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

As some of the reviews say, The Thompson House accommodations are very nice. The views are exceptional! What makes the Thompson House really a standout resort is the exceptional staff. They go out of their way at every turn to make sure their guests are comfortable. I often go to the lobby in the morning to enjoy a cup of... More

We stayed at the Thompson house for an overnight after attending a Windham chamber music concert, which was held a mile away. Our room was spacious, clean and neat. The windows were open in the room when we arrived , welcoming the crisp, fresh mountain air . The view overlooking the golf course and distance mountains was spectacular. It is... More

I have been going to The Thompson House since my grandparents took me there over 40 years ago. They have managed to keep it the same but in pristine and very clean condition. It has a nostalgic feel so it is always like stepping back in time. Can't really put it into words so you must experience it for yourself... More

As far as I am concerned, this is the best resort in the mountains. Have been staying here on and off for 30 years. Service is amazing, the location is breathtaking, there are always improvements to the property year in and year out, the staff and management are always trying to make your experience the best possible.
