The Most Magical Mountain
From the moment we walked into Thorpewood over a year ago to search for our venue - we fell in love with the place immediately. You could feel the magic, love and warmth of the place seconds upon being there. The location and scenery was absolutely breathtaking and we just knew it was going to be the place for us to be married.
What made this place the most wonderful though was the owner Julie, who made our special day as seamless as possible. From any small problem that came up (which there were hardly any) she handled them all effortlessly. We cannot thank her and her amazing staff enough for making the happiest day of our lives so special.
If you are only just thinking about booking Thorpewood for your wedding I would highly encourage you to not give it a second thought - you will not be disappointed and will be SO happy that you made the choice!Sent on 11/26/2019

Thorpewood is Magical!
My daughter's wedding at Thorpewood was magical! The pine cathedral was the perfect outdoor setting for the ceremony and the lodge was ideal for the cocktail hour and reception. The facilities are so well kept and gorgeous. Julie and her crew are absolutely fantastic! Julie walked us through every question and idea we had then made sure our vision became a reality. We were able to relax and truly enjoy the special day knowing that everything was covered. I wish I could give more than 5 stars!Sent on 04/18/2019

A great day
Can’t say enough about how nice Thorpewood is. Our daughter’s wedding and reception were perfect. Despite an unexpected cold snap, Lexi made sure the outdoor wedding went off without a hitch, and the reception in the lodge was fantastic. Every guest we’ve spoken with since then has talked about what a great time they had. Highly recommend.Sent on 11/13/2019
