The History: What Is the Venue’s Story?

After leaving Austria the von Trapp Family settled in the United States. In 1942, the von Trapp family purchased a farmhouse in Stowe, Vermont. This became their new home, and they started a farm. The family engaged in various activities, including maple sugaring and dairy farming. The idea of turning their home into a lodge was born when guests started to inquire about staying on the property. In 1950, the Trapp Family Lodge officially opened as a modest, 27-room mountain resort. 

Over the years, the lodge underwent expansions and developments. The family added facilities to accommodate guests and enhance the lodge’s offerings. Now the property is known not only for its connection to the von Trapp family, but also for its stunning setting in the Vermont mountains!

Trapp Family Lodge offers endless opportunities for outdoor adventures, providing guests with a variety of exciting activities to enjoy throughout the wedding weekend. We pride ourselves on our ability to cater to couples with weddings of all sizes, whether they’re planning an intimate gathering or a grand affair with over 200 guests!
