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!

Dear Julie,

We are now back in our routine , but are still re-living the wedding
celebration through the many pictures, videos and tremendous memories.

Once more we would like to acknowledge and thank you for a fabulous
experience at Thorpewood. We had so many compliments on the beauty and
setting of the lodge, the barn and the whole venue from guests and
family members we feel compelled to pass them along to you. The
different events ran so smoothly thanks to you and your knowledgeable
staff that it made the whole celebration "effortless" as if in a
beautiful dream.

With deep appreciation and heartfelt thanks for your friendly
attentiveness, your caring touch and your expert skills on behalf of
both the Cossart and Wohlers families.

Evelyne and Benoit Cossart
