    It's a nice marina with competent staff. Easy in and out. That's the good. We were there on rainy Sunday afternoon/night, so the outside facilities of restaurant were essentially closed. If the weather had been nice, we understand this is a "happening" place. If that's your thing great. If not, forewarned.

    Warning to fellow boaters. This place is a mess. The Dockmaster told me they don’t take reaervations and to hail within range. I did. No answer. I called. No answer. Finally was told via phone that there would be green shirted hands to help me when I arrived. Pulled in. No one. Tied up. Told I was at the wrong dock and they needed to dredge before they could accommodate larger boats. Are you kidding me? Dock hand finally came (who was helpful and apologetic) said the girls in the gift shop don’t know anything about boats. Docked at Schaefer’s across the channel. Responsive, helpful and terrific food. Not likely to return to Chesapeake Inn!

    Stopped here to wait out the weather for our run to Cape May. The marina caters more to the recreational boater and locals who come in to party at the bar and get drunk. We were here over the weekend and the noise went on until after 1:00am, even on Sunday evening. A girl puked on my husband's shoes as he tried to make his way from our boat to the bathrooms. Mess still there in the morning. Bathrooms needed cleaning and where they are located is where all the drunk smokers hang out so you have to try to make your way through them to get to the door. The key pads are tricky. They don't light up until you run through a bunch of numbers first. For what we paid $2.75/ft over the weekend I would expect much better. Which is sad because there is a good restaurant on site, dock staff are very helpful and knowledgable and there's a quaint town to walk around in. If you are looking for quiet, restful stop this is not it.

    Great setting half way through the C&D Canal. Restaurant on site, great country roads to walk dogs or ride the rolling hills in a bicycle.
