About Ruschmeyer's

Evocative of a period nautical summer camp, Ruschmeyer’s was originally built in 1952 on three lush acres of lakeside woodlands in Montauk, Long Island. The recently renovated cabin-inspired guestrooms circle a central lawn known as The Magic Garden, with picnic tables, hammocks, and grills designed for both organized and spontaneous leisure. Ruschmeyer’s offers a range of activities from bicycling to fishing, ping pong,  paddle boarding and yoga, with lawn games and bubbles for the kids, along with a rotating series of musical performances, theater and artists-in-residence. The culinary team behind The Smile in Manhattan, serves seafood dishes with fresh local ingredients in the main restaurant and outdoors in the garden, while the Electric Eel delivers endless nights of dancing and classic maritime cocktails.
