A.B.C.’s of a “Noble” Hostel

“A” is for Astrid.

“B” is for many things such as; Broqueville, Belgian, Belle and Beautiful!

All of which collectively describes our lovely French speaking language student. But it’s not just that!

She is a real life European Peer! A Baroness! Which also begins with a “B”. Coincidence? I think not!

She’s a positively lovely lady to host in our humble Hostel.

Humble hostel did I say? Well, come to think of it, we have always run our establishment with the noblest of ideals. At least, we have always tried to!

It seems as if our efforts have finally begun to bear fruit! European Nobility have finally discovered us. The last Baroness I met was more than two decades ago when I was a guest at her hostel.

Actually, it was an upscale Inn that featured excellent cross-country skiing in the hills of Vermont. The Noble Inn was owned and operated by none other than the Baroness Maria Von Trapp. And if that name sounds familiar – it should!

You may recall the heroine of the true life story in the hit movie “The Sound of Music” was named Maria von Trapp.

If we have succeeded in any small measure in offering a bit of “Royal” treatment to our guests it might be said that we took our lead from a very Noble Source!

We are proud to host the Baroness Astrid de Broqueville at our hostel. She is not only downright gorgeous, but down to earth and a friend to all who have been fortunate enough to meet her.
