What is the dress code?

Resort casual is the dress for the resort with the exception of Ardelia’s in the evening. Our main dining room offers an elevated dining experience for dinner. Collared shirts are suggested. Seasonal sport coat or blazer has been a long standing tradition at BH but not required. (Doesn’t mean the seersucker and bowtie is out of place!) Please no athletic wear, sport wear, pool attire or gentleman’s hats. We like to refer to the style as “dressy casual”. Appropriate dress for women is also requested.


What do I need to Bring?

-We provide towels in your accommodation for bathing. Beach and pool towels are also provided at each respective location. So leave room for something else in your suitcase!

-Pack a sweatshirt or a light sweater. Evenings in the Champlain Valley can be chilly.

-Your favorite sunscreen and mosquito repellent. We sell these in our gift shop in case you forget!

-Snazzy attire for dinner in the Main Dining Room!

-Swim Suit! The closest retailer (in case you forget) is 30 min away.

-A good book. We embrace our tradition of no TV’s in the rooms. So catch up on the latest thriller, the best tearjerker or that autobiography you have been meaning to get to.
