If you are looking for a private retreat type marina that makes you feel like you are at a high class resort, this is your place. Harbor Master Matt is first class and runs his Marina as such. Dock staff equally outstanding!

Excellent Marina! Well protected, clean, quiet, tranquil environment with superb grounds, landscaping and facilities. Pool, clubhouse, showers, tennis courts are great amenities, Phenomenal harbormaster and dock staff too!

In our travels to almost every port on Lake Michigan we have never experienced this level of hospitality. Fantastic! Harbor Master Matt communicated ahead of time to tell us what to expect including slip number, directions to the slip, power and tie up instructions. Matt met us at the dock as we tied up and gave us gate keys, combinations, more info about rules. We were invited to join the annual owners BBQ complete with great food and outstanding live music under the big tent. We could not recommend this yacht club more highly. We didn’t have a chance to enjoy the beautiful pool or tennis court, but hopefully can next time. Thank you Harbor Master Matt!!!

Very nice place, but not staffed, you have to guess what slip to dock in. Also, LOTS of mosquitoes in the evening, bring bugs pray!

Marina Response:
Hi Mike! Sorry for the confusion... We sent you the following message through the Dockwa app prior to your arrival: "Hi Mike! Thanks for reserving with us. I've got you in slip D205, which is a bow in port tie near the ramp on our D Dock, which is the dock on the west end of the marina. Call when you're maybe 20 minutes away, and we'll get over there to meet you and get you checked in. We can even help catch lines if you'd like. Look forward to having you here, and see you soon! - Harbormaster Matt" As for the mosquitoes, we hire the Mosquito Squad to spray every 2 - 3 weeks, but you are right! We are located in the middle of the Chiwaukee Nature Preserve, so bug spray is always a good idea. Thanks for your comments, and we will work harder next time to make sure we earn that five star review. Happy boating! - Harbormaster Matt

Matt the Harbor Master was extremely helpful. We were arriving after hours and Matt called us while we were still on the lake and offered to come back to the harbor to help us dock and get settled in! Also, upon our return the next day from a day sail with friends, he again was at the dock to lend a hand. Great customer service!

Marina Response:
It was a pleasure helping you folks out--I'm glad it all worked out. Come back soon! - Harbormaster Matt

Marina was great. Matt (harbormaster) greeted us and gave us a quick tour. The facilities are outstanding. Neighboring boaters invited us to join them for drinks on the dock. Will definitely dock there again.

Marina Response:
Thanks for the great review! I agree that we have some of the nicest boaters on Lake Michigan. Hope you can come back soon! - Harbormaster Matt
