They had us tie up along side the Cass Cay restaraunt. We were steps away from the laundry, showers and cafe. Not much in the way of privacy but very convenient and lots of activity to watch. They have live music several nights per week, a karaoke and a free “bar bingo” night. Music at the bar ends early and we were never bothered by it. The pool is heated and very nice. It is quite a distance from the marina but the staff has been more than happy to give us a golf cart ride there. It isn’t cheap to get into town (Uber was $20 one way) and the route to the closest store was not safe for a bike ride. Instacart is available here and the marina sells most necessities on site. We are 10 days into our two week stay and have enjoyed every minute of it.

This harbor is now our home port. I could not ask for a better place to stay. After sailing over 2000 miles to get here, I have not found another marina that compares.

This is the third year we have been using Burnt Store for transient dockage while cruising Charlotte Harbor. It is under new ownership (Safe Harbor Marinas) and continues to be a first class marina. WiFi connectivity has improved with antennas on the docks. The inlet channel was dredged recently and ongoing maintenance is evident. The harbormaster and dock crew are efficient, friendly and skilled. Fuel and holding tank pump out services are great. The marina is well protected from wind and waves...an excellent place to wait out bad weather. A recent addition for provisioning is a Dollar General store just south of the main entrance on Burnt Store road. Slip rental prices continue to be very reasonable for the area.

This is not just a "marina" in the traditional sense. On first visit, you get a sense that you've stumbled upon some sort of little utopia. This is a community! It's more than dockage, or fuel, or a restaurant. It is a respite for the weary cruiser, a chance to get off the boat and take long walks along the water or admire the greenery of beautiful, well-manicured lawns. It's where friends gather to sing karaoke unabashedly, drink beer, and drive golf carts into the night without fear of being put to the test of a breathalyzer. This is a place where many a boater has visited, only to return permanently.

We stayed in Burnt Store Marina 20 nights over the last two months (Feb-Mar 2016). In our travels from Tennessee to Florida it ranks No. 1 with us. The facilities are clean, pleasant and well-maintained. The Harbormaster and Dock crew are very helpful, friendly and knowledgeable. Slip fees are very competitive for the area. The associated store and restaurant are nice as well. The wifi is poor, apparently because of the service provider. Beware if you need repair services. Burnt Store Services, which is onsite but not associated with the marina, does not return calls, does not work on diesel engines, and doesn't seem to care. Several other independent engine repair companies who frequent the marina also don't answer their phone or return calls. A local boater told us they are busy enough to not have to return calls to stay in business. Although not associated with the marina the lack of local service-oriented repair services is a clear downside to an otherwise first class marina.

This is a fantastic marina. One of the most beautiful, full-featured, and reasonably priced we've stayed in. Really nice restaurant and bar, convenience store/deli, 2 pool/rec-areas with laundry, etc. The WiFi was indeed spotty, but that was one of the few downsides.

We highly recommend this one.
