History In 1911 The Stone Harbor Yacht Club was built for Stone Harbor Realty Company by John Larsen, grandfather of previous Fleet Historian, Jane Scott. The Club failed during the Depression. But in 1929, Jane’s father, Clarence O. Letzkus, along with a small group of men, reorganized the club as The Yacht Club of Stone Harbor by selling proprietary memberships. The 1911 building is used to this day by members and their guests. An exhibit including Club history can be seen at the Stone Harbor Museum. Now you will see an exhibit on the Club’s history installed at the Club.

Mission The mission of the Yacht Club of Stone Harbor is to provide an attractive, comfortable and safe facility where its members, guests and children can meet to socialize, dine and take part in activities intended to promote fellowship, recreation, civic mindedness, and the enjoyment of waterborne sports such as sailing, motor boating , fishing and swimming.

What a great Merry Mingle. Got to try so many yummy appetizers and see so many friends. Merry Christmas & thank you!

Photo of Kyle L.

The food is some of the worst on the island. For a place that requires a membership and wants to appear prestigious you would think the food would be half decent at least. The new interior and renovations are great but the menu is the same old boring, bland, simple food.

We had dinner there Saturday night and it was soon good. I had stuffed mussels as a starter and we had watermelon soup!!! Pecan encrusted pork YUMMY!

Photo of Nancy H.

The atmosphere of this place hasn't changed much over the years. It's still small town, rinky dink, and overpriced. If you're looking for world-class, this isn't it. They have managed to renovate the décor occasionally in the last 45 years, but that's not saying much. The only thing high end are the prices. And, foodies beware: the food is mediocre, at best. Their main reason for success is that there's no competition in town. But if you're into this sort of thing, and want to pay the outrageous price for membership, go for it. I just don't think you get what you pay for.

We attended a wedding at the yacht club last night. First of all I must say that the yacht club is lovely with stunning views. If the ambience was the only criteria this would have been a 5-star review. Unfortunately the food and service were just okay. My husband had prime rib which he enjoyed. I had the chicken stuffed with crab which was over cooked and just not an appetizing meal. There were a number of service issues, however the most disappointing was when one of the guests at our table kindly asked to have her prime rib cooked a bit longer. The waitress was not happy and complained out loud about the request. Obviously not a professional response. I wanted to give this feedback so that any other bride and groom has the opportunity to work with the YCSH to ensure their celebration is one that is enjoyed by all of their guests.

It was so easy to work with YCSH for our wedding this June 2019. We live across the country in CA but our families are in the area. Patty made everything so easy for us and everything turned out smoothly and perfectly. The venue has just been remodeled and is so lovely inside and new! We got so many compliments on the food! We did passed hors d'oeuvres and then stations and open seating. The lobster rools, pasta station, and giant shrimp shooters and oyster bar were a hit especially. The layout is fantastic because you have a large dance floor where the DJ was setup, toasts and cake cutting were held, and mingling during cocktail hour could occur. Then there is a huge bar with 360 access so no one waited for a drink. There was a side area with couches and comfy chairs which were perfect for the older guests. Then the other side is setup as a dining room with enough round tables and chairs to fit our abotu 120 guests. You could easily put more tables on the gigantic dance floor and still have tons of dancing room. Finally there was the outdoor big deck where guests could watch the sunset. It was right by the hotels, about a 4 minute ride and they have a wraparound parking lot. We also used the jitney reserved in advance to get us back and forth. The photos on the dock during sunset are going to be so lovely, I can't wait to see them. All in all, the perfect venue for a classy, comfortable wedding.

Review: Stone Harbor Club Level at Beach Club

stone harbor yacht club membership

This post reviews Stone Harbor Club, the concierge level at Beach Club in Walt Disney World. We detail our experience here, with photos and thoughts on the lounge food, amenities, and our patented (not really) Stormalong-Stone Harbor Beach Club Strategy.

Basically, this covers everything for taking advantage of Club Level at Disney’s Beach Club Resort. Consult our separate Disney’s Beach Club Resort Review or our Beach Club v. Yacht Club posts for more basics about the two halves of this large Crescent Lake hotel. For more general thoughts on concierge level at WDW, check out our Is Club Level at Walt Disney World Worth It ? post.

