Our family visited the Trapp Family Lodge for three nights during April school vacation. The surroundings can't be beat. You're up in the mountains and there are miles of cross country skiing, snowshoeing and mountain biking trials on the property.
We stayed in a suite in the main lodge. The bed was large comfortable and the living area had two pull-out couches for the kids, a dorm-size refrigerator and a coffee maker. There were TVs in both rooms. Everything was tidy and clean.
The ground level of the lodge has a library, lounge, restaurant, and some common rooms with comfortable seating. Complimentary coffee is available in the mornings and tea and cookies are served each afternoon. In the evenings, there's entertainment in the lounge provided by John the piano guy, who was friendly and eager to play requests. There's also beer on tap from the on-site brewery.
The staff could not have been more friendly. When I alerted the front desk that we didn't have enough towels for the five of us, they had somebody deliver extras to the room within a half-hour, and extra towels were left for us each day of our stay.
There's an on-site fitness center with a nice indoor pool, sauna, and outdoor hot tub. There's also a bakery where you can get coffee and breakfast and sit out on the deck among the mountains.
We had a great time and would visit again.
Some minor criticisms:
The shower in our room was impossible to control. No matter how much adjusting we did, our showers always ended with a cascade of scalding hot water.
The housekeeping staff failed to supply us with sufficient toilet paper, so we ran out toward the end of our stay.
