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 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 and suitable for couples as well as larger groups and families with many rooms interconnecting. Splash around in 2 outdoor pools when the weather’s warm or head indoors to the health centre to swim a few laps if it’s cold. 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 in the basement of the Deli-Bakery – sample the range whilst listening to Jazz piano in the lounge.

Relaxing week at a guest lodge. Quiet location to relax with scenic views of the mountains around Stowe. If you want peace and quiet, this is the place to be. Numerous hiking trails on the property, from easy to more difficult. Can't wait to come back for another stay!

Had dinner at the Bierhall which is down the road , we drove but there is a shuttle bus that can take you there and back. Room was very big and bed was huge and so comfy. Our only disappointment was we could not check in until 3pm and our luggage didn’t arrive until we rang reception for it to be brought up at 4pm. Read less

Our stay at the Trapp Family Lodge was a fun add-on to a New England business trip. Such a wonderful place, full of history and the love of all things outdoors. Our room was very clean, comfortable and spacious. The staff were friendly and helpful. But mostly there were interesting things to do on the resort grounds and in Stowe. We took advantage of the von Trapp maple syrup tour - very informative and fun. Ate at the von Trapp Brewery and Bierhall twice! And we went on the group hike to the chapel built by Werner von Trapp. There were many other activities we would have enjoyed at the Lodge if our stay had been longer. The town of Stowe was a delight, with a relaxed, friendly feel. Loved the shops and restaurants (Idletyme, Alchemist brewery, Stowe Mercantile, McCarthy’s diner) and the gorgeous setting. We will definitely return to the Trapp Family Lodge! Read less

We stopped here while visiting Stowe. What a magnificent setting and a must see for any Sound of Music fan! The front of the hotel is huge and offers a great view of the valley below. It is a very appealing destination you don’t want to miss!
