Our stay at Fort Rachel Marina was excellent. We called the marina on VHF 9 and were promptly directed to our riverside slip. We were cheerfully greeted with assistance at the dock. The facilities were clean and well kept. There are hands there for service. River views were great. We were even provided with a concierge package for things to do and places to visit.....a nice feeling of hospitality. This is our favorite place to stay in Mystic. It is a close walk or dingy ride to anything in town. We look forward to returning.

Probably one of the best, if not the best marina we have ever stayed at. Location is ideal, with convenient walking distance to downtown mystic. The marina itself, is staffed with some of the nicest and helpful people I've ever met. Laura is super, as she always carries a big smile and is extremely helpful with questions and suggestions for things to do. The rest rooms were impeccable. Hospitals should take note, if they want to compare to a standard of cleanliness. My wife and I both made the same comment to each other, after meeting outside after showers..."I would have been finished a few minutes sooner but I had to wipe the spot off the floor that my flip flops left, when i put them on". We both walked out, without them on, so as to not dirty the floor. Very impressed and highly recommended as a really, really nice marina to transient at. Thanks so much, to the wonderful staff!!!

Awesome location and staff! Dave and Laura are excellent.
Don Sargent, the GM, is well known in local marine circels and is a great resource for all things boating. I’ve known Don for over 30 years, great guy.

Fort Rachel Marina was a great place to stay. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Shore power was included. The showers were very clean with fresh flowers in the mens as well as the womens. It is close to the town and Mystic Seaport. They only have a few spots for transients so reserve as far ahead as possible.

good location and short walk to town. Docks very old, bathrooms clean but not air conditioned.

Great spot for our Mystic visit. Clean washrooms and showers. Friendly staff. Short walk to the center of Mystic and the Seaport Museum. I will stop here again!

Staff was friendly and accommodating. We were greeted with a helpful packet of information and magazines covering the local happenings. Wonderful location as we could easily walk to shops and restaurants as well as the Mystic Museum. Loved everything!

Stayed at Ft. Rachel July 27-31, 2017. Awesome stay. The marina staff was terrific. They were waiting on the dock for us when we arrived, helped us tie up and came down a few times during our stay to see if we needed anything. Extremely accommodating. The office had a bag of goodies for us including WiFi and restrooms codes. The restrooms were clean and well maintained.There are grills and picnic tables available which we took advantage off. The marina is tucked behind the RR bridge wall and is very protected in weather which we did experience one day when the wind really kicked up. The area is residential and small business in older homes and the yards are beautifully landscaped for you to enjoy the short walk to downtown. Even closer is the Captain Daniel Packer Inn &Tavern and Friar Tucks Pub.
A dinghy is a must in Mystic. There are so many coves and places to stop and grab a bite to eat while you explore.We will definitely stay at Fort Rachel again. Looking forward to next year!

Great location near downtown Mystic. They responded immediately after we hailed them on the radio. Dave and Don were their to help us tie up. Once secure they hooked us up to shore power and gave us the rundown on the marina facilities and local restaurants.
Laura in the office was great. She gave us a bag with all kinds of information including wifi. cable tv, and a map of the Mystic sites.
The marina was quiet with the exception of a train going by from time to time. Regular marina folks were very friendly.
Overall a very good experience. We'll be back.
