Eye opening how much work goes into making syrup. The guide and the sugar makers were very knowledgeable and did a great job. I would recommend the tour. My only disappointment was that after this tour we found out the tour of Maria Von Trapp is only conducted once a day on Wednesday and Saturday and we had missed that... More

The lodge was neat and we bought the day pass, so we could hike. It was great hiking and the views were beautiful. The guy at the store was very helpful and friendly showing us where to hike and giving us tips.

The von Trapp family, from Sound of Music, settled here, and their heirs are still running the place, great buildings and things to see, and added to the collection in the center is a house with all of the furnishings and paintings from the donated reproduced rooms, where you can see Manet, Monet, Mary Cassatt and Degas paintings and Remington...

A little piece of Austria in Vermont. What a beautiful lodge, pleasant staff and perfect grounds to stroll or ride.

This is a wonderful place for family outings or couples. We rented mountain bikes and hit the trails which are great for beginners and those looking for technical single track. 2500 acres is plenty to keep you busy! Service in the bike shop was courteous and they know their stuff. We'll be back!

Came on a recent Tuesday, so as to catch the Family History Tour. It was not led by a von Trapp family member, but Christina (granddaughter) did conduct a fairly brief Q and A at the end. The 30-minute film about Maria was shown in a room full of daylight with a skylite, for heaven's sake, so the screen image... More

Don't miss going up to see the Trapp Family Lodge even if you are not staying there. Their gardens were some of the prettiest I have ever seen (Butchart Gardens in Victoria were the only ones better!). The view of the mountains are breathtaking.

Stayed a Friday through Sunday one of the king bed suites in the main lodge. While the surroundings were beautiful, the lodgings themselves could use a lot of help. The inside and outside were really run down. Our suite smelled like dogs and we didn't realize that dogs of all sizes were allowed in all the rooms. So, we felt... More

We went to this location to see nostalgia of the Trapp Family. There are only two tours given each week and the days had changed from what was advertised. There are a few family photos and a small gift shop. I am glad I went, but I would only recommend it if someone was truly interested in the history. Beautiful... More

We initially visited the Trapp Family Lodge Outdoor Center for a map of the hiking trails on site (if you're staying at the lodge, they'll give you a pass). The lady working there was very kind and more than willing to help and suggest trails. She also suggested we do other activities, which we unfortunately did not have time to... More
