Winter in the Adirondacks at The Point, Saranac Lake

November 25, 2009 By:Mary Winston Nicklin

The PointPlanning a winter vacay in the Adirondacks? Do it right and stay at The Point, the exclusive, 11-room property that was a Rockefeller Adirondack Great Camp back in the day. Now, it's racked up the awards for providing guests with the ultimate civilized wilderness experience. Head off on an invigorating outdoor adventure-- perhaps cross-country skiing on snow-covered Upper Saranac Lake or on the nearby trails-- then cozy up by the fire with a good book. Or retreat to The Point's Adirondack pub for a game of pool or darts. The list of winter activities is endless: downhill skiing on Whiteface Mountain (the 3,216-foot vertical drop is the highest in the East), ice skating on the lake or on the indoor rink in Lake Placid, snowshoeing through the magical wintry landscape, even ice fishing. The chef at The Point will prepare your catch for you. Most fun of all: the snow barbecues out on the point. Wear warm clothes and get geared up for an unforgettable lunch. The best part of all? The Point is all-inclusive (meaning all meals and activities are included in your room rates).
