Marina/resort is very nice. Pool is huge and well maintained. The on-site restaurant, Ketch 22 was just so-so. Food average, service quite slow.
by bobkim on Jul 29, 2022
Herrington Harbour South is a great marina. My wife and I go there every year for several days. All the employees are a great help and always are very professional.
Hi bobkim, We appreciate your kind words. Thank you.

Thank you for your hospitality. We enjoyed coming back to HHS. One disappointment I’d like to raise, has to do with our request to be placed in the entrance causeway, only to be told you were fully booked. Interestingly enough, there were even fewer boats tied up there this morning, than there were last night upon our arrival. There were numerous vacancies on that dock. Instead, we had to navigate the very close quarters, whilst dodging the fast-approaching storms only to be tucked all the way in at D11. If we had been where we’d requested, this would clearly have been a five-star review, but it seemed much too easy to decline our request. This was confirmed when we had a response to this message this morning, indicating that you were not fully booked, and we should have demanded to speak with someone more senior. To that I suggest you give your employees the power to delight each guest.

Very nice marina.
Bathrooms could be updated.
by kingzransom on Jul 20, 2022
Love it there. Beautiful beach with free kayaks & paddle boards. Beautiful large pool and poolside bar. The restaurant was delicious.
by charlesjlove on Jul 17, 2022
Nice greeting, excellent facilities. Beautiful pool, nice beach. Ketch-22 restaurant is very good and reasonably priced. Careful of the Deli across the street for breakfast, as there is a 20-30 minute wait to get your egg and cheese bagel or breakfast burrito. Fuel prices are better than most in the area (certainly better than at Inner Harbor in Baltimore by $1/gallon.
by hgmet on Jul 17, 2022
Facilities are great. Staff is helpful and friendly. Restrooms are clean. Shuttle service to North Beach is very convenient.
by dragonflybeth on Jul 17, 2022
Great Venue, Ketch 22 was an awesome place to eat! Clean and beautiful, we will be back.
by tcasey1958 on Jul 17, 2022
Herrington South is always a fun visit, love the pool, the Catch 22 restaurant, the dock hands, the docks, and the dock residents who treat us transients like old friends EVERY time we visit!
by dshell on Jul 17, 2022
I waited too long for my food, I didn't get enough help docking my 50 foot boat, boaters are a fickle bunch. I read these reviews and it gives me a good chuckle. Stay at this marina it's really nice, and get the cowboy wrap from the deli across the street.
Hi dshell, Your 5 star review gave us a good smile and thank you for your support. We empathize with our guests regarding any frustrations they encounter while getting organized and settling in. It takes a while to "unplug" and relax and we do all we can to make that happen. Thanks again and have an amazing day!
by duggerrw on Jul 05, 2022
Great resort facility. Definitely will be back.
Thank you so much for the 5 stars. You made our day!
by cwesjenn on Jul 04, 2022
The boat was very still. It made for good sleeping. Too many speeches prior to the fireworks. The dockhands made a great effort to pump out my boat. Fireworks were fantastic. Could not connect to Wi-Fi for TV tho.
Hi cwesjenn, We are thrilled to hear that you enjoyed the fireworks and had a good night sleep 💤 Thank you for taking the time to share your experience with us.
by djtalon on Jul 04, 2022
Great staff. Excellent Marina!
Hi djtalon, Thank you for the 5 stars. Every day, our crew looks forward to keeping and building new relationships with the members and guests of the resort. We are so happy to hear you had a great experience!

Incredible resort with a great staff.
Thank you mike.shupp! We greatly appreciate the kind words.
by happysailor on Jun 21, 2022
Beautiful facility. Grounds are spectacular. Have stayed previously and things seemed a bit less organized this year. Heavy NW winds made docking more interesting than normal and our first approach was spot on but dock hand was working with another boat. Another dock hand should have been there. Not fun having to deal with second approach. The restaurant was packed and behind. Food took an hour to arrive. Overall very nice stay with beautiful weather.
Thank you for visiting us! We are beyond happy you found our Marina so beautiful.
by taramcm77 on Jun 20, 2022
Oh where to begin, we r a larger sailboat 46 feet. It was a stressful sail with 25 knot winds and choppy surf. We were placed on dock F the fairway was narrow but we managed in 25 k wind to dock on 1st try. Only to experience an hours worth of messing around with the electric. Needless to say they determined it was their issue the breaker kept tripping. It was either stay there or move 2 docks over in 25 knot winds. I wanted to move why spend $200 a night, I could be on anchor for free at that point. The move was awful and that was no one’s fault. Okay so now we are tuck in. We go over to Ketch 22 to grab a drink and a bite to eat. We sat at the outside bar order a bottle of wine and 2 appetizers. 40 minutes later after asking several time about our food and being told the chef was backed up we received our luke warm steak fries and cheese curds. We complained at this point I was over it. The check was tossed to us by a now rude bar tender. The facilities are beautiful, and the pool way too crowed. I would not return. So disappointed.
