WINDHAM, NY–Known for creating and reimagining iconic boutique hotels in idyllic and unexpected destinations, Wylder Hotels announces the acquisition of the legendary The Thompson House Resort in Windham, New York.
The group plans to reimagine, restore, and honor the history of the beloved resort, set to reopen in the spring of 2022. Wylder Windham will be the third outpost in the Wylder Hotels collection, following the openings of Wylder Hope Valley in 2020, which was recently named one of the best new properties in the world by Travel + Leisure’s 2021 “It List” and Wylder Tilghman Island in 2018.
The Thompson House is a 110-room full-service resort on 20 acres with 140 years of the same family ownership. Located in the Greater Northern Catskills, this sprawling property is adjacent to the picturesque Windham Mountain and Windham Country Club, with the Batavia Kill River running through it—providing ample outdoor experiences for guests to enjoy.
“It is a magical, one-of-a-kind property, full of charm in an incredible location” said John Flannigan, Founder and CEO of Wylder Hotels. “I grew up in upstate New York so when I discovered this gem of a place with so much history and soul, I was not only excited and proud to have uncovered
someplace new and special, but I knew immediately that this was the place for our next Wylder.”
Experienced in revitalizing historical properties while leaving their original character intact, Wylder Hotels has big plans for the new Windham location. Paying homage to its nostalgic past, the restoration will be inspired by a sense of place and all that Windham has to offer, from the surrounding nature to its classic charm, and small-town nostalgia.
Wylder Hotels are uncluttered by trends, brimming with distinct character and effortless sophistication. Wylder exists for travelers who appreciate adventures, big and small—known for seeking out storied locations and reimagining them. Wylder Hotels preserves the historical integrity of its properties while adding the trappings of modern luxury (without the attitude). A Wylder Hotel is made in the details.

Mountains in June 2020 and was named one of the best new properties in the world on by Travel + Leisure’s 2021 “It List”.
