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.

we would not recommend this tourist trap to anyone. It's not worth $450/night. Althought it's a gorgeous location on a Vermont mountain top in Stowe, we would not return,. Touristy and much too expensive. Public restrooms were dirty and disgusting on the first floor, most likely due to the droves of buses with tourists stopping by for photo ops and lodge tours. Felt more like a tourist trap than a historic lodge of the Trapp family. We did not have any meals at the Lodge so cannot comment on the quality of food or service. Lodge seems to be overdue for a facelift, especially the sleeping rooms. Read less

Wonderful lodge and grounds. We stayed for our anniversary and did hiking in the snow, walked to the beer hall which had great food and beer. Overall staff was amazing. We can not wait to return. Just for a longer stay next time.

I stumbled upon the Trapp Lodge as an option, booked a nice suite. We were excited and our expectations were met. A warm and friendly place, good food and activities. Plan on going again in the spring!
