Dogs are allowed to be in cottages while guests are out, and it is suggested that you keep the animal in a crate for its safety.

It is always our goal to have all amenities up and running during Social Season. Please feel free to call me at 800-622-4000 at any time for an update. I don't recall which amenities were not available at the end of last summer, but the Burgee Bar at the waterfront would be the most likely, regrettably. Golf, tennis, boating, retail, children's programming and dining would not be affected. Pennie Beach

I think Burlington is the nearest airport and it is about 45 minutes away- though not a bad drive at all. I don't know about the ski area you mentioned but you could plug it into your phone to find out.

Does it have a fitness center?
Wes, We have a fully equipped fitness center with ellipticals, treadmills, bike and a rowing machine. Along with a circuit of machines and free weights, we also have a movement studio for stretching and wellness classes. Add in the tennis, golf, walking trails, swimming and biking...we think your fitness needs will be covered! Hope to see you soon. Jen/Basin Harbor Club

"Ask if your cottage has been recently renovated if not you may want to ask for a cheaper rate."
"Cottages are good for groups/families."
"cottages can be far away from the main hotel, some have a lot of stairs"
"Not all cottages are lakefront. Each is distinct and the variety is fun."
"rooms facing the lake are great"
