Growing up in northern Wisconsin, I visited many luxurious, wooded resorts that catered to Chicago's elite. The wooded lake country where I spent my childhood was studded with massive, gorgeous log properties that had been around for a century or more. On the East Coast, The Point Resort — an exclusive, high-end resort in Saranac Lake, NY — which was formerly William Avery Rockefeller's personal vacation property, reminds me of the most luxurious of the properties I visited as a child.
As one of the very last remaining properties from the Adirondack great-camp period, The Point offers a unique combination of personalized service, private luxury, and exceptional comfort. With 11 Adirondack-inspired guest quarters spread among four original buildings, lake views, rugged fireplaces, custom-made beds, and private baths, it's truly a stunning getaway. Let's take a look at this gorgeous property.
