Safe Harbor's Brewer Oxford Marina is one of the best stops in the middle Chesapeake/Choptank River you'll find. There facilities are excellent, with gorgeous bath houses, a beautiful lounge area, well maintained docks, and a very helpful staff. Fuel and pump outs are available and very convenient to access. Located in the protected waters of Town Creek, off the Tred Avon river, transients can enjoy a peaceful nights sleep with minimal rocking and rolling due to weather and passing boats. The pool is delightful, and many excellent restaurants are within an easy walk into town. The marina also has a fleet of excellent bikes that can be rented hourly or by the day. The only knock on this marina is the cancellation policy of 72 hours, which is considerably longer than most stops on the bay.
We have been talking about coming here for years and seem to go everywhere else in the area but Oxford. Finally made it on July 7&8 with three other boats in our group. We absolutely loved the town of Oxford. This marina is in a perfect location and is well maintained. We stayed at the boatyard side which we liked as it was quieter on Sat night. The amenities which are mostly on the other side including fabulous bathrooms and pool and gas grills were nice and only a very short walk. Could use more bathrooms as there was a line Sat night. When the boatyard work resumed Mon morning it was loud and I'm not sure I would enjoy this side during the week but we were leaving anyway. Capsize restaurant and the famous ice cream store are right there. We biked and walked all over town and truly enjoyed it. Plan to come back in August for another weekend. My husband says it's now his favorite marina and price is very reasonable too.
We enjoyed our stay at the Oxford Marina and Boat Yard. We were disappointed that there is no longer a complimentary continental breakfast available. Additionally, there was no water on "G" dock which was a great inconvenience to a couple we were traveling with. Seems not much was being done to correct the problem as the line broke on Friday and still no water on Sunday. We will definitely stay at this marina in the future.
Very good staff, nice new shower/restroom/clubhouse.
It's a good location for boating but it's a hike to any of the amenities, particularly in the summer heat and humidity. There are few Uber or taxi options. Although Pope's Inn will pick up and return diners if time permits.
My wife and I have cruised all over the Chesapeake Bay and Delmarva peninsula visiting numerous marina. The Oxford marina which we recently visited was by far and away one of the best. Their showers, restrooms, lounge area are unequaled anywhere. Their staff are helpful, courteous, friendly and professional. And its location is most pleasant. Call my waters. Great small town. Good local restaurants. And close to so many other boating destinations. We will definitely be back!
What an excellent visit. We spent two nights (July 5and 6) and could not have been more pleased with our experience. The facilities are first rate--as good as any we've found on the Chesapeake Bay. And the harbor master and his crew were not only helpful they were pleasant and cordial. Just an excellent experience. Thank you.
We stayed a very pleasant 2 nights at Brewers over the 4th of July in the midst of a miserable heatwave. For that reason, nearly all our time in Oxford was spent in or near the pool. The Pool, Clubhouse and Marina bathhouse are first class. The marina staff are very helpful and even gave us a ride to the market which we would likely have walked to in more comfortable temps. On the downside, Brewers docks are separated and transients are usually on the Boatyard docks, which are a short walk from the upgraded marina facilities. The boatyard bathhouse is not even a close second compared to the marina side, which is unfortunate when its 100 degrees so you are sweaty again by the time you get back to the boat. There is a great restaurant (Capsize) and Ice Cream (Highland Creamery) that are on the Boatyard side, so there are advantages to that side as well. In less brutal heat, these observations wouldn't be of much concern. Brewers was a very nice experience and we won't hesitate to visit again and will recommend to anyone looking to visit Oxford.
Arrived after hrs but staff communicated codes, etc to me. Very helpful at departure. Service dock crew did a good job helping singlehander tie up new-to-me 36 foot boat. Will def come back.
Radioed the fuel dock and got a prompt response. Had 3 dock hands to help us tie up. One very professional young woman stood out, Katie. She was sweet and knowledgable, helped us fuel up, pump out and delivered ice to the boat. Refreshing to see friendly smiling faces that know how to handle all sizes of boats. We will definitely return. Thanks Katie!
