My family and I have been members of Basin Harbor for the past 56 years. I have rented a seasonal dock and mooring for all 56 years. I have always been very impressed with the Beach family on how they continue to modify the venue to move forward with the demands of a seasonal resort. Since they established the Boat Club the Basin Harbor marina has made some amazing changes with their new dock system, fleet of rental boats, the addition of two new ski boats, Bungee Bar and most importantly the crew that Harbormaster Marty Ferris manages. As a seasonal dock renter I have been taken care of with the upmost respect and care. Marty and his crew are always there when I need something. It is also very comforting that the owners of Basin Harbor Bob Beach and his sister Penny Morris are always around making sure everything is taken care of but more importantly they take pride in what they provide and love to chat with everyone. They have always made an effort to reach out to my family for input and feedback on their resort. In my mind Basin Harbor and The Boat Club is the best spot to visit by boat on the entire Lake.

Coming and staying by boat at the Basin Harbor marina is a special treat to any boater. Nowhere do you have the offerings, protection and entertainment as BH offers. It's a place I want to be time and time again..

Wow! Everything under the sun and more. Docks with Power and water, free wi-fi and tons to do. Tennis Club, Golf Club, Scoops Shop for Ice Cream, Red Mill for Food, Burgee Bar for Adult Beverages, Spectaulary Outdoor Dinners, and the best Breakfast on either shore of Lake Champlain! They also offer showers and a laundry facility. This is a DO NOT MISS stop on the Lake. I hate to share it will fellow boaters as it is such a hidden gem!

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.
