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.

Been coming for 15 years and same rugs/furniture badly need replacement -see photo - or at least refurbishing. Restaurant ok but pricey. More and more trails though and very good grooming. Bathrobes now need to be requested?

We have owned this Guest House week for 21 years; it's become our "home-away-from-home". We have admired and continue to treasure the beauty of Von Trapps' Family Lodge and Mountain, Cross-Country skiing in the peace of the woods and enjoying the indoor pool, excellent dining and wonderful music; these are only small parts of the overwhelming enjoyment of this place. Our kids grew up experiencing the Guest House and then the Villa, starting in 2005. The experience has left its mark on them as well. Our daughter loves this Lodge and Guest House vacation home so much that she purchased a Guest House week for her and her family. Our son and his wife enjoy visits with us as often as possible, even though they live half way across the country. If you are looking for a great place to visit, or own, I strongly suggest you take the time to visit The Trapp Family Lodge, experience the atmosphere and amenities and find, perhaps, what we did: An enjoyable second home.

My fiancé and I decided to enjoy a trip to the Trapp Family Lodge as a Christmas gift to each other. Beautiful surroundings, outstanding rooms, immaculately clean, outdoor activities included cross country ski lessons, and a snowshoe tour to the family chapel followed by outdoor hot tub and therapeutic massage.....Heaven.

I couldn't be happy without my annual Trapp trip. I had some minor issues that were taken care of immediately, as they always are. I like the quietness of being out of the main skiing areas with the convenience of easily getting to the mountain.

The villas at the Trapp Lodge are such a unique setting with so many amenities and such beautiful views. We will go back every year. The snowshoeing, cross country skiing and hiking are the best around. The bakery has the best cinnamon buns We’ve ever had And the staff at the brewery went out of their way to cater to us.
