This facility is described in Professor Kaiser's beautiful coffee table book on pages 164-5. The book contains beautiful pictures of a bygone era when the rich and famous Summered and even Wintered in this unique area of little mountains and stunning lakes at elevations of over 1500 feet, so the temperatures in Summer were cool and refreshing compared to their city homes in the coastal cities.
The Point camp comprises a collection of handsome log structures, featuring the main lodge where the food service and living room area reside along with several of the total of 10 guest rooms.
The other buildings include a pub with bar and pool table downstairs and two guest rooms upstairs, while the lake front lodge where their three small boats are berthed has only one bedroom, but a magnificent porch on the lake. Our two unit lodge room which we were told was the room where Mr. Rockefeller stayed, contained a copy of Kaiser's book. So it was in great comfort in front of a roaring fireplace that we learned about this chain of camps, now mostly relegated to other than tourist uses, except for the Point.
If one wants to vicariously experience the era Kaiser describes, buying this book will do the job at a fraction of the cost of staying even for a weekend at the Point. However, the service and food and the Winter scene at Saranac Lake made my wife and me feel that we had gotten our money's worth.
