Chesapeake Bay, Western Shore Marinas

I also posted this in the "Destinations" section, but wanted to post here as well in case that doesn't get as many views.

Any tips on a good a marina within an hour of DC.

My requirements:

Deep draft, boat draws 6' 2"
Reasonable distance from DC (hour tops)
Easy Bay access

My wish list:

On the small side, I don't need / really want a massive resort
"Park-like" setting (aka, I'd like some grass and not just boat yard gravel)
I'd prefer to stay off the Beltway, 95 or 50

Right now we are at Paradise Marina in Deale. It's an easy drive down MD 4, couple good bars nearby and the marina is small (50-60 slips), has a community feel and if there's no wind, you can just sit in the grass and have a drink. I'd like to stay there, but just don't think it's deep enough.
