Local Weather (Subject to Change!)!
We’re in for some clouds this morning, with the temperatures making the slow climb through the 70s. The day will warm up to a high of 82 degrees and the clouds will hang around, but we don’t expect rain to spoil our fun. Fill your day with a round of golf or hop around the harbor with waterfront activities and robust workouts!
We’d also like to send out some very special birthday wishes today: Happy Birthday to Ed Cranston from Basin Harbor and the Wessell Family!
Kickstart your day at the Treehouse Wellness Center’s Boot Camp! Starting at 7:00 AM, jog or bike to various stations as you make Basin Harbor your gym for the morning. If you’re looking for something with a slower pace but still focusing on wellness, join Chessy for Vinyasa Yoga at 9:45 AM. Here you will take on breath-work and deep stretches to realign your mind and body.
Later in the morning you can also give the Barn Rock Paddle a try at 10:00 AM; Colton will guide you across the lake for a fun workout that fits your experience level.

Over in the Club Room we’ll be creating beautiful jewelry in our 10:30 AM Jewelry Design workshop! Jen will guide you through basic techniques for beading and get you started on your own statement piece!
After lunch has settled get a team together or compete on your own at the Basin Harbor Mini Triathlon!

For an afternoon adrenaline rush, join Colton for a game of Ultimate Frisbee! Sign up with the Concierge for a fun match against your friends and family. The disc starts flying at 4:00 PM at the Red Mill Field!
We also have two opportunities to cruise the lake today: our 2:30 PM Narrated Cruise on the EScape and our complimentary Cocktail Cruise at 5:00 PM. The narrated cruise will take you around our part of the lake and Captain Marty will share tidbits about the natural landscape, the rich historical context of our lovely slice of Vermont, and even bring you across to see the magnificent Palisades. The Cocktail Cruise will kick off your evening with an hour-long trip on the water and drinks to keep you company, returning you to shore just in time for dinner! Sign-ups for both are located by the Concierge Desk.
If you’re ready to hop off property, join Colton on a 6:00 PM self-drive Sunset Hike to Buck Mountain! Follow his lead up to the summit in time to watch the sun set, and capture the Vermont panorama from this new perspective. Sign up with the Concierge and expect to be back at the harbor by 9:00 PM.
Our feature dining option this evening is the Shore Dinner on the North Dock! Enjoy a delicious spread of fresh Vermont fare (and lobster of course), plus live music from the Onion River Jazz Band. Please make your dinner reservations with the Concierge, and note that dock seating is not guaranteed after 6:00 PM.
After you’ve filled up on lobster, head over to Town Hall at 9:00 PM for a Basin Harbor tradition: BINGO night!
