New Boat Club Opens on Lake Champlain

New boat club will be opening in Vergennes, VT, on Lake Champlain, starting in spring of 2017. Called Basin Harbor, the club promises to offer “a resort boating experience” by offering mariners access to 400 acres of resort amenities, including golf, paddle sports, swimming, dining and more.

“Boaters from all over Vermont, Montreal and beyond can drop anchor here and enjoy our unique offerings,” said Jen Wyman, Director of Resort Marketing for the family-owned and -operated resort. “Our boat club is the only destination of its kind on Lake Champlain that allows guests to dock and experience all of the resort amenities while staying overnight on their boat.”

When construction is completed, the club’s docking system will accommodate boats up to 70 feet. There will also be shower facilities and a swim dock to provide a defined area for all resort guests who want to swim in the lake and enjoy the beach.

Guests can stay overnight on their boat for $100 per night, per boat, plus per-foot charges in July and August. During May, June, September and October, the overnight fee is $50 per night, per boat, plus per-foot charges. The fee allows full access to the property, welcoming boaters to the full array of recreation and other amenities. Seasonal memberships for Basin Harbor’s Boat Club will be available, too.

Directly by the dock at Basin Harbor, guests can enjoy paddleboating and paddleboarding, as well as kayaking and canoeing. On land, they can play croquet and badminton on a grassy lawn or hike and bike through the countryside and town. Golf and massage treatments are available, too.

Basin Harbor Resort & Boat Club offers 45 comfortable accommodations in 4 distinctive guesthouses, as well as 74 private cottages.
