Our stay was fabulous and checked all the boxes for us! Moorings only in a quintessential Maine lobstering harbor. The Tenants Harbor Boatyard was easy to work with and responsive. They have a big dinghy dock, too. I just loved seeing all the lobster boats moored all over the place. This is a real working waterfront with a small town charm. Definitely worth splashing the dinghy and exploring. Tie up at the Town Dock and head up the street to the Happy Clam and right behind it - The Outback. A really cool time!
A very nice ocean front hotel and restaurant.
Location! Location! Location! Perfect for visiting the Portland, Maine area. A mile and a quarter to the Old Port - easily walkable over the Casco Bay Bridge. Two miles in the opposite direction and you're in Cape Elizabeth - home of the Portland Head Light. The marina is in the heart of Knightville - a neighborhood of So. Portland - with grocery stores, restaurants, cafes, and 2 breweries (one right across the street from the marina!). The Eastern Trail runs right through Knightville for amazing biking, walking, jogging to the Casco Bay side of So. Portland to visit two lighthouses and Fort Preble. Willard Beach is right there, too. Mandi and the staff at South Port Marine are great and very accommodating. The laundry and bathroom facilities are very nice and clean. There are picnic tables and shade trees - all very well groomed and pretty - looking over the marina. A two-thumbs up for us!
Our stay was awesome! What a charming town - we really loved it. The marina staff were very friendly. Being off-season they are staffed on the weekends and not during the weekdays. If you need to pump your head, you'll need to wait until the weekend when staff is there. But during peak season the marina is staffed. I would check with the marina first if you need a hand docking and also to get the local knowledge regarding turning out of the Roanoke Sound to the channel that takes you to the marina. The water can be thin and they can tell you what ATON's to stay to or away from. The town of Manteo and the Roanoke are beautiful! I highly recommend a stay here.
What an excellent mooring! Loved that the painter is in a bin on the top of the mooring buoy. Nice and clean! We stayed for just a night and did not dinghy into town, but it's not far and there are lots of restaurants around.
A really nice marina stay! The basin is lovely; the marina crew very friendly and helpful; and the restaurants good! We did not use a lot of the resort's amenities as we had other plans for Hilton Head while we were there. The bike paths are absolutely lovely! My favorite part!
Enjoyed our stay - only one night tho' as we're on the move right now. Received a very warm welcome from the marina owner, Tom, and a nice tour of the marina's facilities. All very well taken care of! A great restaurant right on property - Lady's Island Dockside. Super delish & the price was really reasonable. Lots of good eating options nearby without having to go into downtown Beaufort. The Lady's Island Marina giftshop was amazing and the ladies running the show fabulous! I never buy gift shop items but 90% of their goods are made by local artisans - from foods to decor - all lovely and worth the visit! Next time we will stay longer as the Beaufort and it's surrounding areas are full of wonderful things to explore.
Stayed for a few days. The online ease of making reservations was great. The staff at the marina super nice and accommodating. The docks are fixed - not a problem for us. There is a dog park and city park right next door on the water which was really nice to walk through. Lot's of folks choose this location to live aboard due to all the conveniences and price point.
