The Point

Saranac Lake, New York

The Point was designated as the first Relais & Châteaux member of North America 39 years ago and is the only Forbes Five Star property in Upstate New York.

Built by William Avery Rockefeller II a century ago, the fanciful log mansions, crafted of native timber and stone, personifies the 19th Century romantic notion of “roughing it” in great comfort, style, and luxury. Today, The Point pays tribute to this tradition by honoring guests with its unique combination of warm, gracious hospitality, privacy, and thoughtful services in each detail of one’s visit. Enjoy an unforgettable stay at The Point, the only Adirondack Great Camp from the Gilded Age open to the public.
