Adult Summer Camp in Montauk? Yes, please!

Robert McKinley and Ben Pundole are the dynamic duo behind Montauk’s latest hotel-cum-hotspot, Ruschmeyer’s.

While their sister property, The Surf Lodge, known as the place to see-and-be-seen in Montauk (and The Hamptons for that matter), Ruschmeyer’s also draws a hip crowd with beach-chic interior design, a seafood-centric restaurant helmed by the team behind NYC eateries Fat Radish and Silkstone and late night dancing at the Electric Eel. Housed in a renovated building from 1952 that sits atop three acres of greenery, the hotel was designed to resemble a “nautical summer camp.” The guest rooms surround a central lawn outfitted with a teepee and grills, along with the whimsically lit Magic Garden that draws al fresco diners and ping pong lovers alike. Ruschmeyer’s hones in on the camp theme by organizing an array of activities such as bike riding, yoga, kite boarding and paddle boarding. -Christina Mannatt
