Day Trips

Vermont Day Trips along Lake Champlain

Even though we’ve been here for more than 130 years, Basin Harbor is still a hidden gem for many people around Vermont and northern New York. However you plan to get here – by car, plane, boat, or bike – Basin Harbor offers special experiences that everyone is welcome to discover and enjoy.

So close, yet a world away.

Basin Harbor is an easy drive – just 45 minutes from Burlington and 30 minutes from Middlebury and Rutland. At the end of a winding country road, you’ll emerge to a lakeside oasis where you can relax, play, and eat a great meal in an amazing setting.

Welcome to Our Lakeside Paradise

Here’s a collection of everything available to our day trip visitors at Basin Harbor. Please note that other activities, options, and amenities are available only for our resort guests. We do not offer day passes for resort access.
