At the Trapp Family Lodge Outdoor Center the question isn’t what to do. The question is, where do you start? From sunrise to sunset, and in every season, there is an invigorating adventure or relaxing activity waiting for you at every turn. The Trapp Family Lodge is a 2,500 acre mecca for the outdoor and nature enthusiast. In the Winter there is cross country skiing, back country skiing and snowshoeing. In the Summer there is mountain biking, disc golf, hiking,Nordic walking and even concerts in our meadow. The lists go on and on for people of all ages!

We have been clients since before the old lodge burned in the 1980's. The new lodge is modern to a fault without the sense and spirit of the original lodge. The rooms are adequate and modern; but the soul of the Von Trapp legacy is...More

It was fun seeing and hearing about the Von Trapp family in VT. You must stop in the brewery, beautiful building a view.

Going to the LODGE and seeing where the patriots called the VonTrapps actually lived and shared their love of music with others, is nothing short of amazing. The folks here appear to really feel honored to work in such a historic place.

Been going here since the early 80s. This resort is one of the finest in America in terms of going the extra mile for guests. It is a great value and a great facility!
