Renovations begin on former Thomson House Resort, now Wylder Windham
Michael DeMasi reports in the Albany Business Review that the former Thomson House Resort, a 141-year-old, 110-room resort on Route 296 in Windham, has begun renovations. Wylder Hotels of Los Angeles bought the resort in June for $2.27 million, according to a deed filed in the county clerk's office. They are now calling the property Wylder Windham, and expect to open in spring 2022. Wylder owns resorts in Hope Valley, California, and Tilghman Island, Maryland, and their Wylder Hope Valley in California's Sierra Nevada Mountains was named one of the best new properties in the world by Travel + Leisure recently. The resort, with 20 acres and the Batavia Kill crossing the property, was owned by members of the Goettsche family since 1880 but Eric Goettsche of Windham couldn't be reached for comment. John Flannigan, founder and CEO of Wylder Hotels, would not say how much the company is spending on renovations. Read more about this story in the Albany Business Review.
