Vermont for Fathers Day Full of Outdoor Activities
Kids of all ages love playing at Smuggler's Notch in Vermont's beautiful outdoors.

Parents with infants and toddlers should take advantage of June savings at Vermont’s Smugglers’ Notch Resort to renew romance and get some outdoors activity into their relationship. Between June 12-June 22, 2017, you can save 30% at Smugglers’ excellent childcare center, Treasures, which welcomes children ages 6-weeks to 3-years in a spotless and carefully designed facility, fully licensed by the state of Vermont. Kids ages 3-17 can join active supervised programs at rates that are 50% off. Since the staff is so great, parents willl be able to take out a canoe, hike up a mountain, or just bike or drive around this very scenic part of Vermont a deux — or have time to get active with your older kids. 

June is also the month when resort rates — in condos ranging from studios to three-bedroom units on this beautiful 3,000-acre property — are much less than during the peak of summer. Packages include lodging in one of Smuggs’ (as the resort is affectionately called) mountainside condos, a welcome orientation and use of all the resort’s facilities, such as the video arcade, heated pools, mini-golf and the skate park. Organized activities include shuffleboard, basketball, tennis, volleyball and more for the family to enjoy together. 

When you’re ready to plan a special weekend for Dad, choose the  weeks when Dads and Granddads will get special bonuses when traveling with their children. The “SimplySmuggs” package includes a wide range of activities for one flat price. In addition to the mountainside lodging, families can take advantage of the daily, award-winning children’s programs for toddlers through teens for a reduced fee; enjoy supervised adult adventures where parents can learn a new skill; take guided walks and hikes in the beautiful Vermont forest with a Smuggs naturalist; and try the pools, waterslides, hot tubs, the FunZone 2.0 Ozone level center, the Teen Alley teen center, and a variety of our family activities.

Sign up for the SimplySmuggs programs for everyone in June — we priced two adults, a baby and a teen in a studio sleeping four at $975.00 for five nights, a good value for all the activities you can do together. (Note that you can calculate if their FamilyFest package, which includes the childcare program for ages 3-17, is a better deal for your needs.)

During this Father’s Day special period, you’ll also receive the following added benefits:
* $100 Sport Shop gift certificate
* free Father’s Day Breakfast Buffet on Sunday or breakfast hosted by Smuggs’ characters for the whole family.
* a free Cabot Creamery arrival gift

Rates go down after summer too, if you can wait till September for all this fun. As the leaves begin to change, parents of infants and toddlers again benefit most during “AutumnFest,” when the resort features an award-winning Kids’ Connection program that includes lunch and an assortment of fun and supervised activities, crafts and games for young children.

The resort is located at 4323 Vermont Route 108, Smugglers’ Notch, VT 05464, so program that GPS. To reserve your mountain adventure, contact your travel agent, visit or contact their helpful staff; for certain offers, early bookers may benefit from a 20% off reduction in rates.
