Pet Friendly Resorts in Vermont

If you’ve got a dog (or three) in your life, you know how challenging it can be to travel sometimes, given how many destinations don’t allow pets. Naturally you sometimes want to share a vacation with your four-legged friend: mostly out of love and companionship, but sometimes for practical reasons—a dearth of dog-sitters, the expense of boarding kennels, a pup with some hardcore separation anxiety—as well.

Well, we’ve got good news for you: Here at Basin Harbor, we’ve always been a dog-friendly resort, which means you and Fido can both enjoy the scenic beauty, luxurious pampering, and endless fun on tap at our Vermont resort on the lapping shores of Lake Champlain.

Now’s the time to start planning your pooch-powered getaway to the Green Mountain State this summer or fall with the finest accommodations at historic Basin Harbor! Reserve your stay today and start getting exciting: We expect some tail-wagging will be in order.

Pups Welcome at Basin Harbor

You and your furry buddy (or buddies) can have an absolute blast here at our Lake Champlain spread. Accommodations-wise, our 74 gorgeous Basin Harbor summer cottages—every one its own unique private paradise—welcome pets for a daily fee of $20 per critter. (Our guestrooms are all pet-free.)

While we ask for the safety and comfort of both our guests and our dogs that you walk Fido on a leash throughout our expansive grounds, we do maintain an off-leash play area and a dedicated dog-friendly swimming beach on the south side of the resort: Fanny’s Beach, which needless to say hosts a bunch of happy pups (and happy owners) on a typical summer’s day.

Dogs aren’t allowed at the pool or the guest waterfront—but there’s plenty of other acreage for them to enjoy! Throughout the resort you’ll find Mutt Mitts readily available for responsibly cleaning up after your pet. We also supply Vermont-made dog biscuits for special treats.

Besides wandering our beautiful lakeside property itself, you and your dog have also got world-class hiking in the Vermont mountains (and the New York Adirondacks across the lake) at your mutual disposal with a Basin Harbor perch.

Join Us This Summer With Your Pooch at Basin Harbor on Lake Champlain

We hope to see you and your sloppy-tongued sidekick when our 2019 season here at Basin Harbor kicks off. To whet your appetite for a pet-friendly escape to our blissful Vermont shores, we suggest browsing through the pooch gallery we’ve posted to the site—all that, including the Lake Champlain cannonballing, can be yours to enjoy this year!
