We are very happy to welcome the Stookey Reunion to Basin Harbor this week! Today we have John & Katherin Stookey, Stephen & Laura Johnson, and Hobey & Kristin Stuart coming in! Basin Harbor would like to wish Mr. Case Bradberry a very Happy Birthday! He is turning 11 today and is here celebrating with his grandparents and brother, Will! And of course welcome to all of our wonderful guests. We are so lucky to be able to spend our summer with you!
Start off your morning with a thorough workout in our Boot Camp, which makes use of a variety of outdoor elements throughout the property. Like to sleep in? That’s OK! We have a workout for you late risers too. Total Conditioning will get your heart pumping and your muscles stretched and ready for the rest of the day’s activities! The Treehouse Wellness Center is open all day in case you just want to go in and lift some weights or run on the treadmill.
Our very own Naturalist, Matt, will be your trusty tour guide this morning for the Kayak Trek! The waterfront will supply you with everything you need…a single or tandem (that’s a double) kayak, double-sided paddle, and life jacket. Just bring your excitement, energy, and maybe some sunscreen! This afternoon Matt will be leading the Adirondack Hike. You’ll take a short boat ride across the lake to New York. From there you will be able to explore the various trails that are a part of the Adirondack Park. The trails are mostly wooded and moderate in intensity. Don’t forget the bug spray and your camera, as there are sure to be stunning views from the top of the mountain; or from the sky if the mosquitoes carry you away!
There is a lot going on over at the Golf Shop today! We have a clinic open to everyone of every level. Our Pros will be focusing on Full Swing this afternoon, but are open to suggestion for whatever our guests would like to work on! Ladies, there is also a clinic just for you today! We have PGA Director of Instruction, Bob Prange, who is teaching daily lessons of Full Swing or Short Game. Sessions will last for two and a half hours. Check in with the Golf Shop to sign up for lessons or set up tee times!
Tonight is the Harbor Fair! This is a North Dock dinner accompanied by great activities and games for the whole family. There is face painting, lawn games, Dux the Balloon Man, and much more! Our delicious Buffet Dinner has something for everyone. There is a variety of cold salads and of course the Barbecue Cookout station where you can find all manner of locally grown and marinated fare!
Did you know…That of the 90 million pounds of marshmallows Americans buy every year, 50% of those are toasted over the fire during the summer! Come on down to the North Dock beach tonight to toast your share at our Campfire. Grab some marshmallows, graham crackers, & chocolate to make some delectable S’mores!
This week Middlebury is hosting their 36th Annual Festival on the Green! There will be musical performances, a street dance and much more! Take little drive south and check out the festivities in this lovely town. See the Concierge for more information or directions.
