Nestled atop Signal Hill, Montauk Manor is a brown-and-white 88-year-old national landmark.
Enter the Tudor-style resort hotel, built by multimillionaire Carl Fisher in 1927, and you’ll be transported back to the age of Gatsby. Couches are arranged in nooks around a fireplace and in front of windows in The Grand Foyer that still looks like it did when it was first built. Chandeliers hang from the ceiling, and potted palm trees and flowers line the floor.
The three-story building contains 140 condominium apartments, ranging from studios to three-bedrooms, on the second and third floors. Every room is decorated differently. Some have patios or balconies and skylights. There’s a day spa, indoor pool, Tre Bella Restaurant and the brand-new La Fine, which will be open this summer.
This time of year, there’s no need to stay inside, though. Take a dip in the 44×22 foot outdoor pool, which can be heated if the temperatures drop. Walk the 12 acres of perfectly manicured land, or just sit on a chaise and take in the view. Calling it breathtaking and unforgettable does not do it justice.
If you can pull yourself away, there are three tennis courts, where group and private lessons are offered for children and adults, a golf driving range and putting green, shuffle board court and bocci court.
