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

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

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

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

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
