Reviews for Miller Marina
Book early and book often!, 2015-11-10
Captain: , Catawba Island, OH (291)

Great marina with nice ammenities and clean restrooms. It is a public marina, but it definitely has a private club feel. Close to town and all of the action.

Millers marina, 2015-07-17
Captain: , Windsor (270)

Open to the lake, no wall. If the wind comes from the north or west you roll! The high speed ferries and go fast boats send wakes in all night. Very clean.

Nice Facility, Poor Service, 2015-06-04
Captain: , Chesterfield, MI (37)

Nice showers and facility. But they do not answer phone calls and/or emails. After several emails went unanswered i called repeatedly. Finally got a hold of someone who said he would call me back. Never did. Good luck trying to stay here.

Looks nice, but I guess I'll never know, 2014-09-07

A friend of mine stayed at Miller's once and it seems like a very nice marina. And as the only marina that takes public reservations, I've been trying to get in here for two years. I stopped by last September and tried to make a reservation for Pyrate Weekend. I was told no reservations until April 1st- even though I was willing right then to pay for the full weekend up front. But they don't answer phone calls anymore -the number says to e-mail for reservation requests. Well they don't answer e-mails either. This past March-April I emailed twice a week for a month and have still never received a response. Oddly enough, I never have any trouble getting a response from Point Place, even though I'm not a member- In fact, they've even made a couple of reservations for me.

Very, Very Nice, 2014-08-04
Captain: , Naples, FL (170)

They listen on VHF 74.
Very nice marina out of the crazy zone of Put-in-Bay. The staff was very helpful and met us at the dock and helped us secure lines. The facility was very clean and updated. The manager even gave us some suggestions for eating and entertainment in the city.
I highly recommend this Marina. And Put-in-Bay, of course, is great. There is no rafting here. Call ahead for a reserved slip if at all possible.

Nice facility, great staff, 2013-06-24
Captain: , POWELL (58)

Very clean well-run place to stay. As mentioned elsewhere, very short walk to downtown PIB, but quiet at tnight. Rich & his staff are courteous, very helpful. People staying here friendly. New showers for 2013.

Great Family Marina, 2013-04-24
Captain: , Catawba Island, OH (140)

Miller is perfect for families--quiet enough to be away from all the hassle, but close enough to take a stroll downtown. There are BBQ grills available for us (charcoal) and a nice pavilion to eat under. The staff is great--Rich takes care of you and his dockhands have even spent time fishing with our kids. Great place to stay--and they take reservations!

Millers Marina at Put In Bay, 2012-08-02
Captain: , Catawba Island, Ohio (610)

This is one of the nicer places to stay at Put In Bay, if you are not a member of a club, and you don't want to put up with the City Docks. They just built a new bathroom, and a bunch of new shower stalls this spring (2012). No more long lines for the shower! Nice place to stay, freindly staff and can accomodate large clubs. Also is where the Miller Ferry docks at night.

New bathrooms!, 2012-05-29
Captain: , Cedar Point, OH (659)

Additional bathrooms are under construction. They appear to be nearly complete.

Tiny, but nice, 2011-08-09
Captain: , Detroit (720)

Far down from the main party strip, but worth the easy walk to have the quietness when you want it and still get over to the town easily. Nice little picnic pavilion. all dockage is basically side tie to a pier or wall. Clean and quaint, which was a nice relief from the wild party downtown and better for my family with kids.

Great place to escape the craziness., 2011-07-07
Captain: , Grosse Ile (95)

PIB can be a crazy place. Miller's allows for you to be within walking distance yet far enough away to enjoy a quite glass of wine on the deck. The guys at Miller's are great, helpful, and well knowledged. Clean everything. Docks are non-floating.

Miller Marina, 2009-08-29
Captain: , Cheboygan, MI (80)

Very nice marina for a transit. Only 5 docks, (non floating), so reservations are beneficial, especially for weekends. Clean restrooms and showers (2). Free WiFi. No mandatory rafting. Golf cart rental on site. Staff very pleasant.
