Can Anyone Recommend a Marina Near Deale, MD ?

I am about to sign on for a contract near Deale, MD. If you have a marina you would recommend it would be appreciated. I need/desire very clean bath facilities, a pool for the kids, someplace other than the pool for the kids.

I am looking at Shipwright, Herrington North (and South) so if you have an opinion on those as well. Others welcome.

I am in downtown DC and want to keep the commute to an hour (or less)

You can't beat Herrington Harbor North or South. North is larger, has haulout facilites, lots of vendors on site, and a very nice pool, bathouse, and other facilities. HH has won numerous awards for the cleanest operation around, and both yards are very well run.

Herrington Harbor North

We are liveaboards in the summer at HHN. Its a great place to be, with lots of amenities - pool, hot tub , gym, laundry, TV rooms, free wifi. All very clean and 'green' with wildlife habitats and plenty of space for BBQ. Plus its the biggest marina on the east coast for haul-outs in the winter, with all facilities on site. The channel in was dredged last year, so we don't run aground with our 6 foot draft. We highly recommend it.

No, I don't think my $100/month slip across the creek would meet your requirements--no pool. But I have used HHN for hauling for 17 years and have never been disappointed. I like the fact that if you haul in the summer for maintanace, they have so much room you don't need to be next to another boat.
