My daughter and I stayed at the Trapp Family Lodge in honor of her lifelong (25 yrs old) love of The Sound of Music story. We were only able to stay one night but the stay far exceeded our expectations. The gardens were incredible. Tulips were at their peak.
The bakery is not to be missed. We didn't realize it was so far down the road but the walk helped us work off the croissants.
We hiked a couple of times and the paths were challenging enough so we felt like we had accomplished something when we got back to the Lodge.
Of course, we watched the short film about the real Maria who is featured all over the hotel in photos.
There was some confusion about the price of the dinner we had. When I booked with the hotel, I was told I needed to make a reservation for dinner. I did that at a later date and was told about a prix fixe 3-course dinner. The waiter told us about it too but when I got the bill, it was priced a la carte. At check-out, they explained that I hadn't pre-booked the meal plan as I had thought. OK, whatever, but the price difference was significant. The meal, however, was delicious.
I had wanted this to be a special mother-daughter trip in honor of her graduation from Penn and it was that.
