For the fans of the Von Trapp familly.

Nice place to visit. VonTrapp familly dwelling in North America. A little on the expensive side. Worth the detour.

If you are a rabid SOM fan, then you must make the pilgrimmage but in all honesty there is not much to see unless you are staying here. Supposedly then there are more activities. I was hoping they'd run more with the SOM theme, but it's really more a nice, cozy inn resting on its laurels and not really trying... More

Expectations were that we would see and experience the Von Trapp family home with history of their journey in America. Very disappointed that it was commercialized and they were very few items or remnants of the family. Would not recommend this for anybody. Very disappointing.

We are Sound of Music fans so we just wanted to see the old place. We did not stay there so this review only based on a walk around the grounds. Best views ever and the weather was beautiful. I didn't see much to the wine, cheese, bakery shop...not much there. The gift shops in basement of the main lodge... More

We were heading back to Canada from Waterbury through Stowe, saw the signs for the Lodge so on a whim took a brief detour to take a look. The Lodge is imposing and very ... well, not to my taste in architecture but I'm sure it was designed to impress. It does look like the grounds and the amenities are... More

If you look to your right on the hill you will see lambs and goats walking or laying in the grass. The Cemetary is peaceful with members of the Trapp family buried there. Land is beautiful in Summer. I need 12 people to go in with me on the time share, any takers? :)

Just walking around it was nice and peaceful but in the evenings going to the apartment from the main building it was too dark it needs more illumination.

My mom and I traveled here on a day trip in early June with my 3 young children as we worked on mom's "bucket list". The lodge is beautiful with breathtaking views of the scenic mountains. We took the Lodge Tour (only offered certain days - call ahead). Our guide, Chris, was informative and interesting. We were there about 2... More

Lodge --Beautiful rustic surroundings with Austrian flavor. Almost too quiet and reserved. Tried to make reservation on arrival at Desk, but Receptionists busy on phones/ did not acknowledge we were there ... so left.

The walking and hiking trails at Trapp Lodge offer a variety of difficulty to fit your style and comfort level. The trail map is very good and shows easy, moderate and difficult levels. Some trails are also for mountain bikers which is also very popular but you don't have bikers wizzing by hikers. Hiking is peaceful and so beautiful. The... More
