Docking was a little challenging due to no radio communications and changing slip assignment. No indication where the showers are located unless you ask. Weak services for the rates they charge!
What a great place. There are activities galore and many places to eat at on property. Beautifully manicured grounds and helpful staff. WiFi was better than most marinas. The harbor area was a bit weedy but no problem with fouling the prop. Air conditioning strainer picked up a few weeds after 2 days. A must stop place.
Definitely not my kind of place! Very expensive for a slip, $111+ per night for a 28 ft boat. When I went to check-in, the dockmaster had left early and the boy in the office didn't seem to know what he was talking about! I was asked if I were a member of the resort. I said no, so he said okay you're all set. No map, no expanation nothing. Then I went back to ask where the showers were and was told boaters were NOT allow to use the showers, they were not for public use, only for resort members, so it would cost an extra $20, $40 for my wife and me! $40 bucks for a shower on an overnight stay! No where on Dockwa did I see any mention of these extra charges! I refused to pay that much, so we did without. The right hand does not know what the left is doing! The next morning when I checked out the Dockmaster appologized saying he was very sorry and that what I had been told was incorrect. We could use the showers and could do so now if we wanted to, a bit after the fact! Maybe a family who is coming for a week would be willing to pay $20 a person per day for use of all the resort facilities, but I could have anchored out for what I got and saved myself $111 dollars! The other members of my cruising group were unaware until checkout, that they were being charged $40 per night, per couple, to use the facilities and resort amenities! To end, it's so swallow and weedy, that I picked up weeds on my rudder leaving my slip, which affected my steering and autohelm all day long for our trip to Burlington! They did however, have a very friendly staff!
Need to upgrade the Wi-Fi, paying a premium price to stay and was very disappointed not to have internet connection for work and play
1. They Overcharge us every year. This year they charged us an extra $750. 2. Arriving at the marina is a shit show. They can never tell us which slip we have or give us a decent description for dock location. Put a dock map on your site and know the depth of channel and slip. 3. No WiFi. 4. Bring back the frozen pina coladas and margaritas. WTF frozen rosé. Worst margarita ever.
Our favorite spot on Lake Champlain.
Nice well protected marina. Modern docks. Very nice food in the sawmill restaurant. No gas , diesel or pump-out so plan accordingly but its a great stop going up or down lake champlain or as an end destination on a trip up Lake Champlain canal.
Great service from the dock staff. Lots of options at the facility! One of the best destinations on the lake.
The southern end of Lake Champlain is a Well Kept Secret! It is intimate, has beautiful views, and tends to have calmer waters. On top of that Basin Harbor is one of, if not the most protected marinas on Lake Champlain and it is RIGHT on the lake (docks are less than 100 yards from open water), so extremely convenient. The docks are brand new and the resort is beautiful. There is a friendly and professional staff in the marina, if you need assistance docking. I have kept my boat at three other marinas over the past ten years and by FAR the Basin Harbor Club is the nicest, calmest, newest, and most convenient harbor that I have been at. Thanks to the Beach family and their delightful staff.
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!
