I called on a Saturday Columbus Day Weekend for a Saturday night reservation during fall foliage! Not the brightest move. However, I was pleasantly surprised to be able to get a 2 BDRM cottage for my family and I. It is really off the "main...More

We're glad this family had fun at Harborween, Basin Harbor's annual Halloween celebration. Night lighting is on the list for improvement so these guests will see a nice difference for their next visit. Thank you for joining us over Columbus Day weekend. Sincerely, Pennie Beaach...More

Don't come expecting sleek and contemporary decor. Basin Harbor is a historic property in a gorgeous location on Lake Champlain. The property is extensive, with cottages of various sizes along the lake and dotted around the acreage. My husband and I have been coming to...More

We spent 3 nights in the lodge and upon enterering the room the first thing I noticed was multiple dark stains all over the beige carpeting. Disgusting. The windows were dirty and very difficult to open with an outdate airconditioner in one of the windows...More

How nice that these guests chose to stay with us as part of their participation in the Color Vibe Fun Run. The room they occupied is indeed the smallest room on the property so typically people who choose it don't plan to spend much time...More

2 night stay in main lodge room overlooking the lake. Slant in the floor of our room quite noticeable, hallways narrow, carpet worn, floors creaked, so the property is showing its age. OK for 2 nights, but anything longer would suggest a cabin. No fridge,...More

These guests stayed in the Lodge which dates from the 1870s, so yes, the floors do slant and creak. Cottages are more up to date and larger. We're so glad to know that food and service were enjoyed, and that the guests liked the beautiful...More

Dogs are allowed to be in cottages while guests are out, and it is suggested that you keep the animal in a crate for its safety.
