We did not get any information needed before the trip. It said we should call ahead but when we did they were already gone. I would think they should send an email. Also the slip was not prepared to tie off making it very difficult to set up our lines for an overnight stay.

Would stay again. Getting into slips is tight but doable. Good cell coverage and wifi. Great town to visit. Can easily walk it but bikes make it much easier to see more (of course). If nothing else, walk the main streets. Music is playing from speakers mounted in poles throughout downtown. Find your way to the waterfront walkway on the south side of town. No laundry or clubhouse but busy marina with all you need. Nice individual head/showers. Grocery is about 3 miles (According to a local). In order to take a pic, my wife was standing in one of those slanted parking spaces you find in many small town main streets. A young person subtly "urged" my wife to move so she could park her car. We walked down the street a short distance and somebody came up and apologized saying that the driver should have waited to let you finish because: "That is just not how we roll in this town."

Well worth the trip up here. You have to want to get here. Very nice town to spend a couple of days. Lots of antique stores.

Marina staff were great, good location to town, marina seemed well maintained. Seawall provides good protection from the boaters not considering the no wake restriction. I question the seamanship of the permanent slip holders there. We were fortunate to be on our boat on 3 separate occasions we has to push off power boaters that were tying to get into their seasonal slip.If we had not been there and alert, we would have had fiberglass repairs. Evenings were pretty buggy. We were careful to not open the doors for long and still got tons of little fleas inside our boat and spent 1/2 hour vacuuming them up. Lots of seaweed and pretty significant tide change for Ches Bay.

Great location close to town. Very helpful staff. Nice boat hardware store onsite. Get ice before they close at 5 tho, and be prepared for town to be mostly shut Sun. Basic But adequate toilet/shower facilities. VERY narrow entrance to marina.

Very quiet and comfortable marina. Docks were in great shape. Basins are tight to maneuver around in (for a 50' boat), but it's doable. WiFi was fast, water pressure was great. Relaxing modest rocking from passing boats. Considered one of the mooring balls, and glad we settled on a slip - as we would have been rocked apart from all the boats in the river. Marine store is well stocked. On-site services available. Great location to walk around town. Bath houses are adequate. If we come back to the north end of the bay, we'll definitely stay here again.
