Ruschmeyer’s hotel, a revamped Fifties estate, is a summer camper’s dream. Mid-century modern couches and chairs mingle with nautical details such as criss-crossed roped-lined walls and tailored sail cloth. After a feast in the Manhattan-grade restaurant, slink to the low-lit Electric Eel Disco, where the leather banquettes let you lounge, but the DJ’s beats urge you to dance all night long. Ruschmeyer’s is the coolest camp you never went to, but always fantasised about.
Each room comes with its own kelly green compass, so you won’t get lost on the hiking trails. We love the minibar, actually a wicker picnic basket, packed with a canteen, a S’more-making kit, bubbles, a balsa wood glider, Mast Brothers Chocolate and more goodies.
