We had our daughter's wedding here and loved every minute. Anne, the event planner, made every detail of the weekend go seamlessly. The location could not be more perfect! The staff is friendly and professional and always tries to accomodate. We were were a large group of over 50 and all had the best time. The rooms are a wide... More

The location is out of this world ... but ... it's miles away from any where The room is really nice and comfy ... but ... the AC unit in the window makes it really noisy The dinner tonight is the worst value for money I have experienced in a very long time. $45 for a buffet that had nice... More

I couldn't sleep because I was on a foam mattress. the staff is incredible and the lake is... More

We regret that this family was not happy with their cottage, and wish they had given us the opportunity to offer another for their stay. With this year's unusually wet conditions, unfortunately there have been critters seeking dry lodgings (we are in a very rural location, after all) - the trap referenced was for mice (agrum mus), not rats, and...

Had a one-room cottage with a view of the harbor, absolute paradise. This was such a well run, customer oriented place with charm. People we met had been coming for years & now we know why! We will be back!

I found a really good deal for this place on Jetsetter so I was probably even more happy with this place for the price. I wish our stop here was the last stop on our New England road trip because you could not help but relax at this resort. We had room 102 (Room 2) which had a door that... More

How nice that you were able to cap off your New England tour with a stay at Basin Harbor! We are glad to know that you liked Lodge 2, and hope that you will consider staying in one of the 77 cottages for your next visit. Each is unique and will give you a different perspective of the resort. Thank... More

We had a one-room cottage with a view of the lake. The bedroom was ample and you could see the water just by rolling over. There was a dressing room and a small but complete bathroom. The living room was good sized and simply but well furnished. The level of detail was wonderful. There was a fireplace with the wood... More

We're delighted that you enjoyed your time in the lakeside cottage. Places like this could never be built in today's regulatory climate, so earlier generations made it possible for us to offer magical experiences. Thank you for choosing us. Sincerely, Pennie Beach Fourth Generation Host More

This beautiful destination is adored by longtime visitors and now we know why. The cottages are well-appointed and -maintained. (Everything feels freshly painted.Tasteful curtains.There are even shelves for shoes in the closets. I'm in love!)) We had something that needed to be fixed and a maintenance person came immediately (unlike most hotels). He said that he loves working here because... More

Very family friendly place. Relaxing with plenty to do including taking advantage of all what Lake Champlain has to offer (swimming, boating, water skiing) along with golf, biking, walking, exercise classes, gardening, games and good old fashion fun. Few criticisms keeping my rating shy of excellent. 'Formal' dinners were just so so in terms of quality. Food was less than... More

We're glad to know that these guests had an overall delightful stay. Without knowing more about when they were here, we deduce that they were here on a Saturday night as the dress code is indeed casual on Saturday nights in the Main Dining Room. If the guests reserved online, there is regrettably no way to show this as the... More

We spent six nights at this wonderful family resort. We stayed in a cottage with one bedroom, and a sitting room, overlooking Lake Champlain. The grounds are lovely, the activities are many and varied. Dogs, all friendly, were everywhere, as were families with children of all ages. I wish we'd known about this unique place when our children were young.... More

We're thrilled that this couple had such a nice visit. The Fourth of July is our favorite holiday, so we're all red-white-and-blue all the time! We wish you had found us when your kids were young, too, but keep us in mind when the grand children come along! Thank you for staying with us. Sincerely, Pennie Beach Fourth Generation Host More

I stayed here as part of a weeklong workshop. The facility is charming in an old New England way; you can tell the main building and the cabins have been built a while ago, but with care. The one word I would use to describe this place is "character," which goes for everything from the facilities to the grounds and... More

What a wonderful way to describe Basin Harbor Club as a "down time" resort! While there is lots to do, our own favorite activity is watching the Lake go by! It seems that this guest is far away, but we hope to have the privilege of welcoming him back with his family in the future. Sincerely, Pennie Beach Fourth Generation... More
