Marram Montauk is a standard beach hotel located on the shores of the Atlantic Ocean, at the East end of the Montauk’s beach hotel strip. It’s just an easy walk to Montauk Village, where you can find countless restaurants and local stores. “Nothing between you and the sand”, like they say!

Fall was starting and I hadn’t enjoyed the sun that much during the summer time. And, thankfully the sun was still shining, so why not go to the beach? My friend suggested a trip to the Hamptons!

We didn’t have any hotel in mind so we “googled” it. For 3 days we researched websites and exchanging e-mails. We finally decided to stay at a hotel in Montauk instead of in the central part of the Hamptons. It’s more rustic and a little bit cheaper. Among all choices we had, we picked an upper ocean view quad at the Marram Montauk Hotel. This hotel offers numerous amenities and activities and it was just what I was looking for.

That being said, let’s get straight to the point:

Marram Montauk is a standard beach hotel located on the shores of the Atlantic Ocean, at the East end of the Montauk Beach hotel strip. It’s just an easy walk to Montauk Village, where you can find countless restaurants and great local stores. One of the highlights is getting to the beach through the wooden stairs. It’s amazing. Wild and fancy at the same time. “Nothing between you and the sand”, like they enjoy saying!

The hotel has around 100 rooms from standard to beachfront suites, all with balconies. The rooms are decorated in grey and white colors, with a kitchenette where you’ll find a sink, coffee maker, a small fridge, etc…

Breakfast is not included, but they have the A.T. Eatery – a full service kitchen serving breakfast and lunch. Managed by chef Robert Prado, the Eatery provides you with everything from classic sandwiches to more sophisticated dishes. All beach-friendly too. A.T. Eatery is open every day from 7am – 6pm and you can find the menu on the website.

However, you can also prepare something for yourself in the room and enjoy it on the cozy benches at the balcony.

The Marram Montauk Hotel offers a variety of outdoors activities such as backyard games, picnic areas, live music (seasonal), bonfires, etc.

You can also book surf and paddle board lessons. Plus, if you’re into yoga, you can head to the swimming pool area in the morning and get ready for their free class! Classes depend on the weather, but you can check details at the reception. Their classes are quite famous around there.

If you enjoy shopping, the hotel also has a small boutique to entertain you. NIBI MTK is a beachwear store by the designer Kristin Sheeler. “Nibi” means water in the original language people used to speak in the village of Montauk. You’ll also be able to find some vintage pieces and accessories.

In addition, the hotel also provides wifi, laundry facilities, a gym and a lounge with a ping-pong table and arcade games. Furthermore, you’ll find eco-friendly bath amenities and 300-thread count Frette bedding.

We loved the weekend and the beautiful nature views we could enjoy from our own balcony.

In sum, we had a great time in the town and was impressed with all the amenities the hotel provided. Of course, the staff was very friendly and getting to the beach through the super cute staircase, was definitely one of the coolest things.

I’m definitely going back there, next summer, with more friends! Hope to see you there too. Let us know about your plans and if you need any help in organizing this trip! For corporate requests for your team or clients, contact our experts.

Note: The hotel closes during off season, so be sure to send them an email and stay up to date with the upcoming season!

Location: 21 Oceanview Terrace, Montauk

Note: Hotel was formally called Atlantic Terrace. Recently it was renamed to Marram Montauk.

We are always looking for and exploring unique properties in upstate New York to share with you. Cedar Lakes Estate is certainly on the top of our list.

We also know that many people aren’t really sure where to go or what to do during the harsh New York winter, so we decided to help out!

This past weekend, we packed our bags and headed upstate to stay at a place called Cedar Lakes Estate. We’ve been following closely experiences they’ve been creating for guests and couldn’t wait anymore to go and explore!

Located in the heart of our gorgeous Hudson Valley, Cedar Lakes Estate’s story is quite special.

To start, the property is family owned. A few years back, the sisters Stephanie and Lisa Karvellas, that have countless unforgettable childhood memories at the Estate, decided to share the property not only with friends, but with outside guests.

They started working and organizing everything, building new rooms and cabins and renovating what needed a fresh look. In no time, they got so much organic press that not only people started reaching out, but also super young companies like Uber and Google decided to host team gatherings and activities during the year.

Below a short video of our experience:

The property is really something! You’ll be able to indulge in their 500 acres with 2 lakes, 2 pools, miles of hiking trails, boats, tennis, basketball courts, football fields, ziplines, and the BLOB.


Let’s talk about their accommodations!

They have rooms for every style, pocket and need!

The Bluebird Cottage and the Lakeside Cottage are great for a complete experience. These cottages boast with spacious formats, king-size beds and private patios. Plus, each one has its own cool amenities like full modern kitchen, heated stone floors, fireplace, living room and/or dining area.

In addition, the 10 Sleepy Pine Cottages are under a beautiful cluster of pine trees! It offers one queen or two full size beds, rain shower, Nespresso machine and mini bar. Perfect in size.

