The yacht club was lovely and the staff couldn't have been nicer

We always enjoy going to the Annisquam Yacht Club moorings. The beach is beautiful, the sunsets and the view of the ocean is amazing. The things that keep this from being a 5 star review are:

  1. The fishing boats that run out to the river in the early morning throw a mean wake at you while you sleep.

  2. The crazy weekend boaters partying and consuming the entire beach with their boats anchored on the beach is a bit annoying. I recommend going during the week if possible and avoiding the weekend. We totally enjoy the evenings and mornings best before the weekend boats show up.

  3. I wish the Yacht club would upgrade it's menu. They have a very limited menu not really designed for dinner.
