About Montauk Yacht Club Resort Hotel & Marina
Founded in 1928 and situated along a 22-acre waterfront, the historic Montauk Yacht Club Resort & Marina has long been a perennial favorite playground for those who frequent the shores of Long Island's South Fork East End. The Resort actually began as three separate estates. The original club building was built by entrepreneur Carl Fisher, the master builder who turned Miami from a sleepy backwater town into a thriving resort city. Fisher had dreams of replicating his success with the small seaside village of Montauk by creating a playground for the rich and famous. The club's original membership included Vincent Astor, J.P. Morgan, Jr., Nelson Doubleday, Edsel Ford, Harry Payne Whitney, Thomas Eastman, John Wanamaker and Harold S. Vanderbilt. Among the many guests was famed aviator Charles Lindbergh, who often flew his seaplane into the harbor to dock at the Marina.
Today, the Resort offers 107 comfortably-elegant guestrooms with views of Lake Montauk, including 23 Villa accommodations. The Resort features superb dining in the Lighthouse Grill and lighter fare within the casual ambiance of Breeze’s Café. Social and corporate groups are accommodated within flexible event space, including four conference rooms and a newly renovated ballroom, as well as extensive outdoor space. Recreational offerings include a private beach, the Montauk Yacht Club Spa, tennis, outdoor and indoor pools, and golf at the nearby Montauk Downs, however the highlight is the property’s 232-slip marina -- recognized by Yachting magazine as a “Top Ten Marina Destination in North America, Mexico & the Bahamas.” Home to the Brits vs. Yanks, Redbone, and Whitewater Challenger Montauk Yacht Club fishing tournaments, the marina accommodates vessels 250+ feet with a maximum 12+-foot draft, and features comprehensive on-site amenities, as well as signature Island Global Yachting services.
