Hi Kathleen, I wanted to let you know we had an incredible time at Inn Thrall. You’ve done an amazing job offering a luxurious, private and peaceful space, with so many options and opportunities to explore every kinky little desire. It was truly an amazing few days. – W & M
We wanted to follow up and thank you for sharing your Inn with us. From the time I booked our trip until we arrived, D and I were nervously excited to see what you had to offer. As you welcomed us and answered our many questions on our tour, it did not take long to relax and start to enjoy all that the Inn has to offer. From the rose petal path greeting, to the fresh flowers throughout, as well as the extremely comfortable bed and spectacular pool area, we were made to feel at home. It was fun to see D’s joy of a rose petal path be out weighed by the offerings of Libertine Hall and the inner Sanctum “tools”. Breakfast was hands down the best we have ever had at a B&B. Two days was not enough to enjoy the full effect of all you have to offer, we will absolutely be booking return visits to try the new things we did not have time for. You made our romantic get away memorable to say the least.
It took us a couple of weeks to recover, digest, process, etc our fantastic weekend at Inn Thrall, but my wife and I wanted to be sure we gave a short (anonymous) review for your website. Thanks so much.
“Thank you” does not quite say enough or cover how happy we were with our stay at Inn Thrall. You are a wonderful hostess and your BnB is just spectacular. We had an amazing time during our stay!!
To those thinking about booking, all I can say is “Do It”, you will not regret one moment of your time spent here!!
The breakfasts were outstanding and Kathleen went above and beyond, making me hot chocolate every morning. Real hot chocolate, not the powdered crap either. It was sublime and delivered in a little silver chocolate pot too. I felt so pampered!! The food was hot, delivered on time and it was all delicious.
The suite is gorgeous, the bed comfy and the grounds are glorious. The private, heated indoor pool was amazing. We plan on going back when it’s warm so we can enjoy some outdoor fun next time. The dungeon was enormous and had more equipment than we could possibly use during our 2 night stay. If you can, go for at least 3 nights! The toy room was extremely well stocked and if you can’t find what you want to play with, just ask. Kathleen made sure we had everything we needed!! Everything was clean and the toys sanitized and sealed.
I know I’m gushing but I just can’t help it, this place is a MUST! It is private, secluded, and sexy!! You don’t need to pack a thing, it’s all there and clothing is just unnecessary
Kathleen, you are a love and we look forward to coming back to stay with you again soon!!
Regards, ~Huney92 and Badgerzz
“We had the best few days at InnThrall! Kathleen was a great host. She gave a funny and very helpful tour when we arrived, and after that she was available and responsive to any questions that came up while we were there, while still being unobtrusive and making it feel very much like a private getaway. She also provided breakfasts to rival the best B&Bs we have been to. The suite was everything we could have wanted. Libertine Hall had all of the pieces we imagined for the ideal playspace and plenty of space to move around and make use of everything in the hall. Kathleen’s toy room was basically a treasure trove and we got to try out a few new things. The bedroom was so comfortable and a great space to relax in, and to top it all off, there was the private heated pool room to wind down in after Libertine Hall. We can’t wait to go back!” – Anonymous
My husband and I just spent a wonderful stay at InnThrall in April 2022. This was our first ever kinky B&B. What makes InnThrall such a gem is her attention to little details, hygienic cleanliness, personal attention, and sense of care that seems to come naturally from Kathleen.
She was available, ready to assist if needed and yet unobtrusive.
It is somewhat off the beaten path, and the last mile would be easy to miss by the average wanderer being literally just hidden away off the main roads. There are plenty of things to see and do in the local area. For ourselves, we decided to remain there as it is such a pleasant haven away from the world.
Breakfast was very tasty with a variety of selections tailored to our answers to her questions after booking. Most local food delivery services found it, though we did have to help some by phone finding the last turn.
So many small items of décor and thoughtfulness were discovered to make the experience simple, easy, and very well prepared. Even light switches are carefully marked taking out irritating guess work. The pool was such a treat and place to recover from our playtime. In fact, had there been no Libertine Hall and just the room and pool, we would have enjoyed a tranquil and romantic escape. The Hall is well kept with a uniquely spacious feeling and diverse selection of items. Her attention to detail and care towards cleanliness for items (sterilized toys in sealed bags) and areas is to a high clinical standard.
