Enjoy a bright and sunny morning here at Basin Harbor! Wake up to temperatures on the cooler side, but as the day goes on it will warm up into a high of 78 degrees. We’ll have clear skies right through dinner, and this evening the temperatures will dip back into the high 60s, perfect for a round of Night Golf!
Alan and Martha Fleischer are celebrating their 62nd anniversary today! They have been coming to Basin Harbor since 1965! Congratulations to the happy couple, and here’s to many more years!

Looking to tighten up your golf game? Join Dave, our Director of Instruction, for his Short Game Golf Clinic every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday morning at 8:00 AM for tips and practice for your putting, chipping, and pitching. You can also sign up the kiddos for his 2:30 PM Junior Clinic and introduce them to the joys of golf!
For a new twist to your workout, try Jamie’s Pi-Yo class at the Treehouse Wellness Center at 9:45 AM! This mix of Pilates- and yoga-inspired moves creates a thorough cardio, strength, and flexibility workout—all at once.
Here’s something for you history buffs: this morning at 10:00 AM, join Bob Beach, Jr. on the Lodge Deck for his History Talk. Listen in and learn, from our fourth generation host, the rich history of Basin Harbor and our slice of the Champlain Valley.

At 2:00 PM, we’ll have a game of Knockerball over at the Red Mill Field! Challenge your friends and family to see who will be the last man standing in a giant bubble, and sign up a team with the Concierge. Even if you don’t get a chance inside a bubble, it’s a hoot watching everyone else knock around too!
For something a little smoother, join the Narrated Cruise on the EScape at 2:30 PM! The trip 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!
Local artist Bethany Farrell will be on property today to guide you through a Paint ‘n’ Sip! For an excellent lesson in acrylic painting with a little fun on the side, sign up for her 3:00 PM and/or 6:30 PM session, and get ready to ramp up the creativity and cocktails!
