Although we did not stay here it is likely our number one spot in the area to come back to. We stopped for an hours visit and this location is absolutely outstanding. Staff were friendly and it has a welcoming atmosphere. Yes it is a 'Sound of Music' atmosphere but the beauty of this mountain resort is overwhelming. It is... More

Being very honest, I am not an expert hiker....infact, I am not particularly sportsy or athletic, apart from walking the dog alot.... More

A fun place to visit... Would love to go back and spend moretime taking in all the family history and the story of the area. It was not one of our intended stops, so we were not able to spend a lot of time there.

Longtime Sound of Music fan here, so I had to visit the lodge when in Stowe. We did the family history tour, which is a bit expensive for what it offers. I think it was $18. Our tour was 20 minutes of Peggy talking about the history of the family, which most people already knew. I hope she is new,... More

Great outdoor center. They helped my son fix a problem with my bike and I rented a helmet there. They had anything you needed for any type of biking

You can rent all the gear you need at the outdoor center, or bring your own. Day passes are available for free if you are a guest at the lodge. I really like the pull up bars located at the main trail head.
