One of the nicest marinas we’ve ever stayed in. Friendly, helpful staff, clean facilities and great marina store. Walking distance to a great downtown. Highly recommend!

Burlington Harbor Marina is impressive on so many levels. I love the marina store. It has all the necessities, of course, but goes the extra mile with lots of fun gifts, gear and clothing. The staff is first rate and the shower suites are among the nicest we’ve encountered. Another real treat is the resident food truck, Farmers and Foragers. They’ll even deliver to your slip! For two seasons now, stopping over at this marina has been a high point of our summer cruising on the lake!

This was my first year at BHM, and what an experience it has been! Bob and his staff are friendly, knowledgeable, and will go out of their way to accommodate any requests, but also to make conversation. It is a full-service marina, meaning that they will do anything that is needed to maintain your boat and to ensure that your experience is a safe and enjoyable one. The 2021 season was an extraordinary one, and I can't wait to do it again next year! Cheers to an exemplary staff and a brilliant community :-) Ned Church

Great Marina. Excellent and friendly staff, wide slip isles, and a surprisingly affordable marina store. With the food truck and jazz music adding to the ambience at the entrance, BHM is a great place to enjoy your sundowner.

Burlington Harbor Marina is a wonderful place to tie up whether you’re pulling in for the night, a few days or looking for a seasonal berth. The new amenities for 2021 including a much more well-stocked ship store and nice picnic tables outside are a bonus. I especially love the new docks and convenient access with great parking not too far off. Our classic boat club just had our annual show there and it went off without a hitch. Check it out!

This marina is incredible. We unexpectedly came in late and they stayed after hours to help us!! It was clean, well maintained and i felt very safe leaving our boat in the evenings.

Staff worked hard to make our stay excellent. Vivian gave me 3 stamps from her pocket and Jack gave me fishing line(which I caught several fish). Facilities are immaculate and staff is always cleaning. Location is perfect and downtown is an easy walk. Town bike paths cross property and go for miles.

Everything functional, etc. As a 40 year experienced mariner, this location was better than imagined. Would certainly use them again, and recommend them highly! Vivien Allan was part of the staff I had the pleasure of dealing with.

Cafe food truck on site has a fun menu of foods and they can deliver to your boat! Jack, Robert, Vivian and all the crew here are so friendly and hospitable. Best marina in Burlington Vt. on Lake Champlain. We’ll be back!

We stayed two nights and we would say this is the nicest marina we’ve ever stayed at. We came up the Hudson River from Kingston NY through the Champlain Canal to Burlington. The overall condition of the facility was excellent. The bathrooms and showers were immaculate, something you don’t often see when boating. The docks were large, new, and well protected from the wind. Walking into the center of Burlington was all of 5 minutes. The dock hands were great. And we enjoyed their fresh oysters looking over the marina with musicians playing. We will definitely stay here again.

Very nice facility. Ultimately, everything was great. Owners seen a bit stressed and understandably so with a lot of exposure to public people not part of the paying customer group.

Marina Response:
Hi Sandman, I am happy you enjoyed your visit here. This pandemic year has been stressful on all of us and particularly the staff. Because we are a gated community BHM is obligated to protecting our customers. What that entails is making sure our customers like you stay safe while trying to make things as normal as possible. We try to look at the positive side of things and focus on what we all love, boating and being on the water. Thanks for your comment and be safe!

New and well-maintained facilities with spacious docks. General manager personally collected needed parts for me from local dealers. Highly recommended.

Marina Response:
Thanks Tim, We are glad you and your wife enjoyed your visit . I was a delivery Captain for 30 years and I know what it is like not to have a car to chase parts or supplies. When I was traveling just like many other delivery Captains we were a tight group and shared with each other the marinas that were helpful to us. At Burlington Harbor Marina we are on that list of Great Marina's and want all of our customers to know we got your back! Know that you always have a safe port here in Burlington. Bob

Beautiful marina behind the main breakwater and additional marina breakwater, right near downtown Burlington. Marina opened last year and has a sort of Scandinavian contemporary look. The staff is very pleasant. The marina is isolated by water and a security gate accessed by a password. The shower/bathroom facilities are always ultra-clean and have a pleasant teakwood/nautical look. Docking help well-trained and personable. The docks are super-clean and maintained, and have plenty of subdued lighting for night. Electric and water easily accessed. Waterfront park a super-short walk from the marina and many eateries and things to do nearby. Uber also an option from right outside the marina area. Will definitely be returning.

