"Smugglers' Notch was a great place for our 7-family reunion! We had 16 children, ranging in age from 2 to 11 years old. Everyone had a great time. We enjoyed local activities like canoeing and horseback riding, as well as time at the pools. The relaxed atmosphere and central location of the Liftside Condos was perfect for hanging out. It was easy to congregate outside while grilling, have a pick-up whiffle ball game, or run around with glow sticks. The condos were spacious, and we even fit all 16 kids in for a movie night with babysitters from Treasures." — Lauren from Wallingford, PA
"We've been doing family reunions now for about 15 years... this was the best vacation ever because not only did my kids have a great time, I did too. For the first time in a long time, I truly felt like I had been on vacation. Thanks for all your hard work."
"We spent two years preparing and talking to Smugglers' Notch before the reunion [over 100 family members]... and their staff was phenomenal. What we needed, they made happen." — Marie Hill, Lynnfield, MA
"I highly recommend other families give a family reunion a try. It is very fulfilling and I would recommend Smugglers' Notch because of the versatility of activities for all age groups." — Larry Bernhardt, Brewster, MA
