Scale of 90-100
Formerly owned by the Rockefeller family, this evocative property on Upper Saranac Lake in the Adirondacks is 45 minutes from Lake Placid. The 11 distinctive accommodations are housed within an imposing log structure and three annexes. While all lodgings come with stone woodburning fireplaces, most feature custom furnishings and luxurious baths. The massive spruce-beamed Great Hall serves as the venue for candlelit communal-style dinners. Activities include lake swimming, boating, 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 compulsory 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 21.