Kathleen has the passion, experience and knowledge to have crafted a virtually perfect setup for the kinky tourist. We were quite pleased and plan to return soon.

My husband and I have stayed in a lot of nice places. Inn Thrall was unlike any of them – in the BEST way. When he told me he booked a “kinky bed and breakfast”, I was skeptical that it was going to be the getaway we needed, but it turns out that his instincts were spot on. It was the perfect mix of excitement and relaxation. Depleted and deflated from recent life events when we arrived, we had no idea what a rejuvenating experience this would turn out to be, both individually and as a couple.
So many details worked together to make this an incredible experience. Here are a few examples, although this is by no means intended to be an exhaustive list:
- Kathleen’s welcome tour – She put us at ease and gave us permission to experiment without fear. (Her reminders to stay hydrated were with us throughout the weekend, as well.)
- Bedside tables stocked in a really tasteful way with items we might need (and many we didn’t need but other people might)
- Soft, comfy sheets and nice pillows
- Erotic fiction and non-fiction books on the shelf
- conversation starters like kinky truth or dare game and all types of pictures on the walls
- fresh flowers in several places
- labeled light switches
- a waterproof bluetooth speaker for the pool area
- separate area to go “shopping” for toys, complete with a basket to carry things back.
- French-press coffee delivered shortly before breakfast AND in the afternoon just because we mentioned we like afternoon coffee.
- A tea station complete with beautiful tea cups and teapot
- Plenty of soft, fluffy towels
- a variety of robes to choose from
- Delicious food – plenty of it, and a wonderful variety
- Everything being REALLY CLEAN!
- options for scented or unscented bath products
- bedroom area completely separate from the dungeon area. This definitely contributed to my ability to just relax in the bedroom area.
Thank you, thank you, thank you!! – Enthusiastic Wife
“Our innkeeper was extremely patient throughout the booking process and the time up to our stay to answer our questions and address any concerns. Upon our arrival we were greeted with a smiling, friendly innkeeper and a path of flower petals that led to our room – how romantic!
Our chambers were gorgeous, romantic, sexy – and a true escape. We were so happy during our stay. It was really everything we ever wanted. Breakfast was amazing, the indoor heated pool was a calm reprieve. Every toy and tool we wanted was there for the testing and Libertine Hall was other-wordly.
We thought we were kinky before, but this stay has fired us up even more! Truly inspirational. The innkeeper’s attention to detail was amazing and her consultation was very insightful. We very much look forward to spending more time here in the near future. I cannot recommend this place more. Just stay here! 100 stars! :)”. ~M~
We just wanted to let you know what an incredible time we had at Inn Thrall! You attended to every detail, from the delicious breakfast to the coffee service to the bed linens to the expansive selection of toys.
Your amazing touch was everywhere, and you made us perfectly comfortable, whether we were speaking to you as a married couple or as Dom and sub. The space was luxurious, beautiful, comfortable, and sexy. We were like kids in a candy store in the playroom!
We’ve never played in such an amazing space, with such privacy and freedom. Everything was clean, sanitized, and organized, and there was so much to choose from. We can’t wait to book our next adventure!
Warmly, @komplicatedKit1 – Komplicated Kitty”
We found out about Innthrall online and were too curious not to experience it for ourselves. Upon arrival we had few specific expectations but were both enthusiastic to explore. Kathleen gave a very casual and humorous tour that immediately quelled any hesitation. It was obvious that the entire space had been thoughtfully curated for the guests’ experience.
Innthrall created an environment that made it less intimidating to go outside our comfort zone and explore new things. The space felt private, held unlimited opportunities, and help was just a text away. The breakfast was amazing, we had a hard time adjusting back to preparing it ourselves.
We were encouraged to pursue “love, laughs, and lots of orgasms” and we had no issues meeting these goals. The space felt private, there were an unlimited amount of things to do, and help was always a text away.
Overall, our experience well exceeded what we had in mind. We were both surprised by how much we loved the pool, and how much of a relaxing vacation it was. We left in great spirits, figuring out how we could find our way back, and a list of things we both wanted to incorporate more into our lives.
We’ve been trying for at least a week to describe our time at InnThrall! Arriving onto the property is breathtaking. It starts with the rose petals that line the way to entrance.
Kathleen met us outside as we arrived, and using the latest precautions, started the tour of what would be our home for the next few days. First off was the pool, perfectly heated and romantically lit with all the room you need to swim or lounge. We were then ushered into The Inner Sanctum.
