Step back in time in this lovely turn of the century B&B. Beautifully decorated and maintained. Great staff. Walking distance to most things in Fish Creek. Highly recommend.

Beautiful rooms, fabulous breakfast, great house with outstanding service. Not one thing I could say to improve our 3 day stay. The location is great. One block off Main Street so we could walk everywhere down town and to harbor. Great value.

This was my third stay at the cottages. Host welcoming as always and cottage delightful. Highly recommended! I did not use on-site dining, so cannot comment on that, but my guess based on the overall excellence of this B&B is that the food at the Inn is wonderful.

I loved the house. Very authentic and homey feel. Everyone was very nice. The only thing I would change is in the room we stayed in had skylights and in the morning the sun was so bright at 6am. Could not sleep in because it was so bright. That was discouraging in the mornings.

We have now stayed in the inn and in the cottages. I absolutely LOVE the inn - it's charming and just a great place to unwind and relax. The owner has down a fabulous job of keeping the natural beauty of the historic home while making sure everything is up to date. It is beautiful! This last time we stayed at the cottages because we had our 2 year old son with us. It was great! The cottage was small, but hence the name cottage! The bathroom in our cottage was really tiny with no tub so that was a bit of a challenge with the 2 year old, but my inlaws cottage had a tub so it worked out ok. We will definitely book here again!! It's a great location and great service!!

My husband and I really enjoyed Dove cottage. We were there for 5 days & didn't want to leave. It's right in town so, you can walk to restaurants & shopping. Managers were very helpful. Comfortable bed. Fulley equipped kitchen. We highly recommend Thorp Inn & Cottages. We will be back. ¿¿ Barbara

This was our 2nd visit to Thorp House Inn and Cottages. We stayed in a cottage for 4 days, near the heart of downtown Fish Creek and walking distance to everything Fish Creek has to offer. The cottage was spacious enough for four. We had an option of eating our meals inside the fully equipped kitchen or outside on the patio. A grill is provided as well.The fireplace is a nice touch and beds are comfy. We'll be back again :-)

My boyfriend and I stayed for two nights to celebrate his birthday. The Inn is very well kept and very casual. Staff was wonderful, this is right in the heart of Fish Creek but has a woodsy feel to it as it sits a block behind the main street. We love Door County and try to come every year, I would recommend either the Inn or the cottages as I've now stayed in both.

Outstanding place, the staff was great!! We will definitely be going back.

We booked a couple nights in the Jessie Room at Thorp House Inn for our "Babymoon." It was such a fun, relaxing time. I love how this place was on the main drag of Fish Creek (so close to cute little shops and places to eat), yet still tucked away in a quite corner. Our room was wonderful and the breakfast (service and food) was delicious both mornings. I would definitely recommend!

We spent one night in Door County to celebrate a 50th birthday. Thorp House is located in a great spot in Fish Creek- we were able to walk everywhere! The Wren Cottage was perfect for 2 couples- cozy and comfortable. The innkeeper was helpful and we enjoyed our stay. Will come back again!
4.6 on July 21, 2017
Although our room was the smallest one, it was well-kept and lovely. It had a private bathroom, big closet and beautiful furnishings. The host was friendly and breakfast was yummy each morning, with an egg dish, fruit, muffins and beverages. Overall it was a great place to spend our anniversary.

This was our second time to stay at Thorp House Inn. My husband and I LOVE staying there. Their staff is always so friendly and accommodating. Their breakfast is perfect and we love the size of the house where there are only a handful of rooms in the house. We stay in a room with a private, quaint patio where we can sit, relax, and enjoy a glass of wine. Thorp House is w/in walking distance to restaurants and is right around the corner from Peninsula State Park. This year when we were there we drove up to Newport State Park where we accidentally locked our keys in our car. Lori and Ram helped us by getting our spare set of car keys from our room, Ram met us to pick us up and drove us all the way back up to Newport State Park to help us out. We were so thankful for this...they were a tremendous help and it saved our day so we could enjoy more of Door County instead of having a ruined day. We love it at Thorp House and will no doubt be back.

