The Point was originally an Adirondack Great Camp, built in 1933 by William Avery Rockefeller. Naturally, while the house has been updated over time, the style remains true to the “Great Camp” era. A campsite could only be deemed a true Great Camp if it comprised multiple buildings with connected and covered walkways.

The Point sports an effortless blend of rustic Adirondack woodwork, luxurious jewel-toned fabrics, plush fur throws and Victorian-style black and white tile bathrooms — some with claw-footed tubs.

The Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star hotel was formerly owned by David and Christine Garrett, who presided over the design of the hotel for many years. With every aspect of the hotel’s style and amenities, they asked themselves, “what would the Rockefellers have had?” The style is traditional, comfortable yet elegant. We think Mr. Rockefeller would approve.
