Great experience. Much quieter than the marina directly in town and still an easy and lovely walk to town. Staff were a delight to work with, professional, and attentive. The facilities and amenities were one of the best (and cleanest) we’ve seen so far. Way to go!

Hawthorne Cove was great. Dock hands were helpful; facilities were nice and the internet actually worked! Close to town. Will return.

Lousy! Harbormaster put us on the furthest away buoy saying there were no others and all day long we saw their buoys going unoccupied. The no wake zone is non-existent so the further out you are the rougher it is. When we went ashore the harbormaster directed us to the wrong dinghy dock where we proceeded to get yelled at for docking there. The waterfront is pretty disjointed and after spending a few hours ashore decided to head out for another location. It will not be on our 'Places to return to" list.

Marina Response:
I am so sorry you had that experience. Our outer harbor moorings are for vessels over 35'power /40'sail generally and yes are not the most pleasant place in bad weather I am sorry the crew did not mention that to you. We had 2 regattas in the harbor and the Harbormaster crew was spread pretty thin but that is no excuse. Moorings in Marblehead harbor are permitted to individual, privately owned boats so if you saw empty moorings they are not under our control. All inner harbor moorings were booked for the entire weekend. We appreciate your feed back and use it to constantly improve our facility. Again, my apologies on behalf of the harbormaster crew for any miscommunication. Please give us another chance and email me through dockwa...Terri, office Manager

Great stay. Town dock is brand new. No water or power, yet; but the location to town and the friendliness of the dock workers more than made up for it. It does get shallow at low tide so if you draw more than four feet, be careful. One of the nicest harbors of our five week trip!

Good staff. Great facilities. Construction work was a bit noisy at times, but other than that a great stay.
