I Girlfriend and I felt the need to get "out of town" for the weekend and Thumper Pond had an open room! The staff were very accommodating, the room was very nice, clean, the beds were amazingly comfortable and the location was exactly what we were looking for. The only (minor) issue was there were two wedding receptions planned there... More

This is very much a conference center resort. Not a lot to do if you are not part of a wedding or a golfer. The rooms are run down - nicks in the furniture and mold in the refrigerator. If you want to watch tv on vacation this is a great place for you 😕 On a positive note the... More

Have stayed at the thumper Pond for at least 2 prior occasions before the roof collapsed on the water park and really liked it. But I was very disappointed in the new pool (not a water park) as it is only three and a half foot deep at the deepest the water slides didn't work the hot tub was not... More

Fairly expensive and a little understaffed during the week, but a pleasant place to stay. It is a quiet and relaxing location to spend some time. Problems booking on-line and food quality is just average.

Stayed for 2 nights for a family event. Received nice room and free one day golf passes under birdie package. Reasonable for a weeknight, but Friday expensive, but I expect comparable with lake resorts in the area. Very nice golf course. Excellent food in the restaurant. Setting is very nice and we always see a nice wedding there. Waterpark still... More

After winning a gift certificate we booked a room at the Thumper Pond Resort for the three of us girls for a mother daughter weekend. We planned an hour and a half drive to get to the resort but it took a little longer than we anticipated because of the location. The roads to the resort were a bit confusing... More

Smelled musty. Room was cold. Very clean room. The front desk staff were rude. The coffee in the event center was cold. It is a nice conference center but could use a little training with staff to make the environment more comfortable for everyone.

I usually come here four days a year for a professional conference. The hotel is located in a beautiful area. The rooms are spacious and comparable to a nice mid priced hotel. There is what to me a non golfer looks like a beautiful golf course here. However if you don't golf there is not much to do. They are... More

Was her for a business meeting. This place is in the boonies but they carved out a very nice resort. Rooms very comfortable, people very friendly and overall a very relaxed atmosphere. There are no places "in town" to go eat (pop ~400) but that isn't an issue since the bar/restaurant on site is just fine. Service was a bit... More
