There is lots to do today, beginning with our Junior Clinics this morning! Let your kids learn the Golf & Tennis basics from our pros. Or try out Pi-Yo in the Fitness Center. This class packs it all into one workout so you can build muscle tone and increase mobility, while burning calories!

Join our fabulous florist, Claire, as she walks you through the fine art of Floral Arranging! Space is limited in the Flower Shop, so make sure to swing by the Concierge to sign up!

The summer may be winding down, but our amazing locally grown cuisine is not! Make sure to make your reservation for dinner early. Get dressed in your best and come to the Main Dining Room for a delicious and classy meal with views of our gorgeous Harbor! Feeling more casual this evening? Head to the Red Mill Restaurant for some fabulous local fare in this distinctive setting converted from an old sawmill…maybe you’ll even see some planes taxing on the airstrip!

Take advantage of this beautiful day to set sail on the Narrated EScape Cruise! Let our trusty Captain show you just why we love our little bit of Lake Champlain so much. You can enjoy the wind and sun while learning a bit more about the history of the area!

Schedule Change
For the remainder of the season our regular Golf Clinic will take place at 10am! Talk to the folks in the Golf Shop to sign up for the clinic, a private lesson, or to reserve a tee-time!

Beyond Basin Harbor
Feel like venturing off property today? There is plenty to do out there too! Vergennes is our own “Little City” and only 10 minutes away. There is great food and quaint shops right on the Main Street. Middlebury is only 25 mintues away and boasts a beautiful “downtown”, with shopping, history, and art, all within ear (and eye) shot of the breathtaking falls! Stop into the Drop-In brewery or Lincoln Peak Vineyard for some delicious tastings. Or head north and make a quick stop at Dakin Farms for more delectable Vermont products. Take a little jaunt up to Burlington to check out the museums, shops, and breweries in our “Queen City”. Our local legends also host factory tours regularly, so don’t miss out on Champlain Chocolate Factory, Ben & Jerry’s Factory, or the Vermont Teddy Bear Factory! Ask the Concierge for directions and information.
