For the Cruising Yachtsman, Townsend Manor has one of the finest marinas in Eastern Long Island. Nestled in the protected waters of the secluded Stirling Basin, yet just a short walk from Greenport's stores and activities, are deep water slips for transient yachts up to 60 feet and complete resort facilities for living aboard or ashore.
Great safe and convenient dockage ... easy 1/2 mile walk to downtown and waterside area. The slip pilings are a bit tight to align into, but with the little current nor wind this far inside the harbor, a slow approach makes it OK to enter safely.
We arrived at 3:30 PM. The marina was deserted and no one answered our Channel 9 hail. We contacted the attached hotel and were informed that the staff had left. We asked the hotel clerk what slip we were assigned. She didn’t know but she would call us back. We motored around the area for an hour waiting to hear from her. After an hour, we called her back and were informed that we could take any empty slip. It is míos Sept 10 and have not seen anyone at the marina who cares if we’ve arrived safely or had any questions.
We had a great time! Clean, friendly & fun!
We have been keeping our whaler at Townsend for five years now. All the amenities you would need & the owner is great! He helps out with everything! Plus the new docks & dock house looks great. Highly recommend!!
Loved being at Townsend. Everyone was so friendly. Can’t wait to get back
The dock master does not exist. The owner is a inhospitable person whose anxious about his business and treats customers like he’s doing them a favor. My new boat has a 14 ft. 7” beam and requires a slip that is appropriate to its size. He’s by his actions anti-sailboat. Windage takes boats too and fro. If you don’t have bow and rear thrusters your in trouble with any wind. The dock staff work yesterdays bankers hours. So, they are not available at 7 AM when I came to the dock the second time to get in. Scott the owner is an awful manager and leader. He’s trying to keep himself afloat by taking on three or four jobs himself. And in this time it’s almost understandable but he’s not honest with himself or his customers. He did not come to the phone or even call me back the day before I arrived when I was going to explain my situation with the large beam of my new boat. I asked for the dockmaster. He’s the dockmaster too as well as the restaurant manager and who knows what else. I have empathy for anyone who is trying just to survive this awful time. All they have to do is apologize and to try to make things right. But like a child who is confronted with his mistakes he’s not mature enough to admit his failings and to ask for and to provide an alternative to a bad situation and mistakes he’s made. Dockwa must provide oversight and testing of their vendors many are good some exceed expectations. But in this case your lucky if you get poor service.
Great location. Private setting. 8 minute walk to town. Marina has pool. Laundry room needs to be upgraded to modern washing and drying machines. Rest rooms are average. Showers are average but clean. Rest rooms and showers need updating. Hand dryers in men’s room do not blow air forcefully. Need a propane grill on the grounds. Fortunately we have our own but charcoal grills are not useful as the only means to grill.
Townsend Manor Inn & Marina is truly the goto marina in Greenport. The entire floating dock has been replaced and working fine. The pool and concession stand was open and food and drinks were good. The dock staff is always available to assist when needed.
We always enjoy this marina. We love it's location that's near enough to town so we can walk; A helpful dock master and great crew; a very nice pool area with snack bar & cocktails.
On the positive side, Townsend Marina is close to town which makes it a great location. The marina is small, docking is a little bit tight. But my big negative is that I visited in August of 2020 and they are taking zero precautions for Covid-19. I had been to 5 different marinas over the course of about 10 days in Long Island Sound and this was the only place where the dock hands were not wearing masks, where there was no sanitizer publicly available, no rules about restricting access or social distancing at the pool. No signs about wearing masks when on the docks near others. Needless to stay I would not go here again.
Had a good stay. Unfortunately, the marina didn’t tell us we were going to be in a corner against the bulkhead, and that they rented out the Pool Bar, which was directly behind our boat, for a private party that went to 2:00 am with drunken screaming people. Other than that it was very nice.
Alway a nice quiet time at the marina are great pool is great We’ll be back as always
Haven’t been to Townsend since the early 90’s. Nice new docks. Electric good and dock hands friendly
The marina staff was very helpful on the way to the slip. Nice pool. Easy walk to town where many restaurants were readily available. We will stop again.
Great, well protected marina. Very peaceful. Restaurant is good too!
nice place, well protected and maintained. Good electric power. Easy in and out. Good place.
We enjoyed the marina very much! A protected location, the dock staff was helpful. Old school marina and we fully enjoyed it! Don't go to the restaurant. That was not a good experience at all. But, we'd still go back. The rest was superb.
The place is comfortable, albeit slightly run down, but those of us that come here often know what to expect.
This was our second stay at Townsend and we'll definitely return. Very quiet yet a short walk into town. Friendly staff, nice pool with a great snack bar. We love it there!
Great place, very protected harbor. Easy walk into town.
Good stay but could use some work on the cable and the bathroom is getting dated.
Great hidden gem, little dated but location and charm makes up for it. Pool was clean, very kid friendly. Short walk to town. Tight if you are in the inside dock, however no wind or current to make it challenging. Will stay here again.
Townsend Manor Inn and Marina is a great destination. Our slip backed up to a grassy area very close to the pool. The dock boys were very helpful competent. The pool temp was perfect and has a bar inside the fenced area! It is an easy walk or bike ride to the commercial district in Greenport. My only complaint is that the buildings on the grounds are in real need of exterior maintenance. We have not been able to stay at TMM for years and we will try to get back there soon.
Very friendly atmosphere! Fred and Matt greetest us very quickly as we pulled in to dock! Quiet and calm area! Felt safe and appreciate the cleanliness! Loved it! Will be back!
wonderful stay. Nice people and helpful dock boys. The Tuesday night Pizza truck was an added benefit.
It’s a four because it’s a very reasonable price. Place needs a little TLC and some finger piers. I don’t think during the season I could have docked and been able to get on/off the boat. Luckily they said put it anywhere you see an opening and I found maybe the only slip with a finger pier. Nice folks, okay restaurant and pub and an easy walk to town.
This place far exceeded my expectations. Great friendly staff and the grounds were awesome. We will definitely come back many more times.
