lazy living: Montauk surf shack

This summer rental is the perfect mix of cozy: ideal for lazy summer afternoons alone, but also suited towards laid back entertaining. The owner, Richard Christiansen, rented the spot as a place for his staff to hang out on the weekend. It sleeps 20-plus, so you know it is always ready for a party.

The decor reminds me of my own cottage up north and makes me long for another weekend up there. This weekend I will hit up the street food festival in my neighbourhood and then fly to San Diego on Sunday for a conference.  What are your weekend plans?

As with any summer space, outdoors is always more important than indoors.
