We got a Private tour with the Von Trappe son. Took us to the family cemetery at the front of the Resort and we got a lot of history from the "real deal." Then inside we watched a video of his Grandmother returning to Austria with Rupert back in the 1980's. Very interesting. Then to the Gift Shop for shopping... More

This is a wonderful and old school in feel place for outdoor adventuring. The cross country skiing is amazing the trail well kept and tons of fun spots to explore. There is a fun cabin in the woods to warm up and recharge before heading out again.

This place is in a gorgeous Vermont area and definitely worth the visit. We enjoyed our visit and decided to stay for lunch on the patio. We were not disappointed. The food was wonderful.

Even during summer, the Trapp Lodge is a special place to stay, since it is in very special place, large area, with tracking. The hotel is interesting and the food ...is super interesting!! Hope can go again some winter.

We enjoyed our tour of the Trapp Family Lodge. They gave us a history of the actual family and contrasted the movie vs. the real family's story. It was a nice presentation. Lunch at the Lodge was expensive but the views were inspiring.

Stowe, VT is the place where the Trapp Family escaped from Austria and settled to. The view from the lodge and brewery are amazing.

I always dreamed of visiting the Trapp Family Lodge and it didn't disappoint. You must take the history tour. Our guide was very good and humorous to boot. We got to meet Kristina Von Trapp at the end of the tour and she was lovely. The grounds of the hotel are just gorgeous!

Every summer the Trapp Family Lodge presents concerts with world renowned artists concertizing in the fields adjoining the Lodge. The setting is spectacular with the Green Mountains of Vermont in the background. Everyone brings their own chairs, blankets and picnic baskets and stakes out a location on the great lawn in front of the stage. What a way to spend... More
