Stepping along the trails, looking for Bracket Fungus among the white birch to take back to our room and practice the art of Adirondack Scrimshaw. Can't help but love this place. A great fun, quick novella read (techno-thriller) for your iPad called, November Seed, which takes place here, might make you pull the covers over up and have you checking... More

We had our second stay at The Point in early October. You really need to stay at least three nights to Immerse yourself into the special experience that The Point offers.

Had heard about The Point from several friends—finally had a chance to try it and just returned from a short stay. It was different than expected, but a great experience. We drove (after a long rainy trip) through the “Adirondack twig” gate at the end of a narrow road and up to the log building which is the main lodge.... More

We have been going to The Point for 15 years and the past trip was pure heaven. Cameron, Jake and the whole team once again delivered a fabulous experience. There is evidence of investment in the property (which it needed) and the investments have made a difference. Lunch at Camp David, breakfast on the Elco, picnics out on the point... More

(Pun intended.) Well, Cameron and crew have done it again. What an amazing stay, as always. The place is paradise. Seeing the previous comment, I remember talk of the microburst years ago, but there is no evidence of it today. You will find the bluest lake, lush trees and skyline, and happy Great Campers. We have been going to The... More

The Point is an idyllic spot on lovely Saranac Lake. I had it on my "bucket list" of places to stay for years. The rooms are cosy and well-appointed but not with the 5-star glamourous bathrooms and bells and whistles you come to expect at this price point. At first I was a bit underwhelmed but then as I settled... More

Dear LisaKnoxville, Your review is truly amazing and is so much appreciated by myself and all of the staff. It is always said that The Point is something that you can't explain, just need to experience. I think you got closer to explaining it than I ever could. Thank you so much.

That used to be a worthy claim for a visitor to the Saranac Lake area of New York State. The physical plant was magnificent. The restaurant was a dream. The power boating was first class. Even just a walk out to the well stocked bar in the lean-to at the tip of the Point itself was a delight. One price... More

Steven B., Thank you for taking the time to write a review about us. I am happy to be able to tell you that the ownership concept you mentioned fell apart several years ago and we have since returned to running the way The Point did in the past. The damage the micro burst caused in 2008 has largely grown... More

When I booked The Point for my birthday celebration, my husband was dubious. No cellphones, no TV, no wifi, stuck in the middle of nowhere, forced to eat dinner with a bunch of strangers. Uncomfortably like an English boarding school. Have to admit I was a little worried too - what if the other guests were all obnoxious investment bankers... More

It's very small, it's elegant without being fussy. It's rustic but very upscale, there is nothing to want for. All in all it's a delight! There are but a few rooms spread out resort style. There are a couple in the main cabin but the better rooms are the furthest from the main house. They are Ralph Lauren at his... More
