Located on the east side of Smugglers' Notch Resort Village, the Highlands Hill Community is nestled into the woodlands between Morse Mountain and the Mount Mansfield State Forest. This exclusive location features one-, two- and three-bedroom condominium homes in a variety of convenient locations to the lift or to pick up our on-demand shuttle which will take you anywhere you wish to go in the Resort. Twenty-eight of these vacation homes (Trailside Executives) are three-bedroom, townhouse duplexes. These spacious floor plans give privacy to large families and may also be rented as two-bedroom homes. However, as a three-bedroom home, there is a large master bedroom with spacious whirlpool.
Other locations in this setting boast well-appointed, condominium-style accommodations, including one-, two- and three-bedroom, fully equipped homes built between 1993 and 1998. Each home has all of the conveniences you would expect! Amenities include telephone voice mail messaging, sheets, blankets, towels, washer and dryer, most paper products, and a fully equipped kitchen, including all pots and pans, dishware, glassware, microwave and dishwasher. These homes all have fee-based, wireless broadband internet connections as well as fee-based, dial-up internet connections. Each home has a large living room with gas fireplace (some have wood-burning fireplaces, and we provide the firewood... you provide the kindling), dining area, outdoor balcony and several televisions with DVD or VCR. These homes have one, two or three full baths depending on the size of the home, and all feature a whirlpool bath off the master bedroom. The vacation homes are prepared for your arrival, and a mid-stay linen change is included for stays of more than 7 nights.
The vacation homes (Aspens & Trailside Highlands) closest to the spacious Morse Highlands Lodge also have exclusive use of the Morse Highlands Community Center including year-round, outdoor heated swimming pool, exercise room, changing rooms and playground. The Mountain Laurels also features its own outdoor heated pool. All interior amenities and furnishings in the above Highlands Hill homes reflect the lifetime responsibility of Smugglers' Notch Resort to maintain them with the highest of standards in a "like new" condition.
Seasonally, this location is close to several of our most popular venues. In Winter, you are just a short walk or convenient, on-demand shuttle ride to Morse Highlands Lift and Lodge where you can easily connect with Morse Mountain or drop your children off at the Highlands Day Lodge to meet their on-snow program guide, or, during the Summer months, our children's adventure programs. Just as easy, you can take a short walk or convenient on-demand shuttle ride toward the west, and you will be at the 'edge' of the Morse Liftline trail. Morse Mountain is your on-snow connection to the upper mountains. Our convenient on-demand Resort Shuttle service is available to take you anywhere you wish to go in The Village, or to the base of Sterling and Madonna Mountains.
Cross-country ski or snowshoe right out your back door and connect to our 34 km of cross-country trails and 24 km of snowshoe trails. Summer brings you the convenience of using this trail system for our self-guided, nature walks and hikes. Notchville Park with 3 pools, Lily Pad Walk, Twister Waterslide and Climbing Wall (to name a few) is one of our most popular Summer water playground venues and is just a quick walk or on-demand shuttle ride from any location at Highlands Hill.
