My Pop has been going to Basin Harbor Club for over 30 years and I finally decided to go with him this past July. What can I say? This is a historic place. I love history, and all the history around there. The Maritime Museum is a stones throw away. The Red Mill had the best hamburger EVER! And if... More

We stayed here two nights and the place was beautiful! I caught two fish out of the harbor even!! The room was great. It was very clean and spaciaous. They got our cabin mixed up so we ended up getting a lakeview which was nice, except they forgot to put the cake i had ordered for my fiance's birthday in... More

We're so glad these guests enjoyed their visit. We agree that we should have gotten the birthday cake in place without having to be reminded about it. The housekeeping staff has been coached that trash needs to be picked up as soon as possible. Thank you to these guests for their review. We look forward to welcoming you back again... More

Stayed here for a business meeting in the fall. Beautiful property on the lake. Very friendly staff. Good food. The decor is adirondack style--fairly traditional. It is a historic hotel, so be aware not to compare it with modern hotels. Our room did not have a TV. There is wireless in the rooms (no charge) but the signal was fairly... More

Than you for pointing out that while BHC isn't for you, you can see the charm for others. The feel of the resort is much different in the summer when there is a lot more activity and guests spend the bulk of their time outdoors, too. We're grateful for your business.

We recently stayed at this delightful old resort with another couple. Our rooms were in the original lodge reminding us of mountain resorts from our youth (in the 50s) - plain decor - smallish rooms - window air conditioners - a bit dated. We enjoyed dinner in the main dining room. Although we were told that men must wear jackets... More

Thank you for your enthusiastic response to BHC! Remember that you will always get the best price for a room by booking directly with us rather than from a third-party site. We're sorry it was too windy for the cruise. The cottages are a good deal larger than rooms in the Lodge so why not try a two-bedroom, two-bath cottage... More

We stayed here for 2 nights as part of a Travel Department tour of New England in the Fall. Initially it was a bit of a shock to the system - my friend and I were put in a 2 bedroomed cottage - Sunrise. But we quickly got used to our cabin in the woods and loved the whole Basin... More

We're thrilled to know that these guests enjoyed their recent stay, and thank them for their enthusiastic critique. Thank you! We're unlike most places that motor coach tours visit so guests expecting to stay in one large building together may be surprised by our cottages. But as these guests pointed out, they truly liked the property. We're so grateful for... More

The Basin Harbor Club is located on Lake Champlain in Vergennes, VT. We've been there many times to attend the Fraser Management Contrary Opinion Forum which is held in early October every year. The food was okay, but, not as good as in past years. I saw one reviewer who complained the units were not clean. That is not our... More

It's hard to get the true flavor of a property when one's visit is largely spent in a meeting room. We're grateful that this guest choose to stay with us and sorry he didn't care for the food. Other attendees at this same event told us it had never been better. The event manager selects all the meals for the... More

Wake up people! What are you all talking about? This is an OLD hotel. We paid almost $600 for one night and for what?! Old, dirty cabin! My wife is a great dirt detector.

I called on a Saturday Columbus Day Weekend for a Saturday night reservation during fall foliage! Not the brightest move. However, I was pleasantly surprised to be able to get a 2 BDRM cottage for my family and I. It is really off the "main road"...more like a cottage/camping type community but beautiful right on the banks of Lake Champlain... More

Don't come expecting sleek and contemporary decor. Basin Harbor is a historic property in a gorgeous location on Lake Champlain. The property is extensive, with cottages of various sizes along the lake and dotted around the acreage. My husband and I have been coming to a fall financial conference here for almost 40 years. We prefer to stay in the... More

We spent 3 nights in the lodge and upon enterering the room the first thing I noticed was multiple dark stains all over the beige carpeting. Disgusting. The windows were dirty and very difficult to open with an outdate airconditioner in one of the windows blocking the "harbor" view. I spoke to a person staying in one of the cabins... More

We're sorry for the condition in which these guests found their room. We regret the carpet stains, which we have been unable to get out (what do people do to cause this sort of stain???), so the offending carpet is slated to be replaced for the 2014 season. The golf course is recovering, albeit slowly, from extreme rains and heat... More
