"We have never been to Smuggs in the Fall. What a great time as it wasn't crowded and the foliage was beautiful. Would definitely return in the fall!"

Nancy from Amherst, NH

"loved this vacation! It was the best I have had in years. The accommodations were perfect! The three season room and porch with a view to the surrounding hills put the resort on the top of my list. In addition, having one bathroom equipped with grab bars in the tub surround and around the toilet made it the ideal destination for travelers with mobility issues. Safety is important when I travel."

"The resort was second to none. The views were incredible. Some of the best I've ever seen. The staff was kind and attentive and the check in process was a breeze. Smugglers' Notch was a stay of a lifetime. We only had a short stay and we can not WAIT to come back and experience all it has to offer. We did a lot, but not even nearly as much as we wanted with what was available to us. We will be back for sure and Smugglers' won us over for our favorite resort! Looking forward to spending many chilly fall vacations here for years to come!"

"The entire trip was amazing. The photos didn't do justice to how nice the accommodations were. Our room was amazing with plenty of room for everyone and everything we needed to keep our vacation going smoothly. All of the staff we met were friendly and helpful. The day trips we went on will be remembered forever. The kids LOVED it and so did we. We want to thank you for making our vacation such a fantastic experience. It helped our family grow closer together and to spend quality time with each other. I can't express how much I appreciate that. We will definitely be coming back and we hope to make it a tradition with our family."

"Our first visit to Smugglers' was amazing! It was relaxing and comfortable, yet also fun and adventurous. Our condo was even better than we imagined and the views were breathtaking. The staff were friendly. Everything was very clean and well-kept."

Theodore from Brantford, Ontario
Stayed 09/28/2019-10/05/2019

"This is an amazing resort with so many things to keep you busy if you want to be busy, or a totally relaxing getaway if that's what you need. Such beautiful homes and very comfortable. There are many places to visit within an hour away or closer."

Jamie Lynn from Cedar Grove, NJ

"Once again, a wonderful trip. Always feel at home when coming to Smuggs. We've been coming for years and this year, we brought our 11 month old for his first vacation! This time, it was even harder for me to leave. I absolutely love Vermont, the Stowe area, and especially Smugglers' Notch. Driving through the Notch for the first time gets me extra excited that Smuggs is coming up! We love how at-home we feel, the facilities, the amenities and everything about the property. It truly feels like home! Thank you for not only being a part of our son's first vacation but for our family vacations for most of the last 7 years. I would LOVE to experience the resort at other times of the year as well. Once again, we are a very happy Smuggs family!"

Beverly from Quincy, MA
Stayed 10/06/2018-10/08/2018

"I thought Smugglers' Notch was a great resort. My husband and I are the parents of a two year old but there was still plenty that he could do (and that we could do with him). I liked how family oriented it was. Gorgeous foliage. Great apartment; loved the amenities. So grateful for all the fun activities. Was very glad we were able to cook in the room. Amazing value. Wish we could have stayed longer; sad we didn't get to take advantage of all of them."

Robert from Westampton, NJ
Stayed 10/05/2018-10/11/2018

"Vermont is beautiful, the hiking great, the food generally really good, the craft beers amazing and the feeling of family from the Smuggs staff just rounds things out wonderfully."
