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.

Amazing unit with amazing views of the valley below. One of the best I've ever had. Enjoyed every day there. Had to cut it back one day for deep cleaning as a result of COVID. I found the mattress a little soft and I had a sore back until I could get home, otherwise no problems.

The Trapp Family Lodge never disappoints. Food, drinks, service, hospitality are all top notch. Always a relaxing, fun trip. We attended a wine tasting and the Oktoberfest at the brewery and had so much fun. The foliage and grounds are always immaculate.

There seems to be a lot to nit-pick about Trapp Lodge, but I still really like it. Located on the side of a mountain, looking out over the valley, the Trapp Lodge is quite a unique experience. It's not squeezed in to an area with a lot of like resorts, in fact it's not "squeezed into" anything- there are hundreds of acres surrounding the property and every turn offers a great vista. We just got home from an early fall visit and got to enjoy many miles of there hiking trails, as well as just sitting , relaxing and taking in the views. We stopped in at the Bier Hall the first night and had a great casual meal and a few of the fresh brews. The beers are more the Austrian Lager to Pilsner varieties which is a nice change of pace from the IPA-IIPA offerings that at are offered down on the access road. Our food was casual and delicious, service was great, and much like the rest of the resort (And all of Stowe) the covid precautions made us feel safe. The only other meals we had on property was breakfast each day. It's just so much easier to walk downstairs for breakfast rather than getting in the car. Once again, food was fresh and delicious. Service was a little wanting over the weekend, but Monday was professional. Oh, and the views! Interesting to see the clouds below us on a sunny morning while we lingered over an extra cup of coffee. Room was nice, a bit sparse, but I think it was handicapped accessible, so perhaps that caused the lack of a dresser. We managed just fine, and the balcony was a nice place to enjoy an afternoon drink, Once again, the views! It's not the nicest property in the area, but is priced right compared to the ultra high end offerings. I'll be back. Read less
