Dockmaster, Craig Tanner, is the best! Delightful overnight, as always.
What a lovely experience at Urbanna Town Marina! We live across the Rappahannock River from Urbanna and took friends to Urbanna for lunch. We called as we approached the marina to ask if they had a T-head on which we might tie up for several hours. The dockmaster immediately invited us in and said that he would be down directly to assist with lines. The tie up is free under many circumstances, the facilities attractive and well-maintained, and the dockmaster and his assistant (wife?) lovely and helpful. We couldn't have had a nicer experience. AND he complimented our new boat!
An excellent experience. The dockhands were responsive, pleasant, and competent. We did a pump out upon arrival and then tied up. The location is wonderful: downtown with the marvelous "Stripers" restaurant adjacent to the dock. The docks are newer and the facility sparkling. We couldn't have asked for more.
We spent several days at the Smithfield Station marina. As always, it was a wonderful experience. This was our third visit there, and we have visited in three different boats. The marina staff is both friendly and competent. The dockmaster was at hand quickly to assist with our arrival at the dock and ready to provide information about their expansive facilities and the beautiful historic town of Smithfield, which is a short walk away. Everyone with whom we had reason to interact was warm, friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. The restaurant is immediately adjacent to the marina and offered both indoor and outdoor dining options. We chose to sit outdoors on a lovely porch at a covered table with fans nearby. All staff were masked and attentive. We had intended a one-day stay, but storms blew in, and we stayed over. We enjoyed every minute!
Delightful marina with helpful, friendly staff. We don’t use the bathroom facilities so can’t speak to those. Terrific location within a 2-min stroll of the center of town. Such a charming town, even when just coming out of quarantine.
We are a fuel only stop, as we dock close by. The staff are consistently attentive, skilled at assisting with docking, friendly, and competent. We’ll be there tomorrow morning to fuel up for a trip south! Always a stop for us. Thanks!
These people were WONDERFUL. We arrived after a long day of travel on the rough Hudson in incredibly strong, gusty winds in a 36' boat. They helped us wrestle her safely to the dock and managed other arriving boats similarly well. Nash, on the dock, pointed out to us that our dinghy, mounted on the on the stern of the boat, was not supported properly (a support had broken enroute in the rough waters) and immediately helped us get it fixed. The owner, Nick, took my husband to the local Home Depot to get a part needed for the repair and wouldn't accept payment for the ride. Others who keep their boats regularly at the marina stopped by to offer needed muscle or guidance or encouragement. What a wonderful experience! I highly recommend this marina to transients or to anyone else!
