Gorgeous View, Exceptionally Clean, Extremely Accomodating

What a treat! My family traveled from Iowa and Kentucky to attend a wedding at Basin Harbor Resort, and we had the opportunity to spend several days at this lakefront property together. The property is nestled in a wooded area - close enough to see the neighbors, but private enough to have some breathing room and enjoy the space. There are three bedrooms upstairs - one master, one with a queen bed, and one with two twin beds. There is one full bath that opens to both the hallway and the master bedroom. The view of Lake Champlain and the cliff on the opposite side of the lake were breathtaking from up there (but equally beautiful from the main level as well). There's a fourth bedroom on the main level adjacent to a 3/4 bath, a lovely sitting area, eat-in kitchen and huge living room that opens to the wrap around porch. The home itself was beautifully constructed, simple and neutral decorating, very clean and had more than ample space for the five of us. We could have easily accommodated three more adults if necessary. There were plenty of towels for us, and the kitchen was well-equipped. We even used the propane grill on the porch - plenty of gas was provided.
The owners of this home were extremely easy to work with, friendly, and accommodating which certainly enhanced our stay and made the whole trip much easier.
If you're traveling to Basin Harbor, you'll be pleased to know it's almost next door, which is also to say that you're about a 10 minute drive from Vergennes. We traveled to Burlington several times during our stay, and learned from experience that you need to budget an hour for that trip one-way. It's close when you consider the mileage, but a two-lane highway and 50mph speed limit will slow you down if you happen to, for example, get caught behind a bike race or school bus that stops every few miles.
My family very much enjoyed the trip and wholeheartedly recommend this lake front property! We wouldn't have had the same experience staying in a hotel or resort. This was a perfect, quiet, enjoyable getaway.