We were presently surprised. Wes and two pleasant dock hands were excellent in taking care of our arrival needs. Their new relax and comfort rooms are classy hotel quality. For sure, the port of Oxford is now a new destination regular for us.
Our 5 year old had an accident (everything ended up being ok :) leaving Trippe Creek and we needed to find a marina and get to the hospital in Easton. I called Brewers and Jeff was so sweet and helpful. He immediately got us a slip, was there to help us dock and make sure we were OK. He brought ice for my daughter's arm and even had Annie (who is awesome and always has a smile) drive us to Easton AND pick us up several hours later. I can't say enough about how kind and professional everyone was. Yes the bathhouse is AWESOME and the pool view is one of the best on the Bay, but it was the staff who made it truly 5 star. Thanks Brewers!!! We will be back. MS
Nicest bathrooms and showers I’ve ever seen. Not kidding. Good pool and picnic areas with grills. Friendly staff. Close to a good restaurant and excellent ice cream.
Very nice marina, great facilities and very friendly and helpful staff. Nice relaxed atmosphere and very clean. Highly recommended!
Lovely marina. Great staff. Doesn’t get any better
Perfect spot. Marina has great charm along with super club room and top notch bathrooms and showers. Service was good too. Plus there's a boatyard right next store under the same mgmt.
Not cheap but worth it.
Nice staff and a great location. Also some of the best bathrooms on the bay!
Great place to stay and the staff was just wonderful. Bath house is like a 5 star hotel bathroom. We will be back soon.
We came to Oxford 10/7, after dragging anchor on a 20+ knot windy evening in San Domingo Creek 10. We called some marinas in Oxford, but they were all closed. I saw a t-head open and tied there for the night, We checked in using dockwa that evening and the next morning we checked in with the dock-master. The docks are a little dated and could use a few new boards. Always a pleasant stay. Bath house and showers are first class. Additional bathrooms and showers are attached to the fuel dock next to the pool. There is also a club room with large flat screen, that I did not take advantage of. This marina is across the street from the Strand where awesome sunsets are viewed. The dock master and dock hands are great, always helpful and pleasant. Oxford is a favorite stop for us coming from Solomon's, Md. There are marina sponsored activities several times during the summer. The marina is pet friendly.
This past trip 10/27-10/28 we biked to the community center to watch the midnight play Rocky Horror Picture Show.
We replaced our 35 pound scoop anchor for our 40' sailboat with a 66 pound Bruce. Wife said no more anchor dragging.
Once again, very pleasant stay at one of our favorite marinas on the Bay. Everything from making reservations on Dockwa to accommodating the dockage we wanted next to our cruising companions, and help docking worked out perfectly. Beautiful new showers, restrooms and social lounge are icing on the cake. Also, great area to walk the dogs! Our thanks to everyone from Graham to Jeff and Jay for making the whole experience a perfect one.
Enjoyed 3 days in Oxford. Marina and boatyard were spotless. Dockhands and Samantha most professional and friendly. Jeff was very helpful to all our needs. The boathouse and shower facilities were the most luxurious I have seen . Like being in your own bathroom, only cleaner and larger. I would have loved to use their grills and outdoor pool but the restaurants in town were too good. Rent a bike and cycle to St. Michaels!
jeff and staff were excellent. bath house is the best on the bay. captain wayne irishwake marine service.
Very helpful staff. Fabulous laundry and bathroom facilities that were Spotless, modern and roomy. Spa-like environment.
Great staff, super new clubhouse with the best bath/shower rooms on the Bay. Oxford is one of the nicest towns on the Chesapeake - quaint town, good restaurants, beautiful views!
HAd a warm welcome from Chris who helped us with the lines, etc. He went to the office to get our info pack, we did not even have to visit the office whicj was convenient. He told us about the Restaurant CAPSIZE which was nice. Location is great...we just need to spend more than 1 night in Oxford. We will be back
Very nice, and helpful staff. The bathrooms and showers are modern and well maintained.
Clean, nice Facilities, helpful dockhands, quiet, beautiful short walk to the yacht club and the Robert Morris Inn. Will stay here again when visiting Oxford!
