Surf Lodge, Long Island: The Surf Lodge has made its home at the eastern point of Long Island and is by far the most design-driven place to stay in the small fishing town of Montauk. Sun-bleached driftwood, vintage patterns, tongue-and-groove panelling and colourful art by surfers and surf fans set the scene. The restaurant serves freshly-caught seafood, while the bar turns up the volume with live music and DJs throughout the summer.
