The Point is more than a singular resort, it is a singular experience. I've certainly never been anywhere quite like it, and have never heard of anyplace even remotely similar. It is the closest thing you can get to having guilt-free access to a billionaire's private home, bar, provisions and staff for as long as you care to pay the... More

This was our second time to the Point. We could not have been more thrilled with this very lovely and unique place. We even got a chance to meet the new owner (Well, one of them at least) and she is amazing! This place is definitely what you make of it. If you want to mingle with guest for meals... More

We visited The Point two years ago, and decided to return for our 25th Wedding Anniversary. I was a little apprehensive - so often when you loved somewhere first time the return is a disappointment and we had such an amazing time - would this visit be as good? We arrived by car to be greeted warmly by staff including... More

I was lucky enough to spend 2 nights at The Point last year in February after dreaming about this place for quite some time. It was a week end with my cousin visiting me in New York and we drove there on a cold snowy day. As soon as we arrived we were in another world. The snow storm had... More

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.

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.

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

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
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. ... more   less
