We have a fun “Beyond the Basin” excursion this morning: a 10:00 AM hike up Camel’s Hump! Sign up with the Concierge and meet Matt in the Lodge Lobby.

With a 50-minute drive added there and back, be prepared to be off property for most of the day, so make sure you bring water and snacks!
If you’re looking to explore a little closer to home, venture out on the lake this morning for a Kayak Trek! April will guide you on a paddle across the lake or down the Vermont shore, depending on the weather. Sign up with the Concierge and meet at the Waterfront at 10:30 AM.
