The mountain bike trails were really fun for me, a novice and my husband who has been riding for years. We also hiked afterwards which made it a more full experience.

I came here for a fortnight with my wife. We enjoyed our stay very much here. The rooms are old, but have all the modern amenities you come to expect. The view is unbelievable. Majestic. The small garden is wonderful. Our only disappointment was the food unfortunately. It felt the menu has not been updated in about 50 years. Even... More

Absolutely gorgeous views! You can spend the entire day just staring at the scenery. We spent most of our time walking around in the gardens and then heading down to the little shop that sells their own brewed beer and baked goods.

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.
