Five generations of my family have travelled to Windham and we always stay at the Thompson House. The Goettsche family are wonderful hosts and it is obvious that they work very hard to provide the best possible experience for all their guests. I've travelled extensively around the US, but I always enjoy coming to the Thompson House to relax and...

Our family just recently returned from our 17th summer stay at The Thompson House. The property at the resort is beautiful and well-maintained. Many of the rooms have balconies and majestic mountain views. Rooms are clean, comfortable, and many are also spacious. Some of the buildings are modern and some date from the 1800s and have charming rooms. The owners...

My husband and I stayed 2 nights to attend a Greek festival. The positives are: convenient location, clean, beautiful surroundings, sweet rooms with an old fashioned feel, I felt as if I stepped into the 1950-60s The negatives are: no hot water in our room. Let the water in the sink run for a long time for hot water. I...

We would like to thank you for noticing how clean and beautiful the surroundings are and how sweet your room was. We obviously are not a modern facility. Also with the older buildings sometimes something needs to be fixed here or there. That is the sliding glass door. Thank you for letting us know. We are sorry for the problem...

Stayed here in July 2014, while attending an Irish festival in East Durham. The facilities in Wyndam are much more upscale and if it is "very hot" in the Catskills, it's cooler up higher. We also needed to be connected as we had some work to do (we're self employed - short getaways are common - can't go away for...

our family has been going here for the past 17 years and we always have a lovely stay. The resort is updated constantly..this year my room had a new couch and two new wing chairs. Everything is always spotless and the owners and staff are the nicest people. Every year we enjoy our breakfast and the town of Windham has...

As some of the reviews say, The Thompson House accommodations are very nice. The views are exceptional! What makes the Thompson House really a standout resort is the exceptional staff. They go out of their way at every turn to make sure their guests are comfortable. I often go to the lobby in the morning to enjoy a cup of...

We stayed at the Thompson house for an overnight after attending a Windham chamber music concert, which was held a mile away. Our room was spacious, clean and neat. The windows were open in the room when we arrived , welcoming the crisp, fresh mountain air . The view overlooking the golf course and distance mountains was spectacular. It is...

I've been coming to here for around fifteen years now. Not only are the owners and workers great and willing to accommodate you, but the guests are amazing as well. You will find yourself making new friends. You'll feel like you've gone back in time when visiting the Thompson House. They've done a great job preserving it's history. Lots of...

I have been going to The Thompson House since my grandparents took me there over 40 years ago. They have managed to keep it the same but in pristine and very clean condition. It has a nostalgic feel so it is always like stepping back in time. Can't really put it into words so you must experience it for yourself...
