For hours of cool fun ask the harbor crew about reserving the Tidewater 19 foot, seven-person powerboat. Keep cool aboard the EScape on an enjoyable one and a half hour narrated cruise as you explore the lake and learn about its colorful past and its geologic formations. Who knows if our maybe mythical, maybe not favorite lake monster, Champ, may decide to make himself known!

Basin Harbor History
In the late 1900’s round about when Aunt Ardelia Beach began taking guests into her farmhouse, the
temperance movement and prohibition led to the virtual elimination of Vermont’s commercial beer industry. Today, Vermont ranks first nationally in craft breweries per capita. At Basin Harbor enjoy Vermont made Switchback Ale and also Basin Harbor Ale made by the Otter Creek Brewery. Basin Harbor also serves Wolavers Wildflower Wheat, Von Trapp Lager and Long Trail Ale. The Concierge Desk has a wealth of information about brewery tours and tastings in our area.
