"Great! Loved it. Great place for kids. Loved being so close to everything we could walk. Water parks were so fun. Fun zone was great. General store was stocked so well with food and games etc. Super helpful.

"It was truly amazing!! 😊 There was so much to do at Smugglers Notch, every single day that we were there, especially with all of the swimming pools and hot tubs. We took advantage of a lot of the stuff that there was to do there, (mini golf was a blast-😁) and had so much fun, and many, many laughs! Even the shuttle rides were a blast, as we got to know the drivers, and we never had an issue getting one when needed. Very convenient! Other times we just hung out in our room, and took advantage of the beautiful view of the trees, and quiet. 😍 None of us wanted to leave, we were all so sad when that day came! I would really love to come back again. They had so much for the kids to do. All kinds of activities for all age children, that kept them quite busy last week. We played family bingo, which was a lot of fun. Also, Family Feud on the Friday that we arrived, was so much fun."

"Great family destination. It was great to get the kids outdoors and playing with each other without electronics. The "fair" with sack races, etc and fireworks was an unexpected and great surprise. The kids enjoyed it and we bought some great unique items from the craft vendors."

Samantha from Providence, RI

"We LOVED our time at Smugglers' Notch. It was such a beautiful week in the Green Mountain state, we loved being able to hit the road and explore Vermont every morning, and return to the resort in the afternoon knowing our time spent at "home" would be full of fun activities for us to enjoy. It was so relaxing to know that once we were back at the resort we could just park the car, walk around, and still enjoy a ton of fun things to do...it was an amazing vacation and if the opportunity arises we will definitely be back!"

Jonathan from Canandaigua, NY

Lori from Wrentham, MA

"We love to visit Smuggs. Always a full calendar of events for the family. I would strongly recommend a family to visit here. We enjoy the nature, our time and all the resort has to offer. We barely have the TV on- we are here to enjoy family time. From all the activities and just being in the condo playing card games - this really is the most enjoyable vacation we have every had. Love it every time!

Michael from West Hartford, CT
Stayed 08/15/2023-08/19/2023

"We had a great time. The room was excellent and had all the amenities we needed. Even though we picked a rainy week for our vacation we had plenty to do and were able to swim at each pool. The kids (9,9 and 6) thoroughly enjoyed themselves. Shuttle services were excellent and quick when used. With our location it was just a short walk in most cases which was also nice. Great family fun, even though it rained every day we were there it was still worth the visit. I was concerned looking at the weather ahead of time but the pools are slightly heated and stay open in the rain and activities happen under a tent or indoors as needed. Would love to come again and experience Smuggs in the sun as I imagine it is a whole different experience."

Danielle from Fairfield, CT
Stayed 08/13/2023-08/19/2023

"It was wonderful! We loved our time at Smuggs -- our first real vacation since the pandemic. It's "good, old fashioned fun" and so relaxing. I thought everything was an A+. The one area for improvement though is in your offers of hikes. Everything currently is for intermediate/advanced and multi-hour. Not all of us can get away for that long (we have a child who was in camp) and also, are that advanced/fit to do so. Shorter, 1-2 hour hikes for beginner hikers -- even if it means only going "up" for an hour or 45 minutes and turning back, would be much appreciated. I didn't feel like I was able to hike as much as I have at other places because I wasn't advanced enough, and that's a pity. the rest, though, was A+!! You have created a wonderful place to have a vacation and we will be back for years to come. I will highly recommend it on various family oriented facebook groups!"

"Spacious, lots of amenities and things to do. Highly recommend this to family and friends. Overall it was another great vacation at Smuggs. I wish it could have lasted longer. The scenery is great and there is so much to do. A month isn't enough to do it all. You have to absolutely travel through the notch, it is awe-inspiring. The local winery's for adults are a great visit, the local villages are great to visit, so many things, kayaking was great. The kids had a great time swimming, playing video games, doing crafts, winning prizes.... We will absolutely be back, and maybe bring some friends or family with us."

"Extremely pleased with the resort. Wonderful location, nice staff, excellent facilities, great lodging. It was our first experience with this type of vacation and the whole family enjoyed it. Coming from abroad to enjoy a VT experience, we feel that we could not have done better. We are used to take mountain vacations in the summer across Europe and were eager to discover the Green Mountains. It was too short of a stay but we can only highly recommend Smuggler's Notch to our friends."

Barbara from Sun City West, AZ

"We loved our vacation at Smugglers' Notch. Starting with the property that looked fantastic. Our unit that we stayed in for eight days was very comfortable. The appliances top notch. We loved how beautiful Vermont was. This was on our bucket list and we are so thankful that we could fulfill that. Thank you for such a wonderful place to stay. It is a beautiful place, and there are many many things offered to children of any age a wonderful place for families. We enjoyed watching and visiting with the people in the village area."

