Once a private club with an A-list membership that included the Vanderbilts, today the Montauk Yacht Club is a family-friendly beach escape at the tip of Long Island. The resort is still a draw for serious yachters, but it has equal appeal for couples seeking an idyllic stroll along the ocean or an evening on a private porch. Interiors embrace the nautical theme with gusto, favoring a palette of navy blue and white, framed classic yacht photos and sailing-inspired ornaments.
Bed and Bath
Individual villas are located along the wooden boardwalk and have private terraces and balconies with water views, plus a separate pool area. All 107 guestrooms, villas and suites have received recent face-lifts that respect the property’s history and nautical vibe but also incorporate the modern amenities travelers expect. Bathrooms are simply done up with white tiles, baths with over-tub showerheads and the property’s own bath products.
The main focus is, of course, the water and families and friends can partake in surf lessons, stand-up paddleboarding, sunset paddling on Lake Montauk and kayak tours. The oceanside location means that fresh seafood and creative dining are a big part of the allure, and the manor-style restaurant, the Gulf Coast Kitchen, serves comfort food with unique twists. The indoor/outdoor Hurricane Alley, which has a casual, Florida Keys fish shack vibe, is the perfect place to snack on fresh crab cakes benedict.
In the Area
Take advantage of the seaside location and test your wave-riding skills during a two-hour group surf clinic, or try your hand at paddleboarding (on offer Tuesdays and Thursdays during the summer). The more adventurous can learn how to kitesurf during a half- or full-day class with an expert instructor. Or opt for some pampering in the hotel’s spa — we love the foot treatment with a raw sugar and tangerine–infused jojoba scrub. And if you’re inspired by all the nautical decor, charter one of three boats (Masterpiece Charters, My Mate or Hattrick) right from the Montauk Yacht Club Marina.
How to Get There
Our close friends’ daughter had her wedding here this weekend. Beautiful setting for the ceremony outdoors and outdoor cocktail hour was stunning as well.
We had arrived early during the day and had spent some time at the resort relaxing while the bridal party got ready and took photographs. Excellent food. Highly recommend.
My husband and I stayed here for our minimoon and had a great stay. We were lucky enough to book during the off season and got a villa for a very reasonable rate. The room was very nice - spacious and clean which was all we really needed. The room was right near an outdoor pool, which was unfortunately closed but would be great in the summer. The one bad thing was that the walls were pretty thin - we could hear the people next to us as if they were in the room. It wasn’t a huge issue because we didn’t overlap much, but it might be more of a problem during peak season.
During our stay we went to the Lighthouse Bar which was nice - slightly overpriced but it’s montauk.
Overall it was actually really nice to go in the off season - the indoor pool was open as was the main outdoor pool, as were all the restaurants onsite. There were very few people there so it was quiet and nice.
My husband and I just came back from a one night stay at Gurney's Montauk Yacht Club. We knew Gurney's recently bought the property but we already stayed at the their main resort and wanted a more laid back trip this time. We stayed in a King Oceanfront room on the first floor overlooking the beach. Our room was exactly like the pictures online and the view was even nicer in person. The temperature was a little cool to sit at the beach and pool so we sat on the Adirondack chairs on our patio and enjoyed the view. Our room was clean and the bed was so comfortable, I even asked the front desk what kind of duvet and bedding they use (they weren't sure but I would still love to know!) We had dinner at the hotel restaurant, 32 Star and had a great meal. I would definitely recommend Gurney's Yacht Club to friends.
Nicely refurbished older hotel sitting on the quiet inland side of Montauk. There is a restaurant and outside bar next to the small but well positioned pool Adirondack chairs and fire pits are also set up along the grass and concrete walking path that runs between the resort and the water some rooms face directly out to a calm little and offer attractive striped beach cabanas for two. They also offer stand up paddle-boarding at the little cove there and will even teach SUP yoga if you ask the very easy-going SUP support team nicely.
we rented a slip at the marina for 3 nights. the pool is pretty small for the amount of people that can stay there. but they have 2 to choose from the restaurant is nice a bit pricey. the public showers and restrooms...ugggg no way. sometimes. you want to go our of the boat to shower but not here. the prices you pay it shouldn't be like that.
