Why We Love It

  • The resort has been in the current owners' family for five generations
  • Fill the days with sailing, kayaking, fishing, golfing and wine tasting amid Vermont's verdant terrain
  • More than 200 farms operate in this county, and many contribute their vegetables and cheeses to the resort's restaurants

The lakeside Basin Harbor Club has been touted by Frommer's as "one of Vermont's most peaceful resorts if your goal is to kick back and enjoy lake breezes and lovely scenery." This 700-acre resort on the shores of Lake Champlain features an 18-hole lakeside championship golf course, a spa, an Olympic-size heated pool, tennis and more.

This Historic Hotel of America opened more than 130 years ago, and the same family has been running it for five generations. Rooms in the main lodge are done up in classic New England style with country furnishings. Cottages are tucked into the woods throughout the property, with fireplaces and private patios with lake views.

The resort has several vessels for skimming through the waters of Lake Champlain. Guests can also explore on kayak and speedboat, or bike and hike through the terrain, or hop on a hayride. There's jewelry-making workshops, painting classes, and a robust schedule at the kids club. Two restaurants source the freshest food from Vermont's bountiful farms -- more than 200 purveyors are in this county alone.

From the press:
  • "On-site golf courses and pristine gardens echo the natural splendor with landscaped perfection" -- Historic Hotels of America
