Very cold and dark environment. Staff OK and food the same. Being a von Trapp site I expected more. View probably better in Spring through Fall - everything was brown and not covered with snow yet.

We did not stay at the lodge, but we were urged by a friend to at least drive by and check out the facility. It was definitely worth the trip up the mountain to see the beautiful buildings and views.

We stopped by this morning and were given helpful info on hikes. They even offered to make dinner reservations for us! You can pick up a trail map, a water bottle and anything you could possibly need for a day or morning of hiking.

This was our first stop on our Autumn Color Tour. We found out that we are actually described as leaf peepers - thus our "2014 Leaf Peeper Tour" was titled for sure. We were visiting to see the beautiful location that the Von Trapp family found to settle after escaping Austria. The mountain was ablaze with color and charm. We... More

We went for the tour which describes the history of the Trapp family. Christina (the grand daughter of Maria) gave the tour because there was a slight mix up but worked out great for us. She described the differences from what really happened and what was in the movie. We saw a great film on Maria going back to Austria.... More

We went on the history tour and enjoyed hearing all about the real Maria and family. A highlight was a documentary letting you get to know Maria and hearing what her life was really like. We met the youngest son at the end of tour, and he answered questions from the audience. Beautiful place, interesting history.

Trapp Lodge allows dogs, so we assumed we could bring ours along when we explored their trails. Had we known dogs weren't allowed, we wouldn't have stayed here. It's a fantastic outdoor center otherwise, friendly helpful staff. But they need to make it clear to guests bringing pets that they will not be welcome on the hiking, biking and ski... More

If you like to do outdoor activity in a beautiful spot, this is the place to be. They have wonderful trails for walking and, also, for biking. If you like history, there is a lovely historical tour about the Trapp. Do not miss this!

Hotel & complex now on the site. You can fully understand why the family settled here. We just walked around & had a drink in the hotel. Nice place to visit while in Stowe

We arrived during the peak show of Fall foliage just in time for the Trapp Family tour at their lodge in Stowe. Thoroughly enjoyed learning about the family where the film left off as well as any changes that were made for the film. The granddaughter, Christina, was so charming and down to earth. The site is on a knoll... More