What a delightful cottage for my wife and I to enjoy on a four-day stay in Fish Creek. Lark #4 was perfect for 2 but could easily house up to 5 guests. The cottage was immaculately kept, cozy, comfortable, and well appointed. We spent a lot of time in doors due to mostly 32 degree, cold, steady rain. All the more reason to enjoy this delightful cottage at Thorp House Inn. The Inn itself is also quite attractive.

The Thorp House has been our family's summer vacation home for more than twenty years. Three generations of our family have experienced the Thorp House experience. The staff and properitors are always there to serve and make our vacations relaxing and comfortable. They also provide an affordable two week vacation for us. I highly recommend the Thorp House Inn and Cottages to anyone. Allen Vogt

The location, staff and house were wonderful. Everyone was very helpful and kind during our stay. The breakfast was not very good...actually really kind of disappointing. On our last day we refrained from eating it, and ate breakfast down the road.
3.6 on July 09, 2012
Wonderful location, very beautiful room. The whirlpool was wonderful to relax and enjoy a glass of wine. lack of hot water in morning routine. Would have enjoyed a little more substantial breakfast (pancakes, omelet, anytype of breakfast meat) instead of fruit, muffin, boiled egg and a artichoke strata. Staff seemed friendly, didn't spend much visiting time with us. Also had let them know it was a Anniversary Trip and thought they may leave a surprise in our room. (heard the Thorp Inn had done this in the past) Overrall would recommend to others.
3.6 on May 20, 2012
The location could not be better, the shops and restaurants of Fish Creek are right outside your door. The pictures online didn't do our cottage justice. That is something I worry about when I see pictures online, that they will be better then the real thing. No worries here. The cottage was adorable, comfortable, and the dining nook was larger then it appeared online. I was annoyed that a place, clearly designed for more then 2 people, had a per person fee. It had 3 beds in two bedrooms, yet you have to pay $20/night for each person over 2. They do tell you this up front, so it isn't a surprise. But it makes me question the value, especially in the off season. They don't clean daily, and you are expected to do your dishes and remove your trash when you leave. I am not sure what extra cost there is to them to justify charging me $40 a night extra for 4 people instead of 2. As far as the service, the room was spotless. However our DVD player didn't function. When we asked about it, we basically got blew us off by saying she didn't know anything about how to set it up so she could take a look but it wouldn't be much use. So we decided to figure it out ourselves. Eventually we realized something was broken, so we called back to see if we could get a new one. The innkeeper told us she was off site, so it would be a bit before she could get there. We eventually get a new DVD player, which we were very appreciative of but I do feel like the situation should have been handled more professionally and that we shouldn't have been made to feel like we were inconveniencing them. There is no breakfast included for cottages, so I can't speak to the food. Over all. Location was great. Cottage was adorable and clean. Value was okay. Service so-so. I would consider staying there again, but they haven't earned my loyalty and on my next trip I will probably give somewhere else a shot.

In addition to the main building B&B, Thorp House has several small cabins on the property. We stayed at the Quail cabin. It was a quaint site in a quaint town (Fish Creek), nicely decorated in country style, with two bedrooms (larger than expected), a living area with fireplace, breakfast nook, small but fully equipped kitchen, and bath with a jacuzzi tub. All in all well worth the really rather modest price. I will stay there again.

Great hosts and great facilities. Very quaint getaway and the perfect diversion from the big city.

This was our first time staying at a B&B. The Thorp House was very romantic and enchanting! The decor of the house was absolutely beautiful in every detail. All bedding arrangements were comfortable. Our room and community quarters were exceptionally clean. The owner and Innkeeper were friendly, hospitable, and gracious. They made our first time memorable and enjoyable. We visited over the Christmas holiday season and were able to enjoy various activities at the state park and local towns. The community of Fish Creek, WI made us feel welcomed. I highly recommend visiting at the Thorp House Inn & cottages. We plan on staying again in the future.

