Hotels & Lodging: Ruschmeyer’s in Montauk

This year's Montauk sensation is the newly opened Ruschmeyer’s, a 19-room hotel, restaurant, and bar located on three acres of lakeside woodland. The original property was built in 1952; designer and co-owner Robert McKinley (of the Montauk Surf Lodge) has stayed true to that era, creating interiors featuring a midcentury nautical vibe. Factor in the food (from the team behind Fat Radish), and the hip factor soars even higher. Go to Ruschmeyer's for more information; see a video tour of Ruschmeyer's with designer Robert McKinley at The Feast.
