Saranac Lake, New York
Looking for a remote escape not too far from New York City? Then jump in the car and head upstate toward the charming village of Saranac Lake. Tucked away in the Adirondacks and approximately 300 miles (or a five-hour road trip) north of Manhattan, Saranac Lake is one of the best retreats in the northeast to view the heavenly bodies above. The Point serves as the ideal basecamp. Originally built as a Great Camp for William Avery Rockefeller II, the estate is now a rustic resort and became the first Relais and Châteaux hotel in North America. With just 11 distinct guest rooms, visitors are invited to explore the property’s expansive 75 acres. A fan favorite is “the point of The Point,” a secluded hideaway overlooking Saranac Lake, where telescopes, homemade s’mores, and craft cocktails await.
