Because it is located in the rural heart of the northern Eastern Shore, Thornton can provide first class accommodations for those visiting the area for hunting activities. Arrangements can be made for professionally guided upland bird and waterfowl hunts. Some of them can be provided on the 300 acre Thornton farmlands.
Meals can be fully catered, including after hunt cocktails in front of the fireplace in the Library. There is also a fine sporting clay shooting facility nearby.
