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

We spent a few nights at Basin Harbor, and couldn't have been more pleased with the staff, or with the utterly charming lakeside cottage assigned to us. The grounds are well manicured, and the view of Lake Champlain, and the Adirondacks was superb! This is a Must-do.

Very calming and peaceful, a wonderful and much needed therapy for the mind, body and soul. We spent quality time with each other, with members of our family and with our golden retreiver who also really enjoyed the hospitality and the doggie beach. We all made lots of kind acquaintances (including our dog!). The food was excellent and the presentation... More

How nice that these guests and their dog had a relaxing stay! Many Basin Harbor staff members have dogs, and we're sure these guests met Piper, the new golden retriever puppy! Thank you for the praise for the food and wine. We're always delighted when guests appreciate the fresh, local food we serve, and the eclectic wines on the list.... More

Fifth visit. We like it here. The prices could be a little bit lower, but they have a location and a large staff that seems a mixture of Vermonters and Eastern Europeans. They are mostly all very friendly and good at their jobs. The Ranger Room lunch is expensive, plentiful and delicious buffet style. Eastern European servers were very pleasant... More

These guests also completed the questionnaire that Basin Harbor sends to departing guests, and we apologized for the items that needed attention in Mayfair 1 and 4. Please remember to let us know about things that need fixing while you are here so we can fix it during your stay. We're glad the guests enjoyed the food, and that at... More

Each of the cabins are beautiful and unique, no two are the same. We had a two bedroom water front cabin a short walk to tennis, water craft and the main dining areas. Ours had two bedrooms, a living room and a water front porch. The rooms have no TV, but do have free WIFI. some have radios, ours did... More

Thank you for this nice review! One of the best things about Basin Harbor, as this guest points out, is that once you arrive you may just park your car and walk everywhere. And what better way to enjoy the great out doors? Sincerely, Pennie Beach Fourth Generation Host More

Just got back from the Basin Harbor Club last night after spending a September weekend there with a car club outing. Lovely grounds, excellent food, and very attentive service from all. It would have been perfect except for one very disappointing thing: we could hear every word, sneeze and cough from the guests in the room next to ours. We... More

We're glad to know that these guests enjoyed their stay with the car club. There certainly were some beautiful automobiles here with their people! We regret that noisy neighbors impacted the visit. We know it's a hassle to move but we would have been happy to move these guests to a more quiet cottage. Feedback is always good to have,... More

We stayed just one night in the Homestead building and got a deal through Expedia. I would not have wanted to pay full price for this room. No tvs in the rooms, almost treacherous stairway up to the 2nd floor, and the floor in the room was so crooked and out of level that the foot of the bed was... More

This guest is correct that she/he had one of the smallest rooms at Basin Harbor Club. We're an historic property so all the rooms and cottages are different from one another. We hope these folks will consider a return visit for a stay in one of our larger lakeside cottages. We're glad they had a nice time, and are grateful... More

This was our first time here and we are quite pleased with our experience. This hotel lived its "better" years a few years ago, but it still has a lot of charm and character. The employees are ALL nice and so pleasant. The food is excellent without being extravagant. The surroundings are beautiful. We stayed in one of the buildings... More

Stayed here twice. First time was last summer during busy season. Lots of families, lots of people at the small beach, was given a small but adequate room/cottage. This time stayed after Labour Day so it was quieter and a much nicer room. Several rooms were updated over the past year and they did need it. This room was larger,... More

Thank you for making another trip for your second visit of the season! Basin Harbor Club is an historic resort so all rooms and cottages are different from one another, and the guest is correct that some have been more recently renovated. We're glad to know you enjoyed the cottage! We're grateful for your comments, and for your support. Sincerely,... More

I would make sure everyone checks their bill at the end because they were going to charge us for the room plus tax and we already paid it through you. Also be aware that jackets & ties are required at the main restaurant. Food was outstanding.

We're not sure about the billing issues this guest had, and we gather they were satisfactorily resolved. We apologize for the misunderstanding. When a guest reserves online, we may not have the ability to contact her/him before arrival. Our staff needs to do a better job explaining things at check in, and we have given them coaching in that regard.... More
