Trapp Family Lodge
700 Trapp Hill Rd
Stowe, Lamoille County, Vermont
This mountain resort is owned and operated by descendants of the Trapp Family. The family is known to most people through the movie "The Sound of Music." The family established the lodge in 1947.
Baron Georg von Trapp and his wife Maria settled with their family in Vermont in 1942. After the Baron died, the family expanded and operated their home as a 27-room ski lodge.
The lodge was destroyed by fire on 20 December 1980, forcing 45 people, including Baroness von Trapp, to flee in their nightclothes. The body of a 30-year-old guest was found later in the rubble.
A new Austrian-style lodge with 93 rooms was opened in 1983.
The Lodge offers a mountain biking trail, gym, tennis court, and sleigh rides. It has a restaurant, access to cross country skiing and maple sugaring.
