The Point is the pinnacle of Adirondacks luxury. Built on Saranac Lake by William Rockefeller, The Point is the most elaborate of the Adirondacks' early 19th-century Great Camps. It's rustic, yet completely refined. In fact, one of its elemental luxuries is that very sense of sophisticated simplicity. Whether watching fresh snowfall or spending lazy summer evenings watching the sunset, guests head straight to The Point to get back to life's basics.

A perfect example is the resort's

The Point- an Adirondack Great Camp- built for William A. Rockefeller- is a marvelous marriage of rustic simplicity and extraordinary luxury. Set on the wooded shore of Upper Saranac Lake- The Points eleven magnificent guest rooms are spread among four log buildings- here the silence and peace of the great North woods reign supreme. The Point is a study in delicious contrasts- the exceptional meals- the blaze of the campfire on the edge of the dark lake- the fine art and antiques- most original to the camp- and the supply of snowshoes and skis for exploring the magical white forest. Gourmet picnic excursions- journeys through the rippling waters in gleaming mahogany boats- tasting menus of old cognacs- a staff that organizes each day according to the pleasure of the guests. The Point is a special place indeed. . The property is closed each year for the month of April .