It was luxuriously appointed from the soaps in the bathroom, to the kitchen furnishings, to the bed and linens. Everything is carefully chosen for comfort, design, and sensuality. There’s a large fireplace, bookshelves with selected texts for inspiration, and a sound system.
With the bedchamber tour complete, we were introduced to Libertine Hall!
This was our first time in an organized playspace, it was almost sensory overload. We were given an overview of every piece of furniture and equipment, as well as the armoires and cabinets full of the latest gear. All of it individually sanitized and organized. There is every piece of gear imaginable to run wild with your desires. Finally, we were shown the “airlock chamber”, where the remainder of the toys and gear are kept, as well as where breakfast is delivered. We then bid Kathleen adieu and retired back to the Inner Sanctum.
And what a breakfast it is! The food that is prepared for you easily rivals any fine restaurant. There’s plenty of it and many delicious items. We had a special food request and it was perfectly honored. The attention to detail shown throughout the spaces carries over to the dishes and silverware as well.
Libertine Hall is great for everyone from those just dipping their toes into BDSM and wanting to explore their fantasies to experienced practitioners. The safety and sanitation are top-notch, and the privacy can’t be beat. We were able to spend our time there reconnecting with each other and exploring many things we had wanted to try (and some we had never
We can’t say enough good things about InnThrall. Kathleen has built a wonderful space for romance, exploration, sensuality, or whatever you can dream up! She is an absolutely
gracious host dedicated to her customers and whatever they may need during their stay. Now all we need to figure out is when we’re going back!!
Thank you for such a wonderful place!
My fiancé surprised me with Valentine’s weekend at Innthrall. It’s hard to put into words what a magical experience we had. Kathleen was an incredible host, accommodating and nonjudgmental. She designed Innthrall with everything in mind. Though she checked in daily to make sure we had everything we needed, we did not need to take her up on the offer because the suite is fully loaded.
The walkway was covered in rose petals and the mini fridge was stocked with regular water, sparkling flavored water, Gatorade, and juice. The type of amenities you would expect for an up-charge come standard here. The French press coffee and breakfast were wonderful.
The suite itself was immaculately clean, and no detail was missing. I need to remember to ask Kathleen what mattress is on the gorgeous canopy bed because I slept amazingly, and the sore neck I usually wake up with was no where to be found.
The suite is stocked with tons of towels and other goodies you need for fun. We also enjoyed perusing the sex positive literature on the shelves. The indoor heated pool was SO much fun. We took a nice little swim everyday.
Of course, the star of the suite is Libertine Hall. Wow. Kathleen really did think of everything you could possibly need for a fun and safe experience.
Having a private and safe space with all our needs gave us an opportunity to explore in ways we can’t do at home with kiddos. My partner and I not only connected physically, but we also had a beautiful and emotional experience together.
We are looking forward to returning next year during spring/summer to see the grounds in a new light. Much thought has obviously gone into making this a contactless and safe environment in the wake of covid. My fiancé and are very particular with traveling right now, but Innthrall absolutely met our standards. If you’re considering Innthrall, the experience is well worth the investment and you will not be disappointed. Many thanks to Kathleen for her hospitality and creating such an incredibly sex positive space to share with the world.

Inn Thrall made for the most magical honeymoon we could have dreamed of. The beautiful estate was thoughtfully decorated, and brought us to a “magic bubble”, where we were free to be ourselves and safe to explore our limits.
Kathleen made for an amazing caretaker, helping to ensure our magic wasn’t tainted by the real world as much as possible. Her lovely, shining personality instantly put us at ease and she did a fantastic job at taking the “awkward” out of our initial arrival. Plus, the breakfasts were so yummy and so needed. Big, beautiful breakfast spreads that were more than filling and equally nutritious.
We spent our four nights in the inn milling about between the amazing bed (which we desperately wished we could have taken home, it was so comfy!), the glorious pool, and the delightful dungeon. What Kathleen is doing with this inn is truly a magical gift to any couples (or more!) who want to explore with freedom, acceptance, and safety.
We particular enjoyed the use of the x-cross, and were genuinely impressed with the endless options for toys and devices to spice up the night. It’s safe to say we left with a lot of inspiration on what to add to our own, at home, dark and lovely times. We can easily say this was truly a joyful, love filled, and magical honeymoon.