Hi taramcm77, We are sorry to hear that your visit was frustrating and thank you for bringing it to our attention. We would like the chance to provide you with a better experience next time. You can reach us anytime at 410-741-5100 or by email to [email protected]
Again, thank you for your feedback.
by twjones on Jun 17, 2022
Great people and great facilities. Loved it! Will be back when we can spend more time here.
Thank you for visiting us! We love to hear about guests experiences!
by kterry46 on May 25, 2022
Certainly one of the best on the Chesapeake! Location and people were absolutely superb! It's no wonder how many awards they keep winning. We will be back!
Thank you so much!
by cwareing on May 04, 2022
The crab soup at the deli next to the marina was just about the best I have ever had! Everything was clean and staff very friendly
Thank you cwareing! Come back for another serving of soup anytime.
by wnilsen on Apr 27, 2022
A great a marina! Great slips, location, showers and restaurant. Even a small store in which you can get provisions. The staff are lovely and made a nice facility that much better. Overall, a great place to stay!
Thank you for your kind words! We look forward to welcoming you back soon.
by carvera1 on Jan 11, 2022
Worst Marina ever. We overpaid for a year and were treated horribly. A stranger walked right onto our slip and trespassed on our boat to post selfies online and security did nothing. Could have been a very dangerous situation for our family. The staff were racist telling me where I could not walk on a path but several white people had just passed before me. The owner did not want to renew our contract and did not want to tell us why because he knew he was discriminating against us and told us we would like a property up north better. Will never go back.
by gshatraw on Nov 20, 2021
I stayed for a couple of nights to visit relatives on my way south. Had a great stay with the deli and market being a surprisingly great lunch spot. Marina couldn't have been more helpful I left and had a small problem with my engine and got towed back in. Staff provided a list of businesses to get repairs done. They even asked if I needed a ride to a store for food. Great customer service! Facility was clean and very nice. I will most likely stop on my way back north.
by ahelfand534 on Nov 16, 2021
Great stay at Herrington harbor south.
Had to leave our catamaran there for about a week. They had space and we were very secure.
Dock master and dock hands very helpful, boat was in great hands.
Would definitely stop there again.
by persistence46 on Oct 28, 2021
Spent two days on October. Exceptional Marina, great location, good food in the restaurant and deli. Top notch bathrooms, clean spacious and lots of hot water. We’ll be back.
Thank you for spending time with us and for your kind words. We are looking forward to seeing you again.
by ron3 on Oct 22, 2021
Great overnight stay! Thanks to Melissa!
Awwwww, thanks Ron 🙌
by lboynt on Oct 18, 2021
Really nice marina! Great amenities. Clean showers. Restaurant and market across the street. We went into North Beach, a cute town just south, and had a great meal. There were lots of highly rated restaurants there. 40 minute drive into Annapolis from here without much traffic even during the boat show.
by raifordr on Oct 17, 2021
All HHS staff that we met, Griffin, deckhands, and fuel dock people were very friendly and concerned with making sure all was right for our stay. We had requested tie up at their small floating dock to make debarking and embarking easier for our elderly dog (pun hiding in there). Griffin readily agreed to make it happen, but then repositioned us to B dock because of seagull issues at the floating dock. Proved to be a smart move not only for that reason but because of some expected rough weather. B dock was great! 4 stars because we couldn’t use facilities like the pool which was already closed yet had to pay full price anyway and the restaurant, Ketch 22, while having great ambience had a surprisingly limited menu. Place is landscaped like a beautiful country club.
Thank you for your patience and understanding with getting you docked for the evening. It sounds like the seagulls were on 'dooty' that day 😉. We are so happy to hear that you had a wonderful visit and hope to see you back at Herrington Harbour South again soon!
by coolchange on Oct 12, 2021
Very nice marina that specializes in weddings and parties yet keeps the marina quiet at night. Nice restaurant and deli across the street for some supplies.could use dock hands- fuel and restaurants fairly priced
Many thanks for the 5 stars! That was kind of you to take the time to submit a review. We hope to see you again soon.
by fitzsailing on Oct 04, 2021
Great facility. Spotless! I hope to get back there in season when the pool is open. Price per ft is at the higher end but worth it. I've paid more for less at other facilities.
We hope you come back when the pool is open too. It opens early in the morning and stays open for night swimming on the weekends - so much fun. Until then, enjoy boating on the Chesapeake.
by rlwest05 on Sep 22, 2021
September 20-21,2021: Enjoyable as always. Staff is courteous and accommodating. We will be back and recommend HHS to all our boating friends. We truly appreciate them working with us when we had to cut our stay short due to impending bad weather.
July 202: Still one of our favorites to visit. Staff is great. Restrooms are very clean. We love the pool. There is still an issue with hot water in some bathhouses e.g. hot is cold and cold is hot in a few of the showers so be careful. Also, on drain was clogged. Otherwise no issues and we will visit again and again.
One of our favorite marinas to visit. Staff are friendly, courteous and helpful. Our only complaint was lack of hot water and water pressure in the bath house.
