A message from our Manager, Bob Morris:  Over thirty years ago I started working on boats & docks for my grandfather, Bob Morris, the original owner of Brown’s Beach for decades.  Now, I am happy to return to work on the lake as the new Brown’s Beach Marina Manager for the Town of Stillwater. I look forward to working with you to insure a relaxing, enjoyable summer on Saratoga Lake.  

Brown’s Marina is a PRIVATE Marina. There is NO public launching and NO docking any vessels, unless you have a current slip rental (includes PWC). Currently, we have a waitlist of over 300 that started back in 2016 when Menneto’s ran the marina for the town. We are no longer accepting names for our wait list.
