In general, I am not a person who likes to vacation in the same place over and over, but my family keeps gravitating back to Basin Harbor Club (our third visit here) because we always have such an amazing time. This year was no different. We stayed in a cottage overlooking the lake and within easy walking distance to the... More

How nice that this family enjoys all that Basin Harbor has to offer! Since all the cottages are different from one another, it's always a good idea to call us so we can be sure to make the best arrangements for you. Online booking wasn't meant for a property like ours! Thank you for your return visit. Sincerely, Pennie Beach... More

Wonderful setting, beautiful grounds and fantastic staff. They really went out of their way to make our parents 50th anniversary special. Loved the age range from newborn to ancient! Live music, variety of dining options. Lobsters were fabulous.

While we have heard of the basin harbor club in the past from neighbors, this was our first trip but won't be our last. Recommended for families of any size and seemed to be great for reunions. It is located about 1/2 hour south of Burlington VT, just outside of Vergennes, a small, very quaint town. It is right on... More

Many thanks to this family for giving us a try - over the years word of mouth has been the hands down reason that new guests find us.

Reallly well done property. Huge, so lots of space to walk, explore, swim, play tennis, sail, kayak, golf, bike, hike, go to gym, or just sit in one of many hallmark Adirondack chairs and look at beautiful Lake Champlain. Food and staff were great. Not sure I would recommend as best place for a couple event, as the place is... More

This was our second summer family gathering at BHC. It was beautiful from start to finish. Probably the greatest challenge you'll face during your stay is not overeating amid amazing variety of food offered during each meal. From bingo to water skiing, from bicycling to frisbee...there's plenty of ways to relax and enjoy the options and opportunities. Special thanks to... More

I think I've figured out what is so special about BHC: LOVE. Since I just got married there, I can attest to the romance of the place; it is beautiful, peaceful and has many private nooks both indoors and outside. Of course a wedding is not just about the couple but also about the joining of families especially when their... More

Our extended family gets together every other year. We have gathered at the Homestead, the Balsams, Cape Cod, but all agree there is no better location than Basin Harbor. There was a time when three dozen of these old world resorts could be found in New England, they rarer now, but this is one of the finest. Location, lodgings, food... More

My husband and I stayed at Basin Harbor last evening and were very impressed. We stayed in a cottage on the water. The view was not to be beaten with expansive lake frontage and spectacular mountain views. The staff was friendly but not intrusive, a perfect balance. We walked the property and were completely surprised by the flower gardens and... More

We love family reunions! Everyone can be together, yet retreat to separate cottages for some alone time. And best yet, no one gets stuck having to do any work - we do it all for you! Many thanks for the kind words! See you this coming week! Sincerely, Pennie Beach Fourth Generation Host More