Kathleen, thank you so much for everything you did to give us such an amazing time. We could never express in words how absolutely, perfectly divine you and your home are.
With so much love,
– Monica and Stephen THE HONEYMOONERS
It has taken us a week to let our experiences from last weekend really sink in. It was truly magical and a getaway we will never forget. Honestly, I have not stopped thinking about what a great time we had, and our only regret is not booking a longer stay. You have really thought of everything to ensure your guests have what they need for an amazing time.
Being new to this arena, your tour was exactly what we needed to set the mood and help us be brave enough to explore. The fabulous space you have created for this experience makes sure your guests are comfortable to play with everything and discover new pleasures. We spent hours exploring your extensive collection and could have continued for days. Two nights was just not enough time to perfect our practice with them all.
Between our sessions in Libertine Hall, we could recover, rest and hydrate in the rest of the amazing suite. The bed was a pleasure and sets a tone for the space. The silky fabrics and jewel tones throughout the room create a mood that feels opulent. But for us, I cannot put into words how luxurious it felt to have our own, private, indoor, heated enormous pool all to ourselves. We spent almost as much time in the pool as we did in the rest of the suite.
I sincerely have to thank you for creating this space for others to experience and explore. We may never have had a chance to do anything like this, and now we cannot wait to incorporate some of these things into our lives. We are also already trying to figure out when we can come back again. You made this stay so convenient and easy. Everything we needed was at our fingertips. Whether it was your fun toys and machines, splash pads and safety scissors, or simply things like drinks, beautiful chocolates or how painless and effortless it was to communicate with you.
With gratitude, A. & R. Miller
This was by far the most beautiful, sensual, romantic, sexy weekend we’ve ever had- all rolled into one!
Kathleen was such a gracious host. We’ve never done anything like this, but she made us feel so comfortable. Her energy is warm, welcoming, slightly mysterious (wink), sexy and fun. We instantly felt completely open with her.
The place…. words can’t describe it. But I’ll do my best. Be prepared to be blown away!
The level of detail and thoughtfulness that went into everything is nothing I’ve ever seen. Between the beautiful grounds, warm indoor pool with a view of the stars, her room full of toys and gadgets to explore! The sexy yet extremely beautiful and romantic bedroom with a glowing fireplace, cozy canopy bed (p.s. We came home and immediately bought a canopy bed after our experience! 😉 And last but not least the sexy dungeon! With every “contraption” you can think of! Lol! We had such a fun time exploring! As great as all this sounds, none of it would be useful or pleasurable if it wasn’t in sanitary conditions in “normal” times let alone during a pandemic. Well, Kathleen really went above and beyond to ensure safe, sanitary and sterilized environment. And this is coming from 2 ppl who are are slight germaphobes! We felt completely free and open!
And if ALL of that wasn’t enough, Kathleen provided the YUMMIEST breakfast- again with so much thoughtfulness! It’s very evident this is her approach to everything she does! This will definitely be something we do for ourselves at least once a year! It really reset our relationship! Like I told Kathleen when we left, I’ve never been SO relaxed and SO exhausted at the same time!
We look forward to our return. Thank you again, Kathleen for being the BEST host we’ve ever experienced! And thank you for putting so much time, love, energy, money and thoughtfulness into creating a beautiful, safe, fun place for couples to explore, enhance and connect. I’m sure I’m not alone when I say: you are a true gift to so many!
Look forward to our next trip! Take good care! – Anita & Lerone xoxo
We wanted to take some time and write about our amazing experience at InnThrall. For some background we are a married couple with relatively little experience in the formal kink scene. Highlights of our lifestyle prior to our stay at InnThrall consisted of our bedroom, trips to Lotus Blooms in the DC Area, and an outing to the DC Fetish Ball. This year being a milestone anniversary we wanted to try something new, and InnThrall didn’t disappoint.
Our first contact with our Innkeeper Kathleen was prompt, professional, and honestly not the slightest bit awkward. Right from the first emails we exchanged Kathleen was accommodating and comforting. We reserved in late 2020 and had the luck of receiving the promotion for a third night added to our stay which in hindsight was absolutely necessary. Kathleen was professional about getting the deposit straightened out and checking in with us as our booking date approached. As we were getting a healthy mix of anticipation and nervousness, bearing in mind we’d never even contemplated booking a kinky bed and breakfast before, Kathleen messaged us 7 days prior to arrange our arrival from providing the address to coordinating our breakfast preferences. We can’t emphasize enough that breakfast is a very important part of this experience and you don’t want to miss it.
