Basin Harbor Resort offering rooms to guests booked at closed properties throughout the state

first_imgBasin Harbor,As many resorts, inns and hotels throughout Vermont have either closed or become inaccessible in the aftermath of Hurricane Irene, Basin Harbor Club in Vergennes, Vermont is offering guests of those properties complimentary stays at their resort. ‘We were very fortunate at Basin Harbor and are fully up and running, but we recognize that many in our industry are not so lucky.  This is Vermont, we all join together in times like this,’ said Pennie Beach, co-owner of Basin Harbor Club.  ‘For visitors who had a reservation at a property that is confirmed as closed or physically inaccessible due to roads, power, water etc. we’re offering complimentary accommodations on our property, with just a requested $10/night service fee to cover the cost of making up the room.’ To take advantage of this offer, guests will need to provide confirmation of reservation, rate and deposit paid at the original property.  Should guests choose to stay longer than their reservation at the original property, they will be charged at the going rate with applicable charges.Basin Harbor Club was established in 1886 by Ardelia Beach and has remained family owned for 125 years.  Today, guests are greeted by fourth generation hosts, Pennie Beach and Robert H. Beach, Jr.  Originally a 225-acre working farm catering to summer boarders, the resort has expanded to cover 700 acres of Vermont’s most pristine land along the shores of Lake Champlain, encompassing the main lodge, cottages, a private golf course, spectacular gardens, a 3,200 foot grass airstrip, and the Lake Champlain Maritime Museum’an organization dedicated to preserving and sharing the history of Lake Champlain.
