Robert from Meriden, CT
"Excellent room with many convenient amenities. Beautifully decorated and very clean. Great mountain views from a quiet, private deck. Also convenient store and restaurants on site. Many things to do for children such as the zone and activity center. Our family really enjoyed our stay and the surrounding venues."
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."
Paul from Boulder, CO
"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!!!"
Donna from Fort Pierce, FL
"Wonderful. The setting was beautiful and the Condo efficient and clean. The property was fantastic as well. Loved the General Store on the property so we could get everything we needed and that it was well stocked."
Larry from Coudersport, PA
"Everyone in our family was absolutely impressed with Smugglers' Notch. The rooms were large, beautiful and clean."
Blair from Fulshear, TX
"From registration to needing extra business services, the staff at the front desk were very friendly, courteous and helpful. They went out of their way to answer questions and made me feel welcome and valuable. Very positive experience! We needed coffee filters at 7:30 am before the staff arrived so the front desk senr security to bring them within 5 minutes. Again they went out of their way!"

"The staff at Smuggs went out of their way to make sure we were well accommodated. The Riverside condos are a perfect and have more privacy than other areas of the resort. This was our second stay and we would love to come back during the winter."
Sangram from Westborough, MA
"It was really great. The resort was nice, well maintained, Funzone and indoor pool was really amazing. The kids likes it very much. The front desk was also very cordial and receptive."
Laurie from Marietta, GA
"We had a great time overall. Vermont (particularly
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."
Linda from Springfield, VT

Paul from Ringoes, NJ
"Very nice accommodations, friendly, courteous staff and a relaxing, enjoyable experience."
Kenneth from Bloomington, IN
"Fascinating vacation. Vermont is different than the midwest. We liked the small town, small business, and above all the friendliness of the people. We did not sense the fear of covid that we here about on a daily basis. And this is positive. Get on with life."