We loved the Thorp House Inn and will come back many many times!! The only reason I give the rooms a 4 star rating is that the beds in the cottages are painfully uncomfortable. That is my absolute only complaint. I loved everything about the Inn... except for the beds! Other than that, the cottages are adorable and well appointed. Perfect for a little getaway!! We will go back but just hope the mattresses are different!!

We stayed in one of the cottages for our honeymoon. We had a great time and the cottage was very well equiped. It had all the essentials in the kitchen so we were able to prepare a lot of our meals in the cottage. The owner of the Bed & Breakfast was also very helpful when it came to dining recommendations. We had a great time and really enjoyed our stay! We have vacationed in Door County and stayed at the Thorp Inn for the past 2 years and we will probably stay there again next year!

We had planned to stay here for 2 nights for a mini honeymoon after our wedding, but had to cut our stay short. The building and room were quite beautifully decorated and the staff was friendly and helpful. However, due to a lack of hot water and an uncomfortable bed we ended up leaving a night early. We were assured this was not a regular complaint and that they would do what they could to rectify the situation and make sure this didn't happen to another guest. The owner of the establishment was very understanding an apologetic and gave us a full refund for our stay.

We just returned home from a road trip circling Lake Michigan. One of our favorite stops was Thorp House Inn. We stayed three nights in the "Maria" Room. The home is lovely, innkeeper welcoming, and Door county area delightful. Ordered the reprinted "Bittersweet" by LaVyrle Spence before we went and enjoyed staying in the inn that inspired the novel. Area favorites, Fish Boil at White Gull Restaurant, Light houses, Cave Point, Peninsula State Park and sitting on the wide Veranda of Thorp House.
3.2 on September 26, 2011
Enjoyed staying in a bit of Door County history and out of the traffic zones of the busy streets! Would have liked to be a bit closer to the water. Price competition is increasing in the market and would like to see more special promotions.
4.4 on September 23, 2011
The room and staff were excellent. Leila was very nice and helpful! The breakfast was ok, just pastries and fruit. The inn should consider hot cooked breakfast.
3.6 on September 18, 2011
Dinning was not included which was perfect for us since we could prepare meals when we wished instead. Our cottage was noisy at times because of the road traffic , but inside was everything that we expected from a cottage. The only problem we encountered was that it took awhile to get the hot water to turn hot but once it did each time it was fine. This was a perfect place for a base to sight see from. I would certainly use it again.The people at the main inn were very accommodating and friendly when we needed anything.
4.4 on September 17, 2011

We stayed in the main house for four nights and found the room to exceed our expectations. It is less than a block to the main street in Fish Creek yet the Thorpe House was away from the noise and activity and therefore very quiet and restful. The owner was helpful in making dining and entertainment activities. The breakfasts were always quite good with excellent presentation of the table and food. We would absolutely not hesitate in returning to the Thorpe House again and again.

We had a fantastic stay in the Quail cottage and can't wait to return.

