Smugglers' Notch is a four season family vacation destination in the heart of northern Vermont. It was originally the dream of IBM President Tom Watson Jr. to create a replica of Zermatt, Switzerland in northern Vermont with the model of a self contained ski village built at the bottom of several mountains for skiing opportunities. Smuggs has evolved into the #1 family resort (SKI magazine 15 years in a row) in the country with excellent children's programs, amenities, and activities.
With 78 trails, 8 lifts, and over 65% snow making coverage, Smuggler's skiing is perfect for whatever you seek. With over 1000 acres of skiing terrain, there is something for everyone. For the novice, Morse Mountain is the ultimate learning mountain especially catering to children. The upper mountain offers a variety of challenging skiing cruisers, 22 glade runs, three top level snowboard parks, and some of the most challenging terrain for the experienced skier with the fourth highest vertical drop (2610) in New England . There are five black diamond trails and the Black Hole, the only triple black diamond in the East. There are also 58 km of cross country/snowshoe trails.
This spacious accommodation is spread over three levels. WiFi streams throughout so you can stay connected to the office and family. It is available from the resort for a fee. (This year, we have subscribed to a service for our guests which would provide wifi for free with unlimited devices. For this year, it is beta. We are paying for the service, but not sure if there are issues, so it is not guaranteed with the rental - you can still buy through Smuggs. It is our attempt to provide unlimited devices for you, rather that the Smuggs limited devises and we will provide passwords. Smart TV should also be available.
The main level features the living area, dining area, and kitchen where you'll find ample living space for your group as well as sliding glass doors to a deck where you can see the Resort in action. The kitchen is fully equipped so stay in and cook for the family if you choose, or, enjoy the many onsite or close by dining options- either way it's all about convenience and comfort.

Smuggs new Zipline Canopy Tour is really fun! It's open year round!
Following a mountain brook from high above Smugglers' Notch Resort Village, the 2 1/2 to 3-hour Zipline Canopy Tour descends through mature stands of hemlock, white birch, and sugar maple. You'll soar down more than 4,000 feet of ziplines, cross suspension bridges, and rappel from trees.
There are no resort amenities included in the rental. It is "lodging only". Many, including lift tickets and access to resort facilities may be purchased through the resort. Access is through the resort if available.
We generally do not rent in the summer. If you are interested, it would be "lodging only". This seems to work very well for weddings as there are several local wedding facilities including "the Barn" and "the Boyden Winery".
