Countdown to the Open House


ThorpeWood’s Open House is this Saturday, December 6, from 3 pm to 8 pm in our Lodge, and preparations are in full swing.  Tree decorating, decking our halls, and preparing to host you – our friends and supporters – for one of the best days of the year here at ThorpeWood!

We have lined up the musicians for the evening, and wanted to share their schedules with you:


  • 3-4 pm: Rick Hill
  • 4-5 pm:  Brett Barry
  • 5-6 pm:  Jason Schaarschmidt (piano and sing-a-long);
  • 6-7 pm:  David Selby
  • 7-8 pm: Todd Walker will wrap it all up!!

The Lodge (that has the Frontier Log Cabin Kit) will be filled with fantastic music!  If you have never experienced a musical performance at ThorpeWood, well, we can tell you that you are truly in for a treat.  So many wonderful musicians on hand – we are really looking forward to it.

And…we just heard from Santa and he is making his way from the North Pole for a visit between 4pm and 6pm! He will be helping the kids decorate their own tree as well as joining in on our first ever Sing-a-long!!

One of the highlights of this annual event has been the delicious cookie buffet that is offered during the Open House.  Last year was an incredibly wonderful sharing of homemade cookies from many of you that attended, and we look forward to even more this year! It is so fun to see what everyone is going to bring to share with the 200-300 people who walk through our door. So, although this is a FREE event, we hope you will bring your favorite sweet to share! Save room for a cup of hot cider!!

No RSVP is necessary….just come on up and enjoy some holiday cheer, a warm fire, great music and few of those homemade cookies and cider.

Can’t wait to see you all there!
