A Seasonal Farewell from the Beach Family

Posted on November 1, 2013

The leaves are falling off the trees as if on cue – appropriate now that we’ve closed our doors for BHC’s 127th season.  After a rather wet start that left the cement docks under water in varying degrees until Labor Day, the balance of the summer and fall were just delightful, day after day. We’re […]

Osprey Dance

Posted on August 30, 2013

Our Grounds Superintendent, Charlie Messenger had some personal time with the “Basin Harbor Club” ospreys this morning. We put a nesting platform up on our golf course several years ago and we have been so very lucky to have attracted a pair of osprey. These pictures were right before he saw a doe and pair […]

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.

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, […]

A Wine Dinner to Remember.

Posted on July 17, 2012

Imagine an intimate dinner in the Garden Room, overlooking the beds of herbs and edible flowers that are showing up on your very plate. Imagine a bowl of lobster potage paired with a buttery California Chardonnay, while an earthy Oregon Pinot Noir brings to life the local wild mushrooms in your homemade tagliatelle pasta. Imagine […]
