If you're in the mood for a special resort vacation nestled in the beautiful Green Mountains mountains of Vermont, then we strongly suggest considering a getaway to Smugglers' Notch Resort in Jeffersonville, Vt.

Known as "America's Family Resort," Smugglers' Notch offers amazing mountain views, extra comfortable lodge-like condos and lots of amenities for the foliage and ski seasons, summer vacation or the laundry fresh, lesser crowds splendor of the rerfreshing spring. Depending on the season, you'll have access to 
eight heated pools with plenty of lounge chairs, four winding waterslides, interactive water playgrounds, hot tubs for relaxing, a fresh water reservoir surrounded by mountains, wading pools, waterslides, and "play areas just for little ones." There's also tennis, miniature golf, canoeing and kayaking, fishing hiking and walking paths (with guided tours), message, art workshops, nearby golf, and many other childrens' activities. Smugglers' Notch also features the Morse Mountain Grille and Pub for informal dining and the Hearth and Candle restaurant for more upscale cuisine.

For all that Smugglers' Notch offers, what I have always enjoyed most is doing nothing. Just taking in the fresh air, gazing at the mountain scenery, and just naturally acclimating to a slower pace is all wereally need at this relaxing resort community. 
The Villmarksauna area is my favorite place to stay. Falling asleep to the sound of a peaceful brook is absolutely priceless! So, you can really have the best of both worlds: loads of activities or just being content with the simple things in this splendid rural area.

Smugglers' Notch is also near all the activities in Stowe, a famed mountain resort town with a near-perfect, idyllic quaint Vermont town center, a bike trail, tons of shopping and dining options on the Mountain Road, and wonderful tennis and hiking opportunities. The journey to Stowe from Smugglers' Notch, however, is my favorite part of the trip. The Notch road rises dramatically through dense forest and spectacular rock outcroppings. You really have to watch where you are driving or you could become very close with those rock formations. Also, it is a good idea to have a car with great horsepower, given the steep climb. 


Smugglers' Notch and the region it resides ultimately offers the visitor everything they could possibly want in a resort vacation from the myriad activities to the art and science of peaceful, quiet relaxation! Consequently, Smugglers' Notch is "mountains" above the rest when we are searching for a special Vermont vacation retreat in the mountains.
