Lodging (With The Boat)

The entire WithTheBoat.com project revolves around the lodging section of this website. If you are like the founder of this website, Robert Kothe, and your boat is mobile enough to trailer yet too small to sleep on comfortably than this page is for you. You can be with the boat away from home but sleep in a roomier hotel / motel room overnight.

If your boat is large enough to sleep on, sometimes you want a nice shower in a room that is not rocking. Perhaps you are meeting up with extended family. There are many reasons why cruisers would want lodging with the boat.

Suffolk County, NY Hotels / Motels with Docks

It took Robert Kothe, founder of this website, months to do research and finally found somewhere to bring the boat to celebrate his wife’s birthday. It was a hotel that was owned by a working boat yard. They also have a boat ramp and overnight transient docks. That hotel was Heron Suites.

It took Robert Kothe, founder of this website, months to do research and finally found somewhere to bring the boat to celebrate his wife’s birthday. It was a hotel that was owned by a working boat yard. They also have a boat ramp and overnight transient docks.

While other Yelp reviews talk about an active boatyard next door, Robert Kothe actually took advantage of it when the boat needed an emergency repair. The mechanic walked to the parts distributor next door and within an hour, a new powerpack was installed on the engine.

At the time Heron Suites was owned by Port of Egypt marina. We believe the hotel was separated and now offer dock service through Albertson Marine. Port of Egypt is still next door so they probably still offer transient docks and launch services.

recommend Albertson as a marina

J & S Reeve Cottages

28 White's Ln, Aquebogue, NY 11931


Sometimes we find properties by using google maps and see if there are any fringe properties with docks listed as lodging facilities. One such property we are looking into now is J & S Reeve Cottages. The website says they have docks. We need to confirm if the docks can be rented during your stay.

There is a boat ramp in the next cove over. Jamesport State boat Ramp: 1207 Peconic Bay Blvd, Riverhead, NY 11901

Port Jefferson Marina

Port Jefferson Marina is very close to Danfords. For a non-resident the ramp fees are a bit pricey. If you are familiar with the area please contact us with a more cost effective way to launch around Port Jefferson. 

update: 3/3/21 My last check seems to indicate that the non-resident round trip ramp fee may have come down. The website indicated it is $35 Round trip. When I first researched this it looked like it was around $80. That is a big difference. I guess the 2021 season has to start to confirm accuracy.

Fire Island

This one is a bit of a connect the dots situation. Our goal was to list hotels with docks. Here’s the funny thing about parts of Fire Island, most of fire island do not allow cars. Some hotels use golf carts to shuttle around the guests. So therefore, the connect the dots moment is that you simply need to connect the marinas to the hotels and presto, you have a “With the Boat” vacation.


Depending on the size of your boat, a hotel is not necessary. Cruisers can stay on their boats and enjoy fire island from the amenities of the marina.

Ultimately, we will have all Long Island New York but it the process of buying the domain name we came across a company that is almost doing what we intended. All of their rentals are out of New York but here is the link anyway:


This was a great discovery. This website does bookings for transient boaters all over the country and especially the long Island area. It is easy to use and has done its homework to include amenities, including gas and moorings.
