"We've been doing family reunions now for about 15 years... this was the best vacation ever because not only did my kids have a great time, I did too. For the first time in a long time, I truly felt like I had been on vacation. Thanks for all your hard work."

"Everyone at Smuggs did a great job in hosting my dad's 80th birthday reunion and our whole gang had a terrific time... It's not often I get a big thumbs up from Zach, our "hard-to-please" 16 year old, but he was totally engaged in all the activities he participated in... especially the mountain boarding & Teen Center. From the outstanding units... to the Saturday night group dinner at the Hearth & Candle, everything was great." Levine Family, Bellevue WA

Reconnect, reunite and recreate.
Smugglers' has hosted thousands of family gatherings since our beginning in 1956. We have the experience in helping families plan all the details to ensure a successful and fun reunion.

Smugglers' is a community of families, many of whom come back again and again just to be part of the fantastic fun and excitement. Your family will enjoy this atmosphere where they feel comfortable and at home.

Nature has given us a scenic wonderland of jagged mountains, rivers, streams and deep water lakes. Cresting at 2,162 feet is spectacular Smugglers' Notch Pass with a notorious history as a smuggling route between the United States and Canada. The caverns, trails and magical mountains surrounding the Notch invite exploration.

Smugglers' Notch Resort has been recognized as one of the top destinations in North America for reunions for several years in a row! The reasons are simple:

 • Location, location, location!
Smugglers' is right in the heart of Vermont's Green Mountains. We're 30 miles from Burlington, considered "one of the most livable cities in the country", and from Lake Champlain, the "Sixth Great Lake." This is recreation, shopping and antiquing heaven!

 • Everything's right in our Mountain Resort Village!
Park your car and you're home! Boundless Winter activities from skiing and snowboarding, to cross-country and snowshoeing, from tube sliding and ice skating to swimming and hot tubbing, from dining and entertainment to rest and relaxation. Spring and Summer bring hiking and biking, tennis and golf clinics, watersliding and canoeing. Fall brings the best of Summer with the added benefit of brilliant foliage! And in the Summer, Fall and Winter we offer award-winning children's programs and endless family activities.

 • Reunion Planning made easy.
We understand the level of detail that can go into planning a reunion. Finding the time to coordinate all the details when you're working or busy with the kids is difficult. So Smugglers' is ready to help with all your planning and travel needs. Just give us a call and we'll do the rest!

"We spent two years preparing and talking to Smugglers' Notch before the reunion [over 100 family members]... and their staff was phenomenal. What we needed, they made happen."
Marie Hill, Lynnfield, MA

"I highly recommend other families give a family reunion a try. It is very fulfilling and I would recommend Smugglers' Notch because of the versatility of activities for all age groups."
Larry Bernhardt, Brewster, MA
