Pet-Friendly Lake Champlain Resort

We’re Proud to be a Pet-Friendly Lake Champlain Resort

What fun would a Lake Champlain vacation be without your best friend? At Basin Harbor Club, we welcome all the members of your family to our resort, including those four-legged friends that you usually have to leave behind when you travel.

Why BHC is the Best Choice for Pet Lovers

We look forward to actively welcoming you and your pet with upscale amenities, special doggy packages, and a range of activities designed to engage and relax your furry friend. We even keep a stock of locally made dog biscuits on hand for dispensing to guest pups upon check-in.

You and your pet can explore our waterfront acreage, or have an off-leash run at our “just for dogs and their people” beach. We offer complimentary pet pick-up mitts to make cleaning up after your pet easy.

Every year, we throw a Festival of Fidos to celebrate dogs and their people. This year’s celebration is May 16. Join us for family-friendly activities, pet product vendors, demonstrations of pet training and agility, and more! We are partnering with a wonderful organization called Lacey’s Fund. Lacey’s Fund was established to benefit retired police dogs of the Vermont Police Canine Association. These dogs give their very best to us each day and ask for nothing in return. Upon retirement, these dogs can suffer from ailments resulting in medical expenses that their handlers simply cannot afford. The goal of Lacey’s Fund is to assist handlers with the resources needed to enable these retired police dogs to live out the remainder of their days in good health, which is the very least we can do in recognition of their contribution to our communities.

Our Pet-Friendly Lake Champlain Resort

We welcome pets in our cottage accommodations for a daily fee of $15. We have 73 cottages, which include studios, one-bedroom cottages, two-bedroom cottages, and three-bedroom cottages. Each cottage is well appointed with tasteful furniture and “summer home” decor. You and your dog can enjoy the summer’s eve on the cottage deck or screened-in porch.

Pets are welcome to join their owners throughout the resort, but must be kept on leash and cannot be near the pool or the guest waterfront areas. We can arrange for dog walking or dog sitting services if you want your pet to be fully entertained while you are exploring the Lake Champlain area.

Our friendly reservationists can help you finalize your summer cottage arrangements and give you helpful tips on touring the region with your pet. In the meantime, you are welcome to contact us here if you have any questions about bringing your dog to our pet-friendly Vermont resort.
