...great service. We drove up to look at the lodge and found it delightful, good little gift store. Stopped at the coffee shop which had a great balcony to sit out and enjoy the vistas from. Worth the drive.

“very beautiful”
Reviewed October 8, 2013

Very beautiful place, we toured the place, the history of the van trapped family, the pictures and paintings were very inspiring. Ate in the restaurant and walked a little of the trials. It was a nice experience and a pleasure to learn the family history....

“A great Maple sugaring tour”
Reviewed October 6, 2013

The Trapp Maple sugaring tour was excellent.
We were guided by an actual farm worker, who works at the Maple grove during the season. He showed us the entire process - from the taps on the trees in the grove all the way to the sugarhouse where the syrup is cooked to it's familiar form and bottled.
Our guide, Chris P., was very informative and knew the answers to most of the tourists' questions, and gave us a lot of background info on the Trapp property and on Vermont farming.

It's a great 90-minutes tour suitable for kids and adults alike, and I highly recommend it.

“Low expectations,,, Pleasantly surprised”
Reviewed September 5, 2013

We took the tour / history of the van Trapp Family lodge. Thinking it was a little "touristy", was reluctant.. turned out to be a great afternoon. The tour guide was beyond excellent. Information was inspiring and educational. Walked a few of the trials, ate the the restaurant, awesome experience. Try the parsnip milk shake.. very very interesting. I liked it.
