I had the pleasure of staying at The Point for a long weekend back in August of 1989. I had heard about various great camps from friends and family members who had experienced them back in their heyday as guests of original owners and The Point lived up to every expectation I had.
The room we stayed in was divine. The large four poster bed, settled with the finest of linens, faced a beautiful fireplace which was lit for us late in the afternoon each day of our stay. The food was spectacular and the service beyond first rate.
We enjoyed the various water activities offered and went on a hike or two as well.
I appreciated the quiet nature of the staff and how private everything seemed, as if we were the only ones there.
I will never forget my stay at The Point and would highly recommend it to anyone who wants to take a step back in time and experience first hand what it is to live like American royalty. While it is, obviously, a very expensive endeavor, if you can swing it it is well worth it!

As a guest of The Point, the secluded, 75-acre property is yours, the days unfold at your leisure, and the staff anticipates your every need. Each meal is an event, each day an adventure, each night a celebration. It is simple, splendid, authentic. It is a perfect place. ... more less
