Setting — A beige, three-story glass-front contemporary topped with a French-blue roof and cupola rises steeply above the docks, announcing McDaniel's very protected 31-acre facility. That theme is replicated throughout this beautifully renovated, immaculate facility. Past the wave fence, the marina divides into two basins - imagine a reverse "check mark." To starboard is the shorter basin, ringed with slips; to port is a long meandering waterway, hosting covered and uncovered slip, that ends at the boatyard operation and the pool. The central peninsula houses the sparkling new amenities building.

Marina Notes — A large, well-equipped ships' store and beautiful new boaters' lounge sit on the central pier. Easy chairs surround several sets of tables & chairs; there's a big-screen TV plus broadband access (cables available in the main office). A picnic area on the deck provides views of the passing boat traffic. The serious boatyard operation, on-the-hard storage, and inauspiciously-sited pool are set farther up the waterway, away from the main slips. Certified Clean Marina. Dealer for Carver, Navagator, Kohler, Criuse Air, Mercruiser. Adjacent to the boaters' lounge is the inviting main bathhouse; the vanity has skirted molded sinks with assorted toiletries. Across the waterway is a second, brightly painted cinderblock bathhouse.

Notable — McDaniel's provides daytime transport into the nearby, bustling village of North East (for dinner, take a cab back). About a half-dozen interesting restaurants, a plethora of antique, collectible and clothing shops, galleries, plus the Upper Bay Museum have made North East a destination. The renaissance was kicked off by now nationally-famous Woody's Crab House, which spun off a mini Woody's industry and ultimately, a whole new town.
