All In One Place

Basin Harbor has on and off-site housing available for seasonal staff. We can accommodate up to approximately 130 employees in our housing units. However, employee housing is reserved for employees who live outside the local area. If you reside within thirty (30) miles of the resort, you will not be eligible for housing. You also must be at least 18 years of age to live in any housing units.  Housing is offered on a first come first serve basis.

Housing is a privilege  and is expected to be respected. We strive to provide you with a nice, welcoming place to live and expect you to leave it the way you found it.


Our rooms range in size from singles to rooms housing four people. Most of the accommodations are dorms, with some cottage style housing available on property. Basin Harbor offers male/female rooms as well as coed living arrangements. A motel located about 10 miles from Basin Harbor, is also available for staff that own cars

We have resident assistants for all our housing units. They are available to address your housing needs and enforce the Basin Harbor Housing Agreement. The resident assistant will also act as a liaison between employee and the Human Resource Department to ensure employee concerns are heard and acted on.


Housing Expectations

1) Keep rooms, bathrooms and shared living spaces neat and clean (there’s an inspection once each week).

2) Be friendly and courteous to our guests and fellow staff members.

3) Take your job seriously and strive to do your best at all times.

4) Be helpful and flexible at all times.

5) Respect your neighbors by not playing music loudly, engaging in illegal activities, violating housing rules and agreements.


All employees are responsible for a $100 housing deposit, $50 of which will be refunded at the end of the season if rooms are found to be in satisfactory condition at final inspection. A fee of $70 per week to cover the expense of food will be deducted from the employee’s paycheck. If an employee successfully fulfills their required commitment $10.00 per week will be refunded at the end of the season.  All housing charges are collected through a payroll deduction and will not begin or will be prorated until a full schedule has begun.

The room deposit is non refundable if you have a pet. Accommodations that allow pets are in very limited supply and approval by HR must be obtained to bring a pet into employee housing.  Failure to disclose that you have a pet in employee housing is reason for termination of housing privileges.

Our staff are encouraged to take advantage of the amenities and benefits the resorts offers to our guests.  With that privilege we do expect that staff will conduct themselves in a professional appropriate manner whether they are on or off the clock.  Any inappropriate behavior off duty will be addressed with your department supervisor and the Human Resource Department.


Staff who reside in housing are provided with 3 meals a day. Meals are served buffet style in the Staff Dining Room at the Lodge. All staff are expected to bus their own dishes and utensils and keep the dining room and buffet area picked-up. The Chef makes an effort to prepare meals that are varied, healthy, and good to eat and encourages your suggestions and comments. Staff are invited to eat in the Guest Dining Room on occasion during the summer.  Staff who do not live on property have the option to purchase a meal plan and dine in the Employee Cafeteria.

What To Bring

Spending your summer at Basin Harbor Club is much like heading off to college.  We can provide linens and towels for you but feel free to bring your own if you prefer.  The rooms will be furnished with dressers, chair, nightstand, lighting, bed and pillow.  We would recommend if you can to bring your own pillow.  We suggest that you not bring a lot of valuables with you.  It is the employee’s responsibility to lock their rooms and BHC is not responsible for any lost or stolen goods.

Small room refrigerators are available for a small fee, and we do not guarantee that we will have for everyone.  If you wish to bring your own small refrigerator that is allowed.  You may have a coffee pot or a small microwave in your room, but we do not allow hot plates or hot pots.
