“Beautiful and relaxing!”
Reviewed May 9, 2014

We stayed in the "Jessie" room. My husband was very skeptical about staying at a B&B, as this was our first experience. He thought it would feel weird staying at someone else's house...like we were imposing. He loved it! We hardly saw anyone, and it really felt like we had the whole house to ourselves! The breakfast in the morning was amazing! Fresh fruit, egg bake, granola, hard boil eggs and Amazing muffins! I read a book on the front porch while my husband hiked through the state park. We both loved that main street was literally one street down from the house. We parked the car and walked the entire time. The innkeepers were wonderful! They even packed us some muffins to go for the ride home!!! If you are searching for that perfect, relaxing, romantic getaway....stop searching and book your stay here! You will never forget nor regret it!

Room Tip: Our room was fantastic. We had 'Jessie' room. It had a great view of the lake and an amazing...

My husband and I spent a peaceful weekend in the Dove Cottage and it was just what we needed! The winter setting was quiet and relaxing, and the cottage was warm and cozy. The Dove Cottage was well appointed and very clean. Melanie and the staff were so friendly and inviting. We plan on asking our friends to join us during the summer- the cottages would be perfect for us to be near each other but still have privacy. We are so happy to have found such a gem in Fish Creek!

We recently stayed at the Thorpe House in the Dove Cottage for a Progressive Dinner weekend. Our cottage was charming, clean, and cozy. We went away for the weekend for R&R and really enjoyed snuggling up in front of the fireplace, watching old holiday movies on cable, and reading books. WiFi worked well too when needed. We shopped all afternoon in Fish Creek and found lots of treasures to take home. We had a great dinner at Christopher's in Ephraim on Friday night, and the Progressive Dinner on Saturday started at the Thorpe House with wonderful appetizers and champagne. Then a snowstorm blew in and we were concerned about driving home. Not a problem - the friendly proprietors were concerned about us driving on the roads too and allowed us to stay over Sunday night at a discounted rate! We've stayed here several times in the past and will definitely be back.

We had such a good time at the Thorp House Inn during one of their Progressive Dinner Weekends in 2012 that we went back again this year. These dinners are only done around the Christmas holidays. If you really want to get in the Holiday spirit I highly recommend trying this. We stayed in the Lark Cottage last year but tried the Dove Cottage this year. The owner, Melanie Camp, is in the process of updating the cottages and all we could say was "WOW". She has done a great job with the Dove Cottage. Very cozy and comfortable - perfect place for our stay there. Biggest plus is we get to bring our little dog with us to stay in the cottage. I am pretty sure this will be an annual trip for us.

Our getaway was PERFECT in every way. The Throp House is charming and delightful. Melanie and her staff could not have been more welcoming - we felt like we had become friends in just a few hours. We stayed in a cottage because we had planned a couples getaway. The couples thing fell apart because my husband required immediate hip replacement and the wife of the other couple came down with pneumonia. My daughter agreed to accompany me because I really needed to get away and recuperate from caring for my husband as he had actually broken his hip in July. It was a PERFECT getaway. Mom and daughter had the time to bond, shop, and enjoy the experience that the Throp House afforded us. The wine and cheese reception allowed us to meet other guests of the Throp House and to enjoy their company on the following evening when we attended the Progressive Dinner hosted by Throp House and While Gull Inn. The food was amazing! The evening was PERFECT! The snow we experienced while in Fish Creek was even delightful. Door County's landscapes are even move beautiful in the peaceful white blanket of winter. We stayed an extra day because we were snow bound and it was the most delightful day - no hurry, no television by choice, a roaring fire in the fireplace and meaningful time with my daughter. What a wonderful way to celebrate Christmas. Thanks to the Thorp House and the staff for making our adventure one we will remember for years to come. The Thorp House will definitely be on my list of places I want to return to in the future.

Room Tip: Cottage #5 was charming. A perfect place to call your own. Comfortable and cozy in every way. Nic...

My wife and I wanted to get out of town for a couple nights, and decided to head to Door for a winter's weekend. We wanted to stay in Fish Creek, since it's walkable, and wanted a cottage, since we have a young child who is a bit noisy these days. We also wanted a fireplace. We found everything we wanted at the Thorp House cottages. We chose the smallest cottage, Wren, which had two bedrooms, a living area with fireplace, small equipped kitchen, and small sitting area.

Everything was just about perfect. The cottage really is charming, decorated in country-style 1930s - 1940s. Bedrooms are tiny, barely enough room for a bed and dresser, but it wasn't a problem. The natural fireplace was great, and perfect for cold nights with a glass of wine, etc. Yes, you have to buy logs, but at $4 for 5 logs, we got a night's fire from just one bundle for under $5.

The location is great; we very quickly walked to the Blue Horse coffee house for breakfast, and the Bayside for dinner. The street the cottage is on is just parallel to 42, but set back, so it's a relatively private location that you'd never see if you weren't looking for it. Yet it's maybe a 3 min walk to the shops, restaurants and bars in downtown Fish Creek.

No complaints, and we really enjoyed the stay. We planning on coming back next winter.

We arrived at the Thorp inn and were charmed from the first moment. warm and inviting! The room was beautiful and the attention to detail added to the whole experience. The food was fabulous! I especially enjoyed the wine and cheese reception and getting to meet the other guests. We so enjoyed our time that we already booked for next year and are bringing my parents.

Room Tip: The Jesse room was the largest and the view from front windows was charming.