Thank you for visiting Herrington Harbour South on two occasions this year. It was a pleasure to have you here. The hot and cold water was a one-of-a-kind maintenance item, and thank you for being careful. We're glad you noticed right away. Thank you for your kind words regarding the staff. They enjoy welcoming everyone to make sure all have a good time. Come back soon!
by maalexander317 on Sep 22, 2021
We love HHS but would have liked having the pool open till the end of month. The staff here is fabulous, the restrooms are clean, and the deli across the street is good.
Thank you. We are happy you enjoyed your stay.
by rhhedrick on Sep 17, 2021
Have stayed here twice . Very clean and will kept. Will stay again if in the area. Would be a five with better dock hands. Only marina I have ever been to that ask if you want someone to grab limes. Even when you say yes you still may not get help..
Thank you for your review and feedback. No two days are alike at Herrington South and we are happy to hear you have visited twice this year. A lot of our seasonal staff returns to school locally or out of town this time of year, which makes greeting guests quickly challenging. Thank you for your patience and come back soon!
by moorejc on Sep 13, 2021
Comprehensive resort with lots of amenities. Beautiful landscaping and excellent staff. Bathrooms wre the best I've seen at any marina.
Thank you for your kind words. :)
by johnsons3 on Aug 29, 2021
First time staying here. The price is high, I’ll assume due to all the amenities. For such a ‘resort’ marina, surprised the dock piers are not full length. The WiFi was touch and go. Nice areas to walk around, Beach was very nice, swimming pool was large with plenty of room. Staff were helpful. The restaurant, Ketch 22, was disappointing and would not go again.
We are disappointed to hear that your visit to Ketch 22 was disappointing. Your feedback is very important to us and you are welcome to email the details to [email protected]
so we can insure your next visit to the restaurant is better. Thank you for spending time with us this summer and come back soon!
by dspatio on Aug 26, 2021
Great place to unplug and rest. very well maintained. Stayed here twice now both times were great
It is amazing to hear how you have consistently enjoyed your stays with us here at Herrington! We hope to continue the trend and see you again soon!
by arainey0123 on Aug 18, 2021
Very nice marina with a beach, pool, restaurant, and playground. We really enjoyed our time here and will be back in the near future.
We are so glad to hear you enjoyed our marina and all the amenities we have to offer. We would love to see you again soon!
by jodallas2010 on Aug 17, 2021
Beautiful facility. Would definitely recommend staying here.
Thank you so much for such a great review! We would love to have you stay with us again soon.
by rockon1234 on Aug 16, 2021
Love, love, love this place. The pool is very large. Shading has been placed so that we can avoid the sun. The piers are composite so there are no splinters. The grounds are well maintained. The deli across the street is handy. The beach is wonderful. The only suggestion would be to add a little more variety to the menu at Ketch 22. We though there would be a fresh fish of the day.
We are so glad you had such a lovely stay at our marina and what a great suggestion for Ketch 22! We hope to see you again soon!
by pjlongo2 on Aug 15, 2021
Beautiful facility with excellent staff. I actually got driven to Ace hardware by one of the staff to get a part I needed! I can't wait to return.
Thank you so much for such an amazing review! Our shuttle is definitely a great feature we offer :)
by dougfletcher on Aug 12, 2021
First time at Herrington. Came by boat. The transient dock was very nice. Griffin assisted in getting us docked. Once here nothing else needed. Pool, resturants, convenience store all in walking distance. The property is magnificent I am glad the owners early on saw the beauty here and enhanced it. I sent photo's to freinds and the thought I was on an island cruise. Could not believe this is in Maryland. Thank you Herrington the stay was wonderful. We will be back.
Doug and Chrissy.
Hi Doug and Chrissy - We are beyond happy to hear that you had such a fantastic experience with us. We truly appreciate the review and everyone hopes to see you guys again soon !

by amynlou on Aug 12, 2021
One of our favorite stops on the bay. Great marina, friendly staff, wonderful amenities, ketch 22 was delicious for both meals and the market across the street a value add!
Thank you so much for sharing your experience with us. We hope to see you again soon!
by bboarman on Aug 10, 2021
Great place to stay . The grounds are just beautiful. New Restsurant Katch 22 was a great experience. Can’t wait to go back.
We are glad you had such a great stay! We would love for you to visit us again!

We are so happy to hear you enjoyed our Marina!
by tkurtkaufman on Aug 06, 2021
Great marina, facilities and staff. A very relaxing destination. Definitely a 5 star!
The pool is great, and if they were a perfect 10, a small workout facility would put them over the top.
by charlesglenn2 on Aug 05, 2021
We love Herrington Harbour South. It’s a great facility with a laid back resort atmosphere. It was the perfect destination for a short, relaxing getaway.
