Trevor and the entire Spring Cove family are extremely professional, hardworking and welcoming. We felt at home under the pines in the grove.
The pool and Wheelhouse Grill were great. It felt like "Cheers" where everybody knows your name!
The gift shop is one of the best we've seen with a great selection of merchandise proudly displayed.
Individual air conditioned bathhouses are pristine, each containing like home shower sink and toilet. Three washers and dryers meant no waiting.
There is a well stocked lending library and lounge with TV.
The courtesy shuttle makes for simple provisioning and dining.
The yard staff was professional, courteous and knowledgeable.
We particularly liked having the pump out at the slip.
The yacht club members made all the transients feel at home. This is a memorable place and hope to return next summer.
"Best Dock Signage" Agree with the other favorable reviews. Very comfortable environment and services. Pool a plus. But to me the best thing is the great signage on the docks including large colored flags unique for each dock (e.g., "look for the green flag at the end of your dock"). With the slip map online, the flags and good directions, finding our slip was a breeze reducing docking anxiety. -Annette Baker
"Always on our annual trip" Love the music in the pool and help from the staff. -Capt. Richard Lewis
"Our favorite in Solomons!" One of the nicest resort marinas on the bay. Pool, pool bar, dockside pumpout, clean restrooms, free shuttle to town, well stocked gift shop, free wifi, and most importantly friendly/helpful staff. What else could you want? Town close enough to walk with several interesting shops and restaurants and the Calvert Marine Museum. -Thurman Harper
"Best we've been to on the Bay!" Fantastic stay, 6/7 to 6/10. First time here but we will definitely be back. Extremely clean, friendly employees that go out of their way, park-like atmosphere. Easy to get into town (marina has a free shuttle or walkable) and plenty to do in Solomons.-Michael Stiglitz
"Nice Place, Good Location" We stayed here 5/16 and it was as nice as the last time! Very professional and laid back, nice docks and a good location (nice dinner at CD Cafe!) makes Spring Cove one of our favorite marinas. -PeterC
"None Better!" 2015 We visited again late April 2015. Just as nice as it was last year!We had an emergency maintenance problem right as we were trying to leave. The staff jumped right on it and we were STILL able to get away in a few hours with the problem fixed! 😀 This place is the best. These folks are the finest. 2014 We were here for 2 days in early May 2014, waiting out some very evil weather. It was a blessed, restoring shelter from the storm raging out in the bay. The wonderful folks here truly made us feel at home! They were friendly, kind and went out of their way to make sure we had what we needed. The shower facilities are the nicest anywhere! Each is a complete bathroom, with shower, toilet and sink, and its own locking door: As nice as any home. Soothing lighting, tile and thoughtful homey touches like nautical border trim around the ceiling and even plants. Amazing...They have a great store that sells everything from boat supplies to liquor. The prices were very good. Some cheaper than West Marine! (A tube of caulk was cheaper here than there. 🙂 There also was a nice selection of souvenirs, clothing and foodstuffs.The grounds were well kept. The whole place was inviting in the way Grandma's summer house would be. How can I say it? Like it was draped in graciousness and caring and even love.We'll be back, because we'll get a free day with our next stay! Also, I want to see the really neat pool bar when it is open. Thanks, Spring Cove! -Ken and Susan

From the moment we obtained a reservation until we left 4 days later, we were impressed with the friendly helpful service, monster sized sparkling pool, shuttle, fresh prepared food at poolside bar & beautiful full baths. We were even given a shady slip! This was the absolute definition of a resort marina. Easy bike ride to ice cream & museum with a lighthouse tour. Concert in the park. We will definitely stay again when we head back to Florida.

