DAY 1

The mountains of Vermont are alive with the sounds of the holiday season and the magnificent beauty that one comes to expect from a visit to the Austrian-inspired Trapp Family Lodge. We will depart Central Pennsylvania and make appropriate meal and rest stops along the way en route to Stowe, Vermont for an awe-inspiring getaway with stunning mountain views, old world charm and impeccable service. Upon arrival in Stowe, we will check in at the Trapp Family Lodge (800-826-7000) for an unforgettable three-night stay. The Trapp Family Lodge amenities include an indoor swimming pool and sauna, a fitness center, on-site restaurant and cocktail lounge, trails for hiking, and complimentary wireless internet access. Guest rooms feature coffeemaker, hair dryer, iron and ironing board, flat screen television, turn down service and complimentary Wi-Fi. Dinner this evening will be included in the Main Dining Room, with the remainder of the evening to enjoy the delightful surroundings and amenities at the Lodge.

DAY 2

Wake to a hearty, country breakfast buffet included this morning at the Lodge. Afterwards, we will meet our local guide who will lead us on a tour of area attractions including the Morse Maple Sugar Farm where we will learn about the process of tree to table maple sugaring as we tour the sugar house. Morse farm boasts 200 years and eight generations of providing that delicious syrup we like to add to our meals. View multimedia displays in a real woodshed theatre, stroll along the natural trail leading to the trees where it all begins, delight in samples of the syrup, jams and jellies, tour the Vermont Farm Life Museum housing whimsical carved folk like characters, and of course visit the gift shop to purchase some Vermont goodies and craft items to share with or gift to family and friends. At the conclusion of our visit, we will board the motorcoach and travel to Montpelier for a tour of the Vermont State House. One of the oldest and most well-preserved of our nation's state capitols, its House and Senate chambers are the oldest active legislative halls in the U.S. that have preserved their original interiors. The State House is an architectural gem and a remarkable piece of living history, and as you stroll through its magnificent hallways take notice to the artwork present throughout the building as it is some of the state's most important works of art. Following our walking tour, we will have time for lunch on our own in the State House Café. Our final stop on our tour today will be at the Cabot Cheese Annex. Here, we will have time to browse the fantastic selection of Cabot products, sample their award-winning cheeses, and purchase many other Vermont specialty foods. Additionally, take time to visit their neighboring shops to buy some Lake Champlain Chocolates, browse the Danforth Pewter store or stop by the new Smugglers' Notch Distillery tasting room. This is a great stop to mark a few holiday gifts off your list for those hard-to-buy-for people. Next, we will return to the Trapp Family Lodge to enjoy afternoon tea with your fellow passengers and other Trapp Lodge guests. Dinner this evening will be included at the Lodge in the new Bierhall overlooking the brewery where a variety of Trapp Family craft beers are produced. The remainder of the evening is yours to relax, unwind within the warmth and beauty of the Austrian-inspired architecture that surrounds you.

DAY 3

A bountiful breakfast is once again included at the Lodge before we enjoy an educational and entertaining Trapp History Talk beginning with an overview of the family history, actual versus movie version, a discussion of the property's history and the family's early years in America. A documentary film, The Real Maria, enlightens viewers about Maria von Trapp's memories during her final visit to her former home in Salzburg, Austria. Afterwards, browse their Austrian Gift Shop and perhaps have one of your purchased souvenirs signed by one of the Trapp family members to keep as a special memento of your stay at the Lodge. Next, we will board the motorcoach to spend some free time strolling through the charming Stowe Village where you can enjoy lunch on your own, browse the quaint shops and perhaps take a moment to document your visit with a picture of its "most photographed" church steeple. Following our time in Stowe, we will board our motorcoach for a drive to Ben & Jerry's ice Cream Factory to learn about how two childhood friends turned a $5.00 correspondence course about ice cream making from Penn State into a very sweet business venture that has reached worldwide popularity. While at the factory we will learn about their manufacturing process that produces approximately 350,000 pints of ice cream per day and, of course, taste some delicious samples. After our tour and time to visit the gift shop, we will return to the Trapp Lodge for Afternoon Tea or time to relax and unwind. A Three-Course Dinner will be included tonight in the Lodge's Main Dining Room with the remainder of the night to soak in the warm surroundings.
