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...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 29 June 2016

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...

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. When we took the shuttle to our little cabin, we had no idea where we were in the woods. The next morning we learned we were lake side...

What a gorgeous place, way cuter than 'Dirty Dancin' club but that cute friendly feel. Super caring staff and the fall views are phenomenal, just lovely!

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...

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. I was too exhausted to complain and ask to be moved but based on other experiences here I don't think I would have been accommodated. We were informed that we would need 'collared' shirts to...

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

Spent 3 nights here (Number 5 Summit) during an excellent fall VBT tour. The room and bath were enormous by hotel/inn standards and was located in a building surrounded in a wooded area.

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!