Thank you so much for such a great review! We are very happy to hear you had a relaxing getaway!
by jeannie515 on Aug 04, 2021
I enjoyed our stay but I had the opportunity to stay at Herrington Harbour North and I really liked the location, all the seating and access to restaurants in the area. The pool was less crowded and they had music every night. South appears to cater more to wedding venues and less to Marina guests.
by larstk66 on Jul 30, 2021
We love this place. Very nice and clean marina/resort and the weather was perfect. Most definitely a place to visit 👍🏻👍🏻
Sharing this 360 panoramic picture from our visit;

by lpolistina on Jul 23, 2021
Great Marina Staff and Griffin were very helpful. We used the pool with two young children. Facilities were 100% and clean. Family-friendly. We loved the marina and it was easy to navigate. We made a boat trip to Harrington North one night for dinner. Great staff shuttle great. Our kids made lots of friends.
It is so great to hear that you had such a wonderful experience with us and were able to check out all that our marina has to offer!
by louditomo on Jul 20, 2021
Herrington south is one of the nicest and cleanest, well organized marina that I have visited. People are friendly and take pride in their jobs. The best marina in the bay.
Thank you so much for sharing your wonderful experience with us! We hope to see you again!

by rjohn831 on Jul 18, 2021
This was our first visit to HHS and we really enjoyed it. The beach, the pool, the pool bar, the restaurant were all fantastic. They responded on the radio right away with clear directions on where to dock and someone was there to help with the lines. It was a very busy summer weekend but it never felt crowded or rushed. Definitely going to return for another visit.
We are ecstatic to hear that you enjoyed your visit here at Herrington Harbour South. We hope to see you again!
by allegra73 on Jul 17, 2021
Amazing stay.. Tyler was a huge help, we will be returning later this summer!
So great to hear you had an amazing stay!
by avidboater2 on Jul 15, 2021
Stellar property and staff! Always a memorable stay at Herrington Harbour South. Entering the channel, the fuel dock staff were extremely helpful with docking. We even got some cups at check in to add to our little collection. Excellent pool and beach, kids loved the paddle boards. Will be returning soon!
Thank you so much for such a glowing review! We are very happy to hear that you had a great experience.
by courtedvi on Jul 11, 2021
We've been enjoying this marina with our family of 5 for years. I have 3 kids 7-13 and we brought a cousin along on this trip. I have never had a negative thing to say about this place until now. It's been a favorite stop of ours, however this year they refused to give resort passes to everyone on our vessel- 6 of us. The office girl even called in the harbor master to see if she could break the 4 pass rule. It was 90 degrees and we were all hot with our pool bag in hand. He eventually sent me to the pool to get pool passes after I walked out of the office in tears. I later learned that pool passes and resort passes are not the same. My teenage daughter was chastised for being at the park at 10:00 at night for carrying the pool pass instead of a resort pass. It was an awful experience and I felt very much discriminated against for having a family bigger than 4 people. Not the same family friendly marina it's been know to be. I'm sad to say we may not be including this marina in our annual family boat vacation next year.
by punky on Jul 06, 2021
Beautiful and relaxing visit!!
We are so glad you had the opportunity to stay with us and enjoyed your visit!
by bajinaji on Jun 30, 2021
We came in under adverse storm conditions, and the dock hand was adept at tying us to the outer dock. Once the storm passed, we moved to our assigned slip. Everything is still top notch. Ketch-22 is good, and the store across the street has good supplies and sandwiches.
Hi bajinaji, We are happy to hear you had a delicious meal and experience at Ketch 22. Thank you for your review.
by whyknotmd on Jun 26, 2021
One of our all time favorite places to stay! We absolutely love the marina, the grounds, the beach, the pool and the restaurants. It is a place where you can step away from life and truly unwind. My favorite spot is relaxing at the rocking chairs! Pick the right weekend and you may even catch some fireworks from a wedding! A must stay place!
We are so happy to hear that you had such a great stay and really appreciate such an amazing review!
by treasurehunter on Jun 25, 2021
Very nice facilities. Best bathrooms and showers on the bay! Nice restaurant & bar. Staff was very helpful.

by tkreiner on Apr 03, 2021
May stay was super short as I was only transiting through. Came in a little after 5:00 and staff was still here at my slip to help me in. Beautiful marina and really nice amenities. Mini grocery store and cafe across the street is awesome. Would definitely recommend this marina and hope to be back again for a longer stay.
It is so great to hear that you enjoyed your stay with us! We hope to see you again should you decide to come by the area again!
by william4381 on Oct 27, 2020
We had a great stay,would come back
We ate at 22# food was good (service took a long time) we where there over one hour to eat at 4:30 pm,The waitress had no bus boys to help and etc.
Hi william4381, We are delighted to know you had a nice stay. Thank you for the feedback on the restaurant. We will relay the information to their management. Cheers!
by bobx on Oct 22, 2020
Dylan, the young man on the dock was very accommodating. The facilities impeccable, as usual... we will be back
Sue & Bob
Thank you bobx. Dylan worked on the beach this summer and is going to stay with us on the docks through the winter. We are very happy he's here. :)
by silverheels on Oct 19, 2020
This is a very pretty marina. Its clean and well maintained and the laundry has new, front loading machines with reasonable prices. The grounds are dog friendly with bags provided in numerous locations. The people are friendly and respectful of others. There's also a nice restaurant on site. The major complaint with this marina is the internet, which ranged from abysmal (dial-up speeds) to non-existent for the entire 11 days of our stay. Given the degree to which everyone's life is now conducted online, especially during COVID, this is an egregious shortcoming. The one other complaint we had was that upon arrival at 3 pm there was no one answering the vhf calls. We had to phone the marina office and were put on hold and sat in the narrow channel for several minutes while waiting for the dock assignment. Also be prepared to tie yourself up to the fixed docks.
