– The tour begins with an overview of the von Trapp family history (actual vs movie version) discussion of the property’s history and the family’s early years in America. View a documentary film of Maria von Trapp’s memories during her final visit to her former home in Salzburg, Austria. Finish your tour with a viewing of the Documentary “The Real Maria”. Shop in their Austrian Gift Shop and have your souvenir signed by one of the Trapp Family members, to take home.

We’ll then enjoy free time in Stowe Village for lunch on your own.  Browse the shops of this charming village with its “most photographed” church steeple.   Find out how two childhood friends turned a $5.00 correspondence course into a very successful ice cream business.  Tour Ben & Jerry’s Ice Cream Factory and learn the manufacturing process and taste the delicious samples!

After a lovely visit in the village, we’ll return to the lodge for Afternoon tea. This evening our dinner will be a buffet in the new “Bierhall” overlooking the brewery where they make varieties of Trapp Family craft beers!
