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

My husband and I spent July 4th weekend in VT for golf with friends. Spent first two nights at the Sugar Lodge at Sugarbush which wasn't very good. Had a tee time at Basin Harbor's golf course on Saturday so decided to stay over instead of driving back to sugarbush after golf. We didn't know what to expect but figured... More

Our family has been holding our large Family Reunions for 59 years at Basin Harbor, and it just gets better each time! The Beach Family and the staff of BHC ensures that every guest is happy when they leave. As Chair of our reunion, I have had many opportunities to take our business elsewhere, and to just "TRY" somewhere different,... More

Having known about the Basin Harbor Club for years, we were excited to have our first stay. And to say we were disappointed, was a minor understatement. The grounds and facilities were beautiful. Used one of the bars and the gym and they were both in great shape. The grounds were meticulously maintained. I wish we could say the same... More

We wish this guest had asked to see another room! We deeply regret that housekeeping hadn't done a thorough job with this cottage and would have made it right at the time or moved them to an alternate cottage. It is nice to know that the couple liked the resort overall and we hope they will consider another visit. Sincerely,... More

Offers waterskiing and tubing, bikes, kayaks, canoes and sailboat rentals. Views are spectacular!!! Most staff are very welcoming. Cabins are clean and tidy. Took the kids tubing on the ski supreme with... More

We are horrified by your initial impression of the Red Mill, and we have given some intensive coaching to the young lady in question. This is not a typical experience! We have given this staff member intensive coaching on how to conduct herself with guests. We apologize for her rudeness. Hope your meal was tasty. Thank you for persevering in... More

For at least 5 years me and my family of 9 (consisting of a variety of interests) has kept coming back to the BHC. We like to look into what Basin harbor has to offer.

This place was such a wonderful surprise and exceeded our expectations. It was truly like stepping back into time. There are no televisions in the room which is a plus, pushing guests to explore all the activities offered. Old fashioned fun, with a gorgeous bay spot on lake Champlain with trampolines on the water, diving board on the lake, antique... More

We're thrilled that this family enjoyed the magic that is Basin Harbor Club. Kids love the activities just for them at the various age-appropriate daily camps and parents can participate in more adult focused things like boating, tennis and golf. It's nice to know you enjoyed the food and the great sense of place that round out the experience. Come... More

If you're looking for a flat golf course in VT, this is the one. We played it recently for a charity tournament. The tournament was very well organized and went off without a hitch. The hotel staff were incredibly friendly (a vibrant hello from everyone and very informed and helpful). The hotel's buildings sprawl along Lake Champlain and have beautiful... More

Thank you for helping the charity by playing in their tournament. We're glad you liked the course and the friendly staff. Interestingly, there used to be a view of the lake on the 15th hole before trees on the State Park's land grew up to obscure the view! We hope you'll return to stay in one of our newly renovated...
