"We've spent the better part of 20 years staying on the Out Islands, and The Boathouse is really a special place. With 360 degree views of the bay and a bit of the ocean (contrary to another review, you can, in fact, see the ocean from the deck), it's almost like you're staying in a really cozy treehouse–except the bed is wonderful, and you have the benefit of a huge kitchen and an outdoor shower.
In terms of food, gourmet meals are not why you go to the islands, but Da Smoke Pot, Shanna's Cove, and produce from Danny are all great recommendations. Like others, we found it hard to tear ourselves away and did most of our own cooking at the house. If you plan your trip well (ask when the food boat comes in!), there is plenty to choose from at the grocery store. It's not Whole Foods, so if you need something specific, bring it. We forgot coffee (!) and had to make due with Maxwell House.
Other features that are worth noting: a washer and dryer (and a drying line) were so great to have at our disposal, the truck rental is one of the best cars we've ever had on an Out Island, and the caretakers from Pigeon Cay, Leslie and Ned, are wonderful, close by, and can help you with virtually anything you need.
And the hut on the beach–we virtually lived there! It was so nice to have a large, shaded area, just steps from that gorgeous water."
