A Behind-The-Scenes Look At Ruschmeyer's, The Fashion Crowd's New Summer Hotel Hangout

If the essence of haute-hipster could be bottled, it might smell something like the Apothia Soul candle burning in Ruschmeyer's hotel lobby. One of the most highly-anticipated hotel openings this summer, the mini-Montauk resort has, if possible, exceeded its hype, boasting a rotating crew of bold-faced NYC creatives (Waris, Ben Watts, Johan Lindeberg), a restaurant that's already a foodie fave, and decor best described as summer camp gone glam by way of a former Domino reader that wouldn't say no to the occasional joint. Because we're so obsessed, we asked Ruschmeyer's owner Ben Pundole (boyfriend of R29 It-girl Chelsea Leyland, who gave us her own spin on the Hamptons' hangout) to take us on a private photo tour of the property, with captions of his favorite spots. And, if you're feeling the need to get on the next LIRR to Montauk, don't worry about a reservation at this booked-out hostelry—we got you! R29 Reserve is letting you guys in on the perfect opportunity to use those vacation days, with a Hamptons get-away that's exclusive to us. Act fast—before we do.
