The Five-Point Weekend Escape Plan

Explore Modern Montauk

A crush of newly renovated hotels, surfer-chic boutiques, and off-the-beaten-path seafood spots are revitalizing the classic Long Island beach town.


1. Where to Stay

Enjoy waterfront views and outdoor concerts at the Surf Lodge.  

Watch Sunday-night surf movies beside the outdoor fire pit at the Surf Lodge (from $350), a hotel known for its social vibe and summer concert series; acts like the Like (June 26) and Daniel Merriweather (July 10) play every weekend on the deck overlooking Fort Pond. In July, a food stand will supply fish tacos and lobster rolls to late-night revelers until 3 a.m.

Unwind in the pristine, all-white rooms at Solé East’s Resort (from $210), where the seven garden cabana suites were renovated last year. Listen to the mellow, beachy tunes of the on-site D.J. from your lounge chair or yoga deck in the landscaped garden.

Admire unobstructed views of Lake Montauk from your private balcony at the Montauk Yacht Club Resort & Marina (from $279), fully renovated for its 80th birthday last summer. The nautical theme carries throughout the hotel, from the navy-and-white-striped room décor to the hour-long deep-tissue “yachter’s massage” ($125) at the spa.
