“First stay - we'll be back!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2013

Enjoyed a delightful family reunion at the Thompson House. What a great location! Spacious, comfortable rooms, friendly and super-accommodating staff, and something to do for everyone. Played golf, swam in the creek and the pool, enjoyed relaxed and delicious meals, and breathed fabulous fresh mountain air...! One of the highlights certainly was the Saturday evening horse races! What a hoot! Ran out of time, so rescheduled the family bocci and shuffleboard "tournaments" til next year! We cannot wait to return!

just returned from our 16th year at the Thompson House- it gets better every year. The entire staff bends over backwards to accommodate your every need. Our rooms at the Evergreen were perfect as they always are and the view of the mountains and golf course from our balcony cant be beat.. the pool area, dining room and game room are spotless..always leave there looking forward to my next visit.

This is our third time at The Thompson House. I cannot say enough about what a lovely place this is. We had a family group with multiple generations, and everyone, from the 4 year to the 84 year old, had a wonderful time. The staff are all friendly and helpful, and the feeling of relaxation and warmth is evident everywhere. It was such a pleasure to sit down in the dining room and enjoy the great food -- especially the desserts! The pool was warm, and all the games were great. Also, The Thompson House is impeccably clean and well kept up. We plan to come back next year but we will stay longer than three days!

My family (2 kids under 10) and I just love staying at the Thompson House because the staff are so incredibly friendly and the rooms are HUGE! Our room has a lovely patio that walks out onto the public golf course which is a big attraction for my oldest who took the sport up last year and likes to watch the other players. The kids also very much enjoy the game room: their dad is teaching them to play pool, there's a table soccer game, a table shuffleboard game, some video games, paddle ball, and (for us old-timers) a pinball machine. Although there is a fantastic looking outdoor pool, we've never been able to enjoy it because we always visit during the end of spring when it's either too cool or too wet .. but one day! We request the "meal plan" so we always have a wonderful breakfast and simple but satisfying supper waiting for us. It's well worth the money.

Room Tip: If you have an end room on the first floor (there are only two floors) where the outdoor stairs are...

My Family loves The Thompson House. We have been going there several times a year for 19 years now. Every time we leave we count down the time until we go back. The people are so friendly and the atmosphere is so relaxing. The food and entertainment are always great.

We hold our family reunion every year at The Thompson House.. We always say we had the best time ever, and this year was no exception! The Goettsches accommodate our boisterous bunch with a smile, and we always leave wishing we had just one more day! Thanks for another year of great memories.

My wife and her family went here when she was a kid and this was our fifth year going as a couple. We go to relax and that's the one place we can do that. Everyone is like family and that warmth just oozes from everywhere. We look forward to Labor Day weekend every year just to get to The Thompson House!

Windham, the facilities, the mountains - all nice. But what makes this really special is - the people. Whether you want to get away from it all and just relax or stay busy and explore the fun things, this is the place to go.
