Another great visit at the marina, although this time we were at the transient dock at the entrance/exit channel. It can get a bit rocky at this location when strong wind was blowing NNE. The staff were always friendly and accommodating. HHS is one of our go to marinas.

We arrived after hours but had a dock assignment and had no trouble finding our way. Docks are fixed but have large posts that are easy to tie. Power outlets had both 30 and50 amp. Outlets were in good repair and voltage was good. The restaurant, Ketch22 was outstanding and reasonably priced. Definitely on our list for return trip.
Hi Tim! We greatly appreciate your kind words about the marina and restaurant, Ketch 22. We are happy to know that you had a wonderful experience while you were here. Thank you again!

We've stayed at HHS many times including earlier this year. As always the facility is wonderful, beautifically landscaped, well-kept up. Bathhouses are clean, docks in excellent condition. The new (to us) dockmaster Felipe did an excellent job getting our boat docked, and was very friendly and helpful. The only reason for the four-star rating (vs five) was that hte pool was closed combined with the oppressive (95+) heat. I understand the difficult in retaining lifegards and other staff after school starts back up, but other marina pools we visit permit "swim at your own risk" operation. I wish this one would have as well. Other than that modest quibble, a very nice stay overall.
Hi Larry! Thank you for choosing Herrington South for your getaways on the Bay this year. We are happy that Felipe got you settled in for your stay. We will pass along your compliments to him. It was disappointing that the hottest days of this summer coincided with the seasonal closure of our pool. It is one of our most popular amenities. Once again, thank you for choosing Herrington South, and we hope to welcome you again soon.

Amazing resort marina in Maryland on the Chesapeake Bay. Great restaurant and Deli on-site and numerous excellent restaurants a short distance away. Also on-site is an Inn and Sandy beach. The monthly slip holder parties (Food, wine and beer) and themed (4th July, Pirate etc) parties are outstanding! The entire staff is like family!
Hi Richard! We are truly touched by your kind words and your comparison of our staff to family. It's always a pleasure getting to know everyone, and we enjoy spending time here as much as you do.

This marina and resort are the best! The staff are so helpful and friendly; the marina is very well maintained; the resort is beautiful with lovely with well maintained landscaping, a beautiful beach with amenities, a huge swimming pool, a restaurant where everything we had is super delish, live music that was fun. We stayed here on our boat with our small grandchildren (5 and 3) for a week and it was perfect! The beach, pool, playground, walking paths, deli for yummy meals and ice cream cones, etc. were perfect to keep us all entertained! This was not our first time here and it certainly won't be our last! Thank you, Herrington Harbor South, for making all our visits to you super enjoyable!

This is a great Marina and has a resort feel. So nice to take advantage of for a couple days. The outside bar had a couple of bartenders who must have had a bad day, not great when you have young kids in earshot, and then had fun shooting flies off the bar with a salt rifle. Wonder how the people down range felt about that. Once the main bartender came on all calm was restored.
We loved the pool, relaxing beach, took advantage of the gym and Ketch 22 restaurant.
The check in was professional very friendly. We were met by an experienced dock hand who helped us tie up, get power and water sorted out, and then gave us an overview of the Marina.
The check out was very easy.
Can’t wait to come back.

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. Great place to visit on your boat!
Hi Jean! We are so happy to hear that you loved your experience at Herrington Harbour. You described our marina perfectly; we want our guests to have the full resort experience.

Great location and accessibility. Beautiful grounds and great staff. Fillipe and the young lady with him were pleasant. The young lady was not prepared to help during the docking in terms of managing the lines tossed to her and securing them. In addition, we were placed on a T wherein the boat in front of us had to be moved by staff to barely accomodate our vessel. The boat's owner was PO'd when he returned and he re-tied his boat. Location and facility=5, competent dock staff=3, total=4. The good news is both the above issues can be easily fixed by investing in staff training...this is a management issue. We will be back. Thank you.

