If you are looking for a good and pleasant rest in the lush green nature, you must stay at the Thompson House in Lidham, NY. Friendly welcome and home style rooms. Excellent french style restaurant in town.

First visit to The Thompson House. I went completely by the reviews on this site, and am glad to say that I was not disappointed. Went with my wife and our year-and-a-half old son for a last minute get-away. I called the place directly to make a booking the day before we arrived. I went for the breakfast and dinner...

Enjoyed a delightful family reunion at the Thompson House. What a great location! Spacious, comfortable rooms, friendly and super-accommodating staff, and something to do for everyone. Played golf, swam in the creek and the pool, enjoyed relaxed and delicious meals, and breathed fabulous fresh mountain air...! One of the highlights certainly was the Saturday evening horse races! What a hoot!...

just returned from our 16th year at the Thompson House- it gets better every year. The entire staff bends over backwards to accommodate your every need. Our rooms at the Evergreen were perfect as they always are and the view of the mountains and golf course from our balcony cant be beat.. the pool area, dining room and game room...

This is our third time at The Thompson House. I cannot say enough about what a lovely place this is. We had a family group with multiple generations, and everyone, from the 4 year to the 84 year old, had a wonderful time. The staff are all friendly and helpful, and the feeling of relaxation and warmth is evident everywhere....

My family (2 kids under 10) and I just love staying at the Thompson House because the staff are so incredibly friendly and the rooms are HUGE! Our room has a lovely patio that walks out onto the public golf course which is a big attraction for my oldest who took the sport up last year and likes to watch...

My Family loves The Thompson House. We have been going there several times a year for 19 years now. Every time we leave we count down the time until we go back. The people are so friendly and the atmosphere is so relaxing. The food and entertainment are always great.

We hold our family reunion every year at The Thompson House.. We always say we had the best time ever, and this year was no exception! The Goettsches accommodate our boisterous bunch with a smile, and we always leave wishing we had just one more day! Thanks for another year of great memories.

My wife and her family went here when she was a kid and this was our fifth year going as a couple. We go to relax and that's the one place we can do that. Everyone is like family and that warmth just oozes from everywhere. We look forward to Labor Day weekend every year just to get to The...

Well, it looks like we are the 'odd' people out. Didn't care for the place at all and felt that it certainly wasn't worth the price we paid. Yes, the staff was friendly, but that's pretty much were it stopped. While the room was large and clean, the furniture was dumpy (think 80s), the toilet lever broke, no AC but...
