Built a century ago by William Avery Rockeffeller as a summer "Great Camp" retreat for his
family, the Point continues today its tradition of rustic elegance, offering a luxurious lakeside
experience in the woods. Consisting of eleven guest rooms spread among the original log
cabins that were built of native Adirondack timber, each with huge stone fireplace and broad
views of Saranac Lake, the Point recreates for its guests the graceful lifestyle of long ago:
guided boat rides around the scenic lake on classic wood boats, wonderful dinners served
promptly at 8:00 preceded by cocktails from the lodge's extensive wine and spirits cellars,
jackets and ties in the evening (and formal attire on Saturday nights), roaring fires in the dining
room fireplace, and other amenities provided by the Point's attentive staff.
We stayed in, and recommend, the Weatherwatch, a large, open log cabin cottage with two
walls of windows providing a scenic view of Saranac Lake, depicted in the photo shown here.
