Happy Fourth of July!

Posted on June 30, 2013

Next to Thanksgiving, July Fourth is our favorite holiday.  It’s all about people – families and good friends getting together to enjoy one another’s company (with good food of course!).  And we love all the red, white and blue clothing! We always get a lump in our throat at the flag-raising and singing those wonderful […]

2013 Golf Updates

Posted on February 22, 2013

Last February, we posted pictures of us playing golf in February. This year, we write to you hovering over space heaters and anticipating more snow. The course has a thick blanket of white on top of the fairways and greens,  leading us to think we won’t be out there this early this year. That said, […]

Cold!

Posted on January 21, 2013

Greetings from Basin Harbor – The January thaw has ended and cold weather has  returned to Vermont.  As we look forward to a week of temperatures predominately  in the single digits or less, it’s interesting to note that the Lake froze over (in the narrows where we are) during this week in 2000, 2005 and […]

Christmas Cookies. A Baker’s Dozen.

Posted on December 18, 2012

Being a three season resort has its pros and cons. We really enjoy the respite of the winter months, where the daily routine is dog walking, dog dodging and office chatter. It’s all about the planning and the looking ahead. Thinking sun and fun in the frozen surroundings of the lake, all the while praying […]

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, […]

The Ultimate Family Reunion at Basin Harbor

Posted on October 8, 2012

Family is family, they say, no matter how much time or distance gets in between. Last week, Basin Harbor hosted a “family” of 185 girl scouts for their Button Bay Roundup Reunion, a gathering commemorating the 50th Anniversary of the scouts’ original Roundup back in 1962.
