From the moment we pulled onto the entrance for the Trapp Familly Lodge, I knew that Lauren and I were in for a truly special getaway. Even though we were surrounded by the rolling hills and luscious landscapes of Vermont for the entire drive up from New Hampshire, there was something more than the surrounding beauty that gave us that feeling. The property had a certain quality that we couldn’t quite put our fingers on, a “je ne sais quoi” if you will. Then we passed a sign on the way in that said it all: Welcome to the Trapp Family Lodge, a little bit of Austria a whole lot of Vermont. In a nutshell that was it. From the second we stepped foot on property we were transported into a whole other world where pampering and relaxation were the top priority. We sought out the Trapp Family Lodge because we were looking for a great romantic, pet friendly getaway and we found it in Vermont.
