The hotel is located in beautiful surroundings and the staff is very friendly and helpful. They gave us an overview of things to do and places to eat nearby. We followed their recommendations and they were all great. The free wifi in the room was also a big plus. The room itself was clean and spacious. It's decorated in an... More

The people that worked there were absolutely wonderful. Not only were they warm and friendly but were very helpful. The room was large and had a very old smell to it. The beds were comfy and the shower pressure was perfect (2 very important things for me.) the only disappointing thing was the "continental breakfast" the limited options and added... More

I feel like this hotel resort used to be a premium place to stay, you can still get the sense of the retro glory days. The resort is situated alongside a beautiful creek right amongst the Catskills and is a less than five minute drive from Wyndham Mountain Ski Area. There is a large pool in the center of the...

Our autumn stay was short but extremely enjoyable. If you are looking for a country hotel that will relax you, this is the perfect setting. The food is satisfying (how about blueberry waffles?) and the owners/managers couldn't be more hospitable. Take a walk on "The Windham Path" or visit the town of Windham to window shop or grab a bite... More

It is always wonderful to have you and your family stay with us. We're glad you enjoyed this stay as much as your other ones. Blueberry waffles and pancakes are very popular, especially in the fall. Autumn is a great time to visit the Norther Catskill Mountains. The colors, weather, and ambiance are some of the best of the year.... More

The Thompson house is just like going to Grandma's. They are happy to see you and greet you graciously. Our room was warm, spacious and cozy in the cold winter.

We just wrapped up our family reunion, which we hold almost every year at The Thompson House. We thank Eric, Debbie, Kurt and Dasha for their attention to detail. Everyone went home happy, well fed, and looking forward to next year. What a wonderful place to gather for good food and good times.

Was very pleased with my stay here at Thompson House Evergreen Lodge. Stayed two nights room was kept clean and staff was very friendly. View of mountain was so breathtaking near good restaurants and not far from Howe Caverns to visit for the day. Nearby golf course and best ski area and festival events. Recommend staying here.