Plenty of restaurants to choose from in the area also! It was a great vacation! Although we were by ourself this vacation we love how Smuggs includes families doing things together and also adult time in the evenings! We loved our Smugg’s vacation! This is our second year in a row! We will definitely be back! Love the texting updates and reminder’s!"

Though the decor was a bit dated, we didn't mind as it was so comfortable. Especially loved the gas fireplace. A new favorite destination! Thank you."

Michelle from Old Saybrook, CT

"I was extremely satisfied with this vacation. We have never booked at the resort before. I was apprehensive coming in with 14 guests and renting 3 units. All people in my party had a wonderful time and are looking forward to renting in the future. The resort was clean, all concerns and issues were addressed promptly, and there were an abundance of activities for all ages. At Smugglers' Notch my family of 14 played together and made wonderful memories. We loved your outdoor grill space and picnic tables. Smugglers Notch Resort was an amazing family vacation and one for the record books. Our family had not vacationed together in a very long time. Having no experience with your resort, I was apprehensive but you proofed me wrong. Great memories were made with a wide variety of activities for all ages. My family ages are 60 years old to 21 months. The condos were spacious, well equipped and we had one incident of a broken handle on the patio door. Guest services handled this matter very professional and promptly. I will be a repeat customer to your resort. 5 star in my books. Thank you to all staff for making this a dream vacation."

Marc from Poughkeepsie, NY

"We had a great week as always. Weather was cooperative (not that it's under anyone's control), we enjoyed the usual activities (all 3 pools), explored trails we had not seen before, and had a relaxing time with family and friends. This was our 12th year (would've been 13 if not for Summer 2020) and each year brings us joy to be at Smuggs."

"We had a great week. We were a family of 10, 6 adults and 4 children spread over 2 units. Everyone enjoyed themselves. The country fair and the musical entertainment afterwards was a great family entertainment. A number of events were scheduled around the dinner hour and because we had a range of ages (6 months to 8 years) we were not able to do the bingo which was always a family favourite... There was so much to do we found something everyday."

Tara from Jamestown, RI

"I absolutely LOVE being at Smugglers' Notch. High quality of amenities, activities and pools. Everything you'd need if you didn't go off the resort. But, so much to do outside of the resort too. I appreciate the quality of activities that were free to join...the farmers market, the fair on Thursday, the giant game night, the guided hikes...I can't say enough! We also went to the comedy show it was a very fun night."

David from Derry, NH
Stayed 07/04/2023-07/09/2023

"Our family loved our stay at Smuggler's Notch. It was like sending our kids to the coolest sleepaway camp and getting to go with them. We've spent time at other northeast ski resorts during the summer season, and while each had some fun activities, we've never discussed revisiting them. They often seem like token investments to fill out a page or brochure, something likely condo owners and their children would quickly tire of. Smuggs is really different. There was always activity around the village, because it's a summer camp for
local children. The investments made around the resort for the summer season are impressive, and with the help of a few other local businesses, you offer a full calendar of activities to keep action-oriented vacationers like us busy every day. We're looking forward to coming back and enrolling our kids in one or more of the week-long summer programs. A lot of other places claim they are 4-season resorts, but Smuggs really is. Now if you could only upgrade those lifts..."

There’s so much to do. We have a 6 year age gap between kids, and yet we were able to find plenty of activities we could enjoy as a family."

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!

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!"

"Glad that Covid is over and everything was back in action. Nothing beats all the activities we all know and love like bingo, Marco, comedy night, country fair. 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!"

"To be fair we love Smuggs we have been coming every summer for the last 15 years. We love what the resort offers. We love the family programming. It’s family friendly entertainment! 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. Smuggs offers something for everyone in our family. Grateful for the friendships we have made here too. It is truly amazing sharing Smuggs with people from all over."

Staff is super friendly and eager to help. We enjoyed the big smuggle a lot. Pools were wonderfully heated so comfortable even in cooler weather. Great to have so many lifeguards at each pool.

From the pirate show, making our own boats and the boat race, mini golf, magic show, family bingo, fire jugglers and the music after and the smores, and the Smuggs adventure...it's wonderful to have such a variety of things to do. Our family had a wonderful vacation from the grandchildren, their parents and grandparents. Smuggs is wonderful! Our home away from home was perfect...Cookware was perfect. Our home was clean when we arrived. Housekeeping does a good job. This is a beautiful property. Congratulations to all who maintain this and help to provide us with memorable family vacations."

"In thirty years of timeshare ownership, this is one of the best exchanges we have had. Although our building was not new at all, it is very well maintained. 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."
