We were completely disappointed with our stay at the Von Trapp Lodge. Our fascination with The Sound Of Music led us to the Von Trapp Lodge because of its affiliation with the musical. Our room was dirty and beat up. Obviously, at $350 a night, we would expect to have a clean room. The light colored carpet in the room looked like a herd of muddy zebra had walked through the room at some point. We tried to overlook the filth and undesirable atmosphere because we were really excited about all of the different activities and amenities that were supposed to be provided. The free movie about Maria Von Trapp is simply a TV program from the 1980s shown in the basement of the hotel. And of course they have the most uncomfortable folding chairs in the world for seating in the "theater."
Moving on to the food in the restaurant, my advice again is to skip it. The food was mediocre at best and was very expensive.
There were two things that kept me from rating this hotel as horrible. The first were all of the interesting Sound of Music and Von Trapp photos and artifacts in the hallways. The other was the pool down the hill in the fitness center. The pool was very big and was a lot of fun for kids. My suggest is to simply visit the hotel, stroll the halls to see the photos and artifacts and watch the free showing of the "movie" if you really like the whole Von Trapp family story.
