A World-Class Historic Inn & Gardens

As one of the few genuine private castles in the United States, Thornewood is not only a world-class historic site – it's also our home, a magnificent location for Seattle/Tacoma weddings and receptions, and the most romantic bed & breakfast in Washington State. 

Where is Thornewood Castle?

Thornewood Castle is located on the shore of American Lake in Lakewood, WA - 12 miles south of Tacoma and 42 miles south of Seattle in Washington State, USA.

Thornewood Wedding Venue (Seattle-Tacoma)

Weddings at the castle are breathtaking. With both outdoor and indoor venue options, stunning scenery, architecture and statuary for photos, and on-site staff to assist you, we love helping couples create their dream wedding.
