ThorpeWood is a 155-acre mountain retreat hidden off a quiet mountain road, set into a forested hillside overlooking a native trout stream, and nestled 1,500 feet high in the Catoctin Mountains near Thurmont, MD—the natural resource for non-profits.

Our beautiful setting of forests, meadows, an arboretum, wetlands, and native trout streams provides a tranquil location for a unique mountain destination where individuals and groups can experience the benefits of sharing in our pristine natural resources—whether through educational or team building programs, corporate events and retreats, or weddings and other special occasions.

Adjacent to more than 18,000 acres of dramatic public parks and private preserves, ThorpeWood is secluded and feels remote. However, it is only 55 miles from Baltimore or Washington, D.C. Our natural setting is unlike any other in the region—come experience what ThorpeWood can mean to you!
