I was part of a group of 5 friends - all ladies - who recently stayed at Seyon Lodge for several days of snowshoeing, relaxing and fun. We had a wonderful time and can't say enough good things about this wonderful hidden gem. There are numerous miles of trails throughout the state park property, accessible right from the front door of the lodge. Seyon Lodge is located in Groton State Forest. Although we could have chosen to explore the surrounding area as well, it was fantastic to be able to simply relax and enjoy all our snowshoe adventures without starting up the car again after our arrival. Probably the best thing about Seyon Lodge is the incredibly friendly and accommodating staff. It felt as though they were almost a part of our group while, at the same time, they were more than respectful of our privacy. The rooms were small but clean and cozy and the shared bathrooms were plentiful. Cozy nooks throughout the building allow breaks from outdoor activities for reading and relaxing. In the evenings, we threw logs on the fire in the living room and played board games in front of the fire. And what can I say about the food? It's a good thing we were burning all those calories because the meals were incredible. Bottom line - we are all Vermonters and have many opportunities for outdoor recreation without an overnight stay, but chose to spend some time at wonderful Seyon Lodge. This was our first stay, but it won't be our last. We plan to come again and hopefully experience Seyon Lodge in every season of the year.
