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.

Love the guest house. Quiet vacation for a busy couple. These have been upgraded with AC, fresh bathrooms, new windows. We hiked in forest on the property: challenging and peaceful. Pools were clear and fun. Loved the hot tub after the hikes!

When we received an invitation to attend a wedding for a full weekend at the Van Trapp Lodge, we were overjoyed and thrilled. First, because we loved the couple getting married and wanted to share in their special day. Second, because our drama club had just performed The Sound of Music in March, we were more informed about the Van Trapp story. Our anticipation for coming to the lodge fueled us through the end of the school year until July when we came there. What a slice of Heaven exists there in the mountains of Vermont. The staff is super friendly and accommodating. The lodgings are wonderful-comfortable and elegant. Because we were there for the events of the wedding, we did not get to take advantage of the many facilities open to us. There is something for everyone, or even a beautiful library to just sit and read and occasionally glance out at the gorgeous landscape. It was truly a slice of Heaven and we considered ourselves fortunate to have have here. It is worth every penny. Read less

Aside from the poor conditions of the Trapp roads, this place is wonderful. I am in a newly refurbished unit that is handicapped accessible with a step in shower. The condition of the unit is excellent.
