Hotel Description

Plenty of New Yorkers seem to think Long Island ends at the Hamptons — and the people of Montauk would like to keep it that way. The Surf Lodge isn’t meant to be an extension of the stretch-limo scene, but a window into an older, more authentic Long Island, a place where fishermen and surfers rub elbows, and champagne is still for occasions less common than the setting of the sun.

Of course, despite the bohemian-rustic look and the relentlessly casual vibe of the place, this is still a boutique hotel, one with a bar that’s stylish, if unpretentiously so, and with a quality modern restaurant, applying the expertise of the Australian chef Chris Rendell to the local fresh-caught seafood.

The rooms are comfortable, but not needlessly luxe, and they charmingly mix modern elements and rough-edged motel-chic. Cocktails are served out on the deck, with views of the sunset over the pond — and the beach is just a half-mile away, in case you actually do want to get some surfing in. Absolute surf-shack purists might find it a bit too tightly composed, but they’re likely too busy hand-carving their wooden longboards to register their objections. Long Island desperately needed something a bit rustic, a bit unpolished, and the Surf Lodge is it.

Please note: The Surf Lodge is a seasonal hotel, open annually from early May through the end of September.

How to get there:

The Surf Lodge is located at the far end of Long Island, a little over three hours’ drive from Manhattan and slightly less from JFK and LaGuardia airports. Please contact customerservice@tablethotels.com to arrange airport transfers.
