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.

Recommend for Sound of Music fans, but interesting for others as well. The real history of the Von Trapps and their lodge. Tour guide was knowledgeable and entertaining. We learned so much and the lodge is lovely. Met grandson of Maria and he was welcoming and gracious. Definitely reserve a table at the bier hall for after!

We like to hike and walk so Trapp is great for that. Have been visiting there since 1986.it always feels like our second home. We really missed going in 2020. We did not find the cows this year. it would be great if there were instructions for the heat and A/C. not easy to figure which thermostat to use.

We've been coming here at least once yearly for more than a decade and now own two weeks in the guest houses, a winter week and a summer week. Trapp has become our home away from home. Skiing, hiking, and mountain biking is top notch and the staff is friendly and aims to please.

Charming but a bit outdated, with heavy and dark furniture. Bathroom was too small, very worn out, not well lit, and lacked storage space. We understand that rooms are being updated but ours was not one of them. The price was rather steep and a high resort fee was added, which we did not fully use. The grounds were well maintained as part of the resort fee, but the overall price was on the high side. Excellent history presentation daily, about the Trapp family. Read less
