Word of Mouth: An Adirondack Getaway
What’s it like to live like a Rockefeller during the Gilded Age? You could pull out your nearest history book or…you could visit The Point, a 75-acre estate tucked in the Adirondack wilderness. Built by William Avery Rockefeller, Jr., the resort once served as the family’s private retreat and was one of the legendary Great Camps of the era. (The Carnegies and Vanderbilts had their own palatial “camps,” too.) Today, you can unwind to that life of leisure while exploring the Great Outdoors — wakeboarding, skiing, snow barbeques — and indulging in 21st-century diversions like on-call massage therapists and a Grand Marnier soufflé.
