About the Trapp Family Lodge
The Lodge was started by the Von Trapp family, and is still family owned! They brought a little bit of Austria to the mountains of Vermont, with the goal of creating a stunning year round retreat. The unique combination of upscale amenities and outdoor space makes this the perfect place to host a wedding.

The Trapp Family Lodge sits on a huge piece of land in Vermont’s remote mountains, so you have several spots to choose from for your ceremony and reception!
