"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!"

"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."

"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."

"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!"

"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."

"Totally impressed. Best World Championship ever, seriously; I edit the PDGA magazine, DiscGolfer, and I have never attended a Worlds where I did not hear a few pros whine about one thing or another; not so this one. Your staff might be the best anywhere in any field, volunteer to help, go out of their way, friendly. Perfection.

"Absolutely incredible. The house was great. Everything up to date, comfortable and convenient. we didn't use the pools or anything because we were there for the disc golf worlds and just didn't get a chance but I was so impressed with the resort and all it has to offer. Smugglers' Notch Resort totally exceed our expectations."
