spotted: the surf lodge.
happy summer everyone! it’s leslie again from spotted sf. i hope you’re away adventuring somewhere or planning some great upcoming escapes. i just returned from the land of fire and ice (which i’ll be sharing on a future post) and now i’m desperately seeking warmer weather and some fun in the sun! maybe like my last summer. this same time last year i retreated to the east coast and ventured out to montauk. located just about 100 miles from nyc, it’s an oceanfront playground full of amazing sites, plenty of relaxation, outdoor activities, and yummy fresh seafood. while there i camped out at this darling place: the surf lodge.
getting to the surf lodge was quite easy: i took the hamptons train to the very last stop and and it’s a quick 10 min walk from there. you can rent a car to explore the island or borrow a bike and hop on/off the train to get around as i did. and the lodge is also near the town center, too. onsite it is equipped with the essentials, including a bar, restaurant, plenty of lounging areas and a boutique full of chic beachwear and accessories. you don’t have to surf to stay here, but i sure wish i knew how to! it looks likes so much fun and they publish the surf report each morning. since i was seeking a quiet escape for my trip, i stayed during the earlier part of the week. but if nightlife and live music is what you’re in the mood for, join the festivities with the weekend crowd or come up for concert nights.
