Our whole extended family recently stayed at the Thompson House while attending a memorial service. While we there under sad circumstances, we were pleasantly suprised to discover what will certainly be an annual vacation spot for us from now on. The Thompson House is a family-operated inn infused with pride, care and tradition. Our whole group felt as though we were staying at a "home" rather than just a hotel. The rooms are immaculate and very well maintained, each with homey furnishings that reflect this true mountainside retreat. There are a variety of room types, but each are considerable larger, offering more space, amenities and a tremendous value as compared to several other hotels in the area. The junior suite and jacuzzi suites are huge, with planty of space to sit and relax, each also equipped with refrigerators and large closets to accommodate ski gear. The beds were extremely comfortable and they offered free WiFi which was a hit. The inn serves a complimentary continental breakfast each morning in their comfortable lobby/living room which included fresh coffee, a variety of cereals, including oatmeal and homemade granola, as well as bagels, yogurts and muffins. Our kids especially enjoyed the game table in the lobby/livingroom, the variety of board games guests can use and take back to their rooms, sleds for outside and surrounding grounds where they built a snowman which was complemented by several of the staff members. The view of the mountain from the lobby is amazing. We also had views of the mountain and/or beautiful babbling brook from the rooms we stayed in.
The hotel's location is ideal...just outside of downtown Widham so quiet and serene but so convenient with several restuarants, Windham ski area, a pharmacy, etc. within a 2 minute drive. Downtown Windham is quaint and offers several good restaurants...we enjoyed many meals at the Cave mountain Brewery which brews their own beer and had a menu to satisty adults and kids alike. They even had karaoke night which the kids (and adults) loved.
The area is simply beautiful and the Thompson House provides a perfect ski retreat, run by generations of innkeepers who sincerely care about their guests.
We will definitely be back to the Thompson House!
