Hello Mother, Hello Father


Hello Mother, Hello Father…The Point Offers Adults Sophisticated Summer ‘Camp’

You’ve long outgrown your footlocker trunk, and there’s certainly no need to have two of everything, but at the Relais & Châteaux resort, The Point, “going to camp” isn’t just for kids anymore… it’s even better for adults! Elegant accommodations sprinkled with a hint of whimsy, and culinary delights created by award-winning chef, Mark Levy, cultivate a sophisticated camp experience for discerning travelers. Tucked into the breathtaking Adirondacks, a true spirit of Americana dances throughout the compound, itself a holdout from the legendary Great Camp era when the wealthiest New York financiers and industrialists fled the summer’s city heat by building summer “camps” in the mountains.
While there’s no dinner bell at this camp, meals are truly an event designed by chef Levy, who will counsel guests’ palates at each meal, which are served ‘en famille’ in the grand dining room – unless of course guests request a picnic lunch packed to take along on a hike or boat trip. Like every camper knows, there are some camp traditions that are truly legendary, and The Point’s celebrated barbecue lunches – where the freshest local offerings, from vegetables to fish, are grilled to perfection – is the stuff from which legends are born. Of course, as the sun begins to dip on summer evenings there’s often a ringing from the lake where cocktails and champagne are enjoyed aboard one of The Point’s antique boats.
 An abundance of activities as broad and grand as the Great Hall itself are included in each visit to The Point, but none more celebrated during the warm summer months as those involving The Point’s watercraft fleet. From sea kayaks, canoes, and small mahogany and teak inboards, to a beautiful 33 foot, classic, handcrafted mahogany Hacker-craft and a 32 foot restored, vintage Elco Electric Launch with a glassed-in deck, the collection at The Point makes finding your "lake legs" easy while transporting you back to the traditional summers of the “Golden Age of Boating.”
At The Point sophisticated “campers” will enjoy one of eleven accommodations, each a unique composition of cathedral ceilings, handsome stone wood-burning fireplaces, custom-made bedding, and a myriad of rich textures which master the subtle balance of being both unpretentious and splendid simultaneously.  At the end of the day, gather ‘round the campfire with friends both old and new, to savor stories, s’mores, and say goodnight.
