Depending on when you go, there are different activities offered at the resort. Before going, check out Smuggler's website to see what activities will be going on at the resort while you will be visiting.
First check the website of Smugglers Notch Resort to see what is open when you will be there.
Places to Eat at Smugglers:
Hearth and Candle is an intimate, romantic restaurant great for a grownup night. Reservations are recommended.
Also on site is Riga Bello's Pizzeria, Bootleggers' Lounge, Ben & Jerry's Scoop Shop, Green Mountain Deli, and, of course, the Village Store with quick snacks.
In the area, there are lots of restaurants both in Stowe (20 minutes through the Pass) and towards Jeffersonville, Johnsonville, and Morrisville in the other direction.
Swimming at Smugglers:
Bring your own towels. There are a number of pools and two main pool areas that are guaranteed to entertain the kids. There’s Notchville Park, Little Smuggler's Lagoon, Rumrunner's Hideaway, waterslides, and even a giant rapid river ride.
These are offered primarily offered in the summer and the winter months, which are prime times for the resort. The programs are divided by age group. Treasurers, the daycare on site, is amazing, with some of the largest fish tanks I have ever seen in each of the rooms.
Various surfaces are available. In the summer, an indoor tennis court is also available. In the winter, the indoor tennis court area becomes the Fun Zone.
According to the note, the petting zoo animals went to Florida for the winter but would be back in Mid June for the season. By the pictures it looked like they had half a dozen animals for the kids to enjoy.
