As always the hospitality here is outstanding! Carl, you always treat us like family….thanks again for accommodating all our needs! A great place to go, I highly recommend visiting!

Our time on the dock was great. Karl and the whole dock crew is always attentive, and accommodating,, which is why we visit so often. I regret that the rest of the marina accommodations and amenities are failing at a rapid pace. The attitudes lead me to believe they care very little about the transient visitors that bring so much added economy to the on-site restaurant and bar. they've closed the pool area showers, to accommodate a few tables at the restaurant and a lousy attempt at transitioning the pool into a koi pond. We were onsite for four days and did not see ONE PARTY DINING AT THE POOL, leaving us puzzled. Closing of the men's & woman's showers at the pool area leaves ONE SHOWER in the public restroom (That needs to be kept cleaner) for ALL VISITORS. they do offer a trailer on the side of the property that has a unisex shower but it looks like a prison shower or something from a horror movie. Needless to say none of the woman accompanying us with would use it. To make matters worse a visitor took it upon herself to lock the public ladies room one morning while she was showering and my wife had to wait an hour for her to leave. LOCKING THE PUBLIC RESTROOM???? for hundreds of boats?? We understand we need to adapt to a changing world with the current covid restrictions, but it seems CAM has little to no regard for transient visitor accommodations and it's gotten worse as they've tried to adapt. we may wait awhile before we visit again in hopes of the Marina getting their act together. .. but do again want to stress the Dock crew and assistance on the water is 'TOP SHELF'!

Nice facility, beautiful location, excellent service, will return!

Perfect. As always. Karl and his team on the docks were amazing. Dinner at Mile Marker 1 was underwhelming though. Food not so great.

Great place to visit and stay, Karl the dockmaster is always great to deal with and we were well accommodated for our 2 night stay. The resort environment was clean and well staffed, only a short walk to downtown and the restaurant was great for dining and watching the hustle and bustle of the very active marina. Fuel and pump out dock staff were also very friendly and helpful. Great stop that is well protected and easy to navigate. Can’t wait to visit again!

Excellent staff and service

Wish I could give 1/2 star! I would rate this marina 4 1/2. Excellent location.Dock in very good condition and staff were welcoming. Heads were clean. Wish they had a pet area, not much green. Easy walk to prominade and about a mile into town.Would recommend and would definitely stay again.

by 1jasonv1 on Jul 18, 2021

Karl and the team were excellent !

by ekszycnkkxzoa2mhhqly on Jun 20, 2021
Dock crew professional and courteous. Fun place for couple days. Restaurant just so so. But to give them credit they were just starting up as many are this time of year.

Chris the dock master is a great help to visiting boaters.

The employees of the marina were great. Loved the time spend and would return again.
Marina Response:
Thank you for the five star review! We appreciate your feedback and can't wait to see you again.

by bfischer on Aug 22, 2020
Carl the DM is awesome. Great location. Only issue us getting reservations at the restaurant.
Marina Response:
Thank you for your five star review! We are glad you enjoyed your experience with us was. Mile Marker One restaurant has had to limit the seating due to COVID-19, which becomes challenging to keep up with our normal seasonal demand for diners. MM1 had to shift to online reservations only this year due to the demand and they way it has to operate. Sorry for the inconvenience, we look forward to your next visit soon and we always say to book early for both your boat and if you choose to dine or stay in the hotel with us.

The dock master was very helpful and the marina and bathrooms were well taken care of. However, the Beacon Wi-Fi is horrible because even if it works, which is doubtful, it’s incredibly slow. The marinas in Newburyport finally got rid of Beacon and got OnSpot which works great.
Marina Response:
Thank you for the review, your feedback is appreciated on your experience with us. We are aware of our week Wi-Fi and an upgrade is in process with Beacon and our internet provider. Beacon has been great to work with, we have a diverse property where a lot of guests, boaters and users can be here all at one time and it does bog down our current systems. We hope to have the upgrade in place in the near future and look forward to seeing you again soon.

by boater71 on Jul 27, 2020
We called harbor master and he was responsive. initially added us for the wait-list and mentioned he will call back later, which he did and gave us a slip. When we arrived, the staff were great, they answered all our questions, responded to our arrival radio check and provided all the info we needed. they were all wearing masks which was really great and appreciated. We will visit again.
Marina Response:
Thank you for the five star review! We are glad Karl was able to accommodate you off the wait-list...it is like playing Tetrus with departures, arrivals and weather of course. Safety is the name of the game this year, so we appreciate the feedback that you felt safe upon your arrival and during your stay. We hope that this pandemic disappears and we can catch your lines without a mask soon.

by lcavalla on Jul 25, 2020
Kudos 2 Karl & Neil 4 our perfect arrival. Marina looks beautiful & slip location was really great 4 our 2 boats. We appreciate these gents & ur team 4 keeping the marina well run & safe. Cheers! Tutto Bene & Royal Flush
Marina Response:
Thank you for the five star review! We will surely pass on the "kudos" to Karl and Neil. We are lucky to have a solid team here that take great pride in the property and also in serving our boaters and guests. Always great to see Tutto Bene and Royal Flush...we'll see you again soon.

by leveralone on Jul 19, 2020
Dock master was able to accommodate all our boats in one area . Food was good at mile marker bar, short walk to causeway restaurant for lunch , and a short boat ride to wingersheek beach.
Marina Response:
Thank you for the five star review! We love getting such good feedback on your experience with our Dockmaster Karl, as well as our restaurant Mile Marker One. We do our best to accommodate all group requests, and enjoy seeing many faces come back several times in season or year to year. Hope you visit again soon.

Karl the Dockmaster went above and beyond for us. The weekend here felt like a mini vacation. We will absolutely be back.

by jimtass on Aug 21, 2019
We had a very nice time staying at the resort. The enclosed pool and Jacuzzi were very fun.

by sweetsuzie on Aug 11, 2019
We loved our stay but in the morning we had to high tail it out when we weren’t ready because the boat next to us wanted to go out and couldn’t clear us. Wish they had more room in spots

Great stay except for the weather.
Marina Response:
We are glad you had a nice visit. Sorry we can't control the weather, but we hope you were still able to take advantage of our indoor pool and pool bar. Or live music and Rum Shack on our Bridge Deck when the boating was not ideal. We look forward to your return.

Welcoming and helpful. Mud flats at low tide restrict maneuverability. Good restaurant in hotel. Out door music played until 2300.
