Be prepared to be pleased with the experience and vastness of their lodge. There are so many things to do and see. The Family is very friendly and helpful. They make you feel like part of the family as well.
I love Austria and "The Sound of Music", so I was delighted when my husband surprised me with a booking here. We stayed for 4 nights during the peak of the fall leaf "popping". We were blessed with perfect weather and we enjoyed the amazing breakfast on the patio every morning. The staff at the lodge are very friendly and helpful. We also had dinner there one evening and it was nice to have authentic European cooking. The food is very good and the service is excellent. We also took part in the Von Trapp Family History tour, which I highly recommend, even if you are not a big fan of the musical. My husband found the military history to be very interesting. The documentary film is excellent, too. This was the highlight of an amazing fall get-away trip to New England.
We own a timeshare week in the TFL Guest Houses. We love our home away from home, on the side of the mountain. Stowe is such a great place, especially the Recreation Path, as we brought our new e-bikes this trip and rode on it several times. Great places to eat, and sightsee! And, our weather was amazing this year!
The Trapp Lodge is a beautiful lodge in a beautiful location. Unfortunately, the customer service was poor and disrespectful. We enjoyed the pictures and history associated with the lodge. The hiking was also good.
Husband & I had a wonderful two night stay. Started with lunch at the Bierhall, sitting outside on a glorious day. The server was truly glad to see us and was very helpful with our selections. The view was magnificent & the food delicious! The following days were fantastic, everything from our modern room, the meals, the friendly employees all made us feel very pampered. The setting is spectacular and the cows, sheep and beautiful flowers added to the joy of our adventure. We will definitely return!
My seven year old daughter and I stopped for a quick stay en route to Boston. It is a hidden gem with spectacular views and friendly, accommodating staff. The breakfast was delicious. The brewery restaurant and gift shop were fun too.
This is a great place in an awesome location! If you like to get away from it all & become one with nature, then this is the place for you. We stayed in a guest house which was perfectly situated on the mountain side with an amazing view. The units are of solid construction. Very quiet, peaceful & comfortable. They were extremely well stocked with more than everything that we needed for the week. The quaint town of Stowe is 5 minutes away & scenic drives abounding in every direction. The property is huge with plenty of hiking & things to see. Here you can just relax & destress or experience any outdoor activity that your heart desires!
Overall, the grounds and facility were lovely as always. We’ve visited there before but had never stayed as we did this time for two nights in early Spring (“mud season” or low-season) just as a get-away and to meet our friend’s colleague in Stowe. The food in the Main Dining Room was a little disappointing for dinner. 4 very overcooked dinners was a surprise. We’ll forgive it despite the big expense ($275)—- as the Kaffeehaus and BierHall were terrific food, pricing and quality. Beers? All excellent. Overall, we will always love this place, the history of it and the care in which they pay attention to details.

If you eat at the Trapp Lodge, you pay for the convenience of eating where you are (presumably) staying. (At $23 per person, I did not find the breakfast buffet to be worth it at all. I have a serious food allergy and while the staff were helpful, my options were severely limited. My husband could eat everything, but agreed that the cost was too much for what was offered.) The Bierhall is great, but expensive. The views are wonderful, but you really need a balcony with a good view to appreciate it. If you want a balcony, avoid the 4th floor rooms. Additionally, since there are no elevators that go to the 4th floor rooms, avoid these if you have mobility issues. The staff is wonderful, and the ambiance is charming. Easy access to outdoor activities is nice, but might not justify the cost of staying if you don’t plan on hiking, biking, etc. …
