The weekend is likely to bring some moisture to our neck of the woods, with potential thunderstorms. We might see a shower mid-week, as well, but plenty of crisp sunny days are also forecasted for the week, with highs in the low to mid 60s.
How wonderful to have some familiar faces with us this week! Basin Harbor welcomes back Jason & Tammy Smith from Rutland, VT for the weekend, as well as Mr. Fred Fleming of Schroon Lake, NY. Also from Schroon Lake are Bill & Barbara Casey, Eugene Coppola, Carmine Decker, Charles Harste, Lorraine Altmann, and Tom Ringrose. Dave Schmidt of Westport, NY joins us for the weekend, while David Valentine arrives from Valatie, NY. From Gansevoort, NY we welcome Marc Porter. It’s good to see our friend Ken Heebner again, here for an Autumn respite from Boston, MA. David & Daria Pannesi are visiting from Arlington, MA, while John & Marney Mesch join us from Albany, NY. Cranston, RI brings Anne Rogers to the Harbor for the weekend into October. Brent & Jaycee Stred, who were married here four years ago, return to the Harbor for a few days of September bliss from North Adams, MA. Our friends Thomas & Barbara O’Brien of North Clarendon, VT are also here this coming weekend, celebrating a very special 75th Birthday! We hope all of you enjoy your Fall experience at Basin Harbor Club!
Wedding bells are ringing at Basin Harbor! We are delighted to take part in the happy union of Andrea Doenges and Kyle Martin on Saturday, as they tie the knot amongst family and friends. Congratulations, and we wish you many happy years to come! Congrats are also in order for the lovely new couple Jonathan & Kristen Warner from New Hampshire, who were married at Basin Harbor on Friday.
BHC proudly welcomes a delightful group of ladies this week as they gather for the Girl Scouts Roundup Reunion of 2012 in celebration of 100 years of Girl Scouts of the USA. We look forward to hosting them as they enjoy activities and fellowship around Basin Harbor grounds. How wonderful to have you gals!
Whether you’ve never been out on Lake Champlain before or have stepped aboard our Narrated Cruise on the EScape many times in past years, it’s always a fine time for an EScape! Join Captain Brian for a fun and fascinating lake tour to the Palisades, past shipwrecks, and up Otter Creek every weekday at 2:30pm. For something different, hop on board the ROV Cruise on Saturday for an in-depth shipwreck viewing with special technological equipment and Maritime Museum experts on hand! Sign up with the concierge in advance.
While you’re out gallivanting around property, see if you can find our brand-new hidden Checkerboard Stump in the woods! Grab a friend and play a game or two amidst the maples. Hint: the stump is located on the Button Bay Trail, with a view of the 4th Green!
If you are admiring our handsome new fleet of bicycles, why not rent one? Stop by the Waterfront to pick up a cycling map of the area and head out for a crisp Autumn ride! Bikes are available by the hour, day, or for the entire week!
Apples are in full swing! Our favorite seasonal Vermont fruits are popping off the trees this time of year, so don’t forget to enjoy one a day (or more!) from our well-stocked supply in the lobby. Sip on a cup of complimentary hot or cold Vermont apple cider in the Champlain Lounge from 3pm-5pm each day, accompanied by an array of delicious cookies! For a more hands-on approach, visit the Shelburne or Champlain Orchards to pick your own peck.