We thoroughly enjoyed our late August day stay. The Thorp House is a clean, delightful B & B and when we return to Fish Creek we will definately stay here again. It is a great location from which to visit the north and central parts of Door County. Washington Island is within easy reach from here. The breakfast was totally adequate, served with care.
5 on September 02, 2011
We prefer Bed & Breakfast Inns because of the relaxing atomsphere, privacy, historical site, antiques, better breakfast food, social time, and walking distance to downtown. The Thorpe House has all of these and we recommend couples to stay for two nights or more because of the home feeling the Innkeeper offers. We enjoyed the small town of Fish Creek and would tell anyone to try the slow pace. Wonderful!
4.0 on September 01, 2011
Well, we may not be the most experienced B&B stayers but have stayed at several over the years. I guess we were expecting a little more for the breakfast part of the "B". I was more of a continental with scones, fruit and a hard boiled egg. I would say that this was the first time it was not some sort of egg bake or skillet so we ended up looking for breakfast elsewhere so that added to our expense on the trip. Other then that the place is beautiful, great service, very nice hostess and very clean. Everything we have come to expect from the rate we paid for the Bed part. Just a little shy on the breakfast.
3.2 on August 31, 2011
My sister and I spent three days in the Teal Cottage nestled in the woods behind the main building. This was our fourth trip to the Door County Peninsula and our third stay at Thorp House. We found the cottage very clean and comfortable with a convenient floor plan. Though small, the kitchen area is open to the main living space and made it easy to access the cooking equipment. The nights were quiet and peaceful. The bed linens and mattresses very appealing and comfortable. We provided our own food and did our own meal preparations so the "Dining" category rating is irrelevant. We certainly plan to return to Thorp House in the future.
4.4 on August 29, 2011
We were greeted warmly at the door and after being shown the hospitality center (warm and cold water, tea bags (etc), mugs, a refrigerator for guest use) we were shown upstairs to our beautiful guest room. We enjoyed the nice linens, ceiling fan, roomy shower, jacuzzi tub with a skylight(!) and lovely decor of the room called "Emma". It was a beautiful sanctuary to return to after enjoying all the fun Fish Creek and the surrounding area has to offer. The lovely wicker furniture filled front porch and the inviting library were also special spots we enjoyed during our stay. We enjoyed yummy baked coffee cake and muffins and fresh fruit for breakfast along with hard boiled eggs, yogurt, granola and plenty of fresh coffee. We sometimes prefer a freshly cooked egg dish. We noticed in the guest book that many couples come here on their honeymoon or to celebrate an anniversary, which was true for us also. It was our first visit to Door County and this Inn helped make our visit very enjoyable and memorable.
4.4 on August 28, 2011
Our stay in Finch Cottage was great. The cottage was extremely tidy upon arrival, and we loved that we could utilize our stone patio each even with a cookout. We want a bit more privacy than the Inn maybe allowed, which was the reason for choosing a cottage stay. We were a bit surprised at the close proximity between the cottages and Inn, but it was not anything that put a damper on our stay. The closeness to the shops and water was definitely a plus. Overall, we highly recommend the Thorp House Inn and Cottages to anyone looking for a quaint, friendly, and clean stay in the lovely Door County. We will be returning in years to come.
3.8 on August 24, 2011
Cottages do not get breakfast so I cannot speak about the food. Our cabin was well represented by the photos on the web site. We had a nice stay and would recommend the cottages. It is also a great location, walking distance to everything in Fish Creek. We will be returning to the area next year but it sounds like it may not be possible to get a reservation for a cottage during the month of July (we stayed in August) and there is a minimum one week stay in July.

Several weeks ago we spent 3 days of our honeymoon at the Thorp Inn in Fish Creek. I cannot recommend it enough! Not only is the place itself beautifully decorated down to the tiniest details but the amenities and service are second to none. The staff treat you as if you're their own personal house guest. The breakfast was delicious and varied everyday. The location couldn't be better as you can walk everywhere in Fish Creek and I just couldn't believe the value. I will absolutely stay at the Thorp every time I return to Fish Creek. I grew up spending summers at my grandparents' house on Cottage Row so hopefully I'll be returning often! Thank you again, Camille and Mark

Thorp House Inn & Cottages was an outstanding place to stay. Quit and relaxing. Just a block away from downtown.
4.4 on August 09, 2011
The cottage was fine for 2 people. Clean when we arrived. All the basics that are needed for vacation, so we didnt have to pack the house and bring it with us. Nights were quiet. Location great, only a block off the main street. Innkeeper was available at all times.
3.2 on July 28, 2011
The great location in fish creek and ambiance might make up for what is lacking in the "breakfast" portion of B&B. One block off main street makes for a quiet but accessible stay, and every room of the house is meticulous in cleanliness and style, really relaxing and a time warp back to the early 1900's when the inn was built. But for the steep prices, I expected a better breakfast to start the day and add to the feeling of a vacation. Breakfast was in the kitchen (a beautiful one, I will say), and consisted mostly of muffins and coffee. There was some fruit and juice, but as someone who values a savory, warm, and full breakfast, this part of the stay was by far my biggest disappointment. I have had continental breakfasts at low-rate hotels that were more dynamic and offered more choices. When I pay for a B&B, I expect the breakfast to be top notch. Other places in Door County definitely deliver this. The good news is there are a handful of other places that offer great breakfasts just a short walk on Main Street. If breakfast is not your thing, or if scones and muffins hit the spot for you in the morning, don't hesitate to stay here - the rooms are fabulous and the management is lovely. But if you're looking for that fresh omlette or even a piece of toast, best to stay somewhere else or make a breakfast reservation in town.

