A rustic Adirondack hideaway

8 Rooms / 3 Suites

Exceptionally well-heeled travelers seeking a glamorous version of roughing it head straight for The Point. This former great camp of William Avery Rockefeller revives the spirit of the early 19th-century Adirondacks, when the wealthy came to rusticate in this sylvan paradise. No signs direct visitors to this intimate camp, helping it maintain its decidedly residential ambience. The resort has a splendid location on a 10-acre peninsula on Upper Saranac Lake. Rooms feature Adirondack twig furnishings, stone fireplaces, elegant bathrooms and luxe antiques. From snowshoeing and cross-country skiing to water sports, trail hikes and croquet, you’ll find a variety of outdoor activities. Guests have the run of the place and no request is too much. (Champagne and truffled popcorn at 4 a.m.? No problem.) Gourmet dining figures largely in the experience and with a nod to the patrician past, guests don black-tie attire twice weekly at the communal dining table in the resort’s great room.
