The Trapp Family

The Trapp Family

One of the world's most famous families, the von Trapps are best known for their musical talents and the film, "The Sound of Music," which was adapted from Maria von Trapp's book, "The Story of the Trapp Family Singers," and found them millions of fans around the globe. In the 1940s, the von Trapp family moved to Stowe, Vt., where they ran a music camp when not touring the United States and Canada. The von Trapps first began welcoming guests to their 27-room lodge in 1950, a short time after patriarch, Georg von Trapp, died in 1947. The lodge ran successfully for another 33 years, when the family expanded it into a new 93-room lodge and resort. The 2,400-acre resort is still owned and operated by the von Trapp family today, and is infused with Austrian-style design and architecture in all 96 suites, 100 guest homes and 16 villas.