We stayed three nights. It was romantic, beautiful, quiet, and right near everything in Fish Creek you could walk to.

We had a very tiny (by choice) cabin but it was more than sufficient. Nothing fancy but really quiet and close to everything at once. Clean and well run although parking is a problem and they need to assign spots so that you always have one when you come in late. Dining was not included so I can't rate that.

The place was gorgeous, and the owner kind. We stayed in the downstairs room and were woken up every am when she made breakfast in the kitchen. For the price, pay the extra $$ and stay in an upstairs room.

My wife and I stayed at the Thorp House Beach in Fish Creek, WI in early May. Although the weather was typical for Door County, the week was very relaxing and our stay at the Beach House was most pleasant. The fireplace and view of the bay made each day feel like a true vacation, free from the troubles we all experience in our normally busy days.

Fantastic room! The Everil room has it all - open, airy, balcony, fireplace, whirlpool. I highly recommend this place and this room. Breakfast scones are yummy. Close to shops (1 block) and restaurants. Very helpful innkeeper and owner.

My husband and I stayed at Thorp House for a few days at the end of Door County's quiet season. We loved staying in the Maria Room and enjoyed sitting by the fire downstairs in the evenings and having the owner's delicious scones and muffins for breakfast at the big farm table in the kitchen each morning. The inn was clean, comfortable and convenient--less than a block from shops, good restaurants, and the harbor in Fish Creek. In the summer, one could easily walk to the beach from the inn as well. We'll recommend it to our friends and would stay again.

I had stayed somewhere on the Thorp House property another 4 times over the years and my guest experience has always exceeded my expectations ! I had no feeling that it was going to be any different this time. Aside from that, it's pretty hard to mess up a weekend in Door County. We stayed in one of the cabins directly adjacent to the main Inn for which the wood-burning fireplace was the main attraction - gas fireplaces are for sissies ! We arrived late on a Thursday nite to be greeted by lights and heat on as the "Welcome" in welcome mat. The cabin was well-stocked with all the kitchen appliances and utensils we needed and happy to say, we used most of them. Lots of hot (softened) water for dishes and showers. The icing on the cake was Innkeeper, Leila who was so comfortable taking the time to engage us both in some casual and fun conversation the next morning when we officially "checked-in." She had hospitality written all over her and perfect for this position. Snow was quickly cleared from our deck and front walk after a light and picture-esque snowfall the following morning. We were on our own for meals, and there were several places within walking distance which were a good fit for the weekend. We wouldn't hesitate for a moment to make another reservation at The Thorp House Inn. The continuity of a quality guest experience must be their mission statement. - Conrad Tausend Milwaukee, WI

We've stayed in the Thorp House cottages in the past...but nothing prepared us for staying at their Inn. It was truly a wonderful experience. From the moment we checked in we felt welcomed and enjoyed our stay. The breakfasts are amazing, pumpkin chocolate chip muffins, scones all fresh....so good. Not to mention our room - it was small, but off the library, so perfectly done - not overly victorian and stifling - but tasteful and comfortable. No tv and no phone, which meant no distractions from each other.

Comfortable, knowledgeable innkeepers and great location to spend time away. You don't need to travel far for great food, wineries, outdoor adventures even in the winter! Great place to stay with very accommodating people!

I will be back again and I have recommended the Thorpe Inn to my friends. I wanted to get away and have some privacy. I feel like I got that. But I also felt like if I needed anything, help was readily available. The cottage was cute and comfy and I had a lot of fun staying there.

My wife and I have stayed at the Thorp House several times and we always have a delightful experience. We always stay in the cottages (our favorites are #3 and #4). The cottages are super cozy and all the Fish Creek shops & restaurants are within 1-2 blocks from your front door. Also, their rates are affordable - especially off season and weekdays. The owners are very nice and are always willing to recommend restaurants, trails to hike, etc. Thank you, Christine and Sverre!!!

