A true gem of a marina in a lovely setting on the north shore of the York, just across the bridge from Yorktown. Beautiful facilities, docks, pool, and showers. New laundry facility being installed while we were there indicates continuing investment. On-site bar / restaurant is really good. Absolutely fabulous staff made us feel welcome.

Really nice place. Pool was awesome, especially since it got so hot. Staff met us to assist with docking. Office staff was very friendly and helpful, especially offering to take ice to the pool and boat. Two things: Wish there was a closer bathroom. We were on I dock. They were adding a bathroom that was supposed to be ready while we were there but wasn't. Will not deter us from returning knowing there will be a completed bathroom. Second, maybe staff could add extra hooks in the men's bathroom by the sinks. Once end does have hooks to hang bags and towels but the other end by the paper towel holder doesn't have any. Highly recommend pulling in if you are in the area. Restaurant has really good food. Will give 5 star next time when bathroom is complete.

Our stay was fantastic! The pool, the restaurant, floating docks , amazingly clean restrooms on a holiday week!!! Dockwa made it so easy! The laundry facilities were down because of remodeling. Otherwise would give 5 star!!! We will stay again fore sure!

Staff is amazing. Everyone is incredibly friendly and were helpful. Be careful with strong south westerlies as docks A, B and C are exposed. We rarely need help coming or going but needed help getting off B dock with 10-15 SW. Asked for and quickly received line handlers so A+ to them. Note to other cruisers- call the marina and ask if the laundry renovation is complete if you need laundry. We came here needing to do laundry but it’s closed so had to hand wash our clothing. Showers were clean. A HUGE plus is the onsite restaurant. Excellent food at good prices. Overall we felt we got a good value here.

Very nice setup with helpful personnel. Surprisingly good restaurant on site. Good clean showers. Only thing not available was the laundry as they are upgrading facility and equipment

Highly recommend this marina. We originally scheduled to be at York River Yacht Haven for 2.5 weeks and ended up staying a little over a month, due in part to Hurricane/Tropical-storm Ida and a boat issue. Those unexpected events turned out to be a blessing. This was a great and safe haven to be at. Lisa, the Dock Master, and her team were friendly, understanding, and flexible to work with; they made us feel like we’re home versus being transients. Eddy and his maintenance team were friendly and hardworking; they kept the bathrooms and pool clean everyday. They didn’t miss a beat even through the Labor Day weekend. Speaking of the pool, it is one of the best marina pools we have encountered thus far. Besides being clean, it’s large and with plenty of tables, seats, loungers, and fully functioning umbrellas. YRYH is definitely on our list to stay again if we return to this area next year and the future.

Not a bad experience, we were caught in a storm and had to seek shelter, forgot to cancel slip. Messaged marina after explained problem but have never heard back from them. Was charged full price.

This is like a second home. Wonderful people, great place.

NIce Well kept Marina. the Store is basically a west marine, which couldn't be more convenient for anything from boat parts and clothing. the docks are in good shape. the Restaurant was very good, and they had a band playing by the outside bar. The only thing i thought was kinda of odd, was that they had no trash cans anywhere, you have to walk across the parking lot to throw out trash in the dumpster, and that isn't a huge deal but i believe that just leads to people littering.

Great hospitality from the marina staff. Very attentive and helpful.

The dockage is excellent, with very nice surroundings but the men”s restrooms should be refurbished. Right place for visiting Yorktown.

by Mark L. - Verified user on Jun 06, 2018
Great location. Outstanding service provided by a team of professionals. Only negative was the material condition and cleanliness of the men's restroom.
Marina Response:
Thank you for your review and comments. We are happy to let you know that in the next month the Men’s shower and restroom will be undergoing a full renovation! Thank you again for your comment. Happy Boating!
