We LOVED getting married at Basin Harbor - BEST decision of our entire wedding planning process. Anne, Lauren, and the entire Basin Harbor staff were incredible to work with and took care of every detail while staying calm throughout the process and fielding my many questions - we couldn't have asked for a better team to work with. We had a wedding planner as well, but honestly, I would have trusted Anne and her team, as they know the place from years of hosting weddings, but still take the time to get to know each couple and facilitate a personal touch. The best thing about BH is that all guests can stay onsite - from the time our guests arrived, people didn't have to think about a car until departure on Monday. We got married Labor Day weekend, and the extra day allowed for maximum lounging, boating, and activities galore. The Red Mill was amazing, food was wonderful, our guests all raved about Basin Harbor for months afterwards and still want to return annually. Thank you for the most magical weekend of our lives, Basin Harbor!

Hotel's Favorite
My family had a truly wonderful vacation at Basin Harbor. Our kids ages 7 and 9 loved every moment of the vacation. They had a great time in kids camp, where they met friends who they played with all week, they enjoyed swimming in Lake Champlain and jumping on the water trampoline and the lawn games. Our kids even learned to fish. My wife and I had great time playing tennis and exploring the property. The meals were wonderful especially the dockside dinner and the amazing breakfast buffet. I can't recommend Basin Harbor enough as a family vacation spot. It is such a wonderful sport for the whole family. There is so much to do that both adults and children will never be bored. One final note, the staff is unbelievably helpful and goes above and to help the guests. When we had a situation beyond our control, the staff was so helpful and allowed us to have a little bit later of a check out.

Thank you for sharing your experience! We are delighted that you had such a great stay. Families have long made new friends while vacationing here and some camp friends even have ended in marriages if you can believe that? We will hopefully look forward to seeing you again next summer.

We brought a big, bright colorful Sikh/Indian wedding with all customs, traditions, food, and music, and BH went above and beyond to accommodate all the details that mattered so much to us. We were a new client profile - they knew it and we knew it and there was nothing but joy in the learning, creating and inventing that was needed to bring this to life. We also chose BH because we wanted a place that was woven into our history and future chapters we have yet to write. This place will forever feel like home for us, and the team will forever feel like family. We couldn’t be happier with our experience with BH and more grateful for this shared history!!!

Basin Harbor was the wedding venue of our dreams! Every step of the way we were supported, received timely responses, and every detail was executed perfectly. I couldn't recommend Basin Harbor more. Lauren and Anne are the most thoughtful planners, wedding planning can be a stressful event but they were so on top of everything that it put us (and our families) at ease. If you're on the hunt for a wedding venue - look no further. Basin Harbor has the beautiful and scenic location, the amenities, the numerous activities for everyone, and a great list of vendor partners (Ben & Jerry's ice cream truck was a hit!). Thank you to the BH team, we'll be back next summer!

We definitely have "location" here! We are just a short drive from some amazing activities in the area. In the summer months we offer a boat ride to the Adirondack Park, were we offer guided hikes. Something to add to your bucket list if you visit again!

We attended a wedding at Basin Harbor. Everything was perfect. The wedding was elegant and the resort was lovely. The staff was amazing, and our accommodations were immaculate. (We had a one bedroom cottage) I would highly recommend.

Treetops is a fantastic stone cottage located on a hill with two decks overlooking Lake Champlain. Its relative seclusion allows one to completely relax, yet only a few minutes walk to the main campus. Service at Ardelia's for their buffet breakfast is prompt and courteous. All the staff at Basin Harbor exhibit a friendly, professional attitude. Only complaint was the loss of internet service due to heavy rain which resulted in more book reading seated next to a cozy fire burning in the massive field stone fireplace.

That was some rain storm! 3 inches in one day! While we are all so used to being plugged in, it does feel good sometimes to disconnect and read a book. We are glad that you enjoyed your stay despite Mother Nature having different plans for us all.

We had our wedding at Basin Harbor in September 2023. Everything was amazing. The property and all the activities it has to offer are so fun and unique for a wedding weekend. Our guests had such a blast as well. The cottages were cute and for the most part well-kept. The entire staff at Basin Harbor are so incredibly thoughtful and kind. I couldn't recommend this place more for a wedding or event or a weekend away with the family.