We recently stayed at the Thorp House cottages as part of the Christmas/New Years progressive dinner package. The cottages were built in the 1930s and you won't mistake them for 5-star luxury suites. Although they are rustic, ours had a wood-burning fireplace and cable TV with a DVD player if those things are important to you. The innkeepers were very friendly and the entire progressive dinner seemed well-planned and was executed with class. Overall, I felt it was well worth our time and money.

It was just amazing how warm and inviting the cabins were! It felt like we were staying at our own property. Extremely well done in decorating, in being supplied, and the all around cleanliness. I would highly recommended to anyone who wants to get away for a while.

My wife and I stayed in the Inn over the Thanksgiving weekend. We loved our room, common areas of the Inn, our host - Sverre and the very excellent breakfast. Great place from which to enjoy Fish Creek and all that Door County has to offer. Can't give enough positive feedback about Sverre's friendly and attentive service during out stay. Perfect!

We went to this B&B during the off season and stayed in the "Jessies" room. It was clean, very comfortable, and had a gas fireplace with a remote control and thermostat. The hot-tub in the room was a nice touch, too. The staff were very friendly and considerate. Breakfast was tasty, with homemade scones and muffins, fruit, coffee, boiled eggs, and orange juice. Definitely more of a continental breakfast, but we had enough to eat, and they gave us extras to take with us during the day. Nice touches: they have a main fire place in a common area, had a fire going when we arrived, and told us we were welcome to start a fire ourselves if we wanted to. They have a pantry with drinks and cookies that you can access whenever you want. We were very happy with our stay, and will definitely recommend the place, and consider staying there again.

The cottage was quaint. It was a bit cold, especially at night for late October and the fireplace draft sometimes drew the smoke into the living space and set off the smoke detectors. Overall it was a nice place to stay, but I wouldn't want to stay there in the winter as I expect it would be quite cold.

My husband and I decided to get away to Door County after many of our friends raved about its beauty. We were glad that we chose to stay at Thorp House Inn! We didn't realize that Fish Creek was THE town to be in. Most everything was within walking distance. The breakfast was a highlight every morning - DELICIOUS home made scones and wonderful conversations. Both Sverre and Chris gave great recommendations of things to do, scenic drives, and places to eat. We stayed in "Jessie" and had one of the most relaxing stays that we can remember. We miss the fireplace and hope to get back soon!

Warm and friendly innkeepers. Light but sufficient breakfast consisting of fresh fruit, home-made muffins and scones, orange juice, coffee, tea, milk and water available. Svere always keeps your cups and glasses full. Great conversation with Svere and the oter guests staying at the inn. The rooms are exquisitily decorated with time period furnishings. The bed was wonderful. Never had a better nights' sleep. The in-room whirlpool was perfect after a long day in Door County. We would definately stay there again.

Beautiful historic home, very comfortable rooms. Innkeepers are knowledgeable and friendly. Excellent location - walking distance to restaurants, nice state park, and good swimming beach for kids. Right in town, but still quiet. Definitely recommend this B&B.

We stayed at the Thorp House Inn and Cottages for four nights in August, 2008. Every aspect of our stay was outstanding, from our surroundings, to the delightful breakfasts with phenomenal food and even better conversation with both inkeepers and other guests, to the knowledgeable information provided about what to do in the area. The attention to detail for the comfort and pleasure of guests was unsurpassed in our experience staying in other B and Bs. We viewed each of the rooms at the Inn, and found each to be better-than-true to the images found on the Inn's website. Our room was not only physically beautiful, but was cool and comfortable day and night despite having warm weather each day. Our room, the Emma, included a double-soaker whirlpool bath set underneath a large east-facing skylight, perfect for sunny mornings and ambient light in the evening. The Inn is located within easy walking distance of most shops and restaurants in Fish Creek. We will be returning - again and again!

Quiet, secluded location, yet close to everything you want to see and do. Wonderful balance of historic charm, genuine hospitality, and modern comfort.
