New for 2020…Enjoy a taste of Austria and a lot of Vermont on this beautiful 3 day tour combining mountains, lakes, rolling countryside and history! Day 1:
Our travels bring us mid-afternoon to our countryside resort, The Golden Eagle Resort, in the historic village of Stowe. This sprawling totally renovated property offers quick access to the charming downtown shops and restaurants, scenic views of Stowe, and complete resort facilities. Enjoy the indoor or outdoor heated pools, fitness center, indoor ping pong, pool table and more. Tonight we enjoy a fabulous sit down dinner at the Austrian inspired Von Trapp Lodge Dining Room. (Dinner included)
After our country breakfast we set out for Burlington, a city known for its deep historic roots dating back to the Revolutionary War. Here we visit the Shelburne Museum. Folk art, impressionist paintings, circus collections and even a steamboat…its all here on 45 acres of beautifully landscaped grounds amidst historic buildings. After lunch we head to the shores of Lake Champlain to board the Spirit of Ethan Allen for our 90 minute sightseeing cruise. Enjoy breathtaking views of the city, the Green Mountains of Vermont and the New York Adirondacks.
Back on land we will have time to enjoy Church Street Marketplace--Vermont’s award-winning open air mall with over 100 places to shop and dine nestled in historic architecture. Early evening we will return to our hotel in Stowe, Vermont. (Breakfast included)
After our country breakfast we head to the Von Trapp Lodge to enjoy a history tour. Our guide will share stories of the real Maria and the Von Trapp Family, whom inspired the movie, Sound of Music. Relieve their story as they settled in Stowe, Vermont in the 1940’s because its sweeping mountain vistas were reminiscent of their beloved Austria. There will be time to enjoy lunch in downtown Stowe before returning home. (Breakfast included)
