We were warmly welcomed — for our day trip to Winter harbor. They arranged lunch reservations for our party of 6 as well as scheduled the launch service to pick us up. The food was really good and had lots of variety. They were willing to customize any way that they could to meet our needs. The yacht club seemed to be a very friendly and offered lots of activities for the whole family. Not fancy, but definitely was welcoming and accommodating. Definitely met the needs of the community. Reubens, Lobster BLT and Blueberry pie as well as the delicious cookies were hits with our group.

This is a very responsive and welcoming place. It’s a nice respite from the hustle of MDI. Jim was very thoughtful trying to accommodate us when they were full. Tender driver Sam came by and could not have been more polite and friendly. Thank you for running a great operation with labor in short supply.

Gorgeous views, always an eagle or two. Facilities are rustic and quite charming. Dock crew is always friendly and helpful. Had delicious sandwiches from the walk up window. Probably won't do that again though. We expected it to be a tad pricey, did not expect an automatic 20% gratuity for a take-out and that included the self-serve beer.

It was a lovely stay, we were directed to our mooring by a courteous launch driver. We enjoyed a lovely lunch followed by a walk over the trail with great views. It is be of our favorite spots!!

Ethan and Rob on the dock and with the launch were terrific. Polite, helpful, and available. And the food delivered was delicious.

WHYC is an absolutely beautiful old club. The staff is friendly and attentive and the members are welcoming. We’ll be back next year.
