We stayed at SHYC twice on our way to and from Martha’s Vineyard. The dock was easy to access and well maintained. It was a perfect place for us from a convenience perspective. The clubhouse was a short walk from the dock, which was fine with us. The clubhouse is very new and the shower facilities were top notch. Really great. The restaurant and bar were welcoming, and the food was good. The service was a little slow, but that was ok with us. The dock is a few block walk to Stonington, which was a terrific little town. We had a great time and will definitely be back. Update for 2020: the staff helping on the dock were courteous but were not really dock staff. It was ok as we could handle the docking ourselves, but do not expect a pro dock staff this year. Seems like they are doing their best in the tough COVID-19 summer
Cuttyhunk is a magical place. Go. Now. As for the Pier, it was terrific. The dockhand was skilled, helpful and welcoming. I would stay there again, but would also simply pick up a mooring ball. If you stay on the pier, bring boards to help make the most of your fenders. We had our genders rigged horizontally, which worked fine. Boards would have been better. Our night at Cuttyhunk was amazing. I cannot wait to go back. Note: we ended up picking up a mooring on the way back. That was great too.
Wow. What a gorgeous place. Our mooring was protected and secure, these views were amazing and the launch service super helpful. We loved it. Finding the mooring initially took a bit of hunting, but people around were a big help. Will definitely go back.
We made a last minute reservation and they put us on the fuel dock, which turned out to be a pretty good spot given the wind direction. The staff was courteous and helpful. They could not find a way for us to connect the shore power but other than that, the stay was good. There was a vibrant social life on the docks and the people were friendly. One boat got a little out of hand but the staff put an end to that promptly. We liked to location and would definitely return.
We have stayed here before and keep coming back. The dock hands were as helpful as always and we found the shower facilities to be clean and accommodating. We most like the restaurant right there. A very good option in this part of the Sound.
We stayed about a week at the Black Dog Wharf. The folks there were really helpful and the boat was safe and sound on the days we hung out on Island. The location in the harbor was perfect — protected and an easy hop into MV sound. Once off the boat, it was a little removed. We are one night at the restaurant there which was very good. I would recommend this spot for sure.
