Honoring the Past
When the von Trapp family first made Luce Hill their home in the summer of 1942, they forged a partnership with the land—one that allowed them to feed their family from crops they grew and animals they raised, while sustainably managing the land.
In this spirit of cultivation and caring, Trapp Family Lodge has joined with Stowe Land Trust to establish a legacy that protects the future of the working landscape in the Stowe region.
Preserving the Future
Three generations of von Trapps have set their roots in Stowe, owning and managing Trapp Family Lodge, continuing the tradition of active farming and forestry, and providing unparalleled opportunities for visitors to get out and enjoy the mountains and valleys.
Continuing the family’s true pioneering spirit, Johannes von Trapp helped establish Stowe Land Trust 25 years ago, and through this commitment, the family has permanently conserved over 1,500 acres.
