Potomac River near Stratford Landing

The Mount Vernon Yacht Club (MVYC) is on Dogue Creek, off the Potomac River. The clubhouse at MVYC is just two miles from George Washington’s Mount Vernon Mansion. MVYC was incorporated in June 1956, as a private, not-for-profit club. The developers of Yacht Haven Estates, led by Harley “Bud” Fraley, deeded the land and created a private lagoon for a swimming and boating club serving the local area. Today, MVYC’s 230 member families enjoy one of the best-kept secrets on the Potomac River.

MVYC is about tradition, friendship, family and good times with fellow members. Beautiful well kept facilities provide an unparalleled view of the Potomac River from the clubhouse, pool and marina with an atmosphere of tranquility.

The Club is limited to a total of 230 family memberships divided into two categories – Active and Honorary members.

Active members pay dues (which covers all of their immediate family), enjoy all privileges of the Club, they have a vote on all Club matters (one vote per family) and are eligible to hold Club office.

Honorary members (including their immediate family) are limited to those who have rendered special service to the Club. They enjoy all privileges of the Club; however they are not required to pay dues, they do not have a vote and may not hold Club office.

Club members who are property owners in Yacht Haven Estates also have additional rights to vote on certain matters that might affect the character or size of the Club.
