Summer Camp Chic: Ruschmeyer’s in Montauk

An idyllic retreat that evokes memories of summer camp, the recently renovated Ruschmeyer’s hotel, restaurant and bar in Montauk has become a popular destination. Located on three acres of lakeside woodland, guests have good reason to enjoy being both inside and outside the property: the team behind Fat Radish serves fresh, local food in the main restaurant, the interior decor exudes a midcentury vibe (the property was originally built in 1952), and the grand lawn serves as a setting for musical performances. Various outdoor activities are also planned for guests to enjoy the surrounding grandeur. To learn more, visit:

I agree with Tamara and Siusaidh. Even after giving Care2 the benefit of the doubt, and trying to justify it as a good example to the rest of the hospitality industry, I still only see an advertisement for a particular resort.

Maybe that's how Remodelista makes their magazine affordable, but reposting these "articles" here under the heading of "Healthy Living / Garden & Nature / Environment" is a bit of a stretch.
