Changing The Face Of Colchester

Changing The Face Of Colchester

     If you are traveling down Lakeshore Drive in Colchester, and especially if you’re a boater, it’s likely that you’ve seen the construction going on at the old Jakes Marina.  The old Jakes is transforming with the help of its new owner Mark Saba.  I had the pleasure of spending the weekend at Bay Harbor this past week and it was a blast.   A great sense of community fills the air.  The guest were friendly and welcoming, the grills were roaring, the guests were laughing, relaxing and just enjoying themselves. I couldn’t help but think that this marina is going to be great.  
     Mark Saba is changing the face of Colchester and all the boaters that have docked at this marina for years, are along for the ride.  Mark has a vision that is slowly being revealed to the public.  He has built a fantastic new post and beam, Adirondack themed club house featuring a floor-to-ceiling stone fire place, bathrooms that can compete with the nicest spas, beautiful salvaged wood transformed into gorgeous flooring, and floor to ceiling windows. Bay Harbor currently boasts 95 boat slips and is hoping to expand.  Slips are currently priced at $95.00 per foot.  It also offers both Pontoon and Bow Rider boat rentals, transient docking and fantastic customer service – a key component to the vision of the Marina. I recently heard a story of a customer being shocked when the assistant manager offered to take an hour or two to help this new boater practice docking his boat!
     The interior of the new club house is still being finished and the new bathrooms are scheduled to open this Friday.  The grills are fired up, the boaters are enjoying the water and I can’t wait to see Bay Harbor expand, thrive and become the premiere marina on Lake Champlain.  That begs me to ask…. Where are you docking your boat this summer?  Check Bay Harbor out, you won’t regret it.
