  • Fantastic family vacation

    "Our family of three (with 8yr old girl) had an amazing family vacation. So much to do for each of us. A great blend of family and adult time. The children's camp was excellent, we played lots of tennis, hiked and swam. Thank you to Susan who was very friendly and helpful. Loved the location of the condo as it was very central to everything we wanted to do. We will definately be returning to Smuggs next year."

  • Fantastic President's Day Weekend

    "We just returned from a long weekend at Ann's home. I cannot thank Ann enough for accommodating our 2:30am arrival Wednesday in order to beat the snow storm. We arrived to a warm, clean and comfortable home. Ann, was very responsive to the few questions that we had. The two living levels are great for families. We awoke one morning completely snowed in but were plowed out by 7:30am. Thank you to Duane who kept the driveway clear the entire time we were there. We thoroughly enjoyed the hot tub. Easy drive to Okemo each morning. Thanks so much for sharing your wonderful home!"

  • Beautiful house in a great location!

    "After looking at a ton of houses, I have to say, we hit the jackpot. The pictures don't do this house justice. The entire place is clean and well-appointed and feels like a comfortable high-end home versus a ski house. We would stay here again in a second."
