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.

Great rooms, friendly staff and a beautiful setting. Lots of resorts to choose from but the "little bit of Austria" at Trapp makes it a stand out. The dining choices are varied and the on site brewery offers great selections. Plus you're in the middle of the forested mountains.

Wood detailing was very impressive in our unit. Great working wood fireplace. An easy drive from our home in Canada, 3.5 hrs. Very important if we need medical assistance to get back home. Handicap equipped bathroom, a shower chair would be a nice addition.

While planning my wedding at the lodge, Zack at the front desk was such a huge help with room planning for my guests. He was so helpful with all of my numerous requests. Cecilia who manages the bar was also amazing. She really took the time to sit down and help us select our wines and liquors for our reception. Holly

We are Trapp Family Lodge Guest House owners and have been for years. In fact, we have added weeks over the years and now own weeks in all three villages. Love this place and the wonderful Trapp family and all the staff. This is our little piece of heaven in the hills of Vermont.

We loved our stay. The hotel and property are gorgeous. The rooms are clean and lovely and comfortable. A real treat. Fantastic mountain views. Love the history of the Trapp Family and the way it is lovingly displayed throughout the lodge. Loved everything about it!!
