Then it's only a short drive to Stow unch at the famous Von Trapp Lodge. The Bavarian-style lodge was established by Maria Von Trapp of"Sound of Music" fame. After WWII, Maria made her home in this tiny alpine village because it reminded her of her native Austria. Following lunch we are in for a treat with a guided "History Tour of the Family" to learn the difference between the movie, and the REAL Von Trapp Story as told to us by a family member. The charming lodge is still operated by the Von Trapp family and enjoys one of the most scenic ' views in all Vermont.
