From Innkeeper Deanna Robinson:
One day I said, "OK, Chester, I know you're here. Leave me a note. I'm tired of screwing in the light bulbs." The light bulbs stopped being unscrewed for two weeks, and it only happens now when I'm doing something he doesn't like or something he is especially pleased with.
Some guests have seen Anna, Chester's wife, sitting in the window seat of her room overlooking the garden. Some have claimed to see her reflection in her original mirror in the room she occupied, which is also our bridal suite.
The son-in-law of the Thornes shot himself in the gun closet of the house, and his ghost has been seen.
We had a blind lady stay on the third floor recently who claims the house is full of angels and "she should know." She said there is wonderful good and beauty in the house and a lot of love.
The Stephen King miniseries Rose Red was filmed in Thornewood Castle. The six-hour miniseries first aired in January 2002. Not based on a King book, the miniseries is a pre-accident script he was working on. They located our property through the Washington State Film Office.
