  • Mountain and village lodging: from studio apartments to luxury 4-5 bedroom condos - all come with fully equipped kitchens.

#7) What’s Nearby: zipline, kayaking, canoeing, stand-up paddle boarding, farm tours, e-bike tours, winery tours, history walks, Stowe (21 minutes away, and you get to drive thru “the Notch”!), Burlington (52 minutes away), and Montreal (1 hour, 56 minutes away, and you get to practice the French you took in high school - and probably forgot).

#6) 8 heated pools, 4 waterslides, 2 freshwater swimming reservoirs, and 2 hot tubs.

#5) Daily and weekly activities in and around the village from sun up to sundown and beyond: farmers market, Vermont Country Fair, puppet shows, Marko the Magician, karaoke, nature center, scavenger hunts, giant swing, Eurobungy, pirate sing-along, pool side movies, pedal go cart races, arts & crafts, 802 disc dogs, bingo, meditation, yoga, volleyball, gaga ball, swimming, mini-golf, ziplining, FunZone 2.0, life-size games on the village green, segway rides, Zumba, comedy show (adults), dance party, laser tag, dodge ball (teens), sketching, painting, llama treks, fishing, ... and/or my personal plan of (in)action for the first day - take a nap in your condo or poolside and RELAX. (PS: the frozen, fruity adult beverages at the Mountainside Cabana are pretty tasty.)

#4) Breath-taking mountain scenery and magnificent sunsets. Don’t forget to drive thru the Notch at least once.

#3) The 4th of July is celebrated all week long.

#2) Stay 3 or more nights and get the next night free, now thru July 15th.

#1) Smugglers’ Notch Resort is America’s Family Resort - you and your family deserve the BEST!
