What can I possibly say about this wonderful place? My mom and I come up here every year and stay at captain Thompsons resort, the location of the resort is amazing, perfect view of the water and castles, and the down right amazing staff! One staff member in particular is Lisa! Lisa is absolutely amazing, kind, friendly, and super helpful, given the circumstances of this trying year with the pandemic, we still decided to book a trip up there and without disappointment, Lisa made our stay amazing! Informing us what was still open, things we could do, and awesome recommendation on where to eat! As long as Lisa is there we will always stay there at the resort!!! Thank you for all you do Lisa, you are simply the best!!!!

We were completely impressed with our 1st floor jacuzzi room. The view was breathtaking and so peaceful. We loved it! The bed was super comfy and the staff was exceptional. Everything was walking distance and we had a great time. Cant wait to come back next year! Thank you!
