Mark has never been to Vermont before so I had fun showing him the views and some of the things I did as a kid. One of those things is we used to do was spend a weekend at the Trapp Family Lodge, in Stowe, with a bunch a relatives. During the day I would cut-out little paper things for my aunts classroom by a pool in the woods. Later we would take over a common area near our rooms for a little party before dinner. Anyone that happened by was welcome to join in. It was fun. Now we all stay down in the village closer to the car show and the many restaurants and shops.
Trapp Family Lodge is an Austrian-style mountain resort run by the von Trapp family of "Sound of Music" fame. It is situated on 2,400 acres, that include hiking, biking, and cross-country skiing trails. My favorite part though is the gardens. They have both decorative around the lodge areas and a cutting garden & greenhouse on a hillside. The view from this garden is just amazing.
On the other side of the road is the stage where they do Concerts in the Meadow on Sunday evenings. With the mountains in the background, wouldn't it make a lovely spot for a wedding?
There are more pictures of the gardens over at A Roll a Week. Please take a peak.
