I started vacationing at the Thompson House when I was 5 years old and we swam in the creek. My parents continued spending time there for 25 years, and my family has continued the tradition. We brought friends there this past weekend for golf and relaxation and we could not have had a better experience. It still is immaculately clean... More

Went with a group of friends for 3 day golf trip. Golf program worked well for us and management was very helpful with arrangements. Even rooms in older buildings were clean, recently renovated and in good shape; not musty as you might expect. Only down side was that food at dinner left something to be desired, bland and uninteresting.

Room 372 was amazing. Gorgeous room with French doors. There's also a nice little dining area and a living room type area with a tv. Then through French doors is the bedroom area with two beds and a jacuzzi. The room was very clean and the beds were comfortable. The bathroom has a full bathtub and plenty of sink counter... More

Just returned from our annual family two day golf outing. Another stay made easy by our friends at the TH. Helped with the golf reservations and as usual the food,staff and service was outstanding. We have had five generations visit and from oldest to youngest we all love it. It is a old style family owned and operated business, so... More

As always, our Family Reunion was a total success. The Thompson House caters to all our needs, and we could not have had a better weekend if we tried! Their attention to detail and the clean and spacious rooms make for a wonderful experience. Can't wait to go back next year.

Five generations of my family have travelled to Windham and we always stay at the Thompson House. The Goettsche family are wonderful hosts and it is obvious that they work very hard to provide the best possible experience for all their guests. I've travelled extensively around the US, but I always enjoy coming to the Thompson House to relax and... More

Our family just recently returned from our 17th summer stay at The Thompson House. The property at the resort is beautiful and well-maintained. Many of the rooms have balconies and majestic mountain views. Rooms are clean, comfortable, and many are also spacious. Some of the buildings are modern and some date from the 1800s and have charming rooms. The owners... More

My husband and I stayed 2 nights to attend a Greek festival. The positives are: convenient location, clean, beautiful surroundings, sweet rooms with an old fashioned feel, I felt as if I stepped into the 1950-60s The negatives are: no hot water in our room. Let the water in the sink run for a long time for hot water. I... More

We would like to thank you for noticing how clean and beautiful the surroundings are and how sweet your room was. We obviously are not a modern facility. Also with the older buildings sometimes something needs to be fixed here or there. That is the sliding glass door. Thank you for letting us know. We are sorry for the problem... More

Stayed here in July 2014, while attending an Irish festival in East Durham. The facilities in Wyndam are much more upscale and if it is "very hot" in the Catskills, it's cooler up higher. We also needed to be connected as we had some work to do (we're self employed - short getaways are common - can't go away for... More

our family has been going here for the past 17 years and we always have a lovely stay. The resort is updated constantly..this year my room had a new couch and two new wing chairs. Everything is always spotless and the owners and staff are the nicest people. Every year we enjoy our breakfast and the town of Windham has... More
