The hotel issued additional charges by mistake, admitted they were erroneous charges, told me we would receive a full credit and then failed to process it in full. In addition, the attitude of the manager was insulting who looked down on us because we questioned the charge made in error. We had expected fair and honest business practices from such... More

Please contact Basin Harbor, and me, directly to resolve this matter satisfactorily. The manager whom the guest refers to was a seasonal staff member, and is no longer here. We aren't sure who you are, and we can make things better if you give us the opportunity to. Sincerely, Pennie Beach Fourth Generation Host More

I just returned from a great family vacation to the Basin Harbor Club. The BHC is a classic resort, located in a beautiful part of the country. I loved this place for a number of reasons. It's old-school - the hotel is part of the historic hotels of America, and many of the guest cottages are old stone or wood... More

A group of 22 went to Vermont on a biking trip. This hotel was right on Lake Champlain with beautiful views, a maritime museum close by and water sports to amuse. The museum is not to be missed. There is a replica of the Philadelphia ship and my husband and I were fortunate enough to see it when a very... More

We were on a group tour for New England Fall Color and Abrams Travel had chosen this property. We started with a fabulous meal served by the cutest, friendliest young blond girl.

My company booked many rooms and conference rooms for a week for budget meetings. The conference rooms were setup to our specifications and everything ran very smoothly for the conferences.

It's nice to know that your company's budget meetings went well, and that you enjoyed your stay. Sadly, we could have made arrangements to offer you a different room or cottage if we had known that you found your bed uncomfortable, and we could have improved the speed at which you got hot water. We apologize for your discomfort. Thanks... More

Beware that much of this property is very dated. We were given a room in the main lodge with two very narrow old twin beds.

It is always a good idea to ask for different accommodations if you aren't satisfied with the room you are first shown, and we're sorry this guest didn't inquire. It seems that these guests were here for only one night. We regret that they didn't let us know that they were unhappy. Sincerely, Pennie Beach Fourth Generation Host More

I booked this through booking.com. I forgot to cancel the first night but, cancelled the second night. They still charged me the total $818. I am sure they rebooked to room because it was a busy weekend. Took my business to The Stowe Mountain Lodge. Much better and the staff are truly great! Use Air bnb for that area!
