Ruschmeyers Hotel Review

Montauk, 18-08-2011

The people behind King & Grove recently renovated a lakeside woodland lodge dating from the early 50s.

It reopened this summer as Ruschmeyer’s, a hotel that evokes feelings of a grown-up summer camp. Understated nautical details feature throughout, but particularly in the Electric Eel where walls are lined with sails and drawings of boats. Simple wooden furniture ensures a modern yet warm atmosphere.

The 19 guestrooms that are dotted around a central garden are kept simple, with panelled walls painted white and curtains strung like sails.

Chairs come in the shape of hammocks and beds are finished off with wicker-threaded headboards and fine linens from Frette.

Details like unusual bronze lights and nostalgic imagery enhance the feeling of escapism that the rooms envoke. Images via King & Grove.