Great marina. We stayed for two nights in August. Nice accommodations and very friendly staff. I'd visit again- very reasonable rates!!
This marina is a very nice place to stay! Quiet and calm. We can actually see water on other side from our dock. Nice walk around town. The beach is a short walk to hang out. The new restaurant Capsize, was very good. It even had doggie menu! Then the ice creamery was awesome. Anyway, the ,Ariana has beautiful facilities! Bathroom was my favorite! Feeling so luxury. It even has a tv room! Thank you for a wonderful service too!
Wonderful new facilities, very helpful staff, nice picnic area and air conditioned meeting room. We will be back!
Brewer Oxford Marina is our favorite place on Chesapeake, that we visit several times a year. It has a beautiful layout, with the swimming pool and covered patio both with the view of the river, airconditioned club house, and other advantages over other marinas we have visited. The marina's staff is extremely helpful, friendly and provides top service. Recommend to everyone who is boating on the bay. SE
Clean, accommodating, friendly, marina with professional staff. Easy access to fuel and pump out docks. Very nice picnic area. Lovely restrooms, showers, lounge completely remodeled and well kept. Great location in Oxford MD to walk around, to the beach, restaurants, etc. Lovely town. Enjoy every visit.
Great marina. Looking forward to another visit.
Only issue was a breaker on the power pole.
Loved seeing The skipjacks getting ready to race.
Bathhouses were amazing! I loved how clean and nice they were and that each shower facility was private. And that there were a lot of washers/driers. The lounge area was very nice. The pool was very clean and refreshing. Staff was helpful
Pool and very nice restrooms. Friendly staff. Good restaurant within 5 min walk.
Great spot, friendly and helpful staff, and great bathhouse/lounge. We'll be back!
The new facilities are excellent
Thoroughly enjoyed the marina and its many amenities!! The new( to us) lounge and rest rooms were beautiful and very user friendly! The staff was knowledgable , gracious , and helpful!! We'll look forward to returning to this lovely facility in the quiet town that we so enjoy!
Very nice marina, nice facilities. We will return and spend more time there.
Quiet and close to everything we wanted to do. Ryan did a great job at helping us with shore power concerns. Very friendly crew. We will be back.
We have stayed at Brewers many times, and it is our favorite marina on the Chesapeake. The staff is friendly and helpful, the wifi actually works and the pool is a refreshing treat after a long day on the water. The new bathhouse, lounge and laundry facility are amazing. It is a close walk to town, or there are grills and picnic tables to use. I highly recommend a visit - and the Highland Creamery is within an easy walking distance!
The staff was friendly and accommodating. The location is excellent, and the Club room and bathhouse is exceptional. The gas dock is easy to get in and out of quickly. The pool is a nice amenity, as is the picnic and grilling area!
Delightful experience from beginning to end. We were there during the scorching hot July 4th weekend which meant a lot of lounging by the pool (great view of incoming boats). There is a new, beautiful structure which includes bath rooms and a common room. The bath rooms are worthy of a 5 star hotel - roomy, clean, luxurious. The common room is elegant, spacious with gorgeous views, comfortable furniture and flat screen. There are bikes for rent to explore Oxford. But the best part is the staff. Friendly, courteous, efficient, accommodating. From the manager to the dock staff - everyone was so nice! I hope to see all of them when we return in the Fall.
Great facility, with outstanding customer-service. Continental breakfast is served in the morning, heads are super cleaning, pool is well-kept, and they have bicycles to loan. Very friendly staff, can't wrong staying here.
Marvelous marina - everything you'd want. From reservations to docking to accommodations to general condition of the facility - looking forward to returning. Zach, the fuel dock attendant was especially courteous & helpful - DWA
Wasn't aware that Mears was under new ownership and management. Had a hard time trying to make a reservation, since now everything has to go through Dockwa. So, just showed up and hoped they would have space. Pleasantly surprised by staff and new, improved facilities. Actually, new bath house was almost too opulent, but we can't complain. Very clean, comfortable and a welcome place to hang out during two days of rain. Everything was great, except reservation system. Why can't they just take a phone call?
