    We have stayed at Albermarle Planatation a couple of times and it's always a great experience! James is very friendly & helpful, as was everyone we met there. We enjoy the beautiful setting. Great place for walks or a bike ride. I was very appreciative of the free laundry and got caught up on all our wash! Before departing we topped off our tanks because their fuel prices are very low!

    We just spent 3 nights here while doing the Albemarle Loop. What a great marina! JE was at the dock to help us tie up, after another boater waved us towards our slip. The docks are well kept, power and water worked well. The docks are VERY long and it's a long way to the restroom/showers. They provided us with a golf cart to use for the entire 3 nights we were there for only $25 for the whole stay. Even got us a bigger golf cart so we could drive around the neighborhood with our German shepherd. There was a restaurant at the marina where we ate a couple of times. Wonderful neighborhood for walking. All the residents were very friendly and welcoming. Restrooms were a good size and clean. Highly recommend a stop here, even if you're not doing the Albemarle Loop. It's a great destination just by itself.

    We stopped in at Albemarle Plantation as part of out Ablemarle Loop. We were met by J.E. the dockmaster and some helpful hands. From the minute we arrived we were met by the most friendly people imaginable. It seemed everyone was interested in us our boat and how did we like the marina. I can not say enough about how well we were treated and how warm and outgoing everyone there is. We felt so much at home we visited the sales office in contemplation of moving there. If you are in the Albemarle do not pass up the opportunity to stop in for a visit.

    We've been here several times. This time they have an inviting crackling wood fire in a brick open pizza oven - a nice addition. The amenities are very nice. Because it is a resort laid out with a lot of space, a golf cart was furnished by the marina to make getting around very easy. We were their 70th Albemarle (Sound) Loop boat for the years. There is a washer and dryer at no cost at the marina Dockside restaurant. Golfing is the big activity here. In the off season (fall through spring) the marina offers an attractive reduce monthly rate. From 2015-2018 they, and seven other marinas around the Albemarle offered 48 hours of free dockage to attract boaters to the Albemarle Loop. Follow the bouys into the marina; they were placed differently than indicated on the navigation charts.

    We stayed here two nights and would have stayed longer if the weather window would have allowed us to travel later. The facility is in a large golf and boating gated community. All the facilities are either top notch or being overhauled to that standard. There was a professional golf tournament going on whilst we were there which says a lot about golf (not my strong suite). The fuel pump pricing is very competitive. This is certainly a must stop when doing the Albermarie Loop.

    Albemarle Plantation is one of those hidden secrets. Part of the Albemarle Loop that towns are promoting along the Albemarle Sound, the Plantation has plenty of docks, fuel, a great golf course and, most importantly, hospitality. The homeowners in the community own the marina and all common areas, so they are especially attentive. Finally, as part of the Albemarle Loop, you get two nights of dockage at no charge (this year they've added a small charge for electric.) The approach to the dock is easy, but pay attention to the marks. And, there are lots of crab pot buoys in the sound. If you draw over 6 feet, give the dock master a call for special guidance. If you plan on eating in the club house, check the hours of operation. Charming and quiet. This is our second visit in the past two years.

    Worth the side trip up the Albemarle Sound to find this gem. Stayed here for the Sail to the Sun Rally event and the place is outstanding and the service is even better - they really know how to cater to boaters. Great events, like the oyster roast we attended, and amenities. The 18-hole golf course is in outstanding shape. Be cautious of all the crab pots in the sound, but if you're looking for a fun adventure off the "beaten path", head this direction.
