Montauk by Winter

For years, Montauk has been known as a summer destination – a place to relax, party, dine, and explore. That’s not all Montauk has to offer though. Montauk in the off season is a whole new experience – a chance to escape chaos, submerge into nature, enjoy cosy nights in, and all the locals have to offer. Fortunately, our family at Daunt’s Albatross stay open year-round with special offers and deals to allow you to come and enjoy the experience.


Get in the Christmas spirit this off-season by staying with us at the Albatross, where you can enjoy some off-season specials.

  • Pay 2 nights, get 3rd night free when you book directly through us…yes please
  • Free bottle of wine when you subscribe to our newsletter and book a room…because who doesn’t love wine?
  • Off-season worker special rates…you all work hard enough, so let us help out.

Don’t forget to check-out our Enchanted Christmas Village and decorations when your come by!
