Just like Austria...

Yesterday Chris took me to the Trapp Family Lodge in Stowe, Vermont.   Thanks to Rogers and Hammerstein we are all familiar with Captain von Trapp and the story of his seven children and late wife.   
The Sound of Music was well received in my household, and is a family favorite.  However, as familiar with the story and the songs as I was, I found I was quite unfamiliar with the rest of the story of Georg and Maria von Trapp and their family of singing children.   Turns out (maybe you already knew) that after they toured the United States, they settled in Stowe Vermont as it reminded them of the scenery in Austria and Switzerland.   
The Trapp Family Lodge is now a high class, yet very cozy hotel overlooking the most beautiful Vermont mountain side.   We enjoyed some lovely Austrian and Vermont inspired dishes at the Bakery/Deli/Brewery, and also a flight of their Trapp Lager. 

The view, amazing; the foot, scrumptious; the company, perfect.
