The Adirondacks: Luxury in the Wilds

Dec 3, 2004
Outside Magazine

Six million acres of towering evergreen forests, mirror-smooth lakes, and ancient mountains pack Adirondack Park, the largest publicly protected wilderness area in the lower 48. In the center of this boundless playground, find the Point, a resort that impeccably blends its wild setting with no-expense-spared extravagance. THE LOVE NEST: Prepare to splurge on one of 11 rooms in four lodges, with overstuffed armchairs, feather beds, and wood-burning fireplaces. Breakfast in bed is de rigueur, but don't spend all of your time cuddled up with your sweetie—or that copy of Huckleberry Finn from your room's little library. (Doubles from $1,250, including all meals, beverages, and activities; 800-255-3530, DOUBLES PLAY: Snag a pair of snowshoes from the Point's overflowing gear stash and take 'em on eight-mile-long Upper Saranac Lake, or over the trails on the resort's 75 acres.
