Beat the Heat!

Skip the Heat and Crowds with a Lake Champlain, VT

Some destinations are just designed for fun – a trip to Lake Champlain includes something for the whole family. From your lakeside adventurers to the family foodie, a week at the lake gives your family a chance to unwind, beat the summer heat and actually spend real, quality time together. We love seeing families return to Basin Harbor Club year after year and love sharing our favorite things to do here on the lake.

Avoid the Crowds and Noise

Choosing a family friendly, laid back lakeside vacation allows you to avoid the crowds, and hassles that accompany the long drive to an overbooked and often overpriced beach destination. Your vacation starts the moment you arrive, whether you grab your fishing gear and head out to try your luck or simply relax and enjoy the view.

Pet Friendly Options

We consider our pets to be part of the family — and your dog is always welcome at Basin Harbor Club! We know how important your dog is to your family and have made some special accommodations just for him. From a dog-friendly swimming area to our pet friendly cottages, we make it easy to enjoy a day on the water with your pooch. Even older dogs recapture some of their puppyhood sparkle when they spot the lake and swimming spot for the first time!

Beat the Heat

It’s easy to stay cool and comfortable when you visit the nation’s 6th largest lake! Whether you take out one of our personal watercraft for a cruise or simply splash your way out to the in-lake trampoline, you’ll have no trouble staying cool. We offer a wide range of boating options for kids and adults so you can choose the craft that suits you best. Choose a slow paced paddleboat one day and then go extreme and waterski your way across the lake the next.

Kids and Teens

The lake is always a big draw for our youngest guests and teens, from boating and playing with mom and dad to exploring our kid’s activities and teen camp. Kids boats, fishing gear and even beach toys are available for your young ones to play while you enjoy the amazing scenery and lakeside breezes. From scheduled games of Capture the Flag to boating, swimming and nature expeditions, the kids in your group can experience life at a different pace and get reacquainted with the concept of playtime.

Cottage Comfort

Our guests love to retire each night away from the traffic and noise of a crowded tourist spot and wake up refreshed and ready for fun the next morning. There’s nothing like comfort and convenience of your own private cottage at the lake; the 70+ cottages on site are full of personality and each one is unique. Coming back to your own cottage after a day of lakeside fun gives you a restorative place to relax, unwind and reflect away from the crowds of a typical tourist spot.
