Stayed at their transient slip for one night on the way to Nantucket. Chris was helpful and a good communicator. Club Manager Martina was friendly and welcoming. A strong North wind (unusual direction) blew in the morning we left and getting off the dock was not easy. Plan ahead.
Brian was super helpful getting us settled. The location is remote but very quaint. Thank you
Chris was very friendly and helpful getting us onto the dock, providing us with marina and area information. He pointed us to a nearby beach we could walk to and in the morning helped us get to a local store for supplies. Location is a bit isolated but in a really nice way away from city bustle and noise. We're adding this to our favorites list.
Full service, excellent staff and communication, you couldn’t ask for more.
We loved our stay here on Labor Day weekend. We made a last minute decision to try to stay there, submitting our request on the morning of our arrival, expecting to be turned away. Chris was so great to squeeze us in and set us up on the T dock, a great spot. I'm giving it 5 stars because we are low maintenance and don't need much from a marina. Some might find it lacking in amenities, but it's perfect for us. Thanks again, Chris for a great stay and we'll be seeing you again next season! Chris and Deb on Spirit
Great stay at Sakonnet Point Marina! The dockmaster, Chris, is great!
Deckhands are terrific. Very experienced and helpful. Disappointed the restaurant and bar not open. Not much else out there. Docks and facilities immaculate. Very service oriented Marina. Look forward to returning
If you like quiet after a busy weekend in Newport or Provincetown, you’ll love it here. Looks like space is limited for transients and the restaurant is closed on Mondays and Tuesdays. Proximity to scenic views on both shores and quiet walks around the point.
Super helpul dock team- beautiful location, quiet and clean- Perfect overnight stay!
Nice small marina. Great for a one-night stop over. Nothing nearby to do or see to speak of. Nice scenery. Friendly staff. Not so good WiFi.
Fantastic, great people, beautiful marina
Chris the dock master is very helpful!
Chris is the man! Super accommodating - set us up for a convenient overnight docking. Clean and friendly marina, highly recommended!
Very competent staff
What a gem. Perfect location to split our trip to Nantucket. Chris and the staff were fantastic and knowledgeable. Joined the club and had a fantastic dinner with an awesome view. We will be back.
In the summer 2021 , Dock Master Chris Brady continues to provide an outstanding level of service and support . The crew at the Point club provide a great dining experience, especially appreciated after a long day of sailing , special group of people and location , Thank you , the Gallagher's , see you in 2022
Very cute and clean little Marina. Nice dock crew
Dock staff very helpful.
They were Very helpful staff
Great stay as always
Chris Brady was great. Lovely peaceful harbor
Sakonnet Point Marina is a great stopover between Narragansett Bay and Massachusetts ports. Helpful staff, nice docks, and well protected. Use of the club facilities costs extra. The beach is a nice walk. Only issue was being next to the commercial fishing dock that was in use morning and night.
We love this “off the radar” screen location !! And Chris the dockmaster is the most hospitable we’ve experienced this entire summer. Wonderful food at the club and beautiful walking! The best!!
My second stay here. It's beautiful and they're really accommodating.
Great location and top notch service. Chris was super helpful and $25 ‘membership’ to access yacht club showers and restaurant is definitely worth it.
Perfect! Wonderful staff.
The facility is well maintained by a friendly staff. In 50 years of sailing, I’ve never encountered a ($25) charge to use a bathroom. The pool was also mentioned and featured in the pdf of the property, but use of the pool is $100. use of a private beach was mentioned, but when asked about I was referred to the town beach. The relationship between the marina and the club should be well described on the website and all publications. Otherwise, assume the $4 per foot a down payment!
This is a fantastic spot. Great marina and restaurant!
Really enjoyed the location and atmosphere of a smaller marina. Sakonnett Point Club is an added bonus. Good service arriving and with delivery of ice that we requested. Only issue with the stay was the power on the two towers nearest out boat did not work. We had to resort to our gen set.
Staff was amazing. Spent a lot of time with us as newer boaters. Beautiful and serene location. Dinner reservations are recommended or get to the bar by 5:30 pm.
Very friendly and pet friendly
Dock hands were quite good and the slip was in very good condition. However our slip charges did NOT include access to the private adjoining club, which had the only available heads and showers and cost an additional $25 for the crew. Had we opted to enjoy the pool or fitness center the up charge was $100. Dinner in the club however was quite good.
Dock master was a great help on our first visit to this marina. But it should be noted that this is part of a Yacht Club and they do not offer any amenities including access to bathrooms with out an additional charge of $25.00. First marina we have ever encountered this. If they don't want transients to stop there they shouldn't list it.
Our stay at Sakonnet Point Marina was really extremely good. I highly recommend this marina. It is a small, well-run, welcoming marina. The dock staff is great: very friendly; they guided us into the harbor very well and assisted us in docking our sailboat and also departing the dock (sometimes a finicky experience). They went out of their way to be helpful, even providing a ride to nearby Sakonnet Vineyards (although they are not always available for that). We took advantage of the $25 "temporary membership" at the adjoining Sakonnet Yacht Club, which is definitely worth doing; it allows you access to the Club's very clean, modern showers and restroom facilities, as well as allowing you to eat at their fine on-site restaurant---which serves a nice variety of well-prepared-presented food and has great views of the ocean. The harbor is well-protected, quiet and of easy access. There are fish traps and lobster pots near the entry to the harbor, but are easily avoided if you are vigilant. A call to the marina office can provide very helpful details about the approach. Thanks to Chris, Axel, et al for a very pleasant stay.
Quiet protected marina. Chris was very accommodating and helpful when docking. Third trip there and not our last.
Great crew. Good marina and very helpful. Chris brady was terrific. Thanks
Cheerful, proactive staff. Nice facilities.
They couldn’t be any nicer. No issues whatsoever
Lovely facilities, extremely clean, super polite and accommodating staff. We just did a 5 day trip from CT to Boston, and this was our favorite spot by far.
Very nice little marina. Great service, easy access, would definitely visit again!
Beautiful and peaceful spot with delightful staff (Chris). The restaurant of the Sakonnet YC nearby is also a very welcoming place. This Marina was our preferred one during our sail from Port Jefferson NY to Hingham MA.
