The Point Resort is a distinctive hideaway, a world apart. The Private Adirondack estate, set on the shoreline of a shining Upper Saranac Lake, marries luxury to nature. The Point is designated as Forbes only 5-star resort in Upstate New York. The retreat was built by William Avery Rockefeller a century ago, as a Great Camp of the North Woods. The fanciful log mansions, crafted of native timber and stone, personified the 19th century romantic notion of roughing it in great comfort, style and luxury. Today, The Point continues the tradition of honoring guests with its unique combination of warm hospitality, privacy and utter comfort. The Point is a private estate and therefore advance reservations are required; visitors are not allowed.
