An experience for life. Just do it! Staff did their utmost to make our stay perfect, and perfect it was. Location is absolutely beautiful and secluded. Rooms and entire estate is very charming. Especially enjoyed taking the boats out on the lake. Hope to return some time in the future.

Dear motomomMaryland, Thank you so much for your kind review. I did just want to verify that it was us that you visited so that we don't steal someone else's great review!

After having stayed at The Point for five days back in June of 2011, my wife and I elected to re-visit this wonderful ‘Slice of Heaven’ on Earth, this time for two weeks for the Autumn colors. We’d just hosted our daughter’s wedding two weeks prior, and I felt that an indulgent get-away was just what the ‘Mother of the... More

On the shore of Lake Saranac, this is a very luxurious and peaceful place to stay. The food was high quality, and the service was perfect. Nothing is too much trouble. Lunch can be wherever you want it - a picnic on a small island, on the deck, in your room..... Breakfast is when and where you want it. Black... More

We were picked up from the airport in a car which was not vacuum cleaned for a long time. That might sound like a small thing, but it is symbolic for the rest of our experience. Just not good enough anymore, except the bill. Running a place like this is like being married to a Harvard educated supermodel. It's high... More

From the minute you arrive until the minute you sadly have to leave The Point, you are treated as if your person needs and desires are the only thing that matter.

I have written about The Point previously but wanted to validate another fantastic time here. We celebrated our 20th anniversary at The Point this past week. GM Cameron Karger and team outdid themselves again and again and again. We will be back again and again and again.

The Point exceeds perfection. From the moment you arrive be prepared to indulge. The grounds and accommodations are very charming and comfy. Besides all the dead animals on the walls. I'm a city girl and that took me a bit to get used to and settle into this mountainous element. It's a 5 star sleep away camp for adults. The... More

That is the name on one of their boats. And the essence of their philosophy. They have gotten the point and do everything right. From the warmest and crunchiest breakfast croissant to a lit fireplace and hot tea in the cabin to greet you after your hike.And every single person will do their outmost to keep you happy. Oh how...
