My Husband and I had such a wonderfully romantic stay at The Point! The service is impeccable, the rooms are so beautiful and the wood burning fireplace is a must, nothing worse than a boring gas fireplace without that pleasing aroma and crackling sounds. The chef is very accommodating to dietary needs and our dinner was exceptional! The Hacker Craft... More

This lodge is spectacular!!! My family visited here a year ago as a retreat to just relax and unwind. We found it to be the perfect place for that, idyllic in its location and just as iconic in its style!

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

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?

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.

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
