Smugglers' Notch Resort,
by Eric H.
JEFFERSONVILLE, VT. -- I remember the first time staying at Smugglers'
Notch Resort nearly 30 years ago. At 12-years-old, the experience
made me want to live in New England, forever. How lucky, I thought,
that we could experience the colorful fall foliage, the morning
dew gracing the grass on a cold New England morning, the crisp
air purified by the mountains, falling asleep to the sound of
a bubbling brook, and experiencing the nearby attractions of
ice cream, apple cider, Vermont cheddar cheese and the imperfect
winding scenic roads leading there.
As the old cliche goes, "Some
things never change." The very same things that appealed
to a 12-year-old are just as important to a working professional,
mortgage-paying adult. We still live in New England, and sometimes
it seems that it would be nice to narrow it down even more and
think of us living in Vermont, forever. The reality is, however,
that no matter where one lives in New England, you are just a
few hours away from the best destinations. So, living in the
suburbs of Boston lend itself as a prime launching pad and a
nice place to experience all of New England, with Smugglers'
Notch being right at the top of the list. Full