Furthermore, the Poolside Cabana is fully equipped with a fireplace, washer/dryer, with access to pool area, patio, outdoor wet bar and refrigerator, gazebo (extra bathroom in gazebo) and it’s also pet-friendly!

The Garden Suite is perfect for families, or for the more demanding couples. It has a fully equipped din-in kitchen, a fireplace with sitting area and a beautiful, large bathroom.

And, their option for Glamping (glamour camping), is called Campstyle. This communal house can host up to 43 people common room seating areas and a kitchen. Don’t worry, the bathrooms are just as nice as the other options above, and also offer complimentary toiletries (shampoo, conditioner and body wash).

Finally, the Rustic Cabins are for people that really have camp roots with bunk beds, ceiling fans and a communal bathhouse. But, they offer fresh linens and towels!

Now, not many people know or can even imagine how many activities are available at properties upstate.

Cedar Lakes Estate is perfect not only in the summer time, but also during winter.

As they explain:

“Guests have full access to all that the grounds has to offer, including the use of the lakes, pools, hiking and biking trails, bonfire pits, tennis and basketball courts. With outdoor activities like The Blob, “drive in” movies under the stars, and guided yoga classes, we have everything needed for a memorable and refreshing getaway.”

Super cool right?

So if you’re the adventurer type, sporty-type or lets-chill-type, they have it all. Swimming, fishing, countless sports and games – basketball, tennis, volleyball, kickball, softball and football; plus, everyone’s favorite lawn games, like bocce, horseshoes, cornhole and ladder toss. Phiuf! What a list!

Close by the property, you can take some time to explore too. The region offers restaurants, breweries, farms, antiquing, markets, distilleries, artisan shops, ski mountains, and breathtaking hikes.


You might be asking…but what about the food and drinks!?

Where do we begin? We had a delicious, tasty experience and loved it all.

They have a garden where, not only they grow their own produce, but they also host summer outdoor dining experiences.

“Walk into our expansive Chef’s Garden and see where it all begins. The garden charms with its white picket fence and twinkling lights as we bring out the season’s best, harvested right beyond your feet. A 50-person farm table sits on a reclaimed brick patio in the center of the garden for a truly farm-to-table experience under the stars inside this expansive 4,000 square foot wonderland.”

“This Chef’s garden is a testament to our farm-to-table values, as we tailor our crops each season to grow produce specifically for the menus chosen by our clients. Whatever we cannot grow or make ourselves is sourced from our small-town farmer neighbors. We believe that cultivating a network of local purveyors ensures the most outstanding seasonal fare for your event.”

During winter, they put together a Après CLE Party and some really private Pop Up Dinners that gathers the coolest crowd from NYC and neighbor towns! The menu is to-die-for!

The Après CLE party is every Saturday, from 12pm – 6pm.

You can expect the grooviest tunes, a group of happy campers, old school toboggans, giant jenga, hot hot hot crackling fires paired with some yummy spiked hot cocoa!

We all know how cold upstate New York can get, but this party will certainly keep you pretty warm! From entertaining conversations, gorgeous folks and a bonfire pit that will be roaring all day long, you won’t want to leave!

You can also hop inside the Canteen every now and then, for some melty grilled cheeses, fig and brie hot sandwiches and some boozy hot beverages!

If you enjoy it, and still want to hang around for more, don’t forget about their multi-course Pop Up Dinners that happens 1 Saturday every month!

Just so you can get an idea of what these dinners look like, see the menu from our dinner:

  • Amouse Bouche: Roasted breakfast radish, sorrel butter, crispy white anchovy
  • First Dish: Diver scallop carpaccio, cured olive labneh, preserved winter citrus, charred fennel and toasted red millet. For Vegetarians, they substituted the scallops for potatoes.

Skydiving In New York: If You Love A Challenge, Head Upstate

Day Trips and Travel Skydiving Malone Parachute Club Vermont by William Klein for Harpers Bazaar

Many people that come to NY or even live here, have no idea of the beautiful upstate New York’s nature scene is. One of our Contributors, Marcela Brasil, decided to go upstate – border with Vermont – for a thrilling and adventurous experience: Skydiving in New York!

Many people that come to NY for the first time, or that dream about coming to visit this beautiful concrete jungle, and even people that have been here countless times, have no idea of the beauty of upstate New York.

The drive is breathtaking with surprising views – so different from the City. Plus, places are not as far as you might initially think. You can hike, bike, practice for your upcoming marathon, picnic, do kayaking, camp and a huge list of other activities.

Renting a car is far from being a hassle, since it’s quite easy with rates as low as $50-$60/day, or even rates of $150/day (not bad at all!) for cars like Range Rovers and Porsche Cayenne, with our Partners, to drive in great style!

Take a look at what Marcela thought about her exciting skydiving experience:

“Door is open,” the pilot said. From the tiny airplane window all I could see were clouds. It was cold and windy, and I am not going to lie: I wanted to give up. But…it was too late as I could hear the clinging of the hooks that would hold the instructor and I together. Each click, making the latches tighter and tighter.

