Extremely expensive with limited traditional/ non-traditional choices for holiday buffet. Ambience was not that of a pricier restaurant, more of a chain restaurant. Our server was nice, however not worth a 20% gratuity that amounted to over $40 die to the price of the buffet which is not affordable by any means for the average family.

Spending a week at Trapp Family guest house. Ate at the lodge main room. Rustic elegance. Not a large menu but diverse offerings. The food was very good. I would return again.

Acceptable experience, but a bit of a disappointment overall. Last night of a weeks vacation in Vermont for my 50th Birthday, which was noted in my reservation and the only mention of it was from the hostess as we were sat. The food was quite good....it’s the service that was NOT on point. Server was attentive but we were a bit rushed....big pet peeve! We had an 8:15 reservation as that was all that was available, but halfway through our meal the staff is blowing our candles stripping down table linens etc. When we asked for dessert and a chocolate martini to finish our last dinner in Vermont, the bartender had an audible opinion (heard from our table) at a drink order after she’d begun closing up the bar and putting things away, as verified when I asked our waiter if there was a problem. Again, enjoyed our meal quality, but the overall atmosphere and service were less than desirable, a shame for our last dining experience of the week and $149 check. I would definitely warn against a late night reservation when/if recommending.

The Von Trapp Lodge was a surprise vacation for my wife, who has loved the Sound of Music from the time when she was a child. We caught the peak of the fall foliage on our week, and the views could not have been better. The food was exquisite and perfectly prepared every time. I would definitely recommend to this to anyone traveling through the area of Stowe.

We were SO excited to go here, left very disappointed. Very expensive for a poor experience. Food was underwhelming at best, one dish was sent back - vegetables undercooked, sauce bitter. Service was unremarkable. Could use updating perhaps- seems the glory days are behind them. Such a shame. The setting is beautiful.

It was our honeymoon. The dining room was empty except for a table of two and a table of ten. The host placed us next to the table of ten. Their conversation was loud and inappropriate. The waiter was quite odd and unfriendly. He hovered and stared. We ended up moving to your lounge for a mediocre dinner. My wife’s hamburger was good. I hope this isn’t indicative of usual service.

It seems they are more concerned with presentation than the quality of the meal. My soup was warm in some spots, cold in others. The entree ( a Shneitzel was tough, dry and barely warm. the accompanying noodle seemed an afterthought. It too was room temperature and barely enough to taste. The desert was very good. at an average price of $60 per person plus tip it was way overpriced for the quality of the food which should be the most important part of the experience.

The view was beautiful, but the food was disappointing. We went here because it's on a few "Best of Stowe" lists, but no one in our party of six enjoyed their dinner. The spatzle (part of their signature dish) was cold, wet, and soggy. The meat was overcooked and flavorless. They also have different prices for the same alcohol on their dinner and dessert menu, and charged the dessert menu price (more expensive) even though the beverage was ordered as part of dinner. There are so many fabulous places to eat in Stowe - this is not one of them.

My souvenir from 30 years ago may had affect my evaluation. I took all my meal at your lodge except breakfast and a lunch.

The cakes were not that great and I could not digest it. The fish with uncook beans was horrible. The pork could be more tender, vegetable rare. Chicken rool not good and should be eliminate.....

We arrived at our reservation time of 6pm and were greeted and promptly seated at a nice table by the window. Great view and the tulips outside the window were a lovely bonus; they are my favorite flower! The dining area is open and inviting. The classical music was relaxing. Our server, Steve, was prompt, attentive, informative and friendly! Dinner was great. Loved the pork schnitzel (the lignonberry sauce was delicious.) And the cucumber salad was so good! Thanks for a great dinner experience!

Very nice ambiance and excellent service. We felt very much at ease.

The food was surprisingly disappointing - mostly bland and ordinary, especially the soups (cream of mushroom; White Asparagus Maine Crab). The Spring Parsnip Custard appetizer was excellent with a distinct parsnip flavor in the custard itself and the paper thin crisps that accompanied it. Of the main dishes, the Vermont Crunchy Rabbit was the best; the Schnitzel Wiener Art and gnocchi were competent but generally uninspiring.

All in all it was a nice evening for our party of seven, but we expected it to be more special.

Food is great although the menu is somewhat limited with "strange" items. The wine list is extensive yet very pricey for the selections compared to other dining options. But it is all about the views if you choose to select a window table.

Trapp family lodge dining experience was a real treat. We were looking for something more than what is generally offered in Stowe (burgers and beer)and found it here. To start the ambiance is conducive to being able enjoy your dinner guests and view is spectacular.
The food options are unique and delicious, the wiener schnitzel was just perfect for me. Our waitperson Christian was knowledgeable, personable and attentive. If you would like good food and service with a view and don't mind paying for it this is well worth it.

I had reserved for two in the dining room but when we got there we were told the dining room was not opening that night so we had to eat in the bar area. Very disappointing since we had reserved two months in advance and we were expecting a special ambiance. They could have offered us a discount on the dining room menu. The Cesar salad was great and also the schnitzel meal.
