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.