Hi silverheels, Thank you for taking the time to write a review about your recent visit. We agree that the wifi has been spotty this season. The internet provider and wifi provider are working to fix the issue. Enjoy cruising they bay. :)
by jsutton9 on Oct 15, 2020
Clean, friendly, great restaurant, bar and music. Dog friendly.
Thank you jsutton9. Come back again soon!
by kevinwatkins96 on Sep 14, 2020
Best Marina I have stayed at on the Chesapeake. It is an oasis- beautiful grounds, fantastic docks with modern hookups, great pool, restaurant and beach with free amenities. We will be back many times!!
Hi kevinwatkins96, Awesome! We are so happy when we hear when someone has enjoyed their time at Herrington South. 🤩
by jaaapeee on Sep 09, 2020
Facilities were great, harbormaster was very helpful. Only negative was that many guests were not maintaining social distance nor masks
Hi Jaaapeee, Thank you for sharing your experience. Face masks are required when social distancing isn't possible, especially on docks and walkways. Thank you for following the guidelines while you were here. Please come again soon. Outdoors is definitely the best place to be in 2020.
by saunderslandscape on Sep 08, 2020
A variety of amenities and top notch service. Highly recommend!
Hi saunderslandscape, Thank you for your kind words and we look forward to seeing you again!
by blown284 on Sep 08, 2020
This marina is the BEST OF THE BEST! Absolutely stunning grounds, well kept bathrooms, blazing fast internet, amazing pool, amazing restaurant (Ketch 22)..... very knowledgable staff. Also very nice beach with kayaks, paddle boards, etc. I will keep coming back to this marina!!!!!
Hi blown284, Thank you for all of the fantastic compliments. Fall is right around the corner and a beautiful time to come back. 😉
by myramae410sr on Aug 31, 2020
Harrington Harbour South is a well maintained resort. Lots to do for all people, safe clean environment, and the staff is exceptionally friendly and helpful. I would recommend this marina to fellow boaters.
Hi myramae410sr, Glad to hear you had a fantastic visit. Come again soon!
by tjastro on Aug 29, 2020
An awesome marina!!! Very friendly staff. We always love coming here! Tried Ketch 22 again and unfortunately I was somewhat disappointed again. Very poor service. Great pool and nice atmosphere.
Hi tjastro, Thank you for making Herrington South part of your summer plans on the Chesapeake. We are disappointed to hear about your service at the restaurant. Please email us at [email protected]
or call the Marina Office at 410.741.5100 if you would like to speak about it in more detail. Come back soon.
by aspencon on Aug 29, 2020
Always our choice for the end of a long cruise down the bay.....such a pleasant atmosphere to top off a great time......the most well trained dock hands ever...especially Ryan....he knows more about the proper way to tie up than a lot of boaters..... from our slips at the beach pier we got to see part of a wedding....in addition to so many activities.....and a very nice lunch outside.....
Hi aspencon, Thank you so much for taking the time to write a review of your recent visit. We will let Ryan know that he's doing a great job. :)
by piracy on Aug 24, 2020
We absolutely love this place. We HIGHLY recommend this to anyone traveling in the Bay. We are reluctant to leave but the journey continues. Until the next time...
Hi piracy, We are happy to hear that you had a great time!
by jackiebell on Aug 18, 2020
By far the nicest marina resort I've visited. Went for just a couple days this summer on part of a multi-stop trip. Next time, I think we will stay all week just here! Lots of stuff to see and do, unbelievably maintained grounds, great location for short day trips. Can't wait to come back.
Hi jackiebell, We are so happy to hear that we were a stop on your trip. Thank you for your review. ☺️
by time_to_play on Aug 09, 2020
Our 1st time pleasure to visit this resort marina, we enjoyed both the beach & pool areas. On site restuarant Ketch 22 was awesome (compliments to the chef & staff) Marina grounds were impeccable, marina staff was very accommodating & super helpful when we had mechanical issues. My request to the facility would be to add loaner bikes to their “stable” of offerings with the town North Beach a short trip away making a great opportunity for visitors. No doubt we’ll make a return again soon.
Hi time_to_play, We are so happy to hear that you enjoyed your first visit to Herrington Harbour South. The staff works hard to exceed expectations and make your stay the best. Thank you for recognizing them. Let us know the next time you are here and we can make arrangements to get you into North Beach for a visit. Come again soon!
by jfkoehler1 on Aug 09, 2020
Amazing place, very well manicured!
This place is huge! Great Pool & Bar!
Thank you jfkoehler1, The Pool & Bar are favorites. 😀
by rdulin on Aug 09, 2020
Fantastic facility. Very protected and beautiful. Nice pool, great food. We enjoyed the nature walk around the marina and through the marsh to the wedding venues.