We always enjoy staying here. It is secluded, off the beaten path, yet many things are right there. In a residential area overlooking the bay, quite charming. We've been here twice this year making it our base for summer cruising up the Chesapeake bay. Marina has fixed docks so larger fenders are recommended, power pedestals are newer which is nice, and facilities are clean. They have a mobile pump out boat which is a nice convenience. The Harbor is protected and has easy access. Beach area is great and well maintained, Ketch 22 is a fantastic spot for lunch or dinner, deli across the street has everything you may need, overall, phenomenal stay!!

To be fair, this is a pet owner's review. The Marina staff were great and did all that would be expected of them. On arrival, I proceeded to the "Ketch" restarant for lunch. I asked a waitress (should I say server person?) If it would be OK for me to sit at the outdoor bar for lunch with my two dogs (each 20 pounders), the server said it would "no problem". Halfway through my lunch, another server looking person approached me to tell me only "service dogs" were allowed in the restaraunt. I informed her/him that I had been told by a server it would be OK for me to sit at the bar. He/She said I must leave. Had I not been so tired from my boat trip I probably would have made a "scene". Instead, I pushed my have eaten plated to her/him and requested my check.
In the over 5000 miles of traveling on my boat this is the 1st time this has happened to me. I AWAYS ASK IF MY DOGS ARE OK
Hi bythewoods, It's great to hear that our marina staff was able to get you docked and settled in for your visit.

Top notch resort style marina. We stayed on the beach dock and it was so lovely. We thought it might not be protected enough but with the breakwater it was fine. We were right on the beach, perfect view and great for letting our chocolate lab off to walk/go potty. They have fireworks after the weddings and we had front row seats! Ketch 22 is a great restaurant and the deli is perfect for breakfast. The Bathhouse was clean, although a little small in the shower. We will be back for sure! Best part was the helpful dock hand Philippe who also gave me a ride to my Open House up the street and picked me up!

The grounds are spectacular. The gardens and landscaping around the entire marina is stunning. It’s a huge marina with 600 slips. The fairways between the docks are narrow, pulling in and out of our assigned slip we had around 5-6 feet more than the length of our boat so it was certainly tense getting in and out. The pool was extremely extremely crowded, in the afternoon there was not a single lounge available. In addition to slip holders and transients they sell pool memberships so it ends up uncomfortably packed with bodies. This was the major drawback. Don’t go expecting a relaxing day at the pool because it isn’t going to happen!
Hi jlw207, We are thrilled to hear you enjoyed spending time at the marina. Have a wonderful day!

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.
Hi lorenroos, We always strive to deliver an experience that exceeds your expectations and are happy that we were able to speak with you by phone. Sometimes overnight dock reservation layouts change at the last minute due to cancellations, inclement weather and boat size changes. It's our hope that you will give us a chance to better serve you in the future.

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.
Hi charlesjlove, Thank you for taking the time to provide your feedback. It sounds like we might need to expand the kitchen at the deli. LOL They are very popular.

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.

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.

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.

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 Gary S. 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.

Great stay at Herrington harbor south.

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!

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

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.

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!

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!

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]

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!

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.

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.

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 jackiebell, We are so happy to hear that we were a stop on your trip. Thank you for your review. ☺️

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!

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

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.

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!

Hi mstickle66, Thank you for taking the time to give us 5 stars! 👍
by Ellen W. - Verified user 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!

Herrington Harbour South is just the best resort marina on the bay. We live going there.
by Dave M. 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!

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.

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 Dan L. 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.

Great pool and restaurant and bar
by Roger C. 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 Jeffrey S. 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 Stephen V. 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.

Beautiful Resort. Great accommodations. Helpful Friendly Staff. One of our favorite spots to go.
by Mike - Verified user 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 Orlando D. 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 Deginal B. 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

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.

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.

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 Rita B. 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.

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 Robert F. 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.

Great stay. Wonderful dock hand (Joey). All staff was most pleasant and helpful. Beautiful pool.

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.

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!

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.

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.

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.
