Von Trapps' Vt. lodge taps interest in new musical

Posted:
STOWE, Vt. (AP) -- -

 The hills of Vermont are alive with phones ringing at the Trapp Family Lodge. Yes, those Trapps.
   The singing family arrived in Stowe three-quarters of a century ago from Austria. And in the week since NBC's musical revival became a national topic of conversation, they're in high demand at the vacation lodge they started.
   The lodge offers wide views of the mountains that reminded the family of their homeland. Charm is high around Christmas, with trees and poinsettias as decor. Weiner Schnitzel and apple strudel are on the menu, as well as the family's beer.
   On Christmas Eve, guests get a special treat: The von Trapp family sings Christmas carols with the guests. But no songs from "The Sound of Music."