In terms of the core value of staying in the Stone Harbor Club Level, you’ve got 24 hour access to the lounge, which means food during meal hours plus unlimited drinks, including alcohol and espresso. In addition, access to the concierge staff for trip planning and Advance Dining Reservations. We don’t take advantage of planning or ADR-making services, so Club Level for us is all about the lounge–we think that’ll hold true for others, as well.

Moving on, Stone Harbor Club has one of the larger lounges at Walt Disney World, with two adjoining rooms plus a serving area. All told, there’s seating for about 50 people inside, although we never once saw even half that number in the lounge at any given time.

The biggest downside of Stone Harbor Club is the lounge itself. As compared with other concierge level lounges at Walt Disney World, this is the dullest we’ve experienced thus far.

The lounge offers an okay courtyard view (see top photo), but the design here is bland and the decor feels like it could’ve been sourced from the clearance section of Homegoods. This wasn’t a huge deal for me, as I spent most of my time down by Stormalong Bay, popping into the lounge pretty much only for meals.

stone harbor yacht club membership

Stone Harbor Club Lounge itself is open 24 hours and staffed from 7:00 a.m. through 10:00 p.m. Worth emphasizing is that this lounge is well staffed, and the Cast Members are perfectly attentive.

At other lounges, service is spottier with fewer Cast Members available to assist with drinks or table clean-up. The Cast Member to guest ratio here is far better, and we found the service to be superlative.

stone harbor yacht club membership

There are 5 different dining offerings throughout the day, which is standard for Club Level at Walt Disney World.

The day begins with coffee hour from 6:30 a.m. to 7 a.m., followed by continental breakfast from 7 a.m. to 10:30 a.m., light snacks from 11:30 a.m. to 3 p.m., tea and drinks from 3 p.m. to 4:30 p.m., hors d’oeuvres from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m., and desserts & cordials from 8 p.m. to 10 p.m.

stone harbor yacht club membership

Beer and wine are available by request, which we’re told is a permanent change at all Club Level lounges throughout Walt Disney World. This means you can no longer grab a few beers out of the fridge and carry them off to the pool or your room.

Food and drink menus rotate on a daily basis so week-long guests don’t tire of a particular offering. As such, our food photos are best viewed as examples, rather than specific things you can expect to eat.

stone harbor yacht club membership

Breakfast consists of fruits, cheese, meats, and other light options. There are also a couple of rotating hot items, which is actually better than we’ve found at other Club Level lounges around Walt Disney World.

This is the meal most guests will be able to take advantage of the lounge, and even here it’s weak as compared to comparably-priced concierge lounges at non-Disney hotels.

stone harbor yacht club membership

“Light snacks” is the lunch offering, but Disney presumably doesn’t call it lunch because they don’t want guests making a meal of it…and you couldn’t even if you wanted to do so.

Beach Club was a disappointment on this front after a very positive experience with Kilimanjaro Club at Animal Kingdom Lodge , but the Stone Harbor Lounge is more par for the course. On the second day, I ended up making a sandwich at breakfast and stashing it in our fridge for lunch.

stone harbor yacht club membership

The hors d’oeuvres service at Beach Club is the star of the show. In the words of Joey, here’s where you win all your money back!

While Walt Disney World won’t call it dinner because (again) they don’t want guests turning it into a full meal, it unquestionably can serve that role.

Our recent How to Do a Split Stay at Walt Disney World Hotels is a great companion piece to this article. In my estimation, booking a 1-night stay at Beach Club for the end of your trip and taking a late flight out on your last day is perfect.

Alternatively, you could do that night in the middle of a three-resort trip, with a couple of relaxed resort days to decompress amidst your vacation.

stone harbor yacht club membership

In general, Beach Club is the perfect option for a relaxing resort experience, and that’s mostly due to Stormalong Bay.

This pool is the undisputed champ of Walt Disney World hotel pools, with 3 acres including a lazy river, long water slide, and sand-bottom shallow lounging areas. Perfect after eating a ton of build your own mac & cheese ! 😉

stone harbor yacht club membership

What’s nice about staying Club Level here is that you can basically split your time between Stormalong Bay and Stone Harbor Club. For a couple days, you don’t even need to step foot in a Walt Disney World theme park to have a great time, and barely even need to visit your hotel room!

