I booked this through booking.com. I forgot to cancel the first night but, cancelled the second night. They still charged me the total $818. I am sure they rebooked to room because it was a busy weekend. Took my business to The Stowe Mountain Lodge. Much better and the staff are truly great! Use Air bnb for that area!

Busy weekends do not always equal a full house. It's always a good idea to let hotels and Air BNB properties know in advance when your plans change. We're glad to know that this guest enjoyed her/his time in Stowe. Sincerely, Pennie Beach Fourth Generation Host

Basin Harbor is indeed a wonderful place for a wedding or a family vacation. Cell service is vexing in much of Vermont outside of urban areas (yes, we have those!), but Verizon is the carrier with the most coverage here.

We enjoyed our stay in a cottage at the Basin Harbor Club. The cottage was well appointed with two bedrooms and two full baths. It worked perfectly for two couples.
