Activities At The Point, the day is yours to enjoy the way you want. There is nothing you have to do, and a great deal you can do. Each season holds special delights in the Adirondacks. Winter, quilted with snow, lends the woods and buildings a magical quiet and beauty. Cross-country skis and snowshoes help guests find a path into a world of white, while on the frozen lake, skating, curling and ice fishing are iconic pleasures. The nearby village of Lake Placid, host of the 1932 and 1980 Winter Olympics, offers a wide array of activities, from downhill skiing at the legendary Whiteface Mountain to the only public bobsled and luge runs in the country. The great athletes of the world come to practice at Lake Placid, and their games and rehearsals are often open to the public. Inside The Point, winter is warm and welcoming, with blazing fires, old movies, mulled wines, darts and pool, and good company.
If you would like, we can arrange a visit from a certified massage therapist for an in-room massage by the fire.
When the snow has gone, the Adirondacks are a landscape of shimmering lakes and cascading streams, vast timberlands and soaring mountains with views clear to Canada. The air is sweet and clear. Days at The Point unfold with boating, fishing, tennis, waterskiing, croquet, badminton, swimming and hiking. Canoes, mahogany electric inboards and Adirondack Guide Boats are on hand, for some secrets of the lake can only be discovered from the vantage of a boat. Nearby are golf, horseback riding, hunting, antiquing and some of the best trout and bass fishing in the country…though a hammock swaying under the high pines can be a great temptation. As the sun sets, our big Elco launch sets out for an evening cocktail cruise, a perfect cap to a perfect day.
