Smugglers Notch is rated as the #1 overall resort by Ski magazine. This is one of the reasons why we chose to build our vacation home right next to the mountain. In fact, our house is actually on the trail map and you can walk to everything at Smuggs as well as surrounding restaurants. Ours is, quite possibly, the closest private home rental at Smugglers Notch resort. Not only is our location ideal, our house is brand new!
The house has an open floor plan with granite countertops in the kitchen with birch cabinetry. The family room has a gas fireplace, a 50 inch TV, and leather sofa, love seat, and single chair (they are so cozy that it is hard not to fall asleep after a great day on the mountain). The total square footage is about 1800. There are two queen bedroom sets in the bedrooms and four bunk beds in the two extra rooms on the second floor. This will provide comfortable sleeping for up to 12 people.
At the end of your day you can enjoy watching the ski trails on Madonna Mountain from the front porch. And FIREWORKS! The resort puts on an amazing fireworks show every Thursday. You will have a spectacular view right from the front porch. The kids will love it!
Summer is great too! You can take advantage of the swimming, fun zone, zip lining and other activities at a fraction of the cost of staying at the resort and you can still walk to just about everything. Other activities off the mountain include horseback riding, fishing, kayaking, biking, hiking, & fishing. There are some great wine and spirits tasting real close by too.
We have family across the country and frequently look for vacations rentals that accommodate two families. We built our home with that in mind and hopefully you will appreciate our approach too.

About the owner: Having family close to Smugglers Notch Resort introduced us to this great family vacation spot. We have been vacationing there almost twenty years. We often thought how wonderful it would be to have our own vacation home in this beautiful area.
For years we searched for just the right spot as close to the mountain as possible. We finally found an older house in severe disrepair and we jumped on it. It was in such disrepair that we needed to start from scratch. We decided to donate our house to the Cambridge fire department. They used it for training exercises and then burned it to the ground on a cold snowy day in March 2013. It was a magnificent experience that we will never forget. We will always be grateful to the fire squad and we think they appreciated the opportunity as well.
We started building immediately and tried to consider everything that a large group or multiple families would appreciate. We hope that you enjoyed our story and take the opportunity to visit our custom home and take advantage of the many wonderful things that Smugglers Notch and Vermont have to offer.
