We’ve always enjoyed our past stays at Spring Cove but this year it was just off. It took 20 minutes of idling time in the harbor before we got our slip assignment, then we were tucked back behind the Beacon Marina boat shed against a bulkhead wall near the travel lift. It was noisy listening to power washing boat bottoms all day and then our second day a giant lift was placed on the dock behind us as they cut down trees all day. The docks are in rough shape and showing there age, we had a number of loose boards on our catwalk. I was told it’s u see new management and hopefully they get it worked out. Solomons is a great town and has rebounded of the past couple years and really an enjoyable anchorage.

Marina Response:
We apologize for the experience you had and hope you are satisfied with how we tried to address the issue privately.

Very nice facility. Private bathrooms, pool side bar was a great perk. Dock side pump out available at your slip was extremely convenient. Although we did not use the grills, there was gas available for grilling. Very convenient ships store with Ice, Water, Wine and souvenirs. I’ll be back.

This place has always been good but is under new management and they are great. Booking was easy - the confirmation email had all the info we needed. They kindly gave me a bulkhead because I’m injured. Jim on the fuel dock is great. We will be back again soon.

My husband and I enjoyed the past weekend cruising the Bay and got an overnight slip at Spring Cove Marina in Solomons. It was awesome! Spring Cove surpassed our expectations--easy docking, helpful staff, beautifully kept grounds, clean and private bathrooms/showers, amazing pool and bar with gorgeous view, great store and more! Thanks to Spring Cove's courtesy shuttle, we were able to explore the town and had a great dinner at CD Cafe. The owners and staff were so accommodating, friendly and professional--it was obvious that their focus was to make sure all guests and slip owners had the best experience. Shout out to Addison and the entire Spring Cove team. Thank you! Can't wait to return!

What a beautiful harbor. The dock hands were very helpful in securing our boat in strong winds. They even selected a spot that would be more user friendly for the weather. The office manager was friendly and welcoming. She gave us great instructions for our walk to the island and The Pier. The marina is clean and convenient. They offer a courtesy car.

Spring Cove benefits from a wonderful setting with shaded picnic areas, pool with a great view, plus tiki bar with live music. I highly recommend a visit. That said, the fairways are tight, the finger piers are short and the docks could use some maintenance. I requested a slip for a 40`footer for our 36` with dingy on davits. When calling for our slip assignment the dockmaster repeatedly mentioned backing in so we did only to f8nd a 3' finger pier that barely reached past our dinghy. By the time we figured this out it was a bit late to turn the boat around so we just endured the gymnastics of climbing DOWN the side of the boat to jump on the finger. The process was further complicated by a loose board we called to their attention twice and were told it would be fixed but was still flopping when we departed.

Marina Response:
Hello Bill815, Thank you very much for your review. I'm glad you enjoyed your stay with us. I apologize that you were not satisfied with your slip, and we will do our best to improve on that if you stay with us again. We hope to earn your business in the future and we will try to find you a slip that better suits your boat. The loose dock board issue has been taken care of, I'm only sorry that it was not done in a more timely fashion. Thank you again for your review. Will Richards - Manager

We limped in to Spring Cove Marina four years ago quite by chance as we had some prop damage. Immediately we were treated by the staff with respect, efficiency and a smile. We are still here! We love it. The park-like grounds are relaxing, well-maintained and as attractive in the Fall as they are in the high Summer with floral colour dotted throughout the gardens. The pool and bar area is a great place to hang out on a hot summer's day and the standard of the bathroom and laundry facilities is second to none. They are constantly being cleaned by the Spring Cove team who are all easily identifiable in their uniforms. We have had a number of mechanical jobs done on the boat - all of which have been more than satisfactory and cost-effective. It is with huge regret that we will leave this marina at the end of this season as we are selling our boat. It's been an absolute pleasure to be here and we would certainly highly recommend Spring Cove Marina as a stopover or even better, a home base.

An Amazing Experience! I work for MarineMax in Baltimore. We brought some of our customers to Spring Cove for a Getaway! weekend. Our experience there was nothing shy of perfection. Dock hands waited for us on our approach, an eager staff was there to attend to anything we might need, and the pool was cool and refreshing. We were so happy with our experience and are already planning to spend another weekend there with customers next year! Thank you for a great time! -MarineMax Baltimore

We stayed at Spring Cove Marina with several other boats coming back from St. Michaels(july 19th, Boat name Tramp) only stayed one night, wish it could have been longer. Loved the grounds, pool, gift shop, the staff, dock hands were especially nice and helpful. Oh, did I forget to say how clean the showers/bathrooms were! And, I liked that they were individual, nice touch! We will be back! It's a long haul from Hampton, VA but my husband and I think it is well worth it! Hope to see you soon! Candace and Henry Hudgins

It was with a heavy heart that we had to say goodbye to Spring Cove at the start of our 17th year as slipholders as we were moving from the area. We cannot give enough accolades to this fine marina, truly the best of the Chesapeake Bay and even the East Coast (as we have sailed it from New Jersey to the Bahamas). The setting itself is beautiful, with park-like grounds, tropical landscaping, and a swimming pool, all immaculately maintained. Everything --from the private bathrooms to the well-stocked ship’s store to the Wheelhouse poolside bar and grill--is designed with the comfort of the slipholder or transient in mind. While the marina itself is beautiful, its most valuable asset is the staff. Trevor and Liz, the owners of Spring Cove and both bluewater sailors, take a hands-on approach to running their marina, and their attention to detail shows. Their dedication is echoed in the dock crew, office, shop, and bar staff, who are all unfailingly courteous and helpful. In addition, Spring Cove has a terrific yard crew. They are professional and knowledgable, and no matter how busy they may be, they are willing to take the time to listen and to offer their expertise. We simply cannot say enough good things about Spring Cove, so we encourage everyone reading this to experience it for yourselves. You will not find a better marina. Eric & Ann

This note came recently from an appreciative customer! Trevor: Now that we are home, I wanted to send you a note to thank you and thank all of your professional staff at Spring Cove Marina for ensuring that we had an enjoyable and safe stay at your facility. As I mentioned to you one day, we've traveled from Lake Ontario down to the Florida Keys, and your marina is by far the BEST marina that we've ever stayed at. I have and I will continue to recommend to all my friends passing through the Chesapeake Bay to stay at Spring Cove Marina. Thank you. John & Reen Wickett "Imagine"
