Why Stay At The Trapp Family Lodge & Villas
Surrounded by countryside as picture-perfect as Maria von Trapp's Austrian homeland, this Vermont escape brings Euro-style digs to the Stowe mountains.
Owned by the family made famous in the Sound of Music, the bucolic Trapp family home-away-from-home has all the countryside appeal of its owners' European roots—minus the transatlantic flight. Set in the heart of Stowe, the rich oak-paneled lodge has as many accommodation types as wildflower varieties that grow on the property. There's the 96-room Alpine Lodge for couples seeking convenient, simple digs; 100 two-bedroom Guest House Chalets ideal for families; and 18 three-bedroom Villas spread out on 61 acres for those in search of valley views and plenty of space. Dining options abound as well: try the candlelit Main Dining Room, a more formal option that serves Trapp Lager steamed littleneck clams and lemon mustard grilled pork chops, or head to the laid-back lounge for Austrian sausage and weeknight jazz performances.
Musical fans can get their fix at the lodge's Thursday night showing of the Sound of Music in the St. George's Hall theater, which accommodates more than 100 people.
Spend an evening outdoors during the summer at the lodge's Concerts in the Meadow series. Headliners include the Vermont Symphony (tickets from $11 to $30).
Arrive at Burlington International Airport (BTV), which is approximately 35 miles (50 minutes) from the resort.700 Trapp Hill Road, Stowe, Vermont, United States
