About Mike Madden
We live in Ottawa, and have been snowboarding and summering at Smuggs for almost 10 years now. We loved the place so much that we bought our own home there in 2012.

Why Mike Madden chose Jeffersonville
Smuggs is probably the most reasonably-priced ski resort with top 10 vertical drop in Eastern North America. The crowd at Smuggs is friendly, relaxed, and serious about their outdoor makes it a pleasure to ride the lift with strangers here! The resort is also fantastic for kids - it is where our daughter first learned to snowboard from excellent, caring instructors. She has gone on to train at Smuggs for the last 4 years, and has propelled herself to the podium on multiple occasions at US National Snowboarding Championships. The resort is *THAT* good. For those who just want to ride great terrain, this place has it all: woods, steeps, cruisers, parks, moguls, and some great back-country terrain accessed by a short hike from the summit. With narrower, more winding runs than other resorts, the snow at Smuggs also stays dry and fluffy longer, and isn't quicly blown away. This place is tops, in our books!
What makes this Townhome unique
We almost gave this property a pass altogether when we were looking for a home at Smuggs - it really doesn't look too unique from the outside. However, as soon as we entered the front door, we all knew that we had found our home: it lives like a 2 BR unit (easily fitting typical families) for the price of a 1 BR unit. The divided bathroom is also genius - allowing one person to be in the shower, one using the toilet, and one brushing teeth or shaving at the sink, all with their own privacy. Additionally, the rustic-looking but ultra-modern natural gas "Vermont Castings" fireplace is heats the unit in no time, and provides a cozy, charming feel to the unit. Finally, the lofted tongue and groove cedar plank ceiling gives the unit a truly chalet-like feeling. Frankly, this atmosphere called to us: we didn't want a ski condo that looked like it belonged in the heart of downtown wanted to *feel* like we were on holiday at a ski resort, and Sterling 9 gives you that feeling in abundance!

Perfect place for 4-6 people, gracious and engaged host
Perfect TH for a ski trip, almost ski-in (50 yards walk from slope edge). Cozy and well appointed and stocked, fireplace adds to the festive mood, the host is always available to answer any questions. Look forward to renting it again sometime.
Great spot in the resort and accomodated our two wedding puppies!
I found this unit when looking for an option that could accommodate my daughters dogs who participated in her wedding ceremony! The corgis and I shared the space with several couples and guests over the various days and events. We cooked, ate, watched tv and came ans went freely. Very nice option for our needs.
I stayed here for a fall wedding (down the road at Boyden Farm) with my husband & 18 month old. The location right inside the Smuggs entrance is great, such easy access to the main road & all the local attractions, including the notch for leaf peeping. It's a short easy walk to the pond by the Smuggs entrance, to take in the changing leaves and relax. This condo had everything we needed to make our stay enjoyable, Mike was super responsive to any questions, and the weather was wonderful for spending time outdoors.
Little Gem in the Heart of a Fabulous Resort
We weren't sure what to expect when we pulled up to this unit, but we were pleasantly surprised. It has plenty of space, nice updates, and fully stocked with everything we needed. The host was quick to respond to any questions we had. The resort itself had so many activities for all ages (out group was three adults and a 2.5 year old). We went during the fall - their off season - so I can only imagine all of the activities they have during peak seasons.
The area around the resort was absolutely breathtaking. Our hikes included wonderful mountain views, waterfalls, and resevoirs. The outdoor activities were wonderful, but the restaurants in the area, wineries, etc were also fun to explore.
We enjoyed our stay very much and are already planning a trip back next year.
Great Place to Stay!
We decided to stay here during a family member's wedding weekend because of it's very convenient location and the flexibility of having our dogs come along with us on the trip. We absolutely loved our stay and would have liked to stay a bit longer. Everything was clean upon arrival and Mike is very great to work with. He responded to all questions and concerns very quickly. We would love to stay again! Thank you for a very pleasant stay!
Great place. Awesome location.
Perfect family condo that had everything and was close to everything. We would definitely stay there again.
