A fabulous place with fabulous people! The owners and staff of the Thompson House do everything, and anything, to assure that their guests have the best experience possible. From check in to check out, it is simply a wonderful, relaxing, enjoyable vacation.

We stay at the Thompson House every time we go to Windham. It is unique and beautiful and clean. They really care about their guests, making you feel as if you are part of the family. The rooms are large with plenty of places to put your "things".

My family has been enjoying the Thompson House for over 14 years! My mom & dad started going after we all were married and started having kids. Once we got wind of this gem of a place, my sisters and I have vacationed with mom and our kids for what has turned out to be one of the most cherished weeks of the whole year!

Eric & Debbie and their family are all outstanding, wonderful people who treat you as if you were members of their family. They know everyone's names, anticipate your needs and the staff is kind, friendly and helpful. Walking into the dining room is just like coming home because you know practically everyone there! The food is abundant and outstanding.

Traveling with my family to The Thompson House is truly one of our favorite weeks of the year. There's always something to do, activities are held each morning....bocci, shuffleboard, lawn dice and more. There is entertainment every evening...bingo, music, magic shows. You can take part in all or just relax by the heated pool and swim or just lay around and read. Whichever you choose, you'll love it!

We already have a countdown...only 50-1/2 weeks until we return next summer!

  • Liked — Everyone from my 1-1/2 year old nephew to my 70 something year old mother had a great time!
  • Disliked — Nothing...LOVE IT THERE!!!!!!

We just returned from a four night stay. We are a family of four with two teenagers. It was wonderful, just what we wanted. You can do as much or as little as you want. There are some organized activities, and plenty of things to do on your own. The food is very good, especially the deserts. The grounds and the accommodations are immaculate and roomy. We will definitely come back again with more relatives. My in-laws golf and the course is right next door. Everyone should go here!!

My family & I have been traveling to the mountains for 50 years. First, it was "The Sugar Maples" & now "The Thompson House" for the last 23 years. The owners Eric, Debbie & their children are beautiful people; better then most relatives!!! The facilities are well kept, food excellent & the mountain views like heaven. If you want relaxation, golf & some FAMILY VALUES, you should pay them a visit.

The Thompson House is more than just your typical Hotel. The staff takes pride in their work and extends an atmosphere which is unparalled. This is a safe and homey experience that can not be put into words. Eric and Debbi will make you feel like you are part of the family, extending themselves without limit to grace their guests. Our kids litterally count down the days until our annual visit occurs, the moment they return home from their vacation. We have been travelling to the Thompson House over the past 20 years, staying the same week each year. You'll LOVE Windham!

We just returned from an outstanding vacation. Husband, wife (50 ish) and two teenagers (girl 13 and boy 15) - we have not stopped talking about how wonderful this vacation was! There was definately something for everyone! Fabulous food, homemade desserts (the real thing), wonderful hosts, cleanliness! You were as busy as you wanted to be. Sitting on your balcony enjoying the solitude of the mountains, reading, enjoying music poolside, joining the many activities for kids while separate from adults, rock climbing, bocci, putting contests, in house massages, bus tour to local winery, nightly entertainment, kids going "creeking", I could go on and on. Not only did the parents enjoy the vacation but our kids have not stopped telling their friends about how cool it was! Having the kids tell their friends it was better than Disney was evidence enough! It doesn't happen often enough where everyone is so happy - We're not waiting until next year, we're heading back Labor Day Weekend!!!!

  • Liked — Personal touch, genuinely interested in our vacation, wonderful food, cleanliness, charming accommodations, family atmosphere, friendly, activities offered, peacefulness of mountains, etc.