Marina Response:
We are pleased that you had a great stay with us, and thank you for the compliments on the rest rooms. Our goal is to have the cleanest RR on Lake Champlain. Looking forward to your next visit! Bob

This is our first year at BHM. The facility is new and top notch. Bob and his team provide great service, and we love the scene and the views. Dinner from the food truck delivered to the boat has been great fun.

Marina Response:
Thank you for the compliment. Our team takes pride in making sure your stay with us is the best it can be anywhere on Lake Champlain. We have had great feedback on the food service here as well. Sol and his crew take the extra time to mingle with the customers and prepare each meal to perfection. Bob

The marina is beautiful and the staff are extremely friendly and helpful. Bathrooms and showers are brand new and air-conditioned, and are right on the dock itself so you don't have to walk all the way to shore. We stayed a week and had a fantastic time. It's an easy walk to all the downtown restaurants and shopping. The breakwater kept the marina quite calm and we slept great on the boat despite one night with a sustained 30 knot blow! The only issue we had would not be a problem for most people. We trailered to their location and used the launch ramp next door, but there was nowhere to park our truck or trailer on the marina grounds. I lucked out that I knew someone in the area, and I was able to store my trailer in their yard for the week. We had to use the metered town parking for my pickup. I wouldn't say it detracted from the experience, just something to be aware of if you're planning a trip with a trailered boat.

Marina Response:
We are glad you enjoyed your stay with us! The BHM staff knows that your boating time here on Lake Champlain is very short and much needed. That is why we strive so hard to make your visit a life long memory for you and your family. Hope to see you real soon. Bob and Staff

Some slips see enough wave action that two sailboats' masts hit each other and caused damage. This marina is aesthetically nice, and the wave attenuator built into the outer dock smooths the surface of the water, but it does not stop waves completely like the breakwater does. My boat was on the dock straight out from the gangway for the marina's first season, and the rocking from taking west waves on the beam chafed through my wire topping lift and broke my wind indicator from hitting the neighboring mast. Initially I couldn't figure out how the indicator broke, until a neighbor said during a storm we "were rocking so much it looked like your masts were going to hit!" Apparently they did! Staff were aware of this issue and one mentioned their water lines or conduits broke more than once from the docks' motion! They did have a piece of the outer dock out over the winter and I'm not sure if they were able to improve things, I moved out. Not only is the City marina next door more protected from big waves, it was cheaper to pay the full seasonal rate there and lose my deposit at BHM than to pay the balance at BHM!

Marina Response:
Hi Damon, I hope all is well with you and you are staying safe. I do not know where you are berthing this summer but we miss you and your welcome back anytime if only for a visit. The wave attenuator was not complete when you were here but people rave about it. It stops the heavy seas from entering to marina and the boats are safe. Because we are a gated community our slip holders here feel safer than being in a boating community that is open, and BHM has 24 hour security. Only slip holders and their guest can enter the marina. I think also because our slips come with a parking pass in our private parking lot this justifies the cost. Our slip holders and their families love it here. Please contact me because we have revised our deposit refund policy due to Covid 19. Cheers Bob

Our first stay at Burlington Harbor Marina was a pleasant surprise. The staff was very helpful and friendly. When inquiring where trash and recycling were located they offered to take everything. They deliver supplies to your boat . Docks are great. Nice wide slips. Bath house is top notch. Overall it was a great stay.

Best Marina on Lake Champlain by far! Bob and His staff are very professional and friendly. Best dock to see Events and everything B-Town has to offer. Docks are wave protected unlike the rest in the Harbor. Best Gas and Pump Out System aswell. Air conditioned showers and bathrooms kept clean too. Looking forward to staying there again next year!

Nice facility, great place to spend a night. Docks are large and solid, with clean electric and strong water pressure at the slip. Staff were great when we got there, however, nobody answered on the radio or phone even though staff were sitting at the gas dock ready to help. Gate has a lock but they were't using it, but it's right behind the coast guard station so it seemed quite safe.

It was wonderful!! The docks are so nice, bathrooms were cool to be a single room without having to share with someone and the staff was amazing!!!! Macy did a fantastic job putting the poker run event parking together and she’s a rockstar on the dock and knows her stuff!!
