This place is worth the long drive to get there. We didn't stay at the Trapp Lodge but will plan on a future visit at some time soon.

Well worth the visit.. It would have been nice if we could have gotten lodging there but they were booked.

We really wanted to take the Historical Tour at the Trapp Family Lodge and we were not disappointed. A family member gives the tour and we had Sam Von Trapp one of the grandsons of Maria and the Captain. We learned the many things that were correct in the play/movie and numerous things that were not. The tour was advertised... More

The views are outstanding and one can see why the Trapp Family chose this place to build when they arrived from Austria. Gorgeous.

We spent Saturday afternoon, sipping on various types of craft beers, while sitting on a deck, listening to a musical trio, who entertained all afternoon - all this with the mountain range as a backdrop

Took the historical tour of the Von Trapp family lodge, followed by lunch at their cafe and a mild hike thorugh their grounds. It was an interesting tour if you are a fan of the Sound of Music, otherwise just go to enjoy the hiking trails, which are easy / moderate.

We just walked around the grounds. We did not stay at the lodge. We wanted to go on the trails but it is $10.00 a person if you are not a lodge guest. Very interesting with great views. You can also go inside the lodge and view some of the family pictues.

You have to book this thru the lodge, but it is a separate contractor. About 1/2 hour over the grounds of the Lodge. You get a little history from the driver who is very capable and the open carriage is extremely comfortable and clean. Times are limited so call. Private rides are available on Tues only. Pair this with lunch... More

The outdoor concert offered by Stowe Performing Arts, was absolutely a pleasant surprise. I may make it part of my annual visit to Stowe. It was so nice to see all age groups enjoying the beautiful venue along with their picnic baskets and coolers. I will come back. The show Quinn Sullivan, a very talented young man. Looking forward to... More

The only reason I gave this 4 star instead of 5 was the price $18 for anyone not staying at the lodge is to high. That being said I thoroughly enjoyed the tour from start to finish. Being able to see the family cemetery and get a story behind each individual the documentary, differences from the movie and seeing and... More
