Here for the Outdoors- Not Disappointed!
Jul 2021
Like many, we were here for the great outdoors after the COVID lockdowns- we were not disappointed. The hiking trails are beautiful and there is a wide range of difficulty levels. We stayed on the wider and easier marked trails.

A relaxing place to enjoy the fall foliage
Oct 2021
We came here to see the fall foliage. It was very good though not spectacular. The Swiss chalet style lodging gave it a unique accent in a rustic setting.

Wanted to love this place…
Sep 2021
As a native German speaking American, yet a lover of movies, I really wanted to love this place. A. No one spoke German. B. Hospitality was not their primary concern.

We did not have dinner reservations and were told, flat out, forget it. Sat in the bar area and ordered 2 beers and 2 pretzels. Ok….pricey, but expected. When we had the audacity to move a bar stool. Head “male hostess”“ came over and told us in a stern voice not to move the stools. Really? It is cold and raining on a late September afternoon…and we just moved a stool.

Not exactly Gemütlich.

Von Trapp History Tour was educational and entertaining
Aug 2021
When my wife and I grew up in the 60s and 70s, The Sound of Music was one of the "classic" movies for families. The movie's story and the music were interwoven into our childhood. When we found out (on Trip Advisors) that the REAL Von Trapp Family had, eventually, emigrated to the Stowe, Vermont area, we knew we had to visit! We spent 4 hours at the Von Trapp Family Lodge, and were thrilled to attend the "Von Trapp History Tour!" The tour included a 30-45 minute overview which provided an excellent summary of the "actual" Von Trapp family history...and the presenter made sure to emphasize the part of their history that was not the same as the fictional storyline that we had seen many times in the Sound of Music film. We were also shown a BBC film that featured actual footage of Maria Von Trapp returning (as an older lady) to Austria and seeing her old friends. The History Tour concluded with a brief presentation by Georg and Maria's grandson, Sam, who lives in Stowe and he shared his experiences and he also conducted a question and answer session.
After the tour, we enjoyed a very delicious lunch at the Von Trapp outdoor cafe. Our group of four included two of our adult children and we all really enjoyed this memorable visit to the current family home of this famous family.

Bikes & Trails
Sep 2021
We rented bikes here and the staff was very helpful & informative of the bikes and trails of the area. He got us fitted with the type and style bike we would need for the trails we could “handle”! Helmets were supplied, as well! Trails were well maintained and marked!

Von Trapp Lodge History Tour
Aug 2021
I went into the tour with low expectations; thought I knew everything from reading all the books. I was very pleasantly surprised. Michael did a fabulous job of telling the Von Trapp family story from beginning to present. I learned many things I hadn't heard and Michael's style and voice are very pleasant to listen to. He also showed us a very enjoyable BBC documentary of Maria's story that included plenty of footage of Maria. Next Maria's grandson was present for any questions we wanted to ask about the family.
Afterwards we had a very delicious lunch in their cafe and then toured the grounds which made for a very special day.

I wanted to love mountain biking here, but…
Aug 2021 • Family
The trails were not well-maintained. Two of my four kids left bruised up after separate wipeouts. Either large rocks, long grass, muddy holes, or maple tubes were hard to go around at fast speeds.
We had no idea where we were most of the time because the trail map was awful and the few signs on the trail don’t match them. How about adding a “You are here,” to signs along the way?! We were done after 2 hours.
For 6 bikes, for a 4-hr. rental, I thought paying almost $350 was too much.

Charming stay
Aug 2021 • Family
Absolutely charming. Only stayed for one night on a road trip but our room was great and the views spectacular. (Highly recommend the brewery, too.) This was a summer trip—would love to return in winter or fall.

Great First XC Skiing Experience!
Feb 2021
We are beginner XC Skiiers and had an amazing time at the Trapp Family Lodge. They had affordable rentals and well groomed trail with friendly staff there to assist with trail picking and directions. Parking is easy to find as well. Once you're done you can head to the beerhall which has great lunch and beer!
