Trapp Family Lodge
The Trapp Family Lodge is a beautiful hotel set atop a peak in Vermont's Green Mountains. The views from just about any of the rooms are fantastic, and at night you can see thousands of stars. This is a great place for anyone who loves the outdoors but doesn't want to "rough it." The hotel is a European-style luxury resort through and through, set in the middle of 1,500 acres of Vermont wilderness including miles and miles of hiking, snowshoeing and cross-country ski trails. They offer guided hikes, ski lessons, sleigh rides and ski and snowshoe rentals if you don't have your own equipment.
The food at the hotel is also very good. They have a nice piano bar, an upscale restaurant and bakery/deli that's great for lunch. They also make their own beer and have a brewery set up on the premises.
Hotel staff is very friendly and helpfull.
Unique Quality: The Trapp Family Lodge is owned and operated by the von Trapp family of "The Sound of Music" fame. They offer interesting historical tours and often have family member onsite to greet guests.
Review by a OneTime.com User from Grosse Pointe, Michigan
Love it! My family has been going there EVERY summer for almost 20 years! I have not been there for 2 years and miss it dearly! There is so much to do - ride along the Mountain path, shop, attend a concert in the meadow. Hiking, fishing, boating - - - the list goes on!!!! My family has a timeshare and ABSOLUTELY love, love, love the place! I recommend it for everyone!
last visit on August, 2003.
Another Great Place to Stay!
We didn't stay at the Lodge, but enjoyed dinner here. We spent quite a few hours on the property before and after dinner. We took tons of pictures in front of the Lodge, it was all lit with tiny blinking white lights.
The Lobby Area is full of information about the Trapp Family, the inspiration for the classic musical and movie, which interested all six of us. There were some great scenes from "The Sound of Music".
There is a Library room that housed general seating for relaxing around a fire, with games and puzzles everywhere. It seemed like a nice family environment.
I think we may try this Lodge next time we're in Stowe.
A Nice Place To Visit But Couldn't Afford to Stay
The Trapp family first started welcoming guests to their 27-room lodge in the summer of 1950. Thirty-three years later the family opened its doors to a new 93-room resort with the same country charm of the original lodge. The Lodge continues to be owned and operated by the Trapp family, the inspiration for the classic musical and movie "The Sound of Music."
Unique Quality: We couldn't afford to stay here but we had dinner here one night. For a fixed price you may choose between a "Five-course" dinner which includes appetizer, soup, salad, entree, dessert and coffee or a "Three-course" dinner which includes entree and a choice of two other courses.
The Trapp Family Lodge
Unique Quality: A charming, all-inclusive, FAMILY resort. Bring the kids. But, if you go in the summer, be prepared -- no AC since the weather is generally cool enough not to need it.
The food in the main dining room was very good, but could have been better.
The service comes with plenty of gemutlichkeit.
Be sure to take the kids to the Austrian Tea Room for a meal. The food will definitely be to their liking and everyone will enjoy watching the long-horned Scottish Highland cattle grazing in the field nearby.
