In these uncertain times its good to know there are few things of which we can be certain. One, of course, is the tender care you take of your rental home and guests. Thank you for making this an oasis from stress. We so appreciate you and your hard work, your kindness, and generosity. From your great grandparents grand hotel to this house is a refreshment. Hospitality is surely in your blood.  We will be back!

July 2020

This is our third year at the BD Thorp House and it was just as wonderful as ever. With all the craziness in the world today, we debated coming up here. I am so glad we did. It is wonderful that we can count on this fantastic house to be the perfect place for our yearly vacation. We all needed to get away and relax. Thank you so much for your generosity. We will be back next year and will be counting the time until then.

August 2020

This was our first time at the Thorp House. What a wonderful place to stay. We appreciate everything you do and enjoyed the lovely art work very much. We have been coming up to Door County for 50+ years. First time staying in Ephraim- Wilson’s was so close:)

September 2020

The 3 of us had a wonderful time. The house is fantastic! Beautiful and very comfortable. It was a very relaxing trip.

September 2020

Our return to Thorp House was wonderful. We had 3 glorious days before our trip was cut short by a kidney stone! Rushing out the door but wanted to say “Thank you”! We enjoyed a wonderful dinner at Chefs Hat. Perhaps we will be able to return in Oct? Love the new sofa (upholstery?) and new master bedroom bedding since our last day.

October 2020

Its a joy to stay in such a clean and well maintained house. Your attention to all the details was quite noticeable. This is our first year at BD Thorp House. We are so happy to celebrate our 30th anniversary. We have been coming to DC for decades, but never stayed in such a marvelous place. The Fall colors viewed out of the front picture window are beautiful. Thank you for sharing this special house with us.

June 2019

We had a lovely time at your home. My three boys and I loved exploring and being connected to a nature landscape in a way we aren’t able to in the city. Your home was a safe and inviting space for our family, thank you!

July 2019

We had another wonderful stay at the Thorp House! Thank you so much for your hospitality and for recommending Wilson’s Ice Cream Parlor and Fika Coffee and Bakery- loved them both! We are planning on coming back next year!

Clean, comfortable and well equipped. We had another great week at the BD Thorp House. Thank you for your hospitality and concern. We especially appreciated your visit during the storm to make sure we were comfortable and ready.

BD- You did it again! Your careful planning, generosity, and gracious hospitality made you our vacation hero! Were looking forward to our 5th visit soon. Were very grateful!

August 2019

This is our second year staying at this house and was just as wonderful as last time. We played outside in the huge yard everyday and I snuck in a nap in the hammock. It is such a warm and homey place. Thank you so much for all of the hospitality. Thank you for recommending the Old Post Office, we will be going back for breakfast. We are very sad to see our vacation end and we are counting the days until we come back next year. Thank you again.

September 2019

Thank you for another wonderful stay at your home! This is the second time my husband and I brought my mother and aunt to stay at your home. Everything was perfect! You thought of every detail. We look forward to staying again!

September 2019

Once again, thank you so much for letting us use your wonderful home. 5 years now and hope to keep coming back. Nice talking to you BD.
