DO YOU WISH YOU could find a getaway destination where you can leave worries behind and enjoy life’s simple pleasures? Then Haven Harbour Marina Resorts are your dream come true.
These hidden gems on the Chesapeake Bay’s Eastern Shore are just a short cruise from Baltimore and Annapolis tucked away in a charming waterman’s town and surrounded by natural beauty.
The two picturesque marina resorts — Haven Harbour Marina and Haven Harbour South — have merged to create a boater’s paradise with 350 slips that accommodate vessels up to 70 feet. Haven Harbour Marina offers two floating piers and one fixed pier, while Haven Harbour South has all fixed docks and floating piers slated for the near future.
Services include complete yacht repair, installations and maintenance. Haven Harbour is a full-line Yamaha outboard dealer and a trusted Imtra product installer and service provider. Technicians are in-house professionals with years of industry experience. The marinas have sizable boatyards with space for hundreds of dry-stored vessels and feature a full- service fuel dock and pump-out station.
You can soak up the sun at the swimming pools or the beach, work up a good sweat at the fitness center, or let the kids run free at the playground. Paddleboards, kayaks and bicycles are available, and both marinas are pet friendly, so everyone gets to join in the fun. When you’re ready to grab a bite, you can choose between packing a basket for a seaside picnic or savoring snacks, cocktails and a stellar view at Passages Bar & Grill.
You can spend the night at the Inn at Haven Harbour’s cottage-cute rooms, each with a distinct theme and decor.
Nearby Waterman’s Museum is a fine starting point for exploring the region. Its exhibits on crabs, oysters, fishing and working boats help build appreciation for the tight-knit communities that build their lives around the Chesapeake waters. An easy jaunt into the town of Rock Hall brings that history to life, as you stroll along the streets that are lined with gift shops, vintage stores, quaint summer cottages and restaurants serving the Bay’s bounty of fresh seafood.
