“An Austrian-inspired resort, the Trapp Family Lodge has been owned and operated by the Von Trapp family, the same family featured in ‘The Sound of Music,’ for decades. It sits on 2,500 [acres] in an area that’s about as close as you can get to the Alps on the U.S. East Coast as you’ll get. … Rooms are Bavarian-style and include shared or private balconies with mountain views, whirlpool tubs, and flat-screen cable TVs. The suites also have wood-burning stoves or fireplaces, and multi-bedroom villas with kitchens are available too.”
