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...

My review is long overdue but I tell so many people about this place that I felt I should add it to TripAdvisor. We visited The Point in October 2014 - and it was simply amazing - every single aspect of the visit was pure perfection! I am an Adirondack resident and absolutely loved the décor, the setting, the boats,... More

We spent two nights at the Point for our honeymoon. It really was the perfect blend of serenity and pampering. Romantic in all the details, but with just the right amount of social interaction. The opportunity to re-live the Adirondack Great Camp era was really unique and fun. The staff was exceptional and made my new wife and I feel... More

My husband surprised me with an Anniversary and Bday visit to The Point ... A dream trip I had wanted to make since I saw a PBS special many years ago about the Great Camps of the Adirondacks .

Just went for our second trip. This visit was superb and better than the first. The weather was great which made the stay as we had just an increased # of activities to choose from. I do wish they would add Wifi to the rooms at least. I know they want you not to work but I ended up walking... More

Thanks to the entire staff of The Point for making our social occasion something to remember. We are especially grateful to Anne for making all the arrangements, Tony for the great table side service at our 'private' dinner in the Great Room, and to Upper Saranac's own Jay Leno, Jake whose entertaining Hackercraft tour of the 'neighborhood' was an absolute...

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.

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.
