ThorpeWood is the perfect place to host your next brainstorming session, employee appreciation lunch, or corporate retreat. The potential for innovative thinking and solution seeking problem solving inspired by being immersed in our natural setting is limitless.

For starters, there is our Lodge—a green design building that exudes comfort, creativity, and inspiration. Nestled in our wooded landscape, the Lodge provides ample space for large groups, or more intimate spots for smaller needs. Whether it is a lunch on our screened-in porch during the warmth of summer or a cozy fireside meeting during the winter chill, ThorpeWood can provide the setting perfect for your group needs. There is a wonderful synergy to be found when groups engage in our spectacular natural setting—let Mountain Memories at ThorpeWood show you how to make that synergy work for you.
