History Throwbacks ~ Bringing the Guests from Town

Posted on November 12, 2013

BHC History Bit ~ Imagine getting off the sleeper – the overnight train – from New York, to be greeted by an enthusiastic BHC staff member for the long ride in a surrey pulled by a fast team. That smiling person was Allen Penfield Beach, Bob’s and my Grandfather. We’re sure he regaled the guests […]

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.

The Buzz from Basin Harbor

Posted on August 3, 2013

There are 100,000 or so new employees at BHC!  Peter Morris has become our resident apiarist, and his five hives are the only Certified Naturally Grown bees in Vermont (to date).  Peter uses IPM, integrated pest management, instead of chemicals to keep his bees healthy, no small feat when colony collapse is decimating apiaries all […]

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 […]

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 […]

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, […]
