There are also wonderful parks available for boating and hiking. The first is Settlers Park you can park and load a boat into the water. From this point, you can paddle your way along the Otter Creek for beautiful views and foliage along the banks. The other park is Falls Park, which is located on Six and one half acres of land and has system of walking paths, picnic areas as well as great spots for fishing from the banks and a boat launch for Otter Creek.
Sniqueaway has a great deal on stays at The Basin Harbor Club and Resort Vermont with rooms starting at $105 per night and large studio cottages starting at $165 per night. The hotel is on of the Historic Hotels of America and part of the National Trust for Historic Preservation, so what does that mean? Historic Hotels of America is a program of the National Trust for Historic Preservation and has identified more than 234 hotels that have faithfully maintained their historic architecture and ambiance, so you get more of a feel for the history of an area. Personally I really enjoy staying in hotels that are part of this program, it gives you a real sense of times gone by, but the properties are all well kept. The Basin Harbor Club and Resort is also pet friendly! Pet amenities include Vermont made biscuits, pick up mitts and a welcome letter from the BHC Mascots, Piccolo, Ava and Fannie. Piccollo and Ava host a dog walk weekly with their owner, Pennie Beach and dog walking/dog sitting services are available. Other amenities include:
