This past Saturday, December 19, 2015, Santa arrived at The Barn at Smugglers' Notch. Because of a lack of snow, Santa had a wagon pulled by Amish Draft Horses instead of the usual Reindeer. It was a fun time. Thank you to all that came out to participate! We greatly look forward to next year when our venue will be open!
As we have looked out our window here at the base of Smugglers' Notch, we have noticed snowmaking going on whenever temperatures cool down. All this is to prepare for Opening Day at our partner resort, Smugglers" Notch.
The Barn at Smugglers' Notch has partnered with Smugglers' Notch Resort for the best in quality accommodations and family amenities. They can provide our guests and yours with comfortable condominum resort housing, where you can enjoy the amenities that Smugglers Notch is famous for. Smugglers' Notch resort has received many accolades for it's ski terrain and award -winning, year-round, family activities and programs. Arbor Trek and it's park of canopy zip lines is also located near by us, at the base of Smugglers' Notch. In addition, through our partnership with "Smuggs" we are able to provide shuttle service from our venue to the housing and amenities of Smugglers' Notch Resort. So let us and our partner resort take care of the details, while you, your family and guests relax and enjoy all that our beautiful location has to offer.
When searching for the perfect place for us to build our wedding and event barn business, known as The Barn at Smugglers' Notch, we basically looked for the three proverbial benchmarks for a great start…..location, location, location. Well we feel like we hit the jackpot with this location. We purchased the farm that our wedding and event venue will sit on from The Dodge family.
This farm is significant, both historical and visually, and is revered by both locals and tourists for it's pastoral settings and amazing, unobstructed and panoramic views of the Green Mountains. From where our Wedding and Event Barn will sit, the guests will be able to view Sterling Ridge, Smugglers' Notch, Smugglers' Notch Resort and Mount Mansfield. The above photo was taken this past fall and does begin to give you a true sense of how vast and beautiful the panoramic views this location offers.
