Yes, it's a cool place to visit for a weekend. The restaurant, Robert Morris Inn is a must place to stop by and eat. Their food and service are excellent. I just returned home late last night because I like night sailing. The narrow is cool to go throught but be careful. My 25' Hunter with 4' keel ran aground on return trip. Luckily I was going at low speed with the boat's motor and I was able to reverse at full speed to get off. Then I had to shift the boat to the middle of narrow. Hope you would make time to go to Oxford!

Re: Oxford, MD

Evening, my wife and I are in Oxford enjoying ourselves. We arrived at Mears Yacht Haven at approx 4:30. After we docked our sailboat, we took an hour cool ourselves at their small but nice and calm swimming pool. Then we took a walk to the nearest restaurant; Schooner's. We enjoyed our dinner with Crap Dip and spinach salad. The cool treat, The Scottish Highland Creamery is next door. They make awesome ice cream. My wife had Key Lime and I had Oreo. We are back in our boat and we will get to sleep shortly. Good nite.

If you get to St. Mike`s, you won`t go wrong at the Crab Claw. It might be busy, but there are reasons for it. Good food.

If you really have your heart set on St Mikes, see if the museum has dock space available for members. Its about $75 to join.

Anchoring near the strand - there a lot of moorings there, but enough room in a few areas to drop a hook. It would be a short row to the sandy beach.

I've never noticed anyone around the ferry dock monitoring how long someone ties up. There are a few slips at the ferry dock, which look fairly new.. The Robert Morris Inn now advertises free docking while dining. That might be the reason for installing the slips.

You can also anchor in Town Creek. I've seen people dinghying back and forth, but I'm not sure where they were tying up.

Also visiting Oxford

We're also planning on visiting Oxford - does anyone know a good place to tie up if one just wanted to visit for about 4 or 5 hours on Saturday? (and don't want to pay for a slip)


"Cruising the Ches" states you can tie up on the Ferry's wharf but that is only allowed for 2 hours. Does anyone have any experience as to how strictly that is enforced? Has anyone anchored at the strand and dingy'd to the beach? (Our dinghy has no motor, so I'm not sure I want to anchor in Plaindealing and row that far if there is any wind..)

Any thoughts on how to visit on the cheap would be appreciated!
