Trapp Family Lodge

Stowe, Vermont

The hotel

Remember epic film The Sound of Music about the von Trapp family and their flight from Nazi Europe? Well, this is where they landed, in Stowe, Vermont, on an enchanted farm with sweeping mountain vistas reminiscent of their beloved Austria. Still owned by the von Trapp family, their home is now a striking alpine lodge set in a magnificent outdoor playground. If you’re holidaying in winter you can enjoy horse-drawn carriage rides and there is superb skiing nearby, with the 3-mile trip by snowshoe or cross country skis to the charming Slayton Pasture Cabin for hot chocolate definitely worth the effort in the winter months. In summer, there’s hiking in the mountains, cycling, horse-riding and bird watching. In fact, the list is endless. Accommodation is extremely comfortable with plenty of home-from-home comforts. Splash around in the outdoor pool when the weather’s warm or head indoors to the health centre to swim a few laps. The kids will love spending time in their very own activity centre with fishing trips on the agenda, guided hikes, scavenger hunts and good old fashioned singalongs around the campfire come sundown. Dine in style at the main restaurant, feasting on Vermont and Austrian cuisine, including speciality dish Trapp Wiener Schnitzel. The Lodge also boasts its very own brewery – sample the range whilst listening to Jazz piano.

We absolutely love our visits to the Trapp Family Lodge Resort. We always eat on property and love to hike, snowshoe, cross country ski, and swim. We often visit the gift shops and take advantage of the shuttle on property as well. Such a wonderful, relaxing couple of days. Thank you!!

Every aspect of the resort needs a redo. Healthier food options a must. Can hear people in adjoining rooms, including those above. Fitness facility locker rooms are antiquated. Minimally friendly fitness center staff. Could use spa with facials, mani/pedi etc..not just massage. Signage is minimal on snowshoe trails.

Imagine what a place created by the von Trapp family might be like at it's best. Then show up to find that it's all that and more. The only thing to be careful of is how pricing eating can get. Bring food for some meals if you have a budget issue. And plan to eat in town a bit.
Image of the Tripadvisor rating Shabby, poorly designed rooms at a high price

Jan 27, 2020 JonathanT3269

Expensive “Resort” pricing with shabby, run down bedrooms. Tiny poorly designed bathrooms with showers that never got fully warm. You need to be a contortionist to reach the toilet paper while seated and the bathroom has no heat source of its own.

We took ski lessons on our first day and then were able to utilize all of the impeccable trails during our stay. It was just the relaxing trip we were looking for and highly recommend a stay here.
