VERGENNES, VERMONT PROPERTY EST. 1886 Basin Harbor was established in 1886 by Ardelia Beach as a working farm that took in summer boarders seeking respite from the rigors of city life. Adding the Homestead, the oldest operating inn on Lake Champlain and 77 cottages expanded the Lodge to the 700-acre resort it is today. Five generations of Beach family have acted as stewards of the land and continue to welcome families, weddings, and corporate groups seeking “active tranquility”, their own brand of relaxation. The area is steeped in rich history and offers something for all ages from the Lake Champlain Maritime Museum to local brewery and winery trails. Early guests worked for their meals by participating in “gentleman farming.” Today, the tradition of farm-to-table continues to inspire menus.
