Home Description

NORTHPOINT CAMP GROUPS have comfort & space for individual privacy. FAMILIES find an outdoor playground together. COUPLES love the romantic solitude. PETS are welcome. You, your gear, & your food come to camp by motorboat; we provide canoes for your use while here. !!NEW in 2016!! - a small motorboat for guest use after orientation/safety instruction - $20. fuel fee. 4 persons incl. driver. NIR sauna on back dock for those chilly swim days.

Northpoint is not generally handicap accessible, and it is good to be comfortable on and around the water and able to navigate established forest paths! However, arrangements can be made for those of limited mobility - contact us! The main house offers panoramic views with floor-to-ceiling picture windows and outside deck w/ gas grill for sunset suppers. There's a modernized galley kitchen with dishwasher, new 4-burner electric stove/oven and full-size refrigerator/freezer plus toaster, crock-pot, glassware, cutlery & dinnerware. Dine with nicely appointed accessories in view of the fireplace. The rustic wood floors have Nepalese rugs; the ceilings are high making for a cozy loft w/ extraordinary panoramic view. Electric heat, fireplace and on-demand gas hot water. 4G Verizon phone reception, WiFi nearby. The Family Suite has an outside entrance with a king bed and a queen pull-out couch. Theirs is a Jack & Jill bathroom with shower & washer/dryer which opens through to the Twin room accessed off the main Living/Dining area. The primary bath opens from the LR & has an antique claw-foot soaking tub with the luxury of on-demand hot water that is as clean & pure as it is rare and totally delicious. This is the primary facility for the loft bedroom above and a close bath for the Twin room if needed. Lakeside just down the path from the Main House there is an original 1903 lakeside stone building w/balcony overlooking the lake - one of just 3 left from a devastating fire in 1941. It serves now as a prime Master Cabin and is available for an additional $550. week to guests already booked into the Main house. There you find a gas fireplace, toilet & sink and small refrigerator & coffee maker. It has original glass windows, a surrounding deck and authentic Mission-style furniture and lighting. Water laps just out the many windows; the moon reflects magically on the ceiling as you're lulled to sleep. All linens & towels are provided. Free car parking is offered at our private boat landing. Your group will be transported by motorboat to Lean-to Island dock where you will find canoes/ paddles & life jackets. NYS law mandates use of PFDs. Launch your own motorboat for a small fee; no marina facilities so bring extra fuel. No covered mooring at the small floating dock with great afternoon sun and is deep enough for diving. Book a back-to-Nature adventure this season on Upper St. Regis Lake; we have something special for everyone. You will not be tempted to exceed your budget here with shopping, eating and other vacation indulgences because you will be perched high above the water and exploring your private island playground below with its rare open campfire and original Adirondack Lean-to. Your hosts transport your group to the island for the marked trail through the woods up to the Main house perched on Northpoint; your food/gear is delivered to your door by another route. Guests are provided a comprehensive book of suggested, mapped adventures to begin this memorable family vacation at the edge of 6 million acres of Adirondack State Park. Bring your groceries for the week; we will transport them for you at time of arrival.

This place is a jewel in the pristine Adirondacks.

Our stay at Northpoint was one of the most relaxing vacations we have had in a long while. The water, air and comfortable sleeping conditions make for a very restful stay. The lake has competitive sailboat racing in the summer which provides some exciting sports viewing in the afternoon. The mountain and lake view from the house is priceless. The nearby fire pit hosted nightly bonfires where we roasted marsh mellows whenever we could. Access to your own private adjacent island allows for swimming and fishing anytime. This place is a jewel in the pristine Adirondacks.

"Wonderful combination of wilderness and comfort."

My wife and I stayed at Northpoint Camp earlier this Summer and had such a peaceful & relaxing time we are going back in Sept.! Wonderful combination of wilderness and comfort -- perfect for couples or for families with children. Leave the electronics behind and enjoy the peace, quiet and lonely calls of the wild loon. We watched 2 adults trying to teach their young one to dive and for 3 days it would only look beneath the surface as if to say it was still too dark and scary down there! Awesome!! Renew thyself each day with a swim at dawn and take in the full majesty of the night sky without town or city lights to disturb and enjoy a picnic atop Mt. St. Regis as we did. Hiking, swimming, canoeing, fishing all available -- bring in your provisions and you won't have to see a car for a week! On rainy days we read by the warm and crackling fire with our cups of hot coffee and thus they too were a joy. Northpoint Camp was home to the first year-round resident on Upper St. Regis Lake - a pioneer woman who travelled the world on hiking adventures and the cabin is appointed with Tibetan rugs, memorabilia, and her personal library. Staying here you are surrounded by a heritage and history which is a rarity in most standard rental arrangements -- a stepping back in time to a simpler yet harsher way of life which makes Northpoint a unique and educational experience. Lynn and Jim provide excellent hospitality and are discreetly available at all times to answer questions, give advice etc. Highly Recommended!! "There are none so happy as those who enjoy freely a vast horizon" Damodara as quoted bt H.D. Thoreau in Walden.

"The views of the lake and Saint Regis mountain were amazing."

My parents and I stayed at the lovely lakeside cottage. We arrived at the boat dock and were promptly whisked away to the cottage via boat by our welcoming hosts. We brought in lots of food and drinks. The cottage was beautiful inside and out. The views of the lake and Saint Regis mountain were amazing. We enjoyed a dinner of steaks cooked on the grill and a roasted marshmallows over the campfire at the fire pit. The cool mountain air provided a lovely nights sleep and the hot showers in the morning were fabulous. The cottage was cozy and decorated beautifully. All of the linens, cookware and essentials were available, and the beds were incredibly comfortable. We had a wonderful time and would highly recommend this cottage to any family looking for a beautiful mountain and lake vacation.
