"We loved our stay at Smugglers’ Notch. Accommodations were roomy, comfortable and clean. Check in was an easy process, as was check out. We did a lot of touring in the area, so did not use many of the resorts facilities. We hope to return and stay for a longer time so we can enjoy the resort more."

Jason from Lakeland, FL

"We loved our stay at Smugglers' Notch. Smugglers' Notch was the perfect place to enjoy the fall foliage which was the whole purpose of our trip. The views were amazing and our "home" was spacious and cozy. The extra touch of providing restaurant recommendations, covered bridges and waterfall locations was deeply appreciated and helpful and we took full advantage of them."

"It was a great stay. The room I had was huge, with two bathrooms, a small kitchen, balcony and three beds. The bathrooms were a bit small though fine. Lots of electric outlets in the rooms were helpful. The leaves were in full color, yea! Loads of activities are available for families. I only took advantage of the disc golf - great courses!!!"

the area around the Notch) has a LOT of great things to see & do. We could have easily enjoyed another week there (if we'd had the time). Nice property overall, with a perfect location for lots of amazing activities & sight-seeing. It was a great experience for us, and we were sorry when check-out day came."
