“Truly excellent!”
Reviewed 17 June 2013

My girlfriend and I stayed here in early May. We were met with a lovely and quaint property in a quiet residential area, literally a 1 minute walk from the main 'hub' of Fish Creek.
The staff were very friendly, (please forgive us 'staff', we forget your names!), and welcoming.
They are local to the area, and of course with that comes local knowledge.
The rooms are lovely, Beautifully decorated and, as anyone would expect, clean.
The breakfast was delicious, freshly prepared fruit, a strata and an absolutely delicious muffin!
Make the most of the balcony in the early evening, its a delightful spot!

Overall we can not fault this B & B.
We have and will continue to recommend this little gem of a place.

Room Tip: Im sure they are all equally as good. We stayed in Eliza.

Beautiful historic house, filled with antiques. Breakfast was wonderful. The staff was very friendly and helpful with suggestions on things to do in Door County since this was our first visit. Thorp House is in walking distance to restaurants, shops and the waterfront. Would stay here again.

Room Tip: Thorp House also has cute cottages which would be good for 4 people or more, but breakfast is not av...

We loved the Thorp House Inn! It was our very first time at a B&B.
After the hecticness of our wedding, it was such a treat to stay here and relax. Everyone was friendly and helpful! The rooms were beautiful and clean. Breakfast was satisfying! Great location! We will be back for anniversaries!

The inn is very nice. The staff are extremely friendly and helpful (they will help guide you to destinations and restaurants to try). The breakfasts are delicious and they have drinks available any time (coffee, tea, cocoa mixes and complimentary soft drinks) as well as cookies. They'll also encourage you to take some fresh fruit along for your day. The rooms are very clean and comfortable. We stayed in the Emma room which was beautiful. The inn is located within walking distance to all of the shops and restaurants in Fish Creek. Would highly recommend it!!

This inn is very well kept and clean. The staff are friendly and helpful. We liked our room except for one major thing. We were in the Everil and it had a large skylight above the bed. It had no shade so at about 4:30am you get light coming in right above you. I would not take this room again. It did have a nice balcony and great whirlpool. The breakfast is decent but the same every day. They vary the ingredients in the strata and the kind of muffins, but it is so similar. Good location, quiet. i recommend the inn.

Room Tip: Unless you are a very early riser do not take Everil

This was our second annual visit to the Thorp House Inn and Cottages and we've already booked our return trip for next year! We rented the Lark Cottage (their largest) and find the rustic charm to be just what we need for a weekend getaway. The place is very comfortable and relaxing and CLEAN. We have an 18 month old and she sleeps well in the 2nd bedroom in a pack and play between the beds. The kitchenette is perfect and just what we needed to keep some basics on hand for the little one.

We enjoyed the patio and spent some time out there relaxing and reading. The Inn is on a quiet road just a block up from the main road through Fish Creek. We can easily walk to everything and love that this trip requires no car to truly get around. We walked to restaurants, Peninsula State Park, etc.

The women at the Inn are all wonderful and so friendly. They do everything they can to make the trip as enjoyable as possible. (Including allowing us to use their dryer when my daughter's "lovie" needed a quick hand washing in the sink.) Can't wait for our next trip!

The location(walking to all of Fish Creek as well as Peninsula State Park), setting, ambiance, and the host, Melanie, made for a relaxing, wonderful weekend. Will definitely return to this fine property, we stayed in the main house which was lovely.
