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!

A friend who is in the travel/tourism business (as am I) brought us to the Basin Harbor Club. We met Tim Lynk who was so accommodating and took us for a tour of the grounds! AMAZING! The grounds, the scenery, and all of the charm the cabins have to offer are so very unique. We are planning a trip back... More

We visited Basin Harbor Club to celebrate a friends birthday. The grounds were beautiful, the waterfront quaint...and the rooms comfortable (although a bit outdated) There were 2 weddings happening at out time of stay and our room was directly behind the reception tent of one wedding. We enjoyed the fun and noise as we were looking for a fun weekend.... More

Our group had two cottages for 5 days at Basin Harbor. First the positives: The cottages were quaint and well maintained. One had excellent views of the harbor and the Palisades Cliffs. The other did not. The buffet breakfasts were very good and meals at the on-site Red Mill restaurant were very reasonable and good. The staff at the Red... More

It's nice to know you enjoyed most aspects of your visit last fall. We apologize for the lack of hot water, and the spotty houskeeping. Did the staff offer you alternate accommodations? We hope so. We're glad you found your cottages well maintained and clean, and that the Red Mill staff took good care of you so you could watch... More

My family consists of a college junior, a high school junior, two nearly senior parents and a middle aged Chow-Shepard mix. ALL of us enjoyed our stay at the Basin Harbor Club.

My wife, 3 year old son and our dog just spent one night here this weekend. We had a one bedroom cottage, the Edenhall. VERY expensive, and while I'm not sure anything would quite be worth what we paid, I'd have to say that if this wasn't such a splurge for us we would be back more often. Don't expect... More

A unique property for sure. A lot of individual cabins plus rooms in the main lodge and a few homestead buildings where our room was. Utterly charming. Wifi good. No TVs in any rooms which was fine with us but may annoy some. Great food at the Old Mill on site.

BHC takes the time to make its guests feel special. The boat tour provides an excellent overview of Lake Champlain. The grounds are meticulously maintained. The cottages are comfortable, relaxing, and pleasant. What better way to pamper yourself? We will return!

How nice to know that you enjoyed your visit! We're not sure what you meant in saying the cottage's deck was under the lake - maybe the lake was under the deck? Thank you for coming to stay this fall! Sincerely, Pennie Beach Fourth Generation Host More

This was our second year overnighting at the Basin Harbor Club on our way home after a New England vacation. We absolutely loved it both years. We stayed in the main lodge. Both the lodge and our room were lovely, comfortable, tastefully decorated, and immaculate. This may be an historic inn, but everything was fresh and well maintained. Amenities in... More

This is the second summer in a row we have stayed at BHC, and it was just wonderful. It's a great family atmosphere, or for couples. The little lake harbor and the main hotel are quaint and quintessentially New England. You can lounge around under a tree by the lakeshore, swim in the lake, hop on a kayak or just... More

Thank you so much for your kind words about your stay. Choice among cottages is only difficult at times due to the large number of returning guests, and our reservations staff always tries to steer guests toward times of the best selection. There are inevitable cancellations that free things up, too. We're sorry the D J for the weekly Beach... More
