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. Today The Point is a resort like no other, a magnificent log retreat full of priceless art and fine antiques, where guests gather as the high society of the Gilded Ages once did at vibrant house parties deep in the forest. 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.

It's been a tough 12 months for me having to undergo medical treatment. So we needed a special place to go to relax, unwind and try to forget about things and went for two nights. When you arrive at the Point it's like entering a magical place. After our welcome glass of cold champagne, I was more relaxed than I had been for many months. It didn't hurt that the weather was gorgeous, lunch was waiting for us homemade pasta with local vegetables, some wine and few other courses. The room was ready right afterwards and we settled in. The people who work here are so friendly and willing to run and get you anything you need. I mentioned a drink to somebody one evening before dinner and it was on my table without even ordering it. If that isn't service. Everyone smiles and it seems genuine. Breakfasts were plentiful please order the egg with creamed spinach and truffles. Dinners are dressy and 2 nights a week are black tie. Its all so elegant. The time passes so fast while we were there. We walked the property, there are some trails, there are bikes but we didn't get time to use them. I forgot the campfire and smores after dinner if you like. Due to Covid there weren't group tables like there normally is and more people had dinner and breakfast in their rooms so less socializing with the other guests which I miss. The meals were outside and so beautiful a setting. Don't miss an experience here! Now the rates are not low but include meals, activities, drinks, wine and gratuity. Was sad to leave but hope to return. The fantasy can't last forever I guess.

Dear flierm, We are so glad you had a wonderful time visiting our estate! It's always fantastic to hear our guests are able to start relaxing the second they come through our gate, enjoy wonderful food, and get lost in the magic of The Point! We absolutely miss the communal dining experience as well, however, we are delighted to hear you enjoyed the private dining tables as well as our Wednesday and Saturday black tie tradition. We cannot wait to welcome you back again. Warm regards, The Point Staff

Dear Bar0nessvS, Thank you so much for your glowing review. It was a pleasure having you stay with us, especially when The Point is all decorated for the Holiday season. There is definitely something magical about the property at that time of year. We are so glad you enjoyed dining in our traditional communal setting. The Point has many long standing traditions but communal dining is by far one of our guests’ favorites. We cannot wait to welcome you back in the future. Warm regards, The Point staff

There is nowhere else like The Point. All the accolades you've read are, if anything, understatements. It's beautiful, peaceful, intimate and elegant. While there are other lovely boutique properties that have much to offer, The Point's setting on Lake Saranac is matchless in its beauty and for the many lake activities available to guests (boating, swimming, fishing, ice skating). In addition, the quality of the food here exceeds that at any other resort we've visited: it's simply superb thanks to an exceptionally talented chef. We feel that these things, combined with the wonderful caring staff and high level of service, put The Point at the very top of the list of the finest small resorts in the U.S. -- it's certainly our new favorite. All of the buildings on the property are fairly close to one another, and each of the 11 rooms has its own unique charm. Which room to choose is really a matter of personal taste. The four rooms in the Main Lodge are the coziest and most convenient to meals, as the dining room (the "Great Hall") is in the center of this building. The next closest building to the Main Lodge is Eagle's Nest, just across the driveway circle, containing three rooms (two with large second-floor decks) as well as The Pub on the ground floor, where an antique safe holds wooden Stave puzzles that guests can take to their rooms. A bit farther away and set slightly into the woods is The Guest House, also with three rooms. The largest and most private room on the property is The Boathouse, an enormous suite situated in the upper floor of the resort's actual boathouse. (To allow its occupants quiet mornings, none of the motorized boats can be taken out before 10 AM.) It's a somewhat steep uphill walk from The Boathouse to the Main Lodge, though one could surely request a ride from staff if the hike didn't appeal. From our arrival to our departure, we were made to feel completely welcome and like valued guests. The staff greeted us with smiles and genuine warmth. We were given a tour of the property before being shown to our room, Lookout, then welcomed to a delicious lunch in the great hall. The communal dining here makes perfect sense given the small number of guests and was completely comfortable. One of the nicest things about the communal dinners is the rotation of staff members who act as hosts for the group. In case you have any doubt about whether to pack that tux, virtually all the men wore tuxes and the women dressed in floor- or cocktail-length formal dresses for the Saturday night black-tie dinner, yet it was relaxed and enjoyable. During our visit about half of the guests were first-timers like us, and the other half were returning after one or many prior stays; their ages ranged from early 30s to 70s-plus. About half of the guests were from the New York metro area, the rest from all over the country. Everyone we met was interesting, well-traveled and congenial. In sum, The Point is a wonderful, unforgettable place to which we look forward to returning again very soon.

Dear BrynMawrBK, What an incredible review. Thank you for taking your time to give a glimpse into your stay with us. I believe your first line says it all, “There is nowhere else like The Point.” From the serenity and elegance of the property to the personalized service of our staff; The Point is truly one of a kind. I am so glad you were able to experience the true spirit of our property: sunny active days, and nights of decadence. We are very much looking forward to welcoming you back. Warm regards, The Point staff

My husband and I visited The Point in August 2019. The moment you drive through the gated entrance, you are struck by the beauty of the estate grounds and the outstanding views at this Saranac Lake setting. This is an estate steeped in history. Being an original Rockefeller property, the owners have lovingly and meticulously retained the persona of rustic elegance. This is THE place enjoy the lost (and sweet) art of just doing nothing. Everything is in the detail here, from the hammock on the rocks jutting out over the lake, to the placement of the Adirondack chairs lakeside, to the glass of champagne offered before heading to dinner, to the basket of goodies for pets who may accompany their families, to the shiny and well-cared for boats that patrons can take out on the lake. You feel very special at The Point. The staff members here are not just friendly and attentive. Many other hotel properties have that. But here, they are warm. And the staff appeared to REALLY enjoy their work. Dining at The Point was magic. The dinner service under Chef Loic and his brigade was among the best we’ve ever experienced. The table was beautifully set, and each course was delicious, imaginative, and beautifully plated. We could not have asked for a more sophisticated and better dining experience. The energy in the kitchen was focused and professional. Although this was a romantic getaway, I could also envision The Point as being an excellent site for executive strategic planning sessions, where you need to clear your head to plan for the future, or family get togethers where you could enjoy the peaceful location while packing your day with fun activities. Thank you to the stellar staff members at The Point for a most memorable stay. Keep up the good work!

Dear NancyGreenbranch, Thank you for your kind words. It is always amazing to hear what really stands out to our guests during their first time at The Point. The art of “doing nothing” is definitely something our guests have mastered. Many wonderful activities are always available, but sometimes doing nothing is just as rewarding. Thank you for highlighting the services provided by our staff. They very much do enjoy their work and we are lucky to have some of the finest people as The Point team. We cannot wait to welcome you back! Warm regards, The Point staff

I cannot recommend highly enough. The natural beauty of the surroundings, the food, staff, guests, activities (or not). This destination and this very special resort are not to be missed. We enjoyed the intimacy of just 11 rooms and 22 guests at the resort. The family style meals in old "camp" fashion were lovely. Lots of room to roam and enjoy the natural beauty of the Adirondack Mountains.

Dear marnieindc, Thank you so much for your review. We are so happy you feel The Point is as special of a place as we do. The intimate setting and the traditional communal dining is the dream of any adult’s “camp getaway.” The location provides an opportunity to tailor your stay to whatever you want to do. Whether it is spending the afternoon hiking, or, settling into an Adirondack chair overlooking Upper Saranac Lake; we will be right there to hand you a glass of champagne. We look forward to welcoming you back! Warm regards, The Point staff
