I stayed two nights at Thumper while visiting family in the area. The setting is stunning, set among mature red pines next to a beautiful golf course. The room was large, clean and cozy. I had a delicious breakfast on the lovely, large stone patio that overlooks a pond and fountain on the 18th hole and had the best Bloody... More

My 89 year old mother and I came up from Texas to meet with her 93 year old brother and his family for three days. My experience may be a little different than other reviewers as we were here during the middle of the week so I didn't experience the "busy-ness" that many have had. Our room was a nice... More

We arrived around 2pm (close to an hour before check-in) The hotel staff was warm and accomodating, they had no problem letting us check in early. Upon entering our King room, we immediatly... More

We stayed on a Saturday night and resort was sold out so it was very busy. The staff was extremely friendly and they were overwhelmed by the guest's. I would recommend reservations for the resturant as we had to wait over an hour to get seated. The food was excellent and the resturant staff was also very professional and friendly.... More

We planned a birthday party and to stay overnight. There was broken glass in the lazy river and my son got his foot sliced opened and couldn't go back in the water. The waterslides were shut down both days we were there because it was to cold to run them. The boys were bored to death. When I spoke with... More

My husband and I stayed here for a wedding recently. I called ahead of time to verify our reservation as the bride indicated that the groom's family reservations had been messed up.

We were treated like royalty and had a blast! We opened up our suite with champagne on ice and chocolate covered strawberries waiting for us. The golf course was in great condition for being in October. The food was great and the staff was fantastic! I especially want to thank Stefanie at the front desk who multiple times went above...

My class reunion was held at Thumper Pond on Sept 13th thru the 15th. We had a great time and the employees, from the check in, the restaurant, the buffet, and check out were very friendly and helpful. The grounds are beautifully maintained. The only complaint I have is that the towels in the room need replacing. They are starting... More
