A great location with very friendly staff. A short walk to a variety of shops, restaurants and historic homes. For us it’s the halfway point between Newport and our home port in Essex. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

We had a delightful stay in Stonington at the Stonington Harbor Yacht Club. We cam in during a miserable storm with very rough conditions and late. Yet Club members and staff cam to catch our lines and help us tie our boat up. We had dinner at the club and were delighted with our meal. We also were very happy to run into and join boating friends at dinner. The next days we enjoyed exploring Stonington and it restaurant, stores, beautiful parks and wonderful historic nomes.

Great location and a floating dock to tie up to. Pretty much do it yourself docking and great showers, but of a hike. Friendly spot

I would definitely return. Tricia in office was very helpful. The free ice was a first for me! I wish the building was open after 4:30. No heads or showers!! Only 2 suggestions: -some dock pedestal lights not functioning makes tripping more likely -lack of trash barrel anywhere near docks, how come?
Marina Response:
We are glad you enjoyed your stay and look forward to seeing you again. Thank you for bringing the lighting issue to my attention, I will certainly have someone take a look at it. We do have a small garbage area to the left of the docks at the end of the parking lot, my apologies for not ensuring you were show where it is located. - Tricia

Loved the location. Staff was great and very helpful. Very disappointing internet access at the dock. In fact the cell signal was extremely weak as well at the dock. But that is not the Yacht Club's fault. Again, that outstanding location makes up for the minor inconvenience. I would definitely return again. Loved it!!!

Lovely harbor. We were packed in on the floating dock, and the staff and other boaters were very helpful. SYC club house is beautiful, a bit of a walk from the docks but with laundry, heads and an excellent restaurant Very much enjoyed our dinner there. Stonington Borough is an easy walk with shops and restaurants for breakfast and lunch. The only reason this is not a 5 star review is the lack of wi-fi at the docks. Our phones had no signal and without wi-fi we had to walk up to the club to get weather updates. Stormy couple of days.
Marina Response:
We are so glad you enjoyed the amenities that we have to offer and had a nice stay in Stonington. Wi-fi is very tricky in this area and we can only hope it improves in the future. We hope you will visit again!- Tricia

Love the location and we enjoyed being able to walk to Dog Watch for dinner. The SHYC staff was friendly and helpful, even offering free ice which was great. However, not having access to heads or showers between 5 pm and 9 am is unfortunate. Even so, we enjoyed our one night stay.
Marina Response:
We are happy you enjoyed your stay. We understand that Tuesday evening restricted access can be a drawback, as we are not a full service marina. We hope you will visit again on any other evening when we offer dinner service.- Tricia

Stay was excellent and accommodating to our need to have easy access departing early morning unassisted. Dock master bathroom as great.

We always love our stay at Stonington. Beautiful and quiet with easy access to the quaint town. Excellent helpful staff. Wish the bathroom/shower facilities had a little easier access. Otherwise always great stay.
