Always a wonderful stay. They were so helpful with getting us in this weekend. They were full and moved things around to get us in. So relaxing. Boaters paridise.

A wonderful marina, hidden away on the North Shore. Sailboats need to watch the depth, but we got there with no problem (6 foot keel). Very experienced dockhands, clean showers, and beautiful grounds, with a lovely restaurant. Do book outside transportation ahead of time- we could not find an Uber or car rental for a trip to the nearby winery. We will come back!!

Strong's has everything you could ask for in a marina. Protected harbor, pool, restaurant, quaint town and friendly helpful staff.

We had an okay 2-night stay. The grounds are beautiful and well-maintained. Plenty of nice outdoor lounging spots and lawn games. Nice large pool and deck. Pool is not heated. Staff seemed pleasant & attentive, not that we really had the occasion to ask anything of them. It would have been helpful to have a heads up in advance that all the dock staff is gone by 5pm. They called me via cellphone around 4:15 to give me a slip a assignment, and when I pulled in at 5:15 there was no help around to dock. The docks are not clearly labeled from the water, and having a 5' draft makes this marina not fun to explore at low tide. The midship cleat on the dock was broken and unusable. The bathrooms/showers are located behind the restaurant and seem more popular with the restaurant staff than marina guests. They are sorely in need of update. The showers were cheap plastic stalls and had abundant paint peeling off the ceiling, and an empty beer can in one. The restaurant served mediocre B- food/drink, for which they ambitiously charge A+ prices, but I guess there is a price to pay for convenience. There are a few decent walkable restaurants in town which we enjoyed. Trying to get an Uber/Lyft for a ride to some further options was very challenging as both reported no cars available for most of the time on Fri evening. They nickel & dime you $20 for pumpout, which became moot for us as it was broken during our stay. Overall a decent place, but not quite on par with other marinas at this price point. Seriously guys, clean up those bathrooms. Cheers!

Beautiful property and keeps getting better every time we visit. Owners continue to improve the dockage and the restaurant is 5 star. Friendly and helpful staff makes it a must visit.

We had a lovely 2 night stay at Strong's Water Club. The staff is very helpful and ready to assist in every way. The one thing that needs immediate attention is the restaurant facility. It was a beautiful busy weekend and we were unable to book a reservation in the restaurant. There were lovely picnic tables and it was suggested we get food to go and eat outside the restaurant area. We were happy to do that. However, our $35 to $40 meals being served in a paper box with plastic utensils just does not cut it. The food was good. I suggested they allow us to take a plate the few steps to the picnic table with napkin and real silverware. We were refused. Management does not allow it. We would have been happy to return it all to the bar. We had this same experienced 2 nights in a row. Although the bartender was kind enough (we really liked him) to sneak us some real silverware and napkins. Still paper boxes however. That was very disappointing. Other than that, I would have given you 5 stars. Hope you change your policy.
We a glad to know that you enjoyed your stay at The Water Club. Thanks for the feedback regarding the restaurant. I will bring this to the managers attention at Windamere. We are working on improve upon the "picnic to go" portion of our restaurant. We hope to see you again soon. -Timothy Norton GM

Love this marina, it was our first sailing trip from CT so it is special to us. The staff is always nice and the grounds are great with lots of grass space, Adirondack chairs, fire pits ,and pool. There is a good bar and restaurant, and we enjoy walking to Love lane and Shinn vineyard.

Strong's has grown since I was there about 4 years ago. Nice place. Very clean and neat. Spotless restrooms. Very accommodating and friendly staff.
Thanks Dave- we have invested a lot into the Water Club, this year alone we have upgraded the electrical service, replaced 100's of feet of docks and have built out a spectacular patio and stone wall for the restaurant. We are are so happy that you enjoyed your stay and hope to see you back again soon.

Great location. There is also an excellent restaurant /bar there as well. Few years ago- i hit something in the water and had to get hauled out. I was able to do the work myself but the marina offered free verbal assistance. The whole thing was a normal boating experience and i wouldnt hesitate to go back. In fact, I go there EVERY year. Its dog friendly and an EXTREMELY well protected harbor. Lots of great wineries a bike ride/uber away. See you in about 2 months!!

William- thanks for the kind words. The Water Club team is gearing up for an AMAZING 2021 season. We look forward to seeing you back on the docks as the season heats up. Strong's has taken over the restaurant on site and we have rebranded it "Windamere" here is a link to the website https://www.windamerenofo.com Cheers, Tim Norton GM

5 star marina with very helpful/friendly staff. My family has been coming here for years and have nothing but great things to say about the Water Club. The pool is always clean with a lifeguard on duty and at night catching the sunset with a cocktail is an event that can't be missed.
Thanks for the wonderful review. Our staff works hard to create a delightful experience for our welcomed guests. We look forward to having you back for warm Summer Fun in 2021!

Our 17 year old boat had a lot of problems. Strong's hung in there until every single one was resolved and provided wonderful customer service. Don't know where the negative reviews are coming from, as we are very happy with our results, at a fair price.. so nice. And their facilitates is more like a private Club than a public marina. restaurant, grounds etc etc
Hi Peter- Thanks for the kind review. We are happy to know that your boat issues have been resolved and glad that we could help you. We hope to see you back in 2021.