We’ve dubbed our approach the Stormalong-Stone Harbor Beach Club strategy, or SS Harbor Beach Club, for short.

stone harbor yacht club membership

By doing Stone Harbor Club as part of a 1-night stay at Beach Club, you have access to the lounge for the duration of both your arrival and departure days, and also access to the pools on both days.

This means you can arrive early for check-in, head to the lounge for a light meal, and then spend most of the day at Stormalong Bay.

Visit your room when it’s ready, shower, make a quick trip to the lounge for more food, and then enjoy a relaxed evening in the pool (when it’s least crowded because everyone else is at dinner) before late-night desserts.

On check-out day, have a big breakfast, take your bags to Bell Services for storage or transfer, and then spend the rest of the day at Stormalong Bay before returning to the Stone Harbor Club Lounge for food in the evening.

This flawless execution of the SS Harbor Beach Club Strategy is advantageous from a couple of perspectives.

First, running back to the Stone Harbor Club Lounge for food and alcohol is easy–we made it from the pool to the lounge in a matter of minutes, which is less time than it would’ve taken to do a counter service meal.

stone harbor yacht club membership

Second, it’s a great option for lack of better alternatives. We often lament the poor counter service lineup in the entire Crescent Lake area, which is a real problem if you’re not doing exclusively table service meals at the hotel.

Stone Harbor Club Lounge’s offerings are unquestionably superior to everything offered by the area’s quick service options. Basically, for decent food, it’s either Club Level, taking the time to do a table service meal, or walking to Epcot. Not exactly ideal.

stone harbor yacht club membership

During our Club Level stay at Beach Club, our time was split between the Stone Harbor Lounge and Stormalong Bay. We were pretty much only in the room when it was time to sleep, and didn’t spend any time in the parks.

The SS Harbor Beach Club Strategy worked out perfectly for us.

stone harbor yacht club membership

In addition to being able to split time between the pool and lounge, we each could do our own thing to a degree. I’m obsessed with lazy rivers, whereas Sarah isn’t as big of a fan.

I spent a ton of time floating around while Sarah stayed in the Stone Harbor Club Lounge reading and relaxing. If your party includes some who aren’t “pool people” the SS Harbor Beach Club Strategy could likewise be perfect for you.

stone harbor yacht club membership

Methods like the SS Harbor Beach Club are great for getting more bang for your buck, because staying Club Level at Walt Disney World is not cheap.

Rack rates at Beach Club are all over the place, but during ‘regular’ season, a standard room will cost you $575/night. The surcharge for Club Level is ~$125-$200/night extra, depending upon the season.

stone harbor yacht club membership

We strategically booked our stay in the “heart” of off-season, when discounts were at their peak. Even then, we paid over $400/night. This is something I’ve really wanted to do for a while, and Sarah surprised me with it…but I about had a heart attack when she told me the price. It’s difficult, if not impossible, to justify Club Level in terms of value for money; you either do it as a fun splurge or because cost is no issue.

With all of that said, we absolutely loved our Club Level stay at Disney’s Beach Club Resort. Leveraging the SS Harbor Beach Club Strategy was perfect for getting a ton of bang for our buck out of the stay. We’ve been critical of the value proposition that Club Level offers at Walt Disney World, but our recommended approach here allows you to take advantage of the food, convenience, atmosphere, and amazing pool.

The lounge itself is the dullest we’ve experienced thus far at Walt Disney World, but this wasn’t a huge deal at Beach Club because we spent most of our time poolside. For us, it was worth the cost premium for a 1-night splurge. For a family of 4 utilizing the same strategy, it’d be even more valuable. We still have a few Club Levels at Walt Disney World to experience and review, but for us, Beach Club ranks pretty highly thanks to our SS Harbor Beach Club strategy!

Hello everyone, As a family we are not fans of eating fish. As we would like to book Club level at the Beach Club (once its released again) can anyone let me know if they serve a lot of fishy things in their Stone Harbor Club? Your information might help me decide between the Beach Club and the Yacht Club. Thanks for your help 🙂

' src=

Can anyone help please. We have three suites (2bedrooms) booked for our family of 16, in February of 2022 at Beach Club Villas. I would like to upgrade to Club level. Under normal circumstances (non pandemic) does Beach Club Villas have a Club level? Or is it only at the Beach Club Inn?

