These Maple Glazed Cinnamon Rolls are one of the featured items at Smuggler’s Notch Resort in Vermont. One bite, and you’ll see why!
Moooose. Moooooose. Yup, that’s our patented moose call that we use every time we drive into Vermont. No, it hasn’t worked yet. But we are determined to see a moose on one of these trips! If you’ve ever traveled in Vermont, then you are well aware of how awesome this state is. Every state has its own feel and culture, but Vermont is just different. This wooded state doesn’t really have any large cities outside of Burlington, and there really aren’t any major interstates that cut across the wooded landscape. Instead, state highways connect town after town. This means that a drive through the rolling hills and mountains of Vermont is an awesome experience. You never know what you’ll come across.
For fans of good beer, Vermont actually has the most craft breweries per capita of any state in the country. Yes, the country. For fans of outdoor activities, there is no shortage of paths for hiking, biking and climbing. The Long Trail runs the length of the state and is a favorite for avid hikers. For fans of skiing, Vermont is well-known for its incredible ski resorts and peaks. My wife and I recently had the opportunity to travel to Smuggler’s Notch for several days of kayaking, winery and maple farm touring and just generally relaxing. Oh, and there may have been a lot of good eating in there, too!
We kicked off our first morning at Smuggler’s Notch with breakfast right in the middle of the Resort Village at the Morse Mountain Grille. You guys know how much I love my “weekend breakfast food,” and my eyes immediately landed on their signature breakfast item: the Maple Glazed Cinnamon Roll. This wasn’t just any old cinnamon roll. This thing was huge! In fact, we split it among the four of us at the table.
Vermont is the largest producer of maple syrup in the country, and they are proud of their maple recipes. Maple syrup makes it’s way into everything from house salad dressings to soft serve ice cream. But this Maple Glazed Cinnamon Roll was a stroke of pure genius. Combining maple and cinnamon in a decadent breakfast recipe is pretty much my idea of perfection!
Speaking of maple syrup, we took one of the planned activities out of Smuggler’s Notch to go kayaking down a local river to a maple farm. How much more quintessential Vermont can you get? Kayaking to a maple farm! We may or may not have left with a carload of maple syrup…just sayin’. And this is just one of the hundreds of various activities at Smugg’s. After the activities, we were able to retreat back to our 3-bedroom condo for a little rest + relaxation. This condo included a full-sized kitchen, a large family room and a porch large enough to hold a 4-person dinner table. I could absolutely imagine splitting this condo in the future with our friends who just had a baby last year. The adults can hang out in one room while the kids have another all to themselves!
