We stayed over 2 weeks because of Erie Canal flooding and major debris in Hudson River. The dockmaster Nick is awesome. So helpful as are all the dock staff. The owners are boaters and have addressed every need for other boaters. The restaurant is a foodies place to eat! Owner Brian & Kathy now have a tiki bar of sorts ,The Twisted Prop. Drinks served poolside with plans to expand into serving poolside fare, burgers, dogs, maybe even jerk chicken!! The pool is always clean and cool! The firepit makes for a relaxing evening. As we were transient loopers the liveaboards and locals were so welcoming and friendly. Plan to make a repeat stay at Donovans Shady Harbor. Thank you Donovan Family!
