Basin Harbor Club and Resort Lake Champlain, Vermont

They Said It! “Blogger Blurps about Basin Harbor”

Posted on July 22, 2013

Basin Harbor is one of the most beautiful spots I’ve ever been and it is great to be able to call it work.  It’s so nice to get another perspective to the resort by guests I talk to or hearing from long time families that have been coming to BHC for decades. Being one of Basin Harbor’s bloggers, I loved reading about two recent trips that some other bloggers wrote about BHC! We would like to take this opportunity to thank them for enjoying the property as much as they did AND writing beautiful pieces about their and their family’s experiences here.

Within our first few hours at The Basin Harbor Club, the boys and I swam in the refreshing water of Lake Champlain, jumped on the giant trampoline, dove from the floating dock in the harbor, tried out a paddle boat, climbed a tree (just the boys on that one), played shuffleboard, rode bikes to the playground, and met a new friend. All this before 7:00 p.m., when we sat down to an artisan dinner served lakeside, enjoying a beautiful array of delicious foods and a cool breeze coming off the lake. If it sounds hectic, let me assure you, it was exactly the opposite. I’m not sure if it’s the layout of the Resort, the 1:1 staff-to-guest ratio, or the flow of activities at Basin Harbor, but everything is relaxed and easy. Despite our giddy desire to do everything at once, nothing felt rushed, and that held true for the duration of our stay.

After a full day on the lake, we rode over to the Harbor Fair, an abundant buffet of incredible food and a mini-country fair complete with a giant bouncy house, balloon animals, cotton candy, and lawn games. Satiated with great food and entertainment, we started to head back to our cabin but got sidetracked by another little boy the kids had befriended. As I sat on the back porch, they looped through the dusk on their bikes picking up other kids along the way.

Adventure Travel Mom also wrote a follow-up piece called Generations & Celebrations at Basin Harbor that had some treasures I want to share with you:
Most guests that I met last week were there to mark a celebration of some kind– an anniversary or milestone birthday– with their family. It seems cliche to say that Basin Harbor has something for everyone, but that really is what makes it such a perfect spot for multi-generaltional travel. Families seem to float through the day, reconvening for meals, heading off in separate directions for tennis or a painting class, or just hanging out at the waterfront.”
