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 love the villas, even the 20+ something grands. Have been going for many years, began in the Guest Houses. Stowe has kept its small village appeal thanks to the tough Stowe Board rules. Many old, quaint ski resorts have turned to dust. Not Stowe.

Beautiful location with lots of amenities. Lots of beautiful hidden cozy areas in the lodge for families to gather around a fire place or just hang out and read a book. The indoor pool was well maintained and they did have a large outdoor spa

Since we can’t go to Europe, we came to the Trapp lodge instead.We were not disappointed. The beautiful scenery and grounds of the lodge are breathtaking. The staff were outstanding and helpful. There weren’t too many restaurants open in town so we went to the beer hall. The food is delicious and beer cold. We took the trail to the chapel and looked all around the grounds. Unbelievable. The indoor pool was open and was a nice break. The workers are very helpful with the COVID requirements. If you need a couple relaxing days, head to the Trapp lodge. The hills are alive. Read less

Vermont is beautiful and anyone who loves the outdoors will love this resort. It has plenty to do or not to do and just relax in the beautiful setting. We walked on the many trails, saw the highland cattle and sheep and went for lunch at the beer hall.

What a great family vacation we had this year. Outstanding! I have been coming to Trapp since the mid-80’s and this was by far my best visit. The highland cattle tour was great. The prime rib dinner at the lodge was very good. We cannot wait to return next year!
