Basin Harbor added all new dock space a couple of years ago and can now accommodate a few larger power and sailboats on a section of the new floatingndocks.
This historic resort is a first rate family location but we found everything to be just as nice for adults.
The restaurants were excellent and we enjoyed our visit to the Lake Champlain Maritime Museum - great way to catch up the history of Lake Champlain.
We took a side trip on our dinghy up Otter Creek to Vergennes. The trip up the creek was enjoyable but the destination was a disappointment. The falls are dramatic but the docks were old and partially on shore due to low water. We walked to town for ice cream and a few groceries. We were happy we took the dinghy rather than planned to stay in our boat.
Only issue at Basin Harbor was bathroom for boaters - only one limited location that was shared with the waterfront. Modern fixtures but difficult to shave and shower floor had sand from the beach. They need to add a dedicated bath/shower for boaters to be considered first class.
We enjoyed our visit and recommend this location.

Great stay! Meticulous grounds and marina! Staff was great! Marty the harbormaster was wonderful! We stayed on our boat but many other options for non boaters! Would definitely stay again!
Thank you very much for taking the time to write a review of your stay with us at Basin Harbor, and for recognizing Marty, our wonderful Harbormaster. As you mentioned, you can stay on your boat and take full advantage of our 700 acre property, or dock with us and stay in one of 150 accommodations (some of which are lakefront cottages on Lake Champlain). We look forward to welcoming you back for another visit in the future.