' src=

The Beach Club, Stormalong Bay, and Stone Harbor Club lounge have provided some of our best Disney memories. I can’t think of a better located, more relaxed resort. Even hanging out in the Solarium listening to the piped in music while reading USA Today is refreshing.

Our only disappointment has been in having evening snacks followed by a buffet at Cape May’s and finding entirely duplicated food selections. However, my wife was pleased by eating crab into infinity.

I love the place and would stay there in indefinitely. 🙂

' src=

Has anyone stayed in a Deluxe room at Beach Club recently? Wondering if it is considered Club Level or not. I see mixed information out there saying it is but on the Disney site it isn’t labeled that way so not sure what to expect when we stay there next month.

' src=

When did you go? I’m curious what peak off-season for this resort is, because it looks like an amazing trip!

' src=

I’d like to know as well. Maybe it was February if he was utilizing the lazy river and rates were low… Tom. What’s your secret?

' src=

Great review and a good idea for a last day splurge. The decor of that lounge though… oof. Awfully generic.

' src=

I totally agree. In general, as much as I loved staying at the Beach Club, I found the whole CL food offerings were generic and nondescript.

' src=

Thanks. Now I have that song in my head.

' src=

Thank you for answering a BURNING question I’ve had after following you for a bit. I was desperate to know if you use a thesaurus because your word variance is impressive. Phew… glad you addressed it. Just so you know, it is appreciated!

' src=

Oddly enough as I was finishing up the article, “In Da Club” came on the radio. Never stayed at a deluxe before, maybe a sign I should try this one out?

' src=

I recently got a birthday upgrade at the Regatta Club and it was my first experience with both a deluxe resort and club level. I was instantly spoiled. I made my money back on Diet Coke alone. The menus are very similar and I think sometimes Yacht Club is cheaper despite sharing the same pool. We never got around to the pool which really bothered me. This sounds like a great strategy for next time.

' src=

Can you do the Stone Harbor Club if you rent DVC points to stay at the Beach Club?

' src=

No, you can’t. The Club-level rooms and offerings are part of the Beach Club’s hotel side. Renting DVC points puts you in the villas, which are great, but all villas are at an equal prestige level. There aren’t any ‘club-level’ DVC villas.

' src=

There are Club Level DVC villas, but only at Animal Kingdom Lodge, and there are very few of them.

' src=

Nice Joey quote, “Here’s where I win my money back”.

If I could afford it, I’d do club level every time. But club level is only offered at deluxe hotels and my wallet is definitely moderate level. However, I do buy lottery tickets, so who knows. Maybe one day. In the meantime, I can live through your blogs.

' src=

My family enjoyed it, but we made the ‘mistake’ of our very first club level stay being at the Grand Floridian, Royal Palm Club and it was unbeatable. We didn’t hate Stone Harbor by any means- and we LOVED Stormalong Bay!!- but we did love RPC more. We are trying Innkeepers Club in the fall and hope that compares to RPC in our hearts!! 😉 I always love your blogs, Tom- you took my photo YEARS ago at a gift shop in GF as I was browsing the Dooney’s, and that is still one of my favorite Disney memories because I’m such a fan of your work! Take care!!

' src=

There are guest showers available for those with late flights or late departures planned on on their check out day. These showers are near the Beaches and Cream restaurant in the poolside restroom area. Towels and soap are provided. Getting the chance to shower after a final day in the hot and sweaty parks or a day marinating in Stormalong Bay is a welcome respite, worthy of a Disney deluxe hotel.

' src=

I have never known this! This is shameful considering that I visit WDW once or twice a year for the past five years, including stays at the Beach Club, and follow many Disney blogs and news sites. Never once have I come across this tip, which would greatly enhance our last day of vacation. Thank you so much for sharing!

' src=

All the Disney hotels, even the values, have showers by the pools, available for late flights or late departures.

' src=

The Stone Harbor & Regatta Clubs must share menus. My recent splurge stay at Yacht Club offered the same options – including that mac & cheese bar! It was a great visit.

' src=

We were just there for a spring break stay. Loved it!!!! I’ve only stayed club level at AKL before and enjoyed stone harbor more. There were just so many more options at dinner. And it was not as crowded, even though we were at SHC a busier week than at AKL. I felt like the staff were more attentive at SHC. At AKL it felt like a pack of wolves descending anytime a plate of food was put out and it was often hard to get the attention of a CM if I wanted a drink.

