"We hosted our rehearsal dinner, wedding ceremony, and wedding reception at Trapp Family Lodge in summer 2016 and the Lodge and staff made it a truly remarkable weekend. From the first visit through the week after our wedding, Jenna, the on-site coordinator, was accommodating, responsive, and understanding. Jenna went above and beyond to ensure that each event went well, that our guests were comfortable, and that all of our planning came together seamlessly. She responded to all of our emails quickly whether about an urgent request or small detail. Jenna is highly organized and made it easy to hand over the reigns both during the planning process and on our wedding weekend. I can't say enough about her professionalism and warmth. The Lodge is exceptionally lucky to have such a talented planner on staff!
Our planner's work alone is enough reason to host an event at Trapp, but beyond that we were also impressed by the venues, food, and other staff. The beauty of each of Trapp's gathering sites, especially the Concert Meadow and Wedding Tent, speaks for itself, but made our wedding truly unique. It was so special to host events outside, but the Mozart Room was also magically transformed for our rehearsal. Our guests spoke highly of the quality of their rooms (though they spent most of the weekend exploring outdoors) and the on-site villas were perfect for larger groups/small gatherings over the course of the weekend. Food was very important to us and after attending many weddings and tasting at other sties, we were resigned to poorly cooked meat, fishy fish, and bland appetizers. Trapp blew us away - the chicken was moist and well-cooked, the salmon was actually rare (as requested!), and they worked with us to do custom passed appetizers. The chef was very responsive to our comments after our tasting. The Lodge staff also worked with us to get special wines and beer. We truly have no reservation in recommending the Lodge as a wedding venue!" -Jane
Trapp Family Lodge offers a trail network of incomparable beauty and challenge. For either skaters or traditional, there are degrees of difficulty for skiers at all levels, while always in the midst of poetically pleasing vistas and views or the quiet serenity of the uncluttered forest. Not unlike Glenn Gould's offering of the Bach partitas and sonatas. The new Bierhall is a stunning addition to the total offering - food and drink to please the most discerning patrons. From my perspective I park the car on arrival and return to it upon departure - challenge, rest, relaxation, great food and drink all making for an unsurpassed experience.

"My husband and I got married here on June 11, 2016 and couldn't been happier with how the wedding weekend came together. From the moment guests arrived to check in, their stay throughout the week to check out they were taken care of with superb service. There is not a more beautiful setting for a perfect wedding weekend. Our wedding was originally scheduled for the Concert Meadow overlooking the mountains, but needed to be brought inside due to rain. Despite that hiccup the back up Mozart Room was stunning and the wedding went off without a hitch. The ceremony was tented in the Wedding Meadow and couldn't have been more magical. From the lighting to flowers to the excellent food and beverage and exceptional service, the reception was spot on and our guests loved every minute of the event. Jenna, the wedding coordinator, did an excellent job and was a pleasure to work with from the moment we first set a date. She ensured the wedding planning went smoothly from the onset and did a great job accounting for every last detail and ensuring the staff and vendors were aligned. As we were planning this from out of town, it was imperative to have a great partner in the planning process and she was that and more. Jenna really went over and beyond from helping to pick out linens and lighting to designing our menus and much more. The 8 month planning process coupled with Jenna's exceptional work culminated in a perfect wedding. Everything was exactly what we envisioned and more. Thank you Jenna for all your hard work and to everyone at Trapp for making our wedding exceptional." -Laura & Curtis
"You could not ask for a more epic setting for a perfect wedding weekend. This has got to be as good a venue as you can possibly find in Vermont. We hosted our wedding with the ceremony in the concert meadow, with the Green Mountains providing the perfect backdrop, before our guests moved across the street for the cocktail hour and reception by the open air wedding tent. The location itself is beautiful, expansive and well maintained, leading to a great feeling of privacy for the reception with the main lodge a short walk up the road. The food and beverage service was excellent and overall our guests were raving about what a great party we had. Jenna, the wedding coordinator, did a great job from the outset, helping to keep our planning well paced and communicating our needs to the staff and vendors. The process of planning started 13 months ago when we booked the weekend and she was there with us every step of the way. The end result was that everything turned out exactly how we wanted and allowed us to enjoy a perfect stress-free weekend with no last minute planning anxiety. Thank you Jenna for all your hard work, dedication and flexibility along the way in helping us create our perfect wedding day." - Phil & Jianna
"What a wonderful wedding weekend at the Trapp Family Lodge! The entire experience, from the first time we made contact with Jenna until we left the lodge, was first class and exceeded our expectations. We were very impressed and pleased with the event planning process, wedding reception venue, suite for my wife and I, guest rooms for family and friends, activities on the grounds, Sam and the bellmen team, and so much more that the Trapp Family Lodge offered. Many, many thanks for such a delightful experience at the Trapp Family Lodge." -Jordan and Christina Soncrant
"We could not have asked for more. We would frequently send ideas, requests, and questions and would receive timely responses. Trapp was very flexible and easy to work with. Jenna Emrich, our wedding coordinator, was fantastic. She was open to anything we had in mind and very very very helpful before and during the wedding. And the food! Great food, great beer, great service, and a beautiful location. Our wedding could not have been better!!" –Zachary
"Trapp Family Lodge was the perfect place for my wedding! Jenna did a wonderful job of coordinating all the details and was very responsive, answering all of our questions quickly.

"The lodge is such a beautiful venue for a wedding! Jenna the wedding coordinator was great to work with and they were very responsive to my specific food requests! I would absolutely recommend the lodge to anyone who is looking to get married in Stowe." -Olivia & David
"We had a lovely wedding weekend at Trapp Family Lodge. Our guests who chose to spend a night at the venue really enjoyed the convenience of staying at the venue where we were married. Both our parents stayed for the weekend and were really happy to be able to have a mini vacation while attending our wedding. The amenities offered are nice- especially the pool during the summer to keep kids entertained. The location is stunning - we had our ceremony in the Concert Meadow on a gorgeous summer day, and it was exactly what I was hoping for. The day before our wedding we hosted a Rehearsal Lunch in the gardens which was equally stunning. If you've dreamed about an outdoor wedding ceremony with a mountain backdrop, you should consider this venue!" - Renee & Peter
