We were very pleased with the ambiance and the cleanliness of the room. Eric was a great help and he could not do enough to make sure that we enjoyed our stay. It is located about half the distance to between Windham ski mountain and town. Very affordable and would highly recommend The Thompson House.

Thank you for taking the time to review our hotel. We're glad you enjoyed your stay with us during your recent ski trip to Windham, NY. Eric and everyone here always do our best to make guests stay as enjoyable as possible. Including our housekeepers who work hard to make sure rooms are clean and comfortable. Being so close to town, Windham Mountain, and having an amazing view of the Catskill Mountains, help make our location prefect for your stay. Again, thank you for taking the time to write a review for our hotel. We hope to see you again soon. - Kurt (Thompson) Goettsche 6th Generation of the Thompson Family

Family owned business with the nicest folks ever. Rooms are good size, neat and clean. Service requests are handled in a timely manner. Continental breakfast is substantial. Stayed here as part of a ski group and had service above and beyond.

We're both city kids and my wife wanted one of those retro Catskills vacations from our childhood. We found Thompson House online, saw good reviews and figured "why not?" Given a previous vacation in the general area, I didn't expect much and man, was I wrong. You'll hear that the place is dated, but that's not the case at all. The entire place is fastidiously clean. Not a leaf out of place, not an errant stain anywhere. Seriously, if it was dated, then the wallpaper in the room would have a stain *somewhere* or furniture wouldn't be in perfect repair. But it's not dated - it's decorated in keeping with the area. It's also as well maintained as anywhere I've ever stayed. Not a chip or scuff to be found anywhere. Even the games they have out for guests are in great shape. I'm a bit of a snob. I know this. I'm a trained chef, so I'm even more of a food snob and I also didn't expect much in the way of food. Seriously, I thought we'd be getting reheated Budget Gourmets or something. Again, I couldn't have been more wrong. The food was REALLY good, well prepared, varied and plenty. They even do all their own baking on premise, which is really kind of cool. I was shocked at how good it was and how nice the dining room was, too. The thing that makes all this tick though are the people who work here. They're just amazing. From the housekeeping staff that keeps Thompson House clean and serviceable to the server who knew what all your preferences were by your second seating, they're all invested in making sure your stay is the best it can be. We go to Disney a lot and I tend to use that as the gold standard to measure other hotels and resorts with. While it's obviously not Disney, I can honestly say that Thompson House as good as any place we've stayed. If there's a drawback, it's that they don't have a liquor license. If you wish to have an adult beverage with dinner, you'll have to bring it with you.

We are very fortunate to have great employees, who work with us year after year. It is part of what makes our guests come back year after year. We are working on the opportunity to offer guests adult beverages with dinner. Hopefully we'll see you and your family again in the future. Again, thank you for your great review of our family resort. Kurt (Thompson) Goettsche 6th Generation of the Thompson Family

What a nice place to stay! It's a bit on the old-fashioned side, but that's just fine if you don't mind having a real key to open your door (we liked it!) and décor that's a bit homey (fine with us!). The best part of the Thompson House was, for us, the meals: they were fantastic and included for both breakfast and dinner... fresh, tasty and many ala carte options to choose from. We had a terrific waitress named Joanne, who has worked there for 45-plus years! She was the best! We also liked the evening activities/entertainment, particularly Sean the Prankster (a magician). The Thompson House has been in the same family since 1880 and the folks who run it are helpful and friendly. I should also mention that it is very close to the heart of Windham, which is a charming little town with cute shops. I would love to come back again!

Lovely place to stay for a family vacation. The place is immaculate. They have a great pool, meal plan options, rec and fitness room. Really nice, hard working family run business. They are the 5th and 6th generation of family that have owned this business since 1880. Highly recommend this hotel.
