There isn’t a bad time of the year to visit The Point, to be honest. But if you live in a single-season climate, we recommend coming during autumn, if only to experience the fiery leaves falling throughout the area. The colors tend to peak in the Adirondacks around Columbus Day weekend. Embarking on your adventure at this Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star hotel in late September through the month of October will almost guarantee you a vista of color. And the weather won’t be too bitter, so you can enjoy fall activities around the lake.
If you live for the cold temperatures and love winter sports, then wait until after Thanksgiving to catch The Point with fresh snow. In the depths of winter, the entire Saranac Lake freezes over and countless ice-based activities become available. The hotel crafts its own ice rink; you can even try your hand at curling.
