My daughter was recently married at the Basin Harbor Club. Most of our wedding guests stayed at the Club, either in the main lodge, the Homestead lodge or the individual cottages. All of our guests were delighted with the beautiful scenery of the lake and the gardens, the variety of activities offered, the accommodations, the food, and the overall friendly... More

We gathered here on a weekend in June to celebrate the wedding of a family member. The setting couldn't be more conducive to an elegant, casual and fun gathering of the clan if it tried! Loved the meals, the staff and the gorgeous scenery.

Basin Harbor is awesome. There is SO much to do if being physically active is your thing: - golf, tennis, swimming (pool or lake), boating, hiking, biking, gym, etc. If R+R and eating delicious food is more your style, Basin Harbor is beautiful and as close to nature as you get. Lake Champlain is nestled in the Champlain valley between... More

Driving into the property you are greeted with an amazingly tranquil view of the lake. The grounds are filled with beautiful flowers and plants all established and groomed. We checked into the Homestead Building to be greeted with several large spiders along with a musty odor. The room had not been updated for sometime as it still contained the plastic... More

We regret that this guests's accommodations were not spotless. When one lives in a rural place, bugs are a fact of life, unfortunately, and are easily removed with a moment's notice. They can appear in a heartbeat. We realize that Basin Harbor isn't for everyone, and we hope these travelers found more suitable lodgings elsewhere in Vermont. We are glad... More

We attended a friend's wedding reception in Vergennes and we rented a room at Basin Harbor Club which was close by. We received an email from JetSetter and it included a pretty reasonable discount so we took advantage. First off, let me say that you need to understand what type of place this is. It's a quaint, quiet, off the... More

This is a resort in a remote but beautiful Vermont setting on Lake Champlain. It's a huge historic property with lake side cottages, and a wonderful old world lodge. It has something for everyone. We stayed in a small room in the main lodge. The AC didn't work well and was very noisy. The bathroom was very small but functional... More

We're glad the staff switched you to the boating package, and that you enjoyed your time on the lake. Lake Champlain is indeed a wonderful body of water. We hope you got to see the bald eagle's nest on your cruise. We apologize for the noisy air conditioner. The rooms in the Lodge are all quite small since it is... More

Our first stay. A lasting memory: an older gent driving by in a golf cart with a pair of golden retrievers aboard, both seeming to smile in the breeze. We stayed in the 1792 homestead building with lake views. Pretty space, quaint, clean and sunny. The staff is friendly and seemingly invisible except when needed. Dining in the main room... More

We're sorry that this guest didn't care for all the items at dinner. All the food is prepared here, it is fresh and local, and we regret that it wasn't what the guest had in mind. Our staff certainly erred when they advised the guest that there were no lemons available, and we've spoken with them about that. Basin Harbor... More
