Jaime from Suffield, CT

"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 did take in the evening activities- pirate, Marko, acoustic duo and Smuggs band. My personal highlights were Marko- always Marko! and Goodtime Charlie. It's a beautiful location in Vermont with great recreational programs for all ages! We've visited many years- in winter and in summer and have great family memories- the best part for us is always is the super staff!"

The Kramer Family, London, England

"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!"

"We had an amazing stay and enjoyed every moment of being at Smuggs. We brought our children (6 & 8 yrs old) and spent the first day exploring the mountainside water park. We had so much fun for 5 hours swimming, tubing, and splashing. All the adults loved the Cabana drinks and the kids loved the snacks. We enjoyed meals at Hearth & Candle and Mountainside Grille. Had ice cream at Ben & Jerry’s. Bought souvenirs at the mountain shop and Country Store. We explored the 3 tiered pool and the Fun Zone. All in less than 24 hours! It was great that everything we needed was right there. This was our first trip since November 2019 and it was great to get away in our own

We love it so much and are still discovering new things and places we didn't know about - even after so many years. Thank you all for hanging in there during the pandemic. During that time, whatever struggles you had as a resort were invisible to us. Sending gratitude to each and every person who makes it happen."

This was our first real vacation with our toddler son, so we weren’t sure how it would go. Everything at Smugglers' Notch exceeded our expectations.

"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."

Lyndsay from Schenectady, NY
Stayed 08/22/2020-08/29/2020

"This is our third summer in a row coming to Smugglers' Notch. I'll admit, we had a rough time adjusting to the new "routine" of pre-booking our time for activities. Kids are so unpredictable so it was a challenge to line up pool time with the time that they actually wanted to swim, etc. Once we got the hang of it though, I would say this year was just as good as the other years we have stayed there. We had a great time and have another week of memories together. We had a blast. We were actually hesitant to even come this year due to COVID concerns and knowing that there would be restrictions that might change our experience. I'm so glad we decided to come. This is our favorite place to go with the kids. Smugglers' Notch provides family fun as well as activities for the kids to do on their own. It feels like a home away from home. We can't wait to come back next summer."

Mary Ellen from Valatie, NY

"Absolutely safe and private! Relaxing but yet adventurous. At first we were extremely annoyed having to sign up for events throughout the resort. But then understood the precautions and the safety measures they had in place were for our well being. It felt like we were in a private island. It was great! The staff disinfected things immediately and were very attentive to our questions and concerns. Due to the pandemic our nation is experiencing, we made the best of our time at Smugglers. Beyond the relaxing atmosphere at and around our condo. Excellent customer service throughout the resort. Although, covid restricted us from taking part in many activities on the resort, we enjoyed the condo comfort so much we stayed an extra night to go hiking, and see the beautiful waterfalls of Vermont. Thank you to the Smugglers' Team."

The outdoor music was great - to be able to sit together and enjoy live music and have some fun was a wonderful change of pace. Thank you for continuing to be a welcoming place for our family and providing to us an opportunity to have a fun family vacation despite all the restrictions!

"Summer time at Smuggs equals Family Time - relaxing, fun and amazing! The view and landscaping is always spectacular. We were concerned not knowing what to expect because of the pandemic, but we had another awesome summer family tradition. We love Smuggs! It's a family tradition, 23 years and counting. We look forward to share the Smuggs experience with the next generation."

"We really enjoyed it. Each encounter with staff was very friendly. The grounds were beautiful - very well maintained. The suite was clean, well laid out and very roomy for the 9 of us! We never felt like we were cramped or crowded. Four full baths was amazing!! We decided to make several of our meals and the kitchen, pots and pans and fridge space were perfect. We utilized, the hiking trails, disc golf (big hit), mini golf and one of the pools that is part of the Owls building."

"It was a great family vacation. Even though Covid has changed Smuggs this summer we felt safe and there were still things to do. Smuggs is such a great family vacation. It allows our family the quality time together we do not get at home. Smuggs allows us to enjoy each other while at the resort. I can’t say enough great things about Smuggs. We look forward to coming back."
