Autumn Hotel and Resort Events in Basin Harbor
For better than 130 years, we’ve welcomed families to Basin Harbor here at the doorstep of Lake Champlain for memory-minting get-togethers and all-around special occasions. More than a few families have returned to our historic lakeside resort for decades, and we invite you to strike up such a tradition with us!
Family Reunions at Basin Harbor: The Magic of Our Lake Champlain Resort
Given the perfection of our rooms and cottages, the array of on-site activities, and the sheer loveliness of our location, we don’t think it’s at all surprising so many families from near and far make reunions and other gatherings at Basin Harbor a regular, even yearly, tradition.
We’re incredibly, genuinely honored to be a part of such traditions: providing the superlative setting, hospitality, and entertainment for celebrations of family relationships and togetherness. Basin Harbor is something of a dream-scape, what with the soothing presence of the great lake, the mountain backdrop, the lawns and woods. Combine that beautiful mosaic with luxurious and character-filled accommodations, exceptional resort dining, and a smorgasbord of activities at hand, and you’ve got just the place to provide a truly unforgettable family reunion—and hopefully many of them!
Something for Everybody at Basin Harbor
When you’re talking large groups of people, and especially multigenerational groups of people, coming together for a weekend or a week, it’s commonplace to fret a little about how to keep everybody happy, entertained, and occupied. That’s not a problem at Basin Harbor: We’ve truly got something for everybody, and more than enough variety for family reunions of both the jampacked, heavily scheduled and the laidback, spontaneous varieties.
The defining attraction of our resort, of course, is Lake Champlain itself. You and the gang can go swimming or fishing right along our waterfront, or head offshore in a paddleboat, a rowboat, a canoe, a kayak, a powerboat, a sailboat—perhaps atop a stand-up paddleboard, or racing along on a pair of water skis. Take a scenic and narrated cruise of this magnificent body of water; learn about the historic shipwrecks its depths have claimed.
You’ve also got world-class New England hiking at your beck and call, whether in the sylvan heights of the Green Mountains or across the water in the grand Adirondacks. Cycling routes abound as well.
From badminton, croquet, and volleyball to basketball, tennis, and golf on one of the finest courses in the Green Mountain State, you’ve also got lots of opportunities for fun and games—we won’t tell you how competitive to make them. And don’t forget giant chess or our low-elements rope course!
Here at Basin Harbor, we also maintain a series of outstanding restaurants ideal for celebratory feasts.
