The Point

96 Editor Rating
Scale of 90-100

Evocative property formerly owned by the Rockefeller family, on Upper Saranac Lake, 45 minutes from Lake Placid. The 11 distinctive accommodations are housed within an imposing log structure and three annexes. Most feature stone fireplaces, custom furnishings and luxurious baths. A massive spruce-beamed living room-dining hall serves as the venue for candlelit family-style dinners. Activities include lake swim­ming, water skiing, canoeing, tennis and hikes. In winter, the emphasis switches to cross-country skiing, ice skating and snowshoeing. The evening formality (jacket and tie required, and black tie suggested on Wednesday and Saturday nights) may be a turnoff for some. The serene, wooded property is an idyllic departure point for nearby water and wilderness recreation. No guests under age 18.
