Basin Harbor is a bit like stepping back in time. It is a charming resort full of old fashion touches. The location and grounds are beautiful and there are tons of activities for kids and grown ups. Many people seem to be regulars. The staff is super friendly and accommodating. The rooms and the lodge, however, could definitely use some renovations and upgrades. Everything feels dated and could use some sprucing up. The room was tiny and darkish. There was no TV. Shower barely gave a couple of minutes of hot water.

Fair, room had a broken lock so door didn’t close properly. Person was sent to fix it shortly before I checked out also bathroom window had very large cracks. Staff was very laid back about fixing broken lock, didn’t seem to care.

Complete resort, centered around an excellent golf course typical of Ireland/Scotland. Despite being huge, everthing seemed close to where we stayed.

First room (Champlain house) was very old. Luckily was able to move, new house was more up to date, shower temp was terrible, changed from hot to cold, back and forth for no reason. Deck was nice but not clean. Green algae was on the newer white trim boards. Power washing is easy and would do wonders. Definitely wouldn’t spend the money to stay there again, Amenties looked good although didn’t partake. Food at the Redmill was good.
