Resort News The lake is at its warmest, a balmy 72 degrees. It’s a good day for a cooling swim or fun on the trampoline. Cooler still, take a turn at waterskiing and wakeboarding with our Ski Nautique water skiing boat. Yolo paddle boards are new this season and the harbor staff is ready to get you started. Explore in small craft, canoes, kayaks, Sunfish sailboats or small outboards. Reserve the Tidewater seven-person powerboat and venture further out on the lake. For cool and comfort, Captain Brian’s narrated Escape cruise departs at 2:30. Just maybe you’ll see the eagle fledglings and the osprey youngsters on Otter Creek.

What could be better on a hot day than a seat in the shade, great views and an ice cream cone in your hand. Today’s soft flavors at the Harbor Store are pina colada and chocolate. You’ll find a treasure trove of goodies there including soft and hard ice cream, milkshakes and ice-cream novelties, cold drinks, candies galore, water toys, logo tees and plenty more to browse.

Perk up summer meals at home with some Basin Harbor Cooking Class expertise. Rumor has it we’ll be doing Ravioli on Tuesday, Gnoochi on Wednesday and Marinated Eggplant on Friday. Check ahead though just in case some delectable local product may have derailed our chef’s fancy for the day.

Enjoy yourself safely and remember your helmet when bicycling? And when driving please take it slow to avoid strolling guests, bicyclists, playing children, guest pets, bustling staff and our valued wildlife. We thank you!
