Vermont style and hospitality combine with stunning lake views to make this resort a must for visitors

The combination of classic Vermont style, modern amenities and fun activities has proven irresistible for Lake Morey Resort guests, who return year after year to relax and enjoy time together. Many of the 130 guests rooms and suites have stunning lake views, as do all four of the private cottages. Lake views are also on the menu at the resort’s restaurant and part of the charm of the heated pool and hot tub. In the winter, the 600-acre lake means pond hockey and a skating trail that skirts its shoreline; in the summer, it means kayaking, canoeing, paddleboarding and pontoon boat tours. Other resort amenities include high-speed wifi, an 18-hole championship golf course, a movie theater, workout facilities and a lounge with live entertainment.

Lake views, activities make this inn ideal for having fun or just sitting back and relaxing

On the shores of magnificent Lake Champlain, Basin Harbor has extended a warm Vermont welcome to guests for more than a century. Guestroom and private cottage accommodations, some with water views, all spacious and each unique, will serve as your headquarters for a true lakeside vacation. Go paddleboarding, kayaking, sailing on a resort Sunfish or Cape Cory Day Sailer, canoeing – or fishing off a floating dock. (Or use your own boat: The inn’s private harbor has 66 slips for boats up to 70 feet.) Dine on fresh food from local farmers and purveyors in a casual atmosphere; get a massage; play golf or tennis; or just sit in an Adirondack chair and breathe in that Vermont air.
