“Ideal Weekend getaway for two”
Reviewed 30 April 2012

When you think of a Door County BEd and Breakfast, the Thorp House Inn and Cottages is it! Located just off the main strip in Fish Creek, you are away from the hustle and bustle, but walking distance to everything in town. We stayed in Cottage #3, the Dove and it was perfect for two. There was a wood burning fireplace that was a perfect way to end our evenings while playing cards (supplied by the innkeeper). The cottage had a tiny room with 2 bunk beds which we did not use, but would be perfect for 2 small kids. All of the cottages are located around the main house, but they are far enough from one another to have privacy. Firewood is $4.00, but the first Duraflame log is free. We just used the Dura flame log each night and it was great for keeping us warm. There are extra blankets so you can cozy up on the couch. There is also a TV, but we did not turn it on once (: In the bathroom there were two lavendar soaps that smelled wonderfully. A nice touch. As another reveiwer mentioned, bring your own bath towels. A bath mat and a hair dryer are provided.

I wold strongly recommend this B and B to anyone looking for a weekend (or week!) escape. Hope to come back soon.

My wife and I just returned from a fun relaxing weekend in Door County WI. We spent 2 nights at the Thorp House Inn. The house is perhaps 100 years old and filled with fine antiques. Melanie the innkeeper is a delightful host and good conversationalist. Our room, Jessie was huge with a 4 poster bed (super comfortable if you have a bad back) and gas fireplace with a pretty good view of Green Bay. It was full of turn of the century antiques, fireplace and Jacuzzi. In the morning a wood burning fireplace greeted us. A local French chef prepares some of the breakfast entrees. Bring a book to enjoy in the library or by the fire in the connected sitting room with the wood burning fireplace. Lots of hot coffee and cookies anytime Just 1 block from Fish Creek so just enjoy. Be sure to eat at Donny's at the Glidden Lodge in Bailey's Harbor or the English Inn in Fish Creek. Old time Wisconsin Supper Clubs with real wood fireplaces, great seafood and great Old Fashions. We live in Wisconsin and love Wisconsin and being up North but then who wouldn't.

Room Tip: All the rooms are excellent Some have Jacuzzi, some fireplaces some both

My wife and I spent a quick weekend up in Door County (just a three hour drive from Milwaukee) and decided to stay at the Thorp House Inn. Melanie and her staff aim to please in every aspect of the visit. Room "Maria" fit our needs perfectly and the breakfast was fantastic each morning... a great way to start the day! Looking forward to another stay in the future.

With the unseasonably warm temperatures this past 2011/12 Winter has provided us and the record heat during the last week of of winter ... it was just a requirement to book a place that we could get out and do some hiking & relaxing.

Thorp House Inn & Cottages fit the bill "Perfect"!

The Quail Cottage with the actual fireplace and two rooms was quaint, warm & inviting for us with the two daughters. Stay in for the day or head out to the shops, restaurants or the neighboring Peninsula State Park. Other than a number of specialty shops being closed yet for the season ... there was more than plenty of shopping for all. Most restaurants were open and all welcomed us with smiles. Other than a few others out and about ... there were no crowds to speak of.

Having lived in NE Wisconsin for a better part of 30+ years ... have never stayed actually up on the Door County Peninsula North of Sturgeon Bay. That will change now in years to come.

If you don't find a place available here ... it is still a "Must See" when you walk Fish Creek. Do take the time to check Thorp House Inn & Cottages for future escapes.

Sincerely,
Brian

The hip new owner suggested Alexander's for dinner where we were so comfortable at the bar chatting with Jill that we had our dinner right there.

The view over the harbor and bay is perfect.

We will stay at Thorp House again soon and will have trouble choosing between the lovely cottages and the beautifully restored rooms of the Inn.

This was our first vacation together & Thorp House Inn was the PERFECT choice! We enjoyed the elegantly decorated room & comfortable accomodations. An in-room fireplace & large spa-tub was very romatic. Service was excellent, breakfast was delicious, rooms were clean & the Door Co. community was extremely welcoming! Dining & activities in the local area kept us entertained. We traveled during the Holiday season, so we enjoyed the quite town to ourselves.
