“A Hidden Jem”
Reviewed 20 June 2014

I was one of 10 women staying for 2 nights at this very special property which is hidden away, but offers every comfort.
Chris and Tiffany are the summer innkeepers, accompanied by a most helpful, friendly staff.
Each room is warm, cheerful and spotlessly clean as are the bathrooms. There are cozy nooks and crannies everywhere for reading, conversation or just relaxing in solitude.
The food is just amazing! Everything is either made from scratch right there, or purchased locally. Each evening began with salad that was hand picked from the ample garden. An authentic, outdoor pizza oven sits near that garden providing the most delicious results!
Outdoors, the pond is steps away with a gentle trail around it and quite a history, which Chris was more thah happy to share.
Our focus was hiking and we were sent off with maps, directions and bag lunches containing homemade bread, homemade hummus, homemade cookies. (Are you getting the idea?)
There is nothing they could do to improve this experience. It was total bliss!

Room Tip: Every room is totally charming!

Lisa who owns Mad River Quilting organizes kwilt kamp. She rents the entire lodge. The first time was in the summer but we had sew much fun that we now do a winter kamp as well. We set up our sewing machines in the conference room where there is ample space for ironing boards, etc. We stock the refrigerator with goodies. They feed us all our meals which are amazingly prepared and delicious. They accommodated our vegan quilter with surprising meals. They make us a campfire late at night in the summer. We snow shoe in the winter on the trails. It's more fun than humans are allowed to have. Looking forward to this summer's kamp!

I'm writing this while relaxing with a cup of tea on the couch in the upstairs reading nook at Seyon. What a delightful day we are having. We started with morning tea from the self service tea center just outside our room. Then a delicious breakfast that was prepared just the way I like it. I inquired about having an omelet and the ingredients available. I enjoyed every bite of the spinach, onion, cheddar, bacon omelet. Then we went out for a couple hour cross country ski on the groomed trails. We listened to the birds and the wind in the trees. Saw lots of animal tracks in the snow including moose. Then back to the lodge to relax a bit before a perfectly simple lunch of soup and grilled cheese sandwiches. The soup choices where beef stew or carrot ginger. My wife had the beef stew and said it was excellent. I had the carrot ginger that was strong on the ginger, I loved it!
Then we went out for a snowshoe around the pond, absolutely heavenly.
The staff is sincerely friendly and accommodating. This place is way out in the woods, come and relax.

Room Tip: There are only 8 rooms. We had one with a double(or is it a queen?) and a futon couch. There are a f...

I was part of a group of 5 friends - all ladies - who recently stayed at Seyon Lodge for several days of snowshoeing, relaxing and fun. We had a wonderful time and can't say enough good things about this wonderful hidden gem. There are numerous miles of trails throughout the state park property, accessible right from the front door of the lodge. Seyon Lodge is located in Groton State Forest. Although we could have chosen to explore the surrounding area as well, it was fantastic to be able to simply relax and enjoy all our snowshoe adventures without starting up the car again after our arrival. Probably the best thing about Seyon Lodge is the incredibly friendly and accommodating staff. It felt as though they were almost a part of our group while, at the same time, they were more than respectful of our privacy. The rooms were small but clean and cozy and the shared bathrooms were plentiful. Cozy nooks throughout the building allow breaks from outdoor activities for reading and relaxing. In the evenings, we threw logs on the fire in the living room and played board games in front of the fire. And what can I say about the food? It's a good thing we were burning all those calories because the meals were incredible. Bottom line - we are all Vermonters and have many opportunities for outdoor recreation without an overnight stay, but chose to spend some time at wonderful Seyon Lodge. This was our first stay, but it won't be our last. We plan to come again and hopefully experience Seyon Lodge in every season of the year.

We "invaded" the lodge for a large family reunion in early August 2013. It was a wonderful stay but highlight to everything was the very accommodating staff at the ranch to our three-generation, carnivore/vegetarian and boisterous family. We opted for full breakfast & supper meals and were very pleased with the variety & quality. Many of the veggies came right out of the garden in back of the lodge--fresh and tasty. Rooms were small but nicely decorated, clean & comfortable. Rowboats were available for fly fishing or just poking around. The pond isn't apt for swimming, but Boulder Beach on Lake Groton is a short drive away. You can bike to the lake, but biking back up to the lodge is a mini Pikes Peak challenge.

A group of us stayed here over Labor Day weekend. The lodge sits back from a gorgeous, quiet pond surrounded by pine and fir trees. In the morning you can hear loons. The staff is very helpful and prepares delicious, organic and free-range food for you - and can also stoke up the campfire or the fireplace for you. There's excellent wi-fi, though no phone service. It's very like a B & B with shared bathrooms, simple and charming. It's far away from road noise, but pretty close to nice hiking trails, the Cross-Vermont bike trail, and two lakes for paddling. We had a full weekend of activities, and appreciated the comfort at the end of our days. You don't even have to leave the lodge - there's a hiking trail around the pond.

Room Tip: One room on the first floor is right next to the living room, so it might be loud.

The staff was very nice and very helpful during our recent stay at Seyon Lodge.

Apart from the location in a forest and the many possibilities of relaxation, this is certainly a most important aspect of the qualities of the place.
