Very disappointed. Upon check in, the front desk personnel assured us that breakfast was included in the main dining room. After breakfast the next morning, we were presented a $50 breakfast check for two people at the Buffett. The server then informed us that breakfast was only included for room service. When I addressed this with the front desk, they replied "there is no room service." After I told the front desk I was unhappy with my stay given the surprise $50 breakfast bill (and the fact that a fire alarm went off at 2 AM the previous evening) the staff made no effort to appease my experience. They simply said, "we're sorry." Not good customer service. This hotel is great for families but is grossly overpriced and laden with rude staff members.

Can't wait to come back!
This resort is nothing short of phenomenal! We've written as many good reviews as possible. Five generations of inn keepers have mastered the elegant but layed back lake resort. The staff go above and beyond every step of the way. We had a flat tire... They took care of the arrangements, printed out the directions brought them to our room and checked in on us later...Seriously who does that anymore?! If you re trying to decide where to go...This is it. Just one visit and we're fans! We can't wait to return

Relaxation & Fun at Lakeside Resort
This is a great resort to stay at when exploring Vermont. It is fairly close enough to a wonderful bike trail, some hiking trails and wineries. It sits right on Lake Champlain and they offer plenty of activities right there at the resort. You can rent kayaks and canoes or take a boating excursion. You can rent bikes. You can also use paddle boats, paddle boards and they have a swimming area and large trampoline rafts for some added water fun. They have a wonderful golf course and you can play multiple lawn games or tennis. You should never be bored here.

Positives Don't Outweigh the Negatives :(
Spent 2 nights at the end of a family trip. Was pleasantly surprised by the spacious cottage though dismayed that the rear cottage door was unlocked/broken upon arrival to the poorly lit cabin. BHC is rustic and historic and I like that (hence the 4 stars on neighborhood). HOWEVER, given the cost and location (Vermont), I expected the food and service to be EXCELLENT. It was not. Breakfast in The Main Dining Room was over $100 for 2 adults, 1 teen, 1 preschooler compared to dinner at The Red Mill for same # people at under $100. The breakfast buffet was mediocre with frozen potatoes, runny eggs while the other offerings weren't memorable. The Red Mill meals were all drenched in creamy sauce. The staff were generally friendly and interesting, good at small talk with seemingly appropriate boundaries. At least that's what I thought...until I received a random Facebook friend request from an employee of BHC after we checked out. I REALLY wanted to like BHC as it was recommended by my parents who honeymooned there. The golf lesson/pro were great, the location/surroundings are gorgeous and the housekeeping staff mailed us a forgotten item. Unfortunately, these positives don't outweigh the negatives of this particular trip and accordingly BHC won't make our list of must-return destinations. :(
