Basin Harbor: Gorgeous Venue with Genuine Staff

10/10 Anne, Will, Lauren, Brian and the entire BHC team are true professionals. Their enthusiasm, support, guidance and follow through made our wedding a success. We are VERY particular and detail oriented, however Anne and her team definitely take the cake. From cleanliness of rooms to ensuring guests got places on time to the amount of sauce on a dish, BHC handled EVERYTHING. Anne鈥檚 experience and team management took all of the weight off and allowed our focus to be on our selves and our guests! Brian and his team made sure the venue was in tip top shape and continue to make improvements every day. Huge shoutout to Chef Chris and the pastry chef. BHC is a hidden gem and we feel beyond lucky to have been able to have our wedding there.

Incredible!

Lauren & Anne did a magnificent job from start to finish, helping us plan our wedding. The weekend could not have gone smoother. The golf carts, efficient service, and picturesque location made for a perfect wedding. The customer service at Basin Harbor is simply unmatched. We definitely would recommend this spot to anyone looking to get married on Lake Champlain.

Dream Lake Wedding!

We knew Basin Harbor was a special place, but after hosting our wedding overlooking Lake Champlain, it is safe to say the resort will continue to be a special place for our family for generations to come! The wedding coordinators (Anne & Lauren) were amazing, organized, responsive and personable throughout the planning process. The wedding planning team provided detailed google docs for every event, which was extremely helpful for us and touched on every thing and more we could have thought of ourselves. From simple decor, set up, tending to guests, ceremony line ups, noting our favorite drinks and more, they handled everything! The day of was a breeze thanks to them and the BHC team! The resort itself is such a unique experience for guests, a true adult summer camp. The best part was being able to walk/golf cart everywhere. The resort did an amazing job of accommodating our various events throughout the wedding weekend and allowed us flexibility with weather and personal touches. We held an outdoor ceremony at the Lodge Lawn, cocktail hour on the North Dock and tented reception on the Homestead Lawn. As the bride and groom we did not have to worry about a single detail on our special day, everything was planned out and handled by the BHC team. We can not say enough great things about BHC and how special this family run resort is to everyone that has the pleasure to visit. We look forward to spending many anniversaries at BHC!

We love Basin Harbor! Their expansive property has so many varied settings that no two weddings are alike; you could have an elegant tented affair or a casual lakeside party, or anything in between. The cabins set along the lake look rustic, but are delightfully modernized and comfortable; perfect for guests and prep spaces. We especially love the front lawn by the dining room that overlooks the harbor! Soaring trees and lovely evening light makes it the perfect spot for a cocktail hour.

The Basin Harbor Club is one of the few gems in Vermont. It's truly unique. The staff is very professional, accommodating, and personable. The BHC provides a beautiful venue that has breathtaking views, numerous activities and great amenities for guests. I have enjoyed every minute at BHC and consider it one of the premier New England wedding venues.

Natural beauty, comfortable elegance, and an absolute TOP NOTCH staff make this one of my favorite wedding venues in the whole state. Its location makes it a wonderful place to shoot, with golden light streaming through the trees, and reflecting off the shimmering harbor. I love BHC, and so will you!
