“Wonderful Experience!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2012

My wife's family has been coming to The Thompson House for over 50 years, during the July 4th holiday. This has been my 8th time going and each time, it has gotten that much more enjoyable. I just came back home yesterday and I really miss it already. The grounds are immaculate and the rooms are spacious and clean. My 3 kids, ages, 9, 7, and 3 absolutely love it. Eric, Debbie, and their 3 sons are wonderful hosts and they will do anything to make your stay that much more enjoyable. Breakfast and dinner are included. The food is very good and the wait staff is excellent. There are daily activities such lawn dice, word games, boche, and shuffle board tournaments. The pool is outstanding. It really is a place (well Windham in general) where you can be as busy or as relaxed as you like. I may head down there for Labor Day weekend. I am not sure if I can go a whole year without another visit.

Each year we ride our tandem tricycle from home, near Ithaca, NY, to Point Judith, RI, and the ferry to Block Island (near Providence). After three days of riding we are ready for a rest day. The Thompson House is absolutely perfect. Quiet, wonderful food, friendly people AND a bike shop down the road.
I didn't rate the spa, simply because we didn't use it. I see from signs that massages are available for guests.

Room Tip: Our room overlooked the golf course. We loved it.

Just got back from a Memorial Day Weekend get a way. Always a pleasant experience at the Thompson House (not meant for hard core partiers). Stayed in the Evergreen Suite with a great view. Rooms are clean (very important to us) and food always filling and great tasting. Pool area always inviting, along with the mountain view. Staff is always friendly and the owners are always pleasant and accommodating. We have visited during the fall, spring and summer seasons and all are very nice. The Thompson House is not as vast as other resorts such as Sunny Hill or Woodloch, so it depends on what you like and what your looking for. We like to stay during there quieter times, to relax and take in the beauty of the Catskills.

Our first time staying at the Thompson House, had an excellent experience, warm and friendly staff, the rooms are spacious and spotless. Our room had a great view of the mountain and its slopes. The fresh coffee and homemade granola in the morning hit the spot. The TH is located close to Main St., and the mountain. We have stayed at three other places while visiting Windham, all good, but TH is at the top off the list now!

Just stayed for two nights with my 23 year old nephew and 2 teenage sons. It was perfect for all of us. Huge room and balcony, all the staff very laid back and helpful. Would stay there again.

Recently stayed for the Columbus Dayweekend with family and friends. This is a yearly event, but the Thompson House was a new venue for us. Staff was accomodating, friendly. Food was good. Rooms were beautiful and very clean. Part of my family has lived in Windham for over 50 years and we have stayed at many nearby locations-this is a gem! You will get every bang for your buck and aside from the activities on the property, there are many nearby attractions.

Room Tip: The main house is accesible to all and you don't have to cross the road for the dining room/acti...