We look forward to visiting again soon
Hi rdulin, Thank you for the wonderful review. There are so many flowers, boats and wildlife along the nature trail and we are glad you enjoyed it. Come again soon!

Haven’t stayed at HHS in over 20 years (no particular reason). Quite impressed with all the improvements in amenities! Food was delicious and drinks were very good! Will definitely put them on my “recommended places to visit “ list.
Hi southerncharm, Welcome back! ☺️We are always a work in progress to make sure everyone has an amazing time while here. Thank you again.

Herrington South is always a favorite for transient visits and they did not disappoint this trip in July. The dock hands are helpful and friendly as are the staff. The grounds are beautiful with gazebos and plenty of grills and picnic areas. The pool is the largest on the bay that I have seen with plenty of seating. Then there is the beach if that is your preference. We did not eat in the restaurant but I was told it was excellent although pricey. You can walk to the bar or wait for staff to get a drink while at the pool. Their bath houses are all individual, clean and roomy and air conditioned. If you want to feel like you are on vacation at the island resort, this is a great choice on the Chesapeake Bay.
Hi stmoment, We are please to hear you had a fantastic time at our marina. We look forward to welcoming you back.

Docking and registration was flawless! The 6 boats in our group were placed on the transient B dock by the pool. The pool was clear, clean and refreshing in spite of the very hot weather. Pool was way more crowded than we expected with the supposed social distancing!! Staff coming around asking you to leave when they let too many in was not cool. I felt sorry for the staff assigned to do that!! Timed bracelets may be a better idea! Ketch 22 restaurant is awesome. Courtney, our server both nights could not have been more accommodating, she was fantastic. The grounds and landscaping are beautiful! HH South is always a hit!
Hi rmkurek, We are happy you enjoyed your stay. It's wonderful to know that your you had a smooth check in and a great time. The pool had limitations this season due to Covid. We did have to ask those who had been there the longest to rotate out of the pool to accommodate guests waiting to get in. Thank you for being so understanding to the situation. Come back again soon!

Awesome marina, I always enjoy the stay.
Hi mstickle66, Thank you for taking the time to give us 5 stars! 👍
by ellenw46 on Jul 08, 2020
Place is definitely nice. We came in at a time when about 7 or 8 other boats came in so the dock hands were busy and we had a hard time getting a response on the radio - and then zero help at the dock. It's a little high priced, but it IS a resort after all.
It's a long way to get to the amenities.... bring your bike!
by tcasey58 on Jun 15, 2020
Herrington Harbour South is just the best resort marina on the bay. We live going there.
by ascharfmd on Jun 06, 2020
One of our very favorite marinas to visit. Even after all the Covid-19 stuff, the marina did not disappoint. Although are still catching up with some of the landscaping it is still Quite beautiful. Everyone is following safe practices but not overdoing it. Restrooms were sparkling clean. Restaurant across the street had fantastic food as usual and ice cream. Great job on the marina everyone. We will be back soon!
by davemoldover on Mar 18, 2020
early season stay. beautiful place. will be back.
by jakl on Oct 14, 2019
We pulled in after a 10 hour run a little past 1700. They close at 1700 and we were met by Adam and he was very friendly and would not leave until we were securely tied up and had power. Very clean and well maintained marina with either a restaurant (Katch-22) or the deli across the street.
by bobbanks99 on Oct 01, 2019
Friendly service, great location, easy to get into, well marked, beautiful beach. Fun crowd
by wroche3 on Sep 26, 2019
Outstanding service from every member of the staff. They make you feel that you are their top priority......imagine that....a place that actually prioritizes customer service . Great overnight stay, great amenities, great people!
by josephafickjr on Sep 10, 2019
Very nice facility, good restaurant, friendly staff
by jsmac8218 on Sep 02, 2019
Excellent marina, a true destination. Pool, beach, restaurant, deli, paddle boards, kayaks, small sailboats for rent, boat owners parties, movies on the beach, BBQ grills, great slips and docks, etc etc. A must stay for anyone looking for a relaxing stay
by laz on Aug 25, 2019
After a long slog upwind, it was a relief to tie up at Herrington Harbour South. Our dockhand was the asst dockmanster and he was cheerful and helpful, and got us off to a great start for our evening. We went for a quick swim on their mini-beach, and made note of the Hobies and Sunfish for rent - for next time. Showers were nice. Dinner was gourmet excellent, which was a nice surprise as the restaurant and bar project a relaxed pub-style atmosphere. That was nice, but we didn't expect first-rate food as well.
by wer4sail on Aug 23, 2019
Outstanding! Clean, beautifully kept and friendly staff (esp. Aiden!). Lovely pool and facilities and very nice restaurant, it’s conveniently located across from a handy market and deli as well :)
by bellstacy on Aug 18, 2019
Great pool and restaurant and bar
by rcocking2 on Aug 14, 2019
Easy, well marked approach to a nicely maintained marina. Good pool, great beach at the Bed/breakfast. Accommodation for all size boats, w/ water and electricity, wifi. Dock crew seemed unfamiliar with radio protocol, confused about their available accommodations: sent a staff member to the dock to tell instructions to us as we approached- not really helpful over the sound of our engine, and a source of a fair bit of stress to our crew! Staff was very helpful with undocking the next day from a crowded area, however.
