Culture By Photo by King and Grove

With an ambiance centered around summer activities ranging from ping pong to kiteboarding and amenities ranging from a sand-filled pool to an open-air beer garden, staying at Ruschmeyer’s ($250+) is a bit like walking onto the set of Wet Hot American Summer. Even the blondes walking in from the beaches seem to have an Elizabeth Bank’s aura about them, which you’ll appreciate when your soaking in live music performances and cocktails or housing their abundance of fresh, local seafood. Unpretentious designer decor, complimentary breakfast and a healthy mix of nostalgia and trend make Ruschmeyer’s a perfect weekend getaway. There are 20 rooms ranging from doubles to suites — just don’t call it a boutique hotel.
