Was visiting from out of town. Nice location up in the hill. Decorated nicely for the Christmas holidays. Didn’t make a reservation, so had dinner in the bar area/lounge. Could still easily hear the piano performance....which was nice. Food, drink, & service was great. No complaints.
We stayed at a guest house there. The house was just as advertised. They offer rock climbing, cross-country skiing, hiking, an outdoor hot tub, a pool, a fitness center, a spa, and many other fun activities. They raise animals such as sheep and cows. Some other animals that I didn’t see were pigs and chicken but they said that they have them. The breakfast buffet was amazing, while the dinner was okay. I don’t know how to explain the dinner, it was just nothing special, and we cancelled our other dinner reservation. We loved the resort and we purchased a timeshare. I would really recommend this place to people who want to getaway and relax, or for family bonding.
Place is gorgeous, staff is helpful and friendly. We enjoyed the Von Trapp family history and the beer tours. However we ate breakfast in the main dining room and found it woefully disappointing considering the cost. In addition we were out walking with our friends who stayed here as well. We went in looking forward to a hot cup of tea in the lounge. It was 3:00 the advertised time for tea and cookies. There was no hot water for tea or regular tea bags. I could not locate anyone to replenish these items so I went to the front desk. This man was very helpful.
The grounds, views and exterior of the hotel are impressive! The views are stunning especially in October. They are particularly beautiful when you can capture their grazing sheep or cow herd too. The grounds include the burial ground of Captain Von Trapp and Maria. Additionally, the flowers and exterior of the lodge make you feel like you are in the Alps. The interior looked like it needed an update or renovation. It looked very much like it hadn't been updated since the 80's
You can really feel a sense of culture here. The dining was fantastic and the grounds were breath taking. You get a great view of the mountains from the lodge. The prices reflect the quality but if you are visiting Stowe it is a place well worth the visit even if just for a meal. I recommend looking up the Von Trapp family history too before going to make you all the more connected.
