ThorpeWood is located on 155 acres nestled in a rocky and heavily forested stream valley, 1,500 feet up in the Catoctin Mountains of Maryland.  We will be providing transportation from the hotels & downtown Frederick to the venue- located 15 miles north of Frederick. We encourage everyone to take the bus but if you need to drive, please contact us so that we can coordinate you safely getting to the site ... More details to follow on bus pickup times from both hotels and downtown Frederick! 

The ceremony will (hopefully) be held outdoors. Golf carts at the ceremony will be available for anyone requiring assistance. Please let us know if you think you will need special assistance the day of the wedding. The reception will be indoors at the lodge with transportation provided back to Frederick at the end of the night. 

Wedding is dressy casual - Please be sure to wear comfortable shoes and bring a warmer layer for when the sun goes down!
