Saranac Lake Hotels
222 Beaverwood Rd., Saranac Lake, NY 12983
Set on a pine-rimmed lake in the Adirondacks, this historic great camp has modern East Coast hospitality down. The four main structures on the seventy-five-acre property are all original, built over a century ago by the Rockefeller family to create a private, rough-it-in-style getaway in the woods. These days, the resort is as private and rustic as ever, with plenty of luxe upgrades throughout. Every guest room has a handsome stone fireplace and a tranquil view of Saranac Lake, and everywhere you turn there’s a boat waiting to be launched (complete with picnic and blanket) or an outdoor fireplace looking for loungers. The whole experience makes you feel as if you own the place—the woodsy environment lends itself nicely to privacy, yes, but the Point makes it so easy to hop on the boat for a waterski or take out a pair of ice skates, that it also feels like a close friend’s (sprawling, incredibly gorgeous) lake house.
