Sommerset Pointe was an enjoyable stop for us on our Great Loop trip. We had a slip in the calm harbor with a great view of Lake Charlevoix. Peter was very helpful in getting us settled & acquainted with the area. We enjoyed a fine dinner at the club restaurant. The pool was a refresher on a warm day. Sommerset Pointe is a easy bike or dinghy ride to Boyne City where we enjoyed good restaurants, fun shopping & a fine organic food store.
Safe Harbor Toledo Beach has an excellent fuel dock staffed with helpful staff and a good restaurant with a lively vibe. We enjoyed a very good band over the 4th of July weekend. It’s a large Marina. Unlike most marinas, there is no assistance in getting into your slip which is very helpful to transients. The laundry equipment is well past it’s prime and should be replaced. The pool is described as heated but I think the sun must be the only source!
Nice calm setting in a condominium community. Dockmaster Steve is beyond helpful and accommodating. The marina is a little short on amenities…. No laundry, no fuel, no easy access to restaurants, laundromats & groceries without a hike although Steve offers assistance in all those instances. Don’t be fooled by the pictures showing a pool. It is not owned by the marina & you will not be swimming in it!
Great location and staff! We appreciated being able to access both Jersey City, which surprised us with its cool factor, and Manhattan, by way of the ultra convenient & cheap Liberty Landing Ferry. The marina has nice floating docks, a superior fuel dock, well stocked ship’s store and comforting security. The area is adjacent to Liberty Landing State Park for a lovely walk and photo op for Big Apple views & Statue of Liberty. The only disappointment lies in the statement that there are 2 restaurants in site. True, but not open 😟
The Homer Smith Marina docks are the best docks we’ve seen on our 3,000+ trip. The Marina raves about them on their website, deservedly so. Free laundry, 2 loaner cars available even during COVID, location a short walk from the lively town center & nice owner. The only aspect missing that we would have appreciated would have been a dockhand to assist in windy conditions upon arrival.
The staff was very Accommodating And friendly
Nice facility. The transient dock is clean & in very good condition. We had dinner at the marina restaurant. The food was good but not great. On a Sunday, our only real contact was Bryant at the gas dock. He was helpful & pleasant.
The Paducah transient dock is a really nice, newer facility with floating docks, gas & diesel & pump-out services. The best part, however, are the city employees who greet you & assist in getting you tied up & settled in. This is not a marina with further services but serves as a top-notch stop & gateway to a charming city.
