We enjoyed our stay. It was a great weekend. lovely people, great food. Lots of outdoor activities. We stayed at the lodge but we'll rent a bungalow next time so we can bring our dog. Very relaxing. Greatly recommend!

Basin Harbor was our chosen location for a family reunion, and it has been wonderful. It is an historic resort that has kept its traditional stamp while also keeping perfectly up to date. Our group has an age span of 75 years, and everyone has had a great time. Perfectly sited and appointed cabins. Excellent activities. Outstanding food. Competent, professional,... More

We are grateful that this family chose Basin Harbor for its family reunion. Get togethers are much more enjoyable when we do all the work and you get to have all the fun. As the guest said, even with a broad range of ages, there is something to amuse everyone, and the culinary staff was thrilled by the positive comments... More

The Basin Harbor Club is located about an hour's drive from the Burlington Airport. It is on the VT side of Lake Champlain on a small harbor. It is really a unique resort and has been operating for 120+ years. Lodging is either in the historic lodge or one of the many cottages. They are in various locations across the... More

Had a Fantastic time here last weekend. We were attending a wedding and the scenery just blew us away. We went on a cruise around the resort. We enjoyed drinks while birdwatching on Lake Champlain. The club is definitely platinum grade. It is centered on a Homey-family like feeling and is filled with smiles from the receptionist to the servers.... More

Our family recently stayed at the Basin Harbor Resort. It was a convenient location for our graduation activities in Middlebury, VT. Our entire stay at the resort was excellent. All of the staff were friendly, greeted us at every turn, and went out of their way to make us feel at home. Both the on site breakfast buffet and restaurant... More

We cannot say enough good things about BHC. We stayed at BHC for our daughter's graduation from Middlebury College. We are so glad we did. Wonderful accommodations, wonderful people, service and plenty of activities. We golfed as a family on Friday, boat cruise on Lake champlain, family lunch at the Red Mill ....

I rarely review hotels/resorts I stay at (in fact, I never have), but I felt that BHC deserves special mention. The cabins are spread out over a 450 acre campus, with many cabins fronting on the extraordinarily beautiful Lake Champlain. We stumbled upon BHC when looking for lodgings for our grandson's Middlebury graduation, and after all hotels in Middlebury were... More

Of all the places I've staid, I would have to say that the Basin Harbor Club is the most unique. This venue is actually a sprawling campus that holds much more than just the main hotel. There is a separate lodge, many cabins, a separate exercise building, separate restaurant besides the one in the main hotel, a golf course, tennis... More

We're so glad to see that this guest appreciated the sense of place that Basin Harbor offers. The spread out campus allows people to spread out and enjoy the environment - although things are sufficiently close together that it really isn't necessary to drive once you arrive. Many thanks for your review - we look forward to welcoming you back... More

I happened to go BHC two years in a row with a group of friends - everybody loved it, our group's ages ranged from 3 y.o. to 65 y.o., and it was just great! Lots of activities, great food, picturesque landscapes - perfect blend!