Nice place: would recommend.
by freetimetospare on Aug 11, 2019
Nice facilities. Beautiful grounds.
by jspeicher on Aug 04, 2019
One of the best maintain marina we have been too. Access to provisions and food options
The pool is big . Down side ...too many people,it has the feel being at your city pool. No pool service amd gone is the old pool bar.
All in all a very good marina
by svalliere on Jul 23, 2019
Wow ....five star marina only because there is not a ten star rating. The property is the Disney of marinas, beautiful landscaping and no signs of the staff working on the property.
The new restaurant and outdoor pool bar is 5 star also. The staff was even 10 star this is a must go to place not just once a season but many times.
Thank you for such a beautiful property and marina .... and the food was above awesome, you are setting the mark for marinas around the world.
Awesome job to the staff whom I watch work their tails off on one of the hottest days ever in Maryland.
by trinket on Jul 17, 2019
Great place, great service. The staff exhibits pride in the place which is the best outcome for any work group. Will visit again.
by usjxscetrapdqhjav_gw on Jul 15, 2019
Beautiful Resort. Great accommodations. Helpful Friendly Staff. One of our favorite spots to go.
by mcastellitto on Jul 14, 2019
We always love Herrington, the grounds are beautiful, Ketch22 has great food and accommodated our large groups over the years.
Our only draw back with Herrington over the years is there inconsistency in docking. Typically at checkin they will not accept request, i.e beach pier, bulkhead etc. You are told first come first serve.
Then upon arrival with multiple dockages open at these locations it is certainly not first come first saved. Often times told they are reserved.
Rules are rules, just be consistent with what you advertise and your actions.
by reelnauti on Jul 08, 2019
This is one of if not the nicest marina's we have stayed at in the area with very friendly staff. The accommodations and grounds are top notch and of the nicest anywhere. I could not recommend staying here more than that. It is simply a vacation resort atmosphere the should be enjoyed by everyone!
by muddywaters on Jul 05, 2019
I want to THANK YOU and the entire staff for my stay at Herrington Harbour.
We really enjoyed.
As you know, we originally planned to only stay for a couple of days, then extended to 1 week and then to 2 weeks.
That is a direct reflection of you, your staff and the wonderful experience that we had.
Now we are moving our entire boating experience from15+ years on the Potomac to there at Herrington starting 2020
by bestgate on Jul 04, 2019
This marina facility may be the best on the Bay. Staff and dock hands are courteous and helpful. Docks are new kept in excellent repair. Grounds are beautifully landscaped and pool is large and well managed. New outdoor bar is the popular place to hang out. Sunsets are best enjoyed on a lounge chair on the little sandy beach. Quality of food service and restrooms are fair, with restrooms undersized for the scale of such a large marina. This is definitely a fun family destination with which few marinas on the Bay can compare.
by finlain on Jun 30, 2019
The best marina I have stayed in. I have boated in the San Juan Islands, the Virgin Islands and all over the Chesapeake Bay. Herrington Harbor South is like the Disney of marinas.
by stormin99 on Jun 18, 2019
My first visit to Herrington Harbor South will not be my last. Amenities were great, Restaurant was great, everything about the place was fantastic. We went with a group of 4 boats this time and would go again anytime.
by trafalgar1 on Jun 14, 2019
Beautiful grounds. Friendly staff. Only complaint was the bathrooms on Thursday morning. My wife had no hot water in the shower; she saw the “hot” identification but still no hot water. My bathroom was wet....everywhere - floor, walls, chair, shelf, like a hose was brought in and sprayed everywhere.
by ritab on Oct 15, 2018
We have stayed at HHS many times over the past few years and always received excellent customer service. The staff is courteous and friendly. This is really the best marina on the Chesapeake Bay. We have just retired and was finally able to make this our home port starting April 1, 2019. Very clean beautiful grounds and beach. Excellent location on the bay for sailors who want great sailing access as soon as you leave the channel.
by kennedpr on Sep 21, 2018
I got married at Herrington in 2017 and came back on my anniversary with our wife and stayed at the marina for the weekend. The dock staff was extremely helpful and flexible, allowed us to pick the best spot for our catamaran, and allowed easy check out in the morning. The marina is beautiful, the facilities were great, and the restruant was excellent. Highly recommend.
by consultansea on Sep 06, 2018
We love Herrington. No complaints except...it seems that the slip reservation and assignment process could be improved by logging in the special requirements of vessels in a computer as "Notes" or something. It's almost always as if you are just showing up and being placed at random as opposed to a reservation made months in advance. Easy fix.
by ukpasa on Sep 01, 2018
Great stay. Wonderful dock hand (Joey). All staff was most pleasant and helpful. Beautiful pool.
