Ruschmeyer’s, Montauk, NY

4 of 21

This Eisenhower-era Montauk motel gone mod is near the shores of Fort Pond, but just a five-minute beach-cruiser ride from the surfer-stoked bonfires of Ditch Plains Beach (bikes for hire are on the premises). The cedar-plank walls, hammocks, and wicker furniture are part of the 1950s beach-holiday lure, as are bingo nights, fresh clam pizzas, and dance-offs. But the young and energetic crowd—including plenty of creative New Yorkers—keeps the place feeling especially contemporary. kingandgrove.com