The service was impeccable all over from Dockhands to Marina Store! Bathrooms were exceptionally CLEAN! Pool was very well kept. This place is immaculately maintained. - O. July 2014

-:)It was with a heavy heart that we had to say goodbye to Spring Cove at the start of our 17th year as slipholders as we were moving from the area. We cannot give enough accolades to this fine marina, truly the best of the Chesapeake Bay and even the East Coast (as we have sailed it from New Jersey to the Bahamas). The setting itself is beautiful, with park-like grounds, tropical landscaping, and a swimming pool, all immaculately maintained. Everything --from the private bathrooms to the well-stocked ship’s store to the Wheelhouse poolside bar and grill--is designed with the comfort of the slipholder or transient in mind.
While the marina itself is beautiful, its most valuable asset is the staff. Trevor and Liz, the owners of Spring Cove and both bluewater sailors, take a hands-on approach to running their marina, and their attention to detail shows. Their dedication is echoed in the dock crew, office, shop, and bar staff, who are all unfailingly courteous and helpful. In addition, Spring Cove has a terrific yard crew. They are professional and knowledgable, and no matter how busy they may be, they are willing to take the time to listen and to offer their expertise.
We simply cannot say enough good things about Spring Cove, so we encourage everyone reading this to experience it for yourselves. You will not find a better marina.

Spring Cove Marina is an excellent facility, very protected. Trevor and Will and all staff treat you like family. The marina is family owned and operated - and all staff are courteous and available should you need assistance. The ships store has most essentials and surprisingly unexpected niceties. West Marine is within (close) walking distance - & Spring Cove offers bikes and operates a shuttle for further location access (groceries, retail, dinning, sight seeing) The marina includes well maintained grounds with shaded picnic areas and a great pool to cool down on hot days. -Dale H.
BEST OF THE BEST! 2013 - Everything I said in my 2012 review still stands. This year we came back intending to stay 2 nights and have now signed up for several months. When we arrived we were having problems with a blocked waste line. Within minutes of asking for help Kevin arrived from their shop. He was the most efficient worker we have ever had on the boat...knew exactly what to do and how to do it. Once he identified the problem he only had to make one trip to the shop for supplies. He replaced the line in less than 2 hours, charged us for exactly the amount of time spent, and charged us substantially less for the replacement hose than we would have paid at West Marine even with our 15% discount coupon. Once again, all of the staff here are the greatest and the owner, Trevor, is hands on and goes out of his way to satisfy. We just can't say enough good things about this place. And on top of it all, they have recycling available!Our only wish would be for cable TV at the slip, but at least they have the lounge with new large flat screen TV. Also, great book exchange! -Capt. Betsy Johnson "Rick 'n Roll"
The setting is beautiful, the facilities are complete and well-maintained, and the staff has been enthusiastically helpful at every turn. Even the beer selection in the shop is top notch. I understand why so many people make this a regular stop. Capt M. Miller
Cannot say enough about this place. Friendly staff. Family run with owners hands on. Great bar and a really cool rum punch. The Marina store has a little of everything and beer and wine. Aked the bartender where to watch the fireworks from and he said right here at the pool. He wasn't wrong and bar was open till 10 ish. Would stay here again and again. -B.C.
"Now that we are home, I wanted to send you a note to thank you and thank all of your professional staff at Spring Cove Marina for ensuring that we had an enjoyable and safe stay at your facility. As I mentioned to you one day, we've traveled from Lake Ontario down to the Florida Keys, and your marina is by far the BEST marina that we've ever stayed at. I have and I will continue to recommend to all my friends passingthrough the Chesapeake Bay to stay at Spring Cove Marina. Thank you." -J&R.W "Imagine"
"This is the most well-run marina we have seen in a long time. We wintered our boat here and had some major bottom work done. Great communication between the boatyard staff and us on the repair work throughout the winter. There was never any pressure, things went like clockwork, even when we launched and stayed for 4 days (pay 3 and the 4th is free). The "Clean Marina" title is well deserved & everyone is professional and friendly. They have bikes and a free shuttle service available." -K.M.
"Spring Cove is our favorite destination on the Bay. Trevor and his staff are the most friendly and accomodating. In addition, during our last stay we needed the Boat Yard services, and they repaired our boat quickly and at reasonable cost. We love it here!!" -J. & C. P.
