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
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. http://www.bayharbormarinavt.com/
