I must say that I am uterly disappointed with my stay at the Von Trapp Lodge. My two sisters and I saved our hard earned money for over two years to go on our dream vacation at the lodge. Our fascination with The Sound Of Music led us to the Von Trapp Lodge because of its affiliation with the musical. The website for the lodge is absolutly misleading and a far cry from what the lodge really is.
To start, the conditions of lodge were more like a retirement home than a vacation. The building was so run down that my sisters' and I literally feared for our safety. The room was dirty, beat up, and the linens looked as old the lodge. Obviously, at $350 a night, we would expect to have clean sheets and towels. That was not the case, we had to INSIST that our towels and linens be changed, and even after our request, the dirty linens remained on the bed. We tried to overlook the filth and undesirable atmosphere because we were really excited about all of the different activities and amenities that were supposed to be provided. When we tried to attend all of the different classes and workshops, very few of them actually exsisted. And the few that did, charged an outrageous amount of money that was never mentioned on the wesbite. We would have asked for a free night but you couldn't pay us to go back! To sum it all up, the vacation was overpriced, dirty, run down, and the activities did not exsist! The Von Trapp Lodge charges way too much and gives way too little!
