Our extended family has gathered at the Thompson House twice in the last 4 years. Each time, we have enjoyed extraordinary hospitality!! The rooms are spacious and comfortable (a little dated but that only adds to the quaintness of the place). Many rooms have balconies overlooking the beautiful grounds. The food is delicious in the dining room and the little... More

We went back for the 29th year, so I guess that speaks for itself. Again our family including grandkids met up with several families whom we've watched through the years grow up and are now onto the next generation. It is the quintessential family reunion spot.

First let me tell you that everybody was extremelly friendly and welcoming. The staff is really nice. But i think the last renovation was sometime in the 70. The room was so cheap looking,the towels where really nasty. The sheets where clean but the bedcover was really old and dirty. I don't like other people hair on my bed. The... More

We appreciate your review. I'm glad you found our staff friendly and welcoming. Our rooms are decorated in a Colonial American style, which we find fitting for the area and the type of family resort that we are. Some rooms have been more recently renovated than others, the Colonial American style remains consistent. Our staff typically removes any dirty or... More

I was hoping for our room to have a view just like the website shows. Instead we had a view over the side-top of the building. The house is dated and I can't even begin to describe the smell. So bad, and it's even in the towels. Didn't even feel clean getting out of the shower. Even though there was... More

Sorry that the room was not what you expected. We try to be as open and honest as possible about our rooms and what they look like. With 70 unique rooms on the property it is difficult for a family run business like ours to show every detail of our large property. We’ll get a picture of the non-poolside view... More

The staff and the grounds were fantastic. The rooms, lobby, everything were clean and welcoming. Complimentary breakfast is provided. When checking out I noticed housekeeping in the room across from ours opening the dresser drawers and dusting INSIDE them.

Just came back from a 4 day trip with 4 of our friends. Our rooms were nice, clean and cozy. The hotel staff was super welcoming. The location is ideal. So close to the mountain and all the restaurants. This wasn't the Hyatt but so worth the money. We are definitely coming back again!
