Having had the good fortune of staying at many five star properties throughout the world, I must say that The Point is hands down the most special I have EVER stayed at. I have wanted to visit it for years and we – that is, my girlfriend now wife and of course our dog -- went for my 40th birthday.... More

Let's start from the initial phone call to inquire about whether this was the right place for an elopement. what can I say: We just got back married and with wonderful memories. Ann was friendly, thorough in helping us with the plans, assuring everything was above our expectations. We stayed at the Weatherwatch, a truly magnificient room, with beautiful views.... More

This property has it all. Location, service, amenities, staff, everything but cell service and WiFi (which is refreshing). Expensive but one of a handful of places that are worth it. ALL the staff were wonderful and couldn't do enough for you. A unique experience in a beautiful part of the USA.

A remote location on the shores of a sparkling lake. Shorts and t-shirts and no makeup by day. Elegant candlelight and sparkling crystal by night. A private picnic on an island all your own. Fantastic gourmet dinners enjoyed in congenial community with fellow guests. Lots of laughter and stories and interesting personalities. Quiet, crisp nights. S'mores toasted on willow branches...

We rebooked before leaving! The service is above and beyond. 24 hour gourmet chef, who gladly made pizza, burritos and grilled cheese sandwiches, pretty much anything you ask for, around 230 am nightly. And remember this is a small resort with only 11 guest rooms in the middle of the woods... As the staff says to you upon arrival, this... More

This was the highlight of our two week tour around New York state, I am so pleased I decided to stay- we nearly didn't as it is an expensive hotel but everything and I do mean everything is included and it was just wonderful.

A hard review to write because there is so much to comment on. Go when you have time to retreat from the world several days, go for as long as you can, and go without trying to schedule your days. All is taken care of. If it bothers you when a top hotel wants you to pay $8 for a... More

I had the pleasure of staying at The Point for a long weekend back in August of 1989. I had heard about various great camps from friends and family members who had experienced them back in their heyday as guests of original owners and The Point lived up to every expectation I had. The room we stayed in was divine.... More

Co-sign what each of the other five-star reviewers have said. There are no words to describe The Point. I was so very lucky to be treated to a weekend at The Point as a birthday surprise. Our trip happened to coincide with Superstorm Sandy; as a result, there were several guests from the NYC area who were unable to make... More

The Point is a world apart. A Private, adult only, Adirondack estate on the edge of a shining mountain lake. A Great Camp of the Great North Woods, built by William Avery Rockefeller a century ago as his family’s private home.

As a guest of The Point, the secluded, 75-acre property is yours, the days unfold at your leisure, and the staff anticipates your every need. Each meal is an event, each day an adventure, each night a celebration. It is simple, splendid, authentic. It is a perfect place. ... more   less