On our travel day we arrived just as the sun was going down and Kathleen met us at the driveway masked with a thermometer in hand for a COVID screening. This gave us a sense of comfort knowing things were being taken seriously and that the health of her guests was tantamount to the experience. She also had an extension cord ready for our EV, which she certainly didn’t have to do. As we began our tour of our kinky home for the next three nights we were greeted by a sprinkling of rose petals to the door.
As we entered we were amazed at all that was included in our reservation from the amazing indoor heated pool, to the ultra comfortable and expertly appointed bedroom, kitchenette, and huge bathroom. Then was our first time in an actual furnished playspace, and oh my goodness the toys that were available to explore. We literally felt like Alice falling into Wonderland. Little did we know how true that sentiment would feel three days later.
At this point we were excited but also a bit worn for weather from the trip. We decided to order in and found that the Inn was served by quite a selection on doordash, including a Sushi place. So if you’re wondering about food in the area, the delivery options abound and there are some wonderful restaurants in West Reading. The suite was furnished well for aftercare, with comfortable blankets and places to cuddle abound. The pool also made for a wonderful place to be together and calmly float around and let the stress melt away.
Back to Wonderland, the play space offers all the furniture and toys one would need and plenty to explore. The suspension rig was a godsend, the furniture is quality, and the playspace/suite includes a bluetooth sound system throughout. The space is also quite large, whether it was in Libertine Hall or around the pool deck, we had plenty of space for PonyNiamh to prance. The suite includes plenty of soft warm blankets and comfy spots for aftercare, and the pool is heated and very relaxing. We are happy to have experienced many firsts at InnThrall.
Honestly we had come to try everything we couldn’t at home and InnThrall didn’t disappoint. Our play reached a new height, our relationship alongside it. We hope to make InnThrall a regular getaway in the future particularly to take advantage of the beautiful outdoor space in the warmer weather. Again we can’t wait to come back and I think every state should have an InnThrall. It’s a wonderful idea, excellently executed, and truly unique. When you finally have to come back to default life you’ll never be the same, like Alice having just woken from a Dream.

The drive from New York to Reading, PA was about 3 hours and ended, going up a narrow winding road to the top and our home for the weekend where we were greeted by our hostess for a tour of the facilities.
She must have known my preferences as had me as soon as we walked in and discovered the massive, private!! pool!. I love water and latex and was ready to leap in immediately! However I was patient and allowed our gracious hostess to complete her tour. Our living quarters were attached and appointed with a massive bathroom, an intimate dining area, down a few stairs to our bedroom. With my very luxurious, 4 poster, curtained bed with a locking cage at it’s foot where my slave poindexter spent a considerably more comfortable night than usual.
There was also a small “smoking room” off to the side and an exterior door leading into the woods where I planned to play. Down another flight of stairs to….. our own! 800 square foot dungeon with various and assorted (well equipped with implements sanitized and wrapped in cello).
Last on our tour was the airlock chamber where we were to put any toys used and to pick up our breakfast and anything else we might be in need of. (We communicated by text so until we left this would be the last time we saw each other.) Our hostess left after assuring us of their air filtration system and remarked that we could play anywhere, do anything, in any state and not to worry as there was no one to see us and no one to hear any screams.
Immediately I had poindexter unpack the inflatable straight jackets as I waited in the pool, where the remainder of the afternoon was spent with me using him as my pool toy.
That evening we discovered chocolate truffles as a good night treat. Breakfast the following morning was incredible! So well presented, delicious and abundant! We chose from scrambled eggs, rosemary potatoes, bacon, sausage, fresh fruit with cinnamon, yogurt with granola and more fruit and lots of delicious coffee. After that we needed to lie about as the food digested before playing. (By lie about I mean get back into the pool!)
I felt only slightly guilty not playing in the dungeon but living in the city it is rare that I can avail myself of outdoor play. So with my massive bag of toys we headed to the gazebo where I secured my slave and tormented him at length until I received a text alerting me to sustenance should it be needed could be found in the airlock. I released poindexter and sent him to pick up the bowl of beautiful fruits and champagne with flutes, which I enjoyed in the afternoon sun.
Time to leave came much too soon but as we did I was introduced (the only thing I had thought would improve my stay) the ambassador cat!
