Parker, the Dockmaster is an absolute pleasure and couldn’t be more helpful. Unique, clean facilities with everything you need just a short (100 ft) ferry boat ride away. Essex is a typical quaint New England town with tourist shops and 2 good restaurants, the infamous Griswold Inn and the Black Seal. I would definitely give the marina 5 stars when they finish upgrading the docks and infrastructure.
Super attentive staff, nice restaurants & best lobster roll next door at Lobster Landing. I would give it 5 stars if the docks were in better shape.
This is by far my favorite Long Island marina including the Long Island Sound and Connecticut. It is resort-like with an excellent restaurant on the premises along with the usual Brewer/Safe Harbor Marina amenities. Bathrooms are fantastic with some having private dressing areas. Beautiful club house makes you feel like you're on vacation in the Caribbean. Greenport is about a 1 mile walk or take the marina's courtesy shuttle. Staff is professional and accommodating. Docks are up to the usual Brewer/Safe Harbor standards. Highly recommended.
Stayed here several times over the years. This is definitely the best Brewer/Safe Harbor Marina on the Long Island Sound. Easy in/out of harbor, friendly, professional and accommodating staff and the facility is well maintained. Boom restaurant on premises is also very good, although I wish it was open for breakfast. Simon's Market has a converted shipping container at the Marina where you can get breakfast, but only on the weekends (it is closed during the week). However, Simon's main store is a short walk being located next to the entrance to the marina. The reason for leaving off one star is that Westbrook itself has little to offer, but Essex is fairly close by.
