities, the sheets, the towels, the cookies set out at night, the "early" coffee before the amazing breakfast. The house and gardens are gorgeous. Best of all are the hosts. Charlie and Barbara are lovely -- gracious, quick to assist, smart, and charming. Simply, the best B&B experience we've had anywhere.

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 next time we visit Port Townsend.

Room Tip: The cottage room is outside the main house and faces the garden. The upstairs rooms have a balcony w...

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 with Charlie and Barb so it probably ended up being a 2-hour breakfast. What a fun time!

Room Tip: We thought the Carriage House was wonderful -- very private with a patio with chairs and table just...

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 the street as well.

Room Tip: There are two rooms in the main part of the house. One has an en-suite bathroom while the other inv...
