Head from your room directly to morning yoga class on the sprawling green lawn at the East Deck Motel (from $210), located right on Ditch Plains. The lodgings are basic yet clean, but booking can be hard to come by since you have to send a deposit through the mail.
Wander into the Magic Garden at Ruschmeyer’s (from $195), a vast green space that’s perfect for chilling out in teepees, playing Ping-Pong, or lounging at movie night. The rooms are design-conscious and comfortable, with Moroccan rugs, wicker headboards, and cedar-plank walls. The mellow vibe continues in the morning, with a complimentary breakfast of fresh-pressed juices, Greek yogurt, and avocado toast.
Choose the most stylish new locale in town, the Montauk Beach House (from $479), which is opening for its first full summer this season. The rooms are all white or charcoal gray with leather loungers, coffee-table books, and modern art. This year, there’ll be silver costumed “mermaids” swimming in the pool for family photo ops and restored sixties Vespas for guests to use.
