They gave us the wedding of our dreams! Loved working with Kaitlyn, Bretlin and Denise. Immaculate service, beautiful location and delicious food. We even got pictures on a yacht!!!! It’s not cheap, but worth every penny.Sent on 09/24/2018

My wedding was phenomenal!! Gurney's Montauk Yacht Club is an absolutely stunning venue and hotel. The Farmhouse Ballroom is so gorgeous! My guests absolutely loved the indoor/outdoor feel with the bar outside and the dancing and tables inside. I was supposed to get married outside but it was a really windy day. Getting married in the farmhouse ballroom blew my mind away, though! You can't go wrong with any of the ceremony/cocktail hour locations. The venue completely fulfilled (and exceeded my expectations)! Bretlin worked with me every step of the way as I made a ton of changes, Kaitlyn answered everyone of my million questions, and Denice did a wonderful job arranging everything the day of. Donovan was an amazing banquet coordinator and the wait staff was so nice and so attentive. The drinks were strong, the food was great and the wedding day went super smooth. I could not have asked for a better day!Sent on 10/01/2018

We had our Rehearsal Dinner at the Montauk Yacht Club and stayed here for our wedding weekend and it was perfect. Everyone we encountered and worked with were helpful and friendly and the dinner was amazing! We had the Italian buffet with an open bar and it was perfect, our guests really enjoyed the food.Sent on 07/20/2015
The event was held in their Vanderbilt Room on the second floor and had a private balcony which everyone enjoyed taking pictures on and looking out onto the beautiful property.
We highly recommend the Montauk Yacht Club for your event in Montauk!
Love, Stefanie and Daniel Valenti
