The Homestead & Penfield Place

The Homestead

Built in 1792, The Homestead is the oldest operating inn on Lake Champlain. The Homestead building includes 16 guestrooms with private baths and a common living room that opens onto the porch with card tables and comfortable chairs. 

Located just a few steps from the waterfront and nearby to the Harbor Store, the Burgee Bar, and the Noth Dock, The Homestead provides guests easy access to everything Basin Harbor has to offer. 

The Homestead is an ideal spot for large families and reunions.

Penfield Place

Penfield Place is the original home of Basin Harbor’s second-generation host, Allen Penfield Beach. It was built in 1949, and was the summer home of AP and Harriet Beach until 1964. Penfield Place has the look and feel of a quaint English cottage, with stone hearths and custom woodworking throughout the three-bedroom house. 

Families and groups can enjoy the large living room, first-floor suite, and two upstairs bedrooms with private baths. Penfield Place is directly adjacent to The Homestead, with easy access to the waterfront, the Harbor Store, the Burgee Bar, and the North Dock.