I highly recommend this! It’s perfect for that special getaway, can easily and comfortably house more than 2, and for those planning on filming or doing photo shoots there are so many wonderful locations.
Hear about The Baroness’ stay from the view of slave pointdexter below!
This week I had the distinct pleasure of accompanying The Baroness to a new S&M BnB, InnThrall. That’s right— a luxurious Bed n Breakfast that caters to the BDSM crowd. About 2 1/2 hours from NYC (three hours by the scenic route) there lies in the hills of eastern Pennsylvania a very posh Bed and Breakfast that comes with a private indoor pool, a large and well equipped dungeon, and lovely owners who understand the needs and desires of their clientele. Upon our 4 o’clock arrival we were met by the lovely Kathleen and shown our indoor pool, and adjoining suite, consisting of a majestic fit-for-a-queen Cal King-sized canopy bed, and a wooden slave’s cage— to be either slept on, or in. Of course I would be sleeping inside.
After inspecting the accommodations, we were directed down a flight of stairs to a cavernous and incredibly well-stocked dungeon. There was a Saint Andrews Cross, rigging for suspension, and another square slave cage. The dungeon was big enough to accommodate a decent party, but we were just two.
Fortunately The Baroness had brought her latex inflatable straight jackets. Mixing latex and water is one of The Baroness’ favorite activities. After inflating it was into the pool for us. Latex and water is a natural match, one that is safe, buoyant, and ultimately a hoot!
After swimming up a storm The Baroness was ready to play. Although the huge dungeon was safe, well ventilated, and empty as well, The Baroness wanted to play outside in a small gazebo. The area is quiet and secluded so no problem going outside to play. Also InnThrall had supplied us with a sparkling Moscato and a fruit bowl to bring outside with our shackles, cuffs, and toys.
After a day of swimming and playing we were ready for dinner. Plenty of nice restaurants within a 15 minute drive. We selected one and were not disappointed. In the morning we were treated to a really special breakfast: eggs, sausage, bacon, rosemary potatoes, fruit cup along with yogurt and fruit, lots of coffee and orange juice.
For a private, luxurious, and unforgettable getaway, InnThrall is an unbeatable destination!

Our experience at InnThrall exceeded all of our expectations. Kathleen was very patient while we booked our reservation, and then through the scheduling process. My play partner & I had different schedules, and she was so accommodating.
When I arrived the evening of my reservation, Kathleen greeted me and gave me a tour of the space. There was so much to take in, from the nicely-furnished rooms to the overwhelming abundance of toys & furniture available for play in Libertine Hall. My play partner especially appreciated the dimly-lit, welcoming suite.
On the first morning of our stay, we were presented with a wonderful breakfast. It was so much food that we couldn’t even finish it all, but we greatly appreciated the beauty of the presentation & the fuel for our day’s activities. We thoroughly enjoyed the moody ambiance of the InnThrall Suite & all of its accommodations. On the second day, we were lucky enough to spend some time in Libertine Hall. I hadn’t previously grasped the scope of toys available for play, and I was thrilled to find some new things to try out. I could play in Libertine Hall for months & still not try out everything available. We were in heaven in this peaceful, sensual space.
We really appreciated how there was someone always there & available for us to ask questions. Kathleen has mastered the art of being present & helpful while being unobtrusive. Whether you’re looking to explore your kinky side for the first time or are eager to deepen your play with an immersive experience, I highly recommend InnThrall.

“This place is amazing! Tons of options to play and explore but also comfortable and inviting for those intimate moments between orgasms to just connect. This was everything we needed and more we didn’t even realize we were missing. Thank you so much!!!”
“My stay at the Inn brought me closer to my partner. Allowed us to connect on a deeper level. We had to be alone together and use our words, bodies, and energy without a tv. We know now that we are in love, can be together in silence and are looking forward to what the future has in store for us. InnThrall has become a part of our relationship! *It will be our annual Bday thing FOR SURE!”
“I have always loved throwing parties. I was fortunate enough to have a partner of 20 years who also enjoyed entertaining, and during that time we had dozens of memorable gatherings with family, friends, and friends-to-be. But, now I live alone in a one bedroom apartment in a building with no social space, so I haven’t been able to host parties for the past few years.
