Closing Up, Battening Down

Posted on October 29, 2012

After a wonderful 126th year, BHC is now closed for the season.  If you missed Rocktoberfest on October 20, you won’t want to next year!  This beer, bacon and bands extravaganza was truly fun for all and Mother Nature gave us a lovely evening (after all that rain), and while it was muddy under foot, […]

Basin Harbor Greens, Part One: Promoting the Land

Posted on September 14, 2012

Basin Harbor Club was founded by people who loved the land, from Ardelia Beach and her gardens and Allen Penfield Beach with his farm, to the nature-minded guests who still flock here to take in the pristine natural splendor. It’s no secret that Basin Harbor is one of the prettiest places in Vermont. The proof […]

Fun with Week 26!

Posted on July 9, 2012

Week 26 had another magical week! Captain Brian had a great week exploring Snake Den Harbor with the daily EScape Cruise. He was able to show and share with our guests two baby Bald Eagles, along with the parents. There is an Osprey nest near by as well. If you don’t have a chance to […]

Happy Weekend

Posted on May 26, 2012

It’s hard to imagine a more wonderful day than this – clear, warm and sunny!  Couldn’t be better for Middlebury College’s Pre-Commencement events, the Fisher-Baker Wedding or the LCI benefit concert with cellist Benjamin Elton Capps. The Main Dining Room is open for dinner this weekend (and nightly beginning June 15th), and we were able […]

Basin Harbor Club’s buzz

Wow, things are really humming around here – the Golf Course has been open for two weeks due to the early spring.  It’s gotten some much-needed rain so keep moving when you’re standing on the turf – it’s growing that fast! The Red Mill is all ready to open for business on Friday, May 11. […]

Spring Update…

Posted on April 13, 2012

What a beautiful day today! With the sun shining and the temperature rising, we know it’s almost time to open, 34 days to be exact. Here are a few things we’re working on… The Harbor Store is currently undergoing a new paint job.  The bathroom in Lodge 7 and Tanglewood are almost complete with a […]

Spring Reflections

Posted on April 6, 2012

On this brilliant sunny day we see one of the very first signs of spring! While Pennie and I are driving back from Vergennes, we see the first osprey of the season with twigs in it’s talons setting up a new nest on the far side of Otter Creek. Always an early sign of spring […]

Summertime!

Posted on March 19, 2012

Greetings from your BHC Family – It may be a false spring but all of us here at Basin Harbor are loving these balmy, sunny days – it’s truly weather that you’d enjoy tremendously in May when we’ve just opened!  Still, I’m not taking my snow tires off just yet – I recall late season […]

Winter Fun

Posted on February 28, 2012

Some people wonder what we do here all winter.  No skiing this year, although March is often the snowiest month, so we’re keeping our fingers crossed on that score.  We love food and cooking, so we spend a lot of time in the kitchen! We – well, I – love to buy cookbooks, and I’m […]