' src=

My trips to WDW are far-between, but I’ve stayed club level at AKL twice, and really, really like it. I don’t know if it’s just me, but when I see your pics of the Stone Harbor Club, it screams…well, maybe emphatically asserts…Upscale Marriott Lounge at me. I guess if I had a passel of grandkidlets, I might be coerced to do it for the opportunity to Storm-Along, but I guess, resort-wise, club-wise, visual-wise…it’s boring.

' src=

Yep, totally agree.

Stone Harbor Yacht Club and Country Club in vintage postcards

It’s August and you see on Facebook all the fun your friends are having on vacations at the Jersey Shore. Before Facebook, folks turned to the pages of their hometown newspaper to check out their friends’ status.

stone harbor yacht club membership

Some Riverton sailors were drawn to Stone Harbor to compete in regattas and by all accounts, they had their share of successes.

stone harbor yacht club membership

This is a story of Stone Harbor Yacht Club and Country Club illustrated in vintage postcards.

All the Pleasures of Country and Seashore Combined by Harlan B. Radford, Jr.

stone harbor yacht club membership

To celebrate and recognize the first anniversary of the Stone Harbor Yacht Club, in 1912 the South Jersey Realty Company published a very special and colorful postcard expressing, “Greetings from Stone Harbor.”

It proudly announces two new amenities: the Stone Harbor Golf Clubhouse and the Stone Harbor Yacht Club and shrewdly but subtlety tempts the viewer by depicting several recreational opportunities offered at Stone Harbor.

A fish hawk’s nest atop a tall pole and a flagpole trimmed with the American Flag and the yacht club’s unique red and blue burgee frame the layout. Seven vignettes in the encircling rope boast of many activities offered at Stone Harbor including golfing, fishing, racing motor cars on the beach, yacht and a racing motorboat, sunbathing on the beach, and racing sailboats. A Wright Flyer biplane overflies the yacht club. Stone Harbor’s entrepreneurs saw the inclusion of these two facilities as critical to the growth of their enterprise and they were right!

Many shore vacationers today and indeed some Stone Harbor residents are probably unaware that during 1908-1909, the developers placed pilings and bulkheads to create more land for housing and other expansion and dredged the natural basin to enlarge and deepen Snug Harbor.

stone harbor yacht club membership

As a result, both boating and fishing activities increased significantly. In 1909, a group of boating enthusiasts formed the Stone Harbor Yacht Club (SHYC) and incorporated it in January 1910 to foster an interest in sailing and powerboating. Situated on the bay at the point where Snug Harbor basin and the Great Channel converged, it became the focal point for the fledgling resort.

stone harbor yacht club membership

By early 1910, preparations were already underway to erect a handsome clubhouse on Snug Harbor Yacht Basin in the spring by the John Larsen Contracting Company.

It officially opened on July 4, 1910, and its success coincided with some other improvements to the resort including Stone Harbor Water Co., a new boardwalk, an electric plant, and a new hotel.

According to the Aug. 14, 1910 , Philadelphia Inquirer, many yachtsmen pronounced the location, the waterfront, and the racing course “…the best on the Jersey coast,” and its bungalow-type clubhouse was reported to be “…the most artistic in build of any of the yacht clubs along the coast…”

stone harbor yacht club membership

Despite these early accolades, the SHYC encountered financial difficulties at the time of World War I owing to “…a great number of its men in the service, and those engaged in war work,” and, burdened by heavy debt, the club closed its doors in 1918 for several years.

A search of periodicals yielded no reports of regattas, dances, or events at SHYC for the years 1919-1927 and only one outboard race in 1928.

stone harbor yacht club membership

In 1929, on the threshold of the Great Depression, a new group of investors intervened, purchased the property, reorganized, and renovated the clubhouse.

stone harbor yacht club membership

They renamed it “The Yacht Club of Stone Harbor” (YCSH), the name used today, and opened for business with a regatta and a dance on August 3, 1929. Dancing in the Grand Ballroom and fine dining at the restaurant were popular mainstays of the club.

The following fifteen vintage postcards illustrate some milestones in the early history of Stone Harbor Yacht Club.