I was already high up in the sky, wearing a bulky unflattering skydiving suit and getting ready for the big jump into Champlain Valley, in upstate New York.

Suddenly, I was free falling from 12,000 feet above the ground. It lasted nearly a minute, but it definitely felt longer.

Back flips and a few 360-degree free-fall turns to spicy it up a bit were part of the show, as if skydiving itself wasn’t radical enough.

The fear of the free fall disappeared as I started appreciating the mind-blowing view of the North Country and its picturesque and beautiful landscapes. All I could feel up there was an inexpressible sensation of peace and freedom, as I felt fully isolated from the world.

New York State is way bigger than the crazy Big Apple, with its endless skyscrapers and overcrowded touristic spots. Whoever desires to see breathtaking landscapes, a quick drive to places located in upstate New York is essential.

I lived for many years in Plattsburgh, a four-hour drive from New York City, and located nearby the Canadian border. Upstate New York was the place I chose to skydive, and this choice couldn’t have been better. The North Country’s scenic views definitely sets an impression to anyone.

Driving upstate is so far the most beautiful drive I ever did — and I’ve driven all through the West Coast before! It doesn’t matter which season it is, I am sure you will be as amazed, as I always am. My favorite season to enjoy the driving view is the Fall, since you can experience the colorful fall foliage from far up.

Talking about seasons, skydiving is a different experience depending on the season as well. Due to super low temperatures, it is usually closed during the Winter and early Spring.

When I skydived, it was during the first few weeks into Fall, and the leaves were still pretty green. I am planning on doing it again but, this time, as soon as the leaves start falling. I am sure it will be a thrilling experience, too!

Whenever I get overwhelmed from the busy New Yorker life, I get a car and drive North to clear up my mind or to just breathe some fresh air.

I’m sure I’m not alone on these urges!

If that doesn’t work, I’ll put on a bulky flight suit, pretend I’m not afraid of height and simply jump out of an airplane from 12,000 feet, and disconnect with the world to reconnect with my inner self.

Below are a few places you can contact to Skydive upstate, but the one I went to was Malone Parachute Club.

I paid $220 for the jump and it was worth every-single-dollar! There are other prices/options too.

So, you might want to add onto your bucket list: Skydiving in New York!

Tastings In New York And Upstate That Will Blow Your Mind

Dining Red Hook Winery Tastings Glamour Mag Outdoor

We contribute with Glamour Brazil magazine and on this post we wrote about great spots for tastings in New York and Upstate.

Here is the Portuguese version and below, the English version:

New York is not only a perfect place for people who love art, shows, nightlife, shopping, gastronomy, but the “city that never sleeps” offers great options for those who enjoy wine, beer, whiskey and gin tastings.

Since several of these tastings take place inside their own factories, many are located in Brooklyn – a neighborhood big enough to host these huge buildings.

Another cool spot is a winery only 2 hours from Manhattan with tastings, outdoor yoga classes and happy hours with jazz music.


The Red Hook Winery

NY Distilling Company


If you have no time to organize any of these tastings in New York and need help, see below what we can do for you! After all, they are great spots for tastings!

Do you need help to organize any of the tours of the day trips? Contact our experts so they can tell you about our Concierge Services!

Day Trips and Travels Garrison Hudson Valley By Jake Rajs

Garrison is located only 50 miles North of Manhattan and has some of the most spectacular sceneries close by. So, if you’re the adventurous type, this is the place to go for a peaceful weekend getaway in New York!

Garrison has become one of the most popular hideaways of the super successful New Yorkers that look for peace and quiet. Why? Most of the houses are totally isolated from “civilization” giving them down time after a stressful week.

The city center is super tiny. There, you will find an art center that offers classes for kids and adults and a charming local library.

It’s a great place for canoeing in the Hudson River. Many adventurer enthusiasts head up there to explore New York’s nature and wildlife.

If you enjoy golf,  there are two golf courses to play around. One is the 9-hole Highland Country Club, and the 18-hole Garrison Golf Club.

A few other places to visit while you’re in town:

  • Manitoga / The Russel Wright Design Center – A home, studio, and woodland garden created by the industrial designer, Russel Wright, between 1942 and 1976.
  • Boscobel House & Gardens – They are one of the leading historic house museums in the Unites States. The mansion holds the finest collection of New York Neoclassical furniture and it’s location offers a breathtaking view of the Hudson Valley.
  • Garrison Art Center – They are focused on promoting the creation, exhibition and enjoyment of art!
  • Constitution Marsh Audubon Center & Sanctuary – Comprised of 270 acres of tidal marsh in the Hudson Highlands, Constitution Marsh serves as critical natural habitat for birds and other wildlife of the Hudson River Estuary.

*Places are in same order of appearance in gallery below.*

There are beautiful houses around town and it’s a great place for weddings too!

Also, Garrison is just 10 minutes away is Cold Spring, where you can have a nice dinner with wine and buy groceries. We simply love this small and super charming village!

And still, only 15-20min car ride, you can check out the renowned contemporary art museum called Dia:Beacon.

Enjoy this a peaceful weekend getaway in New York!
