Looking for a cheaper marina in the Baltimore area

I was a liveaboard for a few years, and so I've been docked at BMC's Harborview location because of the amenities. I love it there, but as I'm no longer living aboard, I'd prefer to move it somewhere cheaper. The thing is, I am having trouble parting with the pool. Does anyone have recommendations of marinas that are in the ballpark of $2,000 annually and have pool access? Within a half hour of Baltimore City is preferred.

Don't think what you're looking for exists. If you're 30 feet or under you might find a slip Bowley's Marina in the low $2k ballpark. You'd have a few other options if you dropped the pool requirement.

Different part of the country, but we pay almost that much to keep our trailer sailor in a marina parking lot!

On the other hand, if you were to look for a mooring, you might find something more in your price range.

Try Anchorage Marina over on the other side of the harbor in Canton. I have stayed there for the last two summers and was happy with the place, they have a pool and free parking.
Most of the slips are owned by individuals and those currently without boats will probably rent to you directly. Check their website where they list owners wanting to sell their slips; many of the owners listed will be willing to rent the space to you. Also, it might be worth stopping by the marina and checking the notice board. There are usually a few advertisements for slip rentals posted.