Stone Harbor Yacht Club, Stone Harbor, N.J. captures both the front door and the overhanging porte-cochere passageway to let vehicles pass under for access to the clubhouse. Most other postcard images show the clubhouse with water in front from the more picturesque Snug Harbor perspective. This view was part of a very scarce folio, or souvenir folder, consisting of multiple early black and white views of Stone Harbor.

One postcard postmarked on August 31, 1914, bears the following hand-written message: “This is a peach of a place. I’m picking out our lot today, tell Pa I’m staying with the Riters’ & having a very nice time. Paul.” Two of the images are examples of rare real photo postcards or RPPCs.

Stone Harbor Country Club was located on the mainland just minutes away from the town of Stone Harbor. These last four circa 1912-15 era postcards feature the Country Club that boasted having a 45-acre 9-hole golf course.

stone harbor yacht club membership

Here is a frontal view of the wooden shingle-sided Stone Harbor Country Club featuring a sizable open front porch.

Atop the tall pole immediately to the right of the clubhouse is a fish hawk’s nest. Such pole-mounted nests like this were rather common and visible throughout parts of the South Jersey seashore and the coastal waterway.

stone harbor yacht club membership

People enjoy a game of golf at the Country Club. The advent of the new trolley line between Stone Harbor and Cape May Court House made the Country Club especially convenient according to the caption on the back of this very old card.

stone harbor yacht club membership

In this view of the Country Club, we see several individuals relaxing and seated on the front steps and in the shade on the front porch. Once more, there’s that pole with the fish hawk’s nest.

The caption on the reverse side of this postcard promotes all the various sports activities that were available then, including golf, along with tennis, and even trapshooting.

stone harbor yacht club membership

This full-color 1918 postmarked card depicts some very special occasion with a throng of well-dressed people and an abundance of American flags, possibly taken during the official opening of the Country Club or the much-celebrated Gala Week activities that took place in early July of 1911.

Both the Yacht Club and the Country Club figured in the early development and ongoing success of the community now referred to as “The Seashore At Its Best,” namely Stone Harbor!

How Much is a Yacht Club Membership? 3 Common Price Ranges

Dinner table set onboard a yacht with the text "how much is a yacht club membership?" superimposed over the image

The cost of an annual yacht club membership can vary widely depending on several factors, such as the location of the club, the amenities offered, the exclusivity of the membership, and the size of the yacht being accommodated. We’ve compiled a set of guidelines below to help you estimate what you can expect to pay for an annual yacht club membership.

Local or Less Exclusive Yacht Clubs

Afternoon party at a local yacht club

These clubs might offer basic amenities such as docking facilities, a clubhouse, and some social events. Annual fees can range from a few hundred to a few thousand dollars. Membership fees could be as low as $500 to $2,000 per year.

Mid-Range Yacht Clubs:

Mid-range yacht club facility

These clubs may offer more extensive amenities, including high-quality dining facilities, repair and maintenance services, fitness centers, and a busy calendar of social and boating activities. Annual fees for these clubs can range from $3,000 to $10,000 or more.

Prestigious or Exclusive Yacht Clubs

The most exclusive yacht clubs, often located in prime locations with extensive facilities and services, can have annual membership fees that are significantly higher. These can range from $10,000 to $30,000 or more per year, with some of the most elite clubs costing even more. Additionally, these clubs might have initiation fees that can range from tens of thousands to hundreds of thousands of dollars.

It’s also important to note that many yacht clubs have additional costs beyond the annual membership dues. These can include initiation fees for new members, monthly minimum spending requirements at the club’s facilities, and additional fees for docking, storage, and maintenance services.

Additional Considerations

Some yacht clubs require yacht ownership as a prerequisite before being accepted into the club. Hence, while the yacht club membership itself might only be between $500 and $2,000, the true price of a yacht club membership might be tied to the cost of ownership of your yacht as well.

Bottom Line: Simply Ask If Interested

If you’re interested in joining a yacht club, make a list of yacht clubs that you might be interested in joining, and reach out to them via email or phone to get the most accurate and up-to-date information. Most yacht club members are quite friendly and are willing to help those who are interested in joining.

We wish you good luck in your yacht club search, and hope that you were able to find this article helpful.
