2020 Labor Day Coupon

As we start a new decade, it is hard to believe we are going into our 140th summer season on May 22, 2020. So much has changed during our historic times, but one thing has stayed the same, gracious hospitality. With four generations currently maintaining the beauty of our resort, hospitality definitely runs in the family.

John and Mickey are doing well. They still take Benson for a walk on the Windham Path every morning and are still very active in the community. Mickey takes Maddox and Aiden to Sunday school every week and John is looking forward to mowing and keeping the grounds in tip-top shape.

Eric and Debbie are also doing well. Debbie broke her ankle in January, but that hasn’t stopped her from watching Aiden. In the fall, they visited Brent in Virginia, where they (even Debbie) went mountain biking. They plan to visit him again this spring. Kurt, Dasha, Maddox, and Aiden are also hoping to join them.

As some of you may have heard, Kurt was successful in his run for Windham Town Councilman. Kurt’s great grandfather and 3rd generation of The Thompson House family was Windham Town Supervisor in the 1930s. He’s working hard to keep Windham a wonderful place to live, raise a family, and visit.

Aiden, with Eric’s help, has joined Maddox as aspiring professional skiers. Aiden is already going on the lifts and skiing by himself. Maddox has become more comfortable skiing and is even doing double black diamonds (the hardest trails). It is only a matter of time before they are racing each other down the mountain. Dasha continues to manage the Alpine Spa at Windham Mountain. Kurt, Dasha, Maddox, and Aiden are planning to go to Russia this spring since they skipped their fall trip so they could vote for Kurt in the election. Brent is still teaching, but now in Harrisonburg, Virginia. He moved out of New York last August and is enjoying his new school district. We look forward to his visits during the holidays and visiting him in the offseason. Evan still works at Windham Mountain but is starting a new job with a company that handles networking for large events and festivals. This new job will take him all over the United States.

“I have been coming to The Thompson House for close to 20 years straight as my wife’s family has had a July 4th Family reunion for close to 60 years running. I absolutely love The TH. The Greene County/Catskills area offers so much. There are beautiful hikes to be taken, Caverns to explore, and amazing quaint towns to visit. The TH has become second home to me and I always tell people that it is probably the only 4 nights out of the year where I truly get to relax. The Goettsche family make the stay so welcoming. People that bring their families make it an annual tradition as the kids love everything The TH has to offer. The pool is great, the grounds are beyond beautiful, and it is a place where you can just have that really old school family fun. Shuffleboard, tennis, bocce, nightly entertainment such as magic shows and bingo. I highly recommend checking it out. You will absolutely have a great time.”

2019 Spring Letter

As most of you may know, The Thompson House has been run by the same family for its entire 139-year history. Kurt is the 6th generation, and Eric is the 5th generation to greet you at the door with a Thompson smile. We want to honor the 4th generation, John and Mickey. John and Mickey (in case you didn’t know) are Eric’s parents and Kurt’s grandparents. You may find John making coffee in the morning or on the lawn mower, while Mickey is either watering, weeding or pruning the gardens on The Thompson House property. Yes, this is why the grounds are so beautiful and how they like to spend their retirement days.

In October John and Mickey celebrated their 65th wedding anniversary. Their children and spouses took them away for a weekend filled with stories, memories, laughs, tears and just enjoying being together. The whole family… children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren were together on Christmas Day to celebrate John’s 90th birthday (his actual birthday). The house was filled with more stories, laughs, tears, and love. Mickey always says she can’t believe how one family can be so Blessed. In January John finally decided to stop volunteering for Meal-On-Wheels and was given a certificate of appreciation for his 25 years of service delivering to home bound seniors.

Maddox has spent many days skiing and is quickly becoming an expert. He loves riding the new high-speed 6-pack lift to the top of Windham Mountain and his favorite trail is Wraparound and the jump park. Debbie and Kurt decided to kick Eric out of the office more days this winter, and he has also been enjoying more time on the slopes than in the past 5 years. Eric and Kurt have also been taking turns helping the kids at “Ski Tuesday,” so they can ski with Maddox and his friends.

Everyone continues to do well. Debbie and Aiden have been spending a lot of time together this winter, and Benson loves it. Aiden knows where Benson’s treats are, and there is no place, he won’t find them. Dasha is in her second full season as the manager of Alpine Spa at Windham Mountain and is making a name for herself. Brent continues to teach elementary in Catskill and work on his house is moving forward. He plans on having the whole inside finished this spring. Evan returned to Windham Mountain this year in the ski shop and demo center. He also coached the local boys’ modified basketball team this winter and will be coaching the track and field team this spring.

The Thompson House opens for our 139th summer season on Memorial Day Weekend, May 24, 2019. We hope that you and your family or group will make it up to the great Northern Catskill Mountains this season. If you haven’t already made your reservation for this summer, please call us at 518-734-4510 or send an e-mail to info@ThompsonHouse.com.

Please enjoy another perfect review of The Thompson House family resort.

“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.”
