Setting — Hard by the Route 227 Bridge, two docks poke into the creek backed by a two-story building. The bulk of the open slips are on the first pier, to which a very recent extension has been added - it is just lightly offset from the original pier. The second, shorter pier has alongside dockage. Delightful Urbanna is three blocks up the hill.

Marina Notes — In business since 1985. Closed January-March. No permanant dockmaster on-site so this requires a telephone call in advance. Short finger piers, 30 amp power on the piling at the end of the pier. The main pier takes a quick jog at the end onto the new docks. The bathhouse is in the two-story building at the head of the dock and has three heads and a single shower.

Notable — Right up the hill - Watling Street - past the 1875 Palmer-Chowning House, Haywood's Store, and a couple hairdressers - is Angelo's Colonial Pizza Restaurant on the left. Turn right for the rest of quaint, real, downtown Urbanna. The center of this 18th century village, founded in 1680, is on the National Historic Register and many of the restaurants and shops are in restored buildings. Bristow House is a fascinating shop that has retained all of the original artifacts and decor. Marshall's Drug Store has a '50s soda fountain and is packed every morning at 8am for breakfast. For an off-the-boat respite Atherston Hall, an 1880 white Charles Palmer house with green roof and burgundy shutters, is also a sweet B&B. Stop by the Visitors' Center in the restored 17th C. Old Tobacco Warehouse - they offer a 16-site walking tour.