by ourdream on Aug 20, 2018
This is a gorgeous marina with lots of potential. Sadly however they aren’t really interested in happy customers. When we called for a reservation, my husband specifically asked for a slip with close access to the pool and restaurant because I have issues that make walking difficult. We also asked for a port side tie. We were told no problem. When we got there we were directed into a slip with a starboard side tie and not all that close as we were promised. Minutes later another boat was directed into a pier closer to the pool with a port side tie. We later spoke to those boaters and they did not ask to be closer. So what was the point of asking? No one seemed concerned, the deckhands shrugging and saying “sorry”. The dock master did give us a whopping 10% discount. Big deal. I would have preferred what we specifically asked for. It truly is a beautiful, clean marina but if you have any special needs or requests I would not recommend.
by npijimstone on Aug 16, 2018
Great resort type facility
by gosia on Aug 04, 2018
Beautiful marina . We have a great time there. Some many things to do if you come with kids . The staff was working hard to make you feel welcome.
by jhamilton69 on Jul 24, 2018
3rd time we stayed here and still love it. Friendly staff, beautiful grounds, great beach and view and just relaxing. Can’t wait until the next time!
by mc1600 on Jul 10, 2018
Without a doubt our favorite spot. The staff is always friendly and accessible, the grounds are immaculate, and the addition of Ketch22 pushes the whole facility another step above. Will definitely be back.
by peregrine on Jun 25, 2018
It was a good place to stop on way south. Very clean and friendly.
by waynesworld on Jun 25, 2018
Clean facilities. Enjoyed the pool. Loved the food at Ketch 22 and the deli across the street. Beautiful setting for weddings and events. We had a great time!
by happyplace on Jun 13, 2018
Grounds were meticulous and beautiful. Very busy marina. Shower houses and restrooms could use more than 1 cleaning a day.
by nash22 on Jun 12, 2018
Helpful staff, clean bathrooms, great amenities, and beautiful grounds.
I highly recommend it and will be visiting again.
by petechambliss47 on Sep 19, 2017
A great experience, beautiful facility. Breakfast across the street at Chesapeake Market was great. Hop the owners of the bar and restaurant can get open by next year. A real detriment to the experience but they are contractually separate from Herrington Harbor South. Will be back just to enjoy the resort next year!
by atkins95 on Sep 18, 2017
Place was great, service very good. It would have been helpful to know the office to get a power cord closed at 5P sharp. Fortunately some one let us in and worked our problem out.
by hankspector on Sep 17, 2017
Great place. Only negative for me was the mooring assignment. Explained I had a mobility impairment and asked for a side tie, which was accommodated. However, it was the tee head of Echo, a very long walk from everything.
by jimsteinle on Sep 06, 2017
Very nice and clean marina, the grounds are beautiful and well maintained. The staff was friendly and helpful. Need to get the restaurant open. We will come back.
by arsandin on Aug 28, 2017
Marina employees were super friendly. Took care of all my dock lines, shore power, and water. As soon as I checked in they provided me a map of the hotel/marina, wifi info, passes to the pool, and keys to the bathroom. Area clean and quite. I am coming back soon!
by mcthruster on Aug 07, 2017
Wonderful resort. Great facilities and Tyler remembered our favorite slip and put us there!
We will be back!!
by scooper321 on Aug 07, 2017
This is an A+ resort. Great facilities. Numerous clean bathrooms. The restaurant isn't open (and I'm not sure why it takes almost a year to remodel and open a new one) but the old one was great so I suspect the new one will be, too. Beautiful grounds, lots of places to cookout. The Bay's best pool. The only negative was putting our group on the transient pier in the main channel instead of in slips. We got rocked a lot. Last time I visited I had a slip. It's a pricey marina to,pay for to be stuck on the main channel in and out.
by ospreypoint on Aug 01, 2017
Great child friendly marina, grounds were beautiful. Harbour master and staff very friendly. Definitely a great family destination.
by jonesfam214 on Jul 28, 2017
Wed really enjoyed our brief stay here. The pool is very nice and the bathrooms are as good as some hotels. The slip holders are some of the friendliest by far. We are looking forward to a return trip next year.
Our only complaint is that our dockhand was very inexperienced. He wasn't much help tieing up and tangled up our power cords. Just be prepared to handle business yourself.
However, this is by far one of the better marinas we have stayed at. Wish we had came sooner.
by cjhavershop on Jul 05, 2017
Herrington is a beautiful, well-run, constantly changing full-service marina with tons of amenities! We love the Independence Day celebration there and go every year. The fireworks are spectacular!
by bensolomon on Jul 05, 2017
Herrington Harbour South was great as usual. The grounds are impeccably landscaped. It is clean, and everyone is friendly. We always enjoy our stay.
by jazboat on Jun 16, 2017
Beautiful facility, great dockhands. Only downside was poor WiFi.
by masonprops on Jun 12, 2017
We really enjoyed our stay! Restaurant and Tiki bar were closed down but they accommodated by having runners at the pool so that you could order food and drinks from deli across the street. All staff is very friendly and helpful.
