Thornewood Castle

Thornewood Castle, “the house that love built,” is a historic Tudor Gothic home with a history going back over 500 years.

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 half-acre sunken English perennial garden. Swim, fish, or boat on beautiful American Lake.
