In the style of the upstate “Great Camps” of the 19th century, The Point promises a tranquil, natural escape from the city paired with a gold-standard level of hospitality and service.

The Atmosphere at The Point

The Point is a Gilded Age legend– one of the “Great Camps” originally built ago by a member of the Rockefeller family. This log mansion situated on a secluded section of Saranac Lake in the Adirondacks continues a long legacy of providing utmost hospitality and comfort in a romantic, natural setting.

At night, dress to the nines for banquet-like dinners that even a Rockefeller or Vanderbilt would be impressed by. During the day, there’s a wide variety of activities to participate in, whether it be waterskiing on the lake, picnicking on a private island or rock climbing in the majestic High Peaks.

Your Room

Accommodations range between four original log buildings on property, from the Main Lodge to the highly-requested Boathouse. Each room is decorated uniquely with its own personality, but they all boast a sweeping lake view, cozy wood-burning fireplace and luxe hand-crafted beds.

Food & Drink

At The Point, you’ll dine the same way the Rockefellers and their guests dined one hundred years ago– in style. As the sun begins to sink low, guests gather in the Great Hall to enjoy dinner (included in the cost of your night’s stay). Throughout the week, guests are expected to complement the property’s nostalgic, formal setting with formal attire at dinners, but on two special nights of the week things kick up yet another notch. Guests are invited to don their tuxedos or dressy cocktail gowns and join a seven-course banquet in the Great Hall.
