ThorpeWood is a 156 acre mountain property, nestled 1500 feet high in the Catoctin Mountains near Thurmont, Maryland. At ThorpeWood, the Lodge is a green building and was put into service in February 2000. Green in several ways: that many of the finish architectural appointments are from recycled materials; we used innovative insulation; there are dual fuel furnaces; our boiler provides hot-water circulated into a forced air heating system; we use composting toilets with a nutrient recycling graywater system; and water from the roof is directed to wet planting areas.
ThorpeWood models stewardship of natural resources. We want everyone to know how to act responsibly with the resources that nature has given us, and we model that, even in the very design and structure of the building that houses our event space and offices. Our main building and surrounding native landscaping offer examples of sustainable design to instruct and inspire.
