The Point, Saranac Lake
|12983, Saranac Lake, New York State, UNITED STATES.|
Description: The PointThe Adirondack Great Camps. Built along rugged shorelines between ancient forests and shining mountain lakes, in the late 1800s and the early part of this century, they were sumptuous retreats for the very wealthy and their friends. None was more lavish or expressed more fully the collage of mountain charm and luxury sought by their owners than The Point.
Painstakingly constructed on 10 acres of peninsula stretching into Upper Saranac Lake, The Point was originally Camp Wonundra, the home of William Avery Rockefeller. There, in the heart of the vast Adirondack wilderness, he lived quietly and entertained in the gracious style of The Great Camp era. The Point combines that tradition of honoring guests with its unique combination of warm hospitality, grace and rustic elegance.
Type of rooms: The Point11 distinctive guest quarters are spread among 4 buildings.
Each room manages to be both splendid and unpretentious, has a broad lake view, custom-made beds, and spacious private bath. All contain an eclectic mixture of antiques and Adirondack furniture, and all have huge fireplaces of chiseled stone.

|Reservations are required, as they do not accept drop-ins.
To make a reservation, please telephone. They will hold the space requested for 24hrs, by which time they must receive a deposit of $500 per day per room, or the reservation will have to be voided to make room for others.
Upon receipt of your deposit, they will confirm your reservation by mailing you a confirmation letter and bill for the balance, which is due 60 days prior to your arrival.
The Balance due will be automatically applied to the credit card they have on file. Should you wish to change that credit card please contact their office prior to the balance due date. If the balance has not been received by that date, the reservation will be cancelled, and the deposit will be non-refundable.
In the event that your reservation is made within the 60 days, the reservation must be paid in full and is then non-refundable.
Cancellations: because of their small size, cancellations affect us significantly. A last-minute cancellation leaves us little chance of filling the reserved space due to our remote location. For these reasons, we uphold a strict cancellation policy. Your funds, less $200 per room booked, will be happily refunded if cancellation is made AT LEAST 60 DAYS PRIOR TO ARRIVAL. After that, no refund is possible regardless of the reason for non-arrival or early departure, unless we are able to re-book the space. However, you are welcome to send someone else in your place.
All costs, prices, and policies, including exchange rates and package deals, may change and should be confirmed with the hotel upon booking.
