Here's what visiting families have to say about their TREASURES experience:
"The staff at Treasures are some of the most caring and warmest people I have ever met. I am totally at ease leaving my youngest child in their care. The photos they take during the day keep me connected to what she's up to, even when I'm out on the slopes. — Josh from Barrington, RI Stayed 03/06/2020-03/10/2020

"Treasures is such a beautiful facility. My 23-month-old has never been in daycare or preschool, and she clearly had a blast! We loved getting photos from Treasures and felt really reassured by them. ~ Mia from Cambridge, MA Stayed 01/17/2020-01/21/2020

" We just wanted to reach out and tell you how impressed we were with Treasures during our visit on February 19. We opened the door to this warm, calm, inviting facility and immediately felt any apprehensions about leaving "our baby" melt away. The entry area was roomy, organized, and clean (so nice when we had all our bulky ski gear on), the sign in process was efficient, and most importantly, the lovely caregivers were calm, confident, warm, and reassuring. Back near the child care rooms, our 3 year old, transitioned from us to a care giver and headed into the room without any crying or struggle. This was a pleasant surprise (ok, a shock!) to us, given we had never been to Treasures, and since the last time we had recently taken her to a babysitting facility at a NH ski resort, she came unraveled- in a big way!! We really attribute this smooth drop off to your staff and the general calm, welcoming feel of the facility. We loved the window area we could view her from, and we left quickly for the slopes, feeling she was in great hands and was lucky to be at such a wonderful place for the day. It was a delight as we would ski down the mountain, passing Treasures, knowing she was in there, being well taken care of. Thank you for giving us that peace of mind."

"Nearly every Saturday of the 2013 and 2014 ski season, our son went to Treasures. He was so excited about it each week! We loved the attentive care, open and clean space and the healthy food. They let him nap when he needed to and there was always a number of activities for him to choose from. He even got to try out skis on a few occasions. We're sad that he won't be there this season, since he'll ... be over 3. We highly recommend Treasures to everyone and it's the main reason that we chose Smuggs."

Family travel site www.wejustgotback.com: "We have yet to find a facility as impressive in another hotel or resort."

Family ski site www.familyskitrips.com: "Smugglers' Notch, the leader of the pack when it comes to accommodating parents, offers daycare for babies as early as six-weeks-old. Everything about "Treasures" daycare is prime for powder-craving parents: the slopeside setting, the custom designed age-appropriate rooms, and the staff of some of the best trained caregivers in the ski biz."

Family travel site www.familytravelforum.com: Treasures was included in Family Travel Forum's ranking of Top Ten Getaways for Tiny Travelers, a survey of resort and hotel programs which cater to infants and toddlers under three years old.
