It was fine for a night. Lack of bathrooms 24/7 was a little annoying but we managed. It's a beautiful location though and nice and calm.

Best steamed crabs I've found on the Chesapeake. Marina was an easy in & out and well protected.

Very good (but pricey) restaurant but limited services for transients. Premium lump crab cakes were excellent. Limited Verizon cell service, no showers, bathrooms open only during restaurant hours (11:00 am to 9:30 pm), and restaurant guest WiFi was fairly unusable on outside slips. OK for an overnight stay with dinner, but for longer stay 1/2 way up/down the Potomac go to Colonial Beach across the river.

The marina was easy to access and very quiet on this day. We were the only overnight boat. The crabs were great! Bathroom access is only in the restaurant when open.