Fortunately, I heard through our community of InnThrall, located on the North side of Seattle, about 20 minutes from downtown. As a strictly “Kinky Bed & Breakfast,” it has a beautiful Suite for rent, with a Boudoir with several toys and play areas, a Sitting Room with comfortable seats and erotica to browse, and a private Bathroom. The entire Suite is quite well appointed with kinky toys, books, and furniture, but there is also the upstairs “Libertine Hall” available for rental. This is where my party centered, and both me and my guests were delighted that this Hall was available to us for the night!
There are so many good things to say about the space that I don’t want to forget the one aspect of the rental experience that I found fundamental to hosting a successful party there – innkeeper Kathleen Ashford (yes, her name is used w/ her permission, as it is published on the Inn’s website at http://innthrall.com). She has put together a space that is safe, secure, sex-positive, and welcoming for anyone’s kink. Her Inn has been open for a couple of years now, and is starting to pick up a regular clientele. Kathleen is a longtime kinkster and member of the Seattle kink community, and knows how to provide a Risk Aware Consensual Kink environment like any right-thinking kinkster does.
The website lists many of the pieces of equipment and other deviant accoutrements throughout both the Boudoir and the Libertine Hall, but what it doesn’t really give a good feel for is the atmosphere that Kathleen has sewn into her labor of love that is Inn Thrall. There is more kinky paraphernalia than can be used at one time, even with 20+ people in the room, but the space is big enough to easily move the big pieces around for quick use. There are numerous cabinets housing every type of kink gear imaginable (and I’m not really exaggerating too much when I say *every*). There is ample comfortable seating arrangements, as well as a hot tub outside — Kathleen describes that “it fits six people comfortably… and 10 people *more* comfortably!”
I was able to negotiate with Kathleen to cater foods for my guests; while it is not part of her listed services, the vision I presented her for my party was something for which she felt comfortable going the extra mile. We discussed very general menu items and costs, and after that I trusted her to do the magic. And magic it was! The “heavy hors d’oeuvres” that she served were both plentiful and scrumptious. And, it being my birthday celebration, she was also able to have an amazing cake made and served up to my guests. There was EVERYTHING needed to have a successful party; food, drink, music, toys, space… the whole thing. And most of all, a kinky atmosphere rivaled by few places I’ve visited.
After our party, my Miss and i retired to the Boudoir and both quickly fell into a deep sleep in the comfort of the space. In the morning Kathleen had coffee available early in the Sitting Room, followed by a delicious breakfast of French Toast, fruit, and bacon.
While I likely asked for more than most would hosting a party there, Kathleen was able to accommodate and deliver beyond my expectations. Inn Thrall is a wonderful place for any Kinkster to visit and/or serve as a venue for the hosting of a phenomenal play party.”
“Your Inn now holds a very special place in my heart, right up there with my Miss’ dungeon and den. It was comfortable, kinky, well appointed, and a great environment to have a wicked party. Your hospitality and skill at catering is beyond my wildest expectations, and I truly don’t see how you can do it!”
“Dearest Kathleen, words cannot express how overjoyed and happy that you were part of our ceremony. Without a doubt, it was the best and most meaningful part of our stay. The room itself was elegant and tasteful; we really appreciated how helpful, accepting and attentive you were, even to the point of lending us your playlist. You were exceptionally accommodating. I’d write more but I’m at the end of the paper 🙂 “
“My husband and I had an incredible night at InnThrall. The Suite is spacious, beautiful, comfortable and well-appointed. I think we were both a little nervous going in, but Kathleen helped us feel at home and completely comfortable. We’ve only explored B&D at home in a limited capacity (because noise wakes up the kid, you know) and this space was perfect for us to cut loose a little, try a couple new things and make some noise together. It was definitely an inspiring date night. We hope to come back again!”
“Dear Kathleen, I wanted to again let you know how much we enjoyed ourselves Saturday night and thank you for being so accommodating. It was a pleasure meeting you. We hope to have the opportunity to visit again soon.”
“A big, big, recommendation for anyone who wants to try an exotic and luxurious romantic B&B getaway in the Seattle environs — Inn Thrall. Just got out of the huge, secluded outdoor hot tub and had a wonderful time talking with our hostess. It’s kink-friendly & well worth every dollar if you’re looking for a place to take someone special. Or a well-equipped place to do something special. Honestly though, I may come here all by myself someday just because everything’s so beautiful and comfortable. :-)”
“It was a nice cool retreat for the hot summer….There were so many options I kept noticing something new. A long stay would be required to truly indulge in them all and would be worth the time spent in such pursuits. The hostess was warm and inviting. She provided plenty of privacy and was quick to provide any assistance if needed.”
“We loved the obvious care and dedication put into each and every detail. The mirror at waist height and handles placed just so are genius. The hostess is polite and kind. She genuinely cares that her guests have the best experience. We wouldn’t have thought to stay at InnThrall had we not won the gift card (fundraiser raffle prize), because we don’t consider ourselves very hard players. Aside from light rope roughly twice a year I’d say we’re quite vanilla. InnThrall was SO MUCH FUN for us! You don’t have to be into whips and chains to appreciate a private sexy getaway where anything you want to do is possible (even if it’s skinny dipping). I’d encourage folks of all kinks and kinky-nesses to stay here. Thank you, Kathleen!”
“We had such a sexy, fun, lovely experience. Romantic fires, delicious coffee, so many toys! With such a big-hearted Hostess”
“We recently rented Inn Thrall’s Libertine Hall and were amazed at the selection of toys and various equipment. If you want to explore and try new things, this is a great place. The room was large and inviting. She provided water, towels, and a place to shower. The hostess was friendly and gracious with her time. answering all of our questions about the various items available. —-Thanks again! I’m sure we’ll be back :)”
“I heard about Inn Thrall on social media and was immediately intrigued. My partner loves getaway stays in hotels and B&B’s, and this one spoke to many of our lifestyle and relationship interests. I wasn’t sure what to expect but the website made the place look very enticing.
I emailed Kathleen and she responded right away. She was very friendly and answered all my questions – even important ones I hadn’t thought to ask! Sometimes you just get a good vibe about someone right from the start. That’s how I immediately felt about Kathleen. I went ahead and booked the suite for a day a few months out. Although InnThrall offers a dungeon rental as well, the suite looked well appointed and I didn’t think my partner and I would need the extra space.
The location isn’t as remote as I thought. In fact, the neighborhood is quietly suburban – but when you go inside it’s like the outside world falls away. (It just goes to show that you never know what’s in your neighbor’s basement.)
The rooms are sumptuous without being cheesy. The decor gives a classy continental feel but never slides into crass indulgence. If I needed to choose a word for the suite, it would be “elegant.” It’s not snobbish or off-putting – I felt very comfortable. A positive energy permeates the building. It’s very evident that Kathleen has put a lot of thought, a lot of work, and a lot of love into InnThrall.
The suite is amazing. You get a comfy private lounge as well as a bathroom and a bedroom. The bedroom itself is large and well appointed, with elegant touches like candles and a fireplace and a luxurious bed with plenty of pillows and tasteful bedding. And the toys! A selection of safer sex supplies; a small cage; wall hardpoints; tie points on the bed (which also has a convenient latticed metal frame); a large variety of impact toys; and a whole cabinet of restraints such as cuffs and collars. All are available for use and all are included with the suite. There is also a shelf of intimate items available for sale.
The ambience of InnThrall is suitable for everything from “vanilla with sprinkles” to full on intense BDSM. My partner and I were encouraged towards some exploration, and had several intense encounters there. It’s a comfortable space to play as hard or as soft as you want.
There’s not just the suite. The location offers a private deck and a secluded hot tub. We very much enjoyed both!
Kathleen is a gracious and attentive hostess. We both felt so welcome, like old friends she was putting up for the night. She was always available if we needed anything, but was not nosy or intrusive. Kathleen consistently goes above and beyond to see to your comfort. She provided spa water when we first arrived and left a carafe of warm coffee out for us. She even had half and half available, which I think was a personal touch for us. Breakfast was amazing: strawberry french toast, both bacon and sausage, coffee, juice, and a bowl of yoghurt with fruit.
I also booked a one hour consultation for myself and my partner. Kathleen is very knowledgeable about polyamorous and/or kinky relationships. She provided a safe space to talk, and helpful insights. I left with increased confidence, and having learned more about my partner.
The whole experience was amazing! Everything from the house to the Hostess far exceeded my expectations. It was with great reluctance that we bid adieu – but actually, it was au revoir. We will definitely return. It will take many, many more visits to explore all the suite’s possibilities, and I could happily stay there for days on end. InnThrall feels like a second home, one right out of my fantasies.
We had a fantastic time and can’t wait to go back. Thank you, Kathleen ” -Sir Panda
