We cannot say enough good things about Frank, the dockmaster. He was awesome. Laundry & bathrooms were older, but functional and cleaned every day. Secured entry & nighttime security. Access to downtown restaurants, shopping & the Pier could not be easier. St. Pete is very walkable & has dedicated bike lanes. Publix, CVS & a liquor store are a 10 minute walk from the marina. Great stop for the money!
This is a beautiful hidden gem on the Chesapeake. We would recommend the marina as a stop over. Dockmaster Craig was a great help with our lines, getting us settled and providing information on the walkable town. The docks are new and in great shape, electric was excellent and three separate baths with their own entry code-very new and clean. The town has alot of history and several great little shops and restaurants. We rode our bikes on beautiful country roads 2.5 miles to a Super Walmart to fill a prescription. This was one of our favorite stops this year from the Bahamas up to Boston!
This marina is SO worth the 15 miles up the Rappahannock River! Wonderful newer docks, excellent electric, very clean bathrooms. Andy and Amy are so friendly & helpful. Great restaurant on site & nifty little town with shops, post office, grocery & liquor stores all within 10 minute walk. If you want a serene, friendly rural stop in your cruising itinerary, Urbanna is it!! We will return someday...
This marina is upriver from the other marinas, tucked into a beautiful, peaceful cove, away from wakes. Baths and laundry facilities are very good, and the ships store is great! Very cute, quiet park setting, and easy bike ride to restaurants, hardware, grocery, pharmacy and liquor stores. The staff is very helpful and friendly.....a wonderful stop. We enjoyed it in the summer and returned on our way back south from Boston!
We LOVED this marina! Great docks, power, baths and laundry facilities, all in a gorgeous resort setting. On site restaurant was also great, and complimentary shuttle into nearby town for provisions. We would highly recommend making this a stop over in a wonderful rural area!
This marina was an awesome place to stop for several days. Even though it is large, it was laid out well. Beautiful pool area, gated, large and clean bathrooms & showers. Restaurants within a very short walking distance, and the biking/walking trail nearby is incredible-it takes you for several miles through the woods and over the marshes on wonderfully wide and well maintained boardwalks. Power, water & docks all in great shape. We would highly recommend this marina to other boaters...definitely a great stop!
We stayed here for several nights on our way to Boston in July, and decided to return on our trip back to the Chesapeake. The marina is right next to the very cute and quaint downtown. This is a hidden gem at the end of the channel, so no wakes. The docks are in great shape, the area has beautiful landscaping, showers are close by and very clean. Dock hands are very friendly and helpful. This marina is now one of our favorites, from Sarasota, FL to Boston, MA.
