Dining

Dining at Basin Harbor is all about choices. Our lakefront dining room serves breakfast and dinner and during the summer season, we keep the tradition of jacket and tie for gentlemen over the age of 12 at the dinner hour. The Ranger Room serves a sumptious luncheon buffet daily with cold salads, hot entrees, childrens items, soup and sandwiches and a dessert/sundae bar where adults and children alike jockey for a place in line! The Red Mill Restaurant is a renovated sawmill with hand hewn rafters and ephemera decorating the walls providing a rich visual history of Basin Harbor and Lake Champlain. The menu is casual and features local and fresh ingredients. 

Our North Dock presents the most spectacular lake dining experience. Any closer and you would be treading water. Three nights a week, you can enjoy fresh lobster, barbeque or vermont farm to table dinners with live music and the summer breezes.
 
Our committment to the Vermont Fresh Network and all our wonderful local producers is important to our historic Vermont heritage. Dining is an important aspect to any enjoyable getaway and we fully appreciate that.
