On your tour through New England, you’ll live out your Sound of Music dreams and experience a slice of Austria in this little corner of the USA. As you stay two nights at the Von Trapp Family House, you’ll notice the resort is designed like a typical Austrian ski lodge, with vaulted ceilings, a bierhall and kaffehause, and a warm, homely atmosphere inside.
You can amble through the lush countryside on hiking trails, take rural wagon and sleigh rides, and explore cross-country skiing routes. You’ll enjoy an indoor and outdoor pool, several restaurants, and a fitness club on-site. During your stay, you may even meet one of the children or grandchildren of the original family, such as Johannes, who runs the Lodge and is the youngest of the original Trapp children. The lodge hosts a working farm raising Scottish Highland cattle, pigs, chickens, and fresh vegetables to be used in the on-site restaurants. The farm also creates its own produce, such as maple syrup and Austrian-style beers. With the lush countryside, coupled with the quaint European-style lodge with its little farm, one could for a moment believe they really were in a quiet corner of the Alps.
Take your Sound of Music adventure and discover the vibrant beauty of New England’s Fall Foliage.
