Room at The Point, Saranac Lake, NY

The Point Hotel Review

: Built by William Avery Rockefeller, this log cabin-style property was once his family's private residence and stands amidst towering pines on the edge of Upper Saranac Lake. But don't mistake it for a regular ol' lodge. The Point carries on the tradition of luxurious lakeside Adirondack camps made famous a century ago by the mega-rich. Despite this exclusivity, the experience is all-inclusive; rates cover meals along with afternoon tea, wine and liquor --- the bar is self-serve. Guests at the restaurant's communal table are served without a menu in dinner party fashion. The giant bedrooms with names like Mohawk and Algonquin are best defined as quarters. There are ten plus a boathouse located in separate buildings. Each boasts Adirondack furniture, a chiseled stone fireplace and intricately hand-embroidered quilts. Sheer white muslin cascades from the four-poster bed frames. Bathrooms are equipped with soaking tubs and rain showers. Beyond creature comforts, the lodge offers dozens of activities both indoors and out. Guests can play a game of billiards or croquet, spend the afternoon lake fishing or take in a round of golf. They can even book a personal animal tracker and head for the hills.
