Nice marina. But we looked everywhere for garbage cans. No cans anywhere to be found. The bugs are horrible. It's not the marinas fault. But the boat gets covered by bugs and they also bite.

Beautiful marina. Bonnie went above and beyond to be sure we had everything we need. The grounds are very clean and have everything you could want. The other boaters were extremely helpful and super nice. We loved our stay!

The ,staff couldn't have been more accommodating, and the facility was very nice. I came with 2 other boats and we were made to feel as though we were year round customers. This is the first time we have ever stayed at this marina but I looks like were going back again next year.

Very nice clean picturesque marina. Staff was very helpful and the marina is in a lovely setting in fresh! Water up the Conn. River. Town was a nice walk and if you visit in season you will get to see the Mystic Steam train chug past. We enjoyed our stay.

Thank you Jessica for the ride to the village and back in the pouring rain. Thanks to the friendly staff for having the right part in stock at the right time. Great pool to relax by. Everything is so clean. Stayed 2 nights. Best regards from Canada!

This is an awesome place. Just up the river from Essex this place is a real gem. Brian, Andy, Bill, Steven and the rest of the team are excellent. The docks, bathrooms, pool and grilling areas are well maintained and always clean. You can walk to town for the grocery store or enjoy dinner at the RED HOUSE (our favorite), breakfast at Haley Joes or visit the new coffee place called the The Nest which was created to employee and enjoy fellowship with people with disabilities.

This is our first year staying at this marina (we bought the boat through them). We absolutely love it! The people on our dock are always so helpful and friendly, some of them have become like family. Staff is wonderful, bathrooms are clean and have fresh flowers on the counters, which is such a nice little touch. They have grills under shaded trees or gazebos, grounds are well maintained and they have a swimming pool. The only negative, and this is not the fault of the marina's at all is the current. It's not an easy one, but like I said everybody on the docks are so helpful.
