How It Started

In the early 70s, Frances and Rich Daunt fell in love with the sleepy beach town of Montauk. They bought a small bungalow and found themselves hosting more family and friends than their home could fit. In 1977, they found a way to invite more people: they purchased The Albatross Motel and our family’s hospitality journey began.

The Bird

Just across the street and now a part of the Daunt’s Albatross family, The Bird is a come-as-you-are eatery serving classic favorites and creative cocktails from morning to evening.
