A Family Vacation with Balance: Yours at Smugglers’ Notch Vermont

A Family Vacation with Balance: Yours at Smugglers’ Notch Vermont


Isn’t family life all about finding balance? Like accepting your child’s addition of a tutu to their outfit – and waving them out the door with a smile. Or choosing a quick breakfast for dinner on a busy night – and celebrating the relaxed time together that the meal’s easy assembly delivers. Recognizing and accepting what works for your family – that’s balance.

Imagine finding balance in your family vacation. A balanced family vacation nurtures the family as well as each individual. It offers a mix of opportunities for time together, plus time apart to explore individual interests. A balanced family vacation delivers a great experience for parents and kids, so that everyone returns home feeling happy and refreshed.

If you’re searching for a destination to enjoy a balanced family vacation this summer, don’t stress. We’re here for you. At Smugglers’ Notch Vermont, we’ve been welcoming families to our playground in the Green Mountains for decades.

Active adventures include mountain biking, playing disc golf, taking a zip line tour, and climbing, crawling, and swinging through the elements on the Tree Top Obstacle Course. Balance all that action with a visit to the nature discovery center for quiet exploration or a workshop guided by an herbalist to create your own natural skin care products.

Kids find their own fun (as well as new friends!) in our children’s programs for ages 3-17 or at our nursery for ages 6 weeks to 3 years old. While the kids jump into their day filled with fresh experiences, parents can enjoy a massage or yoga class, or join a guided hike to explore some of our area’s most spectacular trails. Families at Smugglers’ often wrap up their day by watching the outdoor big screen movie or savoring Ben & Jerry’s ice cream cones while chatting around the fire pit. Quiet times make memories, too.



Smugglers’ village offers family-pleasing resort amenities like pool and waterslide complexes, dining and shopping. Guests enjoy these amenities in a welcoming and friendly atmosphere, where comfortable condominium lodging encourages relaxation and provides a home-away-from-home retreat.

The resort’s Family Fun Guarantee backs Smugglers’ commitment to providing a memorable experience that will set the standard for your family vacations for years to come. There are no worries with a Smugglers’ family vacation or reunion. You’ll find mountains of fun and mountains of adventure for all ages, in the balance your family chooses.
