Our hiking club stayed for almost a week at The Thompson House while visiting the Catskills. The hotel is casual and comfy, the rooms were clean, the amenities were plentiful, but most important the staff was extremely friendly and attentive to our needs. We try to explore new hiking areas each year, but when we do return to the Catskills... More

Perfect room for our party of 4. 2 grandparents and 2 young girls. It's a resort with many things to do on it's property. The location is great because it's near a lot of fun things to do. We hiked in the mountains nearby- North Lake and Artist's Rock. We drove to Howe Caverns and enjoyed the 52 degree temperature... More

Our ski club, the 55+ Ski Club of Roundtop Mountain Resort in Central PA, has been staying at the Thompson House and skiing Windham Mountain for many years. We enjoy the homey comfort of the lodge and family like hospitality from the staff. The large breakfast and meeting room is a favorite spot for our group to gather and relax... More

Excellent personalized service. Made to feel very welcome. Prices reasonable. Room was very clean and comfortable. So much to do on the property there's no need to leave if you don't really want to! Also, many excellent activities around the entire area. We went as a couples get away, but it is an excellent place for family as well. We... More

The staff is kind friendly and helpful, the grounds are clean with plenty of activities and amenities, and the Thompson House just has this charm to it that other hotels don't. They've been in the business for over 100 years, maybe thats why! The rooms are clean and the beds soft and comfortable, the decor is more rustic but not... More

Last September (2014), I organized a group of seniors for a two-night stay with golf packages at The Thompson House in Windham, NY. We had 16-18 people who participated. Our reservations included breakfast, dinner and a round of golf at each of the two golf courses in Windham. Some of us also played golf on the way home to Long... More

This hotel is comfortable and quite. Eric is a great host and business owner. He works hard to make sure that everyone is happy and is taken care of. I highly recommend this hotel. The hotel is located in Windham New York which is a serene place upstate. The fresh air is just a joy to breath.

The management goes out of its way to assist you if there's a problem and to follow up even after it's resolved. This lovely resort has the feel of a boutique hotel--cozy, warm, friendly. The meals are delicious, from the peach waffles in the morning to the wonderful dinners with a dessert tray offered to you at the end.

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.
