"Great. Had a fantastic time on guided hikes and the kids had a great time at camps. We came in winter before, so we wanted to see Smuggler’s in summer. The guided hikes were fantastic, and we met lots of great people. Our children had an awesome time at the camps. We also enjoyed the evening activities on the green or in Bootleggers Lounge. There is so much to do, you just can’t do it all. We all had fun! Thank you, Smuggs!!!"

We also loved that you offered other outside activities. We went kayaking and on the llama trek, both memorable experiences. We enjoyed our time at Smuggs! As a family of 5, it's not always easy to meet everyone's idea of fun. You offered activities for each of our family members to enjoy, and we were easily able to mix it up with adventures and relaxation time!"

"Wonderful! 99% of staff we came in contact with were helpful, polite, warm, and friendly. The facilities and activities are excellent. We were able to try new activities and enjoyed them all. Our grandkids were old enough this year to try the pool slides, fun zone, and join us for canoeing, and they had a blast. Some of us tried pickle ball - don’t remember the instructor’s name but he was great. We had dinner at Valley Dream Farm for the second time - it’s a special place and an extraordinary experience. The adults biked the Lamiolle Rail Trail - loved riding through the corn fields and exploring the towns. The service is outstanding - our complaints were taken seriously and addressed quickly, respectfully, and professionally. Many thanks for a wonderful family vacation!"

The new cornhole tourney was fun along with the lawn games. That is a great new addition. Thanks for another great year!! We have exchanged at many other resorts for our float week and if RCI had a rating for the best gold crown property Smuggs would win hands down. No other resort had the amenities, activities, friendly staff, family atmosphere and fun like Smuggs! Keep up the great work we love our annual trip to Smuggs!"

We have two teenagers and a 12 year old and they all do there own thing for the most part and we come together for evening activities. The music and entertainment on the green is the best thing to come out of the pandemic. Smuggs provides our family the opportunity to reconnect and enjoy each other while we are all having fun.

The unit was immaculately clean when we arrived. The kitchen is well stocked with lots of extras such as teapot and teakettle, tray, slow cooker, blender etc. The grounds are well laid out and attractively landscaped and maintained. The trails are wonderful! We appreciated the trail maps which were accurate and enabled us to enjoy daily walks on the exceptional forest trails."

"Overall it was a great vacation. We loved the condo as it was so comfortable. The patio is amazing in the condo, we loved sitting outside even when it was raining. We had some very competitive games of Uno on the porch. The pools and slides are extremely fun. I liked that you had them in different locations so that you could see more of the mountain. The location of our condo to the village was perfect. I loved the country store. Monday was an amazing day with so many activities. My kids loved the water balloon game ... Having Ben and Jerry’s and Village Pizza closed on the days we were there sent us into town and it was great to explore. We ate at the Mountain Grille for lunch and had the best waiter. He was so friendly and made our experience great. I wish I knew his name, he was terrific. We loved the Fun Zone. It was a great place to spend the rainy afternoon. All the staff I interacted with were very friendly. It’s very pleasant walking around. We enjoyed our time there together as a family, it was great family time."

"We have been frequent visitors of Smuggs (winter and summer) over the years. We moved from Boston to London last summer and throughout the long lockdown months our kids were very clear that their greatest pandemic wish was to return to Smuggs. We spent 10 amazing days at Smuggs this summer and once again it exceeded all of our expectations. I think we covered every inch of the resort, and it’s hard to explain the pure joy we all felt throughout the entire trip. I’m sure this has been a very challenging year for you and your staff. Thank you all for your extraordinary efforts to keep the magic of Smuggs alive! We head back to London endlessly grateful that we were able to come to Smuggs again this summer. To quote Emily— “it really is America’s best family resort! Thank you!"

"Yes, we enjoyed this vacation very much and are planning to return either in the Winter or the Summer again. The staff was very friendly and professional. Our kids had a blast and there was always something to do. Our room was spotless when we arrived, very spacious, the beds were very comfortable, and our mountain view was terrific. The building was also quiet."

"This was our yearly family vacation and everyone (9 of us) had a great time. We stayed a week and the day before my 7 year old granddaughter asked if we could stay a couple of days longer. Never were bored and it was restful yet exciting. Would recommend Smuggler’s for any family."

"GREAT. My husband grew up going to Smuggs but I had never been. I was worried about traveling and having something to do for our two small children. I was not disappointed! We had a great time and would love to come back!"

"We had an excellent vacation at Smuggs! We loved the Liftside location, enjoyed the pools (your lifeguards are amazing!), live music, family activities and country fair. The Country Store was great and had everything we needed. I wish there was more on-site dining locations open. We loved how Smuggs was so close to hiking, biking and local attractions. Thank you for a great stay!"

"Our vacation was great. It was relaxing but we had plenty to do as well. I have four children and they all enjoyed the variety of activities and hiking available. We really enjoyed the solstice celebration. My children range from 14-6, so it is hard to find things we all like to do together. We were able to enjoy several things like the pool, funzone, bingo, and the walking trails together and I had fun doing other activities with 1 or two of my kids based on what they like. We all had fun."

"Was very pleased to see precautions Smuggs took related to COVID. Free masks, sanitizer, etc for guests; staff wearing masks; reduced number of guests and reductions in number of people at pools, etc."
