Trapp Family Lodge

Stowe, Vermont

Virgin rating

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.

Be prepared to be pleased with the experience and vastness of their lodge. There are so many things to do and see. The Family is very friendly and helpful. They make you feel like part of the family as well.

We own a timeshare week in the TFL Guest Houses. We love our home away from home, on the side of the mountain. Stowe is such a great place, especially the Recreation Path, as we brought our new e-bikes this trip and rode on it several times. Great places to eat, and sightsee! And, our weather was amazing this year!

The Trapp Lodge is a beautiful lodge in a beautiful location. Unfortunately, the customer service was poor and disrespectful. We enjoyed the pictures and history associated with the lodge. The hiking was also good.

Husband & I had a wonderful two night stay. Started with lunch at the Bierhall, sitting outside on a glorious day. The server was truly glad to see us and was very helpful with our selections. The view was magnificent & the food delicious! The following days were fantastic, everything from our modern room, the meals, the friendly employees all made us feel very pampered. The setting is spectacular and the cows, sheep and beautiful flowers added to the joy of our adventure. We will definitely return! Read less

My seven year old daughter and I stopped for a quick stay en route to Boston. It is a hidden gem with spectacular views and friendly, accommodating staff. The breakfast was delicious. The brewery restaurant and gift shop were fun too.
