-Mooring directly off the museum
Dock is extremely convenient to this exceptional Museum of the Herreshoff Brothers spectacular accomplishment and the unique History of the Americas Cup!
-Enjoyed Pricey but delicious Lobster Roll & Chowder at the nearby Lobster Pot restaurant.
-Short walk to cute little town with more restaurants!

Mooring was adequate. There is no launch which is fine, but the dinghy dock is quite exposed. Another dinghy came in and left their engine up (grrrrr) and we had a prop rubbing against us in some pretty good chop. All of Bristol Harbor can get quite a nice fetch in a S wind so plan or be prepared accordingly. They confirmed the reservation on Dockwa very quickly!.
So sorry about the engine, Linda! We ask people to leave their engines down, but we'll try to do a better job of policing it. Thanks for the feedback!

Sunday arrival no one guarding radio or phone circuits. Spontaneously the Harbor Master appeared and led us to mooring. No services. BUT!! Museum is outstanding and very much worth the trip.

Our wedding was perfect. Yhe event coordinator was amazing. Jim, the dockmaster took such great care of us. Halsey Herreshoff is always a perfect host. Thank you Bill Lynn for your vision and dedication to the community providing excellent venue and youth sailing programs, the STEM program. It is a bustling vibrant waterfront, beautiful. Thank you.

Herreshoff Museum and dock was a terrific experience. Along with your dock space you get a free pass to the Museum. The staff were all very nice and helpful. The only reason I don't give it 5 stars is because of Dockwa who gave us the wrong VHF channel for Herreshoff which made our arrival less than smooth. Herreshoff monitors VHF 72 NOT 68 as Dockwa stated.

Great location a bit away from the hustle and bustle of Bristol. We will return!

Found out too late that admission to the museum would have been Included. AMERICAN STAR cruise line was there for one day and their diesel venerator was loud and gave off diesel fumes. Otherwise, it was fine.

Beautiful marina with all the beautiful classic boats. You look at all the vessels and it brings you back in time where everything was so much different. I reserved 3 days with the museum but I only enjoyed 2 since weather was bad. Got to witness a beautiful wedding as well. Staying here made me realize how beautiful and historic Bristol actually is. Will be back soon

We love this location! The Herreshoff museum and grounds are impressive - we learn something new every time we visit. The mooring field is convenient to the harbor, a short walk to town, and we think better protected from the prevailing SW than the harbor, itself. Our only suggestion for improvement is to have staff available to make the mooring assignment, or to advise the guest accordingly when confirming the DockWa request.

My wife and had a great stay at the marina. Kirk was great host and the location was prefect
Will come back soon!

A nice view and quiet location. Mooring map was provided which made finding our mooring easy. About a 0.5 mile dinghy ride to the town dinghy dock.

The staff was super helpful and the location was great.
by Peter T. - Verified user on Aug 01, 2022
Pros: Beautiful harbor, nice town, nice people, museum was okay.
Cons: Cost was out of line at a dollar a foot for an unprotected mooring w/o launch service. Next time, we will stay at one of the moorings in town.

Great Mooring with plenty of swing room and new tackle. 150 yds from dinghy dock. Far enough from busy waterfront restaurants to be quiet but close enough to walk or take dinghy to town dock. If you're looking for facilities this is not the place. it is not a marina or yacht club. It's a museum full of sailing history.
